Win some, lose something...

the sale came and went.

it is the only time that i had spent so little at a book sale. i was going to say that maybe the selection wasn't there or due to the fact that i went late..But maybe it was me.. instead of the usual early beaver or even due to the fact that i hadn't had much time to read. i wish that it was a simple matter of just allocating time.. but recently.. i don't seem to be able to muster the interest to read any of the books that i had bought/ borrowed recently. instead.. just vegeing out.. watching tons of mtv ... lazing around... going for walks...

but .. i did get some books.. though honestly speaking i don't know when i will be reading them.

Uncle Tungsten : Memories of a Chemical Boyhood by Oliver Sacks
The Gangs of New York by Herbert Asbury
The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold
Hoot by Carl Hiaasen
The Girl Who Played Go by Shan Sa, Adriana Hunter (Translator)

And.. my best buy...
The Rule of Four by Ian Caldwell, Dustin Thomason

it was only at S$5

despite of getting good buys... i lost something.. a tiffany earring to be exact.. naturally it was a gift.. and it wasn't the first time that i had lost it. i had gotten a replacement after i'd lost my earring the first time round. And losing it a second time round is really upsetting.

Maybe it's a sign...

i don't think that i will get it replaced at all.. just leave it be.. got to keep reminding myself...旧的不去, 新的不来
