I had my first bag Sunday on the way to Croyon. Aneez and I settled into the PieShaker on our way to meet our cousins Shireen and Rehaana for lunch. We happily discovered that there was a game on the back of each tasty bag. Considering our foray into the world of Jenga Extreme from the night before, it was fun to see this:
I sense a rematch on the horizon.
We met up with our cousins and headed to the town centre. As we walked over to MISO Noodle House for lunch we passed a British Heart Foundation Charity Shop. I love treasure hunting at the various Charity Shops and came away with two great finds. First, was this book entitled, "The Ants Are My Friends: Misheard Lyrics, Malapropisms, Eggcorns and Other Linguistic Gaffes."
Oddly enough, I had just been telling Vanessa that I thought that TLC's "Chasing Waterfalls" was about a boy named "Jason Waterfall." There is no mention of Jason Waterfall in my charity shop book but I know what I heard...
I also found this amazing travel pouch for jewellery. I had packed in a bit of a rush and relegated my accessories to this Ziploc below:
Post purchase - VOILA!
Dave Goreman's "Sit Down, Pedal, Pedal, Stop and Stand Up (Only Without the Pedal, Pedal Bit) Tour" at The Anvil Theatre in Basingstoke. It was one of the funniest, most intelligent and brilliant comedy shows I have ever seen. Thanks Vanessa! And as a bonus to the night, Aneez and I discovered what Billy Ocean has been up to.
Looking good Billy!
On Monday, I spent the day with me! I slept in, went into the town centre, engaged in some retail therapy and went for a walk with my iPod. When I was in the town centre, my phone ran out of juice. I kept asking strangers for the time. Everyone I asked seemed overly happy to be able to provide me with the time. The people of Basingstoke are a kind bunch. Just as I was heading out of the town centre, I looked up and saw the clock tower that had been there the whole time!
Monday ended with a lovely Green Curry Chicken dinner prepared by yours truly. There was enough curry for the three of us and enough rice for a baseball team. I'm not sure what happened there but it was delicious!
I wonder if rice would make a good side dish for Hula Hoops?
