I had my first bag Sunday on the way to Croydon. 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 various British 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!
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?
