I ordered Thai food today and I decided to go to the little out of the way place that I know always makes good food, instead of the big chain one that opened up on Main Street. My best friend Kirsten and I always go to the small place, it's run by this really nice woman named Tammy. (There's even a photo of us up on the wall as frequent customers.)
So when I got there to pick up the food, she had these little roses in a vase and I was admiring them and smelling them. She told me they came from her garden and then she picked out two and gave them to me to take home! Wasn't that nice? The big restaurant wouldn't have done that. Oh yes, and last night I got orchids from one of Paul's students! So I have flowers everywhere now!
I've been in quite an Arthurian groove lately. I just finished The Book of Merlyn which was just great. It's the last part of T.H. White's Once and Future King volumes, which his publishers conveniently 'lost' since it was wartime and this book is an essay on the futility of war. Very interesting.
