Our Weekend Memoirs: When old maids meet
Please scroll down for Sunday Stealing

A friend on the other side of the world mentioned this place. I discovered it's right down my backyard when I googled it. Since a co-old maid was game for a little exploration we went there last night. The name of this restaurant is apparently its most attractive feature.

We punctuated the food with conservative-wild observations of 21st century old maidenhood. Ah, there's my Screwdriver. Reliable in penetration.

"Don't these things come with a man?," we teased the server who gave us condoms instead of the usual mint candies after we settled the bill.

Sunday Stealing: The Majorly Personal Meme, Part The Last
Please scroll up for Our Weekend Memoirs

Today we ripped this meme off a blog that is written by a group of high school students. The blog is called Eternal Fireworks. The writers are: Michael, Kynan, Alex, Kenny, Chris, Leo, Shelley, Athy, Bam, Tina, and Bnita. There is no statement as to where it came from. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. It is a long meme and we shall do it in parts. Cheers to all of us thieves!

41. What are your plans for this weekend? Saturday I had dinner with a friend at Cabbages and Condoms, and today I am bracing for machineless marking of university exams

42. Do you think someone might be thinking poorly about you? Why might that be? I don't know and I don't care. My life is good.

42. What features don't you have that you would like on your cell? umm... speech bubble that blinks "to be paroled in a heart beat"

48. Would you, (or did you) prefer a small, intimate wedding reception, or a big-scale, over-the-top reception? The Thai flag was waving at the in-laws' residence during my wedding reception.

53. Can a man and woman be friends without having feelings for each other? why are 'feelings' always assumed in a man-woman friendship?

Wow, what a restaurant name!!

I vote 100% of their after dinner giveaway instead of the usual mint! The name is very inviting and sure would attract lots of customers.

Wah! my laundry lady is on vacation for a month so my laundry is already piling up!

Grin. The things you can learn from FFF. I had to reread the sentence to make sure I really read "condom."

I also love the smell after a rain.

Sense and Sensibility: 200th anniversary

In 1811 Thomas Egerton of Whitehall, London published Sense and Sensibility. Quick math shows it has been two centuries since Jane Austen became a full-fledged author.

Quite an anniversary, indeed. A celebration, I declare.

Blogs regarding the publication anniversary of this romance novel picture Jane Austen's engagements whilst making the final touches of her manuscript from Sloane Street. In letters to her sister Cassandra, Jane gave accounts of her shopping for muslin, the party that their brother Henry and SIL Eliza gave; mentioned several acquaintances, and referred to her book as S and S.

As a fan I wonder which between sense and sensibility did JA deem more important since she portrayed both attributes equally well. I'm obliged to enthuse over my S & S reading experience. Alas, I only managed fourteen chapters before getting sidetracked by another novel, the very first that JA wrote. I will resume and complete my affair with the celebrant before 2011 ends.

The Rumford is a much more efficient way to heat a room than earlier fireplaces....(Wikipedia on Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, designer of tall, shallow fireplaces which are now known as the Rumford, was an Anglo-American physicist known for his investigations of heat)Living in the tropics, I have been in close proximity with only three fireplaces in my life. There was an unused one in the home of my college professor in the Philippines. The other one from which I could feel the heat and see the fire dancing was in a hotel lobby in the Yorkshire Moors. Picture taking was quick. Two old ladies were having tea by it, but that was my first ever real fireplace experience, and I loved it. The latest I have touched is the one in Jane Austen's imaginary Northanger Abbey.
The fireplace, where she had expected the ample width and ponderous carvings of former times, was contracted to a Rumford, with slabs of plain though handsome marbles, and ornament over it of the prettiest English ch…
