today after visiting my grandmother in hospital i went to henk's place. he's my best male friend. he's such a sweet guy. if i haven't told you that before, then i should have. we always have such a wonderful time together..

he got me a present, even though my birthday is not until january. a book. a really big book. the journals of sylvia plath 1950-1962.. i didn't know that was available, so i never looked for it myself. but i love it! i've always liked that sort of thing: books of letters, journals, (auto)biographies.. what do you call them? egodocuments?

we talked about my grandma, philosophy, popper, george soros.. & raised a belated toast in honour of castro's 80th birthday. no rum & cigars. with a glass of white wine! and we also had tea with half a quiche lorraine each..

i need to delete a few items from my amazon wish list. i think i'm going to do that right now and then it's off to bed..

I wish I still had friends as literate as you. The last time I had a discussion about Popper was in grad school.

well with two or three friends i can talk about stuff like that. now don't think we're a bunch of stuck-up intellectuals.. :p

yep, year of the rabbit...I'll be 31 in just over a month.

and don't worry, I realize you aren't stuck-up. besides, there are lots of snobs out there with no knowledge of the vienna circle.
