Weekend Reading List
It's the weekend! I'm reading the funny, fluffy Where Angels Fear to Tread, wishing I could write like this. It's E M Forster at his sparkling and silly best. Why am I attracted silliness? This weakness has led me to no end of trouble, let me be frank. For instance, instead of scanning for a flat to buy on propertyguru.com, or indeed, blogging, I've wasted hours at the online forum Blowing Wind. When BG told me about it (lying in gutter and gazing at I-S classifieds, no doubt), I squeaked in delight, logged on and was instantly engrossed: My goodness, these people know how to have fun! I had no idea that our little city was such a hotbead of vice, what would E M make of it? There's plenty of unintended comedy of course (the very best kind), and the Singlish here is first-rate, and I laughed out loud alot. I suggest you ladies click over there for a good cackle. On a serious note: To prepare for my art class, I'm studying Goya, by Werner Hoffman, quite dark and chilling, and worlds apart from E M, BG and all the other rubbish.
