* Ahoy there, readers in Kerala! I am going to be in your state! Actually, am going for the Kovalam Lit Fest again this year, this time as a tag-along and not an invitee. The plan was that I'd spend the three days just chilling at the Taj, something I didn't get a chance to do last year. But then my brain went into overload and not only did I offer to do a piece on the festival, I also called my publishers and asked if they would organise a book reading for me in Trivandrum. So, they did, and I am, and if you're in that city, please come on over and say hi! It's on the 9th of October at 5.30 pm at DC Books, 1st Floor, Karimpanal Statue Avenue, Statue Junction, Trivandrum. And it should be fun, promise. I'll only read for a little bit and we can chat for the rest of the time.
* Thank you all for coming through and commenting on the last post. I felt all loved again.
* The love of my life this week are lace up Doc Marten style, knee high boots. They're SO beautiful, even though they pinch my toes a weeny bit, what is pain when compared to style, right? (Okay, maybe a bit more than a weeny bit, but suck it up, toes! This'll make you stronger.) I got the idea of getting boots from this BRILLIANT new blog I have discovered (by 'discovered', I mean 'told about'). And she's like my shopping soul sister, practically, so I emailed her and we're going to meet soon! (In a non-stalker way, of course.) I tried to break in my new boots on a walk around town we did this Sunday, and the first hour went fine but by the end of it I was practically curled up in a ball and moaning. That's the tough part about boots, the breaking them in. I'm trying to wear them every day so by the end of it, they'll be all soft and comfortable.
* Oh yes, I remember now what else I promised to talk about. There's this Red Bull event that I'm going for, to watch a Formula One racer go up and down the Bandra-Worli sealink (Which, by the way? Is one of my top five most favourite bridges in the world.) Now, that's not usually my sort of thing, but I thought it might be fun to watch, so if there are any F1 fans amongst you, you should check it out too. It's on October 11, at 2 pm, and the driver's name is David Coulthard (and he's cute too). Here's a link to the website for more deets--but you should come and say hi and we can watch the car together.
