At long last…

40-inch flat screen HDTV behemoth has arrived, dwarfing everything in the living room and making us look like the kind of people who think nothing of spending entire weekends watching football games on ESPN.

Am quite happy, however, because now I know where hubby will be every minute of the weekend for AT LEAST the next year or two šŸ™‚

Reading at Redwood City Main not too bad. Indulged in my penchant for digressive prattle, stopping frequently in midst of reading (“Mountains”, a story I read in its entirety for the first time– Wait a minute, found myself thinking, why does this sound like memoir???) to comment on this or that aspect of Philippine history. Felt quite comfortable because no member of family in audience, and friends numbering only two: Martha and Edwin.

The rest were: teacher from Menlo College, Gil Patterson; nice Redwood City Librarian who arranged the reading, Roz; member of Library Board Rudy M.; and a sweet old lady who sat patiently and waited for at least 15 minutes for the reading to start and afterwards stretched out a quavering hand to purchase a copy of my first book, GINSENG AND OTHER TALES FROM MANILA.

I had fun. I talked about manananggals and lizards. Impaktas and Kapris. The Baltimore museum I fell in love with on last week’s trip. Baguio and Masferre.

Excellent, excellent, excellent …
