With apologies to Ivan Albright, the artist who painted my favourite painting ever.
Things that have been easier to do since Thursday, rather than writing my first paper as a master's student (it's due in about 10 days):
- Take a 3-hour nap.
- Migrate my iTunes database onto an external hard drive.
- Back up all my hard drives.
- Update my Mac OS to Snow Leopard --- except that the upgrade had to be aborted failed due to a faulty disc (I bought it in Singapore months ago).
- Check out the new North Road Restaurant (very crisp and white), then wine and dine at Medcalf.
- Brave the cold and mud to catch the Guy Fawkes Day fireworks at Ravenscourt Park.
- Watch The Notebook (I heart Rachel McAdams).
- Mess around with Instagr.am (see image above).
- Figure out which herbs give the best zing to scrambled eggs.
- Cook Irish beef stew and pasta salad with green beans and mushrooms in one evening, hence ensuring I don't have to cook again till next weekend.
