I hit a patch. Or should I call it a block. There isn’t anything that I would really want to blog about, or perhaps the truth is that there isn’t anything that I deem worthy of sharing. Such is my life, running on a routine that most would categorise as staid but oh well, a life is a life.
The weekend that just passed had a slight twist from its usual route though. One of my friends was back in town to settle some big personal matters, and finally, after a great deal of effort, we managed to tie down a time to meet up. Originally, we had planned to head to Hard Rock Cafe, this outlet which I have only been to maybe all of once in my entire life, because Friday night was the night that the UnXpected plays there now. But the problem with wanting to catch live bands are that they typically start at timings that aren’t so friendly to me anymore. I find it an effort to stay out late, even if I can still stay up late at night at home, so 10pm that was the time they would start jamming seemed rather ambitious for me.
We spent a couple of hours chatting over coffee and shared a Banana Walnut Loaf at Coffee Bean, which we couldn’t finish between us, although in my case I was trying not to, i.e. control, whereas for her I think it’s a case of not being able to. Somehow, even with the smaller portions I eat now, my appetite and stomach space are still really healthy and generous. Hmm.
As I munched on these shoestring fries, my favourite type of fries, drenched and soaked in oil no less, looking at how the paper placed beneath the fries had turned soggy, I tried not to think of the detriment of consuming them. Obsession yes, but probably still not to the point of total abstention. My friend was having a sore throat that day, so you probably could guess it right, that for her, coupled with an appetite that is almost next to nothing, I wolved down most of the plate. These were the leftovers. Up to a point, somehow the oily-ness and unpleasant smell of stale oil got to me and I had to stop eating. So maybe, just maybe, my liking for fries has developed some limitations?
