I thought it’d be a good idea to cap off last night with a chicken murtabak from the little curry joint just down the road. Normally, this is a pretty good idea – it’s not too expensive, and it’s exceptionally filling. Last night, I got the dodgy chicken. Ooog.
So I spent most of the day feeling sorry for myself and stacking my new bookshelf. Since I moved into the apartment (over two months ago), I’ve had a mountain of books, CDs, and DVDs sitting on the floor waiting for a home – which they now have.
Most of the pile was stuff I scooped up and jammed into the twelve boxes that the removalists took; I didn’t have time to look through it, so there were a few interesting finds in there. Most notably:
- A discussion paper (more like a book) from the Victorian Parliamentary Law Reform Commission, entitled The Powers of Entry, Search, Seizure and Questioning by Authorised Persons. It’s more effective than Ambien;
- Teach Yourself Perl 5 in 21 Days. Dave, I think this is yours;
- Two copies of Eat the Rich, by P.J. O’Rourke.
