The hot stallions going into hibernation?
Still.... so much for the faint hope that the enceinte ladies have all given up their precious burdens on Merdeka Day. Seems like more than a handful have lost possession of their timely calendars and have missed that auspicious date - with similarly stubborn babies who are desperately clinging on to the warmth and safety of the womb. Or perhaps even some technical-minded baby zealots who insist that Malaysia was actually born on a later date in September ( rather than the much celebrated date in August ).
Whatever myriad reasons they are holding on to, there seems to be a seeming avalanche of deliveries today - and what that means is I'm half exhausted by dinner time. Pretty sure Paediatrics is full to the brim with gurgling babies.
Although that also means that I have had the time to finish three-quarters of the Morrigan's Cross, the latest paperback from the shockingly prolific Nora Roberts. Yeah, I'm a terribly scary speed-reader ( unless you're talking about boring, serious-minded tomes of medicine ) and I devour cheap paperbacks like so much candy. Just get so involved sometimes that it's nigh impossible to put down the book!
Just an added note here but I'm so glad that Kinokuniya has put me on their mailing list! How cool to find out that one of my favourite books, the Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time has a sequel! Always thought that the book deserved a better ending.
