Astounding mental blackout. Big sister tells me that Mother died on 9April,
not 4March, how odd that my mind contains such a lacuna...
Other nearby anniversaries: Wahine day 10 April
Titanic Day 14April
Yesterday at work: T. reported that her lump is a tumour, scheduled
for surgery on the 31stSeems like a long wait, even for this countries
decaying hospitals. I told he about my sister J's lumpectomy which went
OK to the extent that J is now approaching a Ph.D.
D, who used to work here, came in with her 6Month old adopted Korean son.
Large, alert, smiling, active, all round happy story. I was somewhat against
the idea of trans-oceanic adoptions, but the infant looks happy.
D & husband named him Johan, plan to inculcate Swedish,French,Aus culture, but
He looks a lot like Yoshi, the half Korean son of my Hipag sisters Asawa.,
(Shay is partner of Rizza, I suppose in Aus you would call them Lesbians.
The term is not used in Luzon, indeed the same-sex is not discussed much.
When Shay gets glammed up there are some jokes about how pretty she looks,
mainly from me I guess.)
D seemed relaxed, even with me. While working here she developed a strong
dislike of me, probably because I didnt pay enough attention. It was spooky
arriving at work for 2 years, saying "Hi D." and being greeted with a grunt.
Obnoxious people have their uses. She made a huge fuss one day about my
persistent bronchial cough, which she found intolerable. It did make me
aware that I should stop cigs completely, and cut back Dairy - the
"Incurable chronic Bronchitis" improved a lot.
In the interests of balance, today we bring you Hamas
the commander of the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, Muhammad Daif:
"The criminal Sharon was elected to smash our resistance in 100 days.
But now the man who once said Netzarim (a settlement in Gaza) was just
like Tel Aviv is planning to withdraw from Gaza without something in
return...This is a great prophesy of victory..."We have hit Israel
in its heart. Its economy is collapsing and its life has become
full of fear and horror,"
Become an Aus citizen, get protection from arbitrary detention...NOTFive British
held for two years at the US detention camp in Guantanamo Bay have arrived in London.
