Some censuring Readers will scornfully say, why hath this Lady writ her own life? Since none cares to know whose daughter she was or whose wife she is, or how she was bred, or what fortunes she had, or how she lived, or what humor or disposition she was of? I answer that is true, that 'tis to no purpose to the Readers, but it is to the Authoress, because I write it for my own sake, not theirs. ~Margaret Cavendish in 1655

The rainy season is here!

Yeah! I am so happy that the monsoon has burst into action and there is rain and more rain in the foreseeable future! Yes, I had to wade through water this morning to get to a CNG on my way to work, but it's cool out! Yeah!!!! It great weather to stay in bed and read fluffer novels. Or even, non-fluffers. Just to lay about and read. Also, all of the 'Deshi ladies are cooking kitchori, which is my favorite! It's rice and dhal cooked together with spices and tons of tumeric, so your hand is yellow after eating. With a nice hard-boiled egg that's been fried in coconut milk, is really the best. Yummmm! Just make sure that everything is aired out and if it's cotton, then send it to the ironing shop to be pressed. Enjoy this late start to the monsoon. ~Laura
