Fait Accompli

31st August 2004 – Tuesday
47th Independence Day

It’s only 8.10am and I have had a breakfast of half plate of leftover fried rice, a toast and a half-boiled egg plus tea. Last night I slept at 1.00am and woke up this morn at 6.50am. Well, for a girl who is used to doing her grocery shopping at 7-11 in the wee hour of the morning, this is certainly the closest to normality she can get. I can now feel the stretch of the whole day awaiting my venture, hopefully it won’t be as heaty as yesterday. I feel very healthy today, some wali must have been praying for me, thank thee.

Last night I saw my Alpha Male on the news, a brief 4 seconds or so but enough to cause my heart, if I still have one, to leap with mixed feelings. I’ve not seen him for 7 months and 2 days, and was surprised to see the changes in him. Although 7 months of waiting seems like eternity to me, I still think that the physical changes in him are too abrupt. Physiologists may say that his biological clock is rapidly ticking at an increased rate, but to me he looks more distinguished than ever.

I am not entitled to whine regarding our lack of rendezvous, for the truth is he has requested and indicated to meet me a few times throughout the 7 months but somehow I was not able to comply. I’ve played my part as well, requesting to meet him in Feb, March and April but our timing was not really in sync. By now, I have resigned our fate to fate. All has been written down for us. We are just playing our parts in the cosmic coreography.

I finished reading Look at Me in just 2 sittings and am well into my third Brookner now. The prize-winning Hotel du Lac. Interesting and perceptive. I found that she’s very Austenesque in this novel. Perhaps the commentator of Making Things Better only read Hotel du Lac and assumes that Brookner is consistent in her writing style that he described her latest novel as Austenesque, which is not really accurate. So here’s my opinion :-

Anita Brookner’s …

1. Making Things Better – would only be readable to someone who already appreciates Brookner. I will read it again later, or at least continue reading from where I left off.
2. Look at Me – marvelous reading, extremely well written. I rate it 9 out of 10 for its genre.
3. Hotel du Lac - it won the Booker Prize, so I need not comment.
