Report: Book Swap Meet VI  
So! I just got back.

We met up - aLiya, Irene Q, Yee Pei, chiQ, xXx, Adrian, Danny Lim, and graceshu - had plenty of coffee, mindless/articulate chatter, birthday songs, surprise gifts! [thx, yp!], exchanged stories, lame jokes, 'alternative' innuendos, phone contacts, and of course - swapped books [and vcds/dvds =P]!

The others were rather punctual - Irene was there at exactly 3pm, but I er. was delayed for about an hour due to unforseen *ahem* "circumstances" ;) but everything turned out okay - even if we did have a couple of hastily sent mobile texts/nervous phone calls prior to my arrival.

An estimated 30 to 40 books were brought today, and perhaps about 30 - 35 exchanged hands. I was too jittery [and excited] by my two mugs of black coffee to actually pretend to assume the responsiblity of keeping track - even though someone did give me a half completed list of titles! =P Ah. Well.

We dismissed ourselves at about six. The others headed for home, but some of us adjourned to a nearby mamak for dinner and drinks.

It was quite pleasant, although [a] certain individual[s] [was?]were twitchy, nervous and paranoid from the caffeine overdose - and the mamak was relatively new, had bad lighting [can see facial pores, etc!] and was [disturbingly?] sterile and had like weird roti planta [with sugar?] and a couple of really odd gaps of silences.

It was a weird day - for me anyway. But I thought it was rather fun[ny].

I think.
Okok. Gtg flush caffiene out of system now. Bais.
[Watch this space for the Book Swap Meet VII - Oct 31st!]
