On Tuesdays, or: Reflections of an Unproductive Mind

Is there any significance to receiving two fortunes in the same cookie?

“Your goal will be met in two months.”

“Investigate new possibilities with friends. Now is the time!”

I like the use of the imperative in the second fortune. It's not just a statement about the future, it's a command! Like the voice of God, but without any authority or relevance.

The (Vietnamese?) doughnut-style green onion cakes are much better than the usual pancake-style green onion cakes. Moist and yummy on the inside, golden and crispy on the outside.

(Special thanks to Kim, who picked up my cheque so I wouldn't be late to class. Yes, she owed me for last time we were at Elephant and Castle, but it was still a nice thought.)
