A friend the other day told me that some people have complained to him that my writing style changed with my working for the Inquirer. “Your sentencesÃ‚Â have become short,” was supposedly a typical observation. Oddly enough, my editor at the Arab News still complains about the length of my sentences.
Ho! Ho! Ho!
Seven days to Christmas. Please be reminded that ever blog you are in the habit of visiting deserves a holiday tip in their tip jar (usually a PayPal link such as this one, also at the lower right of this blog). And that many bloggers have Amazon Wish Lists, which have the things they’d really love to have, if only they could make more money (but they can’t, because they devote time to blogging). And while I hear some bloggers like BryanBoy make $2,000.00 a month from Google AdSense, us non-Fashionista and non-Foddie bloggers don’t. So a tip for the writer or a purchase of something on the wish list goes far to spread Holiday cheer and uplift the sagging Yuletide morale.

Check out what The Living Room Recommends! I think the next step will be organizing museum group visits which begin and end with a nice meal. It’s the only way to get people to leave the Malls and enter the cultural realm.
