I don’t know about the rest of you, but I have had it with the PPP/PML-Q, PML-Q/PML-N, PPP/PML-N/PML-Q coalition rumors, and since most of us in Pakistan have the day off today, hence here’s a bunch of links to keep everyone happy, until the electricity goes out.

First up, the lovely Aysha Raja, who runs the fantastic book store The Last Word [in Lahore and Karachi], has written an op-ed about the short story competition Life’s Too Short. You can read the op-ed here and log on for more details about the competition here.

Secondly, Sylvia Plath’s son has committed suicide. Okay, that really wasn’t happy news.
