looking like a clown

two nights ago, i got bitten by some damned bug and it left the tip of my nose itchy and swollen. obviously like most normal people do, i scratch at it, and must have scratched at it a couple more times when i fell asleep. woke up with a big red spot (now wound, rather than insect bite) on my nose. it stings, and i look damn silly.

but that said, this has proven to be a pretty good week: busy busy busy then the quiet weekend with the dogs. pepper and scottie are both well, learning to walk, which is driving all of us mad because this learning comes with sound effects. maybe they have just gotten more vocal, i am not sure, but it sure ain’t funny.

anyway, things are great, things are great. the pea and i attended a security fair at the MBS and we ran into Ms LYH; and oddly enough, it was very civil, or maybe even nice! the pea says that’s my wishful thinking– but it really was good enough for me.  i always told her i hoped she found some peace– and i truly meant it, and you know, i think she has. she looks much better now; and more importantly, i think she’s made some pretty important life decisions that she is enjoying! wonderful, really case-in-point, time really heals all wounds.

nice closure huh, thought you’d be so glad to hear, clarebear.

anyway, i’ve just about given up on trying a semblance of a relationship with certain people; i dont see why we all put up this song and dance, and pretend to be close when really we are not. it is nobody’s fault, neither yours, yours, yours or mine.  what is wrong with just being acquaintances. i could live with that.

dont worry my darlings roys and tien, i love you both very very much still. see how wonderful, despite how little we meet, i hold you two both very very close to my heart. or my cedar girls. we dont need to meet often to feel close– but when we do meet, we dont have to pretend.


be my sex bomb

oh to be lean and lithe; been a long time– maybe even never.

okay, i’ve said before: flat is the new beautiful; seeing this picture i totally agree, again. le sigh.

i’ve finally found out where all the weight i’ve put on came from: corn. corn. corn. i am a sucker for corn. in the past 2 months i’ve eaten so much corn, especially when i am having lunch at home– i usually get our helper to prepare me a BOWL of buttered corn– haha– and i have just learnt how much that weighs up (pun intended).

there used to be a time, in my not-so-distant-past that we’d sit, bikinis on the beach, sand under our feet. its been a long time. i blame the pea– all those nightly suppers of peanut butter and prata. he has since stopped eating suppers; i, having the more addictive personality– clearly haven’t.

coupled with the fact that i gave up my gym subcription to put the money towards our travelling fund –and because lets face it.. i dont use the facilities as often as i should given the unlimited classes package i bought. calculating it out, i end up paying even more per class if i paid ala carte. not to mention the unpleasant last lesson where the lady next to me brushed her sweat on my arm. not a fan of other people’s sweat, thankyouverymuch.

time to shape up. :(

our quiet weekend

last week was the pea’s birthday weekend; and when i mean weekend, i mean he had parties the entire weekend. lunch and dinner. hoo boy; was quite some weekend, but well, we survived and although we are rather pooped out still, we have decided to take this weekend as our quiet weekend– no plans, thankyouverymuch.

largely cos well, i started on a new series (thanks for recommendation yux! i am loving it!) and i want time to just sit there and W-A-T-C-H—T-V.  and all the pea craves for is uninterrupted time to build his empire (CIV5)

i wanted to write a long reflective post, but the day is warm and my eyelids are heavy. my fingers are sluggy and now i am off to bed.
