if only some things were that easy to wait for

Hello, hello! I just had Pizza Hut for dinner, but because I am SUCH A Bum on Sundays, me and my brother ordered in! =D I think I had too much sugar cos now I'm feeling super high! There are No Lessons tmr cos it's the start of Hell Week for students, otherwise known as You-Don't-Pass-You-Might-Get-Retained Exams, otherwise known officially as EOY Exams 2007. I am feeling HIGH because there's nothing like sugar and oily food and eating until you want to barf. For the record, I forgot to eat dinner yesterday and only slept at 3am because I was surfing YouTube for classical songs! So when I woke up bright and early at 12pm, I decided that I should just cook myself some instant mee to fill my stomach which wasn't hungry. Then I did loads of marking! Now I only have about one-third of Ex14.1+14.2+14.3 to finish marking.

You've heard of 'road rage', yes? Where you get so pissed off by other people's shitty driving that you get angry? Do you know that there's something called 'marking rage'? It is the condition where you get so pissed off by student's work that you want to tear it up and throw it back and them. But you cannot, cos it has to go into their files (which reminds me, I must get them to do their filing one day after exams), and so you write big angry words such as, "UNITS???? STATEMENTS, PLEASE."

I wanted to go queue for donuts to satisfy my insatiable appetite for oily food that will make me fat because I feel like bingeing (how to spell?), but MotoBabe went to bake cookies with her mother instead BAH! So this is why donuts was compensated by pizza so cheesy it's simply a sin. I am going to get so fat!!! Like I'm not fat enough. But training, training! Now that I don't have to do so much teaching anymore, I will go back to training!

(If you're feeling really bored, you can go count the number of exclamation marks in this entry! Including this one! And this one, too!)

It is such an indescrible feeling when you click click around the internet in your extreme boredom (or extreme kaypoh-ness, whichever you want to term it) and find something that you wish you didn't need to see. Let me put it in another way, it's something that you kinda knew already but you didn't really want to know for sure. Actually I don't know for sure yet, but it's really incriminating, and really (u) (oh, go type that on MSN) to see.

What to do when the holidays come??? I won't have the tedium of staying in school from 7am to 7pm to kill time. And then have exhausted sleep, and then rinse and repeat. How how how? It is So Boring to sit at home and do nothing, because there's no one around to say, "Eh let's go out." I used to have that, then I decided that I didn't want it anymore.

Actually, the whole point of this entry is just to kill time because I don't really want to go back to my marking and go into marking rage again. Actually, the other point of this entry is that after waiting for someone for months, and then finally realising people change faster than the weather, that there's really nothing to look foward to, or to wait for, at all. At the end, you only have yourself to depend on, and that's how I am going to live! What revelation!

I should go pick up something else to learn, because I have such an addictive nature I will just throw myself into it.

Aiyah I ran out of steam liao. I will blog about my birthday the next time. Got pictures, k! But not a lot, and I look fat in most, so even less pictures for show and tell. Haha!

I'll leave you with a piano concerto by Rachmaninoff. ("Oh, that Russian dood!" -MotoBabe)

another quote

I'm dead tired. My feet hurt, and I've been wearing flats for the last week or so, ever since I was coerced by Motobabe into buying that pretty pair of flats from Novo two Saturdays ago. Motobabe is bad for my wallet. She convinced me to buy a dress the same day I blew *undisclosed amount* (cos I'm too embarrassed to mention it) on a Kurt Halsey hoodie.

I am absolutely ashamed of myself. I have no self-control. )=

It's already past the middle of September. Woe! Every September, something astonishingly bad happens. At least better than one of my friends who has some serious shit hitting him on his birthday. So much for cake and happy birthday songs.

The replacement car I'm driving now is an oldish Nissan Sunny. It is SUCH A MALE CAR. When I drive it, I feel like some lao ah lian trying to act tough, or an auntie housewife who has to drive her husband's love machine.

It's time for me to get my rest. TGIF, everyone!!!

I've been watching lots of Scrubs lately. Yes, I know it's passe, but it's still funny, nonetheless.

I like Dr. Cox's rants. He just goes on and on without breathing, and it's really funny.

J.D. is endearing, so cute!

Elliot is neurotic. I saw her in later seasons, and when she's made up, she's actually really pretty.

I like how sarcastic Jordan is, esp during the scene when she rats out everyone's secret.

Anyhow, here's a quote from Season 1 of Scrubs:

Relationships don't work the way they do on television and in the movies. Will they, won't they, and then they finally do and they are happy forever. Gimme a break. Nine out of ten of them end because they weren't right for each other to begin with, and half of the ones who get married get divorced anyway, and I'm telling you right now through all these stuff, I have not become a cynic. I haven't. Yes, I do happen to believe that love is mainly about pushing chocolate-covered candies and, you know, in some cultures, a chicken. You can call me a sucker, I don't care. Because I do. Believe in it. Bottomline, the couples who are right for each other went through the same crap as everybody else, but the big difference is that they don't let it take them down. One of those two people will stand up and fight for that relationship everytime if it's right and they're real lucky. One of them will say something.

Contrary to popular belief, you can actually see right after you get up from the 'operating table'. It was kinda cute, a miniature operating table, where all the lights are shone directly at your face. But it's not so cute when you're lying there with this shower cap and white scrubs staring at a little blinking red light.

At least the doctor was cute. I am not so pa jiao that I couldn't tell how cute the doctor was.

For the uninitated, LASIK is an acronym for Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis. And I went for this small surgery on my eyeballs yesterday. (ironic!) When I got up from the machine, the doctor asked me, "Now, can you look at the clock and tell the time?" And I could. I mean, it's blurry, but if I still had my original set of eyeballs, I wouldn't be able to see a thing. On hindsight, the doctor must have a good reason for putting that clock there, cos at the counter, the lady asked me what time my operation ended. There. I knew my doctor's smart as a whip.

And good-looking, too!

A contact lens was inserted into my eye yesterday to keep the flap, that the machine cut up, in place. So today I went back to get the lenses out. The doctor touched my eyeball! And commented on my eyelashes, along the lines of, "Do your eyelashes grow inwards like that?" Yes, doc, they do. Anyway, before seeing the doctor, my eyesight was checked by his pretty consultants. Apparently, I now have 6/9 vision. I'll have 6/6 vision pretty soon, according to my doctor. Man, 6/9 vision without visual aids of any sort was a DREAM. Now it's actually reality.

Plus I have a handsome doctor to look forward to for my follow-up checkups.

I also got a 'little souvenir'. They apparently took pictures of me on the table. Quite alarming, and a little bit odd. My mother said they took a few pictures. Bleargh. I'm fat fat fat. Once one week is over, I'll start some kind of exercise and diet routine. Fatness be gone!

Anyway, the important thing is that I can see pretty much clearly without any visual aids. The $3k++ (going to be around 4k) is worth it. Every single bit.

Especially with the extremely shuai doctor attending to my eye needs.
