I’m on leave tomorrow, as I have to bring Dad to the hospital for a neurology appointment. Since I don’t need to wake up early, I can afford to stay up a wee bit later than usual tonight.
Work has been better lately, with Jane coming back from her maternity leave. I’ve passed her work back to her, with profuse apologies of course, for messing up all her stuff. XD Ey, at least I tried to keep it nice and tidy! It’s just not easy to juggle 2 persons’ work for three months, you know… hmph. Well anyway, it’s back to normal for me! Yay, no more whining on Sundays about having to go work the next day. :D
Just met Ka Wai and Yeh Yun for dinner last Thursday. Pei Fong was supposed to join us as well, but she was totally overworked and couldn’t make it the last minute. We headed to Sushi Tei at Raffles City (again – I kinda realised our meet ups were there most of the time o_O), and caught up with each other over dinner. Yun will be coming back for good at the end of this year, and Ka Wai is still happily married with some *cough*goodnews*cough*. (That’s an obvious hint already, right? XD)
As usual, gossips and rumours went around the table, and some giggles here and there. It’s hard not to laugh or smile when I’m with them. They knew what the right things are to say to crack me up, and my 冷笑话 never fails to crack them up either. I have to say, I really treasure my friendship with these three ladies. They are the only people from AHS whom I’ve regularly kept in touch with (with the exception of Chang Yuan). Even with Facebook, I didn’t have a lot of AHS friends in my Friends list, because they only knew me by my Chinese name, not my Christian name which I used in my Facebook profile.
Of course, I could always have taken the initiative to add them and say “Ooooh, I’m Yanming! Remember?!?” But uh… I’ve only friended a few of them that way. All the others… well, never mind. I’m quite sure they won’t remember who I am anyway. :D
On the same note, I wonder if how many of those people who are going for the OldSkool Gamer gathering that Sue organised over Facebook will remember or even know who “Scottie” is? Haha… I’m quite apprehensive about attending the gathering, to be honest. I was part of the gaming community for such a short period… and I was so low profile that I’m sure I’m just “one of the faces” in the crowd all the time, despite being part of the Khabal committee. Oh well, we’ll see how it goes, if I’m able to make it for the gathering. :P
Oh yeah, for those who are concerned, baby Dylan will be due… in a few weeks’ time. I’ll be a 小姨 soon! I’ve already bought a “gift” for Dylan… hope he’ll appreciate it! I think I’ll dote on him a lot, but don’t expect me to carry or hug him… I don’t like kids. Or babies, in this case. I don’t like to be near them, especially if they are unattended. If one comes crawling towards me, I’ll run. Doesn’t matter whether he’s my nephew or not. No unattended babies near me. (Sis, you hear that? :x)
I need a new computer, dang it. This one is lagging a lot on me, thanks to all the too-many-to-count files under the Documents and Settings folder. I’m just too lazy to move them to other folders, so… they’ll be sitting there till I manage to haul my lazy ass to SLS and grab a new CPU (Shinji, remember to get me all the latest parts! I want Quad-Core!! *waves fist* :D ) and a spanking new huge LCD monitor.
Gah, it’s also because of this super-slow machine that I’ve lost interest in playing my rogue and priestess in WoW. At least I don’t feel like playing at home. My PC at Reko’s place is like a space rocket compared to this big clunky ’60s Beetle. Maybe I should try moving my iTunes libary over to that PC some day and see if it will lag like this… This PC, after all, is not that bad if it could Doom 3 with no lag… (Okay, I know that game is super old, but still.)
Bleh. Nevertheless, life’s still pretty good for me. Though, a new PC will make my life better. =D
