Is there any etiquette while riding public transportation regarding reading material? I don’t know what it is, but when I’m reading something, it bugs me when my neighbor turns their head and starts reading. It happens a lot when I’m reading a magazine. It even happens when I’m reading a book somtimes.

It’s not that I don’t like to share, but somehow I feel all self-conscious when that happens. Are they judging the material that I read? It’s probably just me but I thought I’d air out my feeling on that.

For the first time in a long time, I actually felt a little restless at work. Usually, the pace of work is so quick that the day kinda just flies by. Today on the otherhand, I didn’t have a bunch of deadlines. I’m not complaining one bit, because I’m enjoying the “slow” period right now. I’m sure things will ramp up soon enough.

I don’t often remember my dreams, but while walking to work today, I remembered that I dreamt I smoked pot. Heh, weird. I’ve never smoked before so I wondered what it could possibly mean. I wonder if those dream books has anything on pot. Heehee.

So I’m going to visit one of my friends in Canada this weekend and when I asked him if there’s anything that he would like me to bring, he said a dozen Krispy Kreme donuts. He mentioned that they don’t have any KKD in the area. In later emails, it somehow changed to TWO dozen donuts. When I asked him about it, he said something to the effect that he has a lot of people he wants to make happy.

That made me think of a recent episode of Fraiser. So Fraiser and his brother Niles found some really high quality caviar for really cheap. Then all of their friends would offer them favors to get their hands on the caviar (opera box, estate visit, etc.). I think my friend is trying to use these donuts to get on the good graces of his pals since the nearest KKD is on the other side of the country.

All I know that it’ll be WAY hard to bring 2 dozen donuts onto an airplane and not want to eat them during the flight. I mean, what if I get hungry? What if somebody offers me money for one? What if somebody steals one while I’m sleeping? I better guard them closely.

Son of a #$*@(!*!#. I was writing a check and after I tore the check out of my book, I got a “paper” cut from the back cover of the checkbook. Grrrr… I guess it’s just one of those things.

So I went clubbing for the first time in a long time yesterday. I actually had fun although I felt detached from the main crowd. I guess after a while, you grow out of the clubbing phase. Somehow, I felt older than most of those people there although agewise, I’m sure I’m somewhere in the middle.

Then what really surprised me was how short so many of them were. Sure, I wore my 1.5 inch heel boots but golly, on the dance floor, I could see the tops of people’s heads (girls & guys included). I ACTUALLY felt kinda tall for once. BTW, I’m at the tree-like height of 5′5″. Isn’t that funny?

Woohoo! My trip is one week away! Hmm… I better start packing soon. So how many days/hours in advanced is normal to pack your things for a trip? I’ve been made fun of for beginning my preparations a week or so ahead of time. I say that would decrease the risk of forgetting something.

Woah, I think I’m still a little hard of hearing right now. I just got back from watching the Erasure concert tonight. The performance was great! Now I must catch some zzzs.

Have a great weekend to all.

Aw man… I went climbing today (courtesy of Amabelle’s guest pass, THANKS!) and I totally got my butt kicked by the walls. I suppose the 2 week break I had didn’t help me at all. Looks like I’ll have to try and stay in better shape.

While waiting at my stop this morning, I saw this girl kinda standing around. A few seconds later, I pigeon landed nearby and started to walk around. I noticed that the girl started to take a few steps away from the pigeon. As the pigeon walked in her direction, she’d kinda sidestep away. Heehee, I thought that was amusing to see since she appeared to be afraid.

Hey, yet another one of my pics has been used on some random site. Actually, it’s a discussion board. It’s a picture of a smore, or rather, a pre-smore. heehee.

Rats. One of my friends was very clever and did not look at the list of annoying songs that get stuck in your head. Heehee.

I was having lunch with one of my friends today and she was telling me that she finally set a wedding date. Woohoo!! The thing is though, it wasn’t really her decision or her fiance’s, it was their parents. Golly, why is it in many Asian families that the wedding turns into the parents’ grand party?

I responded by saying something apparently naive like, “Isn’t it YOUR wedding? Shouldn’t it be about what YOU want?” To that, she responded, “Just wait until it’s your turn.”

I sat there and thought about it, and I am sure that my parents would want to invite all their friends and all of our super extended relatives. After all, I’m sure I’ll be the first in my family to get hitched (even though I am the youngest child). The first one is always special. It’s kinda like when my oldest sib was born. My parents threw a party! Did I get one? Nope, although I wouldn’t have remembered anyways.

I’ve always thought of myself as being different than others. When it’s my day, I’m going to do things my way, but still respect what my parents would suggest. That is of course, unless they help chip in. Heh.

And so the fighting begins. I wonder how long it will be this time.

Holding On

Me: “How do you know when to hold to on a relationship?”
J: “When you feel it’s right. You just know.”

Here we go again with the you just know. I’ve had it in my mind that a relationship should be easy. That somehow, two people who are right for each other fit. They complement one another and also are one and the same.

Then on the other hand, nothing is perfect. People have off days and so you’ll get into disagreements. Sometimes differences of opinions could be bad for the relationship. The thing is, when something like this comes up, what do you do? Do you try to work it out or do you just end it? That was the basis of the conversation I was having with one of my friends today.

When is a relationship worth fighting for?

I suppose it’s worth fighting for when the fundamentals are solid. That these differences are only superficial. It’s kinda like a house in a way. You need a solid foundation to last a long time. Your framework needs to be pretty solid so that even if the surface changes or the colors may clash, in the end, you still have a house. Hmm.. I don’t think I did a very good comparison but I hope you get my point.

Tomorrow is another day. Halfway through the week. Woohoo!
