Just before I got on the MRT, I reconsidered my choice of book once more. I always read on the train; but even though I had brought a book out, I had been mulling over that fact throughout the day that I had only brought out one book: John Grisham's The Partner, and had been... Continue Reading →
At the start of our relationship, being new to this game of love, I sought all avenues of expertise asking what I had gotten myself into. One thing that was mentioned more than once was that we were going to go through a honeymoon period and that I should enjoy it while it lasts. Reality... Continue Reading →
Today I ran an impossibly difficult 15km. An impossibly difficult 15km. Who would have thought? I'd always considered myself a runner (not a jogger, mind you), and one who was as serious about running as recreational runners got. 15km? It's a short distance. 21km is a middle-distance run, and 42km and above is long-distance. Unfortunately,... Continue Reading →
I just like to say thank you to Skype for reversing my order! Though it took a day longer than I would have liked (every hour felt like an eternity), my wrongful purchase of a service I hadn't quite wanted was finally reversed. Great service overall; and I'm one happy camper. 🙂

I'd log onto Facebook, learn2type.com or perhaps powertyping.com and do their typing tests, pretending -- wishing -- the words I typed spewed from my own... Continue Reading →
I stumbled across this rather cute picture over at unemploymentality.com. It's the truth behind the picture that makes it just oh-so-funny.
Today the balloting results are out ger ger! I hope we win! Update: We didn't win... the good news is that in a year's time we'll be up for a $5,000 government grant when we apply. Until then, loving you always ger ger!
I came across an article by Walter E. Williams, an economics professor from George Mason University, discussing how grades in American Universities have been going up, causing "grade inflation". For example, a "C" grade, he says, should be taken to mean an "F". Though I do have an intuitive belief that grades are going up... Continue Reading →
"A penny for your thoughts," I said. "Hmm," I thought out loud, "if I had a penny every time I said that..." I paused to think through all the times I used this oft-used phrase. "I think I'd have two cents."
