Friday, 8th September '06
I was so great to get that last tag from Bec. I haven't heard from her in more than a year. Which is a heck of a long time, when you think about it. I feel like I've been back in Singapore for ages, and it shocks me to think that -hey!- it's almost 4 months since coming back.
In anycase, I'm sitting in the Law School study room, and evidently I haven't quite yet grasped the concept of what the STUDY room is for. Aside from blogging, I'm simultaneously listening to Keith Urban (who'd have thought I'd be listening to country music?!) and waiting for Liang to CALL ME so that I can "judge" her practice moot (a process I'm woefully unprepared for. It's harder to do than you'd think) and whilst reading her memorial, being amused that their main reference is the Kindred International Law text (I loved Kindred, he's such a nice sincere old man, he taught me at Dalhousie, and he likes Singaporeans so it all works out). Oh yes, and I'm savouring the fact that I finally have a few minutes to myself to do something as long as a quiz just because I want to, and just because it was Bec who left me the tag to do it.
I'll be the first to admit guiltyly that I don't read her blog enough. I really don't.
But here goes anyway:
1. WHAT MADE YOU SMILE YESTERDAY?
Chatting with Limin over a dinner of oyster meesua / crispy chicken from the Shilin Taiwanese Street Snacks place at the new (old?) Cathay. We laughed at our mutual bitching, and the question of which Smubs we would date and/or marry if there was a worldwide calamity and everyone else died. I also enjoyed throughly befundling her with the concept of renvoi, and then laughing at her because the Azzuri lost to France. La Revanche indeed!
2. WHAT WERE YOU DOING AT 8 THIS MORNING?
Sitting in the car on the way to school. Browsing my International Law lecture notes from Halifax in a valient attempt to make sure I can keep up with Liang's moot. Seeing as I can't find her and it's an hour after I was supposed to meet her, I think I should have taken a nap instead.
3. WHAT WERE YOU DOING 15 MINUTES AGO?
Updating the Law IV website, and changing my MSN nick to reflect that the Next Wave tickets are fast selling out! Whee!
4. SOMETHING THAT HAPPENED TO YOU IN 1995?
I BROKE THE TOOTH. For the FIRST TIME. Haha. Without a doubt the most eventful thing of the year. Especially since it all came flashing back during the frozen maple syrup incident in Quebec.
5. LAST THING YOU SAID ALOUD?
"Hey, hi..." As I bumped into Jo and Rachel in the corridor. How unexciting. I would much have preferred to have said something offensive like "Sod off, B*tch!" or at least something cool like "Mari-Mac's mother's making Mari-Mac marry me!". Which is incidentally my favourite song of the moment! Yeah, I think with all the piling up of the dance show committments and the school work, I'm really missing slacking in Halifax.
6. HOW MANY DIFFERENT THINGS DID YOU DRINK TODAY?
Water, sweet lassi (from Mr Prata), pear juice (Jia's surprising new idea).
7. WHERE IS YOUR BEST FRIEND(s) RIGHT NOW?
All over the place... I don't really have best friends, but the most important ones are really distributed all over the world studying.
8. WHAT COLOR IS YOUR TOOTHBRUSH?
Yellow and white, with a blue indicator stripe down the transverse section of the bristles.
9. WHAT IS OUT YOUR BACK DOOR?
Don't remind me that I don't have one lah!
10. LAST THING YOU BOUGHT?
This is not fair. This quiz is making me look nerdy. Technically it was the photocopies of William Cornish's Cases and Materials on Intellectual Property.
11. LAST GIFT YOU RECEIVED FOR YOUR BIRTHDAY?
Probably a sponsored bus ride from the Oxford Theatre back to the YMCA from Alex Merz. It was the last gift because it was at least 2 weeks belated, and it was just me borrowing money that he wouldn't let me return.
12. WHAT COLOR IS YOUR FRONT DOOR?
Previously a light, soothing pale mint green. Now thanks to the enthusiatic HDB painters, a jarring shade of ORANGE.
13. WHERE DO YOU KEEP YOUR CHANGE?
I consider I'm pretty good with getting rid of it fast.
14. WHATS THE WEATHER LIKE TODAY?
Hot as hell. It's Singapore, dude.
15. BEST ICE CREAM FLAVOR?
16. SOMETHING YOU’RE EXCITED ABOUT?
That in just over 2 weeks from now I will have my Saturday nights again! Haven't had them since like the middle of July. It's been excruciating, I tell you.
17. LAST RAINBOW YOU SAW?
Out of the window of the tour bus, June 1999, in Perth, Australia. Singapore don't get rainbows. WHY?
18. WHAT SIZE SHOE DO YOU WEAR?
Um. Track shoes are 8.5 (with orthotics), fake Birkenstocks are 9 (without orthotics. Yeah I don't understand either), dance sneakers are 9, foot unDeez are L, character shoes are 5.5.
19. DO YOU HAVE ANY SISTERS?
20. ARE YOU VERY RANDOM?
21. DO YOU WANT TO CUT YOUR HAIR?
Yeah, I have a $20 voucher from Hair Plus Studio to spend.
22. ARE YOU OVER THE AGE OF 22?
5 months and 6 days over. Bec, are you sure you got your math right? You're older than me lah.
23. DO YOU TALK ALOT?
24. DO YOU WATCH THE OC?
I haven't missed an episode yet!
25. WHAT DAY DOES YOUR SCHOOL END THIS YEAR?
I dunno, the day of my Principles of Conflict of Laws exam.
26. DOES YOUR SCREEN NAME HAVE AN ''X ''IN IT?
27. DO YOU KNOW ANYONE CALLED STEVE?
How about that giant serpent we made for rag? His name was Steve. Or one of the hair assistants at Hair Plus.
28. DO YOU MAKE UP YOUR OWN WORDS?
If Bec's "pf vpitdr" is a word, I thought I came up with that!
29. ARE YOU TICKLISH?
Selectively so. If I'm in a bad mood I'm definitely not, and I will tear you a new asshole if you touch me. Don't say I didn't warn you.
30. ARE YOU TYPICALLY A JEALOUS PERSON?
No. To a fault.
Will continue another day.

It's ok, my blog's not a religion. Besides, I don't update as often as I should. Hahaha. Error was intentional. Most of my friends think I'm your age (I play along, helps them sleep better at night). I was actually waiting for someone to pick up on that one. You're the first! *applauds*
