Wonky Logic

With logic like this you can't not love Wonky.
She also tweets regularly and  blogs irregularly.

Seeing as how we tend to spent* more than 8 hours at work, the good part about dating someone in the same workplace is that every time you're looking at something cool all you have to do is point and say 'I want that' instead of dropping hints, making a wishlist and sending suggestive 'Isn't that rad?' emails and basically everything that's the opposite of asking for something the easiest way possible.

Try it.

P.S: Thanks to my darling sister for slyly reading my blog and pointing out the typo.

On Poverty, Being Inconsiderate & Taking the Bus

This morning, in a really crowded bus, some poor person* wearing shoes with heels made of wood (in all probability) hit my ankle so bad that I almost fainted when it happened and now it's turned into a full blown black - blue bruise.

This is precisely what happens when you are poor - You take the bus, you wear cheap shoes and you become inconsiderate because getting to work on time is all that matters, even if that means injuring people's limbs with your faux heels.


*because who else takes really crowded buses, right?

I've noticed that...

When I get upset, I...
1. Get warm
2. Reach for comfort music
3. Forget to eat
4. Sleep
5. Try to rationalize; ‘what would the happy me do?’

The Right Thing Isn't Always Popular

I'm offended that this tweet was Retweeted by one person only.

For someone who's been on multiple Center Courts all his life, that Nadal sure doesn't know how to be nondescript about his wedgies.less than a minute ago via Twitter for BlackBerry® Favorite Retweet Reply

waiting waiting on the line
i put my head on the chopping block
knots and crosses in my gut
an open book, a sitting duck
looking for flickers in your eyes
the smallest spark to melt the ice
if you flicked your fingers
i'd crumble to pieces

Where did all the water bottles go?

It really worries me that kids these days carry little water sippers for a whole day of school.
I remember lugging around a red and yellow, one litre water bottle of Milton (the most popular water bottle manufaturing company in the 90s) with a blue cup on top. I hated that it was so badly colour co-ordinated and that I had to carry it in addition to my backpack but I made sure I drank all that water through 9am - 4pm, no matter how many stinky loo breaks it took me, so that I got back home with an empty bottle.
Is this a family-parent issue?
Because I honestly don't think any parent is discouraging their child from drinking too much water.
Kids play, kids sweat, kids do PT, kids need to get out of class every now and then for a loo break, kids need to distract themselves from what's going on in class so that they can have a sip of water.
Are you listening to me mummies and daddies?
Don't fall for the cheap little sippers that the supermarkets are offering. Those are for the housewives to drink from while they shop. They might be attractive and have Barbie on them but they're not for your kids. I trust you know how to raise your children and certainly want the best for them so as the new academic year starts I sincerely hope that you buy your child a nice, big water bottle, one that's well colour co-ordinated. Please.
