Leaving in a few hours for Guangzhou. Hopefully it won’t be too hot (my only memories of Guangzhou are related, somehow, to yucky humid heat). Hmm. I’ve decided to not bring Mr. Mac, so I’m hoping I don’t suffer from withdrawals too badly haha…
It’s the All-Star season and I was watching on YouTube (thank God they allow these clips to be on YouTube, unlike American Idol or The Voice blah blah blah) and Carrie Ann Inaba said to someone that her immense core strength would really help her with the dancing… I seriously need to find some of that damn core strength that I used to have. Not that I had a lot of it, but I have zero (or negative) now after many months of being pilatesless. Sigh.
33 minutes in, and I was crying like a mofo. Bwahahhaha. It’s actually a much better film than I’d thought/expected. Much. And the first hour made my cry much, much more than the second. Ahh rom-coms – such guilty pleasure.
I remember hearing her speak at the Hillsong Conference in 2004… I remember thinking she’s totally overrated. In any case, my mother gave me a Joyce Meyer book last Christmas, which I didn’t read until quite a few months later, when I realised that I couldn’t put it off anymore (the fact that I hadn’t read it kept lingering in the back of my mind as guilt). It was so much better than I expected, and I actually got a lot out of it. Yay. I should really thank my mum, shouldn’t I… Hm.
I love that autocorrect changes Man U to manure. Heh. Sad that we lost a close game at home though, because of a penalty that shouldn’t have been given in the first place… Rah.
Ro: How’s life outside of work?
Me: What life?
Ro: Hahaha. Really?
Ro: Hanging out with friends?
Me: Don’t really have many friends you know…
Ro: Hm. I kinda get it.
Me: I don’t put enough effort in it…
Ro: Well, this isn’t exactly a great city to make friends.
It’s strange that it would be someone like Ro, to not question my lack of friends, but instead understands it. Most other people I say that to, would say “But you have tonnes of friends!!!” – which is not exactly untrue, but it’s more like I know a shitload of people but there really aren’t that many I would hang out with.
Hmm. Need to make more of an effort…
Had to miss out on a dinner party tonight because of work, but was given two boxes of leftovers – mashed potatoes and mashed peas in one box, and curry chicken in the other. Such bliss! So blessed!!!
