Christmas

- kein, posted at 4:08 AM.



Wish I could put on a toothy grin like that :)

Christmas. The usual images one associates with that would be stuff like Christmas trees, Santa Claus and the red-nosed Rudolph, presents, enjoyment, merriment, and the traditional spirit of giving and sharing. Or maybe even the image of free-falling snow and the jolly snowmen.

I've slowly lost that spirit along the years. Constant grinding of reality has eroded my beliefs that were rooted in childhood, till I merely think of it as another public holiday in my calendar of events, a nice day to rest and meet up with my friends.

Have you ever listened to Jay's '你听得到', and wondered why he was seriously mumbling at one point of the song until it didn't even resemble the lyrics? Turned out that part was changed so that you could only hear it if you played that part backwards ;p Check out this page to listen :)

And yeah, here's a gallery of images from his recent Singapore concert.

*yawn* I'm really looking forward to my next few off days; this week's a pretty shitty one as far as work's concerned. I had fun last weekend so it sortof made up the difference I guess, and paying for the fun with slight sunburns and major fatigue.

There's one important reason why I'm still so damn tired though, and I wish I could send it to every single person who knows me. It'll read something like this.
"DON'T CALL OR MESSAGE ME IN THE FCUKING MORNING, I'M SLEEPING!"

I slept from 0830hrs to 1700hrs yesterday, but got interrupted with one phonecall and around five messages, all separated into roughly one per hour -.-
Thanks but no thanks.

If I was working the previous night, I'll be sleeping like a corpse.
If I wasn't working, I'll be sleeping nonetheless 'cus I stayed up late.
Conclusion: disturb me only after 1500hrs preferably.

Debatable quote of the day from YL, extracted from our conversation in ICQ just now.
"point is everyone needs companion, apart from the sex. someone to fall back upon, someone to trust. can u trust her? or can she trust you? suitability is about frequency; don't force it."

One interesting(?) thing I've never mentioned before though. I've just begun to realise human relations are just about the most interesting mini-game that can be played in our great game of Life. It's like walking along a road and discovering that there are actually so many things to the sides of that road, and even backtracking along the original path would yield some clue or lesson. I'm not sure what the stakes and the prizes are yet though; maybe that differs from person to person? ;p

Last interesting thing for the night: here's a pretty good love story with a sad overtone. But everyone loves sob stories don't they?

It begins like this.. (just to bait more readers.)

---

It's a cold February night. People are bustling through the streets, either pulling up their coat collars or wrapping scarves around their necks, trying to stay warm.

It's so cold today. I'm standing at my window, looking at the people moving like little dots. Standing in a heated room, I'm beginning to pity those people. Why don't they go home? Do they plan on wandering until morning?

"Almost time to go home! My boyfriend must be going crazy." One of the nurses breathe a sign of relief. "Still needs to work overtime on Valentine's Day. It's so unfair!"

"You are fortunate." Another nurse says. "Some people don't have anyone waiting for them."

"You mean Dr. Shu?"

Like Sherlock Holmes, my ears perk up when I hear my name.

"Do you remember how she lost control on this day last year?"

"Of course I do." A nurse shudders. "I've never seen Dr. Shu like that. Crying and yelling, like she was crazy."

They are talking about how I was last year. They are correct. I was out of control, like they said.

"You can't blame Dr. Shu. If my boyfriend died in front of my eyes, I would probably go crazy as well."

Reminds me of my completed 'iam tandem' :( Pathetically low reader base though, hiaks. Not to mention lengthy, boring and stunted use of language.
