Little kindnesses

I'd composed a whiny blog post about PMS, but then I decided I should be more mature and remember all the little kindnesses of the week instead.

Like the delightful homemade egg tart that supplemented my breakfast this morning, lovingly baked by a colleague's mother.

And the Chasing Amy poster that another colleague and fellow Kevin Smith fan gave me, just for the hell of it. I would put it up at my cubicle at work, but it has words like "fuck" and "ménage à trois" and this is a school after all, so I'll put it up at home instead.

And the Anthon Berg version of heaven, also a gift.

And everyone who supported my instigation to go to Wine Bar last night. And the bartender who made friendly small talk and really strong drinks. And the waiter who didn't make a fuss when I asked him to shift the bill to my credit card so that we could get cheaper drinks.

And Ondine, who tolerated my whining this morning about PMS via SMS and, as any good friend would, heartily encouraged me to ditch work and go spoil myself ("Cake? Shopping? ... Think a spa thing might help?"). (If only I could.)

Amen.

Hi Ms Bala, Zengkun here. Eh, not commenting on your post; Just wanted to say that I did get the SPH scholarship, and will be going to NYU in August, so thank you for the recommendations. Just to confirm, because it's been bugging me ever since I left the office - was the recommendation the same one you wrote when I graduated? =) Because otherwise I don't get why you were asking me for it that day.
Uh. I hope I didn't break some sort of teachers' code or something.

Hi Zengkun! *waves* congrats!

I was just going to say, that you're supposed to use the pseudonym "Tym" when referring to the author of this blog (as I found out to my cost when I, as blur as all of Tym's ex-students, went and used her real name. Discovering this blog has the tendency to make us go a bit siao-siao at the start, I'm afraid =P).

I know the real name has appeared a few times already (and students are always the culprit) but the blog owner might still appreciate it if we made an effort to stick with the pseudonym, yah? ;)

Cheerios,
Lisheng (who needs no Pseudonyms - but you can use Taliesin if you like 'em =P)
