The weekend

This is a good way to begin the weekend on Friday evening --- by memorializing leaving the office.

Self-portrait

Not that things have been bad at the office. They've been very good, really. No, this photo's really to memorialize the start of the first weekend in over a month that I didn't have to be working through said weekend.

So instead, on Saturday I took (hat-tip: mr brown, for teaching me the difference between 'bring' and 'take') my parents to see Singapore GaGa at the Arts House, like I said I would. My dad, who's 63, pronounced it a "classic" which needed to be released on DVD, stat. Afterwards, the walk to the car led me to the belated realization that, "The new Supreme Court building's so ugly, it actually makes the Treasury building look good."

Today, I spent the whole day at home eating junk food: Chinese nasi lemak from our neighbourhood coffeeshop for brunch, followed by half a bag of Ruffles potato chips (I have an established weakness for them) at 5 pm. Right now it looks like dinner supper might be some leftover KFC mashed potatoes. (Food connoisseurs reading this, please refrain from passing hellfire-and-brimstone judgement; I did preface this list with the term "junk food".)

Ironically, while last weekend Ink wanted very much to play but I was rushing a deadline, this weekend I had almost all the time in the world to play with him, but he was curiously inert. Maybe it's the aftereffects of the vaccination and de-worming he had at the vet yesterday, but it's strange to see him spend most of the day asleep, and still be quite happy for us to put him to bed at 10:30 pm. (We moved him because he was getting all dozy on the couch, which means he'll get all yowly when we try to move him after he's fallen asleep, as we learned the hard way last night.)

yup, totally agree. the new supreme court building just can't compare to the old one. it's not grand or inspiring in the way you expect the building to be...

My dog is exactly like Ink. He doesn't only yowl if you try to move him while he's sleeping though. (Plus he will not sleep in anything other than an air-conditioned room, but that's another story.)

gecko > Besides what I said was in my bag last year, there's also my iBook, a book to read on the train and any number of papers I'm carrying around for work at any given time.
