Random run-ins today

At Bugis Junction, I was intercepted by a slip of a girl claiming to be from a modelling agency and would I like to ... "I'm not interested," I said, and waved her off. I have no idea what she wanted. I mean, I was wearing a boring button-down office-y shirt I had resurrected from the back of the wardrobe because I needed to look respectable and in case the weather turned cold, paired with skinny jeans and wedges --- the faux successful "creative" look, as one might generously call it. Definitely not one of my better-dressed days.

Also at Bugis Junction, I'd arranged to meet someone off one of my email lists to buy a secondhand Margaret Atwood book off her. Which may not sound that remarkable, but given how all-over-the-place my schedule has been in the last twenty-four hours, I'm amazed no one else beat me to it. Guess there aren't that many prospective purveyors purchasers of Moral Disorders after all.

In other randomness, it looks like both the projects I was rushing to get finish before Xmas are pushing their deadlines back --- due to circumstances that have nothing to do with me, of course --- so maybe I'll get to enjoy a little pre-Xmas jollity next week. Earlier this week, I was in a house that had two real Xmas trees and real Xmas wreaths scattered throughout all the ground-floor rooms. It smelled incredible.

Finally, for my l33t-sp43k1ng fr13nds: who'd've thunk it that "w00t" would make Webster's word of the year?

Maybe they needed dowdy creative types in the background to make their own models more glamorous?:p

man, can't believe that scam is still running around. they sign you up as a "model" but make you buy expensive cosmetics or training courses or some shit like that. guess there's always a new generation of naive teenagers to keep it going, and you got mistaken for one of them :)

Perhaps a pedantic, confused point from me: wouldn't a purveyor be a supplier/seller instead of a buyer?

Hey I wasn't aware you were an Atwood fan. As she lives in a fair city near to me home, I can get out a few of her other books. Moral disorder is quite beautiful and yes, part of the joy of the real Christmas tree is their smell.
