A picture a day

What have you done to remember the past 6 years? You may have kept a journal (in a nice binded book, on scraps of receipts, online with a visitor tracker or online with a password). You may have used a video camera. You may have taken photographs. How many?

He took one a day from January 11, 2000 to July 31, 2006. He has such sad eyes. Or he is staring too hard into the lens. Listening to the music, I am kinda afraid that the ending may be nasty. Not horror film nasty. But sad nasty. Do not worry. The video may have ended in 2006, he is alive and still doing the same thing everyday. I think the concept is not his own. Does anyone know which movie is it adapted from?

And yes, you’re right. I am entertained.

I cannot even keep track of yesterday. And I love The Simpsons.

Happy holidays everyone. I had a great evening – cooking and force-feeding a family who hates non-Chinese food.

Friday and out.

I’ve a window seat in the office. For years, I have never looked out of it. I mean really look out of it and stare into the vast row of trees in the far end of sight. Today I did just that. Maybe it is the rain. Maybe it is the shady cloud. Maybe it’s the oncoming trickle of jumbo jets. Or maybe it was the song that has been ringing in my mind for the past 24 hours. Outside seems like a place I want to be, permanently.

I have had too many pieces of biscotti. I enjoy watching it sink, float, absorb and finally sink again in the cup of hot Milo.

I think I have a physical condition. Ill or not, too early and too lazy to find out. But it is really bothering me.

Books and lack of

Do you enjoy celebrity blogs? Rather, blogs maintained by TV/movie celebrities, then and now. I have just read one by a local celebrity. Her entries are pretty decent. Probably because she is no longer in the limelight. Shrug, not likely to remember to read it again. I’m too lazy to follow someone’s life these days. Probably because I’m too lazy to get of bed and not spend my entire Saturday on the mattress.

Anyway back to topic. I need to read, desperately. I strongly believe that my lack of direction and focus is due to lack of stimulation. So I went to Kinokuniya and the national library today. The latter is closed, permanently. It’s quite a strange feeling to see white pieces of paper wallpapered onto the glass panels. The former is a Christmas nightmare. Why do people wrap the books with the store gift wrapper? They look like house bricks with old newspapers stuck onto them.

Note to anyone who wants to buy me a book for Christmas, don’t bother to wrap. I will love you more.

Incidentally – I read anything but romance. Surprise me!
