exasperating last day

27 Jan 2006

feeling kinda out of it right now. so many things to do, yet unsure which to begin with.

must be the effects of that grande mocha i had a while ago. drinking coffee has never been one of my finer points, and it doesn’t seem to get any better with age.

ah yes, i admit, today i tuang. was planning to go back to the pad and rest since i’m still recovering from thursday’s viral onslaught. but then tiff was free, and nearby, and i had some shopping to do so i ended up at mid valley instead.

probably half of my company’s female population know i was there. šŸ˜›

well, az1 seemed to have had something come up, so it was just me, tiff, steph, and their colleague named marlina. the fun crowd, woo hoo! before we met up for lunch at oasis, i was lounging about toys r us, MPH, and ace hardware while waiting for the catcha-nists. no new books to read, altho there seems to be a sudden surge in volume of books by this certain female author (can’t remember her name) and i was tempted to pick up one of her books. but seeing how i ended up sleeping at 3am last night to finish The Saga of Darren Shan, i don’t think i want to get caught up in ‘a moment’ for a while. šŸ˜›

how i ended up at toys r us is a mystery. thought maybe i’d have much time to spend before meeting up with tiff and gang. went in looking, reminding myself to pick up gundam seed from kr0 (who hasn’t finished watching it yet!) and keeping an eye out for those cute BitChar-G remote control cars (which seem to have been phased out). otherwise, nothing interesting.

ace hardware was my main destination. below are the items i wanted to pick up, or have picked up, and where i’ll pick them up from, or where i have picked them up from. šŸ˜‰ :-

– black & decker rtx-1 rotary tool – purchased today from ace hardware!
– rotary tool flex-shaft – purchased today from ace hardware!
– protective face visor – purchased today from ace hardware!
– medium/heavy duty gloves – can’t find my size šŸ™
– face mask – left overs from haze scare.
– ear muffs – miniplugs from F1 paddock.
– acrylic sheets and other material – waiting for info from ndb. šŸ˜‰

that’s 500+ splurged today. šŸ˜€ will take pics as soon as i find my arghed camera charger!!!!

simple lunch at oasis. talked about WoW, office antics, and drinking antics. catcha employees are… in a league of their own. šŸ˜‰ very different from what my sister experiences at Watson Wyatt, and at the other end of the spectrum compared to my working life. hmmm….

ah, and steph reminded me how i helped her get her WoW nickname, lol! i miss irc days really, but going back now will never be as fun as before. oh well.

and it looks like i’m keeping the monitor. backlight problem seems to have went away, and humming noise isn’t too annoying and easily fixed with a short shut off of the monitor. well, at least i have 5 years to see if it’ll go crappy on me. after that, hopefully the new [SED] (Surface-conduction Electron-emitter Display) monitors will be out, and this monitor might be dissected for education purposes. ;P
