The less said about the previous night the better... :(
Anyhow, a busy day for me... went with Chai and CH for my final International Education Week Committee meeting in the city this afternoon. Ended up arriving 30 minutes late due to my having to stop off at Caulfield to... err... 'recover' some funds (haha! Love this campus! *grin*) which has now solved my cash problem permanently (or for some time at least). Told ya i live a charmed life! ;)
Hrmmm... then again it swings on either extreme of the pendulum... :(
Hung around the city with the guys after the meeting where we ended up at Rambutan with Ravi. Amazing! I've never seen a place that offers a 'sizable' chicken rice for $2.90 here in Aus! Must eat there more often... ;)
Ended up back home after that, courtesy of the chauffeur (aka CH) and was about to go for another jog when i got the call to have dinner and watch a movie with CH and company. Met up with Charmaine and her hubby, CH, Byron, Jackie and Kee Hung for the dinner at Glen Waverley (can't remember the name of the place) and 'assisted' CH in finishing his meal... ;)
Went to watch The School of Rock with CH, Sue-Ann (the mystery girl! hehehe! Ooops...) and Charmaine... Good movie! Jack Black totally rocked in this one... and there were laughs aplenty at the antics of the kids (lol! Man, that prissy ass-kissing girl reminds me of someone though *grin*) with a pretty damn cool final scene where they take part in a band competition at the end. All in all, i give this one 4 stars on the Patometer for no specific reason other than i enjoyed it - its inspiring me to join a rock band! Bass guitar here i come... ;p
We had coffee for something like 3 hours at Pancake parlour during which i think the coffee got to my head and i blathered on like an idiot in some pathetic effort to entertain the others... ;p
Well, that's what i say! Can't really remember too much about what we talked about (its 5am dammit!) but it was good...
*urgh* Me sleep now...
Gollum Rap Flash - Pretty freaky actually... ;)
China releases new-look Mao songs - "China's authorities want to inject new life into a song collection by former leader Mao Zedong, by releasing a brand new version sung by 20-year-olds... The state-run Beijing Times said the songs, which include a rap track, were being released in an effort to extend Mao's legacy to Chinese youth...". A Maoist state-sanctioned
Hell's Angels - "These are the Yezidi, wrongly called the Devil-worshippers, Iraq's most bizarre, and most persecuted minority. The overthrow of the Saddam Hussein regime has opened the Yezidi to the outside world in a way they have not known for years... The Yezidi never wear the colour blue. They are not allowed to eat lettuce. They do not believe in heaven or hell... They have two holy books, but they believe the only copy of one of them, the Black Book, was stolen years ago and taken to Britain, where, they say, it is kept in a museum." Apparently , they believe that satan was forgiven by God and returned to heaven... interesting article.
Canada prepares to enforce Islamic law - "Canadian judges soon will be enforcing Islamic law, or Sharia, in disputes between Muslims, possibly paving the way to one day administering criminal sentences, such as stoning women caught in adultery... Cases will be decided by a Muslim arbitrator, but the local secular Canadian court will be the enforcer." Awww, those kooky canucks...
Ayatollah Sadeq Khalkali - The notorious 'hanging judge' of Iran has finally died. He developed an interesting judicial concept called 'obvious guilt' - whereby the accused is presumed guilty if his or her 'crimes' were 'very clear' prior to the trial. Sounds like a friendly guy...
1-shot killer - "The frangible APLP ammo will bore through steel and other hard targets but will not pass through a human torso, an eight-inch-thick block of artistâ€™s clay or even several layers of drywall. Instead of passing through a body, it shatters, creating 'untreatable wounds.'" Ouchie. Illegal but still being tested in Iraq by non-governmental personnel...
