Well nothing much happened yesterday. Or today.
Well... had coffee with Joa and Quentin last night which was pretty good... Aside, that is, from getting hopelessly lost getting to Quentin's place, having Joa fudge up the directions pretty badly (3 times!!!) and getting stuck in about four major traffic jams on the LDP caused by accidents in the heavy rain (and on top of that almost contributing to the general chaos by almost crashing into another car while i was at it!). Yup, normal night...
Hrmm... got some advice (if you consider forceful 'nudging' as advice) from Joa on 'How to ask a girl out' (hrmm... sounds wrong for some reason) but... errr... we'll see. Geez, its almost like she and Leonard are in cahoots in nagging me to phone that girl! :p
Speaking of which - I'm getting some much needed conversational advice from these Sinfest strips... Hilarious! ;p
The chit chat mainly centered around Bush's policies in Iraq, the state of military readiness in the world, and other odd bits and ends... And in case anyone's asking, no we didn't discuss the situation with the speed dating at all - despite being egged on by Joa. Dunno, felt a bit awkward discussing it (no idea why) but then again Kwong Heng wasn't there either so... Ah well, there's always next time... ;p
Pretty slow today as usual. Went to class, did my gym, had dinner with my parents and am now (trying) to get a grip on my assignment.
On the bright side i've got a part-time job starting from May! Basically its just training/internship with some others by my Godfather in order to prepare us for the upcoming Armenia op... Best thing about it? USD$400/month! Woot!!! (yeah, yeah, so its like pocket change for them but thats like RM1500+ here!)
Can't think of anything else of not to say so i'll leave it at that... Back to work!!!
The Exorcist in 30 seconds, re-enacted by bunnies - [FLASH] This one's for JL and his slightly unhealthy obsession for bunnies...
Vampire 'slaying' probe decried - "Before Toma Petre's relatives pulled his body from the grave, ripped out his heart, burned it to ashes, mixed it with water and drank it, he hadn't been in the news much. That's often the way here with vampires. Quiet lives, active deaths. Villagers here aren't up in arms about the undead - they're pretty common - but they are outraged that the police are involved in a simple vampire slaying. After all, vampire slaying is an accepted, though hidden, bit of national heritage, even if illegal."
U.S. Jew pleads guilty to handling missile money - "A New York Jewish diamond dealer pleaded guilty on Tuesday to charges that he unwittingly handled a $30,000 payment for smugglers of a shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missile who intended to shoot down U.S. airliners." Oh the irony...
Teen who posted own photo charged with child porn - "State police have charged a 15-year-old Latrobe girl with child pornography for taking photos of herself and posting them on the Internet. Police said the girl, whose identity they withheld, photographed herself in various states of undress and performing a variety of sexual acts. She then sent the photos to people she met in chat rooms." Hrmm... another legal conundrum...
Qatar trials robot substitute for controversial child camel jockeys - "Robots have been used as jockeys in Qatar for camel races, a favourite sport in the Gulf which has faced widespread criticism over the use of young children from the Indian sub-continent in such races. "A race organised on Sunday saw for the first time the use of robot-jockeys, to the surprise of the crowd," said the president of the organising committee of camel races in Qatar, Sheikh Hamad bin Jassem bin Faisal al-Thani."
Scandal bubbles to surface - "According to the best estimate of the non-partisan US Government Accounting Office, Oil for Food generated at least $10 billion for Saddam's family, and a further $1 billion to pay the 1000-plus UN bureaucrats who were supposed to be keeping it honest. Again, the focus is on Kofi Annan, who helped set up Oil for Food in 1997 and installed his close friend and fellow diplomat Benon Sevan as its director. Last week, with Rosett's series igniting a firestorm over the UN, Mr Sevan was not answering his phone. According to a UN spokesman, he is using up accumulated leave before retiring. For his part, a po-faced Mr Annan now concedes "it is highly possible there has been quite a lot of wrongdoing", and has authorised an internal investigation." Great. So much for the UN...
