|A retreat for the well-being of my mind from the insanity of the life that is mine.|

Currently listening to: Euro 2004 updates. In malay. :(
Well, here i am in the local cybercafe again. Yup. Computer's shot to hell now, what with the hard drive terminally crashing for the third time in its history (by my count). *SIGH*
Damn cybercafes. Meh, don't be too surprised if this blog isn't updated daily, although i will sincerely try to update at least once every two days ok? ;)
So noisy here... that and i can't lounge/sing/dance around naked *wistful sigh*
Ah, to be naked in a comfortable room *hums tunelessly*
Huh? *snaps out of reverie* Oh, er... lets get to it!
Well today was pretty relaxed all in all. Went to collect my spanking new passport in the morning but i ended up in the wrong line (curse my feeble grasp of malay!). Had to leave the building at that point for another more interesting meeting, but i came back later to pick it up proper. Thank the heavens that my pic is better than my old one... *shudder*
Met up with Julian later in the afternoon for some quick mamak and some CS: Condition Zero at the cybercafe before he was called of to 'do his duty' to Joa. Meh, get married already lah! ;p
On the bright side, it looks like Jules will be down for three entire weeks (he's finally finished his army service in its entirety) with next to nothing to do while Joa spends most of her days slaving away for some faceless accounting company - so it looks like i've got someone with almost as much spare time as i do to hang out with! Yay Jules! On an even better note it looks like he'll be my gym/sports partner for this period of time as well, just the thing to get me off my ass (literally AND figuratively *suggestive winkity wink* ;p)!
Oh, and if you're wondering about the title of this post... well, it has to do with some 'advice' which my shrink/counsellor gave to me during one of our weekly sessions. It all started out with the usual topic - that is my aimless, laconic behaviour et al. Come to think of it, we were actually discussing my job prospects and she actually offered me a job as her seminar promoter - something which the OSS has thought me well (that is, kissing prodigious amounts of ass). Sounds good but we'll see about my end of the deal (namely the price)!
And then we started discussing my love life. Again. I'll spare you most of the details but her advice was basically for me to actually get out there and approach members of the opposite sex, regardless as to whether i'm that interested in them or not (well, maybe slightly), in order for me to overcome my typically incomparable shyness in the realm of romance or even acquaintence. And to gain experience in such things, and in her words, "...maybe even getting laid!". Whoa. She's even encouraging me to change my pattern of behaviour or thinking in this realm...
*Pat imagines himself in lounge lizard getup - "How YOU doin'?"*
Hrmmmm... memories of a certain blog post relating to exactly this topic some time ago spring back to mind. Coincidence? She's even given me an assignment for this weekend - to go into a bar/cafe/whatever and approach as many women as i possibly can. *ulp* Meh, might as well give it a shot eh? I mean, even i came to this kind of realisation some time ago - along with the conflicting arguments involved (namely, that i don't think its really me or my whole concept of... well... love and, erm, it does seem a bit... sleazy. But who knows, right?).
And i vividly recall her parting words: "Remember Pat - BE the playa!". A member of the medical community encouraging me to become a womanizer? Either this is the problem with society/psychiatry today or the surreality that is my life has just taken another step forward... Hey, she actually acquisenced to my joke about writing a letter to my mother in order to persuade her to let me go out and... er... 'score'...
My life. :p
Shit, look at the time! Curse Sneexe and Selina for distracting me so on ICQ!
Argh, this is getting expensive - logging off now...
