Lazy Bug

I have been hit by the lazy bug real bad. I used to blog the moment I flicked the computer on at my lab. However, nowadays, I usually work from home and the urge to blog seldom materialize. I have been busy, doing my workstuff and recently (finally) set up my work homepage. If you would even care to look at the rest of the staff in the Information Systems directory, you would realize my homepage sticks out like a sore thumb.

Anyway, yesterday was a day of random fortuitous events. I ordered a Regular Onion Rings and a Coke at Burger King as part of my dinner for the Starlight Cinema movie (which I won tickets to, a week ago. I must add that I hardly win anything.) As the countergirl brought me my food in paperbags, I patiently took my drink out of the paper bag and folded the bag neatly. Conserve paper, okay. She returned with two more paper bags, shoved them in my hands and thanked me.

I sauntered away, slightly puzzled at the presence of two paper bags. I had a drink in my hand, and wondered how my Regular packet of Onion Rings have been split into two bags.

When I finally opened one of the bags, I realized it contained Mozarella Chicken Cheese Sticks as well! Ho, ho.

Anyway, the tickets I won came in the form of an email which admits two. Sandy printed out two copies because we thought each of us needed to be arm with one copy. Two other friends came along with us, with the intention of purchasing tickets. For some strange reason, the ticketing boy took a glance at our email printouts and said we could each bring another person in for free. This is extremely warped, considering we were printing two copies of the same email. If I were to print like a hundred copies, I could bring my entire extended family and social circle there for a party!

Well, we survived the 3-hour King Kong movie and I must say I was guffawing quite a lot, no thanks to Sandy's constant translation of Mister Kong's grunts. It was rather surreal to watch the movie against the Central Business District skyline. I was half expecting King Kong to appear and start scaling the UOB building or something. Haa.

Wah... I finally see an update!

For a moment I thought my Firefox cache is having problems refreshing. Heh.

Your work homepage is cool leh, why you say stick out like sore thumb? Sounds negative when you put it that way...

Let's see...

("Fanciful & frivalous") VS. (Profs with webpages in static HTML or worse such as .txt files)

I'll pick the former anytime.

And I second Jacey's comment! =D
