summary: some saturday morning breakfast cereal, a book and pom-poms

click: how to make pom-pom flowers

that hyphen reminds me of this book i read recently. the other day i went to a bookstore. i read some books, as you do, inside the bookstore. one was called “Eats, Shoots & Leaves” written by Lynne Truss. it’s about grammar and punctuation – the title refers to a joke about bad punctuation.

A panda walks into a café. He orders a sandwich, eats it, then draws a gun and proceeds to fire it at the other patrons.

‘Why?’ asks the confused, surviving waiter amidst the carnage, as the panda makes towards the exit. The panda produces a badly punctuated wildlife manual and tosses it over his shoulder.

‘Well, I’m a panda’, he says, at the door. ‘Look it up.’

The waiter turns to the relevant entry in the manual and, sure enough, finds an explanation. ‘Panda. Large black-and-white bear-like mammal, native to China. Eats, shoots and leaves.’

fifteenth day

by bezzle

have just finished eating a vanilla ice cream cone with sprinkles.  tried looking for a picture on google, but they come nothing close to the simplicity.  i have concluded that:

– vanilla is one of the best flavours of icecream

– the red coloured sprinkles last the longest

– it is depressing when the colour melts away and you get the murky red grey colour

went to the airport to pick up mum and brother this morning.  we went in through this entrance right outside maccas and dad said he wanted ‘breakfast’ even though he had already had some.  but it just passed 10:30, so no hashbrowns and coffee!

sat down outside the gate and waited for mum and brother, watched other people.  among others there was a guy with a bunch of red roses (for his girlfriend?).  aww.

welcome back!  house seems a lot less empty now, thank goodness, and me less lonely.  or my posts might have gotten more nonsensical.  [such a pretty word though.  it looks, fun?  like whimsical.]

ack i keep on adding stuff to this post.  so, went to yum cha at ‘mr chao’s’ and waited for one hour and watched more people.  i saw the trolley with the mango pudding and white chickens’ feet (love them) but when we were eating it wasn’t there anymore so i couldn’t order it.  and then, when i was leaving the trolley came back out.  grr.

trying to do my commerce project i just rediscovered two days ago.

i came within two rounds of winning a game of risk!  i think it was mainly because i got the whole of south america by default at the beginning though.

i can’t remember what i was going to talk about now.  it’s niggling at me.  argh!!!  or maybe there was nothing in the first place, and i’m imagining there is.  argh!!!

i don’t think this was it, but whatever.  for those who watch the chinese kung fu dramas with flying moves and mystical poisons and killer swords and stuff ( i love them!) you might get this.  anyway, the antidote to the ‘deadly’ poisons always looks like a malteser.

wait, there was something!  i can remember it now!  we were driving home after going to my best friend’s house (tap tap!) and we were listening to mix 106.5 (do not listen people.  you will find out why.) and dad pulls over to refill the petrol tank.  when he finishes and turns the car back on, guess what song the radio is in the middle of?  that’s right…

…the song i did my hiphop routine to.  i am serious.  it’s an old song, too.  trust it to come on that radio station.  so, i was gnashing, chattering my teeth and trying to block it out.  it was terrible because the radio is turned up very loud.  pity because it is actually a good song.  but i can’t listen to it anymore.
