One For the Road

Reborn - Yamamoto CHIBITA
I leave this house in an hour's time for London.

So here's a final LJ entry before I go. As if you needed any more evidence that I was insane. ^_^

My mother bought fighting fish. Yesterday. I came home and there they were on the table, with a paper placeholder proclaiming, "Decorative Fish. Do Not Eat." And on the back, "Peaceful Fighting Fish."

I have decided to name them Dae and Eleris. I toyed with naming them Aragorn and Legolas, but:

1. I have already named Legolas Fancier's guinea pigs Aragorn and Legolas. Their real names are Tuffy and Fluffy, which I will happily ignore. (Also, Legolas scratches.)
2. Aragorn and Legolas didn't fight.

*giggles* It's just temporary Pre-Departure Insanity.

Have a look at:

Spoke to my brother in Australia over the phone just now. He told me, "Don't think of us. It may be harsh, but don't think of us." I went all *cries* inside.

Other sibling, just a while ago, asked, out of the blue, "Who will I tell my dreams to?"

Last night I rediscovered how the back of your throat aches when you're trying not to cry. And now my head aches from the same thing. It still doesn't feel quite real.

Got to go. If I'm not around LJ for a while - you'll know why. You'll see me on LJ again.

All the best for the trip, hun... and see you when you get here :o) And don't cry too much - it will be amazing when you get here and you will *love* London.... all the best, Clara xxxxx

Surely Qui Gon can't be serious enough to sell Obi Wan away.
9th-Sep-2003 05:36 am (UTC)
He needs the credits so that he can buy a new hyperdrive for the broken ship :o) Figured it was the best way to make cash quick....
9th-Sep-2003 05:42 am (UTC)
I can't believe I'm saying this but: No! He can't sell him!
9th-Sep-2003 05:50 am (UTC)
Why not make him an offer?????????:o)
9th-Sep-2003 06:04 am (UTC)
I'd make an offer... ^________^;;;
9th-Sep-2003 06:09 am (UTC)
All reasonable offers considered :o)
9th-Sep-2003 07:14 am (UTC)
hmmm. *thinks! hard!* reasonable... how'bout Johnny Depp? *pushes person forward* ^^;;
9th-Sep-2003 08:12 am (UTC)
Qui-Gon: (scratches head) Johnny Depp, you say??? he's that Pirate chappy, yes??

Obi-Wan: Master?

Qui-Gon: Yes, Padawan?

Obi-Wan: Well, you know that he has gold teeth and looks like he hasn't had a a bath for ten years? And my nose is so much cuter...

Qui-Gon: But he looks damn hot in eyeliner, Padawan.

Obi-Wan: (coughs) Erm, Master - so do I....


Qui-Gon: Oh.... oh yes, Obi, yes. That settles it.... I'm keeping him!

9th-Sep-2003 02:28 pm (UTC)
Ah damn. ^^;; Qui-Gon is a hard bargainer...
10th-Sep-2003 03:18 am (UTC)
Well - that's exactly why he is a Jedi Master par excellence :o)
10th-Sep-2003 07:11 am (UTC)
Heheh. : ) Obi-wan is cuter though. But he should shave *nodnods*
9th-Sep-2003 05:59 am (UTC)
Awww poor padawan...I won't sell you, promise!
9th-Sep-2003 08:46 am (UTC)
*suspicious* You looked pretty sure you were going to sell me.
9th-Sep-2003 10:29 pm (UTC)
I said I was just going to rent you out... Dooku first in line. Still deciding if I'll let Padme have you for a bit...
9th-Sep-2003 11:10 pm (UTC)
So, what are we doing first, Obi Wan?
10th-Sep-2003 05:40 am (UTC)
I still have yet to finish that box of chocolates you gave me, Dooku.
9th-Sep-2003 05:57 am (UTC)
I wouldn't sell my padawan...maybe rent him out but not sell him completely. Am not ready to part with him yet.
9th-Sep-2003 06:08 am (UTC)
I haven't got a Padawan... perhaps they think that I'd sell him???

::Scratches head and hopes that Masters Flamethrower and Laura don't decide to sell her::
9th-Sep-2003 07:12 am (UTC)
Sell you? Why, I would never...how much????
9th-Sep-2003 08:14 am (UTC)
Aw - shucks!! ::smiles that gooey Padawan smile that melts a Master's heart::
9th-Sep-2003 01:26 pm (UTC)
And all Padawans must therefore learn to muster a puppy-eyed look to plead their masters not to sell them...
But I prefer QuiGonn with the puppy look. ^_~ And since I am utterly shameless, I shall plug Sparkly QuiGonn! ^_^
10th-Sep-2003 03:11 am (UTC)
Oh - I love a bit of shameless self-promotion :o) And I want to learn to draw all these cutesy little Obis....

::runs off to buy Learn to draw Managa/anime manuals::

I have the puppy dog look down to perfection now - my Masters will never sell me......

:: pulls the biggest doeiest eyes imaginably and brings Master steaming cup of tea::

9th-Sep-2003 05:28 am (UTC)
You'll be so far away! *crestfallen*

Do come online at weird hours that coincide with aingeal_isilme's and mine!

Have a good flight!
9th-Sep-2003 05:28 am (UTC)
Enjoy London!
9th-Sep-2003 06:02 am (UTC)
Hope you have a safe trip!
9th-Sep-2003 06:05 am (UTC)
*grins* Have a nice trip! Get internet soon, then we can talk! *hugs*
9th-Sep-2003 07:02 am (UTC)
Have a great trip! *glomps*
9th-Sep-2003 07:13 am (UTC)
You'll be fine, and so much closer to clara_swift!

Hope you'll be able to check in soon.
9th-Sep-2003 08:45 am (UTC)
Is that a good thing?
9th-Sep-2003 08:54 am (UTC)
::SNERK:: Well, hopefully!
10th-Sep-2003 03:14 am (UTC)
Is that a good thing?

I am hurt by the unspoken implication of this question.......

10th-Sep-2003 05:42 am (UTC)
Aw. I apologise.

I will put a Qui/Obi artwork in queue.
10th-Sep-2003 06:12 am (UTC)
:: perks up at the mere mention of Qui/Obi artwork:: :o)

9th-Sep-2003 08:09 am (UTC) - How sad, truly you will survie out there anywho
9th-Sep-2003 10:04 am (UTC)
Now now, don't cry. *hugs n comforts you*

I know what you mean by doesn't feel quite real. It was just so... strange, seeing you off at the airport. Like it wasn't really happening. I think it's the airport lighting. Evil(or is it nice?) lighting people who make the departure hall seem so surreal.

And oh, don't worry about Dae... we'll write lots of fluffy and cloyingly sweet songfics n misc entries to keep your heartbroken husband from trying to swim across the ocean to get to you or something *smirk*
9th-Sep-2003 01:17 pm (UTC)
Finding Dae-mo!!

Ahem. Couldn't resist.

When you get there, get net access, and then we can start wrecking havoc once more yo. Study hard, play hard, and get enough sleep! Oh, and more blankets and stuff. England can be pretty damn cold. Great place for blanket fics, eh? ^_~
10th-Sep-2003 12:36 am (UTC)
*huggles aefallen* Hope you had a good flight, and are enjoying yourself over there :)

Yeah, i agree with your Professor, it didn't feel real, sending you off yesterday. And as c_dreamcatcher said last night, it was the most cheerful farewell that we've been to ^-^ But that's good, i suppose. Wouldn't want you to have started crying... besides, Dae wasn't there to wipe your tears away ;P The reality that you've left only started to sink in today *sniffles*

*hugs* Well, take care, and here's hoping you get connected to the Net soon!
10th-Sep-2003 03:57 am (UTC) - *sighs and hugs you*

well for a moment i thought you actually wouldn't miss home or singapore or your family or your friends because yesterday seemed so much like a normal outing if you get what i mean?

i put up some stuff on my usual blog for you. hopefully you can post on my usual blog in london. i toyed with the idea of cutting and pastign everything here but..haha...i'm lazy!

*hugs you*

take care, sweetheart. do get your internet soon so we can talk soon!

and yes it really hurts when you try to "choke" your tears down. i feel that way too. i felt my heart sink yesterday even though i was smiling away. but i wasn't faking my smiles. all my emotions were natural even though it was quite contradictory to smile and feel sad at the same time, while experiencing both emotions.

*sighs again*

i'll really miss you dearie.

oh and wengkeong asks if he can link ur blog to his? the assassins eyes one i suppose. won't tell him about ur LJ. funny thing is that he and SY were from the same chinese tuition class too.

*starts singing "it's a small world after all"*

*hugs you again*

don't forget all of us!
10th-Sep-2003 05:22 am (UTC)
:: hugs ::
I hope you will enjoy London :)
11th-Sep-2003 12:46 am (UTC)
*glomps* I know this is belated, but have a safe trip! I'll try to get my senior to help you out. Not too sure if she's back already, though.
Am missing you. *sniff*
*sends many obi-wan shaped chocolates*
11th-Sep-2003 06:36 pm (UTC)
*sends many obi-wan shaped lollipops* Are you thinking what I'm thinking, B1?

*flees cackling madly*
12th-Sep-2003 12:30 am (UTC)
Lollipops? But aren't lollipops for sucking and licking...? (as chocs are for eating AND licking)


XD As evil as usual, Professor Faol?
11th-Sep-2003 02:25 am (UTC)
*hugs* Good luck!
18th-Sep-2003 03:06 am (UTC) - Dae The Fighting Fish??!!!
Have I ever mentioned that I can't swim...(so I'm not going to swim across the ocean for you any time soon) and that I'm hydrophobic...

Fish indeed...

AND NOOOOOOOOOOO now you encourage the rest of ratal to write D/E fics...and it's the wrong E too....*wails* You know how much effort it took for them to get off that entire wedding thing??

On a calmer note, have you receive my mail for that fic? I sent it on Wednesday, hoping that it'll be the first thing you see when you check your mailbox...how's it?
21st-Sep-2003 01:53 am (UTC) - Re: Dae The Fighting Fish??!!!
got off or called off? We certainly didn't call it off, though whether you two got off because of the wedding is a whole other matter altogether *smirk*
