What Should Have Been Done Yesterday. I mean, written.

Went to JN’s house to cook! *wild glee* Got lost along the way, however. Took five buses when I should have taken two. *hides* That is all aefallen With Absolutely No Sense of Direction will say.

I arrived at 1.30pm in the pouring rain (Xiu and D had arrived well before me) and we cooked all the way through to 3.30pm. ^_^ I made pancakes with sliced strawberries, chocolate chips. Oh, and I also used almost an entire canister of whipped cream.

And then there was the maple syrup. ^_^

We made sushi, spaghetti, and chicken chops. First time I’ve seen spaghetti sauce made with nothing but tomato ketchup and chilli sauce.

I would also like to know how a chicken chop can expand to three times its original size once it is cooked, and how to repeat this effect. ^_^ It will come in great use when I am a starving student in the UK. ; )

Also, I like decorating lunchboxes with sushi. With strawberries. ^_^ I must do it again sometime. It was very therapeutic. Especially with the strawberries as blossoms and cucumber slivers as blades of grass.

I wanted to add marshmallows, but felt it was a bit much.

*giggles at everyone O_O-ing me*

Ran into an ex-classmate on the bus. And apparently NUS has a bidding system for the modules. You’re given points, and you must bid for the modules you want to take. You only need one point to bid for a course in Econs (Where supply, ironically, exceeds demand - *is stoned by all who didn’t want to be reminded of Econs*) but for Philosophy, a student bid some 498 points out of her total of 600. Yes, it’s extremely popular.

Then I went to the library. Compulsively arranged all the Jedi Apprentice books. ^______________^ Made off with the Jedi Quest ones. To my delight, found Alan Dean Foster’s "The Approaching Storm". Now do not have to buy it.

Alan Dean Foster novelized the Aliens movies. (I know that sounds grammatically peculiar, but it’s correct.) (For the record, I didn’t like the novelizations. The films were better. Much.)

Aliens was my first fandom. Yes, Aliens. Sigourney Weaver and acid-blooded creatures. I loved the second movie. And then I hunted down every single Aliens spinoff book and devoured them all. I didn’t know what fandom was at the time, but it was mine. My definition of fandom being something you obsess over, that you hunt down, that inspires you to write. ^_^ That was what led me to science fiction. And from then on, to fantasy.

Strawberry blossoms and cuccumber grass blades! :D Sounds lovely. Am not part of crowd O_O-ing you - or if i am, will be in a good sense ;D

We have to bid for couses in SMU too, but we use eDollars. Did mine today >.< All the interesting ones clash with my pre-assigned modules! grr. i'm not sure if NTU requires students to bid for classes as well.

*laughter* Should make a sushi lunch box someday ^_^

eDollars? This makes me think of McDollars ^_^ Comparing the price of different goods in different countries by the standard of How Much a McDonald's Hamburger costs in each city.

Oops, Econs. My bad.

NTU has another strange system, I believe - I think it's first-come, first served. But it sounds more sane than NUS.

*consoles* Ouch... Hopefully you'll get a fair shot at the interesting modules, soon?

Five buses? Chris........

yeah, I heard about the module thing... it's incredible. *blink* Inefficient, draconic, and also rather pointlessly capitalist (heheheh)

hmm, alan dean foster is pretty good.

*hides* Yes, five buses. *stays hidden*

Yes, it is hopelessly capitalist. *laughter* ; ) It must be part of the Government Initiative to Make Our Schools More Business-Oriented.

^_^ I haven't tried the Star Wars book yet. But his novelisations of the Aliens series didn't interest me. Though perhaps that was because I loved the films so much more.

Yeah, in that sense... heh. interesting.

I liked his Dinotopia book. ^__________^;; And I bought the game, too.

*weeps* Was out of commission for lunch - and now I'm going out! *tears* Will try to come on soon?

Dinotopia art is good! ; ) The worlds and landscapes that artist draws... Amazing!

You bought the game? ; ) My brother taped the series. ^_^
