Reborn - Yamamoto CHIBITA
I know I had an LJ post somewhere in my head, but it fled when I saw the icon kannazuki made for me, which is beyond gorgeous and makes me wish I was here to watch The Last Samurai. :: falls in love ::

Without London I would not be conscious of the fact that I like Justin Timberlake's songs.

Wednesday, 31st December

nescienx and aingeal_isilme came over! *beams* Set my eyes on Smith after half a year of separation! Watched the MTV Movie Awards Matrix Spoof, thanks to nescienx, and now the youngest sibling cannot stop replying, "What if I fail?" to every request we make of him.

Same youngest sibling finally finished Golden Fool! On Friday! Went out into the garden to read, and fell asleep before finishing the book XD When he woke up, he was, "Whoa...!" *looks around* "My tea is cold!"

Pirates of the Caribbean extras! Unfortunately I think Orlando very pretty, even in outtakes.

Had to run out halfway to meet up with a friend and lacewood to return much-overdue owed items. On the bus journey back the lady across the aisle from me caught my attention when she said, "Aragorn is a very charming king." Very XD moment. Later discovered she has ranchelle's laugh. She was speaking to her son, and I've never heard a more involved or interesting conversation between a parent and a child on a bus before. She said, "Books sometimes have a great influence on us," and I was - OMG... This is an adult after my own heart! Told her I'd liked the conversation very much. She smiled and said that she and her son were friends.

Went to watch Love Actually with wynter_myst, too. XDXDXD

nescienx-accompanied movie screenings - We see Head of State slash. GO US! Love Actually Hugh Grant's "We are a great country" speech so obviously a speech by a uke who doesn't want to be a uke anymore.

That being New Year's Eve, was out with family at night for dinner. Then father decided to give us a tour of Singapore by night. We ended up spending an extremely fun hour on Mount Faber. I will drag anyone who wants to go there. At night. Youngest sibling saw the tree on Faber Point and went, "LOOK! THE WHITE TREE!"

Me: "You mean Lord of the Rings?"

Him: "Duh..."

Went to pasar malam after that. ^_^ Have missed all these things about home.

Picked up a lizard hitch-hiker on the car. White-tree-seeing sibling attempted to use a crushed beer can to frighten the lizard off. Gave up after three attempts, when the lizard disappeared under the car.

New Year's Day - Thursday

Extended family lunch!

On attempting to study Law after dinner, managed to keep eyes on notes for about a little over an hour, and then all of a sudden an entire page of Lev Actually surged forth. I plead studying trespass on the person and the intentional infliction of harm. Thinking assault, battery and false imprisonment somehow puts me in Serry-writing mode. I will do better next time.

2nd January 2004, Friday

Ice Angel and JN came over, and were joined later by HY. Have discovered that playing Disney songs while playing cards causes a precipitious drop in my IQ. Discovered that Macdonald's has a Mandarin Orange pie out. IA, JN and I not impressed. Had much XD when attempts were made to figure out what exactly one did with youngest sibling's tube-and-glove-finger blowpipe with hilarious results.

Met up with anyasy, risax, homura, clinquant and deepresonance over a MRT turnstile. We were accosted by guy who demanded to know if we were going for a cell group. And couldn't take no for an answer. Discovered also that ex-JC has now arranged itself according to Houses. Am wondering if the Math lecturer who told us while we were integrating the volume of a cone that it was the Sorting Hat was somehow put in charge of the school planning system. homura and I vote Slytherin.

Very much amused to discover that sibling's orientation group is a race, and that all of them are turtles.

Could've been worse. Another group consisted entirely of tilapia.

Today, 3rd January 2004

Out with mother and youngest sibling in Orchard. Have discovered many devious things to do with beads. Attempt to take afternoon nap completely destroyed by youngest sibling, who demanded to paint my Ringwraith. Now once-silver Ringwraith now looks slightly more like the one homura gave me. Went into parents' room and was traumatised in the course of what seemed to be an ordinary conversation. The older you get, the more 0_0-inducing things are heard in the house.

3rd-Jan-2004 03:59 am (UTC)
THEY'VE GOT HOUSES?! WHY COULDN'T THEY HAVE DONE THAT EARLIER!? Far too many faculties though. did they merge them somehow?

Is said sibling in our JC?
3rd-Jan-2004 08:13 am (UTC)
Names of houses, I fear, are stiflingly boring. Also they are classified according to strange, strange things known as H1 and H2, or so says clinquant's brother.

Yes, said sibling is in our JC. ; ) He saw our dearly beloved Mr. Harris!

Central theme this year is Atlantis Sinking. Sibling delighted.

Nite-O on Wednesday night. XDXDXD
3rd-Jan-2004 05:32 pm (UTC)
H1 and H2? *smacks forehead* Great, so they're called House of One and House of Two etc?

Atlantis sinking? Cool! *wonders if self should go for Nite-O...*
9th-Jan-2004 02:28 am (UTC)
Already VJ's beginning to give the kids the "Work Hard" speech.

Heh ; ) One of the skits featured a *cough* sex scene that involved two guys holding up a sheet of tarpaulin, and several small miscellaneous objects thrown out at the audience from behind the tarpaulin.

"Strip scene!" exclaimed a guy spectator close to me.

And here I thought they were simply disposing of their rubbish through the time-honoured method of littering. I'm not in the gutter often enough, it appears.
4th-Jan-2004 12:25 am (UTC)
H1 and H2? o_o;; Am astounded by their creativity. Oh, what will those crazy folks think of next? XP

*grin* Intending to coerce encourage sibling to join WC?

Atlantis Sinking sounds nice! Well, more interesting than ours was ^^;
9th-Jan-2004 02:25 am (UTC)
XDDDD Sibling joined WC after suggestion on own part.

And it was just a suggestion! ^_^

Crazy JCs! "VJ Made Me Do It!"

3rd-Jan-2004 06:15 am (UTC)
Yay! Glad to hear from you again! <3 the icon! Will have to go see Last Samurai when it comes out!

You had to study on New Years Day *pat pat*

What's a cell group?

And you have a painted ringwraith! Is it a coincidence I've been painting an Aragorn model all night...
3rd-Jan-2004 08:15 am (UTC)
You <3 the icon too? *is thrilled* *hugs you and kannazuki*

*evil grin* Never thought to see you use <3, arrch! ^_^

*is patted and comforted* ^_^

A cell group is essentially a Bible Study group ; )

You've been painting an Aragorn model all night? Is nescienx aware of this? ; ) And will you post pictures?

Or... is it a Welcome Back present?
4th-Jan-2004 12:29 am (UTC)
Or you could interpret it as a terrorist cell group... =P But yes, probably meant Bible-study/ church cell group.
4th-Jan-2004 02:33 am (UTC)
LOL now that would be rather extreme security...
4th-Jan-2004 02:35 am (UTC)
Ehehe no unfortunately this Aragorn belongs to the rest of my Fellowship. But I will post pictures eventually XD

lol you're right, I normally write *hearts* rather than use <3 ;P
4th-Jan-2004 02:43 am (UTC)

Only pictures? If I don't get that, you must give me slash pics of those models instead.
3rd-Jan-2004 07:05 am (UTC)
Bleh Harry potter : P

Tilapia is fine. ; p

3rd-Jan-2004 08:17 am (UTC)
Alright, alright, Legolas is pretty.

Is this sudden protectiveness for tilapia a result of last night's seafood dinner?

*comfortpats* *hands you an Agent Smith plushie* Hope you'd a good night's rest! ^_^
3rd-Jan-2004 07:08 pm (UTC)
nah, more of they're a nasty kind of fish that like to eat other stuff. Very amusing.

Agent Smith plushie is cute. ; )
9th-Jan-2004 02:29 am (UTC)
*imagines Amused! anyasy watching cannibalising tilapia*

; ) It'd make a nice sketch ^_^

Agent Smith and plushie are cute!

*glomps both*
9th-Jan-2004 03:33 am (UTC)

Agent Smith plushie is cute, yes. ; )

Your youngest sibling sounds cute :D Falling asleep in the garden reading, it sounds dreamy, doesn't it?

Sounds like a conversation I would have with my little one. It started when I read her storybooks...and then I read her half of one, and she'd read the rest by herself to know the ending. I'd talk to her about the story too so it'll spur her on to read. Readers loves company. That I'm sure we all agree (if we're reading books we like). XD That lady sounds like me? *laughs* I don't even know how I sound like!

I shall ground myself at home unless I'm job hunting or going to class. Don't tempt me to go out. XD I'm running low on transport fees.
3rd-Jan-2004 08:30 am (UTC)
I shall ground myself at home

I've no skills in the Luring Others Out department. And - I'm... I'm not actually good at tempting others. Only at succumbing to temptation.

Shall I stalk you, then?

XD In my home it's a vicious cycle. One sibling gets the book, forces the other to read it, and the last one finally gives in ; )

Sibling's begun Fool's Fate now. Am very proud of him.

The lady had a laugh just like yours. *smiles* Kept me listening. ; )

I don't even know how I sound like!

We do ^_^ And trust us when we're all ^________________^ .

Falling asleep in the garden reading... ; ) You didn't actually intend to give me Serry! fic ideas, did you?

By the way, Ewan Mcgregor's next movie - Big Fish - I've already decided it demands Serry! fic. Poor nescienx and aingeal_isilme have already been subjected to the preliminary ravings ideas.

I welcome visitors for tea anytime. ^_^ If you don't mind cheap tea because that's all I can afford -_-;

It's nice to have all siblings reading the same thing. More things to talk about ^_^ Ohhh, and Koori no Mamono no Monogatari has a one-book gaiden (wai4 zhuan4) that comes after the series. I haven't read it yet but I bought it, at the risk of being totally, utterly bankrupt >_< (I don't buy manga often now...but this, I had to get XD) I'll see if it's nice and tell you about it.

Serry in the garden reading? I think he'd most probably be weeding (rhymes!). And falling asleep on the job and freaking the hobbits out because he refuses to wake. They might mistake it for heatstroke. XD
9th-Jan-2004 02:30 am (UTC) - *MARRIES*
So many words rhyme with Serry. Isn't it wonderful? ^_^

When I go I go for you! XDDDDDDDD


Serry in the Garden philosophizing on mushrooms.

I could get to like that ; )
