The Wandering Dreamer
Jeez.. you would think that Mathy would shut up if she has that much work to do but still she manages to butt in and ask questions every time. I know she can't hear us over all the noise where she is yet she still demands to know what's going on to the point where if she doesn't know she'll still try to the degree where she'll forget about her work. The fact is she isn't quite as competent as most people are, has no time management skills yet still she demands on trying giving suggestions which people have already tried and then double checking their work even though she barely doesn't know any of the crucial information. Caroline backed her up today saying "you shouldn't have a go at her" and I felt so pissed off at her. This is because I always help her out when she's down and depressed and she just turned on me like that. The worst thing is Mathy is the sort of person who demands on knowing what's going on even if you sigh. Which really makes life difficult at times.

I could slap that girl. Well at least she doesn't go through the bins looking for information but it's only a matter of time. Seriously it's really NONE OF HER BUSINESS!! THE STUPID BITCH!!

Whoever said persistence is a virtue NEVER MET MATHY!!

One of my Malay cousins is coming to visit next week {with her mother-in-law (my aunt but not blood related on my dad's side) and three sons}. She's going to be living in the city near me. My dad hasn't asked me if I want to visit (or my brother and mom) and truth be told I think that my cousin doesn't really care. They're only in town because of her husband's work.

I don't know.. my dad's side everything's a muddle and a pain in the arse and so frustrating. I always feel as though I'm trouble and just a pain if I visit them because they have to go out of their way to greet me and such. Or their jumping through hoops for me. I just want to meet and see them and that always seems so difficult. I don't know.

At least my mom's side love me. I think.

Lately things are okay. I mean I have a good time I think. I do my classes

I read My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult. The story is centred around Anna's desire to want to be legally able to make her own decisions regarding her own body and of course Kate. Kate who is dying and has been since the age of 2. Kate who has been given 14 years of life due to her sister Anna. From the back blurb you get the feeling that it's a really strong and emotional read.

It is.


Unfortunately, it's not only that. Throughout the book while we are know the situation is between Anna and Kate and the fact that Anna no longer wants to support Kate (she has no normal life due to being needed constantly in case Kate should go to hospital, she can't play sports because she has to miss practice too much because of her sister) and her desire to go to trial you feel that the story is all about Kate. Kate constantly holds centre stage (and does come across as a spoiled brat at times) the son is barely mentioned (his issues in the book are never fully resolved merely given an band-aid solution).

When Anna does finally get her medical emacipation (with her lawyer as a back up) she has it for one whole hour before she is hit by a car. Her lawyer makes the decision to give one of Anna's kidneys to Kate (which she fought for the right not to do when she was alive), Anna's funeral is never discussed. Her death is not pondered on by the other characters. There is no pretty eulogy as to Anna's life (What would you say? She was a loving girl who gave her entire life for Kate? Of course that would upset Kate so no). Whileall the characters think about Anna's medical emacpiation her death is never thought of.. merely glossed over by Kate.

Which totally sucks. It's like saying to Anna: You were born to save your sister (that's why we had you) and in the end you giving up your whole life and dying for her was just enough.

Work seems stressful. I feel as though there are times where the "blame game" is active and it always works against me. Drat.

Today I was dead tired. Getting home at 11pm last night and having to start work at 8am (meaning I leave home at 6.45) all this week and doing overtime as well meant that I deserve a nice relaxing weekend. I also deserve to travel home hassel free on the train, bus/taxi. I got the train part (especially since I left at 4pm) but not the taxi part.

You see I needed money to pay for the taxi but fortunately there was an ATM right next to the station. After I came out with some much needed cash I went to the taxi stand. There was one construction worker before me. Then there came two smokers, and Indian man, and someone else behind them. There came a woman with her man (since I doubt they were married) and a baby and some shopping. One taxi came along. The construction worker said "I'm going to let them go since they have a baby." Well, I wasn't too happy about it but I what could I do? I let them go and so did everyone else. An old lady came along, then two taxis. The construction worker said "I'm going to let her go" mainly because she was elderly and because she had a cane (there was plenty of space for her to sit if she wanted.. but no.. she had to stand at the front of the line).It was obvious that this oh-so-good samaritan was going to let every disabled, elderly or pram pushing person in front of us. I had enough. It was bloody peak hour for gods sake.. the taxis were slow coming (there wasn't any major weather issues like it being too hot or cold or raining). I walked past the line muttering "that's it, it's obvious you're going to do this all day" and got in the second taxi before the construction worker could let someone else jump the line.

And I have to admit that my taxi driver was fantastic about the situation. Just saying supporting stuff especially since after I quickly said my story he said "some people are just stupid" and saying stuff like that. I really should have given him a bigger tip (I gave a 3 dollar tip (tipping is not necessary and up to a person's discrestion). But it was only a $17 fare.

The construction worker said I was "rude" and stuck his finger up at me (a guesture which I returned) but the truth is he is inconsiderate. If he really wanted to do the right thing he should have gone to the back of the line after he let the woman with the pram, kid and boyfriend jump the line. I see no problem with what I did.. I only jumped in front of him (after he let two people jump in front) since I was second in line. None of the others waiting for said anything bad about it (that I heard). I think that some of them were a bit fed up with the situation since it was getting a bit ridiculous but were too polite to comment. Well.. unfortunately for him.. I'm not them. I am me. And I feel fantastic that I didn't let some do-gooder walk all over me just because he hasn't hasn't got enough karma points.

And you know the best thing about this is? I probably got to my destination 3 hours before that contruction worker did!

Played tennis with Gino today. It was a bit awkward with the meet times and such but after that we a bit of confusion we decided to met at the tennis courts. It was bloody annoying to receive two phone calls while I was in the toilet too (especially since I didn't have much credit on my phone), one call was from my employment agency which I returned ASAP.

We played for awhile. It was good. I got to try out my new racket. The only problem was that Gino kept on stopping here and there to check up on his friend who said he was going to come and Gino was afraid he had gotten lost. He eventually came and we played two against one (me) for awhile. I improved my serve a bit but I really need to get back into the swing of things. My new racket has a lot of power behind it. I think I scared Gino a bit with my serves and I wasn't even serving very well.

We met up with Gino's friend Raymond when we had about half an hour left to go. He wasn't that good of a player but he wasn't that bad either. We had Macca's for dinner. Gino told us about his demonized pasta which has 1.5ltrs of tomato paste and a kilo of mince meat in it and god knows what else because he makes it whenever he's in a crap mood and still has some left at home.

On the way back to the station Ray said "voulez-vous couche avec moi" to which I started laughing at (because it means "do you want to sleep with me" in French) and he didn't know that. Gino and I laughed ourselves silly because Gino knows French as well. Poor Ray.. we took away a slice of his innocence. I also recited a bunch of tales of what happened to me in France. Ray's now scared of going there. *giggles*

I need/want to take tennis lessons. I will do so in the after June. Right now I'm too busy with French, Japanese, Business Admin (which was supposed to be done ages ago) and of course work.. and I have about a half dozen movies I want to see.

PS need to start at moving out of home by the end of this year.

Must look into getting flight lessons.

Look into the UPC further.

Get teeth whitened.

See if I really want a Change of Name.

Movies I want to watch:
Hors de Prix
Paris Je t'aime
Scoop
The Illustionist
As it is in Heaven

Yay.. it's that time of the year again. French Film Festival time (to be honest it's just after the Japanese Film Festival which I didn't bother going to and before the Italian one which I know I wan't be going to). I saw 4 films. Le Lievre de Vatanen, J'etais chanter, Le Petit Lietunant, and La Tournese de Pages.

My favorurite was Le Lievre de Vatanen mainly because it was a heart warming comedy about a journalist who after seeing a tragedy he can't photograph he quits his job and decides to go around the world with a wild hare.

Oh.. how I loved it.. but man.. I really need to study my Japanese now..

It was raining all day but I only spent an hour max outside and with the reflections... urgh.. *whimpers*
