If you’re fond of collecting McDonalds toys and/or Coke cans, you’ll probably have noticed that McD has recently been offering the Coke can glasses, and they’re pretty cool. My girlfriend, being the lovely happy-go-lucky girl that she is, wanted to collect the lot, which more or less mean that I had a part time job to do.
Some people tell you not to poke a sleeping bear, and I was presented with one of those scenarios today. I must admit it was highly tempting to satisfy my curiosity, but my instinct for self-preservation prevailed, I resisted, and I’ve lived to tell the tale!
…on an unrelated note, my girlfriend is still sleeping.
Man, this is probably one of those eerie moments that you realize that something has gone wrong. It’s not like we have to write the alphabet out in A-Z everyday, but I was doing it a few times today to check on my handwriting as I’m thinking of picking up a fountain pen (probably a cheap yellow Lamy), and I realized that I was having trouble writing out the alphabet. I struggled to think what came after “q” as my mind was screaming “QWERTY…Q..W..E..R..T..Y”. I think that’s forever etched in my mind. The funny thing is that I only realized that I missed out the “g” in the middle row much later.
Not sure if it’s a sign of me getting stupid or the fact that the things they taught me in kindergarten are kinda useless, lol. I need to get these dreams of a fountain pen out of my mind, though I suspect I’ll end up with a fountain pen sometime this week. Maybe I’ll re-learn the alphabet after that.
I found out today that some people have pigs are pets. Maybe it’s coming from a Muslim country (Malaysia), but I guess I never entertained the idea of having a pet pig. I also found out that some folks came up with piggy banks that look like actual pigs, though I must say I’m still in favor of the Hungry Pig piggy bank I saw at the Singapore Art Museum. Maybe I should get a piggy bank again, as I’m currently storing all my spare change in a plastic pot (yes, with three tiny holes at the bottom too).
I also found out that some people are plain strange.
