Egg Philosophy

I thought i found a place where i thrived. A culture i understood and was accepted. All my concerns were washed away by the warmth and kindness i experienced interacting and working in that environment.

Oh, how wrong i was. Everything is good until you meet the bad ones.

Every basket has its rotten eggs. They don't pose a problem or cause any nuisance until you accidentally hit the shell and it starts to crack. Then the smell becomes so overpowering and stifles you. If you don't get rid of the rotten egg, it starts to suffocate and infect the other eggs,

But what if you were one of the eggs in the basket? You are an egg. You cannot remove the rotten egg of your own accord. Would you wait until the gook has seeped out of the basket? Endure and wait for the stench to pass? Or would you quit being an egg?

It was such a comfortable basket, but now it retches.

Acer Aspire R 13

See how incredibly cool this is?

This is my new lappie.

The screen flips 180 degrees to become a laptop.

It has touch-screen functions, and the PC fair peeps gave me a stylus to poke the screen with.

I love how convenient it is to adjust the screen when i change sitting position or desk height.

Everything is great EXCEPT: the keyboard is not as sensitive as i am used to.

Granted, it may be to prevent dumb-finger syndrome where fingers aren't as dexterous as they are supposed to be, or when something lands on it, or sticky keys. Still, i gets pretty irritating when i am keying in a serial code or password and it becomes "assord".

Bleach my hair blonde

I've always wanted to try bleaching my hair blonde.

Today i did.

Not too light like platinum, too yellow, nor too dull.

I didn't trust any salon enough to let them pour bleach on my head. Glad i made friends with S-san, who works for PACT + LIM @ Orchard Central.
