TV and me.

It's 10:30pm. I'm chewing on cold Chicken McNuggets, watching some guy being mauled by a shark on the Discovery channel and my cat is asleep beside me.

You have no idea what a slice of heaven this moment is for me.

The phone isn't ringing. No voices yapping away. No meetings. No demanding e-mails. And no boss shouting, "You should know better!" 500 times.

I'm not fishing for sympathy here. Everyone gets busy. All I REALLY want is for the world to leave me alone. At least until May is over.

In the meantime, when I DO have some 'me' time, I like to be one with the couch and exercise my channel surfing skills. Let me take you to my world:True Blood on HBO. I could not believe they actually made a series out of this! I picked up this book (actually it's a whole set) 2 or 3 years ago and was hooked. I loved the characters and the whole idea of a mind-reading waitress who falls in love with a vampire.

I'm not sure if Anna Paquin would've been my first choice to play Sookie Stackhouse but so far so good.
Here she is with the vampiric love interest,Bill Compton. I don't know the actor's name, sorry.I'm going to read the series all over again.

And...you know how sometimes you have an inexplicable fascination with Britney Spears, The Cheeky Girls (remember them?) and that annoying Frog Song? Here's my current inexplicable fascination:
Yes, I am hooked on 90210. I have to tune in every week to find out what happens in sunny 'ol Beverly Hills. See, Annie Wilson and her family moved to Beverly Hills and now her adopted African-American brother Dixon, is dating Silver - the sassy, sarcastic and smart chick who also has a bipolar disorder. She can't stand Naomi - the classic super-rich, stuck-up snob from a broken family - who has a roller-coaster friendship with the druggie-turned-pregnant but extremely-talented-thespian Adrianna.


This is next on my list:

Inhale. Exhale.


It's been a rough week.

My car is still in the workshop. And it's setting me back RM1,ooo.

Everytime I finish one task, another five lands on my table. And they were all due yesterday.

My phone doesn't stop ringing. And everyone needs something NOW.

My e-mails keep coming in. And everything is marked URGENT.

I have bosses who keep saying, "It's all about time management." But they're not the ones spending Saturdays and Sundays in the office.

There are only 24 hours in a day and I need at least 35.

I have no time to hit the gym. Gee, I wonder why.
It's 9:30pm on a Friday night. And I'm off to bed.
