Speed Blogging

Here we go again, some MTV-style speed blogging.

We went to Taiping and then back again. Then we went to Seremban. In the last 14 days, the C4 has done 2,000 over kilometers. Back in Taiping, some idiot backs into my brand new car. Fortunately, the C4 was designed to take it thanks to its plastic fenders. No harm done. I yelled at the guy a little bit until I realised he was just a kid. After that I just told him to go home.

I haven't been to the gym in ages and it shows in all the most unflattering places. Jesse, on the other hand has dropped to a mere 10.8 kgs. The boy refuses to eat solids and there's nothing we can do since he's his own boss. The theme song from Malcolm in the Middle keeps playing in my head. "You're not the boss of me now..."

After such a long break, it's a bit of a pain getting back to work. On the other hand, it's starting to get a little boring not working. I have a love-hate relationship with work. I'd like to have all my weekends in a row and work furiously for the rest of the month until the next block of weekends.

Jesse is 18 months old but he doesn't seem to be anywhere near talking yet. He does, however, understand simple phrases like, "pat your tummy", "touch your nose", "sit on the sofa", "stomp your feet", "give Daddy a hug" and "bring Daddy a beer". Okay, I was kidding about that last one.

Mae and I saw "Keeping Mum" sometime last week. It was nice to be at the movies again after such a long time. Keeping Mum is a lovely dark comedy and we both enjoyed it thoroughly, though I would have liked to have watched Jet Li's "Fearless" too. I like watching people hurt each other physically. It's fun.

Blogging will be like this for awhile. I have plenty of things I'd like to write down here so I can come back some day 20 years from now and feel clever for writing stuff down. Everyone's blogging these days so it's no big deal. But someday when you're old and wrinkly, your grandkids will appreciate you for it. I wish my grandma blogged. She'd have plenty to say, most of which would be profanity. Grandma is cool. Heh.

Ok. I'm done. Tune in tomorrow for more 30-second drivel.
