I saw this sign a couple of days ago, posted outside a shop in a shopping mall. I think it'd be fun to share:

Wanted: Sales Assistant. Preferably female or male, with or without experience.

It reminds me of a joke I once read somewhere - it goes: "I drink only when I am alone, or with company"

Lame Excuse

Check this out:

To: Miss neil

Sorry, Miss neil because I pass up my laboratory report lately. Actually, I already finished my report on last Tuesday. Unfortunately, I sprained my ankle on that night. My wound was very serious and I couldn't walk for the whole week. So, I couldn't pass up my report at last week. I hope Miss neil can forgive me.

From: ... (name omitted to protect privacy)

I got that message on a piece of paper clipped with a lab report which came waaay after the deadline. It gives a whole new literal meaning to the phrase a lame excuse. Poor fella! Here's an egg... take it home and boil it for your ankle.


Dinner-Date with my Old Roommate

BeeRee was my housemate for a year, and roommate for 2 years back in university. According to her calculations (I don't dare to count the years...), that was 8 years back. *whoa!!!* We exchange email messages every now and then, but I have to say it was two years since we last met each other. Thus, I was thoroughly (pleasantly, but still pretty much) shocked when I got a call from BeeRee, with an invitation to dine at her place last weekend.
We took some photos at the dinner, and she said she was going to post them on her blog. Today, when I looked, I found the most delightful post ever written about me... well, sort of about me. Heheh, actually no, it is about us. I must say I can't think of a better way to enjoy university years than what we've had.

Thank you very much, BeeRee, and a jolly good bwera bweralar to you too!
