Hat Yai Day 2 Part 3 – 3 July 09

Bono the Bear


On discerning days such as this, one finds themselves at a loss of what to do. Funnily enough, it is days like this that i find myself constantly whining about to have more of ; no plans, time to do whatever i want, more peace and quiet than usual and the most important of all, the lovely windy and cloudy weather that is of just the right temperature for lazy days of reading a book or just taking an afternoon nap. i have that today. and i am bored and unhappy =/ how more sad can that get?

in this sad state of mine, i wish to bake bread in my home in cheras or at least have a bloody oven and my baking tools here so i can do it in peace. i want to make mashed potatoes, potato salads and soft fluffy french toast but i dread having to clean up after the mess and to even get out of the house to get my stupid potatoes. i would love to have a nice big kitchen with lots of counter tops and a proper working oven and multiple hobs instead of just one or two working ones. in my future home, the most money will be spent in my precious kitchen. I MEAN IT. and it will be shiny and spotless and FULLY EQUIPPED.

i also want to read my book curled up on a one seater couch with arm rests on both sides but there is a lack of that in both homes of mine. there is  however that study cafe i love but then i would need to use money to buy a drink i dont really want to drink or be midway interrupted by a sudden group of noisy new customers and perhaps face a jam at the end. not so pleasant sounding anymore after i’ve listed that down. i have too many things to be displeased at today. i want too many things that i really can make do without today. today is a perfect day for everything lovely and nice but i am not the slightest bit content and feel whiny and bratty and spoiled.

i also want to watch tv with my lapdog next to me but they are not in this home and the ones here are too hard to control and shed too much hair to bring in. in that case i want a cat who will sit next to me and fall asleep purring as i stoke its furry little head and tickle its round little tummy. i would settle for my guinea pigs alas i get itchy if i hold them too long and i would also settle with my sugar glider but he is now going through a very destructive phase and will not sit still. there is also that fear that he will scamper of into the jaws of the dogs outside but closing the windows are not an option as the breeze is my only pleasure on this sad pathethic day of mine. ah the wails of a drama queen never cease to amuse. yes?

i am an unhappy child today. as we all already know.

that being said, i am however very pleased at the fact that i have a black bear that my mother thinks is ugly and ungodly. his name is Bono like the U2 singer because he reminds me of them for some unfathomable reason. this hard little hand made bear is the closest thing that reminds me of the bf and hence the most treasured gift from him at this point. it is also an unmistakable disaster to talk about Bono now because i am starting to miss the said bf. oh the clingy pms-y girlfriend i have grown up to become.

oh my gawd? i smell bread?!?!?!

i think i have developed a rather bizarre personality disorder.

ie : bored “si lai”
