Hey Mickey!

I just can't get into work at the moment. And I don't mean no traffic jam or lost keys to my office. I mean I can't work myself up to work.

So it's Wednesday today. I have been doing the bare minimal since term started a week ago. I haven't even put books on the reserve list yet. So I announced this in class, apologetically, swearing I will have them sorted out by Friday. Then to my surprise, this over-enthusiastic student said "oh, but I checked the reserve list already, your books are there!". Yeah. I looked bad. I didn't even check the library catalogue to see where my books are. Ha ha.

I have no feelings of guilt at all. Actually I'm secretly quite pleased with myself that I am getting pretty good with doing as little as I can business. To congratulate myself, I now drink red wine and munch on salted peanuts.

And I took today off. Did absolutely bugger all workwise. Was gonna go to spinning class but the amplifier in the cycling studio blew a fuse or something and there was no music, so I ran 8K on the treadmill instead. I tried to vary the gradient and the speed but there is only so much you can do without getting bored out of your mind when you are running on the spot. Went home and had a nap. Baked cookies. Heh.

On a different note. As I'm typing this, I'm on my regular chatroom, and this forty-something hospital authority executive mother of two is getting me to guess riddles: unused condom (guess a Chinese character); condom in use (also a Chinese character); mickey mouse shaped condom (another Chinese character). I got the last two right. If you love life as much as I do, have a go and see how many you can get.

Hmmmm... #1 could be the character for "hau", mouth, right? Kind of that circle shape. #2 could be the character from the right hand side of the Hang Seng logo, is that a character? Looks like a vertical rectangle with a little fish tail and a little thing on top. #3, isn't there a character which like one big "hau" and two little ones like ears.

I'm just guessing.

None correct? I'm all out of ideas then... Well, there is a character which is like a "hau" with another "hau" inside it, that could be #1. As for the rest...I'm never going to get them...
