At 2:30AM, I went to bed.
At 10:30AM, the kid I tutor rang the doorbell. I sleep through it. (Actually, I don’t recall this happening)
At 11:30AM, the kid’s MOM, phones the house. I sleep through it. (I don’t recall the phone ringing either)
At 11:30AM, my brother barges into my room, “DEBBIE, PHONE!!!!” I pick up the phone, confused:
The Mother: (in Cantonese) Hello, debbie. It’s Auntie (her name). Why wasn’t anyone at home? (Name of tutoring kid) rang the doorbell many times.
debbie: (in broken Cantonese) Whaaa? … I … was … home …
The Mother: (in Cantonese) … And were you sleeping?
debbie: (in broken Cantonese) Uhh … yes … *confused* *checks time* … OHMYGOODNESS, IT’S 11:30?! I’M SO SORRY!!! (in very broken Cantonese) DEUI-UHM-JYU! (read:”sorry! TT_TT”)
What happened was, when I set my alarm, I turned the little knob to where it says 9:00. BUT I forgot to flip the clock around and set the alarm to ON. And the reason I was up late in the first place was to prepare for tutoring this guy! Augh, annoyed.
We ended up rescheduling it for this morning. But I thought I lost all my credibility and potentially my job. But nope, it was all fine and dandy … the kid implied that he was coming back for more tutoring in August, wished to keep me as his tutor when school starts, and ALSO wanted me to tutor him in math before school starts (I’m already tutoring chemistry and physics). Soooo I guess I didn’t lose my job… SUCCESS!
Clue #13: This creepy woman came up to me today while I was “all-you-can-eat”-ing and said, “Hello Amy. You may not know me, but I know you. Very well. I was asked to keep an eye on you. See you around!” … And walked away.
Creepiness aside, this reminds me that I’m currently starving myself so I can have all-you-can-eat sushi with my cousins tomorrow! Oh stomach, by 1:00 tomorrow you’ll know that all the pain you’re going through now was worth it :).
- I learned that bubble tea shops charge you for just sitting in there, so you have to buy something.
- I learned what “mango iced shavings” were. It was good. But green apple bubble tea is better.
- I learned that the baseball diamond that I went to to play two consecutive softball games after having bubble tea was affected by the strike in Toronto.
- I learned that bubble tea makes you need to go pee pretty fast.
- I learned that the strike in Toronto not only affects garbage disposal, but also public facilities … such as washrooms.
- I learned that I would have to hold my pee in for the next 4 hours unless I go somewhere in the grass.
- I learned that holding pee in affects social performance. I did not “cheer”. I did not make small talk with people on my team. All my energy was channelled to taming the beast in my bladder.
- I learned that I should have released nature’s calling in the grass before it started raining.
- I learned that having pants wet from the rain doesn’t making the prospect of squatting in the grass to pee any more appealing.
- I learned that I should have released nature’s calling in the grass even after my pants got wet.
- I learned that driving 20 minutes home while trying to hold in 4 hours worth of pee while watching rain freely hit your car windows is the most torturous thing in the world.
- I learned that stopping at red lights is even more torturous … the pee like, splashes inside you …
- I learned that having a bathroom close to the entrance of your house has strategic value. And I’m SO thankful that my house has that luxury. I MADE IT IN THE NICK OF TIME (except my pants were wet from the rain … so I honestly don’t know if I actually made it or not … eheheh …)
- I learned that blogging about pee makes you want to pee!
I just biked to Home Depot to steal paint cards to make these :D. I just might be the biggest, most shameless pansy I’ve ever come across*.
* but how many people would a person who sits at home making notebooks come across anyway?
Yesterday while driving to softball practice, I decided to take a “detour” to Thornhill and pick up my free birthday ice cream from Marble Slab Creamery. Last time I went to the one in Richmond Hill and it didn’t accept my coupon, so I just bought the ice cream — coffee ice cream with cookie dough bits in a waffle cone — and it was amazing (too bad it also burned an amazing hole in my wallet). Usually, if I had to pay for it, I would have taken the safe route and chosen the same flavour. But I thought, “if I’m going to have ice cream for free, I might as well be adventurous, take a risk, and pick an exotic flavour!” So I picked vanilla cinnamon in a cinnamon waffle cone (with cookie dough for the topping … ‘cause as adventurous as I am, I’m not that adventurous).
The ice cream cone was now in my hands.
The ice cream that crowned it glistened in the sunlight.
"The time has come," I thought, "what you have been waiting for is finally within grasp."
Greedily, I sank my fangs into the neck of my prey. Sucked the viscous blood. And lapped the dripping overflow of the initial impact from the edge of the cone. Ahhh~~~ … this is …
Yes, disgusting. I couldn’t taste anything but bitterness. The chunks of cookie dough, sweet surprises when eaten with coffee flavoured ice cream, were just lumps of bitter when eaten with vanilla cinnamon. I totally wasted my free-ice-cream-of-the-year. Oh, the tragedy D’:
(On the contrary, I ate the best apple ever today. According to the person who shared it with me, it’s from Kensington Market … ANOTHER reason to be excited for going to U of T! WOO!) (Oh, and the picture shown was the coffee ice cream)
… These random tuffs of grass in the ground really irritated me. So yes, I took a picture of it. For some odd reason, the lawn mower managed to miss these perfectly round tuffs of grass consistently throughout the field.
Amy, being the attention whore she is, decides to go off somewhere for a month without telling us where she is. BUT, she’s sending these vague “clues” everyday. Jerk …

Your Bonding Quadrant: Companionate
Summary: You tend to live in your own head and do not get too invested in the details of others’ lives, but you do make an effort to hold onto friends when you have them. We suspect you show great loyalty to members of your World of Warcraft faction. Your relationships are somewhat impersonal and center more on shared interests (e.g., WoW) than shared emotions. You are likely to be shy in meatspace.
