Vacation plans:
So the diving is going ahead. In a somewhat rocky way, but we're only young once, so yeah.

Already planning for next year. Oh dear. (But I have enthusiastic friends.)

n + 1 post about kitty:
Sweetie chased a grasshopper yesterday. (My sister asked me how large it was and thought it was a praying mantis when I told her. I know what a grasshopper looks like when I see one.) It got out of the yard at one point and I brought it back in again because she had already wounded it. Sweetie played with it for a short while, then she ate its head. Eww.

Should rename her Ninja Kitty for her way-beyond Olympic level climbing skills.

RL:
I can only say that life is busy, full of stuff and I wish I had more time to do all the stuff I want to do. Money would help too, but as a friend said recently, you don't have to rich to have a good time. (That was said while eating cheap but delicious dim sum and kaya toast at a kopi tiam where the breakfast sets are so old school, the eggs are passed to you in a plastic container half-filled with boiling water. Taking them out too early will result in raw eggs and the withering scorn of the coffee stall's staff. Yes, life is better with $4.50 brunches after group exercise. Oh fuck I am getting old.)

This blog is more than 8 years old.

It's been 3 weeks since I adopted my cat.

Edit: Fixed the directory pathway for the blog after web-server had an "upgrade".

Sweetie is a dear. Sadly not everyone sees her that way.

Sweetie's not-that-big-adventure:
So Sweetie went out into the backyard today . . . and hopped over the wall to the neighbour's side. All this before I went to work. I ran around the back to find her, but she was hiding.

It made work a bit difficult to say the least. When I called back, Sweetie was in the neighbour's kitchen. At least she didn't dash out onto the road.

By the time I got home, Sweetie had returned. And Sweetie's all "What? I'm here, right?" before taking a nice long nap on her favourite chair. *under-the-chin nudges and looks for pettings*

Danged cat. *snuggles*

Eline-gets-a cat-part n + 1 (where n = an infinite number of posts about kitty):

Sweetie--cute and gormless (named for her sweet face)

- Sweetie greets me whenever I sit down by climbing on my chest and bumping her head under my chin while using my shirt as a scratching post. Bad slightly over-affectionate kitty!
- Sweetie is a kisser!
- Sweetie has charmed my grandmother and spends the evenings watching telly with her.
- Sweetie's only personality flaw is her tendency to bite ankles.
- The only problem is that my aunt is scared stiff of Sweetie. *cannot imagine why anyone is scared of a cat, much less one as affectionate as Sweetie*
