May 31, 2006

White diamonds achieved today so far: * I got my first white diamond in Bookworm by using two blue tiles / sapphires in the word “gay,” then used it in the word “koi.” * I got another white diamond by using three yellow / gold tiles in the word “sei,” then used it in the […]

More family drama

May 30, 2006

I just called my mom to make sure I had accurate facts for an online survey I plan to post later. Neither of my siblings had real opposite-sex alternatives for their names, but they did have other same-sex alternatives! My name could be used for both boys and girls, so my parents went with it […]

Nina plans / Occasion music meme

May 30, 2006

Nina messaged me on YM again to say that she’s decided to pick up her Jericho Beach running package on Thursday, so we exchanged phone numbers. She says we’ll have to meet for coffee after 4 PM, which is just fine with me! It’s more doable, given the way my sleeping schedule has been since […]

Says he has the flu, but is better than this morning. She mentioned that she’s busy with work and this weekend’s 10K walk at Jericho […]

Nothing is really private, is it? / Smileys

May 29, 2006

I thought I’d made a decision for good, but looking at a certain message, I’m not so sure anymore. Am I supposed to feel bad that someone figured out what the post was about? I have no idea… it’s not like I haven’t been venting here and elsewhere for the past week! I did think […]

A staggering number of tags / CSI / Survey

May 28, 2006

I spent some time catching up on internet stuff (including Phil’s blog), then the family had dinner and then watched an episode of CSI where the biological father (Sam Braun) of one of the investigators (Catherine) murdered a waitress with a pair of scissors since she was cheating on him. According to my sister, Sam […]
