Catching up on Roland Garros after the long weekend

Going 'back to normal' is so hard after a holiday. My flight got in quite late last night (which I had anticipated but somehow conveniently forgot until the day of) and by the time I got home, got ready for bed and finally kipped, it was quite late.

Ugh and I forgot I had a meeting today. That is, I remembered, but not quite at the time it was supposed to happen. Nevertheless, it went off OK. I think it was quite obvious that I am SO out of it. Bleh.

I think I might just go home and take a nap. Figure something out for dinner later. I'm just too tired to go home and cook and whatnot. But sleep = more lethargy. Oh decisions decisions.

All right, I've got loads to do and I'm just whining now. I need chocolate.

Roland Garros draws are out and here we go!

Only two more days till main draw play starts at Roland Garros. Speaking of, here's the men's singles draw for this year's French Open. I'm not necessarily worried for Rafa as much as I am disappointed that so many of my favourites are in his half. WHY?!?

Nole in Federer's draw. Hmm I would love to see him hand Fed a loss at Roland Garros...will be someone OTHER than Rafa this time. To me, the winner has to be either Rafa or Nole. That would be my perfect final and either of the two winning would be OK with me.

But we shall see how it goes.

On the women's side, I would like to see Dinara Safina get the title this year. It would be nice if she really racked up a great win to boost her No. 1 status.

And with that, I shall also be doing the suicide pool and the draw challenge. It's going to be a very stressful coming two weeks.

Getting nearer to THAT day

I'm only about a little more than two months away from going back home and only about three months away from starting school again. Naturally, I'm anxious. I'm anxious about how tough law school is going to be (very tough) and about financial aid (I'll get through OK) and just all that in general. Going back to school after a two-year break. I'm anticipating getting back into the learning environment. I have missed it. It's going to kick my bottom, hard, and really show me what I have been missing.
Some random babble )

OH and before I go...The Office season finale made me cry. I loved it.

New TV show obsession

Honestly, I'm just leaping from one show to the next. Started watching Flight of the Conchords a couple days back and I am absolutely loving it. I think I have a big crush on Bret McKenzie now. Him and Jemaine Clement and Rhys Darby are hysterical. And I have to say, I like Aziz Ansari, but why do I feel like he's trying too hard in everything I've seen him in? Hmm oh well.

Anyway. Time to kip off to bed soon. Short and sweet entry today :)

Fiction: The Drive

A little bit of background: I have a habit of just coming up with ideas and never writing them down. But on occasion, I do remember to type them up or scribble them down, and the following is such a venture. It has not gone anywhere for a few months now, but I keep going back to it, hoping for inspiration. Here's a little taste of the randomness that comes out of my head:

First post over on here!

I want to put more of my fiction here, but for now, I will write a non-fic post about my minor triumph today. I finally tied a sari by myself and properly too!

I mean, I have done it before but in the past year and a half, I have been crap at tying it myself sans help. So when I was home two weeks back, I made my mother show me how to do it properly and it actually stuck in my head. *fistpump*

There's a temple performance coming up this weekend and I am SO not ready. I have neglected practising the last two months and uhh now I'm paying the price for it. Especially since it's a song I haven't technically been taught. Here's hoping I don't make a fool of myself this weekend!

OK, maybe I'll write something ficly in my next post. Right after I finish creating some icons!
