We ended up chatting solid for like 5hrs about old times and everything in between... it was like nothing had changed at all. We remember the same events, the same friends, still have the same ideas and talk the same way [...INIT!...]. It was pretty sweet actually - he had wanted to say something all this time but didn't know how (Mainly coz my first response went along the reply of "Hey! You shagged my ex ya bastard! =þ" [Keke! Actually I had no ill-feeling towards the guy at all, it was a good tension breaker and also nice to spank that elephant out of the room as early as poss.]), but once that was over with, it was fantastic to be able to chat to my best mate from back in the day again. (^_^)
Actually its not all that weird. The guts of the oddness comes from the fact that this is just the latest in a bunch of lil things happening where my past lives are slowly catching up to my latest most current life... it had never happened like this before where I'm so... aware of it happening. Weird to explain.
Facebook is another catalyst where old faces started popping up again, almost to the point where we were recreating our old AsianAvenue posts... (I'm looking at you... Lumpy Lun Pei... (¬_¬)
In the past I used to prefer to keep my groups separate coz... actually I dunno why... I think coz I used to have different faces for different people... I was less secure about people finding out about the "other" sides of me. For lordy knows what reason.
But now, I'm actually enjoying mixing up the groups and intro-ing people from the different walks to each other - my Jappy people being the most "lucky" *sniggers* - having met at least one person from almost every part of the life of Brian.
Is this a sign of me finally becoming comfy with myself?
Am I really gaining some self-confidence??
Am I really... growing up???
Ed's always been pretty talented. =)

Today I bought a regular can of Coke from a vending machine without thinking about it.
Its actually the first time I bought a Coke since arriving in the country... usually I go for the weirdest llama-sweatjuice drink I can find.
Aieeee me subconscious is talking to meeee...

Also unexpected was the goodbye gift she gave me - a pretty CK hankerchief/towel thingy... I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do with it, but its possibly the most stylish present I have ever received from a 7yr old.

But now; whenever I goto a public loo - I'm finding myself missing that extra-thoroughly clean feeling you get from having a cool stream of water spraying direct and true, washing away the mushy and watery bits, breaking apart the hard and clingy bits.
Multiple passes of 2-ply just doesnt cut it no more... not even if its quilted.

So what does my student do?
He offers to give me his snowboard coz he hasn't ridden it in about 5yrs.
I told him I couldn't accept the offer - especially since half the cutlery, wine glasses and plates in my apartment are from him and his wife as well...
So instead, I'm now free to "borrow" the snowboard anytime I find myself going on a ski-trip. Hee!
