So I finally paid the deposit for a little red fit. 🙂
There’s still some nervousness about me handling a machine, but hey, driving’s a good life skill to have right? *cue little positive voice in my head*
Like swimming, cycling, baking and peeling potatoes.
The biggest news affecting the company was released today. It shook the world, and I found out via a facebook status update. So did most of my colleagues – who read it on google news, yahoo news, facebook as well.
Sure, there’s some corridor chatter, and water-cooler talks, but it’s strangely quiet and calm – no word/email from corporate. A normal day at work. Everyone’s huddled at their work station, continuing with the daily grind. Life goes on. Stuff still needs to be done.
But I guess that’s how it’s supposed to be, isn’t it?
His biggest legacy was not in building the best products, but in creating a system and institutionalizing processes that can continue to run even without him at the control button.
If we had all descended into chaos today, I think I would have been more afraid and he would have failed as a leader.
Routine for the past few weeks
- Read Techcrunch: Mr. Cinical concludes I’m a newly-inducted geek, since I can now sprout the technical difference between OS Snow Leopard and Lion. Have you heard about reverse scrolling? 🙂
- Scan through SG Car Mart: Hmm, still in 2 minds about getting one. And even so, should I choose a car of my lemming, or a zippy one that gets me from Point A to B, since I only have a “functional income” (phrase credited to Audrey)? Did I mention that I now watch Top Gear too?
- Watch MasterChef Australia: I love this show! It’s showing every weeknight on Starworld at 1045pm. I’m even more inspired to sign up for a cooking/baking class. Time to use the voucher from my ex-colleagues at Shermay Lee’s cooking school.
- Read: I rediscovered my love for fiction, specifically of thrillers from Tess Gerritsen and John Grisham. I like chick-lit, but I can only take *that* much whining from the characters. Let’s see, I finished 4 thrillers in the past 2 weeks and I’m craving for more!
In other news… I have managed to wheedle a supplementary credit card from Mr. Cinical, after many many years of dating and marriage. Audrey reckons I should use it on the car…Good idea. 🙂
