Muffin Top

January 30, 2007

One morning, I decided that my muffin top was getting out of hand and decided to make more healthful choices in eating. Went to the fridge and selected a pear to bring to work for breakfast.

By the time I got to the train station near my workplace, hunger pangs were a-calling. I decided to ditch the pear and buy breakfast at the little breakfast store.

Me: Auntie, rice rolls to go please.

Auntie: $1.50 or $2.00? (i.e. small portion or big portion?)

Me: Er… $2.00!

There goes the healthful eating plan.

When the rice rolls were ready, I told Auntie that I didn’t want sweet sauce, just soy sauce.

Auntie: Girl, are you on a diet?

Me: Er… I just prefer savoury food for breakfast.

That was the honest answer. However, an equally honest answer would have been…

Auntie: Girl, are you on a diet?

Me: That was the plan, but it had since been flushed.


So, I’ve Been Away For A While.

But guess what? The mold is still here. It’s like a stray cat that has found a nice cosy home and refuses to leave. No amount of Lysol worked. It says on the can that it kills mold and mildew. Apparently, that’s an untruth.

I should name the mold. Molly? Milly? No… Doesn’t sound quite right.

*Googling names*

Ah ha! We have a winner!

“Mr. Mold In My Drawer, by the power vested in me by the Royal Kingdom of WordPress, I hereby christen you Sir Mortimer.”

Sir Mortimer

“Arise! Take your post! Thrive and cover all in resplendent green-grey furriness!”

First, The Mold. Then…

We blew the fuse.  Too many computers in one small room.

C’est la vie.

Happy New Year to Me…

January 3, 2007

First day of work after a long year-end break. Came back to the office to find my desk, the wall, my drawers, all the stuff in my drawer, all the stuff under my desk and everything else in the vicinity, covered in a fine layer of pale green fluffy mould!

It appears that the building had succumbed to the onslaught of the relentless December rain. Rain had seeped into the walls and given life to the mysterious whatevers that sprout mould.
