An Update on Life

A quick update on how life is.

Bought myself a new phone not along ago, here’s a pic of the little girl:

A windy day #1

It’s a Nokia 3120. Didn’t want a fancy phone, don’t need a built in camera and my PDA takes care of most other things. What I did want was something cheap enough so that it wouldn’t push me too far away from my goal of saving up enough for a good digital cam. After rebates, she’ll have taken HK$600 (just under US$80) from my bank account. Not bad at all.

The weather’s been gorgeous lately, the summer heat and much more horrible humidity seem to have passed for this year. There’s something about good weather that makes everything seem more beautiful. Willie and I being blown away in the breeze:

A windy day #1 A windy day #2

Pic taken before a zit the size of China popped up on my cheek. I really need to lay of the cheese chips.

Oh yes, and I’m now officially on a diet. After quitting smoking my weight crept up to 105lbs, which may sound fine and dandy but I have at least three pairs of pants that I can’t quite squeeze into anymore. Trying to do so proves to be rather frustrating.

Dorothy, my Red-eared slider, has finally moved into her new tank in my room. Her favourite hobby is now rearranging rocks while I’m trying to sleep and diving off her dock (spllaasshh) while I’m trying to sleep in. Good fun.

Site-wise, I’ve decided to finally let go of the old themes/styles. Retiring them is strangely difficult, but I know I can do a better job now than I could when I made them.

I hope to blog again soon, but if I do end up slacking off (it’s been known to happen), then you can always keep yourself amused at Elea’s or Skye’s, two of my absolute favourite personal bloggers.

    Glad to hear that the nice weather returned to HK. I agree that the heat and humidity is awful in the summer!

    Dorothy is so funny , haha what a cute. Your new phone is pretty but not as pretty as you are looking beside your lover.

    What a pretty new phone! Heh, and you’ve assigned it a gender! Oh, we should definitely switch around a few pounds, since I’m losing weight even though I don’t really want to be, and you *want* to lose weight (even though you don’t need to). Wouldn’t it be so much easier if you just transferred over those few extra pounds you want to lose? LOL.Dorothy’s antics sound adorable, but I’m sure I wouldn’t think so if I had to be in your place. I’m a grouch if I don’t sleep enough.…And thanks for the lovely plug, though I’d much rather be reading your blog than mine!

    I can’t diet. The sole reason why I work myself to death at the gym is so I can eat junk food. Lol. Good luck with it!Your phone is female? I think mine is a hermaphrodite … hehe. I can’t wait for a new phone. Yours is cute!

    Whoa, stylo new phone! I love the colour. Mine is a Nokia 3310, purchased last year so it should be ancient by now.

    I hate getting zits too. My mom makes me drink this Chinese herbal soup she makes that supposedly makes your zits and “yeet-hay” go away. Right now I have a few small zits on the side of my nose and I feel so self-conscious at school because I think everyone’s staring at it. I am absolutely smitten with your new layout! It looks more organized now; and I might as well add in that the re-arrangement of your site makes things look a bit more proffesional ;-) Anyways, I’m sad to see your old skins retire, but then if you didn’t retire them you wouldn’t have created this one. It’s all good. :-D

    getting zits is pretty annoying. however, as i’ve been really sick for the week (i’m still sick), so if given a choice, i would rather get a zit then falling sick

    I’ve spent 2 thousand dollars at La Weight loss so i could lose 40 pounds but it didnt work. Now i heard that a 30 day vegetable soup diet is really good. My aunt did it and she lost half pound every day. Thats a really cute phone. Happy halloween
