I was walking home from work today when I saw a man listening to what looked like a stethoscope, except that the earpieces were on the ground instead of someone’s chest. There was water spilling from the ground around him. Continue reading “[Day 876] I’m a street doctor”
- I met a super nice guy with beautiful eyes and a great sense of humor but all I could think about the entire time was: “Why is he wearing those shoes?” It makes me feel pretentious.
- Scott told me the most princessy thing a girl has ever done to him was Continue reading “[Day 830] Princessy things to do”
Today, I realized that it felt pretty good telling other people that you’re helping your friend move. First, it lets people know that you have friends. Second, it makes you appear to be a great friend. Continue reading “[Day 825] ’90s babies”
I was feeling like crap today and started compulsively sending messages so alarming that Tucker decided to come over with his girlfriend, Daniela. When they arrived, I told them I didn’t want to talk, but they hung around anyway. I told them they should go out and do the fun things couples do, not stay in this room with someone so moody, but they told me that they were here for me. Tucker and Daniela said all the right things and helped me do the right things. Daniela told me that when Tucker talked about me, she felt like I was the most interesting person ever. Why let anyone change that? Continue reading “[Day 811] A friend in need”
I have recently deactivated my Facebook because I found it distracting. The problem with not being on Facebook is that people don’t believe you’re not on Facebook. Today, a new friend asked if he could add me on Facebook. I said I wasn’t on Facebook, and he gave me the disappointed look that says: “Sure, if you don’t want to be my friend on Facebook, just say so.” Sad.

Some random things that happened today:
1. I accepted Google’s offer.
2. I went for lunch with a bunch of Polish people and they taught me the Polish curse word “Kurwa”. They complained about durians and I retaliated by saying that cheese is weird. They told me that tofu had no taste and I told them potatoes have no taste. I like this group of people.
3. I chatted briefly with Geoff, and even though he was on vacation, he found time to answer in great details some questions I had about writing. I looked him up after our chat and found out that he has his own Wikipedia page. According to it, he “was sensationally accused of spying by news media aligned with the Cambodian People’s Party.” He mentioned the incident earlier this year when we met for coffee but he didn’t tell me it was “sensational.” You bet that I’ll try to insert that word in every conversation I have with him from now on.

1. For the first time in my life, I invested in a nice set of sheet and expensive pillows. I used to go to IKEA and buy the cheapest thing that didn’t repulse me, so this leap of faith made me feel very adulty.
2. I promised to watch a rugby game with Dylan 3 years ago, and today, I finally fulfilled it. It was my luck with it was Rugby World Cup Sevens — a version of Rugby played with only 7 players on each team, with each half lasting 7 minutes. Continue reading “[Day 804] Adult things to do”
