It's been ages!

It's been some time since I have updated the blog - in fact, an entire semester has passed by with me having neither the time nor the motivation to blog, haha. Guess I have become more Facebook-reliant these days. Also, blogging is over-rated at times, especially when there's so much to do offline! :) Anyways, lots have transpired since my last entry - actually too much to cover at one go so will leave it for now.

Let's put it this way - people who should know the on-goings do know, both from Facebook as well as smses and from our meetups. ;) 2010 has been an interesting and busy year for me, am counting my blessings and looking forward to more stuff ahead. Can't believe so much has happened in 4 months!! Embarking on new stuff, learning new things, meeting new people under the most interesting circumstances and all this amidst the crazy workload and thesis writing and data collection.

Tried to sync my Facebook, Twitter and Blogspot so that I can update all three platforms simultaneously. Still figuring them out but I do not have time to do so, help! :) But an interesting crazy busy (what's new?) weekend of the 14th for me: Organising J's Hen Night (due to the mistaken perception that I am the "happening" one in the TA room, haha); N&S's wedding at the lovely Botanic Gardens on Sat evening and my good pals V and S's double May birthdays on Sunday evening - over three consecutive days! It's like all of life's happy events happening over one weekend, how cool is that?! :)

Am really glad to be part of the happy stuff in my friends' lives, to partake in their happiness and even help organise for some of them. :) All this is post exam grading, was in grading purgatory for over a week and am still recovering from pulling the all nighters - final set of grading from NUS as I am leaving NUS, effective end June; for other endeavours (and nope, I am not heading off to be some lady of leisure, contrary to some of the stuff from the rumor mill... seriously where do all this come from? My atas doppelganger?)... will let everyone know in due course... feels kinda wierd to be announcing stuff to the almost 600 friends on Facebook... haha. ;)

As mentioned earlier, too much to be covered in one post, will try to see if I can settle down to write a proper post soon, but meanwhile, will let the music do the talking. Both vids are from my current google box fav - Glee! Why belabour the point when I can let the music do the talking? ;)

The following vids are from the latest episode of Glee, where Finn sings a not-so-old song - Jessie's Girl; Puck does a show tune which I love - Lady is a Tramp. Think I would totally go for a Finn than a Jesse (fellow Gleeks who follow the show will know what I mean); and I think I probably fit the criteria of a tramp according to the list in the latter song... know labels are cliched but I don't see them as necessarily a bad thing. ;) Enjoy and have a great weekend everyone - know most of you will drop a line on Facebook Notes. ;)

P.s: Do check out the actual performance of Lady is a Tramp on youtube - I can't embed the video here. Good fun stuff! Would go for Puck if it weren't for me not being into bad boys. haha.




Glee Cast - Jessie’s Girl
Jessie is a friend
Yeah, I know he’s been a good friend of mine
But lately something’s changed, it ain’t hard to define
Jessie’s got himself a girl and I want to make her mine
And she’s watching him with those eyes
And she’s lovin’ him with that body, I just know it
And he’s holding her in his arms late, late at night
You know, I wish that I had Jessie’s girl
I wish that I had Jessie’s girl
Where can I find a woman like that
I play along with the charade
There doesn’t seem to be a reason to change
You know I feel so dirty when they start talking cute
I wanna tell her that I love her but the point is probably moot
‘Cause she’s watching him with those eyes
And she’s lovin’ him with that body, I just know it
And he’s holding her in his arms late, late at night
You know, I wish that I had Jessie’s girl
I wish that I had Jessie’s girl
Where can I find a woman like that
Like Jessie’s girl
I wish that I had Jessie’s girl
Where can I find a woman
Where can I find a woman like that
And I’m lookin’ in the mirror all the time
Wonderin’ what she don’t see in me
I’ve been funny, I’ve been cool with the lines
Ain’t that the way love’s supposed to be
Tell me, where can I find a woman like that
(guitar solo)
You know, I wish that I had Jessie’s girl
I wish that I had Jessie’s girl
I want Jessie’s girl
Where can I find a woman like that
Like Jessie’s girl
I wish that I had Jessie’s girl
I want, I want Jessie’s girl
I wish that I had Jessie’s girl
I want, I want Jessie’s girl
Glee Cast - Lady is a Tramp
[Noah Puckerman (Puck)]
She gets too hungry, for dinner at eight
She adores the theater, and won't arrive late
She'd never bother, with people she'd hate
That's why the lady is a tramp

Doesn't like crap games, with barons and earls
Won't go to Harlem, in ermine and pearls
Won't dish the dirt, with the rest of those girls
That's why the lady is a tramp

She loves the free, fresh wind in her hair
Life without care she's broke, it's ok
She hates California, it's cold and it's damp
That's why the lady is a tramp whooaaa oooh

instrument break

[Mercedes Jones]
Ooooooooh
I get far too hungry for dinner at eight
I adore the theatre but never come late.
[Noah Puckerman]
You'd never bother with anyone that you hate
[Mercedes Jones and Noah Puckerman]
That's why the lady is a tramp.

[Mercedes Jones]
I like the free fresh wind in my hair
Life without care
Hate California, too cold and too damp

That's why the lady
That's why the lady
That's why the lady
That is why the lady is a tramp
