Mistake?

I'm sensing the last post was a mistake... now i'm not sure whether to unpublish it or stand by my i-never-delete-a-post policy...

Anyway, i'm really tired. Lots of Fitness First lately. And painting the wall, and making stones, long story.

But hey, once i started blogging i tend to enjoy typing away and away. I haven't started clearing up my junk...

And err...confession: i started reading the Da Vinci Code 5 months ago and i haven't finished it. Only a little more than 1/3 done... HAHA!

Am currently indulging in Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella, the author of Shopaholic. Its my kind of crap =) And it sort of relates to my life, the 29year old main character spent 7years working hard in a big firm, in hopes of becoming partner...

It scares me to think that i might be like her, slaving away to be partner after i graduate. Oh, i really don't what to do with the rest of my life...

Oh yeah, i wanted to write more about painting the wall and making stones. But i really can't talk about making stones cuz u wouldn't know what the hell i'm talking about.

So painting the wall. After my sis and i were done, father asked us to wash the paint brushes. Just put it on the floor and spray water on it until... white paint stops flowing from the brush.

I tell u, it is a mystery how much paint can be in one brush! I don't know how many gallons of water i wasted trying to wash the damn brushes.

All i could think of was how bad it is for the environment, all that paint flowing into the drain and eventually into... where to drains flow to? Lets just assume it flows to a stream. I mean, river.

Goodness, u know when that sort of paint dries up it becomes really strong, sort of like plastic? It can tahan the weather and stuff (just imagine paint addvertisements).

And just washing 3 stupid brushes, sooo much of these chemicals (u kow from the paint) goes into the drain and into the environment! What about new housing estates? How much paint and acidic cement goes into the environment?? =(

I dislike the colour of many walls in our new house and would love to have them repainted laR, but arrr, after washing those brushes, no need to repaint larrrr.

Plus, it's not easy to paint a wall, trust me or try it out yourself. Sis n i painted the balcony wall in the late afternoon, we were being roasted alive...


Almighty Anonymous, if u are lurking out there, waiting to pounce, don't even think about saying "Then Sue Lin should live in a cave if she loves the environment so much" because you are a coward, not a predator. Go drown in paint.

read Undomestic Goddess too! interesting! ;)

after reading Angels & Demons (or was it Devils? whatever) by Dan Brown, I just can't bring myself to read Da Vinci Code.. i duno, i just find it hard to read those Sci/Thriller fictions.. i rather to watch a movie haha..

semangat betul paint d wall of new house by yourself.. i was too lazy to do that for my new house.. ekekeke

sue lin said...

Charlotte, i didnt know u are doing law! Eh, fun ar?? Are your exams open book?

I think we can easily becomeworkaholics even though we know it. If we have work we cant finish, we would continue to do it till its done... however long that takes... n i'm sure it never ends, work will keep on coming in

Washed the brushes right after painting, its still wet...


Chris, hahaha, i also find it hard with those sci/thrillers! Even watching the movie i don't really enjoy! Didnt really like the Da Vinci Code movie

Haha, not i semangat paint d house la, father wants to do things himself... so we help out wherever we can lor, kesihan him do it on his own

r u serious?? >.< eeekkk!! remind me neva 2 paint nething.. mebbe they'll invent environmentally frenly paint??

sue lin said...

Ohhhh, but u still have to admit, in the end, open book beats closed book anytime. All that long long law cases! Hey, how come u chose law ar? Law degree or business law major under a business degree or something like that?

I have a feeling if we wanna climb the ladder we'll have to be workaholics...

Haha, so u would leave all the walls in your house cement colour? Not possible also right?? They really should invent environmentally friendly paint!

I think tats the only reason y they let us have it open book.. the stupid long cases.. LOLz.. I'm doin a double degree.. Law n commerce.. I dunno y oso.. Got it into my head so transferred out of juz commerce.. hehehe

Workaholic-ness here I come!! LOLz!!

True oso.. aiyoh.. susah.. shall use poster colour.. HAHAHA

sue lin said...

Wow, double degree! =) But u didn't want the commerce anymore, so now its just law?? I didn't really understand what u said...

Earlier this year, I repainted and refurnished my room. I painted most of it by myself, okay (including the ceiling)? So I know how you feel.

But unlike you, I found it kinda fun. It's very satisfying to sleep in a green/beige/brown atmosphere that I created myself. :Þ
