Turkey Day Minus One

Zoinks!! i have spent the last TWO HOURS doing nothing but clicking on the links on the sidebar and reacquiainting myself with all the blogs I usually visit.

Two hours to catch up - it's a sign that:
  • I've got quite a few links to explore,
  • those bloggers are pretty productive, AND
  • dial-up sucks. :p
Tomorrow's Turkey Day, so we'll be heading up to some of Kosh's relatives for the annual stuff-your-face-with-a-large-dead-bird event. And will spend the weekend at the folks'. Will probably be off-line till Sunday.

Weather's taking a turn for the worse: snow is in the forecast, bleah!

Oh: while I was getting caught up on the blogs, I also tried out some of the quizzes featured (lost track of which I got from whom, so no tips of hats to anyone); Here are my results:


I tried both a shorter and the 45-question quizzes, with the same result. Pretty cool, eh? Especially since I also have the Einstein/DarkTower pix on the top of my page :-)

You scored as Batman, the Dark Knight. As the Dark Knight of Gotham, Batman is a vigilante who deals out his own brand of justice to the criminals and corrupt of the city. He follows his own code and is often misunderstood. He has few friends or allies, but finds comfort in his cause.

  2. Have a good Thanksgiving weekend (well, i ASSUME it's Thanksgiving, have no idea on those celebrations on your continent ;-) ). Enjoy the dead bird too, only about 6 weeks to go before I can start eating meat again, unless I decide to extend the vegetarian thing.
    It's gotten cold here too. No snow where I am, although it has snowed. Snow flakes were actually falling while I was cycling to work this morning. *shiver* *shiver* *cold* *cold*

  3. Looks like we're both loners and Batmans (or is it Batpersons to be politically correct?).

    Must be all those petrochemical radiation from Level 76 of PTT.

Dear legitimate commenters: all comments are welcome! My sincere apologies for making you go through the word verification hurdle, tho.

Dear spammers: please don't bother... I'm just gonna delete any spam that squeaks through word verification anyway, so why not save us both the trouble, eh?

Thanks!

Noritta Samsudin: Case closed? WTF?

I was amazed to read that Datuk Mustapha Abdullah, the city police chief considers the Noritta Samsudin murder case closed. (Click here and here for some articles)

Background
In July 2004, one En Hanif Basree Abd Rahman was acquitted and discharged by the court on the murder of Noritta. Of course, the months leading up to that ruling made for gross reading in the local newspapers… Early on I decided to just not read the papers, as it was obvious that the murder victim, who seems to have been a high-class callgirl, was the one being judged. I’m certain I did the right thing, for as time went by, more and more people started complaining about the level of detail being reported by the papers. Details about tears in the vagina, and age thereof seemed to be the focus of the court, rather than on the clients. Then again, from early on it was rumoured that many VIPs were among the victim’s “customers”, hence the blinkered focus on the victim rather than her clients. And the clients who…

BOH Seri Songket flavored teas

For many a year, boxes of BOH's Seri Songket flavored tea have served as handy buah tangans for relatives and friends in Switzerland and the USA, providing exotic teas in an exquisite bit of packaging. I'd not tasted any of these teas for myself, though, so this time around on my trip to Malaysia I made it a point to get me a few boxes of my own.

I picked three: Earl Grey with Tangerine; Passion Fruit; and Lime & Ginger; and have tasted two out of the three so far. According to Moomykin, the unlikely Lychee Rose combination is surprisingly good, so I'll grab that next time. Other flavors available in theory are Cinnamon; Clove & Cardamom; Mango; and Vanilla.

Review of the Seri Songket Passion Fruit flavored tea:
I've had this twice so far.

When you open the sachet, the smell/flavor is rather overpowering. But it all disappears when the teabag is steeped in hot water.

The first time, I used one bag to make 4 cups of tea. It seemed a touch watery, and tasted j…

It's been a while...

It's been so long.

Here's what's been going on. I had one kid, then another. Thing One / Nova was my first ever exposure to a kid. I'd never changed a diaper until he came along, and even then I deferred to the hubs or the NICU nurses before I forced myself to overcome that ?fear?.

He is my first. So I always wondered during tough times, was it just me? Or was it also him?

Turns out, it was us both.


He starts First Grade this August. He's currently being (re-)evaluated for an IEP (Individualised Education Plan). ADHD. ODD. ASD. SPD. The journey to these labels was a long one. And still ongoing because I don't think we have it quite right yet. But the labels help. I fought against getting labels. But now I seek them. Anything to help understand. Never in a million years would I have foreseen me medicating my kids. Yet here I am, seeking new meds, getting him a genetic test that should help identify which medications should help him, since the usual suspects see…
