Took my "bulldog" out for a walk today
Had a lazy sunday morning...was rather forced into it, it has been absolutely pouring these days. I decided to have a little venture late in the afternoon though, and thankfully it warmed my heart a little: As i passed by the Red Cross HQ at Penang Lane, i saw a lady huddling her 3 kids in the rain, as they made they way to make their donations...bless their souls.
I wandered over to PS and while i had little idea of what or where to go, i eventually ended up at Times bookshop. I guess it happened sub-conciously, i used to hang out at bookshops many years ago (gosh, i'm really getting on in years)...yeah, i'm definitely a nerd. Anywho, as i browsed through the racks and aisles of books and stationary, those lovely greeting cards and novelty notebooks caught my eye. You know, those hardcover notebooks which have lots of either cute pictures or cool designs...but all cost the same as a varsity reference text(!) It then begin to hit me that i have been buying so many greeting cards that i've lots of spares. I always have the bad habit of over-spending on cards, giving excuses like "the design is so cool" or "this will be perfect for someone", and buying 2 or 3 more than neccesary each time...Hallmark should send me some of their stock and bonds LOL
My quote of the day goes to Pixar, describing how they make movies:
"We don't make movies for kids. We make movies for adults, actually ourselves... Kids are born intelligent, and there's no good reason to make dumbed-down entertainment for them."
