Not moving

There are days when you’re actually pretty free for a while and could choose to go somewhere and do stuff that you wouldn’t ordinarily get to do at that kind of time. Today is one of those days for me. The Fruit Farm actually held a doctors’ lunch at Prive and let everyone who attended knock off early – which is why I’m writing this at 5:01 p.m. – and I could have gone and met Corona for some shopping, followed by dinner and drinks after… but I just didn’t want to. Didn’t have the energy. All I want to do is to stay home, shower, have instant noodles for dinner and go to bed early. There are days like this.

      Thank you, dear Purplejake. Best of New Year’s to you too. ‘Lovin’ the purple’ is an excellent tagline. :)

Welcome to my blog!

My blog-name is Katie but I will not respond if you call me that in real life because it's not my real name. Yes, I do practise virtual-world paranoia. No, I do not enjoy stalkers. But I do enjoy writing and having folks reading said writing, so welcome to my world. It's nice to meet you.

Don’t say I didn’t say this…

Disclaimers: 1) I cannot help but bitch about work sometimes, but everything here comes under the realm of personal remarks, and nothing here is said in my professional capacity. Nor does anything here reflect the opinion of the institutions that employ me. This is just me shooting off. 2) Most identities have been anonymized, particularly those of folks I know on a personal basis. Same goes for my workplaces. However, commercial and public places and figures remain named. Otherwise some things just wouldn't make sense. 3) Links and sources have been provided where appropriate and possible. They are not meant to challenge anyone's ownership. If this causes any discomfort or offence, please let me know.
