Anyhoo, seeing as external factors were obviously not going to change things, I set myself the task of finding things to do for myself (and Toto tagged along, predictably). I finally managed to get Jie Jie to update my blog (and believe me, it was hard! She spends her time out of school eating, sleeping, studying, and going back to sleep. Her life seems even more mundane than mine, really.
So here's what's been happening lately:
She had to say goodbye to her once new, never-before-worn pair of Marks and Sparks shoes. It was a satisfying cause, it was! Which, unfortunately, also earned Toto and I several smacks on the back.
Toto spends most of his time (as always) getting excited over seemingly... nothing.
I'm not related to him. Really.
And other times, like this... Toto looking forlorn. Mummy when are you coming back?
I, on the other hand, have taken to being what most nowadays would deem emo, but I like to say that I'm simply... misunderstood.
And I suppose that's all I've got time for now, because Jie Jie is getting annoyed. So farewell for now... I'll be back! I think. With Jie Jie, you can never be sure.
But do keep checking back regularly for the continued Adventures of... Scruffy and Toto.Astalavista, baby!
(Yes, watching silly cartoons on TV over Kor Kor's shoulder has also proved an entertaining -though not quite intellectually stimulating - way to pass time.)
