Pictures & lessons

This is a picture of my desk. This is how it looks on any normal morning. I took this picture because I saw it in a completely new light when I walked in the other day. Me, I have never considered myself a lover of colors. If you open my wardrobe, you'll see lots and lots of blacks, whites, and mostly dull colors. I scoff at people who bedeck their work desks with cute, colorful pictures, or stuffed toys, or pictures of themselves/boyfriends/girlfriends/spouses/kids/relatives/even starngers. Until I was struck down with the light and it opened my eyes and I realised that I'm as bad as everyone else. I'm as disgustingly sweet and banal as the common man! Oh woe! :P Well, it's not too bad. I guess. At least the tables in my room at home are not that colorful. Did I ever mention that I use 3 tea bags in one cup? Yep, I like my tea strong, just like my men! :D

Check out this picture I took of this massive eagle the other day. I was in the kitchen cooking when I saw this bird perched atop the neighbor's toilet pipe. 'How romantic!' I thought, and went to get my camera. It must've been camera shy though, because it took flight the second I was about to take a shot...
A toilet pipe is a good perching place to perch on I suppose, if you're a bird. However, if you're human who loves perching on toilet pipes, you'd be a birdbrain.

Birds, they're just like humans. We all seem to always find a reason to take flight, even when there is none.

hah! Took a quick glance at my table after reading your post but found that it's so so not colorful at all. I guess it's because my stuffs are a collection of convenience :P

I like my tea/coffee super strong too :)

Hmmm... I glanced around my little room after reading this. What I saw was not much color, but a lot of papers, and books. Despite my attempts at making it as personal and homely as possible, it still sadly looks like an office. Maybe that's the general idea, though. I guess if i felt too 'at home' I wouldn't be in the mood to work. However, your post has definitely made me realise I need to perk this place up a bit. Thanks.

PS: Why is it so hard to post comments on blogger these days? The same page keeps coming back, arrgh!

Kim - maybe it's because my job is taking care of ad agencies that it doesn't have a chance to get too cluttered up.? :) All the clutters are in the ad agencies.

virgo - Bleh! Nuam I va han ti tak em!

cherrie - Looks like I'm the only one who never have any trouble with blogger these days, everyone's complaining. And don't work at home! Bad bad! :)
