1Sept - 5 Nov

2 WHOLE MONTHS! Whatever happened to the time?

Wait a minute, I know what happened to it!

In these 2 months, I have been to Atlantis, travelling back and forth the Pegasus Galaxy and the Milky Way via jump gates. I stayed a while in Babylon 5, renewing my acquaintances with Captain Sheridan, Ambassador Delenn, Londo and G'Kar. I have also travelled in many worlds in search of a cure for the Drakh plague. And perhaps tomorrow, I am embark on the Ring Quest.

But of course, besides my space adventures, when I am back on Earth, there were heaps to do. The Major Vocational exams came and went. A bit of a drama there when the examiner became very ill after a day out in town and had to be hospitalised. But, in the end, all's well. I was there for every single of my candidates - hugs, hairsprays(both for hair and shoe ribbons), words of encouragement, the whole   " I am here for you, go and get it, Tiger" bit.

My birthday came and went. At first, I thought I didn't want to be reminded, eing old and all. Then I thought people had forgotten me - not as many wishes as usual. Then I found out why, they all wished me on FaceBook. Alison and I had a 'girls day out' thing, with Japanese lunch and a makeover. The celebrations did not end at the end of the day though. I had lunches and treats from friends for about 2 weeks!

When everything sort of settled - exams and birthdays etc, I went for a SynVisc procedure. This fluid thingy is injected into my knee to provide better cushion since my cartilages have worn away. That was a week ago. There was another lady who did the same procedure on the same day. According to the doctor, she already went shopping on the 3rd day. But I could not even walk on my 4th. Recovery is slow. *sigh* While I was holding my 'pity party', many friends came and 'rained' on it. Words of encouragement, jokes and just a message that showed 'I care' helped me through it. Space travelling helped too. 

I also read some of my old favourite Agatha Christie books. Did lots of Sudoku. Had to recharge my DS quite a few times.

So here I am, bored to death at home, waiting for the stupid knee to come around and act responsible i.e. let me walk normally and allow to me work properly. I even subscribed to extra movie channels on cable. Perhaps it will give me a chance to get 2010 paperwork prepared. But that's boring stuff too. Something WILL come up!
