Summer Days Driftin' Away, But Uh-Oh All Those Supper Nights

Dinner with Alvin, Euodia and this Thai girl from SESS also named Bow at Chomp Chomp yesterday. You could put Alvin and Euodia together in an interrogation room and grab popcorn to watch them slug it out cos it is seriously quite entertaining. Just don't end up in the cross-fire.

And a snippet of Thai trivia from Bow: 'Porn' means 'blessing' in Thai. Hence the oft-used suffix in Thai names, like Suthiporn.

In a weird ironic sense, half the fun of Chomp Chomp consists of not being able to get a seat easily. Derivatively, joy is enhanced by being able to home in on a freshly vacated seat and savouring the fruits of your hunt while others can only stand around and watch in envy. Alvin brings it up a notch by saying that to truly enjoy your dinner, you have to sweat. Okay, now that's subjective.

This was followed by supper for the 2nd night in a row. The day before's was really more haphazardly funny because our conversations were punctuated with topic and rhyming games and Irving couldn't think up rhymes for nuts.

Mikaela: Okay I start. Cushion.
Me: Fusion.
Irving: .....

(years later)

Irving: Err.
Mikaela: Okay Richard start.
Irving: No! ... . Err.

(eons later)

Me: Eh pass la.
Irving: NO!
Me: Walaueh :\
Rachel: Wah I better write down my words.

Concededly, I suck at naming political people and credit to Irving for pwning at naming wrestlers.

A diplomat is a person who can tell you to go to Hell in such a way that you actually look forward to the trip.
