To descend freely by the force of gravity

Today has been a rather interesting day for me. It started off at 7.30 a.m.when I woke up to the sound of my alarm clock. Instead of pressing the snooze button like I normally do, I woke up bright and early, eager to seize the day. I was feeling cheerful cos my sister and her bff Carol had just arrived the previous night.

Another thing that excited me today was the fact that I had a meeting with both Yoda and Obi Wan. I don’t normally make a big effort to dress up for these meetings but my mood today was exceptionally different.  Today, I was feeling a little vain cos....


I had these nails to flaunt!!




I finally got Kay’s giveaway gift yesterday and had been playing with the goodies ever since. The stuff in her gift box are awesome! I had so much fun painting my nails and pasting pretty stickers on them. Thanks for the special delivery Kay! :)

Now where was I? Oh yes. Meeting the jedis right? So I got to the office at 8.50 am and started getting my stuff ready for the meet up. I spent the whole hour doing last minute checks on my analysis and the print out for the transcripts. Every 10 minutes or so I'd stop to admire my oh-so-pretty nails and started imagining Obi Wan's reaction to them.

After an hour of printing and daydreaming, it was time to make a move. I walked out with my sling bag and quickly I headed to the UCSA cafe where the three of us promised to meet. When I got there, I decided to walk in through the main door.

HUGE mistake.

The main entrance led to the main area of the cafe where most of the mingling and eating takes place. So. If one were to make a spectacle of oneself, one can easily get an audience of 30-40 people here. That's exactly what I achieved today. Can you guess what happened?



I fell flat on my butt. 



It wasn't a ladylike fall. It was more like a Humpty Dumpty kind of fall you know. A great, big, messy fall. That is probably the best definition for the word HUMILIATING. I wasn't hurt or anything. There's more than enough padding back there. But damnit, it was so embarassing! I know I'm a bit of a klutz but falling at the cafe is just a tragedy.

So what did I do? Well, after uttering a panicky OMG, I picked myself up, dusted off my bum and walked straight to the usual spot where Yoda sits every week. If it weren't for the meeting, I would've left the cafe in a heartbeat. I didn't look around to see if anyone was looking or laughing. I bet they were but I chose not to bother.

One thing made me feel better though. Yoda and Obi Wan missed all the action cos they were both late for the meeting. Thank God for that.

I have psychologically recovered from the fall but I don't think I'll visit the cafe anytime soon. It's too malufying.

Ouch! I know how embarrassing something like that feels. Do u usually turn red when u get embarrassed? I do and it makes it a lot more embarrassing. Lagi bagus kalau nda pndai turn red, bleh lagi blagak cool. hehe:)
