Why, Jojo, why??!!

(I took this photo with my arms raised above my head and my elbows off the floor by the way. All that core work is working out for me. :/)

And then she sits up and starts grooming herself!!!

In the words of The Other Half:
"I can't decide if she is insouciant or insolent."

Was it when I whacked my head in a stupid household accident last night?

Was it that Jojo the Cat was exceedingly grumpy this morning for inexplicable reasons?

Was it when I was made to sit through a last minute meeting which should have been conducted 3 weeks ago on a rather unpleasant topic?

I lost a trial today I didn't think I should lose. It shook my entire belief system for an entire afternoon that I kept getting Overlord to review all my contentious matters going out tomorrow.

Oh well.

A timely reminder that sometimes things don't work out in ways that you expect.

Pick up and carry on.

And then I remembered that round about a year ago, I bought someone a bottle of vodka to atone for someone's mistake. I drank the vodka, went home, and made toffee apples for Teachers' Day.

Being a suspicious and superstitious litigator, I am beginning to reconsider when I make toffee apples, or whether I should stop making toffee apples for Teachers' Day altogether.

I was in Court today begging for an adjournment from someone. I told him what I intended to do and how the file is now in my office being looked after. I apologised for the delay and for confusion.

He said:
"It's okay. Doesn't matter what had happened. What matters is that you are here saying this."

I was touched by the show of goodwill, like the feel of a warm mug on a cold day.

One of my favourite childhood treats lovingly made by my father!

My current work pen is a Waterman Limited Edition Harley Davidson.

I bought it at a flea market at a discounted price because I loved the orange on it. It's proven to be quite a nice writer. It is currently inked with Pilot Iroshizuku Shin-Kai.

"Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the secondary consequences. The work, not the people. Your own action, not any possible object of your charity."

I am awfully overworked and stressed out.

I should be depressed. I even remember a time in the past where I would have been devastated by my current state of affairs.

But I am not. I am actually deeply contented sitting here in the night, quietly clearing mail.

This usually means that the end is near and I have made my peace.

It's been 2 years. I can say, hand on heart, that I have tried my best.

It is now time to sit back and see the end approach.

Tomorrow is another new day.

I am thankful for many things, most of all, that I retain the good humour to be thankful and to smile.

Junkyard cars for jumping over.
