Sheesh. Definitely having a relapse of those night before Stupid O'Clock in the morning flight blues. You'd think I'd be used to it by now and it's not even as if next week is likely to be particularly arduous and it's only 4 days. Must be some weird Pavlovian thing. Ah well. It's not like I didn't know what I was letting myself in for when I took this job. Weird thing is one of the things bugging me most is the thought of no fencing next week.

You make up your mind, you choose the chance you take
You ride to where the highway ends and the desert breaks
Out on to an open road you ride until the day
You learn to sleep at night with the price you pay

Still, been a fun day so far. Got a call from ladydchaos this morning asking if I could be persuaded to head down to Chinatown today. Now, the sensible thing would have been to decline and pack for Stockholm and Redemption as I'm only flying back the night before but, yeah, no significant resistance. Still, fun meeting up with her, mrmrsmith, bornof_thenight, sakara75 and ksbpooks amongst others for a good chat and meal at Wong Kei (good to see they're still maintaining their legendary standards of service and courtesy ;-)). Definitely a tad hectic down there. Felt like being in a big pike press at times. Just a shame I had to duck out early and head on home to finish preparing which is what I should be doing right now.

When I say legendary, I wasn't kidding. The place is infamous for the rudeness of its staff but it nonetheless became popular (especially among students) due to its low prices. Now, I'm not sure how it compares pricewise but its appalling service has become almost an attraction. Hell, my parents went there because they'd heard so much about how rude the waiters were. My father came back saying he was a bit disappointed, all went well, but I pointed out they'd gone there and ordered in Cantonese. If they'd been a bunch of gweilo speaking English, things would likely have been very different!
