I'm listening but theres no sound

Isn't anyone tryin to find me?
Won't somebody come take me home
It's a damn cold night
Trying to figure out this life
Wont you take me by the hand
take me somewhere new
I dont know who you are
but I... I'm with you

I don't really care much about Avril Lavigne, (and she can't sing live!) but the lyrics to her "I'm with you" is poignant where it matters.
Isn't every night a chilly night to the longing heart?
And how many times have we tried to unravel our lives?
And the desire, the desire to be led, to be rescued by the knight in shining armour (or Saint Joan of Arc or whatever) so that
we can sleep tight,
at night,
so the bedbugs won't bite.

I'm with you.

Flurry of posts.
Last weekend I was over at Sim Lim Sq, shopping for a cheapo digital camera. Dropped my fuji finepix of two and a half years while I was at the other end of the globe, and now it not working well. Hence the perfect excuse to get another digital camera. I don't need high resolution since I don't print my pictures, and something small and handy would be ideal. And better if it could be used as a webcam.

And I stumbled onto this camera. Amconics, not a famous brand, but it fits snugly in my palm, and it's less than $200!

The cough persists. Especially when I wake up in the morning. Must be the aircon. Lots of phlegm. But life goes on.
Gymmed twice, met up with Cindy. She gave me Prince which she got in Paris while I got her a Harrods bear from London. (Nope, not the special edition with the 'H' at the feet =P )

So now I've got:
Prince the frog

Sitting on a lily pad
I'm all alone and feeling sad
So won't you be a friend to me
And let me jump upon your knee!


Legs the frog

Legs the Beanie Baby was one of the original nine Beanie Babies !


Smoochy the frog

Is he a frog or maybe a prince?
This confusion makes him wince
Find the answer, help him with this
Be the the one to give him a kiss!

That makes three.
I think I've got a fetish for reptiles.
