Close your eyes and I'll kiss you
Tomorrow I'll miss you
Remember I'll always be true
And then while I'm away
I'll write home every day
And I'll send all my loving to you

I'll pretend that I'm kissing
The lips I am missing
And hope that my dreams will come true
And then while I'm away
I'll write home every day
And I'll send all my loving to you

All my loving, I will send to you
All my loving, darling I'll be true

- All My Loving, by the Beatles.

I'm a sucker for melancholy musicals - in this case Across the Universe. But to be sure, there was a section midway through the show when the show totally lost the plot. If I hadn't been on an airplane I would have switched it off and done something else...

Blogging has kind of gone soft

Heh... been very busy, plus I think it's easier to do links in facebook. What should I do in this space?

10 Annoying Habits of a Geeky Spouse

Definitely guilty!

I think the one KeY finds most annoying now:

8. Looking up information while a discussion/argument is still in progress - So what are laptops and mobile phones for, if not to resolve disputes or questions wherever you happen to be? Why would anyone get annoyed when you pull out your iPhone in the middle of a discussion about, say, a news story, and a minute later break back into the conversation with the details of the story that everyone else had forgotten? Yeah, it beats me, too, but my wife insists this belongs on the list.
Yup. She hates this!

Resident Evil 5

Great review of the game over at Ars Technica. I played the demo, KeY and I got scared to hell, and I'm looking forward to playing it in live, split-screen co-op late at night with anyone who's game!

The ultimate public sacrifice

But there's a price one pays in becoming president. Giving up being liked is the ultimate public sacrifice. This was the hardest lesson for Bill Clinton, who loved people and found the isolation of the presidency particularly brutal. Similarly, Obama wants to stay in touch with everyday Americans, as symbolized by his reluctance to surrender his BlackBerry.

There was a time last week when Obama looked younger than usual. Not youthful so much as not fully formed. He seemed out of place in his presidential role. In a word, he seemed haunted. Had he been visited by the ghosts of Christmas future?

Dwarven Forge

I wonder if Dwarven Forge works with Descent...

Getting serious about board games?

I'm thinking about it.... Not sure where the value is yet.. but guess I have to work on teaching
board games first... I can see opportunities in hosting, facilitating, re-packaging, but I'm really not sure that there's a sustainable business proposition there...

Reliving the day everything changed :>

Wonderful Terry from Oneeyeclick just passed us the photos from the big day. Reviewing the photos is just such an uplifting experience, thinking back to that day - such a momentous day, when the world revolved and shifted and suddenly everything was different, even if it was still the same.

And looking through the happy faces of friends and family of the night shots - I'm smiling so much I must look like an idiot now. :>

Thanks to everyone for coming, and making the night a great night for us! I'll upload the photos soon!

And special thanks to the helpers! :>

The Morning After - Final

Lastly, seeing our guests and friends really made our day.. I'm very sorry we couldn't spend as much time chatting with you as we would have liked. The night was over in a blink, too quickly for us to have more than a few words and a photo opp. Sigh... But we will catch up with you some more!

The Morning After (1/3)

Wow! It's done at last! Really appreciate the good wishes of all our friends and relatives, whether they were able to come or not. Especially our helpers:

Chu Yun, whose encouragement and support helped keY to get through the long day...
Sangee, whose angelic voice brought us through the ceremony...
Junx and Lifang, who provided the beautiful valet coupons and made sure the food and drinks supply kept coming, and took on that stress for me...
Qianhui, Raymond, Marie, Kangwei and Huien, who warmly greeted our guests...
Nekki and Peiling, who ran around making sure there was music and space for everyone
Qiwei, making sure the cakes, music and goodies all came at the right time ...
Jeremy, for accompanying us all day...
Zeal, for being our Blair witch boy...
Shoon, for the wonderful wines...
Bryan, our Ringbearer..
Erin and Emily, our two gorgeous little flowergirls...
