I feel so self conscious of how tiny my ears are. there’s so little real estate on top that after I wear my mask, my glasses just rest on top of its straps. Went for dinner at Sitka with J and CT and regret a bit mentioning it.
I know this is irrational, and I would never mind someone else’s tiny ears, but the feelings are the feelings.
Sitka was so noisy I had to make a valiant effort to be human. I couldn’t concentrate on anything between the music and loud conversation bouncing off the walls. I couldn’t think and struggled to visualise anything. Couldn’t focus on what was going on.
Maybe after covid I will no longer be capable of adapting to presences (maybe I will refresh this ability every Hungry Ghost fest).
Trying to get my less-than-one-month-old Samsung smart watch fixed at the centre: an ordeal.
- Syazwan: we tested it and the watch works on our phones.
- Me: are you giving me a Samsung phone?
- S: it also works on the iPhones we tested
- M: so it works on some phones some of the time?
- S: because this watch can connect, but your phone cannot connect, it is not covered under warranty because it is not the watch.
- M: (WOW THIS BULLSHIT lack of accountability??) oh I see. In that case, lend me your lighter. I will set the watch on fire and melt it here between us, since that’s all the value it has to me.
He got really stressed and disappeared for a while and came back and said they would be replacing my watch with a new one. Then he said they feared the new watch may also spoil the same way, and I said that was my worry too (but for as long as the warranty is shining new, it’s not my problem yet).
He had earlier said it was common for iPhone users to have issues with the watch. That is, until it was time to wave the claim at me that their iPhone could connect to it.
PT wants to train thrice this week. 😬
Bell is going to be working with my favourite choreographer! Can’t believe I forgot to say so at dinner.
