've just tried using Live Journal to keep this page but it just seems to complicated for me to understand. Not when I've just about figured out how to do this one and even then I'm not too sure yet.

I'm being anti-social at the moment. I have friends here, but I guess this is going to be my little obsession for abit. Until the novelty wears off anyway. They're watching Jerry Maguire outside and I think there are ice cream cones in the freezer. But the ice cream can wait and Jerry Maguire, well, I think it's a painful movie to watch, well bits of it anyway. "SHOW ME THE MONEY!!!!" Yup.

I've been told by at least 2 people today that they can't be bothered to read this online journal thingy cos it isn't about them. Ok... I don't know what else to say but that this journal is about what I did and thought about today. Not about a particular other person. Those of you who complain only Daniel features in it, well, Daniel and I share the same house. So there.

If you recall from my first entry about the weather being all muggy; well, the heavens decided to open up this evening. I was out in the city with Dan and some friends. And we had to hang around because the friend who drove, Kevin, insisted that the car was parked very far away and he didn't want to get wet. Well, yeah. Sharon, his girlfriend had a problem with the rain as her shoes had a big slit at the bottom so her socks were getting wet (It's time to get a new pair of shoes, Sharon) :). Anyway, when we finally got home, the weather had cleared and it was a really pretty sight.

The sky had cleared and was orange because of the sunset and there were not one but TWO rainbows in the sky. One on top of the other. It was a sight to behold. The arcs were really clear, so you could actually see from start to finish of it. Of course, you couldn't see the end bits as that would have meant there were pots of gold to be found (which would have been very useful, but I guess not). The one at the bottome was very much clearer than the one on top of it. It almost seemed like the one on top was just a spectre of the other. Very awesome.

It got us into a debate, while starring opened mouth at it (drizzling raindrops ending up in our mouths), about how rainbows are formed. As none of us could remember any Secondary School physics, the debate was short and no conclusion came out of it.

It just made me think what I'm going to miss when I leave and go back to Singapore. It's hard to find a street empty enough in Singapore to stand in the middle of it, face upturned in awe to the heavens, marvelling at its wonder. Sigh. I guess we can't all have our druthers (It's a line Daniel always uses. Apparently, it means we can't have everything we want and I'm taking his word).

Ok, I think it's time for the ice cream.
