I skipped one marking session this morning as I didn't feel that I had the energy to go into the department. Also, it was raining this morning, so, I didn't want to risk the weather. Turned out that my supervisor was free this morning and he did the markups instead. Wonderful. So, my next markup session will be on Monday.
I've also just received an email from home. Seems that my dad fell ill over Chinese New Year as well. This piggy year must be bad for us two monkeys. My dad told me that he has taken a bunch of pictures of the twins. He'll send me some later. Cool! Surprisingly, I miss the two newborns, which is weird since I've never even laid eyes on them before!
I'd also been visiting Ramsay these last two days as I did not have the mood to cook, and I needed real food. There's this new girl that's working there. I cannot place her ethnicity. She might be eastern european or even possibly oriental. Anyway, she's got this really hot exotic look. I should go do Ramsay more often. Haha! She's nice too, not stingy on the portions like Rachel is.
That's something that I've never understood. I never quite figured out the reason that many of the kitchen staff are stingy on the portions. They're just hired to work in the kitchen. It must be a power trip. I've had to argue with them several times. If they become too obtuse, I'll just refuse to pay and leave. Thankfully, I've not had to do that yet as they usually give in at the end.

UPDATE: Damn! The hot girl wasn't working there tonite! I hope that they had not fired her. Also, I'm afraid that news of my imminent recovery might have been slightly pre-mature. Double Damn!
