Where will you be my darling? Where will you be when the dark is rising?

Okay. I'm a little freaked out now. I've been sleeping early for the last few days and waking up early too. No! That just isn't me! I'm not Howe anymore! -.-. This isn't the only creepy or weird thing to happen to me. I've been sick for the last 2 weeks or so and I'm just letting myself get better naturally. No reason to see the doctor. I was coughing very heavily just now and I tasted blood =/. It doesn't hurt though, which is kinda weird.
Oh, and just a bit of information, on my last Saturday in Singapore, I had Swensen's with Jonathan. I ordered cheese baked rice or something and I moved the dish to rearrange the position a bit. It was super hot! And I mean REALLY hot. I quickly let go and used the bottom plate to move the dish instead. My fingertips did hurt for a while, which I thought was normal. However, later on I realized that the scalded parts were white, and hard and almost "crispy". In other words, in the 1 second it took for me to hold the dish, it was so hot it managed to cook my fingertips -.-. It was bloody painful whenever those white parts touched something, and I couldn't feel with those parts very well. Somehow I feel that I can sympathize with "char siew" now.
Oh, and another creepy thing. I stayed over at Ruz's place a few days ago. I opened up a blog that had a really annoying song, and there was no stop button or something. So I turned his speakers to mute so I could read it without hearing the song. After a few seconds I heard heavy breathing coming from the speakers, and it didn't sound human at all. Geez!
Okay, let's move on to happier news? I enjoyed my weekends quite a fair bit.
Okay, on Friday, I finally settled everything. There wasn't a phone call, but it was settled face to face. Finally, back to before. *Hugs*. Later on about a third of my classmates attended this Mid-Autumn festival celebration hosted by the school. Eh, it was quite alright. There was this riddles section, and I kept answering them correctly, so I walked away with a fair amount of prizes. But guess what? They were all food -.-. Also, at the end of the mostly mediocre performances, the speaker asked whether anyone wanted to volunteer to perform. We straight away pushed Ruz after he came out from the hallway. LOL! He did his firedancing to great cheers and I think he did pretty well, heh. Also, later a baby came on the stage and started playing with the drums. No big deal right? But here's the cool (and scary) part, he actually played properly, and made a different beats and all. Yikes! His beats sounded pretty good, and he never messed up at all. He's only like 3-4 at most. Damn cute!
On Saturday I had service. Since my mom was going out early, I needed to follow her, and I just slacked at Sunway Pyramid till it was service time. While waiting in one area I bumped into Ruzanna, Ken, his friend, Henry. Geez, gathering or what? Anyway, I got a call from my lecturer Vivien that for the resubmission of one of my assignments, I needed to pass up a rationale, to explain the meaning and methods of my painting. Uh... she told me to pass it up at 1pm. It was 12:30pm then. Hell, I wrote as fast as I could and did a two page rationale in the end. I slacked in the arcade and played Tomb Raider: Legend on my PSP till I was picked up for church.
Service was good, and was preached by Keith. It felt funny that I was back in the small auditorium again, since I was in the giant one last week. But I've realized quite a few things different from a smaller church compared to a megachurch. For one, its a lot more cozy and personal. Turn your head anywhere and you'll probably see someone you know. This is unlike CHC SG, where unless you're in GT zone and in delta, turn your head anywhere and you'll probably not see anyone you recognize. Also, when the pastor preaches, you can actually see him. In CHC SG, unless you're really near the front, you'll need the screen to look at him. Otherwise, he just looks like a dot! After service they actually played the Liverpool and Manchester United match on the screen, and any cellgroup that wanted to stay back could watch it. Told ya, it's much more personal.
Had fellowship at some place they called "Orange" (because the entire building is orange -.-). Eh, mostly spent talking to Cherrie, trying to catch up. There was a conversation with the other members about some place in Indonesia. They say that the dead bodies there don't rot, or if they do, they don't smell in the process of decomposition. Creepy. Imagine you had a honeymoon there and a dead body spasms (which they do, in real life). Mood killer.
Today I had a dimsum buffet with W9, just like last time. Damn filling. We ordered 197 plates and bowls of food for the 12 of us. Insane! Of course it was nice, but I'm having a phobia of food now. It was 2pm when I ate. It's 4am now and I'm still full. We hung around the place, and just went to the arcade before we went off.
Anyway, like I mentioned, my sleeping hours are getting weirder, and weirder. On Friday, after a lack of sleep for 40 hours, I slept at midnight and woke up at 10am. On Saturday, I slept at 1am, and woke up at 8am. Today I slept at 9pm and woke up at 4am! ARGH! What the? This is really weird. I usually don't get by with at least 12 hours sleep a day on the weekends. Hmmm... I'm still me, hopefully.
Okay... I need to do my history assignment already. Mornz all.
