pretty pink

this weeks been a scorcher.
has been 30 degrees plus in Tokyo (we topped the 35 degree mark the other day) and gunma prefecture got up to 39 degrees. bugger that.
our office is warm to say the least with the aircon set at 28 which basically means the aircon is spewing out thick warm air that just makes the sweat run at a slower pace.
not cool (pun intended)

a few colleagues at the office bought those USB fans so the other day after work I went on the hunt for one.
well, talk about popular. the first two stores I went into were out of stock but my luck changed in the third store, where they had five left.
the last five were all in pink color.
pink...
pretty pink...
she lady at the store went on to explain that they did have them in white, black, blue, even silver and gold but all that was left was pink, and even these are selling out fast.
I spent the next 10 minutes holding the little square box containing a pink fan wondering if I should try my luck elsewhere or just be a man and buy the god dam fan.
pink...
it was then that I remembered what the new temp lady at work told me.
we were having some after 5 drinks and she said was interested in tarot card reading etc. I'm so not into that but she said if I told her my birth dates she would give me a run down on my personality.
sounds like some primary school game but it turns out that I like the number 8 (true) and my lucky color was yup, you guessed it, pink. pretty pink.
can't say it's my favorite color although I have a few pink items stashed away.
so I though bugger it, the extra luck won't go amiss, and a few cha-chings later I'm the proud owner of a pretty pink USB desk fan.
haven't got too many funny looks at the office which I'm not sure is a good thing or not but at least I'm a tad cooler.
it has two settings, low and high; so can't figure them out as the high setting doesn't seem to give off any stronger wind but just makes my desk vibrate a bit.
no doubt will start getting sone funny looks if I set it to high.

what a difference from hk!
back in hk it's too cold and we had to wear cardigans at the office now... this.

Hang on, summer will be over more quickly than it was in hk...

btw, no one's gonna think anything less of you because of your pink fan :)

haha! funny post! i can picture you at the store in front of the pink fan wonder whether or not to buy it...

well realax! it takes a real man to buy a pink fan! (you go girl! haha, just kidding) seriously.

life is funny. either it's too hot like in tokyo and you complain, or it's too cold- like it's in oslo and i complain...

can't win can we; it's either too cold or too hot.
I should have just stayed put in new zealand where it's comfortable all year round!

it freaks me out a bit thinking that the psychics have me figured out both here and in hong kong! god, is there any escaping them!
not that I have much to hid, but as long as they stick to my favorite colors and numbers, and maybe drop hints that one day I'm gonna be mega rich, then I'm happy. let's not delve (??) too deep I say.

oh, and I installed that app, haven't used it yet but will get around to it.

thanks for the encouraging comments (err)
here's me so hoping that you have a pink fan too, or at least a pink stapler maybe? come on, spill the beans, what pink stationary to you have at work?

How about "Perky in Pink"? Surely that's more acceptable? :)

"perky" is more suitable to me really.
