"No, Watson, this was not done by accident, but by design." -Sherlock Holmes

Post by: Beth

At noon today, I woke up and discovered Raja was not still in the bed. This was unsurprising, as I knew basketball was coming on this morning around 7am-ish Singapore time, and he'd been anxious to make sure he could watch the games online. That privilege is, of course, dependent on how fast the internet connection speed is at the time of the game. He was a bit worried, as sometimes it's really fast here in our new apartment, and at others, it's too slow for streaming video to play properly. After all, these were the final four games coming on this morning, so tensions were running high in our home.

This is what I walked into when I stumbled blurry-eyed from our bedroom into the living room:




When I squinted up at the ceiling and back at Raja, he simply said "The internet wasn't fast enough before I did this." I silently walked back into the bedroom and retrieved the camera. That was the end of that conversation.

mmm getting into trouble, much? *laughs* slow internet connection is such a pain! More so when it's irregular, so you actually get your hopes up at times...

By the way, whe do you always find just the appropriate quote?

I'll try to post this under a more identifiyable name this time...

That's exactly the annoying part.. sometimes it's so fast and we think we're settled. Then it creeps back to snail pace. :)

And I actually hate the fact that I started this quote thing.. Sometimes the blog post will take me 10 minutes to write, and I'll spend 3 times that searching for a good quote. I've basically hanged myself here.. ;)

Thanks for posting a comment! :)

I was waiting to see if he got to watch the games. I asked dad about it last night. Glad he figured out a way. Oh and I love the quotes too. Love you guys,

Oh no, no, no. Don't hate it! I really love the quotes! Makes your blog very personal...

I should say I have a love/hate relationship going on with the quotes.. I hate searching endlessly and (what feels like hopelessly), but I DO love the satisfaction of finding one that fits. I just have to figure out a way to do it more efficiently is all. :)
Thanks for the compliment!

Beth, you two make me laugh! I can't imagine myself being so calm if I walked in on that scene! Sounds like Singapore is good & I'm loving the food reviews!

Men!

Although, I have to applaud his dedication to his sport.

Oh, and as for the quotes, have you tried Brainyquote.com?
