oh what a bother! i am in the library and was rummaging in my bag, and saw this… the freaking remote control for the tv. how did it get in there!! i must have put it in there without realising it. i think in my haste to put in the adaptor, i must have grabbed the remote as well. though if it has been sitting on the side table it would not be anywhere near the adaptor. i am trying to think back but it is all a blank. i dont switch the tv on in the morning as there is nothing on tv in the morning that i want to see. so by rights this remote should have been sitting on the side table far from the sofa where my adaptor would be.

that is the naughty remote hiding in my bag, and i found it just now. i wonder if simon can cancel the order . maybe not.

 and i got a message from someone who i have lost touch with from my past. it was from the meetup group that i recently joined, the one that organised the naked sunbathing session. he joined yesterday it seems  and saw my photo, and sent me a message asking if it was me, and if i am in london. i was puzzled at the message because i did not recognise him. but anyway i replied saying i am in london and why did he ask. and he said its been sometime since i went to malaysia. that was when i realised it was him, and i went looking in my address book and saw his telephonenumber in the address he was living it at the time, near marble arch, and i called him and he answered . he is still living there after all these years. i last went back to malaysia to look after my father in 2008 i think. it seems he called when i was away and simon told him i have gone back to malaysia and dont know when i will be back. so he thought i have gone for good left the country.

he said he left a message on the phone, for me to call him back if i got back; but when i got back many months later, simon forgot to tell me he called and i did not access the messages in the phone and so i forgot all about it. now and then i did wonder what happened to him. but i think i forgot his name and so did not think of looking up his number in my address book.

i can be very casual about keeping up with friends actually and have just forgotten friends.

ah well, it seems he got married to his thai friend who he has been having a long distance relationship for many years. and when they got married the guy was able to come to london to stay with him. well i shall be seeing them tomorrow so i shall be able to catch up with him on his news then. so it looks like i have found two items that i have lost. one a few days ago, and the other a lost friend of something like 10yrs ago.
