À la recherche du temps perdu

news from nowhere

Month: November, 2005

原本已心灰意冷的,今天去完李歐梵教授X毛俊輝先生的對話後,又復活過來了。

無奈第二天。

Why would one feel exhausted without being able to recall the cause of the exhaustion?

料o岩o岩話我知,又有人quit 左ampost 啦… 唔通真係咁harsh ?有無我之前上庄咁harsh 先?但總唔可以出師未捷身先死o架,我要tough and stong !

I did not realize Father has this wonderful The Complete Illustrated Works Of Lewis Carroll until it showed up among the millions of books awaiting reshelving after the refurbishment work of the flat was done. I had read Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass many years ago and I remember I was very impressed indeed. How often do word plays make people laugh and put their thumbs up? And I guess Alice would say it “very uncivil” indeed – but who can help it? It was really flattering for me (at that age) to understand the numerous word plays within the text; and say what may the scholars about Alice as the manifestation of the “Uncanny” or the anxiety of female sexuality, to me, the greatest achievement of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass is Lewis Carroll’s (Charles Dodgeson) witticism, quite contrary to Oscar Wilde’s, of playing with the English language as well as the English custom. Derrida might as well say it is a kind of Deconstruction, but as Lewis Carroll lived before Derrida I would rather not have people using this term for the great Oxford Mathematician in Victorian England.

And then of course, John Tenniel’s illustration is the only Alice illustration I would ever recognize.

o岩o岩由何東返o黎… 無諗過開個會都咁攰…
原本只係同Ruffina 傾下LHTHGA membership recruitment o既問題,因為唔再用原本個方案都已經無咩可以傾,但係傾下傾下其他o野就變到好晏;之後仲同兩個下下下庄傾新庄o既問題,一講就拉埋好多其他問題,最後無結論不特止仲得個灰字。再上Aniki 度坐o左一陣,見到成十二點於是出發走人。

其實,有Do野已經唔係我地可以幫到忙o既。Joey 同我宜家可以同應該做o既,就只有搞好GA 呢件事。其他事,都係聽天由命。

聽日又變o左唔使返工lu…

自從房間牆上的層板塌了下來險些沒把我給壓死後,我忘掉了寶物被壓碎的傷痛,又再振作起來了。反正,真正的寶物,存在我心中;無論外面有甚麼天災人禍,只要我還活着,就永遠不會離開我。看開了之後,今天忽然興之所至,對着庄友們給我的照片,一口氣寫了三篇!現在仍未有睡意,還要再寫下去呢!

原本不打算看的,但因為在表起之前油畫課的作業,不期然就看了新一季的”America’s Next Top Model” 起來。感覺這季的參賽者沒之前的那麼有性格,但反而對那名叫Kim 的lesbian 頗有興趣。最令我驚訝的是,Twiggy 竟是評判之一!令我尖叫了起來-這麼一來是不看不可了!(我還是很想化Twiggy 的眼粧,有人懂得可以教我嗎?)

看有線新聞重播的港大”Meeting Chris Pattern” 看晚了-不過我真的喜歡聽操純正英國口音的英國人演說。彭定康演說出色是人所共知,但那其實是大部分英國學子所擁有的特質:實而不華,含蓄而不失幽默感。想起以前唸Aristotle 的Politics ,雅典的小孩子從小就必定要接受說話訓練,於是每個雅典人都有演說的能力。我唸了這麼多年書,還是不太懂得在人前說話,是我的問題,還是現在香港的教育還沒二千多年前的雅典好?

不幸的事發生了。

抑或,我還生存,是幸運?

EGM 進行中時,Ally 俾左隻CD-R 我,上面寫住”ALLY’S HALL LIFE”。係裡面我揾到呢張相:



呢一張望落去無咩特別既相,係我地十個final year + 野仁最後一次練波時影既。平時咁專注練習,又點會無啦啦影相呢。所以呢一輯相係我地最後亦係唯一既練波相。不過唔知點解歐碧,Joanna 同Vivien 無影到,所以十個死剩種得返七個。之後野仁淋左D水落MayMay 個頭度,之後有個gag 位,不過為左保護當事人,都係唔係呢度講。記得我仲嫌個日天陰,唔係最靚既P2。Joey 同Jessica 仲係草地上玩側手翻… Those were the days。




海洋公園全城哈囉喂



攝於驚劇怨伶外




滑浪飛船:Joey 同我好cheap 咁伏低左…





於是得歐碧一個變成咁……

Super busy these days…!!!

Friday – Unpacking things back home. My AIRLAND MATTRESS is arrived!!!

Saturday – LHTHGA EGM + Sports Day. Met Gigi at 西寶城 and bought some drinks at Wellcome. Lunch at Rebecca. Preparations for EGM at Ho Tim. EGM started. A bit trouble about the amendment of the constitution, finally passed. Proceeded to Lindsay Ride. Basketball: exciting! Badminton: a bit slow – Volleyball – another climax! Overall the atmosphere was good, better than expected. The pasts were so very energetic they would not be rivalled by the currents… Somehow they had a glow current hallmates do not possess, though I cannot tell what that is. Something called character. Character of Ho Tung Girls. Whole event finished by 8:30pm. Dinner at 西環好彩. 脾Ling asked if it was me who invitied her, she was so encouraging that I feel I must not fail… the kind of positive pressure by which I had always been prompted during my 3 years in LHT. Took the opportunity to ask Eman as well, like the other 大仙 she immediately agreed without doubting. 說做就做,做了就不後悔 – this is the Ho Tung spirit I aspire most.

Sunday – The final move back home. Exhausted. A whole house of stuff. Unpacked a little, then set off to meet 歐碧 for a performance at 牛棚: 《333 神曲》. Dinner at Kowloon City. Went to the venue, saw 張逹明  The theatre was small, containing at most 100 audiences. A modern production of Dante’s classic… not bad. The 3rd episode “Paradise” by the Japanese director is the best. Both impressed by one of the Japanese actresses. Starting to think, if 藝穗會 is similiar in size to here, it will be quite a challenge designing the setting for Mamafriend’s drama…  

Today – Internet reconnected. Unpacking. TV reset. Stove reset. Normal live begins. Living in a yellow mess trying to work out the oil painting homework and a reflection about Saturday. I think, I do not want a job yet.
