Serpentine

You go offline for a couple of days (blog updates not included, and besides, I usually schedule my postings) and BAM!, the moment you come online again, you're swamped with stuff that overwhelms you.

And I'm not even talking about politics. Those things? Are child's play. Believe me. They're worse than bitchy gossiping women! Both camps, no one's the champion. They are all the same.

I had a relaxing weekend. One where I did nothing but laze around. Total bliss. Hence, no Weekend Snapshot this week. Nothing interesting happened, I promise.

Good thing it rained on Sunday, too. Loved the cool weather.

DH tried to coaxed me out for sushi, but I refused. And then on Sunday, he tried again, to no avail, to get me to follow him to his futsal match. It started at 9AM. I'm not prepared to wake up any earlier than 10AM on a Sunday, please.

So, he went alone and his team won the tournament. He said he did a 'Lahm' -- scored the last goal before the game ends. Well, good for you, my dear :p

I'm onto the fifth In Death book at the moment; Ceremony In Death. This one is a little bit spooky because it used witchcraft theme as a base for murder. I read the stories not only for the detective mysteries but for the Eve-Roarke relationship as well.

Their relationship reminded me of Edward-Bella's in many ways, now that I'm reading the series again.

Edward's character is just like Roarke's sans the vampire bits. But I do not know how to explain my infatuation with Edward, though. I've fallen in love with many fictional characters before; Roarke and Ian Thornton to name a few, but Edward? *swoons*

I'm desperately in love with him, with a fictional character. He doesn't exist! I think I need help! Le sigh.

Back to that thing that happened on the interweb while I was away...

So, someone by chance found something that shouldn't be link to a famous (recently, again) certain someone. However, news traveled faster that the speed of light, the speed that is the internet. And everything just got blown away.

Some parties don't agree by the way it got leaked. Some parties pointed out at how it was a public thing and thus, one shouldn't be freaked by the attention it now generates.

To me, both points are irrelevant. I'm sure there's a reason why he used a pseudonym to publish his other work. Even famous writers use pseudonym when they're trying out writing different genre to, perhaps, make it somewhat anonymous. So people could appreciate it as is, instead of linking it to their already famous written work.

Case in point, Nora Roberts and JD Robb. Nora used JD Robb to publish her In Death series. When the first book came out, nobody knew it was her. Once the work generated its own credibility, only then it was revealed to the public who the real author was.

Back to this other famous person.

This latest exposé generated good responds, as well as bad. There are constructive criticisms, and then, there are plain hate messages. For some reason, people are extremely cruel on the internet. When I read the comments and messages left by these haters, I find the intent was rather harsh. It was meant to hurt, belittle and humiliate.

If I can feel that, I do wonder how the person who received it would have felt.

It was said that the profile was created by the real person. However, I noticed something peculiar. The login date for both his profile and his sister's are the same. So it's either they came online at the same time (what are the odds?) or someone was left to admin the profiles.

Or, it could be a bogus profile anyway. Who knew.

I need to get hold of those blasted greeting cards fast. Time is running out.

During lunch today, Cyn and I decided not to eat but loiter around the mall. I thought it'd be good if we go look for the cards. Thus, we went to every gift shops we can find at the mall.

You know, it's not easy to look for generic, non-girlie, non-flowery 'Best Wishes' or 'Encouragement' cards. Everything is either pink, flowery or cute.

I suppose it's ok for friends or someone you know personally. But for a relative stranger? I don't think so. What would that person think? That person may get different ideas. And then, you'll be in trouble. Lol.

Anyway, because I couldn't really choose, I bought four cards altogether. And neither one of it came with any appropriate wordings in it. Looks like I have to compose one of me own. Ugh!

Oh, one of the cards, I'm not exactly sure what's so special about it, costs me a bomb. Like freakin' RM15 y'all! For a card! No wonder people opt to send e-cards nowadays.

Cockaigne

Cockaigne \kah-KAYN\, noun:
An imaginary land of ease and luxury.

Sounds like a bad word, eh? Lol.

Last night, instead of the promised hour, I stayed for two. I feel like as if there's poison seeping through us, lingering around us. It's not good. I wonder if I should talk... but would he listen?

I met up with Mira's teacher today. Same old, same old -- she excels in music, singing and dancing. Other more academic stuff was just 'ok'. She received a lot of Bs and Cs, and you can guess where that Bs mostly came from.

Yes, music and singing. Lol.

They've started teaching them basic Mandarin this term. I saw the workbook. I have no clue how to do revision with Mira on a language I don't even know. How now?

With Jawi, even though I'm not that good at spelling it out, at least I can still managed to read it.

Anyway, I think I should discuss with DH, see if we should send her to a music class or something. She seemed to be very inclined towards that and I think we should be more encouraging in her interest.

At least there, we both can help her out. DH is very musical, whilst I still remember my notes ;)

I'm meeting Su for a movie tonight. We wanted to watch Wanted, but Gardens Signature do not have a showing at 9pm. So, we'll be watching Hulk instead. Bummer.

On another unrelated note, I'm rather pleased to know that I still have 'it'. To catch the look in their eyes. Younger, too. It's been going on for a whole week now. Something is different?

It's a nice feeling all the same :)

Bosan Tahap Cipan

I went shoe shopping with Cyn today at lunch. We've been looking for a pair for a while now but to no avail. However, today I managed to narrow down my choices to two -- one from Vincci, another from Vids & Vads.

I think I'll go with Vincci because their store is nearest to my office. Is that logical? Whatevs.

Instead of actually buying any shoes over lunch, we went to Marks & Spencer and bought a lot of snack stuff. Well, Cyn did -- lots of chips and cookies. I only bought two packs of cookies. One of which I've munched all while pretending to do work.

Sigh.

My colleagues are planning to go for drinks after work. Me included. I'm not feeling up to it. All I want to do is to go home and lose myself in the world of Eve Dallas and Roarke. But then, it would be nice to just hang out with them and bitch about work, yeah?

Maybe I'll stay for an hour.

I have to meet Mira's teacher tomorrow. It's term progress report day. I thought of taking the half day off, but too lazy to text Mr G about it. I'm trying to avoid answering questions I do not have an answer to. Huhu.

And why is it difficult to look for greeting cards that are meant to encourage friends or even loved ones? I've scoured all the shops here for the past two weeks but I couldn't find any. Must I resort to writing one on my own??

Gah!

Oh! I went to Borders on Monday, I think. I asked them about Breaking Dawn. They gave me a more promising answer compared to MPH. The girl said the book should arrive here sometime end of July. She suggests I check again next month to get the latest update.

If I can get it from them, then I might cancel my orders with Amazon. I should call them back by third week of July, I think. That would give me enough time to decide.

It's half past five. The plan was for all of us to stop work now, start clearing our tables and start packing our bags. Just so we can leave at six sharp for the drinks-thingy.

Yeah, right. Haha!

Spider Monkey

I'm ecstatic that Germany won. Woohoo! This is where I go 'Michaellllll. Michael Ballack I love you!'. Eventhough it was Philip Lahm who helped gave the team the winning score.

Obviously, I didn't watch the game. The last World Cup in 2006 was the only time I actually stayed up for. I only listen to commentaries about Euro from DH this time. So, last night after he returned from his Futsal game, he mentioned about Germany vs Turkey game to me. He then proceeded to asked which team I think will win.

Of course, without hesitation I say Germany :) To say otherwise would be blasphemy. Haha. And besides, I don't know nuts about the Turks team lah.

Luckily he didn't place bets, huh ;)

So anyway, I'm seriously thinking of hurting myself. I think it's time. I've been thinking about it for years and years. I'm 35, and I'm ready. I'm no masochist, but the two things I so wanted to do involves some form of pain. Lol. And I've been thinking about it constantly.

July and August will be my months of pain. I can't wait!

Mixed Signals

This thing that we have between us now; sometimes I feel as if there's something more bubbling just underneath it's surface. I thought I'd be safe from that. I was very sure of it.

I thought I've read the signs right. I thought I knew you well enough to know it couldn't come to that. But now, I'm suddenly unsure of what I knew. I'm suddenly unsure about us. I'm suddenly unsure about you.

Because nobody can actually confirm or acknowledge what we supposedly know about you. It was just pure speculation on every one's part. Besides, you neither confirm nor deny it. Perhaps I just took if for granted because I crave your presence.

But now, you left me speculating about us. You left me to speculate my feelings about you. About me. I tried to ignore it, brushing it aside as something trite. However, certain things you did these past and recent weeks are making me doubt myself even more.

When I saw you last, I was shocked to discover how different I am seeing you now. You've just thrown me out of the loop and I am confused. And scared. Or am I just being my delusional self?

But nothing can come out of this, right? Nothing should. At least, that's what I'm trying to tell myself...

To make matters worse, the one I'm trying to distance myself from is not making it any easier. Somehow, you are aware enough to feel it, to feel that I'm getting away from you day by day. And you're trying to pull all the stops by suddenly becoming more attentive to my needs and feelings.

I find that you're not playing fair. All these while I've been fighting, but you hardly care. You think I'm a pest, I know you do. And now after I've all but given up and I'm ready to let you go, you pull the thin string that tied me to you just to keep me closer.

You are making me feel more miserable and bitter by it, you know. The way I see it, this is just temporary. You are feeling threaten. Once I'm back to 'normal', once you feel confident I'm not going anywhere, you'll go on your merry way.

That's very selfish of you.

And where would that leave me? Back to square one, I suppose. However the question is, would I allow it?

Weekend Snapshot # 21



I found this photo while browsing through our collection in the hard disk, to see which to be archived. This was taken on a weekend exactly a year ago.


I've forgotten how long Mira's hair was back then. And I can't remember where we were at -- either Megamall or Suria.

How was your weekend? Check out other Weekenders here.

Voracious

I've come to a decision that the term bookworm wouldn't suit me anymore. I'm not really that studious (I'm no Hermione). I just have a big appetite for literature. So yeah, 'bookworm' is a totally wrong analogy to use where I am concern.

As you know, I bought four new books from the last Popular Book Fest. The one that I went with Mr DJ over one weekend. I've read all of it, and then some. Here are my thoughts on three out of the four books.


Me and Mr Darcy by Alexandra Potter

Your usual chic-lit book. Good for light reading. It's witty and very contemporary. The author was brave enough to use current popular culture references in her book. Normally, authors shy away from using references that are popular now to keep their work timeless.

Emily Albright is a little bit like Bridget Jones character, really.

After her last disastrous date, Emily decided she had had enough with modern men. Pride and Prejudice was her favourite book and nobody come close to her Mr. Darcy. She was about to spend her new year's holiday alone when her co-worker suggested they go down to Mexico for a week of margaritas and manhunting.

She chose to go for a Jane Austen guided tour in England instead. Alone.

During the tour, she 'met' with Mr Darcy himself and hilarious yet romantic situation ensued. She wasn't sure if she dreamed about him or her delusional mind played tricks on her.

On the tour itself, she met Spike, a journalist who was doing some research for his piece on why most women would love to date Mr Darcy. He's anything but alike. He irked her from the moment they laid eyes on each other. But eventually, he professed his attraction to her, and she to him.

And they live happily ever after. The end...

It's interesting to note what Emily discovered: Mr Darcy is a wonderful fantasy for the hopeless romantic. He is the perfect man. However, she had difficulty to grasps his broodiness (it was sexy on paper, but not real life), aloofness and his backward way of thinking while they 'dated'. She don't think they would have lasted if Mr Darcy, from that era, comes to life for her.

Oh, and the author of this book? She's living my dream. I is jealous. Sigh.


The Five People You Meet In Heaven by Mitch Albom

I enjoyed reading Mitch Albom's last book, even though I cried a lot. So when I saw this title in the special discount section at the fair, I picked it up.

This book was as good as For One More Day, but not as heart wrenching. Well, for me at least. I didn't shed a tear at all, but it still left me feeling poignant and melancholic.

The story was about Eddie, the guy who maintained an amusement park at Ruby Pier. It's about the moments before his death; trying to save a little girl, on his birthday, as well as his journey beyond.

He woke up in the afterlife where he met five people who were waiting for him to explain about his life on earth. The five people he met -- some were strangers, some have been his loved ones, some were some one he knows. Yet each of them changed his path for ever, with or without him knowing about it.

They all helped him understand his life and comes to term with some of his nightmares. Everything that happened has its own consequences. After he met all five, it'll be his turn to wait for the girl who life he saved.

And the cycle continues.

Again, the words in this book flowed simply. I think I'll buy Tuesdays With Morrie next. Cyn has read it, and she said the story was very sad. I recommended For One More Day to her, but she's afraid to read it just yet. Lol.


Cat O' Nine Tales by Jeffrey Archer

Wow. I didn't know Lord Archer was incarcerated for perjury. I didn't know he'd released three Prison Diaries either.

I've always enjoyed reading stories by Lord Archer, who happens to be one of my favourite authors. Who would have forgotten Kane & Abel? The Prodigal Daughter was one of my favourites!

This book is a collection of twelve short stories, nine of which are ideas he picked up while in prison.

The stories are quite enlightening, insightful and engaging. All twelve of them. I enjoyed reading all of them immensely.

My favourites are The Man Who Robbed His Own Post Office, Don't Drink The Water, It Can't Be October Already (which has a sad postscript at the end), The Red King (with the most cunning thief, I must say!), The Wisdom of Solomon, Charity Begins At Home and The Alibi (patience is a virtue).

I'm not going to tell why I like them because that'll ruined the story. You have to read it yourself. Lol.

Zonked

I am bored.

Three quarters of the day has gone and I felt as if I haven't done anything productive today. I did nothing major. I'm supposed to spring clean the bookshelves, which I'm not bothered to start at all. At least, I've folded the mountain of laundry and I've cleaned up the kitchen a bit.

For the rest of the day, I just while away my time by reading and day dreaming. I've read through all three Twilight series books thrice already. It took a week to complete all three this time.

Speaking of which, I took the liberty to call MPH a few days ago, to find out when will Breaking Dawn hit the stores. Their rep said we'll only get it perhaps two months after its publication date. TWO MONTHS?!

I don't think I have the patience to wait that long. Besides, I'll know what will happen before reading the book myself because the fandom will be in uproar discussing about it in detail. I won't be able to get away from reading the conclusion. Unless I hide in a cave without internet access.

Which is hard in this day and age, you must admit.

What a girl to do? Pre-order the book from Amazon, of course :p One week delay is better than two months, right. I only hesitated once; to check which one would costs less for me -- to get it from UK or US? If it's from UK, I'll get it within five days, but if it's from US it's much more cheaper, thanks to the exchange rate.

At the moment, I'm trying hard to resist reading any fanfiction, especially speculative ones. I'm not going into any threads that discuss or speculate about the last book either. I do not want to be burned badly if the book did not end the way I expect it to be.

One experience was enough, thank you. I'm still reeling with bitterness and disappointment from Deathly Hallows. I haven't pick up the book for another read or even to glimpse at it since 21st July 2007. It's not even standing beside the other Potter books where it should be, but flung some where at the bottom shelf I think.

Yup, still bitter.

Ok, I think I'll go read Romeo & Juliet now. I need some dose of tragedy in my head. It's all full of happy thoughts (of Edward Cullen) at the moment. Muahaha.

Not that I'm complaining ;-)

Vexation

'Oh. My. Goodness.'

'What?'

'These people are unbelievable!'

'What people?'

'These bunch of lunatics! I can't believe it! Just look at them! Such hypocrites!'

'Calm down. Who are we talking about here?'

'Just because he now look oh-so-handsome and swanky and pretty, they're all over him. All. Over. Him! Like as if he's suddenly royalty or something. I mean, he was good looking even from before, before he took on this new project. But back then, it didn't summed up to this.'

'And that is a problem to you because... ?'

'It's just annoying!'

'Right.'

'Really! Annoying! Are people so easily swayed?'

'But not you. Shouldn't that be good for him, though? For his career now that he's well known and popular. For his new project too, I might add.'

'Well, yes. But do 'they' have to act the way they do? Come, come, look at these photos and forum threads. It's way over the top, I'm telling you.'

'Aww... that's sweet. He looked harmless and friendly. He doesn't seem to have a problem with it. I don't see why it irked you a lot. Hang on. Are you jealous??'

'What? Jealous? Me? JEALOUS? Puh-lease. Don't put me in the same league as those rabid fans. They're relentless!'

'Whatever you say.'

'Why are you smirking at me? No, no. I'm not jealous. I'm just irritated at these people. See this one. She dragged her kids out until late to camp out with the others. Just so she could hang out with the crew, you see. Just so she could wrap her arms around him and take photos and ogle at him. Juvies, that's what they are!'

'Again, I ask... that is a problem to you because?'

'Oh, shut it. You'll never understand. You're Ms. Cool. I get that.'

'Yes, stuck your tongue out at me. That's mature.'

'It's like a fad. Him, that is. It's not like he's never done any other project before, you know. He's done quite a few others after the last big one. And they're all good. Have you seen him in those? He looked sloppy and uninteresting. Hence, nobody give him a second look!'

'But?'

'Now though... he's like Elvis! I think if you were to meet him on the street, you wouldn't recognize it's him. That's how sloppy he is in real life.'

'Like you know?'

'Of course! I may not be as rabid as those fans out there, but I have been following his career quietly. I think he's such a humble and unpretentious kinda guy.'

'Maybe they're very passionate about this project. I'm sure this is not an exception.'

'I've never seen anything like it! Have you seen any fan photos out of Sex and The City movie? Dark Knight, perhaps? Or any other movies for that matter?'

'How would I know? I'm not that obsess with these things.'

'Exactly!'

'He is good looking though. Pretty, even. Look at this one, he looks hot! Look at the hair. Nice pair of hands, too. Beautiful hands. Sexy hands.'

'Ugh! Not you, too! Stop staring at his hands, woman.'

'The man is sex on legs. I'm a hot blooded woman. I'd be gay if I'm not affected by that.'

'Oh, laugh all you want!'

'Aww... come on. Give him a break. This is good for him, no?'

'Of course, it's all good. I don't have a problem with him. He'd earned it. It's the rabid fans that ticked me off. The way they behave around him and the project. Well, not all of them, just these limited few.'

'More like this particular group to me. Screw them, then. This will blow over once it's done. It's all hype.'

'Yeah. I guess so.'

'You ok now?'

'Sure, sure.'

'Right. Let's go. I'm sleepy.'

Pastiche

pastiche \pas-TEESH; pahs-\, noun:
1. A work of art that imitates the style of some previous work.
2. A musical, literary, or artistic composition consisting of selections from various works.
3. A hodgepodge; an incongruous combination of different styles and ingredients.

Jane celebrated her birthday last Friday, I forgot to mentioned that. I was told by Peter that a friend of theirs bought two return tickets to London as her birthday gift. And they're flying business.

Now, how come I don't have excessive generous friends like that?

I wasn't feeling too well the whole of last week and it has somewhat killed my appetite. I didn't take breakfast or lunch for 7 consecutive days (make it 8 now). I hardly take any dinner either. I think this will continue because I really haven't discovered my appetite back.

I managed to lose some weight (hurrah!), though. I think I lost some inches at the waist, too.

Now, I have a problem -- my jeans keep slipping down. If I let it be, I'm sure it'll eventually dropped off. I should be happy, but I just bought this blasted pair last month.

As strange as this may sound, I am confident my conscious has made up its mind this time. After all these while, it has come to this. I believe the inevitable will happen. It will eventually happen -- not today, tomorrow or even next month. Some time this year sounds about right.

At this point in time, I'm just letting things run its own course. There's no need to hurry. Even though I am nervous and wary about this, but it does felt right.

My only hope is that the other party will be prepared for what's coming in the next few months. It shouldn't come as a surprise, I think. The signs should be making its appearance soon enough. I think he feels it but still overconfident it'll not come to that.

And when that time comes, I will remind you again of this peculiar entry.

Claque

claque \KLACK\, noun:
1. A group hired to applaud at a performance.
2. A group of fawning admirers.

She gracefully sat beside me on the love seat, twirling her hair between her tiny fingers. She observed me with a minute eye. I felt as if I'm being given a once over, by a child at that. Suddenly her eyes focused on my hands.

'Aunty, are you a Goth?', she asked with a soft gasped. I'm surprised she even know what that meant. "Why do say that?', I asked. 'Your nails are black'. I followed her gaze. She appeared to be admiring my black nail polish. 'Oh. That. I did this for your Aunt's birthday', I said. 'My cousin is Goth,' she explained without prompting. 'But she didn't pull it off quite well, I think', she said, still admiring my nails.

And so we talked about my black nail polish and how much work I had to put in as I'm never good at painting my own nails. She told me I did a great job because they looked really professional. She then spoke to me about her earring collections (Good, I now know what to get for her birthday!) and I, of my fascination with rings.

Mira came along to sit next to me and the little lady gushes at how beautiful Mira's long fingers are.

Later, when I managed to pulled Su aside, I asked how old was her niece. 'She's eight', was Su's quick reply. 'She really is a mak datin. It'll take forever for her to get ready and she wears different outfit for different time of the day'.

Phew! I don't think fashion was in my mind when I was eight years old. I don't think I'm that advance at that age. I don't even know anything about subcultures until I was in my teens. Goth? I only knew about that after I saw Wednesday Addams in The Addams Family!

Kids grew up fast nowadays, don't they? I wonder if Mira would become a Ms Goody-Two-Shoes, or Ms Nerdy or would she be interested in becoming a Goth too? Ugh, all the angst that comes with it!

Only time will tell. You may think it's too soon to muse about this, but be reminded that Su's niece is only eight years old in our conversation above. Lol. And Mira is now four. That gives me three more years to mould her.

Yikes!

Pre-Birthday Celebration

Su hosted dinner tonight to celebrate her 40th birthday this coming Monday. We first headed to her brother's abode for a small cake-cutting ceremony before heading out to the restaurant. Our reservation was at 8pm.




Mira and I had a great time. We left sometime after ten. And now I am sleepy.... zzzz

Iggy Singh : this is the day to become the undead creatures already

And I think that's why I'm feeling very happy today. Lol. I'm feeling light, unburdened and generally happy about everything. I'm in my happy place right now :)

We're not going to meet up for a movie tonight as well, because tomorrow I'll be attending Su's 40th birthday dinner. I'm thinking of visiting the manicurist to get my nails painted black. Hmmm... or should I just get it done myself. It'll be one sloppy work, though.

Happy Friday the 13th, Edward Cullen! You are definitely my brand of heroin.


Updated @ 2.30pm

My Heaven



Your touch, Your taste, Your breath, Your face
Your hands, Your head, You're sweet, Your love
Your teeth, Your tongue, Your eye, You're mine
Your lips, You're fine, You're heaven on earth

I've waited all my life for you
My favourite kiss
Your perfect skin
Your perfect smile

Waking up and you're next to me
Wrap me up in your arms and back to sleep
Lay my head on your chest and drift away
Dream of you and I'm almost half awake

(The palest green I've never seen
The colour of your eyes
You've taken me so far away
One look and you stop time)

Fell in love with you and
Everything that you are
Nothing I can do I'm really
Crazy about you
When you're next to me

It's just like heaven on earth
You're heaven
You're heaven on earth

Tell me that I'll always be the one that you want
Don't know what I'd do if I ever lose you
Look at you and what I see is heaven on earth
I'm in love with you

Your breath, Your face, Your hands, Your head
You're sweet, Your love, Your tongue

I'd move across the world for you
Just tell me when
Just tell me where
I'll come to you

Take me back to that place in time
Images of you occupy my mind
Far away but I feel you here with me
Dream of you and you're almost next to me

(The palest green I've never seen
The colour of your eyes
You've taken me so far away
One look and you stop time)

Fell in love with you and
Everything that you are
Nothing I can do I'm really
Crazy about you
When you're next to me
It's just like heaven on earth
You're heaven
You're heaven on earth

Tell me that I'll always be the one that you want
Don't know what I'd do if I ever lose you
Look at you and what I see is heaven on earth
I'm in love with you

I'm in love with you
I said I'm so in love
I said I'm so in love
So in love

Fall off the edge of my mind
I fall off the edge of my mind
For you
I fall off the edge of my mind
I fall off the edge of my mind
For you

Fell in love with you and
Everything that you are
Nothing I can do I'm really
Crazy about you
When you're next to me
It's just like heaven on earth
(So in love)
You're heaven
You're heaven on earth

Tell me that I'll always be the one that you want
Don't know what I'd do if I ever lose you
Look at you and what I see is heaven on earth
I'm in love with you

I'm so in love
I'm so in love

I fall off the edge of my mind
(I'm so in love)
When I just look at you
I feel like I'm gonna jump into heaven
(So in love)
And you'll catch me
Catch me if I jump
Will you catch me?

I'm Incorrigible!

Seriously, when I'm in this 'mental' state of mind, which Su's calling it my Edward Cullen mode from now on, I'm glad I have a good friend that would listen and appreciate my infatuation. Lol.

As apparent in our YM conversation yesterday afternoon...

Larawannabe : eh, u wanna know something funny?
Iggy Singh : eh
Iggy Singh : sureeeee
Larawannabe : my vampire?
Iggy Singh : ohoh
Larawannabe : he's 108 years old
Iggy Singh : ok
Iggy Singh : only???
Larawannabe : and he's a VIRGIN. muahahaha
Iggy Singh : that is young
Iggy Singh : ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Iggy Singh :
Larawannabe : yar. he died when he's 17
Iggy Singh : you must be having greater visions
Iggy Singh : ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Larawannabe :
Iggy Singh : you have a "underaged" vamp???????
Iggy Singh : reject lah Daniel Radcliffe
Larawannabe : i like boys remember
Iggy Singh : so if you have sex with the undead, he will still be a virgin kan??
Iggy Singh : i know
Larawannabe : even my vamp is still considered a boy in vamp years. hahaha
Larawannabe : i dunno should he be a virgin still?
Iggy Singh :
Iggy Singh : now, figure that out!
Iggy Singh : start a chat on your Blog
Larawannabe : i'll let u know when the 4th book comes out
Larawannabe : that'll be interesting
Iggy Singh : kkkk
Larawannabe : and he drives a silver volvo s60r
Iggy Singh : you are gone
Larawannabe : i knoowwwwww

Iggy Singh wants to become a werewolf now, after watching Blood and Chocolate on Astro. We used to imagine we'll turn each other into a vampire so we could be each other's companion for eternity. Hehe.

But you know, vamps and werewolfs are enemies, I think. So how?

Back to the question about vamp and sex, what do you think? Would the undead still be a virgin once he has sex? Hmmm... And then while being stuck in the traffic this morning on the way to work, I thought of something else more silly.

If a vamp is bloodless, and we all know it is all about blood rushing south for 'it' to work, how to have sex like that? You should see my silly grin in the car just now. Lol.

And Now, We Wait

I've finished reading Eclipse a few hours ago. I am content and happy with how the story goes so far :-)

I now have some fifty-odd days more to wait for the next book. I hope it'll be released at the same time worldwide (or at least here), though.

August 2. I'll wait for thee patiently (not that I have other choices).

La Tua Cantante

Oh, this is ridiculous! Can I not have some restraint over myself?

Sigh. I guess not. Not unless I want to.

Last night, after much contemplation, I went to the bookstore to buy the second book of the Twilight series, New Moon. I picked up the third book as well but thought I won't be needing it so soon.

Well now, I was wrong! I've finished reading the book and want to immediately to start on the next. The story was that compelling to me. I supposed any story with vampires in it would do this to me, it's unhealthy.

I love Edward Cullen. I don't know why some would prefer Jacob Black. And I'm not irritated at some of Bella's behaviour because I can relate to it in some way.

Oh blast it. I'm sending DH to the bookstore now. I want to know what'll happen next. Hopefully I can be more patient waiting for the fourth and last book. It won't be released until August, I think.

Sigh.

Scary Stories

I took today and tomorrow off from work. The plan was to set aside those things I don't want for the disposal lorry to pick up tomorrow.

Well, that was the plan until I decided to flip through Twilight, wanting to read a few lines. So much for that because now I have read the entire book!

I now long to read the second book, New Moon. If only we've a bookstore that's opened 24 hours, I'd go right this instant. Sigh.

Failing that, now I really need to start on the clearing rubbish work that I've postponed since morning. Haven't I mentioned how easily distracted I can be? ;-)

Poorer Than The Church Mouse

Petrol Rush Definitely poorer now with the new petrol price hike. Freaking RM2.70 per litre y'all. Thank goodness I've pump in full tank on Sunday, so I don't really need to join in the queue right now.

But whose to say I will. I don't think I have the patience to wait lah. Lol.

Reactions from friends varied. Those married, with or without kids or those singletons with greater commitments felt burdened by this.

Two of my friends who are not in any one of the categories above, don't understand what's all the fuss about :p

Not forgetting the 18% increase in our electricity bills soon (how soon, this?). As well as other goods and services (I imagine McDonalds and Pizza Hut delivery will increase their delivery charges too, eh).

Some one needs to explain in more detail to me regarding that 'cash handout' thing.

Maybe I should suggest the idea of us working from home a few days in a week to the Hotness. At least, we'll save some petrol and the company will save on electricity consumption.

And the increment I received a few months back? Makes no difference whatsoever now :p

Más Pobre Que Una Rata

Spanish for 'Poor as a church mouse'; that's me. Well, maybe not. Perhaps until the next pay cheque? Lol.

I send the car for service on Saturday. Some major work had to be done to it other than the usual oil change. I also had to change the two front tyres. Then, had to also change the... err... something-something (can't remember what it was now, but something to do with stabilizing the front tyres lah).

The whole thing costs me a fortune! So now I'm destitute :p

I had unagi for lunch today. Now, when I burped, I can still taste it. Ugh!

That is all.

Weekend Snapshot # 19



Last Saturday morning, MrDJ, Mira and I went to the Popular Book Fest at KL Convention Centre. I bought four new fiction whilst Mira got herself an Enid Blyton's story book and a Disney Princesses colouring book.

MrDJ didn't get himself anything because he had just splurged on a few in the past weeks.

We then headed to California Pizza Kitchen to have brunch. We split after brunch where Mira and I walked around the mall and checked out the commotion at the Concourse level.


Canon held their promotional booth there and I think the crowd were waiting for some Chinese artists to perform. I thought of going into Petronas Science Centre, but looking at the queue? Never mind :p

How was your weekend? Check other weekenders here.
