Life never fails to amaze me. My handphone battery has survived 96 hours without charging and has shown no signs of going so yet.
Didja know that Elijah Wood, that baby-faced handsome male model that played Legolas in Lord of The Rings, actually starred in Black Hawk Down? No kidding! You wouldn’t notice his existance in the movie even if i told you this, with every single American private having the same looking shaven head, grimy rough face and not to mention almost the same damned face! Have you guessed it? You know there’s this Todd Blackburn in the movie, the very unfortunate greenhorn private, which, you can put it in this very cruel and cynicist kinda way, probably played a role in which became one of the many factors which, started the goddamn war in Somalia! (According to the very self-righteous America-Rulez kind of view movie, that is)
Anyway am in good mood today. Perhaps it’s the bright sunny weather out there and the nice clear opaz skies… Or maybe as Zen practitioners would say, I’m having a nice purple aura radiating around my head like a halo. In fact bought two packets of chips and passed it around the bookshop today for my collegues to chow down on. Yes, am feelin like a winner today!!!
I forgot to mention why I wasn’t working today. Well, I was fired.
NOT! Actually all the schools in the city are having this jogathon thingy, so (thank god) I’m excused from work for the day. Yippeee!
Anyway am currently working to expand my website. Might move it to www.geocites.com/zanglang later. Meanwhile stay tuned!
Didn’t update my blog last night coz I was doing some seriously heavy reading on Stephen King’s “Stand“. Perhaps I have a few nuts loose up there in my think-box… who else would be crazy enough to read non-stop from 8pm to 1am in the morning, only pausing a while to take a bath, have a drink and take a leak? Gosh… 300+ pages within 5 hours. If you ask me, that’s considerably slow for a speed-reader like me.
Am going to take 2nd driving lesson today either in the morning or early afternoon. Wish me luck.
Just read a book that says, some guy called Robert. G. Allen. wrote in his book “The Long and Short of It”, that “For insects, the tempo of life, not the passage of time, determines how long they live.” It means that, for bugs, the slower their tempo (speed or 'rentakan’) in the ways of living the longer they will live.Lazy bugs who hardly move around live longer than bees, who spend all day collecting honey and stuff…. Get it? If you put a roach in a large cage, it’ll run around looking for out non-stop, and so probably can last 15 days. Put it in a 30cmx30cm space maybe a month. Put it in a 2cmX2cm confinement and stuff 'em in the freezer and it’ll last 3 months. Interesting stuff. I wonder if it applies to humans… Maybe if I take life easily and lazily I’ll live 130! :)
Am feeling a bit sick recently for no apparent reason at all. Slight dizzy spells, headache, tiredness and fast heartbeat. Maybe it’s the stress. Anyway am looking forward to the vacation trip to Desaru a bit later next month.
