How come... I’m always asked for directions when I’m going to/coming back from class?
How come... My Kazaa Lite downloads are always so bloody slow?
How come... Nobody’s ever on ICQ when it’s 7.30pm?
How come... There’s always a bloody long queue at the college’s registry, and I always have to wait until I swear my ears are going to fall off?
How come... The college’s computer labs’ PCs are so bloody slow?
How come... I suddenly feel so tired of life?
How come... I can’t think of anything to how-come anymore?
How come... how come… aahhh, bugger’it, enough’s enough.

Bloody Buggered! The LAN was suddenly crashing down on me sometimes during the afternoon as I was trying to make new changes to the blog (Check out the 'donate-for-free buttons on the sidebar, and sign my guestbook will ya?), which got me jumping about and cursing madly at the server. Unfortunately there was nothing I could do since my expertise is not within network administration, and forced intrusions (more like “hack“, hehe) into the server to tweak the bloody settings won’t work either. Sigh… well, as I said, nothing I could do, so no internet throughout the evening and night… bugger’it. Well, at least I could finally allocate time to watch American Pie 2. And yup… just the perfect movie for us males currently overdosed with raging testosterones at this age. :)

Anyway even when we got the DSL line back on… surfing was practically like “crawling“ across the Internet… pages won’t load, ICQ won’t connect, and e-mail just refuse to be downloaded. Argh! Well anyway after much gritting of teeth, hair loss due to frantic pulling and colourful usage of language, we’ve finally discovered that TMnet actually is having some kinda connection problems with connections to US servers, and maintenance is still under way. Anyway read the story here, or check out the latest internet traffic reports here. Well, we’re crossing our fingers and hoping that all those construction out there will speed up a bit so we can get back to the ol’ speedy surfin’ way of life.

Cindy asked me why the heck is my blog full of negative reports. Well, that’s the exact representation of my life. Ain’t I patethic? sigh :)

Buggered. 3am in the morning and i still can’t get any bloody sleep, so eventually got up to get some blogging done. Still… got class at 10am tomorrow morning. Perhaps I’m suffering from the same problems as tRIPpERzzZ? Maybe in addition to gingko I should also start intoxicating my bodily systems with doses of sleeping pills too.

Anyway, gaaaaahh! I’m broke! Just as I was prepared to fork out some moolah from my wallet to get moi grubby paws on a fresh copy of Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven, I found out that my usually rich cash deposits have been reduced to a measly 6 dollars. Well, there’s the ATM anyway, duh, thought I, as I rummaged through the dark pockets of my wallet to dig out my Maybank ATM card, then… Horrors!!! Where in the name of Hell is my card! Breaking out in cold sweat I emptied out all the various contents that’ve been dwelling in the comfy crevices of my wallet, thus uncovering a Pizza Hut discount voucher (which I had been looking for all these days, dang...), dozens of shopping receipts and bills, and other crap. But, still, no ATM card. Gaaah! I lost it!! How the heck am I supposed to live on 6 bucks for the next coupla days before I eventually die of a grisly hungry death? Geez! Sigh… looks like I have to go down and dirty to the bank myself when I got time after lectures… Grrr…

Anyway tonight Alice called for the fourth time in two days. I succumbed. And chatted with her. What a nice night it was. :)

While muttering six-letter swear (“Bloody bloody bloody lag…”)words to myself as i sullenly type on my keyboard to update my blog and if you noticed, added more cool content to the sidebar (see, well, sidebar, duh), I just remembered that Alice called me three times yesterday on my HP, which I unceremoniously ignored and left it to ring until she hung up. Am feeling sorta bad bout it though… But really didn’t feel like speaking to her… :p
