Attended one of those road safety courses today. And damned is it boring. If it wasn¡¦t compulsory for those who wanted to apply for a driving licence I wouldn¡¦t even bother paying 80 bucks for it. (And for God¡¦s sake, ain¡¦t it expensive!) Just imagine 50-something bored tired teenagers staring absent-mindedly at a boring rambling lecturer who keeps cracking boring jokes and eventually tries to cram everything about road safety into our minds. Sheesh. But on second thought, it¡¦s one step closer to getting my gruby paws on a brand new driving licence, which entitles me to drive my dad¡¦s car, wherever I want! Now that¡¦s kewl!
Just watched “The Others” featuring Nichole Kidman. And yep, ain’t it a great movie! Great acting, great script, great plot, great twist, not to mention great spooks too! Too bad it wasn’t actually scary enough. The only times that actually jolted me out of my seat was the opening sequence and the ending part. Nice. And for God’s sake, only after 2 hours, you’ll realized,“What the…! I’m misleaded by this movie!” What a superb twist! And yeah, to all those people who haven’t seen the movie, what the heck you’re waiting for? Oh and meanwhile, (Spoiler Alert!) “I see live people…” Go figure yourself :)
I thereby declare today as “What The Heck Is All This Hype About“ day. Just bought a computer mag today and innit was this Spiderman movie calendar. You know, that one that’s going to premiere by May this year. And on it’s cover was Spiderman with, for God’s sake, the ugliest looking costume i’ve ever seen. I mean, heck, 3D cables woven all over the skintight suit? What the heck were the producers thinking??
Also managed to get hold for the first time a McDonald’s Oreo McFlurry! And it was… confusion at first bite. For god’s sake, Oliver, what in the name of heck gave you such a idea that such a ridiculous product can be heavenly? Sheesh, i mean, ain’t it just sickeningly-sweet vanilla flavoured ice cream with cookie crumbs in it? Nothing really special about it, that’s what i say.
total hours wasted on waiting for people, events, etc. : approx. 38088 seconds
I can’t believe how much time I’ve wasted on waiting for people today! If time was money I’d probably be bankrupt! Is quite a good thing though that I’m still young, still got plenty of time, can still afford to use time on needless stuff, blah blah blah? You know, that kind of talk people tell you. Hah. I shall now list the various tasks I’ve been wasting time on now. Firstly, in the morning there was that bus ride to work : 15 minutes. Then I find myself reaching the workplace too early and have to wait for somebody to open the shop. Great, there goes 1 hour. Another 1 hour was used up waiting for somebody to actually give me instructions so I can find something to do. Ok, then there’s 4 work hours, which I considered wasted for I hardly felt like I’m doing anything really important and instead just sort of hung around feeling bored. Then there was the 1 1/2 hours waiting for more instructions again from the admins, and another for completing the task. 1/2 hour taken to walk to the bus station, 1 1/2hours on a bus (which made my backside numb and my legs sore due to the lack of blood circulation), and 1/3 hour waitng for my dad to pick me up (actually I could have taken a bus home, but heck, why waste money when someone else would pay for the petrol and not to mention the effort?). Ah well. Perhaps I really should consider the 1 more hour I spend on using my PC and typing this weblog too. Hmm?
Just checked my mobile phone credit account and realised that I’ve actually used up one third of my prepaid credit within, uh, 9 days, when it was supposed to last 60! Gasp! Horrors! I really need to cut down on SMS-ing friends and making irrelevant calls now, for God’s sake, or else my cash reserves would probably dry up before I got my salary and monthly allowance. Sheesh.
Ah well… days like this really makes you wonder what the heck life is all about. Things seem to rush by in a blur today like some kind of cyclist you see on the sidewalks. It’s just, “Oh Hi.” then without nothing much of a smirk and a wave, “Bye.” Absolutely boring. Not to mention during this season of the year which the rain almost seems to fall non-stop throughout the afternoon. That sort of enhances the boredom and despairity and also the gloomy mood. On the way to work i remembered this article about a Disney movie in the 80s. First they show you a close-up of a nice tulip, oh-so-beautiful and graceful as it sways and rustles in the wind, untill suddenly the view pans up and zoom out untill you see a wide field full of these flowers. Sorts of gives you a sensory overload. It’s really the same in life… just think about it. Say, you’re in a mall, just you standing in the middle of the basement floor hall. Then look around you. You’ll see dozens and dozens of other Earthling going about their own business, right? See, it’s not just you who exists in this world. To put it in a more pessimistic way, you just one of the 6 billion humans on Earth, so nobody really gives much of a damn to you, whatever you do or happens to you is just YOUR own business, not theirs. They’ve got their own humanly stuff to bother about. Sheesh….the things you can actually think when you’ve got nothing better to do.
