Paranoia 2: Attack of the Paranoids.

Just read the titles of my posts when I logged on to Blogger just now. I feel so lazy, because most of it are just quizzes! My goodness, this has become a "Get To Know Me Better Thru Quizzes" blog. Bah.

Re-read my latest entry ("Paranoia") and really, AM I PARANOID OR WHAT?!

Ok, just that I go thru "paranoia" phase every now and then when shit hits the fan. Or when shit is about to hit the fan. Whatever.

According to Dr. Hibert on The Simpsons (the episode when Homer ate fugu fish and got poisoned), people go through 5 stages when confronted with death or bad news.


Dr. H: Now, a little death anxiety is normal. You can expect to go through five stages. The first is denial.
Homer: No way! Because I'm not dying! [hugs Marge]
Dr. H: The second is anger.
Homer: Why you little! [steps towards Dr. H]
Dr. H: After that comes fear.
Homer: What's after fear? What's after fear? [cringes]
Dr. H: Bargaining.
Homer: Doc, you gotta get me out of this! I'll make it worth your while!
Dr. H: Finally, acceptance.
Homer: Well, we all gotta go sometime.
Dr. H: Mr. Simpson, your progress astounds me.

-- Homer learns he's going to die, "One Fish, Two Fish, Blowfish, Blue Fish"

Classic stuff. You have to watch this gem on tv.

You get the drift.

Right about now, I'm at Stage 3: Fear. Namely because I'm not making much progress on my thesis. And the results of my supplementary paper is not back yet. There was this freakin' earthquake 8.7 on the Richter this morning. Basically if I can (read: if I'm insane enough), I will shout "ARE WE GONNA DIE" at the top of my lungs at the nearest hilltop.

Oh I had a cold. It's semi-gone now but I have this cough, and once started, cannot be stopped for the next 10-15 minutes. I go into a coughing fit. It is embarassing because nothing beats coughing till your face go red and your hands are clutching your chest, hoping to make either the cough or your heart stop so this will ALL END.

Sometimes you wonder if this cough will develop into bronchitis, and whether you will be admitted to the A & E because of the embarassing cough. Once there will you be put on the waiting list till "further notice"? Don't tell me I'm exagerrating this because I once waited at the A & E for several hours because my abdominal pains were "TRIVIAL" enough and I could wait while the doctors and nurses were probably skiving or watching American Idol.

I don't know if they were watching tv... but I don't care. They made me waited for 4-5 hours before attending to me, and poked me 6 times to draw blood only to tell me in the end that a blood test was not necessary. @*#!)^$@%

OH MAN. This has nothing to do with paranoia, has it?! Once again, I've digressed so much I forgot what I intended to write about at the beginning of the post.

Good grief. Gotta get me on that ginkgo biloba supplement. Supposedly good for memory etc.


Overheard on the Montreal Comedy Festival...

"So.. If we're all God's children, then what's so special about Jesus?"

"Apparently I heard that the total amount of money a household spends on food for a week in London, is enough to feed an African one for 1 year. I feel that we've been overcharged for our groceries."

So very funny. =)


ok that was written before I slept. WHAT EARTHQUAKE?! Heard the news at 6.30am. Don't ask me why I'm up so bloody early.

"Mass evacuation in Indonesia, Thailand, Sri Lanka and Malaysia".

omg omg omg omg. I'm beginning to get a bit paranoid.

Selfish bastard.

What do you think of a person who asks his gf to travel for 1 hour to visit him when he fully well knows she's sick and running a high temperature? And in bad weather no less?

And he dared fucking said, "If I knew you wouldn't wanna visit me today, I wouldn't have visited you yesterday."

Selfish and inconsiderate shithead.

The OC quiz.


The Princess - Marissa

Which O.C. teen character stereotype are you?

oh wow. If only.

p.s. Nothing much to blog about today. Trying to make it up by taking a quiz.

Teen Vogue Quiz.

The IT Girl

Boys line up at your door for the chance to take you out. That's because you're such a fun—albeit expensive—date. You love to hit the town's hottest spots, from trendy new restaurants to classic movie theaters. And you seek the same mix of bold modernity and retro glamour in a great date look. Armani's graphic halter dress is the thing to be seen in while making the scene.



IT girl? Urm... alritey. Red polka dot dress? Urm.. so not me.

Better person.

20 Questions to being a Better Person

Your score as a human being is 74.45.

Middle of the road, eh? Does that mean you're yellow? Yellow as a salamander frying on blacktop? Yellow as a urinal cake? Yellow as a delicious marshmallow Peep? Mmmm. Peep. Sometimes I think if it weren't for Just Born candy, I would just expel my life force and expire. Hot Tamales. Mike and Ikes.

But I digress. Nicely done. You are robustly average, and I approve of it.


Better person alrite... I can try to type out less swear words in my blog/msn chats, would that make it better?

Anyway I've been trying to post something for ages (read: 3 continuous days) and the blasted thing just wouldn't get posted. Moreover Hello (the software to post pictures) has died a flaming death since it was unable to post pictures anymore.

What the flying fish is happening??!?

Okie now. Breathe in. Breathe out. Back to muggin'.

Over and out.

You scored as Satanism. Your beliefs most closely resemble those of Satanism! Before you scream, do a bit of research on it. To be a Satanist, you don't actually have to believe in Satan. Satanism generally focuses upon the spiritual advancement of the self, rather than upon submission to a deity or a set of moral codes. Do some research if you immediately think of the satanic cult stereotype. Your beliefs may also resemble those of earth-based religions such as paganism.



















Which religion is the right one for you? (new version)

Ok.. just got back from Uni after the supplementary paper, and maaaaaaaaaaaaaaan, it doesn't feel good.

Even though you've practised and practised your tutorials and past year papers, and even though you've made offerings (not including human sacrifice) to various gods and deities, the feeling "you just know you're not gonna make it" just sucks big time.

Especially if it concerns your graduation.

I'm suicidal and homicidal all at once. If God/other gods/deities decides to be kind and compassionate, He/She/It would let me pass this round. I would forever be grateful and be in His/Her/Its debt for all eternity. And by all eternity, I mean for the next 1 year or less.

"Dear God/other gods/deities,

I would very much like to pass this subject. If you should step in, you know, do your divine intervention thing, I would really be grateful. I would give up alcohol, PS2 and the dream of owning a PSP for a period of 6-10 months. Or less. Public holidays and weekends not included. Please do not overlook this. And should you decide to step in, please do so within the next 3-4 working days. My life + future is in your hands. Thank you. "


Hmmmmmmm... I'm so gonna get flamed for this. But I don't care lah.

School sucks big time. You hear that, Higher Being?! Step in and help la... Bassket.

Star Wars Episode 3.

Ok... All the Star Wars maniacs/fans out there, check out starwars.com and watch the lastest Episode 3 trailer. It looks very promising, and Anakin's stringy locks look like messed up Maggi mee. Nevertheless, May 19 is "choped". I'm not going anywhere but the nearest cinema near me.

AUD$10? So be it.

"The saga is now complete."

MMmmmmmmmmm..... Vader....


PSP in action. I would like to get meself one. Retail price: Approx. USD$250

Read about the newest launch a couple of days ago. I was busy preparing for my exam so I didn't have the chance to post the entry, exclaiming to the world how much I am in love with this nifty little gadget.

So many things are happening right now. And seriously, I'm not sure if I can handle it all at once and come out unscathed.

People say things. And the paranoid/skeptical me keeps reading into things like a psychologist, and most of the time I would be spot on. But now... too many things at once. I really don't know who's telling the truth, and who's just screwing with my head and hoping that I won't notice.


I am so confused and lost at this very moment. How I wish everything would just go away.

Tennis and Object of My Affection: Part 2.

Ok, I have semi-decided to take up tennis in Uni. It's $75 I think, and I hope it's not $75 per session cuz I would then have to rob a bank to finance my budding interest in sports. This would be silly cuz I would be arrested and would most probably spend my time behind bars, cursing myself for robbing the bank to finance something that I would most probably give up after 3 weeks.

Enough rambling..


Did I mention that I'm sooo looking forward to a Motorola Razr V3? No? Ok... I really want a Motorola V3.

The newest toy I want.

so sleek

Gawd I'm hyperventilating...

Would give hand and/or foot for the phone. Interested sponsors please email me with your credit card details as soon as possible. Potential naggers, please look away right now. I know you want to strangle me. I can see it in your eyes.

Objects of My Affection.

After such a frustrating post, I thought I should look at nice things and cheer up.

Rather nice looking.

Something to look at and cheer myself up. Now this is what I always wanted to get.

Tiffany & Co. never fails to cheer up any girl, do they?


My Uni is apparently screwing me over because of 2 marks.

My course director is currently away and I can't discuss important stuff with him. Meaning my enrolment will be screwed up because he's fuking away at the beginning of the semester and I'll miss the deadline.

My course is apparently demanding a 2000-3000 words report on my lousy shitass almost non-existent industrial attachment. Write what?!

My progress on my thesis is currently stagnant.

My close friend, belonging to the so-called 'soulmate' category, has sort of given up on me and refuses to give me advice.

I'm stuck with dialup when the rest of the world is using broadband.

I just want to burn something/abuse substance/homicidal at this very moment. Fuck it all. Not a good start. Not good at all.

Haven't been posting much and was going through some pictures on my notebook. Decided that maybe some pictures will be nice for a change. ;)

Went to the States earlier this year and took some pictures. Noticeable I'm hardly in any of the pictures I've taken because I'm really not a photo person. A little difficult for me to forcibly pose, smile and freeze for a few seconds till the picture is taken. I rather pictures to be taken when I'm unaware. Less pretentious and stuff. But anyway, enjoy.

The Eiffel Tower. Not the one in Paris, but the replica in Las Vegas. The amazing things that money can buy...

I was sitting at the LA airport waiting for my flight home. I thought to myself, "wouldn't it be amazing to take a picture of all the hustle and bustle at the airport?" I wanted to take more pictures of them but I was afraid that the paranoid security guards might arrest me for taking too many pictures. You know, terrorist and spies etc. Anyway, airplanes are something that I love. It makes me feel that it can bring me anywhere I want to go, as far as I want to go, and it can bring me home anytime. I love watching them at night when they light up. They are so beautiful.

A picture I've taken over the weekend. Hobart is a really peaceful and quiet place. The hotel I was at overlooks a small pier and I would really love to give it all up and sail around the world idyllically. And that's provided I'm hired onboard or I'm rich enough to live that kinda life. Cest la vie.

A picture I took with my brother. Had a chance to see him after he went to Melbourne for 3 months. See the 2 t-shirts he's wearing? It's freaking cold in Hobart.

Upon hearing that she loved the song during their midnight chat, he asked her to wait for a moment. Puzzled and curious, she waited. Out of the blue, she heard the piano. He was playing her favourite song just for her on the piano. Beautifully. At 3am in the morning.

"why did you play the song? it's so late! you'll wake everyone up!!"
"it's ok... as long as you are happy."
