what's your mode of transport?
mine is the sun.
when it rises dripping from
the sea when it falls like honey on
the trees when it swallows up
clouds my soul moves with it.
mine is you.
i like fridays, rainy days, proud cats, black & white photographs, children's books, short stories and movies that most people would never see. Music serves me justice on sad days (Adele, The Kooks, Mumford & Sons are gems) and genuine smiles are a must-have.
oi! i'm talking here! so shut up and listen!

who ever knew that blog-surfing could be so fun? i mean, not that i enjoy reading people's private lives (ok. so i lied. thoroughly enjoyed it. seriously, what's the point of setting up a blog anyway if you're just not gonna let anyone know about your life, your dog's name, your type of fishbowl/shoe/mokeys/etc huh?), but i think that it's just really interesting that there are so many different styles of writing, that i hardly know where to begin. Not that i didn't learn anything from the exercise.
Well, according to my research in this past hour or so, i've learnt that:
Lesson 1: Background music gets really distracting when you're trying to read. i shall try to refrain from that. But if really really REALLY great music comes along, i will, without hesitation, ignore lesson 1.
Lesson 2: Verbal assaults of other people online is a real turn-off. in my opinion, normal complaining is fine but when it results in a long entry full of abusive language and use of words that would make me rather commit the sin of murdering 300 people rather than say these words out loud, than that's really something. i will complain but i vow not to use swear words other than the occasional darn or the word with similar meaning as fertiliser.
Lesson 3: Posting tasteful pictures is good. keep readers interested. bear in mind. i said tasteful.
Lesson 4: Keep the use of short forms to the minimum. Gets irritating when pple kp usg s.f. all e tm.
Lesson 5: Do not litter your blog with all sorts of nonsense flying to and fro. Hello. People are trying to read. Unless of course you don't want to people to read. Then don't keep a blog. Keep a locked book where you can pen down thoughts and stuff in private. The book, by the way, is called a diary. Go watch Bridget Jones if you're still clueless. Honestly.
being mean at the moment.
end of lessons.
right then. i knew watching Bride And Prejudice would have an effect on me. i finally paid my mounting library fines and with a gaping hole in my pocket, i went on to borrow Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice among other things. at least this time, i didn't fall asleep halfway through the book because i knew what was going on beyond all that fancy language.
(see mama. watching movies isn't such a bad thing after all.)
read three books in the last two days. not bad at all. too bad the last two was crap though. if only someone can point out to me a romance novel that doesn't have a terrible/lousy/ridiculous ending or does not have an inkling of a sex scene, i'll be happy. and eternally grateful.
practised only 7 major chords on the guitar today: A, B, B#, C, D, E, F.
gave up practising when my last four fingers on my left hand hurt. which didn't take very long. about 15 minutes more than my yesterday's 5. an achievement on my part. although, i have this sinking feeling that my strumming's not correct. you're speaking to a tone-deaf person here. can't really tell the difference between a C and an E, other than of course that they are entirely different letters.
i need help.
tomorrow i'm going to my uncle's company's Family Day with my family (duh). i'm sure that it's gonna be pretty eventful considering that my cousins are gonna be there.
gee. i can't wait.
give me credit here. i was trying to be enthusiastic about the outing. well. sort of.
current music on repeat mode: Try by nelly furtado.
current book reading: TwiSted by David Robins
(it was originally a movie. )
(ok, so what if i have a thing with movies and books? that's my problem. not yours.)
oh. i really think that my butt is getting bigger. i'll go get the measuring tape.
