Spent the entire day shopping for things to put in the new house. Ooooh! How boring was that? Bummed around for about two hours at a tile store while my mum looked at mirrors. The first hour was alright, spent most of it admiring myself.
I had a very deep political thought this morning that I had planned on putting up on the blog. Problem is, I don’t really care about elaborating about it anymore. Damn. There goes my chance on making this blog a meaningful, deep and intellectually challenging place for conversation. Oh well.
Back home in Malaysia, I’ve taken to reading the newspapers again: News Straits Times and The Star. I have forgotten how much fun it is to ridicule the newspapers. Not being biased towards NST, but The Star has got to be the most pretentious newspaper, next to the Sunday Times magazine, and next to the Times of India.
You can’t really hate pretentious newspapers like the Star. You can only read them and laugh.
But there’s a danger on calling people pretentious. The moment you call someone else pretentious, you open yourself up to the possibility of you being pretentious. It’s a vicious cycle.
Am currently chatting with Sayaka. She’s studying for her exams now and she’s doing the most hardcore subjects: Cell bio, organic chemistry, psychology and statistics. Phew! Hope she does well!
I’m going to make myself a cup of coffee now and watch a bit of tv. I’m quite tired, been out the entire day, on my feet shopping for household products. Bleargh. But before I go, I shall leave you with a thought (courtesy of my brother again):
Dyslexics of the world: UNTIE!!
