Bouncing up and down

เพิ่งรวบรวมความกล้า ติดต่อกับ EscRiBiTioNiSt® มา

Hooray #1: Agreed to exchange postcards.
Though, really, it didn’t seem to be fair for her to send one to me all the way here. Who knows the cost of the postage stamp? Anyone?
Hooray #2: Another Moleskine convert… ermm… admirer.
Last I checked, the price at Kinokuniya was nearly the same as in euro. So at least there won’t be a shortage when I finally go back :)

[Meme] Do You Like Pop Muuusic?

Never expected this… this… result. Urgh—
Not that I thought it’d be classical either, but this is like spending 2 minutes doing the quiz and then throwing a dice.

I’m seeing a trend here…

Three days of Googling and watching Top Gear and eyes riveted to Youtube’s little videos, I’ve gotten myself the second-ever crush on a celebrity.[1]

Let’s see the similarity with the first crush:

Random Musing

– Heard the news of Heath Ledger a while ago. Was like, o-kay, another Hollywood-er found dead with drugs prescription medicine. Belatedly, just knew that he acted as William Thatcher in The Knight’s Tale, one of my favourite movies. Is it too late to be sad now?

§ So I watched the film again today. Hmm … wonder if any literature critics also noted in Chaucer’s biography that he had a nice , um… physique.

§ IMDb is one of the sites that steal my time.

§ In fact, most non-academic sites does.

§ Ledger’s photos remind me of Tem-po, and Pitt’s of Dannie. If you guys are reading this, please don’t be offended or flattered. It’s just the weird wiring in my head.

§ Current TV-series interest: New Amsterdam. Is it like Forever Knight? The idea sounds hopelessly corny/romantic, though. Won’t be able to live until he finds “The One”? This in a homicidal-detective TV series?

§ Someone in a discussion board called the series Highlander 2.0. LOL

§ Don’t mind “The One”-thing now. For the swimming pool scene alone, I just have to watch it.

AHHHHHHH! (When Word 2007 Ate My Report)

The whole two most-productive days of report-writing/bullshit-typing. For. No-. Thing!
Where the heck is my saved file. Huh? HUH?!

My left pinkie and index were camping permanently on [Ctrl] and [S] for 10 hours a day for those last two days.
Even now they’re twitching. Twitching! To save something every five-fucking-minutes!

—- during the day —-
Me: §Work for 5 minutes§
Me: §Save§
MS Word 2007: §Saving the document …. Done!§

repeat {* … *} for hundreds of times

—- end of day —
Me: §Close the document and re-open§
MS Word 2007: §Proudly shows the report last saved seconds ago§
Me: §Save a duplicate as a new document just to be sure§
MS Word 2007: §Obediently complies§

— at home —-
Me: §Open the original report file§
MS Word 2007: §Shows a report last saved a week ago, minus twenty or so pages§
Me: §Stare blankly§ Huh?
Me: §Try to open the duplicate file§
Vista: §No such file found§
Me: §Desperately search for any file in the USB modified since last week§
Vista: §Shows a bunch of non-Word files§
Me: §Frantically try to open Most Recent Files from Word 2007§
MS Word 2007: §Encounters a serious problem§
Vista: “MS Word 2007 has stopped working” §cues white-out screen and evil laughters§
MS Word 2007: §Exits stage left. Or carried out in pieces on a stretcher, I don’t really fucking care§

—- now —
MS Word 2007: §ish ded§
Me: §ish also ded§

The punch line is:- Report deadline is on Monday.
Yes, that’s 48 hours from now.
