iTunes’ party shuf­fle is play­ing a copy of: I Can’t Wait — John Hiatt — Walk On, of which I have the orig­i­nal CD and there­fore didn’t steal music.

You go on a trip think­ing it will recharge your bat­ter­ies, and that you’ll come back refreshed and ready for work. No lor. I am crabby as hell. I’ve not fig­ured out which is the right side of the bed to wake up on in the last three days, and judg­ing by the way things are, I’m not likely to be as chirpy as a Val­u­air cabin crew mem­ber any time soon.

Unfor­tu­nately, the num­ber of pro­fan­i­ties I’ve been churn­ing out in long sen­tences has increased dra­mat­i­cally as well. Espe­cially when dri­ving. Just now, I honked at a taxi and cursed him and three gen­er­a­tions of his descen­dants, that they’d fuck­ing end up fuck­ing dri­ving fuck­ing taxis for the fuck­ing rest of their fuck­ing lives. [Trans­lated and para­phrased from the Hokkien/Cantonese by Mr Miyagi’s long-suffering muse/secretary]. By the time I fin­ished the rant, I had dri­ven from Orchard Boule­vard to Hol­land Vil­lage, where another taxi cut into my lane and caused me to brake hard and curse long again.

Feel­ing just as crabby was my friend whose pile of uni­ver­sity assess­ment mark­ings was finally top­pling over. She sent me an SMS ask­ing if I knew what one stu­dent meant by a ‘split­ter­ing [sic] and dras­tic sound’. I replied, pronto, ‘that is the sound your grand­mother makes when she falls down the stairs’.

    Just saw the Get Rea! episode on blog­ging (we get CNA here in HK but with a dif­fer­ent pro­gramme schedule).

    Not allud­ing to you or the other blog­gers fea­tured, but I thought it was one of the most bor­ing episodes ever … They try to make a “60 Min­utes” story out of the most mun­dane topics …

    It was bor­ing. I’ve never watched Get Rea! till now, actu­ally, and after this one, I’ll prob­a­bly not watch another.
