As I am on holiday, I am no doubt around my grandmother 24-7 which is suffocating. Suffocation is one thing, annoyance is another while the main topic of today's post is how she talks in the phone with acquaintances of hers.
Let it be known that we have never bought gas from this guy before because we used to buy from aunt number 1 because it is cheaper. The gas man however, does know my grandmother and my deceased grandfather because they used to walk down to the foot of the hill to buy things from his shop - that as also about 5-6 years ago. Since the passing of my grandfather, she has been alternating between my houses in KL and my hometown.
The followin took place yesterday over the phone
GM : Hello, Beng (name of gas man)? It's me. Can you bring some gas over to my house?
GM : Yes, my house... I need the 14kg gas. How much is it?
GM : 25 ah? Okay okay. Can you bring it over now?
GM : Okay. Aiyo, have you forgotten about me? It's beside Ang's house.
GM : Ang the taxi driver...
GM : Yes, near Ang the taxi driver, number 59. Remember to bring you know. I'll be waiting.
A few hours later, she wants to go out but the gas isn't here yet.
GM : Hello, Beng? Where is my gas?
GM : It's me! I called you a few hours ago, where's my gas?
GM : I'm staying near Ang the taxi driver!
GM : It's okay. It's late and I want to go out.Bring it tomorrow.
GM : It's too early, I will still be out marketing. About 11 is okay.
All through her conversations.. I was thinking, who the hell are you to him for remember you just by your voice. I'm pretty sure as a trader, he has a lot of customers and he won't remember you. OMG!

A proximately a week ago, I received the package Katrina
sent me!! It contained 2 comics and a few treats!!
I finished almost all the treats except one plum candy (the pink round ones). I should go see if I can get it from Shojikiya. I don't know why but I get hooked onto sweets quite easily. As a result, my teeth are in a worse condition than my youngest brother's whom doesn't practice oral hygiene (sucks huh?).
I didn't manage to get the high paid 3 day job at the PC fair this weekend =(
Guess I'll be finishing my Christmas cards this weekend.

I just realised something very ridiculously screwed about my university. I mean I donít know if it is supposed to be like some kind of a security feature or what but to access to past year examination papers from the library website, you have to be in the campus before that page loads. Does this happen to you?
For the first time I was a driver to someone other than my family member! I did drop my classmates off at certain places and their house once but this is really like being a driver and it was fun! It totally gave me the privilege to be the first to meet her new beau. Heís cute, fair and ahahaha! Iím not gonna finish that sentence in case some people reading this have some thoughts of their own. I DONíT CARE WHAT YOU INTERPRET THAT AS but I donít date my friendsí exes! Anyway... no pictures in case she kills me because I still want to be her friend for a long time. Sheís one of the few whoís been there for a long time and I would like it to be a long time more to come. I hope this will be her happy ending, she deserves that much.... and that totally ends our bet that she is the first to get married! LOL!
Iím very behind schedule in my studies but I donít really mind. I think I can finish it tonight. It doesnít matter, I have enough Starbucks in my system to do an all-nighter. Okay, toodles!!

The game is Guess "what Xboyz
just did". I'll give you 100PPS if you can guess it correctly. There is no time limit to this.
1. a very STUPID thing to do
2. a very IMMATURE thing to do
3. a VERY LAME thing to do
4. I lost A LOT of information in the process
5. I am RUSHING to finish an assignment
6. You cannot imagine how ticked off I am right now and I so want to blog about this because I obviously can't recover any of the information I lost by shouting at him nor can I hit him.
Mr I-think-I-am-so-awesome is not going to get away with this.
Edit: Ikimashokie got it right! He unplugged my laptop! You know the adapter thing which connects to your computer and the plug? He unplugged that one. Guess what he told me after that? "Teach you a lesson to save your work". Yea, there is no autosave in the program I was using and would you be saving your work when you're in the middle of typing out your train of thought before your forget it?

I "received" the following memo 5 minutes ago:
The Nut will not be online for the next 4-5 days as it does not have an internet connection. It is currently typing from the campus computer, which explains the lack of content.
It actually have a couple of pictures to put up but was not able to do so due to the issue which will cause it to be unavailable to the virtual world for the next few days.
Er.. The Nut would like you to know that it will till be available on its mobile. It hopes that the lack of internet will make it finish all its assignments.
P/S: Darned server blocked FB!

Iím done with The Messenger
by Marcus Zusak. The book is okay... nothing which compels you to finish reading it within a day. A good book if you would like to only read when you feel like reading. It really is a messenger. It made me realise that the closer to home something is, the harder it is for us to do and that we takes things around us for granted. It is always easier to do things for a perfect stranger for no reason than to do things for someone close to us without it. The closer you are to the person, the harder it is for you to do anything that you think will hurt them, the more oblivious you are to them.
But the most important message of all is that we actually force ourselves to do something, no matter how hard, no matter how impossible it seem, weíll be able to do it because weíll figure things out in the process of trying to get it done. If someone whoís considered as a loser can do simple things to make the world a better place for someone else, why canít we?
My next book is Merde Actually
by Stephen Clarke. Yes, my Merde series is back!! I canít wait to learn more French phrases. Voulez-vouz cafe avec moi?
I finished reading Merde Actually
and it is hilarious. It gave me some insights to how certain things work and how sometimes you must give someone a chance to prove themselves, again. You also find out certain things about certain places in France, like the nudist beach in Arse. Yes, you read it correctly, it is also pronounced that way too (according to the author), ďarseĒ.
Btw, there are 3 seahorses in the 2nd picture in my previous post.. see if you can spot them! ;D
