Post 130...

I wanna be calm

I wanna start something special

I wanna go to New Zealand

I wanna tell you many things

But not now...I gotta wait, I'll be silent..its better..I gotta be silent

I wanna be calm.

Be safe, I'm goin home...where your love alone was enough for me.

I pray, and I shall remain.

Lighten my load :)
Twice the length of a normal road
He heaved a sigh of relief
when She believed
Climb the stairs to eternity
and you'll know what it means
When life in its entirety
Reaveals more than just dreams

Rumble tumble, twice the trouble
Worth it, it was
Dismiss the fables, you know
The crowd has gathered round the table
Put on the show
Just go with the flow
The curtains are up
Sober up, Pucker up
It's yours

And a lil sumthin I found on Yahoo - Enjoy!

Kids contemplate marriage.

How would you make your marriage work?
Tell your wife that she looks pretty, even if she looks like a truck.
Ricky, age 10

How can a stranger tell if two people are married?
You might have to guess, based on whether they seem to be yelling at the same kids.
Derrick, age 8

What do you think your mom and dad have in common?
Both don’t want any more kids.
Lori, age 8

What do most people do on a date?
Dates are for having fun, and people should use them to get to know each other. Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough.
Lynnette, age 8

On the first date, they just tell each other lies and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date.
Martin, age 10

What would you do on a first date that was turning sour?
I’d run home and play dead. The next day I would call all the newspapers and make sure they wrote about me in all the dead columns.
Craig, age 9

When is it okay to kiss someone?
When they’re rich.
Pam, age 7

Are all Pams the same??? :P

The law says you have to be eighteen, so I wouldn’t want to mess with that.
Curt, age 7

The rule goes like this: If you kiss someone, then you should marry them and have kids with them. It’s the right thing to do.
Howard, age 8

What is the right age to get married?
Twenty-three is the best age because you know the person FOREVER by then.
Camille, age 10

No age is good to get married at. You got to be a fool to get married.
Freddie, age 6

Is it better to be single or married?
I don’t know which is better, but I’ll tell you one thing. I’m never going to have sex with my wife. I don’t want to be all grossed out.
Theodore, age 8

It’s better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need someone to clean up after them.
Anita, age 9

How do you decide whom to marry?
You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like, if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep the chips and dip coming.
Alan, age 10

No person really decides before they grow up who they’re going to marry. God decides it all way before, and you get to find out later who you’re stuck with.
Kristen, age 10

Its nice to be back. It's nice to feel nice... to look around and take in a breath of fresh, crisp air.

This is truly the season to be jolly. But I am asking myself why I bother waiting for the season in order to perk up. Well, there is a reason for the season...true.. but I'm sure I can find sumthin to smile abt all year round :)

Bout 3 weeks back, I completed an essay on altruism and its (probable) selfish undertones.. lets juz say that my conclusion wasnt a crowd didnt please the Aussie markers for i guess there is sumthin that I left out in that essay..something along the lines of reciprocal altruism. Kind of an oxymoron I guess.. but I suppose it's precisely what makes some people tick.

There's this saying that goes "No good deed goes unpunished"'s disturbing to say the least. I truly hate that phrase for one simple reason - It's kinda true :s ... It speaks of how one can go about doing nice things but almost always ends up being the only one left standing when the shit hits the fan. Why does that keep happening? I dont know.. Karma? Prolly, if there's even such a thing..

But tdy, I was given a reason to believe (again) that its always worth all the troubles to be nice and keep at it... Goes sumthin like this - I wanted to get a certain gift and it was only sold at a chain of stores. Although they had many outlets, every single friggin store was out of stock for tt for two. So I called and called..and called..the two stores for abt 3 days..until finally, i got an ans from one outlet - like FINALLY. I tell you, I'm honestly tired of hearing tt stupid automated voice apologising profusely to me, telling me tt their operators were all engaged. After a while, it felt like I was seriously talking to some electrical component/ imagine having a serious, straightforward & lengthy conversation with your tv and you might get what I mean.
So yeah, they told me that they would reserve the item for me and I was soooo darn thankful to them for that. I remembered to be extra polite and thanked the manager no less than 732.43 times. Seriously. I counted. Not.

Then I rushed down to the store and reached there 15 mins before closing time and they actually recognised me by my voice! Kinda creepy but nvm.. so I asked for the manager and thanked the lady personally (yes i did it one more time...I was feeling VERY nice. So sue me) Well..i dunno..I guess they were pretty happy tt I gave them business juz before closing time..or maybe it was because i was an extra-nice customer..but they decided to pass me 2 different lucky draw coupons to fill in...I wasnt entitled to the 2nd one btw, but they juz slipped it to me and said "Nah, nvm, give you this also, juz fill up k? All the best". Ok, nothing much..considering it was juz a lucky draw. But the prizes are was for some hefty cash prize I think and the other was for a trip to the, by my standards.

I left once I was done filling up the coupons and started the long, arduous trek back to the mrt station. 15 mins later, I still wasnt at the station yet and, lo and behold, I realised that I had left the umbrella which I borrowed from my office, at the store...I know, dumbass. So yeah, did a 180 and rushed back to the store.. They were alr closed when I got there but the staff were still ard, thank God! I tapped on the glass like a hungry child outside a bakery and gestured to the umbrella and one of them promptly got up to get it for me...But on his way to the main entrance, I noticed tt he went to the back of the store to grab a small white box first..
I went over to the entrance and waited for him to open the gate...then as he passed me the umbrella, he handed me the box as well! I was a lil confused and asked him wat that was and he went "Oh its nothing, we just wanted you to have it la, thats all..take care ah.." So I thanked him AGAIN and went aside to see what was in the box...
Well guess what? It was nothin but a limited edition Singtel F1 Grand Prix watch :P Yeah..I was also like WT...
You see this company is pretty well known here and they were closely linked to the S'pore Grand Prix. So i guess it figures la.. heh :)

So there...I had a pretty good day, to say the least :D SO to everyone out there who is feeling tired and wants to give up...pls dont k? Hang in there..not because a reward is close at its cos its simply worth it. And if it makes ya feel better, what goes around, comes around :)

Not good.

So some random bits of info shall get the opportunity to get out of my mind and manifest themselves in the form of words.

(Somewhere in between)...

"So, I guess its right for me to say 'Welcome to the Club' huh?"

"Uhh... yeah, but im definitely not lookin forward to this"

"Not like you have a choice, son... Anyway, welcome to Sector C...The boys affectionately call it the dumpster.. Its somewhat of a dumping ground for the State..But the only kind of trash you find around here would be grade 'A' felons..the kind that even the supermax couldn't handle."


"It gets better...the reason they're beefing up security around here is cos the brains back at HQ have detected some form of anomaly...The people that they throw into Sector C were supposed to have a life expectancy of at least 15 years...given that there aren't any riots and stuff.
Thing is, their latest census showed that there are less than 50 felons interesting drop from 400, a couple of years back.. the new life expectancy is set at a sweet 1.5 years."

"Hmm...morbid. But as sadistic as this may sound, ain't that a good thing? As in, its givin us less work since they're wiping themselves out...and that really helps with the overcrowding situation right?"

"If only... U see son, the problem is, they're not wiping themselves out... there's something in there that's doing our job for us. And the corporate bigwigs that are running this messy detainment program are using this situation to put themselves in a good light. Call it corporate social responsibility...paradoxically, the onus is on us to turn things around, for them. They want us to go in and stop what's going on in there."

"Thanks..this totally makes my day...We have a bunch of hardened criminals who're falling like flies for no apparent reason and we have to go in with a couple of Tasers to find out why...Nice, I'm loving this job already. I mean, they're obviously pissed for being here and we're not exactly on their buddies list...they hate the sight of us man!"

"Look, you got enlisted, so deal with it. Besides, we're not exactly going in blind... intelligence passed us some useful info this morning"

"Really now... and what did they say?"

"Sector C used to be a medical research hub about a decade back. It was shut down in a very sudden manner back then and the area was earmarked for the development of correctional facilities..due to its remote location."

"Go on..I'm listening.."

"Yeah..and ever since the deaths started occurring, HQ has been poring through files and R&D notes from the time of the existence of the hub.. Apparently, the scientists were carrying out research on a new strain of the nipah virus and as u may have guessed, they went a bit too far... some of the geeks started looking into mutating certain strains of the virus for educational purposes...when in actual fact, they were nothing more than raving psychopaths with nothing more than destruction on their minds.. let's just say that their employers didnt know that they had radicals in their ranks.. You following so far?"

"I guess..this is getting screwed up.."

"There's nothing left to screw up son...The end end result of their covert experiments was a living, breathing version of the that had teeth and a foot-long body. It doesn't have limbs so it sort of looks like an overgrown maggot. It moves slowly along the ground, much like a worm does but, this one packs a couple of surprises.."

"And I'm guessing its not alike the ones on Christmas morning?"

"Got that has been doing research with samples collected by some of their drones over the last few months and the findings were..well, disturbing to say the least. These nipah worms can jump up to a height of about 2 meters...and they reproduce through spores that are contained in their breath and saliva. It's something like this: The person gets bitten, the spores are transmitted..the infected person soon succumbs to the disease with the larva growing within him...the larva soon hatches and..finds its way out, yeah. Bottom line is that, you shouldn't breathe in there or get bitten by one of these things. Capiche?"

"I Need a coffee..."

"I need a beer!..."

(Ends here...nothin more than nonsensical whims of my clouded mind)

I'll go forth in peace and handle each day with respect and pride. I'll enjoy life and seek the smiles that count for everything. Guess what happened doesnt really matter, It's what's GOING to happen that matters huh? Will do..will do. Although help would be much appreciated, its not something I can rely on solely, I know. Well, Thank God for everything and everyone.

Bad Day

Where is the moment we needed the most
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost
They tell me your blue skies fade to gray
They tell me your passion's gone away
And I don't need no carryin' on

You stand in the line just to hit a new low
You're faking a smile with the coffee you go
You tell me your life's been way off line
You're falling to pieces every time
And I don't need no carryin' on

Because you had a bad day
You're taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don't know
You tell me don't lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
The camera don't lie
You're coming back down and you really don't mind
You had a bad day
You had a bad day

Will you need a blue sky holiday?
The point is they laugh at what you say
And I don't need no carryin' on

You had a bad day
You're taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don't know
You tell me don't lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
The camera don't lie
You're coming back down and you really don't mind
You had a bad day

Sometimes the system goes on the blink
And the whole thing turns out wrong
You might not make it back and you know
That you could be well oh that strong
And I'm not wrong

So where is the passion when you need it the most
Oh you and I
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost

Cause you had a bad day
You're taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don't know
You tell me don't lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
You've seen what you like
And how does it feel for one more time
You had a bad day

Peace, Out

- I May Have -
