    Shoot the Wall (A.K.A. The Rant Thread)

    A car that has been painted red in color, with smooth shellac shinning look, that reminds me of the tale when my grandmother was seventeen and was offered a ride by my grandpa (insert grandma origin story), and finally brings me to the story of how we obtain shellac from female lac bug, found in India and Thailand, that formally known as Siam... (insert story about Thailand).. Back then I used to fatten my assignment with examples, and the words would add up sometimes way too much. Anyway, I think my neighbor is addicted to having construction. Before they moved in probably less than two years ago, the house was put in renovation for ONE YEAR. ONE EFFING YEAR. Imagine the strangers, the noise, the dust, the building materials that got in our way. There were only three houses occupied from ten back then, and I remember my pregnant next door neighbor (husband was away oversea) was frightened by the way the workers looked at her, that she waited for me to come back from work one day and I had to give her my phone number to contact just in case. The workers were alright, they were just, liked to stare for a long time. But having them knowing your daily schedule and how many occupants in the house (after a while any idiots can see) was of course, not preferable. So, after it was done, the family moved in, and along the way, there were tinkering here and there, but then starting last month, they are doing major renovation again. What for? To freaking switching the carport. So the width of the house is perfectly nice to occupy two cars. They have their access and car porch on the left side of the house, now they want to switch it to the right. That means hacking of walls, fence, column apparently, planter box, porch roof and landscape (where plants have been growing nicely), floor just to switch the side for the car. I mean, good god!!! I waited for years to finally done the floor of one of the room that had been eaten by termites, I waited for month to fix the finish of my exterior wall that had been coming down (literally), and there are still tons of things needed to be done, and these people, purposely waste time and money for this? Grrrr.. okay, that is their problem. But with construction, the set of problem that comes with it reappears. And now with added touch; their family car, that has to be parked outside in the narrow-just nice communal street, and their house is opposite mine. So now, everytime I drive I have to be wary about maneuvering.

    I wonder how many potential roommate came and then ran away screaming. Billy the skull is probably the first test.

    Avoided watching it, because I thought I wouldn't like it. Of course I know it'd be more on the slow side, but I don't actually mind it and like good slow burning. However, I worry about it being too romanticized and dramatized out of not much story. Or, it would be overly patriotic with political message because of the space race. So I didn't. If they made a movie about Laika the dog, the first dog to go space, picked from street and expected to die, suffered since she was chosen, as much as I want everyone to know about her existence, I'd probably wouldn't go too, cos I would bawl my eyes out.

    You are right, the blind is the same. I thought so too but can't seem to pinpoint the exact second, seems like different angle somehow. But I know this one!

    Actually I found talents in sport after puberty, and I think I have generous..eh.. those. But that was good time, the younger days, now I think there is a risk of pulling a muscle by just sitting on the toilet. Anyway, no good movie out there so I stayed at home rewatching Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind (I'd give it a 9/10), somehow I didn't have memory of the details and how it ended, watching it with full concentration this time, and, this is the type of rom-com (if it's a rom com) that I like and appreciate. I like how they tell the story, how they unravel layer and layer of them, how each characters and storyline are developed, how f-up some of the things they actually are and how believable everything is (despite the piece of advanced technology). Which one is more painful, erasing or being erased? Or driven to the need to do so? It's really sad though, I think. Many aspects of it, the characters and their life choices and struggles, the realism and pain of relationship. This is probably the only Jim Carrey's role that I really like, and how could I forget that Mark Ruffalo was in here as well.

    Introverts, how is your day?

    I just have to point out about how selfless I am and how selfish you are. I used Shazam apps for that, and it works well, but uninstalled it because I didn't need it often and it takes too much space in my old phone.

    Regular chocolate chip cookie is good too, but I like to change the chocolate chip into cheese chunk. My 'problem' is I like to bake, but I don't have regular consumer (my dog lovessss everything I bake but I don't let him eat those too much), and wouldn't be able to eat myself. Bringing to office would be like opening Pandora box because I'm working with group of boys who are always hungry and it's not wise to give them the idea that I bake. Uhm, I believe this is real. What would you do if you are in the situation where you could save people but taking the risk of burning to death??? I'm not a great person, don't think I'd let myself being cuffed that way, I'd probably try to warn them physically as much as I could, that's all.

    Shoot the Wall (A.K.A. The Rant Thread)

    I would love to see my little doggie playing trampoline ! No, none of that. It's usually quiet, the most quiet time of the night. Used to creep me out, but I have learned to live with it. It doesn't happen often, but often enough that I recognize the pattern. There could a be a Smaug below my house foundation, but that would mean he follows me around since it happened in different places, even country. I went for a three hour beach walk with my doggie and we went through stretch of beach we had never gone before, and encounter a group of friendly dogs that grew exponentially in number around us. It was great time, but I accused every each of them of smelling like poop before realizing that I was the one who stepped on that nasty shit.

    Yup, I checked, mobile version is not complete. Now in my new phone, the desktop version works. However, today is the day when loading image doesn't work at all. Hmppppphhh (even from imgur which I miraculously able to access today).

    Shoot the Wall (A.K.A. The Rant Thread)

    It's basically an episode when your mind is awake but not your body. Apparently see, feel something that is not there and hallucinating is not uncommon, so does choking. Anyway, after knowing those, I probably experienced it again but I'd just brush it off. The other weird thing I experience quite often is shaking bed, and normally I'd be awake. Originally I thought they are dreamw, but gradually I was half awake (and felt it) and fully awake (and felt it). Since I can't explain it (not earthquake), I have learned to ignore it. Did you ask whether it's a subtext before you slap yourself in the face?

    Hey!!! But, but, but, that is so unfair!!! I remember someone told me wet market is called that way because the condition of the flooring back then. Sometimes it's just make-shift market without proper flooring material and the produces that vendors brought in (especially sea food) "flood" the floor and you have to walk between puddles. Anyway, the first time I heard "flea market" I really really didn't want to go.

    Oh I see it I see it! In my desktop version, I suspect I didn't see the complete set in my mobile version, just like back then when I couldn't find the 'remove format' when I was really really sure I used it before.
