amaybechild: So I’ve just got back from Uni today, and I went over to visit my Grandparents. My mum tells me to ask my Aunt about what had happened to her a few days before so I do.. She’d been up in London with a friend and as they were heading back to the station they decided to get a drink. They start walking towards festival hall and notice this massive crowd of people and decide to go over...
O Lord, Bless This House of Madness
Karen: "I'll be home before dinner. Could you please check with Bibi that my dress is ready for tomorrow's gig?"
Me: "Lovely, we're having bacon pork chops for dinner, don't be late. And relax, it's only a concert. Whatever you find on the top shelf of your closet is okay."
Bree: "It's not just a concert. It's NKOTB and BSB concert. And you don't just wear whatever you find on the top shelf of your closet. You wear something decent."
Me: "I know what concert it is, I'm the same age as you guys. They're practically my whole adolescence years in a nutshell."
Karen: "Then show some respect, woman!'
Me: "I guess I can wear a skirt."
Bree: "Skirts don't always make... Alright alright, a skirt is an improvement nonetheless."
Me: "Yes. See you in a bit. Don't forget to stop by the pet shop!"
Bree: "Who are you talking to? I'm nowhere near a pet shop."
Karen: "She's talking to you."
Me: "I'm talking to you."
Bree: "I'm nowhere near a pet shop!"
Me: "We heard you the first time. We are just ignoring you now."
Bree: "I hate you!"
Karen: "Keep telling yourself that."
Detective Stories Made My Childhood a Happy One
Someone mentioned Enid Blyton’s Fatty on Twitter and I just freaked out. I remember reading them and my mum had to figure out a creative way (sometimes she used a pretty violent force) to make me stop reading and do my chores. Fatty or Frederic in the Five Find-outers is one hell of a master of disguise and a freaking linguist. I also read STOP, the one with Sporty, Thomas, Oscar and...
Don't Judge a Book by Its Movie
‘Great Gatsby’, ‘On the Road’ Resurrect Old Debate: Do Good Books Make Bad Movies? The first official trailer for the movie adaptation of classic F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gatsby” hit the Internet last week. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby, Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan and Tobey Maguire as naive narrator Nick Carraway, the trailer...

Scandal Over Stomach
I think I’ve just found something else to keep me stimulated. It’s ABC’S first season of Scandal. It’s looking good so far. I just watched a couple of episodes and it surprisingly managed to keep me in my seat while my stomach was vehemently hinting that a visit to the ladies room would really be a great idea.
Summing up my Friday
1. Got mind-boggled at how a person could ever mistake ‘emphasising on’ for ‘wearing’. That’s fashion-related stuff for you. Confusing, in every sense of the word. 2. Listened to only one song for nearly three hours. You should try and listen to Bob Lind’s Cool Summer yourself and you’ll see why. 3. Got a package of my first on-line purchase this year...
Back to the 90s
I wasn’t really looking forward to this day ever since I’d got an invite to the cocktail party. It’s always the usual stuff that repels me. If your relationship with the hosts is mere acquaintance, expect to be forced and participate in this stupid game called “Guess What Race I Am”. If the hosts are under the impression that you are friends, anticipate a more...

Meet My New Found Hero
His name is Ryan Gosling. No, no no. I’m not a fan of his on-screen performances and no matter how well-built his body is, it’s not the reason he is now my object of adoration. It’s what he has done. Not to me, obviously. But it certainly affects me in some way. Okay, in a way where I can say that my faith in humanity is slowly being restored. If you happen to be a male, you...
It’s the birthday of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and imagine the disappointment when I found out Google Doodle paid no respect to said legend. I was actually looking forward to this day I could barely sleep last night. Anyway, in honour of the greatest suspense author of all time, let me tell you a little secret. Let’s talk about BBC Sherlock. Ha! I can see your ‘not again’...

Because ideas are bulletproof...
I got home a little late today because I decided to walk all the way from work, again. I hadn’t done that for quite some time. Anyway, I found the girls there sitting nicely in the living room. “Ah, just in time,” Karen said. In time for what? “We’re watching V for Vendetta. Karen’s idea,” Bree answered my not-yet-verbalised question. Scary how girls can...

Just Me Minding My Own Business
Here’s something I’ve been thinking a lot. I have serious, major personality defects. Some of said defects are as follows. 1. I hate this city so much 2. I don’t get involved with people much 3. I’m obsessed with Benedict Cumberbatch and very vocal about it After a few hours of personal introspection (that’s the nicest phrase I can think of to describe a selfish way of looking at things),...
You get to keep the names if it’s an adaptation. But if it’s a homage, CHANGE THE BLOODY NAMES!
Not yet, My Darling Bree
Bree: "You awake?"
Me: [grinning] "Yeah..."
Bree: "You seen the Elementary preview?"
Me: [laughing] "You sure you want to talk about that?"
Bree: "Look, even we think that our TV is stupid. We're no different, you think that your TV is stupid too."
Me: "Yeah but according to some people, we're in a third-world country, so most of the times we get away with being stupid."
Bree: "Point taken. Want to watch House MD?"
Me: "Why ever not?"
Bree: "Stop mocking."
Me: "I'm not. Not yet."
My Day Has Been Made
It’s still early (early by my definition) and an anonymous person sent me this message. I couldn’t help but laugh. Funny how cyber-based people think of each other. Perhaps I should mention somewhere in my bio that I’m not to be trusted. Not ever. That I’m a natural born manipulator. But where’s the fun in that?

Is your computer broken or what?
For the love of God, stop starting sentences with lowercase letters. There are two shift buttons, you should try them sometimes. If you can pretend that your shift buttons don’t work, I CAN BLOODY WELL PRETEND MY CAPS LOCK BUTTON IS JAMMED ALL THE TIME!
Scarily, Shallowness Shall Somehow Sustain
And we have FPI to thank for that. What’s so threatening about Lady Gaga to FPI, that they just have to feel compelled to get in the way of people having their fun at her concert? What’s so great about FPI to Indonesia that the country has no say in this matter? As much as I love this country with every drop of my blood, she has everything that goes against every fiber of my being. One of our...
Yes, I regret to say that I’ve found Dark Shadows rather disappointing. I’m in no mood to explain so I’ll just put it plainly. I’m not going to say anything about Johhny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter. I knew Jonny Lee Miller’s acting wasn’t going to suddenly get better so it was sort of a I-told-you-so moment. As if Jonny Lee Miller wasn’t bad enough,...

On Dark Shadows
The plan is to watch it tomorrow. But most people who have, said it was disappointing. Okay. I’m a fan of both Tim Burton and Johnny Depp and I haven’t been disappointed in any of their works together. I’m holding my judgement until tomorrow. I do have some concern, however. Tim Burton picking Johnny Depp & Helena Bonham Carter is inevitable but letting Jonny Lee Miller mix...
