Xephyris says:

LCD monitors have almost no glare and super nice steady no flicker images *envious*.

but... but but but...

it's not bright enough for 3D gaming :) even with gamma set all the way up, sometimes.
My 3 year old monitor finally gave up the ghost Friday morning, after past troubles with the power button, and a refusal to turn off after specified intervals. The following was written in Graffiti. Consequently, among other things, gs and qs might be mixed up.

This morning, I saw 'He With Curly Hair, Who Would Look Better If He Shaved His Moustache'. He's one of those few Asians who have curly hair - as rare as Africans who have straight hair. He looks a bit mousy, and I do think he'd look better if he shaved it. I've actually contemplated going to him and telling him that, but apparently he's quite attached to it, and Wang Shuo says, "he's very violent". Ah well. I wonder if I'll see him after this year (just like The Person Who Eats 2 Eggs Every Morning).

Chin Yung was looking at a photo book before GP!. On one page, there was a photo of him and another guy with one very obvious Flesh Parader, and 2 others who were less so. Naturally, I identified their ECA immediately. There was also a photo of him with this known-A03er, but I'd not known she was in Flesh Parade too. I wonder what proportion of A03's in Flesh Parade.

Example of the weird stories coming out of Ma-laysia (and the weird logic of some Malaysians):
a recent study by the Institute of Urology here suggests that men in Perlis may actually be in need of the drug [Viagra]. The study found that the number of middle-aged men who were impotent was above the national average. This has greatly upset the Perlis Mentri Besar, Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim, who has spent the past three days vigorously defending the virility of men from his state. 'We have among the highest number of men practising polygamy. If you have more than one wife you cannot be impotent,' he said.

I didn't come up with much weird stuff today during GP. During the prelims, my sentences irritated the marker (Mrs Dayna Chia) so much, she wrote comments on my script. The weirdest sentence I managed today was 'foresight', about having the foresight not to build my bungalow at the Three Gorges in China, for fear of a flooded wine cellar. I'm rather put out at myself. Maybe I'll post some of my better sentences in the future. Julian reminded me of the time when Chinx, me and him all did themed sentences, pissing Mrs Chan off. Heh.

This girl was reading a book of quotations before the exam. (...)

Grr, the Compre was hard (though the passage was amusing, being written funnily). When in doubt, it is always good to use 'African tribes' for examples, as their customs vary so much that anything you write about them is probably true. Like half the world did the computers, mobile phones and communications. And probably the other half (S03 students or the essay memorisers) did cloning. I did one of my (many) pet topics - "Is the idea of having one partner for life still realistic?'. Not too well done, though. Ugh.

Act Cute had a weird expression on her face, and the way she picked her fingers was funny.

Something about the aforementioned expatriate's speech reminded me of an Air Steward. Hrm.

For some reason, people were amused when, when asked by the invigilator to crush my piece(s) of used paper, I tore one sheet in half. I wonder why.

Blank faced girl's understudy had an expression on her face today! Maybe it was due to her splashing her top when in the toilet. Tong likes to dry her hands on her skirt. Guys do dry them on their pants too, but fortunately for us, wet purple sackcloth (or white cotton) is less obvious than wet green cotton.

Someone on the busker: He's not blind or crippled. Me: He's not even pretending to be blind or crippled. I tried pacing the underpass today, and found an approximately right pace. Now to wait for him to show up. My estimate is next Friday, after Physics. He likes to come in the afternoons.

Apparently they have mo4 xie3 in the THE Chinese High School school. So much for Chinese being a living language (and in a SAP school too). If you get it wrong, you get whacked with a wooden spoon! Talk about Communist. (Xephyris says he cheated by writing on the table in pencil. Dewious (sic).)

I saw a Malay girl reading "Chicken Soup for the Single's Soul". The whole thing has gone from stupid to ridiculous. There are editions for the Pet Lover's Soul, the Golfer's Soul ("Oh no! I didn't score a hole in one. My hole in one insurance was wasted", or, I drove it into a lake. Grr.), and who knows what else. I hope David Fisher will come out with "Chicken Shit for the Soul 3" soon (I much prefer the original title of the first - Chicken Poop for the Soul. Nicer ring).

There were some PJ girls on the train today, but they were downwind from Kai leung, Minrui and I. Minrui pointed out that there was one behind us, but she was sitting down, so we weren't caught in the downdraft.

Hehe. Yaoi Girl was scandalised to find out what 'bukkake' is. Perhaps that will enliven the dull week ahead (one paper in the week? Argh, so lucky!). The only reason *I* know is that in my Morpheus searches, I found the term and asked Xephyris. Maybe I'll ask Minrui on Monday.

I need a new stylus. The top of the present one's loose. Hell, I'd like a Clie PEG-N760C. *Drool*.

Aha. I now have a Samsung SyncMaster 151s 15" Multi Function TFT LCD Monitor.

The National Library Board is too rich - see how many LCDs they have.

Mats [Pronunciation: Mah'ts] was today. Mats is good. I like Mats. Matss is hard.

Madam Teng came up to talk to me today. I thought it'd be about the JC Guide thing.

"Are you taking your A Levels?... You are taking a risk... You are the one taking a risk" (On my scandalously long hair)

Oh well. It's not rebellious-long, it's lazy-to-cut-long.

We had this expatriate teacher as he-who-makes-the-announcements for invigilation. Presumably he's been here long, because he *gasp* lapsed into a S'pore accent for a word or too every so often.

The media centre is good. It's air-conditioned. Julian got the air-con vent again. Ah well.

One of my ongoing searches found a target again. "Girls with hairier legs than I" [Someone else: "That's hitting below the belt"]. Not an Indian (They're not counted). I would try and look out for guys with less hairy legs than I do, but it's a bit hard with long pants, and I've been to PE as many times this year as fingers I have (IIRC).

[Danny, after feeling my legs] Your legs are smoother than my girlfriend's. [Me: What were you doing feeling your girlfriend's legs?]

Blank faced girl wasn't that blank faced today.

I got to bring home 2 columns' stacks of unused paper. For some reason they gave out 2 sheets of graph paper to everyone, so I've now a lifetime's supply. I actually didn't want to take it, but even after they dismissed us, they didn't take it back, so I kept my row's stack [I was at the front of Column B] and took the Column C's.

Xiaoshi asked me what I was going to do with them. I suggested that I would colour the squares. "Isn't that what girls do?" said she. I didn't know they were that bored/screwed up! Chong See Eng used to punish people by making them colour the alternate squares on his isometric/graph paper, or sandpaper the junk wooden pieces.

The busker was in residence at the Buona Vista underpass again! I went to look at the piece of paper on the ground and confirmed that yes, it was his lyrics. What sort of busker refers to lyrics??? And he finally took his foot off the wall. The next time I walk there, I'm going to have to find a pace commensurate with the timing of 'Ave Verum Corpus', in preparation for the next time I see the busker there. This time I just walked off quickly.

Argh, all the ACJC people were coming out at the same time as us. The aura...

I have this theory that PJ girls stink. Whenever I meet them on the MRT... Today, one was at the door and, yah. And there were like 3-4 behind me, and when the train slowed, the inertia of the air brought it past me and Minrui.

This is disgusting. There are 6 Bubble Tea outlets in the Ghim Moh area, 2 around the unfortunately named 'GM Food Centre'.

Saw a Raffles Guy. There was this ACJC guy around her. Andrew Gan claimed that they were siblings, but maybe not. Eheh. And both of them had collars lined blue on the inside (ACJC shirt, and the newer RGS PE-Shirt, which is disgusting like the older RGS PE Shirt, but in a different way.

This one looks plain uncomfortable, with rough-looking fabric [and apparently feels uncomfortable too]. And a collar on a PE shirt??? But the old one was disgusting because the collar became loose after a few washes [flopping around when worn, exposing their invariably black or grey coloured sports bras] and the material became transparent. *shudder* Disgusting. Almost as bad as Unspeakable Sights.)

And more people who hiked their skirts improperly! One plump ACJC girl. The last time I saw one so obvious, it was this Indian CJC girl at Shaw House, whose skirt was maybe 1/3 shorter at the back than the front. This one wasn't so bad though.

ACJC friend (in A03 equivalent combi!) on AC girls:

Most AC girls brag about doing it. [Ed: From Melvin's descriptions, I'm not surprised. But then Melvin has his weird ideas, which are sometimes even more mind boggling than mine]

Most try to be wild. [Ed: From their reputation... Which JC now holds the 'highest abortion rate in Singapore' title now? Started off as CJC. Not so sure about now.]

Most tuck more than half of the socks into their shoes so that they'd look like ankle socks. [Ed: I'd think they'd be 'hot' enough to get proper Hot Socks!]

Most fold their skirts up so that it'll look short. [Ed: Explains why the longest skirt in ACJC is 3 cm above the knee. But why don't they just hike the damn things up? Or are they afraid of hiking the back too high?]

Most desperately try to straighten their hair. [Ed: Asian hair's already quite straight. Adela is the only one I know of with curly hair, IIRC]

Most are just plain stupid. [Ed: Don't know very many ACJC girls myself. 2-3]

They know how to dress :) [Ed: I wouldn't know an ACJC girl if she was out of her Uniform, would I? So no comment.]
and they know how to carry themselves. [Ed: With that walk?]

aesthetically, they're a good catch.
most of them anyway. [Ed: Well.]

they're just not as full as angst and they don't make the time to sit around and brood long enough to be labelled "deep" people. [Ed: Hurrah. Sitting around brooding like Tim The Great used to do is bad for health and happiness]
they're mostly the out-going sort of fun-loving folks. [Ed: Figures]

I sent her my description of A03 people, and apparently it applies to all ACJC girls. Woah. ACJC A03 must be really *really* intensely *like that* then.

Anonymous comments (from the same person):

the bastard at the Orchard MRT underpass has been there for *years*
i remember passing him in sec 2 [NB: The writer is 22 this year, 2001] before he could afford an accordion and was singing
clearly the busker has had capital upgrades over the years.

SCGS has the most indecent girls in singapore bar none
although the SJC [St Joseph's Convent] lesbians come close

mycoommend then [that singaporean webpages are either mindless or angsty] is even more true now
notice theyall use the lame diary/wannabe journal/nihliistic pastel colours/small fonts/obscure phrases rather than compelte sentences/obscure, wannabe-lietrary titlature.. etc etc.

Ooo, Ms Bala(singamchow) also doesn't like NYPS:

"Btw, just read your NYPS rant. I was a victim too. Mdm Ho Chin Geok was the P in my time. *shudder*. And nothing to add. Sounds like you went through the same NYPS that I did... I have sworn never to give any alumni donations to NYPS. I was so upset with the school in Primary 6 that I refused to put it down in my secondary school choices, which caused my mother some distress... I really don't have pleasant memories of the place."

More dissatisfied customers. What a difference 9 years (apart) makes. Or not.
