'Chicken Soup'

Again I am blogging using one of the computers in campus. This so DO NOT feel good. I miss my internet connection… Well, you won’t know what’s gone until it’s gone, huh?

Today was my lab partner’s birthday. Someone who I argue a lot with or just seldom talk because there is nothing to talk about. Well, we got him a book- ‘Chicken Soup for the College Soul’. What’s more is that I wrapped it 8 times I think with newspaper. It wasn’t my idea but a few others suggested it as well. I’m not mean or am I?? *blink blink* If I really did get him chicken soup, he would probably freak out. I wouldn’t know.

I suppose he is contented with it since we (7 of us) weren’t that sure of what to get for a guy when it is his birthday. Talk about gifts, I think that books make really thoughtful gifts. You just need to find something that everyone likes. Something inspirational, motivational, or just anything with humour in it.

Oh yeah, I passed my Malaysian Studies… Whee!!!

The strange man...

I was sleeping earlier because I planned to stay up tonight to watch some shows while I can.

I dreamt that I was with a friend I know, a guy. It was already night time and I don’t know why I dropt by his place. But when we were about to leave together, heading to another place, a big and tall man in a suit with a hat came and bashed him up. If I remember correctly, his suit had designs like stripes; orange and grey in colour. In my dream, his image was not that clear almost like a drawing since the colours were so faint. I couldn’t exactly see his eyes nor any other characteristics.

He demanded for something that was with me. My pendrive. The weird thing was, it wasn’t exactly mine because mine has a black penskin while the pendrive which I was holding had an orange penskin.

After taking the pendrive, he left us alone. Somehow, the setting of the place seemed too familiar like my house in Bukit Mertajam. Then, I thought about the types of file that was in the pendrive and wondered why he was so interested in them. There weren’t any important files but my assignments. Realising that I just lost a whole lot of information, I woke up in shock because I thought I could not pass up my assignment then.

Currently, I’m glad that its a dream.

When You're Gone by Avril Lavigne

Alright, another singing time. Also by Avril Lavigne. I was listening to this song for the past few days. In her album, ‘The Best Damn Thing’, I love this song and ‘Innocence’ most. I’ve put up the lyrics for ‘Innocence’ before. Surely, this song is also good to mend a broken heart and help heal faster. Well, it worked for me. heheh…

When You’re Gone by Avril Lavigne

I always needed time on my own
I never thought I’d need you there when I cry
And the days feel like years when I’m alone
And the bed where you lie is made up on your side

When you walk away I count the steps that you take
Do you see how much I need you right now

[Chorus]
When you’re gone
The pieces of my heart are missing you
When you’re gone
The face I came to know is missing too
When you’re gone
The words I need to hear to always get me through the day and make it ok
I miss you

I’ve never felt this way before
Everything that I do reminds me of you
And the clothes you left, they lie on the floor
And they smell just like you, I love the things that you do
When you walk away I count the steps that you take
Do you see how much I need you right now

[Chorus]

We were made for each other
Out here forever
I know we were, yeah
All I ever wanted was for you to know
Everything I’d do, I’d give my heart and soul
I can hardly breathe I need to feel you here with me, yeah

[Chorus]

Zilch!

When I’m bored, I crap a lot. It is a fact. Doesn’t the title of this entry sound like a spell or a word for cursing because we don’t hear it all the time? Hahaha…

Suddenly, this question appeared like the sound of a bell ‘tink!’. What other words other there to replace the word ‘nothing’? You see, I read from somewhere that when girls say ‘nothing’, there is always ’something’ and the person who asks the girl ‘What’s wrong?’ would keep on asking.
When I say ‘nothing’ when there’s something, it means I don’t want to be questioned further but sometimes, people who asks me questions just don’t get it. Finally, I found a word—> *drum rolls* ZILCH! If I say ‘zilch’, then they’ll ask me what ‘zilch’ is and when I tell them it means ‘nothing’, they would probably have forgotten what the something from the ‘nothing’ is. Confusing? How about in ‘dialogue’ form?

A: Hey, what’s wrong?
Me: Zilch
A: What’s that?
Me: Go figure. It’s something
A: Lazy lah. Tell lah what is it?
Me: It’s ‘nothing’.
A: Don’t tell me ‘nothing’. I know it’s something.
Me: I said it’s ‘nothing’.
A: Eh, don’t play play. Quickly tell.
Me: Zilch means ‘nothing’. Nothing is zilch.
A: Oohh…. I get it.
Me: *mission accomplished*

The person would probably forgotten about what he/she wanted to ask earlier. Ain’t it a good plan of deviating the person’s attention to something and changing the topic? What other ways would you suggest?
