The Internet is Forever

“The single biggest problem with communication is the illusion that it has taken place.”                                 

George Bernard Shaw

I got the above quote from Criminal Minds Season 5 Episode 22. One thing that I did the past few months was watching a lot of drama such as CSI (Original, New York and Miami),  NCIS(Original and LA), Flash Forward, etc.

This Episode was about a serial killer who used the internet to find his victim on social networking sites. As if I am not paranoid enough about internet security, I have to scare myself silly about what to share on the internet. So, what is my business keeping a blog?

As Special Agent Rossi said:
Rossi: Can somebody explain to me the appeal of these sites? "Eating sushi tonight yum." "Boss is keeping me late tonight grrr." Whose life is so important that we'd be interested in this kind of detail?

That set me thinking… do YOU really want to know what I did yesterday? LOL!!!

June 10, 2010

Yikes! Can someone please tell me what I have been doing these past few months? Would you believe if I said I was kidnapped, got hit in the head and was in a coma?

Obviously I woke up else I won't be posting here.

Swirling Bag

While farming, I made this..... all because Emily says it is nice! So, I made this with her in mind.

I wasn't very sure reading the instructions but just crocheted and sewed the sides together anyhow. Managed to finish the first one 3 weeks ago with some calculation error ending with one hole less for the drawstring. Luckily, I did not ask for Emily's address before I finish it. I thought I quickly make and send it off before I lose interest...

I used Nona 88, 95, 63 and 89 for anyone who is interested to know. Anyway, I thought the colours were too bright and went to get something more pastel. I used the same purple and green, with a lighter blue and orange. Problem was the orange was Minlon and not Nona. Thinking the Minlon was a little thinner, I used two strands of different colours for the orange part. Anyway, ended up with different tension and got this....

All the while I was using the first one I made for my computer's adapter and carrying it with my notebook. Of course, I got a lot of oohss and ahss which spurs me to buy more yarns. (Its 10 sen cheaper each roll in a pack of five one colour.)

I made a couple more but still no sign of Emily's .... LOL!!! Meaning it was given away to someone else.

After the 3rd one, I should know what I was doing but obviously I was still unsure of the instructions....

They all look almost the same, you won't know if I say this is the one I made for Emily. ^_* I wanted to surprise Emily but she already guessed when I said am sending her something. So, I better blog it up before laziness sets in again. I still have enough yarns for 3 more!

Most important is that I am happy making them, right?

Lovely Blog Award?

*Paiseh* You can see me turning red from embarrassment .... but thank you Javapot! The rules are simple but not to me because I haven't been blogging or visiting blogs to find 15 new-to-me blogs to pass this award to. So, how?

Anyway, Javapot wants to know what Biblo means. I don't know what it means but I can tell you how it came about..... ^_*

Around that time a few years ago when I was registering in some forums due to the Korean drama addiction, I was reading this book :

Well, the hobbit's name was actually Bilbo... and that was what I used to register as my user id. But when I tried to log in again, I keep getting wrong password message. It was later that I found out that my user id was actually Biblo and so it stayed.... ^_*

What are friends for?

They are the ones that call you up at 11 am for breakfast on a Sat morning...

Yes, this one behind the newspaper. And it is a known fact that breakfast can also mean lunch, shopping or driving around looking at show houses... so there is no point in asking, how long is this going to take? Just be prepared to spend at least a few hours and if you don't put your foot down, it might end up with dinner as well. Luckily, I refused the suggestion for a foot massage and arrived back in Pontian around 4.30 pm, a few hours late for my weekend job.

This time breakfast also means going to a golf club house without a membership.

Of course, your friend said we were doing field study for the Nusantara area. Is it worth to buy the company's stock behind these projects? *cough*

Anyway, I was feeling dizzy and nausea(I have this motion sickness problem) from the driving around that we ended up at the club house having a drink.

This is the good friend - Hoei Chin sitting on my right.

The other suffering good friend - Wei Lee.

And me in the middle!

I was lugging around my notebook and luckily got free wireless connection that I was able to harvest in time....

Empty Room

Where is she?
You'll probably find her busy plowing, seeding and harvesting in FARMVILLE.
For your information everyone's on FB now..... you know what's FB?
I didn't know then, but I knew Facebook.

Room without the door

I came home today and found the door to my room missing.... ^_*

Tiles should be done by tomorrow, hopefully. Was not supposed to go into the room but couldn't help myself... must follow the squares to the bathroom!

Don't know what I did to the above photo.. must have stretch/skewed it not proportionately.
