Okay. The new mouse is a tad heavier than i anticipated.




Filed under cyber woes

i did it.

I finally bit the bullet and ordered an Apple mouse.

After being frustrated by my lag-a-riffic Logitech one for more than a year.

Maybe now I’ll get Bejeweled Blitz scores of 500k. HAHA!

I cannot wait for it to arrive. Highlighting cases with this mouse makes my hand ache, and I sure as hell am not going to do it with the trackpad!

EDIT: Dammit it’s only going to arrive 18 Nov! :(

EDIT (1 day after): WOO it just shipped! I’m getting it tomorrow! Rejoicings be me! XD

you spin my head right round.

Three things.

1. I have just found out that I’m three months overdue to buy the AppleCare Protection Plan for my Macbook!!! WTF!!!! Why can’t I buy a Protection Plan if my Macbook is still in good working order even if I’ve exceeded the 1 year warranty?!

2. Chatterbox Chicken Rice has an affordable version in Downtown East! Went there for lunch with (the sick) Mr Mercedes today (who was milking the fact that he had a runny nose for all he was worth. you know u were! don’t deny it!). My mom thought I was shitting her when I said there’s an affordable version of Chatterbox in Downtown. I think she’s still dubious. LOL. Nice mother.
(If u’re reading this, Hi Mom! Grins.)

3. Islamic law is going nowhere. Zzz. All the Arabic terminology is making my head spin. I hope I don’t fail the exam :(

A lot has happened in my 3 week hiatus. I went to France, came back from France, and have not blogged about France. You will hear about France soon. Probably after mini-hellweeks 1, 2 and 3 are over.

The furniture for my living and bedroom arrived a day after I got back from France, and there was total pandemonium as we attempted to dismantle our old cabinet, arrange the new sofa, coffee table, TV console and other nitty gritties into some semblance of order. Why the hurry? We had a family gathering the next day. Which also meant marinating chicken, fishing leaves out of the gravel, giving my bonsai tree a haircut and pruning the unruly bamboo. Said bamboo looked worse than me on a bad hair day. We also went to Katong Flower Shop to buy 2 new plants. I have yet to name the big one. Heehee.

Anyway, today is the FIRST day of the NEW semester, the SECOND LAST semester of law school. I cannot help feeling melancholy. I don’t really want this to end. Law school was a dream I thought I’d never achieve, and even though there were major nightmares involved, I don’t want to give it up yet. :( At least there’s still one last year to savour (and bitch about).

I think I must have been insane to opt for double intensives and 9.30pm days Mon to Fri. What was I thinking?! I’m already quite exhausted from my first day. I cannot imagine, and do not want to imagine, how many facials I will need at the end of these 3 mini-hellweeks. I say mini because I can probably choose to ignore the readings and smoke in class if I want to. But I do not want to do that! Rachel is going to be a hardworking girl this semester! She is however going to swim with Jolin on Thursday. WOOHOO. I cannot wait.

Randomly, I cannot understand why WordPress insists on changing its layout every 3 months. I blog about 6 times, and hey presto there’s a newfangled new interface to squint at! Change for the sake of change is really not necessarily a good thing. ;p

apple, you suck.

My black Mac just died an hour ago. With my presentation for tomorrow and 8th draft of my Comparative Consti essay inside.

Please, God, let the data be recoverable.

I found out today that if you do not want to be found online, you will NOT be found.

Or maybe I just need better stalking skills.

BUT! I was successful. Or at least I think I was.

Lexis is so effing irritating!
1. It lags like !@#$
2. There’s something wrong with it security certificate so its content keeps getting blocked
3. Coupled with the fact that it’s laggy, I took 15min to find one stewpid case!!!

It doesn’t exactly help that my neighbour directly above is drilling whilst I’m trying to do my property assignment.
