There are just some things in this that can bring out both the best and the worst in people.
For me, a simple thing like taking public transport can be either a very enjoyable journey when the ride is smooth, I've music to listen to or a book to read, and there are no annoying people, or it can turn me into a pissed-off bitch with all the squeezing and smelly odours floating around.
The World Cup is here and this year, more than any other previous years, you've got more people watching the matches at McDonalds and the few selected community centres since the subscription fees are so high. And when more of something is really never a good thing.
At McDonalds, you get inconsiderate fuckers who somehow manage to position themselves (standing) exactly where their heads will block three-quarters of the screen, and still manage to look perfectly incredulous when you politely ask them to
fuck move off.
People also don't seem to understand that it is only basic courtesy to at least get a drink or something when you occupy such a huge table for anywhere between 2 to 5 hours at one shot. Don't sit there for the entire duration empty-handed when they're kind enough to let you watch your favourite sport.
Absolutely hate such retarded people.
To be honest, I'm not a die-hard soccer fan- I won't die without catching Man U vs Liverpool- but when countries compete for the same trophy, it somehow makes the entire 'competition' much more interesting. During the UEFA Euro Cup 2 years back, I stayed out late nearly every night to watch the matches, but when EPL rolled around, I just wasn't that bothered except to catch a few Arsenal matches. Then World Cup came, and I've started staying out late again. Pity I've got to work full time now, and can't afford the late nights. Boohoo.
Just finished reading Xiaxue's blog. http://xiaxue.blogspot.com/2010/06/gay-conversion.html
I've mentioned this before I think, but somehow people just cannot seem to get it that gays don't choose to be that way. Who the hell would choose to be despised and rejected by society on purpose? Siao ah?
I don't remember ever bothering much about whether they chose to be gay or not, even before I found out the truth, but I've never understood why people cannot all these so-called "freaks". Just because its not a =o match does not make it a sin or a crime. Weirdly, even after this fact has undergone scientific studies and yielded quite significant results, people still don't get it. For a wonderful example, just look at our lovely legal system.
There are people around me whom I suspect are gay but are still in the closet. Haha.
But somehow I observe that lesbians are kinda more accepted than gays. People hardly bat an eye an lesbian couples cuddling each other but when gay couples so much as move slightly too close together, brows get raised and the whispering starts. What the heck.
Alright. Time to do a little packing up. I specially took half a day off just to go to the clinic to get an injection. Hopefully it will stop all those itchy, mosquito-bite looking lumps to stop popping up. Anything that will work, I will try. Haha. Ironically, I've still not called KK to rebook that appointment I missed that year, even though everyone's been nagging me about it for months. Procrastination. Yep, that's me. =)
