I need to stop dreaming about celebrities I don’t even like :/

15 Dec

…or maybe I have some sort of hidden passion for them.

First it was Bieber, now…


I’m so ashamed I have difficulty admitting it.



So, instead of shilly-shallying…

Anyway, last night, I dreamt I was dating…


I was dating the vampire, not the actor. I’m not sure if that’s better or worse.

He was not a creepy stalker in said dream (which is good), and the dream itself was actually fairly exciting, involving plunging off really tall buildings (à la Yuna from FFX – instead of having an aeon save me, I had a vampire instead), and various injuries including the backs of people’s heads coming off, pieces of skull and all… (since they were vampires, they were all right in the end; I think this is due to all the police procedural dramas I’ve been watching, i.e. Unforgettable, CSI, The Mentalist)… all in all it would have been a thoroughly entertaining dream, except for the fact that I was infatuated with him. *shudders*. (maybe my secret fangirl is going squeee inside? -.- )

The only reason I could think of for this is because I’ve been reading a certain very entertaining blog :<

P.S. If I was going to dream about vampires, I can think of many many others I would infinitely prefer – all of the non-sparkly variety, and generally better looking with kickbutt powers, or at least more interesting personalities, e.g. Lestat (Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles), Kuran Kaname (Vampire Knight), Alucard (Hellsing), and my favourites Saya & Haji from Blood+.

even your dreams aren’t as fun when you grow up :C

7 Dec

So last night I dreamt that I was given a million ten million (I keep saying one, for some reason it’s a more comfortable number 😛 and perhaps more believable)..sorry, went off track… anyway ten million dollars, USD to be very precise.

Instead of getting around to a lot of fun stuff to be done with that amount of money, in my dream, I handed it over to a friend to open an account for me and to let it be invested.

I MEAN WHY?! There are a lot more fun things that I could have done!!! It was a dream!

The only good part was I woke up and told my friend about it, and hoped that it would be a prophetic dream. And soon. Lol.

smiling like sheldon…

30 Nov

So apparently, according to one of my friends, sometimes when I smile, I smile like Sheldon. We’ve been watching a fair bit of Big Bang theory together (as well was Unforgettable, the various CSIs, the Mentalist and HIMYM) and I was going to take it as a compliment until I googled “Sheldon Cooper smiling”.

The images I found had lovely examples such as:


to be honest, I think Jim Parsons has a pretty good smile normally

So at the moment I’m still reserving judgement on how gratified/offended I should feel at that offhand comment. 🙂

In other news, it is the last day of Nanowrimo..and I have only written 20000 words :/ FAIL.  It is however, 10 000 more than I wrote last year. Which means if I keep this up, I’ll be able to complete a Nanowrimo in 2014 o.O.

why is my phone constantly updating nowadays?

28 Oct

Anyway thanks to the strangeness of my phone, I didn’t get to take pictures of my groupmates and me all happy at the pub in uni after our presentation when we went for celebratory drinks (dinna fash yoursel, I had a cider, though we were joking that we should get sploshed on campus just for kicks). We were joined by my two supervisors, and had a long conversation consisting largely of biology. Feral animals. Snakes. Insects. And a little bit on IVF and autism ._o. Judging by the enthusiasm when we were talking about fauna, I’d say a few people missed their calling…though someone did sum it up as “There’s no jobs and no money in biology.”

Now that everything is finally over, besides cleaning my room and getting the rest of my life in order, I realised that I’ve accumulated a backlog of books I want to read (or re-read). My end goal is 12th December (because I don’t want to carry them all the way back to M’sia) so:

1) Old Kingdom Chronicles, Garth Nix. 3 books and a novella in total. Lowest priority since I already have them in M’sia too but I feel like reading them now. 
2)  The Hidden Star, The Native Goddess, both by MK Hobson
3) The Enchanted Forest Chronicles, Patricia C. Wrede, 4 books
4) Wintersmith, I Shall Wear Midnight, both by Pterry
5) Elenium and Tamuli, David and Leigh Eddings, I just finished the first book so 5 more. Also low priority cos these are on my computer and I have the hardcopies at home
6) The Chronicles of Prydain, Lloyd Alexander (6 books counting The Foundling)
7) Archangel by Sharon Shinn
8) A Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale
9) All three of Glenda Larke’s trilogies (9 books in all).

34. I don’t know how I’ll get this done short of locking myself in my room and spurning all social interaction.. ><. Or not sleeping.


..I also have two more Carrie Ryan zombie novels, one Mercedes Lackey, a Stephen Deas, three Jennifer Roberson and two books by Gene Wolfe that I can’t bring myself to finish/start for various reasons (generally the stories are either too realistic and nitty gritty which tends to depress me or too hammy/cheesy).


Of course this doesn’t include all the anime and manga I want to watch/read ❤

poem for the raindrops

28 Sep

I want to sit around writing odes to the weather and how I love it for chasing away the oppressive heat that has been around lately, but as tempting as that is, I have a thesis that is long overdue (thank you my kind and tolerant and extremely supportive supervisors) as well as assignments and exams to study for.

I think I did once write a poem for the rain in my (distant) youth which somehow ran along the  lines of

[pertaining raindrops]

They fall down
To the ground.

As you can see, Tennyson and Wordsworth I am not (incidentally, Wordsworth is such an aptonym. Simply lovely).  The poem was also much longer, but I don’t remember the rest of it.

I leave you instead with a random google image of raindrops. Because I can.

I didn’t think I could..

22 Sep

…but I have amazingly reached a new level of laziness.

I feel like reading but I’m too lazy hold a book and look down at it.. it’s so tiring on my fingers and wrists to hold the paperback properly without damaging it 😛

Audiobooks would be a perfect solution…except I don’t really like listening to them.. I can’t pace the chapters as I would like.


In other news, I’m currently torn between a mango cake, a rich chocolate tart or lemon tart :/
And my holidays are going to end soon so I won’t have time to bake anymore 😦

Thank you Japan…

10 Sep

…for keeping up your boybands long after the English song era has abandoned them.

Ahhh Bakame, I miss the old KAT-TUN sometimes even though I think Jin leaving was the best for them…

…back to puzzling over my thesis bah. >.>
