Pathetic pansy-ass 2016

Sunday 28 February 2016, 5.35am HKT


THAT’s exactly the problem.

Try to schedule a post. Then misfired at the go-get. Then salvage the thing by adding rubbish to the empty post. A great start for the first post for 2016.

Please don’t remind me that my last post was a depressing 95 days ago.

Turn me into a messenger, and I’ll turn you into ash

Wednesday 25 November 2015, 6.37pm HKT


18:29h local time SITREP

I got rammed to the ground sideways about 45 minutes ago by persons unknown and non grata.

Since I’ve done nothing wrong and everything with me has always been aboveboard, it means I’ve been made a messenger of.

SOMEONE once told me:—

“When you’re in anger, you should sit down and start writing something. That usually calms a person down.”

I don’t think so.

I miss you too, I really do

Tuesday 28 April 2015, 2.21am HKT


1.53am local time, 27°C (81°F), warm and a bit humid

I know. I’ve bunked off for nearly two months.

My right arm is getting better, which is good news. The rest of my life seems to be crumbling to pieces, however.

(via chisholm.trainingvc.com.au)

I seemed to have torn something in my right deltoid muscle. I couldn’t move my arm. I couldn’t raise it.

The pain was bloody unbearable!

Other than that, I’ve had occasion to think about (and think over) a lot of things. Some seem to be progress, others seem like regressions. I’ll start writing about them in a couple of days, and you can decide which is which then.

Gawd, I hate the new WordPress editor interface. It’s just completely retarded

Je suis la nouvelle année

Tuesday 13 January 2015, 7.09am HKT


2.58am local time, 12°C (54°F), cold with heavy rain

I think most of us should be on 2015 by now — and probably falling apart like everything else is already in this world of ours.

Normally on the first day of the new year, I post this sort of embarrassment to remind peep’l just who (and what) is behind the unfunny hilarity of this blog. I broke with my own tradition and posted this shameless nonsense for 2014.

I might as well go with breaking the tradition for this year.

Because heaven knows when the next post will ever come…

Each item originates from at least one serious, factual, objective detail about me. They’re only done up in a special way to make them seem less serious.
