Gmail Hype Is Over

September 29th, 2004 Comments(6)

It seems like nobody is clamouring for a Gmail invite anymore. Some weirdo even sent an invite to my Gmail account. Strange fellow.

Simming

September 28th, 2004 Comments(7)

I've been simming. My sim just had a baby in the kitchen. Gahhh... I'm finding it so hard to take screenshots because I can't seem to angle it properly. Boo hoo. All my screenshots suck.

Unamused

I hate tickle fights. I don't even understand how it is amusing. Tickle all you want, but when the other party is furiously resisting, it's not funny anymore.

My Eyes

September 23rd, 2004 Comments(6)

For the first time in my life, someone told me my eyes are beautiful. I've been told my eyes were "cute" because they aren't quite even in size. And that they make me look "interesting". But no, never beautiful. :P

I think he meant my irises though. Because he asked me if I was wearing coloured contact lenses or if my eyes are naturally that shade of brown.

Strangers are well... strange. :P The comments they make.

My Own The Sims 2

September 23rd, 2004 Comments(8)

The Sims 2 arrived today. :) I wasn't expecting it cos Lele told me it was sent out yesterday and would take at least 2-3 days to reach. I love the fast postal service. :D

And lookie. The box is in Chinese. So are the manuals and discs and whatnot. I was kinda worried that the game would be in Chinese. But it wasn't. Phew.

Righty. I shall go install it now. :)

Games!

EA Sees Girl Power Boost with 'Sims 2' Sales

"Video game giant Electronic Arts expects to sell 2 million units of the "Sims 2" video game this year in Europe, proving skeptics wrong that you can't build a market around female gamers."

"Can the female-friendly "Sims 2" beat out bad boy title "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas," created by Edinburgh-based Rockstar North?"

I want to play Grand Theft Auto too! I just got told last night that I have boyish hobbies. >:O Anime, manga, computer games.

My Japanese Name

September 22nd, 2004 Comments(8)

This thing says my Japanese name is 秋本 Akimoto (autumn book) 千秋 Chiaki (very fine in autumn). Chiaki is a pretty name. :P Call me Chiaki. *Giggles* Chi-ah-ki.

Project Hangovers

September 21st, 2004 Comments(0)

It's incredible how I still have nightmares involving not finishing my projects. I woke up with a great big start today, trying to recall which project I haven't completed. It took me a while to remember that all my projects are over and done with for this semester.

Sigh.

Quest For RSS Aggregator

September 21st, 2004 Comments(2)

I ditched RSS Bandit. For some reason, it refused to update some of my feeds, and it hates parsing some feeds. I'm back to FeedDemon and I like it a whole lot better. At least it parses all my feeds.

Not to mention, the author doesn't call me a bloody "high school girl from Singapore". Condescending idiot. High school girl indeed.

Slimming Ads

September 20th, 2004 Comments(2)

I kept seeing slimming ads in today's issue of Streats so I decided to find out exactly how many there are.

EIGHT.

Eight freakin' slimming ads in one puny newspaper. And they wonder why Singaporeans seek slimming pills so much.
