I Hate Meetings

In Daily Annoyance on March 27, 2008 at 4:25 pm

In my professional life, there is one thing I hate the most and that is whenever somebody says:

“Meeting!”

It’s annoying how one should leave whatever he or she doing just to go into a room full of people, talking about stuff that usually bores us to the bone where we ended up sending prank text messages to other people or doodle the bosses’ faces in their notebooks to overcome the boredom.  I mean seriously.  I hate meetings.

Today’s Riddle

In Daily Annoyance, My American Idol Addiction, Ultimate Sarcasm on March 21, 2008 at 1:12 am

“Who are they gonna sacrifice next?”

First it was Hernandez.  Now Overmyer.

Will it be Smithson?  Will it be White?  God forbid it’ll be Archuleta.  Castro might survive, Johns… maybe.  Mercado was there once, so no guarantee she’ll be safe in the future.  Malubay sucks when the tempo picks up, but she’s prolly gonna be safe as long as she quits wearing those icky mom jeans -the height this week is outrageous.  Eze… well the show has to have a brother until like… top 5, so he’s prolly safe for the time being.   Cook knows he’s awesome and a lot of people probably do too.  His cockiness reminded me of our very own Ahmad Dhani.  Wait, his face too.  Well whatever, he’s gonna be safe, methinks.

So there Kristy Lee Cook, feel free to choose your next protective shield and keep on ruining great songs.  From the way things are rolling right now, I’d say if you keep doing that… you’ll make it to the top 3.  And you’ll make history too.

As the first ever Idol with absolutely no talent.

Have a great daaayyy 😀

“Ekselen” for “Excellent”?

In Daily Annoyance, Eyesore, Image Post, Sarcasm on March 10, 2008 at 11:37 pm

I don’t understand the ‘Indonesianized’ English.  To me, personally, if one wants to write in English then one should write it properly.  And if one does not know what an English word means in Bahasa Indonesia, then one should buy oneself um… what’s that thing called again? Ah yes… a DICTIONARY.

Ekselen My Ass

Why can’t they just say ‘Menuju Kinerja Sempurna” and spare the embarrassment? Tsk.

Attention LIA, ILP, EEP, EF!  The folks at Jasa Marga need an intensive training and they need it FAST.

The World Is MAD

In Daily Annoyance, Eyesore, Sarcasm, Ultimate Sarcasm on December 13, 2007 at 12:22 pm

I never liked it when I actually watch or read serious news.  It made me sad, depressed and disgusted ever so often.

It was quite a bummer to see Basuki, the comedian, died so suddenly out of a heart-attack.

But then I was faced with the most offending news ever in RCTI’s Bulletin Siang.  The handsome anchor delivered a news about a container, stuck at Tanjung Priok, filled with USED CONDOMS from Germany.  Not only that, they actually filmed what’s inside the container.  It made me sick.  How can they release such news ON LUNCHTIME?  To add the nausea factor, they even portrayed facts about how these used condoms are used for ladies’ hairbands.  Tsk.  RCTI.  Thank you for getting rid of my appetite.  You suck.

Aside from the icky news,

I found it really disgusting that what we wear on our HEADS were once used as contraceptive tools.  God knows where they’ve been and how.

It’s funny how a drunken one night stand can end up making you look pretty.

I wouldn’t be surprised if one of these days God get bored with human beings’ antics and decides to pull the plug so the earth stops spinning and doomsday will finally arrive.

The world is getting ridiculously mad.

Big Girl, Are You Beautiful?

In Daily Annoyance on December 10, 2007 at 1:08 pm

I’m intoxicated by Mika’s song titled ‘Big Girl You Are Beautiful’.  But then the question remains… is big really beautiful for girls?

I was born with a tendency to baloon up whenever I don’t exercise, and I do LOVE to eat.  Although compared to the likes of Queen Latifah and Pretty Asmara I’m quite small, I still consider myself as ‘big’.  Big as in whenever I stroll around the nearest ITC shopping complex, the loud salespersons would yell out “Ada ukurannya nih kak!” or loosely translated as “Hey we have YOUR size!”  which has a hidden “You are fatter than our regular customers but we feel sorry for you so we provide a limited selection of clothes that would PROBABLY fit you” meaning.  And yeah, as many would have guessed, the clothes usually don’t fit.

That is appalling, I must say.

Bahasa!

In Daily Annoyance on November 5, 2007 at 5:08 pm

And while we’re at it, I just want to scream something out loud to all non-Indonesians out there:

Our language is the BAHASA INDONESIA, people! NOT just BAHASA!

I couldn’t help but feel very irritated whenever I come across this common mistake. Bahasa is Indonesian for “Language”. It’s pretty annoying to hear somebody say: “Yeah I don’t speak Bahasa.” Bahasa WHAT, exactly? It’s like saying “Yeah I don’t speak Language.” Stupid, isn’t it? The safer way is to say “No, I don’t speak Indonesian.” Because we are Indonesian and we have a language called the Indonesian language or Bahasa Indonesia.

Should you decide to refer to our language using the Bahasa term, you might as well add ‘Indonesia‘ at the end. It makes more sense and it’s the right way to say it.

Phew!

On Being Pathetic

In Daily Annoyance, Sarcasm, Ultimate Sarcasm on October 16, 2007 at 4:44 pm

Right.  While we are being somewhat enraged thus awaken the bitchiness that had been kept nicely for quite some time now, I want to say something else.

So aside from this blog which I classify as my English trash bin for my thoughts, I also host another blog in Indonesian which… is not much of a difference, really.  And I’ve written cynical observations about how people behave when they’re infatuated (“in love” would be so overrated) with other people.  Most of my Indonesian blog buddies read it and laugh as I intended them to… but I found (pardon my language here) very sad and pathetic searches from Google in my dashboard, that people actually look for tips on flirting and how to interpret signals from their objects of desire.

Seriously, boys and girls!

Fcuk Off Lazy Bums!

In Daily Annoyance, Sarcasm on October 16, 2007 at 4:09 pm

Okay, we’re still in the holiday air and I don’t mean to be rude or anything.

It’s just because I’m one of those fussy people who appreciate originality MORE than anything else in this world.  And therefore I just want to spill my guts about people who are too damn lazy to even create their own holiday greetings.  I mean, seriously dude, how could you wish a Happy Eid, or a Merry Christmas, or a Happy New Year “from the bottom of your hearts” when all you do is just forwarding other people’s previous text message after changing the footer into your own freaking name?  It’s even more rude than not saying anything at all, methinks.

Annoying Me

In Daily Annoyance on June 28, 2007 at 10:46 pm

I usually write things that annoy me.  Well today is an exception because due to my flu, I apparently annoy those who are dear to me to the highest levels.   And therefore I would like to apologize for:

1.  My constant attention-seeking telephone calls
2.  My uncontrollable mood swings
3.  My exceptionally sensitive nose for smelling ‘mysterious’ reasons behind some actions

But come to think of it, I don’t have to apologize.  I have the flu, the sore throat and the painful joints and I’m entitled to be annoying.

Less Stressed My Ass

In Business, Daily Annoyance, Sarcasm on June 20, 2007 at 2:36 am

Despite the news of stupid students that breaks my heart, my reading spirit is somewhat high tonight and I came across this article.

So, does the phrase ‘less paid… less stressed’ apply to me?

Nope.

In the ideal world, I’d love to sip my tea while writing my next book from a terrace of a beachouse somewhere in Bora-Bora, bought by royalty money from my previous books which had turned into blockbuster movies.

But this is the real world we’re talking about.
