Yo-ho, yo-ho, a pirate's life for me.  
Before I go ahead and rant about my oh-so-perfect internet connection, lemme get onto the good stuff. :D


1) PIRATES OF THE CARRIBEAN 2 TRAILER UP!!!!

[ ONE ]
[ TWO ]

There's something wrong with both links though. The first one is okay, if not only for the early timing of the sound effects. The second one is perfect, but then buffering is an evil word and you don't get to see the whole trailer because of that.

I downloaded both of course. ^___^ I'd look for better links but Bayantel is being cooperative once again.

Jack Sparrow's facial expressions are love as usual. Yay, Johnny Depp.


2) I got to go to UPAME.

Got to see cosplayed people and the Sakura and Syaoran couple was just so cute for words. Whenever people would ask for pictures, Syaoran would hug Sakura while she smiled shyly at the camera. So cute, I actually thought they were real. XD I have pictures, of course. But it's in psychedelic_aya's phone.

There were also other cosplayed characters I liked who portrayed the characters so well like that Sakura from Street Fighters. Her bubbly atmosphere was so perfect for the character. One Yuuko from xxxHOLIC had that mysterious atmosphere feel in her. There was also cursed Sasuke and Rock Lee from Naruto. And Robin from Witch Hunter Robin had one of the teh best costumes ever. <3

Also, I GOT TO BUY MAAYA SAKAMOTO'S DIVE!!!! OMG! OMG! FINALLY, I HAVE AN ALBUM OF HERS! It was kinda cheap too. But I'm thinking it's because it's used. I usually don't buy used albums but ite was in such perfect condition that I don't regret buying it at all. :) I feel so lucky. Yayness.

Sadly, I didn't get to meet h_matsumoto since I had to leave early. :( Oh well. Next time, maybe?



1) BAYANTEL

Refer to previous post for a long introduction. I don't wanna go into as much detail, because I sick and tired of this bad service I've been getting.

Since day 1 of the first screw up, I have been calling them every single day, pestering them with questions, asking them what's wrong and asking for them to come.

They said they'd come yesterday. At 11am, they informed us. 1pm and still no BayanTel. UPAME starts at 1pm. Because of the stupid maintenace guys that never showed up, I was late for UPAME that sm16 and psychedelic_aya had to wait for me. (I'm so sorry, btw.) Our guardian, knowing how I waited and all that, yelled at the operator when he called that afternoon. She feels my pain, and she made the operator feel our pain. Yay for us. I sort of feel sorry for the unknown operator guy though but oh well, he works for BayanTel and therfore deserves it.

I called them at least twenty times--I'm not kidding--today, asking why the hell the connection still sucks, hinting to send the technicians over but it took them at least twenty phone calls to get the idea. Isn't that nice.

I hate this, I feel like killing myself. I don't think I can take another day of this madness but according to the records, we still have around 4 months of cursedom before this minimum with BayanTel expires. I wanna change servers. :(

And Internet Optimizer is not helping either. In case you didn't get it the last post, I HATE YOU TOO, INTERNET OPTIMIZER.

I did learn one thing though: I can actually be a patient person. As huge as my fury was for BayanTel, not once did I raise my voice to yell at them stupid slackers, I was pretty calm every conversation. Though after every call, I'd slam the phone and curse verbally, at least the operator wasn't unfortunate enough to feel my angry fury.

These are the times I miss my mum for. She can do the yelling for me because she can be as fiesty as she can be to get the job done. She's coming back on December 1, World Aids Day. Can't wait.


2) INTERNET OPTIMIZER

Enough said. (Thank God for that no? Else you would have to read an equally long post about this one. XD)


3) NBS FACTORY SALE

I was not able to go.

Me and jileh were planning to go together today to drool at the books but for a stupid twist of events, I wasn't able to. I don't know about Jilly though, hopeful she was able to go but slim chance of that happening since I was supposed to bring her with me.

The lines were outrageously long though since there were only 3 cashiers present (which is pretty stupid, considering it's an NBS factory sale) The place was crowded and you'd have to dig for the books you want in boxes too. So the place was pretty much messy.

But I still regret not going. As low as 50% off the books I love and since it's a factory sale, there's bound to be rare books I still haven't gotten my grubby hands on. PFFFT.


4) MY BROTHER

Gawd, the lovesick fool is talking about his frustrated love life on the phone with his friend as I type and it's sickening to hear him moan in defeat or whine pathetically about something that did not go well between him and the unfortunate object of his affections.

Why oh why must I endure this pain?

I forbade him to talk about his love life in my presence (for obvious reasons) but with the way he screams in delight at the slightest bit of progress, it's inevitable for me not to overhear.

I guess I'm supposed to play the supportive sister but--blech. No thanks. x.x



I dialled my dad's phone number last Friday to ask permission to go to UPAME. Did not realize that I dialled the wrong number until the receipent sent me a text message asking who I was.

Thinking it was a waste of money and that the receipient would ignore and forget about me, I did not reply. Boy, did I think wrong. The person kept sending me messages, pestering me for my name (which I obviously did not give) and calling me to introduce herself. Pretty stupid to waste her load on a total stranger like me but it's her money, not mine.

I turned off my phone last night to keep the calls away since they were starting to get annoying. I turned it on last night before sleeping for the alarm clock to wake me up at 10.

I woke up at 8 because she called again. She called asking for my name again and I was so pissed that I just turned the phone off without warning. When I turned it on around lunch time, I got a automated message saying that the person called me 6 times that day. What a loser, couldn't she take a hint?

Apparently not. I got this very comforting message soon after saying:

"Kung may problema ka, pwede kitang tulungan."
(If you have a problem, I can help you.)

Uh.... are we suddenly the best of friends? Me and psychedelic_aya were laughing so hard when we read it. So weird! Did I sound so lost and helpless when I asked her who the hell she was? Who is this person, I wonder and what the hell does she want from me?

Thankfully, that was the last message. (I hope.)



Okay, so DSL's still malfunctioning. BayanTel people are supposed to come tomorrow before 2pm but I doubt that. *rolls eyes* I have music practice so they'd better be here on the said appointment. I still have a powerpoint presentation to do so they'd better get here soon. I was able to watch Grease though so at least I have a few information.

I feel a bit stressed out, I hope I can finish the things I have to do by tomorrow. Then there's that SAT thing too.

It doesn't help either that the fact that I'm gaining weight and I am shrinking haunts me to no end. (More disturbed on the shrinking part.) Yes dears, I am shrinking and no matter what people say, I believe that is possible. I've been having this insecurity for weeks now. (Believe me, my friends know, Especially psychedelic_aya whom I rant to about my height almost everyday. XD) And cyrptaviscus's taunts aren't helping either. *glares* Maybe if I eat less, I'd grow taller again? *is hopeful*

BAH HUMBUG--Never mind.

I'M DYING, dammit.


Will: (to crew member) What about Jack, I can't leave without him!
Jack: (runs to Will while chased by a huge mob of angry men) AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!
Will: Never mind, let's go.

--POTC 2 trailer

Mood: pessimistic
