The scanner has been residing on the computer table for quite some time,on the very same spot since it was bought some years back. It has been neglected and untouched for quite a while. We haven't been in touch with it's health conditions. A moment ago, I needed it's service. I turned on the scanner just to find it not responding. Then I tought it might be the switch problem so I switched it to another switch just to find it still dormant. I tried unplugging all the plugs and re-plugged them just to realised that the scanner has ...departed. It has breath it's last without us even realising that. Gone are it's glory days of capturing images in colour. All that is left is a legacy to be reflected on by the all-in-one copier machines. So long Umax. May you rest in peace.

Bend Over

Was at a beach restaurant when something caught my attention. The most perfect bend. I couldn't quite figure out why this person's digging a hole. Perhaps he's trying to lay some eggs.

La Cockoracha

Two days ago, when I was about to enter the toilet, I had the freakiest encounter. I turned on the lights opened the door only to be greeted by the scariest thing. It came running towards me happily. Upon seeing it, I gave the loudest shout that shook the entire house. Yuck. Of all things, to be greeted by a six legged creature. Wonder why this creatures exists and how they managed to live for centuries. Filthy and disgusting pests.

Feeling rather relieved today as a great load has been lifted off my shoulder. Have been under immense pressure for the past few weeks. When it was all finally over all I wanted was to plop on the bed and sleep. But sleep is beyond reach. After my paper, instead of being reunited with my pillow, I was whisked off to tea. I was so exhausted, I hardly ate. Upon reaching home I thought I could finally doze off. But to my dismay, I couldn't. So I logged on to the net. Then was off to dinner. Which I hardly ate as well. Then went round town searching for food. Was dozing off in the car. Didn't get anywhere near slumberland either. Got home, I ran up to my bed but to no avail, still can't sleep. So went downstairs to watch tv. Still can't close my eyes. So I'm writing this entry.
