Lemme see if backdating works.

http://geminianeyes.com is up and running!
I still need to do a few tweaks here and there because the way the category bar comes up isn’t to my liking, but it looks pretty cool so far. What do you think?

Selamat Harijadi, Malaya…

I did not really do much last weekend. There were many thoughts, but the one I keep thinking of revolved around boss. More specifically, the fact that I seemed to be over his death. It might steal over me in vulnerable moments, but by and by… I think boss would have given me a kick in IRC if I’d was sad over his passing. For those close to him though, the mourning has just begun.
I sent him an SMS on Sunday though I know he would never read it. There’s a certain person in IRC that I’m worried for… She seems to be putting up a brave front, but it’s affecting her very badly. It’s not the dead I’m worried about now (as harsh as that may sound) but rather the living. Most have someone to hold on to, but she… she’s taking it all on her own. She says she’s alright, but anyone can see that she’s not. She’s got a very childlike-mind process, and well… Some recover from blows like these, others don’t.
She’s resilient though, and that’s all I can say. It’s held her up in good stead, and I hope it does for a long time.
Gloomy things aside, I’ve been getting Pratchett books from the local library. It’s not as extensive as I’d hoped, but better than nothing. Thud! was rather cute (finished it yesterday) and have just started on The Truth, which should delight the Psuedo-journalist in me. Wit is much needed now. Not angst.
Some members need to be smacked. -_-”

The Internet is a wonderful thing. Or a Bad thing, depending on your point of view.
Word spreads fast, especially in the IRCFiesta community. I’ve heard of people banding together, getting together, but not till yesterday did I really appreciate it. Not till yesterday did I really appreciate what Rylands had created and unknowingly nurtured. I’ve not seen people banding together so quickly and so efficiently for a reason. It’s the first time I’ve seen a trip with purpose carried out so fast. It’s the first time I’ve seen people gather money so quickly. It’s the first time I’ve seen true sorrow.
To all those left behind…
In memory of him.

Short exercise before I begin writing again. 175 words.
She hung on for dear life.
The motorbike they rode was a kapchai, a small 4-stroke motorbike that required the motorcyclist and his pillion rider to sit up straight. Hunching may not have been a good idea, as it would affect the centre of gravity. In any case, she hung on to him as they sped along the empty roads to his house. There was only one thought in her head, “I got to ride on his motorbike before the end.” If it ended now, she would not have minded it at all. From time to time, one of his hands would leave the handlebars and caress her linked hands on his stomach. It was a comforting gesture, and she responded by squeezing his hand gently when he did so.
It was a silly thing to be happy about, but she was. She was finally there, with him, holding him, and from his actions, being loved by him.
An everyday act, done with sincerity, can say more than a million flowers could ever do.

What planet goes through their retrogade cycle the fastest?
My Planet. My Form 2 class. Mizhuno’s planet.

Nat of Jelas.Info was remanded late last week as the police apparently wanted to “speak about the Internet.” Three Special Branch officers (sort of CIA, except they’re domestic cops) came for him. He was released two days ago.
It’s suspected that Nat was remanded because of his support for Tian Chua during the Najib-Altantunya picture fiasco and for his ties to Keadilan. Either way, I know I have to be careful, as I found out yesterday that one of my uncles works for Keadilan as their Puchong Info Chief or something, I think.
And we all know what I think about Najib. ^^;
More later when I’m not feeling so sleepy. Also, HP7 leaked. I’ve had a good look at the book, and I’m inclined to think that it’s the real deal.

Your view on yourself:
You are down-to-earth and people like you because you are so straightforward. You are an efficient problem solver because you will listen to both sides of an argument before making a decision that usually appeals to both parties.
The type of girlfriend/boyfriend you are looking for:
You are a true romantic. When you are in love, you will do anything and everything to keep your love true.
Your readiness to commit to a relationship:
You are ready to commit as soon as you meet the right person. And you believe you will pretty much know as soon as you might that person.
The seriousness of your love:
You are very serious about relationships and aren’t interested in wasting time with people you don’t really like. If you meet the right person, you will fall deeply and beautifully in love.
Your views on education
Education is very important in life. You want to study hard and learn as much as you can.
The right job for you:
You have plenty of dream jobs but have little chance of doing any of them if you don’t focus on something in particular. You need to choose something and go for it to be happy and achieve success.
How do you view success:
You are afraid of failure and scared to have a go at the career you would like to have in case you don’t succeed. Don’t give up when you haven’t yet even started! Be courageous.
What are you most afraid of:
You are afraid of having no one to rely on in times of trouble. You don’t ever want to be unable to take care of yourself. Independence is important to you.
Who is your true self:
You are mature, reasonable, honest and give good advice. People ask for your comments on all sorts of different issues. Sometimes you might find yourself in a dilemma when trapped with a problem, which your heart rather than your head needs to solve.
