a short note-again

this is just to say that I've deleted the followers feature not because I hate the followers, far from that. I just find it a bit show offy....me being me proud self, see? And I trust that you guys are reading my blog...you guys comment so much on the cbox, I can scroll down now, and I have to keep scrolling and scrolling, haha.

Love it that you guys love my entries, it really encouraging. Would you read my articles in the newspapers or magazine should I ever become a journalist or an article writer or whatever? haha, like that's ever gonna happen...

The Shocking News

I'm utterly bamboozled, puffled and, well, shocked. Bamboozled is a word, or should be one, in my opinion. After all, them englishy people put the word "googled" in.....
Puffled is a combination of puzzled and baffled...at least that's how I feel it should add up.

Back to the bamboozling news, well, it was that I went for a chess competition. Daerah level, mind you. Yes, it is shocking because I had never went for one in my life (even though I had plenty of chances last year and the year before).

The next puffling news is that I didn't lose all the matches as I predicted. I won three, lost three. That is shocking because I only know how to move them pieces, no tactics, no strategies, nada. The only inspiration I get is through Narnia books (they do discuss battle strategies sometimes), and the Lord of the Rings movies. Well, and recently the Redwall books, the ones that made me go 'yes, sah!' and such? Know them? nevermind....

Another shocking news is that I ranked the 16th out of the 40 girls in me category ( I think I gave away enough information for a stalker to come after me now...oh dear). I though that I wouldn't be even on that honourable list.

But the biggest, most ginormous news(gigantic+enormous), the perfect whopper, the sizzling stunner, the bamboozling befuddlement, the humongous hullabaloo, the unspeakable joy, the dumbfounded moment, the wizard wog-snappit, the cannibalistic effect, the jack-out-the-box surprise, the straight-into-your-gut news, the......ok, ok, just indulging myself there....I don't really know what wog-snappit means....

THE SHOCKING NEWS-MY TEAM GOT SECOND PLACE.

*AWED SILENCE, IN CAPITAL LETTERS
*

Ok, so you're wondering what's the big deal. Well, in our school's chess-playing history, we're never really successful, especially the girls. The highest we got is third place (for girls). So this is PECAH REKOD, OK?

Sorry for the capital letters, I'm just so STUNNED.

Thanks to all those in my team, YOU WERE WHAT MADE THIS HAPPEN, not me, the bumbling idiot. Though I have to say I'm pretty impressed with some of the moves I made on that day. I did the classic, king-stuck-in-the-corner-checkmate once (do you even call it that?). I thought that I could never do that, never in my life. I'm so bad at chess. In fact, I was so bad that the first person that I battled with had to tell me that I checkmated her. I was surprised...till the point that I let out a loud 'HUH' for the entire hall to hear. In 15 minutes I checkmated her? No way!

But still, it was really mostly because of my team that we all did so well, so really, I'm UTTERLY, TERRIBLY, DOWN-ON-MY-KNEES-GRATEFUL for making my first and last experience of a chess tournament a memorable one.

Also, HEARTIEST CONGRATULATIONS to the under 18 boys, got third place, and their competitors were much, much better. Salutation to Dinesh in his last game, that was jaw-dropping, supercool style, man! Kudos to Yuven too, you were SPECTACULAR! First place and representing us in NEGERI level, wow!!

ps. bamboozled is a word in the dictionary after all. yay!

A short note

Guess I will be making a lot of short notes from now on....like little red flags on the map to show you where I am. Let's make this interesting, shall we?

Commader: Progress report!

The Lady Knight (or the bumbling idiot, take your pick): Evenin' sah! Soldier currently forgin' off an attack from them Homework pests, sah! No sight of reinforcements, and 'fraid I'm commin' down with a stinkin' annoyin' flu, sah!

Commander: Anything else, young 'un?

TLK/BI: More bad news, sah! The soldiers are being somewha' confused, sah! Some of ' em don't really know what's happening concerning the mission Prefect Camp, meself included, sah! Also, scounts ahead have found that a charge of debate is cummin' 'round , sah, and it looks bad, sah!

Commander: Think you can handle it, young 'un?

TLK/BI: Will do me best, sah, always do. But the chances of survivn' this are as thin as a rake, sah. Lord SPM still has the upper hand, and the blasted examinations are attacking fro' the other end, sah. We're surrounded, sah.

Commander: No time to jaw then, young 'un. Get back to position, pray hard, and swing them sharp sword harder! We will not give in to them confounded vermin and evil beasts! Down an' at 'em!

TLK/BI: Yes, sah! They'll taste our cold steel, and we won't let 'em go home, no sah!

confundations and blasterations!

For the sake of some pestering people, i will leave a short note to say that i will not be leaving a short note...which in turn makes me realize that i have just left a short note even though i said i won't....

Yes, crap. I know. Fine. I'll update. But the next time someone asks me to update, I'm cancelling this blog. I mean it.

School is taking its toll on me.....I'm dying to read a good book in one sitting and visit the library everyday but I can't. I can't borrow books either, which promptly crushes my dream of wanting to read all the books in the library before SPM....last I checked, I had about, say, ten thousand over?? Well, it looks that way. So now, whenever I have the time, I run in just to have the air of books around me, that smell of stories that tug at my heart, begging to be read. Of course, it's painful to say no and walk out, but it would be a lot worse if I didn't go in at all. At least I know that I could grab one of them if I wanted, get what I mean? No, you don't. Sigh.

What else? Interschool CF is next week...I'm not as involved as I suspected.Chess competition is next week, and I'm more involved that I suspected. Prefect duties....I have to say that I feel like I'm not doing much....the boys are...feel so sorry for them but they don't seem to want my help so what can I do? Or maybe they do want my help, and I didn't notice. Well then ,sorry!

Teachers are getting on my nerves......2 of them especially. I know I'm not suppose to hate people, and frankly I don't exactly hate them. I just find them excruciatingly annoying and they just epitomize everything that boils me blood....though I can make allowance for one due to insanity, I suppose. Ok, ok, sorry, I shouldn't talk like that....not very good of me.

Well, since my father is yelling at me to get offline, I will hereby use it as a perfect excuse to end my update as I have nothing else to say.
