ISA = I Simply Arrest

This week, Malaysian Media History (MMH) seems to be the main focus of my college life. As if only a fews days' worth of lessons before the mid-terms wasn't enough, we had to finish 9 questions on Operasi Lalang, the May 13th Incident and Constitution Articles. Not to mention 2 presentations in 1 day. *sigh*

But anyway, while trying to answer a question on ISA, I found this really funny phrase:

"ISA = I Simply Arrest"

OMG!! It is so true! XD That's why people are trying to convince the government to get rid of the ISA (proper name is Internal Security Act) in Malaysia. And not only the people here. Apparently, the USA and other countries are quite interested in this topic as well.

Gosh, what time is it now? Oh, 12.34 p.m.
I only have less than half an hour to complete the last 2 questions AND try to remember something, anything about the stuff that I've been answering. Hip hip hooray! - NOT

See ya laterz, alligatorz!

Heroes Mania

...not me.
Just Rhea, Ruth, Nicole, Aaron and a few others. I think.

I only like Hiro Nakamura (Masi Oka) from Heroes coz he's super cute and has the amazing ability to control time.

Just imagine: There's this pain-in-the-ass Malaysian Media History assignment which we have to finish by Thursday AND a pesky English research topic for presentation on that day as well. *poof* We go back in time to Friday so there's plenty of time to finish both! Nice eh? XD

Of course, what's a blog post without pictures? So here he is...

My favourite time-travelling geek from Heroes! ^^

It was a dark and stormy night...

So after being handed a 500-word essay assignment by our dear English lecturer Ms Azizah last week (or was it the week before?), I finally got around to doing it at around 12.15 a.m. on the day it was due, which is today. Like I said before, procrastination dies really hard.

The title of the essay was pretty straightforward - "The Pen is Mightier than the Sword". I know some of the more... *ahem* clumsy people out there might just make a typo and link the 2nd and 3rd words together. XD But whatever - we're not talking about stationery size here.

The guy who coined the phrase was Sir Edward Bulwer-Lytton for his play Richelieu in 1839. Basically, it means that words or ideas have more influence than action or violence.

Sir Edward also thought up the phrase "It was a dark and stormy night..." which is the archetypal example of a florid, melodramatic style of fiction writing. I just found out that Snoopy is very fond of using it for his novel, which he [tries to] type while sitting on the roof of his kennel.

Peanuts anyone?

Oh well, off to English.

I'll see you later.
