Some fluff for today; your analyses invited

Was reading today's Dilbert comic strip and totally enjoyed it! Would post it here but that would so violate copyrights :-( Here's an attempt to capture the magic:
    Pointy-haired boss is at a meeting/discussion with other staff. Box #1: He points out that the poor hapless employees would have noticed that their jobs are "hideous nightmares of frustration and underpayment". Box #2: "But what you don't know is that every company is exactly the same". Box#3 shows pointy-haired boss' thought bubble "Reduce employee turnover: Check".
Yes, I find that f*cking hilarious. Been on the receiving end of that kind of management brilliance way too often!

On another note, here's a H/T to Samantha Burns for this really great shop-at-home moron. I *think* I would notice a difference between a moth and a horse; wouldn't you? Check it out here.

Another H/T, this time to Spud for this cool video. Now, why can't gyms & fitness centers have something like this, it would certainly keep me entertained instead of trudging along to nowhere on the treadmill used in the conventional manner. Curiosity piqued? Check out the video here.

In other news - last night there was this really weird dream about a backed-up toilet *full* of, errrr, "logs" including a big floater... and something looking like a log-and-hair-combo but was alive and crawling slithering across the bathroom floor towards me/us [reminded me of something out of the Addams Family]. Kosh was all "What the hell is *that* thing?", and we both hop out of the bathroom and close [we didn't slam it shut, we just closed it. Does that mean anything?] the door well before the thing reaches us [which is strange considering the bathroom is tiny!]. I actually scream in this dream [I so do NOT do that in real life maaah], but not at the crawly thingy; I gave out a scream at the discovery of the backed-up toilet cos I was gonna take a dump when I lifted the seat and saw the surprise. LOL. Anyways, anyone wanna analyse all that for me?

And on that note... have a good day!

And try not to think of logs, ya?


Oh, one more thing: the cat puked up a present for me this morning too. Grrrr!


  1. Funny. Loved the horse/butterfly/moth guy. Who is he to question the teleprompter? If it says it's a horse, then it MUST be a horse!

    Oh, and I'm pretty sure you can provide a link to the Dilbert strip without violating copyright rules, you just can't paste the cartoon itself on your blog.

  2. Hello Lynne... Oh the life of a Jobless Bum lol .. Hope you are Keeping well and best wishes from United Kingdom ;-))

  3. I thought that Dilbert strip was a SCREAM!!

Noritta Samsudin: Case closed? WTF?

I was amazed to read that Datuk Mustapha Abdullah, the city police chief considers the Noritta Samsudin murder case closed. (Click here and here for some articles)

In July 2004, one En Hanif Basree Abd Rahman was acquitted and discharged by the court on the murder of Noritta. Of course, the months leading up to that ruling made for gross reading in the local newspapers… Early on I decided to just not read the papers, as it was obvious that the murder victim, who seems to have been a high-class callgirl, was the one being judged. I’m certain I did the right thing, for as time went by, more and more people started complaining about the level of detail being reported by the papers. Details about tears in the vagina, and age thereof seemed to be the focus of the court, rather than on the clients. Then again, from early on it was rumoured that many VIPs were among the victim’s “customers”, hence the blinkered focus on the victim rather than her clients. And the clients who…

BOH Seri Songket flavored teas

For many a year, boxes of BOH's Seri Songket flavored tea have served as handy buah tangans for relatives and friends in Switzerland and the USA, providing exotic teas in an exquisite bit of packaging. I'd not tasted any of these teas for myself, though, so this time around on my trip to Malaysia I made it a point to get me a few boxes of my own.

I picked three: Earl Grey with Tangerine; Passion Fruit; and Lime & Ginger; and have tasted two out of the three so far. According to Moomykin, the unlikely Lychee Rose combination is surprisingly good, so I'll grab that next time. Other flavors available in theory are Cinnamon; Clove & Cardamom; Mango; and Vanilla.

Review of the Seri Songket Passion Fruit flavored tea:
I've had this twice so far.

When you open the sachet, the smell/flavor is rather overpowering. But it all disappears when the teabag is steeped in hot water.

The first time, I used one bag to make 4 cups of tea. It seemed a touch watery, and tasted j…

It's been a while...

It's been so long.

Here's what's been going on. I had one kid, then another. Thing One / Nova was my first ever exposure to a kid. I'd never changed a diaper until he came along, and even then I deferred to the hubs or the NICU nurses before I forced myself to overcome that ?fear?.

He is my first. So I always wondered during tough times, was it just me? Or was it also him?

Turns out, it was us both.

He starts First Grade this August. He's currently being (re-)evaluated for an IEP (Individualised Education Plan). ADHD. ODD. ASD. SPD. The journey to these labels was a long one. And still ongoing because I don't think we have it quite right yet. But the labels help. I fought against getting labels. But now I seek them. Anything to help understand. Never in a million years would I have foreseen me medicating my kids. Yet here I am, seeking new meds, getting him a genetic test that should help identify which medications should help him, since the usual suspects see…
