Facebook Has Dunnit! Again!

Anyone feels like setting up an online social networking service to rival Facebook? Their latest tweak, the disabling of the “use Facebook as page” option has caused much unhappiness among business owners and other people who rely on Facebooking to promote their products.

If something easier to use than Facebook turns up now, I am sure those business owners will be happy to shift their allegiance and advertising fees to the better networking service.

For sharing your rejection letters.

I never knew you were rejected by publishers before. I had always thought all bestselling writers were accepted the first time round and good stuff was good stuff no matter which publishing firm you went to.

So when I received my second rejection letter, I was ready to believe I had no talent as a writer. And I thought maybe I should just resign myself to working as a security guard for the rest of my life.

But now, I feel better about the 2 rejection letters I have received so far. There probably will be more rejection letters coming my way, but I shall remain hopeful.

Which Martial Arts Style Would Be Most Effective?

In a zombie apocalypse.

Obviously, I know guns would be most effective, followed by more primitive forms of ranged weaponry and followed by close-range weapons. But I think martial arts has its place. For example, something like Krav Maga or Jeet Kune Do would be useful against fellow survivors.

I am voting for Jeet Kuen Do by the way. It has some really effective long range kicks. Grappling styles like Brazilian Jiu-jitsu  is totally out. I wouldn’t want to get too close to zombies or survivors who might be infected.

Rejection Letter #2

I just received my second rejection letter from a publisher.

“Unfortunately, the piece is not for us and we will not be publishing your book.”

That’s from Publisher #4.

Two down and two more chances left. I was already rejected by Publisher #1 last month, so I hope I will receive a favourable response from either Publisher #2 or #3.

Monster Parents

Let’s talk about monster parents.

Like the dick head who screwed me over today for no good reason.

In order to facilitate the smooth running of things during school dismissal, we have certain rules in place.

For example, to prevent traffic congestion, we do not allow parents to drive into the school compound to pick up their kids. They have to wait outside the school gates or park by the roadside if they came in their cars, and wait patiently for their offsprings to be let out. No exception unless there is a vehicular emergency or if it is raining.

And almost all parents know to toe the line, except for one jackass. Earlier today, while my colleagues and I were busy with crowd control duties, this jackass drove up to the barrier gate and demanded to be let in to see the principal. Read the rest of this entry
