Knock my head, please

I'm freaking out.
Jargon.
Even the most common terms and symbols
look like a jargon.
Inscrutable.

Mentally disturbed
Physically petrified
Spiritually dismayed
Perfect combination.

Had a bad dream last night
I couldn't get myself in time
I didn't miss it
but I certainly lost it.
I couldn't get it done
and I thought I was done for.

I woke up all sweaty.

FIFA 2010 Kick-Off Review by Mimi Si Kaki Bangku

June 12th marked the beginning of FIFA World Cup 2010. And tonight, I'm going to give you a brief review of what my housemate, Carrie and I observed during the kick-off match between Mexico and South Africa just now.

Here are the highlighted players and the short comments on how they behave or look throughout the match:

Mexico

3 – A player with the face of a domestic abuser. *Muka garang. Takut takut >.<*

4 – Marquez. A cute player. In the second half of the game he scored a goal then sucked his thumb like a baby just before no. 17 hugged him from the back. *Huh? Kenapa perlu hisap jari?*

9 – Carrie's favourite .He looked scary when he missed the ball but he seemed to improve over time. *Here's Carrie's response - I want number nine!*

11- C.Vella. A cute player. Mine. *lol* Too bad he did an off-side in the first half and was substituted in the whole 2nd half. I wish to see him perform even more.

12 – Another cute guy that Carrie likes. *When I asked why she favourited number nine then she said oh, nak like both number 9 and 12 lah. Dua dua cute*

17 – Santos. “Budak kecik” in our term but he wasn't bad at all. The opposition seemed to mark him a lot since he's a little aggressive. The first yellow card receiver in FIFA 2010 history!.

Goalkeeper – He looked pretty relax during the first half since the South African didn't attack so much but once on the second half he freaked out like someone shocked with a stun gun. *Gaya sangat gelabah okey* . That was a near miss goal anyway.

South Africa

I cannot distinguish the players except the team icon, Pienaar. For some obvious reason. *Hehe..*
All of them have the rugged appearance. Even stronger than the opposition. *this is a compliment by the way*

The other part of the game that we liked was the Slow Motion part, be it a replay or merely a glimpse of the players. On several occasions Carrie and I laughed at something like these:

a) The slow motion on one of the front benchers (possibly a coach or a manager) showed his Very Wide Mouth out of frustration over a missed goal. I was awed. *besarnya mulut die*

b)The slow motion on one of the screaming player made him look like a fish. In Carrie's word , “MPK(Majlis Perbandaran Kuantan) fish”

Overall of the game was not too bad . We had quite a fair result especially as a kick-off (1-1).Carrie and I especially admire the kick of no.4,Marquez because it looked better than the plain goal of South Africa. And yes, your hypothesis is true → We supported Mexico because they have cute guys :P albeit I did feel like rooting for the host team. But they were just too defensive.

I apologize for any disappointment over the review and especially for the slow motion part, I want to clearly state that we did not purposely try to laugh or offend anyone. It was instantaneous and I took it as a spice of our celebrated FIFA 2010.

You may also feel this review is not helpful or insightful at all but thank you for reading anyway. You've helped me to go through another sleepless night . i.e I tried to sleep earlier but my mind couldn't stop narrating this review and after 1 hour, I gave up sleeping.

The Road Not Taken (1915)


by : Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth.

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same.

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.


My response:

I shouldn't sigh
Though I've long wondered
Whether I should follow my Dream
Or to re-evaluate my strength
Because I may not notice
My strength may lay somewhere
Beyond what I Want to do
But at what I do Best
And what I should care
Is to take it to my Liking
