Too plugged in

It is entirely possible that one's life is too reliant on modern communications when an SMS from Terz in Nias references a comment he left on my blog

--- Requiring me to check my blog for the comment before replying to Terz, since I haven't been online since I posted yesterday's entry

--- And then I caught up on all the new comments and had to SMS the best friend about one of them

--- Only before SMSing her, I had to check my email to verify something in an old email from her several months ago

--- And then I SMSed her, but since I was online, I might as well respond to all the other comments

--- Which required me to fix the misspelling of "a cappella" in the previous entry (thanks, perception!) and also look up a couple of links

--- And now that I've done all that, maybe I can finally eat my breakfast, which has been languishing on its plate for the past twenty minutes.

I'm going to go watch a DVD now, because that's at least offline.

Oh wait, first I have to go post a comment on Little Miss Drinkalot, which was also prompted by an SMS alert from Ondine that LMD's featured in the maiden entry on the Sunday Times's new blog-of-the-week column. I wonder if they realise how often LMD uses "fuck" and writes about delicate matters that wouldn't be acceptable among the pages of the grande dame of local media. Not that I'm saying you shouldn't read LMD --- you should and she's been on my blogroll for months now --- but you should read her despite the fact that the local paper told you so. I mean, the Sunday Times isn't exactly a paragon of taste, and people shouldn't give her a miss because she was tainted by their recommendation ...

Okay, now I'm going to go eat breakfast.

Oh yes this is about your tax problem... go to Singapore Statutes OnLine and reference chapter 134, the Income Tax Act. Look at para 77 onwards and you will see how tough it is to get anything back from them...

"Delicate matters" will be my catch phrase of the week.

morrigan --- Thanks! Not that I understand it ;)

LMD --- Amen, sister.

Hey Ho and a Whoopsy-do Nonino, TYM!

Thanks for leaving your mark on my blog!

*thought bubble of a leg lifting*


Erm... right.

Anyhoo, I concur and vouch for the factual statement that the Sunday Times is pretty tasteless!

I once had to slurp up a large succulent piece of tow-huay that plopped onto the Sunday Times (which I used in place of a dining table mat) and suffice to say, I had to eat quite a lot of words.

No good. No good.

*shakes head sadly*

Using the Straits Times to keep spillage off the furniture sounds about right! As long as it doesn't leave a smell or stain of newsprint...

Suffice to say, my stomach still feel queasy at the sight of Straits Times on the dining table.
