i hope you dance

farah wants to say that she has fallen in love But at the wrong moment-

bahh i'm heartbroken.

Let us go then, you and I,
When the evening is spread out against the sky....

And indeed there will be time
For the yellow smoke that slides along the street,
Rubbing its back upon the window panes;
There will be time, there will be time
To prepare a face to meet the faces that you meetT
here will be time to murder and create,
And time for all the works and days of hands
That lift and drop a question on your plate;
Time for you and time for me,
And time yet for a hundred indecisions,
And for a hundred visions and revisions,
Before the taking of a toast and tea.

....

Do I dare
Disturb the universe?

...

I have seen the moment of my greatness flicker,
And I have seen the eternal Footman hold my coat, and snicker,
And in short, I was afraid.

...

And would it have been worth it, after all,
Would it have been worth while,
After the sunsets and the dooryards and the sprinkled streets,
After the novels, after the teacups, after the skirts that trail along the floor--
And this, and so much more?--
It is impossible to say just what I mean!

...

I grow old ... I grow old ...
I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled.
Shall I part my hair behind? Do I dare to eat a peach?
I shall wear white flannel trousers, and walk upon the beach.
I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each.

I do not think that they will sing to me.

...

We have lingered in the chambers of the sea
By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown
Till human voices wake us, and we drown.

Excerpts from The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock (TS Eliot)

A Tribute to VJC 157

can i just begin by saying when i read the previous post i thought it was michelle who posted. ha. corrie you almost sounded like her. :P

anyway. here is my lovely tribute to my lovely PW group: VJC 157. :)

from reality TV, to looks, to wanting things quickly and finally to this; INSTANT food, we have certainly come a long way. i'm not about to go all mushy and all that, but i am about to say this: thanx guys. For because of you i will not be complaining right now about PW and how irritating it is. for once, someone is saying something positive about PW. haha :P

well rest of A52, dont you think it's amazing how you got into the PW group you're in? i know mr chew i think sorta allowed 55 to choose their own groups. so i'm just pretty curious about how liew put us into our groups. haha. like isnt it amusing that kenneth and viv got put in the same group and yuhui and vane are the ones there to be mediators? or like how one race was put with another and when standing together, esmonde, rashez, grace and rohana look like a zebra crossing? :P

i think at the end of the day, the most amazing thing about PW is how we managed to come up with something out of nothing. how even with digressing, procrastinating and slacking generally, we still managed to come up with commendable projects that at least LOOK like they have substance. ha. hmm ... i speak for my group only. i dunno about the others. haha :P

so i guess this wasnt a tribute to VJC 157. it was a tribute to PW. ha. for the first time on this blog something positive is being said about 'peedouble-yew' or 'peetuptew' ... hmmm the government should pay me to publish this. ha. :P

GPF tomoro. for those of you who do not need to slog over it tonight: banish youself. :P

Godeatgod tomoro. yay. :)

k i am going to disappear.

keeping the blog alive,
ting. :)

peedoubleyew-ing.

Oh yes, we shall fight its evil clutches. Tomorrow and tomorrow, and it will all be over. Here's to general hedonism (movie marathons, chocolate buffets, sleepovers, parties, having TSD worldwide because of all our simultaneous holidays). Ah yes.

But for now, let's just maintain our survival, shall we? :)

And do remember godeatgod and Immaculate Misconception, which seem promising enough.

[square brackets belong to me!]

hmmm going by michelle's post on how you can tell whose post is whose..i shall make you guys guess as to my not-so-hidden identity.

yay.

actually, come to think of it, it seems pretty obvious already.

anyway, i realised how central/integral* (pick a word) school is in my life. so much so that when today my group decided not to meet for pw i am at a loss to the endless possibilities facing me on how to spend my free time.

it was such a wonderful morning and then *poof* the clouds came and covered the blue blue sky so i spent the day reading. and folding clothes. and peeling almonds.

am now waiting for replies from people to go out..

gah.

ok i suppose you all have guessed who i am by now..


hahahahaha.

ok will stop now.

yes soon.















very soon.




i promise.










see.








i told you i promised.












i didn't lie.













nope.














not at all.














will someone please switch off the air conditioning?














thank you...
