Parent: What's that on ur eye? Oh no! Is it conjunctivitis? Kid: Noooo. It's just vaseline. Parent: Fffwhar?? Kid: You know, to make your eyelash grow longer. Parent: (In an exasperated tone and over-dramatic expression) Would you stop doing this weird things to yourself? You're beautiful already. Kid: No, I'm not. You're just saying that because you have to. You are my parent.
Honestly, my afterthoughts? Geeez... Vaseline can help my eyelash to grow longer? Should have tried that myself ^__^'' Seriously.. Kids nowadays..
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Anyone read this yet? It's like modern day version of the mysterious Atlantic City. Minus the documentation, without the global warming issue, and of course, no proper way of documentation plus internet to record and spread to the people of the other side of the world.
It's really scary. A wake up call anyone?

NEW DELHI – For nearly 30 years, India and Bangladesh have argued over control of a tiny rock island in the Bay of Bengal. Now rising sea levels have resolved the dispute for them: the island's gone.
New Moore Island in the Sunderbans has been completely submerged, said oceanographer Sugata Hazra, a professor at Jadavpur University in Calcutta. Its disappearance has been confirmed by satellite imagery and sea patrols, he said.
"What these two countries could not achieve from years of talking, has been resolved by global warming," said Hazra.
Scientists at the School of Oceanographic Studies at the university have noted an alarming increase in the rate at which sea levels have risen over the past decade in the Bay of Bengal.
Until 2000, the sea levels rose about 3 millimeters (0.12 inches) a year, but over the last decade they have been rising about 5 millimeters (0.2 inches) annually, he said.
Another nearby island, Lohachara, was submerged in 1996, forcing its inhabitants to move to the mainland, while almost half the land of Ghoramara island was underwater, he said. At least 10 other islands in the area were at risk as well, Hazra said.
"We will have ever larger numbers of people displaced from the Sunderbans as more island areas come under water," he said.
Bangladesh, a low-lying delta nation of 150 million people, is one of the countries worst-affected by global warming. Officials estimate 18 percent of Bangladesh's coastal area will be underwater and 20 million people will be displaced if sea levels rise 1 meter (3.3 feet) by 2050 as projected by some climate models.
India and Bangladesh both claimed the empty New Moore Island, which is about 3.5 kilometers (2 miles) long and 3 kilometers (1.5 miles) wide. Bangladesh referred to the island as South Talpatti.
There were no permanent structures on New Moore, but India sent some paramilitary soldiers to its rocky shores in 1981 to hoist its national flag.
The demarcation of the maritime boundary — and who controls the remaining islands — remains an open issue between the two South Asian neighbors, despite the disappearance of New Moore, said an official in India's foreign ministry, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak on international disputes.
Bangladesh officials were not available for comment Wednesday.

I suck .. .. at everything.
I cant do this, I cant do that.
Thankfully, I've got a bunch of good friends who ...
don't throw their temper at me don't scold me outright (even though I deserve it) don't criticize me don't show the expression of impatience at me.
They waited patiently, They helped me along (instead of leaving me to float and drown)
Still... I sometimes think I dun deserve all these.
I should ....... Do something about it.

I am very very glad that I did not succumb to the temptation of my very comfortable bed from 8.30PM to 10PM. I was this close to falling asleep. But I held on, persevered and here I am at 11.55PM... Totally awake now.
I did not go to bed. Instead, I read and re-read the bloody transcripts and came up with a fabulous idea that solved my shortage of words crisis. Now, I have the authority to cut passages that I dun like. Muahahahahahaha.
I get to finish another work that's way due.
I wanna improve on my guitar. But I'm also toooo cheapo to pay for a teacher.
Haley!!! Where are u!!! Come teach me guitar lez.
I've sunk into the Taylor Swift songs poison. I've got G, C, Em and D chords swimming around my head right now.
