happy narcissistic voyeur


here we go again …

like most of us humans (if you’re a nonhuman + are another species of animal instead, like a donkey, tortoise, or whatever, then congratulations on learning how to read), i am always searching for answers. sometimes, i don’t even know the questions + yet i need answers. sometime i know the answers + i need the question, but that’s only when i’m watching who wants to be a millionaire (do bring your earplug if you wish to watch the show with me, thank you).

i mean, tell me, if someone’s really lying, are their pants really on fire?

if their pants are really on fire, would their knickers be on fire too?

are pants + knickers the same thing or did the person go ‘rambo’?

mind you, these are serious questions (do blame them at hanging out with married friends; excessive dosage is definitely detrimental to singletons’ mental health).

money likes money. ever put two fifty sen side by side? they look happy, don’t they? money likes to be with other money, it attracts its own.

how many people do you know who have ‘penny jars’ at home? my brother has got one. amazing how those babies fill up (even after i secretly dip my fingers in it). it ain’t by accident yo!

they have a scientific (all forms of currency actually have an electromagnetic attraction to each other) and spiritual necessity that most of us aren’t aware of; to be with each other. while there is no ‘hard’ data to back this up, it is painfully obvious to those of us who ain’t got it that the ones who do keep getting more! ever heard of the saying, money makes money? (there’ll normally be someone’s logic behind a saying)

another saying goes, money can’t buy you happiness. don’t believe them, definitely a misrepresentation from bitter people who ain’t got it. if you were found guilty in possession of ‘syabu’ (what’s that? how does it look like? i see a blank picture in my head when i heard the word) the punishment would be either pay a fine of rm 100k or face a jail term of 5 years. don’t tell me you’d find happiness in doing the jail term? well, unless that’s your thing.

then again, not everyone can find happiness (with or without money). what’s ironic, the pursuit of happiness can be one of the main sources of unhappiness itself. should you pursue ‘happiness’ at the risk of being unhappy? should you postpone enjoying 'happiness’ now, so that you’ll enjoy a total bliss like ‘happiness’ later?

if you ask me, this is your life, right here, right now, it don’t wait for you, y’all!

have a great Thursday, peeps! i might not though, 'cos i hate numbers. eurgh!

*back to work*

when i was temping at a school in aberdeen, the proper word for knickers is pants, thus, we had to use the word with the children when referring to knickers.

thats y now we call them "panty".

logical eh? ;)

p.s. i like that pic!

mental muz said...

wow weggie, that is so deep. i never have thought of that before. if money attracts money, can i put rm1 in your pocket and expect u to give rm2 tomorow? can la can la

Erra said...

muz

you must think i have rm 1 to spare to take the risk of investing rm 1 into my pocket + expect a return of rm 2 the next day. if that's your only rm 1 would you give it to me if you know my pocket's empty?

shall i add, you must look like you have money to attract more money.

ha?

in the pursuit of happiness, money can be one of the contributing factors in helping you find happiness, not arguing it has the absolute power over happiness

alamak ... masa makan cheesecake memang like heaven ... after ... harks!

i hate numbers too but there's nothing like counting money - your own money. Unless of course it causes severe headache because it won't friggin balance, and you end up saying "dude! where's my money?"
