Lording it over the internet

Zixian pointed me to this blog – http://www.lordsoftheblog.net. As she said, it is quite amusing how the 70-plus members of the House of Lords are more active in blogging and reaching out to the public than our beloved local MPs. P65-blog, wherefore art thou? An impersonator has taken your place, reclaim thy honour.

There are so many things wrong with the p65 blog that I don’t even know where to start. Let’s just start with technical details. Continue reading

They Tried To Make Me Go To Moots…

But I say No No No
Yes I been practicing, but when I go up there
You won’t know, know, know

I ain’t got the time
And if Eleanor thinks I am fine
They tried to make me go to moots
I won’t go go go

I rather be at home with Grey’s
I ain’t got 17 days
Coz there’s nothing, nothing you can teach me
That I can’t learn from Mr Neumann

Didn’t get a lot in lecture
But I know it don’t come in a snap

They Tried To Make Me Go To Moots
But I say No No No
Yes I been practicing, but when I go up there
You won’t know, know, know

I ain’t got the time
And if Eleanor thinks I am fine
They tried to make me go to moots
I won’t go go go

The man said, what do you think you doing here?
I said, I got no idea
I’m gonna, i’m gonna lose my GPA
So I always keep a DVD near

Said, I just think you’re stressed
Kick me, yeah baby
And go away

I’m tryin to make me go to moots
I said no, no, no
Yes I been practicing, but when I go up there
You wont know, know, know

I don’t ever wanna moot again
I just, ooo, I just need a break
Im not gonna spend 2 weeks
Have everyone think I am going to be a lawyer

It’s not just that it is timed
It’s just til this ego is re-inflated

They Tried To Make Me Go To Moots
But I say No No No
Yes I been practicing, but when I go up there
You won’t know, know, know

I ain’t got the time
And if Eleanor thinks I am fine
They tried to make me go to moots
I won’t go go go

For those of you who still didn’t get it… a very obvious parody of Amy Winehouse’s Rehab.

Because we all need to laugh at ourselves

I make fun of everyone – that’s my thing. Women, men, lesbians, gay men, Indians, attached people, single people, Chinese, Christians, dogs, bisexuals, law students, lawyers, homophobes, gay activists, judges, fundamentalists, anyone you can think of, all within the limits of hate speech and defamation. In fact, the people I make fun of the most, are people who are like me, if you have read my past entries here and on Sayoni.

At the end of the day in this fucked-up world, we all really need to laugh at ourselves. And at the moment, the fjoke happens to be the short terrorist with a limp who escaped while going to the toilet, and has a begging-to-be-made-fun-of name.

So loosen up.

Voldemort in Court: Chapter 1

This series was inspired tangentially by the post I wrote, the comparative analysis of Harry Potter, the Holocaust and homophobia. I don’t write fanfiction, this is my virgin foray into the genre. But what happens here is so far removed from the Harry Potter world that I don’t think it even qualifies as one, but rather a parody of real life using well-loved characters. Disclaimer: I do not own these characters, and every last wand belongs to J.K Rowling and Warner Bros.

Do NOT read ahead if you have not read Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows yet. Continue reading

Quotable Quotes

People who put my blog on their RSS reader probably don’t realise it, but I occasionally update the sidebar with quotable quotes from people around me, or from TV shows. I’m going to start posting them here when I get a new quote, from now on.

Current quote:

“My parents don’t want me to date him because he’s 2 years younger, in NS, and from a non-branded JC. They kinda expect me to marry a surgeon who wears a bowtie.” – L

Quotes from the past:

“Finding a passionate AND stable relationship is like finding a free Hermes bag at the Great Singapore Sale” – Me.

“There is a girl who has so much love to give that she chooses to give it to guys and girls.” – Domenico, on Tila Tequila

“Some relationships are a common mistake, which are voidable in equity.” – Unattributable quote from LAWR TG 1

“The Beattitudes are to Ten Commandments, like equity to common law, in supplementing the harshness.” – Greg

And I can’t remember the rest. And I apologise for any misquotes – this is all from memory.

Addendum: Thanks to Rachel, I remembered these two:

“So, remember, it is cheaper to kill a child than an adult, and it is cheaper to kill someone rather than injure them. So if you want your spouse dead, it is best to hope that he or she gets run over by a car. But I recommend you don’t kill your husband or wife yourself, the courts don’t like that.” -Prof Fordham, in a lecture about Remedies

“So these hostesses from the Ashiba lounge are obliged to eat go eat ice kachang with the customers afterwards. They can’t say they don’t like green ice kachang or something, or choose the customer to eat the ice kachang with.” – Teri Kahn, on Kureoka Entertainments case.

My Will

I’m back in the library again – after having literally lived here during LAWR Research Binder season last sem. *sobs* This time, I have to look up inheritance laws and family law, of all things.

Makes me very conscious about making my own will before a truck runs me over, but apparently, legally I am an “infant” until I reach 21 years old, and my will won’t be valid. Not that there is much to leave anyone.

So, I, Pleinelune, being of sound mind, broke, and not many worldly possessions, and of full knowledge that this will is nonsense and legally invalid, leave my money to Sayoni, my DVDs to Irene [so that she’ll finally watch some TV shows], my cosmetics to Liv and Anj [they are one of the few people who will have use for it], my textbooks to my sister[though they will be outdated by the time she goes to law school], and my laptop(s) to N [because she needs a new one], and my Adidas bag to Z[upon her request]. The rest of my possessions, including clothes, can be donated to Salvation Army.

And this is my first will and testament.

Addendum: Upon additional requests and further thought, I am leaving my old bras, iWork’08 and Adobe Suite to Zee. And Liv and Anj will get all my earrings as well.
