    I am updating my blog because of guilt. Not because I actually have anything meaningful to say, but it is because of guilt. I feel guilty that the last update was weeks ago and my blog must have felt lonely and abandoned. It probably has self-esteem problems now thinking why it hasn’t been updated. It was probably wishing for an update.

    "Please God. Send a lightning bolt of inspiration and make Batdude update me. Just a simple text update would do. Clever Photoshop-ed pictures are not necessary. Just a few witty sentences would suffice. I can’t look another blog reader in the eye when they visit me and see that I have not been updated. I can’t stand that look of disappointment on their faces when they realise they have to find another site to visit or else they’d have to get back to work. Let me entertain them. Update me."

    Fortunately, I have a few things I need to get off my chest.

    I hear Malaysians are rude. Some survey by Reader’s Digest said so. Well, I do think Malaysians are rude to strangers. We are nice to people we know but we are generally rude to strangers or when the people we know whom we are usually nice to are not around. Then we might say rude things behind their back.

    Then there is this thing I have with the newspapers. More specifically, The Star. I lost all respect for The Star when they featured the story of Siti Nurhaliza’s relationship with Datuk K. Right there on the front page with a colour photo and all. For a moment there, I thought I had picked up the Malay papers. They may have finally found the cure for cancer but to the editors of the Malay papers, that piece of news will give way to something Siti or Mawi had done; whether true or not. Suddenly the local papers look like supermarket tabloids.

    And finally, why do Malaysians have this problem with detail. If you are going to dot your acronym or initials, DOT EACH LETTER YOU FUCKING IDIOT!

    It is
    and not

    See? The T isn’t dotted. Why? For the love of God, why?

    I am glad I finally got this off my chest. Carrying this around was giving me a hernia.

    In conclusion, Malaysians are rude, the local newspapers need to get their priorities right, dot your acronyms properly and never kick a fresh turd on a hot day.
