I Write Like...

Found out about this website that analyzes your writing style and then gives you a result of which famous author you write like.  And here's the result I got:


I write like
J. D. Salinger
I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

Voilla!  Truth is, I did this a few times using samplings of different posts from this very blog with varying results.  Apparently, I also write like Cory Doctorow (got him a few times!), Ray Bradbury, Margaret Atwood and James Joyce.  I never heard of Cory Doctorow and Ray Bradbury before - though a search on Amazon proved that they are two authors probably worth looking into.  I know that Margaret Atwood and James Joyce wrote classics but I never read either of them.  So after trying the analyzer a few times and using my contemplative post Of Roses, Trampolines and Molecules, I came up with J.D. Salinger.  I liked The Catcher in the Rye, so I'm sticking to this one!

I guess I was wishing for results saying I wrote more like JK Rowling or Sophie Kinsella or Elizabeth Gilbert.  Well, you can't win em all, eh? I guess the most accurate would be - I write like I do.

Try it out -who do you write like?

Crunchtime!

It's bayar puasa crunchtime! Amazing how like everything else, you always think that there WILL be time.  You start out with good intentions but end up doing things at the last minute anyway.  That's me, most of the time.  Pejam celik, pejam celik and wow, Ramadhan is upon us again in about two weeks time.  I just sent in my kain for baju raya (cum baju pergi orang kahwin) last week - the tailor said she wasn't accepting any more orders but made an exception for my lovely (and ever so persuasive) mom.  And whilst she took my measurements - which I am sure have gone up for the fact that I have been such a glutton in the past months/past year perhaps - we chatted about how time flies and how Ramadhan and Raya are so early this year.  And after puasa, there'll be the raya month and then it's the wedding months! Oh didn't I tell you... the brother-in-laws are all (well, there's only two of em) getting hitched. So October, November and December are all gonna be about weddings in the household.  More girls in the family - hurrah!

Just read this article on Syaaban, this lovely month preceding Ramadhan.  Yesterday/today is Nisfu Syaaban.

Pretty In Pink

I've done it before and here it is again... I don't know what it is, I guess I just like the girly pinky theme for the blog. And I know...I know...I'm guilty for not writing for the past one month!  So many a times, I had logged on and there were plentiful of ideas to write about...but blah... I noticed that many blogger friends had also stopped blogging. Two words on what is enticing them more, I'm thinking it's start with an F.  Many have gone private with their blogs too - did not receive invitation to read, so tsk tsk, less bloghopping now, got to clean out my blogroll.  If you do reopen your blog or want me to share my thoughts, do re-invite me and let me know!  Blogger has quite a lot of updates as well...So this is more like a trial post..I have lots to tell you.  I have missed you so, my bosom pals!

PS... A chance viewing of Lipstick Jungle spawned back this huge infatuation I had with Andrew McCarthy in my teens.  Yow..he's still gorgeous...And now I feel like watching everything from Mannequin to Pretty in Pink to St Elmo's Fire! Love those 80s/early 90s movies.
