Major tidying

January 22nd, 2007 by MrLuxuryFashionGuru

I vacuumed the common spaces today, as well as the room Ray vacated when he left for a semester in Paris.  The suite is much cleaner now. 🙂

I’ve also started the long overdue tidying up of this blog, which suffered major messing-up when the blog server I use was migrated from Manila to WordPress.  Not being very tech-savvy, I’ve had to do most of the changes by hand like re-posted old posts, adding links and starting to categorize old posts.  This will take a while, and perhaps will never be completely finished.

I’ve also added two new essays from last semester – it’s the two final papers I wrote on Salman Rushdie’s very lengthy, but deservedly award-winning Midnight’s Children.  These were essays I wrote for extremely different literature classes.  One was for a class on the postcolonial narrative, so I wrote about issues of agency and control: “Happy Accidents and Snakes-and-Ladders: Fate, Agency and Repeating History in Salman Rushdie’s Midnight’s Children“.  The other was for a class on bilingualism and literature, so I focussed on ambiguity, foreigners and gender based on the framework introduced by one of the other course readings: “Salman Rushdie’s Midnight’s Children as a Gothic Democratic Narrative“.

    During a recent PASSWORD AUDIT by my bank, they found that I was using the following password:


    When they asked me why I had such a long password

    I replied
    ”Are you bloomin’ stupid? I was told that my password had to
    be at least 8 characters long and include one capital”
