whinge whinge whinge

i've got so much to whinge about. i'm in such a bitchy whingey mood.

firstly, i really hate the new blogger. it sucks big time. there's so much i can't do, and there's so many bugs and shit. and the blogger support personnel are elusive and non supportive. they keep directing me to that shit ass blogger help group which does jack. and even when i eventually managed to email blogger support, the arsehole couldn't even read the email properly and just dispensed one of the usual textbook answer and even try to navigate me back to the damn blogger help group again. when i pointed out to him that he didn't even read my email correctly, the nutjob didn't even bother to reply. why am i still using blogger? well, let's see... 1) i've got way too much blogs and blog entries to move them somewhere else 2) what about the comments? 3) what about all those links and all that i've cultivated throughout? UURRGGHH!! i'm stuck with fucking blogger for now.

whinge number two. a lot of americans are freakin' deaf, blind and stupid... at least those that voted for sanjaya in the 2007 american idol. wtf??!! i was a fan of the little twat, but as the weeks progressed, he showed his weakness and flaws, no.. let me rephase that. he FLAUNTED his weakness and flaws, and yet these idiots are still wasting their effort and money to vote him back! he's not even cute!! he's got this annoying habit of wrinkling his big nose and opening that big gap in a what he passes off as a grin. URK!!

whinge No:3. in fact, this year's AI don't make good tv at all. the contestants are so bland and without any personality what so ever. the happening ones were eliminated earlier and what we have left are some who are awesome singers but i won't even think of buying any of their albums coz they are so bleakhhh.

whinge numero quattro. mph online is the pits. i wanted to order some books online as they do not have the book in the physical stores that went to. i found out that they are discriminatory to mac users, or rather non IE users. here below are the emails that went back and forth between me and some mph online personnel:

I am looking to order a book online, but i am having trouble doing so because your website only permits browser users of IE. I am using a mac computer and i use only either safari or firefox.

how do i go about ordering and paying for a book?

Hello,

So basically you are telling me that i cannot make an online purchase because i use either safari or firefox on a mac computer, as IE6 cannot run on Mac computer. And that, should i want to make an online purchase, i'd have to use a PC running IE6.

Did i get it right?

Corey

whinge # V. some of the production houses here are idiotic sad assed excuse for slip shod under qualified material. there was a few shoots recently by this shit company called paragon for a few TVCs for some radio stations. the story board, the production work, the editing, the post production work, the audio... all were way below par. stupid i tell you, just out to con your money.

I'm with you on the Sanjaya crap. Seeing his face with his idiotic smile makes me want to gag. That asshole even tried to be a smartass with Simon. The fuck??? Apparently the drive to vote for Sanjaya was initiated by Howard Stern. Hence the numerous votes. Plus I have a hunch that his family must've done all the votes. I call him Michael Jackson Jr. because he looks like one only without the singing talent. Urrgghh!!!

I totally agree with you about how much blogger sucks. It is really really annoying. All the new rules bother me, there's even a limit now to how many photos a blog can store! Argh! Where else can we go?!
