Hora, minna-hun~♫

This is Ms.Aya who is going to continue her entry on ‘Why it Sucks to be Single’.

I read someone’s comment saying that leaving your bag on the table is totally fine and safe, plus — You’re certain that the table is all yours. <T_T>

Hence said, what’s so bad about being single? (in this case, going out solo)

Well today, I went to Coffee Bean and despite how packed it was — I managed to find a comfortable seat and a spacious table for me to layout my books. So without taking any chances, I left my books on the table to sort of give away a hint saying — “Place taken, sucker”. <`A´>/

Then, I ordered my usual beverage at the counter and guess what? <.___.>{?]

This time it wasn’t one of those guys with a detestable yet innocent smile on his face that conveniently took my seat. This time… ↓

!! Eraikotcha !!

It was a kid beneath the height of my hips that came running to my table. I made a second glance just to assure myself that the kid was mindlessly running amok but no —– There he was sitting in front of my books looking like this. ↓

“Ore makechatta ~~ya”, my mouth dropped. <∏A∏>

There was an older kid accompanying the little one and I guess he saw my ‘eraikotcha’ face so he figured that those were my books. He persuaded the little kid to move and later they sat at the table which was beside me. Rather cramp and small. For a second, I had this intention to give up my place for them since they had an additional adult with them plus they were carrying some folders as though they wanted to conduct their studies.

However, the adult left, leaving their faces glued to their PSP’s. So yea… Free from guilt! (Laughs) <^-^>lll

Baa… <u_u> I’m so glad that they were reasonable to the point I feel ashamed for thinking of strangling them. (Slaps self)

Long time ago, I sat in Coffee Bean and I was fortunate to have a good place to practice my English. Then a group of girls entered and there was only one small table left. Naturally, they sat there and they noticed that I was alone and I had a table for four.

I could be imagining this though, those girls (5 – 6 of them) were staring daggers at my direction, made some bitchy eye contacts and if I’m heard correctly — they made some nasty remarks that goes by the line “Waaa… So great ah, one person only want to take up so much space….” ヽ<`Д´>ノ

They even made gestures as though they want to ask me to switch places with them. <=_=>lll

When I looked around, I realized that I’m the most vulnerable and intimidated one in the cafe. Everyone was with somebody and even though there were other singles — they were men. (Laughs)

Anyway, they did not confront me in the end. <u_u> They just displayed their annoyance of having to squeeze their bag of lards just to sit close to each other so that none of them will miss out the latest gossips and rants. (Laughs)

Alright, enough about dining/having lunch solo. Let’s move on to other reasons why it sucks to be single. <^-^>/

Have any of you ever watched a movie ALONE in the cinema?

Your answer: _______________________________

If you’ve never gone to the cinema alone, do feel that you’re bless with friends and companions. You’re definitely not as silly as sheep to go to the cinemas alone!

Going to the cinema alone is not all that weird and lonely. It depends on how you perceive and handle loneliness. Some wimpy asses might go to the cinemas alone out of self-pity and just to encourage the emo shit in them.

On the other hand, some people are just too darn excited and eager to watch the movie that they can’t wait for their pussified friends who are whining about their incoming exams. Apparently by staying at home, they are entitled to full marks. <_   _>lll

As for me, I enjoy going to the movies alone — SOME TIMES. The good thing about watching a movie outside solo is:

  1. No additional narrator/commentator: I don’t like people talking to me during the movie. Especially when they try to explain to me about what’s going on (probably I understand the movie better than them) without me asking, “Eh, how come he’s still alive?!” or when the obvious is obviously shown. Don’t you think it’s better to save all the discussion after we’re done watching?
  2. No complaints: “The seat is hard”, “This place stinks”, “I can’t see the screen”, “The mother fucker at 12 o’clock is having a seizure”, “Bastard kid is kicking my chair — AGAIN”.. <-  ->lll Dude, STFU. < ̄へ  ̄> 凸

So yea.. sometimes the absence of friends in the cinema can be calm and relaxing.

… On second thought, it does suck to watch alone. Especially when you’re seated next to a weirdo.

You know, I’m quite childish and dreamy. When I line up to buy my ticket, I’d think to myself, “Maybe I’ll be seated next to my long lost lover and we will finally reunite there!” If so, I promise to keep that ticket in my treasure box as a memento. <#^∇^#>ゞ

Sadly, a dream is a dream. Here’s one weird and freakish moment I had in my solo outings — in the cinema!

I think it was last year or the year before — I went to watch Fantastic 4: The rise of the silver spoon alone and it was on my birthday.

Next to me was an uncle who seem to have came to watch the movie alone too. He wore shorts and a very thin, worn-out T-shirt and throughout the movie — He kept talking to himself. <o_o>

He was like, “Haha.. Good one…”, “Haha… Very funny…”, “Haha… I knew it!”.

He even repeated certain dialogs! <OAO>!!!

Another incident was when I watched Black Sheep, there was yet another uncle who had a staunched body odour and kept fidgeting throughout the show. ↓

At times like this — I’ll call out for Mira and Saru-chan. (Laughs)

In other words, I appreciate friends because if anything else — I’m immune to them and I can tell them to be mindful or watch out for their manners.

… What!? <OAO>

You don’t expect me to tell those uncles, “Oe.. You fell in the drain is it? So smelly leh”.

Suppose they cup my butt — Then I’ll put my morals aside and …

!! SLAP !!

(Laughs)

Other reasons why it sucks to be single is… You can’t ask for opinions from people whom knows you best.

If you were to ask sales people, on purpose — They’ll introduce to you the most expensive products. And if you’re alone — Somehow they can overpower you! \<*`∧´>/

One last reason — Buying ice-cream.

Damn — As you can see the picture beneath, I always struggle a lot to make my payment. ↓

Even though I can set my things on the table — Some people are just too blady impatient. It’s not like I’m going to buy all the ice-cream, leaving none for them — right?

And what I hate most is, the counter fella will just shove the ice-cream to me and hands out for money. Can’t he hold the ice-cream for me until I take out my money?

What I usually do is — I’ll ask in advance how much the ice-cream cost so that I can whip out my dollar notes and dig out for coins. However, they always tell me — “Wait ah… wait ah…….OK!” (Hands over the ice-cream and then expects me to take out my money single-handedly)

(Tears) <;__;>

A~ah well… All these are trivial matters.

I guess being a single and friendless is making sheep cranky, ne? <.____.> ↓

One is the loneliest number. <u_u>

Sheep needs to go now. Bath is awaiting sheep~ \<^w^>/

If I have not replied your comments — Don’t be alarmed or offended.

I’ll reply them as soon as I have time. <^x^>/

This is all from Ms.Aya — Have a good and pleasant day~♥
