I Am Bored…I Don’t Need Anymore Dramas In My Life Like ARSEnic, ASS-ASS-IN, Snake And Hamidah, Rosmah The Demolition Woman, Pak Lah The Mugabe

Fretty Frincess now…

Line-up, girls and get your number.

Okay…I feel bored today. My dive buddies: Ironore is already offshore, and Spazm will soon join him. Once they are offshore, there is hardly any time for them to go diving recreationally. Deepblu will be leaving to migrate too. Mocha…will be leaving the Armed Forces and is contemplating on migrating too.

Then there is me. Migrating too.

Maybe we should all sing a song…I have not done Air Supply…so let us sing to the tune of “I’m All Out Of Love”:

I’m not lying alone
with your head on my bone
squashing it down till it hurts

I know you’re hurt too
but what else can it do?
tormented and can’t get hard

I wish I could carry
you when it is hard
for times when you give me a blow

It would make me believe
what Viagra could bring
when today it rises so low
really low

I’m all out of steam
I think I’ve just lost you
I know you were tight
Been virgin for so long
I’m all out of steam
what am I without you
You need to give head
so it can be so strong

It’s PMS Time Again

Yummy Baby said I looked pale yesterday. A lot crankier than I usually am. It is my Diver’s PMS.

I used to get this a lot…those days it used to be worse. There was a time that I never brought my dive equipment back with me because I would be diving week in week out. I was still doing so when I was first diagnosed with having hypertension and was diving without medication, much to the horror of some.

I have slowed down now…a lot, I have. Putting underwater jobs aside, I have only been on two dive trips so far. One to Tioman, the other to Perhentian. I did 5 recreational dives in Tioman and only 4 in Perhentian, and that is soooo lame by my standards. My average up till July 2007 was 10 dives a month. Yes, I did 120 in 2005 and 120 in 2006 (I’m sure it surprises some as to how did I manage to celebrate my 200th dive in July of last year – actually it was my 483rd…HAHA! I was emotionally down and wanted to celebrate something…a backdated pic for my past achievement).

My favourite kind of dive is still one that is deep, dark (night), looking for wrecks and also big fishes. Although you cannot dive solo recreationally (you are required to dive with a buddy), I am, by training, a self-sufficient diver. Therefore, I love to dive alone. Even in a group you would see me venturing off somewhere alone, more often than not, I’d be going deeper than the rest; and if depth and remaining air permits, I would dive deeper than the recreational limits, even on a recreational dive. I just love it when the pressure is great, it feels like you are in a tunnel somewhere and there is nothing around you…just sheer silence, broken intermittantly by the sound of your air being exhaled.

I must be bored right now for writing this. There are times when a dive can be boring for me, especially when I do bring my camera down, or if I have to guide people diving. So, I would play around, scaring other divers off, or do stupid things like humping a fellow diver from behind.
