I have short attention span. I need stimulus but I don't have the patience to wait for it.
Take blogs for instance. I like 'em short and sweet. "Wham, Bam, Thank you, Maam!" Two minutes in, I'm done and moving along. And just as I like to read them, I like to write them short too. Anything beyond 250 words and my brain shuts down. Unless I'm talking about food, of course. Heh! That's when my stomach kicks in to boot up my brains.
And so I find myself becoming increasingly stupid. It took me ages to figure out what the whole AP issue is all about. I just never got past AP, Rafidah and Tun Mahathir. But inject some soap opera in the thing and suddenly you've got my attention. :)
Same thing with the whole Bloggerthon thing. I've seen it all over PPS in the last few weeks but until now, I have yet to understand what it's all about. 250 words in and my mind shut down. I promise I'll get there soon.
On the other hand, I'm fairly well-versed with the KennySia-SPG controversy. Heck, I'm even a bit of an authority on the KahSoon-KaSoons thing. Bottomline: Drama! Not only am I turning stupid, I'm also becoming something of a bloody PatPhoh*!
And now, 230 words in this posting and already I'm getting bored. Next!!
