My Brain Fog



‘Normal’ times are back but I somehow realized that my brain is still behaving abnormally. Why?? How come?? I also no understand. Oh ya, of course, I cannot understand because my brain refused to behave normally.

I put up a post on Sunday 'merepeking' how glad I was that Monday is coming right after Sunday and how I looked forward to some semblance of normalcy. Yesterday was Monday and as much as I detest waking up early, I psyche myself that, “YES! Today is the day….I’m gonna embrace this glorious ‘normal’ Monday…I’m gonna crank that semi-comatosed brain back into life again."

First stop…to the office and as I stepped out from the lift, walked to the door and let my fingers run through the door key-pad (oh ya, the office is still using the manual numeric keypad lock) and I then pushed at the door and absentmindedly banged my head hard against the glass. Ouuch…..I tried to walk right in when the door is not even open…I had keyed in the wrong lock number. One hand rubbing the bruise on my forehead, the other hand tried to type in the number again…still tak jalan. Aiyah…I had not been to the office for a few days and I have forgotten the lock number! This is what too much chilling out away from the office, can do to me. I had to ring the doorbell.

I then checked out my personal emails (3 different set of passwords)…hmmmm…no problemos…very good. Next stop, my official company-given email, and you guessed it right…I keyed in all wrong…..I think 3 or 4 times and I got locked out. Aiyaahhhhh…..
Nevermind, I just let it be and then proceeded to go in another site to retrieve some work data, keyed in the right ID number but used the wrong the password again. Another aiyaaahhh…..I then walked away from the pc and tried to do something else and at the same time tried to will that mumbo-jumbo of a password out of my head. Tak jalan jugak. I sat my self down and tried writing it out on a piece of paper all the ID numbers and passwords and access codes that I use and I surprised myself that I can actually store so many sets of numbers/alphabets in my head and all these, not including those bank Personal Identification Numbers. And for security reasons, we are advised to change passwords and PIN numbers regularly and this only add to my misery.

I need a little bit more time and I am certain my brain will slowly crawl back to being normal again.

Hi Nyonya, You sure you did not have more than 2 Southern Comforts during CNY?
Brain not activated? Maybe too much sleep? Not good sleep late, brain gets delayed too...
So you doing some Chup Goh Mei prayers? I really miss these Chup Goh Mei nights.
You have a nice day and watch out for glass doors. That shows your office cleaners did a good job! UL.

Like car long time no jalan, must warm up first lah! If too long no jalan, cannot even start!!! Use it or lose it!!!
P.S.: So far nothing on in KL, so dont think I'll be going anytime in the near future. May be going Penang middle of March but no confirmation yet. If go KL, sure will let nyonya know and we can go minum kopi!
Blame the office. Blame the PC.

Passwords and PIN numbers are such funny things. Sometimes only our fingers and some funny part of the brain remember them... the day we consciously force ourself to remember them, somehow we forget.

Or maybe it's just me, LOL!

if you have to psyche yourself to go to work, obviously you are not ready for it. who can blame you - who doesn't want to lepak some more, esp when there's 15 days for celebrations.

i mean, when you stay at home, do you forget where the fridge is, or what your children's names are?? i bet you remember all your passwords when you want to read your emails from home!!

no wonder your "normal" is in inverted commas!

  At 9:36 AM Blogger Bernard said:
Perhaps you could have a few standard passwords... and rotate among them.

Or write them down. :-)
