Where will you be my darling? Where will you be when the dark is rising?

Well... during the last few days in KL, I won't deny I've been getting my big break. There's something cozy about staying in an apartment, with a bed (major contrast to my rented place) and the ability to drive a car! And I'm not away from church, which is another plus. However, some things still do annoy me. Let's take for example...
My sister has become a health and environment freak. She won't eat anything that the media calls unhealthy and is a self-proclaimed vegetarian, saying she doesn't eat meat because its cruel to animals. But she has no qualms eating seafood. Huh? Isn't cutting off a sharks fin and leaving them to die cruel also? Not to her. Plus, one magazine reported that eating too much spinach was unhealthy, and now she doesn't touch them. Heck, too much of anything is bad. Just try loading yourself with vitamin A and B12. You'll be worse off. Then she now only eats wholegrain fibre bread, which is the kind thats all brownish with all the grains inside. It's healthier than normal bread, but only a bit -.-. Then she loves vegetables, so I'm stuck eating parsley (my most hated vegetable) which is included in like half of the dishes, with almost no meat (I'm more of a meat eater). Also, just for her, my mom has to cook brown rice just for her, 'cause she says its healthier. Fine, it is, but again, not by much. She claims she's eating healthy, but I don't consider a quarter of a bowl of rice healthy -.-. Then when I leave some veggies uneaten, she'll say think about the starving kids in Africa. Geez. Well missy, having me eat those veggies isn't going to fill up their bellies! I know the point is to not waste food, but little morsels aren't going to make a difference. Having me throw up from eating too much isn't going to make them any fuller either.
Not just that! When I go out of my room just to go to the washroom, when I return, she'll have turned off my room lights, saying I waste electricity. HECK! It's just a few seconds! When I'm washing the dishes and stop for a while to check the TV, she'll tell me to turn off the kitchen lights because I'm not using it. Geez! Meanwhile, she's got two lights above her on full time when she's using the laptop. Laptops make light, so what's the use in having more light on top? -.-. Hypocrite, seriously. She said that me turning off the lights for a few seconds will make a difference to the polar bears who are starving in the Arctic, because of the energy preserved in the midst of global warming. I wonder why she doesn't push all these ideals to other people -.-, just my mom and I. Zzz.
Anyway, as if nuisances weren't enough, I accidentally had my toe stabbed a few hours ago. I was lying down on the couch, reading "Cell" by Stephen King (good book), and my sister asked me to help her out in a game she was playing online. Something like Pictionary, but you use paint tools to draw and others type out what you're drawing. I'm really good (and she can't deny it) so she'd regularly ask for my help time and again. After a while of not asking, she asked again and I walked over to her. I didn't see my feet, and I didn't think that having my foot under the chair would be a big deal, so after helping her, I walked back and slipped on the floor. First I was like HUH? How come my feet are wet? Then when I looked down I saw that my toe was bleeding badly, and I had slipped in a puddle of my own blood. Ouchies anyone? I didn't even feel it! Oh man... seems that under the chair, there had been a staple sticking out, which I kicked my toe into without realizing -.-. The blood was pouring out from my toe quite steadily, until I washed it and I finally felt some pain. Afterward, my sister helped me get a bandage and I cleaned up the mess on the floor, which was almost hardened, thanks to the fan. Blood dries extremely fast when blown by a ceiling fan. Aye... you know what my sister said? "That's worse than my period."
