The Obscure vid by DeG is... O_O
Talking to Anjo about the Thai horror flick Shutter was fun. Well, I'm sure it wasn't really fun for her, since she asked me to shut up a number of times after that, and it kicked her out of her writing mood. But I'm not going to go on about the movie here, beyond that it was a really fun movie and made me gawk a little in some scenes.
Somehow, talking about that movie reminded me of elevators, even though there weren't any scenes about elevators, and it made me think of that elevator at the Maluri centre I went to yesterday in a mad dash to renew my bloody IC. While I didn't get to renew my IC because I was a bit too late (no more numbers), the elevator was fun. Really, really fun T_T.
It was jerky and it only just occurred to me when I stepped in that I don't even know which floor I'm supposed to go to. Two other people were with me, but they might as well be dead, quite literally, since they made as much noise as corpses would. I stepped in, they acted as if I weren't there, and so I just blinked and stabbed at the button for the first floor. I pressed it too late, because it took us up to the fourth floor first before it would allow me to go down.
Of course, the damn thing had to clang and creak when it closed its doors, so that the only thing I heard as the two walked out on the fourth floor, leaving me alone in the elevator. The thing closed and creaked down again. I thought the doors would stick, because it opened a seam and jerked close again, before opening again, rather jerkily. The lights flickered on and off after the doors closed. Joy. As jumpy as I tend to become in these sorts of situations, I only stared at the doors, almost glaring, waiting for something jump out of no where so I can do something with the excess adrenaline...
No, I'm not making this up. I thought something was trying to force its way into the elevator with the amount of metallic squeaking and creaking. Bloody thing finally opened and let me out after a bit. Then I find out that I was in the wrong building to begin with. Needless to say, I took the stairs. Too many times stuck in the lift in the college elevators has made me loose faith in the contraptions.
