i've been tagged

There are necessary evils in blogoshpere. And this is one of them. Since I’m trying to be a good citizen of this crazy community, I’ll try to do my obligation like a proper, law-abiding schoolboy. Weng, I’ll be sending you truckloads of viruses by the end of this month. Just wait.


List down five things you enjoy doing, even when no one around you wants to go out and play.What lowers your stress/blood pressure/anxiety level?Post the list on your journal and then tag 5 friends and ask them to post it on theirs.

Ok, here it goes:

1. pinching my nipples till they bleed

What? Sado-masochistic fantasies don’t count? Ok, strike that one out.

1. a long swim in a huge pool, uninterrupted by critters who swish and splash like they’ve never seen chlorinated water before.

2. reading a great book on a hammock while sipping black Russian with cherry

3. listening to Secret Garden, Orff’s Carmina Burana, Debussy, or Rent.

4. sight-reading new piano pieces that rock

5. staring at the blurring, passing countryside through a bus window

now, I pass the curse to the following people. If you break the chain, your anus will seal up faster than you can say “that sucks!”

1. Dionne and Joven
2. Tet
3. Marc
4. Jen
5. Just put Dionne down here and Joven on number one.

ahhh... pinching nipples.. that's a new one. too erogenous for my taste. ;)

btw, really really appreciate your insights about Hotel Rwanda. One reason perhaps that we continue to be apathetic to these issues is because we choose to remain uninformed and hence, ignorant. There's no one to blame but ourselves. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Sad Sad

i knew you'd kill me if i did.


ah yes, pinching nipples, one of the joys of life...

on rwanda--even those who were well-informed and were in a position to act did not do something. was it because they thought it was a cultural thing? reminds me of people who would never call the police even if the couple next door are already killing each other. it's a marital thing, they would say. or is it because there's nothing to be gained in intervening?

but genocide is still genocide in whatever culture.

sad, indeed.


oh so it's already a series? i was able to read the second part. it was as hilarious.

j'ai essaié a lire de court histoires par hemingway. la langue est different. son anglais est 19e siecle (europe?). il est donc difficile à comprendre.

i have tried to read some of hemingways short stories. the language is different. its english is 19th century (europe?). im not able to get through a page without a minute studying the words.

are you referring to ernest hemingway? his style is so stark and bare, almost boring, actually. maybe it was a different author you read. or those were stories that I haven't read yet.
