"And if we shop til we drop, fear not -- for behold, Costco has just begun
to offer its customers value-priced caskets.
So let the holiday lights shine, let the Prada signs twinkle, the Macy's windows glimmer, the Kmart blue-light specials flash. They will beckon us and we will come, as always, moths to the flame. "
I miss Victor.
Gawd, I want to choke something right now.
Back to the guy mentality thing. I guess it all stems from my brother. Ever since we were young, we hung out a lot. In other to have company, I watched tv with him almost all the time. From knowing nothing about NBA and WWF, I become this person who loves the game, and someone who looks forward to the whole Summer Grand Slams, Ladder Match and playoffs. And he was the one who started me on Star Wars. I couldn't even tell the order of the original trilogy. =/
Now, I know what alley-oops and lay-ups are, and I seriously love buzzer beaters. I know Naboo is not a scolding word, and Chewie is not the name of a bubblegum.
In order for us to become the close siblings that we are now, I
tried try to learn what was is the "hot/in" thing in his life. Star Wars, NBA, Playstation, WWF, tennis etc. And it is this that has enabled us to "click" in the first place. We have something in common to talk about. And the fact that we came from the same junior college helps too. Now, we share everything.
And it is these interests and hobbies that makes befriending guys easier. Just mention PS2, and most guys can't stop gushing about Tekken or whatever games that float their boats. And see how their eyes brighten up when you correctly name the bounty hunter* in Star Wars.
Now that I'm stuck in Sydney with no cable, I miss my NBA playoffs and championships. I miss watching the championship matches. Especially with my brother on Saturday mornings, and sitting on the edge of the sofa, watching the nail-biting Game 7.
And it was this that made me think about what started me on NBA, which slowly led to the question of what started me on my interests.
And most of it**, it was my brother.
* = there are 2 bounty hunters. Father and son. Son is a clone of the dad. Jango and Bobba Fett.
** = most of my 'guy' interests.

Are Subway Searches Legal?
The rules for searching bags.

"The Fourth Amendment protects people from "unreasonable searches or seizures." As a general rule, the government can't search your baggage without a reason to believe you're a criminal. But according to legal precedent, a random search is acceptable if it fulfills special needs like public safety. "

Gawd he's handsome. Moody broody handsome. Even as villain Amon Goethe in Schindler's List.
And here I proudly present,
the TRAILER to Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
View it here.
I think the trailer has been out for quite some time, but hey, I don't care.
Power to Voldy!
p.s. This is like a tourist-y entry! Must have done too much of that tour guide thing.
"Eh, you are still going out with that hongkie?"
"So how does dating a honkytonk man feel?"
"Wah, you're establishing international relations with various countries ah. Dating people from different countries..."
To them fucking cowardly terrorists, you better run and you better wish you were dead because when I do get you, I'm going to tear you limb from limb. And you wish you died before you met me, you pathetic piece of human waste.
"Jie, don't buy Harry Potter tomorrow. I ordered."
Better pack my confirmation slip.

and the world is waiting impatiently for the launch.
Very often, it is the wait before the impending launch that seems the longest. I can wait 2 years, but I can't wait 2 minutes in queue for coffee, much less 11+ hours for Harry Potter 6.
p.s. Has anyone realise that all things underlined are actual links to articles/websites somewhere?
