Zig-zagging through traffic, I am almost hit by a bike doing the same– a case of double crossing.

Also, my first run-in with an albino at Mental Square.

Girl says she’s “Orientating” herself when I offer help reading the bus schedule. Should I be offended by the allusion she’s, “‘Face toward the East‘-ing herself” or just feel bad for her because she’s, “Palinizing” words?

Side note– definite double standard when Prince Harry’s party-hard girlfriend gets sloshed about a gossip-rag for picking a wedgie, but man two feet away from me gets away with picking wind breaker shorts wedgie.

The many shades of pink, blue, and green. I wish that’s what my wardrobe consisted of, instead of grey, black and white.

———————————————————–

Day 10 – Three ways to win your heart.

  • Food- Cook, or at least enjoy eating food with me.

Tuna Tartare, one of my most loved dishes

  • Read books and start discussion.

  • Humor me. Make me laugh, and laugh at my bad jokes.

Day 11 – Three favorite movies.

  • The shot above is from of my favorites. If you do not recognize that still, you probably cannot win my heart.
  • Idiocracy– a lot of people don’t get this movie. I don’t think they give it enough chances. When first watched, it is seriously inane. Beavis and Butthead in live action, but on the second go around, you find it really is an accurate satire on the trajectory of society. Also, it offers quotable quotes such as this, “Don’t worry, scrote. There are plenty of ‘tards out there living really kick-ass lives. My first wife was ‘tarded. She’s a pilot now.”
  • The Sound of Music – I have been able to sing every note of this movie since I have been able to produce sounds. 


Day 12 – Three appetizers you enjoy.

  • I’m really good at getting ahead of myself. Tartare and Carpaccio of all sorts rank high on my list of appetizers.
  • Fresh Rolls


  • Seaweed Salad
