Until the Last Moment - Yanni

My mom introduced me to many kinds of music, such as the new age music composed by Yanni. I especially love the soothing melody of the piano in the beginning of this piece :)

By the way, don't you think that Yanni really looks like Jesus? The image of Jesus in my mind is always like that, maybe due to the Christian story books I read when I was small.. :P

Friends whom you can bullshit with

"Hey, what're you doing dumbass?"

"Nothing much, just talking to an idiot at this moment."

"Which idiot? Me?? You stupid asshole!"

"Hey let's go kick some ass man."

"Go kick your ass?"

"No moron let's do something fun."

"Chatting with a dunce is fun enough."

"Which dunce? Me?? You xxxx!"

And the bullshit goes on and on between my friend and me. Usually it results in nothing meaningful. I enjoy it though, which conflicts with my result-oriented thinking a lot. Perhaps that's another side of me, I'm enthusiastic in retarded and meaningless things like Beavis & Butthead.

But, seriously, how many friends can you still bullshit with now?

When I was in high school or even college, I had quite some friends like that. After I started working, my "bullshit" friends began to disappear. No, they didn't die, they just became more serious. Some became more serious because of religion, some became more serious because of the need to work for a better living, for their families, for their loved ones.

To be honest, I haven't known any new "bullshit" friend for a loooonnnng time. And, in the foreseeable future, I don't expect to meet many of them, if not none. The "bullshit" friends I still have now? Countable with one hand.

Yeah, they are the only people who give me zero pressure. Only when they're around, I would dare be the ultimate Great Cornholio.

My dear "bullshit" friends, would you never grow up and be a dolt like me? I wish that I can still call you up and go kick some old asses in my 70's (*__* )

Afterthoughts: I'm so glad and kind of amazed to see that some people would spend so much time to write a lengthy and detailed Wikipedia article about the Great Cornholio; after all, there're still people who like retarded things like me :)

I would like to thank everyone from The Light (Lily, Cindy, Eric, Thomas, Ernest, Tim and Bonnie) for celebrating Katie's birthday tonight. It really surprised Katie and me :)

Special thanks to Bonnie for making a very delicious Bailey cheesecake!

Bolero - Ravel

I first heard this song when my high school friend played the computer game of the novel Legend of the Galactic Heroes (銀河英雄傳說) and since then whenever I listened to this song I'll think of the novel. There's another version from Pink Martini which I love very much too. It's a pity that I've not read the novel yet.. (~__~ )

Get 4 free movie tickets by using your American Express card

Just found this on my friend's Xanga blog:

If you have an American Express card, just use it 2 to 3 times at certain store or restaurant between 4/1/08 and 5/31/08 and you can mail the redemption form to American Express to get 4 free movie tickets. I think the best deal is to buy three regular tacos at Del Taco since it's the cheapest. The claim form for Del Taco is here.

Actually, you can get 4 free tickets to a museum too, but the website doesn't say what museum is participating... :P
