I was away a little over a month ago to one of the many Indonesia’s national parks. The one I went to was called Gunung Leuser and located somewhere in North Sumatera.
The park was interesting. To enter the park, I had to actually cross a small river with somewhat fast current. The area around the park was quite secluded. It was hard to find reception for cellphones and the attempt for using a wifi failed quite horribly.
I think that Spring is the saddest season of the year because it is usually the time to say goodbye to my favourite American TV series.
(I know. I am lame that way. My life still revolves around TV, worse, it’s American TV. Whatever.)
Kramer: She’s wondering when we’re gonna come over and see the baby
Jerry: Oh. See the baby. Again with the baby. He keeps calling us to see the baby. You gotta see the baby! When are you gonna see the baby? Can they just send us a tape?
Elaine: Maybe if you wait a few more months then it won’t be a baby anymore then you don’t have to see it
Jerry: Because they all grown up!
Jerry: It’s tough about seeing the people when they have a baby. You have to match their level of enthusiasm. They’re always so excited. “What do you think of them? What do you think?”
Just once I would like to meet a couple that goes, “you know we’re not too happy about them, frankly. I think we really make a big mistake, we should’ve gotten an aquarium.”

… I am not exactly following American Idol myself, but I watch all three of this week’s broadcast. Based on my experience of watching very few performances, I have found my two favourites. And I just need to share them here.
I came across Louie sometime ago when I accidentally changed the TV channel to FX. I have not yet become a fan and so far I have only watched a few episodes. However, the episodes that I watched have really touched me and I feel the need to share them.
One of the episodes that I watched was called Come On, God (S02E08). The whole episode was dedicated to masturbation, which is not the point of this post.
The point of this post is explained by the 2:50 minutes video below.
When I watched it the first time I laughed out loud. After that, I have not yet stopped wondering. Was it appropriate to laugh? Have I been mocking God? Have I been mocking people that worship God? After all, I am ‘keeping myself’ until I get married.
Anyway, regardless of what someone’s religion is, I guess this is the basic thought of why someone is ‘keeping themselves’ until they get married.
Happy wedding to all my dearest friends. I hope your ‘first night’ is not going to be as terrible as what I have been told.
Due to the uncertainty of my package’s arrival,
here’s one special post for you, Icha!
What are the songs that have been played repeatedly on my iTunes or on YouTube or on SoundCloud?
Here they are:
The modern girl doesn’t need a man. Men hold you back and let you down. A job doesn’t.
Valerie Roper in The Tennis Party by Madeline Wickham (p. 245)
Do you ever notice how all the self-sacrificing women in history, Joan of Arc, Mother Theresa, can’t think of any others, they all die alone. The men on the other hand get so much fuzz, it’s crazy.
It’s an unfair world.
House – TB or Not TB (S02E04)
Sex could kill you.
Do you know what the human body go through when you have sex?
Pupil dilates, arteries constrict, core temperature rises, heart races, blood pressure skyrockets, respiration becomes rapid and shallow.
The brain fires bursts of electrical impulses from nowhere to nowhere.
Secretions spit out of every gland.
And the muscles tense and spasm like you’re lifting three times your body weight.
It’s violent, it’s ugly, and it’s messy.
And if God hadn’t made it unbelievable fun, the human race would’ve died out eons ago.
Men are lucky they can only have one orgasm.
You know that women can have an hour-long orgasm?
