its new year's eve.

another year of mistakes. or as kc puts it, "blessings, but now CONFIRMED cannot".

"i cannot go to the ocean, i cannot ride the streets at night
i cannot wake up in the morning, without you on my mind
so you're gone and i'm haunted, and i bet you are just fine
did i make it that easy for you to walk right in and out, of my life?"

yeah, i guess i did.

whats in store for me in 2008? for one thing, i'll be turning 35 on 08/08/08. yep. its a scary thought. even i think that 35 is considered, wow old. where will i be, who will be in my arms when i hit that age on that special day?

tonight, i'll be with cuzz at marina south. i will not repeat the events of last yr's new year's nite. tonight, its just me and a warm bottle. cheers, p. bottoms up.

its the last 3 workin days of 2007. i'm in the office but i dont feel like working. go figure.

i was at wala2 on xmas eve with Q. shirlyn sang the skid row song "i remember you". i recognised it the moment the guitar started strummin..

"woke up to the sound of pouring rain.. the wind would whisper, and i'd think of you.."

now thats a classic. brought me back to gan eng seng days when my posse formed a band and sang mostly gNr songs. i was kinda like a on-off member, especially when they went through the gersang phase. we even renamed the band gessang.. u know.. from our school's initials. the only thing i knew how to play was the keyboard, and since gersang had a keyboard player (acis) and most of their songs had keyboard solos, i was roped in. i sucked though. days were the those.

gersang's 2nd album cover, suratan takdir. acis is the 2nd guy from the left. ok, LAUGH! it was the 80s dammit.

anyway, i enjoyed the weekend and christmas holidays, with all its highs and lows. its amazing how life swings me up and down, a little trigger that made me depressed set off a series of events and i ended up having a really nice conversation with fz at wnp.

i am so looking forward to more of that.

everything is illuminated

Friday, December 21, 2007

i read this a long time ago, posted it up on my old blog, forgotten about it, and, suddenly, i thought about it again last nite as i lay awake thinkin abt stuff. its from jonathan safran foer's book "everything is illuminated."

"he knew that i love you means i love you more than anyone loves
you
, and also, i love you in a way that no one loves you, or has loved you,
or will love you
, and also, i love you in a way that i love no one
else, and never have loved anyone else, and never will love anyone else
.
he knew that it is, by love’s definition, impossible to love two people."

ok there u have it.. thats exactly it. thats my definiton of love. i have yet to embrace it again, but 2008 looks hopeful.

desire, despair, desire. r(a)

and so the conversation went like this ->

A: so do you wanna bash me or fuck me? only one choice.
B: (pauses.. thinks) i wanna bashfuck you.
A: fwah. now u're talkin, that'll be cool.
B: finally! someone who wants the same thing i do.
A: a bashfuck is a waste of time if there isnt any blood.
B: woooo i got some ropes we can use
A: can we swing belt buckles at each other?
B: heh

and then they talked about the weather and stuff.

a bashfuck. wouldnt that be something. a later conversation revealed that a bashfuck fulfils/satisfies 2 desires at one go. the craving to let go of frustrations, anger, so much pent-up over the months, and at the same time, the appetite for intimate physical contact is released in one violent swoop.

"satisfy me like how tony did it in lust caution" was the challenge.

blame it on the weather.

why got the .195 ah?

"The marathon is a long-distance running event of 42.195 kilometres (26 miles 385 yards) that can be run either as a road race or off-road (for example, on mountain trails)."

Today's lunchtime wiki crawling is all about the marathon. Aptly so, cos I just finished my first one 2 days ago :)

"The name marathon comes from the legend of Pheidippides, a Greek soldier, who was sent from the town of Marathon to Athens to announce that the Persians had been defeated in the Battle of Marathon. It is said that he ran the entire distance without stopping and burst into the senate with the words "Masters! Victory is ours!" before collapsing and dying due to exhaustion."

Gosh. The bugger died.

"The length of a marathon was not fixed at first, since the only important factor was that all athletes competed on the same course. The marathon races in the first few Olympic Games were not of a set length, but were approximately 40 km, roughly the distance from Marathon to Athens by the longer, flatter route. The exact length of the Olympic marathon varied depending on the route established for each venue.
The marathon at the 1908 Summer Olympics in London was set to measure about 25 miles (40 km) and to start on ‘The Long Walk’ – a magnificent avenue leading up to Windsor Castle in the grounds of Windsor Great Park. The Princess of Wales wanted her children to watch the start of the race, so the start of the race was moved to the east lawn of Windsor Castle, increasing its length to 26 miles (42 km). The race was to finish at the Great White City Stadium in Shepherd's Bush in London; however, Queen Alexandra insisted on having the best view of the finish; so, in the words of the official Olympic report, "385 yards were run on the cinder track to the finish, below the Royal Box". The length then became 42.195 km (26 miles 385 yards or 26 7⁄32 miles)."

And so it goes that a royal whim set the standard.

"Completing a marathon is considered very difficult, but many coaches believe that it is possible for anyone who is willing to put in the time and effort. There are two strategies for completing a marathon: actually running the whole distance, and a run-walk strategy. An intermediate approach is to run from water stop to water stop, and walk through the water stop to insure the fluids are consumed instead of spilled."

Ok I'm gonna write a lot more about my own personal experience running it in the next entry. For now, I'll just say... I feel accomplished :)
