Fight the Future

July 3, 2006

OK. Now, if this is gonna make any sense to whomever is reading this, the first thing ya gotta do is go over to Multi Medium and check out a pic with the caption “Orange wall with thingy.” I was over there myself earlier today and saw the pic in question, and didn’t think anything of it until later, when I happened to drop by Loser’s Guide and saw an eerily familiar looking object in an article called “The Truth Is Right Here.” It doesn’t end there, people. I took the picture you’re looking at right now with my cell phone (sorry for the poor quality). Look closely and you should recognize this object. Yes!! It’s the same object! And do you know where I saw it? It was hovering over a rugby field in back of my condo!! The glare is from the field’s lights, but this is clearly the same object. They’ll never take me alive…


I’ve Been ‘Tagged’…

June 27, 2006

My new friend Maliha over at Lightness of Being… has sent me a meme tag. Maliha, I usually hate this kind of stuff, but in the spirit of friendship, good international relations, world peace, saving the whales, and plugging the hole in the ozone layer, I will play along. 😉 I’ll need a bit of time to figure out which of my friends to ‘tag’. Here goes…

I am?
an outsider, a stranger in a strange land
I want?
to live forever
I wish?
England would win the World Cup; my beloved Boston Bruins would win the Stanley Cup
I hate?
Japanese-style pizza (potatoes and mayonnaise on pizza? gimme a break!); intolerance
I miss?
my father (who never got to meet his grand-daughter); Canada
I fear?
anything bad happening to my family
I hear I am not?
a very nice guy
I hear I am?
a very nice guy
I dance?
only when it’s absolutely necessary! (except with my daughter–anytime, anywhere)
I sing?
goofy Bugs Bunny-style ‘opera’ tunes to my daughter (“Figaro” is her favorite); old Rolling Stones tunes when Japanese friends drag me to karaoke
I cry?
when nobody’s watching, about really sappy things
I am not always?
aware that I’ve acted or spoken unkindly
I make with my hands?
very good sandwiches; a nice, spicy chili; silly play-do creatures with my daughter
I write?
these days about my love/hate relationship with Japan; generally about things that interest me or make me concerned
I confuse?
nobody intentionally, but probably many accidentally
I need?
some time alone (maybe more than most people)
I should?
work a lot harder to improve my Japanese; quit smoking
I start?
umm…what time is it now?
I finish?
umm… when do you need it?
