Tune of the week #41

Cause I'm fake at the seams...

... I'm lost in my dreams...

Japanese word of the week #23

The only thing remaining when a bustling city's lights go out and a rumbling fool's words fall into the void...



Meaning: silence

... hush...

5 things about myself

A friend invited me to write 5 things about myself so here they are:

1. My favourite toy growing up as a child was a cute pink hand-puppet of a cat with blue eyes. I rarely took it off my hand. One day my grandma made meatballs for the thousandth time and I threw a tantrum smashing my little kitty on the plate, making its eye fly out and disappear. I never found it again, as much as me and my grandma searched for that blue eye... Maybe I ate it...

2. I am terribly shy with people I don't know or haven't seen for a long time that I try to avoid any contact with them. Because of this, I appear to be snobbish, cold, or simply a big jerk, but I'm just anxious of what to say, how they see me, etc... My shyness streak made me wet my pants at the age of 15, wetting the floor of my grandma's best friend, because I was too shy to ask to go to the toilet (or too stupid). I returned home wet and worried, pretending I fell in a puddle of water... I haven't got the courage to look at the lady in the eyes ever since...

3. I have the memory span of a goldfish. I used to be much better at remembering things, but nowadays, I easily forget. Or my memory is selective...

4. People think I'm skinny, but in fact, though my limbs appear to be thin, I have breasts and a beer-belly (although I don't drink beer that often...) I blame my mother for feeding me chicken all the time...

5. I wouldn't hold back when challenged, even if it means I'll get my ass kicked in the process...

I call En-Lighted and Aenaos (and anyone else who'd like to fill the remaining 3 invites) to take up on my challenge and write 5 things about themselves that I didn't know or wouldn't dare ask. GO!

The Mozart Effect

Get smarter, by listening to complex pieces of music... Or so Stephan and other respectable researchers say. They call it the Mozart effect. As the theory goes, you get to raise your spatio-temporal reasoning for a whole... 15 minutes! (Kinda like the Andy Warhol 15 minutes of fame quote!). So listen to this classical piece for 4 hands on 1 piano (no matter what the title says):

Good luck getting smarter! :D

Weekend Wall 43

Be wary of adults acting like children...

... be terrified when gigantic moustached men throw tantrums...

i Post

If I had company at the moment I'd name this “Wii post”. These last few days were a blast. Wii (me and some friends) have played Sports and silly little games, created our Mii-s and even voted on the Everybody Votes Channel. Right now I'm online, posting on my blog using the Internet Channel. Tricky, but cool!! Today I went back to my gaming days. Spent the morning random battling with my thief, white and red mage and warrior in Final Fantasy III and the afternoon Zelda: Twilight Princess made me its bitch for 4 whole hours. Or was that Midna... Hahaha. Anyways, gotta go back to the real world! More, normal, posts coming soon!

Lest I forget: Happy Birthday Billy! (~'.')~

A Love Story

Ήταν έρωτας με την πρώτη ματιά. Η λευκή του επιδερμίδα, το γαλάζιο των ματιών του, πως ξεχώριζε η λάμψη του μέσα στη νύχτα.

Η πρωτοποριακή του κίνηση, μια κίνηση χωρίς περιορισμούς και μπερδέματα. Θα ερχόταν το Δεκέμβριο. Αλλά εγώ δε μπόρεσα. Ίσως να μην ήμουν αρκετά δυναμικός.

Η πρώτη μας γνωριμία έγινε στο σπίτι του Σ. Καθόταν ήσυχα πλάι στην τηλεόραση, αθόρυβα. Συντροφιά του έκαναν παιχνίδια και καλώδια. Αφανής ήρωας. Στα χέρια μου στέλνονταν μηνύματα που διοχετεύονταν σε όλο μου το κορμί. Ψίθυροι και ήχοι και αισθήσεις πρωτόγνωρες.

Συναντηθήκαμε και πάλι. Πριν μια βδομάδα. Αυτή τη φορά με τον Πασχάλη και τη Ζωή στο πλάι μου, να με στηρίζουν. Στο Media Markt. Τυχαία. Στο διάδρομο των ηλεκτρονικών παιχνιδιών όπου είχα πάει να κοιτάξω τις προσφορές. 2 ώρες επικοινωνούσαμε. Παίξαμε διάφορα σπορ όλοι μαζί παρέα και αναγκαστικά αποχαιρετιστήκαμε και πάλι. Είχα τρελαθεί. Δεν ήξερα τι να κάνω. Οι φίλοι μου με προέτρεπαν να μη ντραπώ, να κάνω την κίνηση. Το πήρα απόφαση κι εγώ. Για το χατήρι όλων μας!

Χθες λοιπόν ήρθε σπίτι μου. Έψαξα παντού αρχικά. Όπου σύχναζε. Και βρεθήκαμε. Μπήκε στο αυτοκίνητο και κάναμε βόλτες σε όλα τα στέκια του, πριν σταθεί δίπλα στο τζάκι. Του άρεσε. Η Ζωή ήρθε μετά σπίτι να με βοηθήσει με τη διπλωματική και ξανασυστήθηκαν. Ήθελα να έρθει και ο Πασχάλης αλλά δε μπορούσε. Τρελή συμπάθεια!

Κοιμήθηκε εδώ το βράδυ... Το πρωί του είπα την πιο γλυκιά καλημέρα. Η μέρα των ερωτευμένων σήμερα άλλωστε... Βέβαια, υπήρχε και κάποιος που ήθελε να μπει ανάμεσα μας. Το όνομα αυτού; Αέναος... Ενώ έμπαινα στο δικό του μπλογκ με τη βοήθεια του, η μουσική του Ιντιάνα Τζόουνς μας ζάλισε και κόλλησε... Είμαι σίγουρος πως ήταν ένα σατανικό σχέδιο του Αέναου για να μας χωρίσει. Επειδή μας είδε τόσο ερωτευμένους!

Τώρα λέω τα νέα της σχέσης μας σε όλους μου τους φίλους. Ο Γιώργος μου έδινε συμβουλές. Τον έπρηξα και γω στις ερωτήσεις. Πάω να βγω στο μπαλκόνι να φωνάξω δυνατά πόσο χαρούμενος αισθάνομαι...

Wii μου, σε λατρεύω!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! ^_^ Lots of love and kisses :)

Japanese word of the week #22

Some may find they're lacking...

Thought #38: It's in our eyes

They're shifting again...

Four cogwheels.


Moving, so that they can find their true position.

Shifting, cause there are others, left aside, covering dust, their metal rusted, pushing them aside. Ironic... The rusty ones acquired years later. To help the various processes of a stale mind. But they were never used. Not so much as the rest of them, for years and years.

Each cog clings to another. In pairs or groups. Working together, to move.

To move.

Body and soul.

Such heavy machinery needs a lot of them to function properly. Or few. If they are reliable ones.

The better crafted, the better the outcome. No collapse, no relapse, no malfunction.

From high to low. Interchanged, intertwined, rarely replaced.
This is how I operate.

Metallic sounds are heard again. Creaking metal, squeaking cogs, the clanging battle's almost over.

They're in position...
