dining or pool table?

well, should i buy this pool table from dave (since he's leaving town) or should i get this beautiful dining table pc? good questions, eh?

another friend leaving town.

i know i've stayed longer than usual in a spot when one by one the friends i've made in the past year are leaving town and i'm around to attend their farewell "do"s! well, does the various short jaunts from taipei count as me traveling? y do i have such an issue of being in a place longer than a few months?
at the beginning of feb, everyone's taken off to somewhere exotic n cool but i stayed put. a few reasons, 1 of which is the flat i'm about to move into w/my brother is near finishing up (tho i hate this project, pain in the u-kno-wher!) 2, i spent way too much money already buying things for my place, & 3, airfare way too costly. however, after experiencing how horrid the weather has been so far, nearly 8 weeks of rain, gloom n cold with just 1 day of sunshine last week, i've never been so depressed n lazy. i feel all cooped up.
the challenge is for me to manage sticking around here, hv a home. will i b able to do it? in 2 weeks, my newly designed bed will b made n delivered and i will b moving into the flat with victor. that should keep me occupied for a bit. tho i really really do miss the warm sun heating my face n body. i've become really pale! will i hv enough money to get to thailand n back for a long weekend at the beach?
how is it most of my thoughts r just filled with going away? what i need to do is go back to cali tho, it's been a long long time since i was really home. 1/2 year! (the brief stop in oct doesn't count) i'm stopping my rambling ons now. this is a blog afterall.l


chris' home remedy to sever headache, migraines

well, victor and i both had very bad migraines today. since chris, our sister, also used to get it quite often, she's read up and did quite a research on it and developed her own remedy. vic, who didn't quite believe in this, tried it for the first time and it worked! coffee doesn't affect me too much, so i'm relying victor's experience as being less biased.

here it is, 1 can of Mr Brown (伯朗咖啡) coffee (or any bottled coffee), we say mr brown here simply b'cuz it is wht chris has been drinking.
1 bottle of POCARI SWEAT (or Super SuPau) or any sport drink that replenishes ur electrolyte.
1 mentholated oil stick to rub against ur temples & the back of ur neck where it connects w/ur skull. tht's wher the blood flow to ur head is constricted.

really, it's something to try, even if u also take some sort of pain killer.


The sun?!

I came south to find the sun w/nicky, and 2day i finally found him and i'm ever happier. Sunlite can chg my moods and forget things tht bother me.
