fortune

I’ve had two friends on TV shows get blessed in a big way. One friend was on “Ellen.” She was nominated for a segment and was given a nice chunk of cash. Another friend was on “Wheel of Fortune.” He competed, figured out the final puzzle and also won a nice chunk of cash. I’ve…

a good laugh

a good laugh

Laughing is really important to life. If it didn’t exist, maybe mankind wouldn’t exist. If nothing could make you laugh then maybe life wouldn’t be tolerable. Happiness and joy are really important, but could you be happy and joyful and not laugh? Probably not. I like seeing people so happy that they start laughing and…

It was the afternoon/evening rush hour. A line of cars waiting at a short signal. This street is always packed during this time. As I walked by, I heard one car honking a very long honk. It’s when you hold your hand down on the horn and not let up. It’s shorthand for extremely angry/agitated.…

And food is a universal topic as well as a way to connect with a foreign culture. I’m sure that…

random June thoughts

random June thoughts

In LA there’s a “season” called June gloom, which is basically cloudy days with cool temperatures. For locals the lack of constant sun can turn someone into a depressed person, as if they are severely deficient in Vitamin D and moping about as if the world is ending. Personally, I love the June gloom. The…

my favorite TV show

(no spoilers here) The fourth season of BBC’s Sherlock is on and two of the three episodes have aired. I was really hoping for it to be more serious and fun than the last season, which wasn’t that serious and rather silly at times. It’s been more serious for sure, yet it’s bordering on ridiculousness at times.…
