The State of the Universe as it is

I will be flying off to Thailand for another month-long army exercise on Tuesday. It hasn't started yet but I'm already looking forward to the end of it. I discovered some fun things recently but I haven't had the time to fully explore them, so I am hoping to do all those stuff after Thailand.

Among those things is this game which I found really addictive. It's a really old game, about a few thousand year old. After playing several rounds, it stays in my head all day. Whenever I stop doing something that requires concentration, I start seeing black and white circles on a grid. It's as though there is a screensaver of Weiqi installed in my brain. No wonder people can become zou3 huo3 ru4 mo2 when they play the zhen1 long2 qi2 ju2 in tian1 long2 ba1 bu4.

Another fun thing is my platoon-mate lent me a chinese flute to bring home over the weekend to play. I really like the bright, wooden sound of chinese flutes. Unfortunately, right now, all I can do is make airy notes but it's still fun.

Let's see what's in the news today.

1. President Scholar named as one of Top Ten Beauties On Your Block by People magazine cuz his friend, figure skater Sarah Hughes, nominated him. Hey! How come I don't get to meet famous people when I studied overseas?! What? People in Canada don't make the news? Oh yeah, check this out...

2. Woman who sexually assaulted, tortured and killed girls will soon be released from jail. And this is in Canada too! I'm so glad I didn't meet any of these insane people when I was in Canada. Wait, maybe I did meet some crazy dudes, like the guy from Kosovo who kept hearing imaginary noise coming from my apartment and kept complaining about me and telling me we all want peace and freedom and all that shit.

3. 60 percent of Singaporeans use their phones while sitting in the toilet. Moral of the story: Don't borrow someone else's cellphone. 23 percent can't live without their phones for even one day. The machines are already taking over.

That's all for now. Enjoy thy July!
