if "peter pan" had been written around now, they wouldn't have said a fairy dies every time someone says they don't believe in fairies." they would have said "some good in this world dies every time someone uses internet explorer." there are few things that aggravate me more than microsoft internet explorer. i try really hard not to judge people, but if you use IE, i can't help it. please start using a real browser

i do not like microsoft.

i pretend to be able to speak chinese. people who don't know chinese believe me. people who do know chinese are generally too polite to tell anyone otherwise.

i am a chicagoan, born and raised, and i'm very proud to say such. although i have much german, irish and english blood, i consider myself to be primarily of belgian descent. and i am exceptionally proud of this.

there are two facts that i am trying my best to accept, but still break my heart:

  • i will never be an old chinese man
  • i will never be able to grow a beard
in time, i hope will be able to come to accept this.

a wise man once told me not to trust anyone with well manicured facial hair. i am twenty-four, and this has proved to be very among the wiser things anyone has ever told me.

my favorite fictional vampire, spike, described love as follows: "you'll never be friends. you'll fight and you'll shag and you'll love each other 'til it kills you. love isn't brains, children, it's blood. blood screaming inside you to work its will. and i may be love's female dog*, but at least i'm man enough to admit it." right on, spike.

i don't particularly like cars. i really don't like cities that require the use of them.

i play guitar. i could not bring my guitar to china, but i hope to find one while i'm here. playing my guitar makes me happy.

i just purchased an iPhone 4. which means i will have a super new mobile device. even more super, perhaps, than the one i had before. and it's 32gb!
