in the end...

Not to sound too morbid or whatever.... but I have been thinking an awful lot about last words. I like what Mark Twain has to say, as quoted in this article about his final years' :

"A distinguished man should be as particular about his last words as he is about his last breath," he noted. "He should write them out on a slip of paper and take the judgment of his friends on them. He should never leave such a thing to the last hour of his life, and trust to an intellectual spurt at the last moment to enable him to say something smart with his latest gasp and launch into eternity with grandeur."

I don't think i've ever said anything remotely intellectual or gave anyone sound advice or even said anything in my life worth remembering. So I doubt i'm gonna get to say anything smart on my death bed. However, I think a person should say all that needs to be said while lucid, and one should write all that can't be said in a journal.

So while I'm still here, I'll say this: -
Dream profoundly, live loftily, love unceasingly, dance obstreperously, sing unabashedly, write imaginatively, walk gallantly and laugh gleefully.
And The Big Guy... you know he fits into all the above.

And as my fav fashion blogger once said, "Just do the things that make you smile and you’ll always end up somewhere. Even if that place is not anywhere you’d imagined you’d be at the start. ~ Garance Dore"
Now run along and play outside :)

chocolate chip cookies

I've got this craving for cookies. Chocolate chip cookies to be exact. If i could have cookies for breakfast, lunch and dinner; I would. Well I have before.... back in the day when I didn't have to worry about my ass equaling the circumference of the equator. heh.

ahh choc chip cookies. You complete me. Which is why I'm in a pickle right now. I can't have any! Because, I decided a perfect smile was worth the pain and sacrifice, I got my braces done. Investment of a lifetime, so they say.

And that night, i dreamt I could never ever eat chocolate chip cookies again. Like ever. Owh the horror! Maybe it was cause my doctor said to stay away from biscuits and crunchy food unless its the dunk-able kind. But dunk my choc chip cookies?? NO WAY!

So here I am with this insane craving, eating my 'sup sayur'. sighh. Twas a painful weekend, but guess what...i hear it's gonna get better! I've just got 2 more teeth to extract and then the back portion of my braces gets fitted in. SO that's a few more weeks of porridge and baby food. Oh Joy! :|

man on fire

I'm a big fan of Denzel Washington. Not just cause he's got the whole tall, dark and handsome package. Well that's helped! But he's also just amazing at what he does. I've watched tons of his movies and I can still replay scenes from a lot of them, scenes that have blown me away or moved me someway or another.

I was reading an interview he did with Relevant Mag. And in it he says, "I was reading Proverbs, so I prayed for a dose of wisdom and understanding. I can't get any more stuff, any more successful, but I can get better, learn to love more, learn to be more understanding and gain more wisdom."

Now doesn't that sound wise? He really did get his dose of wisdom. :)

Read his interview here.
