This originally was a “Picture That I Like” post with an array of lovely photographs I have collecting these past few days (by obsessively stalking various tumblrs), but because WordPress is incapable of properly formatting pictures and text together, I’m going to turn this into a holidays post instead. I realize that I haven’t posted in quite a while, and that’s due to a certain government’s censorship policy. But now I’m vacationing in the US, and all is good (until I go back home at least.)
So I’ve been separated from my friend M during this winter break, so I thought I’d revisit some of our old Skype conversations.
* On tweeting Justin Bieber
[6/13/2010 1:29:20 PM] M says: I know. Bieber still won’t reply.
[6/13/2010 1:32:03 PM] S says: He’s so mean.
[6/13/2010 1:32:13 PM] M says: I sent him a Tweet
[6/13/2010 1:32:21 PM] S says: Me too.
[6/13/2010 1:33:30 PM] S says: I am sending him mean tweets.
[6/13/2010 1:33:43 PM] M says: Your response is infinitely better than mine.
[6/13/2010 1:34:12 PM] S says: Justin Bieber is soo douchey.
[6/13/2010 1:34:18 PM] M says: SO douchey.
[6/13/2010 1:34:42 PM] S says: HAHA I’m laughing at his “after party treasure hunt”
[6/13/2010 1:34:50 PM] S says: “How come u can’t find me… I’m by the shark tank”
[6/13/2010 1:35:09 PM] S says: HAHAH

[8/3/2010 10:02:43 PM] S says: You are not “peaceable”
* On Dieting
[8/9/2010 9:45:39 PM] S says: I’m trying to do this thing
[8/9/2010 9:45:45 PM] S says: Where I can imagine eating food
[8/9/2010 9:45:48 PM] S says: And it becomes so real
[8/9/2010 9:45:53 PM] S says: That I won’t need to eat real food
[8/9/2010 9:45:56 PM] M says: That you can taste it?
[8/9/2010 9:45:58 PM] M says: OIC.
[8/9/2010 9:46:06 PM] S says: That way I can “eat” all the fatty foods I want without feeling guilty
[8/9/2010 9:46:11 PM] S says: I am working on cupcakes right now
[8/9/2010 9:46:14 PM] S says: In my mind
[8/9/2010 9:46:17 PM] M says: Well, I do this thing where when I eat food I think is gross, I pretend it’s the most amazing food in the world, but it actually works.
[8/9/2010 9:46:26 PM] M says: It tastes genuinely better.
[8/9/2010 9:46:33 PM] M says: But I’m really gullible, so maybe it’s just me.
* On dreaming

[8/9/2010 9:47:18 PM] S says: I dreamt last night that I was a wizard and I was flying on my broomstick
[8/9/2010 9:47:20 PM] M says: And then, once the world recovered, we went on a school trip and I got attacked by a baby Thunderbird.
[8/9/2010 9:47:24 PM] S says: That is strange.
[8/9/2010 9:47:27 PM] M says: It wanted to eat my fingers.
[8/9/2010 9:47:33 PM] M says: I don’t know why.
[8/9/2010 9:47:38 PM] M says: Anyone else’s fingers should’ve sufficed.

[8/9/2010 9:47:52 PM] S says: Yesterday I was in the car with my friend’s parents

[8/9/2010 9:48:03 PM] S says: I told him to slow down
[8/9/2010 9:48:06 PM] M says: TICKET?!
[8/9/2010 9:48:13 PM] S says: But he said “No. I’m following the police car. So I am safe.”
[8/9/2010 9:48:17 PM] S says: And then we got pulled over
[8/9/2010 9:48:34 PM] S says: And the police went “Why are you following me?? I’m on a mission!! I’m allowed to drive fast!!”
[8/9/2010 9:48:41 PM] M says: AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA
[8/9/2010 9:48:41 PM] S says: And then he said “Sorry. It won’t happen again.”
[8/9/2010 9:48:54 PM] M says: I’m on a mission! hehehehehehe
[8/9/2010 9:48:55 PM] S says: And then his wife leaned over and said “Officer, could you punish my husband?”
[8/9/2010 9:49:09 PM] S says: And the police said “You mean like a ticket? I’m going to give him one anyway.”
[8/9/2010 9:49:20 PM] S says: And then his wife paused thoughtfully and said, “Maybe like two weeks in jail.”
[8/9/2010 9:49:33 PM] M says: I enjoy this family.
[8/9/2010 9:49:46 PM] M says: Imagine if the policeman said yes.
[8/9/2010 9:49:54 PM] S says: The police said he didn’t have enough power
[8/9/2010 9:50:00 PM] S says: But he could ask the husband to take an alcohol blood-test
[8/9/2010 9:50:06 PM] M says: AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
[8/9/2010 9:50:09 PM] M says: What a great officer
[8/9/2010 9:50:10 PM] S says: His wife decided not to, because then we would be late to dinner.
* On literary awards
[8/9/2010 9:54:36 PM] M says: You know we should do this
[8/9/2010 9:54:39 PM] M says: Everytime we release a book
[8/9/2010 9:54:39 PM] S says: If we don’t win the Pulitizer
[8/9/2010 9:54:53 PM] S says: We could always write “Nominated for a Pulitzer Prize” on the back
[8/9/2010 9:54:55 PM] S says: That wouldn’t be lying
We have excellent conversations. Stay tuned for “Highlights from MSN.” Happy holidays everyone! Cheers!
