My love

No it's not my compura computer this time -- it's a game. Table tennis. I have a tendency to become obsessed with anything I take an interest in, and this game wouldn't be left out. My Wednesday evenings at the YMCA are such an important ritual that when she was putting me up on the staff roster I said to my boss,"I can't work on Wednesdays because that's when I play ping pong."

Recently I ordered a training DVD and have been downloading lots of matches [totalling over 5GB in the last three days] featuring Timo Boll [ranked #3 in the world -- for some reason I don't like him. The guy wins too much -- I was so happy when it turned out he was fairly trounced by Samsonov in one of the matches], Wang Liqin [#1], and my very own Joo Se Hyuk [I love to see this guy slow down those offensive players, and once he gets on the offensive, he throws them off-balance].

Just had to rant today. Thanks to everyone who dropped by to wish me a happy one. Greetings also to CalabarGal and my big sister Afropinay for putting something up on their blogs.

Here're Zoran Primorac and Kim Taek Soo going at it.

  2. lol… I wanna get into a sport other than shopping forreal… well.. does makossa dancing count?!?!?… you know what.. I wanna learn how to um do the cancel thing.. the thing you did where you cancelled the compura and wrote computer instead(lol.. i’m so clueless… seriously.. between you and londonbuki… i’m gonna be openin my own computer company in the new few months.. i’m learning that much.. thanx much.. dont know if i really thanked u for helping me restore my blog… )

  3. Keshi, it might come as a surprise, but I never really liked music until last year. I think staying at home for one boring year after graduation from high school opened me up to the idea that books aren’t the only interesting things in the world.

    Overwhelmed, I actually didn’t fix your blog. I was out when the message came and when I got there, it was already fixed. Magic, or did LondonBuki get there first?

    Azuka, I totally feel you. When I take interest in anything, I get obsessed about it too. Like when I fell in love with X-Men. I watched the DVD over and over and over. When I got my laptop, I carried it EVERYWHERE. When I got my digital camera, i took pictures of everything. Right now, I’m obsessed with the MP3 player on my phone. I was awake till 4am this morning listening 2 my MP3…dunno why. It’s not like I’ve never heard the songs before.

    Glad I got u with my post. Hehehehehe
