|'girl blogging/go away'|
02/ I've given up on trying to leave long comments except for the occasional random one. I've been leaving very brief comments and it just doesn't seem fair to bloggers who work hard on their content. But it is what it is. Good comments are hard to write. There is always this need to be nice; to be kind; to leave good thoughts; to be non-offensive; to make it sound like you're not desperate for attention; to sound like you're not just there so they would visit you in return, etc, etc, etc... I guess I just don't have the patience like I used to.
03/ Is it rude to ask someone who is giving you a ride home and is driving very fast, to slow down so you wouldn't throw up in their car? I mean, it was really, really fast. I just think if you don't want to give someone a ride home, then say no.
04/ In September, after I finished the interview series, I asked readers to leave me questions and I was going to answer them in a post but since there are not many questions, I'm answering them here:
(a) What are your favourite foods?
I have too many to list here but I'll list a few: pizza, chicken congee, egg drop soup, dragon eye fruit, orange soda, cream soda, spam (yes, spam but only if they are fried), bake ziti, spaghetti with tomato sauce, anything Italian (except meatballs), tangerines, lollipop with gum in the center, noodle soup, chicken soup...
(b) Did you read or add any of the books to your reading list that were mentioned?
I only read the one book that was recommended: Writing down the bones by Natalie Goldberg which I think is a rather good book on writing, not so much as instructions but a book that could get you motivated or get interested in writing.
(c) What's your favourite colour?
I usually said 'blue' like the sky after a rain shower but it really depends on what kind day it is and what kind of mood I'm in. This quote from Sir Winston Churchill says it rather well: "I cannot pretend to feel impartial about colours. I rejoice with the brilliant ones and am genuinely sorry for the poor browns."
05/ I am starting to think bloggers don't use blogrolls anymore. It's more likely they use feeders or readers instead so now it's harder to find new blogs because I can't browse someone's blogroll anymore.
06/ Did you know it is not necessary to check the 'Please prove you're not a robot' box if you're at a Blogger/Blogspot blog when leaving a comment? I've stopped checking the box and my comments go through without problems.
07/ I heard this from the tv series Charmed and thought it sounded so perfect for me, well, on most days anyway: "A girl got a right to vacillate."
