Boy was I the sloth today. My friend and I decided to do a chick flick marathon today. So basically, all I did was stuff my face and watch dvds. Hehe. Not very productive. I probably gained a few pounds from being a sack of potatoes.

If you can stand it, here’s the list of the 5 movies we watched:
1) Down to You
2) Kissing Jessica Stein
3) The Wedding Planner
4) While You Were Sleeping
5) Legally Blonde

I’d say it was a pretty random assortment of movies with a variety of actors. Although I didn’t do much, I’m glad for the lazy day since I’m usually out and about doing something.

Tomorrow will be a productive day as I’ll be going on a hike. Yeah, I can’t seem to sit still for too long huh? After all, life is here for us to live it. Why would I want to sit around all day and watch it go by? See. Enjoy. Explore.

So Amabelley recently wrote an entry about one of her friends who’s been trying to figure something out. I thought I’d pitch in my two cents. From what I read, the situation is that her friend feels weird that his gf has had a handful of long-term and meaningful relationships.

I suppose this is a good thing, but can also have a bad side to it. On one hand, it means that she can open up her heart to someone else and love them. On the other hand, many people go through their lives not really having that many people to really love deep down. Perhaps the fact that she’s had many makes it seem like she falls in and out of love very easily and because he loves her so much, he’s afraid one day she’ll wake up and fall out of love with him.

Relationships really rely on trust. Not just the trust that is needed between each other, but also trust in yourself. Trusting your feelings about the other person and trusting that no matter what happens, you will always make it through whatever obstacles that you come across.

We have so few hours in the day where we can really have to ourselves, so why stress out about the past? It’s one thing to stress out about your present day life at work/school/whatever. Then there’s also tomorrow to think about; deadlines/homework/whatever. So why dwell on the past? It’s gone already. You can’t get it back. You can’t change it. It’s done. Hopefully what you gained from your past are fuzzy memories or some of life’s lessons.

I’d say that the more relationships we have been in, the better idea we have of what we’re looking for. The fact that the gf is with him now speaks volumes. He should feel happy that they are together NOW and that he’s not just one of the guys from her PAST.

Okay, so maybe that was three cents.

Well, after about a 3.5 week rest from climbing, I decided to go yesterday and climbed a few routes: 5.7, 10a, 5.9, 10a. My friend managed to push me to do routes with overhangs. Whew, it certainly was a workout.

In reponse to my fur bag entry the other day, Andrey sent me an email. This confirms that feeling the urge to pet that woman’s bag doesn’t necessarily mean I’m crazy:

eek! i had two of those fur bags at one time… i got them for $1.99 each at old navy. they have since changed ownership to my sister, because all my friends wanted to pet my bag!!

Have a great weekend to all. I love long weekends.

Gosh darn it. We lost in our softball game tonight. *frown* They pulled one of those 7th inning rallies on us to win the game. Heading into the bottom of the 7th, we had a 2 run lead, and as they slowly chipped away, we were getting outs. At 2 outs, they got a key base hit to drive in the winning run. Final score: 11-10. Booooo. We’ll get ‘em the next time around.

Here I go again observing stuff on my daily train ride. This morning I was feeling pretty sleepy so I tried to nap while on the train. When I opened my eyes and looked up, I spotted this woman sporting a bag that looked like it was made of fake fur. Man, I was laughing inside because I the moment I saw it, I wanted to pet it. hahaa.

It reminded me of that episode of Full House where Michelle was a baby and while Jesse was holding her near his boss, she was petting his touppee and saying, “Kitty…” Random thought.

Wow, it was actually warm in my area. I didn’t wake up to the usual overcast sky. Woohoo! I would say it was about mid 70s today in the city. The thing is, I went down to Palo Alto for some outdoor volleyball, which I really considered ditching since I knew it’d be hotter down there. I figured, hey, since all those tournaments I play in are in hot weather, I might as well suck it up and get used to the heat.

I had a nice steak dinner at Sundance down in Palo Alto after playing a few hours of vball in the sun. That really hit the spot. Yum. *grin* The restaurant was very nice and the atmosphere was that on the uppity side. I don’t know if it was because we were a table full of Asians, but this one older gentleman at the next table kept staring at us. Maybe he didn’t like the topics we were talking about. So don’t listen to them already!! Stupid old man.

I never really noticed before, but a lot of houses in my area and throughout the city have red painted/tiled stairs going up to their front door. Why is that? Is it because it’s a warm and welcoming color? Perhaps it’s the concrete equivalent of rolling out the red carpet.

I noticed recently that the window in my bedroom had a layer of filth on it. I suppose it’s just not something that people clean because my room is on the second floor and I don’t think taking a hose to it will do the job. So I figured that taking the screen off would allow me to more or less reach the window so I can clean it.

I proceeded to clean the window and grabbed a squeegee to help out with the job. So my window is one of those standard windows where you can slide the glass left and right. When I was cleaning the moveable pane, I realized that I couldn’t get too all parts of it because in order to stick my arm out the window, part of it window has side behind the stationary portion of the window. That means I’ve got really clean windows, except for a 4 inch band of filth! Doh!! I almost wish that I hadn’t cleaned the windows in the first place…

The most random thing happened today. I left work and I noticed that the ground was a bit wet. Then 30 seconds later, the sky above dumped gallons of water for about 2 minutes. Then, as quickly as it started, it stopped. It was strange to see a short flash of rain during the middle of summer. It was also strange because it was partly sunny.

Oh, I saw the funniest thing while waiting for my train. This one girl reminded me of those stick-figure people I used to draw for my school projects for scale purposes. She was wearing these high heels with really long and straight cut pants. I mean, these pants were REALLY long. They were so long that they completely covered her shoes and pretty much fell to about 1 centimeter above the ground. Now THAT’S what I would consider pants that need to be taken to a tailor. I would imagine that it’d be really easy for her to trip over herself, especially since she was wearing high heels.

The things that guys would do to impress a girl can go from dressing up to acting out of character. Heheh. Sometimes I wonder if this sort of thing is necessary.

At the tourney, I met this one guy who played in my pool and he was telling me how he got into volleyball. It turns out that he wanted to impress this one girl, so he said that he played volleyball when it turns out that he pretty much hadn’t so much as touched a volleyball in his life. So he sought out to learn the sport. I laughed because it was funny to me that he would go to such measures.

The thing is, if a girl likes a guy, would she really care if he can or cannot do something? Food for thought.

So some friends and I are planning a roadtrip across the US for the spring. We got together for the first time this evening and hammered out a very rough route. I think we’re being a weeee bit ambitious for our 12 or so days. Since there are so many more months ahead of us, I’m sure things will change. Talking about the trip made me feel really excited about it though. Having something to look forward to always makes life more interesting.

On another note, I’ve noticed that clothes today seem to shrink. Recently, I’ve seen some teenaged girls wearing tops that are too short with jeans that ride low and are too tight. The result? A band of skin showing, along with a ring of blubber being squeezed out from the too-tight-jeans. Sounds kinda mean to say, but who am I to judge, right? Is that appropriate dress for school?
