Only A$800 each. That is pretty good value compared to
the current generation of MP3 with 1/20th the storage at
75% the price.
I’ll just go ahead and order one for each of us
and assume Ross will approve later!

I have a competition in me. I want no one else to succeed. I hate most people… There are times when I look at people and I see nothing worth liking… I see the worst in people. I don’t need to look past seeing them to get all I need. I’ve built my hatreds up over the years, little by little… I can’t keep doing this on my own with these… people.
— Daniel Plainview, There Will Be Blood. Or was it me saying this? :) The movie, or the character, won’t let me go.
There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more,
From these our interviews, in which I steal
From all I may be, or have been before,
To mingle with the Universe, and feel
What I can ne’er express, yet cannot all conceal.
— Lord Byron (seen in the movie Into The Wild)
Three times in less than a year, three right feet inside running shoes have been found near separate islands in the Strait of Georgia. Police don’t know if there are any links between them. Speculation in the region is rife, including that the feet were from slaying victims or they were the remains from drownings. Police haven’t reached any conclusions.
Then consider yourself one of the good guys.
— Benjamin Linus, LOST, Meet Kevin Johnson, s04e08
He wants to survive. And seeing as how a week ago you had a gun to his head and tonight he’s eating pound cake, I’d say he’s a guy who gets what he wants.

I’m heavier at this moment than any other time in my life (past and future). I’m writing this as a promise to myself.14 March 2008 - 12:53 | Tags: life, self
