Life at an Intersection

Chicago Phoenix, indemnity bonds, journaling, really really really want a zigazig ah, travel, books, travel books, relationships, values. It is hard to pinpoint precisely, but I'd say about 82% of what you read here is true. The rest is fictional nonfiction.

I Like

I like how the girls in my life take care of me. Sending me home from work with food, saying "Awww" a lot, asking me questions and giving me unsolicited advice. Sometimes I take girls for granted, but sometimes the little things they do can melt my heart.

I like how my RSS reader captures your blog posts, even the ones that you have second thoughts about later and remove. I'm glad I got to read that, it made me hurt for you, but now I'm not sure what to do with the information that I have. I want to help. How can I help?

I like the ramen noodle soup and general vibe at this pan-Asian restaurant near my bank - a truly unlikely location. Sofia and I went there yesterday afternoon after work, and it was the best thing I've tasted in a long time. Not exactly the way I remember it, but familiar enough and fantastic in its own unique way.

我喜歡說中文,可是我的中文不好. (I like speaking Chinese, but my Chinese is bad.)

I like Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls from the can that explodes on Sunday mornings.

I like The Wire, and chatting late into the night with some cool guy that I just met, and people with different cultural backgrounds that want to share with me what that culture is like, and Dave Eggers, and old friends, and walking and walking and walking, and exotic but easily pronounceable names, and making plans but not following through on those plans, and going places in the backseat of a car though not while tied up.

I like French movies lately. When was the last time you saw a bad French movie? Never, that's when. I'm halfway through Paris, Je T'aime right now. What a cool, cool, fascinating, funny little movie. Recently I watched Tell No One, Persepolis, and Ma Vie En Rose, too. And what about Ratatouille? One of the best French movies ever.

You need to see I've Loved You So Long. It's French, and it's great.

Words That I'm Living By - 5/2/2010

Time, as I've known it
Doesn't take much time to pass by me
Minutes into days, turn into months
Turn into years, they hurry by me
But still I love to see the sun go down
And the world go around

Dreams full of promises
Hopes for the future, I've had many
Dreams I can't remember now
Hopes that I've forgotten,
faded memories
But still I love to see the sun go down
And the world go around

And I love to see the morning
as it steals across the sky
I love to remember and
I love to wonder why
And I hope that I'm around
so I can be there when I die
When I'm gone

I hope that you will think of me
In moments when you're happy and you're smiling
That the thought will comfort you
On cold and cloudy days
if you are crying
And that you'll love to see
the sun go down
And the world go around
And around and around
