Some lady I met for the 1st time told me stuff I should do in order to marry her son who I had never even met. It's terrible.
    it might be awkward, but what if it turns out to be super awesome. maybe the guy was forced into the position as well and might just want to make a new friend. you'll never know if u dont go

    going as a group is ok, but make sure u let the guy's friend/relative know so maybe he can bring a group of friends too. then it'll be the best.

    so you see life as a k-drama?
    nytimes: Every hr you have 10 minutes where youíre not doing anything productive at work, & you canít look at porn. So you make a comment & fulfill this desire to show yourself off as a smarty-pants.

    I told my workmate that I will go out on a group outing with her and her husband, her cousin and her boyfriend. The dude knows as well but we just have not set a date. I am happy to make a new friend but seriously, I am not wife material but I can be a loyal friend.

    I am not going out with that pushy lady's son. I don't really like mama boys or a pushy mother-in-law.

    You can try one of those SAD lights. I bought one about a week ago but haven't used it since even though I've been super sleep deprived I feel wired due to a reading binge. I read the first three books of the Tome of Bill in about 4 days, followed by Rift in the Races, Conan the Conqueror and just started a Weird Tales anthology.

    btw: Tome of Bill was absolutely @#$%ing fantastic! Wallow in geekdom!

    All the housework and attentive? Wow, I got a raw deal

    How did you end up being interviewed by the mother? Did you at least make a crack about your resume, and having "references available upon request" from your previous... um... employers?

    Just downloaded Age of Wushu Beta last night ~7gigs. The Qing Gong videos from the site looked really interesting but if you look at the gameplay videos on youtube you don't see people zipping through the air over roof tops and running up walls. It would be really cool if you can actually do that freely in the game -especially with some of the classic scenery we expect from Wuxia.

    There's probably some limitation there though since it's pretty difficult to do 3D movement with physics in a multiplayer game... or at least to do it well like in Tribes. Who knows, maybe it is the fulfillment of what I've always wanted: Tribes-like mobility in a WuXia themed game.

    Dylan Guo really reminds me of Aaron Kwok? Are they really not related at all? Only 12 years difference.
