Nice of You to Show Up

Konnichiwa!

Oh, so you've switched to a more biology-only type of course? Well go you!

Aaaand that is why I have delayed blogging. That and also I have had a HORRIBLE (note the capitals) cough for AGES. Thank you, people who do not cover their mouths. Though I think I first got it from my nephew. Kids have no etiquette these days, pfft!

So, I finally went to the cinema for the first time since I saw the mistake that is MIB 3. Looper, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis. Some will be posting on their blog how it's an excellent film and aaaaall the rest of it. Note: it is a good film. However, the problem with it is the ending. There, I've said it!

It is October 2012! Just wow! My calculator is over 10-years-old now. Think I should change its battery in case it dies on me...

And my Sony PSP, although in a drawer somewhere, is now 6-years-old! Yeah, you think about how old you are and how life has but also hasn't started when you're at this age. How fun.

I remembered a veeeery interesting anecdote a few weeks ago. From when I was last in Pakiland in 2002.

My dad, brother and I went to Islamabad with one of my dad's friends and his son, to eat at some fancy schmancy restaurant. I guess a fancy restaurant these days would be one in which it's safe to eat over there. How nice.

When we were seated, we saw a whole class from a nearby private school having...lunch...at this restaurant. I think this was a Marriott Hotel. Totally makes sense...

After eating what I think was some half-decent food, we were asked whether we wanted tea or coffee. Everyone opted for tea. But this other guy's son and I decided to try a cappuccino. Oh. My. God. Have you tried one of these things?! Disgusting! It's like how so many chocolate-y looking things in the country like cakes and biscuits...don't taste of chocolate! We kept adding packets and packets of sugar - eventually having six in each cup. We took another sip. And STILL it was revolting.

So I guess this anecdote was about how horrendous caffeinated drinks are. Apart from green tea. Which I think everyone should drink. Oh, and have you tried iced tea? Not bad either. But cappuccinos? Oh my word. Just avoid.

PSY! GANGNAM STYLE! Is it not just awesome? I told my brother how I summed up my opinion on this - a review on iTunes of the song simply saying "absolute banger". And it is! No matter what some people may say...

THIS IS AWESOME.

Sweet dreams.

Emad.

Oi! Hello :D YAY FOR FINALLY BLOGGING INNIT
That evil cough ¬_¬ What the hell
LOOPER WAS AMAZING DON'T LISTEN TO HIM EVEN THE ENDING WAS GREAT SHHHHH
Lol, my calculator's also very old... though I think it's from year 9 so slightly younger than yours? You know they wait til exam days to die don't you..
Your life started a while back :| lol. If you sit around waiting for it to 'properly start' you'll miss it- stop anticipating some great beginning, weirdo :P You're almost 22 years down, when do you anticipate it 'starting'?!
Coffee in general is total nastiness, so that's understandable. Tea is nice, especially with multiple sugars :D shhh! lol.
NO IT IS NOT JUST AWESOME @_@
But that video is just life changing. It blew my mind, lol.
Yay!
:)

Hello! I thought that story was really going somewhere as in a Ross Kemp style. Thssk, it ended in a non ode to coffee or did it? Tea is miles better but I adore coffee. Cappuccino is a no no. No amount of sugar will help. Start with americano, its mild and delish. Humaira I disagree, I think life starts when you start earning and 'own' things. Is that what you are thinking of Emad? I was seriously fed up uni in my final year. I love working. Not long now for you guys. Ciao for now.

@Hummus:
Looper had a weird ending, okay?!
Yeah, I want to change the battery in it soon. I do have a "spare" calculator that was given for free but even that is now...2 years old. Okay, so still kinda new =P

@Aunty Em:
Coffee smells so strong though!
I guess I am saying it as a way of not having started working yet. But who wants to be a wage slave! Education forever etc! =D

Y'know, your whole 'the end of Looper = suck' thing has had the opposite intended effect on me as I now want to go see it even more just so I can test your opinion. I haven't been to the cinema since The Dark Knight Bloody Rises! DAMN UNI!!!!

WOW. You and your calculator should go on the Antiques Road Show, pronto.

Cappuccinos are indeed evil devil piss. And the foam? Did you ever see a river with that white scummy stuff that kind of looks like a sheep's died there recently? Just sayin'.

NO THAT SONG IS MOST DEFINITELY NOT AWESOME. AND THE DANCE IS CRINGY AND SHOULD NEVER BE DONE IN PUBLIC. THAT IS NOT HOW YOU COURT A LADY.

Have fun in bio, maverick.
