first transformers and now this?!
a favorite from my teenage years
i used to watch the cartoon series on tv
i spent countless hours playing the game on my super nintendo
i spent countless money playing the game at the arcades
i was so excited back then when the real life movies came out during the 90's
heck, i even bought the soundtrack to the original movie
and just as then, i'm excited now
they are gonna release a new cgi version movie next year
the teenage mutant ninja turtles
i can't wait!
the trailer looks pretty cool
check it out...

my sister is moving to a new house in a couple weeks
i told her i would buy her a new microwave, but she said she doesn't want one
asked her what she wanted, she said cash
i said no
told her i will give her red envelope cash for her wedding next year
gave her a list of items to choose from
she chose a blender and a rice cooker
so on saturday night, we went to carrefour to buy her the blender and the rice cooker as well as some household items for our own home
the usual suspects becky and jerry came along with the wifey and i
so we do the shopping and walk around the place
spontaneously and out of no where becks and jerry decide they wanna have a bbq
they wanted to go to the park around my house, but it's too dark and it wouldn't be too safe plus there'd be too many stray dogs wondering around
so, where to go?
my garage it is
we buy the grill, which by the way was only NT$45!
buy the charcoal
buy the meat
buy the beer and alcohol
we ready to go!
and bbq we did!
the usual suspects... me, jerry, the wifey, becky plus my old man
some of the grub
some of the refreshments
my old man and his best friend kao-lian
too much kao-lian
our favorite drinking game
it was great
spontaneous, inexpensive and a lot of fun
gotta do this more often

it's been bugging me ever since i first laid my eyes on it
i'm talking about the official ball in this year's fifa world cup
what was the designer thinking?
of all the patterns and lines in the world he/she could have used...
he/she uses maxi-pads?!?!
you be the judge...
let's nickname this world cup's official ball The Maxi shall we!?
if i was a manufacturer / advertising agency of such product...
i'd be all over the ball and world cup right now
that's a golden advertising spot right there
how long before we'll actually see it happen tho'?

and just like that
it's all over
will have to wait another 4 years
brazil was ousted by france to the score of 1-0
france is not even that good this year
they barely made it out of the group matches
but they played a great game and deserved the win
brazil probably got too overconfident
took france for granted
no matter how great of a team, you just never do that
especially with a team that has zidane
you'd think brazil knows better
zidane and france also beat them convincingly in the 98 world cup
well, they'll be back in 4 years and i will continue to root for them
next time around, robinho will get more playing time
watch out world!
as for the remainder of the world cup...
i'm rooting for portugal
