The Surest Way

The surest way to lose your readership is to cease blogging since October 10th... I have pretty much blogged at least five days a week for 18 months now and then last week I go without blogging. I feel I have betrayed my faithful readership, which is just not on! I wish to thank all those who commented on my last little post. It is always good to feel loved!

So last week was basically a family week which meant no chance to get on the computer. I don't like to talk about my family here, but they are a big part of my life. Nope, no family here, this is all about me, my photos and observations on the way things are. I have to say that I have really changed a lot in the way I blog. I started out with quite a political edge, but now I see that my energy in that is best served elsewhere. This blog is more about entertainment so if I can entertain each and every one of you just a little bit with each post, then I think my job here in blog world is sorted!

So what has been happening in the past week? Lots of gory deaths and the usual misery around the world. If you want to know more, check out your local paper or one of the links on my links bar. For me, it's all about what I put in my journal which has been sadly neglected this past week also.

The first thing that I came across flipping back in my journal is my comment about big sunglasses. What is it with women and those enormous sunglasses? You know the ones, the ones that cover half the face with each lens as big as the moon. To me it just looks awful. Why cover your face like that? When I am finally president of the world I am outlawing those things on pain of death. It is the only way...

I am reading a book about King Alfred the Great at the moment. There is a part talking about Anglo Saxon kings in other parts of England at that time and one of the kings was named Wiglaf. That's billiant. However it can't compare with Wigmund, or my personal favourite Wigstan! Wigstan was actually worshipped as a saint after his death for a while, although it doesn't look like it stuck. Now, if there was still a Saint Wigstan, I would certainly convert to Catholicism right now!

Home school zealots! What's with these people who feel they should lock away their kids from the real world and then go out of their way to prove how 'normal' they are? News for you freaks. They ain't normal!

Clint Eastwood as a director. Has there ever been a more miserable man on this planet? He goes from the greatness of Dirty Harry, yes greatness, to the misery and utter despair of Mystic River, Million Dollar Baby and Unforgiven (if you haven't seem them, my advice is don't! If you have, I recommend therapy to block the memory!). Oh how I miss the old kickarse Clint. Please come back!

I was in a discount shopping mall in the weekend and stocked up on books with rock bottom prices. One of them is the biography of Neil Armstrong. A really interesting bloke. It got me thinking, who is the most famous person alive? Is it Neil? Is it Sir Edmund Hillary? Is it Bush :(? What do you think?

Must blog a lot this week as on Saturday I am off to Korea for two weeks. I hope you all don't miss me too badly!

San Nakji for President!

So you didnt like the Iwo Jima movie?


I liked Million Dollar Baby

Sounds like you have been doing lots of interesting random thinking

The most famous person alive is the proud Zinedine Zidane, the second one is Jonah Lomu and my son E. (no complete name of a familly member here)said to me: SN is so lucky, he can meet this idol when he needs to discuss with him about world's business.

Happy you are back, SN, I was just wondering if it was time to remove the link to your blog because it was such a long time !

Cergie said...

Hi, san nakji. Careful what you say about homeschooling! :) Six of my nephews and nieces are being homeschooled and they're some of the most wonderful young people I know.

Have a great trip to Korea.

I'm soooooo glad your back!! But I'm gonna miss you sooooooo much when you go on your trip.

*Korean stamps* *Korean stamps* hehehehe

You've got some great thoughts going on!! I don't know about the huge sunglasses either! I can't even wear them anyway. Not with prescription lenses, hehee.

Hope you are having a great day. *HUGS*

Hey, you're coming to Korea soon. I've tried the Coldstone and it is indeed good. Don't forget to pack your radiation suit.
