░▒▓█ The Shortest Therapy Ever - New Year's Day

I try to hold back my laughter whenever I see all those apparent overachievers who have been carefully preserving their lives being extraordinarily mediocre in everything ever possible wait unitedly with bated breath for The End - 31st December - to end.

When it does they suddenly scream like they had found salvation and strength (other than their parents), becoming just as permanently recharged as their peers who came out of Anthony Robbins' motivational seminar.  The euphoria usually wears off in just a few hours and of course for the nostalgic extremists, one day.

Then they'd be wheeling themselves happily back to the same behaviour set that consists of whining, drinking, longing and of course crying that they're most familiar with.

- Life of a Butterfly -

Don't weep at my grave, for I am not there,
I've a date with a butterfly to dance in the air.
I'll be singing in the sunshine, wild and free,
Playing tag with the wind, while I'm waiting for thee.

My tears were that of laughter! While I'd be playing diamonds with Lucy in the sky. Like real.

░▒▓█ My Christmas Presents

Around 7 minutes close to the concluding midnight a miracle happened: I decimated an Akuma user using the Dictator!!! I wanted the Super Original one, but unfortunately the controls on the opposite side are cranky, and it didn't come out.

But it was good enough to let me do the job regardless, although I was still disappointed with the selection.

It was a one token free-for-all fight against an elderly Asian guy and I gave my best.

The next piece of good news I want to share with you is a well-received comment on a web log entry on the rising popularity of people who need anger management on Facebook. It resulted in this web log receiving an incoming link too. Big thanks to the readers, and especially the author who made the decision.

Okay there'd be no more unintentional cosplaying of retired elderly statesmen having a good time with the people and the press in a public forum haha.

These are the priceless presents with a key ingredient money can't really buy - brains.
