Hold on to what is good even if it is a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe even if it is a tree which stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do even if it is a long way from here.
Hold on to life even when it is easier letting go.
Hold on to my hand even when I have gone away from you.

WARNING!!!! if you know me personally, you may read my diary, but if you do, you take the chance of hearing things you don't want to know, misunderstanding what I've written and being hurt by it. If you are unsure if it is ok to read, save yourself and me the grief and heartache, and ask first!!! Please note that this is a DIARY, ie my subjective feelings, hearsay, suppositions, and outpourings of ranting of the moment. It does not represent objective news, the whole of what I think of a topic or someone, or even a thought-out representation of any of the above. Keep that in mind. Thanks. * Here is a Diary Etiquette Read Me.

Homemade Shisha Hooks my Eye

Well, I am reading emails and buddy lists and whatnot, and after looking at my stats, found someone got to me via googling "thicker hookah smoke" of all things. Which lead me to this fascinating page of scientific research... I don't know if I learned that much, but it was totally up my alley. Me who ruined my stepbrother's birthday cake in 1978 by deciding I had studied cake recipes and "knew" the general proportions of ingredients. I ruined about $20 of flour, eggs, chocolate etc to end up with this rather tuff tasteless (though chocolatey!) mountainous mound. hehe.

I think this guy and I would've understood each other. Yay to doing it from scratch (though I will continue to favour Al Fahkir store-bought hookah tabacco, yeah!). For your edification and entertainment: The Search for a Homemade Shisha Recipe. hehe.

I shall write more later. If you read this now, come back tomorrow, eh! That means after 7am on Wed. March 24. Oh goddamn, as I wrote that I realized that March 25 is my brother's birthday and I haven't sent him a prezzie or card. That's what email and phones are for I guess. oops!


Later! (I will have some photos from my launch last night... the guy who made the webpage about it gave me permission to snap some jpegs! yay!)

1:09 am Here are a couple subject lines in spam lately... I don't know about you, but I feel they are practically poems! :)

Better vocabulary than I see on most days! hehe. They are spams for watches of all things. No relation whatsoever. Tah!

3:03 am A quizilla I did last week:

Birds Chirping: Sweet and mellow, you are the
familiar and pleasant sound of birds chirping.
You are very down to earth and love the
outdoors. You show a love for simple things,
like the quiet whisper of the wind and the
crackling of the fire. You make people feel
secure and are a great friend. (please rate my

What Sound Are You?(now w/ pics)
brought to you by Quizilla

You have the eyes of a hawk. You're very much aware
about your surroundings and the situations that
you're in. People can't touch your things
because you would immediately notice what's
been touched or what's missing. You can analyze
people's thoughts and actions quite well.
That's good for you. Don't lose that sharp
vision of yours.

What Animal Eyes Do You Have?

That last one I got by visiting Chaosdaily's. I got the same results as her. It's a fun quiz.
