Much like the post on Ben Chong's blog, I am writing, here, about my element, which is not fire, but air.
Air is the element which is free moving, constantly changing direction, and bringing in new and fresh wind. Like any element, I can get angry, witha thunder storm, but it takes a lot for this to happen, and even then, my anger is mostly expressed in the form of loud noises and scarry looks. Never, or mostly never, any physical or direct hurting.
I think I am like air in that I can always give a new perpective on things, can bring new ideas accross from a long way away, and can always quickly fit into a vacuum, making that space better, no matter what the shape of the space was. There is also not much that can hold back air, hence, not much can hold me back from doing what I feel like, or want to do. I don't know if this is being to metaphorical to understand, but if I was mroe specific, it could not be interpreted in the same amount of ways.
Unfortunately, with air comes some down sides. I quickly brush by the earth, never really seeing the things that might matter more than the bigger picture, which I see from being so high up. I am always focussed on the larger goal rather than the smaller steps, etc. This could also be a positive about air, but I'm not sure. I also find myself flying ahead to do something, without really thinking it over first. Not much can hold back air. Also, sometimes I'm only thinking about myself, and where I need to go to make the air pressure zones equal, rather than thinking about what houses, trees and people I'm knocking over on the way. These aspects, I think, summ me up quite well, and I'm sure there's more about air that relates to me, I just don't want this blog to become too long and boring.
So, I am air. Air beats Earth, Earth beats Water, Water beats Fire, Fire beats Air. Crap. Fire's after me. Run. Now.

Dear Cupholder...

Havn't seen you in ages! We really need to catch up some time. I've missed you so much. By that I mean sooooooo much, like a twelve year old girl would write if she was typing this letter. Sorry, my mistake, she would write it like this: Soo0O0Oo()o$@@*^00ooOO \/uC]-[! It really annoys me when people type like that. Good think you don't my oh-so-perfect cupholder of mine.
When we talk, I feel so relaxed and certain of myself. You never tell me that I'm mean, or that I talk too much, and you never complain about me when I don't talk very much, when I let you do all the talking. But even then, you just wait and listen, because you are so patient. When I get angry, and break you, and put mean drinks in you like acid in a spiky cup, you just tolerate it, and never get angry. What would I do without a friend like you? That rhymed. I am the best rhymer in the world.
Cupholder, I hope we can stay friends forever. You are such a good friend. You never yell. You never spit. (Except for that one time...) You never cry on my shoulder. You never cheer me up. Wait, you never do anything at all! You're a bad friend. Bad bad bad bad bad bad bad. I don't liek you. I hate you! I never want to see you again. Let's break up! No, I don't want to be friends anymore!
Yours sincerely,
The Windscreen.

A couple of paragraphs...

Ok, so I don't have any really specific thing to write about here, now. I actually had something in mind, but I forgot it, so now I am just writing what comes to my head first. I figured, that as long as I wrote something, there would be something new on my blog site for all those interested to read. Unfortunately, this may not be the most interesting of things to read.
Basically, I am writing this so that I have more frequent posts on this site, so people can more frequently come to this site for a purpose. But how much better would it be if I had something better to write about. So, I make a proposal, I will ask that anybody who reads this, or visits this site, to comment on this post, as well as others, and tell me what it is you would like to see on this site. What sort of posts would you come back to the site to read? I know not many people visit this site already, but even if those few people could comment, that would be cool. That is all I have to say right now, I think. What a boring post! But who cares? Not me.

25 fun things to do on a train

These things need to be done on a connex train in Melbourne. Otherwise they are not as fun. And if you read this, you have to do what it says next time you are on a train.

1- Sit next to somebody, and whisper in another language into their ear.
2- Stare directly at someone, and keep a straight face. After they've noticed that you're looking at them, wait a while, and then point.
3- Jump continuously, and pretend that you aren't.
4- When there are clearly enough seats, sit on someone's lap.
5- If sombody is eating chips, help yourself to one.
6- Hold a random person's hand.
7- Make it really obvious that you're reading sombody else's newspaper over their shoulder.
8- Sing to the beeping of the doors when they close.
9- Try and clear a dance circle in the middle of the standing area.
10- Protect the disabled seat from normal passengers, even when there is no disabled people on the train.
11- Actually water somebody's garden, and claim that you no longer have to pay your way and buy a ticket.
12- Buy two tickets and put your feet on the opposite seat.
13- Buy six tickets, and set up a tent over six seats.
14- Buy ninety tickets, and have a party in one of the carriages.
15- laugh really loudly. When somebody turns to look at you, look away quickly and stop laughing.
16- When people get on the train, welcome them with a handshake and a hug.
17- When people get off, cry and say you'll see them again... Someday.
18- Ask people about the book they're reading.
19- Ask people if you can borrow the book they're reading.
20- Pretend the floor is lava.
21- When you get on, run for a seat, while making rushing wind noises with your mouth.
22- Pat somebody on the head and say: "Good boy!"
23- Practice your magic on an unsuspecting commuter. Get angry when you realise your powers need to be recharged.
24- Set up a stall and sell spatulas.
25- Sniff uneasially, then slowly make your way to the other end of the carriage, where your nose leads you to one man. When you're uncomfortably close to him, suddenly look away and pretend you didn't do anything, as if you only just realised what your'e doing.

The Jabberwock

`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!"

He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought --
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood awhile in thought.

And, as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! And through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.

"And, has thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!'
He chortled in his joy.

`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

-Lewis Carroll

25 things that I've done

I was thinking about how many things I've done in my life. A lot. And some of those things that I've done have been quite unique, that most other people havn't done. Well, I'll make a game of it. I've listed 25 things that I've done. Go through the list, and mark down how many of them you've done. You get one point for each thing on the list that you've done. You should get a score out of 25. My score is 25.
So here is 25 things that I have done. I have...

1- Been overseas.
2- Written a novel.
3- Bathed in a bath of liquid soap.
4- Discovered a liver, a fish, a kidney, a yabbee and a matchbox car in a bath of liquid soap.
5- Done an aerobics routine in front of 2000 people, in an A-grade competition, and won.
6- Taught aerobics to 30 people.
7- Won an ultimate frisbee competition.
8- Have covered everything in a garden individually with aluminium foil.
9- Eaten (drunk) an entire happy meal that has been completely blended into a thick syrup.
10- Dressed up as Barbie, Marge Simpson, a cow, Shrek, a Teddy Bear and as a Starfish Superhero, all to different parties.
11- Listened to a joke that went for an hour.
12- Told a joke that went for an hour.
13- Ridden down Mt Bulla on my bike. In the middle of the night.
14- Skipped around a caravan park in a Willy Wonka costume.
15- Hidden in a cupboard for two hours.
16- Taped somebody to a pole.
17- Eaten a chocolate picnic bar that was sitting in a toilet bowl.
19- Proposed to someone.
20- Danced a choreographed dance in the middle of a main road, with fifty other people.
21- Watched all three Lord of the Rings extended editions in a row.
22- Roller skated at a roller skating rink in seventies clothes.
23- Been sold as a slave for a day.
24- Filled a room with balloons.
25- Made this site.

I'm sure there are much more, but these are just the first 25 things that have come to my head. If I can be bothered, I'll do another 25 some time in the near future.
If you scored yourself, comment on this post, and tell me how much you got. I'd be intrigued to find out.
