Getting back to basics....

The Element of Air makes me think of: clouds, space, freedom, brightness, crystal, wind
The Element of Water makes me think of: movement, relaxation, currents, greenish-blue depths
The Element of Fire makes me think of: flickers, heat, attack, thought, consuming
The Element of Earth makes me think of: stability, base, original, clay, unchanged

My views on beauty are changing...
...When I look at gold-encrusted alters and crowns from Gothic Europe I just cringe and dream of simple bamboo ladels dipping out the clear mountain water.

This study on Japanese aesthetics is really changing me!!

But in a way, it is not a change at all.

I am the same way with gemstones: give me agates, hematite, and coral but keep the sapphires and diamonds because I do not like them much at all really... And then there is the fact that I refuse to sail on cruise ships but daydream of sailing an old wooden ship :D

Even a simple gift of a donut or new book will make my heart fly ^_^

I guess I am easy to please :p

Random, yes

I am posting about video games tonight....

Near the end of the game Metal Gear Solid 2, the colonel on the radio starts sending random messages to you. It is rather amusing if not annoying cause the codec beeper keeps buzzing: you have a message!!

In essence, the messages are scrambled from old memories, facts, and knowledge that the main character has, and the messages are simply playbacks of these thoughts in a messed up order...

For example, you get these messages:

I hear it's amazing when the purple stuffed worm in flap-jaw space with the tuning fork does a rablink on harakiri rock!


Kawanishi-Noseguchi, Kinunobebashi, Takiyama, Uguisunomori, Tsuzumigataki, Tada, Hirano, Ichinotorii, Uneno, Yamashita, Sasabe, Kofudai, Tokiwadai, Myoukenguchi.

As it turns out, the last is a list of all the stations on the Myoken Line of the Shinkansen bullet train in Japan!! I was pretty excited to learn what the heck the random words actually meant! :D Yay!

Wow, now I wanna play MGS... MGS3 is coming out soon too! Ohhh Solid Snake in camo - and if you wear the wrong camo, the guards shoot at you! lol!

I love how the MGS games make you think analytically ^_~ Should I use the leaf camo or the tree camo? hmmmm... Should I run past the guard, sneak past the guard, hold him up with my USP-tranq gun, or choke him many choices!

I miss video games right now! lol!!
