Every now and then, I find myself going on Youtube and playing one particular video: The Hobbit trailer. Despite my undying love for the Lord of The Rings series, it is this odd feeling from listening to the theme song that draws me in, every single time. Odd, in a nice way. And I so very much appreciate it that the song is in English, and not in some made-up language (not that I oppose, it would...
Kim: "I don't care what people say about being stuck in an icebox. I'm loving it here in Europe. Winter is the best season for us who hate shaving our legs. I mean, you as someone who lives in the tropical country should understand what I'm saying. You and your love for wearing shorts."
Me: "No. Leg-shaving is the least of my concerns."
Kim: "Is that so?"
Me: "Yeah, people here are too busy checking out my bum to notice my leg hair."
Kim: "I think you're right."

Me: "Just what I need."
