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: "You, on the other hand..."
Kim: "You're too smart and too lovely to even go there."
Me: "My thought exactly."
Estheresque Epiphany #5
Writing while listening to a sexy-voiced audiobook is the ultimate recipe for disaster. I ended up transcribing. Ugh.
You Know Who You Are
Dear Clotpole, thanks for the dinner last night. I know I could have stayed but I chose not to, and I’m not sorry about it. And for your respecting my choice, I’ll be forever grateful. We have gone a long way back and I’m beginning to change my opinion of you. Yes, I’m still calling you ‘Clotpole’. In the past, I called you that because you deserved it in every...
Yet it's only 11 Bafta Nominations...
After watching Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, I know one thing for sure: Leave it to the English to make a spy movie where the most tense scene involves Benedict Cumberbatch requisitioning paperwork.
Thiru, My Dear Long Lost Friend
Thiru: "Esther? How are you? Buried with Dickens somewhere? Wait, that was a decade ago."
Me: "Haha, how true! I do miss the days when I hid in my fort of books and you would always find me at the Dickens section. But since I'm still occasionally buried with books, guess my life hasn't improved very much, hahaha..."
Thiru: "So your way of spending money hasn't changed. Five more years, I'll be able to find you living in a refrigerator box in an alley."
Me: "And you'll still be that globe-hopper dearly missed by me. No, probably not you as a person, but the adventures, that is."
Thiru: "You mean mean girl! Oh, fuck this! Let's arrange something, we should go on a trip together again. Say yes, or I'll just have to drag you along with me, I'll bring some violent force if necessary."
Me: "Just what I need."
Insecure? Get well soon!
Insecurity is the reason why backstabbers are born. They live like a winner but they end up as losers!
BYE FOREVER 2011.
YOU’VE BEEN A BITCH!
Shut up. Let's just have dinner.
Him: "So you like football?"
Me: "Yeah. Big fan."
Him: "What's your team?"
Me: "Depends. But I usually go with Sunderland."
Him: "Mine's Benfica."
Me: "Never heard."
Him: "You're not serious. You say that because you don't wanna discuss football with me, right?"

When I ask whether or not you’re gaining weight again, it is me establishing dominance, mostly over insecure girls. And I do that because I find you rather irritating. Don’t be silly. If you don’t like your body, do something about it. If you like it, stop complaining and make the most out of it. On second thought, I say that not only to insecure girls. I say that to annoy...
It's a thin line, really.
According to Wilson Mizner, a good listener is not popular everywhere, but after a while he knows something. I wonder what Mizner thinks about a gossiper. Never popular anywhere, always thinks he knows everything. ‘A good listener’ is by far the kindest description for ‘a gossiper’.
Unless your love for me meets these three ultimate conditions, never hope for my hand in marriage. 1. Declared 2. Implied 3. Proven
One of my housemates just got back from a trip and she got the three of us a shirt each, with a certain inscription. It says, “Shit you hear about me might be true but then again it could be as fake as the bitch who told you.” Hahaha! Sorry, I couldn’t resist.

You think I’m not listening? Close enough. I’m actually ignoring you to make a point. That’s different.
