Amazon.com's Significant Seven Questions to James Frey (and Moi)



I have been reading "A million little pieces" by James Frey and it really is electrifying! As I go through the pages I realized that I have so much in common with this guy. Like James, I also think that the Tao De Ching contains so much wisdom and makes more sense than the Bible, I love the way he offers no excuses on why he is the way he is. He's human, I admire the "Fury" that he emphatically conjured and I also can relate to this. And he also has trouble receiving hugs (just like me!). Oh well, enough of my babblings. I present the answers of James Frey (and also mine... gosh, I can't resist giving my own)... I also would like those words in my epitaph please...
(J - James, N: Me)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q:What book has had the most significant impact on your life?
J: Tao te Ching by Lao Tsu. Completely changed how I think, behave, live my life. Nothing else comes close.

N: Same and of course a handy companion to the Tao De Ching is the Bible.
----
Q: You are stranded on a desert island with only one book, one CD, and one DVD--what are they?
J: The book would be the Tao te Ching, the CD would be some compilation of love songs from the 70’s and 80’s, and the DVD would be highlights from the history of the Cleveland Browns.

N: The book - hmmm.. tough one... only one... hmmm... The Bible (old habits die hard). CD - a beatles album and the DVD will be the Lord of the Rings (the return of the king).
----
Q: What is the worst lie you've ever told?
J and N: No way I can answer that.
----
Q: Describe the perfect writing environment.
J: I've been working at the same desk since I started writing. It's old and beaten-up and black. The rest of my workroom is empty, except for some crazy sh-- on the wall in front of me: pictures of people I admire, reproductions of artwork I dig, sayings that motivate me, things like--bare your soul, be bold, page a day motherfu--er page a day. I listen to music while I work, have a pile of nicotine gum and a couple cans of diet coke. My dogs are usually a couple feet away from me. I've always worked this way, probably always will.

N: Nothing much, just a comfy chair, coffee and chocolates, Pilot sign pen and notebook or a laptop will be nice.
----
Q: If you could write your own epitaph, what would it say?
J and N: "Loved, lost, laughed, left."
----
Q: Who is the one person living or dead that you would like to have dinner with?
J: Winston Churchill

N: John Lennon
----
Q: If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
J: Immortality.

N: I like to have telekinesis. So I can do my chores without standing up... (lazy libran trait hehehe )

Hello, it's me!

It's been awhile since I have shared something on this space about my thoughts and my life. Well, where do I start? Maybe just like an old good friend, I will try to give you some highlights on the past years when I was not blogging.

The biggest thing that happened to me so far was I got my Australian citizenship. I know right? I know that it may not be a big deal to others but for me, this is something that I have tried to work on for the past 5 years.  My kababayans might say that I am ungrateful, but we cannot discount the fact that with a blue passport from a country like Australia, I can travel to many countries - visa free without immigration officers trying to catch my eye and check if I am planning to do something illegal on their country.

No offense, but every time I stand on the immigration line going into another country, my heart always work double/triple time because I am too anxious to be deported back to my country even if I know that I have the proper visa.

The Lesbian Lifestyle

It's been about eight (8) years since I came out as a lesbian. So much has changed since then. I never in my wildest dream thought that I will be with someone who loves me as much as my partner does and I never realized that I am capable of so much love.

I gained more than 50 pounds. You'll never realize it but the weight creeps in. It seems to be proportional to the amount of happiness you're gaining. Thus, if weight is the price I need to pay for being happy so be it! I would rather be plump and gay than thin and grumpy. :)

All of my friends are straight women and gay guys. I have a few lesbian friends (about 3 I think) and that's it. Not having enough lesbian friends is not a major problem for me since I don't think I fit into the lesbian lifestyle.

1.) I am not a radical feminist.
2.) I don't really think that all men are evil (ok some are but we also have evil women :)).
3.) I like green jokes and other politically incorrect jokes as …
