Two more down, I'm behind pace
102th day of 2010
This weekend, I put out a couple sites.

One is called Dave's Deals. It's a compilation of online promotions that I've gathered. Right now, it has 20 free gift card promotions. Here's a tasty selection:
- $50 subway gift card
- $500 target gift card
- $250 Ikea gift card
- $500 coach (the bag company) gift card

Don't forget to join the mailing list on the site. Also, I created a pps opportunity (up to 100 pps!) around helping market my new site: http://www.nutang.com/forums.php?thread=471.

The other is my ebook site (that I mentioned in my previous post). I'll release the URL a bit later. Right now, it's pretty much a landing page for me to gauge interest in the topic.

In other news, later this week, I will do something I should have done a long time ago.

The Child Inside
67th day of 2010
What I did has been done and what I done has been did. That is the mantra I have never operated my life under and it has gotten me no where.

This is the final week of my (fantasy) basketball season. It's make or break week for me. If I win this series, then I make it in the playoffs. Otherwise, I will clench my fists into balls of teeth.

Wow, and this (video below) is a creepy blast from my creepy past. Watch it and then erase it from your memories. That's an exercise on effective use of time.



Yesterday, after reading dis and das, I've decided to write an ebook. Today, I started. Tomorrow will be the day after the day I started and 2 days after the day I decided to write an ebook. The next day will be the day after tomorrow. Countless days later will bring us to 2012.

2009 over, 2010 onward
44th day of 2010
Wow, it's almost been a full year since my last post. Since then...

Not much has happened.

But, despite the uneventfulness of 2009, now, in 2010, I am about to embark on a new chapter of life--one that I will capture in little to a lot of detail upon these pages. It will be first of several resolutions that I made for myself this year. In fact, 2010 has the first year I have ever made any New Year resolutions.

With that said, let recount the top 5 FML moments of 2010. The list may or may not be accurate due to lack of comprehensiveness of my memory compounded with the strategic repression of major FML moments.

Here we go...

5. my ipod broke -- For the longest time, too poor and frugal to procure a mp3 player (actually, I still don't technically have one--I the mp3 feature on my cell), I had to live my life without the companion of music during painfully boring times. One example would be running on the treadmill WITH NO MUSIC!!!!! FML!!!!!

4. ceiling leak -- I had a ceiling leak (due to some AC issue). However, I didn't realize until a couple days later, because the sound of the drip was drastically reduced DUE TO THE FACT THAT THE LEAK WAS COINCIDENTALLY OVER AN OPEN SUITCASE I HAD WITH CLOTHES INSIDE!!!!! FML!!!!!!

3. cheap ass company -- My company is French and my company is cheap. My company has had 2 straight years of raises freezes, WHEREBY RAISES ARE CONSTRAINED TO 0-3%!!!!! FML!!!!!! Inflation and the cost of living adjustment is greater than that. So, in effect, I'M GETTING PAID LESS EACH YEAR!!!!!! FML TO THE MAX!!!!!

2. in Europe with no clothes -- Screwed over by time and space and American Airlines, it took me well over 24 hours to arrive in Rome from Los Angeles. Tired, sticky, and FMLing to the max, I arrived in the crappy Rome airport only to find THAT MY LUGGAGE WAS LOST SOMEWHERE ALONG THE WAY!!!!! FML TO THE EXTREME!!!!!

1. stolen wallet -- My wallet was stolen in the metro (i.e. subways) of Madrid. DAMN SPANIARDS!!!!! This was on the last day of my vacation, thereby giving me NO OPPORTUNITY TO END ON A POSITIVE NOTE!!!!! FML TO THE HYPER-F!!!!!

The Zoo of Hangzhou is...
88th day of 2009
The Zoo of Hangzhou is in my stomach. That's a well known Chinese childhood song that I just made up. However, it is clearly a true statement. Allow me to explain.

As most of you don't know and don't care, I spent the more pleasurable half of this month in a part of China called Hangzhou, a provincial city of magic, myth, and mayhem. There, the following creatures were consumed by me...



+ the usual dishes of fish, crabs, chicken, beef, pork, and mystery meat.

Had I been given the opportunity, would I have dined on dogs in cat paw sauce? You know the answer to that.

You know your cholesterol's high...
5th day of 2009
You know your cholesterol's high when your piss smells like butter. Such was the sad state of urinary affairs for Fabio Lanzoni, which promptly led to his notorious catch phrase: "I can't believe it's not butter!"

Anyway, I was chatting with our good friend middaymoon earlier today, and he told me what originally drew him to our community was the history behind it. (He actually put history in quotes, like so "history," but, here, I have decided to remove quotes, because I think it implies an aire of fabrication.) The history of NuTang, as short and sweet as it is long and bitter, starts, of course, on the Island of Ishbu. Many say it actually starts with Papagoya, the inventor of PPGY and later xPPGY technology.

Alas, many have wondered, but no one--to my recollection--has ever asked me, "Where exactly is the Island of Ishbu?" The island is actually closer than you think, but farther than any other place on Earth (if you're positioned somewhere specifically just to make such a condition true). "Is it here? Or, is it there?" Well, actually, it is neither here nor there, but rather, it's jaki-maliakieare.

In other news, it is now 2009. THAT'S RIGHT FOLKS IT'S NOT 2008 ANYMORE!!!! (Sorry, I had to put it in capital letters to put emphasis on that universally known statement.) Is this the year Dinosaurs will return and dominate the world?


You tell me!

Finally, let's all take a moment to revere Dilated. I'm serious.

The slaying of an eggplant
337th day of 2008
So, yesterday, I cooked eggplant for the first time in my life. I made sweet & sour fish and eggplant. The fish tasted a bit interesting, but I got used to it after a few bites.

Anyway, it finally came clear to me why an eggplant was named as such: "eggplant." It's because the eggplant is filled with yolks, ranging from 2-5 for a typical eggplant. Mine had 4, so I should be content. Well, there's a fun fact for all your big kids and little adults to share with your family, friends, strangers, antelope monkeys, citizens of utopia, self-righteous assholes, road warriors, conquistadors, martyrs, saints, playas, ballas, cockroach munchers, inconceivable beings, praying mantii, jungle loafers, murderers, suicide kings, drama queens, little princesses, care bears, poetic puppets, peeping toms, camera chasers, lollipop lickers, astronomical autobots [per the-muffin-man's request], bellowing buccaneers, candid cops, decadent decepticons, elegant elephants, foo fighters, girly gorrilas, hollow hipsters, indigo iguanas, jocular jackals, kung-fu khans, laminated losers, melodramatic mothers, naked nuns, opulant octopii, particular pimps, quixotic quakers, ridiculous rhinos, sexy savants, terrible ticklers, underworld uncles, voodoo valentines, woeful waifs, xenophobic xanthippes, yelling yesmen, and zealous zebras.
