Listen to Her Advice

While talking into the late night yesterday, a church friend (the same person who asked me about my idea of the future spouse) told me that when it comes to girls, it is best to listen to other girls' advice or opinion, just as we guys are much better at judging other guys.

I guess that means I should listen to my sister...? Especially since I tend to see things she saw only after several months, if not years, gave passed. (When it comes to girls, of course.)

While listening to Ryan Payton's podcast, I was thinking, 'What if I make a weekly podcast that my friends can listen to? I'll upload them on this blog where they'll be able to read my posts and listen to my ramblings.' Of course, I won't do such pointless stuff since I don't talk much in real life anyways, but that's not the point.

The next thing I thought was where to upload the recordings, and that's where it came to me: What if there's a webservice where users can record, edit, and distribute their podcasts? It will come with a way to embed the recordings into their blogs, and also a way for others to subscribe to it via RSS or iTunes. It will have a few samples of music clips for users to insert as an opening/ending clip.

Although YouTube is currently a huge trend, I don't think every single person on Earth really wants to record their face and distribute it. While this can be said to their voice recordings, I am thinking there are more who're fine with their own voice than their appearance. And people do like to chat about anything.

So, YouTube of Podcasts. There you go.

I should tell this to WoongKi hyung, who asked me for an idea on web service.

EDIT: Oh, I took a closer look at the page I got that picture from, and it is actually talking about Podcasting. It even has a long list of websites for Podcasting. I guess I'm just slow. :d

With a Boom, It Went.

It didn't look like this(wish it was this cool!), but rather like a small dot on the sky.

Finally saw an F-22 Raptor taking off with a safety chase F-16. ..Or F/A-18. Not sure which. But anyways, it was rather quick and straightfoward encounter; They just took off and disappeared into the far side of the sky.

But it was exciting neverthless!!

Ex: Nougatocity From WoW Made Me Feel Even More Miserable.

No, I'm not saying I'm back to Wow. It's just something a Snickers bar taught me today:

Nougatocity. A heightened yet fleeting state of accomplishment that makes you realize how unbelievably unmotivated you normally are.

A fleeting humour I felt from this definition made me realize how unbelievably unmotivated I am lately.

It's All About the First Answer

I am aware of my tendency to fall for girls that are pretty to my eyes. But whenever I'm asked what kind of girls I like, I hesitate to answer just "pretty girls." I guess saying it makes me feel shallow. So, I always avoid saying just that, but add, "who doesn't like pretty girls?" after reciting what kind of girls I don't like. No airheads, no stuck-ups, no selfish ones, and so on.

But last Sunday, while having a dessert with a church associate, I was again asked the same question. After several dodging and ducking, it came to the inevitable topic, and I told him about this one girl I was attracted to at the church. Being an old church member, he was able to figure out who that was, and told me that I have an eye for pretty girls. Well, I didn't know how to respond to this, but took it as a compliment.

But then, the real question came:

"What kind of girls do you see living with in future, making a family and spending rest of your life with?"

I know that by contemplate on this question, one can figure out in what order one examines, if you will, possible future spouse. However, I think, with ample time to think about it, people can formulate a nice sounding answer that isn't quite the truest to one's self. But when asked in the middle of conversation... I'd say the first thing that comes to mind is probably is the most honest response.

So, at that moment, it struck me, the most important aspect of a girl that I look at. It was... the look. When I pictured my future spouse, she was gorgeous looking. Only after that came nice mother, good wife, good cook, responsible, and on and on and on.

Although you may think this is pretty trivial thing I'm talking about here, but because I got so used to rationalizing my preference by adding extra bits and pieces, it was quite a shock; I really am pretty shallow. And have high standards. wonder why I can't find a girlfriend.
