I just had a cappuccino bomb.

I wouldn't call myself a caffeine addict, but I feel the need to get my caffein craving fixed once in a while. Its amazing how caffein can create some kind of euphoria, like the world suddenly turns peaceful and bright.

Here in Espresso Royale, you get one free coffee of any kind after the first 10 (Yes, unfortunately you have to invest 10 coffee first). Though not a big coffee drinker, I have got a collection of 3 free coffee already.I always thought I would use the opportunity on some fancy expensive type of coffee on a beautiful saturday morning. But after changing to this new lab, where people rarely start working until noon, my morning time shrinks. Saturday morning hardly exists...eaten, disappeared, vanished in sleep.

This afternoon I was stuck in the library struggling to translate my Mars-ish proposal into English. I had to write the draft in Mars-ish, instead of English, in order keep my thought flow and not to be stuck in spelling or grammer. It was really cold in the library (now we know why the tuition is so high in this school). I felt I would freeze to death if I stayed longer. So, I decided to walk to Espresso Royale to get a coffee.

For no reason, or for self-pity, I decided to use the free coffee opportunity. Glancing through the menu, all the expensive kinds of coffee seemed to be very sweet and complicated, with names longer than 5 words. "Those should be treats for hard-working, not for curing anxiety or unhappiness." I thought to myself. After being indecisive for 5 minutes, I settled on "Cappuccino bomb" because the name was still fancy to certain extent, and the price was still high to certain extent.

"What's in a bomb?" I asked. "It contains four shots of espresso." the brista answered."Cool, I'll get that." I could almost see a nuclear bomb exploding in my heart, creating brownish fume, and then I would float in the air smiling.

Two mintues and forty seconds was the exact time I finished the cappuccino bomb. BUT, wait, why am I not feeling like floating??!!! Whyyyy? I used to feel really sweet after the cheap one-dollar house coffee. Something must have gone wrong with this $4 cappucino bomb.

I threw the empty paper cup into the trash can. A feeling of emptiness ran accross. "Cheater, go to hell." I murmured to the corpse of the cappucino bomb in front of the cafe. Now I know what's in a cappucino bomb: a taste of betrayal and a smell of helplessness.

I allowed myself to be lazy and grumpy and wasted another hour. But don't blame on me,I just had a cappucino bomb.

有點想不起來being silly的場景了. 講些沒營養的無聊話 很智障的笑話 挖苦人的白爛話, 站
在相機或DV前擺些奇怪的動作 玩些瘋癲的遊戲, 那真是很快樂的一段時光, 但那是什麼感覺呢?
是不是人到了某個年紀, 就會喪失being silly的渴望, 所以爸媽叔伯阿姨的聚會很少有being silly
的場景, 也就像我們不再想玩紅綠燈捉迷藏那樣. 我想要處在being silly的氣氛中, 可是我想不起
來那是什麼感覺, 感覺有些失望, 不知道少掉的是心 是場景 還是年紀. 這次回去一定要把握機會
找朋友溫習, 以免再下次回去, 就會老到沒有being silly的渴望.

哈, 寫著寫著, 想起今年在101跨年, 大家在廣場上照相的經過, 哈哈哈, 好好笑喔, 可是照片
到底在誰那? 哈哈哈, 想起來都還好開心, 哈哈, 生活能夠偶爾being silly真是極大幸福!

說穿了是干貝醬,是來自台灣,可是我到美國後,才學會欣賞的東西.

幾天前珜的飯團懷想文, 完全激發我對米飯的渴望, 連著幾天都很勤快地煮飯,很勤快
的原因, 是每天都以為煮了可以吃很久,但都第二天就吃光光.沒有菜, 就是單單純純的飯,
很香很Q很有彈性咬起來噗吱噗吱有澱粉甜味的飯.

今天不知為何, 超級想吃xo醬扮飯. 熱騰騰的飯扮上很多(重要)又香又辣的干貝醬,
真的是超級好吃. 忍不住吃了兩大碗, 香噴噴油滋滋還微辣的干貝飯, 十分滿足!

When we want to test if something is necessary, we take it away
and check the effects.

The preliminary data from lab of life showed that:
(1)things that seem unnecessary to Jao- TV, phone, furniture,
restaurants, newspapers, clothes, bed, car, house, internet.
(2)things that seem necessary to Jao- family, friends, and good
chats.

Based on the findings, in order to keep Jao happy, we may have to
offer her more good chats with friends and family.

Planned budget: 0- no upper limit.
Time to finish the project: a whole life.

為什麼我會站在路邊發呆呢? 因為我在回想
過去兩年發生的事情. 忽然意識到, 這段友誼
是我在這裡擁有的事物中, 不是第一也是第二
珍貴的. 即便將來我拿到了PhD, 它的份量也
難以超過這段友誼在我心中的地位. 天空的
雲很像水墨畫, 若即若離地暈開, 即將失去
最珍貴的事物, 過去的點滴不斷不斷浮上
心頭, 又哭又笑, 未來一直一直來.

她是誰? 每次在路上看到了總會打招呼,
最近也總在神奇的地點遇上, 像是不知
名小巷, 超市, 咖啡廳. 剛剛我站在路邊
瞪著天空發呆, 陷在自己的思緒中, 忽然
有人走過還對我微笑, 我趕緊反射性地
說了哈囉, 等那個人都走過了, 我才意識
到, 怎麼又是這個人. 她到底是誰? 我一
點都想不起來, 那為什麼我們每次都會
打招呼? 她是不是也有同樣的疑惑呢?
想不出來的感覺好痛苦, 她到底是誰?

我喜歡報紙. 看報紙是種忙裡偷閒的愜意. 報紙的
五花八門是書本無法取代的, 很輕鬆地就讓我感到生
存的真實, 滿足我喜歡亂逛的好奇心. 但是美國的報
紙為什麼要那麼貴呢? 麵包店都有 day old bread,
為什麼報社沒有 day old newspapers? 我一點都不
介意收到過期一天的報紙.
