I Scream For Ice Cream

Since things turning this way, the picture above should have been of someone/something I despise. But hate is no good, right? So, allow me to present you one amazing man~~ :P

Go, go, Power Rangers!

Mnyt, ternyata Cuco tampan juga..

But as for me, it is good to be near God. I have made the Sovereign LORD my refuge; I will tell of all your deeds. Psalm 73:28

It was Saturday so you didn’t have to go to the office. No one else was at home. They were in Surabaya for the reason I can’t remember.

But our conversation when you picked me up after school, I remember that. I remember it so well.

Do you know what I buy today?

You asked me that question.

I learn that when people get excited, sometimes they slip out their mind and other can read it so clearly. It was exactly the case with you that day. I screamed my answer with the same if not higher level of excitement. I was so happy because I had never thought that you would buy that. I didn’t even think to make a request.

Later on that day, I played card with Pauline, Michelle, and Ben.

I miss you. I wish you knew.

Proud Of Them

with one comment

I am. Always. With or without reason. This time is for how they write. You can always tell when a person writes from their heart and when they don’t. They certainly do. Ok, even if you object and say they don’t, well, let’s face it, it is really not about how they write.

It is about who they are.

Dedicated to the shrimp and das huhn. (just found das huhn’s blog today, yeah, better late than never). Wonder why they have to choose an animal to be associated with.. What should I choose then? Hmm..

Random Things

An afternoon on one ordinary day, a friend was once asked to accompany me to get a spade. Yup, a spade!

Along the way that afternoon, we met another friend, so off we all went, we all march to grab a spade. Yup, a spade!

A spade, or shovel. Doesn’t matter, cause I surely know what I remember.

Everyone is Happy

with 4 comments

.. being singular. Why?

At first, I was not happy that ‘everyone’ is happy being singular. Why does not it say: everyone are happy?

I asked him the question. I thought I had strong reason, great argument to defeat grammar that had existed for centuries.

There is a sense of lots in ‘everyone’. I always thought that when we said ‘everyone’, we were talking about people.

“No, it doesn’t work that way”, he said. “Everyone refers to each individual, it’s not like we add each individual to a collection so that it becomes a plural noun.”

I actually got it when he explained it that way. I should have said thank you, but I didn’t.

I needed object to hit. I just needed to cry so bad that I picked up a fight, a ridiculous fight… over English grammar. I threw all arguments that I could think of and persisted that everyone should be a plural.

He was very patient. He kept explaining and giving his own arguments. He didn’t let me to hold on the wrong answer. He tried his best to guide me. That was the way he responded to my English question. That was the way he raised me.

I did cry. :p

Now, I am very happy that ‘everyone’ is happy being singular. I’ve got myself a memory of him. It is priceless.

Should he be right here, right now, what would I do?

.. ask him what tenses to use if I want to tell, in narrator mode, a fact that still happens to the day when the story is told? Like the italic lines above.. I can pick up another fight over that.

Or better.. I can simply say,

Happy birthday, Pa!
