I just discovered the neighbouring flat's cat, who we have let come to our balcony because otherwise pigeons shit all over it, has been shitting on our balcony. Talk about irony.

I am having trouble keeping fish alive and keeping my snake fed. I'm a newbie to this sort of tank-animal-keeping, and it's definitely irritating. I won't give up, though. Just gotta get on top of that learning curve (called money and patience).

Perhaps there is no Heaven, no Hell, no Karma.
Perhaps, though, consciousness is eternal-- perhaps like a subatomic SIM card of sorts.
You just keep having an existence wrapped around this particle without any regard to how good or bad you were-- without any judgments, and without any recollections of who or what you previously were.

I'm up in the mountains at the moment skiing, and today we had the sort of lightning conditions that lead to a complete whiteout. Diffuse white light in a white landscape, so you cant make out any shapes or any depth in the landscape, because everything is the same shade of white, nothing cast any shadows and there are no highlights. There is real risk falling onto a ravine or off a cliff during that kind of conditions because you can't see the edge, because it too is the same shade of white too. I pretty much grew up on that mountain, so there was no risk of running off a cliff, but it still a humbling and visually interesting experience.
I didn't have my camera with me, but still wanted to share. (Photo from Wikipedia.)
I have no intention of becoming a professional artist, I just aspire to become a really good amateur.

I just realized I don't see Ilaekae post much anymore. I guess he must be busy.
In early 2008, SeaRiver Maritime, an ExxonMobil subsidiary, sold Mediterranean to a Hong Kong-based shipping company named Hong Kong Bloom Shipping Ltd., which renamed the ship once again as Dong Fang Ocean, now under Panama registry.
I had no idea it was still in commission after the legendary incident, but the renaming it went through before finally being turned into scrap makes alot of sense.
Renamed: Exxon Valdez (1986-1989)
Exxon Mediterranean (1990-1993)
Sea River Mediterranean (1993-2005)
S/R Mediterranean (1993-2005)
Dong Fang Ocean (2008-2011)
Oriental Nicety (2011-present)

My acne has gotten so bad that I think I'm finally at the point where I've got scars. *sigh*
