Donuts Light Up My Life

I was rereading an email my mother sent me about things back home. My two sisters seem bent of fighting each other till death, hurling at the other words Oxford Dictionary makers would blush to include in their dictionaries. I only hope I get to see two of them when I return home, and not just one triumphant one. The value of my two siblings have never been a constant thought in my mind. Now, away from home and missing family life, I would do almost anything to sit with them and engage in the antisocial activity of playing Playstation games. It's funny isn't it? I'm not sure about husbands who come home every night and go straight to the couch, hand on the remote control. I hope I don't do that when I get married. I know that I miss the time playing videogames with my sisters because they were equally involved in the game. They were cheering in their seats, or grim with determination, and mind you, they didn't even have the control in their hands. I miss them both. Min (the elder of the two), won't be home to meet me as she's going to Taiwan for an immersion trip. It's apparently an attempt to make her more "Chinese". Hopefully she'll come back with the ability to cook splendid Chinese food. We could start a small eatery here. I don't know how Louelle (the younger of the two) did in her basketball tournament.
There's nothing like college life. Really. Played basketball four hours for three days in a row. Aching all over. Have to write a paper on how a Gorilla learnt sign-language, and whether it can be considered as a human language at all. Don't think I'll ever have any Gorilla papers to write when I hit the job market. Oh, and the doughnuts.
The doughnuts. Debbie introduced me to the "Boston Kreme" doughnut at Dunkin Doughnuts and I am so hooked. It's chocolate glazed on one side, and in the middle it has a vanilla flavoured pudding center. MMMmmmmmm….Reminds me of a short limerick I read back in Singapore :
Optimist and Pessimist
the difference is droll.
The Optimist sees the doughnut
the Other the hole.
The pastor at church told some light bulb jokes today. Here are some of them :
How many Charismatics does it take to change a light bulb?
Ans : Ten. One to change the light bulb and nine to pray against the powers of darkness.
How many Independent Fundamentalists does it take to change a light bulb?
Ans : One. Any more would be too much cooperation.
How many Christians from old-fashioned, forty year old churches does it take to change a light bulb?
Ans : Ten. One to change it, and nine to tell you how much better the old one was.
How many Baptists does it take to change a light bulb?
Ans : Change???
How many Calvinists does it take to change a light bulb?
Ans : All of them. They would sit around and debate on whether or not the light bulb really exists.
How many New Age Christians does it take to change a light bulb?
Ans : We don't know. They're never around long enough for a light bulb to burn out.
Well these are just meant for a few laughs. No offense intended. I'll head for bed now. God bless you all.
