The tarot says it all

A rather apt description looking at the fact that I am temperemental, emotional, and generally indecisive when it comes to the most mundane of things in life. I am a complex person after all, extremely difficult to fathom and even more difficult to predict even at my best times when I'm most lucid.

You are The Chariot

Triumph, Victory, Overcoming Obstacles.

The chariot is one of the most complex cards to define. On its most basic level, it implies war, a struggle, and an eventual, hard-won victory. Either over enemies, obstacles, nature, the beasts inside you, or to just get what you want. But there is a great deal more to it. The charioteer wears emblems of the sun, yet the sign behind this card is the moon. The chariot is all about motion, and yet it is often shown as stationary. It is a union of opposites, like the black and white steeds. They pull in different directions, but must be (and can be!) made to go together in one direction. Control is required over opposing emotions, wants, needs, people, circumstances; bring them together and give them a single direction, your direction. Confidence is also needed and, most especially, motivation. The card can, in fact, indicate new motivation or inspiration, which gets a stagnant situation moving again.

The Queen's Breasts

I received this forwarded mail from Joyce and I find it simply hilarious. x)

Once upon a time there lived a beautiful Queen with voluptuous breasts.

Nick the Dragon Slayer was obsessed over the Queen for this reason. He knew that the penalty for his desire would be death should he try to touch them, but he had to try.

One day Nick revealed his secret desire to his colleague, Horatio the Physician, the King's chief doctor.

Horatio thought about this and said that he could arrange for Nick to more than satisfy his desire, but it would cost him 1000 gold coins to arrange it. Without pause Nick readily agreed to the scheme.

The next day, Horatio made a batch of itching powder and poured a little bit into the Queen's brassiere while she bathed. Soon after she dressed, the itching commenced and grew intense.

Upon being summoned to the Royal Chambers to address this incident, Horatio informed the King and Queen that
only a special saliva, if applied for four hours, would cure this type of itch, and that tests had shown that only the saliva of Nick would work as the antidote to cure the itch.

The King quickly summoned Nick. Horatio then slipped Nick the antidote for the itching powder, which he put into his mouth, and for the next four hours, Nick worked passionately on the Queen's voluptuous and magnificent

The Queen's itching was eventually relieved, and Nick left satisfied and hailed as a hero.

Upon returning to his chamber, Nick found Horatio demanding his payment of 1000 gold coins. With his obsession now satisfied, Nick couldn't have cared
less and, knowing that Horatio could never report this matter to the King, and with a laugh told him to get lost.

The next day, Horatio slipped a massive dose of the same itching powder into the King's underwear.

The King immediately summoned Nick.

The moral of the story -

"Keep Your Promise!"

Pauper of paper

I have three more papers for my finals and I'm so bored. It isn't so much bored of studying but bored with nothing to do. Most of the subjects that needed much studying have already past and what's left are the easier ones. Imagine, I have an English paper this Thursday. Me! Taking English? It's compulsory or I would not be wasting time doing it.

Moreover, I received my very first spam on this blog. Take a look at the comments on my last post. Ten comments completely irrelevant to what I posted and on sensitive issues nonetheless. Sometimes it's surprising how much time people waste spamming and frankly I just feel they're suffering from a very bad case of sour grapes.

And the last thing I would like to say is that World's Book Day was yesterday, I kinda missed it. I knew the date but I didn't realize the 23rd was yesterday. So here's to books! Love them and read them. Become a pauper for all that paper. Well, yeah books are expensive you know.

Happy Friday the 13th

And the word of the day is:


Definition: The Fear of Friday the Thirteenth, a form of triskaidekaphobia, the fear of the number thirteen.

I'm even beginning to fear pronouncing it!

A movie review: The Reaping

Just one word describes it all: Hilary Swank. What more can you expect from an actress that has already won two Oscars? Despite what is being said about the movie, I would rate it an astounding A+ for its wonderful, wonderful unpredictable plot. I certainly didn't see that ending coming until it was too late.

What is it about? Well, courtesy of Yahoo!Movies:

A supernatural tale that centers on a myth debunker who tries to prove that a small girl is not the supernatural force behind the devastation of a small, religious Texas town.

I won't say much more. Anything more might spoil the fun for you when you decide to take my advice and go watch it. I'm not the type that goes for horror movies but this certainly isn't one horror movie that I would like to miss.
