that’s why it’s on 5th position…

Rob: What if I was doing something that can’t be cancelled?
Laura: Rob, what are you ever doing that can’t be cancelled?

Sometimes I wonder whether Nick Hornby ever tried blogging – and what the world would have lost then.

My very own spontaneous TOP5 list of things I prefer doing instead of concentrating on some important papers I actually need to finish soon:

5. cleaning the flat & bathroom
4. cooking
3. watching a movie I’ve had on my list for ages but never came ’round to watch it (time! time is SO precious these days…)
2. playing the guitar
1. blogging

Update: the paper is done and I am wondering how John Cusack could possibly end up in my blog. I mean, look, that man….doesn’t he look like Dustin Hoffman? ‘nyways, High Fidelity is a good story and the movie is nice too. Makes me think of Kevin Smith’s “Clerks“, though, as well as other “i wasn’t even supposed to be here today“+”the soundtrack of our lives and loves”-stories….

  1. The story is so real and it is funny too (Jack Black is hilarious especially the part they discover that Dick has been seeing this gal someone moss….ha ha!!!.

    Best Quote: What came first, the music or the misery? People worry about kids playing with guns, or watching violent videos, that some sort of culture of violence will take them over. Nobody worries about kids listening to thousands, literally thousands of songs about heartbreak, rejection, pain, misery and loss. Did I listen to pop music because I was miserable? Or was I miserable because I listened to pop music?

    Ati cleaning and cooking is on top 5 of things you prefer to do,? You sound like a Mr. Mum:-)

  2. Well, that’s why it’s on 5th position, right? :-)

    Cleaning = gives me the feeling that things are done, some sort of satisfaction, an achievement. At least it doesn’t involve any thinking and is easier to do.
    Besides, yes, I AM the perfect man to stay at home while my Mbuzi takes care of the Mbeca stuff. That is, anything but a 9to5 job for me – have done it all and can’t see any benefit in that… (unless of course I open a record stop like that dude in the story but then you’re bound to those stupid customers that keep you busy with unimportant stuff and other stories).
