It started snowing in my town today. It's our first "major" snowfall, and that means that winter is officially here. It's not that cold, -7 approx, but not too bad.  It will hit -20 soon enough. Plus windchill. Oh boy.

I like snow. I think it's cold and pure and soft. I love snow a lot more than flurries; flurries fall, but melt before they can leave an impression. A bit like false hope.

But my favourite part of winter is that fact that there is no darkness. People usually think that when winter rolls around, it gets really dark, really fast - partly true because the sun now sets at 4:30pm - but I can see more on winter nights than on summer nights. So much light, both artificial and natural,  reflects off snow that there can be no darkness. I don't think I can really describe it properly,  but it's a very comforting.

I'll try to take a few pictures. Maybe that will help.

I think my life would be a lot more exciting if it had theme music.

Oh well.

Okay, no, Wikipedia didn't make my year, Arakawa the mangako for Full Metal Alchemist made my year. By announcing that there will be a second season for FMA! I am so happy. It's like finding meaning in my life. Seriously. I can get through chemistry just thinking about this now.

This is what Wikipedia reported:

In the 20th manga volume, Arakawa announced that a second Fullmetal Alchemist anime television series is currently being produced. Earlier speculation from a purported document leaks has Bones again acting as the production company and Yasuhiro Irie taking over as the series director. The title series is expected to premier in April 2009 with the same name of the previous series.

w00t!

My friend vidalsdauphin, (whom I've never talked to unfortunately) asked his friends to answer the following 36 things about themselves. It's pretty cool, so here I go:

01) Are you currently in a serious relationship?
Nope.

02) What was your dream growing up?
To be a marine biologist. And a food critique.

03) What talent do you wish you had?
Be good at math! No, sorry, that's super lame. I wish I could sing (this wish is actually for my friends and family who have to listen to by glass-breaking voice every second because not being able to sing never stopped me from singing).

04) If I bought you a drink what would it be?
Cranberring juice.

05) Favorite vegetable?
Cauliflower. Hands down.

06) What was the last book you read?
"Kafka on the Shore" by Haruki Marukami.

07) What zodiac sign are you?
Aries.

08) Any Tattoos and/or Piercings? Explain where.
My ears. Got them when I was two weeks old and never wear any earings so I suppose that doesn't count.

09) Worst Habit?
Sleeping in the middle of boring conversations.

10) If you saw me walking down the street would you offer me a ride?
Most definitely.

11) What is your favorite sport?

14) Worst thing to ever happen to you?
I got into university.

15) Tell me one weird fact about you.
I collect tea cups and coffee mugs. Seriously.

uhhh... give you tea?

18) What was your first impression of me?
Can't say... yet.

19) Do you think clowns are cute or scary?
Completely indifferent to them. Actually I just don't understand the point of them. They're neither entertaining nor educational.

20) If you could change one thing about how you look, what would it be?
The length of my hair.

21) Would you be my crime partner or my conscience?
Depends on the crime.

22) What color eyes do you have?

Human.

Just a quick thought on writing. Obviously, writing is different for everyone, but this is what it means to me.
