Remembering things in a song is so much easier than just remembering things.
I still remember all the colours of Joseph's Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat.
I wasn't even one of the singers...

Everyone lies about being fine.

I sometimes lie about lieing about being fine...

I lie about being fine, of course, but I lie about being upset sometimes.

Not so weird, but I love the sound of running water. Showers, faucets, waterfalls...

Pretty weird, electric motors also are quite soothing to me, from a little distance or with a barrier between me and it to dampen the sound. For instance, I like the sound of the pump to my parents' pool while I'm swimming, but not while I'm standing next to it. I also love the sound of the air pump for the bubbles in my parents' hot tub while I'm in the thing or on the deck around the hot tub, but not while I'm standing right next to the pump with the cover off...

I also love winter, it's my favorite season by far. Walking around outside during a snowstorm in the city at night is almost magical. There's no one around since they're all inside, no cars driving since it's dangerous and dark, and there's no noise since it's snow and not rain (and snow dampens noise anyway), the untouched snow sitting on top of the sidewalks, the cars, the roads, the signs...
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.

Everything. Seriously. I am somewhat open with my family, but even there I don't share much, except with my sister. Hell, I suspect there are less than 5 people in the world that know when my birthday is.

I love silk boxer shorts. My younger sister went to an international cheerleading competition in China a couple years ago. I was able to join them and explore the city when they were in practice. When I was out what did I do, explore the historical sites, experience exciting foreign cuisine, mingle with the locals? well yeah eventually but first I got the translator to tell me where I could buy a suitcase full of black market silk boxers! There is no better feeling in the world than fresh clean imported silk undergarments at street vendor prices.
