My Brain! My Brain!

Learned today that even if you're in your 20's and 30's your brains are already degenerating. So what to do? The thing that is thought to be causing this, and to all human organs, is ... (drumroll) oxygen! The term they use is 'oxidative damage' but really it's like a metal rusting from oxygen - slowly but surely. To prevent this, there's nothing we can do. But to slow the process ... (drumroll) take anti-oxidants! Which is an ingredient already famous among age-preventers, people who want to stop from getting old and wrinkly. Let's see, there are supplements with anti-oxidants but I guess the best thing is to go natural; strawberries, blueberries, all the berries, prunes.

It's Singles Week?

Certainly didn't know there was a thing called singles week. It's called the National Unmarried And Single Americans Week. Apparently it started in 1984 by the Buckeye Singles Council in Ohio. The holiday (?) is held on the third week in September. Too bad it's only in America, I'd have liked to join in. Well, if you're single, everyday is sort of like a holiday.

Sometimes I wonder why people get married. It's like a recurring problem that never gets solved and people fall for it every time :D. The stories I hear about married life.... You just have to take a look at the wife to get a whiff into it. Especially if they have kids ... and many of them. And especially if they are not well-to-do. Sure, husbands say they help out with houseworks but usually from what I see, the whole load is still on the wife. They 'help' out when they feel like it and they choose what they want to do. When the house is a mess, who will people point their fingers to? And don't let me get started with having kids.

But of course, there are lonely moments and sometimes you just need someone by your side. Some men out there are known to do houseworks, sometimes doing even more than their wives. Or maybe we should make a point to marry only those who have a butler or who can afford maid service. But, what about infidelity or just recently I saw a man trying to put a hit on his own wife?

Decisions, decisions.

Fatal Online Dating Errors - Mistakes that Men Make

Saw this on Yahoo! about top 10 mistakes that men make when responding to online personals or trying to contact women online.

One of them definitely happened to me:
"Don't ask her if she wants to have sex with you on the second email exchange, and don't send her dirty pictures of you. Women are all about connecting with their minds. Just because you're looking for a quick fling, that doesn't mean she's going to respond."

For some reason, (some) guys thought that women would be more interested in them if they sent them pictures of themselves below the waist. What's the logic behind that?

Beauty Is - According to Sophia Loren

A couple of quotes from Sophia Loren:

"Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is beautiful."

"Sex appeal is 50% what you've got and 50% what people think you've got."

She's not what I would consider beautiful but she's not ugly either. But I do know men find her very sexy. It just shows how beauty is very much inside your head.

Cute Kittens!

Enough about tennis for a while. I have to calm myself down. These pictures are for Marat Safin as well :D.

Guess Who Won US Open 2007?

Couldn't believe my eyes when I read about it. Didn't watch the match due to time difference. Guess what's the score? 7-6, 7-6, 6-4!!!!! History keeps repeating itself! Someone has to figure this guy out and soon because it's not healthy for the sports to have only one player winning 4 or 5 straight year titles in a row. Don't know why it doesn't happen in women's singles. Heard one of the commentators said that tennis is more of a mental game than physical. I've noticed that Federer is stronger when he's about to lose his service game. He's especially stronger during tiebreaks. How do you become that strong? I certainly would like to know. Is there a pill I can take? :D

US Open 2007 Into the Final

Missed quite a lot of matches but saw the Andy Roddick - Roger Federer match. It was almost like Wimbledon 2007 final. Andy must have been thinking 'What do I have to do to beat his guy?' as Rafael Nadal must have thought. That definitely was what I was thinking. Just when you think you can break this guy, he comes back with deadly shots. When normally, a tennis player breaks under pressure, Roger seems to excel under pressure. To top it off he does it at the last minute, just when his opponent thinks he can break his serve, he comes up with an ace. Just when his opponent thinks he can win a rally, he comes up with an unbelievable winner. Just look at the score, 7-6, 7-6, 6-2 (vs Andy Roddick), 7-5, 6-1, 7-5 (vs Nikolay Davydenko). And don't get me started with the last Wimbledon. Anyway, a huge applause for Andy Roddick for fighting to the end and with a lot of spirit too. If I was him, I would have turned into a Marat Safin and handed Federer with an easy win and a lot of broken racquets. Now, all hopes go to Novak Djokovic, another player on my radar who I think can beat Federer other than my favourite Rafa. Not that I hate Federer but he's sort of THE tennis player to beat right now. Go Novak!
