Happy Friday everybody!
Here’s a new documentary to warm the cockles of your heart as we celebrate the end of the work week:
It’s called Love, Etc. and it follows five couples in New York City for a whole year on their journey in finding and falling in love.
Here’s one of my favourite quotes from the trailer: “I’ve been married 48 years, but it feels like 48 minutes. 48 seconds.”
A true le sigh moment.
Great to wake up to. Thought I’d share this.
Phillip Wang is such a closet romantic. For those who don’t know Wongfu Productions, it’s time to get started. Have a great weekend everyone!

Elderly couples always make my heart melt.
Watch Jack and Betty, high school sweethearts way back in 1938 (before WWII even!!) reunite after being apart for 62 years:
Dating someone who is taller, smarter or richer usually spells big trouble. Okay, perhaps not collectively but there’s always that niggling point that seems to matter more than the rest. It might be other seemingly inane things too. Like how much they can relate to the humor in The Simpsons. Or knowing the difference between a Cylon and a toaster. Even their grasp of colour coordination in their wardrobe (I’ve had this laid on me before).
There is always that one thing we value in our relationship above all else. Knowing what it is is important to see us through during tough times. It’ll also make it easier to look for Neo aka The One. Jonathan Coulton*, o geek muse, wrote a song about exactly that.
*in case you’re not familiar, he distributes his music for free and his fans reciprocate by creating machinima music videos.
I’ve always thought geeks are hot. They’re smart, have a passion and can hold a conversation – what’s not to like?
Then I started telling people around me that I thought geeks are hot. And they all gave me strange looks (well, most of them did). Some asked, “With the specs and all?”, and then tell me I’m odd for liking geeks.
Most confuse geeks with nerds, who are a whole different breed, people! Don’t believe me? See this venn diagram – it perfectly explains in succinct terms what the difference is.
A geek may be obsessed about computers, books, music or even plants – but because of this he is intelligent (at least in a certain field) and since everyone knows the sexiest part of the body is the brain, this is of course, extremely attractive.
So I hereby stand vindicated, everyone!
My friends fortunately, agree with me; so this post is for the rest of you who give me strange looks!
