Don't Kiss Them Good-bye

One of my students lent me a copy of the Chinese edition of Don't Kiss Them Good-bye the other day. I was reading it and ordered a copy of its English edition online just now. I also found the author, Allison DuBois's website. I'll finish reading the Chinese edition in a day or two and look forward to receiving the English edition. Thank you, God (whatever people call you) for giving me this "God-given" gift: being bilingual. If I like a work very much and its original is written in English, I'll get a copy of its original eventually.

Allison DuBois, a medium who inspires the TV show "MEDIUM", reminds me of the two psychis I met last time I was in New York City. If I were there, I would pay them a visit. Currently My brother and his wife are honeymooning in the States. They are staying at my auntie's in Fort Lee, New Jersey. They don't understand English at all. I can't ask them to visit the psychis for me. That's too bad.

Anway, let me finish the Chinese edition first, and then the English original. Did I mention who lent me the book? Yes, one of my students, and she's a Buddhist nun.

From "Hitch"

"Never lie, steal, cheat, or drink.
But if you must lie, lie in the arms of the one you love.
If you must steal, steal away from bad company.
If you must cheat, cheat death.
And if you must drink, drink in the moments that take your breath away."


I do drink in the moments that take my breath away. As to the others, well, ... I don't know ...

還滿喜歡最近在法鼓山電子報裡頭讀到的一句話,最近我MSN Messengeruser name旁邊的暱稱就是這句:「孔雀雖有色嚴身,不如鴻燕能遠飛。」

Heard on a Friend's Answering Machine

"Heard on a friend's answering machine: 'Hi, I'm probably home. I'm just avoiding someone I don't like. Leave a message. If I don't call back, it's you. - S. Smith" (Life's Like That, p.142, Reader's Digest Asia, October 2006)
