Dumpling Sister's Thoughts
1.17.2007 House (Chinese Version)
It was still the winter storm where the roads were still icy and covered in snow and sleets out there. This was the 3rd day into the winter storm. I was still inside. I got my news from the internet and found out where my possible next meal could be from MSN messenger. Yesterday I was invited to the Winter melon mom’s place for a hotpot. Today they were eating fried shrimps; they didn’t have fried tofu so I could only decline. I saw the lower corner of MSN has news on Huge Laurie and the Golden Globe. I have forgotten to watch it on Monday. All I remembered was to watch “24”. I guessed I can watch the re-run on MSN video to see what was going on.
acceptance speech Laurie was saying how he didn’t prepare a
speech and that there ought to be a free acceptance speech
in the gift bag that they get. What impressed me was his
comment on how people would say they have the best crew or
best team to work with; however, logically speaking that
can’t all be true, logically.
To me this is
like the speech given at the weddings or funerals. People
always say so and so was the nicest person they know, an
that they have the biggest heart for something. It just
sounds a bit pretentious to me.
this was a honest comment, so I go online to goggle him to
see what else he said. I was indeed gossipy. I knew his
father was a doctor who has won an Olympics medal in rowing.
After browsing a few sites I realize I was still up to date
with my information. I clicked one site that has his name in
it. I like watching “House” but I am not devoted enough to
actually go create a web site for it. So my contribution to
the follow fans can only be clicking on the site to help
create the page hits.
accidental that I checked out an interview he had on his
parents. It turned out that his father has never told him
that he had won the gold medal. The son found out about it
from digging through a box in the attic and found a piece of
item inside a sock. Naturally out of curiosity he looked and
that was how he found out. Laurie said that he did plan to
study medicine like his father had wished him to; however,
it just wasn’t for him and that acting was more appealing.
He got into rowing like his father but gave up when his team
lost in the early competition.
that both of his parents had high expectations for him which
he is unable to meet. On one hand he idolized his father but
on the other he was not able to meet his wish. His mother on
the other hand just stated the fact that she disliked him
which might last up to few months. The actor slipped into
depression three years ago and was miserable to himself and
to the people around him. He said the breaking point came
when he was at a charity event and there were stockcars
flipping on the sides of the road. At the time he realized
how fragile yet how simple things should be. It was life or
death. It was either you like it or dislike it. He realized
he was just “too bored”.
stated his choice on that, but it was also clear which
choice he made.
This was a
very struggling life experience where it was deep and
difficult. I think if he didn’t have this set back, he would
have advance as much as he did now, both his life and his
This originated as a simple gossip but more got pulled out as it got dug deeper. This was good at a time where the year has just begun. The hope is that time is not lost because of some unwise reason, both you and I.
You can spend all your life being bitter and complaining what life has given you, at a corner of a room, doesn’t mater if anyone hears you, and if you have been left out.
Or you can also think, was I too “bored”?
