Life is like a game of baseball.

Saturday, July 31, 2010



Life is like a game of baseball. You are the ball, while the batter is the obstacles and challenges in life. You'll probably be able to guess who the owner is.

The game has just started. You think you're invincible, the players are probably just a bunch of amateur baseball players. They won't be able to hit you.
The pitcher throws a fastball and the batter swung too late. "STRIKE 1!"
The batter swung his bat too early this time. "STRIKE 2!"
This time, the batter squares his shoulders before his stands in position. The pitcher throws you with all his might. Unexpectedly, the batter hits you, the swing sends you across, and then out of the field. It's a home run. The spectators cheer at the successful hit.

You on the other hand, land at a cold, dark, lonely alley. You're at the corner of the dumpster, feeling abandoned, wondering how the heck the batter could have hit you, you were totally caught off guard. "I'm never gonna get back in the game", you think. You can't move, you can't roll or bounce your way back, you are immobile. You feel as if there is nothing you can do, you feel useless and hopeless.

However, not long after, someone walks into the alley. It's your owner! He rummages through the dumpster although it smells fetid and VERY unpleasant.

You feel a surge of joy and hope.

He stops rummaging and catches sight of you. "There you are!" He exclaims and then picks you up. He brushes off the dirt on you and smiles - He's glad that He has found you. You may be a bit filthy and wet from the puddle of water you just bounced in and the dirty path you travelled, but you are not severely damaged or broken to the point where you're unmendable. He holds you tight in His hand, never letting you go. You can sense the warmth in his clutch from the body heat emitted, you feel safe and comfortable.
As He walks back to the field, He tosses you in the air a bit but He catches you everytime. He does not toss you too high so that you don't bounce off into darkness and oblivion.

And before you know it, you're back in the game, ready for another swing of the bat. This time, you do not underestimate the batter. You may even feel a bit fearful and worried. "Will the batter hit me so hard, I may be lost forever?"
Then you remind yourself, that your owner will surely pick you up again... everytime you get hit out of the field until the long game finally ends... where you'll be kept in His home. No, not locked away in a drawer or hid under the bed where light can't reach you and you will be engulfed in darkness and probably forgotten. Far from that.

Instead, you will be seated on the top of the drawer where He can see you. You look around the place you are at. It's cozy and peaceful. You are far away from the reality of the game and there are no more cruel batters in sight. No more being hit, no more being dirty, no more spectators who cheer and clap because you were hit.
You are definitely in a better place. He's so proud of you, you're His prized possession.

Monday, July 12, 2010

Yes, I am a sucker for romantic, out of the ordinary (the positive definition) storylines XD

Owen: Nice work today.
Cristina: Nice work today? Seriously?
Owen: I'm sorry?
Cristina: "Run to my truck". You've got O'Malley clipping bleeders and you're telling me to run to your truck?
Owen: You know what my truck looks like and O'Malley doesn't. And that run you took, it saved the guy's life-
Cristina: All day. All day, you were teaching O'Malley and you ignored me.
Owen: O'Malley wants to be a trauma surgeon, you've already declared cardio. I didn't do anything wrong today, I treated you like I would to anyone else.
Cristina: I am not like anyone else. *shoves* "Take care now?" What is that? What are you, like you know, happy now? Wh-what are you? Just a choke 'em and forget 'em kinda guy?
*Owen hands Cristina a piece of paper*
Cristina: *Reads from paper* Hey there now, take care now, nice work Yang, what is this?
Owen: My shrink gave me these sentences. We came up with them together, they're all 3-word sentences so that I can have something to say to you instead of the 3 words that are... that are killing me. The three words that you know I feel but I can't say because it would be cruel to say that because I am no good for you. I don't want to torture you, I don't want to look at you longingly but I know I can't be with you. So yeah, I'm smiling and I'm saying, "Take care now"! I'm letting you off the hook. I'm trying, I'm trying so hard to let you off the hook. I'm trying to make it right, what I did to you. Can't you see that? I'm just trying to make it right.
Cristina: Take care now. *Gives back piece of paper and walks away*

Video clip on Youtube
Raj: Sheldon, I don't suppose there's any chance you could give me my kite back?
Sheldon: I'm sorry Raj, but the rules of aerial warfare dictates the fallen kite goes to the victor. And without rules, the competition has no meaning. And without meaning, the following would be an empty gesture. I have your kite, I have your kite!

The Big Bang Theory - "The More, the Merrier"

Wednesday, July 7, 2010

This is something new I'm gonna do. I'm going to screencap and quote a random (memorable, of course) scene from any random TV series!


*Click the picture to enlarge*
Howard: I hope it's alright, I told my girlfriend Burnadette that she'd be joining us for dinner.
Leonard: Sure, the more the merrier!
Sheldon: What? No, that's a false equivalency! More does not equal to merry. If there were two thousand people in this apartment right now, would we celebrating? No, we'd be suffocating.
Leonard: =.="
