To: Yun-yu and your beloved
What beautiful wallpaper, pastel pink with sprinkling sweethearts! The warm sentiments you sent through this idea have certainly appealed to many people's hearts and I was well inspired to post some notes on this magnificent background.
Indeed, you two have proved that happily-ever-after isn't a fairy tale after all, and with my sincere heart, I wish both of you a Happy Chinese Valentine's Day!
To: ET Princess
Welcome home, your Highness. I learned that your mission has been a great success, and you have earned the trust of the people in Formosa. I believe the Mouse King was very impressed with your loyalty and dedication. Apart from your royal duties, I am sure you can't wait to put that California "cool" back on you. Enjoy being a Cali. girl again. :)
Okay...., let's have a little chitchat about your love affairs. I know you had a big crush on J mouse, our Mouse King, and because of your blue blood and noble temperament, you are undoubtedly best qualified to be his queen. On the other hand, you had better realize that even though you were meant to be his woman, he will never be your man. Hence, my dear, save yourself not for him any longer. In fact, you will enjoy him more from a distance. Yet annoying as it is, emotions rarely follow the rules. In that case, you may as well go catch the wind. [Singing "the Wind and the Sand", theme from the Pearl Princess II] Ha-ha.
May the Force be with you!
Points to ponder: How about trying to get back to Luke Skywalker? Or you may want to talk to Four Seasons and see if she is willing to give you her Obi-Wan Kenobi. Gee, she has kept him long enough, hasn't she? Oh, don't you like Obi-Wan's outlandish hairdo? Four Seasons is right that he is as cute as Luke Skywalker. Anyway, I hope you will soon find the boy your heart desires so you are not envious of Yun-yu and her beloved.
To: Four Seasons
Finally, I got the Pearl Princess II videotapes this week and I am having another attack of that Pearl Virus again. After all, I am not immune to it as I thought I was. [Sighs] In Part II, I was quite captivated by the desert scene, in which the song"the Wind and the Sand" and its exotic love story were very enchanting to me.
How about you? Have you seen the Part II yet? Let's share the views when we all finish watching the show. :) By the way, thank you for letting ET know her correct NPR dial. I thought we all had the same dial. Ha-ha. You are always wise and resourceful. You know what? If ET couln't get connected with us, she would be mad enough to squash me like a bug or torture me with Wrong Maw-Maw's needles. [Ouch!]
Hey, about "Car Talk"....., I have never listened to it before, but now that you mentioned it, I will pay attention to it. Indeed, it will help me become savvy about car. As for the Boston accent, why, I think it is pretty cute. I noticed it when I heard Ben Affleck's speech in the movies Good Will Hunting and Armageddon. How have you been? I miss you, and don't tell me you ate my tomatoes again! I learned that the weather is turning cooler in the New England areas. Soon schools will open and the fall leaves will swirl their waltz again. Enjoy the rest of the summer and I hope we will chat along from season to season.

I promised you I wouldn't drink too much coffee or tea, but I often like to take my doughnuts with some coffee. I love doughnut, and I am often reminded of Tina's novel poem. [Don't worry about my weight, I play tennis, remember?]
Once, I was talking to my friend about the theme song "Butterfly in the Rain" from the Pearl Princess I and I was trying to envision the scene of the lyrics. My friend grinned and said, "Silly, insects do not fly in the rain." Huh, some people are just not poetic or romantic enough to inspire our mood, are they? Ha-ha.
How is your leg? My heart and stomach were in knots when I learned that you were not completely healed from the last accident. I was even more upset when someone ruthlessly asked you to sit upright in that thinking-chair. Why, you are not a kid and you don't have to sit straight to think straight, right? Needless to say, even if you did slip off that chair, you could still meditate on the floor. Ha-ha. Okay, next time if you make a faux pas and need to be placed on a time-out again, I will get you a big rocking chair so that you can rest your feet, stretch your body, and rock your thoughts. You know what? I actually like the pose of the famous statue, The Thinker, sculpted by Auguste Rodin: A man sits on a rock, his feet drawn under him, one hand on his knee, and the other hand against his chin. He looks like he is deep in thought and no one will ever guess what he is thinking about!
I remember one time you went into the chat room and you were pretty upset about being graded as a "20% beauty". Well, it was a communication glitch and let me interpret that computer language for you: "On a percentage scale, you weigh 20 on the appearance and 80 on the substance, or vice versa. In sum, you are still a 100% beauty."
In literary term, Tina, you are as sweet as doughnuts, and as beautiful as Yellow Roses of Texas. You dance like a butterfly when you are merry and sting like a bee when you are in a fury. You are as mysterious as those faraway stars, and yes, stars do shine brighter in the Lone Star State.
I hope you will like my interpretation. I have enjoyed talking to you on line, and I happen to like things just the way they are. I suppose that will disappoint our matchmaker Gillian, huh? Yet it is a small world, and I believe soon or later we will meet, either at the NASA Space Center or at the top of the Empire State Building. Ha-ha.
