[Tennis] King Federer

Need More Tennis

Dear Gods,

I love tennis.

It is the sport that can send me over the moon with joy one minute, and completely break my heart in the next. I just- just love it with the passion of a thousand burning suns.

So far, this year's Australian Open has been an event filled with Drama, Tragedy and enough Happy making to last me till Wimbledon. I just LOVE this sport so much.

Note to self: Goal for 2011 - Take holiday and go to the Australian Open in 2011.

XKCD is awesome - children's fantasy

This picture/diagram is the visual representation of my heart in regards to children's fantasy. Like, whose idea was it to push the idea that people who have gone through trauma, deaths and adventures can be put back into their ‘normal’ lives without any problems. Oh, wait, Narnia and Alice in Wonderland, of course.

The picture is awesome, and is one of the reasons why as a child I HATED Narnia and any other forms of fiction that insisted on putting children back into their own world, expecting them to be happy, to be appreciative after an adventure of life and death. Yeah, did not sit well with me as a 9-yr-old, and definitely did not sit well with me as an adult. As far as I’m concerned it is one of the cruelest children’s’ fantasy tropes, ever.

Want to watch Percy Jackson, please let it not be condescending.

Federer vs. Tsonga.

I think Federer is going to win this one. We are in the third set, and Federer have already won the first 2 sets. I do believe Federer is playing amazing tennis.

Federer def. Tsonga in less than 90 mins. That was some smooth and beautiful tennis from Federer. So damn precise. But OMFG! He is SUCH a dork! ON THE COUCH, TAKING CARE OF THE KIDS on his off season, AHAHAHAHAHA!

Also, IT HAS BEEN ABOUT 150,000 YEARS SINCE THE BRITISH WON ONE!!! AHAHAHAHAHA! (OK, I admit it, Federer isn't my favourite, that privilege belongs to Nadal, whom have my heart. Gods, bb, PLEASE BE OK, and KICK SOME ASS!). But the guy have his moments.
