Another month of unupdated blog. I think the part time job is really eating up my time. And I really feel the pressure of unread books piling up in my possesion. I guess it's even harder when you can only read an average of 2 books per month but you buy 5 books per month (10 if there's a warehouse sale). I'm not a speed reader. It's one skill that I want to learn before I die but then I'm so busy trying to finish as many books as I can that I don't have the time to teach myself how to speed read. *sigh* thus my dilemma....

Are you like a crazy person?

Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is it vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished, as the once vital voice of the verisimilitude now venerates what they once vilified. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin van-guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose vis-à-vis an introduction, and so it is my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.

I think this is the best introduction to a character ever.
