Be Smart But Never Show It

What is it?

A fortune from a fortune cookie that I got this week from D Wok in the city of LC when I ordered a King Do Chicken combo, and the fortune was:

Be smart, but never show it.

The Mouthfeel & Treasure Hunting

Canceling | ContraPoints

I did not get much sleep last night and I do not remember most of my dreams, the little sleep that I did get kept getting interrupted at the end when I got a bit too hot in bed which kept causing me to wake up and barely go back to sleep, but I do barely remember part of one or more dreams that I will type as one dream.

Part of this dream was inspired a YouTube video that I watched part of yesterday by the YouTube channel ContraPoints called Canceling | ContraPoints.

But Can You Beat Me In Fighting?

All that I can remember of this dream is that it involved either a female alien or a female humanoid entity or a strange woman.

At some point the female alien/entity or woman met a man who looked like or was a younger version (maybe him from the 1970s) of John Travolta, and at some point they were in maybe a 1950s style diner (with maybe some modern updates) talking.

The John Travolta-like man was the lady’s man type, and was flirting a bit maybe and/or was just pretty confident and cool.

I was in the dream at this point, and somehow she learned about (someone one told her about it) a quote/saying/motto/slogan/quip/phrase that maybe my former male classmate AJ (who died recently) used to say sometimes in response to people in certain situations which was:

But can you beat me in fighting?

He and/or another one of my former male classmates liked to use that phrase to win an argument if all else fails. 😀

The alien or woman and the John Travolta-like man were still talking as I listened and did whatever I was doing there, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

When I Dream I Want To Grow Up

A few moments ago while up early in the morning multitasking (listening to a YouTube video called Chrono Cross (クロノ・クロス) – OST, maybe blogging, et cetera) a random thought / phrase / quote / whatever crossed my mind randomly.

It was probably a mistake and a word mix up in my mind, but the words that came to my mind were:

When I Dream I Want To Grow Up.

Words Of My Father

Years ago my dad was lecturing my brothers and I maybe after some of my brothers and/or I had been arguing or fighting or something like that but I can not remember, and he made a statement that my brothers and I thought was funny and that did not make sense to us (unless you try to think deeply about it, and find or make some sense in/of it; which I can):

If you can’t get along with others, how are you going to get along with yourself?


Our dad often says things that do not make sense, accidentally says the wrong thing when he means to say something else, sometimes he uses words that do not exist, sometimes he pronounces words incorrectly and in strange ways, sometimes he uses words incorrectly, and so I might start blogging some of the memorable quotes/sayings/words/et cetera sometimes before I forget them.

The end,
