Hello! I am so with you on Minidiscs. I knew they wouldn't last, lol

Your list wasn't boring at all! It was interesting finding out a little more about the mysterious Devil Mood :)

enleaver said...

yup you are mysterious alright, girl! well, i am your age, born in the year of 1983!

well your list didn't reveal too much of your background, but i guess it does reveal what you think and feel. i hope you are somewhat comforted thatn i feel the same way too. i don't think i will be able to love anyone else even though they might be interested. and i have always liked guys with broad shoulders like his. brown eyes.

i wonder if you read any of pablo neruda's work. chilean poet, and really quite good and emotional as well. will try reading Florbela Espanca :)

i so get you when you say that love is stronger than pride, cos it definitely is. haha, and i got this advice somewhere on the net. we all must vibrate at a higher frequency to attract the people we want to be with!

so let's just focus on that, girl! :)

oh and before i forget, gosh, your dog is really, really old!!!

Devil Mood said...

Thanks guys :)

Valerene: I know Pablo Neruda but I haven't read anything from him yet. I'll keep that in mind.
So how do we vibrate on a higher frequency? It must have something to do with chakras..That's hard work :)

enleaver said...

lol!!! my indian friends tell me that chakras means wheel, and you can be very much assured that you don't have to be a chakra to vibrate at a higher frequency!

it's about being happy, opinionated and surer of oneself. having people to want to become you.

chakras! haha you almost got me falling off my chair!

Devil Mood said...

I meant chakras as those energy points we have in our bodies. So vibrating has to do with focusing on giving them positive energy, through meditation, I think.
