Dear Long John

Dear Long John *

Actually even for me, I still don't have a mental picture of what you are really like now.  Either time or HK* has tamed you.
And frankly speaking, I enjoy what you were at that time.  Ha :-)

Yup, i was like a wild child. My motto was "do one thing daily that scares me".
I am still pretty much the same, less reckless but gutsy when least expected (and when expected of cos). But I have mellowed over the years and 4 years at K* has transformed me a great deal too, especially on dealing with seniority, superiors and the eccentrics (they are not mutually exclusive).
Someone * once said to me "To manage, first you must learn to be managed" - that advice  was a retort when he saw the slogan on my tee shirt "I am unmanageable". Next advice, from same person "Respond, not react".  The inalienable truth is, I am still pretty much unchanged "Carpe Diem" - except that my pleasures are less dangerous over the years.  
And I'll still do the funky chicken when I am 85 - hopefully not in funny farm.
Yours as always, Dancer On Your Grave

You mentioned in one of your recent post ("I love Deng Xiaoping" that you found my latest blog (Raw Notes) a "great way to keep a 'I read therefore I am' log".

If we are defined by what we read, then I'm curious as to what you read. Perhaps you friend John would have a better mental picture of the current you :)
