Sunshine Too Brief

I'm a self-absorbed Bengali-Torontonian;
Fish comes to me raw, wrappend in seaweed, not cooked in curry;
I love watching thunderstorms and rain;
Sad endings make more sense to me than happy ones;
I hate empty walls.

    Thanks but you don't seem to poses any sense yourself if you are telling me to look at a Prince on a flying horse! He wont get a first loook either, not unless I have the proper drugs on hand.

    Where do you live ? I live in Iowa but I was born in Dhaka, Bangladesh. I am interested all sorts of literature but South Asian in particular. Literature helps me connect to my bangla culture. I look forward to learning more about your experiences.

    Take care,

    I know I know....coherent sentences, no blatant grammar errors (except the lack of 'in' in the second sentence) and points for the 'interest in literature'.
    Really. You are probably a very nice person.
    Which is why I'll be nice back and ask you to go here .

    *Just kidding ;) I love you wonderful people at Global Voices!
