We’re actually in the process of moving to a different office space right now, so I have no internet connection at work. (I didn’t go to work today, fyi.) Everything is still a mess and we have been fairly busy with trying to organize our stuff. Good news is I have a pretty new desk and it’s sitting right next to my sister’s. Bad news is there aren’t any restaurants around the area, unlike our old space where you can walk to several Japanese places, an Italian fast food place, Starbucks, Figaro, McDonalds, you get the idea.

Anyway, the third installment of Awesome Artists (as well as any other new posts) will have to be put on hold for now…at least until we’ve reached a semi-organized state in the office. No internet in the office = no blog posts from Sasha. However, half of the third installment has already been written, so it shouldn’t take that long.

Until then, I’ll be miserable in the office and pining for wifi.

PS: I got an iPod Touch, finally. So now I’m poorer than a mouse.


Lai loves me too much. Seriously. That, or she’s bored out of her wits because she’s home alone today. Either way…she awarded me with this:

The Best Speller Award

to sasha

Haha! Gotta’ love that girl!

This installment features Jaime (or Jaimen as I like to call him because I’m mean and gross).


Of course, it’s still by the one and only Lai.

JAM EW CoverThere is no question about it. They’ve shared their ups and downs, chased each other back and forth for 3 seasons, suffered awkward moments like no other couple on TV…but they finally landed on the same spot on the 4th season. FINALLY!

Watching Jim Halpert and Pam Beesley be lovey-dovey at the same time was such a welcome change that I found myself smiling stupidly every time I watched a new episode.

When I finished watching the latest season online (they haven’t started showing it here yet), I went on YouTube and searched for Jim/Pam videos…because I’m a dork. This interview (below) was so funny, I had to watch it over and over again. I know it’s an old one, but how can you not adore these two? And after watching them do interviews together, you really don’t need to wonder why their characters are so believable and adorable…they’re exactly the same way in real life! Or at least they are during interviews. I can spend a whole day just watching these two…but that would be creepy.

Having said that, I’ll just let you go ahead and watch the interview.

“Dunder Mifflin, this is Pam. *hangs up*” — Classic!

The 2nd installment of Awesome Artists features Gilad Benari. I confess, I don’t really know much about this photographer, except that he takes awesome photos.

When I first joined deviantArt, I didn’t know a lot of people besides my friends so I just started looking around. I saw Still Standing (pictured on the right) at the Prints section and put it on my wishlist. After a while, I chanced across Traveling on a Lonely Road (pictured below) and fave’d it. I started watching him after that.

Update after update, he never ceases to amaze me. I always refer to photography as capturing life’s beauty and he certainly does that with his photos. His works made me realize how beautiful Israel is.

Traveling on a Lonely Road

He also got me interested in IR photography, which I am yet to pick up. (*Note: Sasha needs moolah.)

His concepts are amazing and varied. I never get bored visiting this guy’s gallery. Aside from the amazing photographs, his descriptions are always well thought out. He writes a short poem that goes with the photo along with his camera settings, photoshop tweakings, etc.

His description for Traveling on a Lonely Road reads:

Never been so alone as I was on my way to you
Traveling on a lonely road and chasing a fading rainbow
The road seems longer with every step I take
A storm is about to silence my thoughts and so I break
A tear in my eye reflects us passing by
I’ll still be on my way even when I arrive
So allow me to look you in the eye, whisper my final goodbye

It would be a dream to be an apprentice for this guy, just to follow him around and watch him work. Aside from being a great photographer, I see that he has a lot of love for his country and that’s something to admire as well.

These videos crack me up so bad:

*sings: “Bella’s a WHOOOOORE!”

Note: I don’t really think Bella’s a whore, but that part has to be the funniest part.

The things I come up with when I have a headache while plurking:

sashasayssashay has a headache from all this plurking. That which we love most shall hurt us the most, said the ghost who was lost and must then learn the cost.


sashasayssashay shares The death of a beautiful woman, is unquestionably the most poetical topic in the world. — Edgar Allan Poe
sashasayssashay says so wait for my death, then you may discuss poetically.
lightinthesky says careful, or we might wish for your death
sashasayssashay says beauty inspires envy…envy spawns hate…hate leads to anger…anger follows d and spells DANGER!

Sometimes I crack myself up. BTW, lightinthesky is my sister.


Is in her mid-20s. Is a girl. Loves to write. Loves taking pictures. Vents a lot. Finds her days too boring. Finds herself too sheltered. Wants to meet a faerie, for real. Swears a lot. Knows that's bad. Just might have too dirty a mind.
