Not Friday Five - No One Else

weather: cloudy
outside: 15°C
mood: amused
Name a CD you own that no one else on your friends list does:

Any of my Ben Heppner CDs. This, that (personalized and autographed) or the other.

Name a book you own that no one else on your friends list does:

The Discourses and Sayings of Confucius
Published by The Overseas Affairs Commission
No. 5, Hsu-Chow Road,
Taipei, Taiwan
Republic of China
ISBN: 801100074-8

It has both the original Chinese text printed in the traditional right-to-left format (with the ZhuYin ruby text) along with an interpretation text in Chinese and the English in left-to-right on the reverse. It's a dry read, but a very good translation according to my Dad. I use it as a reference.

Name a movie you own on DVD/VHS/whatever that no one else on your friends list has:

The Hello Kitty Diamond DVD Collection.

Name a place that you have visited that no one else on your friends list has:

I was about to say that I don't think I've been anywhere that no one else has been... none of you have EVER been to Las Vegas or San Francisco or Disney World in Orlando. Nah...

Has anyone been to Shun-De, China (near Guangzhou)? That's my hometown.

[Update — 1845h]

Okay, it's official then. There is nowhere on this planet that I have been that no one else hasn't been. =)

[Update — 2215h]

Gah, you PEOPLE. Okay, so sunnedaae has Ben Heppner CDs. Alright, alright. If any of you have Nancie Foreman's debut album, "Your Love Comes Naturally", I'm going to die. =D

Well, you're right, don't own the CD, DVD or book, though I've read another translation years ago.

I've never been to China, so that was a safe bet. Mind you, I've never been to the US, so Disney World would have worked for me as well. ^_^

I went to ShunDe doing research on fish farms back in 1998.

I do, incidentally, own a copy of the Analects of Confucious. But it is most certainly not the same published version as yours.

I signed out that book (or at least an edition of it) when I was in high school. definitely something to keep on the bookshelf! --Ray

Hehe =) Okay, so it technically belongs to the school library, who is arguably not my friend =D

But yeah, it's a good one to have.
