WhatsApp Co-Founders Jan Koum and Brian Acton
Earlier today, Facebook announced its acquisition of WhatsApp for $16 billion. It’s a spectacular milestone for the company’s co-founders Jan Koum and Brian Acton, and their remarkable team.
From the moment they opened the doors of WhatsApp,…
Rule one: Always post the rules
Rule two: Answer the 11 questions the person tagged you asked
then ask 11 new ones.
Rule three: Tag 11 new people to this post and link them
Rule four: Actually tell them that you tagged them
Because thisloveisforreal had nothing to do and imposed this on me. Not gonna do rule three and rule four… rule breaker!
- What was your nickname as a kid?
Had plenty. One was Abo, short for a WoW character.
- When was the last time you felt pure, unbridled joy?
When my mom came over to see me in the UK
- If you could learn a new skill, what would it be?
Does telekinesis count?
- Do you like wearing makeup?
It’s my second skin
- What’s your favourite feature?
A physical feature? My face! Gotta love my face.
- Best compliment you’ve ever received?
You are a wonderful human being (Compliments from myself count right…)
- Tea or coffee?
Tea. No question.
- What was the last book you enjoyed?
- Best advice you’ve ever received?
There isn’t really a single best one… but what’s relevant now is “Take life in one step at a time, and be at ease with yourself”
- What’s the “weirdest” food you like eating?
Octopus! The tiny baby ones served in Japanese restaurants. Or tamarinds. I think tamarinds look weird, but they’re so good.
- Are you going to regret eating that bag of chips?
Nope. Life’s too short to not indulge in simple pleasures.
So I bought this book because it actually produces some really great prompts. If you ever need any ideas for an au or something original holler at me I’ll dial you up one of these.
I want this.
Looks like some real spontaneous fun
One of the best things to do in Oslo was definitely the visit to the Oslo Opera House. There is a tour of the house (back-stage stuff!) which is inexpensive to do, or you can just bask in the beauty of the building and its surroundings.
Look at how the golden sunset rays are reflected on the surfaces!
Architecture students take note.
Yellow, blue and laundry. That’s how the buildings along the river at Porto do.
I like how hanging laundry is a sign of occupancy, especially outside old buildings. They’re like flags of “I live here”.
One time I went shopping for shirts and suits, but then I found the most beautiful pair of socks and I thought, “I just have to buy this”. So when I did, and I was at the counter, the cashier told me, “You can get another pair of socks for a half off since we’re having a special sale.” So I did, I went and got another pair of socks and then they told me, this time, that if I buy another pair of socks, I’ll get another pair of socks for free…And so I bought another socks to get another pair of socks for free and they told me again that if I buy another pair of socks, this time, they’ll let me have two pairs of socks for free. And I did. So by the end of the day, I had bought about 7 pairs of socks and no new suits or shirts. And I thought to myself, “This is my life now. Spending money on socks.”

This is why he’s not allowed to go shopping without Martin Freeman. He does this
Lol oh my god dying from the cute
That’s a sassy sock-shopping sweetie right there
Q:You there… Freeze! You’re under arrest for being so nice and cute. Copy this message to 10 other blogs that you think are beautiful and deserve it. Keep the game going and make others feel beautiful ~
You think I’m nice and
cute? Aww thanks.
Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer had a very shiny nose.
And if you ever saw him, you would even say it glows.
All of the other reindeer used to laugh and call him names. They never let poor Rudolph join in any reindeer games.
Then one foggy Christmas Eve Santa came to say:
"Rudolph with your nose so bright, won’t you guide my sleigh tonight?"
And all the other reindeers were so jealous they convinced Santa that Rudolf made a better burger.
I’m so sorry for ruining the song, but the burger was still very delicious!

I find beauty in the fact that I can’t grasp everything that God does.
