Architects 'Are Sexiest'
Sunday, January 22 at 8:20 PM
When I was in second year, I took an introductory philosophy class with a fellow who was in engineering. One day, while we were talking before class began, I mentioned to him that I was planning to do an M.Arch. Upon hearing that, he commented on how he had read that in a recent survey, architects were rated as most desirable by women. I replied that I found that notion quite amusing and pretty much forgot about it until recently.

"Until recently" because all of a sudden architects seem to be appearing all over the place in the media. The ones that come immediately to mind being the male leads in the recently released "Just Like Heaven" and "How I Met Your Mother".

Anyway, one of the architecture blogs I regularly peruse also commented on this fact and - lo and behold - linked to an image of an article referencing the survey I was told of. Unfortunately, the source is not provided, so I can't verify it. But at least now I know that it may not be an urban legend.

But is it true? I have no idea. I guess you'd have to ask the ladies.

Been listening to this album a lot recently. It's that good.

You're Beautiful
James Blunt
From the album, Back to Bedlam

My life is brilliant.
My love is pure.
I saw an angel.
Of that I'm sure.
She smiled at me on the subway.
She was with another man.
But I won't lose no sleep on that,
'Cause I've got a plan.

You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
I saw you face in a crowded place,
And I don't know what to do,
'Cause I'll never be with you.

Yeah, she caught my eye,
As we walked on by.
She could see from my face that I was,
Fucking high,
And I don't think that I'll see her again,
But we shared a moment that will last till the end.

You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
I saw you face in a crowded place,
And I don't know what to do,
'Cause I'll never be with you.
You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
There must be an angel with a smile on her face,
When she thought up that I should be with you.
But it's time to face the truth,
I will never be with you.

As you might have noticed by now, not much has been said here lately. I've been far busier than I would like, and when that happens, this space usually suffers.

I shall try harder.

Hope everyone has a good week.
