  1. This is my reply to Initial A in my bilingual blog:

    Hi Initial A

    I just tried to comment on your blog, but I couldn’t. It said I was a spam. I don’t know why.

    I read about your imaginary film in your blog, and I like it very much. Though I don’t agree that you choose Ron Howard to direct the second film about your life, I laughed out loud when I read about the third film about your life—“My life ends up in an insane asylum. This part is directed by Wes Craven. Neve Campbell plays my role.” I really love this idea. I wish it could come true.
