“About week enders, I’ll give you snippets of the highs and lows of my week.”
– Rainy Days and Mondays always get me down…Another manic one as well, but wait, there’s this Hugh Jackman look-alike sitting right in front of me at the train while we’re heading to Geneva. It’s a good morning view, how pleasing for my eyes.
– I’m not going to eat kafta anymore. I’m not going to eat kafta anymore. Not anymore, not anymore. (Repeat)
– The geeks from the heavens above heard my plea. At last, we found the culprit! It’s up and running now. *woot*
– Summer must have been over. It should’ve been autumn first, but the weather’s like winter. Ayayay. I guess I should start reshuffling my clothes in my cabinet. Out with the summer, in with the autumn/winter clothes. I’ll enjoy wearing scarves and boots once more.
– That’s bizarre. I’m not that interested anymore. I don’t care, care bear! Hehe.
– I’m wondering if I have a chance to get a post-graduate or MBA scholarship. Hmm, why not? How to start? Where to go?
– @perkyperps: “I’m a little nutty. Chicken satay and kare-kare for lunch.
#lunchtime“. And when my period is over, I crave for sweets. Mövenpick’s Gruyère double cream cheese and meringues is my current favorite.
– That was quick to finish, A Glimpse of Annecy.
– It’s amusing to see how people react to change. I’d silently snicker again once we do another big change and it’s my job to appease most of them, if not all. The best statement I would ever say: Blame Bill.
– So many things to do over the weekend, big changes in my blog will happen anytime soon. And I’m almost about to complete the freelance project I’m working on. I’ve gotta get that extra dough.
– I had Cheese Appreciation 101 over dinner. Lesson number 1, serve cheeses with grapes and/or wine (walnuts are good, too). Number 2, the most traditional way of enjoying cheese is from a platter that contains different kinds of cheese (combinations of hard, soft, strong, or mild cheeses). Number 3, if there are leftovers, store them separately; don’t combine them together in a single container.
– At last, Google+ has opened its doors (and Windows).
– How gullible are you? I got 80. I’m a free thinker.
Welcome to the top 5%. You’re a true free thinker and a person who is well informed about the reality in which you live. Although you may have been easily manipulated earlier in life, you eventually gained lucidity and developed a healthy sense of skepticism that you now automatically apply to your observations and experiences. You are endlessly curious about human behavior and the nature of the universe, and you have one or more lifestyle habits that most people would consider odd or unusual. You are not only of very high intelligence, you are also extremely creative in one or more areas (music, art, software development, inventing, etc.)
If you were in The Matrix, you would have taken the red pill, completed the combat training, and started fighting (and beating) agents from day one.
Your architects: You have cast off reality distortions taught to you by your parents, schooling, corporate advertising and government propaganda. You create your own beliefs based on what serves you best, without much regard for what the rest of the crowd is doing. You are guided by your own internal code of ethics (which may or may not agree with politically-correct ethical codes) rather than any pre-set system of ethics (such as from any one religion).
I’m being duped by this gullible factor test. Well, nice marketing it is. If you want to try, go here.
– There’s a second wave. The first change was just a teaser. Prepare ourselves, Facebook to be profoundly changed.
– I really don’t understand why most people don’t like the changes made in Facebook. So far for me, it’s all good! Maybe it depends on how you use Facebook or I’m just a quick learner that I adapted well with the change and appreciated it.
When you’re single, people ask about boyfriend. When you have a fiance, they ask about wedding? When you get married, they ask when will you have baby? When you already have one, they ask when is little brother or sister coming? When you get divorced, they ask why? If you move on, they ask why so quickly? People will never stop asking. Well it is your life and you should decide how to LIVE YOUR LIFE.. ♥
– Again, Friday’s been busy. Good thing, JR came to the rescue. JP’s down, over. I repeat, JP’s down! Copy that.
BEST DIVORCE LETTER EVER!
I’m writing you this letter to tell you that I’m leaving you forever. I’ve been a good man to you for 7 years & I have nothing to show for it.
These last 2 weeks have been hell.
Your boss called to tell me that you quit your job today & that was the last straw. Last week, you came home & didn’t even notice I had a new haircut, had cooked your favorite meal & even wore a brand new pair of silk boxers. You ate in 2 minutes, & went straight to sleep after watching all of your soaps. You don’t tell me you love me anymore; you don’t want sex or anything that connects us as wife. Either you’re cheating on me or you don’t love me anymore; whatever the case, I’m gone.
… … … Your EX-Husband
P.S. don’t try to find me. Your SISTER & I are moving away to West Virginia together! Have a great life!
Nothing has made my day more than receiving your letter.
It’s true you & I have been married for 7 years, although a good man is a far cry from what you’ve been. I watch my soaps so much because they drown out your constant whining & griping Too bad that doesn’t work. I DID notice when you got a hair cut last week, but the 1st thing that came to mind was ‘You look just like a girl!’ Since my mother raised me not to say anything if you can’t say something nice, I didn’t comment. And when you cooked my favorite meal, you must have gotten me confused with MY SISTER, because I stopped eating pork 7 years ago. About those new silk boxers: I turned away from you because the $49.99 price tag was still on them, & I prayed it was a coincidence that my sister had just borrowed $50 from me that morning.
After all of this, I still loved you & felt we could work it out. So when I hit the lotto for 10 million dollars, I quit my job & bought us 2 tickets to Jamaica But when I got home you were gone.. Everything happens for a reason, I guess.
I hope you have the fulfilling life you always wanted. My lawyer said that the letter you wrote ensures you won’t get a dime from me.
So take care.
Your Ex-Wife, Rich As Hell & Free!
P.S. I don’t know if I ever told you this, but my sister Carla was born Carlos. I hope that’s not a problem.
– I’m recently getting hooked on Koh-Lanta, a Survivor-like reality TV series produced by TF1 in France. Since I understand a little bit of their French, I’d just stay around only to watch the challenges and leave after the immunity game. Whatever their issues to each other are, it’s a good thing that I don’t know!
Reality competitions or reality game shows, as they term it, have always been my favorite. I’ve always enjoyed Survivor, Amazing Race, Fear Factor, The Biggest Loser; and talent-based shows like The Apprentice, Iron Chef, Rockstar: Inxs, American Idol. Channeling my Martha Stewart side, I also like reality shows for home makeovers.
– I was able to sleep longer than usual so I had a nice morning jog, bringing a pocket-full of walnuts on my way home.
– L is totally gifted when it comes to cooking, I swear. Waging-wagi ang kanyang pancit (Her pancit is a big hit). It has rice noodles typically used for palabok, ginger and saffron. Ibang-iba! (Totally different!) For dessert, I had coupe Denmark. I found out something new, and again, I can’t say no to great-tasting food.
– I like my ME time today. It’s just me, my laptop and cups of coffee and tea.
– The old folks can say whatever they can say. What is it for me to comment back? It’d just fall on their deaf ears because they’ve been there and that and the smell of teen spirit is gone. So there’s no point to explain myself. Because, on this day, God wants me to know…
… that you are commanded to love everyone, not condemn those who don’t agree with you. Your opinions are just that, – opinions, regardless of where you got them from. They are tiny, a speck compared to the immensity of God. You cannot possibly have even the faintest idea of what God commands to other people, to other lifeforms. Your only possible intelligent choice is to continuously open in love and acceptance. Today more than yesterday.
– After jejemon, what’s new? It’s the super dooper long hashtag conversations!
The world is changing, my dearest, and apparently, technology is taking a huge part of it.
– I, L and her sister-in-law went to Divonne to buy some nice food stuff and goodies. I always enjoy shopping at the Sunday market in Divonne, cozy and easy. I bought a bottle of bee pollen (8.30 euros), a quilt-designed duvet for a double-sized bed with 2 pieces of pillow covers (50 euros), spicy green olives (5 euros), and a shabby chic tin decor (8 euros). It’s a shopping Sunday indeed.
– There’s this gelato store that’s pretty popular for visitors in Nyon. The place is jam-packed as we went inside to have our share. It’s my first try and I ordered chocolat noir sans sucre. I’m not impressed. The Belgian cone wasn’t even yummy. Sorry.
– We passed by an old kiddie horse ride machine and I remember when I was young, I wanted to bring this home. So was the Barbie doll house, I recall I cried over it. Now I remember why I’m not buying them yet. I’m waiting for the right time. It’s gonna be for my kiddo.
– On the side, I found series of She-ra and of The Adventures of Tintin. Uhm, they’re just in French. So the question here is, to buy or not to buy?
– @perkyperps: “I’ve got the best buys at the grand market in Nyon on a sunny Sunday. An old Swiss cow bell pegged at 80chf, but haggled at 70chf. A new one can cost you hundreds. And, an Italian-made leather bag for only freaking 10chf! Such a happy shopper I was.”
