All In A Week’s Time

Forget the promise to self to find time to update this blog regularly.  I can’t seem to find the time, or the inspiration, or both.  Anyway, let me recap what has happened in between posts.

  • Well, it was Rox-(bo)Sox in the finals despite my wish to see an Indians-Rox match-up, and in the end the experience and talent of the Sox were much too much for the eager rookies (in terms of World Series) to overcome.  I suppose it was time they win more than one; heck, they had a very long long wait for the first one, right.
  • Why am I not very upset that it was really Sara Tancredi’s head on the box and that yes, because of some stupid contract/money matters, she’s out of Michael’s life?  Okay, I join the many others out there who think this is the biggest boo-boo and want to stop the writers in giving Michael a new love interest.  Come on, I invested two years of my time on the Mi-Sa angle.  OMG, my husband will think I finally lost my mind when he reads this post.
  • Netflix delivered AEON FLUX and surprisingly I quite enjoyed it.  It had gotten a lot of bad reviews that I didn’t add it to our Netflix queue, but hubby did, and I am glad he did.
  • I got an email from an old colleague who has been battling breast cancer for quite some time.  I was very happy to hear from her. 
  • I moved to a bigger office with windows. 
  • I went on a leaf-peeping drive, watched the colorful leaves with tongue hanging out, breathed in the crisp mountain air, enjoyed the local color, and tasted wonderfully home made chocolate mousse cake from a small deli/candy store.
  • Visited an old friend in the hospital.  He was looking good, hope he remains in better health.

Life has been busy, really busy lately and this means less time to write.  Will try to do better next time.

(Just had an earthquake.  Local news came out with preliminary report saying it was a 5.6 magnitude.  Once the earth shakes, my nerves follow suit.  I had to stop blogging, step away from the computer and confirm if it was really an earthquake.  Hubby is downstairs in the dining room carving a pumpkin; he too felt it.  )

From the INBOX

My Thanks to my dear old colleague, Dithas, who just e-mailed me this I am about to share here.  Something to keep in mind.


============ ========= =====

1. Faith is the ability to not panic.

2. If you worry, you didn’t pray. If you prayed, don’t worry.

3. As a child of God, prayer is kinda like calling home every day.

4. Blessed are the flexible, for they shall not be bent out of shape.

5. When we get tangled up in our problems, be still. God wants us to be still so He can untangle the knot.

6. Do the math. Count your blessings.

7. God wants spiritual fruit, not religious nuts.

8. Dear God: I have a problem. It’s me.

9. Silence is often misinterpreted, but never misquoted.

10. Laugh every day – it’s like inner jogging.

11. The most important things in your home are the people.

12. Growing old is inevitable, growing up is optional. (Preach it!)

13. There is no key to happiness. The door is always open. Come on in.

14. A grudge is a heavy thing to carry.

15. He who dies with the most toys is still dead.

16. We do not remember days but moments. Life moves too fast so enjoy your precious moments.

17. Nothing is real to you until you experience it; otherwise it’s just hearsay.

18. It’s all right to sit on your pity pot every now and again. Just be sure to flush when you are done.

19. Surviving and living your life successfully requires courage. The goals and dreams you’re seeking require courage and risk-taking. Learn from the turtle, it only makes progress when it sticks out its neck.

20. Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are. No matter the storm, when you are with God, there’s always a rainbow waiting. Leave gentle fingerprints on the soul of another for the angels to read. I don’t want to get to the end of my life and find that I lived just the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well.

Lost on Wednesday

I seem lost without LOST on Wednesday.  Who’s idea was this?  Again, why return in winter.  I need it now.

October Rolls On

Kids Week on Jeopardy.  Very very entertaining.  A Fil gal won on Tuesday I think.  So cool.

Finally, tonite is the night that I get to be transported to the fictional Elmo, Alaka.

Rain today resulting in traffic.  Heck, we have traffic here with or without rain.  I’d rather have it with rain.  Too bad I had to work today, I would have loved to play hooky in the rain. 

I hope I could take pictures this weekend.  How could a weekend just zips by, but the work week always stretches out longer than it normally is?

Am blogging again.

I had a whole page and half of posting and somehow I lost it.  Pity.  I should learn how to save after every paragraph.   Anyway, let me try to replicate what I wrote and lost.


The Korean drama that I spoke about in the previous post is no longer running. It ended not long after I posted about it.  I also learned that the name of that show was OVER THE RAINBOW.  Checked online for dvd set (everything is on dvd set nowadays) but it costs around 70 big ones, money I am not willing to cough up any time soon.


The stage is set for NLCS and ALCS with an all-western division cast for the former and the Indians vs the Red Sox in the latter.  TV ratings and revenues aside, I am wishing for a Rockies-Indians finale.  The underdog series.


Was that really Sara Tancredi’s head on the box?  Did they kill her off?  Say it isn’t so, please.


A tv addict, I am; a reality show fan, I am not.  Outside of American Idol (which I dont consider reality show, but a talent/game show), I shy as far away as possible from any reality show.  But the debut of SEARCH FOR A NEW IRON CHEF is so riveting and so different and interesting that I may rethink about my aversion to reality shows.  The reason why we tuned in to this show was Traci de Jardins (one of SF’s greats), but in the end she was the first to go.  The show was very intense and entertaining. 


In a few days, the wacky, quirky residents of Elmo, Alaska will be back on the tube.  Finally, the very long wait is over.   I just found out that they film  in Squamish, BC.  We went on a road trip to Whistler and passed by Squamish.  I would have stopped by, had I known a few months ago.
