I really do want to update/write a post, but my head hurts like hell and my mocha freeze needs attention. Not to mention I have a ton of work to do. I am at work right now. In the meantime, let me bloghop some more to make my day.
Hope you all have a good work week. Can’t believe it’s the end of September already!!!!!
I have not yet seen a meme that I did not like. But I have just seen a meme that I truly loved. It’s about food. Yummy, isn’t it? What a way to start a new week and a new season. I swiped this from MamaBig Dog who found this from a British food blog.
Here is the concept of this meme: “Below is a list of 100 things that I think every good omnivore should have tried at least once in their life. The list includes fine food, strange food, every day food and even some pretty bad food- but a good omnivore should really try it all. ”
The ones I have eaten are in bold print, and I am not going to cross out things I will never try because I want to try ’em all.

My score is 59. Should have been 60 had it not for #72, where it asked for caviar and blini. I have had caviar but not blini, so I am not counting that score. But 59 is not bad, I thought. Anyone wants to try out this meme, it’s fun.
I was feeling lousy @ bedtime last night. Sore muscles and achy joints and coughing could only mean one thing. I was getting sick. Hubby who happens to be my personal private practitioner prescribed two aspirins and some sleep.
I woke up sore, but unwilling to call sick. So I got ready and left for work. Everyday I leave the house before hubby gets up. He called me from work to check up on moi. I sounded more worse than I actually felt, which also garnered stay-away-from-me looks from co-workers. After hearing my froggy voice, hubby advised me to take cough and flu medication from our pharmacy [I work in a hospital] or go home and lie in bed. I was already here at work so I said I’ll go to the pharmacy.
I left my office to get my cure-all remedy. I went to the cafeteria and go me some sugar free brownies.
I feel so much better now!
Actually, my attitude is so much better, but the voice still croaks, and the muscles still sore, and the joints are all achy still. Oh well. Any reason to get a dosage of brownies I will gladly do.
The second part of this rambling thoughts for the 100th post has been delayed, partly due to lack of time and lack of inspiration. But let me tackle this tast right now so I can finally get this post behind me and move on to more exciting topics, hopefully.
Since this happens to be my 100th post, something that I had never imagined when I started this blog, I thought I’d do some bullet points again. Just random thoughts about anything under the sun.
With the arrival of autumn just around the bend, the summer holidays have seen their end. Most people take their holidays during the long summer break in order to spend time with their school kids. I have not particularly liked going out in the summertime. One reason, the weather. Heat bothers me a lot. It irritates me. Not fun for me at all. Another reason is that most spots from national parks to theme parks, from beaches to local fishing holes are jampacked. And I hate crowded places that’s why I seldom go to the malls.
When the crowds had thinned out and the days had gone cooler, I go. My favorite time to go away is just after the New Year. Most places offer discounted rates for off season travels. Cruises have good deals at this time. But since there is nothing in the near horizon for me to look forward to and I sit here working my butt off (how could that be if I’m blogging), I’d give in to the call of daydreaming. And because I have not done a six pack post in a long while, I would like to list my desired destinations. Here they are in no particular order:
3. Galapagos Island
4. Arches National Park
6. Yellowstone National Park
What about you? Do you have a dream destination? I love the outdoors, nature, and photography. I think all these destinations suit me just fine.
