A night of meltdown?

I just finished watching the US Open Womens Championship and congratulations to Kim! What a way to start a comeback.

Anyway, I can't believe what happened yesterday. I was not able to watch the semis since I really don't know that they were supposed to play. All the while, I thought it was gonna be today. Well, I was surprised what they keep on showing earlier...see this video if you haven't seen it yet...

I am not a professional athlete but I think I understand her. If you are that passionate about what you are doing but can't seem to pull it off when you needed it most, that must be so frustrating. I still hope she will come back winning a major soon.

And since they mentioned that she was not in the building but attending the 2009 mtv video music award, I'm watching the replay as of the moment. And again, I was surprise of this one! Did you play it? What's happening to these people??? First, Serena...then here's Kanye West. What a night of MELTDOWN!

I hope next week will be a better week for both of them. :-)

Online Shopping

Wow! I didn't realize how long it has been since the last time I was here. I might have been feeling a little better... No, I'm not sick. I didn't got sick. It's just that I don't feel like doing something for quite a while. Oh well, now that I'm back, I guess I feel like doing something :)

So, what has been keeping me busy? Nothing much, really. Only that I've been doing a lot of online shopping. I know, I am guilty. But, what can I do if the price is just so right? Especially this designer underwear! I already owned a couple of pairs of these diesel underwears and they just fit right. You don't have to worry about wedgies :). Plus zappos service is excellent!

Ok. Ok. You might think I'm only doing online shopping for undies. No. I actually buy a lot of stuff online. Because I notice that I save more that way. More bargains, more selections and you don't have to worry about encountering some unrespectful salesladies. You know how they are when they get up from the wrong side of the bed and go to work... just like any other normal person :)

Smell the change?

All these years, I always believe that if somebody looks good, he feels good, and he smells good. I mean, what else could go wrong? That's always the case, right? Or probably just in mine and my husbands case? Hmmm...

And speaking of smell, who doesn't want to smell good around everybody? Nobody does! Especially my husband. He would never leave the house without spraying his favorite perfume on. He actually has a scent for every occassion. I know it sounds self indulgent or whatever you call it, but it actually makes sense if you think about it. For him, it's just like dressing up for the right place at the right time. I hope it makes sense to you as it does to me.

I know what you are thinking -the price. You know what, if you do it like my husband does, you can actually save more. Because you don't use the same perfume all the time. You always have a selection. Plus, there are a lot of bargains online if you search for it.

And since summer is just around the corner, don't you think it's time to change your smell?

Go on changing...

It's been like forever since my last post. It's just that we've been very busy fixing and re-arranging things around the house. It will be our 2nd year living here in a couple of weeks and yet, we haven't been able to change some of the things that we said we are gonna change. We still have a long list to go!

But I'm glad hubby had already started re-constructing our garage door. He also had to change the lightings since the one we previously had is too bright, that we thought it consumes a lot of electricity. So, that's 2 out from our list :)

Speaking of buying new things for a change, at these day and age, I know you too are aware that you can buy everything online. And it always feels good if you can find all what you need in one place. It's a big plus if such site offers more products from various stores, right? This way, you can always get a better deal and save more. Just like For example, you need a new hanging lamp to compliment your new oriental rug, or probably your table lamp or desk lamp need an update. And in buying these lamps, you also have to take into consideration your bulb options, whether it is energy saver or not. has a lot to offer. It revolutionizes online shopping by finding all the stores in the internet. Isn't that nice? You don't need to drive around to look for something anymore. You can search for anything and everything at the comfort of your home!

I have to go to continue my re-arranging of things around here. We don't have that much stuff but I still have to re-arrange things to make space for the new stuff I'm expecting to arrive soon...

Happy Labor Day :)

Yep! It's our Labor Day Holiday today that's why I'm home all day. And what I did? Nothing much really. I just filled up this little book of mine with addresses and phone numbers. Finally, I had time to put all my important numbers in one book instead of having it written in a post-it note and stick everywhere :)


Isn't she cute? I had this little thingie for over a year now and I just had it filled with something! She might be glad for serving it's purpose now ;)

It's still hot! Still summer! Though it rains occasionally that helps the grass and weeds grow faster and taller, which is good. It means less dust for me. Grass and weeds hold them to the ground where they really belong. Not in my not-so-big-semi-flat-nose :)

Days have been passing by quickly. At least that’s how I feel. August is almost over and September is a few days away. I’m excited for January to come. A few weeks more to go! Ha! Ha!

Oh by the way, I just took this picture a couple of minutes ago. While I was sitting in bed with my laptop on my lap, I noticed this orange glare by the window…

Isn’t it amazing? Looks like something is burning up there! Hmmm....

Yes, that's how I've been lately. Lazy. I don't feel like doing anything. When I get home from work, I feel so tired that I wanted to take a nap before I can even change. I don't understand it co'z I didn't have that much to do at work. Hmmm... Probably that's one reason? Is it because I'm bored? Or probably becuase it's just too hot for the last few days? I guess that's what it is. Yeah, I guess that's the real reason. Imagine getting in your car with a 117 Degrees Farenheight at 5 o'clock in the afternoon! I feel like I'm being grilled inside. I just crack the window a little bit co'z it's dusty outside and dust makes me sick and I don't want to have runny nose in the middle of the summer! Ahhh... It's hard to be alive isn't it? :)

--This experience makes me wish I'm back in the Philippines. Why? Because in the Philippines, I don't own a car so, I don't have to worry about driving a hot car. Taxi is everywhere that when I get in one, it's cool inside and I just have to tell the driver my destination. I don't have to worry about traffic, it's the taxi drivers problem - if I have an appointment, I just have to alot an hour or two on the road. I don't have to worry about parking - I hate lateral parking-, because he will just drop me off to the place I told him to - that is if the driver is not twisted. Or, I can always choose to ride a jeepney or bus or LRT/MRT whenever I'm in a hurry so I don't have to worry about over speeding. --

Oh well... There's no turning back now. Lazy it is, alright. I wish it's already fall... and fall season all the time...

Now, that's makes me feel like I'm human again :))

PH: Support

My type of support:

Everytime our schedules met, we usually find time to stop by at our neighborhood DQ to have a cone of vanilla ice cream and eat it at their parking lot while watching people go by. DH used to eat his slowly (left) while I tend to eat mine like biting a bar of chocolate! Just look at how it looks (right)! And what usually happens is, I ended up supporting his so it won't fall down on his lap and make a mess :)

WS: At the ballpark

This is one of the place that we never miss to visit everytime we go on vacation... the Busch Stadium. Pic was actually taken 3 weeks ago, on the 2nd leg of our roadtrip. Though we sat 16 rows from the third base, we have to go up to take this picture! Silly, eh? :))

More Weekend Snapshot here.

Just some updates

And so, I got a couple of calls for interview. But I guess those jobs are not really for me for the interview date was while we were in the middle of our roadtrip.

We started ripping the road after I got out of the office on the 30th of May and came back on the 11th of June. It was short because I didn't have enough VL left, but we covered a lot of areas and meet a lot of people. We stopped at Kansas City to watch Drag Racing, St. Louis to watch a baseball game, Arkansas to visit relatives and friends, then back home thru Oklahoma. In short, we made a big circle. We didn't fly. We don't want to experience the hassle of flying again. We drove. And we saved a lot! We spent almost $600 (only) on gas. Nothing can beat that. We are in the comfort of our vehicle and we can stop whenever we want. I guess I can say that we had a lot of fun!

And since I came back, I've been very busy. At work, that is. It's good though. At least I'm working. My brain is working and I'm not being wasted.

By the way, I just talked to my sister yesterday. She sounded really good! Which is nice. She was able to recover really quick, to the delight of her doctors and the whole family. She'll have her next session by the end of this month. I hope she'll fight with it like the last one. Thank you all very much for your prayers!

WS: Burn the bad

I hope the sun will shine to my sister and burn all the bad cells in her body (just like how it does to the dark clouds in the pic) so she'll feel better...

A plea for my sister

Yesterday I slept like I have never slept for years. Now, I just don't feel like closing my eyes at all. Though inside, I feel tired. I have been feeling this way since my sister had her 1st session of chemotherapy.

If you still don't know, my older sister was diagnosed for having some kind of tumor on her breast 7 months ago, and she just had her 2nd chemo session on the 10th of this month. And there will be 4 sessions more. The last time I talked to her, she told me that her hair started to fall out, so the reader that I am, I advised her to shave it off. And she had it done. She don't need to see hairs on her pillow every morning and feel pity for herself. She needs all the strenght she has to fight the battle.

I've been reading a lot about chemotherapy effects and through it, I can feel how she is feeling right now. I just hope she'll remain brave and won't give up. I know she won't. I know she has this inner strenght that we don't have. But you know how it is sometimes, no matter how strong or brave you are, there's a point when you feel like you just don't have it. So please, whoever you are reading this right now, please help us pray for my sister? Please?


Thank you, my friend for this one... I hope I can help somebody in a little way..

Everyone is reminded to – help spread the awareness on the ‘Breast Cancer Awareness’ month of June. Please help convey the importance of regular examination and early detection of breast cancer in order to catch this disease when it first erupts, maximizing the chance of survival and recovery.

Each blogger or non-blogger can help the lives of many women by spreading the word about The Breast Cancer Site.

Curious Georgette

Hello there! :)

How's everybody doing?

So, I haven't been feeling good lately. I missed home. A lot. But I think I did something good! Why? Because during those days of feeling blah, I visited monster and cbuilder and applied to all the jobs advertised in our area that I feel like I can do and guess what??? Our phone has been ringing off the hook! That is, while I'm at work and my Dear Husband is trying to get some sleep. Poor him. But anyway, those who sent me emails, I already replied. While those who are just trying to catch me home (they probably need somebody to talk to, don't you think?), are still trying :)).

It's not that I don't like what I'm doing right now, it's just that I want to explore. I'd like to go on an interview and see what these 'curious' people want to know (probably about me) and I want to see too what they know about what they're doing. Just kidding! Actually, I just want to meet people. Those sensible ones. Those whom I can talk about business and stuff. It's not that I'm currently working with the not so sensible ones, it's just that it feels different. Everybody's actually nice (probably because they always comes to me for help) and friendly.

Oh well, the Curious Georgette in me is just probably at work these days co'z I really can't see me leaving my workplace right now. It's less than 15minutes drive from home, very convenient. I don't have to rush every morning, getting-up time is 630am, drives off at 740am, at my desk at exactly 800am, leaves around 510pm. Leaving at 600pm is very late already. And... I get paid every 15th and 30th day of the month!

Hmmm... We'll see what's going to happen next on my being a Curious Georgette...
