It's summertime. It's hot. Nothing's really going on. So here's a blog filler of sorts for the time being...
Things I’m Happy About:
- Starbucks finally offering Green Tea Frappuccino over here! I know it’s been available for years in Asia (and maybe some states), but we just got it about a month ago. Not that I haven’t had it before…my local Japanese market carries it own version.
- My friend Steve is back from Australia bearing presents! Yippee! And maybe now I have someone to come with to check out this band this coming Thursday night. Right Steve?
- Our still unnamed band will be going into the studio this Sunday to records some songs. Finally. Who knows, we may come out with a band name as well.
- Jamba Juice's Mango-A-Go-Go. If I had my way, I’d have one everyday, but alas…at $4.00 a pop, it’s a weekend splurge, like Starbucks.
- Reading new comments on a blog post.
- My mom making me food this weekend (my request was arroz caldo and adobo).
- Getting a facial at Bliss this Saturday. I love their basic facials with oxygen mask. I have $50 gift cert, still not enough to cover it, but at least it’ll be partly paid for.
- Sa wakas! After years of trying on Seven jeans and not finding a pair that fit properly, I finally found a pair last Saturday and bought it! With a gift certificate to boot! So I didn’t even have to shell out money for them! It’s like I got them for free! Of course, I do have to pay for alterations (see #5 below).
- This new Spanish joint near work that offer $4 combos with a drink. So that’s rice and beans, a side salad, an entrée, and a drink for only $4! Can’t beat that!
- Ice cream. I swear, I eat at least a pint a week.
- Paul Newman's Organic Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups....*drool* my new discovery and favorite chocolate.
- A nice big, hot bowl of pho bo (Vietnamese Beef Noodle Soup).
- Reading a really good book like Harry Potter Book 6.
- Getting paid and knowing you have money (at least until you pay the bills).
- Knowing there’s only 3 full months to go before I go on my Italian holiday!
Things I Get Annoyed About:
- When people don’t e-mail back. When people e-mail me, I respond promptly. I have some friends who don’t. I know its’ part of their “charm” whatever, and yes I accept them fault and all. But then I hear from them maybe a week later, 2 weeks later, 3 weeks later about something else completely disregarding what I e-mailed about. No courtesy. I know I should be used to it, but it still annoys me.
- People who talk in movie theaters; people who leave their cell phones on in theaters; people who answer their phone in theaters; people who bring young kids to movies that are clearly PG-13 or R-rated and let their kids talk or fidget around!
- People who say “what happened?” if they can’t hear something you said. Nothing freaking happened. Say “excuse me” or “pardon”. Not freaking “what happened”.
- People who give you dumb unsolicited advice. I just don’t dig it. Like for example, some lady told me "when you get to your office, you should fix your skirt." Hello...as if I'm not aware that my skirt was moving around all that time.
- The fact that I have to get almost every single pair of pants hemmed. It’s shitty being short. Even the petite pants I get need to be hemmed about an inch!
- This 90+ weather we’re having at the moment. Not cool.
- That I still haven’t hauled my ass to the gym. I’m a fat tub of lard.
- My hair falling out. I’m surprised I’m not already bald. Sigh.
- Telemarketers calling my cell phone.
- Migraines. Since it’s so darn hot, I’ve been waking up almost everyday with a freaking migraine. It kills. Migraines make me nauseated and cranky.
- The fact that I’m not just photogenic. Hell, I look downright busted in a lot of pictures I take. It sucks. I’m only lucky that my wedding photos didn’t come out all nasty.
- The fact that the band is progressing ever so slowly.
- Washing dishes.
- People who are kuripot. And I'm not talking about money issues.
- Netflix saying that they didn’t receive a DVD that I mailed back.
Song of the Day:
Jumping Someone Else’s Train by The Cure
