Thank God for Lifejackets

Where to begin? Time seems to be travelling so fast right now. This morning, while engrossed in my book, I almost missed my subway stop. Sometime earlier in the ride I realised that I had forgotten to take a transfer–my proof of payment for the later change to streetcar. Rush, rush, rush. It’s a rush […]

Me: The Latest ‘It’ Girl

When the sweetest, prettiest and craftiest Gnome in the world calls, a girl answers. Giao (affectionately known as Gnome G) has tagged me. Hence the title of today’s post. I’m “it”, dudes; and it sure feels good. 😛 *5* (five, cinco, cinq, 五) Five minutes to yourself: I’d take out my jewellery-making stash and stare […]

Festive Fun!

(Wrong Holiday, Right Colours.) Once again, I am at my computer sipping an overly-caffeinated beverage and getting frustrated and distracted! Fun! Since it’s Easter, I’m actually a little bit less distracted than usual. There’s certainly more face-to-face distraction with all the holiday events, but knowing that I have to hit mass with my mother and […]

Ante Meridiem

I haven’t been very efficient. It doesn’t help that there was a power outage in my neighbourhood this evening after I came home from the library. I’m not exactly into reading and writing by candlelight. I can’t blame the blackout for my failure to meet my productivity goals. I’m always sabotaging myself. It’s late. I’m […]

Sing the Chorus

The song starts like this, Ha, ha-ha, ha-ha Ha, ha-ha, ha Ha-ha, ha-ha, ha-ha Ha, ha-ha, ha And later, there’s more hahaha-ing: ‘Cause they only want Only want my ha, ha-ha Ha, ha-ha Only want what they want But, na, ah-ah Na, ah-ah Well, you know what has got me going, “Hahahahaha” right along with […]

Sidewalk Sale

Enough bitching and moaning. All that whinging was tiring me out. There’s still plenty of work to do, but none of my cranky sarcastic remarks or complaints will the process any easier. Sleep does help, though! Even though I hit the sack late last night, Sandman treated me well. I’m all rejuvenated and ready to […]

I saw the sign and it opened up my mind.

I’m not actually groovin’ to Ace of Base right now, but I do have “The Sign” in my head now because I just ran into a sign that I should go to bed. I finally picked up the pace on writing that paper of enormous proportions but it’s late and I am starting to feel […]

Finding Motivation

You might not believe that I, Miss Loquacious of Bamboo Star, actually spared you some additional details of yesterday’s suffering. It may have been both long and boring, but it was certainly not complete! In fact, not long after I had finished that abbreviated account of the day’s disasters, I went to take out my […]

Move over, Murphy.

Everything that could possibly have gone wrong today went wrong; but I didn’t cry once! Go me! I am a total rockstar! Okay, so I did whine a little. Just a little! Don’t get me wrong. I am no fragile flower, but you’d think that while waiting for my uterine lining to escape (now that’s […]
