Old camera. New trick.

012607_1259a.jpg Originally uploaded by theoakmonster. Apparently I can use this crappy piece of camera phone to take some neat pictures once in a while. Seriously. Can’t wait to get a camera that is a phone. *sigh* (So, Miss Kitty Gadget – what’s the next one I should get? I mean, 5 years after it already comes out in Thailand/Asia that is. Hehe.)...

Pain is weakness leaving the body

YEAH FUCKING RIGHT! That little motto was on a Marine Corps. t-shirt Brandon has. Fuckin’ Marines. They’re not human. (And God bless them all for that too!) Anyhoo. Apparently my bad ankle doesn’t like the concrete pavement that much. My ankle has bugged me all day and it’s insy winsy little bitty swolen. The upside is that my legs aren’t sore. So at least somebody is getting used to the new ritualistic abuse called running. Now, to my preparation for tomorrow’s festivities. The Big Boss is leaving. Did I tell you that? And tomorrow is the day we throw him...

Here’s to your health

I have failed to mention to you guys that I have started my attempt at running again. Yep. I started a few weeks ago. At once a week rate. LOL. Pretty much I showed up at Pound 4 Pound on Monday.

Frenchy is getting married today!

I know we haven’t been close in the recent years, but I think being one of your early friends still count for something. After all, you introduced me to a lot of things that shaped the rest of my life. IRC. HTML. Star Wars. My first boyfriend Kit. The Derby — well, we were fools the first time we were there, weren’t we? But then you...

When stress attacks

Yep. I’m home. Again. The first one of the somewhat quarterly 24-hour exhaustion and low fever bug attack is here.  Then again, that is common when I’ve been stressed out and then suddenly there was a relief.  My system just crashed like that.  If you’ve been reading here a while, you should know. 🙂 Remember how I went to bed at 8:30 last night? Well, I woke up once in the dead of night drenched in sweat.  The kind that you get when your fever breaks.  And of course, after kicking off the blanket, a minute later, I was  cold...
