No Pics This Weekend

I had a great weekend in the company of Lisa, Pete, Stef & JP but sadly we didn't take any photos! What the heck? Actually, I know why I'm not eager to whip out my lil' point & shoot. It's an Olympus cam, it can go underwater and is pretty cool. But I'm really not impressed by the quality of these little camera's anymore...When I dabbled in photography a while back, it was an SLR camera - but it's film. I don't want to get rid of it, because film pics are still cool to me, they have that grain that you just don't get with digital. The only reason why I'm not going trigger happy with it now is because I'm too broke to pay for developing. I've done it for many years, and it really adds up. Now I'm really wishing for a Nikon D60 - no, not because Ashton is promoting it, but because Stef told me last night, it rivals Canon Rebel but is much simpler to manage. I like simplicity. I really really really wanna get back into taking pics again...artistically...although it is a challenge in south Florida because I feel in NY I relied mainly on the coolness of "The Big City" to make my shot cool. Anyway, I may take out my Canon SLR and just not develop the pics until much later, make like a time capsule of it. OR I can learn how to develop my own pics. On a related note, Lisa is into knitting now - and since giving up on knitting a while back because I felt it was too complicated for me, I may just pick it up again. :) It would be cool to know how to knit things.

Just Played Coffee Shop Online...

It makes you CRAVE coffee the minute you start playing it! Weird. I don't have coffee daily anymore...I think I mainly was hooked on it because of the caffeine more than I was to the actual taste. So make sure you brew a cup before you play!

I made $19 bucks, which I thought was okay...but when I clicked at the high scores, people made $1000!

Tag, You're It!

I got "tagged" on a note on Facebook, where a friend wrote 20 random facts about herself. You're supossed to write 20 things about yourself, then tag 20 other people.

Just thought I'd share what I wrote on this blog...

1. I am a born procrastinator. This list was supposed to be done yesterday.

2. I am afraid of change, yet when it comes I endure gracefully.

3. Although I’ve been through a lot of uncertainty, I’ve learned a lot from being outside my comfort zone.

4. I learned to read at the age of 3 ½, skipped Kindergarten and was put in 1st grade top class after reading in front of the Principal. (Don’t know if they have “top class” anymore).

5. I am a neat freak…yet sometimes the house gets messy. I procrastinate and don’t clean it for a while, and then I get my days with bursts of energy where I clean for hours.

6. I fear childbirth, and the thought of a child changing my life forever. If it happens, it WILL be planned, and still then, I will probably be terrified…I fear the unknown.

7. I miss my husband when he’s away, but thoroughly enjoy my time alone.

8. My nickname used to be brat. USED to be.

9. When I’m flipping channels, and see Flavor of Love, Rock of Love, or Girls Next Door – I can’t help but watch the train wrecks…

10. I’ve done some traveling in my lifetime – Canada, England, Wales, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Mexico, France, Italy, Spain, Philippines – that’s 10 countries…(I’m probably forgetting one) stopped over in Taiwan, and whilst on a train from Paris to Rome we drove through Switzerland – does that count as 11 and 12? I love travel and suffer from the travel bug from time to time. I have a lot of new countries that I would like to explore…but am dying to go back to Italy.

11. I’ve slept at a hostel while traveling.

12. I’m going to take motorcycle lessons one day and surprise my husband…well, it won’t be a surprise if he sees this.

13. I used to draw and write poetry as a teenager while locked up in my room. I miss doing creative things sometimes.

14. I still write in a journal…I contemplate burning my collection just in case I die. I don’t really read my past entries…

15. I met quite a few celebrities while living in NY.

16. Grunge or Hip Hop? I was “Grunge” for a few years in H.S.

17. I accidentally ran over a kitten in my driveway. I was traumatized for a few…

18. I have a half sister who looks a lot like me, since she is also half Dominican and Filipino and we are a month apart. I also have a bunch of half bro’s and sisters that I have never met, including my own father.

19. I love Karaoke, and have some cherished memories of singing in Chelsea Piers…why oh why did that have to end?

20. I love makeup and makeup sales. I recently spent $2 bucks on a brand name eye pencil. Oh yeah, and I am a product junkie…my bathroom is STOCKED.

My Place...

...is a mess. I have a luggage from NY that I haven't even unpacked yet, I have laundry that needs attention, I have to vacuum, tidy up, put stuff away....SIGH. And all I wanna do when I get home from work is just crash. It's not as bad as it sounds...would probably take a couple hours of tackling...but boy oh boy do I procrastinate.

Feeling Blue

I'm really feeling blue...that is, the color of this blog! Yeah, I changed the template and like this one a lot. The pink one didn't really feel right. What I like about this template and the last one, is the 3 columns. When searching for templates, I really didn't like the ones with right navigation. I like it on the left for some reason.

Anyway, my favorite show Lost is coming back this month, also Fringe. Here is an alternate ending to last season of Lost. Yeah, if it were Sawyer, that will KILL the ratings next season, LOL! I'm not sure if all the new stuff from last season is sitting well with me...all the new characters, the past and future flash backs - the future ones make me kinda uneasy, as well as the creepy visits from Island folk. I just saw a few minutes of a rerun of the episode where Sun had her baby and we learn of Jin's fate. It totally sucks. But I'm still hooked. Oh well.

And for those who haven't seen this yet, it's totally sad yet hilarious at the same time...it's a remix of "I'm Walking On Sunshine" Starring Allison from Intervention.

Wow, It's Been A Long Time

I joined Facebook and forgot all about Blogger. So it's been a while since my last post. Well, what's new lately? Everything. My life is in a constant state of flux. Keeps me from being bored I guess. Well since my last post, I've had a few visitors. The Tea Queen of Astoria for one. She had a good time, although I wished she had more time to spend. I also wished I wasn't as broke so I could actually do stuff. You don't realize how much money is linked to activities and options nowadays until you find yourself broke one day. I took a couple of weeks off due to the holidays. It sort of feels good to get working again. 2009 is a new year. This year, I'm shooting for some things to happen. A friend recently said "09 is all mine" - lol. It's a good way to start the year I guess... Your mindset has a lot of control over the outcome.

I was in NY recently...short trip really...it was very cold. I wanted to shoot myself. I'm back in 70 degree weather. Don't hate me.
