Forward of All Forwards

From Me To You,

I want to thank all of you who have taken the time and trouble to send me your damn chain letters over the past few years. Yes, thank you, thank you,thank you from the bottom of what's left of my heart for making me feel safe, secure, blessed, and wealthy. Because of your concern...

  • I no longer can drink Coca Cola because it can remove toilet stains.
  • I no longer eat KFC because their chickens are actually horrible mutant freaks with no eyes or feathers.
  • I no longer drink anything out of a can because I will get sick from the rat feces and urine.
  • I no longer check the coin return on pay phones because I could be pricked with a needle infected with AIDS.
  • I no longer use cancer-causing deodorants even though I smell like a water buffalo on a hot day.
  • I no longer use margarine because it's one molecule away from being plastic.
  • I no longer go to shopping malls because someone will drug me with a perfume sample and rob me.
  • I no longer receive packages from UPS or FedEx since they are actually Al Qaeda in disguise.
  • I no longer answer the phone because someone will ask me to dial a stupid number for which I will get the phone bill from hell with calls to Jamaica, Uganda, Singapore, and Uzbekistan.
  • I no longer worry about my soul because I have 363,214 angels looking out for me. Thanks to you, I have learned that God only answers my prayers if I forward an email to seven of my friends and make a wish within five minutes. (Geez, the BIBLE did not mention it works that way!)
  • I no longer have any savings because I gave it to a sick girl who is about to die in the hospital (for the 1,387,258th time).
  • I no longer have any money at all, but that will change once I receive the £15,000 that Microsoft and AOL are sending me for participating in their special e-mail program.
Yes, I want to thank all of you soooooooo much for looking out for me! I will now return the favor.

If you don't send this e-mail to at least 1200 people in the next 60 seconds, a large bird with diarrhea will crap on your head at 5:00 PM this afternoon and the fleas of a thousand camels will infest your armpits. I know this will occur because it actually happened to a friend of a friend of a friend of a friend of a friend of a friend of a friend of my next door neighbour's ex-mother-in-law's 8th husband's 2nd cousin's 3rd husband's ex-wife's mother's beautician!

from our forwarded emails department, what else can we do but forward :-)

Manny Pacquiao Is Part Of My Vacation Plans


We are off to Bohol for a week-long family vacation. Since this a budget travel, I scoured the net for best deals on resorts and tours. I was lucky to find such deals that fit my budget. For the beach resorts, to save on money, I opt for a non-air conditioned room, since we are by the beach anyway and the resort also has a pool. My husband and I agreed on this. On our fourth night, we decided that we will move to a hotel in the city, and this is where Manny Pacquiao become a part of our vacation plans. See, my husband wants a room that has cable TV because the Pacquiao-Dela Hoya fight will be aired on December 7. Not that its difficult to find one. Its just that plans for that whole day would be confined to 1. going to mass and 2. swimming by the hotel's pool while my husband is holed up in the room, watching the fight. I told my husband that he can watch the fight once we get to Manila since it will be replayed for sure. Oh well, not that I am not rooting for Pacquiao, because I am. It's just that I was hoping to get the most out of this vacation and I don't want Pacquiao to be part of it.

Well, lets just see who wins. Me or my husband. He he.

Blogging is Not Fun When Even Feeds Wont Run




My other blog, To Be, To Be. Tutubi is under major re-construction. See, my feeds wont work. I tried everything I know (mainly, emailing Jhay, he he) and still the feeds there still wont update (see link below!) I even deleted that post hoping that it will re-direct somewhere else. Anyway, I am hoping to do a major overhaul and delete and reinstall all my widgets and see what made the error. Hay, this is turning to be an eye-opener. I should learn something about html and not just rely on free templates and wysiwyg editors.

If you can help me, just comment below, PRETTY PLEASE!

Jhay's Online Logs

The blogosphere is a weird place. Sometimes, you are lucky to find nice blogs and behind it, even nicer people. One such blog is Jhay's Online Logs. With a blog like his, you would think that Jhay would be so busy and famous and won't have time to answer my er, stupid question. You see, I have zero knowledge about blogging, save for writing. I use free templates and copy and paste codes using blogger easy to use template. So when my feeds wont update, and desperate for clues, I emailed Jay! And surprise, surprise, he very kindly told me what to do. Pero since di nga ako marunong, my feed still doesn't work. I ping-ed and ping-ed,pero ayaw niya talaga mag-update. Sorry, Jhay!

If you want to help me, just leave a message here and give me a tutorial. Oh, the blog in question is To be, To Be. Tutubi. If you put me on your blogroll, you'll see it doesn't update.

Again, thanks Jhay for the help and more power to your blog!

My 35-Peso Body Bag

Meet my P35 body bag. I fell in love with it at first sight.
Bought the bag at Penniwise Trading located at the ground floor of Quadrillion Mansion, N. Domingo, San Juan. A very good find indeed.

Jurassic Park author Michael Crichton dies at age 66

Michael Crichton, author of Jurassic Park died November 4, after a courageous and private battle against cancer, news reports said. His book, The Andromeda Strain is the very first sci-fi I have read when I was in high school. I still have the book with me, yellowish though the pages have become. I also like his book The Rising Sun.

US elections and back office chatter

We at the office were closely monitoring the results of the US presidential elections. And a little after 12nn, the US had its first African-American president, Barack Obama. As with usual office chatter, imaginations turned wild and comments became wistful, hopeful and sometimes hateful:
  • what if we were a US state, how many electoral votes would we have? How long before they know the results of the election from here? Paano ang dagdag-bawas? Fiesta athmosphere pa din kaya?
  • what if something bad happens to Obama between now and January 20 when he will be sworn to office? Who will take his place, his vice-Joe Biden or the 2nd runner up? Parang Ms Universe no? The role of the runner up is very important. If anything should happen to the crowned Ms Universe...
  • our Comelec officials were closely monitoring the US elections. Some I think are even abroad to observe. Tapos pagbalik naman dito, ano mangyayari? Sa palagay nyo ba e magiging computerized pa ang voting sa Pilipinas? Paano? E lahat ng nasa puwesto e umaasa na puede silang makapandaya so sino ang magpupush ng computerization?
  • ang galing no, election kanina pag pasok mo sa office, pag lunch break mo may presidente na. Sa atin isang buwan pa bago mo malaman. At minsan, panalo ka na, pagdatingng boto galing Mindanao, biglang lamang ng more than 1 million votes.
  • pati yung mga madre at pari dito sa atin , binidindisyunan pa ang mga ballot boxes. At saka ang atmosphere, parang fiesta.
  • hay, kailan pa kaya tayo makakarinig ng presidential candidate sa atin na nagconcede? Dito kasi, lahat ng natalo, nadaya. Well, they should know, gawain nila yun e.
It was nice to be part of an unfolding history, even only from TV and internet. And as we continue to chat about what the result of Barack Obama's victory would mean for us Filipinos here and abroad, we also continue to wish na sana, magkaroon tayo ng leader na mahihiya na sa buong mundo, and would usher na the modernization of our own electoral process.
