Keep a Chicken Handy

Image
So I guess I didn't get Lyme's Disease or Colorado Tick Fever....or at least that's what that fading bug bite is trying to convince me.  The swelling has finally subsided and no bull eye's target mark.  Interesting enough is that BBC has posted an article on how some people are really more attractive to mosquitoes than other people.  I can really relate to that.

Practical Optimism #2 -- Be Content With Your Office Desk

Image
It's Monday again!  Today my practical optimism wisdom to you is -- be content with your office desk.  You may be ready to throw a punch at me for telling you to be content with your office desk and tell me that I'm a bitch who lounges all day in her PJs and knows nothing about the suffering you go through daily at that desk (which is entirely false!...well on most days).  But hold it for a sec.  I have a darn good reason for saying that.  You know a while ago where I was happy that I finally have an office to myself?  Well that office desk was a make-shift desk.  In fact it is a foldable picnic food table purchased at Walmart for $32. Yes I'm Walmart's whore.  But it's the first proper store in next town -- 10.4 miles to be exact (I googled.  And no, there is ONLY a tiny grocery store, a gas station, a laundromat, a cornerstore, a coffeeshop, a burger joint, and a restaurant in our town).  So Matt Damon in "We Bought A Zoo", don't you start wit

Conversation between Hubby and Wifey: The Afterglow

Image
This takes place during today's afternoon.  After a very very long hour of exercise, Wifey decides to reward herself with a facial (I don't know who thinks exercise is fun, but certainly not me).  She walks into the bathroom and slathers a transparent cooling gel substance onto her face.  As she finishes and proceeds to wash her hands, hubby steps in and just about to ask a question when he suddenly stops, looks perplexed and amazed at Wifey's face. W: What? (looks slightly embarrassed by the fact that she got caught wearing a mask) H: Wow, look what a little bit of exercise can do!! (Guess who was it that kindly "suggested" Wifey should work out.  Health freak!) W: Eh? (Very confused at the comment since she is definitely sure she just didn't lose 5 pounds from that workout and now look like a super model.) H: You all sparkly and glowy! (Insert wild hand gesturing.) W: It's my facial gel. (Rolls eyes as far back into her eye sockets as poss

The New Girl Dry Fish Life

Image
  Since last night I have been feverishly watching the Japanese soap opera "Hotaru no Hikari" (direct translation: "Life of a Dry Fish Girl".  I have to admit shamefully that I could be classified as a Dry Fish Girl.  When not going out, I do roam around my home in sleep wear.  I do roll around the floor quite a bit.  I guess the difference is that my mess is much more controlled. 0  Then again, my hubby was exclaiming the fact that I am Jess from "The New Girl" while he accompanied me watching the show on Hulu.  Obviously and naturally I denied it.  Then he went through the reasons: 1) I do make up silly songs and dance and proudly do my "gig" around the house without worrying my neighbors hearing me (Fine...I do do that...) 2) I love glitter (Who doesn't!?!) 3) I skip around instead of walking like a normal human being (I do skip around like a normal human being!) 4) I love skirts and dresses (Hello!  I'm a GIRL!) 5) I&#

Practical Optimism #1 -- Be Content to Eat Indoor

Image
 You know whenever you flip through some home design magazine or pinterest (yes I'm a pinterest addict), there must be some extraordinary designs that are just so gorgeous yet you can't help but think "What if...?"  Take this photo for instance.  Doesn't if give you the whole "I wish I were there to enjoy dinner with my loved ones and friends"?  I hate to break it to you.  It's okay this doesn't happen in your life.   First of all, there aren't many places in the world that would like you put up all this near a beach unless you have access to a beautiful beach.  Second of all, it is a lot of work to bring everything to the beach for the occasion.  And let's face it, in one way or another, you are creating pollution and damage to the beach by leaving behind some trash on the beautiful sand.  But most of all, life always dish out something we are not expecting no matter how much planning and speculations are put into the decision making.

Is This a Sign that I'm Gaining Audience?

I just received a comment on my article " Always Listen To Your Lioness " (for those who wants to read what's it about, please click on the link).  I have to say, that's by far one of the most read articles I've created.  When I clicked on it to see what the comment was about, I was hoping that it would be a nice or funny complement about what I wrote.  Since I'm always so lucky, I was also half-guessing that it could be my first hate-mail.  Instead, it was...

The Newest American Horror Story

Image
After a marathon of the first season of "New American Horror Story" and finally getting into bed, Wifey messes hair up and decides to play the Japanese ghost girl.  Yup.  That's the problem of marrying an Asian girl who loves horror flicks.  Smack the combination together, you'll get a wife who loves to freak you out just 'cause.  Well plus it's fun to see what it takes to get an all-macho guy squealing like a little pig.  Though I have to say, my hubby is a tough nut to crack.  Damn you Nut!  So anyway, back to the story...

What Good Wives Should Know about Enema

Hubby is required to take these antibiotic pills after he had some work done on his teeth.  Yup.  All thanks to chugging 4 Monster Drinks a day for a whole year.  Anyone who's reading this, stop with the Monster Drinks.  I'm serious.  Switch back to good ole' coffee.  I know it'll give you stains.  But at least you'll still have your teeth. Anyways, that was the background story that led to this conversation...

More Art on A Whim

I don't know why, why I thought owls are awesome, and I should make something with owls in it.  So I went to town with the idea.

Tadaaaa! Look What I Made!

Sloth Day Shirt by MochiWay Browse Sloth T-Shirts online at Zazzle.com Instead of being a sloth these days, I've been hard at work at a little project.  Since I'm always doodling and such, I've decided that I would like to try my hand at selling my designs and crazy ideas on Zazzle and Cafepress.  I've looked through all the regulations and have been so busy experimenting with dimensions, pixels, and all that technical stuff.  It's still far from officially being called a real store, but we all have to start from somewhere right?  So here's my latest invention from the Sloth Day concept.  It's a nice hint for your significant others.   For those who are having problem reading the text on the shirt. Here's what it says:  Wonder why sloths always have that smile on their face but look strangely evil at the same time? Choose:  1) They are having stomach cramps.  2) Their stomach cramps are keeping them up at night.  3)
