Sunday Stealing: The 29'er Meme

Today we ripped this meme off a blogger named Alison from the blog Hairline Fracture She claims that she snagged this from Facebook. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

4. Why did you choose the shirt that you have on right now? It's been raining here so the surrounding is cooler than usual otherwise I normally go around my room topless

5. First thought when the alarm went off this morning? No alarm! It's Sunday for God's sake; and if it's not, I don't use alarm clocks. Sunlight is enough.

6. Last thought before going to sleep last night? Mr. Darcy dancing with Elizabeth. Pride and Prejudice is one of my best sleeping pills, aside from reading HP.

7. What do you miss being a child? Believing that Rapunzel was real, playing as much as I liked around the neighborhood, coming back to eat and going out again to play, my father spoiling me and always taking my side whenever my mother and I argued

15. At this point in your life would you rather start a new career or a new relationship? I fancy both so I'm working on both, but... ok, a new career then, one that will whack my brain into starting a new relationship

16. Do you have a “go to” person? At work yes, our vice president who luckily didn't hate me for the break-up of my marriage to his friend

25. What is the scariest thing that has happened to you as an adult? Flying my son to the Philippines after my split with the Ex. The point where Thai airport officers checked my
kiddo's documents with immigration police hovering; the jetbridge already detached, two flight crew helping by running my baby to the plane and me tailing them panting

26. What advice would you give to someone about to get married? Go ahead, experience it yourself.

27. What advice would you give someone starting their first job? Remember your future CV

Definitely like #12. I'd like him to be real, too. #25 is terrifying. Have a great week. :)

Hootin' Anni said…
Oh yes...yes!!! I too would love to dine ---and learn from him. To be able to go from dinner to a 'hunt' for more of the written codes. Wow. Great answer for #12.

Weekend Snapshot: The AIDS Temple (Lopburi I)

It is sometimes referred to as the AIDS Museum, I tend to call it AIDS Temple. Descriptively it is a buddhist hospice for AIDS patients, the largest one in Thailand. Three of us, a friend, my son and I paid Wat (temple) Phrabat Nampu in Lopburi a visit last weekend. As it is where people with AIDS go to to die, most of what we saw are not exactly the ones I'm in a hurry to show off. But if you are curious, you may want to click on a post I did days ago. Anyway, on with shots that I don't think will give anyone a coronary:

100 steps to the wat
After the climb this is where you arrive at

"View from the top" - those are bare cornfields visitors pass by on their way to the temple

Side view of the Life Museum which ironically displays mummies

A usual sight around Thai temples

Bone sculptures

The temple bell

Life is beautiful. Most of us would prefer that of course. AIDS is also real.


The Rumford is a much more efficient way to heat a room than earlier fireplaces....(Wikipedia on Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, designer of tall, shallow fireplaces which are now known as the Rumford, was an Anglo-American physicist known for his investigations of heat)Living in the tropics, I have been in close proximity with only three fireplaces in my life. There was an unused one in the home of my college professor in the Philippines. The other one from which I could feel the heat and see the fire dancing was in a hotel lobby in the Yorkshire Moors. Picture taking was quick. Two old ladies were having tea by it, but that was my first ever real fireplace experience, and I loved it. The latest I have touched is the one in Jane Austen's imaginary Northanger Abbey.
The fireplace, where she had expected the ample width and ponderous carvings of former times, was contracted to a Rumford, with slabs of plain though handsome marbles, and ornament over it of the prettiest English ch…

Honor, Awards and a Game

Tuesday Couch Potatoes: Made of Honor
Awards and a Game/Meme follow. Please scroll down a bit.

My pick for this week's TCP theme (wedding movie) is Made of Honor. I like the humor in it. We've all been to several weddings but how many of us can say I've been to one in which the maid of honor was a he? The scene which particularly cracked me up is when the priest mistook the maid of honor for a gay man =) If you're familiar with some of my likes, you'd know why I also love the Scotland location of the wedding. For more of the synopsis click here; and here's the trailer:

My super duper bloggy friend Thom of Thom's Place for Well Whatever and fellow Mom Tetcha of Pensive Thoughts awarded me this Beautiful Blogger award. I have to list seven things about me so here they are:

1. I love wearing jeans more than skirts.
2. One of my favorite colors is purple.
3. I don't mind spending sunrise…
