A recap and a clown

Our Weekend Memoirs: Valentine Recap
Please scroll down for Sunday Stealing

Hearts day is over. I have blabbed about it in the last five days or so. This is a recap of the day. The Chinese new year celebrations aggravated the valentine traffic. It was pratical that we stayed put in one place, Siam Paragon. These are a trio of shots I intended for this post:

Chinese girls entertaining

Sunday Stealing: The Clown Meme 2
Please scroll up for Our Weekend Memoirs

Today we ripped this meme off blogger named Boppo from the blog Boppo the Clown's Journal. He states that he grabbed it at Drgncrystlwkr. 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. It is a long meme, so we will do it in parts. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!
Cheers to all of us thieves!

It looks like a Zheng to me. I think you are right. Now the question is did I dazzle you with brilliance or baffle you with BS? ROFLMAO. Great pictures my friend. I see you fixed question number 58. I called them on that one LOL And don't you like #45? Sitting there without an answer...pffft. OH well. I gotta solution to your 46: Eat more during your initial dining experience LOL. Great answers to yet another dull meme. :)

I love halo-halo also! :)
Hazel said…
judy, especially if it is topped with ube icecream and has buko underneath, yum!

Thom, I have to go to google first before saying 'zheng?' I skipped 45 thinking I'd go back but published the post before remembering to deal with it. And 58 I remember her as the wife of a guy whose work I was required to think of during lunch time in college. Chinese food easily makes you hungry. I think I'd eat again after eating chinese :)))

Ummm on 58 my dear sweet one. Go and look at how they wrote it. Or look on my blog. They copied the answer as well as the question from where they stole the meme from. That's what I was referring to :) PB&J = Peanut Butter and Jelly. They are the bomb really. But of course I had to me my snarky self with that one. I could eat Chinese all the time. :)

CJ is going to be a fine gentleman, very sweet to give you the long stem. I agree with all the traffic and commotion all over the world during the double celebration of Chinese New Year and Valentine's Day.

Love halo halo with ube ice cream, but I have not tried the durian-choco-almond.

This is the reason why Death Valley is called as such:

"A land of extremes, Death Valley is one of the hottest, driest and lowest places on earth. With summer temperatures averaging well over 100 degrees and a long history of human suffering in the vast desert, the valley is aptly named. However, this place of eroded badlands, sand dunes, and golden hills also has a haunting sense of beauty".

Enjoy your weekend!
Hazel said…
Yep, Thom, I figured it's the answer from where the meme was stolen. I trimmed it (fixed, you say) and blabbed my own answer which happens to be something I always seem to remember whenever the same question is asked :)

Ate Eb, thanks for the Death Valley info
Hootin' Anni said…
LOL on your 'shoes' answer. Depends on what? Heck, if I had my druthers, I'd be barefoot 24/7

Collectors first editions?

Anni, first editions would be awesome. I'm inclined to buy those that look like the kind my future grandchildren could appreciate :)

True about the hungry after an hour thing.

Sense and Sensibility: 200th anniversary

In 1811 Thomas Egerton of Whitehall, London published Sense and Sensibility. Quick math shows it has been two centuries since Jane Austen became a full-fledged author.

Quite an anniversary, indeed. A celebration, I declare.

Blogs regarding the publication anniversary of this romance novel picture Jane Austen's engagements whilst making the final touches of her manuscript from Sloane Street. In letters to her sister Cassandra, Jane gave accounts of her shopping for muslin, the party that their brother Henry and SIL Eliza gave; mentioned several acquaintances, and referred to her book as S and S.

As a fan I wonder which between sense and sensibility did JA deem more important since she portrayed both attributes equally well. I'm obliged to enthuse over my S & S reading experience. Alas, I only managed fourteen chapters before getting sidetracked by another novel, the very first that JA wrote. I will resume and complete my affair with the celebrant before 2011 ends.

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…
