Yes, no, and in the air tonight

Musical Monday: In The Air Tonight
Please scroll down for Monday Mayhem

It was either Don Johnson or someone whose name I didn't pay as much attention to. Globe-trotting, short-term boyfriend mentioned that he briefly worked with one Miami Vice actor. Then off he went out to finish a meeting while I stayed behind to finish viewing bundles of photos. In one snapshot the guy he pointed out as the actor preceded him on the stairs of a plane. My mind ambled along opening scenes of The Real McCoy; the roar of Ferrari as Burnett and Tubbs sped on a dark highway interspersed with Phil Collins' bark-like "oh lord, oh lord, oh lord..." God I must have existed in the 80s already :D

Monday Mayhem: Yes or No
Please scroll up for Musical Monday

Today's meme is based on the popular YES or No.

We will focus on the internet. Answer yes or no for each question. Because I am so very nice, I will allow you to tell one story about one of your answers.


1. Googled yourself?
I thought it was silly, but I got to sort something someone said. Read: skin the little bug alive

2. Googled your neighbor?
Sometimes we're on the lift together; and as the mercury on the neighborliness thermometer plunges, so does the interest to bother about remembering that I don't even know their first names

3. Used Google maps to spy on someone?

You should be asking if I used google maps to locate Mt. Ararat

4. Spied on someone via Facebook?

5. Friended someone on Facebook that you don't know?
It's the other way around

6. Tweeted gossip?
not my style duh

7. Followed a celeb on Twitter?
I'd rather follow my own dreams

8. Kissed any one of your Facebook friends?
and loved it!

9. Regretted an online relationship?
knowing when to stop has its advantages

10. Dumped someone online?

11. Played a prank on someone online?

12. Spied on a High School bully online?
The bully in my high school must have had brains enough to victimize only those he could

13. Written a nasty email?
At my age, if I have to attack someone, I'll do it face to face

14. Sent something X-rated via email?
received - yes

15. Searched your state's/locality's database for predators?

16. Done an online search on someone's traffic offenses?
If it's not my concern, I don't bother

17. Ordered dinner online?

18. Purchased something over $250 online?

19. Left an anonymous comment?

20. Checked out someone else's email (as in spy on your s.o.)?
it's not me

Musical Monday is like a time machine to the 80s today. Must be something in, nevermind
Run DMT said…
I am so vain. I google myself way too much. More than I care to admit. LOL

Great MM pick! This song always gives me chills.
Hazel said…
ArtSnark, for those who are into that era maybe and for those.... no, never mind

Used to love Phil, whatever happened to him?
Thanks for he blast from the past!
Hazel said…
Harriet, I had time :)

Amanda, Phil is one of my faves too! I like many of his other songs as well

Diane, I didn't realize this MM would become sort of an 80s flashback but well, it's always good to reminisce the days :D

Peggy, I don't know. Last time I saw him perform was at the Queen's Jubilee at the Buckingham in what year was that... I've forgotten which year was it. I will always like his hits though
coopernicus said…
Phil Collins was kewl during the early Genesis days...but I know EVERYONE loves playing the drum intro to this song....
Hazel said…
coopernicus, oh yes he was; and who wouldn't love the drums in this song?
Kelly L said…
I love this song - I saw Phil Collins in concert in 1989 or 1990 at the Los Angeles forum.. when he sang this song - it gave me chills - it was awesome..

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.

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…


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…
