Our Weekend Memoirs: When old maids meet
Please scroll down for Sunday Stealing

A friend on the other side of the world mentioned this place. I discovered it's right down my backyard when I googled it. Since a co-old maid was game for a little exploration we went there last night. The name of this restaurant is apparently its most attractive feature.

We punctuated the food with conservative-wild observations of 21st century old maidenhood. Ah, there's my Screwdriver. Reliable in penetration.

"Don't these things come with a man?," we teased the server who gave us condoms instead of the usual mint candies after we settled the bill.

Sunday Stealing: The Majorly Personal Meme, Part The Last
Please scroll up for Our Weekend Memoirs

Today we ripped this meme off a blog that is written by a group of high school students. The blog is called Eternal Fireworks. The writers are: Michael, Kynan, Alex, Kenny, Chris, Leo, Shelley, Athy, Bam, Tina, and Bnita. There is no statement as to where it came from. 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 and we shall do it in parts. Cheers to all of us thieves!

41. What are your plans for this weekend? Saturday I had dinner with a friend at Cabbages and Condoms, and today I am bracing for machineless marking of university exams

42. Do you think someone might be thinking poorly about you? Why might that be? I don't know and I don't care. My life is good.

42. What features don't you have that you would like on your cell? umm... speech bubble that blinks "to be paroled in a heart beat"

43. How many people can comfortably sleep in your bed? two. three is crowded. I don't have room for a Camilla

47. Is there something that you could never give up? whatever's in my velvet-padded bucket

48. Would you, (or did you) prefer a small, intimate wedding reception, or a big-scale, over-the-top reception? The Thai flag was waving at the in-laws' residence during my wedding reception. I didn't know 95% of the guests. So I'll try intimate if I ever attempt the institution again, and I'll have veto power on everything including the groom's color socks

50. Do you hate anyone? I don't care

51. What were you doing at 12 am last night? re-reading Breaking Dawn

52. Is the last person you kissed before your current situation mad at you? the last person I kissed does not impact my current situation

53. Can a man and woman be friends without having feelings for each other? why are 'feelings' always assumed in a man-woman friendship?

54. Do you think long distance relationships work? If you’ve had one, tell us about it. It depends upon what long-distance entails

55. Do you know why it’s called “Random Boredom“? no time to research; laundry is still piled up

56. Do you think that it’s always the man’s responsibility to initiate sex? no

57. Have you ever made love while you were in the same room with another couple? no

59. Tell us the worst thing about your current or most recent S/O. unmatched pigheadedness

60. Would you write one question in today’s comments so that we could have our followers allow us to steal their questions? We’ll need at least 15. When should you procrastinate - now or later?

More stealers at Bud's Sunday Stealing headquarters.

Wow, what a restaurant name!!

I'm definitely procrastinating later. :)
Ebie said…
I vote 100% of their after dinner giveaway instead of the usual mint! The name is very inviting and sure would attract lots of customers.

Wah! my laundry lady is on vacation for a month so my laundry is already piling up!

Grin. The things you can learn from FFF. I had to reread the sentence to make sure I really read "condom."

I also love the smell after a rain.

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…
