HDH Week #27: Cowboys

More humor here!

A cowboy and a biker are on death row, and are to be executed on the same day. The day comes, and they are brught to the gas chamber. The warden asks the cowboy if he has a last request, to which the cowboy replies, "Ah shore do, wardn. Ahd be mighty grateful ifn yood play Achy Breaky Heart fur me bahfore ah hafta go." "Sure enough, cowboy, we can do that," says the warden. He turns to the biker, "And you, biker, whats your last request?" "That you kill me first."


A cowboy rode into town ...

A cowboy rode into town and stopped at the saloon for a drink. Unfortunately, the locals always had a habit of picking on newcomers. When he finished, he found his horse had been stolen.

He comes back into the bar, handily flips his gun into the air, catches it above his head without even looking and fires a shot into the ceiling. "Who stole my horse?" he yelled with surprising forcefulness.

No one answered.

"I'm gonna have another beer and if my horse ain't back outside by the time I'm finished, I'm gonna do what I dun back in Texas and I don't want to have to do what I dun back in Texas!"

Some of the locals shifted restlessly.

He had another beer, walked outside, and his horse was back! He saddled up and started to ride out of town.

The bartender wandered out of the bar and asked, "Say partner, what happened in Texas?"

The cowboy turned back and said, "I had to walk home!"

Let's drink to good health and long life... hehehe *burp*

"busy" weekend

>> Sunday, August 24

I haven't been the busy blogger/plurker/worker this weekend.. cause I have been too "busy" running around the city trying out new food (heheh).. I still have a lot of blog rounds to do and plurks too (my karma has been on a steady decline this past few days). Surprisingly I'm now finding plurk a bit dull.. hehehe if you're a plurk addict don't bite my head off ok?! I think the "fun" is just starting to wear off..

Anywho... what I did from Friday night until now (its Sunday night, in case your wondering) was hopping from one restaurant to the other (trying out anything from the menus that catches our eyes.. hehe) I might do another blog post about this (if I'm not too tired or too busy..) I've been running around the city this weekend (with E.M.A. of course.. ehheh) and haven't been online since Friday I think. I just went online tonight to check on a few things...

Let me just post this new conversation at dNeero... and I'll bid you all a good night.. :)


Phelps is a Tiger

>> Friday, August 22

I am not really into sports or anything of that sort (I didn't even watch the Olympic games), but dang!, Michael Phelps is just an incredible athlete. He's a 14-time Olympic gold medalist and he holds around 7 world records in swimming. Now that's a great athlete! To think he was diagnosed with Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) when he was still young, and only started swimming just to provide an outlet for his energy.

HDH Week 26: Lawyers

>> Wednesday, August 20

More jokes?! Click here! Yes here!

Consultation fees

A lawyer's dog, running around town unleashed, heads for a butcher shop and steals a roast. The butcher goes to the lawyer's office and asks, "if a dog running unleashed steals a piece of meat from my store, do I have a right to demand payment for the meat from the dog's owner?" The lawyer answers, "Absolutely."

"Then you owe me $8.50. Your dog was loose and stole a roast from me today."

The lawyer, without a word, writes the butcher a check for $8.50. The butcher, having a feeling of satisfaction, leaves.

Three days later, the butcher finds a bill from the lawyer: $100 due for a consultation.

A Series of Unfortunate Events

These past few days have been so bad for me. I think it started last Friday afternoon. I was in a hurry to finish up work so I can go out and buy some stuff and pay some bills.. to my dismay my salary hasn't been transferred to my bank account yet.. :( so much for shopping... anyway, when I got home I tried to call E.M.A. but there was something wrong with Sun Cellular's network. I was able to call him though around late in the evening. Maybe it was just a bad day for me...

Saturday went by without any hassles, I even bought a few things and clothes.. teehee... and paid some bills. Now because of my shopping spree last Saturday (it was raining then), I had a pretty high fever came Sunday. I just ordered some pizza from Greenwhich 'cause I was too tired to cook (my bro has a Greencard so free pizza for us.. yipppee!!!).

Then came Monday.. You see Mondays in our company is so so busy. I have to make A LOT of reports, set up some tasks for the week, blah blah blah... AND I don't have an internet connection.. WTF?! I called up my customer service and guess what? NOBODY ANSWERED?!! WTF? A 24-hour Customer Service hotline and nobody answers?!! What the heck is wrong with my ISP?? I was able to work for only 2 hours. Gawd! Globelines really suck! Big time! I was fuming mad the whole day. How am I supposed to work now?! After a day of frustration and helplessness, I just broke down and cried. E.M.A. had to console me. hehe

Then came Tuesday, still no internet connection... tsk tsk tsk.. Now I'm really mad at Globelines! If I'll just sit around and mope nothing good will happen. I decided to go the nearest net cafe so I would be able to work. They charged Php20/hour, now that takes a big chunk on my budget since I'm working for 8 hours. Globelines should better give me rebate for this.. tsk tsk tsk..

Now working in a net cafe is pretty difficult. It was crammed with people, students mostly trying to make their school papers, projects, etc. After working for about 4 hours, I was having a terrible headache already. Four more hours staying in that cafe would probably kill me. But I decided to stay, naturally, all for the glory of work. shesh!!! After 8 hours of trying to work there, with head throbbing, I felt feverish. Now this is just what I need! A freakin fever?! So I went home, decided not work in a net cafe again. And prayed to God my connection will be back sooooooon.

Well... my prayers had been answered! I was all set to buy this prepaid Smartbro (another ISP) just incase I won't have a connection today. Well it's running again. Thank God! :) Now I have to make up for my lost hours last Monday. But what the heck, at least now I'm working at home.

I'm still buying that prepaid Smartbro though, Globe is just sooooo UNRELIABLE!

whew! This was a pretty loooong rant.. heheh now I have to get back to work.. :)


Do you buy or pay for...??

>> Sunday, August 17

Have you ever purchased anything online? I contemplated in buying this cute pair of sandals at eBay before. I have small feet (around size 5 or 6) and buying a good pair without trying it on might be a little risky for me. But what the heck after thinking on it over and over I decided to just do it. I bid on the item, hoping I would get it while hoping against it at the same time. Sounds weird right? Unfortunately for me, or was it fortunately, somebody outbid me. So I figured that wasn't for me. Or maybe that wouldn't fit.. who knows...??

It's kinda hard for me to trust someone I barely know. What if the seller is just fooling around and won't ship me the item, right? I keep thinking of all those what ifs and finally decided buying online is definitely a no-no for me. I'm the type of person that really has to examine the product thoroughly before purchasing it. Call me OCD or whatever but that's just me..

So how about you? Have you tried purchasing online?


Dog having a nightmare

>> Thursday, August 14

This is just too funny.. I have to share it..

My dog, Odie, does the same thing. I haven't caught her on video yet. Someday I will.. heehhe


Bicol Express

Ok so I made my very first bicol express yesterday. It wasn't really that spicy because I only put in a few chili peppers just in case, but anyway it was still delish. hehehe

When I cook, I'm not really particular in measurement. I'm too lazy to do that. ehheh So I do measuring by just looking (or plainly taking a wild estimate). If your interested to know how to cook this, I'm sharing this recipe (actually I found this online and made a few changes)...


Pork (cut in 1/2 inch slices)
Cooking oil/Vegetable oil
Chopped onion
Chopped garlic
Freshly chopped ginger
Chopped chili peppers (depends on you how spicy you want in to be)
Fresh green peppers (sliced diagonally)
Red peppers (sliced diagonally)
Coconut cream
Salt (to taste)

Cooking Instructions:
1. Heat cooking oil in a skillet. Then add the pork slices and cover until lightly brown.
2. In another pan, saute garlic and onions in oil.
3. Add in ginger and cooked pork.
4. Just stir for about 5 min.
5. Add in the chopped chili peppers and stir until the pork is covered with the mixture.
6. Pour in the coconut cream. Then add the sliced red and green peppers.
7. Continue cooking for about 20 mins or until the sauce thickens.
8. Add some salt if necessary.

Note: Add chilis and peppers according to desired spiciness.

Another note: as you can see I didn't add any bagoong 'cause I'm allergic to that. You can add bagoong if you want too. :)


Visual Talking

>> Wednesday, August 13

I found this cool site (courtesy of dNeero) about Visual Talking. Visual talking is all about making a statement through photos. Try looking at this...

As you can see each photo represents a word or a few words. Honestly, some of the photos doesn't makes sense.. hehehe why don't you try it out, and see what you can come up... :)


HDH Week 25: Blondes

>> Tuesday, August 12

Think this post is funny? Click here for more!

On the first day of training for parachute jumping, a blonde listened intently to the instructor. He told them to start preparing for landing when they are at 300 feet.

The blonde asked, "How am I supposed to know when I'm at 300 feet?"

"That's a good question. When you get to 300 feet, you can recognize the faces of people on the ground."

After pondering his answer, she asked, "What happens if there's no one there I know?"


A blonde and a redhead met for dinner after work and were watching the 6 o'clock news. A man was shown threatening to jump from the Brooklyn Bridge. The blonde bet the redhead $50 that he wouldn't jump, and the redhead replied, "I'll take that bet!"

Anyway, sure enough, he jumped, so the blonde gave the redhead the $50 she owned. The redhead said, "I can't take this, you're my friend." The blonde said, "No. A bet's a bet."

So the redhead said, "Listen, I have to admit, I saw this one on the 5 o'clock news, so I can't take your money."

The blonde replied, "Well, so did I, but I never thought he'd jump again!"


There is a brunette and a blonde hanging over the edge of a cliff off a piece of rope. They realize that the rope will break if one of them doesn't let go and they will both fall to their deaths. The brunette starts this big heartwarming speech about how she is going to sacrifice herself. At the end of the speech the blonde starts clapping.


SU Tree of Life

Have you been to the SU Portal West Building? If not, then you should check that out. It's part of Silliman University's Twin Portal Building Project. The SUACONA (Silliman University Alumni Council of North America) has spearheaded a project called Tree of Life. It's a fund raiser of the council to build one of the two buildings located in the SU Gates of Knowledge. If you go inside the Portal West building you will see this.

A photo of the South Tree in the Portal West. Some of the leaves already have
metal plates on them. These workers are installing the interactive screen.

The Tree of life consists of three parts – a South Tree, a North Tree and an Interactive Screen. Each tree will have 350 leaves that recognizes gifts of US $1000 each and six rocks that recognizes gifts of US $5000 each. As seen in the photo, each leaf or rock has a metal plate on which an inscription is written in honor of the donating party. A plate, also with an inscription, will be placed on the Tree trunks to recognize a gift of US $100,000 each. The Interactive Screen placed at the center of the building's lobby provides a close-up view of the leaves, rocks and trunks.

A formal inauguration will be held on August 26, 2008 in time for the Founder's Day Celebration.

Note: To my batchmates (SUHS 2001, Centennial Batch), wouldn't it be great if we can raise a sum of $1000 to have a place in the Tree of Life? If you convert that to Philippine Peso it will only amount to around Php 44,000. So what say you?!


What's up in August?

>> Monday, August 11

Well August here is pretty busy, with the upcoming Founder's Day celeb, people are kinda running around with the preparations. I'm kinda one those people though. Just because I'm mostly at home doesn't mean I' m not busy right? :) I'm stuck at home doing my usual work, plus doing some errands for my parents - they are so busy with their projects and the opening of SUAM (that's Silliman University Anthropology Museum, just so you'll know), exhibits and stuff, and a "good" daughter that I am still manages to offer a helping hand - despite all these work my boss just seem too eager to unload into my hands. hmph.. but I'm happy.. a bit crazy now, but still happee happee... somehow I can still insert a few minutes of blogging and plurking.. heheheh (that takes my mind off the truckloads of work that still needs to be done)..

So what's up with you this August??

More conversations from dNeero.. heheh


Celiac disease

Here's something I learned from dNeero - celiac disease. According to my trusty friend Wiki, "is an autoimmune disorder of small intestine the that occurs in genetically predisposed people of all ages from middle infancy." Somehow it can interfere the absorption of nutrients from the food we eat. People who have this disease cannot tolerate gluten. When people with this disease take in food containing gluten their immune system responds by damaging the small intestine.

Just thinking of diseases makes me sad and weak. Hmph... enough of this...
