Fear Factor

As nonchalant... a cute little pig being accused of spreading the dreaded swine flu virus.

All this news about the AH1N1 virus is driving everyone mad. Just recently I had a little bout with flu, and this sends everyone in the office running for bottles of disinfectant and alcohol. Even my mom orders me to go to the hospital for an SOP check-up. I couldn't blame them, though. It's spreading like wildfire, and the least we all could do right now is to prevent the virus from stepping inside our bodies.

Good thing that the doctor told me what I had was just a seasonal fever, otherwise I would have freaked out like the rest of them. :D

As a precautionary measure, I am taking batches of multivitamins and ascorbic acid. It's better to be careful, really. :)

Cherry Chow Down

As sweet... canned cherries for the vodka.

I went to this fun party the other day that served Absolute Raspberry and Jagermeister and Jack Daniels. I had quite a lot of the Absolute Raspberry because I got kind of hooked to its fruity flavour that's reminiscent of cough syrup (seriously), and well, also because of the sweet cherries they kept serving it with.

The cherries, oh the cherries! Those sweet cherries that also tops my fave fruits (next to strawberry)...I must have consumed an entire bottle of Maraschino cherries and maybe 5 glasses of vodka. Talk about proportions.

I think I'm going to buy me one of those cherries in a bottle, maybe stack up on it so anytime I crave for it, it's within reach. Sweet!

In Between The Sheets

As soothing... the sound of soft rain hitting the roof.

No this isn't an adult-oriented post, I am just making that last minute post before I drift off to sleep. The rain is humming its nice lullaby right now and it's making me crawl under the sheets, my eyes about to shut close. And tomorrow, I will be looking for water droplets on leaves to take pictures of.

I love the rain. I don't know why but I have always been drawn to this great wonder of nature. I wouldn't even hesitate to jump on a heavy downpour--it should be fun.

But right now, I just want to crawl in between my sheets and sleep.

Smoke Machine

As hazy... cigarette smoke under a bright lamp.

A friend forwarded me an email about a local distributor who's selling electronic cigarettes. The details didn't register to me at first, and I was quite reluctant to believe the product claim but when I started probing more (thanks to Google search), I found out that the product does exist and it guarantees people low nicotine, tar, the works.

Among the other things that the Electronic Cigarette promises are:

*healthy substitute for traditional smoking



*durable and realistic-looking design

*comes in flavors that are very familiar to your taste


I could very well be wary of bogus stuff, but this--this is something!

Then again, I did quit already--and I did with only will power to boot. :) So that crosses me off the target market. Woohoo.

Riverdale Lawsuits

As strange... Jughead Jones's use for his hat.

I was randomly reading stuff on Wikipedia when I got linked to the wiki page of Archie Comics. And I was quite baffled by the number of lawsuits the management/owners of the publication have done over retaining full rights/exclusivitiy to anything and everything Archie. But to sue the poprock band The Veronicas for alleged trademark infringement and to stop fan bases from forming? Really now. I'm actually an Archie Comics fan and I have been thinking of creating a fan art, but reading the lawsuits, I don't think it's a good idea.

Read the rest of the lawsuits here. I just hope I'm wrong.

A Cup Of Complacency

As cozy... a cup of hot coffee.

On gloomy days like today, a cup of coffee offers the much needed warmth and comfort, enough to thaw my frozen ears and nose back to life.

It's cold but I'm doing fine! :)

Blue, White, Green Stripes

As mildly entertaining... realizing how your toothpaste and t-shirt look very similar.

I was in front of the mirror, putting toothpaste on my toothbrush, when I realized that the blue-white-green stripes of that triple action toothpaste I was using bore resemblance of the blue-white-green striped shirt that I was wearing. What a coincidence. This earned a short but hearty laugh from me. I think it's cute.

And this probably just validates how weird I am. :)
