because i want to gross you out

ashley loves biting on rags. and i do mean LURVVEEEEEEE. he can chew on a used towel happily for hours on end.

and that's what he did to this faithful rag.

it was in this bag of old clothes that we were going to throw away. he snuck into the bag and picked it specifically for his devious ends. he then ran underneath the dining table (his usual modus operandi, as he knows we cannot reach him easily when he's there) and began chewing the daylights out of the sucker.

so we thought it was harmless and all, until he tore off an approximately 10cm strip from the rag. we tried to get the cloth back from him, which invariably led to him resisting and in his excitement, he swallowed the darn strip.

* * * * * * * * * *

the next day, ashley took a poop, but there was a stubborn dropping which refused to dislodge itself from his behind.

that's when we knew - the strip of rag doth returneth.

coverage

i'm sooo up to my eyeballs in work you can't believe. i don't really like to talk about work afterhours but these week or so has just been a deluge of incomings. and nothing seems to be leaving my cubicle!

on top of my own shit, i have to handle other people's bollocks as well cos my boss doesn't trust my colleague to handle things by himself so i have to guide him along for most of his projects (and in some cases, help clean up the mess or bloody hell just do it myself).

i suppose it's a good sign. it's great that she trusts me enough to leave me to my own devices but dammit stop giving me more things to do woman! at least for the rest of this year okay?

You Are Likely a Third Born
At your darkest moments, you feel vulnerable.At work and school, you do best when you're comparing things.When you love someone, you tend to like to please them.
In friendship, you are loyal to one person.Your ideal careers are: sales, police officer, newspaper reporter, inventor, poet, and animal trainer.You will leave your mark on the world with inventions, poetry, and inspiration.
The Birth Order Predictor


How the heow did they figure that one out??? Though technically, although i do indeed have two elder siblings, i'm not really third-born since i had a late brother as well. again, having said that, i think this test was more about the issue of having a third-born psyche, rather than actually having been physically the third-born child in a family, so i'll let this lil' matter pass...

viva la raza

eddie guerrero (October 9 1967 - November 13 2005)

you can lie, you can cheat, you can steal. but death is not a gimmick, it has no heel/face turns, there are no kayfabes.

viva la raza, for the last time.

Live like you were dying

He said I was in my early forties
with a lot of life before me
when a moment came that stopped me on a dime
and I spent most of the next days
looking at the x-rays
Talking bout the options
and talking bout sweet time
I asked him when it sank in
that this might really be the real end
how's it hit you when you get that kinda news
man what'd you do

and he said
I went sky diving
I went Rocky Mountain climbing
I went 2.7 seconds on a bull named FuManchu
and I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter
and I gave forgiveness I'd been denying
and he said someday I hope you get the chance
to live like you were dying.

He said I was finally the husband
that most the time I wasn't
and I became a friend a friend would like to have
and all the sudden going fishin
wasn't such an imposition
and I went three times that year I lost my dad
well I finally read the good book
and I took a good long hard look
at what I'd do if I could do it all again

and then
I went sky diving
I went Rocky Mountain climbing
I went 2.7 seconds on a bull named FuManchu
and I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter
and I gave forgiveness I'd been denying
and he said someday I hope you get the chance
to live like you were dying.

Like tomorrow was a gift and you got eternity to think about
what'd you do with it what did you do with it
what did I do with it
what would I do with it?

Sky diving
I went Rocky Mountain climbing
I went 2.7 seconds on a bull named FuManchu
and then I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter
and I watched an eagle as it was flying
and he said someday I hope you get the chance
to live like you were dying.
To live like you were dying
To live like you were dying
To live like you were dying
To live like you were dying

not a big fan of country, and definitely not usually suckered into all that sentimental crap but something about this tim mcgraw song gets to me.

maybe it's that part about reading the good book.

crazy life

toad the wet sprocket is swirling around in my head - good intentions, crazy life, et al - as i let the weekend sink in. spent saturdays catching up with good friends. the afternoon and evening was a glorious rush, stopping by suntec to pick up tickets for our trip in dec to malaysia. for the uninitiated, they had a travel malaysia fair during the weekend, and there were some pretty good deals. in the end, we paid like $229 for a 4D3N affair which will bring us to the heights of genting and the gastronomical delights of good ol' malacca. ah, malacca brings back many fond memories... for my stomach. seafood at the portugese settlement, chicken rice balls, and a smorgasbord of peranakan fare awaits us... can't wait!

oh! it's a shame none of us brought our cameras along. some of the major players in the malaysian coach tour circuit had brought in some of their top-of-the-line luxury coaches. and don't be sceptical i know some of these companies brag about the "luxury" coaches when they're just the air-conditioned equivalent of bas sekolah but boy, these babies were rocking! they had like massage chair seats, personal entertainment systems, attendants, and some of them were double-decker ones. who woulda thunk it!

anyway, after getting the tickets (which kevin will generously sponsor for all of us, hopefully? :P) we adjourned to crystal jade for dinner and subsequently brewerkz for the match of the season so far for me - Spurs vs the old enemy, the the bastards from down the road Ars*nal. We had a blinder of a first half! the gooners couldn't even get a shot in edgewise. jenas and carrick both had chances to put the game beyond any reasonable doubt (though with spurs, what would that be? 10-0? and we might even have to scrape a 10-9 win at the end, knowing our luck with scorelines, but anyhow...) then of course, that bloody frog pires had to ruin it all. somebody shld make it illegal for pires to play against spurs... needless to say, i got a bit grumpy after that.

and after the game, the gang headed off home and i went to meet up with alvin and harjit for more beer at chinaOne, and half-priced magaritas at cafe iguana. sweeeet, what a way to end a saturday night.

sunday - not quite as spectacular. work to clear, and other stuff that i cannot elaborate at this point. suffice to say i'm quite messed up in the head and given enough time, i can apply my anti-midas touch to anything in my life. more about that later...
