Long long long time ago, Toe tagged me for eight random facts about myself. Sorry, it took so long to comply with this meme.
This afternoon, while my husband was talking to his friends over the phone, I was eavesdropping, part of the time. Not that I wanted to but I was seated in front of my computer which is just a few steps from where his domain is so I could hear pretty much everything. I overheard him boasting to his friend that I am pretty easy to get along. He definitely earned pogi points for saying this. Just so you know, I didn’t blackmail or force him to say this. I must say, it felt good hearing this from him and the fun part was he didn’t know I heard it. I thought, now is best time to comply with a long overdue meme from Toe. I was hoping to hear more from the conversation but, I had to leave the room to do some chores before I headed to my Yoga class so now, I have to come up with 7 more.
Wait a moment, I might be able to seek help from my husband.
Me: S, I have to do a meme for 8 random facts about me, could you help me?
S: Ahh, friendly, lively, pleasant, comical, whimsical, in good shape for her age, (bakit may pahabol pang for her age)jovial, and bitchy(followed by a big laugh.)
I hope he meant bitchy in a nice way otherwise, no dinner for him tomorrow.
Here are more facts about yours truly:
When my mother died, I asked my friends and co-workers not to comfort, hug, or give me sympathy because I would cry inconsolably if they did, thus, I would not be able to concentrate on my job. Why I went to work, you might ask. Well, I preferred to keep my mind busy and occupied rather than dwelling on it at home. I would definitely go nuts in the house. So, this is my unique way of dealing with grief, which most of you, if not all, might find weird.
It doesn’t take much to please me. My daughters would ask me, mommy, what do you want for Christmas? And I would retort, “I don’t really want anything; you, being good always, is the greatest gift you can give me.” Of course, I always get something from my darling daughters. But with my husband, it is a different story. I want moolah, lots of moolah…hehehe, just kidding.
After living on the outskirts for about 10 years now, I don’t think I can live in the city again. I like trees, mountains, and rivers. I like small town atmosphere, cooler weather, and fresh and clean air. I know there is downside to living on the outlying area especially shopping for especialty items but we are getting by. We go down to the city once in every three week to shop for oriental food or I shop online.
I detest drinking pop. I am more of a water and tea drinker and I squeeze in carrot and green juice in between.
Last but not least: Tengo un amigo que se llama Paco. El es medico y vive en espana. De vez en cuando, el me deja un mensaje por el yahoo messenger. El es muy marvilloso, amable, y inteligente. Tenemos somos amigos por mucho tiempo. Me ayudaste escribir espanol bien. Ojala que practicamos a menudo pero nuestra diferencia del tiempo lo hace duro para nosotros. Si no oigo de el, yo preocupo. Me haria feliz si el me escribe un comento aqui en mi blog.
Now, I would like to pass this meme on to the following people: K, and prof Gerry (the best prof in Catanduanes State Colleges) nursyE, my long time good friend, and Elyani, my good friend from Indonesia,
