well deer ones (get it! i totally just made that up)…  stats, messages and comments tell me you’re reading my blog

so THANK YOU!

and IM SORRY!

i appologize for the lack new material and general un-excitment in this corner of the web.

it is not from a lack of stories or sights to tell of so im going to blame this PROBLEM on of my STRENGTHS

we did a ‘Strengths Finder’ personality test as a part of our internship training and one of my top five strengths was IDEATION. when i heard it – i, like you, thought THATS NOT A REAL THING! but as the book went on to explain, it means i love to dream dreams, new dreams, BIG dreams and have a never ending supply of ideas… usually pretty awesome ones that people would write books about if they were ever seen to fruition. but that plethora of ideas/stories/thoughts also lends itself to the problem of follow through because who has time to finish these things once they’ve begun?… there’s more ideas, dreams and thoughts to be had!  hence why i have 3 really great idea’s for blog posts STARTED in my draft folder but not finished…

so here, PAT and others

AN UPDATED POST! (and i really did appreciate your nudging)

lets begin again with light and airy and save the hard stuff for another day.

here’s something that could change how we live forever…

i have figured out a new form of temperature measurement that is bound to unite the world all too often divided by Celsius and Fahrenheit.  it just so happens that it is also a new segment of my blog that i will include from time to time. the segment (and measurement system) is called: “IT’S SO STINKIN HOT THAT…”

let me demonstrate:

‘Its so stinkin hot that… when i pour my shampoo into my hand it is warmer than my hand… and im pretty sure my body temperature is at boiling’

see! its a very easy measurement system that anyone can use.

so again, to be sure you understand:

‘its so stinkin hot that… when lydia and i get to work we crouch down almost on top of the nearest fan and blow it up our shirts, skirts and shorts and we dont even care that you think that sounds sketchy. fan + sweat-soaked clothes from 25 minutes of jeepnies and walking = 5 minutes of the closest thing we have to air conditioning… and it is sweet sweet gold”

now for some breif stories….

1) the other morning i woke up and walked into the bathroom and found a butiki (house lizzard) on our wall. i didnt know if they bit or jumped – so i didnt shower… THATS how creeped out i was

2) the other night i got up to pee, turned on the bathroom light and saw a 2 inch ipis (cockroach) hanging out on the showers ledge… i went to go get the Raid but when i got back i couldnt find him anywhere…  so i closed the bathroom and blocked access to our room with plastic bags under the door.

3) the other day at work i had just grabbed a spoon from the drawer and then moved to the other side of the kitchen to retrieve my food, when i saw a 4 or 5 inch gagamba (spider) scurry away from below the counter where my flip-flopped foot once stood. (this word is easy to remember because i think ‘BAAAAAHHHHHH’ at the end – a la kevin mcallister)

4) our American friend Ziwei is currently in-flight heading back to California. She has been great at adopting us and acquainting us with life in Metro Manila. Your hilarious imagination will be missed ZEDway!

This is in “REMEMBRANCE” of you (ha!)

Lydia, Ziwei and the 'non-person' (!)

so thats it for now im EXHAUSTED and haven’t really rested since i got here… mostly just crashed and done it all over again…

so sunny friends, enjoy tuesday… it was a good one!

***Lyrics and Link to Supertramp’s ‘Dreamer’ ***

(please note: i specifically chose this version of the song on youtube for its awesome graphics… and you’re welcome)

Dreamer, you know you are a dreamer
Well can you put your hands in your head, oh no!
I said dreamer, you’re nothing but a dreamer
Well can you put your hands in your head, oh no!
I said “Far out, – What a day, a year, a laugh it is!”
You know, – Well you know you had it comin’ to you,
Now there’s not a lot I can do

Dreamer, you stupid little dreamer;
So now you put your head in your hands, oh no!
I said “Far out, – What a day, a year, a laugh it is!”
You know, – Well you know you had it comin’ to you,
Now there’s not a lot I can do.

Well work it out someday

If I could see something
You can see anything you want boy
If I could be someone-
You can be anyone, celebrate boy.
If I could do something-
Well you can do something,
If I could do anything-
Well can you do something out of this world?

Take a dream on a Sunday
Take a life, take a holiday
Take a lie, take a dreamer
dream, dream, dream, dream, dream along…

Dreamer, you know you are a dreamer
Well can you put your hands in your head, oh no!
I said dreamer, you’re nothing but a dreamer
Well can you put your hands in your head, oh no!
OH NO!
