1. If you could skywrite anything you wanted, what would it be?

Just keep driving

2. Did you get drunk at your prom?


3. What is your favorite spice to use cooking?

Lemon Pepper :)

4. What color is your roof?

uhhhmm.... i have no idea lol maroonish brown i think? lol

5. In a land far, far away I _____________

swam with the fishes and crashed into coral

6. In the Miss USA pageant, Miss California was asked; "Vermont recently became the fourth state to legalize same sex marriage. Do you think every state should follow suit? Why or why not?" and her answer was; "Well I think it's great that Americans are able to choose one or the other. Um, we live in a land that you can choose same sex marriage or opposite marriage and, you know what, in my country and in, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman," Carrie said to a mix of boos and applause. "No offense to anybody out there. But that's how I was raised and that's how I think that it should be between a man and a woman." Do you think that cost her the crown?

probably.. but then again, I really don't know how everyone else would react to this.. In my opinion, as long as a pageant contestant can state her own beliefs in an educated manner, they're good to go.. She kind of went around the question and just stated her belief on same sex marriage. I don't really know how the Miss USA pageant works, but if there IS a voting system, I definitely would not have voted for her.

7. Do you watch Miss USA/Miss America pageants?

I never intentionally do..

8. Have you ever driven/ridden on a tractor?

no, can't say that I have..

9. For the parents - what cartoon/children show did your child watch obsessively? (Hey, if you aren't a parent, maybe a niece or nephew...)

Well, I'm not a parent, but when I was a kid, I was hooked on anything on Nickelodeon! :) Rugrats, Doug, Gullah Gullah Island, etc :D

10. If I set a level on your living room floor - would it show that it was level?

Why would you? lol

11. What was the last restaurant you ate at?

Kuma's Corner in Chicago... waayyy overrated.. 45min wait, $35 for 2 burgers and Mac & Cheese

12. What's the picture on your wall calendar for this month?

I have no wall calendar this year :( But I DO have awesome wallpaper: cupcakes :D

13. Are you superstitious?


14. If I get into your car and turn on the radio - what type of radio station will I hear?

15. Would you rather wake up with a snake in your bed or a lizard?

LIZARD. omg a snake would give me a heart attack for sure!

16. Do you think schools have changed at all since the Columbine tragedy 10 years ago? In what ways?

I can't say that I ever saw any changes, mainly because when it happened, I was too young to know how schools WERE running..

See Dick fall and go boo boo.

See Jane take Dick to the doctor.

Dick broke his arm.

Dick needs some medicine.

See the Doctor write Dick a prescription.

See Jane Drive Dick to the Pharmacy.

See Dick give the prescription to the pharmacist.

Dick forgot his insurance card. UH OH, Bad Dick!

Jane didn’t bring her purse. UH OH, Poor Jane.

See the pharmacist tell Dick how much money he needs to buy his medicine.

See Dick frown at the Pharmacist: But I have insurance Ms.Pharmacist!

See Pharmacist ask Dick for card….again.

See Dick tell pharmacist again he doesn’t have it.

See the pharmacist tell Dick how much money he needs to buy his medicine…again.

And so it goes.

Be Prepared. DON”T BE A DICK.

[Sunday] Thunks

Sunday, April 19, 2009
Okay, so it's a lazy Sunday, and I've decided to answer someThursday Thunks.

1. Recently Berleen and I discovered the allure of the Twilight series. Have you ever been sucked in to the latest "thing"? (Like Harry Potter, the movie Titanic, social networking, etc. etc. etc.)

Definitely get hooked on the social networking sites.. I'm on facebook, myspace, and twitter religiously. Sadly, I tried to get ahead of my peers when it came to these.. so it's reasonable to say that I didn't get hooked on most other things.. simply because others got to it WAY too much for me. Anything teeny-boppers are hooked on (Twilight, Hannah Montana, etc) are as far from my list of interests as are tattoos and piercings.

2. What software do you use for your email?

gmail :)

3. Are you comfortable being nude?

to sleep, when no one is there, yes. I am very insecure about my body though, so I have trouble even thinking about wearing a bathing suit out anymore :(

4. What is something you plan on doing this summer?

ROAD TRIP! ANYWHERE! I also have plans on taking a few basic culinary classes, but it depends on finances.

5. Do you have a favorite movie/book quote? If so, what is it?

Sadly I can't think of any off the top of my head.. but I have a bunch written down and highlighted all around my room.. someday I'll find them :)

6. How many email addresses do you have?

let's see.. gmail, sbcglobal, yahoo, and tmobile.. but I only use the gmail and tmobile ones regularly.

7. Is the sky falling?

nope.. it's just a couple of aliens looking for their son, Kirby

8. Have you been to the Grand Canyon?

I've flown over it, but never taken a trip out there.. not sure if it's for me really.. I'm scared of heights (I start to feel very dizzy and scared I might pass out and fall off lol)

9. When was the last time you mailed a hand written letter?

A VERY long time ago.. I used to write to my grandparents in the Philippines all the time. Sadly, technology has taken over my life.

I have more arguments in my head than actually get my point across to him. ugh.
This is what happens when my reasoning is "choose your battles wisely"... I never end up saying what needs to be said because I don't know what I SHOULD be bringing up!

I am so annoyed / stressed / peeved right now. Ugh.

I feel as if the reason for my lack of blogging is because I've recently been hooked on the "quick-blog" ideals behind twitter. Because my cell is attached to the account, I can blog a few words just by texting.. or I can easily access it from the web on my sidekick too... It's just a lot more convenient than sitting down and blogging during my hectic schedules.

Anyways, enough of THAT plug. This weekend, I'm off to the drive-in. The movies that are playing are Monsters vs Aliens and Fast & Furious. We decided to invite the shop that JJ and his crew go to, and in turn, they invited everyone that came by for work. So now I believe we have at least 10-15 cars coming along.. not sure if everyone will be bringing dates or not, but we have a pretty good turn out expected =) After the movies, we're all going to cruise. I cannot WAIT! I have my camera ready and cupcakes baking. Well, not EXACTLY cupcakes. I absolutely love Bakerella's work so I decided to try her famous Cake Pops. I'm making two types of cake pops. The first one will be a blue "blob" [aka BOB].. and the second one, to tie along with F&F, will be a shift knob =)

I'm prettttyy excited about these.. I'm also baking regular cupcakes because I don't know how many people for sure are showing up, but I AM sure that the pops will be wiped out in no time. =)

I also recently made my own birthday cake [2 weeks ago].. Sadly I don't have a decent picture of it because we went out to eat and they brought the cake out at the end.. and it all came in a flash [no pun intended] and next thing I knew, we were already slicing it. I do, however, have a couple pictures blowing out the candles... you can somewhat see how nice the cake turned out:

and here's a side view:

It was delish! I did a Pina Colada cake with Malibu Coconut Rum whipped cream frosting =)

Sadly I'm not at my laptop at the moment so I don't have the bookmarked recipe.. I'll update this when I'm home so you guys can try it too.. The frosting, however, was super easy. Store-bought whipped cream, with about... 5 tablespoons of rum ;) Fold it together gently [DO NOT just mix it together. It will go flat and sad.]

Anyways, I'm off.. it's a beautiful day outside, and I have my camera =) Not sure where I'm going yet, but it's too gorgeous to stay indoors.
