Going to work

And you are complaining about taking the sardine-packed bus to work?

a) I am a whiner.
b) I don't know how to ride a bicycle.
c) He's got strong arms and legs, but I don't.
d) He is a dedicated and responsible worker. Hence he'll risk everything to show up at work.
e) I have not seen something like that before.

"My favorite student"

School Daze
It was at the end of the school year, and a kindergarten teacher was receiving gifts from her pupils.

The florist's son handed her a gift. She shook it, held it overhead, and said, "I bet I know what it is. Some flowers." "

That's right" the boy said, "but how did you know?"

"Oh, just a wild guess," she said.

The next pupil was the candy shop owner's daughter.

The teacher held her gift overhead, shook it, and said, "I bet I can guess what it is. A box of sweets."

"That's right, but how did you know?" asked the girl.

"Oh, just a wild guess," said the teacher.

The next gift was from the son of the liquor store owner. The teacher held the package overhead, but it was leaking. She touched a drop of the leakage with her finger and touched it to her tongue.

"Is it wine?" she asked.

"No," the boy replied, with some excitement.

The teacher repeated the process, taking a larger drop of the leakage to her tongue.

"Is it champagne?" she asked.

"No," the boy replied, with more excitement.

The teacher took one more taste before declaring, "I give up, what is it?"

With great glee, the boy replied, "It's a puppy!"

The Festive Hairstyle

Gosh...I am speechless!!!

A south Wales bus driver has spruced himself up for Christmas by having a mini fir tree woven into his hair.

Thirty-one-year-old Mark Davis, from Pontypool, has even hung fairy lights from his head. Good-humoured managers have allowed him to carry on driving his double-decker bus while sporting the eye-catching artificial tree.

The father-of-two said: "I've had a few wacky hairdos before, but this one is head and shoulders above the rest."

"It gives everyone a lift - especially if they get on my bus on their way to do their Christmas shopping."

The bus driver spent two-and-a-half hours in a local hair salon having his hair dyed red and having a holly design shaved into it. Then the mini Christmas tree was delicately woven into his hair before the lights were added.

The festive hairstyle is the latest in a long line of unusual hair cuts for Mark. In the past he sported a dartboard design, a Playboy bunny, and Welsh dragon. 'Go overboard' He added: "It gives everyone a laugh and kids love it. "I wanted to go overboard this year and it's great fun. "The attitude of people to it is amazing."

But Mark added that having a Christmas tree permanently perched on top of his head presented some problems. He said: "It's very difficult to sleep with it. "I have to sleep at the end of the bed so it doesn't get stuck to the headboard."

Pick me, Pick me not

Posted below is a list that was sent to me earlier by one of my friends(doctor-wannabe's). This list, filled with nose-related-terms, will definately give you a better understanding on some of the medical terms used on TV hits like House, M.D. and Grey's Anatomy.

Nose Picking Glossary

THE KIDDIE PICK: When you'r by yourself and uninhibently twist your forefinger into your nostril with childlike joy and freedom. And the best part is there is no limit.

CAMOUFLAGED KIDDIE PICK: When in the presence of other people, you wrap forefinger in a tissue, then thrust it in deep and hold back the smile.

FAKE NOSE SCRATCH: When you make believe you've got an itch but you'r really trolling the nostril edge for stray boogers.

MAKING A MEAL OUT OF IT: You do it so furiously, and for so long your probably entitled to dessert.

SURPRISE PICKINGS: When a sneeze or laugh causes snot to come hurtling out of your nose and you have to gracefully clean it off your shirt.
AUTOPICK: The kind you do in a car when no one's looking.

PICK AND SAVE: When you have to pick it quickly, just when someone looks away, and than you pocket the snot so they don't catch on to what you did.

PICK AND ROLL: No explanation needed.

PICK AND FLICK: Ditto.

PICK AND STICK: You wanted it to be a "PICK AND FLICK" but it stubbornly clings to your fingertip.

PAYDIRT: The kind when you remove a piece of snot so big it improves your breathing by 90%.

Boiling or Frying?

I purchased a packet of Rice Stick and some canned food at a local Asian grocery store over the weekend. Brought everything home and all ready to make a nice meal. Being a bad cook coupled with a lack of knowledge in preparing Rice Stick, I flipped the packet over and refered to the instructions. Molly schmolly, those directions are
pretty darn hilarious! What?..."the drip" and "accessories"?

no pain no gain?

You are heading to the post office to buy some stamps and drop off some letters/packages.



After half an hour inside that place, you're finally done. As you are walking back to your car, you notice something flapping on the ground. So out of curiousity, you go closer to check it out and you see this



First thing that comes to your mind is
a) Yippee, today is my lucky day. More for me.
or
b) The $ ain't mine. Just leave it!
or
c) It's a setup by one of those reality shows. Not gonna fall for it.
or
d) Inform the post office management about this $.
or
e) If I keep it, I'll somehow eventually lose that same amount of $.
or
f) Use the $ to buy 2 Tall Starbucks Coffee Frappuccino for friends. Money for a good cause, so I am clean!!!

GLC is on...

Ok, I've got a lot of tiny bones to pick today. Kinda behind schedule on maaaannnyyy things(including reading my favorite blogs)after the long weekend. Hopefully things will get better by tomorrow.

Anyway, after much thoughtful consideration, I've decided to begin the 1st of a 4-part(even better than Lord of the Rings trilogy haha minus the dough) Global Live Chat sessions on 12/2. Since we'll be wrapping this year up in about 32 days, I want to take some time "off" to "meet" up with worldwide fellow bloggers before the famous Times Square New Year's Eve ball drops :P . So mark your calender and hope to see everyone on 12/2.

Countdown to GLC... for more info, please refer to sidebar

Turkey day weekend

Hey, I am baccccck! Thank you all for stopping by my blog and leaving encouraging comments.

Well, Thanksgiving day came and flew past. Had plenty of turkey (some still in my stomach due to leftovers), wide variety of foods(out of my system ummm... I believe 24 hours ago :P ) , and fun over the past 4 days. And, the weather was just absolutely wonderful, in the 80's (24-27C). Some people thought that it was a little too warm for late November but not me. It was just perfect weather for driving from one place to another to visit friends. Oh yes, I also went running after the ball with a bunch of football fanatics for about an hour and 45 mins and that was yesterday.

As I'm typing this post, I am bundled up to 3 layers. I kid you not! It has been a cold day and it's going to be even colder tonight(down to -2C). Can't do nothing except to brave the brutal cold *sigh*. I guess I'm going out to collect some firewood once I am done here.

One last thing, back by popular demand(hahaha), I am considering doing a few more sessions of "Global Live Chat"(probably once per week Asia night time) all the way to Christmas. I promise I'll plan it better this time :)


It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year
With the kids jingle belling
And everyone telling you "Be of good cheer"
It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year
It's the hap -happiest season of all
With those holiday greetings and gay happy meetings
When friends come to call
It's the hap - happiest season of all ...
