How Can a Cactus Die?

Darned if I know! My mom has the greenest thumb I know. Unfortunately, I can't say the same for myself. Despite the fact that several plants have withered away to brown nothingness under my care, my mom still likes giving me her creations every now and then. Her latest gift was this small pot of cacti that she placed in my bathroom. It was cute. A splash of green always livens the room up. And a cactus shouldn't be that hard to keep alive, right? After all you don't really have to water a cactus. Or do you? I don't really know. All I remember is Jerry asking me " How the heck can you kill a cactus? " Excuse me? I don't KILL plants. I may kill ants, but not plants! They just die by themselves! Unfortunately, when I checked the bathroom yesterday, I indeed found the cacti desperately struggling for their lives. I don't know the how or the why...but they are dying. Take a look: (This pic taken using Kvothe's cam. Apparently, it is n

I'm Destined to Struggle With Weight

You Are Destined to Struggle With Your Weight Like most people, you find it a little difficult to stay at at weight you're comfortable with. If you change a few habits and make food less important, you may find the struggle hardly exists anymore. Are You Destined To Be Overweight? I don't need to say anything more, do I? Oh, it says, "make food less important" - I do not understand how this is even possible! ;)

Me<--Either a Lazy Blogger or a Busy Bee

I would like to think that the latter fits me better. I thought that all the busy-ness would be left behind when 2009 entered but I was wrong. Work (day job) has been a bit quiet since yesterday, at least, but this is going to change come Monday. My other job (writing) is another story altogether. That is sheer craziness. I find myself having to catch up every single day. I am loving it but it can be stressful. On other fronts, I have been busy planning for the two trips we are having in the next 2 months. Early February, we're going to Baguio for a weekend to attend the wedding of two of our friends. I am quite excited about this because it's going to be at the Baguio Country Club and we are going to stay at The Manor in Camp John Hay . I have never stayed there before and I am sure it's going to be a lot of fun. Jerry has not been to Baguio and I am pretty sure that he will love it there - especially with the temperature being so low. This wedding is another


Talk about optimizing your time at work! Here's the perfect workstation for those who have to give 4 lessons in a row and do not have time to go to the loo for a break. Perhaps a nicer toilet seat would do the trick for me. More funny pics at

Trip to the Doctor, New Baby, and the Baconator Challenge

It's not what you're thinking. Allegations that I am in the family way have been flying around like anything, but I am NOT - just checked the other day. Anyhow, you know how Jethro (our PS3) conked out on us...we took him to the doc (Datablitz Megamall) yesterday for a check up. They're sending it to their tech guys and we won't be hearing anything till Tuesday. Naturally, that left us in a really dark mood. Oh, and right before we left the house, we discovered that Jerry's new phone was missing. We're unsure as to where it is but the consensus is that it somehow got lifted off the store again. Go figure. They say bad things come in threes - at least we're done: One, the lamp exploded. Two, Jethro conked out. Three, phone is gone. Going back to yesterday, we decided to lift our spirits by taking on the Baconator challenge at Wendy's. So what was it like? It was big - as you can see - but I have to say that it is not extraordinary. It taste
