Some Minor Difficulties, Tag and Jacked Up

:::Pioneering Delays:::

So I wasn't able to finish moving in this last week, because I got sick for a couple of days. The only thing left outside are a couple more of boxes full of bags, what-nots and what-have-yous. Probably will finish it this week. At the same time, it allowed me to take a good look at my bed and decided to change it into a new one, so it will be finished within this week, sorta like a japanese inspired one. Working in a construction company has its perks. Once I've settled in, I can say that my room was handbuilt and handcraft, hehehe.

I was sick, actually I'm still am, this being the season for colds and coughs. I seem to remember blogging that whenever I get sick it has an added effect (read: I am Invincible entry 9/17/03). This time was the worst. I went to the doctor to check up my cough and ... let's say at the end of it all I got diagnosed with borderline high blood pressure. My doctor advised, no ... pleaded with me to lay off the carbs. So now, no more carbs for me. Eat less. Excercise more. No more carbs. It's gonna be one hell of year.

Like the early pioneers, they had some delays in finishing their forts, got infected with the plague, and faced famine with only cabbages to eat. Nuff' said.

:::Circle of Eight:::

Acey tagged me with 8 things people don't know about me, so this is a small continuation to my 100 things.

1. If people will ask me what kind of girl I go for I'd say immediately "Those with brains and wit, slightly ticklish, understands every weird thing I do and can launch a public campaign on how great and wonderful I am." Ok, maybe not the last part.

2. I say things to friends like "My butt itches", "Dude, guess where I am? The bathroom!" and "God made me fat because if I'm thin I'd be Brad Pitt" in mock serious voice to get them to laugh. No charge necessary.

3. I've started getting into the interior decorating vibe. Designs, designs and more designs. Osmosis at work in the construction business.

4. I once saved a friend's life when we were kayaking in Davao. She screams like a little girl (ok, she is a girl) whenever she falls down the water when, once during a very turbulent rapids point, she fell down hard and almost got her head smashed up the rocks except when I dove down, grabbed her, and used my body as shield. And man, it hurts like hell.

5. Even though I love the beach, the rivers and all activities therein, I'm scared stiff of deep water. I have this irrational fear of "something" grabbing my leg ... or worse, a shark passes by. Plus, my favorite and best swimming skill: Floundering Madly In Water.

6. I REALLY wanted to publish something, but work and laziness keep me out of focus.

7. Three people I want to interview: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Muhammad Ali and Imelda Marcos.

8.If there's one thing I miss, it's jamming on stage live and loud. Get me a bass guitar or even just a piano, I'm there. Nothings beats that pure adrenaline rush of playing music in front of a crowd.

Ok, that's it. I'm tagging Ronstadt, Kim, Romy, Obi, Ben, Odessa, Mela and Dids. Eight people for eight things. Enjoy!

:::Back to the Matrix:::

I'm jacked up again to the Web, this time on the online game Lineage II. The game is pretty good, compared to the cutesy style of Ragnarok. I have been playing quite a bit, around 3-4 a hours a day, starting last Wednesday. So now, my Dwarf character is level 20, just changed job to a Scavenger class. I'm also starting a Dark Elf one, this time going in the lines of a summoner type. In any case, this game makes my day.

My level 20 Scavenger, RuneHunter.

My Level 10 Mystic, Nyarlathothep.

So, if you folks are playing also, drop me a line and maybe we could party together at the Blackbird Server. See you there!
