it’s friday, bitches!

Posted in Uncategorized on March 26, 2010 by Sophia

i suffered a major joy decline the past couple of days due to a bad pms spell and lurking tension from decisions that need to be made.

but it feels like my progesterone level is ramping back up and normalcy is within reach again.

so hooray!

time to play again.

happy weekend!


long live the 70’s!

Posted in Uncategorized on March 22, 2010 by Sophia

a bereaved b-lite emailed me the other day about alex chilton’s passing.   she was mourning the death of a 70’s icon.

i was born in the 80’s but grew up in the philippines, so it was essentially the 70’s.  disco served as lullaby.  my parents dressed up in floral prints and hip-hugging bell bottoms to take me to the park.  and this cartoon was an afternoon treat:

check out plastic man’s chest-bearing gold-belted red swim superhero suit and white solar shields.  just the perfect outfit to battle the evil clam pirate while showing off his buff physique and sexy hair. 

nothing screams 70’s more than having a crime fighter who looks like a gigolo.

wash ‘n fold

my roommate and i are now proud owners of in-home washer and dryer units, thanks to the heroic efforts of j-ro

this is, by far, the most exciting thing that’s happened to our albion digs in years!

it’s a giant step to living deluxe.  articles like this one actually apply to us now.

next addition: a butler that will do our laundry for us.

it’s friday, bitches!

i don’t know about you, but i’ve had quite a week.

major home events transpired: a stubborn clog in the kitchen sink, washer and dryer installation (fingers crossed!), bedroom renovation, and possible future move to a top-floor unit.

work hasn’t exactly been tranquil either: i’m on the prowl for a new gig, while it’s become clear that i’m going to be passed around by scientists and worked to the bones until my contract ends (which keeps on getting extended).

plus: lil’ bro in town celebrated his 25th (yay!), a couple of unfinished knitting projects to tackle along with a growing to-knit list, social obligations, zip car rentals, delayed but not forgotten projects, and waking up an hour earlier for DST starting this sunday.

oy vey!

well, here’s a tune that momentarily snapped me out of my daze. 

a middle-aged high-ranking scientist was whistling it while walking by my cubicle the other day.  i love accidental life comedies! 

even after a five-hour marathon of brain-numbing data crunching in front of the computer, it elicited a giggle in me and planted my feet back on the ground for a few minutes.

i wonder if he’s seen this video…

have a great weekend, everyone!

the jewish and the sandwich

Posted in Uncategorized on March 11, 2010 by Sophia

i was informed the other night that jews like big sandwiches.

being the curious intellect that god made me, i naturally consulted my all-things-semitic expert, b-lite.  she is of the chosen people after all.

i got this text message the following morning:

“do jews like big sandwiches?  hmmm, i guess so.  like the rueben.  we REALLY like chinese food though!”

well, there you have it, folks.  straight from the mouth of moses’ descendant. 

thank you for joining me on another half-assed tour of global civilizations.  until next time- shalom!

it’s friday, bitches!

my mind is mush.  too many things to think about.  too little down time to process thougts clearly.

so no wonder this tune with its drivel of a chorus has been a broken record in my head this week.

enjoy the weekend!

so fresh and so clean
