A Tale of Two Ladies

The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.

Audrey Hepburn

There's two kinds of girls I'm going to talk about today

One is my sassy, articulate friend from college and who I can best describe as a such sweet and uhm, sometimes sour cinnamoroll(and in case you're reading this bear with me for a minute) that I sometimes call her Dearie.

Okay, so she's mostly Sweet, maybe I should just call her Fierce


Dearie you know you've got my Christmas and birthday gifts ahead of time so there's really nothing more for me to say except


happy birthday 

Yeah, kinda lame I know. But you get the message. Anyway, enjoy your day and remember commercial photography locations

Somebody Made me delete this post.

Think about the odds of them seeing it, since this is a post/url shared privately between buddies.

Maybe they were meant to see it?

The World is so Cold.

I'm cold. There's no point in us both being cold. Give me your coat. Give me your coat...

12th Doctor, "Deep Breath" 8x01.

It's supposed to be early FALL and I'm already freezing like it's WINTER! snowflake I can't even take a hot shower in the morning 'cause it's still too darn cold after the shower. I have to wait till the afternoon but wait, it's still too darn cold! I have to put the heater on or wrap myself in an extra towel to avoid the chilly air.

I guess it wasn't too long ago, I was bitching about being getting the weather too darn hot. I guess there's really no middle ground.

Or is there? I seem to recall experiencing sunshiny afternoons with a light, cool breeze. Nothing too hot or too cold. Hmmm...

dog lying down

Oh well, can't always get what you want.

Speaking of cold, the World really is COLD.

Not that we need reminding but looking at my social media news feed, there's a bit of violence in Catalonia, some more violence in Mandalay Bay, Vegas, oh and continued violence in parts of the Philippines and other countries.

Oh and there's Cuba wanting a bit of attention away from North Korea with "acoustic warfare".

Just a little news to keep us feeling on our toes cheerful

Hey at least, Twitter doubled their character limit from 140 to 280. More space to vent, grumble and spew retarded shit for the masses. Any longer and netizens might as well go back to blogging like me writing

On a second thought, please don't extend it again. I like having the blogosphere relatively drama free with every one else having migrated to hyped up social media accounts

To be fair, I'm sure Twitter's (& Tumblr, Facebook next on the list of shitty sm sites) only exists nowadays to provide entertainment. I mean, look at all the gems to come out of that site, in particular the most recent one:

Bears get roasted by Butterfinger on Twitter during 'Thursday Night Football'

If you haven't heard of this yet, go ahead click the link. The original Twitter thread is still up and it's comedy goldhahaha

Tweets like this and stupid shit are practically the only reasons I have a Twitter account I barely use. So I won't judge if you have one but do keep your head above the water 'cause all that retarded shit gets to you.

See? Another day in paradise on this planet called Earthearth

Hey, it's International Coffee Day! cup gif

Too bad I don't drink coffee. I'm more of a tea and smoothies person. But guess what? It's not even FREE.

It's a FREE WITH PURCHASE thing. You know, the kind where you actually have to make a purchase off the menu and then they give you a small cup regular brew or iced latte. Yup.

If you're a coffee drinker and you still wanna go for it, no one's stopping you. I happened to just have International Coffee Day on the mind since my parents are both usually coffee addicts who've had to cut back recently, so I'm sharing this handy list found on the web today.

Speaking of hot coffee, this is the perfect weather, I mean, season, for a hot cuppa. It has been COLD lately! I feel like it was just a couple of weeks ago that I started having to wear coats and denim jackets. I still wear short sleeve shirts underneath but I feel like I'll have to break out the cold weather clothes soon.winter beanie

Won't be long before we all have to start turning the clock back for those of you, unfortunately fall on Daylight Savings Time, like I do.

At least everyone's getting ready, especially the stores. All the rear shelves already stocked with Christmas merchandise

Hah. If this was the Philippines, Christmas stuff would be up front as early as September. It's not surprising. The country is literally the only majority Christian/Catholic nation in Southeast Asia, making its citizens highly religious. Christmas is literally the only holiday Filipinos celebrate wholeheartedly.

And if you've ever been to the Philippines, you wouldn't, shouldn't dare knock on the precious few joys Filipinos have. Almost everyone who knows the Philippines knows that the country's citizens literally and figuratively live in a freaking stormageddon every day.

Why Stormageddon? You ask.

Well, once Hurricane season starts winding down/ends on this side of the Pacific. The Northwest Pacific starts bracing itself for therain pixeltypically occurring around October-November months. It's a weather disturbance similar to Hurricane known as a TYPHOON to countries in the area.

It doesn't help that the Philippines characteristic plan of action everytime a typhoon hits is this:

It's also the same plan during and after the typhoon.

I'm tempted to make a joke that Puerto Rico & the Philippines are imperial siblings, after all. Wait, I already said it.

At least, Puerto Rico has the Feds to send aid while the Philippines has, oh wait...

But I digressed. Now that you have a pretty good idea of where the Philippines is standing internationally, take heart that some things are made better by this guy:

President Rodrigo Duterte on Thursday changed his rhetoric against the United States, saying this time that he'd "rather be friendly to them now." At an event in Eastern Samar to commemorate the 116th Balangiga Encounter Day, Duterte said the Americans, which he has lambasted many times in the past, have "redeemed themselves a lot."..

Did I say better? Oops.

Yeah, I'm sure Americans are relieved that Duterte is BFFs with them now. Once Trump is done visiting in November and the Typhoon season is over, they remain best budsHug hearts

Smart man, that guy.

Tanghali na, Tulog pa ang Pilipinas

Dear Philippines

I don't know if you've ever noticed this but



Literally 9 out of 10 of those products from just these 3 samples are all imported or manufactured by Thailand.

O baka hindi ako nainitindihan. Heto ang ibig sabihin ng 'Eating Someone's Lunch'

Eating someone's lunch generally refers to defeating or outwitting an opponent. In the business world, it describes situations where one company outperforms another and earns a larger market share. Read more: Eating Someone's Lunch

Tanghali na, Juan. Nakakain na ang lahat. Hoy Gising!
