If you'd *seen* the pile of used tissues on the table yesterday, you'd understand why my nose hurt so much...

uh-huh... i've been suffering from a bad cold these last few days... maybe it was due to the rainy weather? It's no fun getting 3 colds in 3 weeks... although this most recent one was certainly the worst!! The other two? I mentioned having caught a mild cold right after Labor Day. Which I passed on to Kosh. Which he then passed back to me at the end of the Cleveland trip. fun. :p

so on the exercise trail - apart from some very low-impact & intensity at home via exercise tapes, haven't done much exercise... certainly didn't have the mood to drag myself to the gym only to have a pile of use tissues piling up as i tried to up my heartrate! bleeeaaaaah at the thought!!

aaaaaaaaaaaaanyway....... on to not-snot tales... 'snot funny!! haha...


First.. here's my stupid score... I like that the quiz kinda messes with your brain in the end.. kinda uses the percentile thingy in reverse, so the lowe the score, the "less stupid" you are.. try it out for yourself :D (sorry, I forgot to whom I need to tip the hat for this one! was it Gibson?)



Here's something for those who may have been doing a good job avoiding someone, but in a moment of distraction answer the phone, only to find [*avoidee*] on the other end... it's called, with a tagline: When you absolutely positively have to get off the phone. They provide lots of suggestions for excuses to get you off that phone... I dunno how often i would need that,but for the rest of y'all in the real world... enjoy...!


Remember I'm a fan of the Rocky Horror Picture Show? Well i stumbled across this link to watching the movie, with bunny actors! teeeheee!! Looks really funny (but I access the 'net in a public place, so I haven't turned the volume on yet, bummer!) Check out the Rocky Horror Picture Show Bunny Show HERE.

It's no longer a ha-ha burning issue, but gas prices will always be something to look out for, especially when one is gonna be doing a lot of travelling between Urbana and St Louis, or later Urbana and Iowa City... So yeah, check out Gas Buddy: it's a very useful resource for those who wanna know where to find cheap gas (and I don't mean the type you get outta yr behind after a dinner of beans!) - punch in yr ZIP code, and tadaaaaaah! This is particularly helpful considering the high gas prices nowadays (valid only for most of the USA & Canada).

Noritta Samsudin: Case closed? WTF?

I was amazed to read that Datuk Mustapha Abdullah, the city police chief considers the Noritta Samsudin murder case closed. (Click here and here for some articles)

In July 2004, one En Hanif Basree Abd Rahman was acquitted and discharged by the court on the murder of Noritta. Of course, the months leading up to that ruling made for gross reading in the local newspapers… Early on I decided to just not read the papers, as it was obvious that the murder victim, who seems to have been a high-class callgirl, was the one being judged. I’m certain I did the right thing, for as time went by, more and more people started complaining about the level of detail being reported by the papers. Details about tears in the vagina, and age thereof seemed to be the focus of the court, rather than on the clients. Then again, from early on it was rumoured that many VIPs were among the victim’s “customers”, hence the blinkered focus on the victim rather than her clients. And the clients who…

BOH Seri Songket flavored teas

For many a year, boxes of BOH's Seri Songket flavored tea have served as handy buah tangans for relatives and friends in Switzerland and the USA, providing exotic teas in an exquisite bit of packaging. I'd not tasted any of these teas for myself, though, so this time around on my trip to Malaysia I made it a point to get me a few boxes of my own.

I picked three: Earl Grey with Tangerine; Passion Fruit; and Lime & Ginger; and have tasted two out of the three so far. According to Moomykin, the unlikely Lychee Rose combination is surprisingly good, so I'll grab that next time. Other flavors available in theory are Cinnamon; Clove & Cardamom; Mango; and Vanilla.

Review of the Seri Songket Passion Fruit flavored tea:
I've had this twice so far.

When you open the sachet, the smell/flavor is rather overpowering. But it all disappears when the teabag is steeped in hot water.

The first time, I used one bag to make 4 cups of tea. It seemed a touch watery, and tasted j…

It's been a while...

It's been so long.

Here's what's been going on. I had one kid, then another. Thing One / Nova was my first ever exposure to a kid. I'd never changed a diaper until he came along, and even then I deferred to the hubs or the NICU nurses before I forced myself to overcome that ?fear?.

He is my first. So I always wondered during tough times, was it just me? Or was it also him?

Turns out, it was us both.

He starts First Grade this August. He's currently being (re-)evaluated for an IEP (Individualised Education Plan). ADHD. ODD. ASD. SPD. The journey to these labels was a long one. And still ongoing because I don't think we have it quite right yet. But the labels help. I fought against getting labels. But now I seek them. Anything to help understand. Never in a million years would I have foreseen me medicating my kids. Yet here I am, seeking new meds, getting him a genetic test that should help identify which medications should help him, since the usual suspects see…
