Wanted to update about a lot of things but nothing interesting is happening. Sometimes I think I have this paid account for nothing. LOL.
I should update my scrapbook and get ready for the "end of year review" post I'll do on Friday! (or Saturday.) Last year's was so much fun!
Started watching Hawaii Five-0. It's delightful! ♥ I love Danny and adore the Danny/Steve dynamic. Also Grace Park, you have the most beautiful smile and Kono is badass. I'm still towards the end of Season 1 so no spoilers please.
I haven't written a single word for 3 weeks (maybe more, not sure), it's bad. I thought I was done with my writer's block. I guess it's not that easy.
Also, I'm reading all of your entries, but too lazy to comment on all, sorry if you think I'm one of your invisible friends, I am not, I promise! I just don't know what to say most of the time. *hugs you all*
People keep asking me what I'm doing for new year's eve and my answer is "nothing, hanging with the family" as usual. It's not like I want to go out and spend it with a bunch of strangers in a stuffed club, but it feels weird after sometime to tell people I have NO PLANS for ANY SPECIAL DAY EVER.
Oh and merry belated Christmas to all! I'm more active on Twitter so I usually forget to celebrate special days on here. Oh LJ, why can't I use you more frequently? Why? I think it's the downtime issue. Hopefully it won't happen again anytime soon. I love LJ and I really don't want to leave here even though I'm barely around as it is.
Holy cow this was unexpected. Pan Am was GREAT. I mean... GREAT as in FLAWLESS. I was already sold in the first few minutes, but then I saw him and screamed with joy.
katayla will probably understand me better since we were probably the only 2 people on LJ who watched Scrubs' last season with the interns.
Whatever, PAN AM is great. Watch it and if
NBC ABC decides to cancel this, I'm going to cut a bitch. Seriously. Plus, I'm really hopeful because I've heard nothing but good stuff about it. YAY!

- Why is the weather still fine and dandy? I want cold, I want rain! LET IT RAIN!
- The Secret Circle is boring, I won't watch it anymore.
- THE OFFICE IS BACK AND I AM SO HAPPY!
- Haven't watched Community yet, but I'm looking forward to it!
- The Vampire Diaries is being awesome in every way except Damon. He is weird.
- I need to lose weight and stop eating junk/fried/baked foods. Starting... soon.
- Going downstairs to have breakfast now.
- Downton Abbey owns my soul.
- How I Met Your Mother's return brought me much joy and excitement.
- The Playboy Club is immensely stupid.
- I seriously felt my blood boil at the office today. It was intense and unpleasant.
- People are really lucky that I didn't get up and just murder someone.
- I had an annoying headache all day and my boiling blood didn't help at all.
- I now know how it feels to unreasonably hate someone and I don't like it one bit.
- It's not even a love-hate situation. It's pure hate.
- I'll go to the hospital with mom tomorrow, just to accompany her. Nothing serious, it's just she doesn't want to go to the doctor alone anymore, I think she's getting older.
- But if there's something more serious that she's not telling me, then I probably won't think twice before cutting a bitch.
- Tell me where I can find pretty Downton Abbey icons.
>> Also I started using the navigation strip. It used to be so hideous and useless, and I hid it everytime I'm customizing my layout, but now I really like it!
>> First 2 books of "A Song of Ice and Fire" series have arrived today. I'll skip the 1st one since Game of Thrones season 1 pretty much covered everything and start with the 2nd one right away. I began reading A Clash of Kings in my iphone but mobile solutions are really useless when it comes to such a huge, thick, detailed book. Hopefully I'll finish it by the time 2nd season starts. People are reading the last book and gushing over it, but look at me, a poor soul still trying to get through the 2nd one, LOL! I'm spoiled for the whole series, so no problemo, I'll just read for the details.
>> I am also reading Dan Brown's "The Lost Symbol" and even though I keep telling everyone how "formulaic" his books are, he never fails to keep me interested. I'm planning on finishing it during the week and start A Clash of Kings as soon as possible.
>> I am bored.
>> Oh and one last thing, Sirens is an awesome TV show, give it a chance. I started watching it only for Richard Madden's flawfree face, but I got hooked. Latest episode was the best of all actually and I'm kinda sad it's only 6 episodes. Ugh British TV, y u no make your seasons longer?
» I've bought the plane tickets for our vacation next month and guess what, mom immediately asked me if we can change the date on her return ticket. NO MOM, WE CAN'T, THEY WERE THE CHEAPEST DEAL TICKETS I COULD FIND AND YOU CAN'T CHANGE IT. Every.single.time I do something regarding planning or buying for something we'll do together, she does this. She always has some other plans that will complicate the already made plan which stresses me out more that I can handle.
» My right arm is aching. I know it's stress related so I'm trying to relax, but since I don't know what's stressing me out this much, I fail. I am hopelessly trying to find a comfortable position to sit, but nothing works. Plus I woke up with a headache today so I'm hoping the painkiller I took a few minutes ago will solve both of my physical problems.
» Watched Cougar Town season finale last night and it was AMAZING. ( Couple of spoilery stuff... )
» The woman in the next office is talking too loudly. I am this close to barging in there and choking her.
» Happy Endings is awesome! Mostly Eliza Coupe is awesome than any other. The only thing that left me sad about the end of Scrubs was her absence on my screen, but now I can be happy again.
» Mom asked me if I wanted to extend my vacation to 2 weeks and I said no, because I seriously cannot handle a 2 week long family vacation, but I told her I can't take 2 consecutive weeks off from work. I love them all, but we're not that compatible when we are kept in a strange place too long. No, no, no and no.
» I wish people would just let me be today, but then I get sad because I get too lonely. I can never win. I want to punch something, but instead, I will use these gifs to express my current emotional status.
★ Been listening to Adele's Hiding My Heart for a couple of days and it's not doing me any good. I'm a bit disappointed in myself on the heart and feelings department and I've been feeling a little lonely for a while, so listening to Adele is like going on a suicidal mission willingly.
★ Another disappointment I had this week was the Bones season finale. ( Rest of this paragraph might still be spoilery for some of you, so I'll cut right here. )
★ How awesome is Game of Thrones? I love how it's critically acclaimed and epic and all that jazz. Of course it is, because it's not tv, it's HBO.
★ Remember the time I told you I was gonna start looking for another job? Hah. I'm doing NOTHING about it. Well, for my defense, there have been some major organizational changes in the company and now our department is a research and development unit which is awesome and means more money, so I'm hoping to get a piece of that pie.
★ Speaking of pie, I've gained so much weight it's insane. A coworker asked me if I gained weight before she said good morning (rude much?), so I take it as an emergency and start dieting. I'm not gonna starve myself, but I am also aware that I have been eating A LOT OF junk food and pastries lately. I quit. And I gotta start swimming. Summer is here. As soon as they put the sunbeds by the pool, I am there. I already have a natural lifesaver around my belly from eating too much cake. HA HA HA, not funny at all. I hate it. It feels like I have passed my prime and slowly falling into a pit of belly fat and boring days. I'm not obsessed with physical appearance, but I remember myself being all thin, fit and energetic and my current situation feels like shit to be honest. I need to change my ways and losing some of this weight will surely make me feel a bit better. Hopefully.
★ I believe I have sufficiently made your day a little bit more depressing, so mission accomplished. See you at my next post which will probably happen at a distant time in the future.
I can't be happier on the TV front. This year has been really good so far.
Oh except Camelot. I can't seem to be interested in anyone over there. Everyone is either completely clueless, crazy or cruel. I don't like. I'll watch the latest episode and if that doesn't do it for me I'm out for good.
My work load is lighter! Hooray! I haven't done ANYTHING today and actually got away with it! REJOICE! :D
Got a haircut 2 weeks ago, but I'm too lazy to make it pretty every morning. I'm starting to regret that decision, but keeping it short gives me so much extra time during showers so I'll just shut up and go with the flow.
Everyone's catching a cold lately. I'm still in the safe zone, but afraid it won't last long. We're having really weird weather out here. It's rainy, cold, warm, humid, freezing, windy at the same time. I'm not even kidding. It's strange. It was really cold this morning so I said "what the hell!" and wore my turtleneck and the it suddenly got really hot and I was walking around with a black turtleneck like a stupid person. It's time to switch to "cardigans over t-shirts" phase.
Life's pretty boring in general. I'm planning or arranging a little get together with a couple of friends from college, but I'm too lazy to call people up and learn their schedules. I always end up making the plans and suffering from the consequences later, so I'm waiting for them to arrange stuff, but let's be honest, it'll never happen. *le sigh*
What should I watch now? I'm done with the 1st season of Shameless. Loved it towards the end. Looking forward to the new season next year. Also downloaded The Crimson Petal and The White just for Romola Garai. Is it any good?
I really want a Game of Thrones mood theme. I shall go back to my Legend of the Seeker set until someone decides to make a GoT one.
I had my long awaited ultrasound today and guess what, THE STONE IS STILL IN THE EXACT SAME PLACE!
My exact reaction when the doctor showed me the god damned stone:
On the brighter side, it seems like it's not gonna move anytime soon and it got smaller somehow. I will continue drinking all sorts of juices and herbal teas to make it go away. AT LEAST IT DOESN'T HURT. But the idea of it still being there makes me uncomfortable. Dad told me to forget about it, so I'll try... until next time it hurts like a bitch and I have to be tied to the bed. Yes. Case closed. Dismissed. Overruled. Whatever.
SO YES, I HAVE BEEN WATCHING THE GOOD WIFE! IT IS GOOOOOOOOOD. Very very good. I'm still on Season 1, because it takes forever to finish the episodes! FEELS LIKE 2 HOURS INSTEAD OF 42 MINUTES! WHAT'S UP WITH THAT? Not that I'm complaining, but still! WEIRD!
And Vampire Diaries is back, wohoo! Yesterday's episode was pretty good, but not "HOLY SHIT" worthy.
On a completely unrelated note: I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO WRITE. I've been so lazy this past MONTH, it's insane. It's like I am out of writing juice. My brain can't focus on one idea and keep going with it and it's driving me crazy. To be honest it's mostly making me sad, but crazy part is still in there.
So yeah, I might just suck it up and try to write something, anything for the sake of writing, because I feel like if I stop writing, I have nothing better to do in life. Sounds a little depressed, doesn't it? Yeah, you got it.
Of course whenever modern medicine falls short on giving answers, we turn our faces to herbs and vegetables. Today I started taking herbal pills, Gilaburu juice and golden herb tea. I will be pumped with so much antioxidant by the end of next week, I might become immortal in the process. FINGERS CROSSED!
Also, I'm trying to drink a lot of water, but despite my best efforts, I can't drink more than 2 liters (which is approximately half a gallon) without wanting puke my soul out. FAIL. I might stop drinking water altogether after I get over this tiny stone incident. My mom hates drinking water and I could never understand her feelings towards the tastless, colorless life substance, but now I know. I know mother, I know how awful it is. I will never ever tease you about it ever again!
On a completely different note: how many of you think Firefox 4 sucks meatballs? Because I do. I would rollback to 3-point-whatever if I wasn't so lazy.
In other news;
- I finished 3 seasons of Sabrina the Teenage Witch in 3 days which was awesome when I wasn't jumping up and down in pain. I remembered how much I missed that universe ♥
- Started watching The Good Wife. Done with 2 episodes for now and I liked it! :D
That's pretty much it. I have a nagging little ache on the left side of my back at the moment, but I'm ignoring it.
Also, I've been away from work for 3 days and it was awesome... when I wasn't jumping up and down in pain. Although it wasn't the vacation I dreamt about, it is still okay. I'm going back to my usual workload on Monday and hoping not to have any terrible kidney pain attack during the day. My worst nightmare is finding myself jumping up and down in pain in front of everyone. I simply cannot do it.
Yup, that's it.
You've been doing such an amazing job with tv shows lately. Kudos, my friend.
Sincerely, your humble TV fan.
Aside from Downton Abbey, there have been some stuff that made me truly sad, but it's not the place and time to share. I just wish everyone to be healthy and happy around me, that's all. I've received so many bad news lately, it's starting to become a regular thing and I'm afraid.
