Promtly Not

It's this time of the year again when tasks are ought to be done, yet here I am actively NOT doing it. It just seems like too much effort to concentrate on it. I am sure I'll come through the last minute of the home stretch, but on the other hand, I'm driving myself loco by not doing it right now. I'd rather be doing something else. There is no cure for this angst, you just get to ride it out and hope it passes. Passes without much damage on its wake I guess. Is this called procrastination or laziness? I am not sure; only that it's very annoying to me.

What Other TV Series Out There?

I used to think it's a total waste of time to watch TV. I cannot fathom why anyone would pick TV if they can pick a good book instead? But then, I forgot to factor in the era I grew up in. We only have two channels. Channel 12 and Channel 5. It also seem like majority of the time, they're showing The 700 Club. It's the most boring show ever, and I turned to books. Then, I accidentally watched an episode of HOUSE, MD. Wow! That's how people get sucked into movies. They stumble into fabulous series.

So, any body out there...tell me which TV series I should watch next. I've watched LOST, ALIAS, MONK, and the CSIs. Any recommendation?

$ 8 Complete Prescription Eyeglasses+ Case

Once again we need glasses. I didn’t know you have to buy children glasses, but for some reason, they need to see. Of course, the moment you give them their glasses, they melt into the Twilight Zone and five months later, their school is complaining again that the child can’t see. Well, I’m not into getting them top of the line pricey glasses when they’re just going to be used for one day, so the ideal way to buy them is online. is a place which doesn’t even advertise (good). They have a huge selection of frames, with single vision lens, tinted sunglasses lens, bifocal lens and that sort of thing. Zenni Optical: Sell Rx Glasses $8 with case!. They sell only their own manufactured frames direct to the customer, with no middlemen and virtually no advertising budget. I need a six pack of them.

War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy, Part 1

I joined this book reader's group where I am supposed to read 4 Russian novels in 2008. As I was trying to decided which Russian novels to read, I was struck by how many where so thick. Thick, I tell you! I have also noticed that I am only noticing Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky. I haven't really paid attention to Russian novels because in school project, I'd offer to read 3 non-Russian novels just so I can escape reading those very big and hearty tomes. So here I am now, 34-years old, about to embark on my first Russian novel journey. I decided to start with War and Peace. I am reading the first 10 pages, and they're at a party. It takes getting used to, but I noticed that this Tolstoy guy can write. I can picture the party. The host, I forgot her name, she's not really a major character, is disgruntled with the 'little man with big ambition.' Aha! It' set somewhere during Napoleon's wars. I am enjoying it between bouts of erotic paranormal like JR Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood series, and Tara Janzen's Steel Street hunkies.

I have decided that I will chronicle this War and Peace Journey. I will blog as I read along. I am sure there's not a single iota that wasn't discussed in this book. It's alright, because I haven't read those discussion. I can start bumbling on my own, thank you very much.

Webbyplanet - The New Name for Coupons

Every good housewives know that when it's available, then it must be used. I'm talking about coupon. Here's a new site where they have tons of coupons available for use. They have bookstore coupons if you're into books among other things. They have coupons for name brand clothing. I saw a Baby Phat coupon available right now. Like I said, Webbyplanet could very well be the new name for coupons.

Video Illiterate

There's this juicy ops at payperpost right now. All I have to do is make a video grilling chicken. I can grill chicken, but I don't understand video format like: miniDV, BETA SP or MP4. I mean, where do I push the button to make files like that?

This really just emphasize how much of a dinosaur I am turning out to be. I need to learn video formats...and I can even Google it. So, if you happen to know anything about this, please, feel free to let me know coz it would really help. Thank you.

Refinance while rates are low!

Well, we all know that the interest rates are going bonkers.

The trick is this, if you can afford to pay more, fine, you may in fact be better off doing nothing.

But think of an interest rate refinance like getting some insurance, once you lock in your rate, if that’s what you want to do, then you don’t have to worry. With the American dollar dropping through the floor by 30 or 40 per cent compared to the rest of the world, I’m actually shocked the interest rates are still in single digits.

The best way to refinance, if that’s what you want to do, is to use a venue that has more than one option, more than one competitor ‘competing’ for your business.

Otherwise, just tilt your head back and ask Dracula to take a bite.

One of those kinds of sites is You can let lenders compete to provide you with the best refinancing rate that fits your needs. If you're from Florida, there's Florida Refinance. Whether you are considering a fixed or adjustable rate mortgage, they can help you find more options at no obligation. At least you can compare the alternatives.

Don't Junk It

I have this new thing. I used to hear and listen to reviews about certain shows. I'd missed out on a lot of shows because people around me didn't like the show. Then lately, I decided to at least try and decide for myself. It's suprising to find out that I like most of the shows that was given bad review.

Reviews are a good thing, but it should get in the way of enjoying movies and shows just because the critics hated it. That said, I am not sure I want to see IN THE NAME OF THE KING. It's Jason Statham, and I like him. On the other hand...look at this particular review below. I might just really wait for the DVD to come out.

Geatest Spoof Ever!
by murielroma (movies profile) Jan 12, 2008
3 of 5 people found this review helpful

I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. I admit that during the first 20 minutes I was shocked at how bad the movie was, but after the intial shock I couldn't help laughing out loud. Soon half the thearter was laughing - that is half of the people that didn't walk out. Too bad they left. I wasn't the only one that was in histarics long after the movie was over.

So the movie is basically a spoof on "Lord of the Rings" and "Braveheart" though there are elements from other movies such as "Crouching Tiger" and "The Matrix". The spoof was most likely unintentional which only made it so much more hillarious.

One thing that I cannot pass over is that this movie forgot to give any history or motives to the characters and why they why they were the way they were (hopefully becuase they're saving that for the prequel!!!) The true genius of the writers comes out however in leaving soooo many loose ends. All I can say is we're going to need tons of sequels to tie everything together and that couldn't make me happier! Now that I think about it the forced dialogue was what the writers should be most honored for. Star Wars can't touch some of the lines in this movie.

I will not devulge any more so as not to ruin the movie which is a must see. I am already planning on going back to see it again very soon!!!!!! - A Free Consumer Resource

Let Me Tell You

I just want to say how much I love my wife. I feel like I'm in the worst part of Iraq or something, all the other marriages are bombing with infidelity or cruel comments, terrible lack of respect. My wife works harder, takes responsibility for everything, and then turns around and acts like I am the one doing all that she does.

Every time I think I've discovered someone else with the worst marriage possible, I find yet another couple - hate to use the word for them - who have found yet a further new dimension to make marriage a living hell.

I don't know, perhaps I am in heaven, but I don't know how I got so lucky or to be favored by G-d to have a woman doing everything for everybody, dedicated, and then turning around and giving me credit for it.

The Miracle That Is Oxy-Powder Colon Cleanser

Recently I was reading about free radicals, dangerous Oxygen molecules that roam the body causing damage to the organs, effectively being the main reason people age. Anti-Oxidents are food or vitamins which you can take which binds to these dangerous Oxygen molecules and help rid your body of them. Well, imagine my surprise when I read that they have a product that helps rid the body of Oxygen through colon cleansing. Oxy-Powder Colon Cleansing is made of a special ingredient that helps find the Oxygen in your body and 'clean' your body of those Oxygen free radicals. If you have problems with constipation, or perhaps even odors or the like, without the negative results common with laxatives I recommend you read the information on the product.

Wordless Wednesday

Or not so wordless.

I like taking picture of the sky. This image is taken from my cell phone camera. There's just something about the sky that's so fascinating. No two pictures are alike. Of course, not counting the fact of having a fast camera and taking multiple shots at it. I'm always happy when I see the sunrise. Usually, I would sleep right through it. I am a night owl.

August Rush, The Movie

Once in a while, I go to see a movie without reading the previews, except to check how many stars yahoo users gave it. This movie, August Rush is one of them. I went to see this with two other member of my family. This movie did not disappoint at all. It's about an orphan looking for his parents by following the music. There's a side story of the parents who are both musical and so star-crossed, it makes your heart ache. Jonathan Rhys-Meyers is so very yummy in this movie. Noticed the excessive use of superlatives here. Robin Williams did a great job managing orphans like that guy in Oliver! It reminds me so much of that movie, I kept expecting Freddie Highmore to break out into "Please sir, may I have some more?"

Visit Park West Gallery

I like looking at arts. I think it's because I can't draw. When I look at arts, I want to know more about the person who created these arts. Park West Gallery have artist biography section, and these artists have works available on the galleries.

Lover Eternal by JR Ward

I started this series a few weeks ago. At first, I was cringing with the names like Phury, and Rhevenge and Tohrment and Rhage, etc. In fact, I still cringe over it, but not enough to ditch the series because behind the weird names is a well-crafted books.

I like how the roles have change on vampire. Yeah they such blood, but they're not like rabid dogs who pass on the condition. I like that. Then the enemies of the vampire called Lesser are like mean albinos (no offense to Albinos intended, of course), but that's how they're made. The kept their hearts in a jar, and they become eunuch.

See what a mean when I said the roles have change? This is not your regular vampire books. I can see a little similarity with Sherrilyn Kenyon's vampire books. I'm caught up with her series, so it's really nice to find another series to read. I wonder if there's anymore out there.

Online Used Car Listings

I've been in the market to buy a used truck.

I know what I want, I want to buy a Ranger with less
than 60,000 miles on it and under 6 years old.

In the old days, when there were such things as record
players, I would wait early in the morning and get the
first paper I could find, then circle in ink the used
vehicles which fit my needs.

Now, with the internet, things are so much easier and
free. Not only that, I don't have to throw out the
old newspaper that I used.

The way to buy a car is to go to BuyYourCar on the
internet, Used Cars site offers great advice on how to avoid being
scammed. Last thing I can afford is to be scammed.

The site is very easy and very fast. You select your
particulars, if you want, such as brand (Ford) model
(Ranger) year, and minimum and maximum prices you want
to look at.

They also have a place for you to put your postal code
so you can limit the cars you want to look at to
something that is not far away. I've always thought
of it as a paradox to have to go too far to get to buy
a car, when that is your problem in the first place,
not having a car.

At any rate, check it out, you don't actually have to
buy anything, and you might just window shop and find
something that is a great price, better than you might
have thought.

Or, if you want, sell that extra car you have through
the site and get back that extra parking space.
