  • ADVENTURES WITH A (DYING) DOG

    1.21.15-I-Took-My-Dying-Dog-on-a-Bucket-List-Adventure1-590x442

    This one made me weepy this morning. Girl finds out her bestfriend and roommate -- a 160-lb English Mastiff has terminal bone cancer and only has a few months to live. So armed with a bucket list of adventures she would like to share with her dog, they go off on canoe rides, road trips, visits to both busy spots and quiet spaces and, finally, spend a last day together by the ocean in Maine, where she finally finds peace and acceptance. This is real love, people.
  • THE HEALING POWERS OF KEEPING A JOURNAL

    N-JOURNALING-large570

    I still keep a journal despite having a blog. No matter how spill-all-my-guts-out open I may seem, there are many things I do and think that I'll just never tell. I've always thought it kept me sane to be able to express myself without fear of being censored or criticized. Whenever I pick up an old journal, even one from my 13-year-old self I realize that as much as I've changed so much is still the same. I just know how to dodge bullets faster and better.

  • WRITING YOUR WAY TO HAPPINESS

    20WELL-articleLarge

    Which is why I've decided to keep this blog around, at least for a little while longer. I've always picked up a pen (or sat in front of a keyboard) any time I needed to make sense of my world; writing allows me to get into my head and get all my thoughts out without having to worry about how ridiculous I sound (that's where the editing comes in).

  • HOW TO BECOME A WRITER
    This was lovely. The post is by a novelist who was asked how to encourage a young writer. It sounds eerily like the story of my life -- now all I need is to keep reading and keep writing (and, okay, start submitting). From: M Molly Backes' blog, 07/12/11
  • THE "PERFECT" FEMALE BODY

    Greatist_body

    Every day at work I see all kinds of female bodies: athletic, boyish, curvy, voluptuous, natural, enhanced, preteen, post-baby, postmenopausal -- thousands of different bodies I've seen up close and personal in my lifetime. This infographic shows that the description of the ideal female body changes every decade or so, going back hundreds of years. I hope that soon we define the "perfect" body as one that is simply healthy and functioning; that what matters is that we're comfortable in our own skin. From: Greatist, 01/15/15

Baba

try www.bigstring.com - recallable email... best! ;-)

Nostalgia Manila

Hey there Gigi! I wanted to let you know about something real exciting called Nostalgia Manila Free TV! Watch full-length DVD quality videos of some of your favorite shows! I think you'd love this episode of The Smurfs! Check it out!

Shari

Haha, that was both amusing and a bit scary. I'm like you; email's the most convenient way to reach me too.

joe

hi gigi! have you heard about donotcall.gov? just register your phone #s including celfones and voila...no hassles from telemarketers for 5 years. hope this helps.

Gigi

Baba - Bigstring? I'm SO there! Thanks for the tip. :)

NM - Can you believe I've NEVER watched an episode of the Smurfs???

Shari - How embarrassing for her 'no? But the funny thing is how the guy's name managed to stay so pure after the whole thing. It turns out that they've known each other for 10 years or something, and have exchanged emails before! Apparently, he doesn't know how to delete his mail. :)

Joe - I registered when they first announced it (and again after the telemarketing industry failed to stop this from happening). Unfortunately, the law doesn't cover companies I've dealt with before. So they call and call and call. Oh and I HATE those automated ones from politicians, too...so annoying. But most of all, the ones I get from the PHILIPPINES that want to sell me property. They're not covered under the law because they're foreign-originated -- and they're persistent. Grrrr...

hi, gigi. this is funny. reminded me of those instances when people accidentally sent text messages to the wrong people. i once received an endearing text message from a boss to his no.2 who happened to be the secretary. i sent him back the message and added "ANO ITO?" he managed a shy smile and texted me again - "Wrong send." he he

K

Reminds me of myself in the office. I mistakenly sent my personal email supposedly for a friend, to my boss. Our office email is strictly for office use and eventually she found out that "when the cat is out, the mice will play", it almost made me sign a coaching and counselling for doing such a stupid mistake.

I certainly don't answer my cellphone unless they send me text first then i just hit re-dial. Canned-text messages are simply annoying.

Jayred

The wife surely has a way with words. LOL

One should really be on guard when e-mailing people. Our e-mails are so 'forwardable.'

Gigi

Bingskee - Suwerte ng boss mo, hindi mo na-blackmail!

K - Eeeks! But yeah, who hasn't sent email to the wrong person before (or the wrong email to the right person for that matter)?

Jayred - Not only forwardable, but "hack-able" pa! I can think of a bunch of folks who were caught by their spouses/significant others (who more often than not work in computer-related fields) for sending or receiving naughty emails.
