  • 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

Michael

Happy New Year Gigi! =)

Gigi

Hi Michael - Hope your new year began with a bang (in a good way, of course)! Wishing you the best of everything in 2007. :)

nunu's mum

Happy happy New Year Gigi! Hope yours went with a bang!

John Cusack eh? BB likes him, in that he's-a-cool-actor/guy in the same vein as Ed Norton kinda way. My John Cusack is Ewan McGregor. Eversince Trainspotting. Gawsh, just the mere sight of him on telly makes me blush. I know he hasn't got the best set of hollywood teeth but I guess it's the fact that he doesn't stink of hollywood perfection that makes him so appealing to me. He is FUNNY, wicked Brit humour. Yes, he's made some dodgy films lately but I forgive him time & time again. And you know what it is really? He's still SO BESOTTED with his lovely french wife after 2 kids & soo many years. Wouldn't dream of being unfaithful, and I find that the sexiest thing...wouldn't you?

But nope, got no discovery channel so Bear Grylls is safe with you for now...=)

Anna

Hm. Myself, I go for Pierce Brosnan, Patrick Stewart (I'm a Trekker) and the latest addition to my list is Daniel Craig. Orlando Bloom only as Legolas, he doesn't float my boat as a brunette. Hm. Never really noticed, but they're all Brits. Have yet to watch your show but imagining myself in the wild.... nah, I'll curl up on my couch with a good steamy book instead.

Gigi

hi Nunu's mum - OK, Ewan McGregor I definitely get!I think Renee Zellweger recently said in an interview she was going to make it part of her contracts that Ewan always has to be in her movies. Based on that '60s movie they did, I don't know if that's a bad or good thing (depends on this Beatrix Potter one, eh?)but she's one smart cookie for saying so! PS you can catch a bit of my Bear on his website -- but don't watch just yet because they're currently showing a snippet of that pee-in-a-tee thing he did. :)

Hey Anna - Now I know you're a true-blue Trekker (because you didn't say the dreaded "Trekkie."). And I, too, love Patrick Stewart! When I told my husband while we were still dating that my friends and I had a vigil for Gene Roddenberry at my apartment when he passed away, I swear he thought twice about sticking around.

Really? You like Orlando better as a blonde? But he was dreamy in LOTR for sure...

Olive

oh yes...that guy is H-O-T!!! D had to call my attention a couple of times because i was too focused watching him. YUMMEE!!!

Gigi

Hi Olive - Tumawag daw si D kay A kanina -- let's get together daw soon. O sige ba!!! Let's chat on yahoo soon and plan, OK? Miss ko na kayo.

Jayred

I like John Cusack! Didn't know he was once linked with Catherine Zeta Jones.

The new guy looks cool. Too bad we don't have Discovery Channel here in my area.

Happy New Year, Gigi. Wishing you all the best in 2007.

Gigi

Hi Jayred - Yep, "my" John's been linked to so many women (sigh). Anyway a friend of mine had lunch with him once (long story but he was with Benny "the Jet," who is a good friend of Cusack's. He happened to visit the set Benny was working on with my friend, and the three of them had a casual lunch together). Friend said John was tall, very nice, no pretensions, cool. He couldn't tell me if he was cute, because guys supposedly don't do that. Oh well.

Anyway, funny thing is I finally confessed to my husband that I now have a "thing" for Bear and for the first time ever, the hubby didn't say anything bad about the guy. I think he actually understood! :)

shira

gigi-

you are hilarious! me and my friend just watched a marathon of "man vs wild" this past friday night and i kept thinking he is the craziest man on earth, why am i watching this show. but your right, you can't stop watching it. it is absolutely riveting. i don't know if he is my fantasy guy, i think i would stick with john cusack. he may not be able to handle himself in the wild but think of the witty conversations you would have.

Gigi

Hi Shira - I know, you're probably right. I was thinking the same thing but...
DID YOU SEE THE EPISODE WHERE HE TEARS OFF HIS CLOTHES AND IS BUTT-NEKKID???

  • LISTEN: "Pluto" by Chamsom

    Boong-

    I don't have to understand Korean to love this song, although I think it's about a person who was in a rocky relationship that ended but still feels deeply for her former lover and is feeling lonely tonight. "You're like a little star that's far away from me and keeps disappearing." I suppose the title -- Pluto used to be known as the ninth planet from the sun but now isn't even considered one -- might provide a bit more context to the song's meaning. Spotify
