Dream 4.29.15

I’ll format this later but I just wanted to post it before I forget. Mind you it was only 15 since I took a nap. Woke up remembering this:

I was working in an open area floor but with still the same coworkers. We had some sort of intertwined bicycle-train-like-chairs where you can sorta stand up on or take a seat. Each day, you can go around it and ride it to give some stress relief or just plain enjoyment to get out of the mundaneness of work. So we were riding this with a few of my coworkers and we would go around the open area that surrounds the work cubicles. Also motivating the guys still working. I was riding in the far back and the guy in front is sorta the one who runs this “train” but other riders can support him/her by using the pedals on each seat. I was just thinking that one of my coworkers S should ride this today because she always like to move around and not stay in her cubicle all day. The guy in front was running the train pretty fast and I had to hold on real tight. I was somewhat holding on to another coworker in front of me but then it was going faster so I had to hold on to the metal bars in front of me. And of course it was better faster so we all helped out pedaling. But then the dude up front did a somewhat sharp turn and tangled up the “cars” of the train and he sorta hopped off. The rest of us were trying to untangle the train cars.

And then I woke up.

Shave of the Year

Shaved 4/3/14, with the help of hubby.
Shaved 4/3/14, with the help of hubby.

Well, here I am, telling you why I shaved my head. When I posted something on my Twitter/FB feed a while back, most people have responded with shock and surprise, and asked questions like, “Why did you do that?!” or “What on earth made you think to shave your hair?!”

I can answer with two words: “Why not?”

I’m not as crazy as what Britney Spears did back in 2007, nor am I going to defend it as in observance to breast cancer awareness or even say it is for Kid’s Cancer Buzz Off fundraising. I must admit, though, that I have made that same excuse about the breast cancer awareness thing, and I was planning to do the buzz off event (which isn’t until May 4th), but I didn’t want to give a false impression or even insult those that have actually done the deed for their cause, and I had no time to do the actual fundraising for the buzz off (though I might try it next year if they are having one, and I would be better prepared).

My pixie-style wig. I've been getting some nice compliments on this one. :)

Why did I do it? Number of reasons (excuses?). I’ve been complaining of the summer heat (years ago) that I want to shave my hair off. I’ve been wanting to shave it for the sake of getting the thinness of the hair thicker as it grows back. I wanted to see if I had any bald spots, because of the same thinness of my hair. I wanted to see what the shape of my head looks like. I wanted to see what I looked like with  no hair. I just wanted to do it, that’s all.

Many may say, “..but all that hair…”, but I’m reassured my hair will grow back, as it has been a couple of weeks already and my hair has grown almost half an inch. My mother told me hair grows an inch a month, so maybe in 6 months or hopefully less than that, my hair will be back to a decent length.

Bob-style wig, but I think it makes me look like Edna Mode from The Incredibles animated movie.

Don’t worry, I have a couple of wigs to use, a bob style and a very short pixie style. My loving husband actually helped me shave my head before I shaved his for his monthly haircut. He really liked my how my shaved head looked and would rather I not use a wig at all.

Of course, I don’t want to shock many people so I use my pixie-cut wig at work on weekdays. I also use a little cap to cover up if I don’t feel like wearing the wig.

There you have it. I hope this explains why I did what I did. I just wanted to. And for the adventure of it! *winks*

Dream 3.10.14

Had another weird dream:

Dani was hunting a cat for breakfast. Not a tiger or a panther, but an actual house cat. She actually stabbed it with a spear and she had a makeshift shield as well.

We seemed to be stranded somewhere like an island. I was with someone but I don’t remember who, and we were watching her.

I shouted at Dani, “What are you doing? You’re going to get breakfast at daycare anyway!”

And then I woke up. Welcome to Spring break! :)

I Miss Sushi

I can’t believe that I haven’t had sushi since the start of my pregnancy. I’m not talking about the California Rolls kind of sushi. I’m talking about raw-fish-in-my-gut sushi. I also miss sashimi. *drool* Soon, though, soon (my precioussss).

I’m losing weight. Whee! I haven’t checked on the scale yet, but I might be down to either 140-150 lbs right now. Try comparing that to my 181-lb goodness before Dani came out into the world. I should lose more weight in the days to come. :)

We have another nickname for Dani: Chipmunk. She makes these little grunting noises when she stretches and Luci remarked that she sounded like a chipmunk. We’ll have to catch her on video one of these days. Stay tuned for that.

Luci’s back at work. It wasn’t really that bad doing stuff on my own. I thought it was even easier without Luci fussing around Dani and I. Dani even slept a good 4 hours with me last night.

Someone emailed me about my I Have Cramps website because she googled around about cramps and thought how funny the site’s name was. Hehe, I love how people react to the name. :)

Anyway, enough of my randomness. Later.

Pope Prophecies?

Wow, a new pope already? I was hoping they would stretch it out a bit. :P

Anyways, I found this in a forum about naming popes and I quote,

“…In my years of religious education, I remember Brother Bob tell me about this prophecy concerning the popes.

He said when the Pope is elected, he is given a secret manuscript that was dictated by Mary, mother of Jesus. He then chooses a name for his reign based on this ‘list of popes.’

Its all a doomesday prophecy.. but after 2,000 years can you imagine what documents are locked away in the Vatican’s library?

But Anyway, after Pope John Paul II passes away, there will be another pope, Pope Benedict XVI then Pope Peter II. There has never been a pope named after the first Peter before, and this signals the end of the Roman Church.

After googling, this is an interesting site on the idea:
The Future and The Popes

I do disagree with him saying that Pope Peter will not mean the end of the world.. well, I think it will not mean the end of the world, but probably the end of the Catholic Church–much as Nostradomas predicts that the Church and its corruption will end…”,


I suggest you check out what the article said. It’s very interesting.

Needlepoint and Strange Conversations

I knew it. I knew the time my mom gave me a needlepoint craft for my birthday I would be addicted to it again. Once I get started on these kinds of projects, it’s hard for me to stop. I remember finishing one big 18×18 cross-stitch project. It took me four months to finish.

I will never tire. I will never wane. I will finish the project no matter what. No matter how my fingers hurt. No matter how I squint through the dim light. No matter how my back hurts from crouching. No matter how many countless hours I’d be at it. I will finish this project. No. Matter. What.

Last night, it took me four hours to calm down from my excitement starting on this project. By that time, Luci had come home and I was ready to sleep at 6:30 AM and get up at 12 noon. *sigh* Crazy schedules.

In other news, Luci and I went to eat at a nearby Burger Station and started talking about philosophy/Christanity/death/pre-destiny mix over a mushroom burger and steak fingers. The grease must have triggered it. Or probably the two toy salesmen and the promoting pizza guy (Who in the hell gives out pizza for a small fee in a burger restaurant?? Odd, I tell you!) that came in a few minutes after we sat down. I’ll probably never know.

Holy Week

It’s weird…usually on this day, back in the Philippines, I would be bored to death at home because most stores/malls would be closed to observe the Holy Week. Also, there would be nothing good to see on TV, because mostly some TV networks would not be airing anything because of Holy Week. Some people wouldn’t be working at all.

And here I am…though I’m not working today, I would be working on the weekend, including Easter Sunday. I liked the old Holy Week tradition, though, because then I can reflect on what Jesus had done for us on that dreadful day where He suffered on the cross and saved us from all our sins. I was a little concerned that I wouldn’t be able to attend an Easter Sunday service, but thankfully, the chapel at the hospital is having one on the time I’m at work.

Happy Resurrection day! He is Risen! :)
