Season 1 of the Game of Thrones is already done. For those who are unfamiliar with it, Game of Thrones is an HBO series adapted from the book series A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin. The TV series is a big hit even if it’s only on cable TV. I do think that the combination of great story, blood and gore plus sex provided enough lure for TV viewers to watch and follow the series.
On my part, I actually followed the series because I am reading the books and was truly drawn to the story line. Plus it helped a lot that the TV series had Jason Momoa cast as Khal Drogo. Had me swooning every time he appeared on the small screen!
Are you a fan of the Game of Thrones like me?
Cousin Rina is easily bored. She just couldn’t abide sitting idly. She needs something to do all the time. But she is also not the type of person who can spend hours on Facebook and Twitter waiting for updates from the people whom she interacts with. She needs something specific to do while online if ever. So I told her this… how about Online Bingo Games to keep you occupied and not bored when you have nothing else to do? She perked up and seemed interested when I told her my suggestion. Rina is specially bored these days because she is in between jobs. She will be starting work in three weeks so for now she is stuck at home when she is not meeting up with friends. The first question that she asked me was is it the same as the bingo game when we were younger? I told her it is a bit different considering that it is now played online whereas before we need to gather around a bingo hall or a specific place and would need to wait for the bingo master to call out the numbers. It is equally fun and both the online and offline game espouses community which is what I like about the game.
You might find it cheesy but I do have a soft spot for games of my youth. Those games I indulged in when I was trying to fit in the world of the adults around me. I am the eldest and I was always with the oldies. Rina was much younger than me so she didn’t witness those days when two older cousins and I would join the oldies in the family play bingo card games at the gram’s house. Those were the days… nowadays, just boot up your computer, connect to the internet and you can easily play bingo!
I am sure you have either watched Breaking Dawn part 1 already or you are planning to catch it before its run in the cinemas end. As for me, my friend and I will go catch it this weekend.
To be honest with you, I am not really excited about the movie. I am excited about seeing my friends, though. The Twilight Saga movie franchise made a joke out of the Stephenie Meyer books I don’t even know what was going through Stephenie’s mind she let the scriptwriter massacre her book series! If you are a huge fan of the Twilight book, you know what I am talking about.
Anyway, so I saw this article by Jessica Zafra in her column in InterAksyon.com and I’d like to share it with you. I am not going to post the article here but will just direct you to the column itself: Twilight – Breaking Wind. Read it! It’s so funny if you feel the same way towards the massacre of the movie you’d totally agree with her observations.
I am still looking for that movie that will make me go WOW! After Inception, there isn’t one that made me feel like that. Of course, the last Harry Potter movie is not included in this. How great the movie would be was already a given even before I saw it. I didn’t know how good Inception was until I was seated in the cinema. No other movie has captured my attention the way that movie did.
I hope a movie as good as Inception will come along. The only movie I am looking forward to now is The Hunger Games and I scared it will disappoint
What movies are you most looking forward to?
I took it upon myself to remind my neighbor to get a motorhome insurance before they take their motorhome out for a trip outside the city next weekend. I am close to my neighbors and I know how much they are looking forward to their countryside trip. I just want them to take into consideration how important an insurance is.
And I am happy my neighbor will get one today. I just know they will enjoy their trip especially now that they have a motorhome to use. They use to rent vans to take them outside the city. It cost them a lot! So my neighbor thought she might as well invest in a motorhome so that whenever she and her three kids feel like going outside the city for a day or two, then they don’t have to rent vehicles anymore.
I am no longer a GLEEk. In fact, I stopped watching after Season 1. I just don’t like where the story line was leading to. With all the homosexuality, bitchiness and everything in between, watching it with a little girl at home was no longer appealing. I am sure you get my drift.
Well, why am I asking about GLEE now?
That’s because I keep watching reruns of Project Runway in ETC where GLEE is also being shown. I see teasers of upcoming episodes of Season 3 and past ones from Season 2 and I couldn’t believe how horrible the show has become! I was both sad and relieved whenever I see a teaser from GLEE. Sad because the show used to hold so much promise when it was just about a bunch of ‘losers’ in school grouped together to form a glee club. Then the numerous celebrities thrown here and there to rake in more viewers and Kurt becoming the center of the story when it used to be Rachel and Finn. Relieved because I stopped watching the show turn into crap!
Are you still watching it?
I don’t know if you have encountered or experienced first hand a deadly side effect of a medicine you thought would make you or someone better. I did. I saw someone suffer because what he thought would make him better turned out to be a medicine with a deadly side effect! Good thing he was able to turn the side effect around and get himself cured.
Those with diabetes might have taken a medicine called Actos. This medicine is reportedly causing bladder cancer and actos cancer lawyers are calling out to those who are suffering from it. You need not suffer anymore.
One of the things that I promised myself a few weeks before college graduation is that I will continue learning. No matter what, even with a very hectic work life, I will learn something new from time to time. It’s a must or I just know my mind will deteriorate in no time at all.
Technology is an area where I am most interested in. Even with Nihon Superior laser stencils, give me something to read about it and I will be interested to know more. Can you imagine those very small stuff being stenciled these days and still being carried out? Very interesting for me!
We must learn something new no matter what age we are.
My goodness! I don’t know what these Duggars are thinking but isn’t it enough that the 19th baby Michelle Duggar gave birth to almost killed her? And now there’s another baby (number 20!) coming!
I know the Lord said in the bible to “go forth and multiply”. But I don’t think He was telling the Duggars to get pregnant and give birth year after year until Michelle dies from giving birth! What these people are practicing is not only dangerous but also not very funny at all. Do they think that by having the most number of kids in a single family will make them achieve riches and popularity?
Yes, they are popular and have been earning from letting TLC‘s cameras roll inside their house and wherever they go to. But at what cost, especially to the kids?!?
Aren’t kids suppose to be enjoying their youth? The Duggar kids are busy helping their parents do their duties! The boys in the family do what their father is supposed to be doing inside the house if he isn’t so busy getting his wife pregnant! And the girls are busy doing the chores their mother is supposed to be doing if she isn’t pregnant year after year! Poor kids! I don’t think those kids are normal anymore.
Someone should stop the Duggar couple from cashing in on procreation like this!
