Wisdom Comes From The TV Screen

•March 6, 2011 • 4 Comments

I saw a glimpse of this local talk show on tv. The host is a bald mid-50’s man who has been somewhat of a celebrity here due to his wisdom and advice he gives to people on his talk show. He even has his own facebook fanpage and twitter account where he tweets and states his wisdom to his followers. But then again, in this day and age, who hasn’t had a facebook and twitter?

I don’t care much about him, unlike some of my friends who I’ve noticed have clicked ‘Like’ on his facebook page and follow his twitter and watch his talk show. Somehow I just feel like whatever he’s saying is …Keep Readin’

Krusty Is Home, Y’all!

•March 5, 2011 • 6 Comments

Krusty was released from the hospital today!

Here’s an update of his condition, a great ending from Krusty’s previously heart-breaking story.

Ready to go home, boy?

Unfortunately, I was feeling pretty under the weather so I couldn’t go to pick him up myself. A friend of ours went to the hospital and got him, took care of the paperwork and met up with his adopter.

All in all, Krusty did great. The surgery to fix his broken thigh bone was done last Monday and it was a success. The vet put …Keep Readin’

Published From Under A White Blanket

•March 4, 2011 • 6 Comments

Okay, first post using a wordpress mobile application. I gotta say it’s kinda nice typing under my fluffy blanket. Makes me feel like I’m tweeting.

I think this post is just gonna end up being one of those random ramblings. Basically coz I don’t really know what to write. I don’t have any particular idea of what I want to write. I simply feel like I want to write. I need to write.

Strangely, I don’t necessarily feel like I’m having a writer’s block again. It feels different. The last time I had writer’s block, I couldn’t even make myself write a short paragraph no matter how much I wanted to. And look, I’m on my third already now – albeit mere ramblings.

But why do we write everyday? Why does wordpress came up with their “Post a Day Challenge”? Was it to encourage us to get used to writing? To get us into our creative groove? To get us to learn how to put thoughts into words? To gather people from all over to unite under/over the same topic, category, tag, opinion, feeling, etc.? To make us feel less alone, knowing other people are writing similar stuff you’re thinking about?

Now what if I’m idealess like this very moment? I have any particular idea of what to write, so am I writing? Why do I still feel the urge to write? Is it merely to know – once again – that someone else somewhere will read this? Is it for mere audience?

And if that is so, isn’t it shallow – to write for the sake of having an audience? Aren’t we, artists, supposed to never forsake our art for anything other than the art itself? Are writers considered as artists? Bloggers as writers? Is blogging considered an art form?

I think my ramblings produce more questions than answers. Not bad for my first mobile post, especially the fact that I’m typing this with the blanket over my head and my eyes heavy and watery.

~Disclaimer: Kindly excuse all typos, incorrect grammar and mispellings. The writer of this post is in a snuggly fetus-position, not the recommended position for writing.

Your Royal Highness Little King Moshi

•March 1, 2011 • 8 Comments

Little King Moshi

Moshi and I went to the vet today. He’s been feeling down lately. We suspected it was his joints aching again. He seemed to be in such pain that he cried loudly every time we touched the back part of his body, near his tail and hind legs. Each time he was in pain like this, his body would tremor and his heartbeat raced so fast that we were afraid he was also having heart problems.

So we went to the vet, both he and I. I got him settled on his cage and waited in the vet’s waiting room. I was noticing how he was being surrounded by other dogs. Unlike how he was years ago, today he just sat there in his little cage watching everyone silently. I remembered when he was younger Keep Readin’

This pic of my cubicle was taken on my first day, one year ago.

 

Today was my last day at the office. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, this jubilation for my freedom, missing my colleagues already, and the realization of having to spend the days working from home – albeit great – with my mother hovering around me are giving me mixed emotions. Keep Readin’

Crusade to Care Krusty the Cat

Krusty on the ride to the hospital

I’m not much of a cat person, I would admit. But this one particular cat was on my mind. My friends and I christened him Krusty. Krusty was brought to our attention when someone, let’s call him “TL”, posted a picture of a cat with its thigh bone sticking out of its skin. Now, if that kind of picture don’t grab your attention, I don’t know what will.

Being dog people who run a non-profit dog group, me and my friends knew this wasn’t the time to play favorites. The cat needed help, badly. As TL then wrote to us, the cat was his neighbor’s and the cat got hit by a car about a month ago but the owner didn’t care enough to take it to the vet and left him wandering around in the streets.

Needless to say, we definitely needed to do something. So we decided to …Keep Readin’
