Just wash your damn hands!!!

12 Jan

Wash your hands

One of my biggest “gross” moments is when guys don’t wash their hands after using the bathroom to pee. Even though %95 my guy friends agree with me on how gross and disgusting that is, some of them argue that they don’t really touch anything, so why should they wash their hands.

I remember the first time I had my guy friends over to hang out, I told them when they’re in my house they have to wash their hands after using the washroom and wash their hands if they’re getting something from the kitchen. I have no issues when it comes to telling them how nasty it is when they don’t wash their hands, even at work, if I notice someone not washing their hands after using the washroom, I’ll bring up the topic somehow and make sure they know I think they’re gross. It amazes me how people are so careless specially after the Swine-flu and Sars and all sorts of other diseases going around.

All that said, imagine how I felt after I realized that the repairman my internet company had sent for me to fix my modem did not wash his hands after using my washroom. So GROSS!!! I was so shocked. I ended up taking an hour and cleaning everything he touched before and after the washroom incident. I was so shocked, I always thought repair men for big companies have to go through some sort of repairmen etiquette courses before they are released in to the world. You know, take your shoes off, be clean, wash your hands after using the washroom, be polite. Sigh….or is that just a myth and there are no courses like that?

I actually got tempted to call and complain about the incident but at the same time I didn’t want them to think I’m a weirdo. haha. I’m a weirdo who doesn’t want to get sick (ironically, I’m actually very sick now with a bad stomach flu!). I hate repairmen from hell, and Phil from Bell, you’re SUPER GROSS!!!!!

Discovering Polyvore.com

I fell in love with the Polyvore website, it’s everything a girl could ask for. Polyvore is an online resource for someone who wants to window shop, play dress up or just spend a few hours looking through creative assortments of pictures.

With the help of one of their browser plug-in, you can add almost any item from any online store to its massive library and use those pieces to put together an outfit or a piece of art.

When each of these creations are done, they look like the above picture. But Polyvore offers a great tool to its users beside letting them play stylist online, each piece of the above picture has a link attached to it and by a simple click of the mouse you are off to the specific website for each item, taking the guess-work and the hassle of browsing through pages and pages of different website to a thing of the past. Unfortunately WordPress doesn’t let me add the proper code to the picture so, I can’t properly demonstrate this amazing tool. (Grrr…..)

I’ll be honest it took me awhile to learn how to make one of these pictures together since the picture library is very extensive (no worries you can search through products by category or designer) but the result made me very proud of my skills as a stylist! haha

I picked the picture from “vale<3” because I could see myself wearing that outfit. This is a simple example of what Polyvore users can put together. So go and see what you can create!

Happy styling!!!!!!

I love movies!

1 Jan

I decided to take sometime and write a list of my favorite movies. I can’t think of all of them now, but I’ll put down as many as I remember and I’ll add updates as I remember them. Here’s the list in no particular order:

– The Note Book: Aww, I love this movie, every time i watch it I cry like a baby. Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling are super hot in the movie. I always dream about having a relationship so deep that even if things don’t work out right away, somehow everything would turn out fine. I must say I don’t want to lose my memories of the greatest love of my life like she did, but all in all a great movie.

The Notebook

The NoteBook

– Gone with the wind: Use to be one of my favorite movies and books. I watched that movie so much that I eventually ended up not being able to watch it for a very long time. How sad is that! I use to have the biggest crush on Clark Gable. So smug and full of himself, and Scarlett just annoyed the hell out of me, so stupid! I recommend this movie, since its such a classic thing and everyone should watch it!

– When Harry met Sally: I absolutely adore this movie, the idea of falling in love with your best friend has crossed almost everyone’s head at one point or another and this movie is the best way to show it. Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan are amazing on screen together. I can’t even count the number of times a guy friend and I had the type of discussion they had and we pretty much to the same conclusion as they did, a guy and a girl can’t just be friends, sex always changes everything! (I’m actually watching this right now for the 2nd time in row tonight! lol)

– Sliding doors: Another fantastic movie about the what if things had happened in a different way. I’m not a big fan of Gwyneth Paltrow, but she was good and John Hannah is an adorable character.

– Star Trek 2009: Lots of hot guys in my favorite sci-fi movie. I’m a big Trekkie fan and I pretty much have seen all the episodes of all Star Trek shows, all generations. When I watched the latest¬† Star Trek movie I experienced all the emotions a director/producer wants a movie goer to experience, scared, excited, sad, happy and giddy (My friend was not very happy when I cried in the theater after Kirk’s dad exploded along with his ship! lol) . It was a great come back for Star Trek and I have to buy the DVD for it!

– Love Actually: Very cute movie filled with lots of lovable British cast. One of my favorite parts is when Keira Knightley’s husband’s friend tells her how he feels about her. I loved the delivery!The movie starts off confusing with too many story lines goign on at the same time but it will all make sense at the end, just keep on watching.

– You’ve got mail: Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan have a few movies together and I must say they are a winning team! The whole concept of falling in love over the internet was such a big thing and probably still is, but to be able to make it in a sweet un-creepy way was great. Even though if I was in Ryan’s shoes would have kicked Hank’s butt for playing with my mind for awhile, I would have totally had the same reaction when she found out that her mystery friend from the net is the same person who put her out of job and she had grown to love. What a wonderful world!

– I love you man: My mom and I have a big crush on Paul Rudd and we thing Jason Segel is a cute, awkward giant! The idea of finding friends after a certain age is pretty hard, most people find their friends either in the last years of high school or during the college /university years and as we get older finding friends gets harder and harder. So having to go along with these guys on their “man dates” is a total treat. The combination uptight Rudd and easy going Segel just totally makes the movie worth watching.

– Under the Tuscan sun:¬† This movie came out a few months after I returned from studying in Italy and I could not have been happier. I wish I could be able to drop my life here and go buy a half ruined villa in Tuscany and forget all about the crap that the modern city dwellers have to deal with.I love Diane Lane, she’s so pretty and amazing. I hope I look like her when i get to her age! ahahah

– Something’s gotta give: I liked this movie because it shows that even if people are old and single there’s still hope for finding love. I think the combination of the actors in this movie just make it even better. This is a total family movie that you can watch with people of all ages, even though there’s a little bit of sex goign on, it’s more funny than x rated.

Im finally a Kiva lender!!!

28 Nov

So a while back I shared some information about Kiva.org and how it works. I love the idea so much I actually found someone I want to loan my $25 to!

My entrepreneur’s name is Jaime Emelia, a farmer from the Philippines. He does rice farming and he raises pigs on the side for extra income. The total loan amount is only $275!!! How little is that. So far a few people have helped him and raised $120, but there’s only 30 days left and $150 to fund. Go check it out, sign up and lend your $25! Support my farmer friend so he can buy the supplies he needs to provide for his family!

Here’s my Kiva profile page, check it out! Tdotgirl on Kiva.

Happy Kiva time!!!!
