man vs woman

effin hilarious! hahahaha! happy new year!

If Laura, Kate and Sarah go out for lunch, they will call each other Laura, Kate and Sarah.
If Mike, Dave and John go out, they will affectionately refer to each other as Fat Boy, Loser, and Shit for Brains.

When the girls get their bill, out come the pocket calculators.
When the bill arrives, Mike, Dave and John will each throw in $20, even though it's only for $32.50. None of them will have anything smaller and none will actually admit they want change back.

A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs.
A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't need but it's on sale.

A man has six items in his bathroom: toothbrush and toothpaste, shaving cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a towel.
The average number of items in the typical woman's bathroom is 337. A man would not be able to identify more than 20 of these items.

A woman has the last word in any argument.
Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.

A woman worries about the future until she gets a partner
A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.

A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.
A successful woman is one who can find such a man.

A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.
A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, but she does.

A woman will dress up to go shopping, water the plants, empty the trash, answer the phone, read a book, and get the mail.
A man will dress up for weddings and funerals.

Men wake up as good-looking as they went to bed.
Women somehow deteriorate during the night.

Ah, children. A woman knows all about her children. She knows about dentist appointments and romances, best friends, favorite foods, secret fears and hopes and dreams.
A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.

AI season 9 top 9

I got bored of blogging American Idol so i decided to just blog the final 4 and the finale. but when they announced last week that the theme for this week are songs from the Lennon/McCartney Songbook. I cant resist! Beatles for the win. i love it when they did Beatles theme last Season 7 and i cant get over David Cook's Eleanor Rigby. so lets see what this season's top 9 got.

1. Aaron Kelly
* Long and Winding Road
- there's always a bad omen in AI that whoever goes first lands at the bottom 3. i hope this is true for Aaron because i honestly dont get why the judges like him, his voice is very ordinary and he's not even cute.
2. Katie Stevens
* Let it Be
- this is one of my fave Beatles song and im glad somebody sang it, and im not disappointed. she did justice to the song and she looks fabulous.
3. Andrew Garcia
* Cant Buy Me Love
- didnt work too well, i think its time for Andrew to pack
4. Michael Lynche
* Eleanor Rigby
- wrong wrong wrong! this is so wrong. and i still havent forgiven him for ruining an India Arie song last week.Eleanor Rigby was supposed to be a lonely/sad song and he made it to a ballad.so wrong!
5. Crystal Bowersox
* Come Together
- now this is how you do it kids! momma sox with another slam dunk!10 points!
6. Tim Urban
* All my Lovin
- i'm not sure if i love it or not but i dont hate it.
7. Casey James
* Jealous Guy
- its decent but i'm not jumping up and down about it. im a bit bored
8. Siobhan Magnus
* Across the Universe
- i just wish she sang Blackbird but i like this song as well. she delivered way better than last week and im glad she mellowed a little (screaming wise)
9 Lee DeWyze
* Hey Jude
- i love Lee

black saturday

Was lazily lying in my living room and I already finished Cold Case season 6. I’m halfway through Shutter Island and was refilling my popcorn when my phone rang. I answered… bad move! T’was my boss, asking me to come in to work… on a Freakin Black Saturday!!! I couldn’t say no, yeah, I’m pushy like that. So here I am, on a Saturday. If its any consolation, im not the only on. I have 4 other looser here beside me. Damn! I need some KFC!

this is so true

AI top 12

i hate this.i'm 2 for 3 early in the season.Lily Scott didnt make it.
good thing Crystal Bowersox and Siobhan Magnus did.
here i think is Crystal's best performance


American Idol 9.2

somebody sent me a PM last week asking me why i reviewed the girl's performance but not the guys. well, because i dont think the guys did well last week and last night. this week, AI got a little attention that they need courtesy of one of this year's favorite, Crystal Bowersox. she was rushed to the hospital the night before their performance which resulted to the switch between the girl's night and the boy's night. AI producers did not make any guarantees about her fate till a few hours before tonight's show, made viewers glued (including me). she's one of my fave so i really hope she's well enough for the finals.
Crystal Bowersox - As Long As I Can See Light (great start! love the arrangement. i'm really a fan.)
Haeley Vaughn - The CLimb (sorry,but i really dont get why she's in the top 12)
Lacey Brown - Kiss Me (following Kara's advice from last week may not be a bad idea)
Katie Stevens - Put Your Records On (wrong wrong wrong...i think she should be the one singing the Miley Cyrus song)
Didi Benami - Lean on Me (arranging a classic is a bold move, make it or break it...i think she broke it)
Michelle Delamor - With Arms Wide Open (i'm still torn, to like or not to like)
Lily Scott - A Change Is Gonna Come (love it!)
Katelyn Epperly - The Scientist (from a Coldplay fan, its not that good)
Paige Miles - Walk Away (i think she's going home :( )
Siobhan Magnus - Think (now thats how you end a show. with exclamation point!!!!!)

i hope they fast forward the show so that its top 3 already and its Crystal,Lily and Siobhan competing for the title. now that would make me glued on my TV.


Percy Jackson and my lil sister

After a month of hiatus I finally went home over the weekend. My little sister (who’s 15 years my junior) is so excited she had the whole weekend planned for us. When I arrived home she’s babbling about her highschool application, she’s only finishing gradeschool this March. She wants to go to this Science School in our town in preparation for her college plans. She told me she wants to be a doctor if I’m willing to send her to med school. Huhuhu! 10 years in college? lil sis for the win!
Anyway, we went and watched Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief… altogether now… so juvenile! Hahaha! I actually like the film, its fun and I want to read the book too. My sis is so funny coz she’s giggling like a teenager she is from beginning till end of the movie; apparently she has a huge crush on Percy. Well at least she’s over her crush on one of the Jonas Brothers. It’s the first time that we went and watched a movie that she did not even touch her popcorn. When the movie ended she keeps dropping comments on how she wants to read the book, some 30 minutes later I’m being dragged to the bookstore, did I tell you she’s spoiled? Hahaha! Well yeah I spoil her a bit, just don’t tell our other sis. Hahaha! Too bad coz they ran out of stock so lil sis will have to wait at least a month. Since we’re both disappointed we decided to cap the night with pizza and starbucks. While eating dinner she asked me… “ how come you took me out on a date on V-day? Don’t you have a date?” I laughed then I answered with a question, “why? Don’t you want to go out with me tonight?” she just shrugged her shoulder and continued eating, “course not, its just that since we’re in the movie house I see a lot of couples and here there are a lot of couples too. And we’re sister. And you haven’t introduced us to a boyfriend” I started laughing a bit too loud “just eat your pizza” hahahaha! Sometimes I feel old just looking at her.


cheesecake tale

I was in queue with a bunch of Doctors during lunch today. I’m not a big fan of cafeteria food so I’m not too excited about my lunch but I saw cheesecake so my heart lightened a bit. When it was my turn I asked for cheesecake…
Me: hi, can I ask for a slice of cheesecake?
Server: sorry ma’am but those are for Doctors only.
Me: are you serving them for free?
Server: no, but we only serve it to Doctors?
Me: what? Can I ask why? I’ll pay for it anyway
Server: I’m not sure but its not for free (he’s giving me what I think is his best apologetic look)
Me: what?! I don’t get it. Its not for free but its not for me either? Do you think those Doctors have different set of stomach from us?!

* I nudged my tray a bit too hard towards him and marched outside the cafeteria. I know I attracted attention from the Doctors in queue with me but I don’t care. Its not about the cheesecake anymore, it’s about parity. Are they saying that Nurses and Physical Therapist (or whatever non Doctor hospital people) cant eat the same hospital food that Doctors eat, Doctors need to have some special meal or something. That’s BS! Total BS!

When I was doing in-patient treatment in the afternoon I was writing in a patient’s chart when a doctor approached me. He’s writing something beside me and he smiled. I gave him a shy smile. Then he said, “We don’t actually have different stomach and I don’t agree with the discrimination either” and he clicked his pen, winked at me and walked away. I was stunned and ashamed of myself at the same time. Must be some scene I created in the cafeteria. But I’m glad I’m not the only one who think so.
