Web: Shack up with the TV

29 12 2008

So I don’t know how many of you watch TV, I am assume most if not all. A friend of mine, the wonderful Melissa, found this site and told Tracey and I about it.

P I wish!

Not my Screen.. πŸ˜› I wish!

The site is TVshack.net, and it has hundreds of shows and episodes to watch for free. To take full advantage you really need to have a fast internet connection, but other than that it works like a charm. You just cruise around looking for the show you want, clickity click and BAM.. you have showage!

Beats waiting for the shows to download.. most of the time anyway. Sometimes I prefer the files on the computer, the resolution is better when Read the rest of this entry »

11 12 2008

Man, do you remember this show? How can you not.. it has Balki!!

Anyway I don’t remember what it was that reminded me of it.. but something did and I got all excited! πŸ˜€ I have watched season one and part of season two. So very retarded.. but I’m loving it.

The dance of joy! I remember I loved Balki so much, he still cracks me up. MMm Mepos… Read the rest of this entry »





Soda VS Pop

I always thought Americans all said soda… turns out we just think that because of the movies… πŸ™‚

I’m off to the airport

2 11 2008

I’m heading out in a few minutes, man crazy weekend.

Work, then the marathon, back to Taipei some last minute stuff, waxing hanging with Melissa.Β  And now I’m off to the airport, I fly to Tokyo, and then to Chicago.Β  YAY I get to meet up with Carla on Sunday and stay with her for a day or two and then I’m heading up to Milwaukee to see some other friends… YEAH

Totally excited

I’ll write about the trip when I get there

Toodles all





GAH!!! Will not stress… will not

30 10 2008

Breath in… out .. ok

So, I thought that I wasn’t able to go pick up my race package until Thursday, turns out I was wrong.Β  I got there today and not only could I not get my race pack but I was told I can’t get it at all…Β  Well I got really upset.Β  Finally they came up with the solution that my friend Ruth, who is totally going out of her way to help me out, can go to the station tomorrow during the day and pick it up for me.Β  Then because I’m a ‘tard and lazy I didn’t buy my train tickets until today, sigh, so no seats for me.Β  I am on the fast train though which is only 2 hours or so each way πŸ™‚ I’ll live.Β  I tried to reschedule a couple of things, since my work canceled my class at the last min for Friday morning.Β  But no such luck.

Actually, I was just really ferclempt about thinking I might not be able to run my race, especially as I made an effort to make sure I could run it.Β  Tomorrow is going to be a skitch on the rough side… after work I have to go straight to the train station, stand on the train to Haulien, hang with Ruth for a while, sleep, get up at 5 am go back to the train station, up to Toroko, run race, back down town .. take the train back to Taipei and then up to the waxing place.Β  meh… I don’t mind being busy.. not that much πŸ˜›





Rock the Casbah… and others

27 10 2008

I feel like there was something real that I was sitting down to write but what ever it is it’s run away.. So you get this instead…

I’m feeling silly… and this song is dancing around in my head πŸ™‚

This has really bugged me for a long time… what the fuck is it that he won’t do for love? Read the rest of this entry »





Why do people drool when they nap, but not when they sleep?

27 10 2008

This is how we make up for productive thursdays… totally nothing sundays… I woke up early watched some tv went back to sleep.Β  Talked to some people back home on the phone for a while… well mostly I tried to call people but hardly anyone was around.Β  Go figure, seems some of you have lives ;).

Went back to sleep, watched more tv.. talk to Trace.. slept, Tv, snack, sleep, tv and nap, snack, sleep.Β  Narcoleptic napping koala bears have more get up and go than I did today :D.Β  Oh well I think I really was genuinely sick on Friday and just needed the rest.Β  About 2 hours ago I get into reading a book I’ve been meaning to spend some time on.Β  Took a few notes, had a good chat on the phone.. and now I’m off to bed.Β  I hope to get up early but I’m not forcing anything… I will not chance pushing myself and getting sick pre marathon.Β  Plus I have another million things to do on Tuesday… sigh.Β  And must pay for my ticket tomorrow morning.. busy bunny.





Yay for Novocaine

25 10 2008

So I went in today for my last appointment to get the last couple of teeth fixed (it was all minor work but better to get it done right away).Β  I was moderately terrified, if I’m being honest.Β  I realize now that I’m just a pansy when it comes to my teeth.. martial arts, sports, accidents, being hard core.. no problem .. my teeth.. big sissy.Β  And I’m ok with that. πŸ˜€

This dentist gave me some nice little shots.. finished up the work and at no point did I want to scream and run in terror or use the drill on him to teach him the power of saying ‘it’s ok it doesn’t hurt’.Β Β  I’m happy that it’s all done now though… off for a run and then to the hairdressers to get a trim.Β  It’s kinda fun being this productive I should plan last minute trips more often :D!





The Dentist… is evil

24 10 2008

So I was getting some work done and this ass tells me.. no no .. no need for a shot just a little drilling it won’t hurt.Β Β  If anyone tells you that… ram your thumb into their eye.. immediately…

It fucking hurts and I almost killed him.Β  Anyway .. I’ll never be talking into that again…

Other than that I’m not feeling too good, so I’m going to bed :P.





Influence

19 10 2008

I don’t know if you have heard of NLP (neuro-linguistic programming). I’ve heard of it as a hokey BS thing and something with real merit. Generally speaking as I understand it, it’s a form of hypnosis and influencing yourself and others with simple deliberate words, thoughts and actions. I honestly think there is something really interesting about all of this.

This video I found is a really cool example of how you can really influence someone with simple actions. There are several other videos, but they all seem to be more the usual hypnosis parlor tricks. Watch right to the end… it’s actually very interesting what you see and hear vs what you thought you saw and heard. I have been hypnotized a few times so there are several things I recognize, but there are things that are so obvious yet subtle when they go over it at the end. Read the rest of this entry »





I love Kenny Rogers

18 10 2008

Not many people know but I’m a huge Kenny fan… as much as I am a fan of anyone.

I just found a couple of news songs he wrote recently… πŸ™‚ Read the rest of this entry »





Fit for charity

12 10 2008

Hmm so I sent out an email about this.. Oddly I didn’t really hear anything back. Honestly I was a little disappointed, not that people aren’t interested but I thought that I would have heard a little something from more people. I guess my excitement didn’t spill over enough.. oops

My plan is to encourage people to participate in my fit for charity project. I made a hyped up on adrenalin video about it –> here

Pleh I had big plans to write all this out.. but .. honestly I’m tired and don’t feel like it.

Summary, I’m trying to raise money for Room to Read, it involves providing books, learning and education to kids who might not otherwise have the joy of literacy. So I’m combining some things I love, kids and the fun of introducing the world of reading to them, helping people, and fitness. For every Km you or someone you know (me perhaps) runs, someone (yourself or coworkers friends etc.. definitely hit up the boss πŸ˜‰ I did) pledges to contribute $1 or more per km… so far I have 6 people who have committed to participate by running and two who are matching my pledge.

As I said in my email, any support is appreciated… just $1, $5, $100 or even just positive words of encouragement. I’m excited, this is the first time I have ever tried anything like this and I would like to do the best I can. Will you help me?

It’s my Blog and I’ll cry if I want to

8 10 2008

I’m sad. Not gut wrenching can’t go about my day, debilitating sad… but sad none the less. Some serious, life altering changes that I was about to make, not happening.. or at least now how I planned I guess.

I had a revelation about my past behavior and am not happy with myself. In the past I have done some things that not only am I horrified with, but I am truly disappointed with my self. Part of what I did was not listen when I should have, and even worse I lied to myself and convinced myself that my actions were not only justified but right. Even when I realized that my behavior wasn’t acceptable, I still believed that my actions were justifiable. Perhaps some things were understandable… but it doesn’t make it right or something that I would approve of.

Also, there is something that I have wanted and have been focused on for 3-4 years…Β  and I’m letting it go.Β  I’m sad and no I don’t really want to talk about it.. talking won’t change anything or make me feel any better.Β  So if I seem uncommunicative or unresponsive for while you know why.Β  I’m fine I’m just sad.

later all πŸ™‚





I guess I might be popping in

25 09 2008

I don’t know if any of you use RSS readers.. but I recommend the google reader it’s kinda attached to your gmail (if you don’t have that…. um get it) and basically gives you one place to go to see if anyone has updated their blog web site etc… very excellent… so it doesn’t matter if they are on blog spot, live journal, wordpress or whatever… I’ll make a little tutorial I think sometimes soon to help everyone get it πŸ™‚

  Anyway I have some posty posties on my blog πŸ™‚ http://www.magdalicious.com

oh and check out this site πŸ˜€  http://www.happybirthdaybitch.com  If you want me to post someone’s (mom, sister, friend) birthday then just email a blurb about them and a picture or two (doesn’t need to be all sexy or anything)me and I’ll do that for you! πŸ˜€





This is the EnD.

19 09 2008

Sorry but I’m tired of double posting and linking and etc… the blog has moved and will stay moved for the time being.. not to worry.. it’s easy as pie to find.. just go to http://www.magdalicious.com and you’ll be there. or [Click here]

Sorry to anyone who follows me on live journal and finds this troublesome, but it’s just not worth the effort of posting in both places I’m sure you can understand.  There are a couple new posts over there.. I’ve been writing.. or trying to everyday.

Sicky Micky :(

15 09 2008

I’m sure I have some wonderful, interesting and fun things so share…. but not today.  I’m getting sick and am feeling mighty useless at this point in time.  So I’m curling back up in bed and hoping some sleep will kick mr cold out of here.

Floating Taipei…

14 09 2008

Well it’s isn’t, yet… but seriously if the island was ever going to sink or float off.  Seems like now would be the time it’s been absolutely pouring rain for 3 days straight, with no end in site today, or tomorrow or could even go to Tuesday.

Honestly there has been much more exciting things in the way of flooding in the city, once all my friends came to my house because they didn’t’ have power and I lived on a hill so my house was dry and had lights.  D that wasn’t even a Typhoon.. just a really long rain storm and some bad drainage.

Love Letters

14 09 2008

I have received many a little note from my students over the years…. but this one takes the cake. I got it about a year ago and have been meaning to post it online for ages.. perhaps it’s part of me balk from the promise made to a 8 year old that I wouldn’t show it to anyone.

New blog…

14 09 2008

I’m liking wordpress… one thing I really like is that I can write as many drafts as I want which will really help my blogging more often sometimes I have a lot to say but don’t want to say it all in one day.  and other times I have nothing to say. (plus my browser based spell check works in word press.. and doesn’t here, which really pisses me off)

  I haven’t fully made the switch yet and when I do it will be easy as hell to follow it.. just go to http://www.magdalicious.com (which still brings you here for the time being).

So it’s going to be an interesting few days /weeks
I’ve decided I want to get a few things done and I’ve been really crap about it. I’ve always put things off until the last minute. Well I’m trying to not do that now. Also I know it’s true but TV is a time sucker.. and it’s fine if you’ve finished everything and then you wanna veg.. but I veg and then try to finish things… appears it doesn’t work that way.

I honestly enjoy watching certain programs, I have always really enjoyed silly fluff I always will it is part of my whimsical side that I like to nurture so I’m not cutting Tv out of my life, permanently that is. But for the next couple of weeks no TV, well no ’shows’. At the same time I doing the Master Cleanse (sort of, I’ll do it how I want to), and being a Nazi about getting up in the morning. Should be interesting, I get up early and can’t watch tv.. I’ve read all my fluffy books which means I’ll have to dig into those thoughtful or learning type books I’ve got.. :P. Every time I try to do the cleanse I just sit around watching TV.. plus I want to break the habit of sitting watching TV nibbling and eating.. I eat when I watch TV and I always watch tv..                                            ……………………..[keep reading]





Let’s get it started

14 09 2008

So it’s going to be an interesting few days /weeks
I’ve decided I want to get a few things done and I’ve been really crap about it. I’ve always put things off until the last minute. Well I’m trying to not do that now.

Should be interesting, I get up early and can’t watch tv.. I’ve read all my fluffy books which means I’ll have to dig into those thoughtful or learning type books I’ve got.. :P. Every time I try to do the cleanse I just sit around watching TV.. plus I want to break the habit of sitting watching TV nibbling and eating.. I eat when I watch TV and I always watch tv.. can’t be healthy. Also when you do the cleanse you have nothing but time on your hands so much of your day is taken up with food, thinking of it, buying it preparing it, cleaning up after, etc. well after I have made me some lemonade and some tea.. I’m done. Which leaves loads of time for reading, running, biking, yoga and seeing some friends. Which is what I really want to be doing when I’m outside of work anyway. Tv was never meant to fill the majority of my day.. just the bits when I had nothing else to do.

Speaking of I’m going to make some tea.

Actually I wrote this a few days ago, so I can follow it up with an immediate update. The cleanse business is over, in part because I wasn’t that interested in doing it in the first place and Costco was out of maple syrup. I have stuck by not watching TV, which has been a skitch on the difficult side as we had a typhoon day on on a Sat. I haven’t been training this week, but I’ll be on that as soon as the weather improves (something I always forget about cleansing is running and things are difficult do to you tend to be afraid to venture too far from the potty πŸ˜‰ ).

The typhoon wasn’t very bad, just dull as usual. But Melissa came over and some silliness ensued. And we went to Emma’s house in the evening for a little shindig. All in all a fairly fun time, and a LOT of rain.





New home for the blog, maybe.

11 09 2008

WTF ads????

11 09 2008

I just realized that livejournal has put ads on my blog… snuck them in with out my permission.  Not that many people read my blog or that there is likely any revenue from it anyway, but it’s the principal! it’s my freaking blog.  If anyone should be getting any revenue from it, it should be me!  I’m pretty sure I’m going to switch over to wordpress and set up my own adsense over there…   LJ wads.

The only real reason I haven’t done it already is I’m a little lazy and I want someone to hold my hand.  But if I can work out how to build a computer I can bloody well do this :P>
