The July Deal

My birthday is on July 27. If you have any gifts you want to send me, this month would be most appropriate! 🙂

Last night, my King (aka, husband) made me a deal, which is for my own good anyway.

The deal is that I will STOP drinking soda (i.e., Coke, Pepsi, Sprite, 7UP) and all other variants as well as reduce my rice intake until said birthday. If I break it, I cannot watch the last installment of Harry Potter at the cinema.

Since I am a HUGE HUGE (also literally speaking) HARRY POTTER FAN, I have made that pledge. It may be easy for some people to do, but it is hard for me to accomplish. Which makes things a bit sweeter, I believe. At least he did not throw in the “stop eating donuts” bit or take away my chocolate. I guess he believes in baby steps, so baby steps it is.

The deal came about when I told my King about a relative’s health issue where blood pressure of the concerned party is at 200/130. So…. wake up call for the unhealthy person that is me.

I hope I win this deal. Even if the movie will show earlier than my birthday, I do not see the need to break it. I just need a deal to start anything. hahaha I do not have enough discipline, you see.

Anybody else care to make a deal with me? Like… Stop eating rice and I will give you an iPOD TOUCH or… something. hahaha

Families, like brownies, are nutty

I love brownies.
I love nuts.

But right now, the brownies and nuts are giving me headaches and is making my temperature spike.

I do not wish to vent.

I wish the DailyPost topic did not make ask me to vent because somehow I feel that venting would make me breakdown into a hundred gazillion pieces. But what they heck, it is still absolutely fun!

If you asked me 3 or 4 days ago, my ultimate answer to the daily question would be: Family.

Now I refuse to go into the specifics, just that somehow I no longer have anger in me.

See, that’s me. That is how I treat with all the unpleasant things in life.

If unpleasant things happen or obstacles, I attempt to face it as much as I can. I try to make things work, and if people ask me nicely, I often even go the extra 100 miles. But there is one thing that makes me clam up faster than an oyster whose pearl is about to be stolen, and that is by force.

Some people think the only way to get through ANYBODY and not just myself is through force. If they attempt to do that with me, then I either fight back or clam up. In most cases, somebody’s hand gets caught and they bash my head here and there. But I hang on and be as stubborn as a mule.

Though clamped up, I no longer fret. So basically, right now, in my life, despite all the roadblocks and obstacles I foresee ahead, I do not worry. Sure, I think I might be doing more than just color my hair red this year out of frustration, but I think I can do it.

So brownies, like families, are filled with nuts and can drive me extra nutty. But hey, if I think about it, brownies have more yum than nuts. So if I do not want the nuts… well, that’s for me to decide, eh?
