do you sometimes wish that you were anywhere else except where you're at?

anywhere. but here.

update to the shelfari fiasco

yesterday i posted about the fiasco concerning shelfari.

i left a message on the feedback portion of the site, telling them about my (and karen's) dilemma. danny from shelfari replied this morning.

he said that he will add my email address to a list of addresses from which no reminders would be sent.

i figured it was best considering the circumstances. plus, he said that there's an option in the reminder email for the recipient to not be sent any more mail from shelfari.

sigh. that'll learn me.

can you hear me creaking?

i've been making pleadings for the past two weeks and i hadn't really realized how totally rusty i was when i typed this in:

highlighted italicized quote from supreme court...(emphasis HOURS)

hours? hours?? hours????

i went out to get coffee. to oil the brain.


shelfari fiasco

okay. so there i was, happily putting virtual books on my virtual shelf when i thought i'd search for some friends who have joined shelfari too. so i let the thing search my contact list.

happy happy! i found some friends and their names were all checked. so i added them. only to find out that when i hit enter and scrolled down, ALL the people i've ever sent email to for the past 3 years, even that girl i picked a fight with for sending me the wrong item on ebay got sent an invitation!

hell i even sent myself an invitation to join shelfari.

the only consolation i got was that karen had the same dilemma. hahahah.

oh well. may i be forgiven for spamming. however inadvertently. :D

on hair loss and dandruff

i got a massage the other day and the masseuse noticed that my hair is thinning.

it has always been a cycle for me to lose hair occasionally, specially when stressed, or when my hormones are going particularly wild.

anyway, the masseuse said i should get calamansi and rub it into my scalp before i sleep. she swears by it.

so i thought i'd use technology (the internet) to research superstition (or so i thought). apparently there's scientific basis for her claims, which i will not get into at the moment. but i will quote a post in a forum of pinoys in japan. this is from user "puting tainga" and i quote:

Ayon sa isang doctor, if you have balakubak, it means you need more Vitamin B.
Corn, wakame (the seaweed), are the things you can get Vitamin B easily. (At saka mura. Mahal ang mga gamot o supplements.)

As for the hair loss, read the Bible and be comforted.
When the bad kids teased Elisha for his baldness, two bears appeared and killed them all. (2 Hari 2:23-24)
The hairs of your head are all numbered. (Mateo 10:30)

I hope this will help you.

made my morning. hope it makes yours. :)

i am officially un-anonymous*.

had a hearing last tuesday, the first i have ever had to attend in baguio.

up till last tuesday i was happily anonymous in the courts here. i can walk in and out of the hall of justice in shorts and a ratty shirt and no one would pay any attention to me.

unfortunately during the hearing i was interrogated by the judge regarding the fact that there are 4 lady lawyers in our family (i am the last one to ever show up), one of whom used to be a prosecutor. people stared and i felt sad that i became known.

now i can't dance around the grocery aisles (as i am wont to do), paint the town red, or drive like a madman.

sigh. small towns.

i miss my anonymity already.

*not found in dictionaries. just seemed appropriate for this post.
