The Keys to Your Heart

You are attracted to obedience and warmth.
In love, you feel the most alive when things are straight-forward, and you’re told that you’re loved.
You’d like to your lover to think you are loyal and faithful… that you’ll never change.
You would be forced to break up with someone who was ruthless, cold-blooded, and sarcastic.
Your ideal relationship is comforting. You crave a relationship where you always feel warmth and love.
Your risk of cheating is zero. You care about society and morality. You would never break a commitment.
You think of marriage as something precious. You’ll treasure marriage and treat it as sacred.
In this moment, you think of love as something you thirst for. You’ll do anything for love, but you won’t fall for it easily.

    Finally, an update of some sort…


Some may ask why I almost never wear lipstick or lip gloss. “Is it because you kiss too many boys?” I’ve figured it out! It’s because I eat way too damn much. It’s like put it on in the morning. Eat yogurt, fruit, juice, and lipstick. Put the damn stuff back on. Wipe off and eat lunch. Put the damn stuff back on, eat it all up while I workout. Put the damn stuff back on if I go out for dinner, and eat the damn stuff again. I can never have lipstick on. It’s just that simple. And for the opposite effect…I put lip gloss and lipstick on so I purposely avoid kissing any first dates, or boys etc…After all, who wants to smack lips with gooeyness. But I don’t have that problem anymore. Cuz’ I’m engaged. But still…I can’t stand eating lipstick and lip gloss. It’s so yucky bleh bleh. So, there’s your information about me for the day. Now get back to work all y’all slackers and stalkers. What do you think about lip gloss and lipstick? Give me your feedback people.


Mood: Rested. I actually woke up at 5:30 am naturally thinking that it was 7:30 am and time for me to go get ready for work. When in fact I still had two more hours of blissful sleep. aahhhh..refreshed.


Weird…I had the weirdest dream last night. I was actually Princess Di for one whole day. Even down to the scary fights I was having with Prince Charles. It was so surreal and gnarly. I mean it was nuttier than squirrel turds. I kept on pinching myself and all I could do was freeze in the body and life of someone I hardly even think about or know anything about. But it was so incredibly vivid. It really scared me.


What to do? Work, work, workout, more work, work, clean, pack, shower, eat, drop into bed and pass out. Repeat for the next 3 days.


M-Day is only 3 days away. I’m such a procrastinator. What packing did I do for the past 2 months? I packed my Lenox crystal dessert plates and bowls. Oh yeah and my Chinese tea set. That will be lots of help when I need to wake up in the morning and get ready for work. Really great help…Would you like some tea before work, honey? While I sip mine surreptiously naked at the dining table. Yah, the tea set is what I need to get by in life. Nevermind the clothes, pots, pans, and shoes. Nevermind, the toothbrush. I’ll just drink tea and eat ice cream. Impractical ninny = me. Have a nice day!

“All that Cheers Me Are the Jingle Jangle of My Keys” (Modified Blues)


 


    This is how the past few days go,


I stubbed my toe on the bed post,


Spilled tea on my spreadsheet,


Boss wants me as toast.


 


Had a nightmare about parting


I don’t know why this must be.


Now the only thing that cheers me,


Is the jingle jangle of my keys.


 


I ain’t got change for a dollar,


No snack from the vending for me.


Can you feel the pent up holler?


I just want to scream.


 


Billed our clients for expenses,


That’s how I spent 6 hours today.


Now the only thing that cheers me,


Is the jingle jangle of my keys.


 


Cleaned some grout over the weekend,


Stains were more stubborn than my head.


Where is my godsend?


Why do bad things happen to good people?


 


Think I got gypped out of furniture,


Damn people gave me a run for $2,500.00.


Now the only thing that cheers me,


Is the jingle jangle of my keys.


 


Asked the old man to help me,


Said he had no time at all,


So now I have a dispute form to my name,


And a broken heart too.


 


Where is my god send?


Is it in the shape of a Rory?


Now the only thing that cheers me,


Is the jingle jangle of my keys.


 


Everything is broken down,


Including my damn car.


When will the madness end, I say?


I’m going to go get some The’


 


Now the only thing that cheers me,


Is the jingle jangle of  my keys.

    Okay, I’m a slacker…I haven’t been posting for awhile. But here I am again after a month or so. Well, the last entry talked about my engagement and inevitably the loss of singledom. Yes, I’m no longer on the meat market =) Retire me will you? Here’s a couple of things that is interesting…How come we are so bombarded by sensory information everyday? Lights? Noises? Horns? Gasoline Smells? The media? I mean I feel pretty overwhelmed with all these sensory inputs. My eyes don’t want to open sometimes and my ears are half deaf. Not to mention my brain is about to explode and my muscles are twitching every which way. I remember the simpler times when there wasn’t much to do. Now the workplace is like a constant battlefield. I am almost always behind by one chess move. To conquer my work load is always tangible near my fingertips but is so elusive that sometimes I just give up trying to finish so much and just relax. But today isn’t one of those days. I am actually on schedule and feel really good that the stack of papers near the corner of my desk have been pushed, numbers have been crunched, and my nerves are relieved. My nerves have been pretty much shot for the past week and a half or so. Now I feel alot better and maybe I can sleep peacefully. When I did sleep last week I actually dreamed about the most random things. Maybe my sheets are also to blame for my insomnia. But anyhoots I’m so relieved. Now, the only major event in my life is moving in with L. Yup folks, I will be moving out to my own place or should I say OUR own place in June. Playing house is so fun. I just wonder if I’ll manage my household well enough considering I’m such a lazy butt. I do think however that little grains of sand can form a mountain, so I’ve been setting miniature goals for myself to conquer everyday. Yesterday it was folding the clothes in my chair and cleaning up old magazines. Tonight it will be to get a new down comforter, vacuum, clean up the mess I made, and organize my warranty folder. Tomorrow, it will be to wash my sheets and put away my dry cleaning. Friday will be to clean the bathroom, fold my mother’s clothes, and take a bubble bath. See…all in miniature agendas that can be handled every night. The fun thing about moving out is that no one can tell you what to do. This is it…the furniture will reflect your taste. Everything is a reflection of yourself (or of yourself and your fiance who is moving in with you!). I mean take for instance before…when I was a kid I would argue with my mother that pink carpet with pink grout really wasn’t in vogue. But where would that get me? Of course my butt would be plastered to our brand new PINK carpet while I grew up in the apt. Everytime we got new flooring, appliances, and furniture I would most likely have a different opinion than my parents. So now I get to choose what I want in our home more or less. And L lets me handle everything because he trusts my taste. Or should I say we have potentially more or less the same taste than my parents and I. Enough talking…I’m going to go work some more.


Mood: Giddy


What’s New: I’m moving out! New computer at work. Starting to read good books again (I can’t fathom why I put reading down for so long! Maybe it was the eyes). New cutie friend Alissa.


Goal for my social life: Write one e-mail/ call close people across the nation/globe. I don’t want to lose touch so I’m going to make time to write to one person a day. Something brief but to tell them I’m still here and Wassup!?!?!


Goal for myself: Get a tooth, stop being so critical of others, get to sleep by 11 pm everyday, try to make a difference in the world.


Craving for: Nice, sweet smelling, and cool sheets I can just slide into and drift off to lala land. (NOTE: This topic isn’t about food!).


Career Path: You know what I wouldn’t mind doing? Being a lifestyle organizer. It’s almost like a personal assistant but you work for alot of clients. People are making more and more money but having less and less time to themselves. I would love to utilize my planning skills to take care of people’s lives. Time to look more in to that career…they make $45.00-$125.00 and hour!

Well folks, imagine this…you walk in to a library and the shelf contains one book. You pick up that book and peruse it’s title. The book is titled “Jill’s Life.” You start flipping through the pages and your fingers skim to a chapter titled “The Engagement.” Then you start reading that chapter. But you never remembered that it was in the book until now. In fact you know that this is a new chapter in “Jill’s Life” The chapter goes something like this…Jill went to London, UK on a 6 day and 5 night trip. It ended up being a trip of a lifetime. Not only did Jill see Queen Elizabeth II and her husband the Duke of Edinburgh Prince Philip. She also saw 3 plays/musicals in the theatre. They were “Woman in Black”, “National Anthem”, and “Les Mis’erables.” Well Kevin Spacey was in “National Anthem” and David Schwimmer was in the audience!!! David Schwimmer also held the door to the bathroom for her. All theatre tickets were purchased at the half price ticket booth in Leicester square. The food was wonderful in London. So was the shopping. Aquascutum was new, Burberry was robbery expensive, and all kinds of delightful things were present just waiting for someone to take them home. In which case that someone was me sometimes. Jill also went to see the usual London spots such as Kensington Palace and Gardens, Windsor Castle, National Portrait Gallery, Hampton Court, Tower of London, and the British Museum. The most interesting clothing she saw was a Planet Hollywood United Kingdom Sweater. The initials were “PHUK” hahaha…But since this is a chapter titled “The Engagement” there should be some mention that Jill got engaged in London! The bloke she’s marrying in 1.5-2 years is the short, dark, handsome, and intelligent man of her dreams. It goes something like this. After a long day of sightseeing and being tourists, Jill’s left foot was on fire. By the time they got back to the hotel, they both were beat. The elevator wouldn’t show up fast enough. So, L thought to himself if I can carry Jill up the stairs 4 stories then I will propose to her right then and there. Well, he ended up carrying her without fail. When they got in the room he threw her on the bed. As she was pulling herself up, he pushed her down again and exclaimed “I’m going to do it!” Jill thought to herself “Don’t rape me!” L got down on one knee and proposed. In the little red box with a little red and white checkered bow was a scrap of tissue paper. Jill thought the ring was wrapped there. But it turned out the ring was under the little insert. It was the most brilliant and beautiful diamond ring she had ever seen. Well hopefully the rest is history and the history becomes the future.

On April 22, 2005 L asked Jill to marry him and spend the rest of her life with him. She wonders if London will be just as beautiful as it was that trip on her 10th anniversary. Will their son look like him?

    Errr…I am back from the LA Marathon and Emerald Nuts 5k run. All in all, this weekend was awesome. We did come back with a few extra things including but not limited to my fubared ankle, lover boy’s upset stomach, his marathon medal, tons of good memories, and oodles of freebies from the Emerald Nuts Quality of Life Expo. Welpz, we stayed at the Wilshire Grand hotel and the place was pretty nice. The room size was extremely small and compact but I’m not complaining because both me n’ L are fairly compact. Hmm…the bathroom was like an airplane’s bathroom hehehe…there was no counter space to put anything. But the hotel was decent. And I will tell you why later. But on Saturday we arrived in LA around 12 pm. We proceeded to go to the Emerald Nuts Quality of Life Expo so L could pick up his runner’s bib, registration information, and goody bag. I registered late for the 5k too. But Leonard and I got the same goodies. Except he had preferential treatment during and after the race, a different T-shirt, and a medal. Well, that expo beats out any expo I’ve ever been to in terms of free loot. I mean Orowheat was passing out full sizes of wheat English muffins (6 to a pack!), Breyers was passing out sugar free ice cream bars, Mahatma rice was passing out small plates of rice, All kinds of marathons from across the country and internationally were passing out awesome Mizuno hats, Nike was passing out free Swag bag coupons to redeem at their LA store, Emerald Nuts were passing out full sizes of roasted nuts. Cereal Companies were passing out Cereals and granola bars, Astroglide, Jelly Belly, Salonpas, Tylenol, Neosporin, All kinds of energy gels, and power bar companies were passing out samples. We scored so much free stuff. This proved that running and the LA marathon really have a huge sponsership. Not like the Asian American Expo or Ski Dazzle. Just one big marketing scheme to get you to buy something. The coolest part is you only have to pay $10.00 for parking. Admission to the expo is totally free! So, if you live in LA don’t forget to go to the Emerald Nuts Expo next year before the LA Marathon. It’s like athlete’s heaven. Well, that evening we had to carbo load (Well, not me but Leonard did!). We ended up going to the Old Spaghetti Factory and waited an hour for a table. That’s cuz the place is cheap and sooo good. The four of us ate for $58.00 or so. We had salad, soup, hot tea, milk, pasta, bread, Italian cream soda, and Spumoni ice cream. Geee…talk about stuffed! After dinner, we crashed around 11 or 12 pm. The next day we woke up around 7:24 am for the race. Well we did our stuff and the rest is history. L ran the marathon in approx 03:11:58. Placing him overall at #211 out of approx. 21,000 people running the darn thing. But he’s pissed he missed the Boston Marathon qualification time by a minute or so. I finished my 5k in approx. 0:35:58 placing me overall 917 out of 2,465 people or so. hahaha…I’m such a jokeamal but hey I started training last Monday!!! Ah wellz, I’m so proud of my huuunny! Ta Ta for now!


Mood: La Di Di


What was Gay: Trying to go to the ‘family reunion area’ after the LA Marathon. Every freaking street was blocked off and I walked 5-7 miles trying to get there. As a result I missed my babe at the finish line and had to see them in the hotel room!


Aftermath: The lunch buffet at the Wilshire Grand was awesome. They had a carving station with thick, juicy slabs of prime rib,  turkey, and ham. They made this ham and cheddar grilled sandwich that was mighty tasty. Salads, cookies, fruit, and an array of desserts topped off the perfect post running lunch. My only qualms with it was that it was $22.49 for just me, myself, and I.


Bye!

     Blah Blah…what have I been up to lately? Well, I’m actually reading the bible! Going to church ever so occassionally. And hmmm…getting excited for the LA Marathon. Nope, dearest reader you din’t read the last sentence wrong. The adjective ‘excited’ added in front of LA Marathon written by Jill? Is that the same couch potato who didn’t even want to unglue her butt from the couch in time to get a bowl of ice cream for the movie Independence Day? Hahahaha…Well, you’ve got it correct. Lately, I’ve been doing things I never fathomed doing in my lifetime. Okay, don’t get me wrong. I’m not uber-religious now or anything remotely close. I’ve just come to appreciate the wisdom of christianity and the bible. Something just clicked and now I feel that maybe there is a God. And as for being excited for the LA Marathon? Well, guess what? I’M NOT RUNNING IT!!!! Hahaha…so don’t be too shocked. My lover boy is going to be running his ass off and not me. I’m just an accesorizing, all-encompassing cheering machine that will make him feel better if I’m there. Now, you’re saying “I’m disappointed in you?” Well don’t be. I’m still running the Emerald Nuts 5k run/walk-a-thon. I have been eating english muffins in the morning (gotta get some kind of carbs) and then running every day. I even went to A Snail’s Pace in Laguna Hills to purchase some running shoes. Apparently I’m an Overpronater? That means ‘the roll’ of my feet tend to go inwards as opposed to even or outwards. The place is a great store for runners. Has almost everything. Including those gross GU gels. Man I hope I never have to run a marathon and suck on gel. It just sounds so nasty. Okay, who am I kidding? I think I might be more excited about the pasta dinner the night before the marathon/5k than I am about the running the next day. But we don’t have to tell anyone about it right? That’ll be our little secret.  Wish me and the boy luck!


Mood:


Why I’m pleased: After my first run I woke up like I was black and blue all over. I think I’m just starting to get my running legs. Today I woke up feeling excellent and in tip top shape. Maybe the glucosamine pills helped, or the running shoes. But either way I feel on top of the world. The arches of my feet were hurting too but I am actually using 6 oz. cans of apple juice to massage them. Rolling them underneath my feet make them feel better hehehe…I just popped them in the fridge so they’re icy cold too. I’m sure I’ll feel really good today. I’ll see if I can go running. Maybe I’ll take a break. Dunno yet.


Looking Forward to: Succulent lettuce on a bed of grilled burger, onions, cheese, tomatoes, and onion bread. Baked crinked fries. Cherry sparkler. Seeing L! Mhhhmmm…my mouth can’t stop watering and it’s only 9:30 am. Dang it! Well, I can be the dog in Pavlov’s experiment hehehe…Ooohhh also running today, showering after my run, drama, and sleeping.


Not Looking Forward to: A/P check batch, collecting money from mean people that owe our company mucho bucks.

Yah! Profile picture change again. There’s me at the Asian American Expo a couple weeks ago. Man the thing was a disappointment. I mean it was just one mass marketing scheme, designed to get hapless asians to purchase real estate, water heaters, or re-fi their houses. hahaha…we’re such suckers! Anyhoots yup there’s me. Enjoy.

BUBBLE AND SQUEAK (England). Fried-up leftovers, of variable composition, normally should include at least 2 of the following: cabbage, carrots, onions, potatoes or mashed potatoes. Should be fried until a crisp layer forms on the outside. 


Dearest reader, here is your gastronomic term for the day.I’m dreaming of travelling the world to sample wondrous food. The reality is I’m stuck here in a dimly lit 4×4 cubicle. Maybe someday I will get the chance. My co-worker says I’m like a walking gastronomic dictionary. So I should impart my knowledge and newly learned information to whomever would like to know. So when I’m inclined I will write about dishes, gross food, gastronomic terms, etc…just to make you dear reader more worldly!


Mood: Happy


Today Is: Chinese New Year! Just thinking of the longan, rice wine congee makes me  I can hardly wait for dinner!


Frown on: Bratty kids pestering parents and relatives for red envelopes. I mean joking about it is fine but really asking many times is so disrespectful. Have some class and don’t ask for red envelopes this year. Do yourself a favor and maybe the envelopes will start rolling in. Sometimes when the timing or situation is right what’s yours will come around. You don’t need to strain yourself too hard.


       May your spring be full of warmth and happiness! Go home and enjoy dinner with your family. Even if you’re not Chinese. You don’t need a special day to celebrate all the beautiful things in your life.
