This issue’s lolTam is a little different.

No, that is not a typo. Look at my shoe:

Isn’t it the cutest little thing?

Don’t you just think it’s adorable?

But wait…something about it looks wrong next to its sister.

Oh, yeah! There it is! That’s what’s wrong!

IT’S MISSING A FRIGGIN’ SOLE!

Sasha is not amused.

Not one bit. Note pissed off face.

So, a little history. After work today, I went home and watched American Idol. After that, I went to Rockwell with my mom and my sister to buy gifts for my goddaughter Zy, who is celebrating her birthday this Saturday. We were pretty hungry after that so we had dinner at Coffee Bean before watching Over Her Dead Body. While we were eating, I happened to look down and noticed something weird about my left shoe. It looked like another shoe was attached to it. But I could feel my other shoe on my right foot, so it couldn’t have been that. Then I looked closer and realized my

EFFIN’ SOLE HAD COME OFF!

Wow! Really!? I thought stuff like that only happened in Mentos commercials. I never really realized how important soles are until tonight. My left foot hurts so much! Plus, it didn’t help my already terrible scoliosis one bit.:( By that time, all the stores were closed, so I couldn’t buy a new pair of shoes…not even slippers! Grrr!

PS: Yes, I so need a pedicure.

I think I just might be in love with this girl. Okay, maybe not. But she’s gorgeous and talented. Want to watch more? Then click away.

Thanks Madz for introducing me to this wonderful new artist.:)

I’ve seen a lot of really great customized Converse Chucks out there, but I think I’ve found the best one yet. It’s not just the actual design (which is the sh!t, btw) but the thought of the whole thing.

 

 

These are my cousin’s husband’s Chucks. He designed it himself and used it on their wedding day (you can see part of my cousin’s wedding dress in the picture). Around the ankle, you can see my cousin’s face. It’s just the sweetest and coolest thing for a guy to design his shoes with your face and then wear it on your wedding day. I find it incredibly romantic and quirky.

On our way to work today, my sister and I were discussing The Time Traveler’s Wife. She had just finished reading it this morning and we were both talking about how beautiful and engaging it was. How much it made us depressed, etc. I said I wish they’d make a movie of it. Lo and behold, I almost had a heart attack when my sister IMed me this link.

I love that Rachel McAdams is playing Clare. I like Eric Bana and all, but Henry isn’t supposed to be as buff. Maybe they’ll make him trim down or something. Gomez is supposed to be the buff one, but they cast Ron Livingston. Eh…I don’t care. I just can’t wait for it!!

Hilarity ensued.

OMG Aren’t they the cutest?!? “Chawlie…that weely huwt!”

And Charlie’s face on the second vid when he bit his own finger!! And after 2 seconds, he goes right back to eating. Man! Where can I get one of these?! Hahaha!

LOL @ that face!

There was a mix-up yesterday and the driver picked me up from the office earlier than expected. So I went home around 3:30 and I knew I was gonna’ be home alone the whole night because my parents and brother went to a wedding and my sister had this thing with her college friends. There are times when I would love to be left alone in the house, but for some reason, yesterday was not one of those times. So I texted Pany, my high school friend/cousin’s cousin who lived nearby if she was doing anything that night and asked her to come over. She agreed and said she’ll bring her cousin Kadi along. We were friends in high school, so that was cool too.

Basically, we just hung out, ate pizza, reminisced about high school shit, watched TV, went to our friend Cora’s house, went back to Kadi’s house cos I wanted to see her sister Jessica, who I was pretty close to back in high school, then they dropped me off at my place again around…2-ish?. I haven’t hung out with them in a really long time so it was fun. Would definitely want to do it again some time…maybe add a little alcohol into the mix. Haha!

Was finally able to watch Atonement last Thursday. Everyone kept telling me to just watch it on DVD, but I wanted to wait until they showed it in the cinemas here. OMG I’m in love with that movie. It was beautifully done, no excesses, no special effects…just a beautiful story with great actors. It’s a sad story, but that doesn’t take away from its beauty at all. Anyone who knows me know about my Keira Knightley obsession so you know I was looking forward to this movie because of her. Of course she delivered, she never fails in my eyes. But apart from her, wow! James McAvoy was brilliant in this film. I’ve only ever seen him in Narnia before (will see Last King of Scotland soon-ish) so I didn’t really know if he had great acting chops or not. After seeing this movie, there’s no question about it. The boy can cry…and make me cry. Haha! This is definitely a must-see.

Because I’m feeling lazy (on this incredibly humid Saturday afternoon), I will just go through the other movies quickly.

Dan in Real Life – it was funny and cute. Made me cry a couple of times. I will always adore Steve Carell (yes, I’m an Office addict as well). Wish Dane Cook had more scenes though, he wasn’t able to do much.

The Flock – OMG don’t even THINK about it.

10,000 BC – It was bleah for me. Actors were pretty though. Camilla Belle has a gorgeous face even with dirt and weird blue eyes. The story was good, it was the execution that fell short.

So to sum it all up, Atonement kicks all those other movies’ butts. I still want to watch No Country for Old Men, which I haven’t even seen the trailer of.

Earth Hour

 

On 29 March 2008 the Philippines will join countries around the world as we literally “turn the lights out” for Earth Hour — an event that will fuel awareness on climate change and prove that when the people of the world work together, they can make a difference in the fight against global warming.

Earth Hour will take place throughout the Philippines from 8-9 in the evening on Saturday, 29 March 2008. WWF invites you to participate by shutting off lights for 60 minutes, organizing your own “lights-out” event or by forwarding this email to your friends, workmates and family.

Launched in Australia on the 31st of March 2007, Earth Hour moved 2.2 million people and 2100 businesses in Sydney to turn off their lights for one hour. This massive collective effort reduced the city’s energy consumption by 10.2% for one hour. With Sydney icons like the Harbour Bridge and Opera House turning their lights off and unique events such as weddings by candlelight, the world took notice. Inspired by the collective effort of millions of Sydneysiders, many major global cities are joining Earth Hour in 2008, turning a symbolic event into a global movement.

YOUR participation will go a long way in spreading the message that we, as individual droplets working collectively — can create an impetus far more powerful than the mightiest of rivers. For more information, log on to the WWF Earth Hour page at http://www.earthhour.org.

 

If you want to learn more about how else you can help make Earth Hour in the Philippines a success, drop us a line at (632) 920-7931, (632) 920-7923 or (632) 920-7926.

Sasha…

Is in her mid-20s. Is a girl. Loves to write. Loves taking pictures. Vents a lot. Finds her days too boring. Finds herself too sheltered. Wants to meet a faerie, for real. Swears a lot. Knows that's bad. Just might have too dirty a mind.
