Mars dropped by the shop today with Alison and Armi. They went to Bonito's to eat lunch (treat ni Mars kasi bday nya bukas! Happy bday Mars. ^_^) and I followed after giving Sam his milk. After much kwentuhan the topic turned to computer games. And I started reminiscing....

There are three games I really got into (aside from minesweeper and Zuma...hehe): Sims, Tropico and Heroes. There were other games I liked but not as much as those 3. I liked Sim City, Zeus, Populus (which I sucked at), Utopia, Neopets and all those windows games. I tried playing Starcraft and those bang bang guns games but I sucked at anything real time kasi natataranta ako lagi since my reflexes seem to be really slow. I also played Oz, the first game level-up games released, and Ragnarok , that gaming phenomenon in the Philippines where you do nothing but click your mouse to kill a monster and somehow feel satisfied when you level up without having to use much of your gray matter. Oh how I love games but nothing comes close to my top three.

With Sims it s all about the houses (Oh beautiful houses) and having a great virtual career. In Sims I got my dream of becoming a lounge singer ( I made sure that that Sim didnt advance beyond being a lounge singer), I became a criminal, an astronaut, a soccer super star and alot of other things. But mostly its about the house. I love beautiful houses and I dream of having a few of my own . Maybe that's why I love watching Extreme Home Makeover so much.

Where was I?

**train of thought interrrupted again -- baby woke up, typing with Sam in my arms

Ok so i'm not in the mood to write anymore. Basta all i know is that Tropico is a real cool game -- kaya pahiramin mo na ko ng installer mo Mars. As for heroes it the only game that i got so addicted to that i was always able to finish my chores just so my mom won't realize i've been playing the whole day. Its also the only one that I dreamt of repeatedly. Kaya i have to someday play the last expansion pack that i never got to play.

And to end this jumbled, unedited post I have to say that although my posts will most probably be always like this (full of interruptions, thus stilted) its worth it to see my baby sleeping peacefully and to smell his smelly crown.

Life is soooo unfair. It took me two weeks and some days to stop bleeding after giving birth and now my monthly period has come. Darn it! I deserve a break from rampaging hormones, ugly zits, painful cramps and utter discomfort!!! I HATE BEING A GIRL. Aaaaaarrrrrggghhh!

Angel's Post

Call me narcissistic but this must be one of the best blog post I've ever read. Its not because its beautifully written (though it is) or because its about my family. It touched me because it echoed whats in my heart.

To friends who maybe far but will always be there for you to share your life with.

Thank you for sharing my heartbeat. Thank you for knowing us but choosing to see the beautiful side.

According to Jae's post I have sex at least every other day with whole day sessions at a time. Whoa!!!

I saw this funny product for dads and moms at baby center.

Catch Up Post

I have been neglecting this blog so badly that i have so much catching up to do.

Here are some blog topics i never found time or enough motivation to type up:

1. Birth pains and trauma - Yes Mars, Mrs Oblepias was correct. It is an 11.

2. Postpartum blues - Usual bleh about depression. Boring....

3. My birthday and Mark's surprise - Very simple surprise over breakfast but i was really surprised.

4. My mom's daughter is a mom - This one is highly personal and complicated. I dont think I'll ever post whatever my thoughts are on this one.

5. Little blessings that count - Stuff like Armi dropping in and studying here just when i needed company. Or a short chat with Nikki sa chikka just when i felt like crying. Or my baby making cute little noises just when i was getting bored out of my mind. Or Mark making a little more than expected for a little odd job just when we needed money.

6. Homecoming - I didnt go to my grade school's alumni homecoming and of course regretted it. I know Mark, sometimes you know me more than myself. I should arrange a gimmik with my grade school classmates...

7. Our bundle of joy - Every little thing Sam does that makes me crazy. I love that little alien of mine.
