This is my day-to-day blog on BigCloset TopShelf, as I make my way through life as a newly-minted girl.
Mostly inconsequential, sometimes interesting, almost always borrring.
Still, reading my shi... umm stuff is more interesting than watching paint dry...

For the past couple of weeks, my roommate and I have been sort-of shut-ins, owing to my lawyer's recommendation to stay in for a while and my innate scaredy-cat nature. No going out, jogging, shopping, or eating out. The both of us were having a bit of cabin fever. Being all by myself was nothing new - being by myself didn't used to be a big deal. But, somehow, it is now.

I've been in the hospital since Monday, so I've been incommunicado for a while. No internet or phone calls. Doctor’s orders. Yeah, bummer. I had to stay in the hospital for observation, as well as have some tests. You see, I had a concussion at work last Monday morning. I got beat up.

Nope. This is not a commercial for a post in the Stories section or something like that, but a real, honest-to-goodness blog. So be cool.

Anyway...

Yesterday, I had my first jog in weeks. You would think that having started all of this jogging more than five months ago, it would be less of a novelty. But it still is, and I still enjoy it as a welcome change from my day-to-day, and not just a way to keep healthy. And I guess all of us have a bit of an exhibitionist streak (though I don't mean I go around jogging in the nude lol),

Blog #44: Back home

I arrived home at around 1PM yesterday, tidied up my place, did some laundry, went to my folks to drop off some "pasalubong", had some dinner out, and tried to get as much sleep as I can to combat jetlag & to recover from the more-than-twenty-four-hour flight (not to mention two transfers).

Glad to be home.

Anyway, I'm gonna post a long blog this weekend with a lot of pics (which I will "anonymize" - hope you guys won't mind), that I hope you'll like. Not too many Manila pics, but lots of pics of my Palawan weekend (which was mostly swimming, swimming and more swimming).

Hi, this is Andrea, filling in for Bobbie! She's finishing up her stay in the Philippines with a return on Monday and she'll be back here on Tuesday afternoon, owing to the nearly day long flight. (A shout out to her girls in the chatroom!) This weekend, she and some of her colleagues will be going either to somewhere in the south to the Palawan Islands,

There are four things I'm putting in tonight's blog: one - I've been in the Philippines over five days now, on a business trip for my company, to help set up a new call center; two - I'm getting to know the place and the people (and the shopping!) and am enjoying it so far; three - there was a metro-wide blackout due to downed power lines because of a typhoon, and: four - apparently I look like someone named Nancy.

I'm going to the Far East this afternoon. There are four of us flying to the Philippines this afternoon. Our flight leaves at 5:30pm later, so last night, I packed a my one and only wheelie bag with just five outfits, a couple of heels (in black, of course, so it'll match with virtually anything) a couple of pajamas, and just enough underwear for a week (plus make-up, toiletries, brushes n combs and everything else a girl needs).

I have no one to jog with this morning, so I'm skipping my regular Saturday jog. Which is a good thing coz I intend to write an unusually-long blog today. Got my laptop, a mug of chocolate, a comfortable couch, so here goes.

I got in early yesterday morning - I was in the office by eight (It's sorta become like a routine lately, this coming to work early, 'Coz I was a little anxious about our project - in a couple of days, it'll be ready for application testing, and then UAT.), so I decided to surf a while and log on to BCTS and my other favorite sites as well as check my email while I waited for the troops to come in. And lo and behold, one of my BCTS friends, whose name I will not mention, was online and logged on in Yahoo. (See, Aunt Andrea? I didn't mention your name... ooops! heehee)

I went to my mom n dad's this Sunday, for Mother's day, and it was just a normal Mother's day. Nice lunch, regular, light family talk. The expected mother's day gifts. Cake and coffee, and then home. Very boring. Very routine. In other words, it was wonderful.

Yep, I'm back from my self-imposed vacation from writing blogs. And I am enough of an egotist to assume that people missed my blogs. (Yes, indeed, I DO suffer from delusions of self-importance. Heehee)

Had a bit of a "thing" happen, and it's made me think about taking a bit of a break from the world of the Big Closet. But be cool - the blog (and me) is coming back to the Top Shelf in about a week. In the meantime, have a cup of coffee, or in this case, a mug of hot chocolate, on me.
