Nothing’s Going on – Nothing…

I haven’t updated my blog not because I was sick, too busy or lazy.

I have absolutely nothing going on in my life.  This is good. This is how I would like my life to be – a life with no drama.  I just want to live everyday life happy and positive.  And I would hope tomorrow will be just as same as today.  Life is good.  Anyway, I didn’t have much to talk about.  That was all.

I plan to go to Costco next week.

Shopping wise? I cannot think of anything else to buy.  I would like to buy a lot of stuff, but they are all luxury items, and I don’t have much money.

I still practice guitar.  I love my new guitar. It’s been almost 1 year, and it’s been a dream.  I still cannot believe I own a real Les Paul, not a fake one.

I am not a good player.  I am very bad, but it’s a lot of fun practicing.  Sometimes when I play, I try to dance like a rock star? When I do that, I really mess up my play.  So, I have to sit tight and concentrate.

NBA season started.
I missed the last episode of "Desperate Housewives" – 🙁
I wonder what happened to Susan. 

I’ve been listening to Christmas music a lot.

I still eat very good.  I eat at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables every day (Mon – Fri).  I don’t eat red meat during the weekdays.

Now I weight myself at 156lb in the morning. (Remember? I used to be 164lb last year).  I stopped running, but I will start running again.  I still can do 10 chin-ups easy.

We have a new employee at work.  This young dude is so incredibly handsome.  He looks like a Calvin Klein model.  I am not kidding.  He just came from Ukraine, so he even has this shy and humble personality with accent.  Girls will go crazy on him (and some guys).

I am not the cutest guy at work anymore. Cry

Anyway…  really, not much going on.  But it’s good.

I enjoy my coffee every morning.  I go to sleep with smile every night.  I love my bed

24 hours a day, my life is being pampered by (semi) luxury items, made it possible by Costco.  For that I am truly Thankful to Costco.  I cannot afford a lot of items if there was no Costco.  Or I’ll have to look everywhere for special discount.  I don’t have time for that.

Anyway, I’m here.  Nothing’s going on… 

I’ll keep in touch.

God bless everyone.  Please take care. 

Chocolates Of the World & European Cookies

I went to Costco tonight. (Blog coming up.)

These Christmas candies are not available after holiday season.  So, I had to stock them up.

Chocolates of the World expires on June 1, 2011.  So, I put one jug in the freezer and the second jug in the refrigerator.  This way, I will enjoy fresh chocolate until the next holiday season.  I’ll make the cookies to last several months.  I couldn’t find experation date on the cookies.  I may have to buy a few more cans of cookies.  My guests love those cookies.  They eat ’em up.

I am not rich.  I am not trying to show off how much money I spend on candy. $80.00 for candy sounds extreme, but they will last long time.  If you look at the entire year, I definitely spend less money on candy than most people.  I don’t even drink soda too often (to save money). 

I would like to stress that I am not trying to show off.  Mm… I guess I am showing off my self control.  Because, I can look at the mountain of candies and not go crazy.

* The chocolates will last 12 months – I guarantee you that.

Please excuse my bad photography, I took the short cut (the easy way)

This is what I did last year.  I bought 4 jugs of Chocolates of the World and put "opening dates" on them.  I still haven’t finished the last jug.

Costco Shopping – October 14, 2010

Jose’s Coffee came to my Costco today.  I spent about 10 minutes there and tasted 2 different coffees.  I know that Pumpkin Spice is a popular holiday coffee.  But I find Butterscotch Toffee more sentimental.  I bought a bag of Butterscotch Toffee coffee.

I know I will enjoy the coffee throughout this Holiday season.  I was worried that I would spend this holiday season without Butterscotch Toffee coffee.  Jose’s Coffee is going to complete my holiday season 2010.  I am so happy.

Of course, I bought a bunch of candies.  (See separate blog)

I bought a set of fancy soaps for Christmas gift for my friend.  I figured girls like that kind of stuff.  I don’t know what I’ll do if she doesn’t like this…  I guess I’ll give her some cash.

Coupon saved $6.00 (Vitamin B & Dove soaps)

As I was checking out, 2 Costco employees made comments about amount of candies I had.

 

Going to Costco Alone (without a friend)

I plan to go to Costco alone tomorrow.

To me, there is nothing like shopping at Costco alone. As some of you already know, I have mastered the art of living alone. I know how to have quality time alone. I practice music, work on personal projects, exercise, cook, & etc..

One bad thing about living alone is that I will die alone. If I get lost in the mountain, nobody will look for me. Yikes… Anyway…

Costco shopping is one of those activities I enjoy more when I am alone. My friend enjoys going to Costco with me, not alone. She will find out that I went to Costco without her, because she will see refrigerator full of Costco stuff. I will tell her that my staple items ran out. And I will ask her to go to Costco with me (this weekend).

But, I will not tell her how much fun I had at Costco alone.

Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy female companionship. But, to me, Costco is extra enjoyable when I am there alone. It’s just me and Costco, with nobody else.

I can checkout new products without feeling rushed. I can watch chickens spinning at rotisserie oven for 5 minutes and feel no guilt. I can change my mind and go back to the isle I visited 20 minutes ago. It’s a crazy good time.

I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s Costco shopping. I shall treat myself with a hot dog.

Happy shopping.

Sign of Getting Old

A definite sign of getting old (and grumpy)

Have you seen this latest viral video on youtube? (below)

It’s about Cedu Pacific Airline’s Flight Attendants dancing the emergency procedure.

This is the hottest video. It’s been viewed about 7 million times so far.

But, I find this video FREAKIN’ annoying.
FREAKIN’ annoying… with a Capital "F"

I mean, it annoyed me so much that I had to write about it.

  • I try to take a trip somewhere.  I sit down in the plane and hope nobody would bother me.  And they blast crappy music in my ears.  That’s FREAKIN’ annoying.
    • I will not rattle pots and pans by your ear.  I will not whistle Yankee Doodle Dandy in the plane.  You don’t blast crap in my ears.  Deal?  Sheesh~!
  • They go over the emergency procedures as a joke.  So, what happens when something actually happens?  Will people remember what to do?
  • About the girls and dancing? – Not cute.
  • And this is the the hottest video?  I would rather watch Dos Equis commercial

Freakin’ annoying, I tells ya.   I am old.

PS.

For that matter, I hate "Flash Mob" of any kind.  People arrange time and place.  They would go to public places such as train station or super market.  And, with a signal, all those people would "Freeze" (stop moving) for a minute or two.  And that’s supposed to be hip.  I find that extremely annoying.

"Hey, everyone, look at me.  I’m in public place and I am frozen.  Look at us, we are not moving.  It’s strange huh?  Are we human or robots? Look at us, we are different.  We are unique.  Please love us."

Pathetic…
