Our Weekend Memoirs: First things first Scroll down for Sunday Stealing
A nasty cold was mangling my nose into a mound of peeling red on new year's day. I fought it with antibiotics and sneezed through the first day of 2011. Same old, same old except that I like to think this is the way I am saying goodbye for the first time to a favorite past-time.
Where Miranda Priestley would have called me an incubus of viral plague, C hang out with me in a resort town to see the day go by. This is my first coffee of the year.

C's first detox food and her first dessert, which I pecked at occasionally. The nose was still stuffy. C was brave.

We proceeded to Hilton where we drank the night away listening to live music. If I didn't remember that I used to frequent Hilton twelve years ago, my margarita would probably have tasted new. Oh well.

Time to get back to reality. Face another year of crap. Until the next getaway then.

Sunday Stealing: The First 2011 Alphabet Meme
Scroll down for Our Weekend Memoirs

Today we ripped this meme off a blogger named Neil Turner at the blog Neil Turner from the blog Neil Turner's Blog (duh). Neil is from Yorkshire, England. He said he stole it from Troy. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time.

Cheers to all of us thieves!

A is for Age: that age when they say life begins and it could be 1-90

B is for Beer of choice: I'm allergic to beer

C is for Career: procrastination

D is for favourite Drink: cold tea water

E is for Essential item you use everyday: lappy

F is for Favourite song at the moment: I'm not in love so don't forget it

Sunday Stealing: The Dwight Twilley Meme
Scroll down for Our Weekend Memoirs

Today we ripped this meme off not from a blogger but from a website that does (among other things) celebrity interviews. On Friday they asked 20 questions to recording artist Dwight Twilley. The site is called Pop Matters and you can read the original interview here. We enjoyed the questions so much that we decided to steal them! We only did very slight editing to make a couple of the questions more universal. We hope you enjoy latest our and greatest! Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

1. The latest book or movie that made you cry? Miss Potter

2. The fictional character most like you? Tinker Bell. Or so my Ugly Duckling cousin believes

3. The greatest album, ever? My Single Life Album

4. Star Trek or Star Wars? Why? I don't know eitherof them

5. Your ideal brain food? Cashew nuts and raisins

6. Everyone is proud of a certain accomplishment, which one for you?? I'll leave this blank until the son I am raisin…

Sunday Stealing: The Baker's Meme
Scroll down for Our Weekend Memoirs

Today we ripped this meme off a blogger named Reymos at the blog My World is Getting Smaller Every Day. He states he got it from Carl Dorsey at Iron Cook: American. (and Carl stated it was written by Thomas Baker, thus today's title). But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

Note: There were a bunch of rules and mandates that we were suppose to give but Bud lost them. Or hid them, either way it is his bad.

Cheers to all of us thieves!

1. If you could interview anyone on your blog (alive or dead) who would you chose and why? Perhaps JA. I want to know what she thinks of the evolution of her fave subject

2. What do you feel is your strength as a blogger? answering memes (lol)

3. Can you share a little bit about yourself that you have not already mentioned on your blog? I am bra…

Our Weekend Memoirs: Palenke de Saraburi
Please scroll down for Sunday Stealing


Those sunflowers I posted on Tuesday's My World meme was a bit of a long, full Sunday I had with friends last weekend. I'm sharing snapshots on an installment basis as parts of the day held different descriptions.

We went out to explore Saraburi Market in the morning. It was windy and our hats were in danger of being blown off our heads. We wandered between stalls and found strings to fix the flying hat situation. There! 3 baht a piece and the hats stay put.

Manao taw rai ka? (How much is the lemon?)This is our Pacman-Margarito breakfast. Munch, swallow, brace for the punches. Now if I could have the abs of those cheerleader trio I would be glad to skip this yumminess.
But I don't so I'll settle for a low pitch Philippine national anthem. I wonder who is she....
Pacquiao and Margarito are not roosters jabbing each other's guts out, but neither can I stand blood sport. It was quite a relief w…

Our Weekend Memoirs: Halloween on Khao San
Please scroll down for Sunday Stealing

Perhaps more than usual, Khao San Road, advertised as the gateway to Southeast Asia, was alive with the dead last Sunday. This was my first time to ever be in a halloween party.

I wanna pour Bloody Mary into that silly, gaping mouth

On FB I asked, "does he need a mammogram, doc?" The reply was "maybe the girls beside him...." Wahahah!

Edward and Jacob didn't show up. If they did I swear I would have gone bloody bonkers, a nosebleed at least and worse than these decomposing kids at most.


This baby has gotten away with curfew.

Seated at last with our halloween chow.
