We have all been asked of this quiz question before: What Super Power do you wish you had? I still don't know what my answer should be. Flying? Mind control? Teleporting? "The ability to eat as much as I want without gaining any weight". Yeah. That's what I am thinking right at this moment. You [...]

My mom and dad called last Friday. Actually my mom did. Mom's always the one that calls. And she always calls around 9 pm when it is the absolutely most friggin' chaotic in the house. And she always pleads innocence saying she cannot figure out the time difference. And she always asks, "Have you eaten [...]

sacré bleu

I rushed to the Religious Ed with Mr. Monk as I always do on most Saturday mornings. I then walked to the 6th grade classroom to inform the Catechist that my oldest would not be there that day. We got to talking about his son. "...He has a Ph.D. in [something akin to Rocket Science]..." [...]

Sometimes I wonder whether the teachers talk about the parents amongst themselves. I would probably be known as "Trouble Maker". My favorite moment was when I confronted approached the principal at the Thanksgiving Feast: "Could I safely assume that the headpieces the children are wearing are 'turkeys' and not 'head dresses'?" I used the quotation [...]

I probably don't need to publish this post on my blog. It is not appealing. It is not good writing. It will not make you laugh out loud. It is not even a proper rant. Besides, it is friggin' long - I am amazed at how much I tapped out on my iPhod, and tedious. [...]

We are all in this

Mr. Monk, my 7-year-going-on-50-old child, asked me last Friday at dinner, "Mom, is it true that you would not be here if Martin Luther King did not give THAT speech?" I was caught by surprise, I'll be completely honest. Although I understand the impact Dr. King's speech has had on the American history, culture and [...]

By now everyone of us have heard of what Pat Robertson has to say about the earthquake that just about leveled Haiti. I cannot help it, here is the highlight of his point: "They were under the heel of the French. You know, Napoleon III and whatever. And they got together and swore a pact [...]

The Golden Rule

I can't remember exactly what started us discussing the Golden Rule at the dinner table. Probably had something to do with the constant bickering between the two of them. "Remember the Golden Rule? What is the Golden Rule?" I wheedled. "I know: it's something like 'Love thy neighbors'." My oldest has the knack of answering [...]

WTF Wednesday: Eye? Aye!

It is Thursday (and actually soon will be Friday...) Yes, I am cheating again by backdating my post. But it IS Wednesday somewhere in the world, right? Oh. Who cares. It is a WTF post by me when I've got my WTF glasses on. (Yeah, this line is for you my Wicked Kitchen Lady...) So [...]

Here is another edition of I Comment Therefore I Am, following the footsteps of the great Unknown Mammi. In this era of information overload, in a lot of the news blogs, especially political news blogs, comments are often the best part. Sometimes the scariest part. The comment section is like a looking glass through which [...]
