imho is just a polite way to say I know you don’t give a hoot what I think but I’m going to say it anyway

Can’t keep my mouth shut

Romney was asked to defend his position on gender equality at work place at the town hall "debate" tonight. Even though I enjoy the snarky tweets, in all fairness, here is what Romney said (excerpt from L.A. Times) Romney countered that, as governor of Massachusetts, he had a stellar record when it came to hiring [...]

I feel bad for Mitt Romney…

Kind of. For about 10 seconds. It's tough to be a politician nowadays what with the ever shrinking size of recording devices and of course, the Internet. Oftentimes in this hyper-connected, over-sharing, real-time-news-update-by-the-second, meme-obsessed world, WWW is the kingmaker. At the same time, it could also easily topple a career. (Ironically, the same world is [...]

  Alas nowadays it seems that the eye of the beholder is an one-eye monster, (ok, NOT that one-eye monster), with its narrow, single-minded vision towards "What sells", deciding what men want, and therefore dictating what women want (because we all want to become what men want, and yes, the assumption/implicit acceptance of heterosexual hegemony is [...]

Disobedience

Before we got married, The Husband and I talked about whether we should raise our children Catholic, his mother's religion. I said "his mother's religion" because like countless Catholics, he is twice-a-year Catholic. He gives up something for Lent (that usually make me exclaim, "Jesus died for you sin and you are giving up THAT [...]

The Yellow Invasion

By now you probably have heard of "The Super Bowl commercial you probably did not see".  Former Rep. Pete Hoekstra's campaign advertisement aired during Super Bowl features a beautiful Chinese woman (or, as he called her later when he was made to explain himself, "a Chinese girl"), complete with a straw hat, bicycle, rice paddy, and [...]

WTF Wednesday

I have been thinking that I should make this a weekly feature. There are so many WTF moments, don't you think? But sometimes when I finally found time, it was NOT Wednesday any more, so I waited, and then I missed another Wednesday... Anyway, 5 minutes before midnight. STILL Wednesday. And I always have the [...]

Introverts are not shy.

// My blogging friend Nance over at Mature Landscaping posted about the new issue of Time Magazine with a cover story titled: "The Upside Of Being An Introvert (And Why Extroverts Are Overrated)." Oh yeah. Oh yeah. It's about time! I have written about Introverts, or rather, the misunderstanding, mishandling, and under-appreciation of this group of people in the [...]

Hello, there. I thought I'd resurface with an installment of WTF Wednesday. I hope this serves as a nice counter balance to the holly jolly Christmas cheer, as manifested by the non-stop Christmas music ringing in your ears, that's making you, even though you don't want to admit it, a little bit dizzy. Or maybe [...]

I first published this post in 2009 and reposted it in November 2010. Every year, as early as towards the end of October, I found myself aghast coming face to face with Christmas merchandise and sometimes even MUSIC when the leaves are still sporting brilliant red and yellow. Seriously? What the F people? What about [...]

    Or you can watch her in action.   Or you can read her words in plain text: There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. Nobody. You built a factory out there? Good for you. But I want to be clear: you moved your goods to market on the [...]
