life is uncertain. eat cake first.



Four reasons why I should eat a chocolate covered, cherry topped-cake, slice it up in even pieces and then share it with you lovely people are:

Number 1: It was my dad's birthday last October 28. He's 61 and still the man of the house. He gets his energy from his micro naps and that trusty radio of his. Oh and from the no-pork diet, too. H'e just amazing and I hope he continues to be. I pray for him good health always.

Number 2: There's a 3-day fiesta celebration here at our little town in Consolacion and I am not out to ride the rides because of fear that hinges will make screechy noisea, some screws will go loose and I will dive into my untimely horrific death! That's my paranoia talking right now and that's what I get for watching all those Final Destination Series.

Number 3: I finally finished that IELTS exam. The Speaking exam was smooth and easy but the written exams went by way too fast. I just hope that essay I wrote under 20 minutes made any sense. I was shaking so bad when the invigilator told me I had 20 minutes left. At least, I finished it all but I really hope that I got it right. I'll know the results on Nov. 12. Did you hear that? That was the sound of my big fat red pan encircling that date. haha

Lastly:  I'll be staying home and getting some Tim Burton and Jack Skellington loving as I watch Nightmare Before Christmas. We don't really dress up and that's fine with me.

I want to share this story, click HERE, I found over the internet about the other side of the Disney classic, Snow White. This gave me the creeps right after because I felt sorry for the stepmother now. If you have the time, go ahead. Happy reading.

I wish you all a Happy Halloween! Have fun! Oh and grab a cake on your way out. :)

Happy Birthday to your Father Hun :)
That cake looks so yummy! I love cake. Especially vanilla cake...
I'm sure you did well on your exam! You'll have to let us know Nov 12 if the results came in as well as you expected.
I love the movie Nightmare Before Christmas :) Tim Burton is great!
Oh and about the comment you left on my blog, if you don't have an Aldo in Cebu, I think they sell similar shoe inserts at Pharmacies or department stores that sell shoes.

Happy Halloween! That cake looks delicious. As for my 'barefoot bowls' post, I don't really know how to describe it, but if you google "lawn bowls" it might explain the sport better :)
