A Mind Numbing Day ...

Gosh, how time flies when you're having fun! That saying sure holds true for when you're on holiday. The day just flew by so fast that I hardly know what happen. That could also be because I sat here and blogged practically the whole first half of the day, then took a 3 hour nap and only just woke up. And I'm not in such a great mood right now cos I'm still groggy but the pull of my blog was just too strong. Evil thing really this blog. It owns three quarters of my soul already.

Besides the fact that I'm still groggy and the day just flew by without even me knowing, it was a pretty good holiday. My day started pretty early with the kids making a ruckus and waking both wifey and me up so damn early in the morning. Both of us slept real late last night cos we were both playing those games I downloaded. We actually wanted to sleep in a little bit today but that was not to be the case with the boys.

We planned to go out and look for dogs today but instead ended up blogging cos I had a hordes of assignments to complete so we stayed in and I scrambled to finish all of it with me actually doing 5 posts in my spaceman blog! I could hardly use my brain anymore after finishing all those assignments ... LOL! By the time we finished, it was time for lunch and the boys were already hounding us to take them for lunch.

So, I reluctantly stopped my blogging though I still had tons of assignments yet to complete and took the boys for lunch cos they were on the verge of rioting already! The weather out there was so goddamned hot that the moment I got home, I headed straight to bed to take a short nap which turned out to be a long one which is always the case with me. So, with that, half my holiday just vanished with me doing absolutely nothing constructive at all.

Oh, I mentioned above that we were supposed to go and look at some dogs, right? Well, we're in the midst of searching for a dog. Ever since we saw that dog show a couple of months back, we've been wanting to get one. We're not sure of the model, urrmmm, breed that we're looking for just yet though I'd like one of those huge ones, maybe something along the sleek cool lines of a St. Bernard or the likes of a Great Dane. I'm not into those sissy looking dogs like the Shih Tzu or the equally wussy Poodle!

I hope that when we finally get one, we'll be able to take care of it cos these dogs are pretty high maintenance. I mean we already have two hyperactive boys and adding a dog on our list of things to take care of might be a little daunting. But I won't know if I don't try right? I used to own a dog in my younger days but as I grew older I kinda gave up on them cos I no longer had the time to look after them. I still remember my first dog, I have no idea what breed it was, I think I was about 2 years old or so then. I could remember sitting on him and riding him like a horse. Then one day the fellow upped and ran away. Probably got fed up of being treated like a horse by me ... LOL! For the life of me I can't really remember his name. I think it was Benji but I'm not so sure, hey I was only 2 years old, k?

My second dog was called Tinker and he was this jet black mixed breed of a dog which again I have no idea what since I was about 4 years old at that time. I remember Tinker so vividly cos the first week I had him a puppy, the bum bit my nose and I had to get a damn jab on my butt cos of him! Unfortunately Tinker was run over by a bus one day and I remember crying my eyes out. That was the last dog I had until about 7 years old when my uncle rescued this mongrel from the road side and me and my cousins took turns looking after him. We named him Ringo and he was such a playful fellow. Sometimes just a wee bit too playful. He stayed with us for quite some years until he died of old age one fine day. We were all kinda sad and we held a funeral service for him in the backyard.

That was about the last time I owned any dog and I'm quite skeptical about my abilities to take care of one these days. But wifey and me are so set on wanting to own a dog that we'll share the responsibilities when we eventually do get one. I must make it a point this weekend to go out and look for one. I was supposed to get one before the end of January and now it's going on to February soon and I'm nowhere near to shortlisting any just yet! Oh boy, will you look at the time, it's almost time for American Idol and I haven't even had a shower yet. I guess the shower will have to wait till after the show ... LOL! I've also still got to finish this assignment on Gamefly coupons . I wonder if it's a site for me to download more games ... LOL! Looks like it's going to be another late night again today. Catch you all later folks.

  1. Wowww.. I dunno how you could do so many paid assignments in a day.. I usually give up after 2 and then they'll just end up expired. Hehe..

    Cool! You're getting a dog! You should get a Chihuahua! Then you could go all Paris Hilton on it, maybe naming it 'Sparkles' and splurge on some bling for your 'Sparkles'.. LOL!

  7. Wah you spend so much time blogging. When your kids are older like mine, they'll surely complain. Mine complains about me spending too much time on my work and blog all the time.

    Hey, have you considered a golden retreiver or labrador? They're so good with kids and have a really sweet lovely face.

  11. BT - Actually my two boys love it when wifey and me are blogging cos then they can get up to mischieve without both of us yelling at them ... LOL!

    A labrador sounds like a good choice :D I'll definitely consider that one ...

  12. Tammy - Addictive is a mild way of putting it ... LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Adrian - Yeah, I've seen the price tag of some of those dogs out there. Man, they cost an arm and at least 2 legs buddy! Maybe I should just get a dog like Seansy's Kurap fellow. That was a cool little mongrel of a dog ... LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Loz - Yeah, that's what frightens me. The lifelong commitment! LOL!

    Gee, that's awfully nice of you. I'll be dropping by shortly to claim my award :) Thanks pal.

  15. I would not hesitate to adopt any puppy at SPCA. Mongrels are the smartest and loyal fellas. They don't fall sick so easily too. I can testify.

    ReplyDelete
  16. BT - Actually the SPCA is one of the places we're planning to go. We were told there's lots of puppies there looking for a home and I'm sure we could probably find one.

    And yes, I have to agree, mongrels are sturdy little fellows, My last dog, the one I mentioned called Ringo was a mongrel and he was one hell of a tough dog! :D

  17. Ooh you should get one of those humongo-bungo dogs! What're they called? Great Danes? Something like that. They're mega macho. :D I'm terrified of them, but hey, they do look good. :D

  18. Oh another thing, can I link you? :D

  19. Haizum - That's exactly what I'm looking for but they cost a lot of money la ... now you know why I do so many assignments ... LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Haizum - oh, no problems, go ahead and link me ...

  21. i thought you have forgotten about your search for dogs..yes, high maintainance but you will love them. pls post their pic once you have them..

  22. I think a Golden Retriever or labrador would be a great choice because they are fantastic with kids. They are very naughty as pups though. They chew everything in sight or at least that has been my experience.

    Wow you and wifey must be just about ready to retire in the Bahamas with all those assignments.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Deana - LOL! NO I haven't forgotten. Just been too lazy to look for one. I'll definitely post a pix when I do get one ...

    ReplyDelete
  24. Gypsy - A golden retriever sounds like a good choice. But the cost of those kind of pups here are astronomical! Still on the lookout though ...

    Retire in the Bahamas? Gypsy, Gypsy, Gypsy, if that was only true ... LOL!
