Recession fears

There are times when news certainly brings you down. More than Heath's death, there are some things that are equally painful to hear. Like this one from, sigh, Yahoo! Of all companies!

Came across this great article (really!) on things to do in case you lose your job this year. Or if you care about finding one.

One more thing. It would be easy to say that we all should "live within our means", but I do believe it's true (however difficult). Here's a nice article on care of personal finances, as recession sure seems just about here already.

Last Night. Lost Knight. Dark Knight.

Last night. Zaki just cajoled me again into buying her a new 'Dark Knight' (circa Batman Begins) figure amidst the surprised looks from the salesladies at SM who kept offering her princess' items and other cute characters instead. Never thought Heath would bring a whole new meaning to the item and the day past.

Lost Knight. Ledger appeared as a Knight, remember? But simply brilliant in Brokeback Mountain!

Dark Knight. After Spidey and Silver Surfer: Fantastic Four, Zaki and I had reason to be excited watching a movie again soon that we've repeatedly watched the new trailers available. Snicker, cackle, maniacal laugh and all.

Buy, bye

One of the few words, albeit annoying, that Zaki has already mastered. And taking the cue from her, upon seeing this news, Buy!

Reminded me of 'Finding Neverland'. Great movie while Zaki loved the theme.

Bless Krispy Kreme, Go Nuts Donuts + Gatorade

No offense to Dunkin Donuts (my wife and I do love Bavarian!), but I really need to extend our gratitude to Krispy Kreme, Go Nuts Donuts and Zaki's official beverage aside from milk in times of trouble, Gatorade (Tropical Fruit Flavor?/ Red one) for keeping her up the week after she got out from the hospital.

You see even though she looked quite well by Christmas day already, Zaki still was having watery stools for about 5 more days upon checking out of the hospital. She wasn't eating and was complaining of aching tummy - although stool exams were negative. Good thing she kept eating Donuts and drinking Gatorade. It saved all of us the horror of having her put on IV again and more importantly abetting any CAH related crisis. Slowly, she finally felt really good by the New Year. So were we.

Uhmm, one other thing. Prayers did help, too.
