Day Of Shopping Madness

For the record; I really dislike shopping. I have never shopped this late for Christmas and I realized how much more I dislike shopping at this time. The crowds and lines are crazy. Not to mention the selection of things.

So, I slept about three hours last night and got up at eight to shop. Didn't get home here until about 8. It's currently about 5am. So, yay for lack of sleep, right? Went into our little town to do bank and grocery stuff before I headed out with my grandparents for a full day of shopping.

First up we stopped in at the dollar store to pick up a few things. I managed to get something there for my father and his wife. As my grandma was looking at some things Hot by the Wonder Girls came on my ipod (Thanks Pam.) and there is a part of the song in the dance where they do, what I call, the 'butt wag'. I backed up to my grandma and started doing the dance. She started to tell me to stop coz people were watching. (Like I care?) It embarrassed her, but she laughed. I always do this stuff. She got used to it.

Also, Bo Peep Bo Peep by T-ara came on my ipod and the first time I heard it... instead of hearing 'Bo Peep, Bo Peep, Bo Peep' I heard 'Fuck me, Fuck me, Fuck me.' It came on my ipod while at the store and I had my grandma listen to it. Her jaw hit the floor and I cracked up telling her 'They are saying Bo Peep!'.

Hit up the mall after that. I went in while my grandparents went and did their thing. Fought my way into Hot Topic to look for some things. I spent a while in there browsing over the shirts. Apparently it was buy one novelty T and get one half off. Guess who got a Christmas prezzy? Haha. I never get anything new, so I am pretty excited to have a new JTHM shirt. Picked up something for my bro there too. I swear it took me forever to get something for her. Got in a long line and paid.

Bounced out of Hot Topic and headed to Borders.I never realized I could spend so damn much time in that store. I started out looking for a DVD for my girl. Which, they didn't have and also costs $23 to friggen order. Then somehow I went to look for the Gay/Lesbian section and they moved it on me. So, I had to go ask this guy and he was like 'Games? Those are over--' 'No, gay and lesbian literature.' Then there was a bit of an awkward moment and he pointed it out. I was very, very disappointed in Borders. Their Gay/Lesbian literature section is bare. It used to take up two full book shelfs. Now it just takes one and the bottom three are just with the cover facing out and spaced a few inches apart. While I was browsing over what little they had this group of boys went back and loudly stated 'Ew, gay and lesbian!' and ran away giggling. I just rolled my eyes at them and went back to my business. I was very happy to see the Gay and Lesbian magazines in the store. They had The Advocate, Curve, and LOTL. I browsed the pages on those before wandering elsewhere. Then I wandered to the travel section and look at the Asian travel books. Somehow ended up in the foreign language section and in line with a Tagalog book. I was shocked to see it was there. They never have anything Philippines related. I acted like someone else was gonna take that book (there was only one). Which was kinda dumb coz I know that wasn't gonna happen.

As I was on my way to the restroom in Borders I seen these two ladies sitting at a table taking money for a kitty shelter. I dug all the change out of my pocket and dumped it into their little bowl. The one lady's face lit up and she exclaimed, " That's so nice of you! Thank you, sir!" I just grinned and told her she was welcome. Before I left the bathroom I dug a dollar out of my wallet and gave that to them when I walked back by. The lady's face lit up again and she started graciously thanking me. I wonder if she was making up for the gender confusion?

Went across the street from the mall and into Barnes and Nobels yet again looking for the movie for my girl. Which, it cost a whole $25. Darn foreign movies being so expensive. I ended up flipping through the CDs to see if maybe I could find something. I did, but wasn't sure. I ended up passing that up. Browsed over the manga section seeing if anything interested me and then walked to the other side of the store to the Gay/Lesbian literature. Barnes and Nobels owns Borders when it comes to that. They had a really good selection of Fiction and Non Fiction books. I seen one that really got my attention and I flipped through. It was called HerScopes: A Guide To Astrology for Lesbians by Charline Lichtenstein. (I love astrology, fyi.)It was a bit freaky how true what it said about my relationship pairing was. It said that my sign is the worrier, the one that works at home while the partner works at the office, affectionate to the partner. Then when I read the reverse it said my girl's sign to mine. It said shed tend to be in the office with my sign at home and also said she'd go out for a night without ever bothering to contact her partner and let her know.. leaving her partner up all night worrying. I got a few weird looks for being in that section but at least no one said anything. I should of checked their magazines too. I forgot.

Somehow I ended up in the craft store with my grandma coz she was looking for a small Santa hat for a doll I fondly call - 'The Bride of Chucky'. As we walked past one isle I stopped coz I seen a kid walk by that I knew and I thought 'Tony?' out loud trying to remember his name. Well, my grandma decided to -yell- 'TONY!' He turned around and I wanted to smack her. I barely ever talked to this kid when I was in school. He was like three grades ahead of me. I told him we had math class and sat next to each other. He asked my name and I told him and he went 'Yeah, I remember you. You got a totally different style now!' And just sorta started talking about how he likes how I dress. I think he was hitting on me. Ayy... We talked for a few before saying bye.

As my grandma and I rounded the back of the store I seen a friend of mine (Ok, my ex's brother's wife, but those are just mere technicalities). I went up and hugged her and we got to talk a bit about how things are going. She remembers me by the damn good fudge I made them for Christmas a couple years ago. It was one of the first things she said to me. I hope thats a good thing. Haha. She said she reads my blog updates to hey, shout out to Jaimi!

I also started doing the 'Hot' butt wag in the store and my grandma kept telling me people were watching me. I did it to her one time and it scared her and she yelled. Some guy turned around and sorta started laughing.

Ended up at Best Buy and bought my girl something that I now have to return after waiting forever in line to pay for it. Haha. Turns out it isn't what she was so interested in. I'll just get my money back and go invest in something else. She is the most impossible woman to shop for, I swear. She never talks about things she wants, likes, or even hints. When I try to ask her she refuses to give me any ideas. I thought up an idea and talked it over with Pammyboo a bit. Seems like it's an ok idea, right? I hope... Haha.

In the next couple days I gotta get back to the mall, Best Buy, and a couple other of our stores to dig up something for my girl. S I hope the store has everything I have in mind for her. I might be forced to re-replan if not. Shopping for her could be the possible death of me. I wrote quite a bit, dang.

Something I recorded for my girl a few days ago.

1234... I love you

Now that Christmas Eve and Christmas are so near; what are your final plans on how you'll spend it? Did you get all your shopping done early or are you last minute shopping? What's on your wish list?

Oh, hai thar, sir!

DuAce Thanksmas

Thanksgiving has been over for a while now and I've had a few people ask for me to write about how that went. It wasn't very eventful so I have been putting off writing until I had something else to say.

The night before Thanksgiving I was in the kitchen with my grandma making all the sweets. She had already cooked a cherry cheesecake pie and a pumpkin pie before I got started. I ended up making brownies and lemon bars. I had started the topping mix for the lemon bars when my grandma realized my grandfather hadn't gone to the store like he said. So, that left me with a mix I had to stir for about a little over an hour. I was very thankful when he came home and I could finish that and the pumpkin pie. It was interesting trying to cram everything into the refrigerator after. Thanksgiving day I got up, ate, and then took a nap on the couch while my cat laid on top of me. Woke up and watched television with my grandparents. They are totally obsessed with that show 'Ghost Whisperer'. I've watched it a few with them and it is sorta interesting. Anyone else watch?

Now we got this next holiday that is coming up that goes by the name of Christmas. Honestly, I am not looking forward to it. I think back to how things were the year before at this time, all the promises made, and all the things that were supposed to happen that never did; it kills my Christmas spirit. There was only one thing I wanted last year and it is the same thing I want this year. I know you very likely aren't reading this, but that doesn't change a thing. I have my grandma and my father trying to get me to tell them some things I want for Christmas. They can't seem to accept the fact that there isn't anything I want. I keep being pressured to tell them something. So, as I write this I am currently blasting Kpop and head desking over something to tell them. I really never have looked forward to Christmas in years and years. More so any more since I have to go to my father's house. Which, is really the only time of the year I ever do go there. I'd be happy if I never had to see that place again.

Wow, that is a bit gloomy for this blog, eh?

I got some Christmas shopping I have to do yet. Have about maybe six people to buy for this year and no money to do it on. Cheers for being broke, right? Haha. I need to round up ideas from these people too.

The last few nights have been pretty cool. Generally I don't ever talk or participate in the Skype conferences. My bro and I got started one night and now it seems like we are the life of Skype days. Haha. DuAce bromance has been working it. (That feels really awkward to write.) We might have a Facebook debut for everyone that is interested. Just started on things last night and it is pretty plain so far. We are sorta looking for someone who would want to be amazingly awesome and draw D and myself and someone to do up a little logo for us. So, if anyone out there is reading and good with the drawing and paintshop skills, leave me a comment. DuAce will love you much.

To close this one out I am looking for someone to draw/photoshop a logo for DuAce


How are you going to be spending your Christmas? What do you wish for?

Take care everyone.

Pink Bear Rant

It has been a while since I posted anything on here. I haven't really had much to say or write about.

If you are a fan of the Twilight series then you will be interested in this. My friend, Ana, from Pink Bear Fad is holding one of her monthly give aways. She is making her own Alice Cullen fingerless gloves. All you have to do is hop on over to her blog here on blogspot give her a follow and leave her a comment. Also, she does ship international, but you have to pay that price yourself. If you really want the gloves and don't win she is also selling them on her store. (Links are available on her blog.) So, go give it a look over at http://pinkbearfad.blogspot.com/

This next piece is an unedited rant I posted some place previously and thought I'd get it out and share here.

Rant Of The Day: Got talking to my grandma about being gay. According to her 'It is just a feeling and you don't know until you are sexually with someone'

I am completely blown away by her saying that. It is beyond me how sex equates love or more-so sex over rides feelings. And that you can only base how you feel about someone if you have been sexually active with them. So sex voids or confirms true feelings according to her. I wonder if I told her I like this boy named John Doe... if she would say 'Well, wait a minute. You can't know for sure what you feel is really right unless you have sex with him.' I think not. It bothers me how gay = sex. If you are gay sex must be brought into the situation. When sex has nothing to do with real feelings and nothing to do with love. Sex should not confirm love, but sex should be a product of love. Love should not be a result of sex. Sex should be a result of love. Actually, if it is a result of love then it should be classified as making love above be labeled as sex.

Her statement also would void out people who take a chastity vow, vow of abstinence, or simply want to wait until marriage. By that rule you are marrying out of unstable/unknowing feelings because you have not been sexually active with said person. So, when the wedding night comes and the couple eventually does have sex. Uh-oh... what happens when because of sex they find out they don't care about each other? Wasted money, divorce, wasted wedding, wasted years, et cetera. That would mean those people should get married just for the sex in order to see if they really love each other? That when two people have mutual feelings that they should immediately jump into bed and have sex to confirm feelings? Ay, her statement is just completely absurd to me.

I did much more ranting after that, but it was conversation between myself and others. I'd post it, but I don't want to drag anyone else into this.

Take care everyone.

Halloween Treats

Firstly, I want to tell everyone to have a great Halloween. If you have got some plans or a costume you want to share drop it in my comments. I'm interested to read how everyone has decided to spend it. I still have no Halloween plans as of yet.

There is nothing I had in mind for this blog. I can't say anything interesting enough has been going on with me. I have been cleaning for the past two days and nights. Rounding up some things I want to sell off and some things I hate to see go, but I need the money. While cleaning I remembered how some were interested in seeing more photos. I thought I would make this more of a photo entry and show off a bit of my dorky side.





My candle and incense station.


I'm sure you all know who Buddha is.


N64, PC, Gamecube, Xbox, PS2, Wii, Gameboy, DS, Gameboy Advanced games. Not all of my video games are there. I have SNES, NES, and Sega games boxed up in my closet.


My old collection of Nintendo Power magazines and a few strategy guides which are always interesting to read.


First shelf has my HD converter box, a switch box, and my DVD player. Second is my xbox, a couple games, and memory cards. Third on the left is a PS2, a PS2, a wii, and a gamecube. Right xbox 360, and an SNES. Between them are a DS, Gameboy Advanced SP, Two Gameboy Colors, and a Gameboy Pocket.


A mixed stack of DVDs and video games.


My collection of Anime action figures. Dragonball Z, Pokemon, Digimon, and a Clive Barker limited edition figure that I am thinking of putting for sale.


More Pokemon and Digimon with Snake and some Gundam. Theres a couple Lord Of The Ring goblets in the corner. (Note: Don't pay attention to the bong. I don't smoke and I don't condone it.)

So, I hope you all enjoy the random bit I decided to show you. I have to say I posted this mainly for Tsukita who wanted me to post these pictures and to my bro, D, since we are both awesome dorks.

I am also still looking for those interested in a Lockerz invite. I really need people who want to join up. I appreciate it very much from those of you who already have.

Drop a comment and let me know what you think. Take care everyone. I'll see you around.

Anime Webcams

Yesterday turned out to be oddly eventful. I was talking with my friend Siopao and somehow we got off in a talk about some Anime. She rattled off a couple and I checked the first one out. I think I was about four minutes in and I was dieing of bordem. It was practically a very slowed down version of another anime I watched due to being bored. So, I switched to another she suggested. I, again, was restless with bordem. She urged me on to stick through it for a while because there was plenty of 'wtf' and 'lulz'. Sure enough there was a definite 'wtf' moment and I'm only on episode 6 or something. I didn't think an anime could really do a 180 like that one did. (Aside from FLCL coz that entire thing is just a WTF.)

As it got to be afternoon... Well, not my afternoon, but the one I live by. Anyways, as it got to be afternoon I was in for a very pleasant surprise. I was in the middle of a conversation talking with my gf when I heard her IM window make a noise and she buzzed me. I opened and it was an invite to her cam. (Get your mind out of the gutters, now.)So, I early accepted then started kicking AIM in the ass to open so we could talk there. I don't remember the last time we got to talk like that. The entire hour we had together like that felt amazing. Brought back a lot of good old memories. Things I miss a lot. Had to of been months, but her doing that has me spoiled. Now I am going to want that nearly every day. She better be ready to be harassed over it (and several other things). She has a job interview later today at 4. I'm excited for her. I know she will do good coz she is awesome at what she does. She is my amAZN. Good luck though, baby girl. I know you'll be great.

Halloween is coming real soon and I have no plans. Thats pretty typical though. What do any of you have planned? Leave a comment in this blog and let me know. I'm interested to see.

In other news I decided to add a shout box at the bottom of my blog. If it stays lifeless for the next, oh, couple weeks then I will take it down. It's just a test run.

LOCKERZ I recently made an account on the site and am looking for people who are interested in joining. It is a site where you earn points by answers questions and inviting more people to the site. They give away really awesome prizes too. If you are interested in joining leave me an email at xxfyc0xx@aol.com and I will send you an invite. I would greatly appreciate anyone who helps me out. It would mean a lot to me since the prize I am going after takes a rather large amount of points and I am not trying to get it for myself.

See you all around. Take care everyone.

Fabrics of Tagalog

Last night was another great night being able to talk to my girlfriend. I would mention what we talked about, but I don't think its quite appropriate. Haha. We had a nice conversation even if most of it was me listening to her work and talking to office mates. It doesn't bother if she doesn't actually talk. Being able to listen to her talk to herself and work is more then comforting for me. I could honestly sit for hours just to watch and listen to her work without finding it boring at all. She insists I will be bored out of my skull. We'll see who wins that.

My friend Ana of PinkBearFad ordered in fabric of a drawing I had made for my girlfriend. The fabric arrived in just today and she was kind enough to post a couple pictures up on her facebook for me to see. Ana makes great purses, clutches, diaper bags, fingerless gloves, and the list goes on. She has a real talent and I think everyone should take the time out to check out her wares. She even designs some of her own patterns to put onto fabrics. I'm sure you can find something there you like.



Check her out at




In other news, I have been talking to my friend, Siopao, for a bit today. She started with a slight bombardment of Tagalog, but I really appreciated that. I have been slacking a lot in learning. Partly because I think my girlfriend doesn't much talk to me in Tagalog anymore. (No, mahal... I don't mean verbal. I mean text. Don't get any ideas.) Siopao and I got into a small conversation which lead to me asking questions and learning a bit more. I hope the poor girl will be ready of my bombardment of questions and lack of knowledge. I can understand more then I can write and I speak it the worst. Which is probably due to the fact that I am far to shy to communicate to my girlfriend, either verbal or text, in Tagalog. I worry too much of making a mistake. I am sort of hoping with Siopao's help I might be able to kick myself in the ass and get a bit more confidence. Along with the help of some websites I know of.

To those of you that are interested in pictures of my home life I will try to do that sometime in the coming weeks. Any particular pictures you'd like to see just let me know and I will try.

See you all around. Take care.

Conversations and Vacations

As I stated in my last blog, I tend to talk about my girlfriend fairly often. You have been warned coz this blog will have mentions of her.

Last night turned out to be a pretty good night. I have been in a good mood ever since. My girlfriend and I actually had a lengthy conversation about a lot of general talk and future plan type things. It isn't often we get to do that. I really don't remember the last time we did. I really enjoyed having such a calm, peaceful, relaxing conversation. We talked a little about what kind of future home we want, where we want, the kinds of rooms. I love talking about our future like that because it gives me a lot to look forward to and to work toward. Hopefully we can have another talk like that tonight... or just soon.

I just returned home this past Monday from a quick five day vacation. It had rained at home a week before I left and when I got there the rain followed. I think it rained every day I was there except for one, which was the day I left. That was alright anyways. I only got muddy and it's not like mud is going to hurt anything. I special ordered something for my girlfriend from someone while I was there. She seems pretty excited to find out what it is. I'm excited myself coz I have no idea what it is going to look like. It is made by a woman who is legally blind. I'm amazed she can craft the way she does. The next day I went to a gift shop and bought her a necklace. She is yet to see that.


Because of all the rain we had the field the motor home was parked in completely flooded and became a mud pit. There was at least six inches of standing water for days. The day it came to leave the motor home had to have a tractor hook up to it because it couldn't pull out of the spot it was parked in under it's own power. It would of only got stuck in the mud and caused issues. That was very interesting to watch.

Since I am keeping this blog to interest and entertain everyone that seems interested in things with my life I thought I'd ask suggestions for things you'd like to see me blog about. Suggestions on topics, stories, pictures, video, this, that, anything. Let me know what you're interested in.

An Introduction

I thought before I jumped into posting things left and right that I would post an introduction saying what the blog will me about and a little about myself.

This is going to be my publicly personal blog, if that makes sense to anyone but myself. I'll be posting up random stories of my day to day life, funny happenings, travels, photos, rants, et cetera. The list could really go on for a while.

I'm Kace as many know me by and currently living in the states. I am sort of on the dorky side when it comes to my interests and sense of humor. I have no shame in admitting that either. Art in all forms is amazing and a pretty big part of my life. From drawing, writing, poetry, songs, music, to photography, and playing instruments, I do it. Traveling is absolutely amazing as well. I have been to about fourteen somethings states so far. My goal is to hit all fifty before I die and travel all over Asia. I guess its something on my non existent bucket list? Video games are love. I am a collector and a pretty avid gamer when money permits me to be. I enjoy watching anime and reading a manga on the occasion. Also, I collect things like action figures, video games, books, animes, et cetera. (Are you beginning to see the dork in me?) I have a pretty amazing girlfriend that I tend to talk about fairly often. So, be ready to hear mentions of her - - often. She is everything to me.

That seems to sum up things for the most part. I am horrible when it comes to introducing myself and the type of person I am. I guess if you are really interested then you'll keep tabs on the blog. See you all around.
