50 Questions Challenge, Day 8: What is one quality about your parent(s) that you really do not like?

Hmnn...  I am only on day 8 but I am now faced with a difficult question.

I did not grow up with any of them, mom worked in another country while dad worked as a professor in his town.  I grew up in my great grandmother's household so I am having a hard time thinking of what answer to give for today's question.  Can I say, PASS!?

No?

Ok... I am thinking.

Oh!  Here it is.  

We don't call each other as often as other parents and daughters would call.   I talk to my mom on the phone once a month but we email each other more often... exchanging chain mails and once in a blue moon how are yous and hellos.  We are updated of each others' lives because she calls my older sister more often.  It is not that I am really demanding more call time from her but you know how sometimes a person thinks one is favored than the other.  Haha!  I am jealous.  Not really.  I am to blame, too, because I don't call her.  And I promise to call her at least twice a month from now on.  I miss her, especially her laugh.  My dad, though, is a different story.  Maybe it's because of the separation why we really did not bother to call each other.  It is not that I am angry at him about not trying to communicate with me... communication between us was just not established.  When  he comes home to the Philippines, he would tell us to go to his place and that's the only chance for us to catch up.  When he returns to the US, we're both dead beats.  I promise, too, to send him message once in a while.

So, there.  As clear as the blue sky, we're poor when it comes to communication.  We're too busy minding our own lives that we sometimes forget to reach out.

Dream Interpretation: Collapsing Building

I had a dream last night about a building collapsing with me and some other co-workers inside it.
We're cleaning up some rooms at the first floor while construction men, well, do their job in other parts of the building particularly the third floor. After hours of cleaning, my co-workers and I decided to call it a day and get our things at the third floor. When we got there, the building started to tilt and in just a few seconds, everything collapsed. None in the group got hurt as the floor we're standing on wasn't damaged, in fact, it slid down a slope while we still hold on to dear life. At the end of a downhill ride, we found ourselves on a lake. I saw some of my co-workers crying and calling for help.

To dream of cleaning, according to Dream Moods, implies you are overcoming major obstacles in life. You are moving ahead toward a new stage in your life.
To see a building in a dream is to see the self. How high you are in the building represents your …

Something hairy, soft and wet

It is the time of gift giving and Kris Kringle again. Of course, our office is also in to the spirit of generosity. It is already our third week and I am the lamest gift giver lately. I have to make amends to that since my 'baby' is someone who is dear to me, someone who I trust.

I already have the 'something embarrassing to carry in public' and it is too embarrassing for me to show in this post. Let me just focus on the 'something hairy and soft' and 'something wet'. I was lucky to find both in one cute gift set... The hairy and soft teddy bear key chain and the wet but fragrant cologne.

Don't worry if I spilled the beans, my officemates have no idea that I have a blog.

Do you have Kris Kringle in your office?
