it's a magic number

Memes are one of my all-time favorite things. When I was 12 and the Intarwebs was new, I was that person who filled out every goddamn chain-mail "get to know me!" meme and proceeded to spam all of my little 7th-grade friends. I can't believe AOL didn't ban my account. Anyway, I have a couple saved to my desktop but I wanted to start with this one. I nabbed it from the awesome ethony. (Even though I wasn't tagged. Is that proper blog-iquette? Well, it is now.) We're gonna call it... The Power of THREE. (Charmed reference, anyone?)

Three Names I Go By
Asian Sally (...but that's another post.)

Three Jobs I’ve Had
Stock girl at a bargain-basement type housewares store (UberSuck.)
Math and writing tutor for rich kids (AKA a glorified babysitter)
Assistant Youth Services Librarian (that's my current job)

Three Places I’ve Lived Traveled To [I've lived in NJ my whole life, soo...]
Madrid, Spain
Galway, Ireland
The Philippines (I was 12 and we visited family, so I can't remember exactly where we went.)

Three Places I’d Like To Go
The Grand Canyon
Middle Earth. I mean, New Zealand.

Three Favourite Drinks
Starbucks Iced Mocha (seriously, they're like crack)
Plain Old Water
Malibu Bay Breeze (nothing like three or four of these to knock you on your ass and have you deciding it's a good idea to take the glass home in your bag and the waitress tells you you can't do that so you cry and then you go into the bathroom and you're not sure but you think you started singing along to the music while you were peeing.)

Three TV Shows I Watch
Mythbusters (see previous post)
Platinum Weddings. I CAN'T HELP IT.

Three Favourite Old TV Shows
Boy Meets World (I watched this earlier today, and I'm telling you it stands the test of time. It was brilliant.)
The Twilight Zone
Nickelodeon's Roundhouse. Please tell me someone else watched this show. I need to believe that it was real!

Three Favourite Foods
Macaroni salad (I know, who am I, the Barefoot Contessa? But seriously, I can't live without it.)
Arroz Caldo, which is, as I know it, this awesome delicious rice porridge that my awesome Filipino mom makes on New Year's Day and when I'm sick.
Carrot Cake (I know, who am I, the Barefoot Contessa? Whoa. Déjà vu.)

Three Make-Up Products I Can’t Live Without
Urban Decay's Primer Potion
Bare Minerals Mineral Veil
Benefit BadGal LASH Mascara

Three Things I’m Looking Forward To
This weekend, cause I'm visiting my college campus with my friends Cait and Katie
Tonight after work, cause Matt and I are going out to watch the Flyers/Montreal game and probably drink ourselves blind.
February 2011, cause that's when I'm going on a cruise of the Western Caribbean with my best friend Lindsay and we are gonna go sightseeing and eat until we burst and probably drink ourselves blind.

Three People I'm Tagging
Matt. You need something to blog about.
Amber. You're hilarious and I want to see what you do with this.
Kara. I like you.
And Angela, because I get one more for good luck. And because I like you.


  1. Great post. And now I'm gonna have that three song in my head all day!

  2. Aw, yay! You like me. You really, really like me! (Haha, couldn't resist!)

    I'll have to work on this when I get home tonight for tomorrow's post. It'll be fun!

    And I frakkin' LOVED Roundhouse! It was one of my fave TV shows when I was in middle school. You're not the only one.

  3. "Middle Earth. I mean, New Zealand."
    haha, I love it!

  4. @Ronnica - I know, it's magical. If I won the lottery, the first thing I would do is plan a 2-month trip to Spain.

    @Sadako - Muahaha, my evil plan hath succeeded!

    @Kara - OMG thank you for validating the existence of Roundhouse. My friends and family think I'm making shit up.

    @VanillaBean - :D

  5. I became obsessed with Roundhouse because I was a Newsies nut, and it had a bunch of the guys form Newsies in it!

  6. You win at life for including "Roundhouse" on your list.

    Thanks for tagging me. I'm going to have to meditate on the meme for a while before I fill it out. You know, get in touch with myself, etc.

  7. Mmmm I want a Starbucks iced mocha now so bad, and none in sight. Thanks a lot lol

  8. Middle Earth <3 haha!

    I love memes :D I was actually going to have a separate page for memes on my blog because I know it could easily get overrun with them as I have found so many on the interwebz that I want to get round to doing. They're addictive!

    Toyko is probably top of my places to go list, I want to immerse myself in that place.
    Iced Mocha, oh my hook me up to it via intravenous.

    I have the Benefit eyeliner from the BadGirl collection and it works wonders.


    @Amber - Yes, yes, I recommend that you take some time to reflect on your place in life. To center yourself accordingly :P

    @Kim - That's the power of the Iced Mocha, isn't it? Evil, evil Starbucks.

    @citysoliloquy - I've never tried the BadGal liner, but I need a new one and your positive review is very enticing! Wonders, you say? Hmm..

  10. The best best eyeliner I've ever used is Urban Decay Ink for Eyes which I've been using for the past few months after my boyfriend's brother was a cute munchkin and got it as a gift for moi. It's so easy to get a great line every time and normally I'm hopeless!
