Hello, dear readers ! Good morning,  Magandang umaga. Buenos dias, Ohayogozaimasu, Bonjour, Bom dia, Joh-eun achou, God margon, Buongiorno, Zaoshang  hao, Shubh prabhaat, Selamat pagi, Sabah alkhyr,  Dzien dobry  Guten morgen !

 

Xena, (  for some reason, link fails, so here it is…. https://blackbutterfly7.wordpress.com/   ) a good blogger friend , has nominated me for a Sunshine Award.  She only has one question her nominees have to respond to, i.e. , What’s on your mind today ?  I like  that.

 

I  woke up at 4 AM  today to read Bob Woodward’s  Fear.  It’s 6 AM right now, and I just finished reading  3 chapters of the book.

So what do I think of the book, so far ?  It’s expectedly cringe- worthy, but , to be honest,  everything  I have read, so far,  is just an affirmation of  things we already know.  I am afraid  I have become inured to all the shenanigans that are going on at the White House. I just want this to be over, so that the country can  start  restoring  respectability and dignity back to the Office of the President of the United States, rebuild the goodwill of all nations, and most importantly,  undo and repair the damage this presidency has inflicted on its citizens and government institutions.

 

There is no other  recourse but to vote, and to vote wisely.

 

This is what is on my mind today.

 

Thank you for reading, and peace.

Also,  I highly recommend  DESIGNATED SURVIVOR , a new TV series now showing on Netflix.

This is not a political post, promise

If you ‘re not into politics, don’t worry,  this is not a political post, promise . But, please,  let me vent a little.     I have been hoping  THAT guy ( whose name I shall not utter )  will not  start a nuclear  war . That’s all.  Other than that, I can live a blissful life despite the nefarious existence of  this man     After all,  I believe  I’ve become inured to all the shenanigans that are going on at the White House. Regarding this man’s  remarks about  those immigrants who come from SHITHOLE  COUNTRIES ( and further said he’d rather get immigrants from Norway   ) I  am neither surprised nor outraged . This man is a gadawful racist, we all know that, but   I don’t blame him. I blame those who had enabled this man to be elected, and I’m not even referring to those who directly voted for him, mind you.  They love him.     You know whom I’m referring to, and you know who you are.  Your incomprehensible hatred ( and irrational contempt , and because it’s cool and hip to hate )  of a rival candidate  trumped the potential destruction of everything that we hold dear in America by this man.  I hope you’re satisfied and happy now.

 

Moving along…….

 

As the title says, this is not a political post. This is actually a post  acknowledging   @Planet Simon’s Mystery Blogger Award nomination  to yours truly .  Although I’m not nominating bloggers, I’m going to answer interesting  questions he has for his nominees. Here they are:

 

a) What do you hope to better yourself in this year ?

I hope to better myself in my eating habits. I did eat binge during this past holiday season, ( as expected, of course ), mostly sweet desserts, cakes, heavy meat dishes, etc.  I hope to change that this year and for years to come.

 

b)  What was your favorite Christmas yummy ?

Oh, dear.  I guess, pork bbq ? (._.”)

 

c) What in the world now worries you more or want to see changed ?

I worry about pollution of land, air and water resources and the amount of garbage  that humans throw out every second.

 

d) What’s your favorite biscuit ?

Does this refer to UK biscuit which is actually a cookie here in the US ? If it’s a cookie, I love Macademia nuts//white chocolate cookie.  By the way, in the Philippines ,   snack Filipinos call biscuits is like ” Saltines ” here in the US.  I just bought  ” Skyflakes ” biscuits at the Filipino supermarket  last Saturday.  Filipino girls usually eat ” Skyflakes ” biscuits when they’re dieting, or, according to my mother,  that was her lunch when she’d run out of lunch money  at school.   ” cough ” I’m also on diet, hence , Skyflakes .  So good with coffee or  soda.

e) What s on Netflix right now that you can’t help watching ?

 

Two…… Planet 2 and  The Charisma of Adolf Hitler.  About the latter…. don’t judge. I just want to know what makes dictators and authoritarians tick.

 

This is all for now.  Thank you for reading and peace.
