Busy, Nesquick, Rain!

It seems that Stunner's Afflictions has been experiencing long spells between posts. But once again, life, work and more work have gotten in the way of my posting. In other words, mi busy nu ra..! I have also been too busy to even browse by your blogs to read your posts. Even my photoblog, My World May Lens, has been suffering from my time constraints. But hopefully things will slow down soon. It seems these days when I am at work during the evenings I have a tonne load of work to do so I can't really steal any time to post or read. I am currently building a website for someone (click here to view or here to see the last site I built), so that has been taking up a lot of my time! Especially since I am in the learning stage. Then there is my never ending quest to attain physical fitness and a toned, muscular body AKA di summer body! Which of course is a very slow progress. Then there are the other day to day must dos and of course even a Stunner has to get some shut eyes!

Well, apart from people falling from hails of bullets, we are finally having some rainfall across the island. Thank God for some rain, because with the heat I was experiencing a few days ago I was certainly going to loose my mind as well as necessary clothing! It seems the Hurricane season is on it's was once again, just one day to go and it couldn't wait it just had to throw out a Tropical Storm before time! Yes mi fren' I woke up on Thursday morning to strung gusty winds molesting trees of every sort! little did I know there was a tropical storm out as see throwing a few bands our way. But alas, the effects were short lived so it was nothing to worry about! But it's not that bad yet, as the cooler weather and the rain brings much relief from the tormenting heat.

With all this rain and cool weather all I want to do is to wrap up in bed with some nice, hot, sweet Nesquick chocolate! Hehehehe!

I bet you never saw Nequick served this way before!!!! Anyways, enjoy unnuh weekend, mi gone browse through unnuh blogs!

Buy One Get One, Gun and Wheels Deal!

I have heard of car dealers luring potential customers with discounts, lower rate financing, first three months free, motor vehicle insurance discounts, free servicing for the first year or so, high-end cellphones with purchase, and even free gas! But I have never heard of any dealer offering a free hand gun with the purchase of a vehicle!... Until now! I was just idly skipping through on the internet when I saw this article.

Even though this seems to be a very creative market strategy, considering that the dealer has said that sales have quadrupled, to me this does not sound like a good idea. It can be said that getting a gun in the US is as easy as getting candy from a store. And a marketing strategy like this just fuels and highlights the gun culture that the US exhibits. I know in the US everyone has their constitutional right to protect themselves and bear arms, but to me this marketing move is just pushing it too far!

I Think It's Time To Move On...

After a good 4 years of being together, I think it is time to call it quits. Don't get me wrong, I'm not one to just get up and give up on a relationship, especially one that has lasted so long. There were good times and bad time, ups and downs, but that can be expected from any relationship. We both have our faults, but I guess that's what a good relationship is all about, learning to accept each other's faults and to work around them. The times we had together and that we still have together is priceless, after all she was my first. The first to make me take control, the first to put total power in my hands, the first to give me the ride of my life the way I wanted.

But with all these positives and memories I can't fight this feeling, the feeling that it's time to part, time to move on with our lives, to take our separate paths. I tried to hold on longer, but the urge is so strong. At first when we came together as a team, it was fun, exhilarating, a bit nerve wrecking as we were both new to each other, even though she was more experienced than me. Even though she treated me well and took me to where I wanted to be as best as she could, despite me not treating her as good as I should have, I still think it's time we moved on.

I know my female bloggers are probably disappointed in me now, but this is just how life is. Nothing lasts forever, no matter how good it was in the beginning, no matter how much work you put in it, at a point you just have to give up. And giving up is so much easier when there is better out there, something newer, with more passion and make you heart crave with lustful desire. Yes I admit it, my heart has been captured by a new flame, no not a flame, a new raging fire!

The new object of my desire is a whole lot sexier, prettier, stronger and from the looks of things feel a lot better. I know without a doubt my new love will give me an even better ride of my life, will take me much further and much quicker than my old love. From the first time I laid eyes on her, it was love at first sight and I could just imagine what it would feel like to be inside, revving, turning and pushing the limits! She is very pricey, not sure if I can muster up the doe to win her over, but I know to have her to do my bidding is worth the effort.

I hope my old love will find someone who will take better care of her than I did, who will make her shine and look flashy. But that is just not me, it will not solve the problems she has and as she ages more problems will only follow. So I have decided to to do what I think is the smart thing and move on... Yes people I have decided it's time to sell my 1998 Honda Civic sedan and upgrade to a newer ride! I have been eying the new shape 2005 Honda Civic sedan! Yes it's pricey, but that is the only vehicle that I see that I want right now as the Japanese shape Accord is too expensive and I really don't want to go up to the 2.0 litre engine with these gas prices. I hope to be rolling clean by late this year if all goes well and the money flows right. So go ahead, gaze and dream with me on the new ride I want to get.

Are You a risk Taker?

Your Risk Taking Level: Medium-Low

You'll take a risk if you have to, but you prefer to err on the side of caution.

If something looks like it's going to work out, you may just go for it.

But frivolous risks like gambling totally aren't your style.

You prefer to have as much control over your life as possible.

Are You a Risk Taker?

I wonder if this makes me boring?

Hot, Hot, Hot!

Has anyone noticed how hot it is, or is it just me? Am I suffering from a fever, Dengue maybe? I feel no pain, no dizziness, my lips aren't cracking. I felt my forehead and I felt my neck with the back of my hand, but I don't feel a fever. It has been so hot these last few days here in Kingston, and when I say hot I don't mean 'I can fan myself cool hot'. I mean miserable, tormenting, sweat oozing, skin burning, relentless heat. I can't believe it's this hot and it is not even Summer as yet and worse it May! May, the so called rainy month! Isn't it supposed to be cool and wet right now, instead of like some, desolate arid region?

Things have gotten so bad that, shirts and A-shirts are no longer a part of my bedtime attire, and if it gets any worse than this I think my draws will suffer the same fate! Rolling over my sheets has become nothing more than an empty, monotonous, nightly ceremony that I do, as it doesn't get even the slightest chance to cover my skin. Once the fan used to be on the medium setting, then it went to high as it oscillated to cool the room. But with heat like this, no more left, right, up or down for me, I want the full blast of the breeze directly on me. I can't allow even a second to elapse with me being separated from the wind. But alas, not even that can bring relief as the fan only throws hot air at me, as I toss and turn in my burning agony!

Hoping and praying for cooler days only seem like a fantasy, a dream in the face of this heat and the impending summer months. If the hottest months are not yet here and it is this hot now, how will I survive? My extremely hot oven... um, sorry, I mean apartment, is not equip with the luxury of an air conditioning unit. So now it has become necessary to approach my landlady for assistance to end my torture and install a unit, even a small one was my apartment is not big at all. If this is granted, it will mean another hole in my already porous pocket, but, I am now willing to make the sacrifice just to have peace, a good night's rest, escape from this torment. Hopefully she will have pity on me and install a unit as I can't picture myself going through the intense torture that I suffered last summer. There were night when I only had 2 hours sleep due to the sweltering temperatures. So an AC is not just a want, but now a need!

Until there are once again cooler days or my landlady installs a unit I will have to try my best to live through this hot, humid condition, especially in the confines of my apartment. But mi nah lie, it hot nuh ra..!

Things Rough!!!

Things have been going up so much of late! It seems every single day something goes up, especially the price of oil which is now at US$120 a barrel. This will just cause another explosion in the prices we pay at the pumps. As if that wasn't bad enough, now we are experiencing food shortages and the resulting increase in food prices all over the world. But have you noticed how much everything has skyrocketed... exept our salaries. Things rough star!

The Forbidden Kingdom

On Monday night I went to see The Forbidden Kingdom at Carib 5. I haven't seen any movies of such that would grab me to go to the movies, however The Forbidden Kingdom did seem like a movie I could watch at the movies. After all, it had two of my favorite martial arts stars, Jakie Chan and Jet Li, so there must be at the least a few good parts! Well, it seemed it was not a bad call at all, as the movie was totally enjoyable.

Both jet Li and Jackie Chan threw in their usual impressive martial arts skills to entertain and and kept you glued to the screen. It fact, they had a really crazy fight scene between the two of them that would not only excite a martial arts junkie. But the movie was not all action as it was pleasantly punctuated with a nice amount of comedy to give you a few laughs. The story line was ok I guess, even though it is fictional and based on Japanese or Chinese folklore. But who really pays attention to story line when you want to see some kick-ass fighting?

As usual, I will not tell you what the details of the movie, as that would just spoil the fun. The Forbidden Kingdom is not a big block buster-like movie, but it will surely entertain you and won't make you feel like yo wasted your money. Based on what I went in expecting, as I was expecting just a decent movie, I give it a 4 out of 5.
