  2. Mmmm. Long weekends. I love them, too.

    My TT is up.

  3. nice to meet you on blogging leah. Hope to read more about you. keep up the good work, all the best!

  4. What a great list…x2!
    Nice to read all about you.

    Happy Thanksgiving!
    Happy TT!

  5. I’m surprised that if you spend so much time in front of a computer, you’d still want to blog! I have 10 blogs, so I should talk.

    My TT is up.

  6. Long weekends – they’re definitely heaven!

    Happy weekend!

  7. papanoorin ko rin yang bagong james bond movie this weekend… buti nbabanggit mo at na remind ako 🙂 happy weekend.

  8. we both stay pala in front of the computer for long hours… sakit nyan sa mata…

    have a great weekend!!! i’ll link you up… 😀

  9. Michele sent me here to see you, Leah.

    I like the idea of only working 3 days a week but my memory is so bad I suspect I’d forget half of what I had to do if I spend that much time off between workdays. Just a two day weekend can really get me off my game. It’s quite sad!

  10. Interesting things! I don’t want to work on saturdays and Love long weekends. Hehe.

    Ang galing mo naman, ikaw ang smartest sa magkakapatid.

  11. Hey your autolinkies look great Leah, I love long weekends too. Hope you enjoy TT-ing :o)

  12. Impressive numbers!

  13. I think I will try to get a new blog account for this alone :)…try ko kung may tyaga gumawa … I am so impress…. One book in one sitting grabeh!!

  14. I love the Shopaholic series too. I have the complete set plus other books by Sophie Kinsella like Can You Keep a Secret. I’m about to read Undomestic Goddess. 🙂 You’re right… Becky is silly, but lovable all the same.

  15. Nice to learn more about you 🙂

    Mine’s up too!

  16. You came from a big family pala. I only have one sister. And she has 7 kids! Bumawi siya. 🙂

    I also don’t go to the theatres that often. Love reading, but can’t read a book in one sitting. I just don’t have enough time. I can only do a few chapters at a time.

    Love long weekends too. But I don’t get that too often. 😦

  17. I keep meaning to do this thursday 13 too, and hadn’t gotten around to it yet.

    I think I’ll give it a try this week.
