If you are wondering what wahine means: It means woman in Hawaiian. I am a filipino gal born in Hawaii, I go by the name Evelyn. I love quiet evenings, especially rainy days when I can just sit in and sip my cup of tea and have a hot buttered scone, with a great book. I am a fufu gal and I love teas, dressing up, sudoku, eating, bunkos, antique shops, cheap costume jewelry(especially the ones with a lot of bling), wacky pens, magnets, crafts and the occasional gossip (nice stuff only). - Alright, old lady stuff . . . I need help!
I have a wonderful haole (caucasion) husband who loves to eat Filipino food, so that's why he married me. Well that's the second reason. He loves it so much, he's been around for 17 years. I am blessed to have two beautiful stunning daughters, who look like me (well at least the long dark hair) the rest, well they take after their dad. My eldest, Brenda Lee, I named after a country singer, she became a pharmacist - singing wasn't her forte. She likes to say a lot of hard words which confuses me..My youngest, Trulena, she is a soldier in Iraq fighting for our freedoms, bless her little heart-she likes to take charge. She is sweet as sugar! She is so skinny, her gear is heavier than her, she is back now, disabled, but alive. My son in law Jeff is very kind, giving and a wonderful husband/dad (and he best stay that way). My grandson Tru - 14yrs.old is a karate guru, I think his goal is to be the best ninja in the world. If he can't beat them, he'll probably outwit them. My grandaughter Jamine Leilani( I mean Jasmine Leilani), loves to use her vocal chords - I think she will be an opera singer, if that doesn't work she can be an actress -she is a character, and a cute one too! I now have another grandson named Diego. And we dieggggg him!
I love a lot of Christian Books! I especially love works by Elizabeth George, Emily Barnes and Beth Moore. I do a lot of bible study with Jon Courson. Awesome stuff, check him out... www.joncourson.com. You will be blessed. (and it's free!)I read the Left Behind Series-by the time I read the last novel, Jesus will come back. I read so much that now I need reading glasses! Okay, I am turning into a real granny - I think I'm getting old.
One Night with the King, Planet Earth, The Nativity, Chronicles of Narnia, Everafter, Titanic, The Notebook, The Gospel of John, Passion of Christ, No Reservations,EverAfter, Serendipity, The Notebook, Kate and Leopold, Triston an Isolde. . . . (to be continued). If you have any tearjerker flicks, please tell me about them.
HGTV, Discovery Health, Monk,,National Geographic, Animal Planet, Bananas Comedy, Military channel, History Channel, America's Funniest Videos, Forensic Files, Dr G Medical Examiner. Just from seeing my most watched shows, you can tell that I am a homebody who stresses out when her house isn't user friendly, and the stress causes health issues, so to keep my mind occupied I try to help others, especially the animals who are becoming extinct and when things get too stressful I turn to funny videos and comics to make me laugh. In the meantime, I like to entertain myself to see if scientists can really figure out who dun it, while Mrs. G. just cuts them open and gets down to the true cause.
I love to scrapbook, especially with Brenda, I like to watch her go nuts over all the choices at the scrapbook expos. If you have never been to one, you should go, it's like being in a candy store, except the rush is better. I like the ready made pages since I have no originality. I copy well though, I think that's called plagiarizing. One day I know I will get caught, so shhh... I can sew a little, I have made blankets for the nonprofit org that I volunteered for-Project Linus. I collected blankets from blanketeers and brought them to little children who had cancer. I quilted a blanket once (3 years ago). It's unfinished. I hope to finish it before I die. I just started making ATC's so excuse the lack of imagination on my cards.
I like to eat, so here in Vancouver there is literally restaurants everywhere. Why cook when you can eat out? Well, my finances limit me to eat like a queen so I have to find recipes that taste as though I am in a restaurant. So far my husband is still here, I guess it is working. So, if you ladies out there have a killer recipe (don't take that literally, my insurance policy is not that high)that is to die for - please let's swap.
Hmm... What do I collect? Mostly dust. Seriously, I collect magnets from all over - that is my favorite since whenever someone travels they get me a souvenir cause it's cheap and mostly because they think I'm worth it. I collect on occasion lighthouses because I am fascinated by them - I mean what house can keep their electric running 24/7 and its okay by their husbands? I collect pens just cause - I should try to use them to write once in a while - I email everything. I collect teacups too, especially the ones that are original - you know, the ones that don't say Made in China. They are so dainty and cute that they stay in my cupboard. One day I'll invite some ladies over to have tea with me - Now I am 50 and I can join the Red Hat Society. I drag my grandson to tea whenever I have the urge - he is so adorable he goes with grandma -ain't that something! I can't get him to wear the boa feathers though, ninja's just don't do that.
Are you wondering what to send me? Well, I never had people send me stuff so this is actually a hard question . . . hmmmmm.
I have a lot of stuff, but so very little room in my apartment (miniature is good).
I like colorful things, so send me stuff that will make me say "ooh, I like that color".
I love bubble wrap . . . I like to pop them, especially when watching scary fliks.
I don't have any animals so photos of your animals would be nice, so when people ask me, I can show them. That way they know that I love animals. I love them, I'm just allergic to them.
Stickers are nice - I like stickers. Make sure it's not the kind you have to lick, I hate paper cuts on my tongue.
Souvenir magnets-love those!
Mugs and plates - I like to collect those because I love to eat, and when you eat as much as I do you get thirsty, so then I need a mug to drink out of.
Stationary - So I can use my pens, in case they start charging for email.
Warm socks - My feet are always so cold! What's up with that?
Soaps - A girl cannot get clean enough, don't you agree?
I am 52 years old - so nothing too wild and wacky (okay my username, well I can explain, I didn't know you couldn't change it until I hit the button).
Cute little books with cute sayings in it. . . you know the kind you find in the dollar store or from your regifting closet.
I like postcards- those with writing and those without. The ones with writing works best cause it'll feel as though I am popular and have friends all over the world.
Tapes with your voice on it - maybe tell me about yourself through audio tapes, or better yet, sing me a song!
Photos of yourself - With an autograph on the back telling me how much you like me - again, so I can brag to my family how I have great friends in cool places!!
Chocolate - Yes, yes, yes (Chocolates are girls best friend or was that diamonds?) Okay, whichever is cheaper is fine with me.
Studying . . . I was a full time student (I graduated!) with a BA degree in Human Services. I have been job hunting since the begining of October 2008, hey I finally got a job in March 2009... I retired from army 10 years ago. We just bought our first house! I have my own room to throw all my swap-bot stuff! It is my craft room.....I am surrounded by my swap-bot stuff, that is really all I need to make me happy!
