But if you have read it, you're welcome to share your opinion with me here. Perhaps I'm going to start reading this book as soon as I'm done with this entry, hehe. Oh, Halloween's almost near. I guess some of you are preparing for a hallow or costume party or others may be busy carving their pumpkins.. So, have a great one!!!

Controversial Glee GQ Photos

I used to hear people giving positive feedback on Glee Show until I finally gave in and watch the show. I came to love it and I guess I became one of the Gleeks. My 7 year old daughter also watched with me and my husband because she liked music very much. However, as the story progressed, the episode requires adult supervision. Sometimes, I watched ahead to see if it's suitable for kids. Season 2 came and one of the episodes tackles about homosexuality. I've nothing against homos but when they showed 2 female characters making out made me decide not to let my daughter watch the show. I know it's in my power to discuss to my child about sexuality but she's only 7 and it's hard for her to comprehend such thing. So, I guess it's better if I let her watch Dora the Explorer, Animal Planet or any Educational show on TV. Recently, I've just browsed on the internet wherein some Glee members posed a steamy shot for GQ magazine. Now, what's on their mind?! Rachel Berry wearing skimpy panty licking a lollipop? What was she trying to prove? Isn't her popularity not enough for her? I've not seen the rest of the pictures but Quinn and Finn are also on the cover of GQ. Others may have defended that Glee is indeed an adult show and not like high school musical, but the characters they were portraying were high school students! And whether we like it or not, some kids really do watch this show especially those who are musically inclined. So, I can't blame some parents to react because the show aims to reach out to viewers, even giving each show some moral values to the audience and now what have the stars did to their own show?

I might still watch Glee but I will never let my child see this show again. And that's what I call - Parental Guidance! (image source: click the pics)

Designer Sunglasses

Everywhere I go, I always bring with me my sunglasses. I find it hard to go out or drive when the sun is glaring. I want my eyes to be protected whenever I walk under the heat of the sun because it truly hurts my eyes. My sunglasses right now has a big frame and I like it this way since it also covers my brows and the lower part of the eye area. However, it's quite old already and even the scratches are very visible. I thought of buying a new one and perhaps I will go for a Designer Sunglasses. I found one design that would compliment the angle of my face, which is oval. I've seen it online and it's cute and classy. I might splurge on this one since I know I'll definitely use it apart from the protection it gives me. I haven't even bought a gift for myself so, perhaps this will be a Christmas gift for myself. Since I've tried Ray Ban sunglasses before but I might try Dolce and Gabbana this time. I think their design is chic and I wear use it anywhere I go.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is the movie that I can't wait to watch. I've been an avid reader of this J.K. Rowling books that I also look forward in watching the movie version. The last installment will be finally shown next month, however, they cut the movie into half. Well, at least I still have something to look forward to. As an avid reader, it's quite hard to part with this story who's main characters I came to love. Oh well, everything has an ending so I'd better live with it...

Income Tax Form

I used to work in an office before and I was under General Administrative Office working as a Personnel Assistant. I've to check our personnel's status, absences, tardiness, etc. and after everything is cleared, we forward our report to the Finance office because they need it especially during paying period. My officemate who was an account officer would sometimes tell me how tiresome her work was. She wished there was a program that would help her sort everything especially when she's preparing the payroll and the income tax form that need to be submitted immediately. As I was browsing at the net, I found one site that might be of help to my former co-worker. California Income Tax Form will surely help her in sorting out everything she needs. For the standard forms, everything's provided from employee's withholding allowance, employment eligibility verification, application for employer, direct deposit agreement, employee affidavit for the HIRE Act. And there was also Forms for the Client such as Bank Authorization Form, Check Signing Authorization Form, Direct Deposit General Terms and Conditions, Tax Deposit Frequency Authorization and Tax Information Authorization. I might tell her about it and she can present it to her department because I believe this would hasten their work and they will all benefit from it.

Pumpkin Carving 2010

It's already October and people are already looking forward for a Halloween celebration. Others thought of buying of their Halloween costume. Perhaps some of you are more interested in pumpkin carving. Yeah, it's really interesting to see other people's work of art. What we see commonly during Halloweens are pumpkins that has eyes and mouth. But there are some people who really go out of their way to make the pumpkin look like somebody famous. I heard that there's a contest of pumpkin carving out of Lady Gaga's image.. hmm, that would be interesting considering her various styles, it's gonna be quite challenging. So, what's in store for you during Halloween?

I Love Glee!

Have you watched Glee season 2 episode 2 lately? I've watched it and I still find it hilarious. Guest star was Britney Spears and most of her songs were sang in this episode. It was quite funny, though, to have the guys performed ala Britney but they gave justice, anyway, so everything just went perfectly fine. Sue was still the same old Sue but I like the way she portrayed her comical-villainous character. Her annoying, intimidating character adds life to the story. Anyway, Britney Spears may be the guest of this episode but she only appeared few times and her lines were short, only her songs were played mostly and sang by the Glee characters particularly Brittany.

If I may comment, Santana has a better voice than Brittany although the two can really sing well with good dance movements. I find Rachel's dancing to be awkward while she sang Baby, One More Time...and I kinda get annoyed with her big mouth. Perhaps because she used to be a Broadway singer where she had to exaggerated her pronunciation or singing whatever.

Overall, I love Glee and I can't wait for the next episode to be aired. The show reminded me of my Glee Club days, only, our voice instructor was strict and only wanted us to sing ballads or songs from the opera.
