et al

Yuppies are always busy, I know I am one of them. But it is really something when they could always find the time to unwind and answer crazy stuffs sent via internet. I sent out a forwarded survey yesterday on how your friends know you. I would like to share some of the answers I have received, they are hilarious (especially those from Kuya Alfred)… they made me laugh that is why I took the liberty of posting some of them here. It is great to know that people I know and love knows and love me too. Kahit yung iba pang-asar, thank you friends!

Kuya Alfred (thanks! Pasalamat ka you’re my friend Faye’s brother kung hindi maasar ako sayo, hehehe)

From Lorrry
The past time we always do, hay reminds me of our younger days. Musta na kaya si Paeng (NOT my fafa Raffy ha!) na crush ko nung freshies?


My friends think na my best feature are my eyes, kahit malabo? Ewan ko lang, I don’t think kase na it is the best feature I have hehehe (as if I have other good features).

I was really smiling the other day when Julius sent me a copy of his strip all about Zeke. I have no idea why he keeps on sending me artworks of what he did nevertheless I am grateful because they make me smile pero nakakainis, bakit si Zeke dreamer & sleepwalker? Ako yun eh!!! Sue me my dear for this but I am gonna publish your latest artwork here:

My sister made me a testimonial on Friendster. Okay lang di naman nya ako china-racter assassinate hehehe pero she said I’m suplada and maarte, ate ko oo. Di bale I’m gonna counter act that hehehe I will make you the best testi ever, you can kill me after.

Wala lang I really like Luc, hay he looks like a splitting image of Superman. Can’t wait for another Monday para I can see him again kaso konti ng exposure nya. Hay Matthew Bomer!


Naiinis na ko super late na ng Attic Cat, can anybody do something about it? Argh!!!!


Okay ba Gabby? Oh well Congrats to Marco!

Ways on How To Deal with the Burdens of Life

Key on how to handle stress:
If we carry our burdens all the time, sooner or later, as the burden becomes increasingly heavy, we won't be able to carry on.

I have received the following from my email, although its was forwarded message, I cannot help but ponder on some of the things it mentioned:

1. Accept that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the statue.
2. Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them. [anne: I wish I could do this]
3. Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it. [anne: lol]
4. Drive carefully. It's not only cars that can be recalled by their maker.
5. Eat a live toad in the morning and nothing worse will happen to you for the rest of the day. [anne: ano daw? live toad???]
6. If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague. [anne: hear hear]
7. If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it. [anne: correct!]
8. It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others. [anne: i think i am cos i'm a walking disaster]
9. Never buy a car you can't push. [anne: first be sure you have the money to buy a car, worry abt pushing it later]
10. Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you won't have a leg to stand on.
11. Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.
12. Since it's the early worm that gets eaten by the bird, sleep late. [anne: yep tama yan, sleep late and spend your days like you'll never have another day]
13. The second mouse gets the cheese.
14. When everything's coming your way, you're in the wrong lane. [anne: huh? i thought one should count her blessings?]
15. Birthdays are good for you. The more you have, the longer you live. [anne: like we have a choice?]
16. You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person.
17. Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once. [anne: cos u never learn!!!!]
18. Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.
19. We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors but they all have to live in the same box.
20. A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.
21. Happiness comes through doors you didn't even know you left open. [anne: yeah yeah, i think this was from me, line ko to ah]

Dawson's Strait

“Bye, plane na me, I promise to see you next year”

Reply: “Ok when will you be back? Ingat ka lagi and please keep in-touch. God Bless You”

“I will, promise”

3 words spoken/ texted between 2 friends.

Let me tell you the story of Dawson and Joey on a different angle. You see Dawson is the brother of Jen (I know I twisted the story a bit). Jen and Joey are friends and Joey is friends with Dawson as well although not as close as Jen. Little did they know that Dawson developed a “more than a friend” feeling for Joey. Dawson revealed what he truly felt then went away. Joey didn’t say anything about it and they continued their separate lives. Along came Pacey, Joey and Pacey became a couple and Dawson learned about this. That’s the time Dawson stopped talking to Joey. Joey didn’t have a clue that Dawson in a way was mad at her. When Dawson came back from the States everything became different, for a while he & Joey stopped being friends. Then this morning the text message above.

Joey said that she felt a little sad because she wasn’t able to talk or see Dawson the whole course of his vacation. They were close and it’s normal for Joey to feel sad thinking that she lost a good friend. She feels that she’s been losing a handy of good friends lately. Although the others are coming back, she can’t help but think that it is maybe her fault that these strange things were happening. She even lost Pacey (well it’s a different story but still they can never be friends, perhaps in after life, she can only just pray for it). But because of Dawson’s sms, a glimmer of hope emerged, she wasn’t bad after all. She didn’t wish for all those sad things to happen. Plus the fact that she misses Dawson cos they were really good friends and he’s one of the few person she can talk to about anything and everything all the time.

How many times was a good friendship ruined by our expectations and willingness to move on a next level and be more than friends? We are but human, sabi nga Joey is really likable but then on several occasions she considers being likable a curse. She’d rather be barren yet surrounded with good friends than lovable cos people tend to go away after it. I cannot blame her, life really is mysterious and unpredictable. We can just pray for happiness all the time but we can never be sure if we will achieve it. Love for instance, can be simple but often times complicated. It’s like passing through Scylla and Charybdis, choosing between two equally undesirable or unpleasant things hoping that at the end of the strait will be a pot of gold.

Kaya nga ba I don’t wanna be a grown up eh, problems with love is something I don’t want to handle, I wish I could be 5 again.

Goodbye and Hello

I spent my Saturday afternoon lamenting on the demise of the greatest Headmaster Hogwarts has ever had, yes my dears Dumbledore. Albus Dumbledore died and it is really a great loss for the wizarding world. I am so pathetic crying over a fictional character but hell, I have been with them for 6 years now, feeling nothing over Dumbledore's death would be more pathetic. I am sorry Ziella & Gabs for ruining your HP moments, my bad it was too much emotions for me that I need to tell somebody, hehehe.

Saturday night was Marco's kick off of his party. I can say it was a success. Congratulations Marco!

(with Jayson)

Marco & Ina with Marco's sisters Meryl & Tracy did a fabulous job of making the venue really homy and cozy.

As I bid my farewell to Dumbledore, I am waving my hellos to the new friends I have met last Saturday.

The Liz Phair Connection

Thursday is my favorite day, the fact that after today is Friday makes me love the day more. People would ask why not love Fridays instead, well I can’t because Fridays sometimes depresses me. I am not really after Friday, I am after the warmth liberating feeling of having to go through one more day and its Saturday already. No work, no stress no anything, just a day of fun & relaxation.

My friend Lorry must have really loved me hehehe, she sent me the e-book version of Harry Potter and the Half - Blood Prince. Yipee, I can now read it, I will just have to wait for the paper back copy so that I can include it on my library. I have finished the first 7 chapters already. 23 more chapters to go. Sorry Joeyboy, I think I have to let Not Pron wait for a while till I finish this book. I prefer Harry more than DavidM.

My niece (Meng) started her own journal in Friendster and I was able to read the first entry she wrote. I am quoting what she said although not verbatim, she feels lucky that she have me, my Mom & my Pop. She even mentioned that she doesn’t care if she’s from a broken home because having us and her friends makes her whole already. I am so proud of her, she might not hear it from me all the time but I am really very proud of what she became. She knows what I hate the most and hopefully she’ll be able to stay away from any bad habits she has. It feels good that at an age like that (which I feel irresponsible often times) she was able to weigh what’s good from bad. She’s smart and I know she can make. I can’t wait for the day that she marches down PICC. I’ll be the proudest aunt when that happen and I know it’s gonna be soon.

I guess I am blessed too, with the family I have kahit may problema - aja aja fighting :), with the friends I have, with the job I have (kahit puro reklamo ako sige na nga), the blessings I have are really priceless. Now eventhough I consider myself as not-so-average-everyday-sane-psycho-super goddess, I guess I can still kick some butts - those who let me down. But I can just forget about it - it'll just be a waste of time. That is why I can relate to Liz Phair, hehehe I am extra-ordinary if you only get to me ;-)

ano daw?

Thanks to Joel, my mind is now being exercised by this really mind boggling riddles and puzzles. He gave me the address then I shared it to Joey. Ngayon si Joey masakit na rin ulo, hehehe.
NOT PRON meaning not porn, sabi nila it’s the internet word lam nyo naman web, nag eevolve lahat ng bagay pag dating sa information technology and language is one of them. I don’t know if it’s just me or am I now turning into a boring bitch? Grabe na exposure ko sa geeky stuff and this is one of them kaso di naman ako makausad. While Joey is now jumping up & down cos 2 digits level na sya, I’m stuck to the lowly amateur level – the levels that even kids can surpass. You guys can try it. Share kayo ng hints ha :-). The web address is, it’ll show you the link to death ball.

Sabi ni Julius gwapo daw (hehehe). Sayang Gabs dapat pinuntahan mo sa Rockwell at sinama mo ako :-). I browsed through his site, syempre read konti browse konti, check out interesting books nya. In my opinion mukha syang Dustin Hoffman na rock star.

Everytime I look at you the world just melts away
all my troubles, all my fears dissolve in your affection
you see me at my weakest but you take me as I am
when I fall you offer me a softer place to land

you stay the course, you hold the line keep it all together
you're the one true thing I know I can believe in
you're all the things that I desire
you save me, complete me
you're the one true thing I know I can believe in

I get mad so easy but you give me room to breathe
no matter what I say, you'll do
because you're too good to fight about it
even when I have to push just to see how far you'll go
you wont stoop down to battle but you never turn to go

Love is just the antidote nothing else can cure me there are times
I cant decide when I cant tell up from down
you make me feel less crazy otherwise I’d drown
but you pick me up and brush me off you tell me I'm ok
Sometimes that’s just what we need to get us through the day

Song of the moment, I love this song a lot, I love thinking about the person that fits this song, I love everything around me lately, thank God for small favors :-)

Sunday, July 17, 2005


“Uy in-love!” sabi ni Gabs.

“I don’t think so, it’s too soon for that” sagot ko.

But at the back of my mind it has always been there it says, the feeling – that soft spot for that one special person. When he left, he didn’t take my feelings away with him. It was well hidden that even I wasn’t able to locate it. And when he sort of came back, apparently it was still there, it wasn’t even gone even for a split second. It was just there and that is what’s making me more confuse than ever.

Talking to him doesn’t even make sense. All I could do is just stare at him, inside my thoughts were ramblings of lost feelings & then found. I couldn’t even decipher what he’s talking about but at the end of the conversation it was amazing that I can recall every word he said, to the last period of each sentence. I dunno maybe it’s because of what Gabs said, we have a lot of things in common that I can see myself having the time of my life with him. I did figure out that this too shall pass like what we had before and that this is just a special bond of friendship that we share, the more I think about it the more I need to convince myself that it isn’t. I can just take a lot of care this time so I won’t be hurt the way I was the first time.

I have been contemplating so to speak that I have realized that no one have ever done something way out of the ordinary for me. Like singing to get my attention & impress me, or sell their prized possession a guitar maybe for dance lessons cos I dance and cos he wanted to be able to dance real well with me. Or chase me while I am walking away – a bunch of flowers at hand. Nobody as in zip has dome anything romantic for me. Call me a hopeless (romantic) lunatic but I guess a girl can dream. But then I was able to realize that a lot of people actually did pretty nice things to me. I may have never been appreciative of the small things, now I would like to take this opportunity to thank these people. I know they may never read this stuff but it feels real good to be able to express that I am truly grateful. To these people you know who you are guys, my sincerest appreciation.

To the one who always listen to my ramblings mula noon hanggang ngayon about how I truly messed my life as in, for being my shock absorber.

To the one who accompanied me on my several hospital trips, for laughing at me when I am so scared of my own blood. It made me feel better.

To the one who would patiently wait for me while I make my company rich thru my over time without pay.

To the one who offered to carry my things every time we meet up, for bringing me home especially when it’s very late, even when he doesn’t have his car with him… for calling and choosing which cab to ride.

To the one who is always available whenever I call or text, for bearing with all my boring stories, I know you think I’m just bored. No I am not, I really wanted to be with you.

To the one who chunked and clipped the crab, I had a nice time, my loss I didn’t gave you the chance to let me know you more.

To the one who liked me from day 1 of college – I broke your heart a lot of times already but I am still thankful that you are nice to me and that you are still there.

To my music buddy – thanks for the CDs. You’re my angel, I know you don’t realize that but you always have your way of making me feel better everytime I’m sad.

To the one who read poems to me on the phone, that’s truly romantic. You make my heart leap whenever you do that.

To the one who offered to bring me coffee when I was working late before, for waiting and accompanying me while I wait for a friend up to 2 am.

To the one who have so much confidence in me, for praying that I be happy soon.

To the one who never stopped loving me, from childhood up to now, I know you mean well, thank you for loving me I am sorry I can’t be that person for you.

For all the small details that really made a big difference in my life, you guys are amazing, I am sorry I never live up to your expectations. I am sorry I have hurt some of you. I just want you to know that I am truly grateful our paths have crossed.

I call Joey as the Julio ng buhay ko, yep Julio at Julia kambal ng tadhana. I dunno why this fellow seems to know a lot about me. I am so transparent in his eyes that he can see through me. There was this one instance before that he seems to understand me more than my girl friends. And just recently, he told Gabs that he thinks I like this one guy cos my eyes were different when I look at the guy. Grabe, I am so buking in front of Joey, kaya friend here’s to you – you deserve a shout out. Thanks for waiting with me last Friday, you don’t talk much but it was fun hanging out with you & babe watching is cool I guess, hehehe ginawa mo talaga akong lesbo. Natutuwa talaga ako sayo.

MUSIC et al
Call me lukaret but I have discovered another thing that we have in common, music… hehehe wala lang, I think this will add up to the things we can talk about. Looking forward to the next.

JOAN past present & future album – OUT SOON
I think I am now ready to make the CD of my life, an album that would tell how I have lived my life. Nobody would probably produce and finance it. I think I would have to bribe my best friend with something on my will – like I would make her the beneficiary of my insurance hehehe. I want the song “Train Wreck” to be included – cos I am a train wreck waiting to happen. Birthday in 2 months, I can’t decide what to do with my career and where my twenty something life is leading me to. I cannot even update my resume’. I am so much in a mess that even Rolly’s comforting words can’t do anything to it. Oh well, all I can just do now is wait for my Seth the angel of death. Argh I am a total klutz.

The Angry (B)Itch

Arghhh, I hate allegens, binubwisit talaga ako! Feeling naman kase kutis mayaman, konting alikabok lang ganito na! Hay I dunno what's happening to me lately, a new addition to my string of sicknesses, allergy naman ngayon - to dust & heat. Darating na lang ang araw bubulagta na lang ako ng dilat, kainis.

Anyway, another itch - I am so dying to go videoke-ing. It's a good thing Dinah will be bringing us to one videoke joint in celebration of her birthday. I've got all the songs lined up already, hehehe from my all-time pambato Weak down to Especially for you. Hehehe kawawa naman mga friends ko, they have to bear with my vocal stylings hah!

Third itch - the last 2 books of The Chronicles of Narnia, I got to have both soon.

And another itch brushed with reality: the K750i Sony Ericson phone, ma-sad naman ako when Jen told me that it is so expensive, sayang money pang Australia na namin yun, right Jen?

I have this thing on this one OPM song, hehehe. Saya - we sing it all the time in the office, it's MYMP's version of Sa Kanya (all about Attic Cat ito!) kayang kaya namin rendition nya hehehe or mas better pa nga (rolling in laughter). And the pitch where the voice will be stretched yakang yaka. My goodness, I have been listening to a lot of MYMP lately kaya ata ako nagkakaganito.

And I have a new ring back caller alert, hehehe try no pakinggan - inform me first so that I won't answer hehehe, wala lang I'm just proud of the little things that I have been doing lately. Sobrang stress-free except for the office tasks. Can't wait to get out of here, out of this country. I am so excited for next year. Sana my Pop will give me what I have asked na, yipee yun!

I bought a new DVD, ganda nya nakarelate ako (as always), it's the latest Kevin Costner movie with Joan Allen I think it was not shown here (considering na halos kasabay na natin States sa mga screening dates) kase early this year pa yun eh. Anyway the movie is entitled "The Upside of Anger". It tackles what anger and resentment can do to one, medyo deep cos you will have to think at di naman sya feel good although the ending is vague, you choose your own. The upside of anger is what you become, your growth as a person. I may not be the kind of person who is angry all the time but I realized that deep inside I am. I have hidden angst towards other people, situation and most of all to myself. Which is bad cos since it's under the skin only a few can find out about it unless I make it realized. Hirap din, when you have difficulties in expressing yourself, you can suffer from the euphoria of sadness and inconceivable anger.

Ayan ramblings again of a shitful mind. Sorry, my mind won't be idle again - will try harder next time.

The Weekend That Was

I felt warm & fuzzy over one song, I have not felt this for so long, a good indication that this day will be a good one. Although I woke up late today, on a Monday of all days I felt good. Okay I must admit I debated over not going to work, I’ll just pretend that I am still sick but it’s a good thing that goodness prevailed hehehe. What made me decide is the saying “An idle mind is a devil’s worshop”. I realized that I’ll be doing nothing at home should I decide to stay.

I wrote something over the weekend that I failed to post, blame it on our hi-speed “kuno” internet connection. And my laptop, for fa’vor Joel Angelo!!! Paki ayos na, super bagal na nya.

Anyway, what I wrote was about why I couldn’t pass writing some stuff. Here are the reasons:

1. I have realized that it was a good thing that I missed a lot of movies in the theatres lately. I watched majority of them on DVD last weekend and thank God I was busy the time they were shown cos if not it’ll just be a waste of time & money.
2. A text message from an old crush
3. Gimmick with the SagadaGang, an event that I have been looking forward to the whole of last week. Seeing all of them again (minus Luch & Marco) is something. We went around the mall, shopped a little (not for Gina – she bought 2 pairs of shoes – she’s depressed she said), dined at Spam Jam (food is good there, I recommend you guys try it especially to those Spam lovers, it is located at Glorietta 4 near Italianis & Nike Park) and watched Fantastic Four
4. Fantastic Four – I like it a lot, better than the other Marvel Comics movie adaptation that I was able to watch lately. Hah! I was able to spot Stan Lee ;-)
5. Time that I was able to spend with friends – chat till 5 am with Gabs when she slept over, DVD session with Gabs, Zie & Edward, truly a good Sunday afternoon
6. Friends told me that I lost a lot of weight, HUU HAH for me! Not just 1 friend, not just 2 – all the friends I met up with this weekend! Kitch even asked me if I’m on drugs hehehe that effect huh (wink*)
7. The perfect shoes! The tiredness of my feet from looking and browsing at shops last Saturday & Sunday paid off. The perfect pair of shoes was bought at the 50th Avenue of Alabang Town Center (check out their dresses, shoes, bags & accessories). My next agenda, the gypsy skirt I have my eye on.
8. Gab’s & Zie’s suggestion – they’re both correct & I’m glad I’m doing it

My good friend Rolly asked me how I have been last night and it led to an exchange of text messages. Thank you bro, you’re my Idol talaga and it made really smile cos I was touched when you said that you, Bam & AJ will always be there for me. To the president of my fans club, winner ka talaga. I’ll forever be grateful for the friendship.

I was able to see a copy of the book “What Color Is Your Parachute” too bad it was so old, it was 1998 pa. Grrr, good buy na sana kaso outdated.
Antok na antok na ko!!!!!!!!!!!! It was ages when I have been up till morning, naninibago na ko
Marco’s SHMINGLES party, I can’t decide, should I go or not?
Naipit ako sa pinto ng kwarto ko when I woke up this morning, kakamadali ko siguro cos I’m already late. Namatay ata kuko ko ah, nagclot dugo :-(

My laptop was stretching a lot of my patience last weekend. The HALE CD was popped on the cd player and I have realized that the CD will be over after a couple of so songs more. Grabe kabagal ng PC ko oo. Buti na lang the song was the boy band sounding track, made me smile medyo baduy. Oh well I mentioned doing a review for the HALE album but I am sorry I can’t do it anymore. I can’t get a single unified thought from the tracks, the songs confuse me most of the time. I can’t blame them their songs are damn too personal – they’re the only ones who can explain what they really want to tell the listeners. There is this one song from the album that I really like pero my goodness, the title is the same phrase that I don’t think belongs to the whole song itself. Di ko talaga magets – ganun ako ka-slow, I guess.

Mark & I agreed on this piece of technology – it is the phone for us! I want it I want it! Kaya guys bilhin nyo na lang MOTOROLA E398 ko. Bago pa naman and if you want to negotiate let me know, bibigay ko ng mura lang ;-)

A new foot relaxation venue opened in front of our building, Jenny & I had the chance to experience what they can offer last Friday. We tried the foot scrub, galing – highly recommended. The ambiance of the place is really Thai-sh, relaxing & cozy ang mood. All their chairs are even lazy-boys. They give complimentary iced tea or hot tea and complimentary back massages. The place is called Footloose & it is located at the ground floor of Alabang Business Tower. May kamahalan nga lang pero it is service deluxe with style. If you guys want to know how to go there let me know I’ll give you the directions.

I wasn’t able to mention the song that made me feel different today, for people who knows me it is obviously predictable. Magulo naman talaga akong kausap at incomplete magpaliwanag hehehe. And I opted to make the song anonymous, personal eh - & the reason why I like it is nakakahiya hehehe (wink wink) - the usual, I have its video on my mind and how its story would go if I was the one who did direct & wrote the story line.

Confession of A Disaster Stricken Mind

I was watching the American Idol rerun last night when I realized that my old crush looks like Bo a lot. Rocker din, long hair & all. Nakakamiss, yung feeling when you have someone to swoon for hehehe. It seems like the kilig feeling left me out in the cold for ages now. Nakatuwa lang when girls can still shriek at the sight of someone. I think I aged rapidly that I have not lived my life according to my age and to how I should.

Fridays depressed me. So I guess I should stop using TGIF as an expression. I don’t know if it is just me or is it because I’m sick… and tired hehehe. Nah being just sick is already painful but being sick and tired is a different matter. I can have lakads if I want to but what is wrong with me? Am I actually tired of the lights & the music? Am I actually tired of pretending I enjoyed someone else’s company when I don’t? Where are the real people? I need rescuing from myself, this is bad.

For a moment there I hated writing to this blog, all I can write about is music, movie, people and myself… this sickens me cos I think it’s turning out to be a tabloid already. I hate my writing that it really stinks I am not sure why there are people reading this cos my stats are increasing. God I’m hopeless, I need help.

Segue, this is the only thing consistent in my nature. I can never really concentrate on one thing hehehe. I was browsing through a baby book when I saw that my name means “gracious gift”. Neat huh? And Jo means “sweetheart”. All the good stuff in baby names. They suggest you name your child after the good things only. Why don’t they suggest the challenging names as well? Like Bogart (hehehe Jenny yuhuuu!) or Bruhilda, Hilda for short? Hehehe. If I am to name my child I will choose the challenging ones than the cute & cheery ones. My kid can hate me for it but he or she can’t do anything about it, hehehe. This will open my kid’s eye that there is no justice in this world.

Here I go again, clueless on how to end this. Clueless on how this day would end. Di bale, I’ll just look forward to Saturday, to Fantastic 4 and others. I’m afraid that if I blabber more here I’ll end up talking about movies and music. Arghh, I am already tempted to do so. Alright I’ll shut up now. Ta ta.

On Coughs, Fever & Colds

Suffering from low grade fever for a week now doesn't stop my poor spirit from going to work. Arghh! Even my colleagues are down with this dreadful virus contaminating our office. For instance, Jenny is just waiting for her chin to drop on her desk - she said that we should be alarmed once we heard a crash it is cos she can no longer sit still. Our boss, who's whole house is infected with this flu & allergy thing comes to the office alternately - every other day. And moi, battling with this fever for a week now, I still believe that this is the work of the unspeakable fabric softener that I snorted.

Tomorrow's Friday already, weeeheee! Can't wait for this week to end.

Oh let me share this cool thing I have read from Jessica Zafra's Womenagerie book, the story was entitled "Real People - An endangered specie", it is about how people react to situations. It seems like people nowadays see things in a different perspective. We do not react the way we should be. Example, when your child comes home with a black eye & wounded knee the reaction is to hug your kid & give him a glass of milk??? Pathetic right? The correct reaction is to be in rage & ask your kid "WHO DID THAT TO YOU?". Oh well those were the stuff we see on TV. But it made me think, I am one of those who react differently and it makes me think more that I may now be living a life away from my life. Is it because I don't feel the right feelings anymore? I don't have the proper emotions anymore? Plastic na ba ako? Do I immortalize martyrdom? Gosh, scary, this is not me anymore.

I may not have a good ending to this crappy piece of shit I wrote, blame it on coughs, fever & colds - NOT TO ME! Hehehehe.

Peace out!

Events from an UNeventful Weekend

I like my title a lot hehehe cos there are really massive things that happened last weekend while I was on my insanity phase. Here are the reason why I couldn’t pass on this opportunity to write loads of stuff:

Long talk with Luchie, overseas dearie. I could not believe that I actually spent 800 plus pesos in one phone call. It was worth every penny, I miss my bestfriend very much & listening to her voice soothes my tired spirit.

An unforgettable conversation with important people, quoting some of them:

“It’s a man’s word Joan & it is just a phase, it’ll pass & when it did you’ll laugh at everything behind you”

“Did what? What kind of person is that? Just looking for a free f*#k? Geez I couldn’t believe you are stupid now. I could ignore you for that even forever for letting it go away. Arghh I don’t know what to say I’m a man too but I cannot sympathize with what was said to you, I can live without sex. God what kind of conversation is this?”

My reply: Bad mo! You don’t know that person.

“I don’t want to know him”

The Ateneo Blue Eagles all-star pep squad really had me laughing last weekend during the alumni exhibition game, kwela I have never laughed like that in ages. Seeing Sen Gordon & Gary Lising was really comical & they’re doing a cheering stunt, it was really funny.

Water & Sleep, I was able to sleep so soundly & thanks to my new lullabye singer. Things can turn from bad to worse but as my fave quote now adays, the window has been opened. And I promised myself not to dehydrate myself anymore, 8 glasses of water a day can do wonders.

Calendar Girls… movie that I like a lot oh well I’m a sucker of feel good movies what can I do?

An act 1 scene 1 kind of thing:

“Perhaps you haven’t really been inlove before kaya you sound like that”
“I have been & for a while there I wanted to die when the relationship was finally over”
“Hmm, kaya pala ganyan ka pessimistic ka na”
“No I’m not, I’m more of a sigurista na siguro, I don’t want to do the same mistakes I did in the past”
“So it was your fault?”
“Alam mo ang cute mo, it’s not my fault (moment of silence) can we just not talk about this? You’re making my heart bleed (a lil laughter) tagal na nun”
“Anong matagal it was just last year let me remind you”
“Mas severe yung bleeding nung time with you”
“Ouch, you’re telling me I broke your heart? Eh mas cute ka pala eh”
“Sus patay malisya, hay lets talk about you. It feels like ages when we last talked ah”
“Oo nga eh pansin ko a lot of my good friends disappeared when I had a, you know significant other kuno kuno (laughter)”
“We didn’t disapper we just kept our distance, who would want to cause a rift between people who are going out on a steady basis”
“You sound so western ah, going out? Like date date lang? It was a relationship noh”
“It’s a good thing it ended that way Anne, believe me I know & have been to a worse dilemma than yours”
“Who said I have a dilemma? Ano ka ba, I decided to shut up na di ba? Can you do the same, hmmm? Pretty please?”
“Dapat nakilala ko sya”
“I’m so much relieved that you didn’t”
“Madamot ka”
“Hoy mas ikaw”
“Hay naku don’t talk like that, it makes me misses you more”
“That is not my problem my dear”
“I know, oh by the way Fantastic Four next week, lets go out”
“Why ask me just now? Talaga to come with us na lang I’m gonna watch it with Mark”
“Naunahan na naman ako, when can I get an appointment ba? Hectic lagi ah, tsk tsk ways with a pretty chic oo”
“My thank you for the compliment… it was nice of you I know you just want me to feel good, I appreciate it”
“Yan ang ugali mo, you always think people are too sorry for you, why do you think those who are long dead are now resurrected & talking to you? Don’t you get it?”
“I love it when you say words like that, highfaluting phrases, gosh where did I get my adjectives… kakakausap ko sayo ata”
“That’s more like it, the girl Anne I know is coƱotic, nah kidding aside I think you’re back the way we love you”
“Awww that’s sweet, leche! Ano ba san ba punta ng usapang ito? All I can feel is like you are beginning to kiss my ass, stop patronizing me will you?”
“(laughing real hard) I am not ano ka ba, you have issues talaga with compliments oo, some things really never changes”
“Can we just talk about books? Or TV shows? Or kahit ibang tao na lang?”
“Okay basta masasabi ko lang sayo I’m glad you’re back to the Anne I know all my life”
“O sya sya”

And cut!

Yeah some things never change even some feelings don't. Life oh life, God I miss the times like this. I miss the things I do before cos I was once a party girl then my wings got cut & it when it was cut off I thought that was what I wanted. I am not saying that entering law school ruined my social life (but it is true heheheh) cos I still wanna pursue it no matter what. And since it's July I'm making a big step for my life. I am loving it! Horray!

And before I forgot, HAPPY BIRTHDAY YONG! Love you! Muah!

PS: I accidentally snorted/inhaled a fabric conditioner, boy it was bad. It made me sick, made me sneeze & sneezing up to now, it was funny. Addict hehehehe.
