Politics annoys me --

Am not entirely apolitical (I didn't vote) -- I pay enough attention to know what's happening (and to check how it's affecting the peso-dollar conversion rate) --

Last night, on the cab ride home, my J and I were listening to the joint session(?) on the radio -- God, our politicians talaga are sooooo effing annoying! >_< Hearing them speak and how ridiculous their thoughts are just irritates me -- they try to sound like they know what they're talking about and complicating very simple motions with their highfalutin words --

One of the motions voted on was whether congress would be willing to spend every waking hour of the seven days of the week to count to CoCs before the June 30 deadline (Pimentel motion?) -- jesus, as if they're really going to spend every waking hour of the seven days of the week doing so --

And that whole hysterical session with the representative from Maguindanao --

I share that anonymous note's sentiment -- just shut up and do your work already --

Today's horoscope -- (May 29)

You'll be thinking about commitment, and the repercussions of such an action -- and well you should. This is the stuff that major changes are made of. Are you sure?

Wow --

Am watching the Counting Crows perform on the Today show on ETC -- they've been around since 1993

and my sibs and I have been fans for just as long -- August and Everything After was one of the first CDs we bought/owned in Iloilo --

My favorite Counting Crows songs:
Mr. Jones
Round Here
Long December
Big Yellow Taxi Cab
Ghost in You (Clueless OST)
Angels of the Silences
Colorblind (thanks C for reminding me ^_^)

Put your heads together and plan a big adventure. A fun camping trip, exotic vacation or romantic weekend getaway all sound like fun, but first, start with a lovely dinner.

Because today is May 25 --

My J and I went to UP and I got to try Rodic's for the first time -- Tapsilog = YUM! (I want to go back! ^_^)

My bro had this 100-item question sheet regarding 80's pop culture and I was very pleased with my J because he knew so much! *clap! clap!* (We missed 16 of the 100 = who remembers who teddy ruxpin's best friend is?)

It was fun reminiscing about old cartoon shows (Shirt-tales, Smurfs, Visionaries, etc. ^_^)

Oh, and, yes -- I am giddy in-love with my J. ^_^

Lomo goodness --

So last week my J and our friend C brought me to UP's Beachhouse -- I decided to bring along my supersampler so I could take pictures inside UP (a change of scenery for me ^_^)

Here are some -- (apologies for the quality -- the supersampler doesn't have a flash so some are grainy and my scanner is almost dead)


Siyempre, I haven't asked permission to load these pics --

Anyhoo --

This is a nice shot of my J and C

Am back!

It was so rain-y! (But that didn't stop me from enjoying myself there ^_^)

I really love going home to Iloilo -- I love how nice and relaxed the pace of my life is there.

Before I leave --
Some things I learned from Queer Eye for the Straight Guy:

- there is such a thing as prune butter. Yes, butter from prunes. Don't ask. Don't tell me. I don't want to know.
- a chofa is a chair that is a sofa.
- how to tie a tie and make sure it has a "dimple"

... I love this show. ^_^

* * *

Am off to Iloilo! --

Yes, I know it's early. Cab will be here at 630am. Wow, can't believe I'll be having batchoy for lunch. (Yay! This is always a good thing. ^_^)

Can't wait to see my parents again. ^_^

See you guys on Thursday then. ^_^

Quotes from Mike Gayle --

It all depends how brave you are ... It will always be easier just to cool off and let things go back to normal. And, yeah, it might be that things go wrong and you could fall out for good, in which case you'll lose a good friend. But if you get it right, if you take your time and don't rush into things, you might get more than you ever dreamed of. You might get someone who will always be on your side, someone you nevcr tire of looking
at, someone who's your perfect soul-mate.

* * *

...I think love is a face. A face that you see day in day out. You wake up in the morning, there's that face again staring at you from the pillow opposite. You have breakfast there it is once more hiding behind a packet of cornflakes. You kiss that face goodbye as you go your separate ways to work. Eight hours later you kiss that same face hello. The face tells you about its day at work. You tell the face about your day at work. You cook for the face, and it does the washing up from the previous day. And when you go to bed, you kiss the face once more and hope you'll see it in your dreams.

* * *

But what's the use of having all the time in the world if you're always wasting it on things that don't mean a thing?

- Dinner for Two, Mike Gayle

* * *

Am off --

I'll be leaving for Iloilo tomorrow to spend some time with my parents. I'll be back on Thursday.

~sigh~ It will be difficult hunting for a place to check my mail and post some stuff. Oh well... ^_^

* * *

Guess where I was yesterday --

My J and our friend C brought me to the UP Beach House for lunch yesterday. The pork barbecue was yum!

I brought my Lomo Supesampler with me and took lots of pictures. ^^

I'll write more about this when I have the photos na rin.

This one amuses me --
(much to my J's dismay ^_^)

My friend C dropped by the store today to pick up some comic books for her boy -- she forgot to get the comics (because she was in a rush) and ended up just returning some magazines she had borrowed quite a while back. She also gave me this --

It's a really lovely reversible bag, which she made for me. She pointed to the two bunnies and said that was me and my J --

Isn't it just cute?

* * *

This pleases me. It's the sequel to Before Sunrise and will be shown in the US in July.

I want to watch this! >_<

Someday --

My J and I will visit this place. ^_^

I just want to go everywhere with him! (I think we'll have a great time. ^_^)

And I want us to go to a place where neither one of us has been to pa, para we can just get lost together. ^_^

New Blog Template--

Saw that Blogger had new templates to offer and this one was just too cute to pass up. My J also changed his blog template -- hehehehe ^_^

Sorry if the whole thing is a mess -- am ignorant of html codes and whatnot. If you guys see anything wrong, please let me know and I will have my bro fix it for me.

* * *

What I did today--

Well, I didn't go out to vote -- (I just don't believe in the system right now).

Spent the morning playing pRO and watched Iron Chef with my sibs on the new cable channel: ETC.

My J came by in the afternoon and we went to Greenhills Shopping Center -- it seems that the two of us have been seeking out and sampling Sago't Gulaman from every establishment we come across. So far, we haven't found a really yummy one --

We visited Booksale and I found a copy of Willow for my sister. There are also 4 copies of Gregory Maguire's Mirror, Mirror HC available (for PhP185). Will pick up a copy this Friday siguro.

Maguire also wrote Wicked, which was turned into a Broadway musical (and is nominated for the Drama Desk award)

* * *

Can you say "thwarted"? --

My J has been wanting to watch a movie since last Friday. We had dinner with my friends and planned to watch Van Helsing after -- we were in Galleria, but I convinced him to watch it at Theater Mall. So we take a cab to Theater Mall only to discover that we had missed the last full show by about 15 minutes.

Last Sunday, we decide to try again -- we were on our way to Greenhills Shopping Center when it rained really hard. We got stuck in Ash Creek and decided to take shelter in Pancake House (and then Starbucks).


Troy is coming up this Wednesday. I wonder how packed the cinemas will be on Friday -- I really want to watch this one! >_<

Forgive the keso --
This one goes out to the one I love*: my J --

It's amazing how you
Can speak right to my heart
Without saying a word
You can light up the dark
Try as I may
I can never explain
What I hear when you don't say a thing

The smile on your face
Lets me know that you need me
There's a truth in your eyes
Saying you'll never leave me
The touch of your hand
Says you'll catch me wherever I fall
You say it best
When you say nothing at all

... I was watching Notting Hill on Studio 23 last night and this song came on. ^_^

Sunday Morning --

While helping my J organize his desk, we found the copy of his one "dinky" poem -- (his favorite image is dust motes)

I closed my eyes, hugged him tight and listened to him read it to me.

We were standing in the middle of his room and it felt like we were dancing --

And this is interesting reading: Reflections on a Mote of Dust by Carl Sagan

* * *


No work tomorrow because it's the National Elections. I really don't know what I'm doing -- will probably spend the morning at home and will go to Greenhills Shopping Center in the afternoon ^_^

Dance Me to the End of Love by Leonard Cohen

Dance me to your beauty
with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic
till I'm gathered safely in
Lift me like an olive branch
and be my homeward dove
Dance me to the end of love

Let me see your beauty
when the witnesses are gone
Let me feel you moving
like they do in Babylon
Show me slowly what I only
know the limits of
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the wedding now
dance me on and on
Dance me very tenderly and
dance me very long
We're both of us beneath our love
we're both of us above
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the children
who are asking to be born
Dance me through the curtains
that our kisses have outworn
Raise a tent of shelter now
though every thread is torn
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to your beauty
with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic
till I'm gathered safely in
Touch me with your naked hand
or touch me with your glove
Dance me to the end of love
The first thing that comes to mind (at the moment):
A - Apple Pie (with lots of cinnamon, please and vanilla ice cream), College acapella goodness ^_^

"Welcome to the Ateneo!
I am pleased to inform you that we have accepted your application to teach at the Department of English."

... can you tell how happy I am about this?

I first received an e-mail from the new department head three weeks ago asking me to come in for a preliminary interview. I was pleased about being considered for the job. (This was the second time I applied to the English Department -- last year, I got a letter in the mail telling me that they already had a full roster of teachers.)

I did my demo two Mondays ago -- OMG! What an amazing experience! I was so scared because I hadn't been in front of a class (to teach) in 4 years, but, when I stood there in front of the class and started talking, I fell into the groove of it again. It is like riding a bicycle. (Although, I did learn how to ride a bike and I did forget how to -- lol!) When I was there, I knew that was what I wanted to do. I wanted to teach.

Last Monday, I went in for a panel interview and I was told that they would know if they need teachers by this week (waited for sections and confirmation from other teachers whether they would be coming back to teach).

Kaya imagine my surprise to receive a phone call and an e-mail message on a Wednesday informing me of my acceptance. ^_^

!!!!!!!!! <--- this is how I feel right now. ^_^

* * *

from one of M's friend's LJ --


Ready or not, some day it will all come to an end. There will be no more sunrises, no days, no hours or minutes. All the things you collected, whether treasured or forgotten, will pass to someone else.

Your wealth, fame and temporal power will shrivel to irrelevance. It will not matter what you owned or what you were owed. Your grudges, resentments, frustrations, and jealousies will finally disappear.

So, too, your hopes, ambitions, plans, and to-do lists will all expire.
The wins and losses that once seemed so important will fade away.
It won't matter where you came from, or on what side of the tracks you lived.
It won't matter whether you were beautiful or brilliant. Your gender, skin color, ethnicity will be irrelevant.

So what will matter? How will the value of your days be measured?

What will matter is not what you bought, but what you built; not what you got, but what you gave.
What will matter is not your success, but your significance.
What will matter is not what you learned, but what you taught.
What will matter is every act of integrity, compassion, courage and sacrifice that enriched, empowered or encouraged others to emulate your example.
What will matter is not your competence, but your character.
What will matter is not how many people you knew, but how many will feel a lasting loss when you're gone.
What will matter is not your memories, but the memories of those who loved you.
What will matter is how long you will be remembered, by whom and for what.
Living a life that matters doesn't happen by accident.
It's not a matter of circumstance but of choice.

CHOOSE TO LIVE A LIFE THAT MATTERS. ~ by Michael Josephson ~

you are aqua

Your dominant hues are green and blue. You're smart and you know it, and want to use your power to help people and relate to others. Even though you tend to battle with yourself, you solve other people's conflicts well.

Your saturation level is very high - you are all about getting things done. The world may think you work too hard but you have a lot to show for it, and it keeps you going. You shouldn't be afraid to lead people, because if you're doing it, it'll be done right.

Your outlook on life is very bright. You are sunny and optimistic about life and others find it very encouraging, but remember to tone it down if you sense irritation.

Some interesting things courtesy of C --

Take on the challenge! Read the word for the week and then write! ^_^

... I made the mistake of reading the word for the week and I didn't have time to write the ficlet, so I have to wait until next week to try.

You submit your list of top 20 books and they will rate your literary taste. I discussed this with G before she left for Dumaguete and the prospect intrigues us. Am now thinking of what my top 20 books are.

Book Haul --

Visited Powerplant last night with youngest bro and my J -- found a copy of Nick Hornby's Fever Pitch and Mike Gayle's latest, Dinner for Two and they restocked their Terry Pratchett shelf (my bros are happy about this one ^_^)

And Rustan's Fresh now has Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream!!! Yay!

A belated thing --

Poem In Your Pocket

The City of New York and The New York Times invite you to join us on April 30, 2004 for Poem in Your Pocket Day. April is National Poetry month and there is no better way to culminate this tradition than a citywide celebration of poetry and literacy. New Yorkers are encouraged to carry a poem in their pocket and share it with friends, family, coworkers and classmates. Public schools throughout the five boroughs will highlight poetry on this day through readings, poetry workshops and specifically designed lesson plans. Tuck a poem in your pocket and see what surprises may come your way. What will your poem be?

To commemorate the end of National Poetry Month, blog about your favorite poem and provide at least one link to other poems and/or a bio of the poet.

Here's mine:

The Saddest Noise
by Emily Dickinson

The saddest noise, the sweetest noise,
The maddest noise that grows, --
The birds, they make it in the spring,
At night's delicious close.

Between the March and April line --
That magical frontier
Beyond which summer hesitates,
Almost too heavenly near.

It makes us think of all the dead
That sauntered with us here,
By separation's sorcery
Made cruelly more dear.

It makes us think of what we had,
And what we now deplore.
We almost wish those siren throats
Would go and sing no more.

An ear can break a human heart
As quickly as a spear,
We wish the ear had not a heart
So dangerously near.

Plus, an interesting Emily Dickinson link.

Interesting weekend --

My J and I met up with his friends last Friday for dinner and drinks -- I thought I was going to feel so woefully out of place because they're all from the same org and from the same university, but I didn't -- they were all so nice and so funny! I couldn't stop laughing! We started at Absinthe in Greenbelt 3 (had their Bailey's Shake -- yum!) and then went to Tiananmen along Makati Ave (great music).

... my J hasn't met my friends yet. (I wonder how that will turn out ^_^)

Saturday, saw G before she left for Dumaguete today and was able to get an update about her -- it's always good to touch base with friends and am glad she's doing okay. ^_^

We decided to close the store really early because we realized it was Labor Day and no one was there --

* * *

Spent the rest of the day with my J and we ended up playing Trivial Pursuit --

Here are snippets from various stages of the game:

my J: Amp! Anobanaman'tongmgatanongna'to?

- - -

Me: Fuck! How the hell am I supposed to know that?!?

- - -

my J: Shit, andali ng tanong ng gago.

- - -

Me: Damn you! (I chucked the six-sided die at him)
my J: *incredulous look*

erm... etc. ^_^

For something as "intellectual" as a game of Trivial Pursuit, we were swearing a lot ^_^ (but it was a fun game and we finished in less than an hour -- we both had difficulty with Sports and Leisure and my J was galing with People and Places and Arts and Entertainment)

* * *

Oh, and if you get a chance to visit Ice Monster -- try their Halo-halo (the finely-shaved ice really makes a difference ^_^)
