So. The holidays are drawing near. And though I know nobody would really bother to get me any of these stuff-- here's the obligatory wish list for Christmas (I mean, I could try, right?):


1. A print of this gorgeous Audrey Kawasaki painting to hang in my room.

"My Dishonest Heart" by Audrey Kawasaki
(photo via loveyourchaos)


Her paintings make me wish I never "outgrew" my love for painting and sketching. I am so in love with her work! And if you grant me this wish you are going to have my love forever. FOREVER!!

2. An iPod Classic. 160GB for the soundtrack of my life? YES PLEASE.

3. The tattoo of my dreams. Not revealing the design here, but hopefully I get this done next weekend yay!

4. These booties to walk all over you.


In black, preferably. Of course I'm also dreaming of these beauties but I'm not looking forward to limping home each end of the day. Heh.

5. A coffee maker plz.

6. Round trip tickets to Japan for next year! The idea of getting lost in Tokyo or Kyoto excites me like making babies with Johnny Depp. Please sana matuloy na (I'm looking at you Mira and Ria!)

7. These lovely things for my bedroom.

8. Moar lace in my undies. Yes.

9. A vintage portable turntable (That distinct crackling sound before the record begins to play? Love) or a vintage typewriter. Yes, the one that makes a lot of noise. Nothing like typing noisily at night and keeping your neighbors awake to make one's being a (struggling) writer legit.

The black and white one would look absolutely perfect in my room. <3

10. A complete set of all of Fiona Apple's albums. Because that woman is a god.

11. A polaroid camera!

12. And finally, a cat who will curl up to me, ignore me, make disapproving looks at me, and most of all relay cosmic wisdom through his feline ways to me when I'm home.

I can already tell that this cat and I are gonna get along real well.

So there. My Christmas wish list. But you guys know I'll be happy with a book, a donut, or a bottle of beer. And oh yeah, a compass. I'm doing feng shui with my room. Stop laughing.

On a more socially relevant note, I also wish for Erap to go back to making movies. And stay there.

Okay people. Somebody just named their child after a TV station. How about a slow clap for these folks? Oh wait. You GMA-7 fans wouldn't let them get away with this, won't you. Come on, let's name a clueless baby out there GMA-7. And while we're at it, let's have a TV-5 as well. And Q-TV. Let's cover everything, we're like, taking the whole baby-naming to a whole different level.


And you thought inserting random h's to names was bad.

If you're a regular reader of this blog (hah, I feel like a douche for saying that) you might remember my old heading which actually looked a little cute but got a little boring...anyway, I digress. That same heading went kaput earlier this week because apparently my photobucket account has already expired (I haven't visited it in the last couple of years) so I had to make a new header (turn your eyes a bit higher on the page please. See that ugly thing on top? Yesss, that's it).


Feel free to LOL.

So this morning there was a frog in the bathroom.

I was about to take a bath when something brown fell to the floor with a suspicious splat. Being still a bit half asleep and blind without my glasses I curiously moved closer to check the thing. Then it fucking leaped to the wall and scaled it. Fucking scaled the damn wall.

It was a good thing that I hadn't stripped down to take a bath yet, or I would've run naked and screaming out of the place, scaring the neighbors at 6 o' clock in the morning.

Whoever thought about a frog prince turning into a prince LIED. What woman in her right mind would kiss a brown, wet, wall-climbing frog? Even a drunk or a loony would think twice, ESPECIALLY IF THE FROG STARTED TALKING. O hai I'm a frog but I'm your prince kiss me? I'd be definitely suspicious. Of the frog. And my sanity.

Why didn't they just make it the Dog Prince? Or the Cat Prince. Or the Elephant Prince. You know, at least something mammal?

and the world in general:


1. Posting a status message like this in your FB account:


XXXXXXX XXXXXXX: XXXXX XXXXXX: saw ds blogs in twitter from koreans.1 of d koreans said " hav u heard the news? The monkey island Philippines is flooded. I hope the rain will nver stop to drown those monkeys" all of them laughing!! Anoder korean said" ...............they will all die because monkeys cannot swim" then laughed..Pls pass ds msg Send as many as u can! koreans in our country dsnt deserve our hospitality(reposting)


First off, I saw this "blogs in twitter" that you folks are talking about and it could easily be fake. And even if it's not fake, making a hate campaign to ALL Koreans because of "this blogs in twitter" doesn't just make us NOT ANY DIFFERENT from this irrelevant poster it also makes us terribly stupid for actually wasting our time and energy on "this blogs in twitter" when we have people dying at this very moment who could use our help.

So why don't we all just ignore the haters (imaginary and real) and focus on helping get things done? You know, like getting off of your computer reposting chismis and go out, help people?


2. Not learning from this experience. If we continue to throw your garbage everywhere except the right place, then we're not helping. If we continue to demolish our forests like there was no tomorrow, then we're not helping. If we do not think of long term solutions fast, then we're not helping. If we vote for leaders who don't have the environment as a top priority in their platform, then we're not helping.


3. Not giving a shit. But we all know we can't do much about this part, don't we.

Remains as one of the scariest things to ever happen in my life.

Hi boys wanna have some fun?
(Winona Ryder and Angelina Jolie via cerebral museum)


but I would totally go gay for Winona Ryder in this photo. In fact, I'm gay for her at this very moment.

So excuse me while I post a couple of quotes from their 1999 movie, Girl, Interrupted:

Susanna (narrating): ...Maybe, there's a moment growing up when something peels back... Maybe, maybe, we look for secrets because we can't believe our minds...

-----

Lisa: Take one fuckin' step and I'll jam this in my aorta. [aiming a pen at her neck]
Valerie: Lisa, your aorta is in your chest.
Lisa: Good to know.

-----

Susanna: [reading from a book] "Borderline Personality Disorder. An instability of self-image, relationships and mood... uncertain about goals, impulsive in activities that are self-damaging, such as casual sex."
Lisa: I like that.
Susanna: "Social contrariness and a generally pessimistic attitude are often observed."
[pauses]
Susanna: Well that's me.
Lisa: That's everybody.


(Note: Lisa was Angelina, Susanna was Winona)

-----

Fucking amazing, IMO. Haha.


And if you haven't watched this movie yet, go watch it! Buy it somewhere and watch it! You have to!


Ok. Enough about fandom.


What have I learned lately?

I learned that while most of the time I refrain from making wishes or imploring to the universe to give me something that I want because it may just result to fail-- the universe knows, and gives me exactly what I'm most afraid to ask at the very moment when my insides are saying, ask, ask, the universe is listening.

What was it that author Paulo Coelho said? That when you really want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it?

I learned that I am still very bad in math.

I learned that cookies and cream ice cream tastes a lot better when a friend surprises you with it in your station! (Thank you!)

I learned that when in doubt, mumble. Or speak in Tagalog.

I learned that if you don't want to forget a secret that must remain a secret, tumble it, and get on with life.

I learned that even though temporary fixes may be temporary, they do keep things from breaking to pieces, from completely falling apart. Sometimes, it's the temporary fixes that keep things together. Things, like maybe you, and me. Which isn't so bad right?

I learned that if you put me on prolonged solitary confinement without access to the internet or books or my phone I would totally go bonkers.

Which is exactly why I have my new neighbors to thank rite? Thank you new neighbors, for sharing your intarnuts. You don't know it (oh no you don't) but you guys make sanity possible on Sundays and Mondays.


What I still don't get:

Tumbularity
Purple skinnies
Formulas
That stupid song that goes mga tambay lang kami sawa sa babae
All Rihanna songs translated to Tagalog
All hit songs translated to Tagalog for the love of god stop it already.
