I just want this day to be done and over with.

I don't mean this to be another emo-emohan post -- just that I woke up this morning, missed the floor, hit my head on the door of indifference and not even glimpses of the eye candy (via my spy mirror -- so far, I've only been successful at catching a clear glimpse of his err, siko, lol) or mouthfuls of Toblerone chocolates (which I've been munching since Saturday, Saturday!! Frack.) could turn me into Miss Congeniality.

I realized too, over the weekend, that though I don't hate living with people under one roof, I'd love a place where I can watch pirated DVDs without having to strain my ears above loud conversations to understand what's going on in the movie. Or not having a daydream interrupted by the sound of flapping footwear in the stairs. Or going home late, or not going home at all, or taking home people (sounds totally perv, lol) without having to worry other people. In other words, I totally won't mind a place of my own yes?

Meditation doesn't work for me either -- I tried singing that Across The Universe line Jai Guru Deva Om in my head (The Beatles seemed to be the soundtrack of the dream that I had last night that I can't remember now, and this morning I woke up to Strawberry Fields playing. In my head.) Attempt at meditation result? Fail. Sorry naman, but the closest thing I can come to meditation is watching por--oopp, concentrating on checking line after line after a gazillion line of product descriptions and making it to the deadline with my sanity, and eyesight, intact.

It could be that I am feeling caged again and I want to get away -- like Hong Kong or Singapore or Boracay-away (Mira, are we going this September??). The office-work-occasional going out with friends is slowly taking its toll on me -- I'm a getaway girl, I have to go places or I shrivel up and die. It's been months since I've had a vacation, I could be turning into a hermit. Or worse, a potential adobo-cooking, rumor-mongering, people-rearing housewife. The possibility of turning into someone perfectly contented in a cooped little home is making me run out of happy. I haven't even been to Batanes yet! And Tibet is waiting.

So yeah. This day is almost over. I plan to run home, curl up in bed, and ignore the world.

Now I go.

Okay. Maybe a little later.

I'm getting my bangs.

I'm talking about real, full bangs, not the type of bangs with four or five strands of hair pasted on the forehead. Which is well, stupid.

But for now, I'll settle for my weekend. =)

Have a great weekend people!

Blog quote of the day:

"Question: Late lang ba siya o talagang hindi na siya darating?"
~ Keitaro Hanazawa, The Curious Life of A Quirky Chef


I've always had the nagging suspicion that he could be in jail. Or in kindergarten (and I've to pay for his college tuition). Or currently having an identity crisis. Or the time of his life being gay. Or he could be comatose in a hospital somewhere in Korea (preferably one of those hot guys with washboard abs please). Or well, to prove my (un)luck, dead.

Not that I'm Miss Punctuality either.

So I'm bored (having accomplished what I needed to do for the day). Thank god for the intarnuts I found myself a personality test in alphasensei's blog and now I can share with you, approximately 5 readers, what I am according to psychiatrist C. G. Jung.

According to the test, I'm an AT which stands for Analytical Thinker -- my personality type being the Dreamy Idealist (sounds sexay? lol).

Here are some excerpts (click the link below for the full results):

(the ones I like are in bold)

Analytical Thinkers are reserved, quiet persons. They like to get to the bottom of things - curiosity is one of their strongest motives. They want to know what holds the world together deep down inside. >> what a profound, lol.

The acknowledgement of their work by others does not play a great role for them; in general,they are quite independent of social relationships and very self-reliant. Analytical Thinkers therefore often give others the impression that they are arrogant or snobby - especially because they do not hesitate to speak their mind with their often harsh (even if justified) criticism and their imperturbable self-confidence. Incompetent contemporaries do not have it easy with them. But whoever succeeds in winning their respect and interest has a witty and very intelligent person to talk to. A partner who amazes one with his excellent powers of observation and his very dry humour. >> yes, it is true that I do not have much patience for incompetents that's why I leave discussions about politics and politicians to awesomes like rom and mention politics for LOL purposes only.

Constant social obligations quickly get on their nerves; they need a lot of time alone and often withdraw from others. Their partner must respect this and understand that this is not due to the lack of affection. >> but then

Adjectives which describe your type
introverted, theoretical, logical, spontaneous, rational (you agree yes?), analytical, intellectual (because it sounds cool), sceptical, pensive, critical, quiet, precise, independent, creative, inventive, abstract (because I sometimes have the tendency to talk vaguely especially if I want to confuse you *evil smile*), eccentric, curious, reserved, self-involved (I am not!), imaginative, unsociable (me?? unsociable?), determined, modest, careful, incommunicative, witty

These subjects could interest you
literature, science fiction, philosophy, psychology, mathematics, Internet, drawing/painting, astrology, spiritual things (I haven't gone to church in ages but yes to this), meditation, music, writing, strategy games, politics

My personality type: the analytical thinker

Take the test too?

Well. So much for the analytical thinker.

It's the rainy season again. A couple of nights ago it was just me, the rain, and some vodka. And oh, some drunk uncles who thought I was crazy enough to take their photos (apparently they were behind that car in the background? I didn't even notice they were there, I wasn't wearing my glasses).


That Blind Melon song is running through my head.

All I can say is that my life is pretty plain
I like watchin' the puddles gather rain

Welcome, rain. =)

I didn't know I was capable of having a decent, just-woke-up-with-a-hangover photo but oh look mom, it's not obvious that I drank five red horses the night before here!

big bears. i like.

Okay, I don't look anywhere near her but if you give me a bigger bear I'd try my bestest? Lol.

Sometimes I can't escape from my room so excuse me,
I'll be just a little late.

You will wait for me,
you will wait for me

It's the weekend (and a long one for me, it's fourth of July tomorrow)! Have fun people!

Okay, I may be partial to Christina Ricci being the fan girl that I am yes,

What makes us different makes us beautiful.

...but Penelope, though critics weren't really crazy about it, is a great watch. I watched it last night at home and went to sleep smiling. It reminded me of my grade school days -- no, I didn't have a snout when I was a kid -- but I did went through some similar life experiences as Penelope (and could still be possibly experiencing some on a regular basis) and was just glad that the film could touch that part of my memory and not, or no longer hurt. =)

Also, James McAvoy is my new daddy, what a delicious.
