Just a few quick things before this blog totally goes softly into cyber-oblivion:


1. I'm very busy but pleasantly content with work these days. I do have my must have my anger management moments but yeah, I'm pretty happy with what I do now.

2. I miss the outdoors though. And taking photos. (Sometimes it does get to a point when you get sick of seeing your face in your phone, camera, and facebook albums. LOL)

3. My Singapore trip originally planned next month has been moved to May. But this time it's for sure -- Mira's already booked tickets for the both of us this week. This is it, Mirz!

4. My friends and I will be watching You Changed My Life (Don't laugh!) this weekend. That's right, the Sarah Geronimo - John Lloyd Cruz starrer. I'm fond of that girl (she CAN act, not like some pretty, very popular faces out there), and I do think John Lloyd Cruz is one of the better young actors these days. I hate the movie title tho. Come on Star Cinema/Viva people, lazy much??

5. I want a tan, and I want the beach more.

6. Familiar with the song The Sun Ain't Shining No More? I love the hippie feel!

7. Watched Will Smith's 7 Pounds. I was told it was a tearjerker -- but well, it was okay. The movie reminded me of Smith's previous "tearjerker", The Pursuit of Happyness (which I liked). Must be Will Smith's same acting? Or maybe I just am immune to tearjerker movies.

8. Watched Frost/Nixon. Was mesmerized by Frank Langella's portrayal of former US President Richard Nixon.

9. Watched Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Loved it! The film was told in a deceptively simple way but it gets to you -- the way that what is true in our relationships with the universe and with people are both simple and complicated, both blissful and sad, both hopeful and pointless. I immediately felt an affinity to the character Vicky, but found myself contemplating on my own restlessness thanks to Cristina. And Penelope Cruz was really good in this one. Must watch more Woody Allen films!

10. Watched Milk. Sean Penn is a god.

11. There's a recurring want among us friends (aside from food, the occasional party, and the yummeh opposite sex) -- having our fortunes told. Last time (ages ago, really. I was still in college!) I had mine told in the province the fortune teller warned me that I will be a kabit (translated: mistress) not once, but twice. So far, the prediction hasn't come to fruition. Yet. LOL.

12. One of these days, you'll miss your train and come stay with me
We'll have drinks and talk about things, any excuse to stay awake with you
You'll sleep here, i'll sleep there, but then the heating may be down again
at my convenience
we'd be good, we'd be great together.

Totally digging this song:




"You just have to see her, you just have to see her
You know that she'll break you in two"
~ Sometime Around Midnight (The Airborne Toxic Event)


-- so angsty!


BTW, thanks to all those who remembered and made my birthday a happy birthday! Sorry I haven't been able to update this blog as often as I want to -- been really busy the past weeks. Also, I seem to be running out of things to talk about, or at least talk in public about. Haha.

...and talking in tags (this was a tagging business going on in facebook, but I decided to post it here because well, I'm lazy that way):


25 Random Things About Me:


1. There's this great burger joint in Kapitolyo, Pasig that I frequent with my friends -- Charlie's. I swear the burgers there are made of sin.

YUMMEH!

2. I'm not really sure if I like marriage -- in fact, last week, while attending my friend's church wedding I was almost sure that I was developing an aversion to marriage. Sure I think weddings are romantic ceremonies, but I don't know, I'm kinda not very excited about the whole tying the knot thing. But if I absolutely just have to get married, it has to be a beach wedding, with everyone barefoot, and with a cool master of ceremonies (a pastor a priest whoever) who won't drone on about how family planning is an act of evil (obviously I have issues here haha).

3. I'm currently agnostic. I'm open to a spiritual experience but I'm not very keen on anything that will involve religious rituals and what have you.

4. I cried the first time I watched Land Before Time (you know, that cartoon about dinosaurs?)

5. I'm a fan of Korean cinema and television. In fact it's fairly safe to say that I get my romantic flick fix from Korean films like Ditto, Sad Movie (yes, it was sad alright), The Classic, and Madeleine, and Korean TV series like Goong (Princess Hours) and My Girl. I can drone on about this like the fan girl that I am but let's move on to number 6.

6. I love canned tuna. Because I don't really cook (I can if I wanted to but I'm too lazy) my meal would usually consist of hot and spicy tuna mixed with crushed plain crackers or, any other flavored canned tuna on whole wheat bread.

7. I once tripped and fell to my knees in the middle of a busy street (that street just off the gas station at the end of Shaw Blvd.). In my red, 4-inch pumps. Yessir, I literally stopped traffic.

8. My favorite way to sleep is in my undies and an oversized and old men's shirt. Pajamas are good too, but only during the cold season. :)

9. Speaking of sleep, I cannot sleep without a blanket. I can without a pillow, but I must, must have a blanket. I do blankets even when the weather's hot.

10. I'm absolutely in love with Katy Perry's Thinking of You. The lines "you're like an Indian summer in the middle of winter, like a hard candy with a soft center" just about perfectly sums up some stuff in my life right now haha.

11. I tried being a vegetarian before. I only lasted 2 months. I love animals really, pigs and cows included -- but I can't stay away from burgers. And sisig. And fried chicken. =(

12. I cannot be happier with the friends I have right now.

13. I've never been a watch person. But after accompanying a friend selecting and buying (after 5 hours of looking!) I suddenly developed a desire to have one. Not one of those cutesy ladies' watches, but rather a men's chrono watch that will swallow my wrist and make hand flailing a chore. I want it for my birthday!

14. I prefer drinking hard drinks over beer. I used to outdrink everyone -- including all my hard drinking guy friends and never get hangovers. But now, I've uh, mellowed.

15. It's a wry sense of humor over good looks for me when it comes to men. But if I can have both, so much the better. Haha.

16. The very first novel I read was Mario Puzo's The Godfather. That was when I was in fourth grade.

17. I'm a real good listener. If there was an award like some sort of Grammy's for best listener (categories would be problems, fantasies, drunktalk, nonsense, and chismis) I would be a forerunner. I once told a friend, this is both my blessing and my curse.

18. I love being a stranger in a strange place. (I'm going to Singapore next month!)

19. I have a temper but I can never hold on to a grudge. All my friends who have known me for a long time know this and abuse this fact on a constant basis. =P

20. I won this Acer Aspire One notebook in our company Christmas Party last year. I never win in raffles, not even in those tickets they sell compulsary for P10 a bunch during grade school. But that night when they were drawing out the winners and I was on my way to the rest room to fix my face I actually heard a voice in my head saying my name before they called out my name. Really. Was it my imaginary friend talking to me? I don't know. haha.

21. I seem to always find myself drawn to men who are intelligent but emotionally daft.

22. I'm near sighted. If we know each other and pass each other and I don't smile that's because I couldn't see you. My eyes are L-375 and R-325.

23. I always have trouble sleeping early.

24. Plots, settings, dialogues, characters, and sound tracks run in my head constantly but I can't sit down and just put them all down and organize them into a story. Someday I'd love to be able to come up with a screenplay for a film or tv series.

25. I want to have Johnny Depp's babies.
