sunday bloody sunday

Sunday, February 29, 2004

If you're in a very good mood, don't read this, coz it might get you down. I'm on one of my off days. The kind of days I just wanna vent but I can't say anything out loud coz if I do, everything blows out of proportion. ARGH!

Just great. Sometimes I really hate Sundays. Everybody is at home & we have no choice but to interact & sometimes it leads to only one thing: SERMON. Kaines talaga! It seems I always get a sermon on this particular day of the week. I mean I love my family, but sometimes it feels like I never do anything right. It's like all that's highlighted are your blunders & good stuff you do are ignored. Blech.

And the thing I hate about it is because I'm the eldest, it seems I get the bulk of the sermon. As if something my siblings did or didn't do is partly my fault. I mean, wtf is that all about?! Kaines. I mean all they ever clean in the house are their rooms and I do the rest of the house, and I get the sermon? And the day that they don't see me clean (which I did, but I guess it wasn't at par with their standards), ayan na.. blah..blah.. blah... And does my sister do anything? NO! She stays in front of the PC typing as if she can't hear anything. That's the thing I don't like about my sister, she's so indifferent. If an epitome or a perfect example of manhid or bato is needed, sha na yun! Hay naku, mabait sha oo, pero sometimes she makes me want to tear my hair out because of frustration. Nakaka-badtrip minsan kasi parang wala kang kausap, walang reaction, kung meron man, feeling mo pa sinayang mo oras nya pagsabi mo sa kanya. (as i write this... meron na namang sermon on the background - my goodness... when will this freaking day end?!)

I wonder is it because it's the 29th? Josme, gawan ba ng dahilan, kung bakit pangit ang Sunday ko. Playing on my mp3 player is Happy, & yeah it's a happy song, but it has no effect on me. I still feel irritated. :( The theory that happy songs make you happy didn't fly with me. Oh well...

I guess this weekend isn't my weekend. Yesterday, I felt I let a friend down. She was in a bind & i tried to help her but circumstances wouldn't let me. I was worried about her, but I spoke to her earlier and she said everything is okay now. Her mom got mad, but not as mad as she expected she would be. Hay, buti na lang.

I hope tomorrow would be a better day.

Shoot! I almost forgot. It's my parents' 29th wedding anniversary tomorrow. Wow.. 29... at this day and age, that's an accomplishment, considering how many families break up. That's one of the things I'm most grateful for. That my parents are still together. :) Oh I guess that was my first smile of the day. :D and that was the second.

Geebs, Happy BEER-Day!!!!

Twelve days to go until the INCUBUS Concert. YAY!!! I wouldn't be able to go to the METGEN Company Outing, coz it's at the same day and it's an overnight thingie. But what the heck?! Okay lang yun! The INCUBUS concert here is like a once in a lifetime kind of thing. I wouldn't miss it for the world.

reality tv

Friday, February 27, 2004

I haven't updated in three days, so I guess it's about time I do. hehehe. I'm not sure if the excitement of having a new blog is waning, but I just found myself not in the mood to write the past few days. Or maybe it has something to do with the weather. It's been so hot the last couple of days, it feels like even just a small movement would make me sweat buckets. Hahahaaa!! Or maybe I was aflicted with tamad-itis?

What have I been up to the past couple of days? hmm... nothing much. Too many thoughts in my head though. It seems I have an opinion with just about anything nowadays. It's not necessarily a bad thing, it just feels like I have information overload sometimes. I've always been an opinionated individual, I just try to keep it in check and I don't push others to view things the same way as mine. I wouldn't want to offend them. I listen to their different perspectives & hopefully they listen to mine, too. That's why I always try to do.

But there's one topic that makes my blood boil nowadays. It's the thought that our country may be going downhill again coz, let's face it, there are too many misinformed & i hate to say this, ignorant Filipinos. I don't get how a lot of people want to vote for someone just because he/she is popular or is in show business. I mean, haven't we learned our lesson yet?! Haven't they realized how the last actor to hold the highest position in the land screwed our country over?

I almost had apoplexy when I saw last night on the news that according to the latest surveys, the #2 on the Senatorial race is Bong Revilla & the #3 is Lito Lapid. MY GOODNESS!! Doesn't that news make you want to tear your hair out coz of frustration? I hope before the elections people would have some sort of enlightenment. Tama na nga, I might have a heart attack coz of this. Hahaha!

I found that watching reality television shows would either entertain you or make you stupid. There are so many reality shows & i try to watch them, even once. If I don't like what I see, I don't watch it again. But there are some shows that no matter how much I say I don't like it and I won't watch it anymore, I still do. An example would be Fear Factor. It's not for the fainthearted, specially when you see the stuff they have to eat/drink/put in their mouths. I get queasy everytime I watch it, but i still do. Hahaha! Weird.

Another reality show I absolutely love is American Idol. It's shown here about 2 weeks later than in the US, but I don't mind. I loved the auditions episode coz there were really funny auditioners. I cannot believe how many people think they have the greatest voices in the world, but in reality they sucked bigtime! One such person is named Kiera or Kyra (don't care what :p), who was a Mandy Moore looke-alike. She actually has the voice, but she yodels a lot & it's freaking irritating. Then there's this girl from Houston who sounded like a ghost & the funny thing about her audition (aside from her voice) is that everytime she sings, it would rain even harder, & there would be thunder & lightning. But the moment she stops, the rain stops, too. Bwahahaha! Her voice can affect the weather (i'm only kidding about her affecting the weather of course, but it was really funny).

My favorite is William Hung, a civil engineering student from UC Berkeley. He "sang" Ricky Martin's "She Bangs" & it was hilarious. No feeling whatsoever, and he danced to a different beat, his hands swaying over his head. I also liked that he was very cheerful, even if he was cut ftom the show. He's now an instant celebrity, guesting on Ellen Degeneres' talk show & sang another Ricky Martin song, "Shake Your Bonbon" (which I think is funnier), internet star, and is asked to sing by several organizations for school events and stuff. 99.5RT even plays different remixes of his audition piece (and is contemplating on bringing him here in the summer.) hahaha! I learned that he has been asked to come back to American Idol for a special episode. I am so gonna watch that!

I just saw Suvivor All-Stars. obvious bang couch potato ako? Yay! Richard Hatch is gone. I don't like him. Never did like him. Thank goodness I wouldn't see his bare bum anymore. :D

EEEEP! ENOUGH OF REALITY TV!!!

hehehe... last na about tv :p promise! I was flipping channels last Wednesday, I think. And I came across Special Assignment on channel 2, coz I was intrigued. They were showing several couples going inside a motel, but they didn't pixelize the faces. And I thought to myself, "Shouldn't that be pixelized for their anonimity?" Then the reporter said, these were married people & that Anito motels now do not allow unmarried couples to check in. And I was like, "huh? what do they do, check for their marriage certificates?" And as soon as I thought that, the reporter said the same thing. Hahaha! That's serious loss in business for them. Then he said there was a prayer service before the couples can enter their suites. hehehe.. praying before doing the deed? That's new. There's also a pastor on site if the husbands & wives would like to have a "Marriage encounter". And get this, there's a Bible on the side table. Isn't it kinda weird? Then the reporter said something that made me realize why all these changes: The owner of the Anito chain of motels is now a Born-Again Christian.

Speaking of Christian, I woke up 5 am Wednesday to attend the 6:15 mass at the village church. Bait ko no? :D I figured, I haven't been that good of a person and that I have lots of "pagkukulang", waking up at 5 am on a national holiday (it was also the 18th Anniv. of the EDSA Revolution) isn't such a big deal. Time for sacrifice naman. :) It felt nice going to church very early in the morning. A good way to start the day, coz all day I felt great. Uuuiiii! ako ba nagsulat non? parang di bagay noh? :p

Ash Wednesday, one of my most awaited movies was shown in the US: "The Passion of the Christ". I really want to watch that movie. Critics say it's very violent, but isn't crucifixion a violent crime on a person? Sometimes I think that I might not be able to take it when I do watch it. It might be too much for me. But then again, I think I would be changed in some way when I do watch it. Anyone who doesn't feel affected after watching that movie would have to have a heart of stone. When it's shown here, I have to make myself ready for anything. :)

I'm listening to 24K Friday on 99.5 RT as I write this, and I'm enjoying it. I've actaully been listening since this morning, coz I like their programming on Fridays. They only play "old" songs, song I grew up with. It's nice coz aside from hearing good music, I can associate these songs to certain events in my life. Ahh.. yes. Jennie's on reminiscing mode every Friday. Heehee! German Girl by the Lotus Eaters on the background. Coolness! 80's new wave :D I'm waiting for my request to be played by Ranchie. I'm sure he'll play it soon, coz he always plays my requests on Fridays. :D Hahaha! siguradong-sigurado no? :p

Oh, I read Jason Mraz's journal yesterday. Nakaka-aliw!!! I loved the stuff he wrote about his stay here in the Philippines. Favorite ko na talaga sha. :D

Long entry na naman. :p daldal kasi eh! HAPPY WEEKEND! :D

back to "normal"

Tuesday, February 24, 2004

I couldn't sleep last night. As usual I was up until about 3 am. Nope not because I was used to sleeping at that time, but because I slept in a different room. My Lola arrived yesterday and she slept in my room, while I slept at Chie's room (she spent the night at Des' pad coz they were leaving at 5 am for their Strategic Planning in Laguna). Namahay ako. Errr... wrong term yata kasi di naman ako nagstay sa ibang bahay, ibang room lang. Uh, nangwarto? Bwahahah! Ampanget!

sidenote: Bilib ako sa lola ko. Imagine, she's already 84 years old & she commutes from Binangonan, Rizal to our house in Las Pinas, or sometimes to my tita's house in Dasmarinas, Cavite?! Yes you read it right, she's already 84! Matindi no? She's very strong for her age, but I get scared whenever she does that. My grandmother (paternal side) is very stubborn. No one can stop her if she wants to go. I think even if you lock the doors, she'll figure out a way to get out of it, just to go wherever she wants to go. Scary lang talaga coz even if she's strong, she shouldn't be doing that at her age. Minsan, talagang pinapagalitan sha ni daddy kasi ang stubborn talaga. Hay naku, all I can do i pray really hard that she'll arrive safely whereever she goes. We already told her that if she wants to go here, she'd ask one of my aunts to call us & we'd fetch her. No use. makulit talaga si lola. hay naku, I hope I won't be that stubborn when I reach her age. :p I doubt it though, coz one of the things I hate doing is commuting. Hahaha!

Anyway, back to my story: I was actually sleepy around 11 pm, but I still couldn't sleep. I tried reading, watching cable tv, writing on my journal, and listening to the radio, just so my eyes could feel tired enough for me to really have no choice but sleep. Nothing worked. If at all, listening to the radio made me more awake, coz I joined Neil's discussion topic & chatted with him & Mylin (hi sis!) & my cousin-in-law Rochelle (kahit sandali lang) at YM via gprs.

Funny lang, kasi pinagpilitan ko talagang maghanap ng signal. The signal at Chie's room was fluctuating so I kept disconnecting until I found the perfect place. Only trouble was, I had to contort myself. Mwahahah! Parang tanga noh? Just to go on YM, I had to make it difficult for myself, trying to look for a decent signal. But it was okay, coz when I found the perfect place, I was lying in bed, staying close to the wall. Needless to say, my thumbs were kinda sore when I logged out. Hahahaha! Parang ewan talaga!

Anyway, on to my Sunday story. It was my nephew Sean's, baptism. It was held at the Double V Resort in Dasmarinas, Cavite. Thanks to shortcuts & "friendship routes' we were there at the place within an hour, even if it was kinda far. We planned to leave the house by 8 am to be at the resort before 10 am, but as usual, ang tagal ni daddy. :p hehehe... bukuhin ba ang tatay ko? It would have been okay if we were late though coz the service, which was supposed to start at 10, started around 11:30.

We were among the first to arrive, except for some of my cousin-in-law Ate Cel's relatives. The place was nice, there were 4 slides. one big pool with a refreshment kiosk in the middle of the pool, a children's pool, a videoke "hut", and a fish pond (which was kinda murky though :p)

Before the service started, my cousins & I took lots of pictures (to be posted at a later date coz my sister hasn't uploaded it yet). Shempre, basta kaming magpipinsan, nakakatawa yung pictures. Only about half of us were there coz the others had a previous engagement & my other nephew Gian was sick. But even if we weren't complete, we had lots of fun.

When my cousin's pastor arrived, I whispered to my cousin Ate Weng, that their pastor looks like, Paolo Santos. Hahaha! No joke, they could pass off as twins. A while later, the service started. I was used to the Catholic way of baptism, but it was okay. :) Forty-five minutes later, I was a ninang once again.

Sean was a good baby. He didn't cry during the service & he seemed to like the water. :p He became kinda cranky after lunch though, maybe because it was kinda hot.

After lunch, we jumped on the pool. The water was darn cold. But it was colder if you stay out of it, so even if we looked liked prunes, we would stay in the pool. Besides, I love being in the water. My niece Hannah, like ninang Jennie, loves the water so we spent most of the time in the pool together. Well, aside from the fact that her mom, my cousin Weng, ddin't want to go in the pool coz it was cold (chicken!). My sister Chie took our crazy pictures in and out of the pool, coz it was a not a good day for her to swim. :p

In between pool time, we were at the videoke hut. Shempre, ako pa? di ko papalampasin yon. Hahahah! Mom, my aunts, my cousins Geebee, Weng & I had out turns with the mic. :D

All in all. it was a fun day, even if there was quite a number of us who couldn't be there, including my brother Toppet, coz he had a school project. (owws?! hehehe!) The weather was perfect. Not too sunny, but it also didn't rain. So I didn't get a tan or worse, a sunburn.

We got home around 6:30 pm, with a brief stop-over at a nearby mall to buy an illustration board for Toppet. Damn that trip to the mall! Brief though it was, Chie, Mom & I were able to buy a pair of shoes each, oops, 2 pala kay Chie. Hahahahah!!! Oki lang, I love the shoes! It was a black, pointy pair of mules. Pareho kami ng binili ni Chie. We both liked it and we didn't care if we have the same shoes, different sizes naman eh. Hahaha!

Anyhoo, this is another long entry so I'm gonna stop rambling now. Till next update, toodles!

♥ Jen

--------------------------
This is one of my favorite songs of the moment. I can't get enough of it:

Rainbow
South Border

Fallin' out, fallin' in
Nothings sure in this world, no no
Breaking down, breaking in
Never knowing what lies ahead
We can really never tell it all, no no

Say goodbye, say hello
To a lover or friend
Sometimes we could never understand
Why some things begin with just love
We can never have it all
No no no ohh

Refrain
(But oh/Cause oh), can't you see
That no matter what happens
Life goes on and on
And so baby just smile
Cause I'm always around you
And I'll make you see
How beautiful life is
For you and me

Chorus
Take a little time baby
See the butterfly's colors
Listen to the birds
That were sent to sing
For me and you
Can you feel me?
This is such a wonderful place to me
Even if there is pain now
Everything will be alright
For as long as the world still turns
There will be night and day
Can you hear me?
Yhere's a rainbow always
After the rain

Hittin' high, hittin' low
Win or lose, you should go
Yeah yeah
Getting warm, getting cold
Weather can be so good or bad
But baby, this is life so don't get mad
No no no

Refrain
Chorus


Life's full of challenges
Not all the time
We get what we want
But don't despair, my dear
You'll take it each trial
And you'll make it through the storm
Cause youre strong
My faith in you is clear
So I say once again
This world's beautiful
Let us celebrate life
That is so beautiful
So beautiful...

Chorus

Hehehe... I changed my mind. I went back to my previous blog skin. Jacque said she liked it better & I agree with her. Jacque, sipsip ako noh? MWAHAHAHA!!

Anyhoo, it's kinda late (ang tagal ko kasi inayos yung template). I will write more tomorrow. I'm tired. Spent the day swimming with my family in Cavite. SARAAAAAAP!!!

Happy BEER-day, Freg!

new look

Saturday, February 21, 2004

la lang... just experimenting with certain looks for my blog. thanks to Blogger, & especially to dreamwalker for designing it. i'm still making up my mind which skin to use. :)

i like this blog skin coz it has lots in it. there's a game, a calendar, a search bar, and a clock. cool, huh? only problem is the font color. i don't know if i should change it coz dreamwalker might not want me to. coz it his/her design after all. oh well...

My fraternal twin cousins Marlon & Lalaine, along with their mom went to the house today to surprise mom. Marlon called the house but the line was busy. He texted me but I was asleep so I didn't hear my phone. Then he texted my sister, Chie who was at the office. They tried calling the house & my phone, ut I was enjoying my sleep too much, hehehe (i was the only one left at the house). It turns out I kicked the phone in my room while I as asleep, & that was the reason why the line was busy. Yup, tulog-mantika ako kanina. bwahaha!

We had fun. Lots of yummy food & the company was great. I'm really grateful that I get along well with everyone (well, almost everyone -teehee!) in my family. Everytime we're together it's always a blast.

I got to talk to two of my friends online today, both of whom are in the US. It was waaaaaay cool! I really like hearing from friends and that's why I am glad there's internet & instant messengers, coz even if they're half a world away, i can still converse with them. Mylin is in San Fransisco and CeeKay is in New York (or were you in New Jersey when I talked to you? hahaha!) Basta, happy ako everytime I talk to any of my friends, lalo na shempre pag malayo sila at matagal na kaming di nakakapag-usap. Hooray for internet!!! :D

vampiric days are here again....

Let me get this out of my system first: JASON MRAZ is a HOTTIE! He's a great guitar player, his voice is just wow!, he is a good songwriter, and he's funny to boot. *sigh* i like him better than John Mayer. :)

He was at the RT booth this afternoon & I was listening, but i was disappointed coz it was Noel who interviewed Jason Mraz. Noel sounded so full of himself. All he could talk about was himself, and it seemed to me that with every question, he would incorporate something about himself. Kaines talaga! The interview would have gone way better had Alan done the interview (coz he always does the international artist interviews). It was a good thing naki-ride lang si Jason (ehem! close kami :p).

Mom, Chie & I went malling again. :p We were only supposed to buy a baptismal gift for Sean, but I bought two blouses as well. (Which reminds me, I should clean out my closet). :p haha! my credit cards should have been left somewhere.

Ooooh! swimming this Sunday. YaY!!!

-----------------------------------
Obviously, i like answering surveys. & yes, that's what I do when I can't sleep. :)

thanks to Clare for the questions.

I got two emails with the same subject this morning. One came from a friend and the other one from our high school batch yahoogroup. I opened my friend's email first. It was about a Filipina's engagement to her American boyfriend in Paris. The email said it was a very romantic story. So I clicked the link, intending to read their love story (i'm a sucker for romantic stories :p)

As soon as I got to the webpage and the picture loaded, I was shocked! Why? coz I know the girl. She's one of my HS batchmates. Add the fact that as far as I know, my friend has no connection whatsoever to her. Kaya din ako na-shock, kasi kumalat na sha sa internet.

I was happy for her especially after reading her story, even if we weren't friends back in HS coz we ran with different crowds,. Shempre, kinilig din ako. Hahahaha!

---------------------------------

One night in January, I couldn't sleep. Guess what I did? hehehee.. I got the digicam and took pictures of myself. Bwahahahah! Para akong tanga, click ng click, bura din naman ng bura kasi most of the pictures, either nose or eyes, & even my forehead lang ang lumalabas. If not, super lapit - nakakakilabot! I took the pics around 3 am. Yes, on one of my vampire days. ;) See what no sleep can do to a person. Mwehehehe!

Here are my "walang-magawa-hindi-makatulog" pics:

sunday fun day :)

Wednesday, February 18, 2004

WOO-HOO!!!! It worked! But then again, it was too small, next time i post, it has to be a bit bigger.

Anyhoo... the pictures were taken last Sunday. Mom & my aunts planned the trip Saturday afternoon & when I heard about it, I said, I wanted to go, too. Shempre, sasama ako, noh. Ako pa? hahaha! My sister wanted to go, too but she was at her friend, Des' place (coz they went to the UP Fair, Saturday night), besides, we wouldn't fit in the car.

I told myself the night before that I was gonna sleep early coz we planned to leave before 5 am. Why that early? Well, coz we wanted to be in Tagaytay before 7 am (para malamig pa , chaka susunduin pa namin mga tita ko ).

Well... I still wasn't able to sleep early, not because lumabas na naman pagka-vampire ko. But because one of our dogs, Piggy (obviously, mataba sha), got out of house and was running around at the vacant lot behind our house. Hay, naku! Asar talaga! I thought she was just at our bahay-kubo sa likod, but she got past the fence. Dad & I tried to catch her, but everytime she'd see dad, she'd just run farther. I on the other hand, would follow her. Stupid! It was really dark outside and I forgot to take a flashlight. I was relying on the moonlight. E diba, super duwag ako? Hahaha! On our way back to the house, Piggy stopped and growled at someone. Near sighted me could only see a white thing walking towards me. My heart started pumping wildly... i was terrified! But it turned out to be dad, I could only see his white shirt clearly. Tang ina! tinakot ko sarili ko. Sa sobrang labo ng mata, white shirt lang ng daddy ko nakita ko.

I wanted to strangle our dog for making me chase after her in the middle of the night, but she looked so cute staring at me as I was scolding her. She looked liked she could understand what I was saying and was telling me, "I'm sorry. I won't do it again."

I was able to sleep around 2 am, then my i woke up at 4 am coz the alarm went off. It was time for me to get ready for our trip. As usual, I said, five minutes more, which turned to another 15 minutes in bed. Mom & I left the house a little past 5 to drive to Manila & pick up my aunts & my cousin, then drove to Tagaytay. No traffic! That's what I like about leaving the house early. We got to Tagaytay a few minutes before 7. It was still foggy and the temperature was heavenly. There was a strong breeze. SARAP!

Since we left quite early, we weren't able to have breakfast. So we went to McDonald's TM first to have breakfast. My aunt said, we had to drive for more than an hour, just to have breakfast at McDo. Hahahaha!

After breakfast, we went to the Palace in the Sky, coz we haven't been there before and we were so used to the other sites. It was quite a ride. Steep road going to the highest point in Tagaytay. It was beautiful there. Cooler and more windy. More fog. good thing we brought our jackets. The view from up there was amazing. So I snapped away. There was a wishing well so we all took turns making wishes I don't know how long we were there. We just enjoyed the view and the cool weather, snapped pics. It was nice.

After that we went to the market to buy lots of pinapples to bring home to Manila. And of course, Collette's Buko Pie, panucha, espasol, and other treats.

On the way home, we decided to go to my two cousin's houses (they're neighbors) in Dasmarinas, Cavite. Had lunch there and my aunt lita was happy coz she was able to visit her two children and their families. My niece Hannah and my nephews, Nikko and baby Sean were so cute! Specially baby Sean. Hannah is a little kikay kid hahaha! kanino kaya nagmana?

I was able to get about an hour's sleep at my kuya's house. Which was a good thing coz I was really sleepy . We left their house around 4 pm and was home by 6 pm (after bringing my aunts home). It was a fun Sunday... even if I was kinda sleepy.

This Sunday we'll see each other again coz it's baby Sean's christening. Yep, I'm a godmother again. Lemme see.... as of today, I have 7 godsons & goddaughters. Yikes! dumadami ang tataguan ko sa pasko!

Swimming right after the christening. WOO-HOO!! mangingitim na naman ako.

------------------------------

valentine musings

Saturday, February 14, 2004

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!

Normally, I wouldn't be this chipper on valentine's day. i always thought that this was just another ploy to make us blow off our paychecks. hehehe! Or it's just another cheesy celebration. Traffic is horrendous, and if you are one of those "slow" persons who didn't book in advance, you'd end up somewhere not to your liking. Bah! That sounded bitter! Hahahaha!


Nah, but really. I was never a "valentine's day kind of person" , whether I had someone special or not. It felt so commercialized, and that everything done on that day felt like it was done just because it was V-day and not because it was a special day. Like it was done only because it was expected.


I personally think that everyday should be valentine's day. That we should try to make everyday special for that special someone, not because it was valentine's day.


But this year, I didn't feel like that. I myself don't understand why. It just felt different this year. I have this very close friend, but in all honesty, I want us to be more than friends. I just don't understand if he's torpe (I don't know the English word for it) or he doesn't like me that much. Eh, it's weird. He's weird. Hahaha! But I'd rather have those moments with him than none at all. Eh, wtf?! That sounded pathetic.


But seriously, I really like him. He makes me laugh and we can talk about anything under the sun, be it serious talks or non-sensical ones. I just can't seem to open up to him about how I feel (shouldn't he be the one to open up first? Or am I being archaic? Is it time for girl power?). We have lots of things in common, music being one of them, and laughing, eating (hehe!), dang it! We even like the same playstation games. Ugh! now I'm all giggly. And I am NOT giggly!


More importantly, he makes me feel special. He made my heart skip a beat again (OMG! Why am I like this? Ask my family, I am NEVER mushy!) He's the first guy to make me smile again after  @#%$! Michael broke my heart (who I hope will not call me anymore. I hope he falls off the face of the earth - bwahahaha! kidding i hope he's happy with that @#%$! girl he left me for).


Now I ask myself, do I just like him coz he made me forget Michael (though I must admit I still miss him sometimes)? Or do I really like him a lot? I guess I have to decide first before we have that talk



Tama na! Ang baduy ko na!!!!

excitement from my boring existence :p

Friday, February 13, 2004

I had an "adventure" last week. I woke up exactly a week ago today, with an aching right ring finger. Apparently some freaking insect bit it overnight. I didn't mind it much, until about lunch time when it started to itch and ache more. Mom, my sister and I had a "shopping appointment" (hehehe!) so i didn't mind it. I just took pain medicine and got an anti-itch ointment. And lo and behold, by the time we got home, my finger was so painful. Stubborn me didn't want to go to the doctor, so I just looked up our medicine books and read what one should do about insect stings. I first got an ice pack (to help relieve the swelling), and made a baking soda paste, which the book said would help with the sting and the itch. I was fine after that.

But around 2:30 am, my finger was double it's normal size. It was horrible! As in! My hand looked like an inflated surgical glove and my finger looked like a sausage. Ewww! Now I can laugh when I remember how it looked like, but last week, I was scared. I even cried coz it was throbbing so badly and iIthought my hand was gonna burst!

 

And of course, i didn"t mind it, coz I felt the swelling would go down after some time. Besides, I didn't want to wake up my mom and dad coz I know they'd take me to the hospital. And I absolutely hated hospitals and needles! 

 

But then I got scared coz I could feel the blood pumping, and it felt like my veins were getting squished coz of the swelling. Finally at 3 am I woke mom and dad and told them my hand looked and felt horrible. Then we went to the nearby hospital. The doctor on call took one look at my finger and said, "What bit you? You had an allergic reaction to the sting." I wanted to say, "Hello? Don't you think I know that? I wouldn't be here if I didn't."

 

Then, horror of horrors! He gets this big syringe and told the nurse to get antihistamine. I felt weak-kneed. I asked the doctor, "Couldn't I take antihistamine tablet instead?" And of course he laughed coz maybe he thought that it was funny for someone my size to be scared of a needle. (If I didn't feel bad, I would have smacked him. Hahaha! But he was there to help me so I didn't.) The doctor said the antihistamine shot would take effect faster than the tablet. Then i said, "It's fine with me, I endured the pain for a day already, a couple of hours wouldn't matter."

 

I kinda glanced at my mom and she was looking at like she was saying, "Earlier you were bawling your eyes out and now that you're here, you don't want to feel better?"Hhehehe! Long story short, I took the shot (with my eyes closed, of course ). then I was told to take antibiotics (geez, 90 bucks a pop and I was to take 15) and antihistamines. So after a week of discomfort, mind-numbing itch (I tell you, it was torture, the closest way I could describe it is that the itch was coming from the inside. That no matter how you scratch it, it wouldn't make a difference), and ugly looking right hand (hard to eat with my left hand, but at least, I was relieved of dishwashing duties - mwehehe!), now I am back to normal. all I have to do is find the freaking insect that bit me, and kill it all it's relatives. BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

 

I won a compilation cd from my favorite radio station the other day. Every afternoon, they have this game called "the pyramid game" where listeners would call in and answer 5 level questions about anything. Last Tuesday, it was about anything Brad Pitt. I didn't really want to join, I was just in my room listening while I was dressing up (I just got out of the shower). Then, several people called in and couldn't answer the last question which was something like this: "Which movie did Brad Pitt's name first appeared in the opening credits?" I knew the answer coz I read it somewhere and I've seen the movie on cable before. The answer was, Happy Together. Then I dialled the station's number and the deejay, Alan picked up. Hahaha! He said I sounded like I knew the answer. We had idle chit-chat first, then I answered. And of course, I won! hahaha! That's the second time I won something from the station. The first was two tickets to the Limp Bizkit concert (which was cancelled at the last minute :( ). So woo-hoo! for me.

 

Anyhoo, this has been quite a long entry. Till next time! Au revior!
