They say that I am the spitting image of my mother when she was younger. If only I wasn't fat ^^; Now it's my sister that's getting all the mother-daughter comparisons.

But I say this, because it seems I've also inherited my mother's intense migraines. I wasn't able to get out of bed for work earlier. Seems like I'll have more pills to swallow in the mornings.



My weekend was good. Went to Olongapo to visit a family friend, then we all went to Bolinao, Pangasinan for some beach times.

... and that's just that, really. Nothing remarkable. Didn't get drunk, didn't do much exploring of the beach...


Currently loving Pam's Mukuro and Shini's Chrome (because I've always loved your Hibari, Pam ^^)

Happy birthday to [ profile] allslashedout & [ profile] navi_per_mari~ ♥

Faaaaaaye, MM & I brought you a present! It's with her, I hope you get it soon :3
Varaliiiiii,... hmm, I'll have to think of a present for you! ^^


Woke up very early for nothing earlier. Was v. irritated for the rest of the day. Ergh. I'll sleep this off later.

I love my new default icon. Audrey Kawasaki's girls all might look the same, but... I like all of their haunted looks that way. Along with the sensual way that they look, peering out of their half-lidded eyes.

[ To know the difference between a geiko and an oiran, look at their hair ornaments. A geiko or even a maiko will have fewer hair ornaments than an oiran will. Also, an oiran will have her obi tied in front as opposed to its usual position at the back. I'm... still a bit vague on the differences between oiran and geiko, but Wiki tells me that the oiran predated the geiko. More readings are needed. ]

... more icons too xP


Note to self: do not forget to check her blog often for updates. I love the way she writes.


1:37a.m. Have to wake up at 9a.m. Have to meet MM in Makati at 1p.m. Have to snap to fixing my sleep schedule once and for all to make it in time for work. Everyday. At 8a.m.

- your third shower for the day. Argh, this heat ;__;

Right. Some overdue memes

My college barkada taught me the art of patiently digging through the bookpiles in Booksale and Books for Less to find good books, odd books and the books that I want at prices that were way, waaay cheaper than the brand-new ones. Sure, the books are yellowing, have a few pages creased and/or loose from their binding, but as long as they're still readable, I'm all for it.

I've lost count of how much of my current books are all from Booksale, but my last (... way back in September, unfortunately) acquisitions were The Chronicles of Chrestomanci vol. 1 & Watership Down.

It was really lame of me, but I just recently discovered that is also selling second-hand books online (aside from their Moleskines~ ♥). And after clicking on Pao's plurk about the books he wanted from the site, I immediately followed...

... and quickly had 7 books on my wishlist >_< a;lsdfjasd Diane Ackerman, I can now read your A Natural History of Love *___*

So I've just signed up for an account there, and whaddaya know, Jasper is holding a contest. Winner gets to have a hardbound, signed copy of Neil Gaiman's (and Michael Reaves too, oops) Interworld. All one has to do is comment on that entry with your favorite Neil Gaiman quote. Plus point if you pimp the contest on your blog and link it back to the blog/contest entry.

So, so, so. Here's my post (XD). My quote is, of course, from Sandman. I had a lot of nice quotes there (... currently looking for the journal where I wrote them all down in, orz) but there is always one quote that sticks.

Omnia mutantur, nihil interit. Everything changes, but nothing is truly lost.

(... probably in vain, but I'm still going to order a 3-piece set of squared, pocket cahier journals so it's still all good XD)

The singer, not the color. (... as long as it's not neon pink,anyway)

That's two songs of hers, now, that have become "touchstone" tunes of my life. Yes, I have songs that define my life, or at least how I see it. It's just a few songs though, and for the life of me I cannot remember all of them right now ;__; My memory's really been crap for the past couple of years now.

Anyway, from Pink, it's "Just Like A Pill" and "Sober"

(A characteristic of a touchstone tune: it gets repeated over and over again on my player, for a week at least)

... I guess I have to search my scattered music collection to re-discover the touchstone tunes I had all through those years.

How about you guys? Do you have songs that have defined your life/ a moment/ moments in your life? Share~

Gender Identity / Sexuality in RP meme from A.R. )

... not much in the way of answers, I'm afraid. But ahahaha, missing Poly all over again ^^ MARIANNE I MISS YOUR LUCIFER o/ (along with Brad's Harry, A.R.'s Evey, Ruxi's BEST ROSIEL EVAR, Mary's Faye, THE WHOLE SANDMAN CREW, etc, etc, etc.) And this has also reminded me that I'm such a bad rp-er these past few months. Well, other than work eating me alive and such, but in the sense that it has been a long time since I have finished a thread. orz.

Iiiiiin other news, my sister gave me a Vivitar ultra wide & slim camera, along with 4 color and 2 black & white film rolls last Christmas ♥ Already took some shots of our photoshoot in Malacañan Palace earlier. I'm going to spend the rest during my godson Wolf's first birthday party this Saturday :3 I can't wait~

... right. Tired as heck. Will sleep and wake up early and finish early too.

is so much love ♥

... come to think of it, there are two prompts over at the 2nd Mononoke fic/art-athon that involve a cross-over between Natsume and Mononoke.

... ahi :3 Nyanko-sensei~


I... don't want to put up another anime to watch for 2009 list because I still have to finish the anime that are lying around here, argh. So, I'm just going to stack said anime cds where I can see them really easily and stick a post-it on top saying 'TO WATCH". I... think that will work? XDDD

So! Going to finish s1 of Natsume Yuujinchou tonight, will start on Toshokan Sensou a bit later, RP in between (STEP 1 OF REVIVING CHROME MUSE AT PLURK DONE! TIME FOR SB), aaaaaaaand enjoy the weather too :3

Christmas Wishlist:

Step 1

- Make a post (public, friendslocked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fun ("I'd love a Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

- If you wish for real possible things, make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.

- Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ so that the holiday joy will spread.

Step 2

- Surf around your friendslist (or friendsfriends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part:

- If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--do it.

You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call.

There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

keep it simple )

My workload has tapered off somehow, so today finds me going through all of [ profile] stitchedophelia's khr fics. Will also go and update myself with SB shenanigans as well.

Happy Birthday [ profile] caduceum~

Went to their place earlier to eat delicious, falling-off-the-bones ribs, baked macaroni, potato salad, and that Red Ribbon Smores cake :3 Going to their house always assures me of a good time and great eats. Got to see [ profile] traffic_likeme there too, and we had fun playing games on his Wii (Super Mario Galaxy so cuuute :3) and watching Little Britain.

B-but I frigging lost one of the rose earrings that [ profile] lethologica gave me for my birthday. My favorite pair of earrings is not a pair anymore ;_____; Aaaaargh. I... can't understand how it could have... slipped off.

... brb. Hating myself right now.

Begin to conjure nightmares:

bare notebooks

poems without sound

breasts without nipples

a penis without a head

a mirror without tears

a palm without sperm

a saxophone without sorrow

a guitar without satan

a diary without a cloud

a painting without blood

a piano without raindrops

a battlefield without snow

a minefield without children's rhymes

a prison cell without sky

a rathole without a skull

a brothel without poetry

killing fields without a rainbow

a funeral without a crying baby

oceans without decaying ships and bloated bodies

serenades without poison

wine without wizards

a brother without a knife

a church with a dead god

a window without moonlight

There are a lot of beautiful things in this world. Cold and brittle, soft and warm. Everything else in between.

You are one. You are. I hope that when your eyes pass over these words, your heart skips a beat and your mind just knows that you are.

Slowly, surely.

Ask me a question -- it can be about anything from my favorite color to something more personal -- and in return I get to ask you one back... and so on and so forth until we either discover we hate each other or lose interest.

Drop post up at poly_tldr

Stared at the monitor for a good 15 minutes before typing it all out. Took another 15 minutes before I actually hit the Post button. Definitely on the list of my hardest posts to make .__.

But... its finally done, and perhaps I can start concentrating on what needs to be done with RL. But I realized that denying myself the online life I had before this job happened just made me more miserable, really. So along with tweaking with RL, I'll slowly go back to surfing the sites I love, chatting with online friends, commenting on lj entries, and so on and so forth ^^ Then... will go back to Poly! ^^

Anime to watch, manga to catch up on and read, here I come! Again! xD

But I haven't really abandoned the internets for the past month or so! I've been... )

Oh, and I'm calling this re-claiming my online/fandom life xD

Yes, still alive. Need to update on a lot of things. But first...

Freaking Firefox won't connect me to the internet. Using Flock to surf. Is slow. Give me my Firefox back. Waaaaaaaak 0__o

Okay, okay. *breathes*

Help, f-list? It isn't the anti-virus (Norton), firewall, or the internet connection (... obviously). What could it be?
