80 minus 30 equals 50

... and that is all I (or we) will get this month.

At ano raw... "happy?"

Sino'ng happy?! SINO'NG HAPPY?!!

iTunes shuffle

Here's an iPod game that I got from my friend, hollerboy's site. And since my pod decided to be useless again (it won't cooperate with my mac), I'm using iTunes for this purpose instead.

Here's how it works:
  • put iPod (in my case, iTunes) on shuffle
  • press forward for each question
  • use the song title for each question even if it makes no sense (NO CHEATING!)
  • set to bold the questions with the answers that make sense

Here goes...
  • How are you feeling today? Freak Me (Another Level) - actually, this week's been so freaky, so far...
  • Will you get far in life? As I Lay Me Down (Sophie Hawkins)
  • How do your friends see you? Stronger (Sugababes)
  • Will you get married? Waters of March (Jareau)
  • What's your best friend's theme song? Love Me Again (Lani Misalucha) - para ngang yung isa, gustong mahalin siya ulit ni... ahem!
  • What is the story of your life? Hill Where The Lord Hides (Chuck Mangione)
  • What was high school like? Everything New (Natalie)
  • How can you get ahead in life? Honesty (Kaskade) - kasi andami-dami ko daw secrets! kelangan nang magpaka-totoo!
  • What is the best thing about your friends? Agua De Beber [Water to Drink] (Kymaera) - they're always refreshing!
  • What is today going to be like? Keep On (Robbie Williams)
  • What is in store for this weekend? Hallelujah (Bamboo)
  • What song describes you? Scars [Stronger for Life] (Corrinne May)
  • To describe your grandparents... Girlfriend ('N Sync with Nelly)
  • How is your life going? Enjoy (Janet Jackson) - of course!
  • How does the world see you? The apl Song (The Black Eyed Peas)
  • Will you have a happy life? Rock The Boat (Aaliyah)
  • What do your friends really think of you? Weapon of Choice (Fatboy Slim)
  • Do people secretly lust after you? Feel Good, Inc. (Gorillaz feat. De La Soul) - totoo ba yan?
  • How can I make myself happy? Heart of the Matter (India.Arie)
  • What should you do with your life? I Am An Illusion (Rob Thomas)
  • Will you ever have children? Someday We'll Know (Mandy Moore)

Try it too! :-)


Honestly, every time I push the forward button, I worry that the shuffle would stop at the songs that I would bow my head in shame for having in my collection. *cough* jologs songs *cough*

I admit it! I, once again, ate more than I could handle... or digest, that is.

I didn't have breakfast or brunch. Lunch came late at mid-afternoon, so all I could think about was FOOD!

Holler, Esme and I agreed to eat at Chowking. When we settled the "where" I already thought of the "what." What to eat, that is: A bowl of beef wanton noodles and one boneless bangus meal.

When the food I ordered were delivered to our table, Holler and Esme were dumbstruck learning to whom those belong.

"So may itatayo kang bagong studio?" Holler taunted me, referring to my ordered food as "Constructi-Meal," meaning: meal for construction workers (the opposite of Kiddie Meal).

"I didn't have breakfast," I replied.

"Ay hindi halata!" he said sarcastically.

I ate like there's no tomorrow. I kept shoving food into my mouth because I couldn't feel my stomach fill up. They say it takes 30 minutes before you feel the food in your tummy, and that's exactly
what happened to me.

After the feast, we hailed a cab to get back to the office. When I got in the cab, I felt a resistance in my tummy as I sat down. It didn't like being compressed so it started to stage a revolution.

My tummy caused me so much pain for more than two hours, until I got to fully digest my meal.

And it didn't help seeing the guy I have a huge crush on while undergoing the ordeal of a consequence of my gluttony.

iPod, reloaded ;-)

The Rihanna/Chris Brown concert is seven days away. That means, I have to soak up the songs of these two for the rest of the week so I could enjoy singing along these artists at the show. So I grabbed my good-'ole 3-year-old iPod, plugged it into my computer - with the intention of loading the Rihanna & Chris Brown songs into it, and ended up waiting for the transfer process in vain. The little gears in iTunes beside the name of my iPod just won't stop turning, but the progress bar doesn't move.

So I did the no-no: I hot-swapped the iPod. (For non-computer nerds: I unplugged the iPod with the iTunes gears still running.) And then I plugged it again. And it hung again. I hot-swapped it again. And then the computer reported that the freaking device cannot be read by the system anymore, and that I have to restore it. That means, all of the songs in my iPod will be erased.

Fine! I restored the device to its factory settings.

"iTunes, are you happy yet?"

And so, here I am again, reloading my collection of songs into my iPod. This has happened to me more than I wish to count. Something tells me that this is what I get from always kidding with my friends who have iPods that I'd have their players formatted everytime they plugged their device into the PC I use at the office.

Another tells me that I should get a new pod. But my budget protests.

i need a vaykay!

Drag me to the beach. I don't care if the weather is acting up. I need to swim. I need to feel the sand between my toes. I need to skip on rocks.

I need to be in an absolutely different environment from my workplace.


I need a vacation. And I want it so bad

up again!

I used to have multiple blogs in Blogger. But I've moved them all in my Multiply account. But sometimes you've got to maintain a blog here to get connected to friends who call Blogger their home.

I've erased all the rants that I have posted here, so I'm starting anew... and reposting some of the entries I made in my other blog.

Gosh! *wipes sweat* This is gonna be quite a job maintaining multiple blogs in multiple sites, but hey, it can be fun! :)

So here. Read my brand new joneses - fat-free. ;-)
