This entry was for MAY 7…

[Original post from blossom_017 @ Tabulas.com.]

I startlingly awoke to the alarm of my father’s cellphone. My brother had it alarmed at 6 in the morning. What a great time to wake up on a vacation. He had it alarmed because today they will have the test to determine their standing during the summer classes. Anyway, after i woke up, i grudgingly patted and started shaking my brother to awoke him.

ME: Mikey, gising na! 6 am na!
MIKEY: Hmm… (still asleep)
ME: Mikey, gising na. Bahala ka. Di na kita gigisingin mamaya.
MIKEY: Hmm.. Gising na ko..

Then a second cellphone started to alarm. That was my sister’s. My brother had probably set it up to insure that he would wake in time. I woke up Mariah and said:

Me: Mariah, nagaalarm cell mo.
Mariah: Hmmm…
Me: Mariah…

Then Mariah woke up and turned it off. A few seconds later, Ate Hanny, our househelper, entered our room and said, “Mikey, gising na! 6 o’clock na!”…

And with that, Mikey sat upright and directly went out of the room. And that’s how my day started.

After insuring that Mikey was really awake, I returned back to bed and went back to bed. My dream continued.

Naayos na ni Kelly ang kanyang blog sa tabulas. Good thing. Tinawagan pa daw nya ko para lang balitaan non.. hehe.. baliw talga yon…

Ganito kasi yon.. Last night, I had a chat with kelly. Sa text lang.. He was asking me where to place the html script in the template page. I gave him the directions and he still could NOT get it. It was a very frustrating scene. And i went to bed wishing that he would be able to place the script wherever. Anyway, I dreamt that he had already scripted it and he was so glad. (I’m glad for him, too.) I just hope taht my dream would come true, for humanity’s sake.

I could not toss and turn. MY EAR ACHES. Rather, my pre-auricular sinus HURTS. It’s inflamed… Infected. It really hurts. I couldn’t sleep properly because of it. So i woke up again at 8 in the morning. Ate Hanny kindly woke me up. It’s because we have to open the shop early. So I ate my breakfast. I had one pandesal with liver spread. Yummy! and i had a cup of coffee, too. Then my parents woke up. They checked on my pre-auricular sinus and my father suggested that i shouldn’t go to the shop, today. I couldn’t work there today because this damn pre-auricular sinus is preventing me to. That was good, in a way, I need some rest. But, inside, my heart and mnd were protesting… noooo!!!! I must have a blog entry.. No! (During the past few days, I have been attempting to study HTML. So that I could make a TROPANG PAUSO website. I started by editing my tabulas… and i guess i’m learning something then.)

But then… my inner protest has no effect. I just went back to sleep until it was about 10. I feel and look GROGGY. In short, BANGAG. I haven’t even combed my hair. Nor have i brushed my teeth. I really feel BAD. Anyway, I sat at the sofa and turned to watching TV. Images flashed on the screen and I had a hard time registering it on my mind. the images were of the cartoon series SABRINA. I like that cartoon. But still, i like Lizzie McGuire better. After having watched it, I lied down on the sofa and started reading “One Hundred Years of Solitude” by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I finished the first chapter and would probably read the next one later. Then I grabbed the remote and looked up the schedule of movies in all the movie channels. No movie that I would want to watch. Then I flipped the channel to Starworld. Now, I gotta see this. American Idol. I haven’t watched this for a long time. Today’s episode was with celebrity guest Barry Manilow. The IDOLS were to sing his songs with their own version. (of course). And they did justice to his popular songs by singing it really great. My favorites there are: Jennifer Hudson, Jasmine Trias, La Toya London and Fantasia (i forgot her surname.) Anyway, I really admire the way they sing. And i hope i could sing like them. SOmeday.

Now, its time for lunch. And we had monggo. I like that viand. I even ate 2 servings. (is there a problem with me? i know a lot hate that food, but i really like it.. if my mom’s the cook.. 😛 ) Oh.. gosh.. I only have 2 servings when our viand is sinigang. I try to eat less. And i think i’ve done a good job.. coz since the summer vacation, i lost 6 pounds. good for me. Anyway, at 2 started to shower. (I’ll be having my xray later.. for UP enrolment.) I sat in “my throne” when Mariah called my name…

MARIAH: Ate Monique… (some unintelligible words followed)
ME: Ano??
ME(again): Ano? ano ba sinasabi mo? (then i opened the bathroom door.)
MARIAH: Ate Monique, ‘Ganda ng Pare Ko’ na…
ME: Ah…
MAMA: ‘Ganda ng Pare Ko’ na daw..
ME:Ah.. Mama.. dali.. watch it. baka andon si ****.

Then off she hurried to watch it after replying “okey”. I grabbed my towel and went out the showers. I gotta see if she’s there.. Haha.. (another conversation..) this took place when i was already at the living room..

ME: Ano, pinakita na?
MARIAH: di pa..
ME: fave ko jan si Sheira Mae Roque. (i don’t know if that’s her name.. basta it’s roque..)
MAMA: di naman maganda si ****.
ME: (nods in agreement) payat at matangkad.
MAMA: wala namang b**bs. At pangit pa magsmile. (while imitating how **** smiles.)
ME: (laughing inside) oo nga.. hehe…

Then i stood in front of the TV for a while clad only in a piece of towel. After a while of hunting her down on the screen, she CAN’T be found. I don’t knw what happened to her. hehe.. so i went back to the showers and took a bath. i came out and asked. “Pinakita ba?” and then mariah answered. “hindi eh.” I answered back, “lagi naman syang di pinapakita eh..” pOOr her..

Anyway..off i went to my room and began to get dressed…

and so I was ready to go and have my xray taken.. and hopefully my pre-auricular sinus would be taken care off, too. So my mom and i went to the shop to deliver there the food tht she would sell.. I went directly to the bathroom. (i left my toothbrush there..hehe.. and the onei had left at home was an old one.. and i dare not use it.. lol..) after brushing my teeth, i went out and my dada said that i would be accompanied by mommy.. aka… my grandma… kinda obnoxious.. i wouldn’t say anything about her.. i would sound really bad..anyway.. i had my xray and she accompanied me to the drug store. alas.. my “Thing” would be taker care of. It really hurts. So I got a text from my mother saying that i should go directly home coz she don’t wanna see my gradma’s face there.. (some family problem).. and here i am.. writing this entry in a real journal.. and hopefully i would get this copied in my tabulas account.. Hopefully, i could go there later…

hopefully.. as for now.. i gotta get some rest.. and probably read my book..

All for now.. KISSES…. :loveeyes: :loveeyes: :loveeyes: :loveeyes:

P.S. I’ll be inserting an image of a pre-auricular sinus of another person.. In case, you would be wondering what a pre-auricular sinus looks like.. notice the thing i’ve encircle… i’ve labeled it for you..

Pre-Auricular Sinus

this is not me in the picture.. obviously, it’s a guy.. and he also got a pre-auricular sinus.. anywy.. imagine that being inflamed.. it gets large.. and that’s how i look today… ps..the left ear too..

What You Do To Me

[Original post from blossom_017 @ Tabulas.com.]

Disclaimer: I got this article at from ~moonsilk.
WHAT YOU DO TO ME

They sat on the cold stone bench in the half-light of sunset. She smiled at him, and he reached out with a warm hand, drew her closer, and set his arm around her shoulders, letting her rest her head against his shoulder.

Skye breathed in deeply, taking in the scent of the grass in the green, the sun on the horizon, the wind in her hair.. Beside her, Patrick was silently taking in the beautiful view, his arm still around her, pressing her close.

He’s always been like that.. ever since I met him. Skye thought, looking up at her friend, loving the way the sunlight cast shadows across his well-sculpted features.

Always the sweet one, unconsciously making your heart beat like a war drum when he draws near.. but he does it to every girl he knows.. he’s not afraid of getting physical.. he’s not afraid of putting his arms around a girl, whether she’s his girlfriend, or just his best friend.

She loved him. Longed for him with an aching of the heart intense enough to make her cry. She craved his touch, his smile..

But he didn’t know. Not yet, at least. Skye moved closer to Patrick’s comforting warmth.

Standing outside the bar, watching her breath turn into pretty white clouds in the freezing air, Skye waited for Patrick to come out. He soon emerged, dressed in a thick jacket. He took one glance at her faintly smiling blue lips and jumped.

“My god, you’re freezing to death!” He wrapped her in his jacket, and took her in his arms. Skye smiled thankfully up at him, and reaching up, tweaked his nose gently. The expression on his face was hidden in the shadows, but he slid a warm hand over Skye’s cheek, tipping her face up so he could look into her eyes.

I thought he was going to kiss me then. Skye thought bitterly. I thought wrong. He’s never kissed me.. everytime I thought he was going to, he’d simply laugh, take my hand, and walk me home.

~*~

“How are you?” she asked warily, picking his hand up and letting it drop back down. “Sleepy.” he replied softly, smiling at her. “Iced Vodka does strange things to me.” It was then that Skye saw her chance. She moved slightly away from him. “Patrick..” she whispered. He smiled at her, and his warm brown eyes shone. “And that would be me.”

She touched him softly on the arm. “Do you know what you do to me?” He leaned closer, tipping her chin up with a gentle finger, flirtingly. “No..” his lips were dangerously close to hers. “tell me.”

Skye took in a deep breath, inhaling the sunset and the cold wind.. closed her eyes, and gently pushed him away.

“You make waking up painful.” There was no smile on her lips, and she was dead serious.

Patrick stared at her, puzzled. “What?” Skye glared fiercely at him through blue eyes. “You make waking up each morning so damn painful.. simply because I just can’t leave you in my dreams.” She held up a trembling hand. “You make my hands shake, my knees weak, and my heart stop.”

She shut her eyes tight, breathing uneven, knowing very well that this was probably the stupidest thing she had ever done in her whole life. But she knew it had gone too far to turn back.

“You make me cry into my pillow each night, you make me unfocused, you make me forget every other boy I have ever loved.”

“Wait.. Skye..” Patrick stammered helplessly, but Skye raised a hand, staring at him with bright eyes. “You make every star in the sky seem like a wish gone wrong. You make every dream I ever had pale in comparison. You make my nights darker, and my days with you full of light..”

A tear slid slowly down her cheek as her voice grew choked.

“You make me realize true heartbreak, and you make me realize true love. You make me wait for you, then you never show up or follow through.”

“Skye..” Patrick caught her hand in his, and she made no move to pull away. She was crying freely now, eyes bright with tears. “I’ve always thought of you as a friend.. but..”

Skye touched his lips, and he fell silent. “Let me finish.. I just want to get this out of my system.”

She took a deep breath, glanced at the stars above, and wiped her tears away with a stubborn hand. In a voice meant to be strong, but with the faintest hint of wistful sadness.. she whispered.

“You make me crave, you make me cry.. you make me wish, and you make me die slowly.. day by day.”

Skye stared up at the young man who was her best friend.

“Patrick, don’t you understand?! You make me love you.”

Silence.

Then one took the other in his arms and kissed her, under the light of a thousand stars and one moon.

TO ALL YOU GUYS: READ!

[Original post from blossom_017 @ Tabulas.com.]

Note: got this from ~hannahglimpse
1. That sometimes it doesn’t really matter how a guy looks, it’s the vibes that matters.

2. That most of the time, girls can’t remember how a guy really looks like, just maybe his voice…or his eyes…or his smile.

3. That if you can make a girl laugh, you are “IN”. Girls would rather spend their time laughing and talking to an ugly guy than bear with a non-interesting, pea-brained, humorless Baldwin.

4. That guys and girls can be just FRIENDS and not necessarily MORE than that. Sometimes guys are perceived only as friends and unwelcome lovers.

5. That it’s not entirely easy for girls to reject guys.

6. And that it’s not the guy’s fault when he’srejected.

7. That when a girl says “NO”; by golly, she MEANS it!

8. That girls don’t really appreciate being called “babe” or “chio bu” or “chickababes” or “chicks” in their presence.

9. That it’s not the girl’s fault if she’s not automatically perfect – meaning, so what if she’s horizontally-challenged? READ: Fat!

10. That it’s a fact of life that guys mature three years behind girls (hey, girls DO mature faster than guys do!)

11. That most of the time (actually ALL the time), girls appreciate it when guys act like gentlemen – like the opening-of-the-car-doors kind (tama, tama)

12. That certain girls are acutely aware when guys are teasing each other about certain girls (especially when those ‘certain girls’ are right there).

13. That when guys act like gays (as in joke around), girls get chills down their spines even if it’s all fake.

14. That the smell of sweat and Polo Sport combined isn’t exactly considered “SEXY”

15. That it’s really impolite to stare at girls no matter how sexy or skinny the girl is (hey, you don’t see girls openly staring at guys! There is such a word as SUBTLE!)

16. That it doesn’t take 2 minutes for a girl to look beautiful – it takes a much longer period of time. (Admit it, don’t you think it’s worth the wait?)

17. That when girls act really bitchy, it’s just one of those days…like a specific period of time in a month or she doesn’t like u…

18. That when girls don’t say anything when they’re with guys, it doesn’t mean that they don’t know anything…or don’t LISTEN.

19. That when guys talk, girls listen; and when girls talk, they expect the same amount of interest and attention.

20. That if a guy can turn off their emotions like faucets, well…girls CAN’T!

21. That when guys say they’ll call, they’d better!

22. That tardiness doesn’t exactly make a good impression on girls.

23. That it’s impossible for girls to go to the ladies’ room alone; they have to go in little groups. (Now, don’t ask why…they just have to.)

24. That smoking is tolerable, but continuous smoke being blown in your face isn’t.

25. That guys dig their own graves when they make insensitive remarks about girls.

26. That when guys act like complete ‘assholes’, girls almost always end up forgiving them (it’s what you call ‘compassion’) But forgiveness isn’t easy you know, you have to go through that “down on bended knees” things.

27. That when girls text u sweet mushy quotes, they actually MEAN it.

28. That maybe it’s about time guys write something about the things they wish gals knew.

A FEW TIPS:

1. It doesn’t matter how expensive a present you get her, if she loves you, anything you give will be precious.

2. Women only go astray when they aren’t getting enough of what they need from the fella back home, on the other hand, men will go astray anyway…
