My common sense is out the door,
can't seem to find the lock
‘Tang-!#$%^@*@%^#&, three years na ako sa PNG!

July 2003- July 2006

Half-life, tears, laughter, good friends, strange friends, lovers, trust, hypocrisies, sex, lies, seduction, wine, more wine, courage, defeat and love?


S.O.S. (Rescue Me)

I'm obsessive when just one thought of you comes up
I'm aggressive just one thought of closing up
You got me stressing, incessantly pressing the issue
'Cause every moment gone you know I miss you
I'm the question and you're of course the answer
Just hold me close boy 'cause I'm your tiny dancer
You make me shaken up, never mistaken
But I can't control myself, got me calling out for help

S.O.S. please someone help me.
It's not healthy... for me to feel this way
Y.O.U. are making this hard,
I can't take it, see it don't feel right
S.O.S. please someone help me
It's not healthy... for me to feel this way
Y.O.U. are making this hard
You got me tossin' and turnin' and can't sleep at night

This time please someone come and rescue me
'Cause you on my mind it's got me losing it
I'm lost, you got me lookin' for the rest of me
Love is testing me but still I'm losing it
This time please someone come and rescue me
'Cause you on my mind, it's got me losing it
I'm lost, you got me looking for the rest of me,
Got the best of me, so now
I'm losing it

Just your presence and I second guess my sanity
Yes it's a lesson, it's unfair, you stole my vanity
My tummy's up in knots so when I see you I get so hot
My common sense is out the door, can't seem to find the lock
Take on me (uh huh) you know inside you feel it right
Take me on, I could just die up in your arms tonight.
I'm out with you, you got me head over heels
Boy you keep me hanging on the way you make me feel

Boy, you know you got me feeling open
And boy, your loves enough with words unspoken
I said boy I'm telling you, you got me open
I don't know what to do it's true
I'm going crazy over you,
I'm begging

Snivel, Whimper, Wail, Bawl

Two-time comedian of the year, I was back in high school. My blog miserably failed to measure up to expectations.

My Caucasian friends are too nice to confess that they don’t find me funny. It’s rocket science to pull off a punch line in your fourth tongue (Ilocano being my first; Tagalog, third).

But hell yeah, I am so sure I have humor

It’s right to weep over the pages of Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s or over a Darfur or East Timor documentary. Tact even to spare pairs of sobs and tears with Julianne Moore on “The Hours”. But where should I place my crying over “Maalaala Mo Kaya?” (“Will you fuckin’ remember?”).

Maybe I was crying for no reason. That’s not impossible. The sad plight of a loving brother who whored-up his twink-y fairy self and joined a squad of gay prostitutes to support his brother in rehab is a plot apt enough to cry along to. But I cried long after the show. I was crying still while watching the re-run of “The Glass House”, which an obvious irony as it is, I was chuckling about few days back.

I write about this thing hoping answers take shape as I draw thoughts of sense or (as always) otherwise in this entry. True enough, as you read along and I write about, this babble jabber points the answer somewhere on the other side of the universe.

I’m writing on this no further. I’m not crying (anymore) either.

my malaysian-chinese friend eric thought as his first impression of me that i butter my bread along the runways of manila’s fashion thoroughfare. actually that’s close enough: i’m an accountant slash graduate student on a.w.o.l. of unprecedented sense of style with a humble persona to match.

love has nothing to do with marriage; and so is eric’s assessment of me with this post. i’m just bidding to pull-in everyone with sheer wit and charm to this copy-pasted entry.
