I'm a couch potato...

“Finally!” yan ang sinigaw ko nang magkatuluyan na sila Rachel and Ross…well…for five minutes lang actually…then “nag break” uli sila…HAAYYYYY…nkk frustrate silang dalawa…nd k n ikukuwento ang love story nila…basta…last night’s episode…for those interested there’s a repeat mamya..7:30 pm..after Ross found out that Rachel..(who he had been in love with for 10 years)…has ‘feelings’ for him…biglang NAGULO ang mundo nya…kasi nagkaroon sya ng gf(Julie)...mga 5 episodes plang ang nkkraan…so syempre tinulungan si Ross nla JOEY ang CHANDLER!!!…gumawa sila ng listahan ng kapintasan nung dalawa…kay Rachel: a little bit into herself, a little spoiled, a little ditzy, just a waitress, *ito dagdag lang ni Joey√†has chubby ankles..haha..ito yung sweet!!!..kay Julie: “Not Rachel…”…awww…so yun n nakipag break sya kay Julie…binalita nya kna Chandler and Joey, tas pumasok s Rachel…nalaman nya…yakapan (dito ako napasigaw ng “FINALLY”)…tas basta…5 minutes lang silang ‘together’…tas nakita ba naman ni Rachel yung listahan…NAGALIT SYA…so yun split n nman…

Last night din I watched Playing It Straight…reality TV…one girl then 15 ‘males’..?..the catch is, from the title, hindi lahat ay tunay na lalaki…mayroong mga bakla!…pag ang napili ng girl ay ‘tunay’ they’ll split a million $…pero pag gay…she’ll lose the million and the chance at love…nakakaaliw kasi everyone there claims that they’re straight…tas pag n eliminate cla…tatanungin cla “are you straight or are you gay?”…syempre amin nman…tas ntutuwa ako pag yung mga guess ko kung cnong gay eh tama…yung mga hindi mo p tlga akalain…so kagabi tatlo n lng ang natira…and I found out n andun pa yung CRUSH ko…c BANKS…software consultant…mabait, then n f feel ko n sincere ang intentions nya para kay Jackie and honest…unfortunately jackie had already set her eyes on SHARIF…hindi mo nman masisisi kasi gwapo tlga…pero umpisa p lng he already confessed n hindi sya ma iinlove kay jackie…pera lng tlga…pero hindi ito alam ni jackie…tas c Sharif lalaking lalaki ang dating…out of all of the guys there walang kumwestiyon sa pagklalaki nya…pero damang dama ko BAKLA yon!…

Tas kagabi rin Finale n ng For Love or Money 4…pinili nung couple ang LOVE…ows maniwala ako s inyo!…yung babae kasi…umpisa p lng puro Money n ang lumalabas sa bibig nya…parang pokpok p kung lumingkis sa 8 lalaking nandon…eewww…guaranteed n s girl yung million $ kung pipiliin sya ng lalaki over money…tas yun nga pinili nga nung guy yung LOVE…tas nung sya n alam n alam mo n n MONEY tas biglang nilukot nung girl yung million $ cheque…NAPAKA PEKE!…if I know pakana n ng producers yon!ibibigay rin non l8ter sa babae…kainis…

So after 2 months of hibernation (sembreak…bwahahaha…)…I’ve become a couch potato…more like a ‘bed’ potato…yuck!…but it had been fun and I learned a lot of things…

Sa uulitin…ciao…

I'll Be There For You
The Rembrandts

So no one told you life was gonna be this way
Your job's a joke, you're broke, your love life's DOA
It's like you're always stuck in second gear
When it hasn't been your day, your week, your month, or even your year, but...

I'll be there for you
(When the rain starts to pour)
I'll be there for you
(Like I've been there before)
I'll be there for you
('Cause you're there for me too)

You're still in bed at ten, though work began at eight
You've burned your breakfast, so far things are going great
Your mother warned you there'd be days like these
But she didn't tell you when the world was brought down to your knees that...

I'll be there for you
(When the rain starts to pour)
I'll be there for you
(Like I've been there before)
I'll be there for you
('Cause you're there for me too)

No one could ever know me, no one could ever see me
Seems your the only one who knows, what it's like to be me
Someone to face the day with, make it through all the mess with
Someone I'll always laugh with, even at my worst I'm best with you - yeah

It's like you're always stuck in second gear
When it hasn't been your day, your week, your month, or even your year...

I'll be there for you
(When the rain starts to pour)
I'll be there for you
(Like I've been there before)
I'll be there for you
('Cause you're there for me too)

I'll Be There For You

...on answers

tagal na rin...huling entry k pla ay noong ika-lima ng setyembre pa...

what's new in my life...

well...first major news would probably be: ::drum rolls:: I AM FINALLY LEAVING YuPiElBi and I AM GOING TO TRANSFER TO MAPUA...

after a year and a sem at yupielbi i have finally put an end to it...

many would ask me this: WHY?...and i always find myself on the defensive...kasi nga nman...as some would say..."bakit ka pa lilipat e yupi na yon"...another..."lilipat ka pa doon sa mahal ang tuition"...then...”dpat noong umpisa pa lang..."...and the list goes on...

I know it would be unfair if I go trashing that they don’t have the right to question my decision…well I probably would 2 years ago…::sidetracked::…anyways

So WHY nga ba?..here are the reasons:

1) I wasn’t happy in my course…as simple as that…well when you really think about that HAPPINESS factor it won’t be that simple…there is much more beyond that simple word…I believe that I will not be productive when I become a Communication Arts graduate…I will not be able to fully realize and utilize my potential if I end up becoming a Communication Arts professional...I will be more helpful to our society if I follow my heart…
2) I know for a fact that to become succesful in that course you really have to excel in the communication skills, both in writing and in speech…I do well…but it won’t be enough…so this is kind of like a “career move”
3) I will not be able to survive life in yupi if I stayed another sem…proof of that is my experience in my last sem’s enrollment..oooh…just thinking of that…ahh!…I’m not exaggerating but it really is a traumatic experience…you see…originally I was only given 9 units…just imagine what I felt when I looked down on my form 5 and saw that I only have 3 subjects registered…what’s more is…picture this…almost ¾ of the student population has a case like mine…so it means there are many of us who have to prerog for subjects to complete 18 units…to prerog is to look up subjects you want to take up and then go to the professors who teach that subject and have him or her take you in his or her class…sounds easy ne?…but to be able to do this you have to take down the schedules of your choice of subj. and your choice of time and then go to the venue of that subj. to have the professor teaching that sign in your form 26…that’s the rule…you cannot personally see them in their cubicle or office it has to be on the schedule of your chosen time of class of that subj…another problem is the maximum no. of students per class is 37…there are subjects we can call “in demand”…you have so many competition for a subj. you really have to take…another thing is some teachers make it hard for the “preroggers”…they make us sing or dance in front of a class just to get a slot in that class…I even experienced “draw lots”…I wasn’t lucky..hehehe…it actually took me a week to finish my registration…inhumane!…so you understand now what I feel just thinking of going through that again next sem…of course hindi nman ganito lang kababaw…but this event had been the “last straw”…
but despite all these, I do not have any regrets…maraming pinabaon sa akin ang yupi…for that I really am grateful…being a part of that institution added a lot to my self confidence…”you are the ‘cream of the crop’ and the ‘2% of the whole population of the students who graduated from your batch’” as they say, has not gone down the drain…it’s a big thing for me…because I have little self confidence…

Well…I am struggling here to find the right words to express the whole story…because I am afraid that you’ll judge me…na tanga ako…na hindi ko lang siguro kinaya ang skul ko dati kayo ako nag transfer…na nagsayang lang ako ng oras…na tinapon ko lang ang lahat ng ganon ganon lang…puro sayang, sayang, sayang…

I may have prepared answers to justify my action…It may have taken me a page and a half to come up with this entry to answer questions…pero alam mo kapag ubos na ang mga kasagutan sa mga tanong mo at sa mga tanong ko meron pa akong isang nakatago: you just have to know when to give up.

…and that sums it up.

HAPPY 2!

Remember the entry about the UNO I got in the Chapter 1 I did…actually that entry is just below this one..hehe..well…and then I also mentioned there bout the Chapter 2 we were to do…well..well..well..I got an UNO again!…surprisingly…wasn’t really expecting it…
We were to choose one from the ten novels in the novel by Italo Calvino If on a winter’s night a traveler…???…you see…If on a winter’s night a traveler is a story of a reader (has no given name just called the “READER” but the rest of the characters are named) in search of the ten novels he never got to finish or never got to read up to the 2nd chapter
it started when he picked up a copy of the novel If on a winter’s night a traveler…later when he read it he found out that after the first chapter he won’t be able to read further because several signatures got duplicated…its like an experience of de ja vu…you are past reading page 17 and now in page 32 and then turning to the next page you discover you’re back again to page 17…dumoble…its like that…the reader sought the origin of the 1st chapter he read…learning instead that what he read was actually not If on a winters night a traveler…there was a mix up of the pages from that novel with another novel…so instead of replacing his copy with the real If on a winter’s night he opt to have it replaced with the novel he had started to read…discovering later that it is completely different from the one he has started reading…but still he read it and got hooked and once again…malas siguro talaga sya…found out that the rest of the chapters are composed of blank pages…reader went to the source of all these..the publisher..this went on…encountering different problems like plagiarism, with the real author, etc…leading him to the reading of 10 chapter ones from 10 different novels…he got mixed up in the confusion until he cannot tell anymore which chapter one came from what novel and if those novels did exist or those chapters beyond the chapter ones he has read…the ending was he ends up reading the first novel he intended to read before all of these happened…If on a winter’s night a travel…ironic ne?
The interesting thing about this is that it is written in the 2nd person and the 10 novels are written in the 1st person narration…the 10 novels are also included there, well of course only the chapter ones…so it is like you are side by side journeying with the “reader”, step by step actually experiencing what the “READER” is going through…you actually get to read the chapter ones and also feel the disappointment and yun feeling n nabibitin just like what the “READER” in the novel feels as you read him…
After we finished this novel, someone from our class asked our teacher if those “novels” from the novel we just read exists…medyo magulo noh…it’s because the novel If on a winter’s night a traveler is not a conventional novel or written in the traditional way…it is a metafiction, a fiction of fiction reading the experience of reading…or another comparison is…it’s like watching the tv and in the screen you see someone also watching the tv…
Bottom line is I chose one novel from those 10 novels and did a continuation, a chapter 2…and I got an UNO…sinuswerte lng tlaga ako siguro or…hehehe…it’s really a good feeling, having your work appreciated…especially when the pressure is really tough…from the teachers who accepts nothing but excellence and from your co- students who makes you feel like you don’t deserve to be there…it uplifts the self-esteem…nobela na toh! Kaya OLC kaya natin toh!

HAPPY!

WAHAHAHA!

I did this paper in ENG4 ... and guess what?!

WAHAHAHA!

I got an UNO!

WAHAHAHA!

We were to create our own version of the 1st chapter of the novel If on a winter's night a traveler...


(excerpt from chapter one):
You are about to begin reading Italo Calvino's new novel, If on a winter's night a traveler. Relax. Concentrate. Dispel every other thought. Let the world around you fade. Best to close the door; the TV is always on in the next room. Tell the others right away, "No, I don't want to watch TV!" Raise your voice--they won't hear you otherwise--"I'm reading! I don't want to be disturbed!" Maybe they haven't heard you, with all that racket; speak louder, yell; "I'm beginning to read Italo Calvino's new novel!" Or if you prefer, don't say anything; just hope they'll leave you alone.

Chapter one is about how the Reader got his copy of the novel...so the thing we have to do is retell our own experience on how we got our own copy of the novel...sounds easy right?...but the thing is the chapter one is told in the second person narration...YOU...nywayz...

I really was shocked! when our prof returned our papers ... when I got hold of it ...uhh... can't believe my luck! ... maybe there really is a supreme being up there ... i haven't expected it ...

I would have forever questioned the sanity of my prof, for her to give me such a grade, had it not been for the comments she placed there in my paper ...
to cite some:
1st paragraph : "great beginning"
"This is so witty. First time I've read this."
"The only 'blight' to your Chapter One" *nagkamali lang ako sa tense ng word na bind, should be bound instead i typed bounded
ito ang nakakawindang: "The elegance of your writing 'matches' the elegance of the Times New Roman font. Third progression, full of clarity and the emotion (of your desperation for your copy) is fleshed-out. Good work!"

But then for a moment when I peeked at the paper of a classmate and saw that she also got an uno my happiness kind of went a notch down...coz i thought she gave us all a grade of 1 since it was about our own experiences...but when class was over and i had a chat with some comarts students taking ENG4 too under the same prof I have...i learned that most of them got a grade around 1.75-2.5...talk about ego trip!

I just can't seem to stop bragging about it ... coz you see ... last semester wasn't really "my sem" ... the highest i got in the paperworks was 2.25 ... but this sem ...ha... talk about a major resolution ... actually when i think of it now ... this sem the lowest grade i got is 1.25 for the paper i did on the comparison between reading and sex...all the rest are UNO!...

I am so grateful to that prof...Ms Amy Colanta...she will never know how she helped me gain my confidence back and made me believe in myself...she made me say "may ibubuga pala ako..."... she created a mark in my life ... like a primordial source of confidence ... where i can always go back to and have that self esteem, i always seem to lose, recharged... that whenever i feel like im on the end list of the "mga walang ibubugang estudyante" i can always go back to that episode in my life where someone appreciated my work enough to credit it with an uno...

...heavy drama na to...

I am ... HAPPY!... hope this continues...i guess when you really put your mind to it...everything is possible...add some passion and a piece of yourself to what you are doing...and voila...

sana tuloy tuloy na to...

so till next time...i gotta finish nman the Chapter 2...yes...tuwang tuwa ata yun prof kya nagpagawa nman ngayon ng Chapter 2...cge na bye...GOOD LUCK TO ALL!
HAPPY! *meron ba non?* HAPPY!

Season Finale of Gilmore Girls

4.22 - Raincoats and Recipes
written by: Amy Sherman-Palladino
directed by: Amy Sherman-Palladino
transcript by Patti Jo with assistance by Canopus

CUT TO LORELAI AND RORY'S HOUSE - BACK KITCHEN DOOR
[Rory opens back door]
DEAN: Hey.
RORY: How'd you know I was here?
DEAN: Your mom said she sent you on an errand.
RORY: Ah, you went right to the source.
DEAN: [ Chuckles ] Can I -
RORY: Sure.
DEAN: Thanks.
RORY: I'm just trying to find some CDs for the Dragonfly.
DEAN: I hear Taylor's a big hip-hop fan.
RORY: Oh, he hops with the hippest of them.

CUT TO RORY'S ROOM
DEAN: Your room looks the same.
RORY: Yeah, I tried that whole French revival thing, but it didn't really work for me.
DEAN: So, um, is it weird being back at home after being away for a while?
RORY: No, it feels completely normal.
DEAN: So, um [Chuckles] Today...
RORY: Yes, today.
DEAN: An interesting day.
RORY: I'd authorize a case study if I could.
DEAN: You know, I could be wrong, but somehow I had a feeling that maybe if Tom hadn't have come in when he did -
RORY: Dean?
DEAN: Yeah?
RORY: Lindsay.
DEAN: It's not working with Lindsay. I can't make it work. I've tried.
RORY: Are you sure? Because I've heard that the first two years of marriage are the hardest.
DEAN: We're not happy. She's not happy, and I can't make her happy.
RORY: I can't imagine that.
DEAN: It was a mistake, and I know that now. From the very beginning, it wasn't -
RORY: Wasn't what?
DEAN: It wasn't...
RORY: Maybe you could, um, go see a counselor or go away together.
DEAN: No, it's just -- it's over. We both feel it. I know we both feel it.
RORY: You and Lindsay?
DEAN: Yeah, me and Lindsay.
RORY: You both feel it's over?
DEAN: I tried. We tried.
RORY: Well, if it's over, I'm sorry.
DEAN: You are?
RORY: I'm sorry you're not happy.
DEAN: I'll be happy again. Things happen for a reason, right? [moves closer]
RORY: Right. I can't believe this is -- that we're... [moving closer]
DEAN: I can… [They kiss. Dean slowly lowers Rory to her bed.]

CUT TO LORELAI AND RORY'S HOUSE
[Lorelai enters front door running up the stairs]
LORELAI: Rory! Oh, my God. You're missing everything. [runs up the stairs] Grab those CDs and head back to the inn before you miss the cross-dressing midgets. That's where the night is headed. Oh! Things are happening -- big things, wow things. I have so much to tell you. [descends the stairs with box of Band-aids] Let me just open with this little tidbit -- Kirk running naked through the square. Of course, with all my careful planning and preparation, I forgot to bring Band-aids and a camera. I have got to learn that, always, without fail, Kirk equals camera. [sees Rory standing alone in kitchen] Hey, what's going on?
RORY: Dean came over to borrow something. [Dean exits Rory's bedroom to join her in kitchen]
DEAN: Yeah. [ Clears throat ] Thanks.
RORY: You're welcome.
DEAN: So, um, I should go. Um...bye, Lorelai.
RORY: Bye, Dean. [the door closes] So, I'm almost done getting the CDs together. I picked a wide selection so we'd have choices, and then I picked a bunch that probably only you will like, but it's good to have options.
LORELAI: [sighs and looks at Rory's rumpled bed] So, what did he borrow?
RORY: I'm sorry I didn't talk to you about it first. I know I promised I would, but I swear, I didn't know that this was going to happen. I mean, I didn't know he was going to show up tonight, and it just happened. It's awful for you to find out like this, I know, but everything's okay. I'm okay, and we were, you know, safe. So all those Trojan man jokes all these years really apparently stuck. And I'm lucky, too, because Dean, he's -- well, aren't you glad that it happened with someone who's good and really loves me?
LORELAI: But he's married.
RORY: You don't understand the situation.
LORELAI: Is he still married?
RORY: Yes, but -
LORELAI: Then I understand the situation.
RORY: It's not working out between them. They're not happy.
LORELAI: Oh, Rory.
RORY: He tried the best he could, but it didn't work. It's over.
LORELAI: [ Sighs ] He told you that?
RORY: Yes.
LORELAI: He told you he's leaving her?
RORY: Well -
LORELAI: He told you he's moving out, they're getting divorced, he's got a lawyer, they've divided up the monster-truck season tickets?
RORY: We didn't get around to discussing everything.
LORELAI: You didn't get around to discussing everything?
RORY: It was a crazy night.
LORELAI: You, of all people -- the girl who thinks everything through, the list maker -- you didn't bother to discuss those things before jumping into bed with a married guy?
RORY: He's not a married guy. He's Dean -- my Dean.
LORELAI: He's not your Dean. He's Lindsay's Dean. You're the other woman.
RORY: I told you, it's over.
LORELAI: It's not over until he's out of the house with the ring off.
RORY: He took the ring off.
LORELAI: Oh, my God, I don't believe this.
RORY: He's in love with me, not Lindsay.
LORELAI: Does Lindsay know that?
RORY: She's not good for him, okay? She lets him quit school and work himself to death and -
LORELAI: No, Rory, uh-uh, you can't be one of those girls who blames the wife for forcing the husband to cheat.
RORY: He wasn't cheating.
LORELAI: He was cheating, Rory. He was cheating, and you were cheating with him. There's no other way to spin that, kid.
RORY: I'm not spinning it, and I'm not a kid. I'm 19.
LORELAI: This is your first time. It's just not the way your first time was supposed to be.
RORY: Oh, and how was my first time supposed to be?
LORELAI: Well, first of all, it was supposed to be in a retirement home. And secondly, ideally, it was supposed to be with someone single.
RORY: My first time was with someone sweet and kind who loves me.
LORELAI: I didn't raise you to be like this. I didn't raise you to be the kind of girl who sleeps with someone else's husband.
RORY: You slept with dad when he was with Sherry.
LORELAI: He wasn't married to Sherry.
RORY: He was engaged, and she was pregnant.
LORELAI: So, this is all my fault? I set one crappy example for you, and you have no choice but to follow in my footsteps? [Rory turns and walks away.] Rory, what are you going to do now? Huh? Is there a plan?
RORY: I don't want to talk about it anymore.
LORELAI: I just want what's best for you, that's all!
RORY: I don't want to talk about it!
LOREALI: I just don't want you to get hurt, Rory. What if he doesn't leave her? Now you're all emotionally involved.
RORY: You're just mad because I didn't come running to you to discuss whether or not I was ready for this step. I decided it on my own.
LOREALI: Well, obviously, you weren't ready for this step. The very fact that you chose another girl's guy to sleep with proves that!
RORY: He was my boyfriend first!
LOREALI: But you dumped him! You rejected him! You picked someone else!
RORY: Stop it! [walks away]
LORELAI: Rory!
RORY: I hate you for ruining this for me! [Walks out front door and pulls on sweater. Dials a number on her cell phone]
LINDSAY: [answering phone] Hello? Hello? Hello?
[Rory hangs up and sinks to her knees. Lorelai exits the front door and watches her daughter sobbing on the front lawn.]

OPEN AT LORELAI'S HOUSE
[Rory pulls up in her car, grabs some bags from the trunk, then walks into the house. An alarm starts blaring.]
LORELAI: Oh, crap! [tries to turn off the alarm]
RORY: What's going on? Is it the smoke detector? Are we on fire?
LORELAI: It's not the smoke detector, it's the alarm!
RORY: What alarm?
LORELAI: Our alarm.
RORY: We don't have an alarm.
LORELAI: Well, then, we have really angry rats. Did you cut your hair?
RORY: Well, I just trimmed it.
LORELAI: You didn't tell me you were cutting your hair.
RORY: It was a spur-of-the-moment thing.
LORELAI: A spur-of-the-moment, "let's not tell my mother I'm pulling a G.I. Jane"?
RORY: Are we seriously gonna have this conversation now during the air raid?
LORELAI: You're right. Come on. [leads her to the other side of the room]
RORY: What are we doing?
LORELAI: I figured out that there is a motion detector, and if you stand over here, it can't see you and calms down.
RORY: Great, so what now?
LORELAI: We wait. So why didn't you tell me you were getting your hair cut?
RORY: It's just a trim.
LORELAI: To the Braille Institute, it's just a trim.
RORY: Do you like it?
LORELAI: Will you put it back if I don't?
RORY: Mom!
LORELAI: Yes, I like it.
RORY: Thank you.
[the alarm stops]
RORY: Oh, thank God.
LORELAI: Feels good when it's over, huh?
RORY: This is crazy. When did we get an alarm?
LORELAI: Well, apparently, Kirk. . .
RORY: Oh, no.
LORELAI: . . .has recently joined the Stars Hollow Security Company.
RORY: Oh, no.
LORELAI: And apparently, now that I'm the pretty spinster living all alone, he's concerned for my safety.
RORY: Did he tell you all this?
LORELAI: Do you think I labeled myself the pretty spinster?
RORY: What did you say?
LORELAI: I haven't talked to him face-to-face. I come home to this and there was a note and his card and his gun.
RORY: Oh, jeez!
LORELAI: Yeah, and then when I called the alarm-response center to complain about the alarm, no one answered. I had to leave a message with Meg - she sweeps up.
RORY: I can't even believe there's a security company in Stars Hollow. Nothing ever happens here.
LORELAI: Oh, that is not true. Plenty happens here.
RORY: Like what?
LORELAI: Like, people now break into your houses and install alarm systems.
RORY: I heard about that.
LORELAI: And we have a new mail carrier.
RORY: We do?
LORELAI: Yeah, so now if you wanna get your mail, you just have to go see Miss Patty.
RORY: Why?
LORELAI: 'Cause that's where he brings it. He brings Babette's mail to Andrew's, Norma's mail to the deli, and Taylor still hasn't found his mail, which I have to admit is kind of fun.
RORY: I rescind my previous statement. This place is hopping.
LORELAI: So, did you eat yet?
RORY: Nope. I thought I'd let you feed me.
LORELAI: Sure. I can feed you, but I can't know if you're getting your hair cut.
RORY: I will never do anything again without telling you - happy?
LORELAI: I don't know. I'm finding this whole guilt thing rather satisfying. [Rory starts to walk away] No, no, where are you going? [The alarm starts blaring again] Agh! Why did you do that?
RORY: I was gonna get my laundry!
LORELAI: You made it mad!
RORY: I didn't mean to!
LORELAI: Back in the corner, back in the corner!
RORY: Oh.
LORELAI: No place like home, huh?
RORY: Yeah.
[opening credits]

CUT TO LORELAI'S HOUSE
[Lorelai is making a trail of Post-It notes on the floor through the house; Rory comes out of her bedroom]
RORY: Mom?
LORELAI: Follow the Post-It's.
RORY: Does our life seem at all ridiculous to you?
LORELAI: I spent all morning carefully tracking that motion detector.
RORY: What an excellent use of your time.
LORELAI: We're good as long as we stay on the path.
RORY: So I should follow the yellow stick road?
LORELAI: We'll be here all week, try the veal. Stop.
RORY: What?
LORELAI: Read.
RORY: "Crouch down and hop." Oh, come on.
LORELAI: The motion-detector beam at the top of the staircase dips very low over there.
RORY: You seriously want me to crouch down and hop?
LORELAI: Like a little hunchbacked bunny.
RORY: You know, I had decided that if I ever went to therapy, I was gonna leave you out of it, but now. . .
LORELAI: Okay, you can stand up.
RORY: Did you at least call the stupid security company again?
LORELAI: Yes, Meg sends her love. Don't worry - I'll stop by on my way to the inn. And what are your plans today, Persis Khambata?
RORY: Well, today, I'm going to do nothing but hang out in town, read, veg, drink coffee, and have the perfect Stars Hollow day.
LORELAI: Look out. I get to go over to the inn and hear a contractor laugh at me every time I say, "But that won't cost too much more, right?"
RORY: Enjoy.
LORELAI: Late lunch at Luke's?
RORY: You're on. So, uh, which way do I go?
LORELAI: Oh, just follow the Post-It's.
RORY: But they're going in two different directions.
LORELAI: They are?
RORY: Look.
LORELAI: Oh. I must have kicked some out of the way by accident.
RORY: Well, which one do I take?
LORELAI: Which looks more intentional?
RORY: No Post-It path looks intentional.
LORELAI: I'm drawing a complete blank.
RORY: You seriously don't remember?
LORELAI: Sorry.
RORY: Well, how are we supposed to get out of our house?
[Lorelai, imitating Jeannie from I Dream of Jeannie, crosses her arms, nods her head, and blinks]
LORELAI: Unng!
RORY: I hate Kirk.

CUT TO THE GAZEBO
[Rory is sitting on the bench reading and listening to music. A man walks up and sets down a box]
RORY: Whoa. What's going on?
MAN: I'm just setting things up for tomorrow.
RORY: Oh, tomorrow. What's -
MAN 2: Heads up!
[another man throws a package of tablecloths to the man in the gazebo]
RORY: Whoa.
MAN: I think you may need to move.
RORY: Yeah, I kinda got that. Excuse me. What's tomorrow?
[Across the lawn, Lindsay and her mom are talking with a wedding planner]
LINDSAY: . . .tons of tulle so that everything looks like frosting.
MRS. LISTER: She's our only daughter - frost the town.
LINDSAY: Now, where should we put the poster? I want to make sure everybody sees it.
MRS. LISTER: Oh, what about next to the cake?
LINDSAY: Yes, next to the cake.
[Rory walks away in the other direction]

CUT TO KIM'S ANTIQUES
[Rory walks in]
RORY: Lane.
LANE: Rory.
RORY: Have you heard of a phone? Because as my friend, it is your responsibility to use it to call me and tell me that my ex-boyfriend's wedding is on Sunday so I'm not accidentally in it.
LANE: What?
RORY: I'm sitting out in the gazebo, reading, and this guy almost brains me with a stack of tablecloths.
LANE: Oh, that's right, they're having their reception in the town square.
RORY: Yes, and Lindsay was out there holding a giant picture of her with Dean, and. . .
LANE: Oh my God, did she see you?
RORY: I don't think so. I do a pretty good idiot run when I need to.
LANE: I'm sorry, I meant to tell you. I just didn't know you were coming home this weekend. It totally slipped my mind. Things have been so crazy. I just figured I'd tell you when we talked, and then we didn't, and. . .oh, I'm sorry, can you hold on for a sec?
[She opens an armoire. Zach and Brian are inside]
ZACH: Not cool, Lane.
LANE: I'm sorry, guys.
BRIAN: Fourth time today.
LANE: Well, I thought Rory was my mom.
ZACH: The resemblance is uncanny.
BRIAN: We should get your mom a bell like a cat.
RORY: What's going on?
LANE: We're having a band meeting. We need to figure out what to do about a guitarist.
BRIAN: I think I got a splinter.
ZACH: You know that a splinter can get into your bloodstream, go straight to your heart, and kill you.
BRIAN: Why would you tell me that?
ZACH: Whatever, dude. This is lame. I'm gonna bail.
LANE: Zach, come on.
BRIAN: We need to find a guitarist.
LANE: That's right. We have come too far to let the band fall apart just because Dave -
ZACH: Hey, do not say the "d" word, Lane.
LANE: But -
ZACH: Don't.
LANE: Dave -
ZACH: Dave is dead to me. Comprendo? Dead. Cover the mirror, rip a shirt, that guy doesn't exist.
BRIAN: He just went to college, Zach.
ZACH: No, he did not just go to college. He walked out on his art, man. He walked out on his sound. Do you think a sound is so easy to find? Did you ever see that Glenn Miller movie? For two hours, Jimmy Stewart's walking around, "I gotta find a sound. I gotta find a sound." Well, we had a sound and Dave took that sound to freaking California. You don't come back from California, man. It changes you.
LANE: What did you expect him to do - not go to college?
ZACH: No true rock 'n' roller goes to college!
RORY: Mick Jagger went to the London School of Economics.
ZACH: What?
RORY: Yeah, and, uh, Dexter Holland of The Offspring got his PhD in molecular biology at USC. Greg Ginn of Black Flag graduated from UCLA. The guy from Bad Religion got his masters in geology from UCLA, and he's working on his PhD in evolutionary biology at Cornell.
ZACH: Lane, she's your friend.
RORY: I'm sorry. Um, I'm going. I'll call you later.
LANE: Hey, are you mad?
RORY: No, I'm not, I promise. I'm just - I'm just a little surprised. I mean, Dean's wedding. . .
LANE: I know.
RORY: But it's okay. It just means that I have to be a little more careful about where I go this weekend, that's all.
LANE: Okay, well, I'll see you tomorrow. We're using the garage - guitar auditions.
RORY: Okay, I'll see you tomorrow.
ZACH: Shut up, shut up, shut up. Weezer did not go to Harvard.
BRIAN: Not the whole band, just the lead -
ZACH: Get away from me! I mean it.
RORY: Bye.
LANE: Bye.
[Rory leaves. She sees Dean out front on the sidewalk]
RORY: Hi.
DEAN: Hi. Uh, were you. . .
RORY: Oh, I was at, uh, Lane's.
DEAN: Right, Lane's. Um.
RORY: Um.
DEAN: So, you're home this weekend.
RORY: Yeah, I, uh, I ran out of clean clothes and quarters, so. . .how are things?
DEAN: Good. You?
RORY: Good.
DEAN: You like Yale?
RORY: I love Yale.
DEAN: I figured.
RORY: And Connecticut State?
DEAN: It's. . .it's good.
RORY: Oh, good. I'm glad it's good. I mean, not that I would have had any recourse if it wasn't, but, uh, this makes my lack of recourse a lot easier to deal with. So, I see you've taken over the town.
DEAN: Oh, yeah. Uh, well, Lindsay thought. . .she likes the gazebo, and. . .
RORY: And it's her wedding.
DEAN: It is her wedding.
RORY: And your wedding. I mean, it's your wedding, too.
DEAN: Yes, it is. It's my wedding, too.
RORY: Well, it's nice. It's, um, it's pretty. It looks like heaven or a Victoria's Secret commercial, which, to some people is basically the same thing.
DEAN: I didn't know you'd be home this weekend.
RORY: It was just a spur-of-the-moment thing.
DEAN: Because if I had known, I would have, you know, invited you.
RORY: Oh. Oh, well, it's. . .
DEAN: I mean, I didn't want you to think I was just not inviting you.
RORY: No, I didn't think that.
DEAN: I just figured you'd be at school.
RORY: 'Cause you're logical.
DEAN: I just didn't know.
RORY: No, I know you didn't know.
DEAN: I didn't want you to think -
RORY: No, I didn't think. I don't think. I go to Yale now. They think for you.
DEAN: But, hey, since you are here, come.
RORY: Come?
DEAN: To my wedding. Come to my wedding.
RORY: Oh, Dean. . .
DEAN: You and Lorelai, I want you to.
RORY: Well. . .
DEAN: Chicken or beef?
RORY: What?
DEAN: Wait, beef. Of course, beef. I mean, the two of you are definitely beef. I mean, not like you resemble beef or anything.
RORY: You know, you don't even have to -
DEAN: Okay, so, noon at the church. I'll be the one in the tux. And don't worry, we didn't write our own vows and no one's singing opera. I know you think that's lame.
RORY: Oh, no, well, it's a wedding. It's supposed to be. . .operatic.
DEAN: Okay, so, I better get over there. Lindsay's expecting me. Uh, so, I'll just see you two tomorrow.
RORY: But. . .

CUT TO LUKE'S DINER
[Lorelai and Rory are sitting at a table]
LORELAI: So, he invited us to his wedding.
RORY: And we're having beef.
LORELAI: Well, what was his body language like?
RORY: Tall.
LORELAI: No, I mean, did he squirm or back away when he invited you or was he all darty-eyed?
RORY: Not much squirming, no backing away, but there was a little bit of darty-eye.
LORELAI: So, he was nervous.
RORY: Well, we were both nervous. I mean, we didn't expect to run into each other, and I think he probably just invited us 'cause he felt like he had to, to be nice.
LORELAI: That does sound like Dean.
RORY: So, what do we do? Do we go?
LORELAI: Oh, I can't decide this. He's your ex-boyfriend.
RORY: It seems weird that we go.
LORELAI: Then we don't go.
RORY: But if we don't go, it may look like we're trying to make some kind of statement.
LORELAI: Then we go.
RORY: If I had just stayed at Lane's for two more minutes. . .
LORELAI: Yeah, fate.
RORY: Yes, it is fate. Do we ignore fate?
LORELAI: I don't know. Do you have any important papers due soon?
RORY: Why?
LORELAI: Just in case.
RORY: Fate's gonna flunk me?
LORELAI: It's always a possibility.
RORY: Well, then that's it. We are going.
LUKE: Going where?
RORY: Dean's wedding. Fate's making us.
LORELAI: I hope fate will cough up forty bucks for a salad spinner for him.
LUKE: Please, there is no fate.
LORELAI: What do you mean there is no fate? Of course there is fate.
LUKE: There is no fate, there is no destiny, there is no luck. Astrology is ridiculous. Tarot cards tell you nothing. You cannot read a palm. Tea leaves make tea and nothing else. Jim Morrison is not hanging out with Elvis, and the Kennedys did not kill Marilyn.
LORELAI: I totally knew you were gonna say that.
LUKE: I came over here. My fault.
LORELAI: I read your mind. It spoke to me. We're psychic.
LUKE: Enjoy the fries.
LORELAI: So where does this leave us?
RORY: Well, I think that Dean's gonna expect us to go, and it is his day, and I don't want him to feel like I don't care about him.
LORELAI: I know.
RORY: I just want him to be happy.
LORELAI: Okay, we'll get him a salad spinner first thing tomorrow morning.
RORY: Thank you.
[Miss Patty walks in]
MISS PATTY: Oh, there you are. Honey, I've got your mail.
LORELAI: Oh, great.
MISS PATTY: Oh, I'm exhausted. I've been looking all over town for you.
LORELAI: Oh, Patty, you could have just left me a message. I would have stopped by and picked it up.
MISS PATTY: Oh, there was something marked urgent in there, and I just wanted to make sure you got it.
LORELAI: Hm, thank you.
MISS PATTY: All right, I'm leaving. Oh, I'm gonna kill that mail carrier. I don't care if he doesn't have a tongue. [leaves]
RORY: Our new mail carrier doesn't have a tongue?
LORELAI: You've got to be kidding me.
RORY: That's what Patty just said.
LORELAI: No, Taylor has sent me a cease and desist order on the inn.
RORY: What?
LORELAI: [reads letter] "Dear Lorelai Gilmore, it has come to the attention of the Stars Hollow Historical Preservation Society that you and Miss Sookie St. James intend to commence construction on the Dragonfly Inn. Any proposed renovations must be submitted, discussed, and approved by the Stars Hollow Historical Preservation Society. We must therefore ask that all work halt until such time that this procedure has been followed. Thank you, and have a historical day." Is he kidding?
RORY: What are you gonna do?
LORELAI: I'm going to talk to him.
RORY: Cool.
LORELAI: Don't say cool like that. It's gonna be very pleasant.
RORY: I thought you said you were gonna go talk to Taylor.
LORELAI: I own my own business now, Rory. I'm gonna have to deal with tiny men like Taylor all the time. You can't go around yelling at people, no matter how historical they might be.
RORY: Bummer.
LORELAI: You have to learn to separate the personal from the business.
RORY: Okay.
[they walk outside and head toward the soda shop]
LORELAI: Remember in The Godfather, Michael telling Sonny how he was gonna kill Tattaglia and Captain McCluskey in that Italian restaurant? He lays out the whole thing very calmly, very unemotionally, 'cause that's what you do in business.
RORY: Yeah, but then he went and shot two guys in the head.
LORELAI: Okay, but I wasn't describing that scene.

CUT TO LUKE'S DINER
CUSTOMER: Goodnight.
LUKE: Goodnight. Thanks.
[A group of boys are walking toward the diner]
BOYS: [singing] We do or die for Stars Hollow High! We do or die for Stars Hollow High! It's the one we fight and fall for, it's the one we give our all for.
LUKE: Oh, goody.
[the boys enter the diner]
BOYS: Stars Hollow High! Whoo!
BOY 1: That is our Stars Hollow High fight song.
LUKE: Could've sworn it was Mozart. What is this, guys?
KYLE: Pit stop!
BOYS: Whoo!
KYLE: Bachelor party, phase one is over.
BOY 2: Our boy Dean here is tying the knot.
LUKE: Look, I was just closing up.
DEAN: Luke!
LUKE: Dean!
DEAN: That's funny.
LUKE: I wasn't even trying.
KYLE: We just need to refuel for phase two, sir. It won't take long.
DEAN: You wouldn't turn away a man on his wedding day, would you?
LUKE: It's not your wedding day yet.
BOY 1: That's what I keep telling him, dude. It's your last day of freedom.
BOY 2: Hey, we should get strippers, right?
DEAN: And cake.
BOY 3: Hey, my name's Luke, too. We should start a club or something.
LUKE: Yeah, that would be swell. Look, guys, why don't you go sit down over there? I'll make some coffee.
DEAN: Tomorrow is the big day, man - big day.
LUKE: You're tipping there, Dean. Watch him.
KYLE: I got him, sir. We really appreciate this, sir.
LUKE: Stop calling me that.
DEAN: He's a good guy, really.
LUKE: So, what was phase one?
KYLE: A case of beer in the JC Penney parking lot, then batting cages and laser tag.
DEAN: I've decided that I really like beer.
KYLE: I'm the designated driver.
LUKE: Good man.
KYLE: I'm in the Navy now, you know.
LUKE: Uniform tipped me off.
KYLE: My older cousins did two-year stints. It paid for their college and stuff, so I joined up. Of course, we weren't fighting international skirmishes on two or three dangerous fronts like we are now.
LUKE: Hey, what are you doing?
BOY 2: Sugar football.
LUKE: Don't.
KYLE: Come on, guys, respect the establishment. They're still kids.
LUKE: I got a better idea, guys. How about I whip up some pancakes real fast, help soak up whatever it is you drank?
KYLE: Sounds good. We'll be needing energy for phase two.
BOY 2: Strippers, right? We gotta get strippers.
BOY 3: Hey, how much do you give a stripper?
BOY 1: Well, that depends on what she does.
KYLE: Are they really prostitutes? 'Cause I'd feel bad if they were prostitutes.
LUKE: Look, guys, I gotta go in the back for a couple seconds. Don't drink anymore. Don't play jets. Don't jump on the furniture. Just sit still, okay?
BOY 2: And do what?
LUKE: I don't know. Make up a dirty version of the fight song or something.
BOY 1: Yeah!
BOY 2: Great idea!
DEAN: [mumbles] Rory.
BOY 3: What did he say?
BOY 1: Oh, he is so toasted.
DEAN: [mumbles] Rory.
KYLE: Did he say what I think he said?
LUKE: Hey guys, you know what I think? I think it's real late and that maybe you ought to cancel phase two.
BOY 1: No way.
KYLE: Hear him out, fellas.
LUKE: I mean, think about it, guys - how you gonna beat laser tag?
BOY 1: I don't know.
BOY 2: Aw, is Dean sick?
LUKE: He just needs his rest. Kyle, why don't you march your friends out of here? I'll take care of the groom, and he'll see you all tomorrow.
KYLE: He's right, guys. Let's saddle up.
BOY 2: Aren't we getting pancakes?
BOY 1: I'm not feeling good.
LUKE: Come on, big guy.
DEAN: What?
LUKE: Try to walk.
[The boys leave, singing the fight song. Luke takes Dean upstairs to his apartment]
LUKE: Here we are.
DEAN: She's smart, man. You know, she's so smart.
LUKE: I know, I know.
DEAN: She could probably fix the world, you know?
LUKE: Right, right. She could team up with Kyle - her brains, his brawn.
DEAN: No, not Kyle - Rory.
LUKE: Almost there.
DEAN: She's the one, you know?

[Luke walks Dean over to the bed]
LUKE: Come on, Dean, just slide down there, stop talking.
DEAN: And the hair - pretty hair. She has the prettiest hair. And that head. What is that?
LUKE: Just your shoes. Shh.
DEAN: I miss her. Why didn't she love me?

CUT TO THE DRAGONFLY INN
[Luke walks upstairs to the apartment. Dean is sitting on the bed]
LUKE: So, you're up.
DEAN: Yeah, I'm up. It took me a minute or two to figure out where I am, but. . .
LUKE: Oh, that's right. You've never been here before.
DEAN: Yeah, it's not that I remembered. I just kinda looked out the window and that's how I could tell.
LUKE: Good, smart. [hands him a drink] Little concoction of mine - it'll help with the hangover.
DEAN: Guess I had a beer or two too many last night, huh?
LUKE: Yeah, it happens.
DEAN: Hope the guys didn't bug you too much.
LUKE: No, they were fine.
DEAN: Good.
LUKE: So, you're all dressed there?
DEAN: Yeah, uh, you know, big day - getting married.
LUKE: Getting married.
DEAN: Um, I'm due in the church in about an hour.
LUKE: Hey, uh, Dean. . .
DEAN: And I still gotta pick up my tux.
LUKE: Yeah, right.
DEAN: Um, thanks for everything, Luke.
LUKE: Yeah, sure. Good luck.

CUT TO OUTSIDE
[Rory and Lane are walking down the street]
RORY: So, a total strikeout, huh?
LANE: Total. And, you know, at first, I felt bad for them - so lacking in talent, yet so clueless. Then I just felt bad for their guitars.
RORY: Where are all the good young musicians these days?
LANE: My ears wanted to fly off my head. I'm going to the music store to look at things I can't afford. Want to come?
RORY: I have to go get ready for this.
LANE: Right. Tell me how it goes.
RORY: I will.
[Lane walks away. Luke walks out of the market]
RORY: Hey, Luke.
LUKE: Hey, Rory. Um, where's your mom?
RORY: Uh, around somewhere. Why?
LUKE: I thought I'd find her at Doose's. Did she go back to the inn, or. . .
RORY: She was going back to the inn, then she was picking up a wedding present for Dean from us, because she hates it when people send gifts later. And then depending on time, I was either gonna meet her back at home or at the church.
LUKE: She have her cell on her?
RORY: I think it's dead. What's going on?
LUKE: Or a pager or something?
RORY: Is something wrong?
LUKE: Oh, no, I just need to check something with her.
RORY: Well, we can stop by after the wedding.
LUKE: Don't go to the wedding.
RORY: What?
LUKE: Uh, don't go to Dean's wedding.
RORY: Why?
LUKE: I just. . .don't go. Trust me.
RORY: Okay.
LUKE: It'd just be better this way.
RORY: Okay.
LUKE: So, you're not going?
RORY: I guess not.
LUKE: Okay, good. Good. I'll see you guys later.
RORY: Yeah, Luke, I'll see you later.
LUKE: Okay.

CUT TO SIDEWALK
[Lorelai walks out of a store. Kirk walks up to her]
KIRK: Lorelai, do you have a minute?
LORELAI: Oh, sure, Kirk.
KIRK: We've had a successful disconnection.
LORELAI: No more alarm?
KIRK: No more alarm.
LORELAI: Fantastic.
KIRK: The roofer will be out tomorrow. The repair should take about a day.
LORELAI: I'm not gonna inquire about that right now.
KIRK: It's all taken care of, and I want to apologize for any inconvenience.
LORELAI: Aw, it was no big deal.
KIRK: I have this strong sense of chivalry when it comes to women living alone.
LORELAI: That's very nice.
KIRK: My family tree dates back to a 12th-century knight.
LORELAI: Wow.
KIRK: As a kid, I thought that meant we were related to Ted Knight. I wrote him a lot of letters. He never responded.
LORELAI: That's cute, though.
KIRK: I just want you to feel safe.
LORELAI: You really do, don't you, Kirk?
KIRK: So, I hope you don't mind my watching out for you.
LORELAI: Not at all. [she kisses his cheek]
KIRK: Thank you. I'll see you around.
LORELAI: See ya.
[Kirk walks away as Rory walks over]
RORY: Hey.
LORELAI: Ooh, hey. I think I found the perfect wedding present for Dean. It's sweet, not too personal, classy, yet cheap.
RORY: We're not going.
LORELAI: What?
RORY: Luke was looking for you and ran into me, and he was all nervous and everything, and then he finally just said we shouldn't go.
LORELAI: What does that mean?
RORY: I think it means that we shouldn't go.
LORELAI: Did he give a reason?
RORY: Not really.
LORELAI: I'll go talk to him.
RORY: No, Mom, he seemed really serious, and I think that if you saw him you'd feel the same way. He was kind of upset.
LORELAI: About Dean's wedding?
RORY: Yeah.
LORELAI: So, we're not going?
RORY: I think it's better that we don't.
LORELAI: Okay. Mystery, though.
RORY: Kind of.
LORELAI: Well, you've got your nothing-to-do weekend back.
RORY: Yeah, got that back. Um, Mom, Kirk's following us in a little clowny car.
LORELAI: He's watching out for us.
RORY: Okay.

CUT TO THE TOWN SQUARE
[Rory watches from afar as Dean and Lindsay walk out of the church after their wedding ceremony]
THE END

...Striking Line...

DEAN: I miss her. Why didn't she love me?

...What could have happened if Luke finished this satement...

LUKE: Hey, uh, Dean. . .

...What could have happened if...

LUKE: Don't go to the wedding.

LUKE: It'd just be better this way.

Talk about an embarassing

we had this activity in COMA101...we were supposed to express a situation, that will be given by our professor, through the use of our voice...fortunately...because i was kinda getting nervous...he told us that he only has two situations and will only be needing a pair for each...a boy and a girl...the boy will be named john...and the girl will be called...guess...MARSHA! ha...!...instruction: the only thing we will utter during this activity is the name of our partners which is John and Marsha nga for the boys and girls, respectively...parang
girl: John
boy: Marsha
girl:John!
boy:Marsha!
parang ganon...but there should be a variation in the intensity of the pitch...portrayal of the situation through the use of voice only

so yun nga...the first situartion was kinda easy...it was about a couple having a heated argument on something...when the first two who will play the part of John and Marsha was called i felt relieved...so yun nga...they had their exchange of Johns and Marshas...and the rest of us were all laughing hard...because the guy was just so cute when he delivers his Marshas...
until it was finished n nga...

so we went to the next situation...about a couple having one of their "intimate" moments together (making looovvveee)...our prof looked at the seatplan to choose the next people who will do the activity...that time i was talking to my seatmate and we were laughing at the situation given...little did i know...guess this wasn't my lucky day...you guessed right!!!...i was one of the "LUCKY" two called...HAH!...the funny thing is i had this tinge of suspicion in my head that i will be a CHOSEN ONE...and that moment my prof first opened his mouth...i knew it will be me...after nga ntawag ako sbi pa nya..."tatawa tawa k p jan ha..." so yun nga...my partner and me stood in front of the class...my classmates were all laughing...in a good way...me and "him" were laughing also...because the situation is really kinda absurd...and some of my friends there...yun mga ka batch ko...were like "GO JOANN!" p*******a...

so nag start n nga kmi ni partner...it was kinda awkward...like the rest of the class was hanging on our every Johns and Marshas...yuck...nadidiri tlaga ako nun mga oras n yon...as in...what do i know about it...my partner said p nga "sir mga bata p po kmi..."...pero third year n yon...sa loob loob k 'maniwala ako syo!'...para sa anu pa yun pagiging top one ng yupi elbi among the unversities with the highest rate of students practicing premarital sex at nauuwi sa pregnancy...landi!

and so as they say "everything must come to an end"...it did end...hhhhhaaaaaaaa...finally...that's it...i never want to experience that again...

P.S.
don't you think that is injustice...MALAY K B S PAKIKIPAG SEX...!
Kama Sutra!

QUIZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You're a Magical Angel!Out of all the angels, you are
the one most afflicted with magic. You can do
many enchantments as well as sorcery. You cant
do black magic, because even though your not so
"pure" your still an angel. A very
kind and curious one at that. Magical Angels
are always very easy-going with humans, but
intrestingly enough, like to expirement with
them with their spells.

earlier our prof. in jap10 gave us a quiz on hiragana...and you could say i didn't do well...my mind went blank...that's what happens when i'm not prepared...i seem to forget everything...and not to mention the quiz was about japanese characters! a japanese word was given and we're supposed to translate it to hiragana...i think i got 12 out of 20...i just can't seem to accept it...coz i actually did an excellent job in our first long exam...a 94.5 out of 100...hehe...so much for humility...(pero kun c fhrea yun mlamang perfect or 1 mistake lng...hehehe...pish fhrea)...bawi ako nxt time...ha!

i included here some japanese characters, written by my own hand...some of my favorites...

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED movie! PROMISE!

LAWS OF ATTRACTION

High-powered New York divorce attorneys Daniel Rafferty (Pierce Brosnan) and Audrey Woods (Julianne Moore) have seen love gone wrong in all its worst case scenarios - so how bad could their own chances be?

At the top of their respective games, Audrey and Daniel are a classic study in opposites. She practices law strictly by the book; he always manages to win by the seat of his pants. But soon they're pitted against each other on opposite sides of a nasty public divorce between famous clients, with the case centering on an Irish castle that each future divorcee has their sights on. Audrey and Daniel travel to Ireland to chase down depositions, yet the two lawyers, who have slowly been developing a mutual attraction that neither wants to acknowledge, find themselves thrown together at a romantic Irish country festival. After a night of wild celebrating, they wake up the next morning as man and wife. Now they have to return to New York to carry on with both their surprising new situation and the ongoing court case.

Maybe getting married first is the best way to fall in love?

When In A Bookstore...

In the shop window you have promptly identified the cover with the title you were looking for. Following this visual trail, you have forced your way through the shop past the thick barricade of BOOKS, which were frowning at you from the tables and shelves, trying to cow you. But you know you must never allow yourself to be awed, that among them there extend for acres and acres the:

1. Books You Haven't Read
2. Books You Needn't Read
3. Books Made For Purposes Other Than Reading
4. Books Read Even Before You Open Them Since They Belong To
The Category Of Books Read Before Being Written

5. Books That If You Had More Than One Life You Would Certainly
Also Read But Unfortunately Your Days Are Numbered

6. Books You Mean To Read But There Are Others You Must Read First
7. Books Too Expensive Now And You'll Wait Till They're Remaindered
8. Books Too Expensive Now And You'll Wait When They Come Out
In Paperback
9. Books You Can Borrow From Somebody
10. Books That Everybody's Read So It's As If You Had Read Them
Too
11. Books You've Been Planning To Read For Ages
12. Books You've Been Hunting For Years Without Success
13. Books Dealing With Something You're Working On At The Moment
14. Books You Want To Own So They'll Be Handy Just In Case
15. Books You Could Put Aside Maybe To Read This Summer
16. Books You Need To Go With Other Books ON Your Shelves
17. Books That Fill You With Sudden, Inexplicable Curiosity, Not
Easily Justified
18. Books Read Too Long Ago Which It's Now Time To Reread
19. Books You've Always Pretended To Have Read And Now It's Time
To Sit Down And Really Read Them

-If on a winter's night a traveler
Italo Calvino

i've come across these categories of books in a novel we were assigned to read in my eng4 class (masterpieces in world literature) and...well...i shared it with you...coz...i find it funny that the author was able to actually contextualize how we really identify books when we come across it in...for example...bookstores...

inevitable

there's that word again...and we all know of a very good word that goes hand in hand with this...::surprise::...change...

i seem to think a lot, lately, about my highschool days...can't help it...i know for sure that it is one part of my life i was at my happiest...although during that period in my life i seem to feel less than what i'm just coming to realize now...i mean i thought i was happy then...but looking back, i was actually...crazily happy...life was pretty much EASY back then...and and and...hmmm...brighter?...and when you think of the situation you find yourself in now...college life...ugh...regrets naturally come...i should have spent more of my time with the OLCians...and i seriously mean every second...even those wasted on studying during lunch breaks for a quiz in...P.E.?!?...ridiculous huh...it's like saying "i'd rather get a 0 than miss a great time with...august...hahaha...no seriously...i would have done that had I known...::SIGH::...it's worth the risk...if it will mean that i'll get to have a bunch of good memories which will last me a lifetime and push me through the hard times that I am currently suffering from now in my academic life...baon kumbaga...

::tears::

::moment of silence::

and so i give you what inspired me to pour my heart out:

"Everything changes...nature, people, the world in general. Sometimes these changes are wanted and needed, sometimes they are welcomed. But then there are the changes that nobody wants, and nobody thinks are needed. They try to go back, to undo the changes. It might work for a while, but it will never be the same as it was before. You and everyone else will remember the change, and it's there forever. Change is inevitable. Change is there forever and there is no going back. To truly love living you must learn how to accept those changes no matter what the cost. " -unknown (not famous)

but then, remember, we are free to go through life hating changes...it's much more fun like that...don't you think so...

THE END

getting serious with life starts at...hmm...1st year 1st sem...
