Just wanna greet my dearest Mom a happy, happy Mother's Day!

I know I can be difficult at times, and I know I haven't exactly been as good as I would have wanted to be as a daughter, but I want you to know that I love you, and that I'm grateful that it was you who brought me out into this world. You have loved me unconditionally and I just hope that in my own simple ways I was able to make you happy.

Thank you so much, Ma. Mahal na mahal kita.

Now that I have DSL, I think I should go ahead and start that mp3 rotation I've been meaning to do back when I still had T-F.Net...

Yeah, I think that'd be nice. I already have a new layout on the works. XD But it's been a while since I coded a website. I wonder how it'll be when I start typing < H T M L >...

Hopefully, I still know my codes. XD

I've just finished reading Chapter 70 of HAGAREN, and I still couldn't believe what I saw.

Spoilers abound...Collapse )

Now, on WWE...

On NYR 2007, Triple H injured his quad.

Right after WM 23, King Booker went out to have surgery performed on his knee.

Sometime after WM 23, The Undertaker injured his shoulder.

And just recently at some SD! house show, Mr. Kennedy injured his arm.

All top Superstars. The first should be coming back soon (and I'm really excited about it). The second, I haven't read any news about his condition yet, but surely he'll be fine...?

Anyway, of the four, the last two are the ones I feel really sorry for. Last April 1, Royal Rumble 2007 winner UT was able to defended his WM streak by defeating Batista for the WHC title, while the other, Kennedy won a shot at any championship title for the next 12 months on the same night. But right now, both of them are out. And that's just so sad because the Dead Man finally has the belt around his waist, and Mr. Kennedy seems headed for greater things but along the way they had to get injured. It also doesn't help that they're two of SD!'s biggest stars...

So, what happened? I haven't seen the latest on RAW nor SD! yet but I went ahead and spoiled myself (which I should really stop doing) to fidn out that Edge had won the MiTB contract from Kennedy (what?!) on RAW and cashed it in at SD! after UT has been taken down by Mark Henry (what?! reprise).

Now, I'm not against Edge as the champ. I mean, gee, even if he's heel, I would like to see him as either the new WWE or WH champion (after HBK has had his run, though), but I'm surprised at the suddenness of things. It's like, the other day, he was chasing after Cena's belt and feuding with Orton, then the next day he goes to wreck havoc on SD! for the WHC belt. O_o

But I guess congratulations are in order. You are one sly s.o.b, Edge. That, and you look really good with the belt.

Still, I hope UT and Kennedy get well soon and reclaim what's rightfully theirs. The same thing goes for King Booker. As for Triple H... I hope he makes an appearance soon.

I have been on a stump lately. I've been busying myself with my numerous fandoms, WWE and TS2, that I feel like I'm losing what very little creativity I have left in my mind. It's not even like I don't have ideas popping in my head every now and then 'cause I do. Sometimes I would just lie in bed after being awake for a couple of hours already just to think of a possible storyline and stuff like that. The problem, it seems, always happens to be the execution.

Envisioning things and weaving the proper words to express my thoughts in my mind isn't that much of a problem, really. Daydreaming is an art I have long mastered. But what I've always found challenging was putting down those thoughts and words into actual writing. It simply drives me nuts (haha, I've always wanted to type that) when I don't get to express myself as I would have wanted and you know, get that feeling I'm trying to convey across. Sometimes, I feel like just dropping the idea - cast it into oblivion - because I can't make it right.

Right now, thanks to my current state of unproductivity, I still have quite a lot of themes to finish for fated_children (at the rate I'm going, I feel like I should drop my claim already), icons for sentient_icons, and a bunch of other fics at FF.Net. And that's excluding all the stuff that I still have stored in my comp, waiting to be contined/edited...

There are times when I just couldn't help but say "sucks to be me". This is one of those.

----------


I forgot to mention it before, but a week and a half has already passed since I underwent dental surgery. I was miserable for the some time - and it's not because of the pain. The pain, I could tolerate. I only needed to take painkillers thrice during the recovery period and that was it. The problem was that I had to stick to soft diet. Now, I've no problem with going on a soft diet, but for someone who loves to eat, having my choices limited to oatmeal, noodles and soup for almost a week made me cranky every now and then. It annoyed me to no end to see my family have good food while I stuck with what I would usually only have as either appetizer or snack.

At least I'm over that now. I'm still having problems with one of the operated areas whenever I brush (stupid thread, I always mistake it for some morsel of food) but other than that, everything's fine.

----------


I'm still waiting for my contract from SPL. Hiro said that I might just have to call the company to ask about it. Hm. I think I might. Now, where did that calling card go?

I'm also still waiting for a call from Images. But I guess I'm going to have to stop keeping faith that they'll follow things up, and finally take matters into my own hands.

----------


Wow, for someone who's been at a loss for the right words to use in her stories, I sure typed a helluva lot today. XD Well, that'll do for now.

A la prochaine.

My family went out yesterday to meet dad's friend who invited us for lunch in Ongpin. So, ok, off we went. Unfortunately, we got stuck in traffic for most of the trip. Dad tried taking some shortcuts but we keep ending up in a tighter spot. And what's worse was that when we were already so close to getting to our destination, the street we're supposed to enter was clogged with trucks. We would have just parked somewhere nearby and walked to the resto had there been any empty parking spaces. But noooo! So... In the end, we didn't make it to the lunch date. We just drove to RP and ate there. Bacolod Chicken Inasal is LOVE!

Too bad they don't have Dairy Queen anymore. I was actually hoping for some vanilla shake before we went home. Ah, well. Better luck next time.

Shawn Michaels came out to his Sexy Boy theme for his #1 Contender Match with Randy Orton in RAW this week. Ever since DX reformed in June and even though HHH got injured in January, HBK's always come out to Break It Down so I was surprised at the sudden change. I mean, I LOVE Sexy Boy (the fact that I could barely remember the song when I heard it being played by one of our college bands notwithstanding; it was only last year that I got back to faithfully watching WWE, and when I was a kid I never really paid attention to entrance themes and the only one that I remembered would be the Undertaker's), but hearing that song play as he made his way into the ring was just unexpected. I don't know what that meant, but DX dissolving is far from it. Maybe we're seeing the return of The Heartbreak Kid of old? Oh, I hope so.

Entrance music aside, his match with Orton was very good. I wish I could write in detail what happened in the ring, but since I can't do a decent job on play-by-play, I'll just say that again: the match was good! Except for the ending, which was kind of... weird. But whatever. Orton sells moves far better than Cena does. Ho-ho. (But before anyone gets the wrong idea, I don't hate Cena, alright?) Poor HBK, though. Got cut open somewhere near his eye. Scary. Then again, he's had worse. But still... May it be minor or major, it's still an injury nonetheless.

Anyway. I would have to look for a video of that match. Just as I would have to look for a video of The Cutting Edge segment. Now that was nice. All three contenders in the ring + The Champ over the WWE gold. Wee~! HBK's facial expressions and gestures had been very comical there. (It was like 1997! Or is it just me thinking that?)

So now we have: John Cena (c) vs. Randy Orton vs. Edge vs. Shawn Michaels for Backlash. Cena vs. HBK was what I was expecting, but the added opponents made everything more interesting. I just hope that HBK wins. But if he doesn't (well, I don't want to sound pessimistic but hey, who knows?), and Edge does, then I won't have a problem with that. I like Orton, and I'm cool with Cena, but I don't want to see either guy as WWE Champion. At least not now.

In some random page on the WWW, I remember reading something about how Backlash might turn out to be a Fatal Four Way for the WWE Championship. Well, whaddya know, whoever wrote that stuff may or may not have been serious about that, but his prediction was pretty much spot-on.

So, Backlash 2007 would see not John Cena vs. Shawn Michaels. Instead, it would be John Cena vs. Shawn Michaels vs. Randy Orton vs. Edge. Hey, wait! What happened to the Orton-Edge feud? I thought we're gonna see a one-on-one match between the two come April 29 (or 30, in my neck in the woods). Haha, wow! Talk about a big surprise there. Regardless of the additional, uh, people to worry about, I hope Shawn Michaels wins this time around. As I see it, there's a slim chance of that happening, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Anyway, ANMATH2 final exam would be tomorrow morning, 8AM. Too early for my taste, but meh...That's my last class, might as well get it done and over with asap. I just hope my grades don't get done and over with, though. Gah. Better start reviewing!

Hm. I wonder how Tin and her groupmates' magazine turned out...

I hate yesterday.

Okay, that sounds awkward but... Whatever.

Went to mass yesterday afternoon. Joined the procession after that. Then had dinner at Chowking when all that was over.

No, it's not going to mass that I hate. Taking part in the procession's fine, too. What got me POed was what happened during the procession: my pinky toe getting stepped on-slash-stubbed by Chelsea while we were walking. I don't blame Chelsea; it was an accident, an accident that I just wish I could have been

spared from. But nooo! It had to happen and now I've a really ugly looking wound on my toe. The nail got upturned a bit, too, by the way. Talk about bad luck.

Oh, and sometime between two and three yesterday morning, I also hit my shin on the corner of my bed. Found a nasty bruise there this afternoon, too.

Argh! I must have done something to displease somebody up there...

Tin suggested we play Pusoy Dos when we got home. So yeah, we ended up playing until a little past two, with (gasp!) Chelsea taking up most of the win since she joined us. XDXDXD Niiice.

I love my sisters. Even though I tend to bitch out and get annoyed at them every now and then, I still love them to bits. Life wouldn't be the same without those two bundles of energy.

Gah. Can't believe I just said that. >_< Haha, LOL.

Anyway, I really need to start cleaning up my HD and saving some of my stuffs on CD's. I've downloaded 2GB+ worth of videos over the course of a month and I really need to store them elsewhere 'coz I've only like 200MB left of HD space... *_* Rarr. I need a new HD.

"If I don't do it right away it just bugs me like it's taunting me. I love when I start out perfectly organized at the beginning of the school year but all it takes is one loose paper for me to let it all fall apart and be disorganized for the rest of the year. Sometimes it feels like if it can't be perfect, it's not worth trying. It's like when you know you need to go through your closet and clean it out but the task seems too daunting or when you don't want to start working out because it'll take too long to start seeing results. ... I hate people touching me and I hate touching things that other people touched." - an excerpt from an article written about Mr. VKM on Stephanie Levesque Online

I was reading through some old articles about Steph out of curiousity when I came across that passage. What the author said struck me in that I thought I was the only one who had those... eccentricities. XD

----------

I just finished Ice Princess for the third time, thanks to Chelsea popping it into the DVD player while I was out brushing my teeth. The movie's a good watch, heart-warming and funny, something that's definitely for the whole family (or in our case, just the girls). Pretty cool soundtrack, too.

Fairytale-ish wish-come-true movies are nice, they make me feel good and emotional whenever I watch them, but they always tend to leave a bitter aftertaste.

On one hand, I admire the protagonist's strong will to follow her heart and reach for her dreams, but on the other hand, I can't help but feel angry and pathetic because deep down inside I know I can never be like her. I can't break free from my chains and get out of my comfort zone - and it's not even a matter of whether or not I have the capability to; I think I have that. What I know I don't have, however, is the courage to stray away from the safe side and not regret doing it when the going gets tough.

Security has always been a great consideration. If can't be sure and confident with whatever it is I decide to do (or be), then I might as well not take any chances. Life is too short to waste in making mistakes and regretting doing them.

But at the same time, I understand that life is also too short to waste on thinking about what-could-bes and what-could-have-beens.

Ah, well. I still have a lot of years ahead of me. I'll eventually find myself and my dreams. Whatever that could be.

Right now, I guess I'll have to be content with chasing after every little thing that would make me happy. It's better (and less complicated) that way, anyway.

----------

Yesterday I went to SPL with Pao to take a job exam. The exam had two parts. I'm pretty confident with how the first part went. Just a bit annoyed that I hadn't been confident enough to strike out one line there that wasn't really needed. The second part was hell, though. That's when my brain decided to crash. For a good amount of time I was at loss for what to do. When I thought I understood what I had to do, it turned out that I was dead wrong and had to rewrite everything I did for like... How many papers have I been given? About five or six... Gah. Talk about stupidity. But I think I managed to submit something that made sense one way or another.

Anyway. The whole thing ended early. I was done at around 10:30. Had lots of free time on my hands so I decided to go HBK shirt-hunting as soon as I got back to Ayala. First stop was SM Makati, where I found one. It was sky blue and had Shawn's heart logo at the front and H.B.K Shawn Michaels printed at the back. To say that I was ecstatic would be an understatement. I was like "HELL YEAH!" But it was large, so I asked a saleslady if they had it in small. Unfortunately, yes, unfortunately, the shirt was the last of its kind.

OH, HELL NO!

Well, yeah. You could say I was pretty disappointed. But I decided to try my luck at Landmark, but they had none there. Tried Gateway, too, but sadly, the booth I saw there before had been long gone. So what I did instead was to buy myself a DQ vanilla milkshake and head home to have lunch and some badly needed zzz's.

----------

I'm not that upset with how Wrestlemania23 ended anymore. *sigh* Yes, I'm still disappointed with Shawn Michaels losing, but what's done is done, and I just choose to think of what happened as, well, business. Cena may have retained the title, but a lot of people know who's better in the ring and it sure ain't him.

That said, I'm really looking forward to RAW this Saturday when Shawn cuts a promo on Cena with allusions to Hulk Hogan and Bret Hart. Ooh, nice.

Speaking of nice promos. I read about what Edge had to say regarding Cena, HBK and Orton. Really funny.

Oh, and there are other things I'm looking forward to see come Saturday night: 1) when Shawn threw Cena over the top rope, effectively eliminating their team from the Tag Team Battle Royale (yet another title dropped without getting pinned. Hehe, cool move, Shawn, really cool.), and 2) The Hardys getting the title in the end. Sweet!

Well, I guess that's all for now. Toodles! (Whoa, Sharpei, is that you?)

My first PPV and I wasn't even able to keep my ticket. Hmph.

Anyway, I went to see Wrestlemania23 with my baby sis, Chelsea, and our family friend, PBB's Jeremy early today, and I must say, it was worth every single cent I spent. At first I was worried that we might miss something because it took us quite some time to leave the house and get to SM, but fortunately, when we arrived at the cinema, the event has just started, with Aretha Franklin singing America The Beautiful. We were also able to get seated at a very nice spot, so yipee!

Ahoy, spoilers!Collapse )
