I call this post: 18 UNITS! YATTA! [BGmusic: Blue Skies by Ella Fitzgerald]

Nicked this from Ronald of The Wind-Up Tool Chronicle. When I saw the survey, I knew I had to do it.

Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character?

Oh yes. The biggest crush I had was on Gilbert Blythe of the Anne of Green Gables books. He even made it to the top of my Top 5 Fictional Guys List [click here to check out the list - for some strange reason that I don't remember, the comments on the post aren't visible anymore, which is sad, but oh well].

The last books you bought are...

I'm ashamed to say that I don't remember. Nowadays I just borrow books from friends.

Five books you would take to a deserted island:

  • Kokology by Tadahiko Nagao & Isamu Saito [to entertain myself]
  • Any sudoku/logic book [again, to entertain myself]
  • Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Gael Marquez [because I've always wanted to read it but never got around to doing so]
  • Captain Corelli's Mandolin by Louis de BerniĆ©res [because it's lovely, and it's the kind of book I can read over and over again]
  • The Bible [because I need it/to keep me sane]

Three books that would have made more of a difference in life had I read them years earlier:
  • It's Not About Me by Max Lucado
  • Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
  • The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold [even though I read it like, two months after it was published. She should have written it earlier. ]
Five books I borrowed and didn't want to return anymore:
  • A Semester in the Life of a Teenage Dirtbag by Gordon Korman. No, it's not a deep book, no profound life insights, etc. In fact, it's published by Point . This is my guilty pleasure book. And no, I wasn't the one who borrowed it. My sister borrowed it back in grade school and probably forgot about it. I read it when I was fourteen and while I was reading it, I cried from laughing so hard. So yeah, enjoy siya.
  • Er... nothing else. Don't remember. Haha. Maybe the Neil Gaiman books Beau just lent me. Bwa. Ha. Ha.
Three books I want to like more:
  • Anything by Charles Dickens. *rolls eyes* I'm sorry, I just can't, no matter how hard I try, I always give up by the third chapter.
  • Any prescribed economics text book.
  • The Bible. Yeah, it's a hard read. And minsan nakakatamad talaga. Pero it gets easier and easier as I get more and more into it. Just like walking, baby steps first, running later. [I actually do like reading it, but I would LOVE to like it even more.]
Three books I pretended to have read:

I don't remember pretending to have read anything. Er. Maybe prescribed readings. Haha.

Three books I am happy I bought last year:
  • It's Not About Me by Max Lucado
  • Nebula Awards Showcase 2001 edited by Silver Silverberg [got it for super cheap, super sulit ]
  • Principles of Economics by Gregory Mankiw [we weren't actually required to buy it, but I bought it anyway, and it was actually fun to read - totally unexpected from an economics textbook]
Three books I wish I had written:
  • Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank [but not really, for obvious reasons - i.e. the Holocaust, anyone?]
  • The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold
  • Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes
What are you currently reading?

Haha. Andaming nakapila.
  • The Godmakers by Frank Herbert
  • The Sandman: The Doll's House by Neil Gaiman [THANK YOU BEAU!]
  • The Sandman: Season of Mists by Neil Gaiman [THANK YOU BEAU!]
  • The Sandman: Fables & Reflections by Neil Gaiman [THANK YOU BEAU!]
  • The Sandman: Brief Lives by Neil Gaiman [THANK YOU BEAU!]
  • Harlequin Valentine by Neil Gaiman [THANK YOU BEAU!]
  • Death by Neil Gaiman [THANK YOU BEAU!]
Yehey. Tapos na. Natuwa naman ako.


To those of you who commented on the new smilies I'm using, they're from multiply. I cross-post from there.

Good news. Got all my subjects at last. *happy dance* Will post a review of all of them once I've attended all of them.

For some very strange reason, my internet connection isn't functioning as it should. It refuses to behave. The only thing that works properly is YM. Will hophophop your way when the connection finally speeds up.

I call this post: Updating At Last! [BGmusic: Apple Candy by Ben Lee]

This is the first post I'll be posting that will be visible on both my multiply and my main blog. I finally decided to activate that cross-posting function [wahoo]. Okay, so first of all, hello to my new readers on my multiply, and hello to my old readers at delusional, and sorry for not updating regularly, and not bloghopping. I will be doing so tonight. Have nothing else to do. And I missed reading about your lives.

Anyway, updates. *clears throat*
  • We have officially moved out of Baguio, and now I have suddenly found myself to be a QC-er. [See my two most recent albums at my multiply for some pictures.] Yes, I'm homesick, and no, I don't want to talk about it right now.
  • I'm not a dormer anymore. I could have applied for a slot, but then I thought:
      • Close to all my classes, so between classes I can take showers, naps, wake up fifteen minutes before my next class, etc.
      • Close to most of my friends, since most of my friends are dormers.
      • I can do basically whatever I want, as long as I pay attention to the dorm curfew.
      • The food.
      • Loneliness. Sometimes when my friends are all busy, and I have no-one to talk to, it gets really depressing.
      • The food.
      • Having to do all my chores on my own.
      • The food.
      • FOOD!
      • Having my family close to me all the time.
      • FOOD!
      • Having to share the burden of chores [like, I don't have to take care of my laundry anymore.]
      • FOOD!
      • Reliable internet connection.
      • FOOD!
      • Having my family close to me all the time.
      • Non-negotiable rules.
      • Commuting [huhuhu].
  • So basically, it was my stomach that did the deliberations.
  • No-one ask me any questions about enrollment. Let's just say that I am far from finished. Pang-ilang late reg ko na ito? *ponders*
  • Prince Foamday: I've decided on pulling him down from the pedestal I placed him on. Shouldn't have put him there in the first place. This... thing I have for him is far from healthy. I have so many more important things to think about. Boys should be the last thing on my mind. No matter how near-perfect they may be.

When I think of you I remember...

Chamomile fields.

Black Labradors.

Mr. Burns. ^_^

Contact lenses.





Green eyeshadow.




And above all things, one of the most beautiful friendships the world has ever witnessed.

You've been gone for more than a year, and it still hurts.

To a girl who will forever be eighteen, and who will always be twelve when I remember her: I will not stop remembering.

I call this post: Yeouch. [BGmusic: Listening for the Weather by Bic Runga]

I injured my hand a couple of weeks ago [forgot how, I just remember the pain], and I thought it had healed, but awhile ago when I was moving my stuff out the dorm, hauling boxes around my room by my lonesome, the injury was awakened and now it hurts whenever I bend my hand like thi- OW. See?

Today has been tiring. It's a good thing that there weren't a lot of people around UP awhile ago because if I had run into anyone I knew at my state awhile ago, I would have died. Since I looked like a zombie already awhile, double dead na yun. Poor me.

See, I only had three hours of sleep last night, and the whole morning I was packing and revising my short story for CW110 [finished it, and I'm not pleased with it because I rushed it]. Oh, and I didn't have breakfast.

Pero bumabawi na ako. I've been eating since I got here in ISOT [our new place, which we haven't really moved into yet]. It's nice to have a fridge to raid. You miss these kinds of things when you're dorming. *Sigh.* Haven't slept yet, though. I don't want to weird out my body clock just yet.

Allow me be a little random; I'm too sabog to focus on anything. I've been doing nothing for the past - what - five hours, just watching videos on Youtube... and look what I stumbled across.

Remember the Honeyz? Gosh, I used to love them. Anyway, the song's really great, pero nakakatawa lang kasi sobrang sablay talaga yung video. I gotta admit though, that girl in the blue tube top [name's Mariama I think, I'm not sure] is really, REALLY hot. I've got a girly cruuush. [Ew. Haha.]

Anyway, that's it. I apologize for the walang kwentang post and for not bloghopping. I will bloghop maybe this weekend. [I'll be in Baguio. Yihee.] Toodles.
