habang nagsusulat ako ng synopsis…

…sabi ni Jerwin: Bebs, habulin ka pala ng mga pangit no?

*mahabang nakagigimbal na silensyo, pagkatapos ay tunog ng microwave*

Bebs: Potangena. Wonga no!

Salamat Jerwin.  Utang na loob ko sa’yo ang pagtaas ng aking ego. ‘Lul!

Wrote this almost two years ago on September 13, 2005 in my old blog. Probably, one of my favorite entries ever:

As of this moment, a baby is born and a suicide attempt has just commenced. Somebody’s singing my favorite song and a gay couple is having sex. A heart is broken and someone’s saying goodbye for good. A plane is flying and a passenger is crying because he’s away from home. A traitor is being slapped and a loan is being paid.

Currently, I’m thinking why for the nth time, my thesis script was rejected by my adviser. Maybe I forgot a film has to have a heart. Or perhaps I just analyze too much.

At this instant, a corned beef is being cooked.   A house is burning while an ugly guy is jacking off.  Someone’s buying a polka dot underwear and a child is raped.  Someone’s negotiating with a hooker, a rich wife is paying her husband’s ransom, a 30-year old bum urinates on a wall and a fanatic cries over a rerun of Ally McBeal.

At this time, while scratching my itchy flaky scalp, I wonder how in the world did I get involved with a wrong man again last night.

At present, an innocent kid is stabbed, a gold earring is pawned, a love letter is written, a cellphone is snatched, a call is rejected and two strangers talk in their webcams.

At this point, I’m trying to make sense of everything.

Now, someone’s buying a new car, one’s trying to get an ex-lover’s trust back, a picture is taken, someone’s planning to destroy the world, an applicant’s on a nerve-wracking interveiw, another blockbuster is being planned, a restless guy is in the subway train late for work, a loud fart explodes, someone’s laughing over an old joke, a curly hair is blown, an umbrella-less creature is soaking in the rain and two strangers are in one place without knowing they’ll end up together in the future.

While all of these are happening, my perfect someone, who I haven’t met yet, is thinking of me, wondering if I exist.

happy bday, shitzu

Hindi ito tribyut. Twenty-two ka pa naman Shitz, di ba. Pero dumaan ka na rin sa maraming labels. Mula Leo hanggang Shitzu hanggang Ernie, andun pa rin ang short term memory loss mo. Isa kang stuff toy ng bayan, unan na pwedeng tandayan bente kwatro oras.

Oo, hindi ito tribute. Masarap lang talaga ang pizza at istapegi at keyk kanina. Salamat Shitz! Sa lahat.

Pagdating ng aming kaibigang itago na lang natin sa pangalang Bols (wag ng rumeak para di makilala), itinanong niya “Lumalaki din ba ang areola pag nagpalaki ng boobs?”

Wala na akong masabi, Bols. Classic ka uli. Kung sino ka man, wag ka na rumeak.

Nadiscover ko ‘to kanina, habang tinitingnan ang dashboard ng blog ko, salamat sa kapangyarihan ng WordPress. Me nagku-clone ng aking walang kwentang blog. Grabe. Gamitin ba ang site ko sa propayl niya! Tseh. Kapal ng muka. Tampalin kita diyan e.

Anyone who comes across this profile, her name is Kima. Ay, muka ngang bakla si ate e. Kaya IT na lang, para safe. Wag maniwala sa kanya. Isa siyang impostora!!!!!!!

Ate/Kuya naman. Respetuhin mo naman ako. Kahit bilang mammal man lang. Pinaghirapan ko namang isulat ang mga pag-iemo ko dito di ba. Tsaka, angganda ng site name ko oh. BEBSISMS. Tapos, iaassociate mo lang sa pagmumuka mo. Ayan. Anlayo naman ng diperensiya ng imahe ng orihinal na awtor sa impostora. Ibidinsiya!

ang void

Parang dry spell. Di ako makapagsulat.

Ng konsepto. Ng concept paper. Ng synopsis. Ng isang talata. Ng iskrip. Ng blog. Pakshet.

Kaya…

Goodbye woooooooooooooooooooooooorrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrld.

peke

Parte ka lang ng isang magandang panaginip. Isang resureksyon ng pag-asa ni Cinderella sa isang happy ever after kasama ang kanyang perpektong prince charming. Ni hindi nangyari. Hindi mangyayari.

Nalunod ako sa aparisyon mo. Ang pagtatangkang masilip ang iyong isang milyon at isang maskarang naikubli sa ilalim ng nakakatuwang ngiti at malinis na sumbrero. Isa kang trahedyang naghihintay na mangyari at eto na nga, ang katotohanang walang katotohanang naganap sa iyong mga salita o sa iyong mga matang hindi ko nasilayan.

Walang pasubaling mamumutawi sa mga nanginginig kong labi ang “sayang” dahil wala nang salita ang kayang yumapos sa mga panahong akala mo hindi mo ako maramdaman dahil binalot ka ng iyong sariling mga kasinungalingan.

Naghihintay ang mga kamay ko tulad ng pag-aasam ng mga tulang bibigkasin ng mga pusong itinalaga para maantig ng mga ito. Ikaw ang lamig ng dapithapon na hindi nakakapanindig balahibo dahil nakikipaglaban sa paparating na dilim at usok na naiwan ng naghihingalong piraso ng liwanag. Tulad ng namumulang araw, magtatago ka sa malawak na dagat ng walang pag-aalinlangan at hindi mo bigyan ng pagbabalik tanaw ang mga paa kong humakbang palayo sa iyong kinaroroonan.

Para sa aking pamamaalam sa iyo, na isang malungkot na magandang panaginip, lulundag ako sa malamig na dagat. Muli, ang paglabas mula sa baul ng aking rebound song.

“…and it’s time to face the truth. That I will never be with you.”

wala ng ulan

Kelangan ko ng nutrisyon para sa aking medula oblongata. Protina para sa brainstorming sessions. Paghahanda para bigyan ng direksyon ang nagugulantang na utak ni Gavs, ang masayang konsepto ni Stays o di kaya ang kolaborasyon sa cranky na si Jerwin.  Isang linggo na lang at paghuhukom na naman. Pagkatapos, isang taong paghihintay kung sakaling di papalarin.

Pero kahit anong gawin ko, wala nang mapipigang katas ang utak ko. Siyet. Senyales ng tagtuyot.  At pinag-iisipan ko na rin maging propesyonal kontesera tulad ni Stacie. Buwaha.

Ang hilig ni Gloria maglipat ng holiday. Tseh.  Buti na lang at nagsisimula na naman ako sa aking Operation: Tsekwa.  Kaya, hinihintay ko ang aking pagtatalbog mula sa karukhaan.

Gusto kong kumain ng cheesecake.

nevermind nirvana

Kurt Cobain action figures will be released sometime this month. Aw. Will the gun be purchased separately?

Nirvana’s 1991 album is one of the best albums ever produced, selling over 25 million copies worldwide and counting. In it are the smash hits “Smells like teen spirit”, “In bloom”, “Come as you are”, “Lithium” and “Polly”.

Nevermind’s album cover shows a baby swimming toward a bill on a fishhook. According to Cobain, he conceived the idea while watching a television program on water births with Grohl. Cobain mentioned it to Geffen’s art director Robert Fisher. The fishhook and dollar bill were also Cobain’s idea, albeit initially suggested as a joke. Fisher found some stock footage of underwater births but they were too graphic, and the stock house that controlled the photo of a swimming baby they had settled on instead wanted $7,500 a year for its use.

Instead, Fisher sent a photographer to a pool for babies to take pictures. Five shots were yielded and the band settled on the image of a three-month-old infant named Spencer Elden. However, there was some concern because Elden’s penis was visible in the image. Geffen prepared an alternate cover without the penis, as they were afraid that it would offend people, but relented when Cobain made it clear that the only compromise he would accept was a sticker covering the penis that would say “If you’re offended by this, you must be a closet pedophile.” The alternate cover image is featured in Michael Azerrad’s Nirvana biography Come as You Are: The Story of Nirvana.

The hook, line, and dollar were superimposed later anyway. Kurt Cobain and wife Courtney Love after seeing the photo, agreed that they would take Spencer out to dinner when he got older. Elden’s parents allowed their son to be photographed for $200. [source: www.wikipedia.org]

Spencer Elden is now 17 years old and on August 16, 2007, Elden announced that he felt like a porn star. “It’s kind of creepy that that many people have seen me naked,” Elden said. “I feel like I’m the world’s biggest porn star.”

Here’s Spencer, then and now.

they’re back

One of my favorite bands, Collective Soul will be releasing their new album “Afterwords” on August 28. Their first single “Hollywood” is already on the airwaves.

tawagang bebe

So, nakakasuka nang marinig ang mga tawagang bhe, love, mahal, baby, honey, sweet, dear, heart at iba pang pasweet na lahat ng mga bitter ay di kayang lunukin.

Norm na ngayon ang hindi magpakanorm bilang andaming magpartners na gustong magpaka-unique. Ayaw na nilang magtawagan ng mga patweetums na ginagamit na ng lahat ng populasyon ng buong universe. Bilang evil lang ako at walang konsepto ng katamisan, nagnakaw ako sa isang forums sa g4m ng mga tawagang nagpatumbling sakin bilang tao.

Kumain ng popcorn at lumunok ng soda habang nagbabasa.

Eto na: honeypot; buttercup; honeybunch; ken (di ko gets); asawa ko; nehneh (short for honey). Me nagsabi pa i called him “my”…but we ended our relationship 3 months ago na..heheh” (bleh, buti nga). Tapos sabay hirit ng “i also called my textmate as “hunky-yummy”. Uhuh. “others were “george”, but most of all i called them by the last syllable of their first names… At talagang dumugo ilong ko sa george.

Duroy; mwaf-mwaf; manong; baby boi; boo boo; baby prince; “mah’ smooch!!!coz we love kissing each other… (How about smack or drool? Oo na. Bitter lang); melon and i would be called lemon”. Huwaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.

Sige, magmodang pagkain na tayo: cupcake; tart; tokneneng tawag ko sa kanya
kwek kwek tawa nia sakin”; “pianono…
ang sarap kasi ng pianono! (ano yung pinanono?)”; pancake; asukal; munchkins; “Mr. French Fries and his My Milky Way Man”; vanilla shake; iced tea; bacon-almonds (kelangan partner); siopao (sana di gawa sa pusa yung palaman).

Speaking of animals, simulan natin sa meow; baby bear (pwedeng isama na rin sina papa bear at mama bear); tiger, penguin; piglet; “panda….ako ang rabbit”.

Daddy yo at ang kanyang mga variations; dada; lao gong (husband in mandarin); Doodles; Doody;Doody Woody Oody; Duditz; Dudz; chupapi.

Eto, talagang pa-unique: sine and cosine… sin cos (baka mga Math majors or parehong bumagsak sa calculus nung higschool); pillow; “bekoy= be+ko dinagdagan lang ng y…
yamyam= wala lang gusto ko lang bigkasin sa kanya dahil masarap syang kasama…..
kalbo= pag naiinis ako“; “
habit… bit for short! habit namin mag sex!”; troll; howe (di ko uli gets); mokong; voodoo doll.

Kumapit kayo: buhbuhgee; “elmo kasi ako si cookie monster nya”; “pag naglalambingan ‘damulag’ tawag ko sa kanya sa akin ‘babi’ tawag nya”; Tarajing Pot Pot; shoti; shorty (I wonder); sleepyhead.

Me isang tumatawag sa boyps niya ng “tae”. Payn.

At talagang dito ako naubusan ng pagkatao: chinchintaberoo.
