o46 * ex-factor

It could all be so simple
But you'd rather make it hard
Loving you is like a battle
And we both end up with scars
Tell me, who I have to be
To get some reciprocity
No one loves you more than me
And no one ever will

Is this just a silly game
That forces you to act this way
Forces you to scream my name
Then pretend that you can't stay
Tell me, who I have to be
To get some reciprocity
No one loves you more than me
And no one ever will

No matter how I think we grow
You always seem to let me know
It ain't workin' It ain't workin'
And when I try to walk away
You'd hurt yourself to make me stay
This is crazy
This is crazy

I keep letting you back in
How can I explain myself
As painful as this thing has been
I just can't be with no one else
See I know what we got to do
You let go and I'll let go too
'Cause no one's hurt me more than you
And no one ever will

Care for me, care for me
I know you care for me

There for me, there for me
Said you'd be there for me

Cry for me, cry for me
You said you'd die for me

Give to me, give to me
Why won't you live for me

o45 * speaking of surprises

my boss was surprised when he found out about my decision to resign. maybe he expected that i would be staying a little bit longer... maybe because he still asked me to help him out with the t2t project recently assigned (or passed on-) to him and maybe because i didn't show any signs or say anything about my plans. the "settling" thing might have added weight to the surprise. all these and his reaction is very understandable and very well expected by me.

a few minutes or maybe an hour ago, JJ noticeably looked at my table and the scattered stuff on it... for the first time. usually, he would just casually pass by my cubicle, ignore whatever it was that i was busy with or even when i'm being unproductive. but this time, he really obviously gazed at my table and it seemed like he was looking for something else.

worried that i was playing my music too loud, i asked, "ano po yun? malakas po ba yung music ko..? sorry...." ..then he replied, "hinde.. ano yan?" .."Updharma Down," i answered gladly. he said, "talaga..? ano pa music mo na kapareho nyan? ..."uhm.. wala na eh.. mga rock na yung iba," i said proudly, smiling.

"how rock?,"he asked. i said, "uhm, punk rock gaya nitong Join the Club, yung iba nasa bahay eh.. Stonefree, Imago.." i forgot what else i mentioned surprised at his interest, and asked why.

i could certainly remember clearly JJ's comment.. rather, reaction to what i just said.. and i would never forget it for the rest of my music-listening life.

he said, "cool.. wala naman.. nakakagulat lang." (*_*)

my mouth said, "ah..hehe" ..but my head was saying, "haha what the heck.. you think i only listen to popular rock..? ..or what wursh wursh people call trash-sell-out music..? hehe ..or maybe he's surprised that we actually have this particular shared taste in music that his bright, blue-eagled coño mind could not seem to withstand. haha (ok, i'm just exaggerating his coñoness... but it did seem like that.. :p)

oh, btw, a few minutes ago he asked me if i have a Cynthia Alexander CD. told him i lost my Insomnia copy. eh he's looking for the most recent album pala. eh ayoko naman yung album na bago. :p he commented further, "rocker ka pala..." OMG. haha!

Here's Pag-Agos by Filipino kick-ass band, Updharma Down.

at sa aking pagkubli
hampas ng araw
pagdamdam ng gabi
tulog ang iyong mga kamay
di na ko makapag-antay

isang umaga muling aahon
at sisikat sa mga panahon
na tayo pang dalawa
masayang nagsasama

buong araw ng pag-agos
kailan ang huling unos
di alam kung tatakbo
kusang lalayo sayo

isang umaga muli ng pag-iisa
walang mayakap at makasama
pusong pilit na sinugatan
landas kong karaniwan

buong araw ng pag-agos
kailan ang huling unos
di alam kung tatakbo
kusang lalayo sayo

malayo man malapit din
ayos lang agos lang

o44 * horo, not homo..

can you believe how timely and so close to reality this horoscope is to some recent events and some hopeful developments in my life right now..?

There's not much you can do today to make things different, so just let it go.

It's time to think about what you want in your life and what you don't. You've got unlimited resources when it comes to people power, so look through your address book. Your pals can help you reach your goals.

do web company owners really hire fortune tellers to make their horoscopes accurate? ..or do they invent those themselves..? hehe

o42 * Resign

That's right, resign. Resign from places and people who do not bring the best in you. Resign from vices and sins that are slowly but surely eating you up. Resign from falsehood and pretenses. Be true. Have substance. No more japorms. No more papogi. Just give your very best and God will take care of the rest. Resign to God's will and God's plan for you and you will have peace-that peace of Easter, that peace, which the world cannot give or take away. Good luck, and all the best as you walk the Holy Week. The road that leads to true life is never easy, but the assurance is there: It is a road that leads to life, and He himself is on the road with you, every step along the way.

o41 * Exactly How Holy Will Holy Week Be..?

i'll be going home to pampanga tomorrow..!
i may be depressed right now for some reason, but i'm so freakin' excited to take a one week vacation,
even if i need to try to be holy for one, whole, week!
...despite the fact that i'm bringing home some work.

i am hoping that when i get back to work from vacation, i'd be able to present some good stuff.. well, at least before i exit the company.
i also hope that with this week-long vacation, i'd have a clearer view of who i am, what i want to do and what my plans would be in the next days, weeks, months and years.

i'm really, really, REALLY praying for the best... not just fopr me, but for others as well. as always.

have a blessed Holy Week. don't forget to reflect on your Christian life. ;)

o4o * Hangman [i shot the Walrus]

ok, i dunno what this song means and what point it wants to deliver, but i enjoy singing it and mimicking bamboo and rico's insane blending and weird articulation of the lyrics.... :p

Koo-koo-ka-choo I shot the eggman
Under an April morning sky
Immersed in capuccino,
and dirty magazines
Like David Sylvian in my dreams
So from the second floor
A violent sound like laughter
Someone screams "St. Francis Square police!"

Pictures in the pond,
floating rather pointlessly
Sont les mots qui vont
"Please knock me down!"
Everyone says he was first
to be king of the underground
Finally, finally, dottee Home and free
Portobello weekender just you and me

o39 * 2o million

20 million diamonds crown the sky tonight
Silence for two lovers’ everything
They tell me whispering’s a virtue, and holding hands’ their game
‘Tis cold, it’s cold

And as I watch the candle (burn/turn) this might (away/to day)
My life collects another yesterday

Alone in the darkness, I am waiting for the one
While lovers wait for the sun, lay I Waiting for the one.

Stalk the streets do lovers in this town tonight
20 million heartbeats holding hands
For them, it’s darkness that’s most precious,
but tell me who can I embrace?
The cold? There’s no one here to hold

Who’ll light the darkness with his (her) name,
heal this blackout pain

o38 * Quack!

Don't you just love and hate him at the same time..?!

"Mmm. Frosted Sugar Bits. The great taste of frosted sugar in bits."

"Hey, Santa, it's me, Johnny. Remember I'm the one that beat you up last year 'cause I thought you were a burglar?"

"Enough about me, now let's talk about... me."

[eating ice cream with a toothache] "Chomp, chomp, chomp, AAAUGH! The PAIN! The Horrible PAIN! Mmmm.... Creamy! Chomp, Chomp, Chomp, AAAUGH! The PAIN! The stabbing knives of pain! Ooh! It's got nuts in it!"

"Hey Foxy Mama, You smell kinda pretty. Wanna smell me? Hoohah!"

"Dog... donkey... Well, they both start with the letter "N"..."

"Whoa! A castle in the sky! Just like in that fairy tale of Little Red Rumplestiltskin and the Three Bears and Gretel!"

Johnny Bravo: "What do you think, Rubber Ducky?"
Rubber Ducky: "Quack, quack."
Johnny Bravo: "My thoughts exactly!"

oh, yes.. haha take him away!
