Chasing Ironies

Archive for the ‘Miscellaneous’ Category

Today, I feel:

  • Disappointed. How come Ron Howard manages to screw up Dan Brown’s novels’ movie adaptations? He f*cked up the Da Vinci Code and now he ruined Angels and Demons (which, I enjoyed reading). He left out plenty of good parts. I didn’t even feel the clash between religion and science, which was the whole point of the story. Grrr.

The boyfriend’s piled with work again, so here’s a quick post.

I am in need of a new  digital camera. I love the pink Samsung S73 I got from Qool Media, but using it’s a bit of a hassle.

It needs rechargeable double A batts (which have to be charged for eight hours).  Each pair of rechargeables take at least 20 pics before dying. Poof. Then I have to replace it with another pair. Then another.

I love taking photos, pero pinapahirapan ako ng cam ko.

I want something slim. And with batts that can last for a LOOOOOOOOOONG time. Maybe Canon or Sony. Dunno. I am clueless when it comes to gadgets like these.

And I need glasses. This new LCD screen is killing my eyesight. My head hurts. And to think I only had it for a day.

Ay Samsung din pala sya. Watta coincidence.

Oh, time to go home. GTG.

Got this from a friend’s friend’s Multiply.

Dahil hindi ako makapagtrabaho.

Dahil six months na kami ni Tokwaman ngayon.

At dahil fave namin pareho si Bob Ong.

Laveet! 😀

2. “Huwag mong bitawan ang bagay na hindi mo kayang makitang hawak ng iba.”

3. “Huwag mong hawakan kung alam mong bibitawan mo lang.”

4. “Huwag na huwag ka hahawak kapag alam mong may hawak ka na.”

5. “Parang elevator lang yan eh, bakit mo pagsisiksikan ung sarili mo kung walang pwesto para sayo. Eh meron naman hagdan, ayaw mo lang pansinin.”

6. “Kung maghihintay ka nang lalandi sayo, walang mangyayari sa buhay mo.. Dapat lumandi ka din.”

7. “Pag may mahal ka at ayaw sayo, hayaan mo. Malay mo sa mga susunod na araw ayaw mo na din sa kanya, naunahan ka lang.”

8. “Hiwalayan na kung di ka na masaya. Walang gamot sa tanga kundi pagkukusa.”

9. “Pag hindi ka mahal ng mahal mo wag ka magreklamo. Kasi may mga tao rin na di mo mahal pero mahal ka.. Kaya quits lang.”

Made these at the Simpsons Movie website . Am not a big Simpsons fan, I just thought these were kinda cute. Trip lang. Hehehe.

I’ve been craving SanFo’s caramel apple for a few days now. Ironic, how the Megamall is so close, yet I can’t find the time (or the opportunity) to go there and grab one.

Drool. Major drool.

We had one of our “pirata” Quiapo escapades yesterday (yes, we support piracy. baaad). While looking for a DVD to buy, Caloy stumbled upon this:

OMG, IT'S THE MUMIE!

COOL noh? 😀

A few weeks ago, my boss sent me a link to this list site called The List Universe. We create and write our own top ten sites so we were all interested in these. The site featured a top ten list of the ten most bizarre videos found on the Internet (youtube, google).

This went all the way to number one.

Creepy, yes. After watching this I never looked at The Alphabet Song the same way.

This short was made by David Lynch, the famous Academy Award nominated director, producer, screenwriter, painter, composer, cartoonist and performance artist. It was shot back in 1968, and is one of his earliest short works. According to the List Universe, this is “nightmare material”. Lynch based the concept on his then girlfriend Peggy’s niece’s dream…er, nightmare.

Enough about Lynch.

Funny, I thought. I’ve stopped having nightmares a long time ago. The last was way back in high school—after watching Sadako come out of the TV. I slept late that night, in the living room by myself. I remember the unpleasant sensation. You’re half-awake, yet you’re paralyzed. You can’t scream. You can’t move. All you can do is will for your body to wake… And you fear what’ll happen if you don’t.

Thankfully I woke up. The nightmare ended.

I wonder if Peggy’s niece felt the same way I did when she was having this kind of nightmare?
