(poke the pig)

Subject:Sorry We're Closed
Time:6:02 pm.
I am no longer the same person who opened this journal.  I am moving.  Can't tell you when and where exactly yet.  But I'll see some of you around.

I know some people have closed their journals with this very same song.  But I can find nothing more suitable.

Goodbye.

Here's Where the Story Ends
- The Sundays

People I know, places I go, make me feel tongue-tied
I can see how people look down, theyre on the inside
Heres where the story ends
People I see, weary of me showing my good side
I can see how people look down
Im on the outside
Heres where the story ends
Ooh heres where the story ends

Its that little souvenir of a terrible year
Which makes my eyes feel sore
Oh I never should have said, the books that you read
Were all I loved you for
Its that little souvenir of a terrible year
Which makes me wonder why
And its the memories of your shed that make me turn red
Surprise, surprise, surprise

Crazy I know, places I go
Make me feel so tired
I can see how people look down
Im on the outside
Oh heres where the story ends
Ooh heres where the story ends

Its that little souvenir of a terrible year
Which makes my eyes feel sore
And who ever wouldve thought the books that you brought
Were all I loved you for
Oh the devil in me said, go down to the shed
I know where I belong
But the only thing I ever really wanted to say
Was wrong, was wrong, was wrong

Its that little souvenir of a colourful year
Which makes me smile inside
So I cynically, cynically say, the world is that way
Surprise, surprise, surprise, surprise, surprise
Heres where the story ends
Ooh heres where the story ends

Subject:I'd Be Better If I Were Dead
Time:11:40 am.
Mood: fucking miserable.
I no longer have a life to speak of.

The little I have of me is spread among work and three parents, separately.  Two of which do not know how to pull their own weight.

It is a huge compliment to be entrusted with things such as furnishing a pad for a newly-bachelored man, cooking meals for the house (the main one, in which i live), and also the office (practically the whole of it -- since we no longer have a receptionist and i am the ONLY administrative assistant).  but goodness, i have limits.

I would be lucky to see friends in my non-existent copious free time.  But i'm not.

I would really appreciate a break. 
I would also appreciate it if there was a place I could go where I would NOT have to worry about or take care of other people. 

I am this close to throwing myself a pity party.  And those are never fun.

Just shoot me.  Would make things a hell of a lot easier.

Subject:Breakthrough
Time:10:39 am.
Mood: distracted. perennially..
I made one last Saturday afternoon.

Andy at lunch, "Did your boobs get bigger?" while staring at me in my apple green, sleeveless top.
"Huh? I dunno. Not sure."

A few hours later, after looking at myself in the bathroom mirror, "OMG! My boobs do look bigger! They are bigger! Oh, no! I gained weight."

Jam, "Yeah! You're FAT!"
Moment of silence.
"You're right!!! OMG! I'm FAT! Hahaha, huhuhu. ... But I don't think I'm ready to lose weight yet. I like having boobs. But maybe when I have enough self-loathing, I will return to my normal size."

These are my last days with my nice, popping out of my bra, boobs. How time flies.

*tear.

(4 porky pokes | poke the pig)

Subject:Word of the Day
Time:4:43 pm.
Mood: uh! offended..
co-pi-ous adjective
large in quantity or number; abundant; plentiful: copious amounts of food

My boss stepped into my office this morning and handed me a print-out of an email to him. An incoming foreign graduate student needs help finding a place to stay.

"If you could take care of this given your copious free time."
"Sure!"

I googled copious.

Gah.

Hey!!!! I WORK!
He just always walks in when I'm taking breaks -- doing meebo or multiply.

(poke the pig)

Subject:post family dinner since 19kopong-kopong
Time:10:39 pm.
family came over tonight.  (my first cousin, her husband, their two beautiful and charming kids, and my two uncles.  plus mom and yaya.)  i had forgotten they existed.

it just occurred to me that i have not seen family for the past six months-ish.  well ... let's just say i see them rarely really.  especially my cousins.  it's quite sad, really.  family here is shrinking since all of us have at least one sibling living abroad.  the new phenomena now, they say, is the transnational family.

i like the traditional type better.  i like just having family around period ... hang out, get to know them, watch them do stuff.  things like that.  the thing with MAKING time for family is, you see, it sometimes kills the spontaneity.  in any case, i still need a few days or even weeks to warm up to family again -- adjust to them actually being there.

in the US, at first i'd have difficulty thinking of things to say to my sister.  but after a while, we find things to share ...

i am not sure what i'm saying here, other than i miss family.  i feel i've been living so long without them that i no longer know what to do with them.

if only we could talk about more interesting things and if only i did not have the burden of trying to make conversation.

Subject:Santoku Ko
Time:1:48 pm.
Mood: excited.




My sister's boyfriend is the best in the world!  He (and my sister) are sending me my first and very own chef's knife ... a Santoku!  (The one that Rachel Ray uses.)  Frankly, I don't really care what knife it is, as long as it is Patrick-approved.  Can't wait for my sexay knife.

I have been domestic goddessing of late and it will be my pleasure to feed all of you, if only you pay for the grocery.  I'm poor.  My money has been going to baking goods and kitchen tools.

(7 porky pokes | poke the pig)

Subject:blahblahblah + pray for me please
Time:11:25 pm.
Mood: eeeeeps.
it has been weeks since i've had any decent sleep.  i've been afraid of sleeping because it makes me feel vulnerable and not-in-control-of-anything.  being up day and night gives me the illusion that i can manage things because i am conscious.  when i am asleep you see, there is no way of controlling my dreams and emotions.  hence, all that i've repressed during the day come back to me and it is terrible.

i would love to have a dreamless sleep in the coming weeks.

i am nervous ... somewhat terrified really ... of what may happen in the days to come.  some good and some bad.

tomorrow is judgment day, in terms of family affairs.  while sunday will be crucial in terms of career and finances.  i have to play my cards right.  i know i am on the verge of something ... something big.  which, in house's terms, could save me or kill me.  differential diagnosis please.

so, though i'm not big on prayers, i am doing the equivalent: hoping, crossing my fingers, the works.  maybe tomorrow, a little rain dance.  this is big.  big break, says steppy.  and i'll be damned if i don't play my cards right.

so anyway, lj-friends, prayerful or not thou might be, please, could you please do your equivalent of praying?  andy will BELIEVE.  others may hope, others may just wish me luck.  whatever ... virtual hugs and holding of my hand is in order.  i really need the encouragement.

let's just say that personal things are on the rocks, so my only chance at redemption is that job.  i need to redirect my attention to something worthwhile.

ok, yun lang.  thanks for reading up to this point if you did.

Time:9:53 am.
i am so excited.  i am going to miss one (the first ... which seems soooo good pa naman, radioactive sago PLUS it's a scary film?  winner).  but i fully intend to catch all the remaining ones, even if that means disturbing, yet again, my jobhunt momentum.

to all film enthusiasts, or to those who have never watched a silent film in their life, go to http://www.goethe.de/ins/ph/map/de607237.htm for the schedule!

(poke the pig)

Subject:cabin fever
Time:10:08 am.
i have not been out of the house in four straight days.  and i am feeling it again -- the sadness.

i was afraid to sleep last night, not knowing what i would wake up to the next morning.  and when i slept, i had nightmares of getting a pittance for salary.

i wish it would stop raining/drizzling already.  too much grey sky is getting depressing.
