can i just vent for a second?

so i went out to the store to rent me some tagalog movies. it's thursday night and i felt like crying so the hubby and i went and got the movie i wanted. it was 7.30 when we did that. at my hubby's request, i delayed my date with regine velasquez and piolo pascual in Paano Kita Iibigin and moved it t 9.30 after he's played some games on his system.

so what happens? it's 9.30 and i don't have a movie. it turns out that the store gave me the wrong cd's and i was able to get one of the Pacquiao fights.

in a scale of 1-10... this exceed it. this is my total grrr moment.

and so it ends *no spoilers, i promise*

can i just say, that though i am no longer that big a fan of harry potter...


to the point where i laughed, cried and screamed FUDGE over and over again starting from chapter 36. [edit: make that chapter 34]

that ending just made it totally worth my sleepless nights.

bravo, J.K. Rowling, for i was at the edge of my seat, gripping your novel to the extent that on some parts, i wanted to hurl it across the room because i just couldn't take the suspense any longer.

ps. now i'm sad it's actually over

ride the wave

say a little prayer

a girlfriend of mine, and a much avid reader of this blog *who will remain nameless* has been going through some boy trauma lately. you see, she recently lost one whom she gave her heart to, and gained one who, at first, gave her the impression that he wanted to be with her, yet, has simply dropped off the face of this planet.

what a dufus. as per our most recent conversations.... pakshetangina talaga siya. (thanks for teaching me that new word!)

so to my girlfriend, don't swear off men just yet. have a little more patience. and while waiting for this mutual friend of ours to get his mind in the right direction, say a little prayer that goes like this:

Dear Lord,
I pray for wisdom to understand this man;
Love to forgive him for his current shortcomings;

And patience for his sudden lack of communication with me;
Because Lord, if I pray for strength, I'll go after him and beat
him to his senses until he realizes that he's held me up and kept me

i'm sore but brave, uber brave....

as a team-building/summer party event for work, the social committee decided to take us on a white water rafting adventure. the two hour bus ride up to squamish as well as another 40 minutes to get up the river was well-worth the downhill rafting adventure offered to us by the guides who took us against the waves. actually, the fact that i am sore, hurting & feeling bruised (given to the fact that i almost fell off in the river) does not really matter as the experience of it all was uber fantastic!

so now you ask, why brave?

WET SUIT. is that enough of a description? i swear, every bulge in my body seemed to have been magnified by the time i put on the jumpsuit. even worse, the jacket i was given to wear must have been a least 3 sizes smaller than me, hence, i look like the michellin tire mascot! the only thing i can't think of is: thank god there was no full length mirror in the bathroom! i swear, if i ever saw my actual self in the lovely jumpsuit with it's matching booties, i would have said GET ME OUT OF HERE and never would have gone white water rafting!

the rafting is another totally different topic. it was outrageously fun! i loved it... loved it so much that i think it's worth going at least twice a month and spending all that money just to be able to get back in the water and do it all over again! mind you, i almost fell in twice in the rapid section of the river as well as braved 5 foot tides. i was soaked to the skin with three degrees cold water, part of a glacier that melted 8 hours before our adventure, but totally had a blast.

the question now is... anyone want to come with me next time? ---> this is where i'm going back to!

ps. i need a massage.... anyone?
