cool off and eventually break up

by riclags In reply to mental noise

<div xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<p>I have to deviate from this love affair. I have been at it for too long that I cannot recall when I started it. Through all those years, I have been with others too. Most of them were known. Some friends also had some kind of affair with them one way or another.</p>

<p>I must find a way to break loose. I know I will feel better about myself and my life once I do. The more I continue with the affair, the more I know I will endanger myself and others around me.</p>

<p>Yes. I must end this love affair with...SMOKING.</p>

<em>ber</em> days

by riclags In reply to mental noise

<div xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<img alt="christmas_tree_small.jpg" border="0" src="http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/5047/874/320/christmas_tree_small.jpg" style="float:left; MARGIN: 0px 10px 10px 0px;" />
<p>The <em>ber</em> days have officially started. In case you have no idea what the **** I'm talking about, let me enlighten you. Here in the Philippines, once the date Semptember 1 hits the calendars, it officially marks the beginning of the Christmas season. September, October, November, December - thus the <em>ber</em> days.</p>

<p>Soon I'll start hearing Christmas carols and jingles being played in the local radio stations. Stores will be displaying overpriced Christmas wares all over their shelves. One thing's for sure though, I'd have to start saving money so I could give out gifts to those who deserve them come Christmas eve.</p>

<p>Still, I'm very disappointed at how distorted the meaning of Christmas has become through the years. It has lost it's true meaning. Kids nowadays are yelling for Santa Claus and getting gifts. Who the **** is Santa Claus? Let us remember that Christmas is the day our Savior was born into this world. Maybe it's high time we give Him all the credit for Christmas and not some obese, white bearded, flying-reindeer-rider guy.</p>

<p>Merry Christmas y'all!</p>

27

by riclags In reply to mental noise

<p>No, the number in the title isn't my age. Nor is it the number of blog posts I have amassed. Read on.

<blockquote>Weary with toil, I haste me to my bed,<br>
The dear repose for limbs with travel tired;<br>
But then begins a journey in my head,<br>
To work my mind, when body's work's expired:<br>
For then my thoughts, from far where I abide,<br>
Intend a zealous pilgrimage to thee,<br>
And keep my drooping eyelids open wide,<br>
Looking on darkness which the blind do see<br>
Save that my soul's imaginary sight<br>
Presents thy shadow to my sightless view,<br>
Which, like a jewel hung in ghastly night,<br>
Makes black night beauteous and her old face new.<br>
     Lo! thus, by day my limbs, by night my mind,<br>
     For thee and for myself no quiet find.</blockquote>

<p>Yes, it is my current favorite. Favorite Shakespearean sonnet that is. There are a lot more of these but Sonnet 27 is by far the only one I could understand.</p><p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://mentalnoise.blogspot.com/2005/09/27.html">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

priceless

by riclags In reply to mental noise

<img style="float:left; margin:0 10px 10px 0;cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;" src="http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/5047/874/320/havaianas_floral_hib_branco.jpg" border="0" alt="" />
<p>If you don't recognize the picture to the left, it's the latest craze in the Philippines today. These ordinary looking flip-flops are made by a Brazilian company called <a href="http://www.havaianas.com">Havaianas</a>. If you are truly a Filipino then you have seen (or probably owned a dozen) this type of footwear. Here in the Philippines, flip-flops are locally called <em>tsinelas</em> or slippers. You could get a decent pair of these for about Php 20 - 50 from the marketplace.</p>

<p>Okay, enough about introductions. Why I am posting this is because my girlfriend wanted to have a pair of Havaianas. Naturally, being a <em>kuripot</em> person that I am, I was against it. I reasoned out that they were too expensive and impractical since I could buy her a pair which were way cheaper. Although she didn't tell me, I knew that she was hurt because I could see it in her eyes. So, being a good and loving boyfriend that I want to be, I promised to buy her a pair. She was excited and said she'd look around for a design she liked.</p>

<p>After much window shopping around, she finally decided to get a pair with the design similar to the picture I posted above. And in fulfillment of a promise, I bought her a pair last September 06, 2005. Despite all my ramblings (<a href="http://laurganism.com/2005/08/25/the-evolution-of-the-flip-flops/#comment-37">see here</a&gt about vanity and the like, I was somehow rewarded for my deed. Not physical or sexual, but emotional. I saw her love for me glimmer in her eyes.</p>

<p>A pair of Havaianas flip-flops: Php 835.<br>
Seeing the happiness of my girlfriend in her eyes: <strong>PRICELESS!</strong></p><p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://mentalnoise.blogspot.com/2005/09/priceless_09.html">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

impromptu stuff

by riclags In reply to mental noise

<div xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
There's nothing much for me to say
Because I feel like **** today
You might ask and wonder why
Well, I feel like I want to die
Why don't I just shoot my head
I'd probably feel better dead
For I am a failure, that I know
I can't seem to let the feeling go
I've nothing more to add and say
I still feel like **** today
I gotta go, I've wasted enough time
On this stupid, fucked-up rhyme

hopefully not waiting in vain

<div xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">It's been more than a couple of months now that I have been eagerly awaiting my transfer to another department in this company I am currently working for. I just hope that it's not all in vain.

moving out...

by riclags In reply to mental noise

<div xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Due to the intermittent conditions of this blog hosting site (i.e. i keep getting the 403 Forbidden error very often), I have explored the vastness of the Internet and found a suitable place to put my blog.
