wearing the colors of christmas

i haven't had a me time in ages so this weekend, i made sure i had one.

the outcome, i am now wearing the colors of christmas. in summer.

i've gone from blonde to copper red to a full blown redhead! love love love my hair now. i got so obsessed with Kate Blanchet's hair in Benjamin Button that i immediately ask my stylist to change my hair color last Feb. but, his first attempt at transforming me into a redhead sorta fell short of my expectations.

yesterday, however, he pulled through. i've never loved my hair this much haha! i know, i sound so narcisist. can't help it! my hair is fierce! and i mean Tyra-ANTM-fierce ya hear?! (will post a photo soon see photo insets)

as for the other color of christmas, deeaye and i got a lil crazy over our nails. she got hers painted mango yellow while i had mine in lime green.

so there. i'm Christmassing in what probably is the hottest summer ever.

funny tuesday morning

my day started funny today. i woke up fuming mad over some girl who stole my man. i knew it was just a dream but i found myself pouting in utmost frustration because i can't put a face on who that stupid bitch was!

i wanted to blog about my latest conversation with D

but i didn't have any time. so now the moment has passed. the excitement over what was probably one of the most interesting conversations i've had with D has waned.

too bad. maybe next time.

Love and Other Disasters

a surprisingly nice film. it's a story about love and all the crazy happy ridiculous things that come along with it.

the movie revolved around Jacks (played by Brittany Murphy) and her crazy friends both gay and straight.

here are some lines which i thought are worth quoting:

Emily 'Jacks' Jackson: "I'm not so sure. Love isn't always a lightning bolt, you know? Maybe sometimes it's just a choice."

"I don't know that Paolo's the love of my life, but I've decided to give him the chance to be. Maybe true love is a decision. You know, a decision to take a chance with somebody. To give to somebody. Without worrying wether they'll give anything back. Or if they're gonna hurt you, or if they really are the one. Maybe love isn't something that happens to you. Maybe it's something you have to choose."

o0o o0o o0o

Therapist: "The stages of a relationship can be defined by farting.

Stage one is the conspiracy of silence. This is a fantasy period where both parties pretend that they have no bodily waste. This illusion is very quickly shattered by that first shy, "Ooh, did you fart," followed by the sheepish admission of truth. This heralds a period of deeper intimacy.

A period I like to call the "Fart Honeymoon", where both parties find each other's gas just the cutest thing in the world.

But, of course, no honeymoon can last forever. And so we reach the critical fork in the fart. Either the fart loses its power to amuse and embarrass thereby signifying true love, or else it begins to annoy and disgust, thereby symbolizing all that is blocked and rancid in the formerly beloved."

what's in a name

when i was born, i had dimples on both cheeks. naturally, my parents saw it fit to call me that.

now, 33 years later, i'm still wondering where they went :D

American Idol 8 : Michael Jackson Night

Lil Rounds opened up the show with "The Way You Make Me Feel". while the judges loved it, i didn't. well, it was ok. just ok.

next was Scott MacIntyre who sang a not so popular MJ song, "Keep the Faith". the song may not have made it to the top charts but i loved Scott's performance nonetheless. there's something about the way he sings that makes you wanna listen to what he says.

going third was the ever so popular, totally pimped out AI contestant, Danny Gokey. he sang "PYT (Pretty Young Thing)" which is something i have never heard before but as always, Danny delivered.

Michael Sarver came next with his version of "You Are Not Alone". it was surprisingly good. his vocals were the best it has been since the first time i saw him. good job.

and then came Jasmine Murray with "I'll Be There". b-o-r-i-n-g! i think she'll be at the bottom 3.

Kris Allen sang next with his take on "Remember the Time". i have to admit, i was suprised that he made it to the top 13. tonight, however, made me rethink. he's good with his guitar. and contrary to what Simon said about bringing out the wife early in the competition, i think girls will still go gaga over him.

singing "Give in To Me", Allison Iraheta proved to be a powerhouse but i think she was way better when she did "Alone"

Anoop Desai, though uber energetic, didn't do justice to "Beat IT". that being said, however, i don't think he'll be in the bottom 3.

"Never Can Say Goodbye" proved to be a song too big for Jorge Nunez as he struggled with it the entire time. that could very well bring him to the bottom 3.

next is the uber adorable, i-want-to-pinch-her-cheeks, Megan Corkery singing an upbeat "Rockin Robin". i just love watching her perform. she's different, a breath of fresh air in a sea of over the top performers. i don't care what the judges said, i love her!

and then there's Adam Lambert with his version of "Black or White". fine, he nailed it. but i still think he oversings.

next is Michael Buble look alike Matt Giraud who sang "Human Nature". he doesn't just look like the popular crooner, he sounds a bit like him too. that and former AI contestant, Eliot Yamin which makes me like him too.

closing the show was Alexis Grace with "Dirty Diana". nothing really great about it. still, i know she will be safe tomorrow.

all in all, it was an OK night. nothing mindblowing uber memorable performance. hopefully, that changes next week.

*** complete performances can be viewed on ***


update as of 03/12/09

Jasmine and Jorge were sent home. my predictions were spot-on!

so long, FrancisM

i was browsing through my usual blog faves tonight and noticed that the normally angsty, funny, fab and witty ones didn't have their usual tone.

Francis Magalona is dead. and everyone who knew who he was felt the loss.

and then i realized, i too, am sad. the master rapper is gone and no one can ever replace him.

my prayers go to him and the family he left behind.

so long FrancisM. you will be missed.

teeny bopper mode

i am totally crushing on someone.

you know the one that you have in highschool? the kind when just seeing him totally makes your day? the kind that makes your knees wobble when he smiles at you?

that kind. i have it. i have one. at work.

 it does feel nice. so i'm saying it again. i am totally crushing on someone. la la la!

now every morning, i give myself ten extra minutes to put on a lil blush and dab a bit of gloss coz ill never know when the universe will turn in my favor and let me get stuck in the elevator with him. hahahaha! it's high school all over again and i can't help but smile.
