Is it just me…

or is anyone else hopelessly sucked into Last Song Syndrome by Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance?”

Maybe it doesn’t help that I have it on single-play-repeat.

Back from the dead. Sorta.

But not really.

JohnBlaze has a funny habit of pulling me out of odd ruts; he left me a comment and got me to take some time to pop in here.

Happy anniversary.

You’ll Be Safe Here

by Rivermaya

Nobody knows
Just why we’re here
Could it be fate
Or random circumstance
At the right place
At the right time
Two roads intertwine

And if the universe conspired
To meld our lives
To make us
Fuel and fire
Then know
Where ever you will be
So too shall I be

Close your eyes
Dry your tears
‘Coz when nothing seems clear
You’ll be safe here

From the sheer weight
Of your doubts and fears
Weary heart
You’ll be safe here

Remember how we laughed
Until we cried
At the most stupid things
Like we were so high
But love was all that we were on
We belong

And though the world would
Never understand
This unlikely union
And why it still stands
Someday we will be set free.
Pray and believe

When the light disappears
And when this world’s insincere
You’ll be safe here
When nobody hears you scream
I’ll scream with you
You’ll be safe here

Save your eyes
From your tears
When everything’s unclear
You’ll be safe here

From the sheer weight
Of your doubts and fears
Wounded heart

When the light disappears
And when this world’s insincere
You’ll be safe here

When nobody hears you scream
I’ll scream with you
You’ll be safe here

In my arms
Through the long cold night
Sleep tight
You’ll be safe here

When no one understands
I’ll believe
You’ll be safe,
You’ll be safe
You’ll be safe here
Put your heart in my hands
You’ll be safe here

It would’ve been a year ago today, since I last looked up and saw nothing but blue sky and the world was mine.

Wherever you are, I miss you still. No matter what anyone says.

Happy what-would’ve-been-our anniversary, Jesse.

I enjoy being a girl.

I was going through some of my older posts, and came across one of my favorites. Just for the heck of it, I’ll re-post it here.

Such useful things, men are.

I was talking to a friend who considers herself a feminist. She’s one of those women who would get a slipped disc before she asked a man to help her carry her widescreen TV through a revolving door, harrumph, take that, male chauvinist pig! She pays her own bills, drives her own car, all that “Independent Woman” shtick.

But then, so do I.

Same old, same old.

So I poked around and found a spot on the interwebs I left bits and pieces of myself on, and it amused me to read the drivel I posted about myself a few years ago, to wit:

Deja… new?

I saw someone last night who looked so much like Amtrak_To_Hell that it completely freaked me out.

As you wish.

This disjointed, rambling post is a confusing mess of emotional vomit that only one person might understand.

So. Tired.

Spent the day grubbing around in the Museum’s satellite office and warehouse. We got rid of old furniture that was just taking up space, and cleaned the office side of the facility from top to bottom. That was the easy part.

Same time, next year.

They came, they saw, they left. Half an hour, with a thousand unanswered questions left over. I hate short tours. I hope next year there’ll be more time. 😦

The 2008 Valor Tours group, whose ETA was 2:00-2:30 p.m., arrived at the University at ten minutes to three. By the time we got everyone up the grand stairs to the Museum Gallery, it was 3:10. They had to leave at 3:30 to make it to Bilibid Prison (used during WWII as a military POW camp), and then straight to the airport.

I’ve never had to talk faster.

One question. One answer.

“Did he ever really love me?”

“If he never did, and was simply having fun messing with my head, it’s okay to say so. It’s just hard to live not knowing.”

It’s all coming back to me now. Via Meat Loaf, not Celine Dion.

Whoa. Talk about being blindsided.

I’d wondered whether it was a good idea to write that blog entry about Amtrak_To_Hell, and then yesterday I heard from his best friend, D — the person who introduced me to him. D needed help with something, and then mentioned that he’d read my blog, and told me to try to be at peace with myself. Which got me thinking. Am I?

A one way ticket on the Amtrak To Hell.

To say that I had second thoughts about writing this post is very likely the understatement of a lifetime. However, it’s been a couple of days, and a post I read by Roissy In DC refuses to leave my mind. In it, he says, among other things:

“The quintessential masculine quality women can’t resist is SUPREME UNSHAKEABLE CONFIDENCE.”

The Business Plan That Can’t Lose

Alright, so listen up.

The Philippine 6/49 Lotto jackpot stands at an insane PhP182 Million. By Sunday, it’ll probably be at 200 million pesos, because everyone will be betting, hoping to stop being poor like the other 98% of our population.

Too bad for them, because I’m gonna win.

What’s more, I already have a business plan in the works for my 200 million pesos, that will keep the money growing, and make me… meee… MEEEEEEEE wealthier than my wildest dreams! And that doesn’t include the dreams with WWE Superstar Mick Foley in them! 😀

PLUS, my business plan capitalizes on Filipino culture and its uniquely silly blend of character traits. I can’t lose.

Holeeee crap.

This is my blog. Poor neglected little thing. *hugs her blog*

I used to write here whenever I could, but life got in the way. Meh.

Since my last post here, things have changed vastly for me, and there’s just too much to go into. Suffice it to say that my life is a soap opera. An online soap opera, conducted intercontinentally, East to West Coast. Augh.

I’m happy, mostly. Mostly being the operative word here. As happy as I can get, more like. That may change, who knows? We shall see; the universe has a funny way of being contrary, and whatever comes along… you just gotta roll.

Anyhoo, I may post some of the stuff that’s trickled past a synapse or two, maybe sooner, maybe later. And yes, I can be more vague, would you like me to try?

Heading west.

I haven’t broken up badly with someone in a very long time.

It sucks ass.
