Moleskine 2012 Planner Giveaway

My friends and I have this thing about notebooks. I mean, we have this interest in notebooks that aside from the fact that we actually use the notebooks, we also have them lined up in a nice row where we can admire the sheer beauty of the notebooks. No kidding.

A notebook collection!

Anyway, Avalon.ph is hosting the Moleskine 2012 Planner Giveaway, where you can get a chance to win your own 2012 Moleskine Planner and all its gorgeous beauty! You can follow the mechanics specified at the page and just post the progress or what you did at the bottom. You can do at least one of the specified things to do, or you can do them all. Remember, it is a raffle/giveaway. Good luck!

For this contest, participants have to answer this question either in the comments section of the giveaway page or in their blogs. I chose to do both. The question is:

What are you thankful for this year 2011?

My answer:

There are a lot of things that I am thankful for 2011. I am thankful that I am alive, and that the good Lord has given me and my family the gift of good health. I am also thankful for all the blessings this year as God does provide especially in times of need. I am thankful for kind friends and kind people, as well as people who do care about the world and others. Lastly, I am thankful that I was/am able to live a full 2011, and that the promise of a fruitful 2012 is at my grasp.

Pebbles, Miss Feyoh, and my mom always tell me that it is always important to be thankful for the blessings that you have. And it is true, you should be thankful not just for one year as a whole, but for every day that is spent.

Slainte!

Your Evil Plan

Have you ever thought you were a supervillain? I have. I often dream that I am a superhero as well, with some villain tendencies. Say, the reluctant hero or something.. LOL

Anyway, my friends Peanut and Feyoh had a bit of fun via this website called DarkSites.com which has this Evil Guide Plan. I pray that you are even a little bit open minded and just don’t call exorcists or something because I don’t know, perhaps you might like it as well.

I believe there are two kinds of people in this world: superheroes and (super)villains. Still, it doesn’t really matter which kind of person you are, as long as you are a person and you are reading this blog post, then I am cool with that.

Below is what I got out of the generator. I am positively tickled! Have fun!

Congratulations on being the creator of a new Evil Plan ™!
Your objective is simple: destroy the earth.
Your motive is a little bit more complex: evil – it’s my nature

Stage One
To begin your plan, you must first incinerate a Superman. This will cause the world to sense a grave disturbance in the force, horrified by your arrival. Who is this Demon Straight Out of Hell? Where did they come from? And why do they look so good in a Supervillain Costume with Gimmicks?

Stage Two
Next, you must obliterate the Moon (ooh, tides!). This will all be done from a underground secret headquarters of doom, a mysterious place of unrivaled dark glory. Upon seeing this, the world will leap from the nearest window, as countless hordes of winged monkeys hasten to do your every bidding.

Stage Three
Finally, you must unleash your opening of the seven seals, bringing about an Unending Cacaphony of Screams. Your name shall become synonymous with fuzzy bunnies, and no man will ever again dare roll his or her eyes. Everyone will bow before your Mind-Boggling Insanity, and the world will have no choice but to make you their god.

 

 

 

 

Pinky: Gee, Brain, what do you want to do tonight?
Brain: The same thing we do every night, Pinky – try to take over the world!

Of long days and typewriters

It has been a long day for me today. It started with a frenetic pace when I woke up just 45 minutes before the PTA conference of sorts started. Since the school gym was located at the other side of town, I knew I had to beat time and traffic. Unfortunately, somebody else was already hogging the bathroom.

Since I am not one who is comfortable prancing about before taking a bath, I waited for a good 10 minutes before the person finally exited the bathroom. All went into a blur, and as far as I am concerned, I remember being dressed eventually, and with 10 minutes to go, I started the motorcycle and pretty much flew across town.

Thank God I did not run into any vehicular accidents. Otherwise, that would have made my day a little bit more interesting.

The meeting went well. Same words or so as last year. But at least I showed up. I already did some injustice to my daughter when she was excluded from the dance the kids performed because apparently her school shoes are not the right ones. Meh.

Good thing about today was that I accomplished much. After the meeting, I stopped by Steds, a local convenience store, to buy bread and some milk for the kids. I got some food for myself, too. When I got home, I gave the kids a bath, cooked lunch, then sat down to work. I finished work in 3 hours, which felt quite good, if I may say so.

After working, the four of us rode around town just for fun. This is a really good substitute for going soemwhere especially if you have less than 500 pesos in your pocket. We stopped by The Boulevard and just let the kids run around… it was a good two hours.

Everything went blurry again after that… all I know is that I managed to cook dinner, eat dinner, and now here I am rambling away because I need to unload.

Honestly? My back hurts, my fingers hurt so much… but I type nonetheless. Because in typing – like I did when I used my grandfather’s trusty typewriter – I learned that I can lose myself through writing. I may not be the best at it, but I know that it is what I want to do.

And now, I want to put let my hands rest for a while.

Inday Goes To The Big City: Day 1

Yesterday was day one, but after that long day, I was knocked out last night, as early as 9 pm-ish!!

Anyway, it has been 6 years since I boarded a plane and flew out of my mountains. Enough for total ignorance to set in! Enough for a certain country girl to check out what the city looks like after all that time.

With a flight schedule from Dumaguete leaving at 8:45 am, somebody woke up at 4:30 am and was already dressed to go by 5:30 am! LOL since the airport is approximately 20 minutes away, I was definitely early. I blame it on the fact that I barely slept that night. Nerves.

When the plane taxied along the strip, my nerves hummed with anticipation that I wasn’t really able to take a lot of shots!

While I was seated at the very last row of the plane, I was sadly not seated by the window. Though I was able to see the white fluffy clouds once the plane was off the ground, I could not fully enjoy it because I was seated next to some dude who snored all the way through the trip.

After the plane landed in NAIA, I was not able to observe everything because my companions moved at the speed of light. I wished we were slower so I could take in the feel of the airport! LOL think: The Terminal. Besides, the van that was supposed to pick us up arrived almost an hour after we went out to Bay 9.

Off we went then to our hotel in Makati, and since I was with some big wigs, I was not able to shoot around cause I was just trying to appear cool. LOL

Ahhh the hotel. The biggest perk so far. Its not really THAT posh… Okay, maybe it is posh, and I have enjoyed one of the best night’s rest in this hotel yet. The view is okay… And I will make another review when I get back.

Yesterday was a loooong day. And I hope it gets better today! I also hope we can actually get out of the hotel and take a look around the city… Or wherever.

That’s all for now. Updates and pictures later!!!

Cheers!

Tangled up in giggles

Finally, after more than a week of not watching movies or ANYTHING at all on my laptop or on TV, I got around to watching Tangled (2010 film) and was, as per subject, “tangled up in giggles.”

I have not done a movie review for quite sometime because I do have a streak for procrastinating, but I do want to enumerate the parts, points, lines, and all that jazz which caught my heart throughout watching Tangled.

The movie itself

I love the screenplay of the film, although I do not think animated features have screenplays, but I do love this one. The cuts, jumps, cinematography of it is breathtaking, I just want to watch it again and again.

The colors of the film are gorgeous. Like a painting or watercolor with so much life was just so “feel good” for me. I loved it.

I’ve got to pat the writers on the back for this one because the lines were just so funny, witty, sassy, and spunky. Just my kind of movie.

Soundtrack

I… well, I do love musicals but I was not exactly that impressed with the music. *shrugs*

It was not really catchy for me. It is not like those older Disney animated films whose soundtracks really, really, really, really… you know, hit it. Beauty and the Beast had, well, Beauty and the Beast theme song, while The Lion King had “Can You Feel the Love Tonight?”, “Hakuna Matata”, and that intro theme. On the other hand Snow White had “Whistle While You Work”, “Hi Ho”, etc. Aladdin had “A Whole New World,” well, you get my drift.

But Tangled did not really have that juice in it. At least for me. Maybe I need to watch it again or somethin. To be honest, I wanted to skip past the parts where they sang – except the part in the pub. Drhrhrhrhr… gotta love ruffians and hooligans.

Tangled characters

Rapunzel – The girl’s got spunk, spirit, and those huge eyes! Love her hair, the details on the dress, the glow, the innocence, the wit, and again, the spunk. She was so much fun! Her hair was amazing!! Makes me want to go back to brushing my hair 100 times a night again. Maybe I can use it as a rope and whip as well!

Flynn Rider – Oooh la la. Damn this guy is hot! He is also funny, but not exactly THAT charismatic, but he is soooo funny. Did I just say funny again? So hot, too. LOL And I have to hand it to the animators who were able to grab the emotion and display the love, admiration, and pretty much all emotions on Flynn’s (Eugene’s) eyes. Heeehee.. yeah, I’m still drooling. Excuse me.

Pascal – Whoohoo! I LOVE Pascal! This chameleon has somewhat managed to inject huge doses of humor, emotion, and expression even without a single line. Again, props to the animators. He is so cute!

Maximus – Teehee… I like Maximus, I really, really do. He’s my kind of horse! Totally badass with that soft side. The part where he shredded the WANTED sign was so funny, and when he parted those thugs. Dude! That was suh-weet!

The Cast Iron Skillet – YOU HAVE GOT TO GIVE PROPS TO THE PAN! I never knew a weapon that could be so awesome as a cast iron skillet. I definitely want one! Excalibur was definitely cool, yo, but the cast iron skillet? Classic! Look, skillets/pans have been used as weapons in more times than one, but NEVER have I seen it achieve much attention as the cast iron skillets in this movie. It’s just awesome.

Overall

Now I know I have nothing but praise for this movie. If you got bored, sorry. But see, it was a really wonderfully made film by Disney, solidifying that they are not exactly going anywhere soon.

I did have some questions though. Like how exactly did they miss a soliditary tower in the nearby forest. OR how long did the magic of the hair last because Gothel seemed to need it a lot. And honestly, didn’t they just marcot it? And why did the queen have to have all of it? Couldn’t it be shared?

Many people also wondered why the queen did not have any more children. I think it’s coz they were scared that she would fall ill like the time she was pregnant with Rapunzel. At any rate, I think this is the best take on the Rapunzel story. I do love the original story, where the prince gets blinded and Rapunzel got pregnant. LOL BUT I like the hooligans part. It’s like Rapunzel meets Robin Hood, but the lady is not so much “in distress” and is not that dumb. Yay! Oh and I do like Rapunzel brunette and not blonde for no reason that she is drawn better brunette. She’s not the typical beautiful princess, no?

Somebody should really get me a cast iron skillet, and fast. I think its one of those things that I should add to my artillery. At any rate, I recommend folks who want a good laugh to watch the movie. 😉 Cheers.

Looking ahead at 2010 – I mean, 11!

“I can’t read clearly! Read it! Read it! Read it!”

“Where are your glasses?”

“How should I know? I called them, they didn’t answer. Read it!”

“Which one?”

“That one! Recent DailyPost topic of the day.”

“This one?”

“I think so… does it say anything about having 60 minutes to live?”

“No.”

“Well? What does it say?!”

“Oh. Topic for today is, ‘What are you looking forward to this year?'”

“Oh…”

“What?”

“I’m composing an entry in my mind.”

“Wow. Quick thinking.”

*silence*

“So…? What do you look forward to this year?”

*silence*

“So…?”

“…quick harping. I’m composing my entry…”

“Quit thinking and share.”

“Oh nothing much. Just more love, more smiles, my first tattoo, loads of cash, loads of bills, more opportunities, more chocolates… and…”

“… and??”

“More time in bed.” *bats eyelashes*

An hour to live

Well that seems bleak.

What would you do if you had an hour to live?

I honestly wish I could say I would have sex with my King but that sounds too selfish. I do not want to bawl my eyes out either, because that might be traumatic for my kids. I’ve got two, in case I forgot to mention that.

Now if I had an hour to live, I guess I would divide it into parts.

a) Write blog post – this being a bonus 5 minutes to write my blog post and say what I am about to do on the last few minutes of my life.

b) I’d have a mind-blowing quickie with my King – duuuhhh! I definitely want brand him and make sure no other woman tops that experience. I guess 10-15 minutes would do?

c) I would write letters to my friends and family – maybe some last words of wisdom and thanksgiving can be inserted in this part. Since I write pretty fast and I think I would have adrenaline rush trying to squeeze everything into an hour, methinks I can do the writing in 5-10 minutes. I wont write lengthy emails, mind you.

d) Spend time with my family – ah, the sorrowful and tearful goodbye. I want to hug and kiss my kids and tell them wise words as best as I can. I want to just be with my family and nobody else! I would just have make the most of the last few minutes of my life to be thankful and cherish my family and friends.

That would be it, yeah.

So this would supposedly be the end of my 5 minutes writing this post… which means I will (supposedly) have a quickie with my King? In… 5…4…3…2…1!
