hmm, i realize i am confining myself to luzon... saka dun lang sa part na iyon sa luzon, sa may kaliwa ng mapa. although i've been sa may gitnang part, pero siyempre concentrated sa negros area kasi been there several times, and then one dot to reveal i've been in davao...teka asan ang cebu? napadpad na rin ako dun e...hmmm...kakaiba no?

okay itong chorva na to a. kay starshuffler ko nakuha hehe. try niyo rin.

obviously naboborlogs na naman utak ko. i just came from a 3.5 hour meeting kaya i still can't find the energy to leave the office. buti na lang at may internet pa kaya here we are...

yea you guessed it, revaluation committee meeting anew. natatawa lang ako sa mga ka-meeting ko kasi obviously, tired na rin kami lahat. either nagpaaptawa na kaming lahat sa kagagahang makakaharap namin sa cluster committee or nagne-nervous eating kami sabi nga ni mam anne dahil hindi kami naka-order ng pagkaing gusto namin talaga kaya lang wala nang pera sa admin chaka... so binge kami sa msg in foil packs, also known as chichirya, and some chaka food from the cmc canteen. and drinks. man, i want steak.

pero biggest reklamador pala ay si madam journ na medyo nag-OC mode kasi doon kami sa newsroom nila nag-meeting at no eating daw pala doon ever hehe. i guess unlike sa film na we can bend some rules a little as long as we clean up after ourselves and all, medyo tensed ang lola. kaya linis mode herself ang lola after ng meeting. well, such is life, di ba? wala lang, OC lang sya sobra hehe naaaliw ako. obvious kasing di siya mapakali during the meet hehe. pero syempre, makukuwestyon ba niya ang the rest of the peeps, na kung di luminary in their own right like sir nic tiongson e mga chairs of depts? so yun nah...

speaking of sir nic, it takes another geek, a film geek at that, to make this comment to another film geek like me "wow, new hair...and new glasses..." he said that when he first saw my new haircut and it was incidental that i had new eyeglasses made around that time, too. hehehe naaliw ako sa comment "new glasses" geek mode! hehe i heart geeks.

at dahil sa aking hair katay mode ay madaming di nakakilala sa akin nung umpisa at even up to now. like i think direk maryo j took 10 handshakes to recognize me. as in, hindi niya binibitawan ang kamay ko when we saw each other sa investiture rites ni mam gigi alfonso last saturday sa bernal gallery. hahaha natatawa ko just thinking about it... same with sir tikoy aguiluz who took like 6 squints at me and two explanations from tita lalli during the french film festival opening sa shang until his face read "aaah, si libay!" even martin from the french embassy treated me differently. kasi hindi na ko pa-girl noh. as in, total paradigm shift ang looks ko because of the hair. hm, nalalaki yata ang lolo sa akin hahahaha. saka kasi may kasama kong date na girl, kaya double whammy siya hahaha. la lang... some pipol...

in short, nagmukha akong soft butch instead of femme. hahahaaha.

pero on the other hand, natatawa naman ako sa mga sumusubok "umamoy" sa akin dahil dito. like there was this one student from miriam college na applicant for transferee sa film. after i interviewed her, we had this conversation:

her: mam, sa marikina kayo nag-aral ng high school?
me: uh...oo (thought balloon: pano niya nalaman?)
her: (looking so sure of it) ah...sa st. scho?
me: uh, no. sa infant jesus...
her: ah... (starts to walk away)
me: bakit, ikaw, st. scho?
her: (with a smile) yes.
me: ... (thought balloon: hmmm)

do i have a st. scho vibe, man? ewan ko lang. kia?

o dahil nga sa siguro tibamers siya at di lang niya matanong directly na "mam, magic ka ba?" or "mam, magic ka rin ba?" or whatever term her generation uses these days.

ay, oo nga pala, for the uninitiated, the manila exclusive high school girls use this term "magic" to refer to girls who magically turn from girly uniformed high schoolers into butchy-looking lesbians outside school. hence, magic.

sabi nga pala ng stars sa akin today--as usual swak na naman:

Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)

You just can't see yourself clearly enough now. Your role in the world is muddled, too, for it can be based more on your ideal than it is on the actual reality of your life. Try not to lose track of the truth. Give yourself permission to do a bit of dreaming so you can incorporate parts of your fantasy into your life.



devah.

  1. Never thought you had a St. Scho vibe, mamu. If you asked me siguro I would say more of UPIS vibe pa siguro. Is that an insult or a compliment. Kaw na bahala. I sure hope I don't have a St. Scho vibe, whatever that means. O thanks for the etymology of "magic," I've been wondering about that forever!
