Merry New Years!

For the New Year, I don't want this jet lag feeling. I remember writing some resolutions last year, and some of them didn't turn out the way I hoped (in other words, it was exactly what I thought: they wouldn't be fulfilled). So this year, I the same:
-bring a lunch to work at least 4/5 days
-don't swear
-be nicer to those I don't like
-go to Church every week
-be a better brother
-exercise regularly
-save money
-get my motorcycle lessons
-play an instrument (buy a trumpet)
And, most a good boyfriend and person in general
Here's hoping!

And Thus Concludes...

The Great West Coast Adventure. I had a lot of fun in Vegas with Tita Helen, going Casino hopping and not sleeping so much. Believe me, I won't be doing that kind of gambling again...hoohoo. I would list down what I did on my vacation, but lately it seems like I've been lazy.
All I know is that I am happy to be back home, things are okay on all fronts, and I don't think I want to go on vacation anymore without my significant other. Well, extended vacations anyway.
Now then, laundry to do...

Off To Vegas

Last leg of the vacation, where I will gambell...

Physically. Home. From my Girlfriend.
What a great vacation.

Merry Christmas

And one I won't forget. After a week here, and after some news, I think I would much rather be with my girlfriend. Soon enough.
In shock and bewilderment. Wow.

It's A Mexican Explosion

Taco trucks, burritos, chips n' salsa...I'm in a Mexican heaven. The weather is crazy nice here (with the exception of the smog). It doesn't feel like the Christmas season to me, but hey apparently I wanted it this way. I miss being with my...nevermind. I think it's because I'm sick, but then again, nah.
I'll be going to my Kuya Don-Don's Service on Christmas Day (they don't call it Mass...they are part of an organization akin to BLD). It won't be exactly like Christmas Mass I'm used to, but I should keep an open mind.
Then on Monday I'm off to Sin City. Hey, it's all part of the oxymoron that is my faith!

And Now I'm In Long Beach

In the "'hood" but lots of fun with the family here. Taco trucks here I come...

From San Francisco...

Herrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrre's Fat Bastard! So far during my trip, I can confidentely say that I have not gone hungry at all. In fact, the gluttony I am experiencing is not for the faint of heart (except mine).
-got here, and went to In 'N Out the first night. Good burgers.
-next day, went to Serramonte Mall, which I haven't been to in 9 years. Happy and Freddie had a party, and I had oysters. Good stuff.
-next day, went more shopping and touring around downtown San Francisco. And had a super burrito. Frikin' good stuff. I wish they had restaurants like that back home. Then again, maybe not.
-today, had Ihop, Jack in the Box, and The Stinking Rose, an all-garlic restaurant. Damn. I love garlic.
Tomorrow? Who knows, but I think a salad would be good.
I'm off to Long Beach in a couple of days, a Greyhound overnight. Then a taxicab to Kuya Don-Don's house. Hope I don't get shot!
To my Dearest Girlfriend, please don't be worried about me. I am okay during my bachelor trip. I love you and I miss you!

Gone Tomorrow

Or rather, much later today. And just my luck there is a snowstorm. Hopefully my flight won't be cancelled/delayed too long. I hope I'm not hyping this trip up too much, but I'm sure I'll have fun.
I love you baby!

So Close

Wow, time is really flying. And in a couple of days, I'll be doing just that.
Only thing that would make the trip perfect is if my girlfriend were with me. Awwwww....barf. I'll just look at it as my "bachelor trip." Begas vavy, Begas!

Habby Burday Kambals

Welcome to my age.
Picked up my woodworking project today. I personally think it looks nice. And hey, it will eventually be in my house!

Sarnia: The Tiger, The Warlock, and The Cupboard

Sharon asked me if there was a sequel. That was my response.
Pretty good movie, almost like Jumanji meets The Nutty Professor meets LOTR.
* * *
I think I'm finally done Christmas shopping. And I got back a re-re-gift (iPod Shuffle).

Poker Night

With the workmates. Should be interesting.

Billy Jayl

Watched Movin' Out with Sharon at the Canon Theatre. If there was ever to be a show that used dance interpretation as a means of narration, this would be it. I thought it was good, but then again I seem to love any live theatre.
"I love you just the way you are..."

Last Day With Wood

I would be sentimental, but it's all good: it's all done! Just gotta stain it.

Feeling Cold

Like a pirate that shivers his timbers. Brrrrrrr matey.
Started early for work today. Somedays you have to show dedication. Today was one of those days.
I really think the lack of sun is making me fatiguey. SADD go away.

Work Hard...

...vacation harder. Been working like ka-ray-zee so I can look like I care before I leave.
Tomorrow I gotta leave my house by 6:00AM for a HACCP. At least it's in keeping with the whole "I care about my job" attitude.
Just watched parts of LOTR2. Memorable quote: "A WIZARD SHOULD KNOW BETTER!" Made me laugh for some reason.

If It's The Most Wonderful Time...

...of the year, why do I get so stressed out every time? Maybe it's the Christmas shopping, maybe it's the vastly commercialized society I live in, maybe I'm just thinking too much. I dunno, but damn I can't wait to go on vacation.
* * *
Watched "Rent" last night. 525600 minutes...a good song, but the movie felt that long too. I think an otherwise good movie was ruined from images in my head of certain people in high school who wouldn't shut up about the play. That and I don't particularly care about those people.

Man, I had one of those flashbacks where I saw my ex-girlfriend in the mall. Then I freaked out. But not a major freakout, I just put my head down and walked the other way to find Arvin. How old am I again?
I burnt my mouth last night from Liz's hors d'ouvers. It hurts.
Two weeks from now I'll be in California.

Christmas Thunder

Apparently that's what Arvin and Nina called Liz's party. I had fun. I even drank wine. I feel warm.

If I Didn't Score 9 Points... team would've lost by 24. Can't believe I actually scored more than 2 points this game. All of a sudden I feel like I should be playing in the NBA. Damn.
