Weezer, baby!
I'm a lot like you, so please, hello, I'm here, I'm waiting. I think I'd be good for you and you'd be good for me.
For all you know, you want me too. Or maybe you just don't know what to do. Maybe you're scared to say that you love me too.
Stupid is it, I can't talk about it. I got to sing about it and make a record of my heart.
They're playing Weezer on the radio. Man, I haven't heard this song in a long while. Reminds me of my college stalking days.

Our word for today is fuckwit. This word, according to a website I've gone to, is of Australian origin. However, it caught on in Britain around the 1970s. I first read this word in Bridget Jones Diary in 2001. And I've seen it on several pieces of Brit Lit since then.
Who really is a fuckwit? They claim to know. It's not such a big mystery though. Just look around. My wild guess is about 80% of the world's population partake of the nature of fuckwits.
And I'm not one of them.

You're kidding me! Just goes to show that you must not believe everything you read. Me, a Cheer Bear? Watch as every one of my friends snicker.




Cheer Bear
You're the Care Bear cheerleader! Your spunky personality and optimisim lifts everyone's spirit. Though you want everyone to be happy, you stand your ground on issues you feel strongly about and this can bring disunity among your friends. Despite this, you are a true believer in working together.







Like text? If you have a mobile phone and you use it to send SMS messages to anyone, here's a site where you can do the same for free. The person you send it to will receive the messages on their mobile phone.
And the service is free, by the way.

Unrequited love theme. This song is by a UK band called Cinerama. I've loved them forever and yet I've only been blessed with being able to listen to just one album (Va va voom). Here are the lyrics to a cut from the album. I just love this song. Substitute the pronouns from she to he and you've got my life story.

Dance, Girl, Dance
I thought that we could just lie here,
but yes I know how you love dancing in that dress
And yes, I love to watch
You soothe away my troubles
But now slide those freshly shaven legs into
The clean cold sheets I've put on just for you
With every single touch
My love for you just doubles
But of course none of this has happened at all, yet
We've not even spoken, but I'll bet
Once you're through my door
You'll want to stay for ever more
Because I will hold you so tight, I'll make you see how
You are the right woman for me now
Just give me a glance
To show me that I've got a chance
All this cavorting is designed to tease
And girl your dancing drives me wild so please
Do it one more time
But make it last forever
Oh how come none of this has happened at all, yet
We've not even spoken, but I'll bet
Once you're through my door
You'll want to stay for ever more
Because I will hold you so tight, I'll make you see how
You are the right woman for me now
Just give me a glance
To show me that I've got a chance
Oh dance, girl, dance
None of this has happened at all, yet
We've not even spoken, but I'll bet
Once you through my door
You'll want to stay for ever more
Because I will hold you so tight, I'll make you see how
You are the right woman for me now
Just give me a glance
To show me that I've got a chance




Looking for pirates. I almost went crazy this weekend. As you know by now, I went to my first class on Friday. We were assigned to read about 20 cases and asked to prepare digests for each of the cases. I still didn;t have about a third of the assigned cases so I planned to go to the library on Saturday. Unfortunately, the library was closed for the rest of the weekend. The voice on the phone said that the library would only be open on weekends starting the fourth week of June. What was I to do?
Around this time, I realized the importance of having my own copy of Lex Libris. The Lex Libris cd contains Philippine jurisprudence dating back to 1901. Having my own copy would mean that I wouldn't be subjected to the whims of the library staff. I would be free to get as many cases as I needed on my own time, at my own pace. Plus, it would save me precious time better devoted to reading the cases, instead of waiting around for the photocopier to reproduce copies for you.
Being the reformed citizen that I am, a model of exemplary behavior to young adults my age, I resolved to buy the cd from the original disrtributor. Where the resolve of other students have succumbed to the wiles of software pirates, I was determined to stand tall and proud (of my original copy). I went to the website and got the telephone number that you were supposed to call for inquiries.
I almost had a heart attack. Apparently, while the road to hell is paved with good intentions, the road to heaven is littered with potholes of greed.
The bastards! One cd will cause you damage amounting to P35,000. Yes, you read it right. It costs THIRTY-FIVE THOUSAND PESOS. It costs almost double what a complete package of the Adobe Publishing Software will cost you.
I wasn't that easily deterred, however. I asked the voice on the phone if they gave discounts to students. After all, it's not like I'm going to make money off the cd sometime in the near future. Well, she said that they actually gave 20% discounts to students. Thay also offer it on instalment basis: payable within six months without interest.
Are you kidding?
WHERE WOULD I GET TWENTY-EIGHT THOUSAND PESOS?
So now I'm looking for pirates.
