Fridays Feast # 8

It’s Friday and our servers are down again. :( I’m supposed to be writing a document that’s somekinda overdue, as well as tinkering with Flash but I’m too lazy to do the two things. Plus I have a meeting tonight so I sort of have time for that later. Yes, I’m procrastinating…ah, it’s been a long time since I wrote those words. :)

Anyway, serving up Friday’s Feast # 8!

Friday's Feast

If you were a dog, what breed would you be, and why?

I’d probably be a golden retriever. Haha, I just love that dog. :) It’s big, playful and nice, and I’ve always wanted to have that kind of dog if only I have the time to take care of it. A runner up would be a schnauzer, but it’s kind of too masculine because of that moustache. :D

What does the color purple make you think of?

My favorite color! :) It also reminds me of the Unicorns, as in the Sweet Valley Unicorns, as well. My debut, grapes, ube, my favorite bag back in high school. Partner that up with pink and it’s cute.

Approximately how long does it take you to get ready each morning?

An hour? Depends on how energetic I feel. If I’m running late, I can finish getting ready in 30 minutes. One hour is just enough for me to take a shower, get dressed, fix my bags and eat breakfast. :D

How many cousins do you have, and are you close to them?

I don’t know how many cousins I have, but we’re not really a big clan…so around 20? I think? Unfortunately, we’re not really that close — as I posted more than a year ago. I am getting better at talking to them, but we just don’t really hang out. We didn’t really grow up together, nor went to school together, save for a few. Or, my brother’s close to some of them, but we don’t really hang out. I envy people who are so close to their cousins that they have weekly playstation 3 sessions with them, just like other people do with friends who are not related to them by blood. *sigh* I’m still working on some of my cousin relations. :D

Take your initials (first, middle, last) and come up with something else those letters could stand for. (Example: SFO = Sweet Funny Otter)

KAM. Um…King Action Matrix? Haha, where did that come from?  It’s hard to find a meaning for the letter K. :P

Happy Friday, everyone! :)

"You're standing on my neck."

DariaThank God for DSL, I am now enjoying watching Daria. For those who don’t know, Daria is a spin-off of Beavis and Butthead. I got to watch Daria once in MTV, and as much as I wanted to watch it religiously, I couldn’t because I didn’t know the schedule. Now I just finished downloading Daria season 1. Wohoo! I’ve been watching since Friday and I’ve been giggling like an idiot here in my room. I love, love, love this cartoon. :) Ah, Daria, you are so hilarious. :) And yes, I was told I looked like Daria when I am wearing my glasses back in freshmen year in high school. :D I’m biased. ;)

Anyway, my long weekend was…well, long. Friday caught us with being half afraid of the typhoon, but rain didn’t even appear that day. How fun. I spent the day at home, doing some random testing and watched videos/TV.

Saturday, I was out half the day for the East A Sectoral Christmas Musicale. Stressful day, stressful pre-performance, but everything turned out well. It was then I felt that I belonged in the group, that East A2C is where God wanted me to be. :)

Finally, today, I spent the day watching Joan of Arcadia and Daria, and then went to my cousin’s house to eat for our grand aunt’s birthday. Now in some way, that is the highlight of my weekend. Because of my NaNoWriMo 2006 novel, I’m sorta kinda thinking a lot about cousinhood, and how we would get along and how I could get closer to my cousins, ever since it hit me again how we all don’t seem to be cousins at all. In fairness today, I listened and talked to my cousins after eating, and although we didn’t share “moments”…it was good enough for now. I’m patient. Although I really wish we’d get to share some more stories or something.

I noticed some things too, like how they talked about not going to Mass anymore. Maybe it’s just me, being that going to Mass is already part of my Sunday, and if I don’t get to Mass, I feel like my day isn’t complete. The way they talked about not having been to mass for more than a year was…well, shocking. It’s not something to be proud of…but they sounded like it. :( Okay, Lord I can feel a prayer urge coming in.

This has got to be one of the most boring entries I’ve ever written. Hmm. I shall write my usual ones within this week, hopefully. Gimme time, gimme time! And I should make the new layout this weekend. This long weekend hasn’t been a waste, although I could have done so much more.

On other news, my bedroom is looking less like a storage room of stuff and becoming more of a bedroom. :) I still want a bookshelf.

It’s DECEMBER! Wohoo! 22 days till Christmas! :) Have a great week everyone. :D


You know how in movies or books, where the main character is close to his or her cousin/s? Like in Sweet Valley Twins and Friends, the twins Jessica and Elizabeth share a particularly close friendship with their cousins Robin and Kelly. But that doesn’t only happen in books; I know a lot of people who are close to their cousins. They not only share the cousinhood, but their cousins also act as their best friends sometimes.

I want that.

I came from a birthday party of a younger cousin earlier at their house. Her elder brothers are some of our cousins who were close to our (my brother and I) age. The party was fun, and not that I didn’t like hanging out with my mom, but you know the scene where the “younger ones” within the family tree — ones who are not exactly kids but not exactly grown up yet — get “placed” in a place where they could socialize amongst themselves and then the parents would come later on and get their kids (sometimes even forcibly) home? I want that.
