I am currently here at Mom's computer again after meeting up with the florist (Hope, cher, she knows you since her daughter's name is Raffy...or something like that. ^^) and discussing the various arrangements for my debut. ^^ heheheh...
On other news, I'm plugging a little something for those of you who happen to like sci-fi stories with loads of angst and twisted viewpoints.

I have no idea how I can think coherently.
OMGOMGOMG... *promptly faints*
Coincidence and Song Titles.
Life or Something Like It.
Ranted on my darkblog again... though I don't know if it can be called a rant. *sighs* Makes me wonder if Refuge - this idea I had to serve as a haven for... people, should even push through or not. Bloody depressing, is what this is. And no amount of comfort can help me for the next five minutes.
So... I will simply attempt to bring in some happy news.
I got an email from the Common Rotation Street Team last night. Practically jumped over the moon when they responded. And TRUST me - the way the message went said that they DID read my email.
Good news #2. No more projects after today. Finals on the move, but nonetheless, at least I won't have to sleep after 12 finishing papers and the like. Anyone out there who can miraculously plop a laptop on my lap - I will worship thee. ^_^ though who will give me a laptop for free I will seriously wonder if they've got a screw loose.
Good news #3. My Tita Winnie is finally arriving in roughly... two hours. And hopefully, they'll drop by the house (they, meaning my Tita Riza, my Tito rene, Tita Inday and Tita Wen) so that I can bug her. ^_^ She's got my LOTR: FOTR extended DVD and let's face it - I need my Haldir fix. ^_^;;
Hmmm... what else, oh yeah:
DE *huggles* thank you so much for updating again, heh... hopefully I will get a chance to email soon. I know Isaid I'd send one today... but I need to think and clear my head before I start blubbering like an idiot over several things. All I can say for now is that YES - I need your advice, and I will warn you that fthere are several... things that I'll need your more rational side working.
Be gentle, though, please. I have Athens to drop the heavy bombs and I need a little more in the emotional support department. *laughs*
Hm... yupyup! One more to add! ^_^;; Mai, I hope Leander got you the lyrics - here's the explanation why. Bagay sa inyo. Rather... it's seems like an appropriate song for hi to 'sing'/ dedicate to you. Heheheh... happens sometimes when I'm in the car on the way home and I hear a particularly romantic song that puts the two of you to mind. ^_^;;
I LOVE chatting at TC - everyone's so nice and fun to be around. Makes me miss the Mighty Ducks: TAS mIRC chat. Particularly since TC sounded a LOT like it. You know - things flying in all directions, various people commenting at the same time, innuendos and other funny tidbits. (word for the day: tidbits)
Makes me smile to remember just HOW MUCH the internet and connections over it have changed the original course of my life. Makes me feel... whole in the sense that I'm connected to all these wonderful people who I wouldn't have met if it weren't for computers, Internet Explorer and modems. Cheers to the creators of computers.
So, 'i love you's' to all those out there - I won't list you all because you KNOW who you are... and well... I guess I'm 'back' so to speak. Happy and whole as ever and not so lost anymore. The little empty space right over my heart and the quiet tug of my 'strings' may hurt a little and leave me feeling down from minute to minute - but I know that what's important is here and now and in the people who I care about the most.
So, to the Goddess, I thank you so much for my Mom's recovery, even if the pain comes once in awhile.
I thank you and continue to pray for Elee-chan's speedy recovery as well. It's not everyday you survive cancer. It's a blessing and an achievement cher.
I thank the Lady for the sincere and wonderful love I see in Maia's eyes and the genuine affection I sense in Leander's woprds over mIRC. May the both of you get through this and last for as long as you both desire.
I thank the Lady for the gift of my darlings - Alessa, Eden, Hope, Nenloth (I WILL MISS YOU SWEETIE!!! Write me, okay?! I LOVE YOU. Good luck on your trip to the US). For the other little darlings - Eli, Elee, Kala, Bernadette, Marty, Les, Meemee, Boo, Refe, JC-chan, Aice... I love you all, never doubt that.
For my brothers:
Flip ~ you are and always will be my twin.
Doggieniichan ~ whatever you wish for, and whatever you deserve will come in due time for you are wonderful and loving and the best of kuya's i've ever had.
To Mac ~ friendship is a funny thing. Because it always begins with strangers. I'm right here you... ^_^;; heheh... kelan tayo inom?! ^_^;; joke...
DE ~ you are a god(dess)send and I love you and thank you so much for being...there. You can move mountains. You can part oceans. All this is possible because of your beautiful heart.
I thank the Lady for the MDTAS people... who, though I don't exactly talk to 24/7, I keep in my thoughts always. And for the other friends I've made c/o blogger.
I thank the Lady for the prescence of people like How and Mela and the rest of the hockey team - for teaching me again the marvels fo teamwork and friendship. This goes out to my highschool barkada and to the Three that make up the rest of KANS. In the end, we remain - forever. That much is true.
And lastly - I thank the Goddess for Athena and her patience and trust. For her uniqueness and her forgiving soul. For Ekai, who stands as light and emotion and the purest of all beings. For Maia, who has been nothing but the most wonderful of friends. For Harle - my daily dose of sunshine and that one dreamer who keeps fairytales alive for me. And for my sister, Isis. We've come this far.
This song... goes out to all of you.
The Extra Mile
Written by: Pam Sheyne, Tina Arena, & Andrew Frampton
Performed by: Laura Pausini
Album: Pokemon 2000 Soundtrack
Countless eyes are watching
In this, our finest hour
It's time to realize the dream
And who we really are
I'm gonna freeze this place in time
Rise to meet the call
Seize the moment, make it mine
And, through it all...
Sraight as the arrow flies
I will run toward the finish line
With all the strength I've found
My feet won't touch the ground
I will scale the heights if I believe
Your wings of faith will carry me
I'll go the distance just to reach
The arms I'm running to
I'll go the extra mile
I know it won't be easy
To make you understand
I want to take the glory
And put it in your hands
'Cause you're the light that makes me shine
You're the hero in my eyes
Win or lose, do or die
I have made it high
(Go the extra mile)
In the end
(Go the extra mile)
I want to be able to say
I gave all of me for the world to see
And I would do it all again
I'll go the extra mile
Knowin' it would be worthwhile
I will go the extra mile

Am back in Netopia with Isis on the 44th console right across me, Caeli behind her and Harle behind me. Maia just left since she has to catch Cyril's graduation.
Anyway, before I move onto anything else:
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALESSA!!!
Heheh... you're sixteen today (DON'T call yourself old - if you're old, then what am I? Ancient?! ^_^;;)
Next... DE, this is addressed to you - it's on your bloggie but since you blog-hop more than you post - this is what i have to say:
yes, DE, i still happen to need a big brother... and yes, i have missed you. mrf. hope athens bopped you over the head hard enough since you've updated.
i may be strong... considering now... but i do get tired. goddess knows i've been tired this past week... and will continue to be for some time.
and lately... i'm a little on the scared side... let's just say that i have cried a certain number of times in the past three days. mail me and i'll tell you what about.
heaven help me... just... be there.
as athens said, i look like the type to take offense when knights in shining-blinding-white armor come running along... but then again, i don't need the clean-and-polished knight. i'd prefer those with dents and burns and any sign of bloody combat here and there.
mean's they're real.
and i won't take offense from them because theyprolly understand that no matter how strong you are, no matter how brave you seem - it can only go so far.
seems to be an epidemic lately. isis, and me, and mai and harle and kai.
talk about irony among ironies.
the goddesses... need people.
but then again: don't we all?
i love you D. take care, okay? *hugs and kisses*

A site worth visiting in my book.
Open mouth, insert foot.
My arm hurts. My shoulder hurts. My feet hurt.
She is a Wiccan by choice with Roman Catholic roots thanks to her parents and believes everything has a reason, and that
fate does not equal coincidence.

"I love Amy Lee from Evanescence and admire her style in singing. Her voice is heartbreaking and it just gets to you. I'm not saying I want to be her, but to be able to sing as good as she can, and as honest as she can... that's enough."
