Last Minute Comments for all those who left messages on my last entry.

Eli-chan - you may call me Mommy.^^ Heheheh... Marty does the same on occassion.

Harle - glad to be of help love. And yes, Kenny Loggins. Borrowed a CD of his songs back in freshman year in high school from a friend of mine. He was the original person to sing it, supposedly, and then I think America sang it after.

Nenloth - Miss you too darling. Will hopefully see you sometime soon during Christmas break, though considering that DLSU is being a natural pain... *sighs* We'll just have to wait and see. *huggles*

Maia - Darling, updates and stories will be bountiful when i get back. Mrf... and so will the aches and pains of my body, assuming that the people we're going up against are probably going to be bigger than us, even for women.

For those of you who want to check up on the stats of the individual players and the teams themselves, go here and check out the link that says: 2003 Hockey Tournament. When you get in to the page, look to the upper right area where there's a box with these words:

Welcome Note
From The Organiser
Pools & Team List
Game Schedule & Results
Pool Standings [M] [F]
Ind. Statistics [M] [F]
Calling All Ice Players

Click on the Standings and Statistics... hopefully they'll be updating it RealTime and you'll be able to see if I made a goal - got manhandled (Joke lang Mai...^^). And to think everyone in the Women's Team (well almost everyone, to my knowledge) had orthodontic treatment (READ: b-r-a-c-e-s). Not to worry though - I have a mouthguard from ShockDoctor, and LOTS of padding and a decent helmet with a full cage. To quote our dear coach: "I want everyone coming home beautiful."


Athens - I will be gone until Sunday evening. Be back on the last flight in from Hong Kong. Mrf. Which will be well past my supposed bedtime which will undoubtedly be postponed until 2am. Gr. No skipping classes as well, have this group work or individual chuva that we have to do in my PHILPER (Philosophy of the Person) class (yes Mai, the prof I *really* do not like...)

On other notes, I am going to say thank you to Ube and Alden, and Katkat for giving me several well-wishes as well.^^ Heheheh... I will come back safe and sound, mrf. *mutters* You'd think that i was going to the moon. *coughcough - smiles again*


Oh well... so I guess I'll be back when I get back.^^ The sentimental indiot in me's bringing piccies of my dearest (darling) friends.^^ *pauses* then again, maybe that's not such a good idea should any mishap of Fate happen and the pics start moving like the ones in Harry Pot-pot, I would have to contend with panic attacks and screeches from Mai, 'Are you okay?'s from numerous head bobbing in and out of the photo and finally, Mai having a heart-attack.^^ (Yes, I still have not forgotten the hilarity of 'neesan going ballistic.^^ Ehihi.)

Sige, at lalayas na ako.
Ciao mes amis.

Logging in for a few...

Harle, I found the lyrics you've been looking for.^^

The Last Unicorn
Kenny Loggins

When the last eagle flies,
Over the last crumbling mountain
And the last lion roars,
At the last dusty fountain
In the shadow of the forest,
Though she may be old and worn
They will stare unbelieving
At the Last Unicorn

When the first breath of winter,
Throught the flowers is icing
And you look to the north,
And a pale moon is rising
And it seems like all is dying,
And would leave the world to mourn
In the distance hear her laughter
It's the Last Unicorn
I'm alive....... I'm alive

When the last moon is cast,
Over the last star of morning
And the future is past,
Without even a last desparate warning
Then you look into the sky where through
The cloudes a path is formed
Look and see her how she sparkles,
It's the Last Unicorn
I'm alive... I'm alive!!!!

~*~ )O( ~*~

Am at Netopia at the moment, passing the time until I have to hitch my butt down back to class. Am looking up the YMCA website for the tournament thanks to Mom and checking out the roster just for kicks. Am also lurking in Tokyochat, but can't contribute much since I don't really know the people there that well.

*pauses to browse*

I'm leaving on Wednesday... and have been packing (partially) and getting stuff ready. Tonight we've got one more practice, though it seems as though several of the girls might not attend. Not that we'll be short of people though, just a few here and there, which we can deal with. The jerseys will be distributed tonight - I think - and we'll be surrendering our sticks to the captains and to coach. Can hardly wait.

Feel a little... off about leaving. Hasn't exactly sunk in as of yet, and by the looks of things it'll only sink in once I'm on the airplane... It's sinking though, since I'm actually experiencing (oddly enough) little bouts of panic since I woke up this morning. Nothing major - just not used to traveling alone - technically.

Maybe I ought to keep a journal for the trip - considering that between the games, sleeping, eating and possible shopping I'll have nothing to do... with the exception of reading The Sky Over Dimas and writing the reaction paper for LITERA1 for it. At least I'll get work done and will just have to type it up when I get myself back here, right?

*pauses again and reads through her entry*

Well, I guess that's about it for now. I really don't have anything else to add at the moment and I'd better get going anyway.


Ciao ma belles.

Melina Noelle Dauphin is 18 years of age born on the 18th of April 1985 at 9:25 am, on the cusp of Aries and Taurus.

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.

She is surrently studying at De La Salle University and will be taking up Behavioral Sciences come 1st term, 2003.

Her great loves include her music, dancing, writing, reading, hockey, Tolkien, Dragonlance, the Mighty Ducks (both animated and the non-animated), and art in general.

She is known in various names such as Mel, Lina, Mia D (Devlin?), Noelle/Noey, Noei, Nyre, Lynne, Lillie, Noele, Nibblet...all depending on what fandom/ mood/ life/ timeframe/ universe she's in. (MPD anyone?)

She wishes she were part Irish, is desperately learning how to speak Gaelic (and Cajun) and dreams of setting foot in New Orleans in time for Mardi Gras, or on the shores of Ireland for Midsummer's Eve.
