I haven’t stopped eating like a PG (read: Patay Gutom) yet, even if the holidays are over (next is Chinese New Year, which falls on the same day as Valentine’s). They say you will do the things you did during the first day of the New Year, so I’m blaming this to the yumminess of the lobsters, fetuccini carbonara, camaron rebosado, spring rolls, morcon, sweet and sour lapu-lapu, leche flan and ube halaya I had for Media Noche at Donnie’s place. Ewan ko ba. When you say kain, I do lamon!
New Year’s Day didn’t help my dreams of getting my 115lbs-self back. Lunch was sinigang na hipon and Media Noche leftovers. Chili con carne plus corn chips, shrimp bisque and beer for merienda in Mexicali, ATC. Stole a couple of spoonfuls of Joko’s White Hat fro-yo. You’d think that’s good- yogurt being the healthier, diet-friendly option but with cheesecake chunks, I don’t think so. But yaaay for the antioxidants in the cherries.
My level of surprise/shock decreases each time I check my Facebook notifications and see more and more of my contacts changing their relationship status to In a Relationship, Engaged or Married. Gawd. Even my non-straight bff is in a relationship now! Is this the newest trend? I still opt not to display my status since I am still waiting for networking sites to create the option I want: Under Construction. LOL.
Since I turned 28, a plenitude of questions with the same gist has been driving me crazy. The gist: Hey Iya, when are you getting married? I’m single and sane, guys. I have not alienated myself from dating, flirting and the other important thing. No need to pressure me. If you’re not the magical matchmaker that the universe designated to shove The One in my face, I say this with a smile… then fucking get off my case.
In 2009, I read a couple of Anne Rice novels and the entire Twilight Saga. I also watched Seasons 1 and 2 of True Blood. Last week, I started Vampire Diaries. I like it better than True Blood, because it’s more exciting (Joko begs to differ) and more visually appealling. Damon, the older vampire bro is hot! Evil, but hot. And he can kick Edward’s ass any time. ‘Wag lang kay Jacob, at gugulpihin ko s’ya.
Note to self: to be a certified vampire fanatic, watch Cirque de Freak: the Vampire’s Assistant and Daybreakers AND read Hunger Games and Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins. The evil ex recommended the series, and yes, his taste in lit is the only thing I trust in him.
Yep, those are my first few relatively relevant thoughts of the new year.
