VD (Vampire Diaries)

An editor once told me never to work in a film unwilling to buy good music. Yes, all the best sound design and scoring can only be noticed on the second viewing of a story. Except when it replaces dialogue.

The latter is true for the series VD. Compelling music swap casually with dialogue. Very unlike its juvenile (young adult, if you must) counterpart, Twilight Saga. Characters are three dimensional despite their clichéd personas.

My initial three word review:
“Buffy meets 90210.”

My updated three word review:
“Everybody loves Damon.”

the gall

goodbye, rocky and yucky. i will soooo not miss you.
(trying to make it less gross by posing tiny mr.bean bear next to it)

last saturday, 20th february was supposedly just another weekend of errands consisting of
1 ocular inspection with lunch @ discovery suites
2 a quick stop to get baby's toddler pillow
3 a grocery run
4 baby vitamins
5 and find a shirt for jerome's hermoso clan reunion.

somehow, we got the first 2 done, and all the rest took a backseat as i was rushed to medical city's e.r.

it was the 3rd time in 3 months for me to see the inside of the e.r. this time, the pain was so intense that i was literally crying. it was more painful than giving birth to audrey (yes, yes, i had an epidural then.)

the ultrasound showed a pair of gall stones the size of small olives. one of them was blocking the neck of my gall bladder.

all the rest was a blur. laparoscopic cholescystectomy it is. on monday. no food till after. painkillers. oh god bless painkillers.

maxicare doctors took out my gall bladder along with the stones.

these things seem to affect 4f's:
Farts a lot

hahahaha not even funny. grrrowl.

the stones are totally disgusting specimens if you ask me. they literally are stones. they are not smooth ones, they look like warty, rough things.


so glad they are gone from my body. good riddance.

Seeing Avatar

To start off our 2010’s joint moviegoing career, my husband and I decided to see AVATAR. Yes, it deserves all caps…the amount of work that went into computer generated imagery will move you.

My initial 3 word review immediately after the film (yes, I call it FILM):
Daym! Blink. Breathe.

My morning after 3 word review:
Dances with wolves.

My latest 3 word review:
Pocahontas on acid.

Overall—I still find it to be one of the best films I have ever seen in a long time. Mabuhay ka, James Cameron… I hope your peers will get over their resentment over your success and hand you your next Oscar. And congratulations for winning those globes.

Chances by Five for Fighting
Totally unrelated to topic, but i like it. ;P

Happy New Year! I started my year unlike every other... this year, my annual goals list has been streamlined to one single minded objective: Bring Sexy Back.

Bring SEXY back to work, home, and all aspects of life. Basically, be inspired, be creative, be fun, be fabulous, and finally…just BE.

Now say this with me: 2010 is the year of the sexy.

Hahahhahahappy new year!
