Over My Head

Over My Head
by: The Fray

I never knew
I never knew that everything was falling through
That everyone I knew was waiting on a queue
To turn and run when all I needed was the truth
But that's how it's got to be
It's coming down to nothing more than apathy
I'd rather run the other way than stay and see
The smoke and who's still standing when it clears

Everyone knows I'm in
Over my head
Over my head
With eight seconds left in overtime
She's on your mind
She's on your mind

Let's rearrange
I wish you were a stranger I could disengage
Just say that we agree and then never change
Soften a bit until we all just get along
But that's disregard
Find another friend and you discard
As you lose the argument in a cable car
Hanging above as the canyon comes between

Everyone knows I'm in
Over my head
Over my head
With eight seconds left in overtime
She's on your mind
She's on your mind

Everyone knows I'm in
Over my head
Over my head
With eight seconds left in overtime
She's on your mind
She's on your mind

And suddenly I become a part of your past
I'm becoming the part that don't last
I'm losing you and its effortless
Without a sound we lose sight of the ground
In the throw around
Never thought that you wanted to bring it down
I won't let it go down till we torch it ourselves

And everyone knows I'm in
Over my head
Over my head
With eight seconds left in overtime
She's on your mind
She's on your mind

Everyone knows
She's on your mind
Everyone knows I'm in over my head
I'm in over my head
I'm in over...

Everyone knows I'm in
Over my head
Over my head
With eight seconds left in overtime
She's on your mind
She's on your mind

Bras and Cup Sizes

So OK. I know the title sounds kinda censored but try reading the article through. It has a moral lesson in the end :-D I just hope I don't place myself in a compromising situation though.

Last Tuesday, I went to shop for a bra that I could wear with my new tube top from Plains & Prints. I searched through one of my favorite undies brands, Triumph for different designs that would look somewhat fine and comfy to wear. I then asked the saleslady for a 36B so I could try it on.

Unfortunately, they didn't have a 36B black for that design. The saleslady asked if it's ok I try another design. Yeah sure, I said ^_^ So on I went to the fitting room to try it out.

The cup didn't fit right.

Now, wait. So does that mean I have to get a bigger cup size?! OH NO! I am getting fatter again *sigh* I told the saleslady about my problem. I said that the cup somehow didn't fit right. She got a tape measure and measured me. She said I was a C, after all. She'll go get a 36C.

I looked around for other designs while waiting for her. And the thought of being a C ran through my head. C? Me? Since when? huhuhuhu I should get some exercise and start dieting. I am getting fatter again.

When she got back, I tried the 36C on. Woohoo! It didn't fit that well, either. It was somewhat large for me ^_^ With a large grin, I went back to the saleslady and told her.

She recommended me another design, instead. She gave me a 36B for that. When I tried it on, it fit perfectly. The cup, the size... Everything's perfect!

Mind you, this is the first time that I bought a bra for myself. It has always been my Mom who bought me these. So it is an accomplishment that I was able to buy a perfect fit for myself ^_^

Moral of the story? Choose the design well. There are some bras that don't really fit you well even if it looks good. Make sure that it's comfortable to wear.

Oh well, why am I telling you this? Don't girls my age know this already? :-P Boohoo for me!

(HI TO RON! ^_^ She's my hot hot former officemate from PCHRD. Say hi to her, too. HI RON! ^_^)

TMNT

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES!!!

Well, after our Tagaytay trip, we decided to watch TMNT. We were curious how it is compared to the TMNT we knew way back when we were kids.

Sesame Street and Bato Balani got beaten by TMNT as a familiar childhood trademark hehehe

The movie is OK. It's your usual TMNT, mushy and funny :D We were kinda confused at the timeline the movie's being shown. We thought it was after Master Splinter died. We were surprised when we saw him somewhat younger than the one being showed on TV before.

I loved the animation and the fight scenes. It wasn't as cartoony as I thought the CG would be. The humor is still funny but Michelangelo hasn't really shown his wacky side yet that much on the movie ^_^

We even debated about Master Splinter at the end of the movie. Wasn't he blind? I thought I remembered wrong but Ja said she did think he was blind. Hmm... I'll research on that.

In the end, everybody felt nostalgic. Those were the days when all your days are filled with just thoughts of ninja turtles and transformers and voltes fives and cartoons ^_^

Sonya's Garden Adventure

The NEC Losers went on a road trip to Tagaytay and had lunch at Sonya's Garden last Saturday, 31 March. As usual, everybody was late. We were supposed to meet at 9AM but everyone came in a little after 10. Oh well, some things never change :P

It was really hot that day. Apparently, summer has set on the country full blast. We were all red from the heat. When we got to Tagaytay, everyone in our car (Pete, Aldwin, Joe-e, Darl, and me) kept on asking the famous loser question "ARE WE THERE YET?"

We were tired and hungry. Some of us didn't eat breakfast so we can munch our way through the buffet at Sonya's.

As soon as we reached Alfonso, Cavite, everybody was on the lookout for the Sonya's Garden signs. As soon as we saw the first sign saying Sonya's Garden, we immediately turned right. The scenery was weird. The road was all bumpy and there were lots of barong-barong around.

(FYI: Barong-barong are houses that are somewhat similar to nipa huts but with a tin roof ^_^)

Then we got to a fork and we were like... Uhhh, are we really on the right track? It looked so deserted. And so... jungle-like... Somebody suggested we turn back. I think we got lost LOL!

When we went back, we met the other car along the way. (Regnard, Liza, Ja, Joey, Dan, Mario, Plog) They were behind us when we went another turn. We just couldn't find any signs of Sonya's so we decided to ask for help. I dunno if the guy there understood what we were talking about or he just felt like giving us a hard time that we got more lost. We turned and turned until we came to a dead end. Man, were we lost or what?!! :P

Everybody was laughing their asses off. Were we supposed to go through the hill then? :P

We decided to go back to the main highway. In the end, we realized we went at the wrong turn LOL! It was just a signage listing the spots at Alfonso, Cavite. It didn't say turn there or something. CRAP! :D

Amazingly, the turn to Sonya's is a few kilometers away still. The turn was right after the Royal Tagaytay Estate.

When we got there, the heat was really beating down on us. It was 1PM.

Goody goody! FOOD, at last! ^_^

I particularly liked the salad. I think I was already full with just the salad. Lettuce, carrots, radish, egg with salad dressing. They also served us with bread. We put on some cheese (called kesong puti here in the Philippines) and sun-dried tomatoes. And the ripe mangoes? Oh what heaven!

A little after, they served pasta. I had a combo of sun-dried tomatoes, salmon and mushrooms. YUMMY YUM YUM! I also had the white sauce with chicken a little later. YUM YUM too. Some of the guys didn't like it, though. I dunno why.

We had chocolate cake, turon and camote after. I can barely stand after the meal. Man, I was really full! ^_^

I also enjoyed some of the amenities and the garden. The CR was cool and comforting. That's what a CR should be *wink*

We had fun mostly at the garden. It was shoot time. We had group pictures and pictures taken for lovers. Pre-wedding pictures. We also had FHM-like shoots. I hope I can upload those, too hehehe

On our way home, we were so sleepy, we left Pete to drive alone while we were snoring away  ^_^ (We'll make it up the next time, Pete!)

Can't wait to go back to Tagaytay. We already have an itinerary when we return: Buon Giorno, take a picture of the wooden house, buy flowers, visit People's Park, etc.

Fun, fun, fun! ^_^

Megatokyo

The only manga I've ever read in my whole life is Megatokyo... Well, I think I read some before but I forgot about it already. So anyways, I used to read this while I was still bumming around at the NEC lab. Plog introduced me to it. I was looking then for a manga to get hooked on while waiting for an anime series to finish downloading. ^_^

But then I stopped reading. My net at home got really crappy and the pages were too slow to load so I gave it up. Then I got busy and had other hobbies, etc. Finally, I totally forgot about it. Until last Friday, 30 March.

It was one of those boring days at the office where everything's running smooth and fine... and you just wanna bum around for a time... and you feel you've deserved it after a few days' worth of hard work... So there I was at my workstation, finding myself reading Megatokyo again.

It's so fun reading it again. I missed Piro and Kimiko's cutsy relationship... and Largo and Erika's wacky relationship ^_^ And all the weird characters there ^_^

And as always, when you're in THE MOOD, you tend to think everything's related to you. Here's a strip from Megatokyo that really got into me: strip id = 833. This is not the typical Megatokyo mood, though. Read through the manga to see how wacky they really are ^_^

Good job, Piro-san! ^_^
