Quick-Witted Boss

Eddie Alden

Hugh Jackman
so sexy/sweet you'll want to:
Get kicked out of your place so that you can move in with him at his place
Yet another movie Pamy and I absolutely adore. From the moment we watched it, we knew that we were in love with Eddie Alden. How couldn't we? He is the sweetest and sexiest character ever! With his scruffy good looks and broad shoulders which look absolutely fantabulous in just about anything he wore during the movie, Eddie is a sight for sore eyes.

He's just the right mix of naughtiness with the perfect amount of concern for his friends. He was the bad boy on the block with just enough goodness in him to endear him to the crowd. He made the movie, Someone Like You even more likeable.

Yes, he has an accent too. Like just about everyone on the list, when Eddie spoke it didn't matter what he said, because he sounded damn good saying it. That's not to say that the dialogue was cheesy because it wasn't. I totally appreciated the story line, especially with the sexiness of Eddie all over the screen.

My eyes had already popped out of their sockets when Eddie came out of his room in nothing but boxers. I found the scene utterly sweet when he started feeding Jane cold noodles straight out of the Chinese take-out box. Two of my fantasies rolled into one: 1) having someone like Eddie in his state of being undressed sitting right next to me and me feeling comfortable; 2) eating out of a Chinese take out box.

He's just too sweet! I can't take it. Offering his place to her even if he knew she was just going to cramp his style. And he's funny too! I need some humor in my life and Eddie had just enough laughter to give.

I totally feel for Jane, especially when they had this conversation. I can relate somewhat, I guess...

Eddie: It's over. Why can't you just let it go?
Jane: I can't.
Eddie: Why?
Jane: Because I was happy. Because if this theory is wrong, men don't leave all women, Eddie, they leave me.
Eddie: I know it hurts. I know. It's so hard to believe that something that wonderful can ever happen to us again.

Oh Eddie, I can be that wonderful that happened in your life. I know, I'm being delusional again.

Not So Happy Ending

I don't know what's wrong with me, but I'm getting to be an even worse student. I know fully well that I am not doing well in Economics and still I do nothing about it. I could get a grade I know I don't want to get and still I'm not moving my ass.

Another sign I'm becoming such a delinquent: It's already the third week of IW, and I have done zilch! Yes, nothing at all. Sure, I've appeared everywhere, but I have done nothing at all! Grrr... Have I worked this hard for my entire stay in school just to burnout quickly when it is most important.

Then, here I am again, rushing everything. My write-up is going to be rushed! How beautiful of me to do this. Of course I made Mindy's and Fen's ahead of mine, because I had to think more there. Now that I have to do mine. Nothing comes to mind. My mind is as clean as a bond paper. Not recycled too.

Being the control-freak that I am, I of course, have to make it. I just don't know how. Deadline is already on Friday and I have to study for stuff on Thursday, like session tests and crap! And did I mention it was exams next week? Great. Just great. What a way to end the first trimester.

Big-Time Baller

Jerry Maguire

Tom Cruise
so sexy/sweet you'll want to:
quit my job if it means having a new job with him as my boss and boyfriend
Jerry Maguire is probably the sexiest sprots manager ever! I don't even know what he does exactly, but I know one thing for sure, he was the best at what he did. And how can I not want an achiever? How can I resist someone who is willing to take a stand for what he believes in, just like Jerry. How?

Of course it helped that he looked hella sexy even as he quit his job and took Dorothy with him. That woman did the best decision she could ever make, career-wise and relationship-wise. She scored both ways! The lucky girl.

But he also had a sweet side. The way he interacted with Dorothy's adorable son was just priceless. I could just see how he would be with our non-existent kids-to-be (I don't want any kids, actually). Still, in the odd event that we procreated, I would already know how absolutely wonderful and sweet he would be to them. And that's totally important, because who would want to end up with some child-beating/abusing person, right?

I also love confrontation. BUT, only when I know for sure that the two conflicting characters are going to end up together in the end anyway. And these lines were no exception. I'd like to use these lines one day. Hopefully, like Jerry and Dorothy, we get over ourselves and end up together still.

Jerry Maguire: What do you want from me? My soul?
Dorothy: Why not? I deserve that much.

Hell yeah! We do deserve that much. And that's why thanks to our temporary adviser, Siete and I believe that, "We are in God's hands." Indeed we are. So, if God is reading, I'd like to have these lines immortalized into a relationship I might have in my future. And like everything else, with a happy ending of course:

Jerry Maguire: We live in a cynical world. A cynical world. And we work in a business of tough competitors. I love you. You... complete me.
Dorothy: Shut up. Just shut up. You had me at "hello."

No need to stutter, Jerry. You had me way before hello.

Happy to See less than Tab

My parents braved the rain to pick me up at 2pm today. So sweet of them. Of course, my ever protective dad, refused to make my mom commute, although she does this all the time, so I was riding a car this afternoon. A bit naïve if you ask me, because mom's so used to riding around town on public transport that it's a bit weird for dad not to want her to do these things when she obviously does it all the time.

What happened between 3pm this afternoon and about an hour ago? What happened to all that precious time I was saving up all my work for? What happened to all my plans of doing all my work? Well, what do I love doing best? Sleep.

Seven hours of bliss. Gotta love that. Now, I have to do P4's write-ups. Compiling is a bi***. And of course, the beautiful Janna's too. I love this girl too much. I'll do anything for her.

But before going home, I must say that I was able to get my tri-weekly dose of TAB. Actually, Siete, Ocho, Seis and I aren't quite sure if he is even a full-fledged tab. We think he's probably less than tab. Still, I didn't think I'd see him, but I guess it's kismet. I couldn't believe my eyes. I'm not complaining though, because who am I to really complain about seeing him, right? I pointed him out to my mom and I don't know what reaction I got from her, and I really don't care. Because I saw him and that made me sleep a lot easier when I got home.

In fact, I'm in a much better mood right now. Feeling quite right.
