emma; only girl in the world

Summer Lovin # 02

Last week had a lot of tv watching. Though considerably less than the week before due to my annual room cleaning, I still got some face time with the boob tube.

  • Luke Wilson
    I watched Alex and Emma (agan) twice that week, so I can't really get him out of my head. Usually when I fantasize, the guy of the moment's face pops up and the dream can go on. Well, right now, it's Luke Wilson's face that pops. He is so dreamy.

  • Keannu Reeves
    I watched A Walk in the Clouds again (after a million years), and he was just so hot. So nice and chivalrous too -- saving the damsel in a huge distress. If I were to bring him home, I doubt my mom would complain too. My dad would be skeptical, of course, but how cool would it be to have Neo as your son-in-law. The part where they were squashing games with their feet, then they run into their bedroom all dirty and start kissing, I almost die.

  • Timothy Dalton
    Again, he's old. Very old. In fact, he's even older than Andy Garcia, but seeing him as Caesar in Cleopatra, made me swoon. The power and the way he bossed around the Roman troops, I just wanted to die! Yes, he died, and a lame death at that, but he was seriously scorching when he lived. I can also forgive him for his ultra-hairy chest. I'm not one to like that, but on Caesar, it was forgivable.

Fool on a Hill

Today, I was the fool.

No one played tricks on me, or tried pranking me (on purpose), but somehow today I felt like a total idiot. I'm okay, and I'm not going to be depressed about this, because really, it's actually quite funny.

  1. The situation: I woke up early, thinking I was going to commute to get my Pio's report card. Congratulations to him! He finally got his Honorable Mention and Excellence in MUSIC and an award for his participation in his club, German Club. I've never heard him speak German in his life, or hear him sing.
    The joke:My dad tells me he'll bring me. That means I don't have to commute. That's a great thing, but I guess the waking up early part was what made me feel stupid. Still, this was a good joke.

  2. The situation: I had to pick up my ball pics from school. Gawd, I didn't want to go back, but it's necessary. So, I let my dad bring me and I make a dash for it, because Daddy isn't someone you want to keep waiting. I go return the winning pictures I scanned for Blazon to miss and I drop some brochures -- an entire paper bag -- for the guidance office. I reach the waiting room and apparently the pics have not arrived. My dad is waiting, and I am about to be grilled. I make a mad dash for the car, disregarding the fact that I may never see my ball pics again.
    The joke: I reach Mega Mall and Monesca texts me to tell me that Janna sweetie just arrived. My luck.

  3. The situation: I get home tired from the hunt for the Magic Sing and I'm just about to collapse when Gela tells me we have tennis in the afternoon. I'm seriously considering ditching it. But then I remind myself of my crazy dream of playing in Wimbledon and the US Open and all that crazy ass athletic aspirations. I tell myself that Sharapova didn't become a tennis star by laying around in bed. No. She got off her very well toned ass and hit balls and practiced. So I get Pamy to bring me to tennis. I even get there early, because dear sister has a meeting.
    The joke: Right when I arrive at Celeb, and right as my sister's car disappears, I receive Coach's message saying that tennis was cancelled. I wait around for around thirty minutes before my sister can get back to me.
    **thanks dear for picking me up

Coincidence? I don't think so. Long gone are the days when April Fools were blatant, obvious pranks. I think the gods of trickery have gotten smart and decided to make things a little more subtle. After all, it's those jokes you never see coming that surprise you the most.

And to end this, they say that you aboslutely can't get along people you are like. Well, no wonder my dad and I don't get along -- though I am working on becoming the loving, sweet daughter I never have been -- it's because I'm just like him. And to prove this, I have caught myself doing a lot of things my dad usually does. But this is a small, irrelevant, but telling example.

I came up with a really corny joke. And I will share it with all of you. The joke was of course, inspired by something my dad said to me.

Me: What do slow people eat for breakfast
Dad: What?
Me: BAGELS -- as in BAGAL ( meaning slow) with an accent.
Dad: Laughs

Only we appreciate these uber corny jokes.
