The thing people forget is how good it can feel when you finally set secrets free. Whether good or bad, at least they're out in the open. And once your secrets are out in the open, you don't have to hide behind them anymore. The problem with secrets is even when you think you're in control, you're not.

I'm a geek at heart. :D And I have this thing for nerds. These two reasons dictated my desire to watch The Big Bang Theory. The show is centered around two brilliant but socially awkward physicists (geeks, in short). They have this sexy, blonde neighbor who moved across the hall. These two geeks have two friends that are even geekier. How's that for a storyline?

The scripts are filled with scientific references some people might not understand. But really, you don't have to be a nerd to appreciate the science rumor. The jokes are delivered with dry humor which makes it even funnier. Just the right dose of geekiness and hilarity that I need.

a little something from the show

Finally, a TV show for me. A comedy with wit and heart, and for a change - lovable geeky brains too.

Which Friend Are You Quiz on

Like Chandler, you consider yourself the only "normal" member of your social group. And considering how strange your parents were, that's quite an achievement. Always keeping a sense of humor, your intelligence shows in your quick retorts and use of sarcasm. Despite your hard shell, however, you have surprising depths of emotion and sympathy, proving to be an excellent friend.

57 days to go before Christmas...

Posted by darkangel | 1:07 AM | | 1 comments »

...if you are planning on getting me a gift this year, which you ALL should be, then here's a little help in picking out that special gift for yours truly!

FRIENDS DVD (Seasons 1-10)
Scrubs DVD
House DVD
12 uninterrupted hours of sleep
a hoodie
a Sudoku puzzle book
A Gabriel Garcia Marquez book
The Street Lawyer by John Grisham
a soccer ball
a Guitar


I'm a Sudoku addict. I can't sit down at the computer without attempting to solve at least one puzzle. I even get remarks like "Why are you playing a nerd's game?" and "Are you a nerd?". I don't give a single damn though. I love nerds and to be called as one is humbling... :P

I'm posting here a screen shot of my best Sudoku score/time, so far.

Beat that!

Every once in a while, a good commercial comes on TV that makes you smile, and makes you wish other commercials didn't suck. This is that commercial.

The world is just awesome. Indeed.

just bragging...

Finally, my first ever Adsense earnings!

can someone please take me away...

Posted by darkangel | 1:03 AM | | 0 comments »


Take Me Away

This time what I want is you
There is no one else
Who can take your place
This time you burn me with your eyes
You see past all the lies
You take it all away
Ive seen it all
It was never enough
It keeps leaving me needing you

Take me away
Take me away
Ive got nothing left to say
Just take me away

I try to make my way to you
But still I feel so lost
I dont know what else I can do
Cause Ive seen it all
It was never enough
It keeps leaving me needing you

(repeat chorus)

Dont give up on me yet
Dont forget who I am
I know Im not there yet
But dont let me stay here alone

Ive seen it all
And its never enough
It keeps leaving me needing you
Ive seen enough
And its never enough
It keeps leaving me needing you

(repeat chorus)
Take me away
Take me away

Posted by darkangel | 4:53 AM | | 0 comments »

I feel weird writing about this but ok here it goes:

The ever conceited Kriss asked me to read his most recent blog post. To satisfy his ego, I did. I wasn't prepared for the emotions and the memories that came flooding in. And before I knew it, I was shedding tears. Damn you, eggboy!

I was reading evidences of the my UP days, and I must say... damn, those good 'ol days were sure fun... I remember how carefree it was way back then. You need not worry about anything at all (except for exams and papers and exams and papers and exams and papers again)! I remember spending time with SHIFT either pigging out or singing our asses off in the karaoke booth (gawd, how long has it been since we did that?).

Kakamiss ang student lounge days, kakamiss ang porsi - charles loveteam, ang tambay moments sa student council office, ang PE classes sa audi, ang kumos-kumos lunch sa mushroom, ang banana -q and iced tea ni manong sa likod, ...gawd, I even miss the ancient library and its relic of books . Hay... hehe... I suddenly feel so OLD....T_T

It's been TWO years...two years mahn... since I've entered a UP classroom and actually listen to my teacher blab about finance, debit, credit, balance sheet, accounts payable,cash and kung ano pa da nga mga accounting terms.

Yugz tama na ni a..daw mahibi naman ko liwat..hehehe

countdown to freedom...

33 days and I'll be gone..

I'm watching too many movies. This week alone I finished Lost in Translation, The Last Samurai, Sleepless in Seattle, Good Will Hunting, Dead Poet's Society, Love in the Time of Cholera, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, American Beauty, Finding Neverland, A Few Good Men, 12 Angry Men, Ghost, No Country for Old Men and The Lion King. That's 14 movies in six days!

Please calculate this for me. How many hours of sleep do I get everyday given the following circumstances:

  • A movie is about 120 minutes long,
  • I have a 9 to 5 job,
  • I spend 30 minutes a day in the shower,
  • I lie in bed and stare at our ceiling contemplating about love, life and war and its consequences,
  • I stare at the ceiling (again!) planning of ways to get rich and asking why I'm not getting any money
  • I spend an hour reading,
  • and I cook breakfast and dinner.

When it comes to the remote control, I am the one in control. I waste precious hours of my life sitting in a monoblock chair with my face just two feet away from a 21" color television. Here are some of the shows that kept me glued to the idiot box:

1. Friends
2. House
3. Boston Legal
4. How I Met Your Mother
5. Prison Break
6. Heroes
7. Avatar: the Last Airbender
8. Cheers
9. Scrubs
10. 30 Rock
11. The O.C
12. The Sopranos
13. The Simpsons
14. National Geographic: Megastructures
15. Barefoot Contessa
16. Rachel Ray
17. Iron Chef America
18. National Geographic : Fight Science
19. National Geographic : Don't Tell My Mother

Here are some the books the rattled my cage, took me to places, and fed my imagination.

1. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
2. Catcher in the Rye by J.D Salinger
3. Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky
4. The Alchemist by Paolo Coelho
5. The Client by John Grisham
6. The Rainmaker by John Grisham
7. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
9. Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom
10. Angela's Ashes by Frank McCourt

Joey's Lipstick

Posted by darkangel | 2:06 PM | | 1 comments »

I was browsing the caves of Youtube when I found this episode of Friends where Joey did an advertisement for Ichiban, a lipstick especially made for men. The target market is Japanese people so you don't have to raise your questioning eyebrow. Anyway, I found this very hilarious and can't resist the urge to post it.
