The Ramble

i feel I’ve been slacking off on blogging duties but I’m thinking I might disappoint my hordes of readers (i have faith and an incredible imagination). So, now, here in the salon with only one hand for typing because I’m getting a manicure, I feel is as good a time as any to exercise my muli-tasking chops and blog. So I am.

I’m getting one of those washable-type cellophane hair treatments at the moment coz I want my hair to be really bright for the intramurals I don’t necessarily– ah, I have my hand back, now– have a part of. I’ve also just gotten a manicure with this gray matte polish that mommy and I bought from Skin Food. It is PRETTY, albeit a little faded and weird, coz I don’t think the concept of MATTE was properly grasped by the manicurist. Needless to say, I have gray fingernails. I am happy. Pictures will get posted as soon as I get some. πŸ˜›

I’ve been posting more lookbook shots, I’ve not been keeping it an everyday thing as much as I used to but it’s constant and going as strong as I can expect it to go. I have hypes– although not too many– and I’m happy.

So the midterms week passed by with not so much as a peep from me. I’m thinking I’m better off swearing off blogging during hell week than broadcasting it to the millions of readers and then failing the exams. I’ve not seen a lot of results but from what I HAVE, it’s pretty smooth sailing from here.

I’ve been having problems with my hair recently. It’s falling off. Not as melodramatically as you would think, like coming off in clumps and leaving patches as though I have Alopesia but it’s getting to be more than the normal hundred-strands-a-day shed and it’s sufficient enough to creep me out. My dad’s taking me to a dermatologist to check with the condition of my scalp. I am scared.

On a lighter note, I’ve a lot of nice pictures to entertain you. AFTER THE JUMP!!!

How was the jump? I’ll bet it was jeeeest fine…

So, intramurals week. The one week we get off from school for sports and whatnot. Ok, I don’t really much care for any real purpose of being but I am hella GRATEFUL I get the week (and more, coz the school can’t fight national holidays like the Araw Ng Kagitingan and the End of Ramadan) off. I don’t want to seem insensitive to the people that actually have SOMETHING relevant to do on the said holidays but it’s not a crime to be happy for days off. So there.

I’m just boiking toast any which way I feel. πŸ˜€

I read a lot of fashion blogs. I follow a lot of model-type females that look like good pictures come naturally to them. I am not one of those ladies.

But I try.

More often than not, I am complete and utter FAILURE. Once in a blue moon, however, magic happens.

Can you see it?

Boiling toast, one slice at a time. πŸ˜›

Just so you guys know, I’m all caught up on post-a-week, seeing as it’s only the third week of January and I’ve already come up with four, count ’em, FOUR toasts, er, POSTS.

So Louise, my ickle sibling of the female persuasion, is celebrating her birthday on Friday, the 21st.

too-too-too-doo-doo-doo-doo-too-too-too (a la kuzko on the emperor's new groove) πŸ˜›

She’ll be turning 17 (zoot a’lors!) not with a fizzle but with a bang because she’ll be holding a party on Saturday with icing fights, a jump and bounce, catering, karaoke, henna artists, the works!

Kevin, β™₯the toast my boiler boils forβ™₯, and I will be combining what minuscule knowledge we each have on the culinary arts to come up with the sweetest, most colorful icing (oh, yeah, coz that needs a lot of culinary expertise, LOL) for the most banging, chaotic, and RIDONKULOUS icing fight, EVAH!!!

Yes, toast boilers, we are going to attempt to turn this:

the most magnificent icing EVAH!

Into this:

nothing but the best for the day's little princess!

She’ll never see it coming! Well, she’ll see the icing coz it was her, after all, who requested the sugary clouds. What she won’t see is its AWESOMENESS because the icing we’re planning on making will reach the heights of awesome which none have ever seen nor dreamed of before!

I might be getting ahead of myself here, folks, seeing as Kevin and I are scrambling to get his mom’s recipe and the kind of ingredients (AND A HAND MIXER!) that we’ll need for this endeavour. But, rest assured, it’s gonna be awesome!

Either way, i’ll be needing some warm, toasty luck from y’all so, WISH IT!

What’s boiling, toasters? I’m thinking the POST A WEEK 2011‘s boiling! πŸ˜€ LOLSKIES, that was lame. Hahaha…

So anyway, I read this thing where WordPress is challenging its bloggers to post, post, post once a week, thus the title… POST-A-WEEK… du-uh… in an effort to up the blogging and crush the evil that is writer’s block…

Just call me wondergirl.

Anyway, I’ve decided to take them up on their challenge and I will be posting at LEAST once a week (hey, girl’s gotta blog) about the zany, mysterious, and otherworldly mundane activities that make up that which I have cleverly named my life.

So tune in, more than once a week, if that’s possible, and check to see the awesomeness that is my writing prowess and the perspectives of a sheltered loudmouth babe and how she fares in this, a most formidable of challenges.

En garde, WordPress!

Ladies and gentlemen, last Sunday was the most awesome most festive event of my fair city of Cebu — SINULOG! We spent the whoooole Sunday being awesomely astounded by the sights and sounds of the mardigras parade.

In the whirlwind of costumes, masks, henna tattoos, screaming spectators, and lechon (that’s roast pig, *slurp*), I must say it was a LOT of fun!

The title of this entry is basically the battle cry of this festival. It’s Cebuano for “shout loud”! Yessss… It’s MY day. i can be as loud as I want to be and pay homage to the little boy the whole festival is about, Sto. NiΓ±o. It’s like hitting two birds with one stone!

Not that I’d ever want to hit two birds with a stone… Nor do I even think that’s possible… O.O

Anyway, I’ll be posting some pictures of me, my family, my tattoos, and even some of the pretty contingents… ENJOY! πŸ™‚

That’s an awesome piece of boiled toast, that is. πŸ˜‰
