Lucy and Dory

I saw this movie called 50 First Dates last night, starring Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler, in DVD and I'm still very amused by the story up to this moment.. The movie is about Lucy (Drew) who got into a car accident and suffered short term (her case only lasts 1 day) memory loss (reminded me sooo much of Dory from Finding Nemo hehehe!). She repeats everything that happened on the day of the accident since that was the last thing she remembered and she does it over and over. And the guy (Adam Sandler) makes her fall in love with him everyday since she forgets everything come next day.

It's not everyday that I get to see an interesting movie that stays on my head till the next day. :D

Yesterday was an ordinary traffic monday in Cavite.. My dad was driving me to work ang my sister to school on his way to work when we got stuck with the traffic along Kostal market in Aguinaldo Highway.. Traffic is always heavy on monday morning along Aguinaldo Highway but usually, the end of the heavy traffic is somewhere in central imus area so it was unusual for the traffic to reach that far. When my dad finally managed (with his manila cab driver driving skills) to edge his way past the traffic, the cars ahead of us suddenly either swerved to the left or to the right. Curious on what they were avoiding at the middle of the road, when we finally approached the area, it was shocking to see a corpse of a young lady obviously ran over by a vehicle in a pool of her own blood.. it's not the very first time i've seen one but everytime, I still have that feeling of pity towards the dead person and anger to the person responsible for it. I always take extra precaution when driving along Aguinaldo highway especially at the dark since I know there are many people crossing the street which the driver cannot see from the back of the wheel because I'm scared to death of hitting a person.. I'd rather hit a truck and be dead than hit a person and kill them.

movie potato

I went to watch a couple of movies a few weeks ago.. Spiderman 2 was charming(I'm a sucker to happy endings), Kill Bill 2 is worth watching (better to watch the prequel first), The prince and Me was okay only because I like Julia Stiles (read between the linesssss) and Harry Potter was an improvement. I never got the chance to see Chronicles of Riddick and now I'm looking forward to seeing Catwoman.

There's nothing more relaxing than watching a good movie these days... I hope I get to see one again soon..

Stress from a very, very bad (quite an understatement...) working environment these past months somehow influenced me to read depressing and unfortunate materials both in print and in the internet.. last april, I got hooked to reading almost everything about criminals in BBC.. spent long nights for the first season of the american TV show CSI.. and the child in me sent me astray to the children's book section to Lemony Snicket's Baudelaire kids in Series of Unfortunate Events. The first book is quite depressing, of course. While I was reading the first few chapters of the book, I was trying to imagine myself as a 14 year old reading such depressing book and how could it have affected me. Just curious.

Well, anyway, at the same time also, I went gaga over Dan Brown novels Angels and Demons and Da Vinci Code. Also of CS Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia (which I am now down to the last few pages but I just can't make myself finish it because I did not like the thought of Narnia actually coming to an end.. Its depressing!)

Now, with the busy schedule and all, I decided to do some light reading with my Pugad Baboy collection. I've been collecting those comic books since I was in college but unfortunately, eversince my family moved to our new home and with me staying overseas most of the time, my siblings just couldn't take their hands off it and eventually, I couldn't find where they are now.. Well at least most of it.. I'm now starting to rebuild that collection (rebuild as in pestering my siblings to give those books back to me!)

I've always dreamed of having a house with a tiny library.. or at least some sort of a library to keep my precious books. It's something I wanted so much to teach my children (if I'll have any). I was so deprived when I was young (nobody else was interested in the family but me) and of course, I did not have the money then to buy some for myself.

Now that I do, I'm trying to catch up on my reading. Finally!
