Random Thoughts 5: Mamma Mia! I Have A Dream...

Just wanna goof off with the title but what I'm about to write doesn't actually have any connection at all...except that I just watched Mamma Mia (the movie) last last weekend with friends and that last night, I had a very weird dream (told yah, NO CONNECTION at all...). Anyway, first, the movie: Mamma Mia starring Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan, and the others (too many to mention Ü). It was a fun movie. Definitely a chick flick. A guy friend of mine got dragged into it by his officemates and he left the theater even before the movie ended. That's how much he didn't like it. Haha! But my friends and I did. It was a mixture of funny moments with a bit of light drama and of course, lots of singing. Definitely a feel-good movie i'd recommend to any one of my girl friends. Another good thing about the movie is the beautiful scenery...the nice, clear blue water and the chapel on top of a huge rock (that was a rock...a very big one...right???). Surely a great place to get married at (only if you can magically make all the guests appear at the chapel without them having to walk the million steps to get there).

Next...the dream. I'm actually not comfortable writing about it so i'll just speak in general terms here. It involves someone that I used to love. Someone that I wanted to get to know better. A few friends. A wedding. And what seems to be a carefully planned plot such that it's something that can actually happen in real life (not those far-fetched dreams that you're definitely sure is impossible like flying or running naked in the streets). That's all that I'm willing to share for now.Ü


I am a Tortillos addict! Just for today...I think (and I hope). What's bothering me is that I was never a fan of Tortillos. Sure I've had a bite of it here and there but it was never in my "Favorite Junk Foods" list. But today, I had it for lunch, merienda, and dinner. Yes, you read it right. I had it for lunch together with my gambas and rice...for merienda with my assorted fruits...and just now for dinner with spaghetti. I blame my hormones for this Tortillos craving since i'm about to have my period soon. Gheezh! Bloatedness? CHECK! Cravings? CHECK! Pimple/s? CHECK. And this happens every month. Who said that we girls had it easy? Ugh!


I went to Araneta last Friday to check out the latest Bench fashion show aptly titled: BLACKOUT. Well, it was a blackout, alright. Disappointing to a certain extent. It definitely didn't live up to my expectations seeing as the previous shows were really spectacular! (see link for my write-up on the previous show) Super bitin...and not in a good way. I guess what made it disappointing, for me at least, is that: (1) Piolo was not there. Why oh why is Piolo not there? He's a Bench model, right? Then why is he missing? I just don't get it. But I guess I shouldn't have expected him to be there since I've never seen a billboard of him promoting the show unlike Sam, Dingdong, and others. However, a friend pointed-out that John Lloyd wasn't there (in the show) but we actually have a newspaper clipping with pictures of some of the Bench celebrity endorsers and John Lloyd was one of those in the clipping. So we're just wondering what happened...(2) The show just failed to tickle everyone's delight. Sure there were a few highlights like Rafael Rosel naked and revealing his behind (but he was behind a curtain and only a camera was projecting images to the big screen...and it was actually only just his behind that got shown...well, duh! It would not have been just R-18 if they showed more than that!)...and Dingdong Dantes unzipping and removing his pants onstage to reveal an itsy-bitsy underwear. But aside from that, nothing else stood out in the show (at least in my opinion).

Well, being the optimistic that I am, all was not lost in this sea of disappointment since...drum roll please...I bumped into Anne Curtis in the Araneta washroom with her model friends! They were all super tall...but maybe because they were all wearing platform shoes with gigantic heels...and their mini dresses actually made them look taller. Had I known that I'd be bumping into them, I would've worn my mini dress and high heels para hindi naman ako ma-OP in the washroom. HAHAHA!Ü Anyway, I actually didn't recognize Anne at first since she had heavy make-up on...and it was not one that flattered her looks. I actually think she would have looked prettier sans the heavy make-up...especially her heavily-drawn eyebrows (WOW! That was a lot of "heavy" in one sentence...haha!). But boy oh boy, her nose is super tangos. Very nice indeed.Ü How I wish my shyness didn't get the best of me or else I would've asked for a picture with them...right there in the washroom (well, it was just them, me, my mom, and the cleaning lady)!


Well, well...I just noticed that the last "Random Thought" entry I wrote was more than two years ago, in May 2006. That's a good sign actually seeing as I only make these "Random Thought" entries whenever I don't have anything concrete to write about and when I just want to air out my thoughts to anyone who would listen (or read, in this case). This is actually the first one with a subtitle...I just thought I'd mention that. HAHA!


Before I end this entry, I would like to post a shoutout to my good friend and officemate, Jacky: HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY JACKY! May you have more to come and I wish that the years ahead would be full of happy memories and pleasent surprises! My ultimate wish for you is...well, we both know what that is...no need in letting the whole world know about it.Ü Pag nagkatotoo na lang, that's when I'll mention it here.Ü Again, Happy Birthday! Enjoy your BL/LTO license renewal day...hehe!
