blue candy boy

Ok am not as bitter as the guy who’s this entry is all about, i guess this is my defensive human side talking, so please bear with me while i spat the vileness in me! 😦

 

You admit it was a “tryst” on your part but for me it’s “not”.
You wanted a relationship, but how long have I known you, a month or two?
You said I’m not smart but why did you like me then, is that mean you’re dumb.
You called me a simian, but what are you — a ophidian.
Oh yes, my English is not good, that I’m aware of, but didn’t you know I’m a malapropism queen. Hahaha.
I’m thankful though, that I’ve met people like you, cos it’s never a dull moment!
I just wish that you would stop hiding behind those words, and confront people instead, because that will be a lot more fun.
And for crying out loud, I didn’t text you because I wanted to remain friends with you, I just wanted to clear the air between you and me, but it looks like I’m clear now that you will never be clear so I’m letting go.
Oh, and go swallow your blue candies and bitter chocolates down, because I will never have a taste of it!
PS: I don’t know why I bother to dedicate an entry about you in my blog, but I guess this is just another way to express my candor. May we both find peace in our lifetime.
PPS: I’m good in borrowing things, and one of the reason why I texted you, is so that I can return the book that you lend me, one way or another.

I missed out on the saGuijo anniversary, which I was planning to go to but because of a friend visiting me for the first time at my place, I opted out of the idea. I rarely get a visitor in my place, not only it’s situated in a dingy area of Pasay, but it’s not exactly a place where people would like to spend their precious time, (okay, maybe I’m being too harsh on my habitation) so I decided to be a good host.
Anyway, I committed myself to go to Lunes sa Yakal gig, and the venue was in Warehouse 135 on Yakal Street. Terno Recordings musicians were the one featured, and although it’s a Monday night, it turned out alright as concluded by Toti – the man behind Terno.
It was nice seeing familiar faces, and one of them is Swissy. Swissy is one of Terno’s talent, and if you have been to saGuijo this past few months you’ve certainly seen or heard her play. She was part of the Hopia Mani Popcorn 2, where she bravely cover Cinderella’s Superstar ng Buhay Ko (Superstar of My Life). Prior to that she already released her first single “How It All Started” both on FM radio and MTV Philippines.
Hanging out with her is painless, cos she’s just so easy to be with. So we talked about this, that, and silly things last night. But I was more than happy to have a copy of her debut CD “She Smiles“, which is out now. If you like listening to The Sundays or Bic Runga, you will probably enjoy this CD like I do. One thing that always grab me in listening to musician is, if they write their own songs and am glad Swissy does.
To have a taste of Swissy’s music, check out her music on myspace.com/swissymusic.
