Not Nice

Posted in Musings with tags , on 28 February, 2011 by Ed

Sometimes I’m nice but when I’m not nice, I’d rather you leave me alone.

Not Nice by Chris Garneau (from his album “Music for Tourists”.)

Always so still.
I never will be like you
And you never will strike me better.

It’s always so clear.
You never really hear at all
And I fear that you won’t get better.

When you’re not being nice,
You’re not nice,
You’re not nice,
You’re not nice,
I’d rather leave you alone.
I’d rather leave you alone.

You’ve been quiet for so long.
If something was wrong, you’d never say a word,
So I know that you won’t get better.

That’s your fifth drink.
Don’t you think that’s a lot?
Considering we’ve only been here for a little while now?

When you’re not being nice,
You’re not nice,
You’re not nice,
You’re not nice,
I’d rather leave you alone.
I’m gonna leave you alone.

Always so still.
I never will be like you
And you never will strike me better.

Sometimes you’re nice but
When you’re not nice,
You’re not nice,
You’re not nice,
You’re not nice,
I’d rather leave you alone.
I’m gonna leave you alone.
That’s all.


Hello 2011!

I feel that you are justified in looking into the future with true assurance, because you have a mode of living in which we find the joy of life and the joy of work harmoniously combined. Added to this is the spirit of ambition which pervades your very being, and seems to make the day’s work like a happy child at play. – Albert Einstein

Happy New Year everyone! Here’s to a better humanity! 🙂

Not really sure if Christmas meant something for me anymore, one thing I like about it though, is that family come together. I am not a very family-oriented person but I like seeing families get the most of it.

So to anyone celebrating, hope you are having a happy Christmas! 🙂

30 and Orbiting..

Posted in Musings on 9 November, 2010 by Ed

It’s my 30th year on the planet today, time flies when so many things happened around you. But without a doubt, I am happy to be alive. I know it doesn’t mean much, doesn’t mean anything at all.

I wanted to acknowledge all the people, who made me who am I today, especially my dear friends. I am not really a family-oriented person, but to complete myself, my ever wish is to meet my “real” mother. I know that when I meet her, I don’t really know what to say, except to thank her, for allowing me to be in this world.

The highlights of my 30 years in the planet are roaming parts of the world without even dreaming of it, meeting my wonderful friends because of music and having a beautiful boy inspite of it all. I could not ask for more.

Kudos to life and the universe! Happy Orbit to ME! 🙂

muscle up!

So yesterday, my friend Cam & I decided to finally enrolled in a gym near her place, we’ll try it for a month and see how we go. Cam, would like to trim down and i’d say i’d like to tone my body some more, so yeah we paid the 800 pesos monthly due, I thought it was cheap enough.


Today was our first session, and I’d say it was alright. Our instructor who happened to call himself, Love was helpful enough. Cam hit the treadmill & I hit the weights, strangely enough I didn’t remember “warming up” first, which was not pointed by the so-called instructor, but pointed out to me by my very dear friend Jac, who had a history in going to gym. Well the point is, the 800 pesos didn’t include “private instruction”, so I can’t really complain. Now I know.

And no, I’m not turning into a mascula-doll or “gym bunny”. :p

Two days ago, I organised my second Alanis Morissette FoE party, the Rockla Edition.

(Rockla means gay people who likes rock music). There were quite a few people who express interest but of course, only one or two of them confirmed on the actual day of the event, so for practical sake, I put it off for next year and instead turn it into a different kind of party. I invited Cam whom I’ve met 5 years ago online, digging the same interest and that is Alanis, it’s funny because it took us a few years to really hit it off as buddies.

So I told Cam what happened, and so we opted for “party no. 2”, which is to hang out and talk/listen about Alanis. We were later joined by a friend Mikhel, whom is not-so-familiar with Alanis, and so we don’t have a choice but to have him swallowed a Jagged Little Pill, hahaha. It’s fun to see how he melted his inhibitions and how the three of us became at home in this high five. And yeah, we were giggling again for no reason. 


Fast forward to a few hours later, we were joined by Cam’s friends who came and brought some firewater, and yeah we been on the sauce for an hour or so. It was nice though, sometimes you just need to stop being in fine fettle and drink like someone under the table.


Thanks to Basol, Martin, Alden, Mike and Cam for sharing this wicked jollification. 😉

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.
