a few hours ago, i started calling random beautiful people from manila.. a lot of the bastards weren't home.. and it didnt help that the people who answered the phone couldn't get my name. "tell them that gopez called." dima, er, maits, joy.. tangina san kayo napunta? i got to talk to ther and tray though. i miss you guys. boo!
this is awesome. if i stay up a little longer, i'll probably go blind from the monitor. i feel light headed and slightly dizzy. this is what the summers are all about.. ahhh, festive intellectual decomposition in the comfort of your own room. the nights are mine, yes..
tomorrow i'm heading over to andre's house to watch "takeshi's castle".. this late 80's japanese show where a horde of rice eaters try to compete against being eliminated.. its ridiculous. they're running across mazes and trapdoors, they eat shit running fullspeed into wooden walls disguised as doors, and trip on fake "rocks" in a pathway through water.. these asians man. what kooks. ;)
these reality checks make you count your blessings, and plant your feet back on the ground. the material things we have are nothing, against the love that binds family and friends together. hope all you guys take care.. and tell your parents you love them :)
by the time we were shuttling around the bay area cities, i suddenly realized the futility of having ponts as a navigator. of course, i'm not saying that to bag on her. it's just surprising to find someone else aside from me who has no sense of direction.. well actually, she can read a map just as fine as anyone else. for some reason though, we just got lost everytime we tried to go somewhere - even back home.
on saturday i went to kathlyn's graduation at the ignatius church. it was really gorgeous inside, and once you step in, you won't be surpised that the institution is run by jesuits. we pigged out on a six-course morroccan bad-ass meal afterwards that left my stomach in a coma. the whole trip seemed like a cycle of eating, sleeping and getting lost driving. before we set out for LA, ponts and i bought a box of krispy kremes, and a bag of reese's and oreos. spell o-i-n-k?
i was really glad to see nannoo and sarah, but on the drive back home, it made me sad to think that we're on the cusp of a major change.. i'll never see nannoo walking around LMU again.. and that means she'll never harass me in public. and that's always good. but i'll miss it in a weird way.. *bite*
just came back from brasil.. i had probably one of the best vacations in the world! amazing beaches, perfect weather, lots of food, and perpetually gorgeous brazilian girls. and travelling with andre was just sick! oh, and at the airport he asked this girl who was at a snack stand, "how much are your nuts?"
i'm stuck at home right now. stuck at home without internet access. how crappy is that? how am i supposed to survive? i have to drive all the way to my sisters house to check mail.. oh wait, my e-mail conked out along with my domain name.. well, this is subtle karma against brazil with andre. but i'm still not complaining. Ü
yesterday, had an interesting run through of LMU. i sat on the "L" of LMU out on the bluff, and i got bored so went out to do my "run" at the sunken gardens. thank god tom was there to document the occasion. i doubt that anyone would want to see those pictures though. yikes.
i will be gone for awhile. tomorrow i'm leaving for brazil.. and then when i get back i'll be off to SF with ponts to visit bay area friends and cheer for kathlyn at her grad (poor schmuck needs a fan club). until the next time.. adios, amigos and muchacha lindas.
i know what i want to do over the summer. i know what i want to do. its just a matter of selecting which one of them i choose to do first. the world is waiting for me, and i'm not too worried about anything else falling into place, cos it seems like it is for now. to think of it, everything is always in place anyway.. its just that some parts move around. its all relative, eh? i guess it's always just a matter of what you make things to be.. you are, the ambassador to your own world.
