the dark knight

clearly, heath ledger is a runaway winner. sorry na lang sa lahat ng makakalaban niya sa awards this year — i could already see him racking up posthumous awards for this one. unforgettable and scary.

want to know how i got these scars?

shiver, man. shiver.

neck-deep into work. for some reason, things feel a bit tighter than usual. hmmm. read through the president’s state of the nation address last year. a litany of names, mostly.

on other news:

  • oil prices are still spiking, but the peso’s doing a bit better day by day.
  • inflation’s expected to breach 13 percent by october.
  • i am trying to lose weight by the end of the year.
  • we’ve been together for ten solid months.
  • i’ve been cigarette-less for more than 5 months now.
  • i can’t write anything other than what is necessary, which is sad.

don’t look back: on loving annabelle (2006)

Sunday, January 14th, 2007

last year i posted the dangers flowers’ “all over me” over at my multiply site, and mentioned that it was from “Loving Annabelle,” a movie by Katherine Brooks which carried the intriguing tagline: One teacher. One student. One secret.

last night, some seven months later, i finally managed to get my hands on the movie via a loaned DVD — it was the second movie in my saturday three-movie marathon night, the first one being tere’s “Bend it Like Beckham” (i will rave about this and keira’s abs some other day) and the other one being “Girl Interrupted”.

and can i just say it was actually ill-advised of me to watch Loving Annabelle alone? and not just because erin kelly (and a few scenes) were too hot to be handled in all my alone glory, but really. thank goodness for cigarettes and having the room to myself anyway (sorry krista, i hope the odour’s gone when you come back.)
