She’s gorgeous and I love her accent. And also, this:

How does she not crack up? The ending is definitely the best part. That face! Hahaha

I had the weirdest dream last night. I won’t name names, but it involved some of my closest guy friends.

In my dream, this close guy friend (don’t even try to guess who it is, it’s not who you think) of mine and I had started dating. But he was such a jerk, not at all like how he is as a friend now. We broke up and he was such an asshole about it, like saying things that only really jerk-y guys say. I was crying to another guy friend about it and he was comforting me. Then he went to talk to the jerk about it and I went up to my room where our maid (one who already left us a long time ago in real life) was changing bed sheets. I peeked out my window and they were right below it, sitting by the wall across my window. My guy friend, my supposed jerk of an ex, and another guy friend (to be honest, I can’t remember who the 3rd guy friend was) were all drinking beer. Then, the first guy friend looked up at my window and grinned like an idiot and made a hand gesture to let me know that he knows I’m watching them. Then I just went to my bed and cried there.

It was just so weird, that when I woke up, I didn’t even feel bad. You know how sometimes you wake up from a dream where you were crying and you’re really sad? Not this time, it was more like ‘wtf, subconscious?!’ I know they say that the people in our dreams are actually just representations of ourselves. So maybe deep deep deep down inside I’m just an asshole?! Hahaha

Man, how tired was I last night?!?

Well, 2 birthdays and 1 anniversary.

Last Saturday, we celebrated 3 occasions: mine and my brother’s birthdays and my parents’ 29th anniversary. The party was held at 121 Restaurant & Bar in Pasong Tamo Extension, which is owned by a family friend. I seriously did not expect to have that much fun.

Ok, most of my high school friends weren’t there, which really bummed me out. But those who came were my closest and dearest friends. My college friends were mostly complete, plus a few surprises here and there. Hahaha! M12 people were also there, excepting the big M (his brother graduated that day, so they had a family thing). And of course my beautiful family. Having all of them there made it the best celebration I’ve ever had.

Well, that and the booze!!

The early UBE people (+ Zy, who's an official UBE girl now)

I love my cousins so much

Well, well, well! The big disappointer dropped by.

but I just had to blog about it.

I get emails from the Care2 Petition Site sometimes and I sign petitions. But I was so appalled by what I learned from the latest petition that I had to let others know about it. It was about the “Corrective” Rape cases in South Africa. Apparently, they have been raping lesbian women in an effort to “cure” them.

Story:

A new ActionAid report describes the shocking rise of “corrective” rape in South Africa – in which South African lesbians are being raped in an effort to “cure” them of their sexual orientation. Support groups in Cape Town say they see 10 new cases of “corrective” rape every week. And it’s even more widespread around the rest of the country.

Many perpetrators of rape already go unpunished in South Africa, but the situation is even worse for lesbian women. Indeed, 31 lesbian women have been murdered in homophobic attacks since 1998, but in only one of these cases has there been a conviction.

Although South Africa’s constitution recognizes rights of gay and lesbian people, its legal system does not view crimes committed against gay and lesbians on the basis of sexual orientation to be hate crimes. The South African legal system must recognize “corrective” rape as a hate crime in addition to a rape in order to establish a greater punishment for this brutal and widespread act of sexual violence. Urge South African President Kgalema Motlanthe to deem “corrective” rape a hate crime (by signing this petition)!


It’s my brother’s birthday today! Wish him a happy birthday everyone! 🙂

disappointing.

Yeah, aren’t I just the most articulate person you know?

This whole thing about my birthday celebration is just taking its toll on me. Before, it was a problem of not being able to invite everyone, of some of my closest friends not being able to make it, of maybe having my monthly visitor and not being able to swim that weekend. Now that the plans have changed and I’ve gotten the celebration that I really wanted in the first place (a simple party with booze and friends), another disappointment comes pouncing on me. And what a disappointment.

I really hate that the more you care for someone, the more disappointed you get by them. I mean, yes, I understand. She needs to get away, she’s suffering from a broken heart. I can’t just ask her to forget about her pain to celebrate my birthday with me. What kind of a friend would that make me? But in the 23 years that I’ve had birthdays, I’ve only had big celebrations twice. Once was on my debut, and now this. She didn’t make it to my debut. And now this.

I know, I know. I sound like a selfish little brat. Poor little girl, can’t be with everyone she wants on her birthday. But that visitor finally came last night and I think I’ve been a good enough person to have the right to throw tantrums once in a while.

Madness? THIS. IS. AUDREEEEEYYY!

Hahaha! I may have lost my marbles. Anyway, the other day I decided to take pictures of my Audrey Hepburn stuff. I had just gotten The Audrey Hepburn Treasures book as a gift from my mom (sort of) and I was really happy with it. So yeah…


DVDs: Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Funny Face, Roman Holiday, Charade, Paris When It Sizzles and Sabrina
Books: Audrey Hepburn Treasures (the ginormous one) and Enchantment
From Madz: Calendar and postcards. 🙂

If you want to see other pics (including some of the pull-out stuff from AHT), there’s more after the jump.

Sasha…

Is in her mid-20s. Is a girl. Loves to write. Loves taking pictures. Vents a lot. Finds her days too boring. Finds herself too sheltered. Wants to meet a faerie, for real. Swears a lot. Knows that's bad. Just might have too dirty a mind.
