nold – oo nga, dated na dated ang hairstyles. hehe.
golds – di na ata natin naabutan yan. circa 70s yan eh, 80s na tayo, early 80s. ako ang sharpest recollection ko sa sesame street, ewan ko kung bakit, yung “a cup of flour, a container of milk, a stick of butter.” at ako, proud batibot kid. as in literally, WALA AKONG HINDI NAALALA sa batibot. pati yung “tinapang bangus, tinapang bangus” na song, kaya ko pang kantahin. man, nostalgia trip!
objection, your honor! counsel jae is misleading the jury! the exact quotation is “A LOAF OF BREAD… a container of milk and a stick of butter.” Counsel jae’s attempt to replace “a loaf of bread” with “a cup of flour” is patently seditious and ambitious! Putting bread, butter and milk together, on the other hand, is delicious! 🙂
At thirty, I like that it still takes so very little to make me happy. I like taking long morning walks on a tree-lined street all by myself and watching old couples teach each other tai-chi. I like getting my fingers sticky with drippy drops of ice cream, and then licking them off afterwards. I like bursting into song in public places and will always be secretly in love with Bon Jovi. When I’m sad, I eat spam and watch Sound of Music and then I’m ok again. I like backrubs and Happy Meals and deep kisses and children’s books and white chocolate and salmon sashimi, not in any particular order and certainly not all at the same time (except maybe white chocolate and deep kisses ). I can laugh at myself and do so a lot — I like to think that means I stand on solid ground. I love long rickety bus trips and getting compliments for my cooking. I’m a lawyer who is irreverent towards the law, an activist who likes lacey underwear. I think life is too short to be wasted on perfunctory embraces and cowardice disguised as prudence. I like living and laughing and dreaming and dancing and hoping and forgetting and remembering.
I’m currently in Holland, doing my Masters. I came here in September of 2010, and will be home in December of 2011. I cook my own food now (but still can’t perfect scrambled eggs.)
