The Benefits of Oregano

Oregano (Scientific name: Origanum vulgare) is also known as Wild Marjoram, Mountain Mint, Origanum, Wintersweet and Winter Marjoram.

A picture began circulating in November. It should be "The Picture of the Year," or perhaps, "Picture of the Decade." It won't be. In fact, unless you obtained a copy of the paper, you probably will never see it.

Tracey Connelley, Baby P's Evil Mom, Shows NO Remorse

I have never been affected by any story as much as Baby P's story has affected me. Yesterday evening, I found myself sobbing twice! I just can't get over the sheer horror of the story.

Baby P's Murderers -- Why Are They Being Protected?

In my country, it has never happened before that the media and the people have been forbidden to actually reveal the names and faces of TC and SB, the murderers of Baby P.

That Winter The Wind Blows Finale: Did Oh Soo Die?

Over the holy week break, I spent the entire four days just watching the 15 episodes of this Korean show. Yes, I am a self-confessed Korean drama addict. I already have my favorite actors and actresses; albeit, I don’t know their names.

The Curse -- as Usual!

Have you ever had one of those days? You know.. when everything seems to be going really really horribly wrong?

I have had those days for the last two weeks. I have been trying to keep it together.. stay tough. But sometimes, i just want to bloody scream my head off and cry like a pathetic banshee.

And you know what's worst?

When you're mistaken for a homosexual!

Those are one of the curses of being tall.

I have had that for years when people would stare at me in awe.. They'd think, "Man! She's tall! She's really tall!" (Never mind the comment: Dakulaon talaga ano?)

I'm bloody 5'8" Not the freaking Eiffel Tower! Goddamned it!

But there they are amazed, and then the next thought would follow, "Perhaps, she's a man.. She's GAY!" Geeze!!!

One night, I was walking while the rain was pouring down, and i had my umbrella pretty close to my face, and i heard someone commented, "Garo man lang talaga babae ano?!"

Bloody hell!

If that doesn't beat all! Imagine?! Being thought of as a man looking quite like a real woman!

Didn't it occured to him that I was genuine?!

Hell no! It's the freakin' height, i tell you! It's always the bloody freakin' height!!!

Why are you laughing?

Drools and more drools

For the longest time, i have drooled over Brad Pitt. Now, sue me for being just like every other woman in the world, drooling over him, but he sure is "delectable". A feast for the eyes! It's funny though that when I watched Mr. and Mrs. Smith, I barely noticed he is there.. I was drooling over Angelina Jolie. Damn! That woman really is somethin' else! Tan-tan (a classmate) though hated the film for the lack of exposure of Ms. Jolie's delicious fanny and everythin' else. Hehehe.

Anyways, as local actor goes.. I drool over Jericho Rosales! Really, He is a walkin-talkin' "sex-appeal-turned-man". He is! To prove this, I present my mother to you:

Fact 1. My mama sneers over the thought of watching movies with actors whose ages range from 28 and below. "Ano ko teenager?!", she would say. Albeit, she watches movies starring her favorite soap opera stars. And if we were able to drag her to the moviehouse, she'd freakin' sleep and snore throughout the movie. The other week though, she and my sister watched that movie, with Jericho, Claudine, and Piolo (the freakin perpetually hangin in the closet guy)..and Mama watched the whole thing! All the while, staring at Jericho, nudging my sister, telling her, "Gwapuhon talaga ano?" hehehe!

Fact 2. My mama is like 56 years old. So, if she'd dream of any stars, it would be like Tirso Cruz or Boyet, right? But guess what? Mama dreamt she was Jericho Rosales' partner in some freakin' movie or soap! She told us the next day, shaking her head over the whole thing sheepishly, while my sister and I was laughing over the whole thing! Hilarious!

Conclusion: Jericho Rosales is hot.

I rest my case.

The irony

See this guy? He is an old man, an old blind man, who earns his way through life by jamming by the Robertson Department Store. Basically everyday he earns like, what? 50 bucks (if he is lucky) for a day.

But my Daddy is a cruel, cruel man. He once told me that this guy is the leader of a syndicate. He accuses this man of forcing the streetchildren to beg for him! Forgive my Daddy, he is a very imaginative man. Daddy talaga o!

La lang, i just find the thought funny. So gotta share it!

all about love

Have you ever loved someone?

You know, really really loved that person?

I have, geeze! so many freakin' times, I'd imagine! It has even become a running joke to Rarye.. the guyFRIENDs.

Back then, I was this idealistic-fairy-tale-kind-a-girl. And I thought I already knew all about it.. Then I got my heart broken..
Then somebody came along, and then I thought, "Now, I think I know much better!"
And then the ass broke my heart, then another ass broke my heart. Freakin' assHoles! Until i hated all those friggin-worthless-asses.

So there I was living my life, free of assess..When one day, He comes along. Quite unexpectedly, I'd say. Then I finally learned that what I knew about love was all worth diddly-freakin-squat!

Because I finally learned all about LOVE.

LOVE is a lot of things. Sometimes, it's sacrifice.

It's about holding back your tears when your tears would hurt him more.
It's about giving him the fried chicken when he wants it.
It's about patience, the ability to understand than to be angry.
It's about commitment, that no matter what curveballs fate throws at you both, you stay.

It is the ability to say "I am sorry, I was wrong"
and it comes with the heart that can say, "I forgive you."

Love comes with the knowledge that you still have a lot to learn. But you want to learn until you have left are memories and a couple of tooth.

Best of all, it teaches you so much about yourself,
that you suddenly want to be a better person..

Mama said I am learning. I guess I am. Baba taught me so much of loving. I guess it's because he has the heart that knows how to give it. And for that I am the luckiest girl in the world.

It's weird though.. Sometimes, I am amazed at how Love becomes you, the person becomes you.. that you think of him first before yourself, but still you are your own person..

And although you live, sometimes, you take your next breath because he does.

Wala lang.. baba is just sick kaya I am not doing so well.. kaya naging senti.

The New PRIEST -- I gotta share this!

A new priest at his first mass was so nervous he could hardly speak. After mass he asked the monsignor how he had done.
The monsignor replied, "When I am worried about getting nervous on the pulpit, I put a glass of vodka next to the water glass. If I start to get nervious I take a sip."

So the next Sunday he took the monsignor's advice. At the beginning of the sermon, he got nervous and took a drink.

He proceeded to talk up a storm. Upon return to his office after mass he found the following note on his door:

1) Sip the Vodka, don't gulp.

2) There are 10 commandments, not 12.

3) There are 12 disciples, not 10.

4) Jesus was consecrated, not constipated.

5) Jacob wagered his donkey, he did not bet his ass.

6) We do not refer to Jesus Christ as the late J.C.

7) The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are not referred to as Daddy, Junior, and Spook.

8) David slew Goliath, he did not kick the shit out of him.

9) When David was hit by a rock and knocked off his donkey, don't say he was stoned off his ass.

10) We do not refer to the cross as the Big T!

11) When Jesus broke the bread at the Last Supper he said, "Take this and eat it, for it is my body", he did not say, "Eat me."

12) The Virgin Mary is not referred to as the, "Mary with the Cherry".

13) The recommended grace before a meal is not: "Rub-A-dub-dub, thanks for the grub, yeah God"

14) Don't refer to Jesus and the 12 disciples, as J.C. and the boys

Is this getting to be a habit?

Being a law student, I cannot help but be updated on the latest ondits on the country’s political crap. There is the looming threat of the possible Parliamentary government. Which I personally think would be better for this country with voters who’d go for the person who made a lot of box-office movie or to those who made the most number of hoops sa PBA. During elections, when I learn that this movie star is on the top, I would just love to have all those stupid voters fall in line so I could smack them. Morons! Pero ano pa nga ba? Mareng Susan is right, every Filipino has a right to his one vote.

Anyways, I still think Parliamentary government would do us well. Sana nga lang, the change would be implemented AFTER I take the bar.

Now, one of the political craps I hate though is the “possible” Edsa. UGH?! The word Edsa has become nauseous to me. I heard that it is being questioned as being a “habit”. Ayaw sa presidente, eh di mag-Edsa! Think about it! It’s like the word Diva. Every freakin’ singer is a freakin’ Diva. Ang Edsa it’s becoming a series of Rambo, or Mighty Ducks, or Batman (the series), o series ng Sponge Bob na walang katapusan! Jesus H. Christ!

I admit, I envy my parents for their vast knowledge and full awareness of Edsa I, and that was rightly so. Edsa II? Well, it was fine with me. I wanted to be there in fact.. But then there was this pathetic attempt of a revolution, even more pathetically dubbed as Edsa 3! Geeze! And Now there is a clamor for Edsa 4! See parang Sponge Bob 4?!?!

My solution: Legal method of ousting the president in accordance with the constitution. Kaya nga nandian yan eh, the “lengthy and talkative Constitution”. Note: Have you ever read the whole freaking blabbing thing in its entirety?! Freakin’ Talk-a-tive talaga!

Anyways, yan lang naman ang opinion ng law student. Naks! If you don’t agree, sue me! Or better yet, eh di mag-Edsa ka mag-isa mo! Panget!
