Rafael Nadal is not playing the grass this year. I was soooo disappointed! Hindi na nga n'ya na-defend 'yung French Open, pati ba naman ang Wimbledon? But then again, that does not change the fact that he is a great player. I just wish he stays out of injuries so people can see him playing Grand Slams more often for the many years to come. Besides, tennis will become boring without him.
Pop Goes the King.
Michael Jackson died on Thursday. I grew up to his music and had tried to emulate his moonwalk. Sheez! Just kiddin' on the moonwalk part. Hehehehe. Well, I assume that he is one celebrity not a single person on earth who is not in a coma does not recognize ( no matter how vague, no matter how demeaning ). So, expect a barrage of news on every media about anything related to the King of Pop.
I have been using the word "probably" so profusely in my correspondence and conversations that I think I am beginning to unuse "maybe". I just love the sound and tone it brings to a message. It seems more high end, tactful and genuinely savoir faire. And, probably very British.
To Renovate Or Rebuild?
I have finally decided not to renovate our family home. Well, just last night since the dilemma started 3 years ago. I was told that renovating is costlier than building a new house. Besides, creativity is limited in renovation. There are just some things you can not do as some parts are almost impossible to change already. So, I called my mother today and told her I want the house destroyed! She was speechless for a while and, knowing that she did not raise a monthly period-stricken b*tch, had to laugh out loud when she realized it was just me being Marvin again. Very up-to-the-moment. I told her they will practically be homeless until the new one is built while I'd be tightening my already tight belt. Still, I'm nothing short of excited!
Quick Round Up.
My friend Bessie gave birth last week to a baby boy. I told her how happy I am now that she is a mother. Apparently, she's loving every moment of it! Meanwhile, recently, Jocelyn, a classmate from elementary found me in Dubai through Friendster. It was a long shot from those days but I can still remember how she used to fetch me up to go for Christmas carolling every year. Sheer fun and pure business! Hahaha. Incidentally, through Friendster (again, albeit I don't log in to that social networking site very often anymore) also, I found out that one of my high school classmates, Popes and one of my college schoolmates, Abe (he aptly changed it to Yva, that b*tch! hehehehe) are working in Dubai. Have excitedly spoken with them but haven't met all of them yet so, I guess I'd be looking forward to a busier calendar next month. Oh saints save this blog!
