1. i don’t wear jeans that much. i prefer wearing skirts or dresses. i’ve always found it hard to shop for jeans because i’m a petite girl (5’1”) with child-bearing hips (37”). skirts and dresses hide my big hips so well that people are shocked when i tell them my measurements.

2. a part of me still yearns to be a broadway star. however, i have no formal vocal or acting training and have a sad case of stage fright which unfortunately doesn’t bode well for a career in the stage.

3. i really don’t have any career plans although i enjoy my job right now. i’ve always seen myself as a housewife, not that i’m lazy or that i don’t want to work, being a full-time mom is the closest to my idea of fulfillment.

4. i’m 25 and a member of the the SSB (Single Since Birth) and NBSB (No Boyfriend Since Birth) Clubs. more often than not i’m fine with my status but there are moments of insecurity and insanity when i question what the hell is wrong with me?

5. i love reading racy novels. i am as familiar with romance novel authors and books as i am with poetry and literature by DWM (dead white men).

6. my favorite feature in my body is my hair. i love the fact that it’s naturally wavy. i haven’t done any experimenting (i.e. perming, straightening, coloring)  with it yet because i’m so scared it’ll lose it’s natural wave. my breasts are probably my friends’ favorite feature in my body. tsk tsk tsk.

7. i can’t take chocolate in large doses, meaning i couldn’t eat an entire chocolate bar to save my life. i was allergic to it when i was younger so i never developed the “normal” craving for it. i love it in it’s saturated forms though: chocolate drinks, chocolate ice cream, chocolate cake.

8. when i’m happy (about anything at all) i tend to smile at random strangers, sing my current favorite song out loud and talk to myself. when i’m happy people may tend to think i’m crazy. hahaha!

9. i love walking. i love the rain. i love walking in the rain.

10. i grew up loving fairytales. i’m totally into woman empowerment. women nowadays can be beautiful, intelligent, powerful and totally independent from men. but deep inside i still believe that each woman deserves to be swept off her feet by her very own prince charming. i’m still waiting for mine. 😉

Got this from my sister:

1. Pick 25 of your favorite movies.
2. Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them on your blog.
4. People should try guessing the movies you put.
5. No cheating!

suprisingly it was hard for me to choose my top 25 favorite movies. anyway, this list isn’t in any particular order and the lines i used aren’t necessarily my favorite. even if you’re just passing by my blog, please do join the game. most, but not all, of the answers of these are found here. enjoy! =)

*so i totally forgot to include 2 of my favorite movies and yes, they have to be on this list!!! hahaha! 😛

** 11/14/2008. Seems like nobody really wants to play so I’ll just answer these myself. hmph!:P

1. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (Ayn)
J: Look at it out here, it’s all falling apart. I’m erasing you and I’m happy!

2. Closer (Tish)
L: I know who you are. I love you. I love everything about you that hurts.

3. Chungking Express (Ayn)
If memories could be canned, would they also have expiry dates? If so, I hope they last for centuries.

4. Ever After (Ayn)
You swim alone, climb rocks, rescue servants, is there anything you don’t do?

5. The Mirror Has Two Faces (Ayn)

6. 50 First Dates (Tish)
There’s nothing like a first kiss.

7. The Girl Next Door (Tish)
M: Moral fiber. So, what is moral fiber? It’s funny, I used to think it was always telling the truth, doing good deeds, basically being a fucking boy scout. But lately I’ve been seeing it differently. Now I think moral fiber’s about finding that one thing you really care about. That one special thing that means more to you than anything else in the world. And when you find her, you fight for her. You risk it all, you put her in front of everything, your life, all of it. And maybe the stuff you do to help her isn’t so clean. You know what? It doesn’t matter. Because in your heart you know, that the juice is worth the squeeze. That’s what moral fiber’s all about.

8. Sabrina (Ayn)
DL: You know, of all the girls I’ve known… and I’ve known some – isn’t that a song? – you’re the only girl I danced with only once.
S: Twice.
DL: What? How could I have forgotten? Was it the champagne?
S: I was eight, and you were taking dancing lessons. I was homework.

9. Roman Holiday (Tish)
At midnight, I’ll turn into a pumpkin and drive away in my glass slipper.
JB: And that will be the end of the fairy tale.

10: The Last Unicorn (Ayn)
Where were you twenty years ago? Ten years ago? Where were you when I was new? When I was one of those innocent young maidens you always come to? How dare you! How dare you come to me now, when I am this!

11. My Best Friend’s Wedding (Lei)
JP: Crème brûlée can never be Jell-O. YOU could never be Jell-O.
KW: I HAVE to be Jell-O!
JP: You’re never gonna be Jell-O!

12. Never Been Kissed (Ayn)
Hi, I’m Guy.
JG: Yes, you are a guy. Quite a guy. Oh my. Hey, that rhymes! Yikes. Bikes!
Guy: Are you in special-ed? I mean, are you?

13. West Side Story (Tish)
Juvenile delinquency is purely a social disease.
R: Hey! I got a social disease!

14. Love Actually (Ayn)
[in English] It’s my favorite time of day, driving you.
A: [in Portuguese] It’s the saddest part of my day, leaving you.

15. Sense and Sensibility (Tish)
Can he love her? Can the soul be really be satisfied with such polite affections? To love is to burn – to be on fire, like Juliet or Guinevere or Eloise…
Mrs. D: They made rather pathetic ends, dear. 
M: Pathetic? To die for love? How can you say so? What could be more glorious?
Mrs. D: I think that would be taking your romantic sensibilities a little far.

16. The Mummy (Ayn)
Look, I… I may not be an explorer, or an adventurer, or a treasure-seeker, or a gunfighter, but I am proud of what I am.
R: And what is that? 
E: I… am a librarian.

17. V For Vendetta (Lei) –> Ayn, i can’t believe you didn’t get this!
 I told you, only truth. For 20 years, I sought only this day. Nothing else existed… until I saw you. Then everything changed. I fell in love with you. And to think I no longer believed I could.
EH: But I don’t want you to die.
V: That’s the most beautiful thing you could have ever given me.

18. Bridget Jones’ Diary (Ayn)
BJ: Wait a minute… nice boys don’t kiss like that.
MD: Oh, yes, they fucking do.

19. Sound of Music (Ayn)
I can’t seem to stop singing wherever I am. And what’s worse, I can’t seem to stop saying things – anything and everything I think and feel.
MA: Some people would call that honesty.
M: Oh, but it’s terrible, Reverend Mother.

20. Yentl (Tish)
I can’t believe this, I’m arguing with a woman!
Y: It’s not the first time.

21. The Swan Princess (Ayn)
What else is there? What else is there? She says, “Is beauty all that matters to you?” And you say, “What else is there?”
PD: I know, it was dumb.
R: You should write a book, “How to Offend Women in Five Syllables or Less.”

22. Beauty and the Beast (Lei)
 I want to do something for her… but what?

27. Moulin Rouge (Ayn)
S: What’s his type? Wilting flower? Bright and bubbly? Or smoldering temptress?
I’d say… smoldering temptress.

i’m currently obsessed with…

... victoria's secret lingerie (i really want to buy some and have them shipped here)
... tumblr-ing
... hula-hooping
... learning my old piano pieces again
... expensive stuff i can't afford
... still being kissed ala north & south

That’s the closest to my idea of love: watching the skyline, making out, making mistakes, making believe desire means it’s with somebody else, then breaking up, and, if we’re lucky, forgiveness that comes right before take-off. There, I’ve said it. What more can one want? A lover who loves me as much as the rain. Rain, and, from the opening credits to the closing heart, Gershwin.
~ The Muse This Time by R Zamora Linmark

...the melancholic sound of the cello;
...playing the piano;
...Frederic Chopin, John Williams and Michael Legrand;
...the rain;
...walking in the rain;
...hanging out with my friends;
...being a girly-girl;
...wearing dresses; naturally wavy hair;
...the sound of waves crashing in the shore; and pasta;
...raisin bread;
...Cyrano de Bergarac;;
...Artic Vodka Melon;
...Jose Cuervo Tequila; lomo cameras;
...taking pictures;
...chick flicks that make you believe that finding your one true love is not so impossible; and
...heartwrenchingly beautiful songs that say otherwise
