whale watching dream

i dreamed that i was walking across a long empty terminal with some girl. the terminal walkway had glass walls like an airport and was located high above a large harbor. in the ultra-clear waters below, i saw a big group of blue whales swim into the harbor. i rushed to show my partner the swimming whales. we are so lucky to catch them here! we were quite excited watching them from high above. WAKE.

quitting update: week 9

the official 'quitting' deadline is next week (june 1st). yes people, the end is near. over the past 9 weeks, i've made some progress with this heart. it is reckless and it is stubborn, but it's learned its lesson (i think). woman, i'm quitting you in 7 days... and that's that.

since this quitting is going so well, i decided to add MT to the list too. i am quitting you, love. take care~

so be a good quitter! join the club! and let go!

more pleasures

got tagged by sweet duke.

it’s a great thing to be able to count your blessings, even the simplest ones. instructions: name ten (10) of life’s simple pleasures that you like the most, then pick ten (10) people to do the same. try to be original and creative and not to use things that someone else has already used.

life’s simplest pleasures in my terms…

  1. coffee
  2. good friends
  3. sleeping in
  4. silly chats
  5. holding hands
  6. being there
  7. blue skies
  8. your smile
  9. sing aloud
  10. dreaming

tagging~ christine, jane, cherry, nina, ritzko, mandy, sandy, clearcandy, kay, and dez! so get to it, people! :)

the pineapple adventures...

in the beginning

it started with a long chat and ended with a brief last-minute (no coffee) parking lot meeting. these pineapples travelled 3,000 miles over 5 days through 3 cities on crowded planes in lonely airports just to be with you, woman...

and i'd do it all over again.

i love happy endings. til next time.

on scented-candles

i used to be a vanilla man. vanilla is so smooth and sweet. a great scent for the bedroom (especially with company). but after so many lost vanilla nights, i've learned to let it go. my new love is: verbena. it's so fresh and alive... i've become addicted. in reminisce, there are 3 unique scents that i miss: CY's milky lips so close to me at night, MT's gucci eau de parfum II on her neck and shoulders, and a henri bendel lemon verbena candle lighting up my room.

can you guess which scent still lingers?
what are your favorite candles?

little jumper dream

i dreamed that was sitting in the living room of a house chatting with some friends. as i turned to look out the window, i saw a little girl walking on the neighbor's rooftop next door. she trots to the edge and jumps without hesitation! i was shocked and worried. we all rushed to the window to see what happened. looking out, we were surprised to see the little girl's parents in sky-diving suits floating with her through the clouds. it looks like a sky-diving lesson. i guess we must be very high up! the girl floats down to the ground safely with her family. its all ok. WAKE.

spilled-water dream

i dreamed that was i attending a credit union function at a big banquet some place. i had to help out the staff with something, but got clumsy and spilled some water all over my shirt. i quickly walked to the bathroom to clean up the mess, trying to avoid the guests on the walk. back at the main table, i sat down next to MT for dinner. she asks me if i saw CY in the crowd. she said that CY was here with some older guy. i did not see them on the walk, and muttered: 'great, rub it in...' i continue to eat with MT, but i had this feeling that she did not care about me. she was more interested in the food... i told her to eat more, its a buffet, but then she declines... WAKE.

suicide kitkat dream

i dreamed that this little girl was committing suicide by eating a poisoned kitkat bar. as she ate it, she had to decide if she wanted to stay forever on earth as a spirit trapped in the fridge near someone she loved or disappear and be forever gone. she eventually decides to stay because of her attachments and starts to eat the poisoned kitkat. she chomps down hard with tears in her eyes and with her last bite she had to make sure that the kitkat gets stuck in her throat a certain way so that her soul would get sucked directly into the correct fridge. she does it right and becomes forever trap there waiting and watching over her loves. the fridge door closes. the image slowly pans-out. fade to black. WAKE.

-i got called a 'coffee-whore' tonight... and it made me blush. i guess that explains why i was sitting on the sidewalk in front of a closed starbucks chatting (IM) with a sweet sexy stranger at 11:30pm. where's my pimp? same time, same place? :)

-i washed/waxed the car (lily) on sunday and it did NOT rain! but as fate would have it~ i drove to the gym at 10:30pm and ran through a red-dirt mudslide at the gulch along the way. * sigh *

-i went to border's yesterday to check-up on my chinese horoscopes for the year... heck , its been 4 months already in 2006 and i need some good news. but i couldn't find the books anywhere and i was too ashamed to ask. i walked out with 2 robert kiyosaki 'rich dad, poor dad' books instead on the spree. in a moment of inspiration, i decided to totally bypass this current broke-state and aim straight for the riches. yippie!

-mark your calendars: the honolulu U2 concert has been (tentatively) re-scheduled for december 9th! with or without you?

-i'm gonna try to blog daily here for the month of may. so get your neko daily, people! it's gonna be juicy~ cheers!
