The Casting Agent

Filed under: Uncategorized — stuckinreverse @ 9:38 am

Me and my sister were about to fall asleep when I asked her, “If ‘Neverwhere’ is going to be made into a movie, who do you think would the cast be?” And that started our musings on who will play who. If you’re unfamiliar with Neil Gaiman’s novel “Neverwhere”, please search Google right now, because I swear — [pauses to ease the crunchy muscles on the neck] — I swear that if I start talking about it, I’ll never stop and you might fall into a coma, at the worst. And that’ll be my fault.

So anyway. Back to the cast me and my sister came up with:

Door – that girl who starred opposite Heath Ledger in “A Knight’s Tale”
Richard Mayhew – that Sid Arthur guy in “Mean Girls”; guy who played opposite Piper Perabo in “Coyote Ugly”
Marquis de Carabas – Antonio Banderas [hands down. amen.]
Hunter – Salma Hayek
Angel Islington – Gwyneth Paltrow
Croup – Colin Pharrell
Vandemar – Hugh Jackman

For the last two, it doesn’t hurt to have good-looking villains. A good come-on for the film. Hehe.

Gawd! Someone give me my own website now! [Sends telepathic message to mom.]

The Bathroom From Hell

Filed under: Uncategorized — stuckinreverse @ 3:24 am

“You die!”

Those are the two words I screamed from the bathroom. I was screaming at the damn toilet bowl. It seriously has issues. One: It leaks. Two: The toilet seat moves around. Even if you try to keep still during a ten-second peeing, it freaking moves! Gawd, I hate that bathroom. Why do guys’s bathrooms always suck? I was going for a shower but found out the water wasn’t running. So I had to get out of the shower stall naked without that clean, fresh feeling. My sister used the bathroom a couple of minutes after I went inside. When she got out, I told her she couldn’t take a shower because the water supply is nil. She told me the faucet was working fine. Water supply was pretty all-out. Well, shit. It’s the bathroom conspiracy against me.

A Stellar Moment Back at Third Grade

Filed under: Uncategorized — stuckinreverse @ 9:48 am

I just finished with my marathon of “Princess Hours” and one particular scene brought back a memory that I have obviously buried deeply at the back of my mind because it was too traumatic and horrifying and embarrassing. But now that I’m twenty-four, I could afford to rehash it and laugh my ass off over it.

It was during thrid grade. Even when I was a child, I always had my head in the clouds. Read: My focus is poor. So naturally, I had mistaken P.E. day. I wore my P.E. shorts underneath my jumpskirt (school uniform) without my mom knowing about it. you see, ma was adamantly against me wearing shorts underneath my uniform. We even got into a heated argument about it. Every one of my classmate wore shorts underneath their uniforms, why can’t I? She said it was not proper and it would be in lousy taste if I did that. So I snuck out on her that one P.E. day, only to arrive in school and realize that it was not P.E. day. It was my first time to wear shorts underneath and I hadn’t counted on it being uncomfortable. So while my Science teacher was lecturing about something I couldn’t remember, I was slowly taking off my now uncomfortable shorts. I was in the front row, right smack in the middle as well. I thought I was being stealth. My shorts were already down my legs when my teacher caught sight of me fidgeting, with my arms hidden behind my desk, basically disappearing. She must’ve sensed something was going on. She immediately cut off whatever she was talking about and, almost barking, asked me what I was doing. I was mortified and could not speak or move for a few seconds. Then I hastily replied I was taking off my shorts. I got into a little bit of trouble after that. sigh First time to wear shorts underneath and I get into trouble. What rotten luck.

The Day of Leaving One’s Brain Up In One’s Ass, Another of Internet Whoring

Filed under: Uncategorized — stuckinreverse @ 6:59 am

When my brother told me [bleep!] was having a baby, “Ouch!” was simultaneous with “He’s going to have a baby girl. Blond.” That was what? A year ago?

Four days ago: I was contented with reconnectiing with the internet whore in me when my brother called my attention to show me photos of [bleep!] holding his baby. Wow. My brother must’ve really left his brain up in his ass, where he can’t reach for it. Showing me those photos was about as useful as getting chewed alive by piranhas. Oh, well. Shrug and go on with the show. O-bla-di, o-bla-da, this is life. It was almost creepy, how correct I was that [bleep!] did have a baby girl. Was it blond? I didn’t notice. (Wait. Do piranhas even chew?)

On with the show: Three days ago: Still indulging the internet whore in me, this time by uploading photos in my Friendster account. There’s thirty-four now. *tap dances… Like I kno how!* Sixteen more to go. Oh, yeah. This Tony guy I met online asked me if I’d like to live in Australia, where he resides, and if I was looking for marriage. Why oh why do guys ask me fall-over-your-seat-in-shock questions only online? But sure, Australia would be a nice place to live in. I told you I could be easily bribed. Ha!

Backasswards

Filed under: Uncategorized — stuckinreverse @ 9:04 am

Shit. I’m twenty-four and I’m still sucking off on my parents. Worse still, I actually enjoy not doing anything. I know my excuse is that the one thing that managed to put a stunt in my future was never my fault. But shit, I could’ve done something to alleviate it. And it’s not that I didn’t try. I worked for six months. But the call center job was too much for me. I dreamed of a des of my own, with pictures and visual ideas tacked on a bulletin board behind me. I wanted to write articles witty articles, eye-opening articles, touching articles. I wanted to have Kate Hudson’s job in “How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days.” Or Jennifer Garner’s in “Thirteen Going On Thirty.” But things happened. Things out of control.

But then that’s no excuse. I really should try to grow up, make it my New Year’s resolution.
