“I know I’m lazy with the little things”

Ba Be Bi Bo Bu

Filed under: Uncategorized — stuckinreverse @ 10:24 am

I am going to be faced with another tough thirty minutes (if I’m lucky) of my life later tonight. Tough meaning…? Meaning this: Teaching my five year-old nephew to read. I have the suspicion he’s hyperactive but I’m keeping my mouth shut about it, lest I want to incite chaos in our household. Trying to hold his focus is like pulling out a tooth with a thread and a doorknob. Only the tooth is, like, a bazillion times cuter. How hard could it be to teach a five year-old how to read? You might ask me that. Let me give you a few instances on how hard it was:

01. I told him “F” sounds like “fa.” I drilled it into his head, saying “fa fa fa fa fa!” countless times. When I ran out of breath, he looked at me with those sweet, wide dark eyes and said, “Like fart?” And then he made a farting sound with his lips against his arm. That kid, he’s going to kill me, I swear.

02. I pointed to him H. I said, “This is letter H, okay? H as in ‘ha’!” To which he promptly replied, “Ho ho ho! Like Santa Clause?” And then he proceeded to sing, “Jingle bells, jingle bells…” He didn’t give me any time to cut him off until he finished the song.

I’m ready to quarantine both of us in a cave, where the walls would be painted with alphabets. And if he still prefers to pick imaginary dirt on his nails, I would haul him off to the mountains, find a waterfall and toss him there. While he’s falling, I’m going to yell, “You’re falling! Faaalling. F-f-f-falling. What letter is that and what sound?” Maybe that will get through to him.

Say, does anyone here know a site which gives out a free Conor Oberst layout? Or even just layout graphics? I could just code it myself. Please, leave a comment if you know someone. Thanks right now, sent to the future! =)

P.S. I would like to thank Jen for her comment regarding my poem. That’s one of the nicest, nicest things anyone ever said to me, online and offline. Thank you, Jen! *gives you a gum*

Oh So Emo

Filed under: Uncategorized — stuckinreverse @ 9:39 am

This was me minutes and minutes ago: I’m sitting all alone in my cousin’s worse-for-wear yellow jeep with a can of Coke Light beside me. Nothing. Just wasting ass space, really. So I walk back to the house moments later after realizing that staring at the stars is far from romantic and that it hurts my neck like hell instead. Inside I go, and I meet my cousin’s husband along the way. He asked me if our water tank was making some noises (which means it’s finally working). I rather shouted “No!” Not because I hated his guts. More of the need that I had to speak loudly due to the thoughts whirlpooling in my head. They topple one another in such a loud, crowded mess. I needed to usurp them. Thus, the reply I gave, which made it seemed like I had earphones stuck in my ears and couldn’t hear the end of the world coming even if my life depended on it.

Well, Happy Valentine’s Day to you, whoever is reading this! =)

There. See? I’m not bitter. My parents are even more disappointed than I am that I still don’t have a boyfriend. Sorry, folks. The fruit of your loins just isn’t mainstream enough to catch a bastard who would show up at home and during family whatcrap.

P.S. I give up. There is just no decent free website with free PHP and MySQL. I just need to pool some cash and buy one. Or be a livewire and beg (bug) my parents until their only option is to buy me one. I got a couple of layouts stashed but none I want to use at the moment. I want to make a Conor Oberst layout but… *sob* The computer’s still dead. Stupid rat. Oh stupid rat. If you’re wondering why I’m blaming the rat, that’s a story I’d have to save for later. I think I’d chalk it up as the kind of story you tell you grandkids. That is if I ever marry.

Holy s**t! They butchered the Conor picture!!

Which super-hot male musician is your boyfriend?

Your boyfriend is CONOR OBERST of BRIGHT EYES.

Something To Do On the 14th

Filed under: Uncategorized — stuckinreverse @ 8:52 am

Last night MTV showed “40 Most Awesomely Bad Love Songs…Ever” and it was done with such wit that I stalled my night bath for about half an hour. I learned today that there is going to be a re-run of that on Feb. 14. *yay!* And because I doubt I am most likely to get asked out for Valentine’s Day, I marked that show on my calendar. And I’m thinking of having a DVD marathon as well. I should stack up on chips and drinks, too. *makes a note on that* And unless that hot neighbor of mine shows up on my doorstep with boxes of chocolates and asks me out, then there’s no way anyone could put me out of my couch potato mode that day. If it’s not that hot neighbor, then Conor Oberst. What? Stranger things had happened in my quirky life.

Because I Didn’t Feel Like Giving In To A Bad Mood

Filed under: Uncategorized — stuckinreverse @ 8:52 am

I’ll speak in monotone and you
Will clap your hands just to
Ease the gray.
The cigarette stick in your hands
Never looked so poetic
It’s just like that time when
The mid-afternoon sunlight hit
The rushing river and breathtaking rocks
The view I have of you is silken
I feel like stealing you away
And am I not stealing time
Just staring at you?

I will speak in barely a whisper
And you will cock your head just to
Catch half of my confabulation
Oh, what a stellar act to this dreary night
Your smile doesn’t soothe your face
And that’s all right; you look perfect anyway.

You shake your head and wring your hands
And I keep my thoughts to myself this time.
We walk away with amplifiers
And a thousand unsaid things.

[“A Thousand Unsaid Things”]
* This was written by me. Don’t steal. Although, gosh. I don’t know why anyone would be retarded enough to do that. I mean, I’m a nobody, after all. Anyway, just don’t steal my crap.
