the barefoot baklesa's Top Ten Blahs [001]

10. I never realized how 'broth for brains' [utak sabaw in the vernacular] i was until i went out of the way into the other end of the metropolis only to get distracted and forget why i went there in the first place.

9. Oh yeah, Sidney the perfume boy is really gone...been passin by the ubiquitous mall in makati these past few days and i guess it's for real

8. I bought a few more books...a few more books unto the pile that i'm supposed to be reading...and boy is that pile growing.

7. I find it unusual how some people really get engrossed by someone's new nose-job. I guess the surgeon is really that good.

6. Mamma Mia IS THE BEST!!! The entire cinematic experience was such a trip; it's either i was too ecstatic, or i was singin to the songs, or was emotionally taken by meryl streep's rendition of "the winner takes it all".

5. After what seemed like an eternity, i went out on a date last sunday...and with someone my age. Pao was such great company, and the braces added to the appeal... Actually, i was a bit tired so i dozed of every now and then watchin 'the dark knight'

4. Damn these pea-brained posers!!! Your uppance will come...

3. I don't understand why people take their own lives...the 'dark night of the soul' dramatics don't appeal to me anymore. Bitter slice of reality, though...tito arnel, may you find your way into the light in a better afterlife where salvation is still an open door.

2. You know how much of a great friend you have when even at a family tragedy, she thinks of you and reminds you not to be a gay suicide statistic. Maraming Salamat, princess of middle earth!

1. Theater Down South is now a year old!!! Happy Anniversary to Us!!!

...that's it for now

"Sidney the Perfume Boy"

on the way home today, i decided to pass by that ubiquitous mall in makati to buy myself an umbrella, again...it's my 4th umbrella since the start of the rainy season. really now, i don't know what it is with me and losing umbrellas. i think it began when i lost that fine wooden handle one my uncle got for me in london; and since then i have been losing one after the other since 2001!

but that's not really why i'm blogging...

On my way down, i decided to pass by the perfume area of the department store to see if Sidney, one of the perfume boys, was there.

I think it was around march earlier this year when i met Sidney: I was lugging around a newly bought toolbox and some tools when i decided to pass by their section [ i know, i have it bad, right? i actually remember the details! whahaha! ].

Sidney was fair, he had these eyes that gazed at you like 'he's so happy to see you'...and these lips that were just about right. Oh man...

Since then, i would pass by there every chance i got. And i was shamefully flirtatious [ argh! confessions... ] -can you blame me?

The last i saw Sidney the Perfume Boy was about three weeks ago. I just came from the foreign exchange counter and when i took a turn, there he was with those eyes...and just as i was walking towards that area, my phone rang and i had to take the call.

I couldn't make heads or tails of it, but i never did reach Sidney's display case that day...

The other day i passed by, anticipating those eyes, and he wasn't there. And just this evening, still no sign of him...

And the song 'taylor the latte boy' was playing in my head as i walked past...

Oh well, that's just the way it is...
