I guess you can't really rely on IMDB as the best source of entertainment journalism, or any kind of journalism for that matter. But "Bacon Shaved His Head For Real" as a headline? That's just embarassing. I wonder what the AP Stylebook says about usage of "for real?"

Something's up. A helicopter's been circling my neighborhood for the last hour and it is really getting on my nerves. Maybe one of my drug dealing neighbors got caught again and is trying to get away. Argh, can't sleep!

Je voudrais des crêpes! Je ne veux pas travailler à demain.

Soup du jour! Camembert! Jacques Cousteau! Baguette! Où est le livre? À la bibliotheque. Où est la piscine? Je ne comprends pas. Parlez-vous Français? Non. Fulufafa...ayah.

Okay, chopper's gone. Bed!

1. Give five possible names you could have been given as a child.
Pretty much any name that starts with the letter K would be a good bet. My mother was obsessed.

3. Tell about your fondest memory with your friends.
Rehearsing Act I of A Midsummer Night's Dream for English class in first year and the Cebu/Bohol trip this June with my barkada in the Philippines. All those times spent at Nickel Nickel with OCPAC friends. The road trip. Concert Hall opening gala.

This past weekend: Vegas for Kirstyn's 21st.

It was kind of an odd way to celebrate someone's birthday by not actually hanging out with her at all, except for dinners at a mediocre French restaurant and an overpriced California Pizza Kitchen. And the truth is I don't actually feel bad about it. I guess I feel a bit guilty, but I (or everyone else) wouldn't have had much fun otherwise. Late night clubbing at places with really high cover charges, dress codes, and "skanks first" policies aren't really my thing. Ah well, it's the thought that counts?

I did have a great time with them peeps with whom I spent the whole weekend. It was nice and quiet and relaxing, AND I have money leftover still. That, my friends, is one big hunk of awesome!

Current happenings are beginning to get quite exhausting. I'm crossing my fingers for change soon. Why can't there be more stuff in Orange County?

Happy late birthday, Tin! Aymissyu!
