Dayang/ Joanna / Pauie


I'm trying to sleep.

But my brother had to turn on the pc and tempt me. Nothing to post. But I've just finished composing this from my room. Yeah, a meme. It takes concentration.

Tagged by my fave twins, pips_n_chiaw

Rules of the Game

A) People who have been tagged must write their answers on their blogs and replace any question that they dislike with a new question formulated by themselves.

B) Tag eight people to do this quiz and those who are tagged cannot refuse. These people state who they are tagged by and cannot tag the person whom they were tagged by. Continue this game by sending it to other people.

1. How has LJ changed your life?

I didn't care for phones before, but now I want my camera phone so I can picspam regularly, since I can't always charge the family camera.

There's also these memes. I do love them. They take so much time. *grins* They make you think, too. And of course, the communities! It's wonderful. Met new friends!

2. What do you do before bedtime?

Read the Bible to flush out the smut I've read previously and then pray. If I'm in dutiful daughter mode, I also cook rice for breakfast, since my bedtime is breakfast time.

I'm fixing my bedtime. I have to.

3. What will your dream wedding be like?

It will be small but elegant. My bridesmaids wearing gowns I've designed, the parents and godparents wearing the same colors, (I haven't decided on the motif yet. Hmm...), all my favorite cousins there, my groom so in love with me... Ugh, see what this silly question did.

4. What object would best describe you?

Hmm, I can't think. This kind of question needs objectivity. And is there an object that doesn't absorb sounds but is so noisy in a silent way? Did that make sense? /headdesk

5. Have you ever had your heart broken?

Nope. I haven't risked my heart this way yet. Like, entrusted it to someone? No. But things happened. They were heartbreaking. My godmother died. And that time it sunk in that I have to live in a silent world.

6. Which is more blessed, loving someone or being loved by someone?

I've answered this question before, haven't I? Being loved. Because being blessed means being happy. And you're not always happy when you love someone, do you? If he doesn't love you back?

Awhile ago, this meme made me sappy. Now, it has got me depressed.

7. Do you trust easily?

I know who to trust. I know how to sift through trustworthy and untrustworthy people because I went through that phase of badness.

8. If the person you secretly like is already attached, what would you do?

Pray on. Nothing's final until death. Haha. If he's not for me, of course I'll be able to move on. That will be included in the prayer, of course.

9. Is there anything that has made you unhappy these days?

My mom and dad's menopausal and andropausal (respectively) wars.

10. Is there anything that has made you really happy these days?

My dad's homecoming (which includes my phone and my bike!). Though the cleaning is a damper.

11. Is being tagged fun?


12. How do you see yourself?

Both honestly and a little too positively.

13. Who are currently the most important people to you?

My parents, my brothers and sister, my best friends. In this order.

14. What kind of person do you think the person who tagged you is?

They're persons. Twins I admire for their bond, for their warmth and for their intelligence. In this order. I think they'll be featured in Proudly Filipina in the near future.

15. Would you rather be single and rich or married but poor?

If I'm poor when I'm married, I won't bring children into the union. And that will be sad however in love I am with my husband. If I'm rich, though single, I can adopt kids and spoil nieces and nephews. It's foremost in human nature to nurture. I can't do that if I'm poor.

16. How many children do you want to have, if any?

Four. Two in two batches, so they can pair off and be best friends. The older ones can support the younger ones, and the younger ones will keep the older ones young.

17. What's better: to give or to receive?

Giving. But receiving heart-felt little trinkets from friends is lovely.

18. If you fall in love with two people simultaneously, who would you pick?

The one I love more. You always love one more. But the one who loves me back can and will woo me, I'm sure. And who will resist that? If they both love me back, then we're back to my first statement.

19. Would you have 100% safe sex with a stranger for $10,000,000?

Prove to me that it is 100% safe first and then why not? That's ten million dollars. But I'll chicken out at the last moment, I bet. And I bet I won't be convinced it is safe. Hee.

20. Edmund or Caspian?
Uh, Peter.

My replacement questions for the taking (I didn't feel like replacing any, hee:

Science fiction or fantasy?

How many plot bunnies do you have compiled?

I'm always out-of-date with memes. So I tag you who haven't done this yet, oh you darling one in my f-list.


Oh, Gennesareth! I forgot Gennesareth. I have four now, Chiara. Cana, Galilee, Gethsemane, Gennesareth. Thessalonica sounds like it's a car polish brand. Hehe.


If I never knew you
If I never felt this love
I would have no inkling of
How precious life can be!

And if I never held you
I would never have a clue
How at last I find in you
The missing part of me!

In this world so full of fear
Full of raging lies
I can see the truth so clear
In your eyes, so dry your eyes!

And I'm so grateful to you
I'd have lived my whole life through
Lost forever
If I never knew you

If I never knew you
I'd be safe, but half as real
Never knowing I could feel
A love so strong and true

And I'm so grateful to you
I'd have lived my whole life through
Lost forever
If I never knew you

I thought our love would be so beautiful
Somehow we'd make the whole world right
I never knew that fear and hate could be so strong
But still my heart is saying we were right
We were right
And if I never knew you
If I never knew you
I'd have lived my whole life through
Empty as the sky
Never nowing why
Lost forever
If I never knew you.

~the genius of Stephen Schwartz. You never hear his name, though, do you, it's Alan Menken we know. As if the song could 'live' without the words. Writers rock the world. Hee. Along with the composers, yes, yes. Peace.
