Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

Clouds In My Coffee

“I had some dreams, they were clouds in my coffee.” – Carly Simon

* * * * *

I thought I could learn to love you. But it seems that there should be some amount of attraction from the both of us, and not just one-way.

* * * * *

Hands touch, eyes connected, lips parted then sealed together in a kiss. And yet, the attraction was one-sided.

Then again, people can and do contradict themselves.

* * * * *

What does one do when someone you like but doesn’t like you back that way, hooks up with another someone whom you like but also doesn’t like you back that way? Why, encourage the union further, what else? It’s self-punishment disguised as emotional masochism.

* * * * *

You could have been my trophy boy friend, but the attraction seems one-sided. I just wanted coffee, you just wanted to—well, to be fair, I have no idea what you wanted. But I know I want you.

* * * * *

You’re so vain, you probably think this episode’s about you.

Even Carly didn't want to reveal the identity of "vain". Both of you deem 'him' precious.

It sucks when the cream refuses to blend with the coffee. There's no perfect harmony.

Ow.

I would've walked away. Far, far away. But you have a bigger heart than mine, Joel.

And alas, the heart is a lonely hunter.

McVie,

Looks like someone is still trying to figure out what happened. Or didn't happen. =)

"You could have been my trophy boy friend." --- At may ganito????????????????????

On another note:
Hey honey, it was good to see you last weekend. Nobody does Malate like we do, eh? =) Happy birthday McVie. I'm glad we became friends.

Love,
Kane

@PETER: Precious... Hipolito.

@MKSURF8: Once you go black, you never go back.

@ANTEROS: How about both?

@CARRIE: Then again there's always milk. =)

@MRCENS: What?! May pictures na? Saan?

@RUDEBOY: Man, your comment sounded like something Kane would say, ahahaha!

@KANE: Love you too, friend! And I'm glad I dragged the guys into O Bar, hahaha.

Some things can be figured out, some things refuse to be figured out. Besides, who says this particular episode is about just ONE person? =)

@McVie and Rudeboy:

I was actually going to make a comment about what Rudeboy said. And yes, it's so strange. Carson McCullers , isn't it mon cher?

I love her The Ballad of the Sad Cafe.

"The beloved fears and hates the lover, and with the best of reasons. For the lover is forever trying to strip bare the beloved."

You keep surprising me, Rudeboy.

How strange.

Kane

Yes it is so don't let the negative thoughts linger within or else, emotional suicide might occur.

@Kane

The McCullers reference wins rudeboy 50 points in my book. Well done!

Extra 50 though if he got the reference from a certain Scarlett Johansson movie.

And, mcvie. Another year, another chance to break the cycle, re-assess, travel to earthward. Anything can happen.

If it affords you any comfort, you'll always have us--soju, too ^_^
