after the weekend

Busy weekend now gone. I'm to face another week at work. I went to the New Worlds Christmas Party and had fun. I also got to sleep about 4 hours in the Rosero's comfy couch. Hahaha! I just want to thank the Rosero's and their hospitality. We indeed had fun! It's nice meeting those familiar faces (geeks unite!) again and hearing their stories. Might check out the web if there are pictures of the NWA event. I got home at about 11:30AM after dropping by the nearby mall and bought my Ma's fave donuts and a family-sized pizza for her birthday. I thought I could last the day but eventually fell asleep in the afternoon, woke up at about 8PM to my sister's dismay. I told her we could rent "Fantastic Four" in Video City sicne we both haven't watched it, but since I slept the day away, we didn't get to do that. Probably next weekend. Wow, I can't believe Christmas is just 6 days away. Wow!

One thing from my wish list was crossed out. He (finally!) found a job and I'm very happy for him. At least he's starting 2006 right. :)


Finally watched Peter Jackson's King Kong-- the most awaited film after his "Lord of the Rings" trilogy. He looks thinner now, I wonder why. But even though he's not hobbity-looking anymore, I still am a huge fan.

I love this movie! It's full of great special effects and I noticed a few familiar ones like the natives looking like Tokien's orcs or the island looking like Middle-earth's Mount Doom. The actors are great with Naomi Watts and her cute, two-front teeth (honestly, they are cute!) and her signature scream and of course, how can I forget our very own Gollum? Mr. Andy Serkis himself played both King Kong (using similar special effects as LOTR's Gollum) and Lumpy the Cook. Hats off to you!

I wish they would release the postsecret book here in the Philippines. I have been a fan of that blog and I am thinking of sending a post card of my own too.
