i came to know your blog through E. impressive. done in good taste. :)

resisting this dialogue: "oh master loudcloud, i beseech thee to anoint me to be thy loyal, subservient apprentice" (ala sean connery and christian slater in the name of the rose LOL.)(oh fuck, flashback - humping scene with that peasant flushed with fever...)

am in between murakami's the wind-up bird chronicle and maguire's wicked. just bought mc ewan's atonement and hosseini's the kite runner. don't raise those eyebrows, i know am so far behind with these books ever since i got exiled to the islands of n*#*#s. i feel am a retard already with my new accent that isn't flattering at all.

dencio padilla! - you've got quite an impressive set reading materials yourself! I bought a DVD of The Name Of The Rose long ago and that christian slater moment really sizzles! hahaha. and he looked really edible in that movie: so magnetic yet boyish. i also loved that scene where the friars debated whether Jesus owned a purse! hahaha.

thanks for leaving a comment! :-)
