Treinte Juillet

Was it just last night?
has it been that long?
I can never tell.
Maybe because
The more I have you
The more I need you
Like a caged beast
crazed by hunger,
craving flesh


Not even you can end
What even I can't stop.

To My Girlfriend,
Happy Anniversary...

I know you have internet access there...

I know you can read this...

"Better Than Me"

I think you can do much better than me
After all the lies that I made you believe
Guilt kicks in and I start to see
The edge of the bed
Where your nightgown used to be
I told myself I won't miss you
But I remember
What it feels like beside you

I really miss your hair in my face

And the way your innocence tastes

And I think you should know this

You deserve much better than me

While looking through your old box of notes
I found those pictures I took
That you were looking for
If there's one memory I don't want to lose
That time at the mall
You and me in the dressing room
I told myself I won't miss you
But I remember
What it feels like beside you
I really miss your hair in my face
And the way your innocence tastes
And I think you should know this
You deserve much better than me
The bed I'm lying in is getting colder
Wish I never would've said it's over

And I can't pretend...

I won't think about you when I'm older

Cause we never really had our closure

This can't be the end
I really miss your hair in my face
And the way your innocence tastes
And I think you should know this
You deserve much better than me
I really miss your hair in my face
And the way your innocence tastes
And I think you should know this
You deserve much better than me
(And I think you should know this)
(You deserve much better than me)

I'm Sorry Ayheen...

Junior Inquirer, Sunday Edition, July 22, 2007

Dear Sage,

Yesterday you received a phonecall from the Inquirer informing you that your interview with their paper has been published. I tried in vain to download the part where your picture is from the Inq7 website. In the end we were able to see the Newspaper when we went to the Inquirer office in Mega mall right after we parked the car on the fourth floor to get our grocery. The guy at the front desk was kind enough not to give me an odd look when I asked for a copy of the sunday edition of their broadsheet when it was already 7:30 in the evening. He even gave us the newspaper for free when he learned that people from his office called you up about the picture/interview.

Salamat Vince!

Here's what you said in your first interview with the print media:

"I'm a pet lover so I like "My Little Pony" (book) I pretend that the pony in the book is mine because in real life I only have a guinea pig"

Actually, you told us that that wasn't a verbatim quote. The part where you supposedly said that you wish the pony's yours is editorialized. Thank God! San ako kukuha ng kabayo kung nagkataon?

Masanay ka na sa Media, Anaki. Freedom of the Press is Freedom of Speech. Just remember when you grow up that abuse of speech to hurt innocent people isn't Freedom-- It's simply chismis. Sana'y maging Brodkaster kayo at hindi chismosa.

Grade 1, Grade 2

Sabine Ayn

Dear Sabine, you dressed up your stuffed toy this morning and named it "little Mimzy". I think you were inspired by the video you watched with Ate Sage last week with the same title. You're so proud of it you immediately showed it to me and your Mom.

Last night, your Mom, Lola Letty and I went out to watch a movie. but while waiting for it to start we goofed around with the Simpsons (that's me, bTw, on the other end of the sofa)

Oh, and you are finally going to school now, at three years old. Your Lola Letty, Mommy, Ninang and Ate Sage take turns in teaching you your academics.

 You look great in your Nursery Uniform

Welcome to the Salcedo-Galvez Clan of NY! To the proud parents, Rose and Jerome, CONGRATULATIONS!!!

(Special THANKS to JC for sending this pic to us)

Okay, let's get down to work. You know we really should get them babies of the next generation started really, really early...

My Child,

You may not know Me, but I know everything about you Psalm 139:1. I know when you sit down and when you rise up Psalm 139:2. I am familiar with all your ways …Psalm 139:3. Even the very hairs on your head are numbered Matthew 10:29-31. For you were made in My image Genesis 1:27. In me you live and move and have your being Acts 17:28. For you are my offspring Acts 17:28. I knew you even before you were conceived Jeremiah 1:4-5.

I chose you when I planned creation Ephesians 1:11-12. You were not a mistake, for all your days are written in my book Psalm 139:15-16. I determined the exact time of your birth and where you would live Acts 17:26. You are fearfully and wonderfully made Psalm 139:14. I knit you together in your mother's womb Psalm 139:13. And brought you forth on the day you were born Psalm 71:6.

I have been misrepresented by those who don't know me John 8:41-44. I am not distant and angry, but am the complete expression of love 1 John 4:16. And it is my desire to lavish my love on you 1 John 3:1. Simply because you are my child and I am your Father…1 John 3:1. I offer you more than your earthly father ever could Matthew 7:11. For I am the perfect father Matthew 5:48.

Every good gift that you receive comes from my hand…James 1:17. For I am your provider and I meet all your needs Matthew 6:31-33. My plan for your future has always been filled with hope Jeremiah 29:11. Because I love you with an everlasting love Jeremiah 31:3. My thoughts toward you are countless as the sand on the seashore .Psalms 139:17-18. And I rejoice over you with singing Zephaniah 3:17.

I will never stop doing good to you Jeremiah 32:40. For you are my treasured possession Exodus 19:5. I desire to establish you with all my heart and all my soul Jeremiah 32:41. And I want to show you great and marvelous things Jeremiah 33:3.

If you seek me with all your heart, you will find me Deuteronomy 4:29. Delight in me and I will give you the desires of your heart Psalm 37:4. For it is I who gave you those desires Philippians 2:13. I am able to do more for you than you could possibly imagine Ephesians 3:20. For I am your greatest encourager 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17 .

I am also the Father who comforts you in all your troubles 2 Corinthians 1:3-4. When you are brokenhearted, I am close to you Psalm 34:18. As a shepherd carries a lamb, I have carried you close to my heart Isaiah 40:11. One day I will wipe away every tear from your eyes Revelation 21:3-4. And I'll take away all the pain you have suffered on this earth Revelation 21:3-4.

I am your Father, and I love you even as I love my son, Jesus John 17:23. For in Jesus, my love for you is revealed …John 17:26. He is the exact representation of my being Hebrews 1:3 He came to demonstrate that I am for you, not against you Romans 8:31. . And to tell you that I am not counting your sins 2 Corinthians 5:18-19. Jesus died so that you and I could be reconciled 2 Corinthians 5:18-19. His death was the ultimate expression of my love for you 1 John 4:10.

I gave up everything I loved that I might gain your love Romans 8:31-32. If you receive the gift of my son Jesus, you receive me 1 John 2:23. And nothing will ever separate you from my love again Romans 8:38-39. Come home and I'll throw the biggest party heaven has ever seen Luke15:7. I have always been Father, and will always be Father Ephesians 3:14-15. My question is; Will you be my child? John 1:12-13. I am waiting for you. Luke 15:11-32.


Your Dad, Almighty God

To our Relatives and Friends in the land of Jefferson, Adams, Lincoln and Kennedy:

Long Live the American Way of Life!!!

Please take America back from those who are against it:

From the neoconservatives who believe that ACLU should be decimated by members of the NRA...

From Fox News Network who believes that geraldo is a broadcast journalist...

From the people of the Religious Right (American Talibans) who are scared of Harry Potter and Rock n' Roll Music.

From people like McCarthy, Nixon, Chenny and W. bush.

Make America the land of liberty again.

-- from Us who practice the ideals of the age of enlightment outside the American shores.
