* This afternoon I caught myself mesmerized and listening intently to my friends, Gelo and Mike, as they told me about (of all the cool things available for conversation) Breaking Dawn and the Twilight Saga over a plate of sisig. That was very educational, thank you guys. Light moment
* I literally had nothing to do last night. We slept late, as we celebrated our friend Joyce's birthday at Burger King after work in the wee hours of a very cool Sunday morning. I brought home the free Whopper Jr. to eat for lunch. When we got home, I fell asleep watching Underworld 3. When I woke up at 4:30 pm I watched Date Night, then A-Team, then The Losers. Then I listened to a few songs while reading a Paste feature on Belle and Sebatian's Stuart Murdoch before I went to sleep. Very informative.
* Is this for real? Do I really have nothing to do? It scares me, it creeps me out. I'm not used to it anymore. Before band practice, I told Gelo that I get scared when things are peaceful. The moment of peace is just a "rest period" for another "big one". I asked God last night what my attitude should be towards moments like these. I should be thankful, definitely. But I have an attitude problem. I don't like hassle but when it's gone, I miss it. I would always tell my staff, "Kelan ba magiging mapayapa ang buhay ko?" Then when everything's good, "Anong meron?!"
* During the storm last week, Retz, Jeg, and I were stranded. Our apartment was flooded and all entry points to both of my sisters' homes were blocked by trees and waist-deep flood water. We were driving around campus like scared children. We parked the Multicab in front of Mini Stop until our friend, Julius, told us we could stay at their place. When we arrived at their place, there were at least 30 injured and dead birds in front of their door. We had to rescue a few. I've never seen so may dead animals in one place. It was like a massacre.
* Calamities aside, our promos clicked last week, that was good. I'm very thankful for that. We worked very hard to develop our lunch combos and our new products. We're also very glad a lot of Yield Avenue and Meliora CDs were given away.
* It's a difficult situation to be in. I'm happy and thankful but there's a part of me that goes, "ehh..."
* It's cold. It's a phase. It will pass.
* Have you heard of Alf Likes This? If not, you can type it on Facebook and check it out. We're part of that and we want you guys to join. I'd like to explain it here but the blog would be too long. And I'm a bit sketchy right now. I just woke up from a nap at the cafe. That's me and Gelo with Al Labadan II of Alf Likes This (see photo above).
* Gigs! On Saturday, July 24, my band, Juniper Face the Corner, will play a few songs together with Lenard and Eric (Soundhole). If you missed the gig last time, now's your chance to watch us again! And on July 30, Yield Avenue will also be playing at the cafe. Be sure to bring your friends!
* Lunchtime is getting busy these days at CAnton. Come to the cafe from 11 am to 3 pm to try our affordable Lunch Combos! And from 5:30 pm onwards, you can order our newest pasta, the Pesto Alejandro!
* We will be replenishing prize stubs at Carajo's tomorrow. When you order at least 100 pesos worth of food at Carajo's you can pick out a prize at our box on their counter. You can avail those prizes from 11 am to 3 pm.
* Hopefully this will be a good week for all of us. Stay safe and God bless!
