…in a pool or the beach is probably in most people’s mind these days. Most schools have been celebrating their commencement exercises and vacation leave forms are flying here and there. Holy Week will start in a matter of days. April 6 to be exact. The last time I checked, that day is an official non-working holiday. My father shared over dinner that our neighbors have been busy setting up their portable pool. He added that our neighbors were thinking of upgrading their pool. I said there are great pool supplies online that they might be interested in. That would be nice to have, specially if one is too lazy to go on a trip. Like me. Hehe.
I checked my blogging tasks Inbox this morning and found PLENTY of new keywords. Yey! The client I have been writing for have had a series of system upgrades for the past three weeks and was only able to send new assignments this week. The number of keywords are enough to buy me one of those home theater chairs perfect for my weekend movie marathons. Speaking of, I’ve had a lot of these marathons and had noted the movies that were blog-worthy.

This note is circulating in Facebook. This was reposted by Facebook user GR Rodis (whom I think is Maxene's friend). Let's help the Magalona family to track down the organizers of the event for them to be properly reprimanded.
Let us shame these scammers into giving Francis M's family the respect they deserve as his heirs. They should not be allowed to use his image in any event without permission from the family. This is what Maxene said in her Note. Please spread this around so that it may get to the people in that area so that they do not support this fraud.
"Although we understand that papa influenced millions of people with his work, we don't approve of these gimmicks that pretend to pay tribute to his legacy when it is OBVIOUS that they are merely using him to make money. FRANCIS M.'S FOUNDATION? There's no such thing! Mama never approved of anything like that! If they were honest and true about paying tribute to papa and wanting to earn money for some foundation, they would have done the appropriate thing and respectfully asked my mom for permission. This is like using my dad as a performer in a concert except they don't pay him for it.
Plus, they're selling shirts just like those from my dad's clothing line.. GAYA GAYA! How do these people sleep at night?! PLEASE RESPECT MY DAD AND LET HIM REST IN PEACE. Nakakabastos kayo!
P.S. If any of you discover more events or merchandise similar to this, please bring it to our attention immediately. THANK YOU."

It's not that easy being green
Having to spend each day the color of the leaves
When I think it could be nicer being red, or yellow or gold
Or something much more colorful like that
It's not easy being green
It seems you blend in with so many other ordinary things
And people tend to pass you over 'cause you're
Not standing out like flashy sparkles in the water
Or stars in the sky
But green's the color of Spring
And green can be cool and friendly-like
And green can be big like an ocean, or important
Like a mountain, or tall like a tree
When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why, but why wonder why
Wonder, I am green and it'll do fine, it's beautiful
And I think it's what I want to be

Una at huling beses.
Magkahalong lungkot at saya ang naramdaman ko.
Saya, dahil muling nabuo ang Eraserheads at pinaunlakan ang kanilang mga taga-suporta na marinig silang tumugtog muli. Talagang sinulit ng banda ang pag-kakataon sa pag-kanta ng humigit 30 na kanta na sinimulan nila sa kantang Magasin. Natuwa ako kasi bawat kanta, iba ang areglo. Pinakapaborito ko sa lahat ay, syempre, ang acoustic set. Ang pag-kanta ni Raimund, and ngiti ni Buddy, ang "Chika" song ni Marcus, ang pag-sabay ng lahat sa pag-kanta ng Kaleidescope World bilang pag-pupugay kay Francis M. (RIP, Man From Manila!) at ang pag-sunog ni Ely ng piyanong ginamit nila sa cover ng Sticker Happy album ay ilan pa sa mga hindi ko makakalimutang mga tagpo kagabi.
Lungkot dahil mula ngayong araw na ito, tanging ang mga cassette tapes at CDs na lamang ang mag-papa alaala sa akin na minsan tayo ay naging tunay na mag-kaibigaaaaann...
Ayan, napapakanta na naman ako. Pero, pwera biro, habang ako'y nakaupo sa aking napiling sulok at nakikisabay sa pag-kanta ng Tikman, Poor Man's Grave, Waiting for the Bus, at sa iba pa; ako'y medyo napa-luha. Bilang isang taga-hanga, mahirap isipin na ito na talaga. Wala nang susunod pa. Ika nga, ito na Ang Huling El Bimbo.
Hindi ko makakalimutan ang tatlong oras na iyon ng buhay ko. Mas masaya sana kung may kasama akong nanood at nakikanta kagabi, pero tingin ko mas ok na ako lang mag-isa. Dahil sa tatlong oras na yon ng buhay ko, nakasama ko naman ang Eraserheads.
