Neil Gaiman's Anansi Boys and the 478th copy of Neil Gaiman's letter. Anansi Boys is a good read!

Of course, Jessica Zafra. This signature has a story. A friend and I went to Powerbooks Megamall for the book signing. Alas, our news was a little bit inaccurate, the book signing was on Powerbooks Glorietta. With 15 minutes 'till closing time, we hurried off from Megamall to Glorietta. Thank heavens for the MRT and for my friend's accurate sense of direction (if I was by my lonesome, I could have gotten lost at Glorietta, that my friends is a testimonial of my excellent sense of direction... I could get lost inside a mall).

Then, I was next in line for Ms. Zafra's signature, she looked at me and I swear I wished that the ground could swallow me alive for I was not worthy to be in her presence. For the life of me, I have so many things to say... but all I could say was,"For Antonette" and a feeble smile. Gosh! Star struck again!

Voila... my hard-earned autograph... a little glitch in spelling but what the heck... it's Zafra's!

Hello, it's me!

It's been awhile since I have shared something on this space about my thoughts and my life. Well, where do I start? Maybe just like an old good friend, I will try to give you some highlights on the past years when I was not blogging.

The biggest thing that happened to me so far was I got my Australian citizenship. I know right? I know that it may not be a big deal to others but for me, this is something that I have tried to work on for the past 5 years.  My kababayans might say that I am ungrateful, but we cannot discount the fact that with a blue passport from a country like Australia, I can travel to many countries - visa free without immigration officers trying to catch my eye and check if I am planning to do something illegal on their country.

No offense, but every time I stand on the immigration line going into another country, my heart always work double/triple time because I am too anxious to be deported back to my country even if I know that I have the proper visa.

The Lesbian Lifestyle

It's been about eight (8) years since I came out as a lesbian. So much has changed since then. I never in my wildest dream thought that I will be with someone who loves me as much as my partner does and I never realized that I am capable of so much love.

I gained more than 50 pounds. You'll never realize it but the weight creeps in. It seems to be proportional to the amount of happiness you're gaining. Thus, if weight is the price I need to pay for being happy so be it! I would rather be plump and gay than thin and grumpy. :)

All of my friends are straight women and gay guys. I have a few lesbian friends (about 3 I think) and that's it. Not having enough lesbian friends is not a major problem for me since I don't think I fit into the lesbian lifestyle.

1.) I am not a radical feminist.
2.) I don't really think that all men are evil (ok some are but we also have evil women :)).
3.) I like green jokes and other politically incorrect jokes as …
