Blogging at the peril of catching the Eye of Uncle Sam...

My eyes really are getting heavy, Herculean effort just to stay awake in front of my PC. What to do? Do I have the guts to blog? Yes, I believe this is my right as a human being... so therefore... I blog.

Porshie Spice suggested that I write about Christmas, "wat it means to me now... wat it meant to u wen u wer a kid or when u where younger...a newly employed girlash free from school." hmmm... where will I start?

I told her that I don't have special sentiments about Christmas. I don't like Christmas. I am no scrooge, but of all Christian traditions or season (I forgot the term), I love the Lenten Season the most.

Oh... there's something I like, the colorful trimmings on the christmas tree, even the hideous decorations in our building... make me shudder just by looking at it. I like bibingka and puto bungbong. I love family gatherings even if I just sit in one corner and eat. hehehe...

When I was younger, I am excited about Santa Claus. I can't wait for morning to come so I could see if my socks contain the magical goodies! Then, one fateful day, as I was helping my mom sort out some shopping bags, I noticed a Mickey mouse toy. But I didn't say anything because I was thinking that maybe that was her gift to one of her "inaanaks". Then, come christmas morning, there it is. The mickey mouse toy inside my christmas socks. How can I describe the disappointment? How the magic was lost? I think that was when my childhood belief in magic ended. No santa claus... so I guess there isn't any God also.. well, that part of the story will come 10 years later.

I guess, Christmas is a necessity. It's that time of the year when everyone should be happy and everything bright. You get to act that everything's ok and of course, for some, this is the time to find for that special someone to make the cold evenings bearable and of course, just in time for the February festivities (Valentine's day).

Well, it's a month away but what the heck... Advance Happy Christmas!

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 …
