A weekend of fun - Part One



Last night, Nike and I, were giddy with excitement because we were flying to the Big Apple! New York, New York! The place that John Lennon fought to stay for the last years of his life. If he liked it there, then being an egomaniacal person that I am, I know that I can surely feel what made him want to stay there even if it caused his death.

Three states in One night!

I have been lifting weights for the past month or so, not knowing why I had this sudden urge to build muscles. Gaining weight is inevitable if one transitions from a warm weather to a very cold state such as Minnesota. I decided that if I am going to gain weight, I must gain it mostly in muscle. So, I started to lift weights to the point when I can lift almost five plates of metal and 15 lbs of free weights.

When I saw our luggages, lightbulb, that's why! Carrying those huge luggages could have been a hurculean tasks if I didn't have much practice in free weights. It was effortless, the only challenge was the carryon luggage stuf which we have to zip and unzip during inspection. Other than that, the muscles and fat paid their dues, hehehe :)

Our flight was supposed to just last us two hours - from Minneapolis to New York. But when we were at the top of New York, the captain announced that we are running out of fuel because we can't land due to the number of airplanes on the runway. Akalain mo yun, hindi lang pala sa Pinas nangyayari yun pati sa Tate. So we had to go to Philadelphia to refuel.

Comedy of errors pa rin. When we got to Philadelphia, we were able to land, yes, but the pilot cannot find a refueling area. hahaha.. But the Americans are so patient, they just mumbled and stuff but if it was a Philippine flight, it could have turned into a fiesta. hahaha.. :)

We landed in New York at about 2 am (NY time) and when I felt the cold air (not the chilly air of Minneapolis), I can't believe it. I am in New York! It's true... it exists!

So, off we go... and I can't wait to see New York in all of its splendors.

AMEN!

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 …
