Meet me offline tonight, ‘cause a 73 x 73 thumbnail isn’t enough you. I want you in the highest resolution, in four dimensions, the only way I know how to look at something beautiful. You weren’t made for the screen you know, and neither was the broken skin where you cut yourself shaving and the almost-invisible hairs that paint the corners of your upper lip and that one crooked eyelash that bends at a 45-degree angle. Who was foolish enough to think they could squeeze everything noteworthy about you into an avatar? You’re too pretty for pixels.
Put up an away message and let’s go away, somewhere we can power down and still feel electric, somewhere that doesn’t need password protecting. Let’s lose ourselves and find ourselves in a place with no Yelp reviews, no Google results, no Foursquare check-ins. The distance between your eyes and mine is uncharted territory, that’s a good place to start. Let’s look there first.
Tonight, I want to push all of your buttons except the one that says Like. I want to eat too slowly and argue over Tim Burton’s best film and take your mother’s side; I want you to look at me like you want to strangle me or kiss me or both and maybe then I’ll undo a couple of your buttons or my buttons and how’s that for a notification? I want to be the one to alert you.
Sign off and log out and shut down so we can meet up and go out and get high on fingers touching fingers and tongues pressing tongues instead of fingers pressing buttons. What I want to give to you is too large to attach, what I want to give to you can’t be uploaded or emailed or right-click-saved. Meet me so that we can remember how to connect without a router and a modem and a satellite, do it so that we don’t forget.
Just unplug for a while, ‘cause I can’t download the space between your shoulder blades and I need your back in my hands to remember how bodies work. I want to relearn your skin with an open palm, not a single finger, you know what I mean? ‘Cause what I mean is I want to touch you, not Poke you; I want to like you, not Like you; I want to love you, not Heart you. I want to live in a place void of scare quotes, of capitalized letters that inject semantics, a place void of tonal ambiguity. I want to live in a place where the space between your back exists, where it’s wire-less and not wireless, a place where I can like you in lowercase. Let me like you.
01.21.12 Nikka day
Met up with Ciarra and Nikka to unwind. We had already planned to get together/hang around a long, long time ago and after several attempts, we finally did!
We watched Sherlock Holmes 2 : Game of Shadows and dang it, boy, t’was a lot of fun! Must add Robert Downey Jr to my list of must see’s.
But before everything else, I grabbed Happy Lemon’s Cocoa with Rocksalt and Cheese. Nothing really special about it, until you stir it well. It tasted like heaven, but actually I was expecting something more — well yeah, it did taste like heaven but there’s something missing. Can’t really taste the rocksalt that much. After the Happy Lemon saga, we went to Tokyo Tokyo - just across HL to get our burgers. Yum! I am hoping to get their soft shelled something (forgot the name but I remember that it costs aroung 50php), sadly it was faced out.
The day ended kind of quickly. Ah, happy memories with these two people. Until next time, guys!
01.24.12 Food hunt day
After our AUTHOR2 class, Ciarra and I decided to go to the other side a.k.a. DLSU to go food hunting. It’s kind of lame to eat on the same establishments (Jollibee, KFC,
Mang Inasal, cafeteria) all the freaking time, and since we’ve got time to spare ‘cause our prof’s real cool for giving us early dismissal, we grabbed the chance and explored the place. Anyway, we ate at Orange Chicken (?) over EGI Taft. Food is way above our expectations! When you go there, you MUST try their Chicken Lollipop.
See? Their serving is over the top! There are 5 pcs of chicken lolli there. Their gravy complements the chicken well! Ciarra discovered that it has some mashed potato. The meal costs approximately
01.27.12 Bestfriend Appreciation Day
I treated Ciarra yesterday to tea stack and MAZZO. For all the shizz I’ve been through, this girl is always there for me no matter what. I’m really, really happy and grateful to have a friend like her. Thank you for everything, tsong. :)
Finding this place is quite difficult if you’re an outsider, but once you go there, I promise you, you won’t regret it … uh well, you’ll pretty much regret it if you’re gonna go there later than 7PM; they close rather early. It’s near Pasta Plate (located at the far end).
We ordered Dark Cocoa with Rocksalt and Cheese. WINNER. This is even WAAAY BETTER than Happy Lemon’s best seller.
We ordered Chicken something/Kung Pow pasta… it’s kind of spicy but it’s a good kind of spicy; the chicken is tender, too! And again, another WINNER. Actually, Tea Stack (sells milk teas and beverages) and MAZZO (sells food) are two different stores situated in one location.
I sound like an endorser
We met up with Mark and talked a lot at McDo
without ordering anything haha
Great night, overall!
Aww! ♥ ♥ ♥ Sure thing! And one more thing, your photographs are sharp and at the same time tender, I really like ‘em! Keep up the great work :)
I clicked on the source to see if this was legit. The staff really sent this.
I did the same :(
Reblogged twice so my followers can see it. :o
…. wut o_0
I don’t know if it’s really true or not, but for the record it’s true that it’s tumblr’s staff who did this, BUT on the other hand, if it’s about deleting every inactive tumblr accounts then why is the content source about Japan donations?
Deadline is until this Saturday only!!
This is valid to PH residents and female models only.
