this has got to stop

Tuesday, November 6, 2007

This has got to stop. Staying up until the wee hours of the morning to finish a book is a compulsion I have had since childhood that I can’t shake off. It makes me so sleepy during daytime that I have to down mugs and mugs of black coffee to keep myself awake. And what’s worse, I end up looking like a panda, with dark circles under my eyes even a whole stick of concealer couldn’t hide.

Oh well, at least I got to finish what I started.

And when you read till the wee hours, it never fails that someone wakes you up before you wanted to. ;)

anong book ang pinagpupuyatan mo? i'm reading memnoch na and i've taped the movie interview again. next after the chronicles maybe i'm going to read the manhunter/hannibal series of books... i'm having a gruesome phase ha-ha.

Oh yeah! Lecter and Starling enjoying the good life in South America. She said, she's going to read the series and you gave the ending away. ;)

ha-ha. it's ok. in fact, knowing the ending to a story does not dampen my lust for a book, it actually, sometimes, enhances it, 'cos then i want to know how the characters got there. hmmm clarice and hannibal, intruiging.
pala, you know i commented on your comment but i will tell you here what it was, sabi ko:
yes, i get almost everything by mail order here (mag-intay ka ba ng bus in the middle of winter, i will freeze over)...
Hurray pala! just got my thread and got book from amazon (Pandora)...
so tell me, if you go to chigago does that mean you'll watch Oprah live? (winkwink)
