if you're interested in being added, leave a comment. however, i probably won't be adding more than 50 people, i'm having a really hard time keeping up with my friends list.

matthew: yeah, my brother was clobbering me when we were playing hero clix today.

jammi: aaww...why? he had a better set?

matthew: nah. i just always do badly at any game against my brother.

jammi: ...then why do you play?

matthew: damn capricorns. you don't like playing unless you win, huh?

jammi: um, why else would i play if i'm not going to win?

matthew: because there's FUN in just playing?

jammi: there's no fun if i'm not winning, baby.

held a focus group discussion last saturday, for my term paper (which is built like a mini-thesis). topic: the simulation of the female in anime. (as in, that baudrillard dude) the thesis statement: ...er? it's pretty much just a study on the animated film perfect blue (which is along the lines of psycho-mind-fuck-thriller)

the FGD went extremely well. there was the film viewing, half of them had watched it previously, the second hadn't. held discussions after, which were extremely fruitful. everyone had something amazing to say. it was a good mix of otakus, blue-mooners and virgins (in terms of anime familiarity).

thank you so much to everyone who went, i really appreciated it. andrew and jeppy, you guys were sorely missed! i would still like to pick your brains though, so i hope to hold interviews. you don't need to have watched perfect blue though.

now on to the hard part. actually writing the damn paper. first draft due this wednesday, ay.

but first:

So, say you were meeting a new person--blind date, new friend, who knows. And you wanted them to have some idea of what kind of person you are, and who you are. But you can't actually tell them in so many words. Instead, you have to give them a box, with a dozen things in it for them to look at/read/listen to/taste/whatever. "What would you put in the box? And a copy of your journal or a link to your LJ would be the same thing as just telling them directly, yourself, so that's not allowed.

1. the elephant vanishes by haruki murakami
2. potato salad (made by my wonderful matthew, of course!)
3. my mix david bowie CD (his older stuff, i.e. my little china girl, life on mars, etc)
4. a mix CD of japanese music (jpop, jrock, anime, etc)
5. some random pictures that i've taken
6. my small notebook filled with theories that turn me on (my thoughts on technological determinism, simulation and simulacra, feminist media theory, etc)
7. one mini disc that fits three songs (dashboard confessional's hands down, the cure's pictures of you and maroon 5's she will be loved)
8. a copy of the movie, CQ
9. one of my ah! my goddess volumes
10. my red-black checkered hat
11. terry pratchett's feet of clay
12. a picture of matthew and me.

as soon as i got down from claire's car, i could already hear leica saying, "oh my god, it's jammi! she made it!". yes folks, it's been that long since i've partied "up north".

there was good food, fab new people, great conversation, and way too much comic geeking between paolo and matthew. and most importantly: royal+vanilla liquor (vodka?). yum. matthew later told me that i tend to dominate conversation, though he says that isn't a bad thing. it isn't? i can't keep my mouth shut when i meet people for the first time.

i'd say more about the party, but leica's eyebrows will kill me!

happy birthday again, leica!

then later that night (some time after 11pm), claire dropped us off at dave's yes-!-my-fucking-thesis-is-done party...or something. though i honestly believed it was a celebration of the transition between friday the thirteenth, and *stupid day.

met some really rad new people, some of whom i have been dying to meet (i.e. "oh my god, i finally get to suck your brains out" "you're thrillspill, right?" "did you bring your penis?"). for some reason, every two minutes of party time became three hours of real time. beer had never tasted so good, being drunk had never been so much fun. and my clothes have never so badly stank of cigarettes. the mechanical chewing of nummy chicken nuggets kept me from falling off chairs to lie as an inebriated pile of post-midterms-girl.

i wish i could write about it, but there were just too many great things that happened, and i just don't have the words for some of it. but it was the most fantastic thing to happen to me in a long, long time.

and to the new people i met: i apologize for all the misplaced fruedian comments, and all other silly things i may have said. i wish i could blame it on the gin.

matthew had fallen asleep during pingpong(?) a fantasticcrazy japanese movie that i must own. by the start of stacy (which was apparently about japanese school girls who turn into flesh-eating zombies) matthew refused to let me position myself in anything that did not involve holding him. which left me to stare at nothing but matthew hair, which then let the whole week of scarce sleep finally catch up on me.

woke up groggily a little under an hour, to find dave passed out on the couch with the sun rising. pat silently waved goodbye while leaning against the comatose mihk. matthew and i packed our things and shuffled our way out the door, and into what i think was pasig.

half an hour later, in a train heading to makati, i watched the sun filter through the clouds and rest against matthew's skin. i smiled and told him, "happy valentine's day".

the rest was mush and personal, something along the lines of pink-tinged rainbows and fuzzy feelings and a bed that was hard to leave from.

i don't remember the last time i've experienced such uninterrupted happiness.



_______________

* did you know that the greek word for stupid was valentine? i've been telling this to everyone and their goddamn grandmother, because i can't get over it.

hope you guys had a good stupid day!
