Okay okay. Finally I’m doing the two memes tagged to me by Eric and Jaypee ages ago. I’ve been meaning to post my answers but I’ve been quite busy of late, (as always retorts my mother) and since I didn’t posted something yesterday, I thought I’d end the one-day haitus with this post.
First off, will be the ‘Cinco’ tag by Jaypee since it’s easier;
Five items in my freezer:
I checked our freezer after having dinner, in there I found a pack of hotdogs, chicken wings, ice drops for my little brother, another pack of cheesedogs and some pork chops.
Five items in the car:
I don’t personally own a car so I’ll make use of my cousin’s which I’m part owner since I pitched in quite a chunk of my savings when we bought it last year. Anyways, inside is a model of a Ferrari 360 (my dream car), Bob Ong’s “Paboritong Libro ni Hudas”, a rosary, a Sponge Bob air freshener container, and an umbrella.
Five Items in my wallet:
A keychain that looks like Itachi Uchiha, my old 4th yr highschool ID, a drawing by my ex-gf, a hundred-peso bill, some old love letters.
Five Items in my closet:
My knee braces, my malong, an old backpack, my ANBU costume, and my AWM (Arctic Warfare Magnum-model airsoft rifle)
Okeedokie, now on to the tougher books meme by Eric. Now for each item, I had more than 3 answers but I only included the book that first popped in my mind and without me looking at my desk, headboard, and bookshelf where my books are scattered in my room.
One book that changed your life:
Future Shock by Alvin Toffler – We’re all suffering from ‘future shock’
One book that made you laugh:
Pugad Baboy 17 – Brosia rules!!!
One book you have read more than once:
Das Kapital by Karl Marx (direct German to English translation) – my mind went numb for days upon my first chapters. I actually read it over 5 times, I knew I should’ve read Marx for beginners beforehand, oh well.
One book you would want on a desert island:
U.S. Army Survival Manual – Eric and I are on the ‘same page.’
One book that made you cry:
Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden – a beautiful book.
One book you wish had been written:
Bonifacio: Siya ba ay kilala ko? by Ed Aurelio Reyes – an excellent companion to Ambeth Ocampo’s “Rizal without the overcoat.”
One book you wish had never been written:
Alamat ng Gubat by Bob Ong – rubbish, just rubbish. I liked his first three books better.
One book you are currently reading:
Among the three I’m reading right now, I’d choose for this post The Time Traveller’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger, I just got it yesterday and it’s a break from all the heavy and geeky books I’m currently reading.
One book you have been meaning to read:
The Devil Wears Prada: A Novel by Lauren Wesiberger. It’s been in my list of to-buy books for months, plus I can’t wait to see the movie.
