Crazy, Stupid and Proud!



I’m seeing all bloody red all around me. Am I having a heart attack? Or, just instance of “hearts attack”? Hahaha. Forgive my cheesiness, this is embarrassing already! Valentine’s Day will be arriving soon and I’m seeing multitudes of red, heart-shaped cut-outs in various sizes posted on windows and walls or hanging on tree branches and ceilings almost everywhere I go. Annoying even to see once again that cute little boy who seem to have no intention other than to annihilate everyone within eyesight with his deadly bow and arrow! A primitive weapon of ancient warfare; so effective and always a frequent choice by pure-hearted barbarians due to its capacity to torture an opponent by having to hit your opponent at least 5-10 times in the body to make sure he’s dead; at least 2 if you’re aiming for the eyes! To think, how a cute little fellow, barely pass infancy, be allowed to carry such a deadly weapon! That is insanely crazy ultra ironic, isn’t it? (Forgive yet again the overlapping superlatives) Yes! And so is love.

Crazier even is this quote I chanced to read earlier today:

“One seeks to make the loved one entirely HAPPY, or, if that cannot be, entirely WRETCHEDJean de la Bruyere

Now, that is one of the wittiest ways of putting the ambivalence of the mysterious emotion called love. When you have found your true love in your partner, you will be the happiest person in the world, no doubt. But like every relationship on earth, there will be times that you want to detach your partner’s head from their body simply because you really want to do it. But that is how love works; hence the reason why it is mysterious. When you are in love sometimes you are inspired to do things that conflict with rationality. Going all the way to another city or country even, to surprise your loved one, even if money, distance and other things stand in the way, or giving up a high-paid white-collar job to just be able to spend more time to cuddle with your partner, these things may not be feasible in many ways economically or otherwise. But love is not a friend of reason. It is precisely this irrationality that makes love the most mysterious emotion and marvelous experience. At the end of the day it will get to you – you want to put a smile on her face with a trinket you thought will look nice on her, or you bought home his favorite board game and some beers just to see the look on his face. So here’s my advice, if you wanna go crazy, go crazy in love! Now, just in case you don’t yet have any subject to express your love to, go crazy in love still, with yourself!

Happy Heart’s Month! I love Cupid; one day I got tired avoiding his barrages of arrows and  eventually was hit (big time), and I’m crazy ever since!

How about you? Are you still running from Mr. Cutie Cupid? Tell you, his darn persistence is unequaled, he’ll get to you sooner or later. If I were you, better use your energy somewhere else worthwhile than running away from him! 😉 

If ever he’s not minding you at all, disarm him of his weapon and shoot him with it instead!



Mystery Blogger Award


Before anything else, I would like to thank two of the lovely (inside and out) ladies who nominated me for this award, Liz and Nyse. In as much as I’m honored and thrilled for this, I am likewise anxious, edgy, tensed, (panicky?) -*insert every word you can think of which corresponds with the word nervous – in answering their respective sets of questions.


Because there’s this seemingly unwritten ancient policy which says that when a lady (ladies in this case – one undeniably good-looking and the other (can’t yet give a fair description due to the absence of available photos, however, she was widely known as the Queen of Awesomeness, and, for sure, that wasn’t for a reason, haha)) asked a guy some serious questions they apparently require some serious answers too, right? Disagree all you want, it’s still my opinion and I’m entitled to it, haha. And although I’ve emphasized some strong points about saying “No” on my post The “No” Way which I can use as a good excuse not to divulge any information  about myself [as a matter of personal security] by answering the  questions  set before me yet commonsense (or you can aptly say in the guise of being polite) dictates that I need to contradict those points in consideration of this award, hahaha. Who’s in his right mind would dismiss such a generously encouraging gesture?! You tell me…

Having said that, now I was forced, rather, left with the task of answering the hereunder sets of questions. So let’s get the ball rolling, shall we?

Liz’s Questions:

  1. What is one goal you’d like to accomplish during your lifetime?

I want to have a book published in my name. I’m still in [most people] would consider as ‘midlife’, so, factor in the equation the progress climate change is covering on a daily basis plus the average life expectancy of a person in the world scale (without bias to territorial location and racial genetic  structures) I think that is still possible, haha.

  1. Describe your form of spirituality.

I’m a Christian. I believe that there’s a God who works for the good of all His children according to His will and timing. On that thought, Christianity has also taught me to love, accept and respect my fellow human beings without bias and prejudice as to belief, personal views, status and circumstances.

  1. What movie is close to the story of your life?

This is hard. Modesty aside, I was thinking more of James Bond or Jason Bourne movies, just kidding! Hahaha.

Seriously, I can probably relate with the character of Guido in the movie Life is Beautiful (La vita è bella), his positivism, his humor, and the manner in which he wooed the love of his life, Dora.

I’m an old soul, haha. No, maybe I just like movies that I consider with “real” stories to offer.

  1. Which author would you like to hang out with for a day?

I would say Steven Spielberg if he’s an author but unfortunately he’s not. So I’ll just settle down with Ernest Hemingway. I’ll have him explain his “grace under pressure” principle; I got a 2.0 in American Literature way back in college for not rendering a substantial elucidation of said principle in the context of the “lost generation”.

In retrospect, I think it was my professor’s fault, she just asked us to explain, she didn’t say “substantially” though. Anyways (*sigh*)

N.B.: Dearest Professor: Oh, you’re not implicated on this, the last time I checked your name was not yet changed to “professor”. So, *peace sign*

  1. (Weird Question) If you could read one person’s mind, whose would it be?

My wife’s. No further comments, haha

Nyse’s Questions:

  1. What is your number 1 goal in life?

Well, I must say that I struggle every single day to have a balanced life – with respect to spirituality, relationships and commitments, work, hobbies, all and everything in between.

As everyone else’s ultimate goal in life (generally speaking) – to leave a mark (even just an itsy, bitsy, tiny mark) of goodness to myself and to others whom I had [and will have] the chance to meet or to be with in this lifetime.

And, sorry I can’t help it, I must add: to publish a book in my name too! That’s my number 1.1!

2. Describe in three words the purpose of your blog.

Provoke. Motivate. Inspire.

3. If you could go back in time, to any period in history what year, and                where would it be?

Back at the time of Jesus’ (Christ) crucifixion. I want to witness the greatest event that took place in this planet which eventually sent ripples of change throughout the whole world up to this present times and extending further to the forthcoming generations.

Many great hearts wrote history through their mighty deeds but that one act alone changed all that are significant in this world, transcending all the barriers of time and changing the phase of humanity.

4. If you could be any animal, which animal would it be?

An ape, at least I would still have features closely related to humans. Plus, just as they say, history repeats itself, so just as when evolution takes its turn, voila! I’m human again!

Nah, I chose ape because they naturally resemble us. They’re like our animal counterparts.  You can view “humanity” in their actions – the way they care and nurse their young ones, the way they interact with each other, the way the establish hierarchy, their politics of coexistence, among many other traits.

5. (Weird): Does the books you read, affect the foods you eat?

Yes. There was this one time when a book that I was reading while having lunch fell and messes up with my soup. Soup did taste funny afterwards.

Weird question, weird answer, Nyse 😉


N.B.: This post also requires the nominees to share three (3) facts about themselves.

To that I can’t share any more details, if you’ve read my silly answers you can already pick out at least 20 or something facts about me! Well, apparently I’m a corny comedian as you’ve probably noticed by now, hahaha.


My Best Post:

My blog’s Top Posts & Pages corner reflects Breaking up with Medi O. Crity (I don’t know why?) but for me it should have been The “No” Way. But I have a feeling though that this post is going to be the ultimate Best Post for this blog, for one reason, among many others, this is written appurtenant to an award! Come to think of it, haha.
