Games People Play

Games are a compromise between intimacy and keeping intimacy away.
Eric Berne.


I don't like when people assume to know me or know what's good for me!

I don't like games that involve twisted hearts, minds, and body parts!

But, some people play games and sometimes you have to do what you have to do.

I always think if you act like a toy, I'll treat you like a toy! If you like to play games, I'll treat you like a game. But, I never think I'm good at playing games.

I detest getting attached to anyone/someone because then you'll have to be there for them and what happens when they aren't there for you?

It doesn't matter because there's only one that's there for me and this one will always be there for me. He's the only reason I am living! He's the only one that's ever truly cared, understood me, has been there for me (even at times when I was not there for him) and truly loves me regardless.

I guess I feel bad because I'm falling into my old habits/patterns.

Every time I take a step ahead, I fall two to three steps back...

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

"We expect too much at Christmas.
It's got to be magical. It's got to go right.
Feasting. Fun. The perfect present.
All that anticipation. Take it easy.
Love's the thing. The rest is tinsel."
Pam Brown, Australian poet.

(()) Some gifts are big, others are small.
Gifts from the heart are the best gifts of all!

//// "Happy Holidays"!

Going Commando

So my friend, Marsadie, told me about this: Commandos Patches — the revolutionary, uniquely-shaped cotton disposable patch that safely sticks in the curved seam of your jeans and pants so you can go underwear-free in cotton comfort and protection. They come in black, denim, pale pink, light nude, and white.

"Be healthy, sexy and still in classy mystery."

I've never gone commando [[have you?]] but I want to. Usually I fantasize about going commando while having a rendezvous in Paris with monsieur Olivier Theyskens (the artistic director of French fashion house Nina Ricci). Although I'm pretty indecisive about these patches, I think going commando is best for summer with a lovely dress or skirt... just make sure to move like you're wearing a skin-tight pencil skirt otherwise it could turn into a Britney Spears or Kelly Osbourne incident.

FYI: At a party for (the editor-in-chief of Allure Magazine) Linda Wells' new book, "Allure: Confessions of a Beauty Editor," designers Tom Ford and Zac Posen admitted they frequently go without underwear.

Asian Adonis: Takeshi Kaneshiro

Asian heartthrob Takeshi Kaneshiro has been chosen as the first male Asian face of Armani.

The Japanese-Taiwanese actor will appear in Emporio Armani underwear’s autumn/winter collection advertising campaign, along with existing endorser David Beckham. Kaneshiro’s fame in Asia is based on films, such as "House of Flying Daggers" and "The Warlords."

Giorgio Armani handled costume design for Kaneshiro’s movie "Confession of Pain."

I am excited to collaborate with Takeshi on this new advertising campaign. He is a film and style icon in Asia where his fame transcends cultures both East and West. His sense of effortless style is very contemporary and sophisticated and together with his good look makes him the ideal testimonial for Emporio Armani," said Giorgio Armani in a statement.

World AIDS Day

December 1st - World AIDS Day 2008:
Show your support for the fight against HIV/AIDS, help raise awareness, and remember those affected by the disease!

Don't forget to wear it daily - because AIDS doesn't just exist on December 1st!

AIDS attacks the body.
PREJUDICE attacks the spirit.

One is caused by a VIRUS.
One is caused by IGNORANCE.
Both can kill!

P.S. I really adore these advertisements for awareness by Aides, a French community-based non-profit organization.

[[Aides means "support" in French.]]
