You have not known what you are.
You have slumbered upon yourself all your life.
Your eyes have been as much as closed most of the time.
What you have done is already in mockeries.

The mockeries are not you.
Underneath them
And within them,
I see you lurk...

my wall of weird


THE WORD WEIRD, as defined by Oxford, means uncanny or supernatural. weird as i understand it, describes something that’s unconventional or different from popular sets of ideals or beliefs. but almost everything in the world is subjective. we see things in our own eyes. we sense and perceive things as we see ourselves. our individuality differs from each other because of numerous factors; hence, we tend to have different perception on things. what i consider normal for me maybe peculiar to others and what i consider weird maybe normal for others? so what’s weird for you? here are some facts about myself i categorized as weird. fifteen out of gazillion weird facts! hehe!

  1. i usually drink a large mug of creamed coffee at night and complain of having insomnia the next day. crazy is more appropriate word for this, not weird.

  1. i eat with one on foot on my chair. it feels like my intestines are much more aligned when i eat in this position. but i only do this at home of course. hehe!

  1. the first thing i’d do upon entering a bathroom would be to pour water on my feet. i don’t know why exactly, but i have a theory that it helps my body adjust to cold water before taking a bath.

  1. i couldn’t defecate with a shirt on. i am sort of cautious that i might stain my shirt with my poop, so i go topless. hehe!

  1. when i feel like singing, i lock myself in the bathroom, turn on the faucet and sing my lungs out in front of the mirror (that’s after pouring my feet with a dipper of water), and get out after 10 minutes of singing my favorite last-song-syndrome songs.

  1. i think i’m suffering from short-term memory loss. one time, i was looking for my id comfortably hanging around my neck. ice said it’s a symptom of being corrupted by perverted anger. i wish not.

  1. when i eat fried foods like hot dogs or scrambled eggs, ketchup is a necessity. but if i am so angry and there’s no ketchup around. i pour three tablespoons of soy sauce on my rice and sprinkle a couple pinches of salt.

  1. i read the harry potter series with background music---soundtrack inspired by the movie adaptations. reading novels with sound effects is like watching movies. i have a pretty good imagination.

  1. i watched harry potter and prisoner of azkaban at a movie house six times. i watched the first one with friends, and the rest with just myself. i usually go solo when watching movies i highly anticipate.

  1. my imagination scares me sometimes. i was planning to write a horror story for a time now but the images were so vivid i couldn’t translate them into words plus the fact that i usually write late at night. i guess i have to detach myself. i find the kitchen and mirrors creepy especially at night when our cat meows like a weeping child.

  1. i am not really a fan of shopping or doing grocery stuff. i easily get bored. when i am with my friends or my family, and they decide to shop, i either go to a bookstore, an audio store or a video store.

  1. i cut apples horizontally in halves. i find it easier to eat apples this way. did you know apple seeds contain cyanide? i love apples. perhaps i’m a death god like ryuk! hehe! death gods or shinigamis do hand stands when they don’t eat apples for a long time.

  1. when i’m doing something important or savoring a major daydream, bellowing my name won’t work. you should consider shaking me or say the word ‘glad’.

  1. i am very particular with details. i actually consider myself obsessive-compulsive perfectionist especially with stuff i’m interested in like in visual arts, academic reports, power point presentations, written articles, music that should be on my mp3 player, etc…

  2. i am a conspiracy buff. i love conspiracy theories and mysteries. i have to give dan brown (currently rereading angels and demons) and national geographic channel (my day is not complete without natgeo) credit for this. these are some of my favorite conspiracy theories and mysteries: (1) the 911 myth by zeitgeist, (2) did man really landed on the moon? (3), secret brotherhoods i.e. illuminati, priory of sion, masons (4) the gnostic gospels, (5) mystic places and structures i.e. bermuda triangle, atlantis, the nazca lines, the stongehenge, the pyramids.

. . .

rule: each player of this game starts off with 15 weird things / habits / little known facts about yourself. people who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 15 weird habits / things / little known facts as well as state this rule clearly. at the end, you need to choose 10 people to be tagged and list their names.
no tag backs!

. . .

off the record, the voting is now open for the e[kwento]mo: emo writing contest. i almost forgot that i passed an entry—lamentations of a withered tin can. if you liked it, don’t hesitate to drop by this site and vote. voting will proceed until october 17 (friday). there are 15 entries from 15 aspiring emo bloggers. so if you have time, it would be nice if you check us out :)

PS: inuman kami later kaya tagay na! hahaha! vi-a-v!

kalansaycollector said...

masasabi kong parehas tayo sa number 15 as in! sobrang love ko ang mga misteryo at conspiracy. haha. may novel akong dapat isusulat na may mga misteryo at conspiracy kaso dahil sa writer's block hindi ko masulat. pft. though nasa utak ko na ang plot and all...

there is something scary nga sa kusina sa gabi. i think parehas din tayo run. hehe

JoShMaRie said...

naku! ganun ba? di ko nga alam yun. ung stories na nagandahan ako, binigyan ko ng 3. :) shungaers ako. forgot about the rules. :)

Lance said...

UTITS CARIS-MECAK said...

I watched that docu about man landing on moon thingy, and yeah, half of me (or 1/8 maybe as not all functions) believe it.

hope you were not punched. Ive read it in your comment in my current post.

the spool artist said...

Mugen said...

roland said...

may kakilala din ako hindi makakain ng fried food without ketsup... di ko ma-take yung toyo and asin sa kanin... hahaha.

baliktad tau... pag umiinom ako ng kape mabilis akong nakakatulog... pambihira dba?

ang hate ko sa sarili ko is yung short memory gabi... minsan bago ako umalis ng room ako... 5 times i check the door kung nai-lock ko.

the spool artist said...

PROSETITUTE said...

we see things in our own eyes.

i agree. in most ways and situations, the personal is always political.

hindi ko pa napapanood yung zeitgeist things, but friends told me that it was a great docu. (or if it really is a docu).

mahilig din ako manuod ng sine mag-isa. :p gusto mo nuod tayon ng sineng mag-isa. hahaha

REDLAN said...

due to power interruption yesterday, I was not able to comment here. Buti na lang na-print ko siya and here it goes:

one: i usually drink a large mug of creamed coffee at night and complain of having insomnia the next day. crazy is more appropriate word for this, not weird.---->'yan pala ang reason kung bakit 2 am eh nasa labas ka at sinusubdan ang babaeng naka-black gown.

TWO: i eat with one on foot on my chair. it feels like my intestines are much more aligned when i eat in this position. but i only do this at home of course. hehe!-----> Buti na lang sa bahay mo lang ito ginagawa. Half korean ka ba? hehehe

THREE: the first thing i’d do upon entering a bathroom would be to pour water on my feet. i don’t know why exactly, but i have a theory that it helps my body adjust to cold water before taking a bath.----> cool 'to ah. naninigurado ka baka mainit yung tubig at least paa mo lang ang mapapaso.

FOUR: i couldn’t defecate with a shirt on. i am sort of cautious that i might stain my shirt with my poop, so i go topless. hehe!---> ito ang weird! haha. I can imagine you.... just like a kid.

FIVE: when i feel like singing, i lock myself in the bathroom, turn on the faucet and sing my lungs out in front of the mirror (that’s after pouring my feet with a dipper of water), and get out after 10 minutes of singing my favorite last-song-syndrome songs.---> haha, video mo nga 'to.

SIX: i think i’m suffering from short-term memory loss. one time, i was looking for my id comfortably hanging around my neck. ice said it’s a symptom of being corrupted by perverted anger. i wish not.----> Nakarelate ako sa situation na 'to. Ako laging may memory gap.

SEVEN: when i eat fried foods like hot dogs or scrambled eggs, ketchup is a necessity. but if i am so angry and there’s no ketchup around. i pour three tablespoons of soy sauce on my rice and sprinkle a couple pinches of salt.----> isa rin itong ka weirdohan. Maawa ka sa kidney mo.

EIGHT: i read the harry potter series with background music---soundtrack inspired by the movie adaptations. reading novels with sound effects is like watching movies. i have a pretty good imagination.----> Now I knwo harry potter fanatic ka.

NINE: i watched harry potter and prisoner of azkaban at a movie house six times. i watched the first one with friends, and the rest with just myself. i usually go solo when watching movies i highly anticipate.----> six times grabe! Isa lang ang napanood kong series ng harry potter.

TEN: my imagination scares me sometimes. i was planning to write a horror story for a time now but the images were so vivid i couldn’t translate them into words plus the fact that i usually write late at night. i guess i have to detach myself. i find the kitchen and mirrors creepy especially at night when our cat meows like a weeping child.-----> Aha! i-draw mo na lang kaya. Alam ko kung nagsisigaw ang pusa sa gabi. Bastos yan. hehehe

ELEVEN: i am not really a fan of shopping or doing grocery stuff. i easily get bored. when i am with my friends or my family, and they decide to shop, i either go to a bookstore, an audio store or a video store.----> Aha, may yaya ka.

TWELVE: i cut apples horizontally in halves. i find it easier to eat apples this way. did you know apple seeds contain cyanide? i love apples. perhaps i’m a death god like ryuk! hehe! death gods or shinigamis do hand stands when they don’t eat apples for a long time.----> I love apples too! pati balat kinakain ko.

THIRTEEN: when i’m doing something important or savoring a major daydream, bellowing my name won’t work. you should consider shaking me or say the word ‘glad’.----> Hindi ka maawat ha. Mantikang tulog? Bakit "GLAD"?

FOURTEEN: # i am very particular with details. i actually consider myself obsessive-compulsive perfectionist especially with stuff i’m interested in like in visual arts, academic reports, power point presentations, written articles, music that should be on my mp3 player, etc…----> Postive 'to. I mean, the result. Kaya pala RN ka na agad.

FIFTEEN: 15. i am a conspiracy buff. i love conspiracy theories and mysteries. i have to give dan brown (currently rereading angels and demons) and national geographic channel (my day is not complete without natgeo) credit for this. these are some of my favorite conspiracy theories and mysteries: (1) the 911 myth by zeitgeist, (2) did man really landed on the moon? (3), secret brotherhoods i.e. illuminati, priory of sion, masons (4) the gnostic gospels, (5) mystic places and structures i.e. bermuda triangle, atlantis, the nazca lines, the stongehenge, the pyramids.----> Kaya pala naka-attach palagi ang mystery sa mga posts mo. I believe walang taong nag-land sa moon.

salingPUSA said...

pakiramdam ko kabilis mo mag-type o ganado kalang lagi o galit sa keyboard..mga anung oras kaba online ha at mahanap nga kita sa YM.....

onatdonuts said...

ako rin umaga at gabing nagkakape...

kung yung iba, takot sa ipis...ako tuwang tuwa sa ipis...pag may ipis, hindi ko sila pinapatay habang nasa pader...gusto ko lumilipad sila saka ko hahampasin. haha

nung bata ako, mahilig akong mang-comatose ng ipis, yung papaluin sila ng tama lang, pero hindi sila mamamatay...tapos ilalagay ko sila sa nakatihayang tansan, tapos pupunuin ko yung ng gaas...at saka sisilaban ng buhay hahahaha

RONeiluke, RN said...

Saling pusa: Galit lang siguro ako sa keyboard! Hahaha! Mga 6 pm upto 10 ako online..hehehe! but I’m warning you, lousy akong ka-chat! Hahaha!

Onat: Hahahaha! Sa lahat ng comments sayo ang panalo! Hahaha! Kawawa naman .pala talaga ang ipis sayo! Hahaha! Gawin bang baseball ang mga ipis? Hahahaha!

Gosh you have a really troubling childhood! Hahahaha! Buti na-outgrow mo nay un… o pati ngayon ginagawa mo pa??? hahaha!

~Kinesics said...

Hey Ron- cool blog!

I think we are all weird in someway...there are things we do that we think is normal, but for some it could be weird :) I'd say be what/who you are and be happy :).

Thanks for the comments. I am not a photographer, but I love taking pics :) and Im glad you liked the pics :)

Yup, letting go is an art and honestly, it's the hardest thing. Sometimes, I question the saying "if you love him, set him free" - why set free someone you love and leave yourself miserable?

:)

Oh, well...sometimes, we have to be miserable to be able to find the best in us...and to see how much we can take in :)

~kinesics

onatdonuts said...

ahahaha


dyahe naman yun, ang laki laki ko ng mama tapos sinisilaban ko pa rin yung ipis? hahaha hindi naman troubling ang child-hood ko, masaya naman...talagang nakahiligan ko lang na makita ang mga galamay ng ipis na gumagalaw habang nasusunog sila ng buhay. haha alam mo buti nalang talaga at lumaki akong mabait joke haha kasi naisip ko, ngayon ngayon lang, haha na may tendency pala akong maging masamang tao...haha base yan sa mga trip ko nung bata pa ako. haha

_______

nga pala, naku kelan ba ang deadline ng botohan..paano ang proseso niyan? naku kailangan na kitang iboto for President hahaha

RonTuron said...

ikaw lang binoto ko sa emo awards.. sana manalo ka katukayo!

RONeiluke, RN said...

Kinesics: yep...let's be weirdos. hehehe!

hays..i'm a frustrated photographer, if i could only have a decent camera. hehehe!

"why set free someone you love and leave yourself miserable?"---hmm..good question. i guess love is sacrifice. it's never selfish :) but it's cool to know you're optimistic. that's a good sign.

peace out!

Onat: lahat nman tayo may tendency na maging masamang tao but good thing we have a choice. people are not divided into black and white. we just have to make sure the dark side stays at bay :) hehehe!

sa 17 pa deadline :) punta ka lang sa link na to---http://kundiman.net/ekwentomo-entries/

thanks, mate :)

ron: salamat mate sa pagboto! katukayo talaga kita! hahaha!

odin hood said...

kendi said...

i had fun reading this simply because we have a lot in common. such as eating at home with one feet on the chair, the conspiracy theories, coffee cups (but i go for espresso doppios), daydreams, short term memory loss, and this: writing in small letters (but i don't do that in my blog, in my other sites, i do). haha. :)

RONeiluke, RN said...

hey, ms. candy. it's really cool na napadpad ka sa yungib ko. but anyway thanks for the compliments. and you're right. words are overflowing when i'm glum. hehehe!
