joannaladrido 's Thoughts:

I’ve been addicted to the Foals lately courtesy of my boyfriend who’s been playing the band in his ipod speakers whenever I ride in his car. I ended up getting it in my ipod and today, the song played after I put my ipod on shuffle mode since I could not decide on what to wear so I had my ipod do the choosing for me.

I bestowed yet again the decision making power to my ipod after extreme boredom has led me to play yet again the IPOD game. I’ve played this around 5x already and the funny thing is, my ipod always knows the answers to important life questions. Scroll down in this entry to see how you can play the IPOD game too!

Anyway,I wore this military structured jacket by uber-fabulous designer John Herrera since 1) it seemed appropriate to the song my ipod chose for me and 2) we were watching Valkyrie and I wanted to dress all soul-ja since it was a war movie and all. Made it all the more military by adding a vintage mother of pearl and silver broach I found in an antique furniture shop in Tiendesitas years ago for P100 or USD 2. Wore my liquid leggings and a black shift dress from Forever 21 under the coat.

Ate a high-calorie but delicious meal at Elbert’s Philly Cheese Steak, a newly opened sandwich joint at Rockwell byManila’s own steak enthusiast and guru. I highly recommend it. Absolutely to die for!

Got depressed after watching Valkyrie, I began to remember the BBC documentary I bought in the DVD store in Powerplant and watched entitled Auschwitz. It was a three hour documentary showcasing the horrors done at the concentration camp during the 2nd World War. After watching it, i got so depressed and outraged. I thought I was okay then Valkyrie kind of reminded me about it again. Sigh.

THE IPOD GAME

Step 1: Put your IPod on shuffle mode
Step 2: Answer each question with the title of the song
Step 3: Press “Next” on your IPod for the next answer.

1. What do people assume when they first look at me?

Hot Child in the City- Joan Jett

(Hot Child in the city,running wild and looking pretty!!! hahaha love it)

2. What will be a big challenge in life for me?

Circus- Britney Spears (I have a big phobia of clowns and mascots. Hahahathat explains why I never went to a circus. The freak show and the fire eating man always gave me the creeps.I hate it. I’m afraid of even the wax displays on Ripley’s believe it or not…)

3. Am I a good boyfriend/girlfriend?

Take Me Out- Franz Ferinand

(I have got to pay attention to my boyfriend more I guess and take him out this Valentines?)

4. Do I have a Secret Admirer?

Joanna – Kool and the gang (Narcissistic much? That means yes? Hahaha The eighties song was in my ipod since my boyfriend and I always laughed about the chorus… “Jo-a-nna, I love youuuu!!!” hahahaha)

5. Will I ever become manically depressed in my life?

Forever- Chris Brown

(That’s not a good sign. I think.)

7. Is someone trying to kill me?

The Lady in Red – Chris de Burgh (I am officially afraid of anyone in red!!!)

8. What is my sexual preference?

Angel Love – Samantha James (Hmmm. City of Angels much? haha)

9. What am I afraid of?

When it Rains- Paramore (True… I hate the rain. I get rashes and break into hives whenever it rains!!! Haha)

10. What will I be doing in a few years?

Escape (The Pinacolada song)- Rupert Holmes (Hurray!!!! i cannot wait for a vacation….the ultimate drunken song!!! hahaha)

11. What is some good advice for me?

Stripper- The Soho Dolls (Lyrics go-
Dont touch the girls,
Dont kiss the girls,
I have the right to pull the girls.
Get in a fight,
On every night,)

12. What should I do instead of this quiz?

Build Me Up Buttercup- The Foundations (hahahaha)

13. Will you get married?

Sorry- Madonna (So I guess that means NO…)

14. What is the story of your life?

Lullabye- Shawn Mullins

( One of my favorite songs ever!!! “She’s seen her share of devils in this angel town….”)

15. How can you get ahead in life?

Secret- The Pierces (hahahaha so I guess I can’t know ever)

16. What is the best thing about your friends?

One Week of Danger- The Virgins (I agree. My friends are dangerous people and I love them for it!!! Hahaha they give me 7 days of adventure!!!!)

17. What song describes you?

Disturbia- Rihanna (Cause my mind is on disturbia, it’slike the darkness is light. hahahaha I get it i am very strange!!!!)

18. How does the world see you?

That’s Not My Name- The Ting Tings (I agree. Hahaha I have this silly habit of calling people names I invent in my head since they look like the name. For instance, a girl named Pauline is someone I always call "April"since she looks like an April! Hahaha same goes for a guy friend who is originally named Peter but who I call Robert. What’s worse is, my friends end up calling them the invented names… and they are known by my circle by their invented names!!)

19. Will you have a happy life?

Supermassive Black Hole- Muse

(I guess that means NO right? hahaha)

20. How can I make myself happy?

Let It Rock- Kevin Rudolf
(Yeah baby!!!)

21. What should you do with your life?

Meddle- Little Boots

(SERIOUSLY!)

22. Will you ever have children?

That’s What You Get- Paramore

(That’s what you get when you let your heart win? I am officially scared!!!!)
