Empty Oprah Syndrome

Photo from Random Thoughts.
After 25 years of giving us daily informative, educational, funny and touching stories (not to mention the happy headaches)... Oprah finally said goodbye on television. It's been four days since Oprah's final episode and I bet lots and lots of people are starting to develop the EOS or Empty Oprah Syndrome. It is like you have lost a friend or someone dear to you who you can share your secrets, open up your feelings and ideas without being judged.

Oh, well, we can still see her in OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network) and we can still read her updates at and through her Twitter account (@oprah).

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

Something to look forward to in cinemas this month is Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, of course, with Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) leading the group of pirates and Angelica (Penelope Cruz) in the search for the Fountain of Youth.

You can read the plot of the movie in Wikipedia.

Kate doing her own grocery

Photo from here.
Kate is still down to earth! 

The Duchess of Cambridge, despite the title, still does her own grocery shopping wearing common clothes--jeans, sweater and ballet flats. I am just so proud of her... no royal air, just the plain and "commoner" Kate that we fell in love with.

Pacquiao beat Mosley via unanimous decision

From Reuters.
It's still Pacquiao! But, I have to say that it was the most boring fight ever of Pacman. I thought he had Mosley at round 3 but he relaxed a bit (so much) that they ended in round 12. And the referee called a knock down on Pacman on round 10 when it wasn't really the case when they played a replay. I was nervous at that point, but, still I wasn't fully impressed of the outcome of the fight.

What's next for Pacman? Mayweather?

Congrats Pacman for making the Filipinos proud again!

Side comments:

Charice Pempengco made the National Historical Commission proud for singing the Philippine National Anthem right. That's how we should do it fellow Filipinos.

Jamie Foxx should have sang the US National Anthem. Who's that guy who did that?

LL Cool J made Shane Mosley's entrance cool enough to make me nervous for Pacman. He made the crowd go wild.

Jimmy Jamison, on the other hand, made the crowd be quiet by singing Eye of the Tiger. It was as if I was attending a mass. It was the most unimpressive entrance of Pacman. It was sort of predictable. I wish they chose the Black Eyed Peas.

Random Thoughts: Pacquiao vs. Mosley

Goodbye My Lover by James Blunt

Shucks! Still aching. It is not easy but I will get by. How long has it been? Seems like forever.


Did I disappoint you or let you down?
Should I be feeling guilty or let the judges frown?
'Cause I saw the end before we'd begun,
Yes I saw you were blinded and I knew I had won.
So I took what's mine by eternal right.
Took your soul out into the night.
It may be over but it won't stop there,
I am here for you if you'd only care.
You touched my heart you touched my soul.
You changed my life and all my goals.
And love is blind and that I knew when,
My heart was blinded by you.
I've kissed your lips and held your hand.
Shared your dreams and shared your bed.
I know you well, I know your smell.
I've been addicted to you.

Chorus (2x)
Goodbye my lover.
Goodbye my friend.
You have been the one.
You have been the one for me.

I am a dreamer and when I wake,
You can't break my spirit - it's my dreams you take.

And as you move on, remember me,
Remember us and all we used to be
I've seen you cry, I've seen you smile.
I've watched you sleeping for a while.
I'd be the father of your child.
I'd spend a lifetime with you.
I know your fears and you know mine.
We've had our doubts but now we're fine,
And I love you, I swear that's true.
I cannot live without you.

Chorus (2x)
Goodbye my lover.
Goodbye my friend.
You have been the one.
You have been the one for me.

And I still hold your hand in mine.
In mine when I'm asleep.
And I will bear my soul in time,
When I'm kneeling at your feet.

Chorus (2x)
Goodbye my lover.
Goodbye my friend.
You have been the one.
You have been the one for me.

Outro (2x)
I'm so hollow, baby, I'm so hollow.
I'm so, I'm so, I'm so hollow.

Osama Bin Laden Is Dead

Osama Bin Laden is dead.

The most wanted terrorist was killed by the elite US armed forces Monday. His body was quickly buried at sea to finally put an end to a decade of hiding.

"Justice has been done," President Obama said in his announcement at the White House.
