WALANG MAGANDA SA UMAGA, UNAPPETIZING BREAKFAST AND SANA'Y WAG NA HUMIRIT
There is a reason why I don't watch the local morning shows. Aside from the fact that none of them are actually good (I'm so sick of hosts asking their callers to sing the new Viva Hot Babes song, "Kikay"), the news depresses me. Some are gross. Some are trying too hard to be funny. Some are just plain meaningless. Some even make me cry.
Like the ones I caught this morning: a 6-year-old shot to death by a neighbor and a 9-year-old raped by her Stepdad. And the clincher: she is now pregnant. (I know. Pregnant.) (I know. 9-year-old!!!)
I think the whole point of a morning show should be to encourage everyone to look forward to a beautiful day. Its a fact that 99% of people are cranky in the morning. We're sluggish. We don't want to get up. We hate our alarm clocks. We want to stay in bed longer, but can't. And the last thing you want to see and hear about, first thing in the morning, when you turn on the TV, are stories about kids being killed and abused or a bunch of drunk people ending up killing each other because someone accidentally bumped someone, or something as utterly shallow as that.
So that's why I don't really watch the local morning shows.
And that is why I only watch 3 shows in the morning: MTV, Channel V (because I sing along and sometimes, dance to the music. hehehe!) and my ultimate favorite: Globe Trekker (which starts at 7am, everday). Actually, there are 4 (If I still catch Conan on Etc when I wake up).
Speaking of Globe Trekker, they're looking for a new host...here in Asia!!! And it's really my dream job and I think I would do a good job being a travel host. Kaya lang, I need to submit a 3-minute video of myself introducing a favorite travel destination of mine. I was planning on doing the video during my next climb (which is I don't really know when). But it's due on the 11th. And even if I go climbing this weekend, which I actually might, there's just no time. Shuuccckksss!
Anyway, have a great morning, everyone!

Loves the beach, wishes she had more time and money to travel, recently got hooked to
climbing mountains, reads anything she can get her hands on, frustrated writer, adores her
3-year-old Lhasa Apso, Tashi,
constantly needs caffeine, wonders when she'll quit smoking, and will most
likely die due to liver complications from drinking too much (if the cigarettes
doesn't get to her lungs first). Can't live without accessories especially
big, dangling earrings, shoe freak (aren't we all?), sucker for discovering
hole-in-the-wall restaurants, will ingest anything spicy, enjoys giving and receiving
massages, addicted to Friends, Sex and the City and CSI, goes gaga over kids, dreams of
being alone with Jim Morrison and smoking a joint with Bob
Marley. Would love to party with Gwen Stefani, shop with Patricia Field, write poetry with
Maya Angelou and have Sting, Nelson Mandela, Mark Twain and Bono over for
