Somewhere in the Middle by Dishwalla

"Somewhere In The Middle"

I was out the other day
and I saw you in your big black car
and I was waving as you were passing
cause I know who you are
you had this look that of an angel
it was such a bad disguise
did you think for second I would not realize

tripping hard falling down onto the ground
cause I can't stand up
and I can't fall down
cause I'm somewhere in the middle of this

I was out the other night
and I saw you so we had a fight
it was late and I was lonely
and its such a long way home
so I asked you if you'd join me
for a single last call drink
so you turned and bought us 2
and you didn't even blink
you had this look that of an angel
it was such a bad disguise
when you drink it makes you angry
when I drink I want you more and more and more

tripping hard falling down onto the ground
cause I can't stand up
and I can't fall down
and I'm somewhere in the middle of this

well I find it hard
I always tried to find the sane life
but I don't like the way things are
and I keep falling to my knees
somewhere in the middle of this

Christmas Songs

Do you know that the longest celebration of Christmas of Christmas was here in Philippines.It started with "Simbang Gabi" or midnight mass in December 16 to December 24. It ends in the first week of January after the celebration of the feast of three kings.I would like to share to you some of my favorite Christmas songs which I usually heard from "Simbang Gabi".

O Holy Night

O Holy Night! The stars are brightly shining,
It is the night of the dear Saviour's birth.
Long lay the world in sin and error pining.
Till He appeared and the Spirit felt its worth.
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.
Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices!
O night divine, the night when Christ was born;
O night, O Holy Night , O night divine!
O night, O Holy Night , O night divine!

Led by the light of faith serenely beaming,
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand.
O'er the world a star is sweetly gleaming,
Now come the wisemen from out of the Orient land.
The King of kings lay thus lowly manger;
In all our trials born to be our friends.
He knows our need, our weakness is no stranger,
Behold your King! Before him lowly bend!
Behold your King! Before him lowly bend!

Truly He taught us to love one another,
His law is love and His gospel is peace.
Chains he shall break, for the slave is our brother.
And in his name all oppression shall cease.
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
With all our hearts we praise His holy name.
Christ is the Lord! Then ever, ever praise we,
His power and glory ever more proclaim!
His power and glory ever more proclaim!

O Come All Ye Faithful

O Come All Ye Faithful
Joyful and triumphant,
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem.
Come and behold Him,
Born the King of Angels;
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.

O Sing, choirs of angels,
Sing in exultation,
Sing all that hear in heaven God's holy word.
Give to our Father glory in the Highest;
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.

All Hail! Lord, we greet Thee,
Born this happy morning,
O Jesus! for evermore be Thy name adored.
Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing;
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.

A Christmas Gift for Myself

Its thirteen days before Christmas and everyone are so excited for the holiday season. People are busy shopping gifts for their family and friends. But wait a minute, have you ever wish for something that you really want to receive this Christmas? Do you always hope that Santa Clause would grant these simple wish of yours? I always wish for brand new watch this Christmas. It must be analog fashionable watch , preferably "military green" colored and perfect for day and evening wear.

Yesterday, one of my friend told me about TOCS Watches. She said that TOCS™ is a company that creates bold fashion forward wristwatches using high tech, shock resistant materials. There are many colors to choose from and I think I am lucky because there is a "military green" colored watch which is my favorite. These items where even mentioned in Oprah Winfrey's O Magazine, as part of "The O List 2008 (Holiday Edition) Great Gifts under $100.00 including Oprah's All - Time Favorites." In the December 2008 issue, page 88, of the magazine , it was stated there that "Wrist candy revisited: Round or barrel shaped, some with stylized surreal-looking numbers, Tocs boost neutral clothes with a hit of Crayola color." I am really excited the first time I heard it from my friend. I think I don't need to wait for Santa. What I like most about these TOCS Watches is that it is very affordable.

So the next thing I do is to visit their online store and Purchase TOCS watches. One for me and one for my friend who inform me about it. I think this the one of the best Christmas gift I ever had for my self.


Simple tips to avoid gaining weight this Holiday Season

During Holiday season,we always have parties and reunion with family and friends.With all the joy and good cheer, watching your weight can either become impossible or a complete chore.Let me share you some simple tips how to avoid gaining weight this Christmas season which I've read from Nestle Magazine.The first thing to remember is that do not feel pressured to eat more just because it is Christmas. Some people eat a lot during parties because they feel it is expected of them or they think it is impolite to refuse the food. Then, try eat a little something like crackers or fruit before you go to a party.You will tend to stuff yourself in the party if you go with empty stomach.In a sit-down dinner, try to sit beside someone you like.By doing so, you will be focused on talking and not on eating.Drink alcoholic beverages only after you have eaten.Alcohol lowers your inhibitions and increases hunger.

Gingerbread Village

The Tinapayan Bakeshop in Atrium Mall in Iloilo City display their annual Christmas food display as "Gingerbread Village." It started last November until the first week of January next year.The village was almost complete. There were houses, ice skating arena, church, carnival ,a train that makes it way around the village and many more. You can also have your own gingerbread house at your home because they are actually for sale for Php 750 only (around $16).It makes me wonder, how they were able to form the bread into beautiful houses???

A Heavenly Smile

The alignment of planets Venus and Jupiter making it appear as sparkling eyes complimenting to the 1st quarter moon shaped like lips smiling beautifully made the eve of December 1,2008 a heavenly smiling figure.There's no interpretation for this on the part of the astrologist's as of this moment.

But let us make our genius interpretation for such a scenic heavenly display.It has something to represent a smiling face staring at you if you look at it.It denotes glory and happiness.Maybe a grand Christmas celebration ahead of us.It is probable that the incoming year would be abundant because good graces will pour in.It would be possible if we work harder.

Furthermore, it reminds us that global crisis is not a threat but a challenge.It makes a person durable and ready to face obstacles.So, SMILE a heavenly smile.Do not frown...:)
