Et tu, Libya?

Hi!  Renxkyoko Iglesias randomly musing again.

I’m taking a break from watching the news on CNN. I feel saddened and distressed  at the images shown on TV.  Has anyone of you  seen that video clip of a guy biking away trying to escape the tsunami?  Last night, I had a nightmare that was me on the bike.  The terror that I felt was just so real.  Sheeesh ! By the way, do you know there are people who are actually fascinated watching these disaster video clips and do you know what these people call them? Disaster Porn. WTF !

This kind of people are so disgusting I want to puke, the lowest of the low…..

* sigh*    Blabbering on……..

My brother arrived home late last night from San Francisco.  He told me he and his lady flatmate went out the other night for a St. Patrick’s Day dinner. (  *_*)”  Oooh. Then, he showed me her picture on his cellphone and yeah, she’s a cutie alright. Actually, that’s an understatement. She’s stunning.  She was a cover girl of several magazines, like Curve, and her type is someone like Catherine Zeta Jones.   Well, she was a model or something….. was on Tyra Banks’ modelling show. Didn’t win, though.  So, anyways, while I was looking at some pics, Bro received a text from her, and I was like, whoa, what’s this?  It says ” What are you doing now? ”   Well, hello. ( ^o^)   A blow by blow account of his whereabouts?  Heheh….

I can’t focus… I’m watching CNN ( I just said I wouldn’t )…. Wow ! Libya’s getting hit, 110 Tomahawk cruise  missiles now, deployed by France, Great Britain  and US , an authorized and approved action  by the UN…..

In Japan, more than 7600 are confirmed dead, 12000 still missing and presumed dead,  foodstuffs are contaminated so distribution of food has been halted…..and the  nuclear meltdown…. a deadly 1,2 3 punch. Why am I so affected by these events?  I’m beginning to know myself. Or maybe , I’m just thinking too much.  Or getting too unnecessarily involved , even if only in spirit.  After all, I was part of the group that  actively campaigned for  Hillary Clinton, and I was the youngest .  That was the beginning of my politicized life, I think. 

So, what else will happen on top of that ?  Who knows?   We are certainly living in interesting times.

Mom just donated some $$$ through American Red Cross online. I donated just $25. I’m broke. But I’m willing to donate some more when I get my pitiful salary. I try to walk my talk.

  My sister’s Golden Boy, ( bf ) is glued to the TV since this morning ( well, he practically lives here ) and is again talking about enlisting. My sister is getting angry again. ^o^

I’m sorry this blog is so disorganized and sporadic. I just write down anything that comes to mind.  So, I guess it’s time to say bye for now. PEACE!!!

  1. I saw a car trying to get out of town while the tsunami was about to hit, but I didn’t see the motorcycle one. There are some pretty sick people out there. It’s quite sad.

    Teehee, that is so cool your brother is living with her. It’s almost like she is a celebrity. 😛 Awww, that is cute how she was asking what he was doing. 😀

    Wow… that is a lot… I hope they can find all the 12000 people. That would be awesome.

    Awww, that is nice of your mom and you to donate. I would totally donate but sadly I have no money right now. 😦

  2. Oh, I think it was just a bicycle ! Aaargh.

    I know right? Darn, she is beautiful, like a Hollywood actress, or a cosmetics model.

    Oh, it isn’t search and rescue mission anymore. It’s recovery of bodies now.

    Mom always donates. When hillary Clinton ran in the Primaries, Mom donated almost $2,000 to her campaign funds.

  3. Ahahaha, I don’t know why I thought of a motorcycle. LOL! But yea…that would be scary trying to get away on a bike. :/

    That is really sad that they are recovering only bodies now. T^T

    Oh wow, that is a lot of money. :O That is really nice of your mom though.

    • It looked like he didn’t… get away, I mean. T_T

      Dad didn’t know about the exact amount, hehe. Mom lied. She said just $ 500. Dad was ok with that, but I’m sure he’d flipped if he found out it was so much more than that.

  4. T^T.

    LOL! Dads tend to be that way with money. 😛

    • It took me a while, though. Some friends helped out, and it was like a walkthrough…. like,” do you see that , that one on the upper left , okay , click that”….

  6. Even though you took the buoyant route of talking about the tragedies in Japan and Libya, the genuine concern is there. I just wrote something similar to this piece of yours, and I’m glad to know that you are walking your talk, that you are doing what you can (donating)to those who badly need it. 🙂

  7. Disaster porn? Is that what it calls? I felt sorry for everythings had happened, i tried to avoid watching too much of those, because I ALWAYS had nightmare because of it… I was once lived (and worked on reconstruction organisation)in Banda Aceh after Tsunami 2004 (same scale with Japan 2011), and just seeing the remains of the deconstruction Tsunami has made, makes me really sad.

    Btw you’re family very generous.. what a family! And your brother dating his model flatemate ^_^ Wow…
