I have moved

Good day, everyone!

Thank you for everyone who has thus far followed Pardon the Innuendos but I have moved to a different blog — deelaytful.

If you have been following me here, please do drop by a visit at deelaytful as well. If you are reading this for the first time and want to get to know me better, please go there as well.

Thank you so much! I have tried to create a divide between the two — keeping deelaytful for literary works and innuendos for a “blog-blog” but lately most of my traffic has been centered there, so there. I do plan on merging the two (I have no idea how to merge blogs though) especially since I will be getting back on track with my play reading challenge as soon as my tarot writing challenge gets done.

Happy reading!

2 Poems

I know I promised this not to become a literary blog. But my lack of updates here are just embarassing and, to save my blog from total obscurity, here are two pieces of poetry I wrote. *I solemnly swear to write a super-awesome blog entry at the end of the semester.*  BOW.

10 LITTLE INDIAN BOYS

Ten Little Indians went to a party of mine

One overslept and then there were nine

 

Nine Little Indians running in office slate

One ate all the power and then there were eight

 

Eight Little Indians gawking at hot men

One followed nine and then there were seven

 

Seven Little Indians rehearsing for weeks

One turned off his phone and then there were six

 

Six Little Indians singing with artistic drive

One hit too high a note and then there were five

 

Five Little Indians sleeping at the floor

One thought himself too pretty and then there were four

 

Four Little Indians drinking juice alcohol-free

One just wanted to fuck and then there were three

 

Three Little Indians visited the zoo

One became a parrot and then there were two

 

Two Little Indians bored by men gone

One left to meet new people and then there was one

 

One Little Indian left all alone

Oh please, he’s just going to leave and then there’ll be none

As I take in the fervor of the midnight air.

AND EVERYWHERE AROUND, THE CITY COMES TO LIFE WITH ME AS ITS CENTER.

Hardly a week

Sometimes I forgot that it’s just been more or less a week of classes this sem. Heavy courses plus rehearsals are taking their toll on me. I just never remembered me this busy before this early into the year but, hey, no complaints.

I kind of want to talk about my classes for this sem:

Theatre 132 (Acting 2) – is the subject I’m sort of nervous about the most. I personally think I could have done a lot better in 131 and I really need to step up my game for Acting 2. Especially since there are only FIVE of us in class and we need to mount a full-length play by March. I may not  be strictly a performance major but I think it would be pretty nice to have a good foundation in practical, and non-theoretical, acting.

Speech 124 (Chamber Theater)- was a surprise. I generally thought all Interpretation classes were supposed to be easy. (Well, 121 was kind of easy.) The syllabus surprised me A LOT with the number of productions we have for this semester. The reason I’m taking a higher interpretation class is because I feel that with Speech 121: SALIGIA, I focused a lot more on the directing aspect of the prod, that I forgot that I was also performing! This time around, I’ll focus on being a stronger performer.

French 11 – is the killer. I honestly don’t understand anything. I took French 10 three and a half years ago and I barely passed it. And now I’m in French 11. Thank god my professor’s perky and reviews French 10 because otherwise I’m dead. Seriously. And with a sem like mine, I honestly can’t afford to stress over a language elective.

CW 130 (equivalent to Theatre 171 Playwriting) – has another surprise! A final production. I feel a little apprehensive but I’m not backing down. In fact, I’m sort of excited to begin our sem. 

PI 100 (Rizal) – no comment so fa
