Philippians 12:21

Steve Harvey giveth the crown, and Steve Harvey taketh away.

The Philippines has not won Miss Universe in more than four decades. I myself have been waiting for this moment since Dindi Gallardo lost to Dayanara Torres in 1993 (technically the first pageant I watched was in 1992 when Namibia won, but I didn't know who Miss Philippines was, nor understand the whole concept of the pageant in general).

And now that it has finally happened, it had to be like this.
Goddammit Steve Harvey. You had one job.

Holy mother of cringe.
Seriously, what in the actual f*ck.

And while it's admirable, the level of composure that the girls showed after this... blunder, I think the only acceptable way to have gone about it would be to tear the crown to pieces and throw chunks of it at the other girls.

A piece for Miss USA, a partial Miss Universe.
And a piece for Miss Colombia. She has been severely humiliated, but she still looks like a rock star.
And none for Gretchen Wieners Steve Harvey.

... Still a great night

So, so very good, and now I can't find it anywhere. Damn seasonal flavors.

What I've Been Loving Lately: House Things

Back to (ir)regular programming ;p

I have gone from "OMG this apartment is so awesome" to "who in his right mind would place the only full-length mirror in the house in the bathroom in front of the shower" (seriously, who?) so I guess it's safe to say that the honeymoon phase with the new flat is over. I still love it to bits though. And while I still have a long list of things to do before I can say I've settled down completely (and by that time I'm probably about to leave), it feels more and more like home everyday.

So I've been living here for a month now. An entire month. It's kinda nuts.
