Don't be to get tickets will be released SOON. Patience is a virtue. It's better to wait for a few more days than to part with your hard earned money because of scams.

It will be worth the wait.

An Overdue Birthday Entry For My Mom

"My mother had a great deal of trouble with me, but I think she enjoyed it."
(Mark Twain)

I really was a hell raiser during my adolescent and well into my teenage years. To be honest, my mom had it easier raising my four brothers who had been well rounded and not as much as a hellion that I was.

Since Dad was working in another country, we were ruled by my strict eldest brother, and this did not sit well with my flighty and free spirited nature. So I had a very frustrating time with my family during those years with me batting head with my mother who was trying hard to keep me in line while tearing her hair out in the process. =p

And I did say to myself, not just one time, that I would never be like her. (And I realized that this is common in the mother-daughter dynamic)

But when I graduated, had a job of my own, and then lived on my own the fights have been less frequent. I stopped seeing her as the enemy but as a mother that I can actually turn to. For some reason, an unspoken truce happened. I understood her better now and our tolerance for each other grew. We started appreciating each other.

When I become a mom myself, I valued every advice that she gave me. Having reared 5 children and 4 other grandchildren, I trust my mom's judgment and she's making me learn things on my own without being overbearing. That's a big change from before when she would counter every decision that I make. We've both have grown up. And I am glad.

Happy birthday, Mom! We love you so much. We are wishing you good health and we will always take care of you and Dad. =).

And please, try to smile for the camera. I now you are camera shy and all, but I promise you it doesn't bite. You would always look beautiful. =)

Bye-Bye, Gris.


LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- William Petersen is leaving "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," a move that might have fans of his brainy crimebuster Gil Grissom screaming bloody murder.

William Petersen will leave "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" in the middle of the upcoming season.

Petersen has agreed to return for occasional guest appearances and will remain a "CSI" executive producer but his run as an original cast member will end this coming season, executive producers Carol Mendelsohn and Naren Shankar said Tuesday.

The air date for his final episode, the season's 10th, has yet to be determined but probably will be at the beginning of 2009, the producers said. The series debuted in fall 2000.

A number of familiar characters will return in the episodes building up to Grissom's departure, among them his former colleague and flame Sara Sidle, played by Jorja Fox; the Miniature Killer and sexy Lady Heather.

"Who better to turn to when you're a scientist in crisis," Mendelsohn said jokingly of Heather (Melinda Clarke).

The decision to leave was Petersen's, the producers said, declining further comment. A call to Petersen's publicist was not returned Tuesday.

The actor had taken a break during the 2006-07 season to perform in a play, with Liev Schreiber stepping in as a visiting investigator.

The long-running show remains key for CBS: "CSI" finished last season as the network's top-rated series, ranking No. 9 among all shows with an average weekly audience of 17 million. Spinoffs "CSI: Miami" and "CSI: New York" ranked 16th and 28th, respectively.

"CSI" is ready to deal with Petersen's loss, its producers said.

"Shows lucky enough to go this long inevitably have to deal with this kind of change," Shankar told The Associated Press.

A new male investigator will join "CSI," a role that has yet to be cast.

The producers were mum about specific plot points but said that Grissom will be reappraising his life after years of high-tech forensics investigations with the Las Vegas Police Department and after facing personal turmoil.

"We're talking about a man who has suffered a great deal of loss recently... A man thinking about the next phase of his life," Shankar said.

It's wrong to characterize it as a mid-life crisis, which summons the image of someone who buys a Porsche as a solution, Shankar and Mendelsohn said; Grissom is confronting far deeper issues.

"It's Grissom in transition and Grissom asking `Who am I?"' Mendelsohn said.

Besides, Shankar said, Petersen wouldn't buy a sports car.

"Billy would only buy a Prius," the producer said.

Shankar and Mendelsohn vowed that cast changes won't change "CSI."

"What makes shows go off the rails is they forget who they are. We're a crime-mystery-forensics drama" with a focus on exceptional cases, Shankar said.

"Whoever comes in and joins the team after Grissom is going to be a different guy. But the nature of the show and what fans get out of it, that's not going to change," he said.

Petersen, in his role as executive producer, viewed "CSI" as a show about the "quiet heroics" of working people, Shankar said. That will remain true, with no new soap-opera twists or "jumping into bed."

I've always been a fan though I haven't watched an episode for so long. I'm waiting for it to end and be released on DVD so that I can indulge in my marathons a la Sopranos.

A Grissom classic:

Concentrate on what cannot lie. The evidence.

Aww, gonna miss him.

There will never be anything like this again.

R-E-U-N-I-O-N (and it's FINE TIME)

I'm not sure if I would be the first person on the net to post this blind item.

But I got it from a reliable source that a certain big, big, big 90's local band will reunite for a one-night-only concert that will surely shake up the music industry and the dormant fan base that have been eagerly awaiting for this moment.

The concert will be sponsored by a big multinational company, a big client of the company that my mole is currently working for.

The estranged members have been wooed since early this year and they only relented when they were offered a staggering amount of Php ??, 000,000.00. =). Ain't that a lot of zeroes?

The reuniting band members have already signed the contract and this may-jah event will happen sometime around the last quarter of this year. The venue might probably be at the Pasay Area. Somewhere near that humongous Mall. They are expecting an audience of 35,000.

I've seen the teaser posters that they will release soon.

I can only say this, WITH A SMILE: SA WAKAS! =)

Lost..but not found

Somewhere in between packing my bag for the Medicall Sportsfest and arriving home yesterday after the trip I manage to lose our 9 month old digicam.

Sucks big time.

I don't know what happened. I remembered taking test shots when I checked the batteries. I remembered asking my husband to put the camera in its case. When I got on the bus and I didn't find it on my bag I figured I just left it at home but when I got home we can't find it anywhere.

It must have slipped out of my backpack when I got my wallet out to pay for the cab fare. It was dark because it was 5 am in the morning so I didn't notice anything.

Well, it had been a good camera. We made the most out of it. We had fun using it. I'm gonna miss our Canon A550.

In a few months or so, if our budget permits, we might go for a DSLR.

Back when I was still writing and taking pictures for Tower Publishing and some other magazines, I was bent on getting a Canon 350D for myself. But I stopped writing a couple of years ago, and I didn't get that 350D that I was dreaming.

Anyway, we still have our old Sony Digicam. It's ancient but it gets the work done.

Until then, goodbye A550, goodbye!!!!

Reminiscing, the first time that we used the camera:

Lover Boy, you should just stop right now.

Karma bites in the ass. Hard.

Oh, and the same goes for the daughter that treats her mom like crap.

(Please see ELEKTRA in previous entries).

Blind items are cool! They're obvious and vague at the same time. I love 'em!
