I’ve been staying up real late every night … probably that would explain why I look the way I look … the pimples never clear …. So after being warned by sincere friends that if I don’t sleep early, I will age like a sponge, I got myself to bed at around 10pm last night … I turned off the light, and I turned on the TV and got hooked in the movie which was being shown on HBO and the name of which I didn’t even know of … And guess what? I didn’t sleep until midnight … What a failure …. Anyway, I liked the movie a lot … the storyline, the leading actor and actress, and the leading actress’ father’s favorite poem … Here it is … Brown Penny by William Butlet Yeats …

   I whispered, 'I am too young,'
And then, 'I am old enough';
Wherefore I threw a penny
To find out if I might love.
'Go and love, go and love, young man,
If the lady be young and fair.'
Ah, penny, brown penny, brown penny,
I am looped in the loops of her hair.

O love is the crooked thing,
There is nobody wise enough
To find out all that is in it,
For he would be thinking of love
Till the stars had run away
And the shadows eaten the moon.
Ah, penny, brown penny, brown penny,
One cannot begin it too soon.
