Rambling to 2007

Fridays uncommonly serve me as downers. And during uncommon circumstances we’re left to wonder who moved the cheese and wonder further who wrote the Celestine manuscript?

I’m guessing it’s that feeling of sadness and longing to be at home with family and friends when away from them.

Now, what would I be doing if I were back at home? I’d be asleep.

Maybe it’s that tiredness within me. Nah! Having read and assumingly understood what James Redfield prophesied on, it’s just my control dramas now playing.

Still, in my state of destitution, in the face of all my fashion transgressions, as my spa/sauna-deprived circumstances, I am thankful. My nomadic, adorable Filipino friends in Port Moresby keep me at bay from insanity-ville. My Caucasian comrades keep me intoxicated every so often and have them to thank for a marine social life onboard MV Dolphin Blue. I have a job that runs my brain at minimum function deterring further malfunction. My family rings me up regularly for hi’s and hellos during which effecting my dollar purchasing power as well. My blog… well my blog as my life needs some revision this coming 2007.

I might exploit this into a long, mushy, rambling story. I better do something else. [No, I don’t masturbate anymore.]

Filler

While I leisurely hustle along year-end reports in protest to my company’s hostile policy on Christmas holidays, indulge me as my best bud fills-in.

Truth is, I didn’t really ask him to write me something, nor did I ask him to flood my recently flushed Friendster inbox which to mention in passing, digression intended, a laborious endeavor in a dial-up environment.

Warning: No English subtitle provided. Protests are exhausting.

You Organize a Wedding, You Learn


Who doesn’t want good entertainment--bitter forty-seven year old spinsters resentful of people who talk openly about sex?

What’s one to do for amusement in a country where your cable subscription is a fiber optic concoction of crying Koreans, flying Chinese, dancing Indians and Filipino crap? You might want to attend a wedding.

Walking-in to a wedding nowadays is as non-existent as Debbie Gibson. That means you have to be invited and might be obliged to RSVP your attendance to secure yourself a seat inclusive of free food, free drinks, souvenirs and of course free entertainment—the wedding itself.

The amount of pleasure or amusement we get from something is of course a matter of taste or in most cases the lack of it. Take for instance your friends’ wedding. There could be many factors why you loved the ceremony and enjoyed the food or why you decided to play faultfinder on the most special day of their lives.

Personal reasons for example: you hate the bride, you’re envious of the bride’s good fortune, your own wedding would’ve looked like a pile of shit had you held it next to theirs, your own marriage is a joke or you’re the only person at the reception who’s fatter than the fat bride, etcetera.

I guess it’s a lesson I have to learn: Wedding is show business. And to organize such, one must always consider the audience. Sit them for the free food and freebies for your show. And remember that they’re there to be pleased.

In retrospect I am of course all for this show business crap. Now I have another pathetic fallback reason against weddings incase my excommunicable issues against the sacrament of marriage are proven wrong.

Extraneously Yours #002


Amang turns 97

My new claim to fame is a code in my DNA indicating that I might actually live for a century. Grandpa turned 97 yesterday and except for his hideous looking platter-sized specs that aid his wading eye sight through endless nights of HBOs, Amang is functioning well! Hurrah!!!


On Choosing to be gay

Coming out of the closet is a matter of choice, being gay or lesbian is not.
But if you feel differently, if you think you need to buy time and want to think about it then do. Don’t let them bully you into labeling your own self.

Here’s a penny’s worth darling:
Bisexuality is a lifestyle. Metrosexuality is not a word.


My best friend’s wedding

Finally, it’s over and done with!

To my other best friends… pats and bang…no I’m not going to fix no more weddings, not even yours.


Love you Ma!

To the only woman in my life…ma, happy birthday!
