Unless a magical shit has turned my friends into midgets suffering from bad case of hair loss and some dental disease, I’m assuming all of these profile photos of bald, toothless beings on my friendster list are human babies.

What happened to the Hong-Kong-domestic-helper-turned-slut shots? Or the I-have-a-PVC-sunflower-infested-hat-and-I’m-holding-it-like-my-life-depended-on-it poses? Or the I’ve-been-to Europe-and-you-haven’t pictorials? Gawwd where are my friends?

These babies aren’t my friends. They’re my nieces, my nephews. I bet one day they’ll show up at my doorstep and accuse me of that-godfather-who-never-went-to-their-Christening where their parents who were thoughtful smart-asses wrote my name on the sponsor list in spite of me and my absence during the rites.

So I wonder why they are posing as my friends.

My friends party hard! My friends eat COSMO for breakfast and chew VOGUE for lunch. They dine with VISA. They chain smoke. They drink too much coffee and live on tequila. They don’t watch Tagalog movies (atleast they pretend not to). They pick-on my bad English. Among us them, one’s as promiscuous as the next. They bang their heads with Alanis and Tori Amos. They gyrate with INOJ. They sleep late and wake-up later. They’re my college friends…that is was is our lifestyle…

Perhaps they’ve left. Some infant on a crying-fit vigil is standing-in for them. Some new born shitting on his diapers has taken their place. Maybe they’re all gone.

Maybe I stayed behind.

Your friendster friends are different from those in your blogroll. We might not be updating much, but we're still the same dipshits you've grown to appreciate.

At least I am.

Ha haa, miss you! Muah!

Well I am not really a friendster fan and usually just use it to get in touch with relatives or old friends and classmates.

But I really like the vivid descriptions you just made. Hahhahahha

Hindi ko kinakrir Friendster ko, pero kapag dinadalaw ko, nakikita ko na lang yung mga friends ko may mga junakis na ever, habang ang family namin naghihintay ng apo (too bad, kakahiwalay lang ng brother ko).

Naku huh! Huwag silang umasa sa akin!

haha ^_^ may friendster pa pala i thought i was so archives na.

people boast it's a normal defense mechanism because they don't want to be left behind.
