The General December 2006 Archive

POST PARTY December 30, 2006 There are times when I can’t write my heart out on these electronic pages; there are times when words are mere beggars in the midst of truth and circumstance, when all I wish to say can never fully capture the joy and laughter – the strangeness and unease of the…

AN ASIDE FOR PHILIPPINE IDOL November 5, 2006 I make no secret of my preoccupation with and interest in Philippine Idol. I made it a habit to watch the show from Day 1, where thousands of hopefuls flocked to different parts of the country to join auditions. I cheered for Armarie Cruz, the power singer…

IN BETWEEN SIPS OF POTATO SOUP October 26, 2006 It’s been nearly a week since the operation, and I still can’t have any solid food. No matter: things are taking a turn for the better. My fever has gone down, I’m calmer, I have dozens of new words in my vocabulary (thanks to the GRE…

THE REAL FINAL DAY September 30, 2006 Today is September 30, and this is my last day at the office. Well. I’ll miss this place. I’ll miss everybody. Sigh. I’ll be gone for some time, too, before the next entry — unless I get a really cool laptop and Dreamweaver to go along with it.…

THE POST-SCRIPT August 30, 2006 I’m afraid I’ve offended a few parties with one of my previous posts. Now, mind you, my title was about me wanting a purity ring, not me lambasting everyone who doesn’t share my lifestyle. If it seemed as though my post was condemning people, please read it again. I was…

THE COUNTDOWN BEGINS… July 31, 2006 Dear God, It’s the last day of July, and I have roughly 45 days left before i go freelance again. First, I would like to thank you for allowing Philippine Idol to not imitate its Western counterparts, or it would have made a very ugly show. I’m not trying…

TRAVELS, 2006 May-June 2006 June 3, NAIA Thinking about this trip makes me go, “Yes! Another vacation/journey to the great unknown/chance to drink unbelievable amounts of free Bailey’s!” Looking at the list on the left [with the names of people I have to give gifts to] makes me wonder if I brought enough shopping money.…

LAST SHOT FOR MAY 2006 May 31, 2006 Well, looks like we have one last day before June kicks in, so let’s get on with a few things. First, against my will (and only because I wanted to see trailers) I watched The Da Vinci Code. Crappy book, crappy movie. Can someone please send Dan…

TAG, TAG April 26, 2006 It’s great how people come up with these strange tag, tag things. All I have to do is tick the box if something applies to me. In this case, the instructions are to tick the box of something you fear. No one said I couldn’t put side comments, right? I’m…
