Rick Astley Sings "Cry For Help"...

paid for by members of M.A.D. (chos!)

rain -17 °C


"You're being way too self-righteous, you know?" said Super, leaning his tall frame on a chair, "It's just drugs. It's not like I'm a mass murderer."

I scoffed, "Sus! Use up more of that stuff, and you might well turn out to be."

"Haller! I can control it naman no? Hindi ako addict," he smiles, "I just don't want to stop yet."

He laughed as I threw some chips at him.

"It's not funny. You're spending way too much and you can't effin' afford it," I said seriously, "Aminin mo, madami ka na nautangan dahil diyan sa bisyo mo noh?"

Super went all quiet and then said, "It's easy for you to say those things coz you're not hooked to it. Do you think I don't have an idea as to what I'm getting myself into?"

"Yun nga eh! Alam mo naman pala?! Bakit di ka pa tumigil?" I ask him, "Every weekend halos nag-gaganyan ka! You even told me na once you stole some drugs pa from your friends."

I added, "And you got fired from your job because ang dami mong absent."

He didn't answer. Just shrugged his shoulders and lit a cigarette.

"You're probably seeing me as one of those "uncool" people who just don't get the idea of how much fun it is," I continued, "How much it makes you happy having friends to do it with and how fabulous you think your new barkada is. Aba, mas gugustuhin kong magmukhang baduy kesa matulad sa inyo no."

"It's hard to see you like this," I said to him, "Sobrang nagbago ka na. You have mood swings and your health isn't improving."

I continued, "Do you even know what your so-called partee friends say about you? Do you know what rumors are spreading about you? I may be an intrusive and self-righteous person but I would never say those things to other people about you."

He was still not talking, but I could see he was crying.

"I can't believe you turned out to be someone who would find happiness in a pill," I added.

I kept quiet. I've been called "Mudra" before by some people because apparently I like to "meddle". Mas gugustuhin ko yatang matawag na pakialamero, but I still won't be a someone who let his friend destroy his life.

Super was a good friend of mine. I say "was" because today, we don't talk much anymore. He runs around with a different crowd.

And no, you don't know him. I think.

Amorsolo's Awkward Acquaintance...

sunny -17 °C


It was Salary Saturday and Amorsolo and I were in Glorietta that morning, shopping as usual.

"Hindi ba nakakahiya ang suot ko?" asked Amorsolo. He was wearing a plain brown shirt (which I knew he wore because it emphasized and showed his collar bone) and a simple pair of gray shorts. Footwear consisted of dirty-white havaiannas.

"Ok lang yan, marse. Ganyan daw pag mayaman; kebs na sa pag-aayos ng sarili pag humarap sa public eye," I answered, "Nasa pagdadala lang yan."

"Are you saying that I look like someone who's lost interest in looking fashionable?" he asked incredulously.

"Well, considering na mukha kang provincial P.E. teacher ng isang mababang paaralan..." I replied.

He punched my arm playfully and said, "Eeeeeeh!"

As is our usual habit when in the mall, we were checking out the meat market. Andaming cute nung umagang yun.

"Remember, we have to meet Agent later sa cinema," I reminded Amorsolo.

Amorsolo nodded and then pointed at the escalator, "Tignan mo yung tayo nung baklita! Parang tanga!"

I burst out laughing when I saw the guy. His arms were spread out wide and holding the bannisters and his legs were crossed. I think he noticed that he was the object of our ridicule, which made me feel bad, so I pushed Amorsolo up the other escalator.

We met Agent in front of the ticket booths and we continued with our shopping.

We decided to check out what's new in Zara.

I saw a fabulous looking knit green jacket. I asked Agent to model it for me.

"Bookie, it's worth P4000!" he exclaimed.

"I know I know!" I said, exasperated.

Amorsolo taunted me, "Honey, not only can it not fit you, you can't afford it either."

I pouted, "Payn payn pakshit ka."

I saw several other items in the mall which couldn't fit me and couldn't be afforded by my meager salary.

Agent then asked if we could go up to buy Orange Julius.

I agreed only if he bought me one, too, as I had never tried that drink.

He ok'd and so we went up.

We got to the Dairy Queen area and Agent made the orders. Amorsolo declined Agent's free drink.

And then...

"Ohmahgawd Buquiiiiir! Tignan mo kung sino yung cashier!" Amorsolo stage-whispered to me, elbowing me in the tummy.

I looked and saw a thin guy who was about 85% cute and 15% scrawny. I didn't recognize him and I thought Amorsolo may have been pointing to someone else. I looked around but no one was there.

I was about to ask him what he meant when I noticed the name tag of the Dairy Queen's cashier guy.

It said "Hi! I'm Migs!"

Migs. Migs. MIGS?!?!

"Oh my God! You're *****'s friend!" I pointed and said to Migs.

Migs smiled awkwardly and continued cashing in our order.

"Do you remember me? You fed us horse meat for pulutan!" I asked him.

Flashback Moment:

ZooWan, Amorsolo and I, drinking some foul drink and trying out tapang kabayo for the first time in the garage of a delapidated apartment where a friend of ours lived, and then drunkenly playing "I Wanna Be A Tutubi".

Back to the Future:

"Do you remember me? You fed us horse meat for pulutan!" I asked him.

"Oo naman," Migs replied, shyly.

"How's Dayanara?" I asked, referring to my friend's ex.

"Ok naman siya," he responded quietly.

And then, I realized why Amorsolo was looking so awkward and tense. Everything came crashing back.

"Ohmygod! You and Amorsolo kissed back then!" I nearly shouted.

Amorsolo, Migs, and Agent were looking at me and the first two were blushing.

I couldn't help myself. It just came out. I couldn't stop my mouth. Pasensya na!!!

Agent was trying to pull me away to prevent further embarrassment for all parties involved. Andulas talaga ng dila ko.

And then I remembered some more...

"You two almost did it! You brought him home to your apartment with Zoowan and me!" I reminisced loudly.

They were laughing but still looking utterly embarrassed.

"I remember everything..." I finished. I remembered it all. That night. Haaay!

Later on, after we left...

"I canNOT believe you!" Amorsolo was flushed at his meeting Migs.

"Did you go all the way with that guy?" I asked.

"Of course not!" Amorsolo was blushing again, "Pero in fairness, mas cute si Migs ngayon ano?"

I nodded, "Definitely cleaner."

Amorsolo was lost in his thoughts...

And I was lost in remembrance of that night....

Enough with the Dramaaaah!!!



Pansin ko lang ha? Nauuso masyado ang drama sa blog ko at sa mga blog ng ibang tao (uy! issue!).

Well, I say enough with the drama! Life is short! Carpe Diem and all that shit.

I decided to make a list of the things that I should be happy about.

1) Finally, finally, finally na-oover na ako kay Sunshine. Sana ma-over na rin yung isa, ahehehe.

2) Malapit na ang Bacolod Trip.

3) I have two new books to read, "Of Smoke and Mirrors" by Neil Gaiman, and "Midnight for Charlie Bone" by Jenny Nimmo.

4) I'm going DVD-shopping with Megario this Saturday.

5) Julienne just gave me her five-page critique of my finally-finished play and to quote her, "it's fresh and funny. Definitely something I would want to read while sitting on the toilet." So, I think that's good. I hope.

6) According to JR, sasama na raw siya sa Bacolod Trip. Sana naman.

7) Nagkaroon ako ng private moment with McNuggets nung isang araw. Haaaay. Super kilig. As in. Kaso sinira ni Amorsolo. Hmpf!

8) Jen just agreed to let me borrow her digicam for the Bacolod Trip. I'm gonna be the fattest cam-whore ever! Kelangan bawat moment may photo-documentation! There will be a lot of firsts in this trip. First time in a plane. First time to eat in a place that can't be reached by ground transportation. First time makatikim ng Ilonggo, ahwekhwekhwek.

9) I just found out na heartbroken na naman yung taong kinamumuhian ko. Hay. Ika nga ni Papa Justin Timberlake, "What goes around, comes around..."

10) Again! Over na ako kay Sunshine! Wahoooo!

Hafee Verdee!!!



Just wanted to take a moment to wish a truly happy birthday to one of the people who's definitely made a significant impact on my life.

Do you remember once I said to you that when we grow old, and we're still single (hopefully not :) ), we should live in the same house and just spend the rest of our lives with our other friends? I hope you do...

Though we're not as close as we were before, though we don't swim in the same circles, though our interests may differ, I hope you know that you are still someone I love and trust.

And I wish that I could be a better friend to you.

Happy birthday Marty! Hope life will always be interesting for you...

Viva Forever...

sunny -17 °C


"Excited na ako sa bakasyon natin," I say, while reading my horoscope on Yahoo.

"Ako man," says Sporty, "Although may halong kaba."

"Kaba?" I curiously ask, "Bakit may ganung issue?"

"Wala lang. Walang issue..." says Sporty, twirling his ID lace, "Alam mo na... si Ginger kasi."

"Hay naku, wag mo na isipin yun. You and Ginger are cool," I wave off his worries, "Besides, you know naman na your opinion is his bible. Sayang nga lang na di kasama si Jiit. Eh di sana masaya lalo ang Ginger. Pauwiin kaya natin siya from Japan?"

Sporty stays quiet.

"Tsaka hindi dapat siya ang isipin mo. Dapat si Posh," I admonish.

"Of course naman! Mahal ko si Posh no," he replies.

"I know you do," I answer back.

I chew on my fingernails, "Hoist, kami ni Scary ang magkatabi sa kama ha! Ayaw ko katabi si Ginger, feeling ko malikot yun."

"Basta siyempre katabi ko si Posh," he says.

"But of course!" I reply, "Wait, isang kuwarto lang ba tayo?"

"May chance," Sporty answers.

"Hala! Patay kayo," I warn him, "Anlakas ko kaya humilik. Para akong tricycle na luma."

Sporty still remains silent.

"Honey, what's wrong ba?" I ask.

He smiles at me. Shakes his head. Then says, "Nothing. I'm sure everything will be great."

Haaay. Nakaka-excite ang mga pangyayari. Isama ko kaya si JR?
