trivia @ the toy stores

whenever bambi & i would go to greenbelt 3 or rockwell, one of our required haunts would be landes/hobbes. in addition to being dorks in a toy store, we would always look for at the trivia games, where they would always show the CSI or SATC games. of course, we would always look for the FRIENDS game, but it would always be out of stock....

at the mall this afternoon here at indy, i came upon this store that sold this item:

now, how to hide this from bambs? nuninuninu... :-"

initial indy input...

it's 2:57pm here in indianapolis. yep, that's right, my 2-3 readers! i'm on the other side of the world for my mission to escort my lola and pay a visit to bambs! :P

will update you guys later, gotta go out to the downtown mall! :P

acrimonious acronyms

(yes, joey, this isn't the best way to use "acrimonious" either, but i was running out of alliterative words... :P)

in addition to having a weak support base, the insurgents of the land of bagoong, binalot, and balut also have a problem with their names.

take the New People's Army for example. they're the communist armed wing here, so it's understandable that "people" should be in their name. and i guess china took the good name when they called themselves the People's Liberation Army. but it's been 30++ years since the NPA started out! they could hardly qualify as being "new" when the NPA is on it's 2nd or 3rd generation. they probably assumed they can takeover in 5 years, maybe 10 at most. but no... and i guess a name-change would be the last of their concerns...

and don't even get me started with the splinter group of the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF), the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF)... :P

gma's governmental gridlock & gym gripes

with all the discussions on the stalemate, CPR, coup plots, and general breakdown, i should be saying something to add to the melee in the blogosphere? but what do i need to add? i don't like the president and all the accomodations she's been doing just to perpetuate herself in power, but please oh please, give us a viable alternative! not just another bunch of people who may have idealists in the frontline but will be easily overtaken by the cynical politicians who may be even worse than the short one.


because of these political developments, i'm reduced to doing a pierre bernard sequence from conan's show...

i cut short my gym session today, that same guy said that i wasn't doing the lat exercises properly! please oh please, would you stop with that segue? i know it's going to inevitably go into the sales talk. if someone can show me how to recuperate that P7000 for 10 sessions (P700 per 1 hour session!) to justify the cost, please let me know!

i'm doing a soft cost-benefit analysis on whether i should stay on in RCBC or just work out in robinson's:



  • free towels
  • clean showers
  • free stuff (i only use the cotton buds)
  • newer looking atmosphere
  • more ab machines
  • tidier steam room
  • brighter locker rooms
  • cleaner sinks with free paper towels for the sink


  • pestering gym instructors
  • smaller free weights area
  • less treadmills
  • no iced tea



  • free iced tea
  • bigger free weights area


  • no free towels
  • perennially wet sinks with no towels
  • no free toiletries
  • dingy showers
  • dingy atmosphere

i'm still sticking to rcbc because the gym instructors haven't bugged me that much, but it's been 2 days now that this guy's been bugging me. the towel & shower issues in rcbc, i can overlook that if i reach my gym instructor irritation tipping point, and i do hope it won't be soon.

gym grrrs & eager expedition

don't you just hate it when you go to your local oddessey branch, then the saleslady goes up to you and pester you for stuff to buy? if i need their help, i'll ask for it. not that i don't value what they do or understand that they have to make a sale, but it pisses you off at times.

this is what goes on at the gym. the trainers have to meet a quota, so they come to you and tell you how to do your curls properly!!! this has happened 3x already, and they always think i'm new at the gym! hellow! i've been around since this year started!!! 8- i have my earphones on, with the volume on full! i don't want to be bugged! i don't want to spend P7000 on 10 sessions, when i'm trying hard to balance my finances! and for an incremental body benefit??? and i don't even go out! please leave me be and i'll eventually get my body type when i want to! grrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!


on a hectic note, i'll be strapping on my flight wings! i'll be going back to mayonlandia for a couple of days again for some work, then immediately afterwards, i'll be off to the land of conan, costco, and chevys!!! i'll be spending a little over a week there, thus enjoying the long todos los santos vacation away, in a land i haven't been to in 5 years! finally, i can get my passport marked again! :P

yun nga lang, the main reason i have to go is to accompany my lola to visit my tita who's undergoing a procedure (i know i'm not much of a catholic, but she needs all our prayers!). then i'm off to the west coast to visit my mom's relatives and bambi!!! :D:D:D

watch out for lee & bambi bloopers in the land of conan, costco, and chevys!!! :D:D:D

blendered blog blows

it has been quite a while since i posted anything, even quite a longer time since i posted anything of a personal nature (not blog quizzes or surveys). work just gets in the way, plus cable, dvd-watching, etc. (although i must say i'm not as languid as pasigraver, who i think hasn't updated his blog in 5 months, but that's probably due to his job... peace pasigraver!) to my 2-3 readers, here's my update.

due to the changing nature of work, i've been assigned to the "mayon" province. i won't bore you with the details of the work; suffice to say that i'm experiencing my worst asthma indications in years due to the weather (molds in the billeting area would do that). heck, even a quasi-workout at the gym (which i missed for the last couple of days) didn't even make me cough & sneeze up a storm. sadly (for some), i'm a cosmopolitan (not the zine); totally used to the trappings of city life. don't get me wrong, i can stay on longer if it needs to, but that's the clincher: if it needs to.

political updates, hmm, what else is new? the empress is really going out of her way to maintain her survival. whether it be EO 464, bro. eddie's cases, or what not, she's firm in bending heaven and eggs, este heaven and earth to forward her political agenda. sadly, it's the same thing i said months ago, but secretly hoping that my inner (and outer) cynic would be proven wrong, for this republic of bagoong, binalot, and basketbol's sake. unfortunately, i'm still wrong. so what else is new?

hmm, i recently discovered this pldt promo for P5 per minute for IDD calls (plug2x!), it has been a cost-saver whenever i'd call bambi. just can't wait to see her again....

we saw danilo barrios in glorietta 4 last night, he was wearing these large pair of what bambi would call "bubuyog (bee)" shades at 7pm. i guess he was using that to hide his trademark eyebrows. i mean, his eyebrows make peter gallagher's eyebrows look like pencil marks! (the pintasero augustinian in me strikes again!)

oh well, this post should be enough. wake me up when i need to make a post that would wake me from my stupor...

guy or girl?

You Are 50% Boyish and 50% Girlish

You are pretty evenly split down the middle - a total eunuch.
Okay, kidding about the eunuch part. But you do get along with both sexes.
You reject traditional gender roles. However, you don't actively fight them.
You're just you. You don't try to be what people expect you to be.
so i'm not that gay, but i'm not exactly macho either... a ross or a chandler? definitely no joey... he3x! :P
