have a wicked new year!!!

"May your year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful, and don't forget to make some art - write or draw or build or sing or live as only as you can. And I hope somewhere this year, you surprise yourself!"

do not judge me, i'm not a book

Christmas, they say is best celebrated snug in the bosom of loved ones. Since the missus and all my family and most friends are back home, Christmas this year will pretty much suck. For one, I'll be stuck at work. Which is really my fault because I told them I won't mind. Eh kasi naman, I've been told I can't go home this year since I was off for 5 weeks around this time last year. Besides, I'd rather keep my mind off this Xmas thing by working other than staying at home and moping because I'm having a blue Christmas.

Anyway, since I'll be pretty much on my own this holiday season, my secret Santa thought it would be a wicked idea to give me company. An instant inflatable "perfect" woman, at least that's what the box says.

She fulfills all the exacting criteria of any red blooded male, by having the most important physical attributes, guaranteed to delight every man who ever sees her and ensuring harmony at home.

And she even has Big Tits! Now, there goes the bosom where I can spread the holiday cheer.

He! He! He! Merry Christmas y'all!

charice pempengco

Not all third placers end up empty handed. Sometimes, the loser gets something better than the million peso top prize. In this case, she gets Hollywood. Watch the video of Charice Pempengco, the Filipino teenage singing sensation as she wows Ellen Degeneres with her outstanding rendition of a Jennifer Holliday classic. She even gets a standing ovation from the audience. Twice.

One more reason to be proud of.

Mabuhay ang Lahing Kayumanggi!

mabilis lang 'to. parang si-me-co.

* I have yet to hear a Christmas carol this year. If I were in the Philippines, this wouldn't have been a problem since some radio stations play the first Christmas carol on the 1st of September.

* Have you tried eating beer-battered chips? It's the bomb!

* Go for glory. To the Filipino athletes competing in the 24th Southeast Asian Games in Thailand, goodluck.

* GMA gets Medalla de Oro for defending human rights. They must be having a laugh?!?!

* Teatro Tomasino - the university-wide theatre guild of UST- will be staging "Twosome" at the Albertus Magnus auditorium on December 11 and 12. This twinbill production features Chris Martinez' "Welcome to Intelstar" and Wilfrido Ma. Guerrero's "Wanted: Chaperon" both directed by John Lapus.

* The Manila Ocean Park is already open. Have any of you been there yet? Any good?

* Finally saw Les Miz in West End. Ketty and I queued up three times (the last one at least for 30 minutes in bitter weather) to get tickets. Apparently, that weekend was very busy. The guy at the box office even told us how lucky we were to get tickets as the show was sold out. Unfortunately, the seats weren't together and with restricted view. It was a good show though. The performances were remarkable. Joanna Ampil's portrayal of Fantine was spot on. Her "I dreamed a dream" number was stirring.

* Did you know that we have to pay for a TV license here in the UK? A colour TV Licence costs £135.50 and a black and white licence costs £45.50. And you'd think they'll produce quality shows after that. Not!

* "Jack Bauer" begins his 48-day prison sentence. 48 divided by 2 is 24. Wala lang.

* Don't forget to switch off the lights when not in use.
