One day till payday and Chuck Norris

I haven't looked forward to payday as much I do today. That's what happens when there's only an un-withdrawable 80 pesos left in my ATM and a measly 200 in my wallet. And that's all I have left for food (food, glorious food!) and transportation until tomorrow. The situation has become so dramatially dire that while eating lunch this noon, I seriously considered walking all the way home. I am that destitute.

And when tomorrow does come, the ATM downstairs is probably going to go bonkers again, which means that I have to pay an extra 11 pesos to withdraw from another ATM. UCPB sucks.

Damn you, agent of the Matrix!

I can't even think straight. I have 5 (or more) articles I have to write from scratch, but everytime I try to write, instead of coherent sentences, something more akin to mush comes out--thank goodness the deadline's still a few days away.

Ah, I totally suck. @_@

Only Chuck Norris rules (see below). LOL.

Random shot of the day:


In lieu of my very erratic posting, I've decided to keep this blog (and the connecting one in Multiply as well) alive by posting a shot from my library from time to time. I might also post a short vignette inspired the photo as long as I have the inspiration and the brain power for it.

New Year, new post. LOL.

I suddenly feel compelled all of a sudden to post something in lieu of the New Year--which basically only really means a change of date--and I do realize that it's been AGES since I last put something here.

But what a year 2008 was. It was easily one of the most trying for me emotionally--which I will not expound on; the people who know me know what I'm talking about. But I am still thankful for small joys like good chatting days (and there were lots of bad ones too), Hairspray, airsoft, and eat outs with friends.

Basically I start the year feeling like one of those 9 out of 10 Filipinos they've recently put on the news--hopeful. I hope that this year will be a year of better things, of small and big successes.

Right now, I'm starting to dread Monday--and I'm sure many others feel the same--so I'm trying to maximize what's left of my RPG-playing days before I go back to all that work again.

From Slumdog to Millionaire

Slumdog Millionaire has been getting a lot of hype lately, and I, for one, think it deserves it.

Set in the slums of Mumbai, Slumdog Millionaire is, simply, a rags-to-riches story of a boy who went from the shit-diving fanboy (watch the movie and you'll understand) to the 20 million-Rupee winner of the local version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire - and gets the girl of his dreams in the process. And to make it truly Bollywood-grade (it's a British film, BTW), there's a dance scene at the end.

While some may say that the story is something we've all seen before countless times over and over again (yes, the premise is THAT overused), that's entirely beside the point. No idea is new, they say, the key lies in the way something is presented, which makes Slumdog Millionaire stand out from all the rest. The cinematography for one, is great, and for a movie that reminded me so much of the slums of our own Payatas, of the congestion of this sprawling metropolis we call Met…
