Engineers will remain as Engineers

Boys will be boys. Engineers will remain as one. And green jokes will never be colored red or blue I suppose. During the LPEP before I formally entered college which was defined as the first day of June, we were literally outnumbered (35:5 male-to-female ratio). We played a game where we would shout out loud our chosen body part of a cow everytime our block section is called. It was a totally radical experience for me for I graduated from a coed high school where green jokes seemed to be color yellow. Then, there came a time when I was the only girl in class (excluding the professor). That was only true for our Integral Calculus class. Our professor, being of the conservative of all the conservatives, bad words and other words that would trigger the beep sound in TV and or media as a whole were not allowed. And because she’s Chinese, even my classmates that can converse in Chinese were not allowed to say the Chinese translation of the beep-triggering words.

Then, there came the double-meaning words that would be sensed quickly by the true green minds. Of course, there will be always the class Pong Pagong where he/she would just laugh without knowing why it is funny (Erm… Ignorance is bliss?) or the laughing hyena chemical reaction would take place after five minutes or so. On the contrary, I am not ashame to admit that I am one of those who have a la Flash reflexes when it comes to green funny bones. And being exposed to this in the College of Engineering has made me well adaptive in communicating with different kinds of people.

Not only that, whether green or not, jokes are just one of the ways of destressing yourself. Let me give you an analogy, Toilet duck is your blank milliliters of green jokes, the flush is your laughter and your stress is the poop. And if the joke was that bad, please don’t forget to spray lemon-flavored Lysol.

7th Cinemanila International Film Festival Extended

I was not able to catch a single film from the Cinemanila International Festival. I thought I was doomed. Then, I got an e-mail from my High School friend via our batch e-groups. The movie buff in me immediately resurrected from the dead. The question of which film to watch remains unanswered. I still have yet to read some reviews and synopsis of the film. Read more for the schedule for tomorrow up to November 8. Continue reading “7th Cinemanila International Film Festival Extended”

Microsoft Live and Microsoft Gadgets

Microsoft has just announce Microsoft Live. And now, here comes Microsoft Gadgets. Gadgets are a new category of mini-application designed to provide information, useful lookup, or enhance an application or service on your Windows PC or the Web. You can read more info on gadgets here. They also have contest where the main objective is to create a Gadget. They started accepting entries last November 1, 2005 and they will be accepting until December 31, 2005. Currently, there are eight entries found in their gallery. I’ve seen a nifty gadget there, and it’s the Virtual Earth – Bus Tracker. This gadget will be a handy tool for travelers. It will be much better if it will contain other data aside from Seattle’s.

INXS Back on Track

JD FortuneThis afternoon, when me and my brother were inside the car, we were able to listen to the new INXS on JAM 88.3. It was JD Fortune on vocals, singing the lyrics that he wrote because he didn’t like the way Marty and the rest was doing since the group was already in a panic mode in the hope of having to come up with something. And he sure did show off the song he wrote and did not care if they’ll get the prize to spend the weekend with INXS. What he cared about is that, “I’ll write a better song and boy it will really be a better one.” Yeah it should be a better one thinking that what JD did is a minus factor for him when it comes to attitude in collaborating with a group. Even though that what he did was a minus factor for him, his agressiveness landed him a career in the music industry.

Hong Kong Disneyland Dreaming

Lance and Mickey MouseLike my nephews, I’ve been an ultimate Disney fan and was dreaming to be in Disneyland. I set foot on Disneyland in Los Angeles, California when I was fourteen years old with my Dad. It was spring then and I was like a little kid trapped in an adolescent’s body amazed by the mascots who walked in front of me and the huge structures that stood there. It was like a dream come true seeing Mickey Mouse even though I know that what’s inside is a person working for his necessities. When it was announced that Hong Kong Disneyland will soon be opening, we’ve expressed our interests in going there. Even my nephews have the same thing in mind. I’d love to go there and I know that my nephews will surely enjoy it. My nephews should prepare for the ultimate walkathon of their lives. I can just imagine how would Lance say,

Karga, Karga…

It will be totally impossible for him to say those words to their Dad since we just went malling for a few hours and he was saying that his feet hurts and he wants to be carried.

If Lance will be carried, Justin would also want to be carried. He’ll say these words,

Karga, Karga

Oh my! Good luck to me. If Lance is already heavy, then Justin is heavier.

Bobble Head Gang

Bobble Head Gang

Because my nephews love window toy shopping, I went with them inside a toy store located right after Royal Sporting Goods in Glorietta. I came across this wonderful Bobble heads of Joker, Superman, Batman and Robin. I was drooling over how the details of these bobble heads were made. But that was not my priority since I’ve already spent two shirts for my nephews as my gift for their upcoming birthday. Maybe I’d go there and get one for myself sometime.

Twisted by Jessica Zafra

I’ve been an avid reader of Jessica Zafra’s works. My collection ranges from Twisted 1 to Twisted 7. Let me also include Womenagerie. The other one is a compilation of sorts entitled as Fast Food Fiction where one of compiled stories is of Jessica Zafra’s. I do not have a copy of Twisted Flicks yet and the Chicken Pox for the Soul. But I will get one. And for those who have been reading Miss Zafra’s Twisted, let me bring to you a wonderful discovery via Carlos the Streetwalker (got through his blog via a Flickr community), click here. She’ll dominate the world that’s for sure.
