One word.

Goofy.

Allow me to state the obvious: this, folks, is a reeeally blurry picture — of me at headquarters. We’d just run out to what turned out to be an electrical fire. I love my Ranger fireboots! Scraped up the money to buy my own, too. Gear’s tough to find here, or hideously expensive if you get it new. Had no choice, though. The hand-me-down boots I wore previously were two sizes big for me, and boots that don’t fit wear you out. An unnecessarily fatigued firefighter is a firefighter in danger.

Is it just me…

or is anyone else hopelessly sucked into Last Song Syndrome by Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance?”

Maybe it doesn’t help that I have it on single-play-repeat.

Zip it!

I just got home from another live voice-over gig — another open house for Community Innovations Inc.’s Treveia residential development in Laguna. Today’s show played up Treveia’s being part of Nuvali, Ayala Land’s massive project to create a breakthrough in land development here: one that addresses environmental concerns and sustainability issues from the ground up.

As usual:

  • we did the event at Bonifacio High Street
  • there were activities for the kids, a buffet, and entertainment
  • it was windy as all get out

What’s this got to do with this blog post’s title, you say? Well, the entertainment for this show was a performance by “poi” or “zip” dancers — zips are small weights attached to a length of cord or chain, with loops for two fingers, with colorful ribbons streaming from the weights. Also called pois, you use wrist action to twirl the weights around your body, resulting in a visual spectacle similar to the way floor gymnasts use ribbons in their routines. Some performers use fire pois, and the twirling flames are simply breathtaking to see.

Blog, you slacker you! Or, this post is dedicated to sloanie. :D

The Slow-one has very kindly brought it to my attention that I am neglecting my blog again. He’s right, of course. Sorry about that, my miniscule (but most appreciated) bunch of regular readers. 😀

So. Hm. How has life gotten in the way lately? Ah yes. Hang in there. This post is gonna be all over the map. Literally.

Enter the dragon.

I did a live voice-over gig Saturday, for a real estate developer doing an all-day open house at Bonifacio High Street in Bonifacio Global City. This particular client likes to have arts and crafts and other activities for kids running alongside the selling, pretty much so that their parents can talk to the sellers without worrying where their kids are or what they’re doing.

This time around the kids could design their own flip-flops, paint their own canvas tote bags, get their faces painted, and go bouncing around on a bungee trampoline. I went on that, and it was hella fun. 😀

I also got my arm painted with a dragon. There’s better pictures on someone else’s camera, and I’m just waiting for them to get emailed to me. I almost wish I could get it done permanently. My biohazard tat is getting lonely.

Picture after the jump. 😉

The Business Plan That Can’t Lose

Alright, so listen up.

The Philippine 6/49 Lotto jackpot stands at an insane PhP182 Million. By Sunday, it’ll probably be at 200 million pesos, because everyone will be betting, hoping to stop being poor like the other 98% of our population.

Too bad for them, because I’m gonna win.

What’s more, I already have a business plan in the works for my 200 million pesos, that will keep the money growing, and make me… meee… MEEEEEEEE wealthier than my wildest dreams! And that doesn’t include the dreams with WWE Superstar Mick Foley in them! 😀

PLUS, my business plan capitalizes on Filipino culture and its uniquely silly blend of character traits. I can’t lose.

Are you lost? Alone? Miserable?

Then come! Join the Cult of Frunobulax!

Witness! I was unfound, dazed amidst a sea of gunslingers, philosophers, naked women with glittery cleavage, and sheep of questionable pedigree, and I knew not what to do.

Then the Way was opened unto me, and I have found the True Path.

"In the beginning there was only Frunobulax, and in His infinite wisdom He declared "Let there be forums!", and the universe doth shook with the power of his creative force. Where once was nothing there arose the Almighty Kingdom of TheDarkTower.net. In this paradise, true believers could bask in His glory and know the true meaning of existence through the everlasting grace of His Divine Postwhoring."

The Book of Frunobulax, Chapter 1, Verse 1

In tomorrow's sermon, we shall learn of the creation of the Interloper (Walter O'dim) and his banishment to the fiery nether-regions of General Discussion for his fondness for sheep.

A wee bit o’ Shepherd’s Pie.

For a friend who will miss me today, a wee present. Don't hurt yourself, now. 😀

Dolly the Inflatable Sheep

Irrefutable wisdom.

A quote, from the lovely, lovely, lovely HermesGirl at TDT.net

Five tips for a woman….

1. It is important that a man helps you around the house and has a job.

2. It is important that a man makes you laugh.

3. It is important to find a man you can count on and doesn't lie to you.

4. It is important that a man loves you and spoils you.

5. It is important that these four men don't know each other.

Words to live by! 😀

So THAT’S what I was built for.
