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. 😉

As you wish.

This disjointed, rambling post is a confusing mess of emotional vomit that only one person might understand.

The iPod Magnet strikes again!

Okay. This is getting ridiculous.

I am now the proud owner of an iPod Touch, courtesy of Pepsi. 😮

So. Tired.

Spent the day grubbing around in the Museum’s satellite office and warehouse. We got rid of old furniture that was just taking up space, and cleaned the office side of the facility from top to bottom. That was the easy part.

We’ll meet again…

Don’t know where
Don’t know when
But I know we’ll meet again some sunny day
Keep smiling through,
Just like you always do
Till the blue skies drive the dark clouds far away

Same time, next year.

They came, they saw, they left. Half an hour, with a thousand unanswered questions left over. I hate short tours. I hope next year there’ll be more time. 😦

The 2008 Valor Tours group, whose ETA was 2:00-2:30 p.m., arrived at the University at ten minutes to three. By the time we got everyone up the grand stairs to the Museum Gallery, it was 3:10. They had to leave at 3:30 to make it to Bilibid Prison (used during WWII as a military POW camp), and then straight to the airport.

I’ve never had to talk faster.

‘Scuse me while I fire up the DeLorean.

The past couple of days have been hectic (wait, when are they not?) — I’ve been struggling with the flu, and all week I’ve been waiting for approval to open the Santo Tomas Museum for a Saturday viewing for a very special group of guests.

You know you’re a geek when…

… you’re about to head off for three days to an island resort and your main concern is that you’ll be offline.

Closure.

One question. One answer.

“Did he ever really love me?”

“If he never did, and was simply having fun messing with my head, it’s okay to say so. It’s just hard to live not knowing.”

It’s all coming back to me now. Via Meat Loaf, not Celine Dion.

Whoa. Talk about being blindsided.

I’d wondered whether it was a good idea to write that blog entry about Amtrak_To_Hell, and then yesterday I heard from his best friend, D — the person who introduced me to him. D needed help with something, and then mentioned that he’d read my blog, and told me to try to be at peace with myself. Which got me thinking. Am I?

Evil kitteh. Shmexy.

Shmexylicious evil kitteh is shmexy.

A one way ticket on the Amtrak To Hell.

To say that I had second thoughts about writing this post is very likely the understatement of a lifetime. However, it’s been a couple of days, and a post I read by Roissy In DC refuses to leave my mind. In it, he says, among other things:

“The quintessential masculine quality women can’t resist is SUPREME UNSHAKEABLE CONFIDENCE.”

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.

Disposable art

At the museum I work for, we had an exhibition of traditional Filipino arts and crafts. One of the crafts featured is called “pabalat.” The word “balat” refers more strictly to skin, while the word “balot” is used more often for any kind of wrapping material, but this craft is traditionally called “pabalat” (pah-bah-LAHT). It involves folding thin Japanese tissue paper, tracing a pattern onto the folded paper, and then cutting it out, leaving an intricate, lacy filigree.
