Reality Check

the past week has been great! i had my first company orientation after being employed for seven frigging months. what a great thing to be welcomed to a huge company after for so long. i was acquainted with things i already know. the company has a great human resource department. this is without sarcasm. yes, and the great things is that, the HRD chicks are hot.

and also, last weekend, i had a ravishing argument with my mother. i am now disowned by my family. it was just because i was a lazy ass. well, it is hard to do manual labor when you can’t move your legs. last, last week, my vertebrae snapped. it was also because of so much manual labor. so much with that. mom’s flying off somewhere next month, anyway. so, i hope the fight would make her miss her so lazy ass son more.

after a being in a time space warp (Ida, you sick disco head transvestite!), i was then catapulted back into reality, into the world where global warming awareness is in vogue, to a country that has been belittled by the international community for wrapping up its fraud-plagued elections by manual counting and have been awakened to the truth that i am a little bit richer (hooray for mid-year bonuses!).

realizations have begun dropping in. i am now a bastard for my family hates me. i am a paraplegic and am looking forward to a life without hot animal sex. and that because i am employed to a ultra-rich company, i have a very rosy future because i have an extra month’s pay to spend. yes, my life is so happy.

with that, many things have also happened. here are my thoughts.

~ another one bites the dust.

credibility weighs much on the shoulders of journalists and broadcasters. how will the masses believe a journalist or broadcaster you has been known to get so much moolah just by plugging a detergent brand or by allowing his or her face to be posted on a grand billboard, holding some bitter concoction somewhere on EDSA. As far as my journalism memory can remember, endorsing products is a big no-no for media practitioners, especially to those who have much credibility to stand for.

but for the past few weeks, Vicky Morales, a famous newscaster known for her good looks and quick mind, has been plugging a hair loss control shampoo. ah, she has joined the band wagon of broadcasters who are endorsing products. good thing, she’s not into ABS bitter herbs. so much for journalism ethics.

~ newsflash! may bagong himala naman para kay Nora!

yes, Nora Aunor has been married to her butch business manager. details here.

truly, love moves in mysterious ways. especially for a person who’s been on the top of the world, is now down in creation and is looking forward to a life of bankruptcy and addiction. good luck to you.

~ these icons need more than a eulogy, a 21-gun salute or even a monument. they need sainthood.

pop culture icon Yoyoy Villame and radio legend Kuya Cesar have ceased to walk the earth. Both have died because of heart attacks and both were aged 69.

they will be forever remembered by the Filipino children that they have helped shape into the people that they are now, either by regulary exercising or by being a little bit faster in everything they do.

~ baby James Aquino-Yap has been christened. i hope he forgives his mother for being such a media whore. she has been sharing to the whole country the superficial hardships she has experienced. i’ve heard women who have bared greater suffering. there are mothers who have given birth without the help of experts and specialists. there are women who face caring for their children without money.

i believe that it is about time that Kris Aquino should just shut up and be a real mother and not a snotty brat.

i am so sorry for her little son. he’ll be exploited at a very young age. rumors say that he already has a commercial. poor kid. i also pray that he won’t end up like his older brother who is now a poor overweight retarded kid. god bless Kris Aquino’s kids.

~ here’s something for our Pambansang Kamao, Manny Pacquiao. I thank God that he lost.

this is from the Manila Times, dated May 21, 2007 at the Opinion section, the Open Notebook

column by Random Jottings.

Manny Pacquiao – boxing champ to political chump

it’s such a pity that no one was able to get it into boxing champion Manny Pacquiao’s stubborn head that when he decided to step into the political ring he was going to have to punch way above his weight.

for waiting for him at the other corner was (despite her slim frame) a political heavyweight with ammunition primed and ready to deliver a knockout blow to the Pacman’s foolhardy political aspirations.

at least incumbent Rep Darlene Antonino-Custodio’s pulverizing of Pacquiao has provided the boxing champ the opportunity to give himself the one thing that he has badly needed in the past few months while riding on a wave of popular adulation – a reality check.

and as he maps out his fast approaching future career outside boxing, he can treat May 14, 2007, as the first day of the rest of his life and cosole himself that politics is certainly not an option.

what was so stunning about Pacquiao’s spectacular meltdown was its nationwide effect. not a single politician in any part of the country who panted for the Pacman endorsement managed to come through a winner.

in Metro Manila, for example, Pacquiao – blatantly breaking the fundamental law that prevents a candidate running in one district from being invovled in the political process in another – open campaigned for the mayoralty runs of Lito Lapid and Ali Atienza in Makati City and Manila City, respectively. with the Commission on Elections seemingly turning a blind eye to the illegality of it all since, after all, this was the great Manny Pacquiao.

but no matter. both Lapid and Atienza suffered ignominious defeats at the hands of seasoned opponents, and they can put it down to the curse of Pacquiao!

so let’s hear it for the people of the first district of South Cotabato who have heroically displayed the sort of political maturity that many of us thought had loong been bastardized by the razzmatazz of showbiz riff-raff and sporting has-beens and lost ofrever.

here’s hoping this form of born-again politics spreads like a nationwide epidemic come the next political exercise in 2010.

meanwhile, May 2007 will forever be remembered for that epic moment when a fragile woman, cheered on by the people of South Cotabato (and much of the ntion, for that matter) delivered in the pilitical arena to a Filipino boxing idol the one thing he never suffered in the boxing rin-a humiliating knock-out!

my thoughts exactly. however, Pacquiao has already experienced a humiliating knock-out before. it was in Thailand that Pacquiao had a life-changing awakening when 3K Battery floored him. there, he suffered his second loss.

well, there it is. back to work.
