Posts Tagged ‘joan’

It was one of the boring nights we had in my then boarding house when Joan and I decided to go out and grab some beer to spend the whole night. We headed to datcom, UP Mindanao’s finest tambayan for the drunkards. Not a lot of Iskos and Iskas were there so we had real good time chugging rhum tea and a bucket of beer and sipping sticks of cigarettes. But unlike other drinkers who talk too much while taking a gulp, the laptop and the online thing we’re doing stopped us from talking to each other. And so there was ofpuffsandshots.wordpress.com — a product of drunkness on a boring night.

This is joan. And this is how we look like when we're drunk. 🙂

Anyway, I want to be very retrospective in this post. I never thought of writing for an anniversary blogpost (after 75 entries for the past year), I tell you, so there will be much looking back and thanking important people that’s gonna happen in this post.

I am more than cognizant of the fact that this blog has been one of the witnesses to my life’s struggles and happiness. It has helped me become a good storyteller, an emotional lover, and a sentimental friend. I am listing down the relatively significant posts which will validate that indeed, this blog has become the real sponge of my emotions.

1. A Lover. breaking rules – 8 months and counting

2. Heartbroken. a lame excuse – the final countdown

3. Letting go. Blanking Over

4. Raged.
*The new talk of the town
*brain-tuning

5. Academic struggles. thesis it!

6. A ‘tripper.’
*babalik ako
*Till next time, Cebu!

7. A lover, again and again. twinkletoes.

8. A concerned citizen.
* i pray
* alert! alert!

9. A sentimental friend. at dahil pumasa ka ng AH5.

10. Kinky and naughty. SEMI-VIRGIN?

11. A happy kid. ADIEU 2009!

Of course, I cannot only recall the memorable posts I had without thanking the people who constantly visit my blog. Special thanks to Rea Gene, for being the top commenter. You inspired me to make a blog, in the first place. To Suckingbird and Jepoy, for always updating, for always asking the meat of the issues. To Anne Shane (Ansiyen) and Kathy Mar, for keeping an eye in this site. To the Barkadahang Tunay people, for surprising me with your knowledge about my posts. Anj, Jo, Gold, Elton, Ste, Krisha and Colin, thanks. To Ram, for thinking that this is a soft-porn site, thank you.To Bryan, the hardcore drinker, thanks for reading my posts. I will always salute your drinking prowess! To my two living idols in the blogging world, thank you for being an, ehem, inspiration, Bookie and Mandaya!

To my UPMindanao passers-by (and readers), George, Maan, Fritz, Teena, Ate Ling, Ate Malou, etcetera, thank you. To my high school classmates who tried to visit this site, thank you jampong! To the rest of the bloggers, special mention to Mark and PetiBurges , who spent a second to visit, skim, and drop a comment, I appreciate it, bigtime! To my anonymous readers who has kept my blogstats flying, thank you very much.

To the readers of my other blog who visited this site also, oha, marunong din akong mag-ingles. Kala nyo lang hindi. haha. Salamat pa rin sa inyo. 🙂

And to you, twinkletoes, I know you still read my blogs. If not, at least thank you for being my favorite subject in my blogposts. Thank you, mife! 😉

From the BOTTOM of my everything, THANK YOU!

Cheers to a wonderful blogging year! More years in the blogosphere with the pseudoblogger. Bottom’s up tayo jan! Balik-balik! 😉

atypical bus-ride

Hours from now, I will be again miles away from home. More than two months of bumming is finally over. No more unlimited sleep, unlimited foods, unlimited internet, unlimited time to daydream, unlimited pool, unlimited boredom.

Summer has always been one of the best times of the year. Last year was a good one. This year is even better.

Not a lot of extraordinary things happened though but the very simple things i did almost defined the person that i am now. Here are some of those:

guilt

1. Friends’ graduation. My best friends and other closest friends were all over college. I’m not and it’s ok.

2. Battling with my sick life. Getting over you-who-must-not-be-named was tough. Really. Finally (with emphasis), I am over you and we both have our separate lives to live. Yiiihah!

3. Parties and lesser bisyo. You read it right — lesser yosi, lesser beer, lesser night parties (?), no drugs. Resumes by the day I see Joan.

4. Thesis data gathering. Realizing my thesis is not as easy as how I thought about it during the proposal. Fuck.

5. Being hired.  Responsibility. That’s it.

6. Rai going somewhere for ‘good.’ Wait for me there, dami pang plano.

———————————-

Anyway, it’s a different bus-ride tomorrow. No more Rea. T_T

But a lot excited for the new boarding house and the new roommate.

More parteys. More reasons to smile.

God bless my “hopefully last” semester. *cheers*

Like any boring Sunday afternoon where Joan and Beans are as bored as the fish inside the aquarium (ay na..), we both decided to hang out at El Roi’s — boarding house near ours. Joan, that time just finished watching Love of Siam — giving me a hard time explaining into details some scenes in the movie.

The plan: to drink coke sakto and to have some puff while both of us were still not in the mood to take a bath. The boardinghouse also caters some foods for lunch and the like.

Super bored, we were just staring at whatever we see within our sight when suddenly, Joan interrupted our moment with the surrounding

“Panlalaki lagi kaayo ilang mga sud-an diri no?”

I laughed at what she said. She was serious, mind you! And Joan will always be serious with those kinds of questions.

“So naa nay gender ang sud-an karon Jo?”

I was still laughing when I asked that. And I asked her why she thought that way.

She seriously added… “tan-awa ra gud o, calderetang kanding, papaitan, balbacua…”

Bravo! Bravo!

Yes, those were for pulutan, ayt?

And I wouldn’t have to agree or disagree with her. After all, this is all about the birth of the FOODS’ GENDER. Thanks to my friend!

*So what foods are for girls, gays, and lesbians?*

joan and beans are starving!
