Lunar Punk Zappa

Tapos, magpapa-tattoo ako
Dapat yung nakakatakot
Ah 龙 pare
Tapos, yung 龙
Nakatusok sa stick
Tapos, yung stick
Nakatusok sa ulo ni Charles Manson, Jr.
Cool yun ‘di ba?

Alternate Reality

Major League Baseball destroys the clothing that was made for its runners-up. The NBA donates it to an overseas charity. The NFL sends it to a place far away.

Apparently, the UAAP sends it to Subic.

Homecoming Saturday

Sometimes, when we both have time, the wife and I drive to Kyusi to eat at some of the best and most famous eateries in Katipunan and Diliman. You see, these areas are not only known for the best institutions of higher learning in the country, they also have the best inihaw na liempo, pork chop, pork barbeque, tapsiliog, fishballs and squidballs anywhere. (Hey, it must be the water!)

For some time now, I was planning on bringing the wife to another one of the best eateries in Diliman. But, for one reason or another, it never pushed through. I just remembered that I wanted to bring her there, when another lawyer and I made a short stopover at Old Balara after coming from one of the many government offices in QC.

So after spending two consecutive Saturdays at work, and as a consequence, missing an Ateneo-La Salle game for the first time since 2007, Saturday can't come soon enough. Either before or after the game on Saturday, we will have Mang Jimmy's Tapa Mix and bottomless rice. Sounds like a plan.

Song of the Year

Pagdating sa Naga
Dun tayo mag-beach

- Express Highway, Bloomfields

Nice song, Bloomfields.

Except, of course, for the fact that Naga is landlocked.

"Sleep, my sons, your duty done, for freedom's light has come."

"Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you."

The above passage is from the Gospel according to Matthew. It was the Gospel for 17 March 2011 ─ the same day the results of the 2010 Bar Examinations came out. I think it was at that point of the Mass when I was finally able to relax, after being a nervous wreck since the day the Supreme Court announced to the public that the results are finally coming out. The premature greetings on Facebook, while sincerely appreciated for the posters' confidence in us, certainly did nothing to help.

All the eight people from my block who took the exams last September passed. After five long years of shared pain and agony, I honestly believe that we were all rooting for each other from the time we finished law school until the day we saw our names published at the SC website. I cannot remember being with a group of people who are as genuinely happy and proud for one another as we all were that day. We share this happiness and pride with our other blockmates who will take the country's first MCQ Bar Exams this November, and who we trust will feel as delirious some time next year as we did last Thursday.
