height of commercialism

There is no action figure more deserving of a deluxe edition than the Son of God. This 5-1/4″ tall, hard vinyl figure comes with eight amazing plastic accessories: five loaves of bread, two fish and a jug for turning water into wine (not guaranteed to work for real). Also features “glow-in-the-dark miracle hands”!jesus


*what cracked me up was the ‘not guaranteed to work for real’ part. but i guess you got to have a keen sense of the absurd to appreciate this. hah, life is so much interesting with stuff like this.

I was about to give my body some well deserved snooze when I decided to check my email. I shouldn’t have. I should’ve lay down my bed and basked into a deep satisfying slumber. But I didn’t. now I am typing like a maniac, fuming mad. It’s all because of this controversy-hungry, infantile dimwit.

THIS time Justice Secretary Raul Gonzalez has picked
on the University of the Philippines school system,
saying it mainly produces militant protesters and
fraternity men and women who run around the campus

“That school breeds the destabilizers that haunt the
country year after year. They are acting as if they
are the only ones who know how to run the country,”
Gonzalez told the Inquirer yesterday.

He said this was not the way the students should repay
the government for giving them a world-class

“They should consider the fact that the state is the
one paying for their schooling. Why fight the state?
Why try to bring it down. I think some degree of
gratitude should be there also,” he said.

He noted that UP had always been known as a “cradle of
leadership” but he was worried that with the way some
students there were acting, some serious questions
would be raised about the “kind of leaders we will
have in the future.”

i’m not a hardcore activist. i can’t claim that i have a stand on every issue of national consequence. i don’t go to rallies and scream my lungs out to make my point come across. Hell, it may have been weeks since I last read a newspaper. But when an obtuse old man disparages my most venerated institution then he should get the most expletive expletives i could ever utter.

seems like old man here haven’t heard of the latent purpose of activism. well, i am not surprised, he didn’t graduate from UP afterall. Another thing, we are not a bunch of exhibitionists. The oblation run is a highly thought of tradition which traces its roots from the dissent of the Marcos regime. But of course, there is no way you would understand.

If this guy is in sound mental condition, he would think twice before bashing the most opinionated studentry in the country. now you’re in deep shit man, real deep shit. well, you asked for it.


lull time

Filed under: Blogroll, raves — rave86 @ 4:20 pm

i can finally get some decent sleep, woothoo! all my exams are finished (except for a minor and easy one on tuesday) and my sanity is still intact, well, barely. my economics exam went well and without a glitch- i had the highest score in our class and among the top ten in the batch, ahem, ahem. the dreaded stat quality control exam was a different matter however. let’s just say that everyone i saw leaving the examination room was either scratching his head or exclaiming never-heard of expletives. i was doing both.

but enough of that already. now my topmost priority is how to expunge all traces of caffeine i ingested- i drank enough coffee to last me a year. three days without any shut-eye and i still can write this entry. so don’t blame me if i am not making any sense because i’m not supposed to.

mental note, i have to thank my parents for their wonderful genes. i do look like a raccoon but at least i don’t have any pouch under my eyes. black undereyes are so much better than baggy ones. one drawback though, i can’t wear black unless i want people to suspect i’m a drug addict. or a reaper-wielding maniac.

enough blabbing. gonna get some sleep now. lull time.

sweet neuroses

Filed under: Blogroll, recycled — rave86 @ 2:07 pm

I sit idly in my last class, seemingly listening to my professor but my mind is adrift. I look at the white board half expecting ballerinas coming out of it. I look at my professor but I see beyond her. I see the man of my dreams slowly walking towards me. He stares at me with longing eyes while talks about environmental science float around. Alas, my man envelops me with his arms and I smell musk and a field of pines.
We embraced and held each other for what seemed like eternity. Our heads eased and our hungry lips locked. He started to make love to me with my classmates as our witnesses. We made love with the sound of wines flowing. I was transported to a place where the sky is red and roses abloom everywhere. My professor’s voice was muffled by whimpers and moans of pleasure. I seduced and teased, my naked body played expertly with his. He groaned with so much passion, never breaking the stare with his intense black eyes. Our bodies danced rhythmically, sensation afloat like magical harps playing in the air.

** i wrote this blab in my environmental science class. i still can’t remember why i enlisted in the subject. on the other hand, you couldn’t possibly know enough about plate tectonics, glaciers and climate this age. truly fascinating.. jesus, i might as well slit my wrists to keep myself awake.

chinese bananas

Filed under: Blogroll, raves, recycled — rave86 @ 2:13 pm

i was seating idly in the library, waiting for the snooty librarian to release my book when i decided to open the book left by this guy who was seating next to me. it turned out to be the Guinness Book of Records for 2002. i know, it’s weird that our library has this kind of book when it is supposedly an engineering library. well, i didn’t mind, especially when i came across this entry.

Turns out, it was made by this Chinese jeweller (these people, they are unfuckingbelievable!) in Hong Kong out of 24-carat gold and precious jewels. it costs around $3.5 M to make and you have to shell out $200 to use it. Now, why would some person shell out that much money to poo?

These people and their fucking ideas, they make me look lame.. i wonder though if crapping feels the same. lemme look at my savings account. Hmm..

** i snatched this one fom my old blog. i shouldn’t even be surfing the net because of all my exams but all work and no play can make me a dull girl, right? (i’m such a sloth, i know!) besides, i find it hard to write lately, maybe because of all the numbers and equations that i look at these past few days. you wouldn’t wanna read a blog about statistical quality control, would you? so here, just bear with my recycled blogs. interesting days are coming my friend. just wait til i see my exam results, i’ll really start raving then.

The Rule of Diminishing Students

Filed under: Blogroll, raves — rave86 @ 1:31 pm

Economics class: I’m a few minutes late but everything is peachy because I had a doughnut for breakfast. It doesn’t matter if it is raining and the sky is a gloomy gray. Even the fact that I cannot catch up with the lesson couldn’t change my mood. It is a large class, around 300 students, if I can remember correctly. The first day of lecture, they had to bring in additional chairs to accommodate the students. It was like the premiere of a big movie. I didn’t expect economics to be such a popular subject among students. Or maybe, like in my case, economics is a very popular subject among administrative people that they require a hell lot of students to take it. Of course, I wouldn’t argue with its significance but it’s not exactly the most entertaining subject in the world either. Now that it’s halfway along the semester, the auditorium is only half full. I refer to this phenomenon as the ‘law of diminishing students’ (I feel so scholarly, all of a sudden). It means that there is only so much economics class you can attend before going into a stupor. The number of students attending the class is inversely proportional to the number of meetings that has passed. It is especially rampant in subjects that require excessive will power to stay awake. Other subjects include accounting, statistics, environmental science, etc.

“The per capita percentage of the Philippines is 0.2…”, says my professor. Wow, we are really screwed up. So that’s why doughnuts cost so much.

In a totally unrelated topic, midterms is already knocking on my door. Three major exams are coming up next week. I should force myself into studying early otherwise I would surely spend several nights (and days!) ingesting countless cups of coffee and trying to pile up all the lessons in my emaciated mind. Pasty skin, breakouts, dark under eyes, and weight loss – things don’t look well. If I lose any more weight, I might scare kids off. They might see me as a reaper-wielding maniac or I might cause my mother a heart attack- both instances don’t look appealing. So resolution for the day- study early! (Yeah, right.)

“It’s the awesome power of mathematics…” Sure thing sir! I couldn’t agree more. Blecch.

**i got this tattoo from our school fair a year ago. and don’t worry, it’s just henna. my friend actually did it for me. it doesn’t resemble anything but i thought it was cool. now, what does it have to do with what i said above? beats me.

longganisa and sausages

Filed under: Blogroll, raves — rave86 @ 1:03 pm

where i live- a dormitory in UP Diliman CampusI smell longganisa. Those hideous sausage-like, garlic filled entities. Their aroma is so potent that its smell can feel the room with a single burp. I suspect a fucking classmate had longganisa for lunch. Fucking person with no consideration. He keeps on contaminating the air with putrid and garlicky smell of fucking longganisa. Brush your teeth buddy, drink mouthwash or fucking aerosol. Or just haul your ass out of the room.

On other news, there’s this rather hefty girl who is wearing super-low jeans and extremely short shirt. The effect is like a pound of blubber trying to break free from her constricting jeans. To further add agony, her underwear sticks out. Girlfriend, spare us from the dreadful experience of watching your guts bursting. Wear something more roomy next time. Or maybe jog a little once in a while and don’t eat like a pig. The world is an ugly place enough even without the sight of your ass doing a peek-a –boo.

Still an hour to go, god help me.

vikings, gays and lesbos

Filed under: raves — rave86 @ 12:35 pm

I could fall into a coma any minute. The lesson is fucking boring. The teacher talks in a monotonous voice and half the time she seems like she doesn’t have a clue on what she is talking about. To make things worse, the lesson is about freaking glaciers. What kind of person in his right state of mind would care about ice? To be of any consolation at least I’ll be studying this crap for only a semester. Imagine studying glaciers and soil and whatever all your life. So I guess I cannot blame the teacher for being so boring after all. If I were her, I might as well kill myself with a blunt knife. There is no way I could stand talking about weather and climate change all my life.

In other news, I’m seated with this horrendous classmate every meeting. She keeps on seating on the chair to my left. Is it really that much of a burden to brush your teeth nowadays? I mean, is it really that hard to scrape all those food particles off your teeth once in a while? I can smell her foul breath in a mile. Girlfriend, do yourself a favor, at least pop a gum or candy before you get poisoned from your own toxic spit. Talk about a foul-mouthed bitch, literally.

Going back to the lesson, the teacher is now talking about the ice age and the Vikings. Fucking hell, why would I even care about that stuff?

The girl in front of me rubs her hands together as if that would make her any warmer. Boy, when people start acting, they really take it seriously. She has been whining about being cold since the class started. As if her hooded jacket is not enough to keep her warm. On second thought, if you are seated beside a lesbian who is obviously into you, maybe you would feel cold. But how would I know right? Foul-mouthed bitch is straight as far as I could tell. So the girl in front of me is seated between a lesbian to her left and a gay guy to her right. The gay guy starts to rub his hands as well. Jesus, some days, people can be very odd. Well maybe, if he wasn’t wearing white rayon pants he wouldn’t feel too cold. But I would never know, I wouldn’t get caught wearing that. Now miss lesbo is talking to the girl in front. I wonder if she knows that her seatmate is a lesbo who is very much into her. Well, it is pretty obvious to me. You could only be extremely innocent or thick-headed not to notice it.

Just a few minutes left before dismissal, praise the lord!
