The Antisocial Network

Dear blog,

I’m sorry for haven’t been updating you. It’s just that I’m preoccupied to the point that I almost can’t even breath. It’s like I’m trapped in a boudiour where drag queens are also free to come in, making the room more crammed than ever. I’m having so much fun though. It’s like I’m always on an adrenaline rush. Which means I don’t have to spend for any cardiovascular session in a health buff parlor aka The Gym.

Twas my first time in the place, and so I have to thank Chuicide for my unplanned quasi-wasted night. (She later called me a “hipster-virgin” as if I had kept a friggin’ hipster hymen.) This was definitely one for the books. ( Read more… )

Things We Do for Happiness

Did I just get myself kind of buzzed from those supposedly  innocuous, GV-generating mini-doughnuts from Cello’s Doughnuts and Dips? Met up with Riziel and Chino at the pastry place this afternoon, nibbled, ate up maybe less than 10 delectable choco-Oreo, choco-peanut butter, chocolate chip peanut butter, and other hybrids and suddenly, it felt like I just got myself imbibed. Too much endorphins, I believed, just transformed me into a  hyperactive… Dionysian.
