The Grinch

I don’t care how annoying it is but Wham’s Last Christmas counts as my forever favorite song for the Holidays. Taylor Swift’s rendition also finds itself atop my personal Christmas hit chart. There’s also the spooky classic God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen or Mariah Carey’s Silent Night.

My most hated though would be The Twelve Days of Christmas. I mean, have you ever tried singing it? It’s unending! You would age even before reaching the 5th day bellowing it. It’s so longish your entire noche buena would have become your meja noche. And then, there’s also this ridiculous I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus of Jimmy Boyd– a tale about a Christmas pass on adultery.

Anyway, enough irony for the night. This season where everyone around you oblige you to be your happiest, I hope you are and will truly be happy.

Like a (Christmas Party) Virgin

It’s been long since I’ve had a ~real Christmas party– complete with the obligatory exchange gifts and the sardonic laughter session that comes after one unfortunate being unwraps his/her gift giddy, excited, hopeful… only to get a scented candle.

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.

With my new graveyard schedule, I am nothing but fascinated. And I’m not being sarcastic cos really… I love the wee hours. Someday I just have to be bestowed with a good slumber and I guess I’m good.

During my shift, the newsroom is unbelievably cold and quiet. But with my ANC crush in the other alley, I ain’t complaining.

And since it’s December 1 today, guess Christmas is just around the corner. Look! There’s snow falling down in my blog!

Rushing (again),


You can tell Jesus that Barry is Back

Nope, not blasphemy. It’s just me blogging once again.

How long has it been? A month-long hiatus is unforgivable perhaps, but anyway here I am: Restoring back my stats, showing people that I still exist (that may be unfortunate to some), and most of all, etching my last memories of 2009. I love this blog; I owe this passion to you my readers a lot. I can only leave this blog if I had a permanent writer’s block. Which is impossible for me since my mind (and mouth) CANNOT shut up. I always need something to store my absurdities and occasional relevance, and IDIOTBOX has been that enclave for more than three years now. ( Read more… )
