Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

Siege At The Manila Peninsula

If a Filipino abroad were watching CNN, they’d think that the siege was in The Manila Hotel. Oh my.

* * * * *

We were holed up inside our conference room working on another pitch, with the television on, when we heard the following snippet during the press conference with Trillanes and company:

Trillanes: “Like soldiers, we’re going to face this.”
Reporter: “Sir, how are you going to face this?”
Trillanes: (after a beat) “Whatever.”

July 2005 - Neil Gaiman goes to the Philippines for book signing. Meanwhile, Cory Aquino calls for GMA resignation

October 2007 - Neil Gaiman goes to the Philippines for the Ad Congress. 1 week later, Trillanes holds Manila Pen hostage and calls for GMA Resignation.

Coincidence? I THINK NOT!
