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.

Finding “Out”

For the past few days I was a little out-of-sorts, thanks to several stressful and disappointing moments at work. That is, until I found out a little secret recently.

I’ve known this guy ever since he was still a student. I was asked by others a couple of times if he was gay, but I always answered truthfully, “I don’t know.” After all, at that age it’s not unusual for a person to still be confused. But then I confirmed that he is; not just confirmed, but confeeeermed. How? His partner confeeeermed it.

And honestly, I am so happy for him. I’ve always had this impression of him as an “always the bridesmaid, never the bride” kind of guy (or should that be “always the best man, never the groom”?), so to know that he’s had a boyfriend for more than a year just tickles me to no end.

Gay news is happy news.

Bakit naman "always the bridesmaid..." ang dating?

@MING MEOWS: Eh ganoon eh. Parang laging looking but not lucky enough to catch someone. Something like that. His situation wasn't as dire as it sounds; in fairness, he didn't angst so much about it in public. =)
