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.

It’s An Obama-nation!

While watching Obama’s speech at our office conference room, I suddenly had that “I-am-a-speck-in-the-universe” moment/feeling. And I thought, how good it feels to be alive and witness a historic moment: the first African-American President of the United States.

Historic moments; I’ve witnessed a few (and even participated in one). John Lennon meets a deranged fan who imagines himself as Jodie Foster’s lover and does the unimaginable. Michael Jackson catapults the moonwalk into pop stratosphere at the Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever television special. Ferdinand Marcos mishears “Hawaii” as “Paoay”, leading to EDSA 1986. Bob Geldof mounts two simultaneous concerts across the Atlantic with Live Aid—and unleashing an unforgettable performance by Freddie Mercury and Queen. President Ronald Reagan meets a bullet outside a Washington hotel. Princess Diana gets intimate with a Parisian tunnel wall. The World Trade Center says hello to two airplanes and goodbye to the world.

So will we live to see the first openly gay President of the United States?
