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.

Night Fall

It felt like I was in Malate or along Tomas Morato, except that I was walking on sand. The music they played, the dancing lights, the crowd—well, in one bar where most of the advertising agency people converged, it looked like Greenbelt for a night.

My officemates decided to get drunk and dance. For a while I was grooving along with them, my movements familiar and reassuring. But after a while I grew tired. Eventually I excused myself to walk along the beach.

The half-moon was blazing brightly, and the stars were out. The water gently caressed the shore. The sand felt hard under my feet.

This was about as emo as I can get in such a place.

I wanted to clear my mind. I wanted to just be at peace. But Lady Gaga was blaring in the background, asking people to fuck her face.

Eventually I went back and danced some more.

Enjoy ur weekend there, Mr Mcvie.

I like the name Lady Gaga. It sets the trend for names like Sir Tado, Duchess of Dork, Countess of Cluts, Baronesa Basagulera, etc.

I still have the name fever in ur previous post. Hehe

@CARRIE: We should tell Migs of MGG to make a second name game, after the BB Gandanghari one. How about:

Prinsesa Pukengkeng
Earl Engeng
Queen Que-horor!

That BB name game was hilarious. :)
