Yesterday, I went home at 5am.
Woke up 5pm.
Got back to office at 10pm
It's now 4:35am.
It's Ground's Hog day!
Strange things you find on the web at 4am
Darna has a big following online. The club has over 160 members.
Hey, I consider that big!
KC now has a website.
And it's damn good looking website.
Gaiman talks about hanging out with Michael Chabon and Will Eisner.
Wow! To be able to join that dinner table and just listen to them talk about their stories.
must go home now...

I can't believe I misspelled "proof reading" in my November 11 blog.

My City of Kandor
A colony of termites invaded my comic book box! Shocking news indeed!
The good news is that the termites were too busy eating the box and not the comic books. For some strange reason, they started eating the Alamat books rather than the American comic books. Goes to show they have taste? (You should have seen that joke coming.)
The termites also made a home a box full of old documents and sketches. Again, nothing valuable was really lost. It’s a good thing I put all the Alamat artwork in a separate box and pulled it out of that cabinet. But my doodles and sketches from high school and college are now all gone. I doubt that my drawings would eventually be compiled and sold as a coffee table book, but there are times when I just like to look back and see how my ideas started. I think the termites ate the sketchbook that had the Payaso sketches. It was half-eaten and covered with dirt and little termites running around.
Anyway, it just goes to show that the most valuable comic book is just food for the termites and getting sentimental pieces of paper doesn’t really matter to the colony.
So, right now, my little room has gotten smaller due to all my stuff being on the floor and I need to clean up and clear it all out.

Last night, got out of the office at 9pm, after porrfing reading the mechanics for this his promo (mechanics which were written a week ago and could have been checked by client way back then, but they didn't.)
So, needless to say, I was the last one to arrive at my birthday dinner.
A grand entrance. :)
All of the guys were seated at the furthest table in the back.
The moment I entered the restaurant, they started to sing happy birthday and didn't stop til I got to the table.
What can I say, I was the star of the whole place. :) he he he
We had our fill. I think we ordered something from every page of the menu.
Ended up at Dencio's afterwards for a couple of drinks.
This branch is connected to a Par-mini-golf-place.
College kids were all over the holes. (hmmm... that didn't sound too good)
Anyway, guess they missed that Par44 craze when it all started years ago.
Geez... I feel old.
Got the Assunta canlendar from Mark and Petite.
Yeah... something to keep me happy all year `round. :)
Today, Saturday, got out of the house 6pm.
Met up with Dave, Carl, and Arvie at Megamall.
Carlo "Avatar" Santos later joined.
It was fun to be with the guys again and talk about comics books.
More fun was seeing all the new artwork from all of them.
I half-expected Dave to whipp out a new script from his bag, but he had nothing new to show.
He did say that he's been rewriting the AVATAR scripts.
Carl's new project is damn funny! Scheduled for a summer release.
We already figured out who to cast for the movie version.
We'll pitch it to Viva as soon as the book is done. :)
Got to see some pin-ups and sketches of AVATAR from Carlo.
Arvie showed me sketches and breakdowns for the anthology story.
Well, seems like 2002 is going to be an exciting year for comic books.
