MARCH 27, 2002 WEDNESDAY 4:42pm
Still at the office.
My email is down.
At least PinoyExchange is online again.
I realized last night that I spend too much online doing nothing.
Well, I check what’s new with comic books, go to my usual favorite blogs, then head off to the message boards. Well, now there’s cc:Café Creatives which Brandie and I plan to promote, maybe after the Holy Week. Nice to see that people have been coming and posting. Most of them just lurk around, according to the visitor’s log. Nothing like a controversy to get people going to you site or message board. Look at what happened with Gerry’s site. After he put up that article, his message board got so busy and crazy he had to move it to Delphi. Not that I plan to put anything controversial in Cafe Creatives, but knowing this industry, I'm sure something will come up.
Well, the next couple of days will be a bit of rest.
Forced into reflection as we do our usual Holy Week routine of attend all the masses and services.
Last week, I got a break from the usual fare when I met up with the guys last Friday. Met up with the Brigade Boys… I guess that’s the quickest way to describe them. They’re not really the Alamat guys… they’re the guys who I used to hang-out with in Cyber Café… but not anymore. I rarely see the guys who supposedly comprise of Alamat these days. They’re usually in Comic Quest and these days, because of work, it sometimes takes me week before I get to go there and when I do go there, they’re usually not there.
So, anyway, I was with the Brigade Boys and Dang started to rant that didn’t blog about his wedding. Which goes to show how crazy work has been. I haven’t been able to write in my journal as well. Anyway, to fulfill my blog's only fanboy…
Dang and Doris had a wonderful wedding! It was fantastic! We were afraid Bow would make a fool of himself when he gave his best man speech… and he did. But he looked like a good fool. Everyone thought he was drunk, but that didn’t really matter because everyone laughed in all the right places.
It was also interesting to see the German Boys at work. Which makes me wonder if there’s some German manual on how to host a show or how to entertain guests, because they were all saying the variations of the same jokes, delivered in the same manner. It was amazing! It was funny! It was the Germans!
Big surprise of the evening was hearing Doris sing. We told her that if she ever decided to leave the corporate world, we’d be her managers and Mark would get her in the ABS-CBN talent pool and have her do medleys in ASAP with whoever is promoting an album or movie that week.
And despite the fact that it was a wedding, reception, outfits, and all, it didn’t feel like a wedding. It felt like the TAGG boys just had a very big get together. And I wondered what Rog would have had to say about every thing. I suspect he would have been the most sentimental of the bunch. Then again, who knows, he might have gotten married way before Dang. Who knows, indeed?
Anyway… going back to that Friday night.
We met up with them at Jade Palace. They just came from watching QUEEN OF THE DAMNED. Which prompted Dang to ask, if you had to fight Lestat which super-hero would you be? And the answers ranged from Superman to Colossus to the Beyonder. They should put us in Cinema One!
We then moved to KSP where we spent the rest of the night talking about the Sopranos and our favorite Twilight Zone episodes.
Saturday night, Brandie and I met up with Karen and Tricia at Big Sky Mind, where we were all surprised to find out that Hank is now the bartender. Jing came along and Eddieboy followed and we just talked about a whole lot of things that had nothing to do with the world of advertising.
Those two nights felt like a mini-break from work.
That we had the chance to hang-out with friends and talk and laugh.
Given the money, I’m sure our lives would make a great Kevin Smith movie.
“Fun! Fun! Fun! Or your day back!”
