I’ve been attending a lot of FGDs lately, so I decided to write some lyrics about a guy who, well, starts liking a girl that he meets at one. Wala lang. And yes, I am quite bored this morning. :)
It was a ho-hum day 'til I entered that room Your face in the two-way mirror did away with my gloom You said “I’m 24 and I draw stuff” I fell there and then The facilitator asked what my job is She had to ask again
We looked at 4 print ads I wished there were more You said you could do better My jaw hit the floor We heard some snickering from inside the other room You looked at me and rolled your eyes And my heart went boom
I found true love at an FGD 6 other people are here Oh woe is me My heart is ecstatic We’re the same demographic Our hands touched briefly when you passed me that Coke
Now we’re wrapping up and everyone is leaving They’re handing out the tokens that we’ll be receiving I asked “Who’s your favorite singer?” I said I liked Sting You said that you didn’t like the ’80s Except for Wings
I lost my love at an FGD The selection criteria is flawed and faulty We’re the same on paper But I’d never date her The whole thing is just one big joke
I’m thinking of starting a webcomic called “Imaginary Friends.” Every strip will feature me having discussions in my head with both people I know and don’t know. Like what I’d say to Martin Scorsese, or to Zooey Deschanel. Maybe it’ll be fun if it’s not just people I like, but people who I’d like to criticize as well.
The EU Parliament has on several occasions stated that access to the Internet is one of basic human rights. Now, Finland has become the first country to actually declare fast (broadband) Internet access a legal right.
In practice, this means that telecom companies in Finland will be required to provide all Finnish citizens – all 5.3 million of them – with broaband Internet connection of at least 1 Mbps, starting in July.
That’s not all. According to the legislative counselor for the Ministry of Transport and Communications Laura Vilkkonen, the plan is to provide all the citizens with even faster broadband speeds (100 Mbps) by 2015. “We think it’s something you cannot live without in modern society. Like banking services or water or electricity, you need Internet connection,” she said.
I finally finished Season 5 of Lost. It wasn’t as good as the third and fourth ones. Personally, I thought the whole time travel thing was a bit unnecessary. But then again, Lost is a series that raises more questions just as soon as it answers your old ones.
The point, however, is this: I’m now free to watch whatever the hell I want! Thing is, with Lost, I just really wanted to be updated with the series that for about a month and a half, UAAP and Crime & Investigation network shows aside, that’s all I watched. I’ve got a lot of DVDs and AVIs at home, and now I can finally get to them.
There’s something relaxing about listening to reggae on a surprisingly lazy Friday night. Especially when you’ve got new earphones, your eyes are closed, and you’re leaning back on a familiar, comfortable armchair with your feet propped up.
Thanks to Chaka Demus & Pliers for “Tease Me” and the reggae rendition of Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing.”
