gloria surfs!

What’s fun about reading the news in broadsheet form is that you can just lay it down flat on the table and look at everything in one fell swoop. To read online, you have to click on several links to read each article. It’s a slow and tedious process.

I read my newspapers on my Palm (T), so it’s a helluva lot slower.

Which may be a good thing. Because it helps to keep my blood pressure on the level.


Trolling through the online dailies though, I came across this picture of Gloria in the Manila Times. Haha. This’ll serve to keep me amused for days to come. (You kind of wish that the waves will devour her.)



I don’t know why the Opposition has difficulty trying to unseat her. There’s a security lapse right there. All anyone would have to do is release a shark (assume that’s an easy thing to do). And/OR just maybe embarrass her to death by mocking her while she tries to do a Hawaii five-o.


I really don’t know why she’s doing this. I do know that recently, the First Gentleman- what is he a First of? (Yes, I know. He’s the First Gentleman. But that presupposes two things, one is that he’s the First, and the other is that he’s the gentleman. As to the former, okay, I admit. He just happens to be the hubs of the “President”. Fine we’ll give him the benefit of the doubt. But as to being a gentleman? Wow, we aren’t that close. I can’t vouch for that.)- Arroyo recently got flak from_ the most of us for treating the gold medalists in the Southeast Asian Games to a trip to Disneyland, HK. Couldn’t he have just whisked them off away to some local paradise, the pundits said? What about their supposed aim of promoting local tourism?

Okay. Frankly, it’s Mike Arroyo’s prerogative to take the athletes wherever he wants to take them. After all, it is his money (and whatever-whomever lobbyists'). But really, our athletes deserve whatever consolation, support, prize we can give them. (We have a shitty national sports program.)

Anyway, if she wants to win the nation’s collective hearts, what she should do is… drown. Okay. I shouldn’t be too graphic. Besides, that would be evil. She should… resign. No, wait, that’s what the Opposition would say (I'm not saying that I won't be happy if she will. Hah!). Arroyo should… take a tumble for the cameras. Seriously. When we laugh along with her, we’ll realize that she’s human, like the rest of us. (Wait, why did I just recommend something the administration could use? Hay. Maybe I just want a good laugh.) It shouldn't be too hard. I mean, I was watching the Simpsons yesterday. To win her classmates' hearts what Lisa Simpson did was to splatter cake on Principal Skinner. Therefore, all Gloria has to do to win our hearts is... splatter cake on Principal Skinner. Or drown herself... or resign... what was that other one? Ah, make us laugh. Like Erap did. (She should also learn to communicate with the Filipinos in Tagalog, Bisaya, Kapampangan, Ilokano, Hiligaynon, or in any of the local languages. So that we can relate to her. She should also learn to acknowledge what the Filipinos need; and act on and for them.)


Haay. What else is on the news? BusinessWorld online says that Christmas sales plunged from last year.

If you want a reliable indicator of how the Filipinos are doing, this should be a credible indicator. What would this statistic mean? It means that either disposable income (or income in general) is down or risk expectations for the coming months are high.

Or it could mean that the Christmas spirit is down. Haha. Or kris kringle ceilings are down. (The sky is falling, the sky is falling. Ay, Chicken Little was... a waste of money, by the way. Pixar is way better than Disney when it comes to CG animation. When it comes to choosing storylines that is. Not necessarily the graphics.)

Hay. Numbers. The lot that you can do with them.


What else? Hmmn….

Ah, here you go. The Philippines is slowly trying to wriggle its way into the internet age. Via the Inquirer, Cyberspace ‘pirma’ urges Abalos to resign. In the Manila Times, PNP tracking mutineer Faeldon website; are we now in China?

Not entirely good news for everyone, but there you go- we’re wriggling our way…. (Wriggle wriggle.)

Eaten by a shark? I think not. There's such a thing as "professional courtesy." Yuck.
