Countup: Six Wheres

Where is your favorite restaurant? Shakey's. Where did you last go? The little boy's room. Where did you last hang out? My bed, for all the right reasons. Where did you go to school? Athenaei Manilani Curatores. Ha! Where is your favorite place to be? My bed, for all the wrong reasons. Where did you sleep last night? "In the pines, in the pines, where the sun don't ever shine."

Things I Didn't Do

From the Museum of Conceptual Art:
At age 30...

Mark Twain published his first short story, "Jim Smiley and His Jumping Frog."

Danish novelist Hans Christian Andersen published his book of fairy tales.

Nat Turner led a slave rebellion.

U.S. mariner Moses Rogers made the first ocean steamboat voyage.

Donald Trump persuaded bankers to lend him $80 million so he could buy the Commodore Hotel.

Samuel Morse's assistant, Alfred Lewis Vail, devised Morse code.

Physicist Armand H. L. Fizeau measured the speed of light.

Dr. Narinder Kapany invented fiber optics and designed a glass gastroscope which can be snaked down the throat for a detailed view of the stomach.

Hank Williams overdosed on drugs and alcohol.

Bill Gates was the first person ever to become a billionaire by age 30.

George W. Bush was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol near his family's summer home in Kennebunkport, Maine. He pleaded guilty, was fined $150, and had his driver's license suspended.
I'm a slow starter, what can I say?

Countup: Five Dos

Do you like someone right now? I [would] like [to kick] someone right now, yes. Do they like you too? I hope not. Do you ever wish you were someone else? Seldom. Do you know the muffin man? Mmm, muffins... Sorry, what was the question? Do you fear the future? No. The future should fear me.

JLC Word/s Of The Night 8

It was our last meeting last night so he put a little mustard on that hot dog. Nincompoops. Denigrate. Juxtapose. Apologist. Histrionics. Inutile. My favorite, if only for its alliterative quality, was regurgitated rhetorics.

Countup: Four Whys

Why are you best friends with your best friend?
Because.

Why do you have a Friendster/Facebook/Multiply/MySpace account?
Because I wanted to claim my name.

Why did your parents give you the name you have?
Because they watched too much Flor de Luna on RPN 9.

Why are you doing this survey?
Because it saves me from having to think of original posts.

Countup: Three Ifs

If you could have one superpower,what would it be? "Clockstopping" à la Hamza Rashad from Gen13. If you could go back in time and change one thing, what would it be? I would give Andres Bonifacio a caliber .45 automatic pistol and lots of ammo. If you were stranded on a deserted island and could bring one thing what would it be? A bad-ass Bowie knife.

Project Exodus: November 2003

In November 2003 I changed the name of my blog to Take Me Drunk, I'm Home and posted with a vengeance. I was proud of myself at the time—little did I know it wasn't an original turn of phrase, ha ha.
