I am soo looking forward to January. I mean, aren't you? Everyone I've talked to agrees that 2004 has been a terrible, terrible year, and it certainly was for me. Funny, at the end of last year, I kind of lost my job, and it set the tone for the rest of the year. Looking back, the Red Sox winning the World Series might have been the best thing to happen all year.

Maybe it wasn't that bad, but it certainly felt like it. The good thing about keeping an online journal is that you could go back and read about the stupid things you wrote back then. For example, I posted this in my secret online journal last January:

And you thought FPJ running was the sign of the apocalypse

You know what's been bothering me lately? Bangs. One minute they're nowhere to be found (even Jolens has given up on them), and the next minute, they're back in business all of a sudden. I've seen them everywhere from Hollywood stars to British pop artists to Pinoy teen starlets to bold stars on Eat Bulaga to newscasters on ANC to that cute girl on Friendster. It's like, someone passed an international law requiring at least a certain percentage of the female population to wear them.

So I guess my question is, can we get a temporary restraining order for this?

C'mon, think about it. It started with the dangling earrings, and now this. Before you know it, we'll be seeing shoulder pads on blouses and jackets, ankle-length pleated skirts, big big big hair, jheri-curls and perms, those hideous big belts worn over dresses, mullets on guys, glam rock, and skin-tight, Michael Jackson pants that only reach the calves.

Then it'd just be a matter of time before Kuya Germs breaks out of his Saturday midnight incarceration, to come back on afternoon television to wreak more havoc on everyone.

And when that happens, may God help us all.

January 2003 was actually a lot more interesting for me, or at least according to my old journal. I started my professional career, begged for money at the Quezon City Hall, promoted Mozilla back when no one was using it yet, attended the first Sugarfree album launch, and found a strange visitor in my blog.

I wish the first month of the New Year would be as good to me. Or at least, just as eventful.


Uh-oh. Are you talking about the 80's? Well, that was our group presentation for SFC West B1B's Christmas party. Draw lots. Tough time. We had major techie problems and our program was not so bad...The concept? That's Entertainment. Hey I only thought of Madonna and Michael Jackson. My groupmates did the rest...
