  • Sunog!

    In a matter of days… the annual interns’ Sunog! Every year during the last night of internship, April 30, all the interns lick their chops, wield their cleavers, and pump their blowtorches in preparation to burn… BURN!!!!… all the villains… Read More ›

  • Garbage

    The pointless stuff we filled our heads with in elementary! The garbage we had to memorize! And the sudden rain reminds me of an exam we had in Filipino during grade 5 wherein we would interpret some filipino idiomatic expressions/figurative… Read More ›

  • Mine! Mine! Mine!

    And in this month’s Green Lantern… …I have to run and no time to write a review, all I can say is that it has the best Green Lantern cover of all time, featuring Agent Orange hungrily hugging his orange… Read More ›

  • Heavy Rains! Meh.

    So it rains. I’m not impressed. It’s still bleeping hot, and the rain lasts for only ten seconds such that when you walk out from an airconditioned room hot humid air slaps your face senseless. If this were the 80’s… Read More ›

  • Concern For The Month

    This is not the time, to dwell on family problems, relationship problems, social problems. We don’t want to involve ourselves too much on death, the deaths we caused, the guilts thereafter, and your accusing looks. We have no time to… Read More ›

  • Abstinence

    Been successfully abstaining for 4 months. Haven’t touched that nasty stuff in 4 difficult months, and they were right, it’s not getting any easier. I dream about them. They are all I think about. I feel the urge most specially… Read More ›

  • Unhappiness of Unknown Primary—Can You Possibly Think of a More Melodramatic Title: A Self-Help Crap

    It must be the heat diffusing the drama from some unknown primary source, but I’ve been seeing a lot of unhappiness from a lot of people at work—batchmates, former interns now surgery residents, seniors called Smoketh, everyone. Some you don’t… Read More ›

  • Geeked-Out

    In terms of geeking out, you couldn’t possibly get more geeked-out than during the Season 8 episode of Smallville entitled Legion penned by the comics god himself, Geoff johns! I’ve spaced out in the recent Smallville seasons what with all… Read More ›

  • 4 Insights You Can’t Possibly Have Any Use For

    1. I used to get annoyed at the prospect of people planning major vacations in faraway places during the Holy Week, me quaintly thinking that everyone should be joining a prusisyon or eating ginataan at home while watching Jesus of… Read More ›

  • Starch Costume

    Speaking of the Flash, I happen to remember that there used to be a (very) short-lived TV series in the 90’s called The Flash, featuring the Barry Allen Flash and starring John Wesley Shipp, aka Dawson’s dad, as The Flash,… Read More ›

  • Poserhooddom

    Back in 1998-1999 I had a poser poet phase, when I would try to write as many “poems” as I could and ask unsuspecting orgmates to write in my—euuw—poetry journal. I will spare you any patronizing comments—my poems are all… Read More ›

  • Welcome Back, Barry, said Geekazoid

    Barry Allen is back. Who is Barry Allen, you ask? Well he is MY Flash. Every generation has his own DC superhero version, and my Flash is the 60’s version, Barry Allen, just as my Green Lantern is Hal Jordan… Read More ›

  • SQN

    Hands already wearing gloves, poised to take the laryngoscope and ram a tube down a gasping patient’s throat while in the sauna that is the ER, when an intern approached me hurriedly and asked something about another patient, “About the… Read More ›

  • Sushi

    As it always happens when you’re in a hurry an environmentalist accosts you and makes you feel guilty. Case in point, I was running towards Comic Odyssey in Rob to get the long-awaited Flash: Rebirth #1 which has been released… Read More ›

  • Obscene!

    Became my dad’s bantay in Medical City, and in true bantay fashion I decided to not take a bath, brush my teeth, wash my face, or sleep well. Being comfortable and well-kempt is just not being true to the spirit… Read More ›

  • Watchmen!

    Shall watch Watchmen in a few hours. Of course movies are not required to be 100% faithful to the source material, if Watchmen were done in this fashion it would last 8 hours. You’ve heard all the raves and read… Read More ›

  • Cheapo Missed Her Chance, and Other Meh’s.

    Cheapo was supposed to raise her hand in the middle of the conference and I would call her and she would ask a planted question. Yes, I can stoop that low, specially when I’m in the scalding seat presenting a… Read More ›

  • Smitheteens

    The first year medical students had their environmental hazard tour in our wards this afternoon, and I was tasked to tour them around. There was absolutely nothing to say and I was so encephalopathically sleepy, so I just asked them… Read More ›

  • Masticating

    During our Grade 6 graduation practice we were all trying to be sopranos. Yes—boy or girl, we were required to totally emulate the nun singing “O Panginoon Ko” in the exact ridiculous coloratura (coboratura? Cororatura? I can’t remember my grade… Read More ›
