  • Keyser Sosi

    Ex-housemate Keyser Sosi was recently found slumped in the pediatrics callroom unconscious, cyanotic, and frothing in the mouth. I am yet to visit him and I got this information 6th-hand, so I am not sure if the cyanotic and frothing… Read More ›

  • Last 3 Minutes

    RTD’s on drugs or scientific discoveries or critical appraisals of whatever are boring. There I said it. If not for the free food I probably wouldn’t go, so if there’s any drug company reading this you’d know how to captivate… Read More ›

  • Something To Say To Donna Troy

    As I’ve recently blathered about in this blog Donna Troy has laid their mother to rest about a week ago, with the special participation of everyone from PGH, the UP Med Choir, and of course, Boots Anson-Roa. And Selecta Ice… Read More ›

  • Calling Mark V.

    Went to the wake of Donna Troy’s mother a few nights ago, and as with any huge family events Donna Troy was not familiar with all the visitors. And before the night was up who should come in but a… Read More ›

  • Esplode! Esplode!

    I wanted to watch something explode so I went through some old episodes of the excellent Batman: The Animated Series, wherein something explodes every 8 minutes. Nothing gets more explode-y, of course, than the excellent feature, Batman: The Mask of… Read More ›

  • File Under: Too Much Information/Self-Deprecation

    Way back in March 2006 while typing the census in the interns’ callroom Ditz the Titz caught me listening to Kelly Clarkson. I wasn’t particularly a fan, but her songs were in my computer. So she’s catchy, sue me. I… Read More ›

  • F*uck

    Yes, the asterisk stands for a U, ie, fuck. I was re-reading my old Friendster blogs out of boredom and was reminded at how the word fuck, or any “salacious” word for that matter, invites a barrage of spam comments… Read More ›

  • The 50th degree

    I attended to Pyro’s ER patient one night being duty and all, and that night her tumor bled massively and she instantly arrested. I eventually revived her, but she kept me awake all night, having to run for blood and… Read More ›

  • Cheezums

    Having written that rather elongated rant on the reeking falsehoods of my childhood (shame on you adults of the 80’s), I suddenly developed a huge appetite for Chikadees. I know it probably wasn’t that great, but its unattainability makes me… Read More ›

  • GBC

    While eating lunch in the callroom one day some weird muzak suddenly blared out seemingly from nowhere. “What the fuck is that?!?” JD shrilly screamed (actually he just monotonically asked, “ano yun?”). “Is that a ring tone?” I asked. After… Read More ›

  • Reeking Falsehoods!

    Wherein I rant about all the falsehoods of my childhood and expose them for the nasty lies that they are!1. That there is a huge ship of vampires in space and that the vampires will disembark anytime soon. And it’s… Read More ›

  • Pervy Porn Peddling Practice

    I mentioned in my recently-deceased Friendster blog that for some reason DVD vendors always seem to single me out to secretly peddle hidden porn DVDs. Apparently I am not alone in this, so my porn facies is happily not unique…. Read More ›

  • Blog Fodder

    Having placed down my bag, my laptop, and my clothes in my dorm room on a Sunday evening after a relatively entertaining weekend I crawled to the bed and discovered 3 brown maltesers-look-alike. That smelled like crap, because they were,… Read More ›

  • Sakgona/Versit

    Eventually my brother and I ran out of DC and Marvel comics to read, having digested and regurgitated the boxes and boxes of my father’s 50’s and 60’s comics. By regurgitate we mean plagiarize. In the summer breaks between grade… Read More ›

  • Battle for the Cowl

    In the aftermath of Final Crisis which I didn’t understand one bit, what with ten scenes going on at the same time, and with a bunch of characters I haven’t heard of, and with Wonder Woman being evil the whole… Read More ›

  • Valentimes

    After running an errand in Asian Hospital I decided to eat in alabang town center, and realized it’s valentine’s, or as I prefer to call it, valentimes. I thought it was just the 13th. So I decided I would go… Read More ›

  • Hospital Gossip

    Is getting old. Yes we shouldn’t dwell on or proliferate gossip, but when you are trapped in a compound composed of people with cancer, heart failure, and Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease, and you can’t watch TV on a regular basis, and you… Read More ›

  • Drunketh

    Recently told Smoketh a real-life problem and realized it is regrettable that we don’t drink alcohol. Because as much as I love substances I never really gravitated to drinking on a regular or semi-regular basis, always thinking that all alcohol… Read More ›

  • Murder!

    Years ago the most popular and most accessible barbershop in our town was one beside the stagnant town river, where our father would drag us to have our hair cut during Sunday. We would look totally uglified after, but we… Read More ›

  • Almost Famous

    Years and years ago Smoketh was feverishly highlighting her anatomy transcriptions with multiple colors while sipping some expensive coffee in Starbuko. That was in 2001, when there was no Wi-Fi yet and the only thing you could do in Starbuko… Read More ›
