So here I am, writing a blog entry which probably won't get published tonight since brother is using the phone. And since I am a crammer, I still haven't done my Phil. Lit. assignment despite the fact that it is due tomorrow afternoon.
I was supposed to meet Magic from LitSoc since I was supposed to help him promote the RPG talk on Friday. He got the approval from DSWS but they (DSWS) forgot to get the approval from OSA so we had to go to their office and then go back to DSWS. It was awkward for me finding places to pin the posters for the event, considering there's as lot of ads that gets pinned up in Ateneo yet no one realy reads them.
Celadon is now selling Lord of the Rings The Two Towers premier tickets for P300 each. Mine came with a free mag (Chemical) since I bought more than five tickets (I bought a dozen). I'm supposed to get another freebie but it wasn't ready yet today so I'll have to show them my stub tomorrow. Oh yeah, there's also reserved seats available but they cost P500. I'm broke, especially after purchasing one dozen tickets. 'nuff said.
Of course I told Carlos that Celadon was now selling The Two Towers premier tickets. He said he'd think about it since it was so expensive. Me being the evil person that I am, I showed him the ticket (which has a huge Legolas picture at the back) and pointed out to him that they'd be giving away The Two Towers 2003 Calendars on the event. Well, he claimed that he'll buy tickets no matter what.
Okay, you're probably asking why I'm not giving Carlos a freebie ticket, considering I did for Elbert (and for Chanty and friend... yes, from the goodness of my heart, I got you tickets) and date (yes, it was great foresight of me to write "date" and not Jamie... probably the same foresight I had when I said both of you would be a couple two years ago).
While Carlos does love Lord of the Rings like a fanatic (he bought the Collector's Edition DVD!!!), well, he loves as lot of stuff like a fanatic (like Eva, Batman, Sandman, Blade of the Immortal, etc...).
Secondly, Carlos is friggin rich (as I said, he could afford to buy the Collector's Edition, which costs $75.00, and yet is hesitating to get premier tickets?). Just last Saturday, he was offerring me and Elbert some Mentos.
Elbert: What flavor is that?
Elbert: Is that available locally?
Sorry, just had to put that anecdote in. Wow. Carlos offering us candy not normally available here. You might say I made up that relation about not buying tickets for Carlos just to write what happened last Saturday (because I forgot to write it down on that day).
Meanwhile, a lot of cosplayers apparently attended the UBE Jam at the FBR building. Of course I was kuripot
and didn't want to spend P100 just to get in so I went home that day. I wonder if the one who took pictures with Katya at CCHQ is anyone I know.
While we're at the subject of Lord of the Rings, the Collector's Edition of Fellowship is available at Neutral Grounds. Sadly, it costs P5300. I could have saved P2000 if I got it from Elbert a month earlier. But I didn't have money then either. On a side note, Astrovision is getting the Extended version (which will also be played by Celadon this Friday). It's just a question of time (this month or next year?) and what kind (four disc set or Collector's Ed?).
One more week to go before Christmas break. Unfortunately, I have class until the 21st. Which means while people will be claiming their plushies at the Culture Crash Convention, I'll be in Ateneo, attending a 3-hour class (but it's a lovely 3-hour class though... minus Leo).
Also had to give Garrick his tickets once I came out from school. Passed by Neutral Grounds and lo and behold! They found Benj's long lost Gundam model kits (they're Master Grade, if I'm not mistaken) which disappeared several months ago when a mechapinoy member misplaced it.
Lastly, I did see PJ this morning (she saw the tickets and decided to skip her reunion and go to the premiere... mostly because of the free calendar [I am so evil!]... and the fact that her favorite character will be making a debut, hopefully). One question that I keep on forgetting to ask her though is why exactly she broke up with her ex, Rob. Not that I didn't see it coming (on the contrary, I was right in my assumption that it wouldn't last a year... sorry to be mean but my "stalker perception" enables me to perceive things in a more "objective" mannner... unfortunately, it only works on other people and not myself) but I'm wondering if it's under the conditions I thought. As for her boyfriend (congrats!), well, I basically lack insufficient data. Don't know him so I can't make judgements about him. Hope he makes you happy PJ! ^^
