Apparently, I won the nominations for "master stalker" and "pasan ko ang daigdig" for the blue roast. They'll be taking my photograph on Monday...

Long Weekend

It's one of those sleepless weekends where I spent most of my waking hours playing RPG. Well, that and mastering Contra for the PS2. And we did spent four hours playing a game of A Game of Thrones.

Food Poisoning

I neglected to mention that a certain concessionaire at the Ateneo cafeteria finally got kicked out for food poisoning. While this is good, my initial reaction is why only now?

I mean I have friends like PJ who got food poisoned from probably the same vendor two years ago, when we were still playing RPGs at the caf. Oh wow, when a student complains, the school does nothing. When a recruiter from a multinational company complains, well, that's the only time the ball starts rolling. (At least it's not like the farce at Xavier when PAASCU comes visiting...)

And you thought your school cafeteria was horrible...

Oh My God!

I tried visiting Google and it automatically redirects me to the .ph version. And it's in Filipino! ("Maganda ang kutob ko" for "I'm Feeling Lucky")

It's One of Those Days

When I come to school for my one class, and find out it's a free cut.

D&D Books I'm Getting for the Year

Unearthed Arcana (February)

Revised Psionics Handbook (April)

Complete Divine (May)

*hint* *hint*

And I'm still looking for a game, whether it's D&D or D&D Miniatures. ^_^

It isn't really so bad that Atenean students promote their events via email, but it's really annoying that they send 1 MB images. Even the images are just glorified text, so it would have saved everyone bandwidth if they sent the email using plain text. I mean you're bombarding my mailbox and I have other emails to read. It's perhaps acceptable in a website but not when you're mailing it to me. You might have as well dumped garbage at my house.

No One Really Listens

I've been complaining to my family about the smoke the enters our house during the evening. Of course they just shrug me off. In a strange twist of fate, my brother is now staying in the guest room because he can't stand the smoke, and he was chastising me before for sleeping in the guest room when I had my own room. Even mother started smelling the smoke, but she probably wouldn't have realized it if I didn't throw a tantrum.

Vicious Cycle

My block has some surplus money (not a lot, mind you) from the recent events we had. Of course as one would expect when it comes to money matters, the question on how to dispose of it eventually comes up.

I did suggest that some of the excess money go to a fund for next year's batch of students, since they will be having the same project and it would be nice if there was a little starting money for them to begin with (mind you, starting money, not an entire account which pays for the whole project). Unfortunately, my blockmates disagrees with me, giving as a reason that they want the undergraduates to suffer as they did. Of course this kind of mentality is the same I've heard in high school, when seniors wanted a harsher initiation rites for the freshmen, and the scenario of bullying in general.

It's Been a Longer Weekend than I Thought

After a three-day weekend, I arrive at Ateneo to witness several changes in the span of three days.

First, there were these people from Nescafe who could be mistaken for Ghostbusters. They had these backpacks with a cyclindrical case inside it as well as a hose attached to it, which they were wielding in one hand, and a coffee cup in another. And there were four of them, wandering around the campus looking for customers.

Then I enter the library where the guard stops me and asks for my ID (it was already hanging from my neck). Apparently, there's a new device that scans the barcode of the ID and bleeps if you're a registered student. I guess students sneaking past the guard will have to bring their present school year IDs rather than last year's...

The third shocking event was when they closed off Gate 3 of Ateneo (or the one opposite KFC). Or rather, vehicles can't turn left anymore but have to turn right. It was also a big hassle for pedestrians. It was a sight for me though as there was a traffic accident there.

Post Which Will Probably Grant Me Hits

Gayuma has temporarily relocated to 41 A Esteban Abada, 5 meters past Alvero St. across RCBC bank.

You can call 0917-8118163 or 0918-5216278 for orders.

As much as I love sleepovers, the one thing one doesn't really get during a "sleepover" is sleep. And I guess during RPG sleepovers, you can also add food and water to the list one is deprived of.

On a side note, I did learn how to play the board game A Game of Thrones which is based on novel by George R.R. Martin. It seems that there's a lot of political strategy involved in the board game, which can also take as long as three hours to play.

Of course most of my friends were far more comfortable playing D&D Miniatures, which while takes quite awhile to setup (looking for one figure in a mass of two hundred), is much quicker to understand and faster to play than A Game of Thrones. Unfortunately, I apprently lost two figures (one's a zombie, so I really don't care, while the other is an Axe Sister, an uncommon figure, so that starts making me worry).

The Return!

well, it seems that Gayuma's back. But I haven't found the time lately to scower Katipunan, and the one person that knows is keeping everyone in suspense.

I Failed... fulfilling my ten books to be read in January. I only ended up reading nine.

On a side note, my first year grades are finally cleared up and I finally got my transcript. I'm also on the revised list of students graduating this year.
