Blood, blood, and more blood

September 27, 2009

I always have a thing for blood – human blood. I must have been a vampire in my past life. You think so? I must be Lestat, Louis, Dracula, or Edward Cullen. Haha. Definitely, not the latter. Not that I hate Twilight Saga or something. Anyway, I have been watching gore-saturated movies lately. And I can’t seem to get them out of my head. I wonder what their blood types are when they splatter off the screen. As for me, I forgot my blood type. I had it checked when I was a kid. Could I become an AB if my mom’s A and my dad’s B? Just a thought.

I know I’ve always wanted to be a nurse or a doctor. I wanna hold a scalpel, 10-blade, clamp, suction, and all those stuff they use for sutures or surgeries. Geez, I wanna cut someone open when I get angry. Does that occur to you as sane or am I totally out of my mind? But darn, poverty sucks that I can’t even go to a med school! I guess I had to live with my fantasies, wearing cute scrub caps and become one of the best neurosurgeons in my wildest dreams! Fuck, Grey’s Anatomy reruns.

Why are some people afraid of blood? Mostly, big guys. My team leader lost his senses when he sees blood. And, his like six footer or something. My team mate’s boyfriend who’s a basketball player can’t take a look at a drop of blood, much more a bucket. Must be the tough, big guys. Hmm, makes me wonder.

Twilight Saga fanatics, congratulations. Who has never seen the Twilight: New Moon Trailer? Well, I have to say the effects were cool. Compared with the first one, I think this one will be a hit. Take a peek!

Facebooking

September 15, 2009

For the past few days, I’ve been thinking about what to write and came up with nothing. I guess, I’m too tired to think. I don’t surf the net often because most of the time, I’m snoring. Believe me, I’ve been sleeping for 8 to 10 to 12 hours a day. I don’t find going to parties and drinking sessions exciting anymore. Does this mean I’m getting old? Nah! That could be one of the reasons why I haven’t thought of updating the site.

Anyway, I just want to share the things that keep me from boredom everytime insomnia kicks in or when it’s my rest day and I don’t find myself hanging out with friends. And that is Facebooking. Do you think Facebook is a social networking site? Well, think again. The reason why I signed up for Facebook is not to gain friends. Dang, I ain’t that friendly. Haha! Well, I signed up because of the games. And here are the top 3 games that I always play.

1. Farmtown

Well, the main goal for the game is to level up and expand you farm. You can buy buildings like barn, farmhouse, chicken coop,or mansion, or you can buy flowers and trees that will bring the colors to your farm. May ganun? All you need to do is plow and plant to gain more money. (Tip: You can have yourself hired at the marketplace and gain money and experience) So, if the farm has a lot of things in it, then the owner must be rich! Just like me. Hahaha!

2. Restaurant City

Just like any other games, the goal is to level up and expand your restaurant. You can decorate your restaurant with as many stuff as you want. You can also choose dishes and drinks to serve to your customers. You have to level your dishes up to gain more experience, thus leveling up faster. You can buy ingredients, too. Where can you find a tomato that’s worth 4,700? Only in Restaurant City. So, you can trade ingredients with your friends to save money. Ang pangit pa ng restaurant ko kasi low level pa. haha!

And here is my avatar. Now, that’s cute! By the way, he’s the chef.  Ha ha!

3. Word Challenge

Pasensya, walang picture. Tinamad ako eh.

The game is simple and no, the aim is not to level up, but to have the highest score ever! I think everyone has played text twist. So, I don’t have to explain a lot. This game is just like Text Twist. You can challenge a friend and beat them with your vocabulary and excellence in twisting letters. So far, I’m still the running champion with 16,332 score.

But if you still think Facebook is a social networking site, you can add me. My email address is brain.work@rocketmail.com .

Fine, I just need more friends. By the way, I had to use a different name. Dami ko kasing stalkers. Hehehe!

The Comeback

September 8, 2009

Okay. No violent reactions, please. I know I have been away for long. And I mean for looonnnng. Have I told you I already resigned last March? Darn, that was ages and I haven’t updated this site, too. Hmm, where should I start?

Okay, I resigned from the previous job last March. Or was it February? I can’t really remember. Anyway, I finally tendered my resignation letter due to financial demands. I had to send my sister back to school. I have to work as a callboy again. Medyo malakas na kasi ang prostitusyon. Haha. Kidding aside, I was accepted in Convergys and have been working there for about five months. I guess that would be a good reason why I haven’t been writing the past few months. Being a probationary employee isn’t that easy. I had to beat a lot of bones to keep up. Come September 27, I have to be regularized (is this even an English word? hehe). Please pray for me. Pambili lang ng bigas.

Well, I don’t think I have lots of things to say for now. But I will sure be visiting your sites. Watch out!

P.S. Merry Christmas! Hahaha! 😆

On being away

February 16, 2009

I know that it has been a while since I have updated this site. Truth be told, WordPress has been blocked in the office for a not-so-valid reason (well actually, the reason why it was blocked is that WordPress is a “forum” site, which I completely disagree).

Well, I know for a fact that some of the employees (count me in) resort to blogging when boredom is getting in the hair. You can’t help it. We can’t be playing Pinball and Spider Solitaire all the time.

On second note, some of us don’t do our tasks anymore (again, that counts me in). But wouldn’t it be nice not to block WordPress, so we can bloghop and get new ideas from other bloggers? I mean, the field is writing. Wouldn’t the blogosphere be a great help?

I don’t want to whine, but yes, the current project’s not doing us any good. Two of my colleagues have resigned because of being burned out. Somehow, I also want to express here that I, too, don’t have any drive to do the job anymore. To think, those two are our front runners. They are the cream of the crop (read: they are paid the highest). Darn! But I digress.

The thought of it is just excruciatingly exhausting.

And oh, the internet at home’s not back yet since I haven’t paid the 3-month bill plus the reconnection fee yet. How convenient! Hehe

So, I’m telling y’all that I might be away for a while. And I will surely miss you.

P.S. baka di muna ako makavisit sa ibang sites. One hour lang ako sa cafe eh. hehehe. 😆

Why Beyond1123?

February 3, 2009

I should’ve written this when I started this blog.  A number of people have already been asking what’s behind the link. What’s beyond1123? Why that link, when you could’ve chosen thegobbledygook, gibberish, or randomwits? Well, besides the fact that most of them are already taken, there’s a story behind that link. And by the way, the thegobbledygook is used for my poems, which I think would be of no use since I won’t be updating the site anymore.

A lot of people have asked me if my birthday’s November 23. Well, the answer is no. I know, you guessed it from the numbers in the link. To tell you honestly, I have always been fascinated with numbers. I love Math, and oh numbers. Math had always been my favorite subject in school. And that 1123 right there is no date, my dear.

Do you know about Fibonacci’s sequence? Let me remind you. 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34… Do you see any pattern? I’m not doing a lecture here, so might as well open another browser and google it. Or, you can choose to read/watch The Da Vinci Code. Ha-ha.

Well, my world during my school years has revolved around numbers . One of my majors during college was Math (Physics being the other, which also uses Math as language).

So, why beyond1123? Well, that simply means beyond numbers – beyond the obvious pattern. I wanted to deviate myself from the usual, from the predictable. I wanted to delve into the world of the unknown, the unexpected.

Why beyond1123? That’s because I’m no Math-geek anymore. I don’t eat Calculus or Trigonometry for breakfast now. I don’t even dream of matrices at all. I don’t compute flow rates of beer, or test the acidity of vodka. I don’t deal with flourescence or some photoacoustic conversion anymore.

This is the real me – the little boy who dreams of cotton candies and eats sunny-side up eggs for breakfast. Deal with it.
