Philippine Folklore Creatures →
When painted in this light, they actually look kinda cute… pinoytumblr: MANANANGGAL. Literally means “one that removes”. This creature is usually an attractive woman by day. At night, especially when there is a full moon, her upper body detaches from her lower body; it utters a special demonic prayer and applies some kind of oil on all of its body parts before the ‘detachment’....

Site down. No work. Will play.
I was so incredibly unproductive today.
I got started on a couple of articles but never finished it. Now I have a major headache and the pain on the right side of my face is not going away. Papa insists I have to go see a doctor for it and he’s right because it’s been there for the past couple of days now and it hurts to chew (weird thing is, I don’t feel the pain in my teeth), but I don’t have a day off till...

My side mirrors just got swiped
I was stopped at a traffic light on my way home when these two assholes got on either side of my car and just yanked the mirrors off. It took them less than 10 seconds to do it. I wasn’t even able to process the whole thing until I saw my mirrors were gone and the guys were running away. My heart started racing and my hands were shaking and all I could do was curse them to the high heavens....

A lazy day. Nothing doing, when I came across this. I thought Lindsay Lohan actually looked pretty good. There were others that were just plain weird.
Riddle Me This →
Funny how I was just thinking about this riddle a few days ago. I heard this riddle for the first time when I was in college and I was stumped then. I was just thinking about how kids these days would answer this and how it would make for a great social experiment on gender roles. Lo and behold, abc news does a piece on it. Enjoy!

Asterix and The Robe
I bought a book. Sadly, not one from my book list but it’s still a worthy purchase. (I had gone into the bookstore hoping to at least get an Akunin or a Gerritsen or even a Larsson, but no go.) Entitled The Robe, the book is written by Lloyd C. Douglas and set in the time when the Roman Empire was at its peak. It’s a pretty good read so far. The writing is sharp and engaging and...

amandalynferri: CAN YOU IMAGINE A WORLD WITHOUT CATHY COMICS?!?!?!?!?!? Trawin is straight up going to blow his brains out today . Cathy Guisewite is the reason Dave decided to become an artist. On one hand, I have a collection of Cathy books and this post just made me want to look for them and wallow in a little nostalgia. On the other, I haven’t actually read a Cathy comic strip in...

The Book List (updated)
I’m going through book-shopping withdrawal. I haven’t bought a new book for THE. LOOOOOONGEST. TIME. The last book I bought was The Feng Shui Detective by Nury Vittachi. I bought it last year from this little kiosk right in the heart of Tiendasitas. Yeah, last year. Plus, I bought it second-hand and as much as I love purchasing used books, there’s still something incredibly...
