The Social Caterpillar of Sports

My Facebook wall was previously loaded with “Go Celtics” or “Go Lakers” posts and I totally can’t relate even if I knew technicalities in basketball. Well, I used to watch basketball but lost interest so I shifted to other things like tennis. Since I don’t have ninja reflexes, I admire these tennis players for their smart but quick moves. They have it in basketball but it’s kind of different because the ball is much smaller and travels in hundreds of kilometers per hour. And I also like the spontaneous game planning. Would they squash the ball or do a drop shot?

Not to mention, they have hot players whose names sound so sexy that you’d actually attempt to substitute your surname with theirs. Example:

Robin Soderling : Kristine Anne Soderling
Roger Federer : Kristine Anne Federer (PWEDE!!! Kaso hindi na talaga mangyayari ito. Lol.)
Novak Djokovic : Kristine Anne Djokovic
Andy Roddick : Kristine Anne Roddick
Rafael Nadal : Kristine Anne Nadal (PWEDENG-PWEDE!!! How I wish.)
♥♥Te quiero♥♥

Plus, no one will be such a kontra-bulate when it comes to tennis. I find sports arguments tiresome because no one would allow themselves to lose. And because tennis isn’t popular here, I’m spared from having to argue with others.

Excitement: Check.
On the spot Game Planning: Check
Fangirl Satisfaction: Double check.
Major Argument Prevention: Check.

So tennis works better for me, aside from the fact that I took up tennis lessons when I was a kid. Kbye.

Goodbye Chimay Mode, Hello 80% Hell

All summer long, I’m working like a slave. I did most of the household chores with little or no help and I hate it. It’s a bit unglamorous but we don’t have a maid so I have to do it. It has its advantages though, because I get to make sure that everything is disinfected. I like my stuff disinfected. Plus I get to bitch around whenever there are some forms of irresponsibility that break the cleanliness and I end up getting exempted from doing a chore since I refuse to do so because I’m totally pissed.

And all that’s going to end as school starts. Thankfully.

The only catch is I’m kind of scared to go back to school because the 80% exemption grade is also going to be applied to the upperclassmen. Oh noes!

Kontra Bulate Chronicle #2: Ebola Carrier

It was a very hot day so the King of Sparta decided to fix his documents upstairs in my room. Since I’m prone to disturbances when watching TV downstairs, I went to my room instead to watch TV. And then I noticed the King’s passport, ay may kakaibang tatak! Sensing that I was staring and knowing that I’m naturally curious when it comes to foreign objects, the King of Sparta told me that it’s his visa to Angola.

“Ay patingin!” I said.

“Hindi pwede, kung sinu-sinong egoy ang humawak nyan. Ma-Ebola ka pa dyan. Baka ikaw pa ang maging dahilan ng panibagong 1 week suspension ng klase nyo.”

Bonggacious, ang kill joy talaga! Pwede namang sabihing hindi pwede, ang dami pang sinabi. Pfft!
