Sta Fe, Cebu

Why am I not surprised

Here they go again.

But I give the effort 100%. If only they give the same level of effort to help solve the more immediate and greater problems of our beloved country.

Henin is No 1.

So okay, this is not new. But Henin is No.1 again. And deservingly, after winning the WTA, 6-4, 6-3 against Amelie.
Someone asked me why I liked Justine to win, to be No.1.
At first I said because I didn't like Masha to be it. I found her to be full of air (which she also uses a lot when she grunts very loudly in her matches). She does win of course (she won a lot this year).
Maybe I am sour-graping (because she earns more than I do, because she's more fit than I am --read: more sexy, hah! C'mon). Etc.
But I cannot say this anymore. Charity.
I like Justine, because I like her better to be No. 1.
And she wears Adidas.

Future mayor!

You must have seen that my blogroll or links has a link to Future President! Apparently he is running for mayor of Manila come 2007. I have always believed that he is better fit for an executive post. While he has not been inactive in the Senate (and I think still the only Senator who does not touch his pork-barrel), he could do more in the executive branch. The Presidency is an executive function.

The mayoralty post is a good springboard for the TOP (The Office of the President!). Let's reverse Erap's route to the top, it could still work!

It could also be good for him this way. Might "stab" him in the back, to get him outtaway.

Free this man!

Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury's trial resumes today. He who spoke about having ties with Israel. Now the bad Muslims want him dead. Might as well include his family, huh?. Free him now!

Sir Elton

Sir Elton says a mouthful. Yet. Again.
Against the favorite whipping girl: religion. Tsk. Tsk.
Write songs and sing them, instead.
As he says, I think there are those in "religion" who may be too harsh, but I believe they only do that because they do not understand fully their "religion".
But to blame religion for all his "troubles", that is stretching it too much. Then again, what else is new?

2 women miracles

A Sao Paolo lady survives 6 gunshots to the head. Bullets fired from handgun by crazed ex.
Masha doesn't get her number 1. Henin does, after a 6-2, 7-5 (5) win over Masha in the WTA Championships in Madrid.
Yes. Miracles still happen.

Two more Rossoneri in the injured list:
Giuseppe Favalli, with twisted right knee, until 2007, from 4-2 win over Brescia
Gennaro Gattuso, with less serious left knee injury from 0-2 loss to Atalanta

Trackback on injuries


‘Queenie’ intensifies as it moves toward land
Storm signals up over several Luzon provinces.

The Queenies I know aren't as harsh as this.
One is my niece, shown here or here.

Here's one picture (na nga), in pink.

St John in Lateran

Today, the Church celebrates the anniversary of the Dedication of the Basilica of St John in Lateran, the seat of the Bishop of Rome, and that's the Pope. St. John in Lateran is the Cathedral of Rome, the mother of all churches in Rome and in the world. Founded by Constantine, during the time of Silvester (314-335) it has been destroyed and rebuilt many times. The current basilica dates from the 17th century.

That's me, with Ric and Jude, 2002.

Beside St John's is the Scala Santa, where the stairs in Pilate's praetorium that Jesus climbed after his scourging is preserved and venerated. The drops of blood are preserved. Pilgrims would, if they could, climb the stairs on their knees.

Ammendment 2 in Missouri

Ammendment 2 passed in Missouri. Watch it, they'll start producing clones and killing them over there in no time-- worse crime. And, oh yes, they'll be a lot of rich "biotech" companies that part of town too (you got money to spare, buy shares!)

Trackback, why I believe so.

Going to work early today, I saw a "for-sale" sign taped on the back door of a small van. Besides the contact number, the notice also included in parenthesis (woman-driven). I don't drive so I don't really know if that was a plus-factor for the van's sale, considering the many "driving people" I know who frequently blame "woman-drivers" for many near and actual accidents on the road.

Sometime in the future, I also want to do this.
Read for them, silly. I wouldn't mind listening too, of course.

One of the few Brazilians I like, Kaka' is slowly becoming King of Milan. Scoring his first hat-trick in UEFA Champions League against RSC Anderlecht November 1, he now has 5 goals in this edition. Too bad, he couldn't score against Atalanta in Serie A in a 0-2 loss yesterday.

ACMilan is 5th from last in Serie A. Kakha Kaladze suffered a big thigh injury, while Nesta will probably just miss a week with a shoulder injury.
