Notes on a Party

  • Never rush up the elevator without talking to the concierge. And the elevator would only let us up to the 5th floor. Used the stairs and at the landing, doors can not be opened from our side. Had to go down again. Attendant has card key. Epic!

  • Officially my 2nd gay party.

  • First reaction: WTH?!? Servers in wifebeaters. I suspected the worst (or the best ) and immediately texted my housemates, emotional support came pouring in.

  • Soju shots almost every 5 minutes. Soju is 20% alcohol. Had to take a shot in 3 gulps already well before midnight. The sink got clogged in puke, thankfully not mine.

  • Theme song: John Mayer’s “My Stupid Mouth.” A room full of gay guys is a perfect conductor for gossip.

  • Furtive glances.

  • Strippers indeed.
          Strippers indeed, indeed.
  • Got curious, had to tiptoe and crane my neck above the wall of frontliners. Meh. Didn’t excite me that much, wait, this is supposed to be my thing right? Self-doubt ensues. But really, not my thing, that at least I found out. (For now, maybe?) If they had touched each other....

  • He gave me an 8 out of 10. I didn’t even say thank you. Ako na ang autistic at king of awkward. A quicker wit for socializing is urgently needed.

  • Now, I carry mints in my pocket all the time. Why is this?

  • Not-so-furtive glances.

  • A kiss or two. And not with the same person. I think I enjoy kissing, but would enjoy it more if people don’t give it so easily. Even better (pronounced “evan bettah” a la Emma Watson as Hermione) if we’re on some connection.
  • I really, really love their company but sometimes I get the feeling that random kisses and pairings are parts of the bargain. Am I giving off a certain impression? Would I be considered a phony and a hypocrite?

  • Sober and not a hint of an incipient hangover. Level up! All them weaklings. HAHA.

  • Wee hours of the morning and the Baklaan death/pride march (hey bading kami, exaggeration is in order) towards McDo near Shaw station. On the way, guy in a car stared full at our direction for a few seconds, midway a U-turn, o-ha! As they say looks could kill, good thing the roads were empty or he’d have become a real casualty.
  • Breakfast menu showed up on the counter as I heaved past the heavy doors. Big breakfast! Dozing off. The Gibbs Cadiz and Les Miserables freebie, thanks!

  • Today's score: Aleph vs Aleph, 0-2. Because I consider myself as the winner.


  1. okay ah. dami mo ng adventures sayong pagdiscover ng sarili mo. by the way, okay din yung usapan nyo dun sa fabcast ah.

  2. I don't know whose company you "really, really love," but speaking on behalf of the Fabcasters, let me assure you that "random kisses and pairings" are NOT parts of the bargain. We just like to tease two guys to one another, hahaha! Oh, and kisses should be freely given and accepted--even under the influence of soju, hahaha. ;-)

  3. Mcvie! It's just an occasional feeling ah, definitely not a conclusion. The other half which I failed to mention is that if you happen to like somebody, the whole group could be your ultimate wingman, haha. And that's super!

    I would definitely have to edit that part. It sounds so unfair, now that you've pointed it out. Because in the end, it's up to those two guys and not on those around them.

    Btw, I really really love YOUR company guys! Magpapakaladkad ako kahit saan, haha.

  4. wow. you're gaining a lot of ground na ah. hope you're getting nearer to where you want to get to.

    btw, i would like to contact you privately. is it ok? i don't know how. but in any case, my email addy's in my profile. hope to hear from you soon. :)

  5. you forgot to mention the first 24 hour mcdo we passed, which is closed! masaya naman yung death/pride march ah,

  6. Hav., honga no, badtrip talaga yun ang lakas ng loob at naka-on pa yung sign na 24hours tapos sarado naman.

    Allan, salamat, not sure if I'm getting nearer, haha, but for sure better than stasis. I'll check your profile.

  7. Hehehe Aleph, no need to edit that part; it's a fair and legitimate impression on your part, so let it stay. But yes, you hit the nail on the head when you expounded on it.

    I'm actually more interested in your questions, "Am I giving off a certain impression?" and "Would I be considered a phony and a hypocrite?" That would make for an interesting conversation next time. =)

  8. Tama si mc vie! na intriga din ako sa questions. And i hope that next meeting would be sans alcohol. maybe over coffee instead?

    Anyway, agree to everything, lalo na yung una. haha ang epic fail moment talaga nun. HAHA.

  9. Ay, nahihiya naman ako, masyado akong pabida hahaha. sige pag-iisipan ko na ang elaboration, 5 page essay 'to or 10 min declamation, lol

    tama, coffee or tambay anywhere

  10. Aleph you are your own man, enjoy and do as you please. Company, friends, or whoever -- let them be there only as long as you are happy with yourself when around them. Sending you light and love, always.

  11. Toot-toot: Light and Love received!

    Touched naman ako, really. Nakakainis ka Migs, bat ang ang galing mo magcomment, haha.

  12. ganyan pala ang gusto mong mga comment, mala-papa jack lang, pa-profeound, LOL. paano na mga hirit kO, hahaha.

  13. I really really like this. Fan mo ako!
