0 Doomed Wednesday


My credibility when it comes to dates and the Gregorian calendar got so screwed up this morning when I told half of my “SMS friends” that the purported Doomsday—December 21, 2012—will fall on Friday the 13th! My inbox was immediately flooded by since-when-is-13-equal-to-21 questions and I was like, “Whatever happened to cognizance?”

Adding to the mess I just created, I also found out—upon looking at my phone’s calendar for the nth time—that Friday the 13th is not even gonna occur in December 2012!

I believe that THAT “event” was induced by lack of sleep. Some of my friends believe it was simply classic stupidity.

On my way to work, I got soaked in some other mess once again. I was running late, it was raining cats and dogs, and I was like, “Where is that cat-killing UP scholar when you need him most?”

When the dogs finally killed the cats—or is it the other way around?—I felt a sudden relief. But fate was so playful, I didn’t foresee dealing with the DAILY traffic jam along Shaw Boulevard—Whatever Happened to Cognizance? (Part 2)!

I got stuck in the congestion for about 20 minutes, I slipped on the wet road when I got off the passenger jeepney on my way to the MRT station, and the rest is history.

Is today Friday the 13th?

Water For Elephants: A Quick Review

Francis Lawrence’s Water For Elephants is basically a story about a forbidden love between a homeless man and a circus acrobat. The happy ending of their love journey began when the circus elephant named Rosie killed the fifth wheel.

The production design has helped the movie in successfully retelling Sara Gruen's novel of the same name. But while Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon were all-out in personifying Jacob Jankowski and Marlena Rosenbluth, the much-awaited onscreen romantic chemistry was just not there to wow the moviegoers.

Three stars, five being the highest.
