...and, as usual, 90+% of the city's establishments will be shut tighter than a duck's arse for the next four days.

However, to show my UTTER CONTEMPT FOR THE GENERAL NARROW-MINDED SANCTIMONIOUS IDIOCY OF THE CATHOLIC BISHOP'S CONFERENCE OF THE PHILIPPINES*, I am posting SPOT.ph's link of Establishments That Will Be Remaining Open In Metro Manila from Thursday to Sunday, and you might actually find me at any one of the ones here in Pasig City:

Metro Manila is '7-11 of disasters', says the regional director of the UN International Strategy for Disaster Reduction.

So, of all the cities in Southeast Asia, Metro Manila is the most vulnerable to typhoons, earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, epidemics, landslides, droughts, volcanic eruptions and forest fires. Gosh, I hope not all at once.

Part of the blame falls on a laughably inadequate drainage system, barely-enforced anti-logging laws, and a badly-designed water collection system. Regarding the latter--seriously, every single fucking year the La Mesa Dam dries up to near-catastrophic levels, and no one has yet hit upon the very simple idea of a decentralized cistern network to collect the tons of rainwater 20+ typhoons dump on us annually?! And don't get me started on the corruption rife in the bureaucracy, we'll be here all day.

At least the building codes are pretty redundant. And our unfortunate geography isn't our fault. (Stupid ancestors.)

Well, I've yet to tick tsunamis, landslides and forest fires off my Personal Danger List.

No, it's not a holiday, but this day's supposed to commemorate something. Damned if I can remember what it is.

...

Oh. It's the day the country got royally fucked.
pssst, Wikipedia, you've got your dates wrong.

UGH

1. caught the flu, god knows where. Took the day off and spent half the day asleep, the other half watching/not really watching videos/staring at the ceiling.

2. YOU SICK, STUPID, SICK FUCKERS.. I can't bring myself to watch the news, I can't take the shame and embarrassment right now. You stupid, stupid assholes, I hope your Facebook walls get swamped with angry, angry messages.

Won't get fooled again, eh?

So it's President Wet Noodle and Vice President "The Self-Proclaimed Pinoy Obama", eh?

And speaking of Binay, a word to the wary from [livejournal.com profile] erdilien23's Facebook page:
Ayaw n'yo kay Korina as 2nd Lady ng 'Pinas? Mas matakot kayo kay Elenita, lol.
(Trans: Don't want Korina [Sanchez-Roxas] as the Second Lady of the Philippines? Be afraid of Elenita [Binay], lol.)

Dun dun dun!



/I guess I can be thankful for one thing -- if Cory hadn't died and Noynoy hadn't run, we'd be looking in horror at Joseph Estrada, President. How fucking embarrassing.
//Fuck it. We deserve the people we vote in. Filipinos are stupid.

Even if My Boy doesn't win, I will be fine with Wet Noodle becoming President. Maybe after several drunken binges I will also be fine with the Grasping Orange Opportunist being President as well.

But if Erap WINS... Dammit, then what the hell was EDSA II for?!

So NOW I get my sample ballot, an hour before the polls open. Of course, certain names have been helpfully highlighted for my convenience. Talk about making sure I NOT VOTE FOR YOU, people. Yeah, I'm looking at you, incumbent Pasig City officials. Sheesh.

where no matter what happens the Tiny Package of Evil in a Three-Piece Suit will be voted out of office.

At any rate, I must get up at the crack o' dawn to be all civic-minded and whatnot. Now where's my List of Lesser Evils? Definitely not voting for the Wet Noodle, the Grasping Orange Opportunist, or She Who Is The Eater of Souls, Mistress of the Dead Eyes. Screaming Banshee is on my list, though, purely for the entertainment value.

Calling F.H. Batacan -- perhaps this can serve as material for your next Filipino murder mystery?

[NYTimes] Sinatra Song Often Strikes Deadly Chord

The My Way Murders? The Sinister Sinatra Mystery? The Karaoke Killings?

/maybe I should take a crack at it
