The Place We Ran From

Serious question.

When and where is it proper to fart?

I raised this question since a male colleague passes gas every time I run into him in the men's room.

His fart is not even the silent kind. It's the one that sounds like a deflating balloon. Plus, it stinks. Big time.

He goes on with his business as if nothing is wrong.

Raft3r, on the other hand, is bothered.

Why would someone deliberately fart at me?

Back To You

Raft3r was almost debt free.

I paid off all my credit cards and had them canceled.

How did Raft3r celebrate?

I hit the stores and bought 19 DVDs.

Back to the old drawing board, then.

Run, Fatboy, Run

Raft3r was in the mall, minding his own business, when a sexy and attractive saleslady approached him.

Sexy saleslady: "Hi, sir."

I grinned.

Sexy saleslady: "Try mo 'to, sir. (Try this, sir.)"

She handed me a flyer and said, "Pampapayat. (For weight loss.)"

Damn it. That's the last straw.

New Thing Now

For four straight Saturdays, I rendered overtime work.

Yes, Raft3r is now a changed man.

Others refer to this as a
paradigm shift.

I simply call it matinding pangangailangan (dire need).

Comeback Kid

After nine months, the prodigal son returns.

Junjun is finally home.

Although the case has a lot of setbacks (Having the arraignment reset to November 10 is one of them.), small victories - like getting Junjun back - still matter.

I Can See Clearly Now

Malaysia through Raft3r’s eyes:

- Kuala Lumpur is a very progressive city.
- Long and winding roads abound. Nausea alert.
- No pork in the menu.
- Reckless cab drivers. That’s just the way I like them.
- Curry is everywhere.
- There is no shortage of deodorant in stores but no one seems to be using them.

Age Ain't Nothing But A Number

Have you ever dated a cougar?

A friend is setting me up with a lady who is in her 40s.

She is said to be funny as hell and filthy rich.

That’s 2 out of 5 in Raft3r’s dating guidelines.

Not bad, not bad at all.

Heard she is also drop dead gorgeous.

Positively Somewhere

I am hopeful.

I always believe in the power of prayer.

I am helpful.

I laugh a lot.

I can still change.

Despicable Me

I do not enjoy reading.

I pick my nose while driving.

I leave people hanging.

I detest boy bands.

I spend like there is no tomorrow.

I no longer attend Sunday service.

I give false hope to women.

I eat like a pig.

I do not like chicks with facial hair.
