The Deadbeat Club turns one year old today!

To celebrate this joyous occasion, here are some quotable quotes from the past 365 days:

I am in no way an emotional guy. My exes would make sure you know that. (As I Am)

Despite the notorious reputation of my birthplace, I don’t ever recall being mugged, shot, robbed, stoned, stabbed, drugged or gang raped. (Wouldn’t It Be Nice To Be Proud)

I’m no team player. So basketball doesn’t suit me. I have the tendency to just think about myself and forget about my teammates. (The Rafters)

Maybe, even as a child, stupidity has always been my greatest trait. (Don’t Talk To Strangers)

I mean I couldn’t even sustain a relationship for more than a year. How could I possibly survive an eternity with someone? (The Wedding Crashers)

Voyeurism is such a thrill. (The Cure)

Gadgets are like women. They are both temperamental. Gadgets, just like women, are also expensive to keep. (My First Night Without You)

We should not resort to name calling. It reflects poorly on how we are as a Nation. (Bitch)

Adult life is so complicated. Not only do you have to find a job to survive, you got other things to stress about. There’s your love life, your kid’s education, your boss, your meager salary, your favorite celebrity switching to another TV network. It’s insane. (Bills, Bills, Bills)

So to all I had previous relationships with, rest assured I never lied. I just didn’t love you enough. (Would I Lie To You?)

I am more than just a pretty face. (Beautiful Ones)

Maybe one reason I have so many failed relationships is that most girls I have been with pale in comparison to my mom. (Mother)

Home is still the best destination. (28 Days Later)

Wedded bliss comes with its own baggage, wife included. (The Space Between)

I always liked Japan. Regardless of the ruthlessness their people did to my ancestors, Japan remains to be a dream destination. (Turning Japanese)

How can an activity that involves a lot of spending be considered by women as a great stress reliever? (It’s All About The Benjamins)

I know how it feels to lose something you badly want. (Wimbledon)

It's sad that an icon like Janet, who has broken numerous music records and paved the way for artists like Beyonce, Rihanna, and Aaliyah, will forever be remembered for wardrobe malfunction. (Crying Shame)

Call me a cheapskate or even a tightwad. But I will be laughing all the way to the bank. (Cute Boy Discount)

Pretending is still one of the most popular games people play. (Sunday Morning)

For the first time since my junior prom, I am actually stressing out on what to wear. (All For You)

It's better to be buried in debt than to be buried six feet under. (Somebody Told Me)

I’m no team player. So basketball doesn’t suit me. I have the tendency to just think about myself and forget about my teammates.

-That made me laugh out loud. Now I know why you love tennis (singles, of course). Congrats and keep blogging!

Happy 1st anniversary! Galing ng idea mo dito sa post na ito, it saved you of thinking what to write, kopya na lang sa old posts, medyo reminiscing pa ang dating! Ma diskarte ka talaga!
