Disrespect begets contempt

And just as everyone thought that day 26 of the impeachment trial will be short and uneventful, private prosecutor Vitaliano Aguirre landed on the spotlight by making a gesture that irked Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago and many senator-judges and, very unexpectedly, taunted Sen. Santiago and the impeachment court as a consequence, by justifying the gesture he made.

Just some points from a non-lawyer, ordinary citizen like me:

1. Kung nabastos ka, hindi pambabastos ang tamang solusyon.
2. You speak of human dignity when what you did trampled it?
3. I am represented by senators among other elected government officials. You disrespect them, you disrespect me.
4. Dear public prosecutors, y u no handle your private prosecutors well?
5. Thank you Sen. Jinggoy Estrada, Sen. Pia Cayetano, Sen. Allan Peter Cayetano, Sen. Pres. Juan Ponce-Enrile and all other senators for citing Aguirre for contempt.

Early favorites

You guys watch The Voice?

I stopped watching American Idol after David Cook took the crown because it has gone really bland after that (though I must say I like Adam Lambert post-Idol). Then Paula Abdul and Simon Cowell leaving the show made it just really boring.

Anyhoo, season one of The Voice produced really good artists. On top of my list is Dia Frampton whose voice is very soothing and haunting at the same time. She made quite a buzz last season for topping iTunes downloads a couple of times. My other favorites are Xenia Martinez and Vicci Martinez.

Dia Frampton
Unfortunately, none from the first season has  proved to be commercially successful. Even season one winner Javier Colon, whose voice I find too common and mainstream, couldn't make it.

Season 2 started a couple of weeks ago and melikes to share my early favorites.

From Team Blake, the team with the best talents, the eccentric Naia Kete.

From Team Adam, the Glee-ish Pip Andrew

And my bet to win this season, from Team Cee Lo Green, the dorky sandwich maker Jamie Lono

Didn't like anyone from Team Christina. Methinks her team is the weakest just like last season.

Jumping the broom

So the best friend, Chaching, and I were casually texting one morning a couple of days ago about the randomest things when she mentioned that she and her boyfriend, Lance, have marriage on their mind already.

Flashback a few minutes before our text exchange started, I was browsing the Facebook profile pages of my high school classmates and was somehow disappointed that most of them are either married or have children. Well, to be honest, what disappointed me was that few have children AND are married. So there.

Anyhoo, I asked her when did Lance proposed and she said no proposal happened. She reasoned that they were too old for that or something to that effect. The two have been together for quite sometime now, four or five years, and I must say that I think their relationship is really mature, not the type most people my age have, and theirs have nowhere to go but marriage. But, come on, I'm still hoping Lance would pull some tricks and do a proposal that would further make my best friend fall in love with him. Chaching deserves it.

Chaching asked me to be the wedding planner and one of the best man. I said yes right away to the wedding planner part. I have no experience in planning weddings but having seen so much weddings in movies I think I can pull one off. Also, I have two or three years to prepare so I'm confident. Hahaha. But I had to say no to the best man part because Lance and I, we don't know each other well. The groom's best man should be his best buddy, right? So I told him that I will be one of his bride's best man, the other one would be our bestfriend Ramphel. And as the wedding planner, there would be no bridesmaid. Ha.

So there. Thought you might wanna hear from me. =)
