Big Brother

Big note: I will not be talking about some reality television series this time.

This may sound melancholic, but I just realized this past few days that I’ve been longing for a big brother, or maybe even a little one. Here’s my story:

Before evening last Tuesday, I became excited when my father told me my older cousin will be sleeping over our house for the night because his friend asked him to teach something. It didn’t actually take place, so we just hung around, watched a movie, and talked about stuff. I was happy. But, it was actually my mother who made me realize that I long for a kuya (“big brother” in English). Yes, I have an older sister whom I really am close with, but I can neither play games nor watch action movies with her.

A big brother is plainly impossible that’s why I guess even a little brother would suffice. Though my mother said it is still possible for her to bear a child, it will be very difficult and dangerous for she’s already in her forties, and she have had operations somewhere in her reproductive system. 🙁

BTW, I have had my hair cut yesterday — shaved sides ang back. I don’t actually miss the long-back style I’ve had for years now, it’s so damn hot these days that I became comfortable with this new haircut almost immediately. I just don’t know how I can handle my classmates’ and friends’ teasing of gagong gupit or such when I go to school this Monday or Tuesday. Now, I really look like some fat kid who’s missing a big brother. I just hope other people won’t see it as such. 😆

One big slip of the tongue

I doubted it since I first saw its advertisement. I doubted it more after I’ve seen the show. Even more doubts came during the middle of its season. Now one big slip of the tongue gave it all away.

Many rumors already say somebody connected to the network will win. Now it makes sense to me.

Why would anyone let the rich play the game to be rich? A magazine model and an imported commercial model? Give me a break! I really think it’s for the show’s marketing — not for the challenge of playing the game.

Ok, I know you have an idea of what I am talking about. I couldn’t hold it in anymore. I didn’t really want to post something about this. The events that popped out made me do so.

Yes, yes. I’m talking about Pinoy Big Brother — the only show I think ABS-CBN’s been proud of recently. No wonder, it sure makes a hell lot of a money from its viewers and sponsors. Even tried to make them think their votes will count for the last minute. Oh, I most certainly doubt it — they had the evictee’s mother come home the night before the evictee was voted to be evicted! Got script? No doubt about that.

Quick update: Look! Somebody noticed, too.
