24 Small Realizations On My Birthday
Yesterday was my birthday. But it was just an ordinary day of living my busy life and pushing through with the things I love to do. Gone are the days when I would wait for my father to buy macaroni salad ingredients for my special day.

Now, the tune of birthday celeb is different. No more Disney-inspired wishes as long as I am healthy and safe! 

What is important today is that I am happy with my life- I am expressing myself in a manner that I am comfortable. Here are 24 small and silly realizations that I would love to share with everyone who reads my blog site regularly. Hold on to your horses!

1.    My name is Christian Lizardo Aligo. Because that is what my parents said when the midwife asked them about the name of the newborn child who first opened his eyes to the world on June 1 of 1989. Do the Math!

2.    I can’t be American, in the past, present or in the future. Unless I believe in reincarnation. One thing is for sure, I'm Christian. Anglican specifically.

3.    There is no house without a dining area. And if reality says otherwise, I won't build a house that has no dining area!

4.    Lunch can never and will never be served at 7 in the morning.

5.    Melanie Marquez will be remembered forever for her amazing quotable lines. Those critics who are best in English have already rotten with their good grades.

6.    Homophobia is the real abnormality. Homosexuality is a symptom of being inflicted with fabulous-city.

7.    No man is an island. He needs another man during tough times. Or else he goes directly to a lending company to get some help he needed.

8.    Conservative people would love seeing soldiers and rebels killing each other than allowing them to make love. You know what I mean, brothers and sisters!

9.     War is for barbarians. Diplomacy is for the modern man. Thanks Fareed Zakariah for this thought.

10. China will be the next world’s super power house. For one day only. Then America resumes to its throne.

11. A chair can be a table. How come? Ask the carpenter about it. Not me.

12. Prince Harry is the hottest ginger ever! I don't care if he goes bald or not in the future.

13. I can’t start the day without a cup of coffee.

14. Canned goods are called that way because of the cans used. Make sense?

15. Macho dancers apply grease on their bodies. But they are not called “taong-grasa”.

16. GIF is pronounced as JIF. Promise, I am correct according to its inventor.

17. Life does not exist without death. Gone gothic!

18. An apple a day keeps the doctor away. This quotation has been making clinics and hospitals around the world go bankrupt. Bad quote so let's stop using it.

19. Ugly Betty is more notable than any other beauty queens in the world.

20. Try watching Les Miserables without humming or singing. And you’ll find yourself violating this deal.

21. Love yourself. But do not fool around to protect your ego.

22. Straight men are more entertaining than the real ones when they act as gays . Indeed, acting should not show the personality of the actor.

23. Again and again, you will see who your real friends are during crisis. Look at  the Eurozone and you'll see who are real friends with each other.

24. Sleep and health are the most precious ever.

Now, it's time to get back to what I'm watching: The Walking Dead. I needed to complete this before the fourth season of the series is released. Who is with me?

  1. "Sleep and health are the most precious ever.">>>> I very much agree with this. Had I known that I'd be deprived of sleep because of my work, I would have probably slept during all my vacant hours when I was in grade school and high school hehe

    Oh, belated happy birthday, fellow blogger :-)

    Miss N of

  2. Thanks! Truly, we should never forget about sleep :)
