I'm Old! And Broke! And Fat! Happy Birthday Yay!

So today, I turned 25. Dammit, I’m old.

I don’t know. I used to look forward to my birthday because birthdays bring with them gifts, parties, and a generally happy atmosphere. Now I just dread them, mainly because it’s a reminder that I’ve wasted another year doing nothing but writing profane jokes in what the kids call a “blog” (seriously, what the hell is this thinggummy you kids call blogs? Is it an online diary or something? Coz that’s so gay).

So to start off my birthday, the construction workers in our street greeted me by way of this awesome dialogue repeated ad nauseam, a.k.a. conspiracy flashback:

Son: Ang iingay nyo! Di ako makapag konsentreyt sa laru ko! Binabato ko lahat ng dumadaan dito eh! Tapos mamaya sisinghot pa ako ng rugby habang kumakanta ng Salbakuta.
Guy: Ang galing mo anak! Keep it up, tatanda ka na katulad ko!
Son: Oo naman tay, idol kita eh! Hay payb!

I seriously don’t know of a better way to start off a birthday. A knifefight maybe? With the end result of one of the construction worker’s guts on the street just in front of our house? That would be perfect, but you have to remember: they took out the streets in our village and turned them into muddy mush!

Anyway, to remind me of my impending mortality (and alleged ambiguous sexuality. Those assholes), the monkeys over at The Man Blog Forum gave me these gifts:

Pau first figured out it was my birthday. Glad that there was somebody catching up with his age, he gave me this:

A Google image search result for the keywords “Ade gay”. Go figure.

Coco, on the other hand, gave me this:

Remind me to use it on him the next time we meet.

Adam Mordo, my boss, decided to give me this:

Thank you sir, it was very… uplifting.

Juice gave me this:

A hot girl in a devil costume! Now we’re talking!

January , who knew how hard it was for me to find water in Hong Kong, was thoughtful enough to give me:

A bottle of water. To beat him up with.

Baddie decided to dedicate a song to me:

Sa ‘yo ang inUTIN, sa ‘yo ang puLAFANG, happy happy happy birrrthGAY, sana’y maBADING mo kamiiii!!!

Kris, on the other hand, gave me:

“They danced down the streets like dingledodies, and I shambled after as I’ve been doing all my life after people who interest me, because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes “Awww!””

– On The Road, by Jack Kerouac

Something incomprehensible.

Thor, knowing what I really wanted, gave me:

A cute barista! Yay!

Steel decided to throw me a party and brought some of my friends over:

Chris reunited me with some alleged relatives found on magnaye.com:


Madz gave me this:

The Kool-Aid man. This Madz, what a witty. Kool-ADE?
Get it? HUHLOLZ! High fiv- fuck you, I liked it.

LOLga, being the wonderful friend that she is, gave me this:

I dunno what the fuck this is, but I’m sorry for whatever I did to her.
Even though I don’t remember exactly what. We’re even now.

Fritz gave me something awesometastic though:

The Pick of Destiny! Holy fuck!
Now all I need is a bass to make this the awesomest birthday ever-

Oh, lookie what LOLen gave me!

A bass guitar that also doubles as an AK-47! FUCK!
Now I have something to use on those crappy bands I get to watch on my band’s gigs!

So now I feel all old and shit, but a very happy kind of old. And shit. And while we’re at it, here’s an answer to all those “How does it feel to reach some ancient age like 25?” questions (yes, Sorsi, I’m looking at you, stop bugging me, mkay?): It feels a lot like 24.

What, should my joints start aching and my back start aching or start to have erectile dysfunction or something?


  1. That's reeeeaally hilarious.

  2. dude belated happy birthday. i know it's too late to greet you that and i'm so sorry fo…seriously, shut up!

    (just kidding! if there's only one noise left, i want it to be yours.)

    and now i feel gay!

  3. No need to worry yet. The chronic back aches start at 26. The erectile dysfunction probably comes later… I'm in no rush to find out.

  4. CM

    I feel you. I really do. And I promise that if you feel God’s love, you won’t feel punished. And when you give it up, it will be far harder to want it back. I hope you find the strength in the moment to overcome the urges and satisfy the deep desires. I hope God gives it to you. Because He has given it to me.

    -Delayed reaction pero Happy Barfday! More barfdays to come until such age as when erectile dysfunction becomes a historical landmark and you stop celebrating birthdays and instead start asking existentialist questions and regularly post comments on dear god and shit.

  5. As someone who is THIRTY (yes 30. I can barely believe it myself) … guess what, you will get even older! And soon you'll look back to being 25 as when you were young. Yup.

  7. I don't and will probably never know how it feels to be 25 because I stopped having birthdays five years ago.

    But if you insist, HAPPY BOITHDAY!

  8. If 25 years old is old, then I must be ancient since Im 30. Didn't you know that 30 is the new 20??? I still feel like a teenager! Maybe you need to re-evaluate your diet! LOL

  9. Happy happy birthday Ade 🙂

  19. I'd give my present to you on the Banana gangbang rock fest coz if I post it online the police would lock me up, shut down my blog and the courts would slap a restraining order on me preventing me to use the interwubs for like 10 years.

    Seriously, I will. LOL

  27. Just graduated from being 25 a few days ago. What sucks most about aging is when girls in their early 20s start calling you kuya with an added "po" at the end of the sentence. totally kills your self esteem

  28. I listened to that youtube vid linked by helga. And I don't think I will

    be able to sleep tonight. Anyway,

    Happy beerday bro!
