Holy Week Thoughts and Getting A New Ihada

Holy Week. Yup, there's still work in the office if you're asking. Not only that, I'm swamped with "take home assignments" that I still haven't done yet. I feel like I'm back in High School. I did have fun last Friday though, the only day we didn't have work, going out for bisita inglisha as we say here in the province. After touring the different old churches here in Iloilo ( we have that in abundance I can tell you ) me and my girl capped it off to a walkathon at Molo Church, the Procession of Saints.

Now, I haven't done that in a longest while, perhaps going back to High School when I was an altar to one of the churches here ( laugh in disbelief, but its true. I was once an "innocent" altar boy, hehe ), but to tell the truth, me and my friends joined up just for "serving" the cute girls and eat the white bread and drink red wine in abundance ( see what I mean? ) Anyways, it was a little mind boggling to think that in the hour of 5pm, all traffic in the city will stop for an two hours, making way for the different processions from different churches to pass by unhindered.

Today is my ihada's baptismal. Her name is Monica Krystel Therese. Her nickname is Allie. Don't ask me why. It just is. And I don't know how Allie is derived from her name. All I know is that she'll have a very hard time writing her name when she reaches kindergarten. Ah well, minus another paycheck for me when Christmas and her birthday rolls around. Hay...

Ever had writer's block? I have that now and its like being constipated in the brain. I can't seem to put down a single word for my story. You get to a certain point and find out that you don't know what's going to happen next. You can't move your characters or the plot forward. Its like being stalemated in chess. And, horrifying as it may be, I might have to start all over again. Days of work down the drain. Arrrrgh...

I've been reading the forums for quite a while, backtracking for late news. GT is still in the works ( hopefully ) so I guess there's still time to concentrate on my writing and foregoing painting for a while. If it ever does roll around, I'm taking two new armies, Imperial Fists for WH40K and Ogre Kingdoms for WHB. Both have the same concept as my old armies, as Imperial Guard is shooty and Orcs and Goblins on the bashy side. The main difference though is the number of models, and that will take some getting used to. Hmmmm, might have to do some major metagaming. Soon ... very soon ...

Speaking of which, I'm getting my Warmachine minis this coming next month and I can't wait. Been doing some metagaming too but I do need see some games for comparison. When will this day come?! Arrrrrgh....

I was chatting with a friend when she sent me this video. Pucha, nasa GMA news team pa kaya sya?

Wha?!What the hell are you saying?!Get a grip!

Your spelling of Ihada is wrong. It should be HIJADA. As we know, Hija is spanish for daughter and we all pronounce it as IHA because it is how the spaniards pronounce it. They however do not spell it they same way that they pronounce it. Hijada on the other hand is also spanish for 'god daughter'. The Spaniards spell it as Hijada but they pronounce it as ihada. Thus, in conclusion, the rule is, when writing or spellng the word hijada, write it as hijada and not as ihada.
