the aftermath
I'm back from the cold world that is Tagaytay. Christmas 2003 is now officially over. After months of anticipation and gift shopping, it is now over. Just like that.

It's strange and sad though that when Christmas is over, you can feel the spirit leaving. Freaky and strange, but true. It's almost as if people are only nice because Christmas is approaching. But when the day after Christmas comes, it's almost as if something clicks in the minds of people that says, "Christmas is over now. I don't have to be nice to people anymore".

Who knows? Maybe it's just paranoia but it really saddens me, you know?

But anyway, how was your Christmas?



I just remembered a funny story that the homilist said at the start of his homily during the Christmas Eve mass. There was a priest who needed a horse to get around a town. So this local guy helps him by providing a horse. "If you want him to run," said the local guy. "Just say 'Praise the Lord' and he'll run. If you want him to stop, just say 'Halleluia!' and he'll stop. Got it?" The priest got it and rode the horse. "This is easy. Ok, I want him to run now. Um, Praise the Lord!", the priest says. And the horse runs. The priest kept repeating "Praise the Lord" and horse ran faster and faster. Then the priest noticed that if the horse didn't stop now, they will fall into a cliff. So he tried to remember what the local guy said. "Oh right. Halleluia!", the priest remembered. And the horse stopped just in the nick of time. "Hay," the priest said. "Praise the Lord." And the horse started running again.

Hehe. That certainly woke me up.
