37 Random Things I've Learned in My Life So Far
Our SPOT.ph blogger Lourd de Veyra’s 37th birthday epiphanies.
By: Lourd de Veyra  |   Published on: Mar 1, 2012 - 6:00am

 

1. Pineapple on pizza or a hamburger: one of humanity's monumental mistakes.

2. The phrase "I'm not a lawyer but..." is almost always a preface to an annoying statement. You're not a lawyer? Then shut up.

3. Tequila is still best without salt and lime.

4. Pointed shoes will always look silly. Also, never trust anyone who wears cowboy boots.   Unless he's Pepe Smith.

5. Any party where you can hear any song by Pitbull or "Superbass" is bound to be horrible.

6. No leftist or Islamic radical is immune to the charms of a US visa.

7. When somebody claims to be "freelancing" what he really means is "unemployed."

8. When an illiterate sees your stack of books, more often than not he will ask, "Nabasa mo na lahat 'yan?"

9. Never befriend anyone who calls Boracay "Bora." Nor should you befriend anyone who watches professional wrestling.

10. Gingko Biloba doesn't work. Especially this one brand, but I forgot the name.   

11. Boxers for ventilation, briefs for protection. You can never, ever choose only one.

12. The more expensive the car sound system, the cheaper the owner's taste in music.

13. To paraphrase H.L Mencken: "Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the Filipino public." The dumber the TV show, the higher the ratings.

14. If you're on the verge of vomiting, take a swig of sweet fruit juice just a few seconds before--to alleviate the taste of bile.

15. Don't bother starting an online debate with anyone with an anime/robot avatar. It's a tragic waste of time.

16.   Replying to hate mail from someone who doesn't know the difference between "it's" and "its" is a big waste of time.

17. One day you will be uncoolespecially in the eyes of your children.

18.   Just because you're stoned doesn't mean you have to eat that dog food.

    33. The only thing you should put on hotdog is mustard. And maybe some mayonnaise. - how about the caramelized onions and pickles? ketchup ?

    20. I really, really do not like milk tea. Good thing these, too, would soon be a passing trend, like shawarma and pearl shakes. -- you should visit Singapore, milk tea here is no passing trend. it has been here for so long and will stay.. better quality than what you had there... oh and I LOVE MUSTARD!

    Completely agree with the hotdog with mustard. That's the only way to eat that junk. Anyone who says otherwise is a moron.

    hey i love wrestling. -_- just grown up oily men in tights grappling each other (and sometimes women get to fight) never fails to amaze me.

    but it's the fact that it's a 'truthful lie' makes it great. it does not pretend the drama is real, it tells you 'i'm fake, but i know you want me'.

    watch FMW. watch it. especially the exploding ring match. waaatch it.

    my favorite lists are numbers 7 & 25.

    Favorite lists for the senate-judges, prosecutors and defenses on the CJ Corona impeachment are numbers 2, 8 and 13.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY LOURD AND ADD ANOTHER 37 LISTS IN 37 YEARS FROM NOW!!! ;)

    36. Just when you're starting to love your job, you'll get fired next month.

    aha! you're referring to the reformatting of your morning show right?

    Sapul sa 5 pinapanood ko dati instead of UKG or UH kasi mas walang yabang mga hosts ng Sapul sa 5. ngayon na pinalitan na sya, tapos dinagdag pa sina christine bersola, congratz at si lucky, hayzt, di ko na sila pinapanood. nagdodota na lang ako kahit maagang maaga. Lourd, mas maganda pa din yung Sapul sa 5 kesa yung bago ngayon.

    Lourd, kelan ka ba babalik sa pagsusulat ng buong buo? parang bitin kami lagi. kunsabagay naiintindihan ko naman na busy ka na sa TV pero sana maipagpatuloy mo ang pagsusulat ng masinsinan. Nagmamahal, ang iyong mga tagahanga.
