Bryan the Lap Dog
From now on, I’m going to sit on people’s laps like a cheap hooker. That’s my new thing of the moment.
Nataly invited me to her gay best friend’s (Alex/Alexey) birthday dinner yesterday and boy I had so much fun. I mean, it’s not really common for somebody from the Philippines get invited to a Russian birthday party. LOL

It was at this simple and cozy place called "Yolki-Palki", a chain of restaurants offering home-style Russian food.
I had sooo much vodka and booze to the point where my face, my neck and my chest got soo red and flushed. I wasn’t surprised by the amount of vodka everyone had… they pretty much drink vodka like water – this is Russia afterall!
Everyone was warm and friendly. It felt as if I knew them for ages even though I only met them yesterday.
OK, OK… I was being the land of the brown, l’exotique and the natives’ official department of tourism representative. I fed these Russians wonderful stories about my homeland in the deepest, darkest cesspit of the third world. Hopefully some of them will go to the Philippines. Who knows. India and Egypt seems to be a popular destination for Russians because they, too, have this visa-visa-everywhere problem.
Anyway, it really was a nice night without pretense. No talk of material things, fashion, luxury, wealth etc.
After last night, shit, I realized that it’s actually so much fun to be in the real world living the simple life.
But for now, I need to cure my hangover, file my nails and take my anti-anxiety pills.
P.S. Just a reminder: December 1, 2005 is the First International Armpit Hair Shaving Day. Read more about it here.
