The Jograd Factor
Ah, yes… 25 things you have to know about me. I don’t like answering Friendster surveys and Facebook memes any more than my next Facebook friend… I may have jumped the gun there. Of course people like answering memes!
Rather than snub meme-happy friends, I decided to overshare some of my quirks – all true – just so that people will stop tagging me in their Facebook notes/memes. Quirks like:
- Sleeping with stuffed toys.
- I’m more comfortable unbuttoning my fly than zipping it.
- I have delusional thoughts about pink elephants.
- My favorite animated feature film is “An American Tail: Fievel Goes West.”
If that’s not enough, here’s a gem of a MaroFact:
18. I have a thing for all things jologs. I am a Rovic-Eds fan for
life. I believe that Jolina Magdangal and Marvin Agustin should be back
together. I believe that Bojo Molina’s acting talent was squandered
because of a stupid action flick… I believe it was “The Mariano Mison
Story.” I believe that the most emotionally empathic song ever made in
the 1990s was not “Halik” by Aegis, but “Pag-Ibig Ko’y Metal” by Jograd
dela Torre. Chances are, you probably don’t know what I’m talking about.
You would think that the mere mention of Jograd dela Torre would stop the Facebook meme madness, but nope. I should have mentioned Jao Mapa, the Dragon Katol commercials, Referee Pwisto, “Saigo No Iiwake” (the Ted Ito version from Maskman) and the greatest hits of Renz Verano. I should have mentioned Amanda Page, for the heck of it.
Why stop there? Why not post videos of Jamie Rivera’s “Tell the World of His Love,” or proclaim to the entire world that your favorite thing in a lunch pack was them chili-filled hot dogs? Or those triangle-shaped juice boxes?
Point! You can overdo oversharing every now and then.
No, not in this generation of Leona Lewis listeners, point!
The way I see it, Facebook is making its way to the long gray line of jologs-ness because of memes. I’m now waiting for the animated, colorful, CSS-based GIF profile backgrounds that have Cynthia Patag polka-dots.
