Note: I made a brief introduction about Pictures of Life (Hulagway sa Kinabuhi) on my sidebar just above the Bisdak links. There's an English version of this post below for friends & visitors who do not read Bisaya; and well, for fun in linguistic exercise as well.

B as in Bayot

Aw B diay ha... pwes ania ang bayot ko'ng kauban sa trabaho. Way libog si Amo kung bayot ka o tomboi, strayt nga laki o bae, diborsyado o minyo, may ka lib-in o may kabit, byuda, byodo, manyak aw perbert kung isog rang manyak; prigid, kaslonon o bigo basta kabalo ka lang sa imong trabaho - bira.

Nagparti mis ika-doseng estori sa bilding dese otso. Ang ingon sa memong gipadala sa among Awtlok pre estayl ang suot. Haskang abtika lagis mga kabayotan naka kustyom oi.  O atikas Sno Wayt ang kapa ana pirting taasa. Nabiktima intawon ang tibol klot sa pod kort. Nagparid pa ang herpin sa iyang ulo. Kay ikaw daw maglukdog plawer bis di ba mo bugdo imong taas ug ubos.

Kaning bayota ang ako lang ning na hulagwayan. Daghan ni sila halos kada pakolti lagis unibersidad naa. Gakalandrakas lang agi pero en pernes mga hawd kaayu nis ilang maydyor.

Di nalang ko mo konpisal kun ako nang sa wala o tuo kay basig maapil ko anig kabayot lisud na. Pero kung makatag-an mo, aminon ra pud nako.

Kung gusto mog bayot nga padyent ang birada kani di namo mag nosblid ani kay maningles na ni - Mistaken Identity.  Ang ubang entre sama ani tua sa Bisdak Bloggers.

So we're doing B today. Here's a bayot (gay) from my workplace. Boss doesn't give a damn about sexuality or civil status, sexual practices or preferences. If you can deliver you are hired.

As soon as the freestyle dress code instruction hit our Outlook inbox, this party on the 12th floor of Bldg. 18 was an instant riot of gays who typically ruled the costume scene just as you would expect them to take every opportunity to shine on the catwalk. Behold Snow White! Her train stretched meters down to neighboring chairs. Some poor table in the food court got stripped of its linen. And if you balanced such pretty burden of a flower vase on your vivacious head, you would not furrow your brow at pins parading on your hair.

She's just one gay who managed to swan glide into a snap.  There are several of them gracing almost every faculty in the university. They're hardly recognizable at this event though on routine academic days they're experts in their respective discipline.

I'd rather not confess which side was I posing or I turn into a bayot myself complicating matters in the process. But if you can you can guess whether it's I on the left grinning like an idiot or on the right cupping a silicone, I will admit it.

Fancy more gays? Mistaken Identity will not give you a nosebleed as it is mused entirely in English. Otherwise head on over to Bisdak Bloggers for more entries featuring letter B.

The Rumford is a much more efficient way to heat a room than earlier fireplaces....(Wikipedia on Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, designer of tall, shallow fireplaces which are now known as the Rumford, was an Anglo-American physicist known for his investigations of heat)Living in the tropics, I have been in close proximity with only three fireplaces in my life. There was an unused one in the home of my college professor in the Philippines. The other one from which I could feel the heat and see the fire dancing was in a hotel lobby in the Yorkshire Moors. Picture taking was quick. Two old ladies were having tea by it, but that was my first ever real fireplace experience, and I loved it. The latest I have touched is the one in Jane Austen's imaginary Northanger Abbey.
The fireplace, where she had expected the ample width and ponderous carvings of former times, was contracted to a Rumford, with slabs of plain though handsome marbles, and ornament over it of the prettiest English ch…

Sense and Sensibility: 200th anniversary

In 1811 Thomas Egerton of Whitehall, London published Sense and Sensibility. Quick math shows it has been two centuries since Jane Austen became a full-fledged author.

Quite an anniversary, indeed. A celebration, I declare.

Blogs regarding the publication anniversary of this romance novel picture Jane Austen's engagements whilst making the final touches of her manuscript from Sloane Street. In letters to her sister Cassandra, Jane gave accounts of her shopping for muslin, the party that their brother Henry and SIL Eliza gave; mentioned several acquaintances, and referred to her book as S and S.

As a fan I wonder which between sense and sensibility did JA deem more important since she portrayed both attributes equally well. I'm obliged to enthuse over my S & S reading experience. Alas, I only managed fourteen chapters before getting sidetracked by another novel, the very first that JA wrote. I will resume and complete my affair with the celebrant before 2011 ends.
