X-Men: Messiah CompleX

I have been a fond reader of comics since I learned how to read. In fact, I may not be as fluid in the language if I haven't been reading those things as a kid. And the title that appealed to me the most during my childhood days is X-Men.

And if you're the type of person who lost interest in the this hobby once hair started growing in places of your body not everyone is seeing, then I'll update you on what's happening. As of today, mutants are an endangered species. Less than 200 hundred mutants populate the Marvel Universe, and for the last two years or so, no new mutant manifestation ever occurred... until today.

*** Spoilers Ahoy ***

This is the central theme of Messiah Complex. A mutant birth, and everyone who wants to claim power over the mutant population are all after the same kid. The reason: unknown. But the future of everyone hangs on the balance and whoever will get a hold of this baby will turn the tide of war and might have a good chance of getting the upperhand in holding the mutant's fate.

We're almost halfway to this weekly event that brings all X-men teams, and contrary to past events A LOT already happened.

A team of X-Men from different era's were assembled to find a new mutant in a small town in Alaska. Unfortunately, they're not the only ones who wants the child. Mr. Sinister and the mutant hating Purifiers are also looking for the child. Unbeknownst to all of them, another one is also looking for it... it's purpose... DINNER!!!

Cyclops knows they're one step behind everyone else and quickly asks for help from everyone he can get to find the child. THe X-men decides that to get to Sinister, they need to get a hold of everyone Sinister's dealt with... enter the Acolytes.

Enter Madrox (the Multiple Man) and Rictor. Being an investigator, Madrox must visit the two possible futures to find out what happened in the present when the baby was born and how it affects the future. And as for Rictor, since he's not a mutant anymore he has to infiltrate the Purifier's headquarters and find out if they have the child.

Meanwhile the new breed of X-men decide to take on the very same group who murdered their classmates... the Purifiers. Suffice it to say, being greenhorns that they are, things turn for the worse.

The X-Men attack their adversaries on all fronts and their efforts were for naught. Wolverine lost his healing powers, the New X-MEn possibly suffered another casualty and were teleported to different locations, the mansion gets attacked by the Sentinels.

Good thing the baby is in the hands of a good guy... Cable. But is that really a good thing?

They say that how your room looks is a basis as to how neat a person is. But don't be fooled, my room looks clean at the moment because my parents just returned so the whole house has to look neat. In a couple of weeks time my room will return to looking like a pigsty. I'm really a slob. In any case, the things you'll see in my room... On top of my telly are two speakers from my kickass sound system. Beside the fan at the bottom right side of the pic is my XBox 360. Boxes of my purchases are found on top of my closet and my books and comic books as well. Believe it or not, my framed diplomas are the one at the bottom left side of my room.

Here's my perfume collection. This is basically my vanity cabinet. Can you name all the perfumes there?

That is my bed. On top of it, aside from my pillows is the book that I'm currently reading (Foucault's Pendulum). I'm trying really hard to understand what it's about. And that white thing over there is the controller for my XBox 360. My comics box is the blue thing there that you see

That's my comic book collection obviously. The titles that you're seeing are Justice League of America 1, Astonishing X-men, The Mighty Avengers, Friendly Neighborhood Spider-man and World War Hulk. Below my comicbook collection are the cases of my PS2 games, Xbox games and DVD movies. Right now, my DVD titles are Harry Potter 2 and 4, 300 and Transformers.

Nov. 25, Sunday: the country's in the midst of a storm and I really don't have anything to write for my journal. Maybe next year I should create another 100 journal entry goal for things to do in 2008. Thinking of a reason for not coming to work tomorrow if the weather doesn't tame (if that's the correct term).

Let me tell you something about my current job. But before anything else, for those who know what my previous job is, and might think that I've made a mistake... I do not regret any decision I've made in my life. I'm starting over in another call center that's on a day shift. Yes, I am an agent again from being a Supervisor. Like I said, I don't regret this decision.

I really have no plans of returning to the call center industry after I left my previous job. I want a real, minimum-wage-earning-really-stressful-but-connected-to-my-course job. As what I've said to some people at work, I don't want to waste 4 year's worth of tuition fee and allowance from my ever-loving parents (naks plastic!!!).

ANyway, as I said, I'm working in a call center again. This time though I'm not dealing with sales, it's more of customer service and sometimes a little of technical support. Another difference is that I don't deal with Canadians, but their equally nice counterparts in Australia. Also, I'm not dealing with credit card services, telephone lines or computers, but this time my account is about cellular phones... postpaid cellphones. As with my previous entries to protect myself and the company, I'm not going to namedrop.

Here's the thing, before with my previous job, I never really had a problem with regard my attendance, but with my new job, I've only been there for like 3 months but I've already been suspended. Definitely not a characteristic of an ex-supervisor. Although, I am proud to say that tardiness is not a problem with me.

I'm actually thinking of leaving soon, it's just that there's a bond where I'm working so that means I have to stay until March. But, once an opportunity comes my way, I'd grab it. Me being the grabber that I am hehehe.


Maybe in the future I'll think of going to another country, or starting my own business. I just don't know what to start. Do you guys have something in mind?

This is the first time I've blogged in months... Hopefully this time it will be more frequent... I finally have a computer and internet access at home!!! All the more reason for me not to have a social life!!!


BUt this year's been good to me (maybe not professionally, but hey life throws us stones at times, right?)... And as the end draws near, I will be writing some of the things that happened to me in 2007. The highlights of this year.

  • I resigned from ICT as the account's supervisor!!!
  • I started from scratch on my new job (no aspiration to move up at the moment though)
  • I bought an XBox 360
  • I lived in Marikina for 4 months (and got fat there)
  • Fortunately, I lost 20 lbs after I left (that's 6 months of diet and exercise)
  • Oh yeah, I'm working on a day job now!!!
  • Of course, blogging won't be possible if I don't have a pc (all the more reason for me to be absent at work).
  • My parents went to the US and came back with perfumes for me!!!
  • I might spend Christmas this year pennyless. THank YOu outrageous TAXES!!!

Hopefully, blogging will become a regular thing from now on. Thank you Globe wireless broadband. I'll keep you posted, and might post some pictures as well. And maybe I might get back my wit and write some funny entries. Cross your fingers.
