THAT DAMNED KLEZ VIRUS!!
It's been confounding me a lot the past several weeks. I've received a total of around 50 of these Klez viruses in the last 3 or so months. I update my Norton virus updates every week so any new virus won't be able to get in my computer at all and they're automatically deleted or quarantined.
But it seems I may be sending it off myself without ME knowing. Already, 4 people have written to me asking why I have written to them and didn't say anything in my email. All of these people got the message from my "firstname.lastname@example.org" address, an address I haven't been using for 3 months now.
So I'm not sure if it's coming from me at all. Or maybe it's the nature of this virus. But how can that be when I've not clicked on any attachment aside from those that I've checked as safe and my virus checker has checked safe?
If you get an email from me from "email@example.com" and it has an attachment, don't open it!

Someone once wrote to me, "So when are you gonna update the Filipino Artist of the Year?", referring to my Filipino Artist of the Month section. FUNNY! Apologies for not updating it more often. It's official. I'm a total slacker. I'm opening a new website soon, totalslacker.ph. It will never get updated.
Filipino artist spotlight is on RUDY FLORESE, future father in law. Thanks to all who sent in suggestions on who to feature. I'm keeping all your suggestions in mind and will feature them eventually.

I can be so star struck sometimes. I just saw Cheri Mercado today right here in San Pablo! Cheri who? you might say. Well, I guess you'll only know her if you watch Philippine news at channel 2 or the early morning show Ala Sinko Y Medya on weekdays. She's not really an actress, but she started out as a news reporter, and is now an early morning news/variety show host. She's really very cute and I've had this little crush on her for a long time. I had dreamed of meeting her once, and wondered what it would be like. Well, today I saw her just a few meters away as she and Bobby Yan taped a segment for Ala Sinko Y Medya at a local food specialty shop, El Mare along the high way. Ilyn was with me and she was amazed at my reaction to Cheri. "My God! You're so star struck!!" she said. He.he. I guess I was. I wanted to get her autograph, but I got too shy to approach and ask.
