sponsor

since i really don't have anything in mind to discuss about, i just want to thank my sponsor: tshirt blahs for coming up such a wonderful statement shirt for me.

whatever!

why ewik?

when i was in college i tried carrying out my second name, erik. instead of my first name which i am more familiar with (as jeff), just for a change. at first it was pretty much successful. it sounded as if i am an entirely different person.

but what i forgot was that i can't pronounce "R". so people from college started playing with my tounge, not that figuratively. they would just ask me to say phrases like: congresswoman aurora herrera or pronounce ra-re-ri-ro-ru and all those rrrr-rrrrr-rrrrr! which i really hate. people seemed like having a blast playing at me.

until they started calling me as ewik. instead of ewik. ewik the short tounge.

anyhow, 10 more days to go and its classes again! i just wish i could finish the enrolment tomorrow.

Wow, that's pretty damn special to have a shirt made for you!

Oh, yeah... I moved to: http://coffeedujour.blogspot.com

Kuya Dino found my site so I had to change it. Hahaha.

si eric din na former outcrop EIC hindi masabi yung letter "r", hence ewic din tawag sa kanya. :)

Lance said...

Changing names has also become my hobby.. My nick, when I was young, was pogszz.. I was born kasi when my mom can't get over the Mr. Pogi show in our town. Then when I realized that the name was so conceited and doesn't really speak about the truth (heheh), I changed it to Lenard. Then my elder sister gave birth to her first son, and they decided to name it Lenard! So while in college, I needed to change it to Lance.

Now, I come home to my hometown in Negros Canlaon city, my name is pogszzz. WHen I come to Dumaguete, my name is Lenard. When I'm here at cebu, my name is Lance.... xoxoxoxox

Belle Caballero said...

cute nmn nung shirt! cute din ung ewik..

prang mas ok nga ung ewik sa erik e.. unique!.. hehe..

mentholGUY said...

HAHA i can relate: I only started to pronounce R as "R" when I was in Third Year. It sucks, really, but I got the hang of it when the "grrrrrrrrr" expression became rampant during my HS days.

:P You'll surely overcome that "diction" problem.

Apir! Salamat sa pagbisita sa blog. :)

Pathbinder said...

Okey din naman yung "Ewik" eh. Parang nakakapampambata yung pangalan. :P

Josh of Arabia said...
