WHAT IS UP WITH FRIENDSTER??? I opened mine last night and then, lo & behold, I have like 140 freakin' messages from strangers (predominantly UGHly guys... sadness. Some have obviously fake celebrity pix. Some have totally weird if not geekish interests... we don't even share the same interests at all)!!!! What's up with that?!?! Anong kaguluhan toh?! Is there some sort of race at Friendster as to whoever has 500 friends in one day? Has my Friendster ID or my name or my email has been posted somewhere nasty? WTF is up?!? My Yahoo mail is flooded with Friendster's message notifications. I haven't even finished going through all those junk messages -- some paying me compliments, some slightly perverted, some begging me to add them as a friend, some just saying "hi".

Here are the standouts for your sheer amusement. I swear it was so entertaining reading through all those junk. My comments are in parentheses:

Subject: Friends?

Message: I was browsing the gallery and saw ur sleeping
beauty kind of pic and i hope that we could get
to be friends!

(ay. aliw to ah!)


Subject: hi there

Message: i want to join in your circle of friend,would
you allow me to join?

(this made it sound like i am conducting a, uhmm, star circle talent search?)

Subject: wala lang! Ang ganda mo kasi eh!

Message: Hi! pwede bang makipagkaibigan as in? Ang ganda
mo kasi eh! nangangailangan pa naman ako ngayon
ng magagandang kaibigan to help me heal my
broken heart. sana maging friends tayo! here's

Subject: how about exchanging thoughts about neruda?

Message: just read your profile from the gallery. if you
really love neruda, then you must engrossed too
with his fellow countryman and poet Cesar
Vallejo. But there are more superior romantic
poets than them. Teach me about your music.
Perhaps, I can show a more profound world of
poetry. How about that for a start? Tnx.

(how about that for a lame, geekish small talk? :P)


Subject: hi........

> Its ok if you wont answer back... thank you

(This one, I've got to commend though for creativity... Twas refreshing to read it amidst all the lame messages I got.)


Subject: just applying!

Message: i'm just wondering if you could possibly add me
as one of your friend?i know you have lots of
good and great pals. but would you consider to
try a new one like me!we might have different
views in life but we can have the same views
about frienship.You know in the rythm of life we
sometimes find ourselves out of tunes,but as
long as there's frienship which becomes our
melody,the music plays on can you be one of my
best songs?i'm not that totally good in english
but i can be a true&good friend!thanks for
reading my message hoping to consider me one of
your's my email
ad.God bless you
always and take care.

(hmm. 'last time I checked I did not announce any openings for application at Friendster.)


Strangeness. Why had all the weirdos suddenly come out of the woodwork? They're even fearlessly leaving their celfone nos. and landlines and email addys! Freaky! ;P
