In a bit of a rush, but I want the break. For this week’s Thursday Thirteen (Fridays in Manila), I write down 13 dream jobs, if money and practicality for these jobs in the Philippines were not issues.

1 Paleontologist. I never grew up, really. The dinosaur fascination is still there. I wish I were Ross Geller.
2 Archeologist. I’m fascinated by mummies and history. I’d love to do a study of something in Sagada with all the mummies there.
3 Forensic Psychologist. Even before CSI and Bones, I was already fascinated by death. I would’ve gone into medicine if I weren’t so damn queasy at the sight of blood.
4 Full-time CCM Songwriter/Singer. If I could be a CCMusician for the rest of my life and make a good living at it, my life would be perfect.
5 Record Store Owner/Clerk. There are times when I look at Sue Prince and grit my teeth in envy.
6 Cartoon Voice Talent. Again, if I could do this for a living, wow, what a life.
7 Volkswagen Beetle Car Dealer. You know how it’s so easy to sell something that you’re very interested in? You know how you get excited when you talk about a great film or song? Picture doing that daily, making good money while selling your dream car.
8 Chef. I love food and I love making it. Why can’t I be a chef anyway?
9 Editor of a Major Magazine. I started LIVEtheLIFE Magazine on print, and it didn’t work out because I couldn’t manage the financial aspect of the business. But I can do any presswork blindfolded with both hands tied behind my back. While riding a unicycle.
10 Standup Comic. I can be pretty funny, for as long as there’s no alcohol, sex, or green jokes involved. Isn’t it time we had a clean, straight, decent Filipino comedian?
11 Theater Actor. Hey, believe you me, I can do it. You want me to sing? Dance? Whatever you want, baby, I’ll do it (ix-nay on nudity, swearing and smoking onstage). Dream role: Lefou in Beauty and the Beast.
12 Clown. I love kids. It’d be so cool to be on a TV show for kids, like Sesame Street.

And finally…
13 Missionary. I claim this in Jesus’ name. Someday, Lord, someday. πŸ™‚
