i was LMAO reading and remembering this:

A Jewish lady named Mrs. Rosenberg many years ago was stranded late one night at a fashionable resort - one that did not admit Jews. The desk clerk looked down at his book and said, "Sorry, no room. The hotel is full."
      The Jewish lady said, "But your sign says that you have vacancies."
      The desk clerk stammered and then said curtly, "You know that we do not admit Jews. Now if you will try the other side of town..."
      Mrs. Rosenberg stiffened noticeable and said, "I'll have you know I converted to your religion."
      The desk clerk said, "Oh, yeah, let me give you a little test. How was Jesus born?"
      Mrs. Rosenberg replied, "He was born to a virgin named Mary in a little town called Bethlehem."
      "Very good," replied the hotel clerk. "Tell me more."
      Mrs. Rosenberg replied, "He was born in a manger."
       "That's right," said the hotel clerk. "And why was he born in a manger?"
      Mrs. Rosenberg said loudly, "Because a jerk like you in the hotel wouldn't give a Jewish lady a room for the night!"

i was right- UGAT rocked!

in celebration of the glorious decades in pinoy music history, great pinoy folk rock artists performed together for the first time in a one-night concert dubbed ugat: ang himig natin

the concert, (december 3rd at the araneta coliseum) featured the juan dela cruz band (mike hanopol, pepe smith, wally gonzales), lolita carbon of asin, sampaguita, heber bartolome (and banyuhay), and florante (certified pasimpleng comic-walang kupas). 

manong gary granada and noel cabangon (to my delight) were also there. as mike hanopol puts it : "one of the great things that we have to do is to make sure that when we fade out, we will be able to pass the great music that we had then to the next generation". here's their opening medley [thanks to iamwalrus] . 

these pinoy icons performed their signature hits - himig natin, bonggahan, laguna, masdan mo ang kapaligiran, pagbabalik, itanong mo sa mga bata, tayo'y mga pinoy, nena, handog, mabuti pa sila, kahit konti, kanlungan, and titser's enemi#1 among others. they really rocked the big dome with audience (us included!) dancing and singing with them all throughout. 

surely, that was a night i'd forever cherish!
