They pretty much shaped my early gay life

Pre-Spice Girls:


Sailormoon
- In gradeschool, by default, I was Sailormoon
- Remember Laser Quest in Megamall? I would write down my name as "Bunny Tsukino"
- I collected comic books, cards and toys that I used to decorate my locker like a shrine
- Mom would send me recorded episodes from Japan


Miss Universe 1994
- I was Miss Colombia
- I had recorded the whole show in cassette and would play it in my Walkman during breaks over and over
- I could perform the entire show (with Q&A's)
- We would do the parade of nations during P.E. classes
- Bought photos of all the candidates in Recto


Thalia
- Mari Mar is the only soap I watched from start to end (and with passion)
- I dreamed of getting one set of my ribs chopped off
- I died when she sang 'Nandito Ako"
- I died when I didn't get to watch her at Araneta because I was too young then
- I watched Mari Mar the movie
- I had two of her albums and had memorized some songs


Clueless
- My ultimate chick flick
- "As if" was our "queme" or "charot" back then
- I used to daydream that I was Cher (Alicia Silverstone)
- Named my hamsters Cher and Josh
- The feathered ballpen was a must-have


X-men
- I collected comic books and those Flair cards
- I had a signed issue #1 of X-men Blue Team
- We would play X-Men during P.E. classes. I was either Psylocke, Storm or Jean Grey
- Friday nights were never the same. We had a song for that actually - tune of Jollibee's 'I love you Sabado'
- Gambit and Havoc were my crushes
- Also loved Marvel's Infinity Crusade
