Irene is practically family to me. We met because our boyfriends are related and since we are Filipinos, the family just tend to spend a lot of time together. It didn’t take us long to immediately become good friends since we share the same sense of humor (she’s super funny, you guys) and life sensibilities. When it comes down to it: I freakin’ love, Irene! I wanted to share her to the world because she is a badass Lady Geek. Don’t let her pretty little face fool you. I am fairly sure she won’t hesitate to kick ass if needed.
When did you realize you were a Lady Geek?
IRENE ALLADO: When I was a kid, I played with Barbies, stuffed animals, Match Boxes, Legos, scented stationeries, G.I. Joes, Nintendo and other video games. Not being able to play with other kids, I was home most of the time and being an only girl got me to make up a fantasy world with my dolls and my brotherâ€™s toys. I would also put my bed sheets and party dresses together and would imagine I was a princess, a ninja or a non-ordinary girl. I believe that was the first time I touched base with role playing.
Every Thursday I get together with my girls and we spend an evening eating local cuisine (aka borderline fast food) and watching Season 9 of Project Runway on Lifetime. We aren’t fashion designers but just like with any other trade, you don’t need to be neck-deep in it to know how to bitch about it.
And this week we had plenty to bitch about because this week’s challenge was so ridiculously stupid.
*SPOILERS FOR EPISODE 3 *
This week’s challenge is to design clothing for professionalÂ stiltwalkers. The runway show for this episode was held in Battery Park -the first runway show to be held outside.
The designers were put into teams of two and were given a budget of $500 and one day to complete their garments. Ouch.
In the age of incessant sequels, prequels, and reboots, there is one sequel that I am very much looking forward to.
That, my friends, is A Very Harold and Kumar Christmas in 3D.
Yes. Kumar and Roldy are back, and this time they’re in a real pickle. Harold accidentally shoots Santa in the face, they accidentally burn down Harold’s father-in-law’s prized Christmas tree, and Neil Patrick Harris is causing shenanigans in Heaven. Yes, the return of NPH!
I wish I could say I’m an amazing photographer and intentionally wanted her sword to flash like that. Let’s just say I am.
Who ya gonna call??
