I am into a craze. You may call it blogging bugs. Aren’t you into it, too?
Lest I’d be haunted with the anino ni abaniko, I try to bloghop more often than not, equipped with some notes from the peanut gallery, with a glimpse of the steadfast x-pat files, and sometimes with a thought of carrying it out with bonete y cafe. Coffee is one addiction that I cannot do without, you know. But I am not the coffee goddess.
Staring at the bughaw skies, or at the cream-colored or tinged-with- gray ceiling, or simply working under the canopy, with a slip of the pen, I write. Starting with Dear Sage… oops… I forgot, I am not writing a letter for Sage. I am trying to create a scenario out of simple thoughts.
Sometimes I find myself wondering what goes inside the mind of a single guy. How many times was he faced with the crimson crux of deciding to stay single forever? (Just asking, not prying ) It must be enjoyable whirling alone like a fish in a bowl, or as Gibbs Cadiz hinted, is it a boring life? Maybe he was pleased and stuck on the dictum cogito ergo sam, or was it cogito cogito ergo cogito sum.
I ponder mga turo ni tito rolly, or mga kuro-kuro ni ka uro, and tiyo delyo’s kalambogesiyons at iba pa and ended mixed up! Seriously, these guys give you the comfort of home sweet home in its real sense. A visit to their place is like solace from a journey to Honeyville, like a warm reception from the balay ni Bambit, and also like the sundry atmosphere at ménage à Kat.
Punzi’s corner is one corner I visit when I need to educate myself with law-related things. And when my eyes ache from the letters, phrases and quotation marks, i feast my eyes with the goodies at Sidney’s sari-sari store. You want to feel makabayan? Go visit My EPinoy’s blog. You want to go gaga about kikay effects? Then read Gigi as she goes gaga about beauty tips with side dishes of quirky inspirations. I wonder if she had written about the G spot (*smirk). The J spot is altogether a different thing, of course.
When the citizen on Mars defends divergent poles in the parallel universe of politics, he makes you feel you are not in the warped zone of the political arena. How can he be so updated and interested of world events and issues I chose to elude? Well, every one to his taste. Take for example, how Artkitekto indulges himself with the football league championship, or the Filipino librarian with the newest technology in library science, or the special education teacher in Washington DC also with her newest teaching and technology discoveries. Need more? Everybody knows how pinayexpat in Deutschland, and some others make it big by problogging. But by jove! I love to be a sunshine pinay, too!
And I say to someone… wish you were here. Wish it was like yesterday.
