So Sorry

You would think I have died. You would be wrong.

Actually, this blog is a kind of indicator how busy my life my is. If I'm blogging everyday (or God help me, twice a day) that either means I'm a loser who doesn't have a life, or I'm warming up for some real writing. Lately things had piled up right up to my nostrils that I could barely breathe. But I committed to those things so I had to do them.

Last week we finally went live with LoFi 3, and it was a success. I couldn't have done it without my Sensual People on Call who wrote great articles and took amazing pictures. Although, I have to say, the layout was a major factor. Thank you Scarecrow for being your artsy self. We can now all breathe. (Email me for the username and password, because it's R-18.)

Now what else? I know a lot had happened but I can't remember all of them. Oh yeah, the voices inside my head were temporarily silenced by my senseless one-liners over at Plurk, that orange box you see at my sidebar, which I know some people totally hate. Well, I don't care. But I agree with them about my template though, this is indeed boring and old. I'm on it.

About the writing, when I started blogging I never aimed to win any writing awards with this. It was an outlet, a sort of therapy when my brain goes on overload. It was also practice for real writing, a warm-up bench before they give me the 100 lb. barbell. I can put in as many fillers and fluff as I want; I'm saving the real writing for print. And I have come to accept that I'll never be truly and fully passionate about politics, religion, the environment, or the knee-deep shit the country is in right now. My talent lies elsewhere.

I'm not apologizing for any of it, but fuckit I will not write about pancit.

Wishing and Hoping

Dear beach gods,

Please let me see this in real life, on this weekend preferably, because my horoscope said I will find love if I take trips near bodies of water.

It's kinda urgent because Fifi's horoscope said she's getting engaged this month and mine just says I'll find my true love, and while I'm all for true love that lasts forever, a wedding is still way up there, so I'm hoping you will also send Dennis Trillo to the same place on the same weekend. Dennis Trillo trumps Clown Boy, anytime.

Thank you.
