Lazy Blogging

Argh! I hate the way I’m blogging these days. Browsing through my archives, I realized that I used to have so much passion writing how I feel or think, even how nonsensical my feelings or thoughts are. These days, my posts are limited to just documenting happy memories. Just that! Must be because re-reading about happy days can be a stress reliever on my part but still, I’m aware that just like mainstream teenyboppers, my entries are becoming very predictable. Formulaic, to borrow every critic’s equally hackneyed term. The formula would be that I post a picture, describe what happened during the day that picture was taken, and kablag (heh!), I have a blog entry! How creative! :) So yes, this entry is no different.


Back in 2003, I used to be a big Survivor fanatic. Joined this fantasy game in PEX where the game is simulated and being a true reality geek, had a blast playing the game with complete strangers. While the game took some evil turns (I for one backstabbed and betrayed supposed allies just to reach the Final 2 spot where I was eventually beaten by Dude, grrrr!), the beauty about the game is that I got to know co-Survivor addicts, most of which became my friends even up to now. (Yes, Nethrow, you included! Heh! :D) That’s why, I was pleasantly surprised when Bodiemon, one of my allies during the game texted me a few weeks ago telling me he’s in the metro for vacation. (He's based in Canada.) I was busy with work that time but I just couldn’t let the chance to be with a fellow Survivor geek pass. And so we met and I’m glad I did because I truly had fun talking about the game with him in person. Besides, he treated me to dinner and gave me two imported tees as "pasalubong". LOL! :) So it might be a ‘lil late already to give thanks but yes, thank you buddy and we shall meet again.


Also had fun (I told you this entry is about the rare moments I’m actually having fun, right?! :D) last Saturday in Blue Saffron’s music video shoot of Star in A Million’s Johann Escanan’s carrier single “After All”. Again, I played the mighty role of an “extra” (just like in April Boy Regino’s music video last year.) Haha! :) Did it for the love of Blue Saffron! Even became the crowd director pro bono! It’s all fine though because the shoot got me reacquainted with former workmates like Rachelle (Johann’s leading lady in the music video and my Star Cinema 2000 batchmate) and Ike (the music vid’s lighting director whom I also got to work with in All My Life). As for Johann, he’s a cool kid. A “bisdak” like me so will support him definitely. Go “bisdaks”!


Right after the shoot, had an impromptu gimmick with the staff of “the youth show.” Kuya Henry, Hero’s bro, was with us so it was more fun (especially since the drinks were on him). Haha! :) Screamed my lungs out (again!) belting my usual repertoire of Masculados and Parokya (haha! :D) but definitely, I was mediocre compared to our AP Ritchie who can give all those “Doble Kara” contestants a run for their money. LOL at “Doble Kara”! Jologs 80’s! Hahaha :)

Ted, ano ba 'yan?! Kahit sa blogging you put pressure on yourself?! Hay, naku...

At least you've already found your "blogging voice"... other people have to struggle for years to even figure out what they want to say, much less how they want to say it.

Anyway, as always -- love the pics, had fun reading... so glad you've got a new post. :)
