Hiatus, almost over.

I was signing up for a bloggers party last week. When the organizer asked me for the URL to my blog, I got nervous. I thought — Will he decline my entry into the guest list when he sees I haven’t written anything in almost a month? Thankfully, that kind of exclusivity wasn’t part of the event.

I attended the party, which turned out to be hosted by Playboy Philippines (!), took shots — pictures and alcohol, ogled the “chicks” like one of the guys, got a bottle of tequila for pimping myself, and took home a copy of Playboy magazine. There was no doubt that I enjoyed the night… Even though I ended the night feeling a little more male than female. It was a little worrisome, what with the whole questioning-my-actual-gender  issue, but really, not a bad night at all.

I wanted the bunny ears but they wouldnt lend it to me. :(

I went home thinking that I don’t want to ever have to second-guess myself again. Not about my gender! I mean, my blogging skillz. I want to be able to tell someone I’m a writer and a blogger without having to follow that statement with a “but.”

I may not blog as much as I used to or as much as I want to, but the words are in my head. The problem is, they seem to be hell bent on staying there.

My life lately has been a whirlwind of everything. I’ve gone emo, I’ve gone rock and roll, hell, I’ve even gone a bit pop and R&B. Everything everyday was an anecdote in the making. It’s not for lack of material I can’t write, it’s for lack of… concentration. And fuckin’ inspiration.

I hate it when people write about writing. But here, that’s what I’m doing right now, in lieu of a legal contract. I’m putting it in black and white, folks — I will get back to regular blogging soon. 

One day, very soon, I say, I will welcome inspiration. And if it doesn’t come naturally, I will take it by the balls and drag it, screaming and flailing, and squeeze it back into my pen and paper.

Also, that bunny in the red suit was cute.



  1. I kinda liked that girl in the black bunny suit more but to each his (or, in your case, her) own. it was great catching you guys there at last. ;)

    “Also, that bunny in the red suit was cute.” – I like the one in black better.

    Scarce well-written updates are way better than an update every other hour detailing how awesome the roast beef sammich is.

  7. The one without the bunny ears is the cutest. :)
