I’m one of those people who live a pretty laid-back lifestyle. I don’t take everything too seriously — but that doesn’t mean that I can’t because I can. I guess I’m just saying that it would take a lot to ruffle my feathers and I take pleasure in simple things. Heehee.

I’m guilty of not posting much lately. I can’t come up with a good enough reason — sorry. Heh.

But I’d like to enumerate the things that entertained me these past couple of weeks.

Gig Night. Shared a couple of beers with Rico at 1740 Bistro to hear my friends play. Finally a gig that’s not in Tagaytay! Hahaha. Though, I would’ve enjoyed the roadtrip. Anyway, it has become a ritual that every new friend goes through — sort of like an initiation — meeting these 4 guys [Ram, Joey, Joel and Oliver] of Streamline. Don’t ask why. I’m not telling. Hehehe.

DVD Marathons. Note: emphasis on it being plural. I actually finished 2 seasons of Grey’s Anatomy and 7 seasons of Sex and the City. I’m now on the first season of The OC. I’m keeping my mind off blogging for a bit. Don’t hate me. Hahaha.

Photography. I had the opportunity to do a lot of it over the weekend. It was a bit challenging since I was expected to cover an actual event — a kid’s birthday party. Heehee. But it certainly felt good getting behind the camera once again. Plus the fact that a friend said that he didn’t realise that I was actually really good at it [he got it wrong perhaps? Hahaha.] and went on to ask for pointers. I was so flattered. Hahaha.

Dicovery Channel’s RIDES. I caught the episode, Foose’s 69 where they worked on a Chip Foose-designed 1969 Camaro. I saw a lot of Mustangs like the Eleanor [seen in the movie, Gone in 60 Seconds], Shelby G.T. 350 [my dream car] and the amazing Shelby G.T. 350R [the exact car that Joe Johnson drove].

Random Quote Javascript. Adding it on one of my blogs is a cause for a small celebration. Hahaha. I’ve been wanting to do that for ages.

Driving. I’ve been driving a lot recently, ergo, I’m now NOT cooped up in my house most of the time. It always brings me comfort when I’m behind the wheel. It’ll always be one of my favourite things to do. AND getting to drive a BMW 540 Automatic was certainly a real treat! It was the highlight of my week. Hahaha.

More on cars. Getting a call from a friend [you know who you are. hehe.] to ask for my help cuz his car wouldn’t start. I wanted to laugh at the ludicrous-ness of the situation cuz never in a million years did I expect that a guy would call me about a car problem. Btw, my instructions did help start the car. So — am I good or what? Hahaha. 😉

Of course, writing will be a staple thing and will always be a source of entertainment in my book. So, what about you? What are the simple things you do that brings you pleasure and/or entertainment? 🙂

1. Rico - 5 September 2006

Hey!!! When did you get to drive the Beemer? Btw, the feeds on your sidebar ain’t workin.

I’ve told you this before: American Muscle’s raw power doesn’t suit my taste. I find sleek styling better than the in-your-face profile of Detroit.

Rico: Saturday, when I was with Raissa at Menlo Park. We just went cruising.

Your point is? Cuz I didn’t write about them muscle cars for you anyway. I know that all you know about cars is driving them and nothing else. Hahaha. 😉

3. Jonas - 8 September 2006

Welcome back! I was wondering what happened to you. 🙂

4. theparody - 8 September 2006

Jonas: Thanks! Good to know that I was missed. Hehehe. 😉 It’s good to be back. 🙂

5. Rico - 11 September 2006

Did I say you wrote about that for me? 😛 Sorry, am not the stuck-up you think I am… and I see your feeds are now working.

6. theparody - 11 September 2006

Rico: I’m just being my “antipatika” self. Heehee. No, I don’t think you’re stuck up… just self-absorbed. Hahaha. 😉

Yea, I decided to fix it since I know I can benefit from it naman e. Was just too lazy lang. Bad, eh? Heehee.
