Thanks or no thanks to blogging

Thanks or no thanks to blogging:

  • At the office I am busy busy busy. Between blogging and bookwriting (my real work at the moment), there's no time to lunch (better than Southbeach), gossip (keeps me away from sin), whine (that was one thing I used to do very efficiently). In other words, blogging makes me more -- ahem -- sublime.
  • At home, kids are happier. They ask permission to go out in the middle of a blog: I shoo them away. They ask for money in the middle of replying to a comment: I say -- "go get my wallet, take it - take it -- and get outta here."
  • I am called -- refreshingly -- a freshie, a newbie by my blogging berks (for the unhip, that's barkada!). Only in this blog-a-day world!
  • As a blogger, I have been described -- for a change -- as bubbly, perky, funny, quirky. Now, if they only knew the offline dullard that's me!
  • Retirement seems tolerable, even palatable.

There, Pining, don't make hinaing. Short and straight answers in honor of your meme. (Actually, I have to cook sinaing and press some clothes. Sus, nabisto tuloy -- still a maid of honor!)

Now let me pass this meme on to -- let's see --

Noemi (I hope she hasn't been tagged yet!

Kate (why can't I access your blog?)

Sexy Mom (Hwag madala ha?)

Won't breathe till you tell us: five things that happened to you because of blogging.!

Well, anna, your blogs and style refresh. Its refreshing to meet people who laugh loudest when the joke's on them. Your pieces come across saying "don't take me seriously." right?

annamanila said...

Dimaks!

I can't have too much bills in my wallet. Am always broke. But thanks for the concern. LOL

Quint!

I am appalled that you don't take me seriously. You can't possibly see my tongue saying "bleeh" to my cheek.

Hello anna :) Toe is right...you are funny...

btw lol @ #2

rhodora said...

Hi, Anna! I have done the meme. Unfortunately, my comments still don't work, so for any feedback from you, just please post it here for me. Thanks!

Toe said...

I wish that when I was a kid, my Mom knew how to blog. :)

annamanila said...

Vernaloo! In real life, I try to be funny but end up corny -- at least according to my daughters. (And if you have daughters like that, what do you need daughters-in-law for? Joke)

Fortunately, when one is online, one gets to edit and re-edit the corn so they end up chippy. (Ay .. now you will agree with my daughters na)

You know what .. I feel I half know you already from Toe and Prab's sites. Expect some1 to post corny comments in urs -- soon. And thats a threat .. not a promise.

Rhodora! Can't wait to read what secrets you uncovered. Shock me?! And sorry di pa rin ako marunong mag-blogroll. Sige, hop na ako sa site mo.

annamanila said...

Rhodora! Well done! You were bolder and more open than I thought you would be. And you bared in style. Inspired? LOL Will post a longer, more honest-to-goodness comment when your site allows it. That was a real bummer ha .. how did it happen.

Asawari said...

thank goodness i dont go all sublime when i blog! else i would b broke n too happy to b a lawyer by now :D

nice style, keep writing.........

annamanila said...

Asawari! Yup, I knew I won't get rich blogging. But see how it keeps the peace in the family?!

A lawyer! Hmmm .. law and sublimity are oxymoronic Just kidding. Blame it on those lawyer jokes they deluge the public with.

Was trying to reach ur site but couldnt. Wil try again.

take it! take it! same here - the kids must be wishing that their moms should have blogged long time ago.

anyway, i sent a comment earlier, something must have gone wrong. it was not posted.

also, please tell Rhodora, my comment to her has been treated as spam. i tagged her for a meme. happy hilarious weekend.

rhodora said...

Anna, I can now receive feedback/comments. I have figured out how to recover all incoming comments. So you can just leave comments, although after posting, you will still get a note from the Spam Eater. But that's okay, I can recover and read all anyway. Huwag na lang pansinin yung Spam Eater ko, KSP yun, e. hehehe.

I will do your meme this weekend. I'm excited to do it, kasi, last week, something happened. My daughter came to me with a very serious face, and handed me a list: "Things you haven't done yet because of blogging" LOL! Then I found out, wala na pala kaming sabon, shampoo, paper towels...!!!

rhodora said...

Oopss.. Ana, nagawa ko na pala yung meme mo.. hahaha! It's Niceheart's that I havent done yet. Gosh, I'm old! Ulyanin.:)

annamanila said...

Rhodora! See -- you got a lot of memes in ur hands now -- Dine and Niceheart's. Galing kong mag-bwena mano. And your daughter gave you a list of things u hadn't done because of blogging?! Uh-oh --another meme in the making?

Prab said...

After reading #2, makes me wanna ask if I can stay as a transient at your place, so that I can ask for money too.

*maniacal laughter*

Cheers to blogging making you sublime! :D

annamanila said...

Sexy Mom! And to you! :) And here's to kids always take-taking it.

Prab! Will let u know when there's a vacancy. My overstaying boarders must like it where they are.

pining said...

Hiya Anna :) Too right you are funny, he he. Have to get hold of your book one day then!
Sublime indeed!

Noemi said...

I finally did the meme. sorry it took forever!

annamanila said...

Noemi! Read it. Awesome! It's worth the wait.
