Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

When you’ve been single since birth, you learn certain things. Loneliness actually does not kill; it’s despair you should watch out for. Adjust. Happiness is both a state and an active pursuit, but to make it a goal unto itself is selfish. The importance of the Many often—but not always, and not automatically—outweigh the importance of the One. The value of your family and friends becomes more apparent. And your best friend is also your most benevolent worst enemy because you actually mean well to yourself.

@STAN: Thanks. By the way, I think you read an earlier version of this particular episode. I actually revised it twice already (the beauty of blogs... you can edit and re-edit it anytime). But my message remains the same, really.

Amen to that McVie!

By the way it was just yesterday that I've listened to your podcasts and I enjoyed it! I do hope to hear more Fabcasts soon. Kudos!

Hi McVie -

One thing I realized before my partner was that being single need not be cursed. It should be savored for the particular benefits it accords one. Di ito ma-realize siguro ng iba kaya medyo lurkey sila sa pagiging single.

Anyway, I enjoyed the posting and the preceding one - jusme, "Wonder-WOW"? Ahente kaya siya nung videoke brand?? c",)

@MIGS: Ang nagagawa naman talaga ng kasiyahan, noh? Gusto mong ibahagi sa iba ang nadarama mong tuwa't galak, hahaha! Seriously, thanks. Pero afraid yata ako sa "itumba" portion, hehehe.

@MIKKOI: More Fabcasts to come, pramis.

@HOMERIC29: Hindi siya ahente ng videoke brand. GUSTO at SANAY lang siya gumamit ng mike, hahaha!
