A hobby you have
–noun, plural -bies.
An activity or interest pursued outside one's regular occupation and engaged in primarily for pleasure.an activity or interest pursued for pleasure or relaxation and not as a main occupation
By definition, that is hobby to you. But ever since the gay “lingo” emerged here in the Philippines, the word “hobby” has taken on a whole new meaning, well at least to me. I call something a hobby when I do it every effin time, like a habit. Exactly, the supposedly special “leisure pursuit” becomes not-so special to me because I use it as a synonym of habit. I use it as an expression too. Like “gawin mong hobby ang maging late” or “hobby ko na umupo ng naka-indian seat sa swivel chair” haha.. you get the point, don’t you? So for me to point out one “hobby” I have, that would be plain boring *plus, except blogging, there really is no other active hobby-by-definition that I enjoy doing these days*. So I’m gonna share with you the ten “hobbies” that are on top of my mind right now.
1) Checking, before going all the way up, if there are cockroaches on my way to the mezzanine of our house, which is also my room.
2) Logging in to Facebook, Blogger, Twitter, Gmail in that same order everytime I go online at home.
3) Forgetting things I would like to say just before I was about to say them.
4) Procrastinating >=)
5) Eavesdropping >=)
6) Singing what ever is on in my cellphone’s music player out loud upon entering our house’s doorstep.
7) Nilulukot ang mukha while facing the computer at work *while working, of course* (this one’s not done purposefully, a colleague just noticed.. haha!)
8) Sumimangot (the tagalog word seemed more descriptive). Yes, I’m nakasimangot while walking, while watching something, while reading, while sleeping, while doing anything. This, too, is not being done with a purpose, people around me just noticed. Haha! And I can’t help it! I don’t know how to erase the simangot on my face!
9) Sleeping >=)
10) Collecting five and ten peso coins. Oh and malulutong na 100 peso bills too! $_$
