“Blogs get people into trouble.”

“Blogs get people into trouble.”

Greetings and salutations.

Ten years ago, I had my first blog over at Diaryland. (Don’t laugh.) It was partly political in nature and it got me into a bit of trouble. After a year I deleted it. My new motto became “blogs get people into trouble.”

The lesson was not well-learned, however, and five years later I started another blog over at Multiply. Most of my friends used that site and I was feeling left out. (Yes, Multiply. It was 2007, after all.) I didn’t get into any trouble over there and I actually enjoyed myself.

It’s 2012 now. A lot of social media sites have come and gone, and I’m looking for something more permanent. Since recycling is good, I’m re-using my old blog name for WordPress purposes. There’s nothing like having a bit of continuity, right?

In case you’re wondering why I’m attached to such a silly user name, my sister Auey gave “Lucky Parking Girl” to me years ago. She used to call it my secret superhero identity. When we lived in Manila, she swore she found the best parking spaces when I was in the passenger seat. Like all super powers, it also has a weakness: it doesn’t work when I’m the one driving.

Arguably, it is the second most useless super power in the world.

    • Hey Kaya! <3 Oh God. You know, when I first wrote that post, I was dead sure I knew what the most useless superpower in the world was. Now I can’t remember! Maybe it’s the power to summon dust mites? Plucking nose hairs at the speed of light? X-ray vision?
