If last Sunday was an indication of the year to come, then it sure will be an unfortunate event one after the other.
Unfortunate event #1: Last Sunday was the baptism of my cousin’s daughter. I was going to be one of her godmothers, so I asked LOMU to sleep over and accompany me to the church because the rest of my family will be sleeping in and will only attend the reception.
Guess what. I overslept! Granted, it was my fault since I slept at 6 in the morning, but I really thought my desire and responsibility as a godmother would overpower my exhaustion. Oops.
Second, after eating a lot and taking a nap in my cousin’s house (I’m an awful godmother haha!), LOMU and I decided to go to Robinson’s Galleria. He’d already completed the stickers for the Starbucks planner he was going to give his older sister, and we’ve been visiting nearby branches in search of an oak or cherry planner, but to no avail. Since Galleria was close to my cousin’s house, we decided we’d give their Starbucks branch a try. And since I still had some leftover money from my last paycheck, I decided that I was going to buy something pretty for myself, since I haven’t done so in ages. What is this pretty thing you might ask? A purple Swatch. Of course.
Unfortunate event #2: Off we went to Starbucks. At first the barista said they still had the spruce planner, which would’ve been all right since LOMU’s sister wanted a planner in one of the darker shades, but when the barista came back he said that like the other branches we went to, they only had the bamboo and poplar ones. So we gave in to a poplar planner.
Unfortunate event #3: There was no Swatch store in Galleria, so we headed to Digital Hub because I was planning to buy a hard shell case for Panda instead.
Okay, first a little background: As I was saving up for Panda, I already pictured a purple shell for him. One that I can bastardize, because since I have a history of scratching my gadgets, I didn’t want Panda to suffer the same fate. The problem was, when I got Panda, I found out that there aren’t a lot of brands to choose from. And all of them were in various shades of purple, none of which I liked.
Anyway, going back. I found a lot of Speck cases, but I still wasn’t sold on buying one, so I told LOMU if we could head on over to Megamall to see if they had a Swatch store there.
As we were about to go out, LOMU stopped me and pointed to a row of headphones. I almost died, because I saw an R2-D2 and a Darth Vader Coloud headphone.
Another background: I’ve been eyeing the Star Wars Coloud headphones for a few months now, and last Christmas, I finally got one courtesy of LOMU’s Christmas gift. Unfortunately, the kind he gave me was my third choice: the Lightspeed ones. I originally wanted the R2-D2 or the Darth Vader, but the three Power Mac Centers we went to only had the Lightspeed, Boba Fett and Rebel Alliance ones.
YUN PALA ANDUN LANG SA DIGITAL HUB! ARGH!
Unfortunate event #3: We got to Megamall and there was a Swatch store there, but they didn’t have the kind of watch I wanted. WHYYYYYYYY.
Unfortunate event #4: I was itching to spend the money in my wallet so I dragged LOMU to the Power Mac Center, prepared to spend my dough on a Speck hard shell case in Aubergine. But lo and behold, they didn’t have the color!
Unfortunate event #5: As we walked out of the store, I felt something iffy going on with my feet. I looked down and found the soles of my shoes detached from the rest of the shoes, all thanks to the rain. So I did spend some of my money, to one hundred something slippers.
So, in lieu of the weirdest day I’ve had so far, let me recap the highlights and lowlights of the past week.
The Year so far:
*spent a so-so New Year, made bleak by the fact that my dad was hit with a stray “kwitis.” Sure, the wounds were shallow but what a way to welcome the New Year, huh.
*had an upset stomach in the days that followed (I’ve just recently recovered)
*reunited with my childhood friends and got drunk to the amount of P11,660
I FINALLY GOT MY HANSON SHOUT IT OUT WORLD TOUR VIP TICKET!!!!!! AND I’M GOING WITH MY TWIN!!!!!!!
Woohoo, I can’t wait for March 30!!!!!
