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.

Oh Who Am I Kidding?!

Okay so I lied. I’m still depressed. Actually I’m somewhere between minor denial (I try not to think about it) and a mixed state of worry (where will I get the money to repair the doors and replace all the lost stuff?), anger (mostly directed at myself), and despair (why me? what have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?), all in-flux and shifting. Savory Chicken was just a delicious distraction. Even a trip to SM Mall of Asia provided an answer to one of those Questions That Never Occurred To You To Ask: “How does Jollibee travel down the escalator?”

Shet. Fuck. Argh. I still feel violated up to now.

Call if you need to vent some more. Or anything really.

BAKLANG AJ: Mukha ngang nawindang ever ang bagets. Parang hindi ma-comprehend ng musmos na mind niya, "Bakit si Jollibee nakaupo sa sahig? Di ba bawal yun, sabi ni Daddy?"

LEIGH: Thanks for the offer. I am venting right here. But I do need something--my bag and its contents back. Blah.

When we came back from Mexico, I noticed that the zipper of my backpack was open... Ang punyetang Mexican bag handler dinekwat ang dalawang sunglasses namin ni Norm! Buwisit na buwisit ako nun!

Buti na lang cheap yung mga sunglasses... Hindi nila nadekwat yung mas mamahaling shades (Prada at Maui Jim)....

I still haven't let go of that incident... azar pa rin ako sa sarili ko, at sa punyetang magnanakaw na yun... There's something your property being violated that you just can't easily let go.... *big hugs*

Im sending bad karma vibes to whoever stole your precious bag (and its contents).

Why was I picked out to be the victim? Nang na-mug ako at sinuntok, I felt violated. It took awhile before I got over being angry at myself and feeling safe again. I can just imagine what rape victims at battered partners go through. Hay naku, the only consolation is that I took out most of my money from my wallet!

So I went from one extreme to another: dala ko ang tanang paper trail ng buhay ko sa bag to now I only carry what I need for the day.

Joel, ano ipa-barang or pa-usikan ba natin sa Siquijor ang magnanakaw?
take care

DATS: Hahaha! Yup, Jollibee actually made me forget I was supposed to be depressed that day. Friggin' cute little bastard! It's the little absurd details that brighten up any day.
