what the hell is going on?!
last night, my digital camera fell from my table. the LCD is shattered from the inside. i’ve always been extremely careful with it, but for some reason it fell as i shuffled some things on my desk. i wasn’t too happy, really. so that’s it huh, take care of something and it just breaks on a whim. so i drove off to makati to have it fixed today and afterwards on the way to seattles best coffee where i was supposed to work on design stuff, the car i was driving died after two hours plowing through metro traffic. how convenient, eh? the cops come, and tell me that there’s a new ordinance that makes it illegal to keep a stalled car in the middle of EDSA. great. they say i need to get it towed.
anyway, i didn’t want to get into the nuances of their system. if i had it towed, i needed to cough up 1,500php (30usd, but thats a princely sum especially when you’re unemployed budgeting on allowance). they didn’t give me too much trouble though, cos this other guy who claimed to be working for the MMDA also was butting into their business. apparently the guy was drunk. so they “tow” my car 50 meters to the MMDA station underneath the overpass, and a mechanic comes to switch the dead battery. i gave them 600php for merienda.
you gotta love the philippines. what i don’t understand is the string of badluck that’s been hounding me lately. tomorrow i’m expecting to get shot, robbed, or total the car. but then again, GP the bastard is coming to visit me in manila. he has pictures of his trip from boracay. i guess that’s my punishment later on during the day. *siigh*
my thinkpad’s battery shorted out. it needs to be replaced ($$$). i’m terribly upset and annoyed beyond reason. well, i think its my fault to begin with anyway- i took the battery out for a few weeks cos i was worried that being constantly plugged would eventually kill it. lo and behold, i got the very thing i was trying to avoid! why does this shit happen?! and i’m pissed at those new centrino laptops.. 6 hours of battery life.. intergrated wireless.. *siigh*. we’ll all forever be obsolete. what a sham!
hi, my name is lovine, and i think i’m blind.
i’ve just received word that albert, the asian doug, is rushing for ADG (alpha delta gamma). who the hell would’ve thunk!? the 5th year super senior taking up another major in accounting.. our very own chinny chinitos, rushing for ADG?! and i heard that everyone liked him. not that there’s something wrong with people liking albert.. its just… weird. he’s one damn peculiar character (and hence my friend). the world is just turning upside down, brah. you’ll know if you knew albert. actually if i had another year at loyola, i would’ve totally rushed for ADG. that’s whats disturbing about the whole thing. i’ve also wanted to get an accounting degree. is albert my idol? … ah shiiit.
for some more normal developments, i heard that the rumors about andrea making out with her co-worker in the bathroom are apparently more than mere hearsay! cheers to the quest for truth, justice, and andrea’s way of scoring boys!! yay!!
i am in shock!! for the sake of curtailing gossip i shall omit the details so bear with me and my mysteries. but what’s the point in having a blog if i can’t talk about how i feel re: finding out that one of my friends is getting married?! i almost shat my pants!! i’m totally stoked, but what bothers me is what, have i been living under a rock?! am i in a fucking time-space-warp?! this is just plain strange. funny thing is, all of this was to be expected anyway. for some reason that’s what makes it even more surprising!! all these major things going on under my nose yet outside my head! i don’t know about these kinds of jack-in-the-boxes.. when the rug is pulled from underneath you, you end up banging your head against the floor and getting concussions and possibly head trauma. now if you see me confused lately, you’ll understand.. but most probably you wouldn’t. maybe everyone i know is just growing up except for me and peter pan. oh, and other immature boys like me :)
ich vermisse deutscheland! ich vermisse meine freunde nach deutscheland. tut mir leid, meine deutsche ist nicht so gut. ich versuche. ich hoffe daß besuche ich nach bonn, es ist macht spaß! trinken wir? es ist wichtig in leben daß wir machen spaß. prost! :D
citibank called me this morning to schedule an interview.. tomorrow morning? are they crazy? idiot me wokeup with their 5pm phone call, just to give you an idea of how screwed up my biological clock is. since i was groggy and had no clue what was going on, i agreed. agh. i wonder how it’ll go. i haven’t done this in awhile; the last two interviews i had for internships ended miserably in an unemployed lovine. however, the biggest problem is that i have no clothes at all, i left my slacks and leather shoes in the states. goodness. thank god vic let me borrow his slacks, we’re about the same size. hey i just thought, it would suck to have this problem in the states.. i can’t even BUY clothes that fit!
