...I Hate Mondays

System Time: 10:23 AM

I feel shitty. It's Monday. Do I need to elaborate? /me patugtog ng I Hate Mondays by the Boomtown Rats. first, i was woken up by my Dad at 4am (yes, 4 am) this morning, telling me we need to leave at 5am because my sister has an interview at the US Embassy. Ihahatid naman daw nya kami sa Makati. and we can sleep en route at the car. So with the starex at mind, i begrudgingly said ok..and then i attempted to get up and i couldn't. WTF? I hurt in places i never thought any muscle existed. back of my thighs, arms, back. I was thinking.. I didn't have sex right? Why does my body hurttttt??! lol. Then i remembered the culprit. It must've been the damn frisbee we played with yesterday at the cemetery. My exercise-phobic body cannot handle 1 hour of using all of my body parts. and it must've been my cousin's 'leftist' wrist where i had to pick the friggin frisbee up everytime she throws it to me. *sakal Nina* napagod lang ako kakapulot. So anyway, I still had my shower. Nung matapos na ako magbihis, i went out of the house and stopped short at the sight of the pickup. I was thinking.. bakit itoooo ang dadalhin? this was like riding a horse and can you sleep while riding a horse? I don't think so. Anyway, i very diplomatically went in and tried to be as comfortable as I could and closed my eyes. Then when we were at Katipunan, ayun na. nagkaloko-loko na. Meh topaks yung clutch, ayaw pumasok yung gears. TAbi si daddy. tapos meh inaadjust siya dun sa clutch. Whatever that is. So we did these every couple of kilometers. About 10 times. nagreklamo na ako. "Bakit ito dinala naten!?" then tumahimik na ako dhel meh sugat na si daddy kakakalikot nya dun sa clutch. wawa. Ayaw na nung clutch at Quezon Ave. Told ate Ging magtaxi na siya. So they waited for a taxi while daddy tried fixing it. (to no avail) I even had to ask for an alambre keh manong guard dahil naghahanap ng alambre si daddy. Kinuha ko yung alambre ng halaman nila. hehehe. (Hey, the guard agreed) Then nakakuha na ng taxi si ate after 30 minutes. (Ano buh, bakit walang taxi sa Quezon Ave?!) Then I said, Wag ka na magmadali daddy, pwede na ako kahit anong oras. Then 7 am came and I said maybe you should go to Banawe and ask for help. Banawe was just one street away. after 15 minutes my Dad was back with 2 mechanics. 10 minutes later it was fixed. at 6 am pala , bukas na sila. Pinigilan kong mag "I told you so" keh Daddy kasi at least umaandar na kami. (Dad insisted wala pa daw kasing bukas ng ganoong kaaga) Tapos ang trapik sa buendia uh. 30 minutes kami dun. hay. and now I'm here blogging, sounding like a Brat.

I blame it all on Mondays.

Friday was better. Great, even. Jing, Kate and I went to Robinson and bought food we could cook and beer. Sleepover sila sa bahay namin ni Raymond. Yey! We had sisig na meh chicharon, korean bbq, liempo, pasta with garlic and crabstick (na lasang squidball) and salad. Hindi marunong maghiwa ng kamatis si Kate. lol. Oh, now she knows how. I didn't consume much of my beer, pero sila, uminom. Saya! hihihihi. My throat hurt 'cause I was talking too much. the next day the pasta tasted great (We concluded it was the garlic, it was sucked up by the pasta, finally). Tapos uwi na sila. *sad* I basically slept the whole day after they left.

Sunday was okay too. Mass, then our usual Don Hen kasi Father's Day.. oh, we bought a new phone for Daddy, chipipay lang, Samsung x160. at least hindi na siya 3230, hehe. Tapos loyola, and then the frisbee fiasco. Hindi pa fiasco nun, natuwa ako pramis. Kasi magaling ako magbato. hahaha. Daddy complained about his new phone when we got home. Ang hina daw ng message tone. Tapos bakit daw yung ibang contacts nya sa phonebook nawawala. took me 30 minutes to explain the wonders of saving on the Sim or on the Phone memory. In fairness, mahina nga talaga ang message tone. Gusto nyang papalitan. LOL. My gas, ang arte ni dad. Sabi ko i vibrate na lang nya lagi so still not sure kung papapalitan nya talaga. (Sana hindi na kasi, gusto nyang ipalit, yung Motorola L6, mas mahal yun ng 3k eh, lol!) Watched 2 Korean movies after that. Just have to add these in my observations:

Both movies I watched had the piggy back ride, bugbugan ng gang, and dun sa isa meh namatay sa sakit.

1. Laging meh nag-iinuman sa green thingie na bote.
2. Meh kinakain sila na fish cake ang pagkatranslate. (street food)

still love them. Anyway, that was my weekend. How was yours?

oh, here's our team pala. in White:
