Okay, at least this year I didn't cram. This year, I actually remembered to kinda prepare. Although I was on the brink of forgetting. At first I told him I wouldn't have time to prepare and shop for gifts. Well, I was thinking I might end up rushing like last year... so at least I've set that up. The deal was that at least (if the gift never happens), I'd treat him to dinner.
But then I thought, well, if I have time let's get him a gift. One lunch time, I left early to browse for a gift. I knew that he wanted an FM transmitter for his Nano. But the one we saw was kinda expensive. I got to find one that's about 500 bucks cheaper (or maybe more). That done, I was already kind of proud of myself.
I walked on through another mall, on the way to 6750 where I was supposed to have a meeting with Client at around 2PM. I passed by a video store. And then ching! An idea hit me. I'd get him his favorite movie. I knew that they had a 2-disc special. I thought of actually not getting them, since I already had a gift in my hand. But this gift was predictable. I need something that will surprise him. So there they were, now being paid, the card being swiped: Batman and Batman Returns. Over the budget now, but well, who cares. It's going to make him happy.
So today I gave him the gifts, plus a nice card. I treated him to dinner at Sorabol, for a Korean BBQ extravaganza. We then had coffee to balance out the headaches brewing from eating too much. It was a happy birthday. It's a great feeling, when the happiness of one person makes you feel all nice and giddy inside. Happy Birthday to my man. Mwah!
Here's what I wrote in the card:I'm getting better, ain't I?

Sometimes bored. Most of the time oddly alive. Phobic of butterflies. Creatively suppressed. Hungry for coffee and shoes. This is my subconscious talking... at times interrupted by my reality.
