cramming for christmas
The bad thing about procrastinating for gifts, aside from getting smushed together with all the other crammers, is that you really feel the money diminishing. It's like this big ka-blam of hey, the money's gone. The big price of being unprepared. Having no list and bad memory is a really evil combination. It's either I double-buy gifts for some person, or totally forget someone. Nevertheless, I've gone totally overboard on budget. I didn't have time to go to-and-from Divisoria. So I'm stuck scouring the available bazaars for available gifts fitting (hopefully not force-fitting) people I remember to give gifts to at that moment.

But the good thing about whatever's happening is -- I am very, very happy wrapping the gifts. It's like some form of meditation. Just with a resulting backache or stiff neck. But I swear, I will be entirely content if I was just some gift-wrapper lady in some bookstore.

I played Santa distributing the little gifts this morning. And it was a happy morning. Even if it was a Monday.

Now I have to think of what to cram for the rest of the people. Like my mom. My dad. My sister... *sigh*. Santa will be sooo not proud of me.

    If you are in HK, it's like an "obligatory" way of going to the shopping mall and buy something for yourself and family. I don't feel the spirit that way whereas in Bicol, kunting handaan ayos na sa akin!

    As for the gift wrapping, nowadays, people around here uses a decorative xmas boxes so it's easy to just put the item inside and finish it with a red ribbon. Nawawala na ang creativity at effort to wrap the gifts.

    Magastos talaga ang holidays! For me, trabaho pa rin.

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.

soundtrack of the moment
Jealousy, turning saints into the sea. Swimming through sick lullabies, choking on your alibis. But it's just the price to pay, Destiny is calling me. Open up my eager eyes 'cause I'm Mr. Brightside -- "Mr. Brightside" The Killers
