*ooh, and a tiny but visible dent on my bumper!
i know we agreed to have a miserable christmas together but i think the gods conspired to make this christmas a wee bit more special for both of us. there's the christmas dinner with very sweet friends of the boyfriend who braved the south luzon expressway traffic so that we can all have noche buena together. there's the day-after-christmas drive to cabanatuan where i've spend the last four days being pampered by my grandmother and favorite aunt. there's the bonding time with the boyfriend at a shell gas station where we caught up on each other's christmas stories. there's the let's-be-friends-again moment with a friend who i thought i've lost already.
watched mano po 2 yesterday, due to aunt's proddings. if i had my way, it would've definitely been crying ladies, especially since i am a closet sharonian at heart. still, she was paying, and since i had been slumming at her home for the last couple of days, i had no choice but to watch a movie pretending to be a filmfest entry.
it was a stupid movie really. for one, there was no story. patriarch dies, three wives fight, there's a pregnant girl, there's a wuss boyfriend, there's a criple, a kind-hearted sister, and a whole lot of shouting and crying. so what's new in all that, right?
and what were they thinking casting susan roces as the older kris aquino. i mean, if i were kris, i wouldn't want to be as old as susan roces 23 years later, especially if zsazsa just aged a bit and lorna actually looked hotter after 23 years. the kris-susan casting was so bad that the people behind us were actually confused
girl 1: sino si susan roces? lola nila?
girl 2: at ano na ang nangyari kay kris?
girl 1: patay na kaya si kris?
and so it went.
they tried to fit in so many story lines that even i got confused.
waste of money. i should've insisted on watching mega. then maybe i could've supported another bout of lipo, right?
i got this digital camera.
it made me happy.
i was so happy i took a lot of pictures of myself. i had so many pictures it was embarassing already.
i was so excited i wanted to take a picture of the traffic in sta. ana pampanga. i whipped it out, even if it said in the manual NOT to take pictures while driving. i reasoned out that it was traffic, and we weren't moving.
except that the car was. slightly. around 5kph.
and the tricycle in front of me wasn't.
so i smashed into it. and it smashed into the tricycle in front of it.
my helpless look worked. i bet he was thinking "stupid girl driver, and she drives that way cause she's a girl."
on a normal day i would've minded. but on a day when i was clearly at fault, i'm glad i got away with an evil look.
an evil look from him and two teeny tiny dents on my bumper.
