Quezon - my paradise...ehem...thanks glenny for this pic.
we desperately need an 8th day. we need a 25th hour.
that's what my friend, marlette and i would tell each other every time we find ourselves overwhelmed, frazzled and confused over our Multiple (yes, with a capital M) plans for the day/week.
a couple of months ago, we started to notice that it was getting harder and harder each day to remember our plans. in a week, there would be a couple of movies to watch, coffee with a problematic friend, shopping for whatever occassion, dinner left and right with highschool friends, college friends and ex-boyfriend's friends, drinking night with officemates, badminton, gym, timezone, yada, yada, yada...
it came to a point when we felt like our social calendars (marlette's especially, since her friends can be too demanding) can only be tracked by a high speed computer with massive memory and artificial intelligence. hahaha.
it seems like we're always on the go. i've tagged myself as the kaladkarin buddy
simply because it's soooo easy to get me to go somewhere. just an invite from a friend to anywhere (kahit mall or shopping or food tripping lang during lunch time), as long as i have a means to go home safely, you can count that i'll be there. There would be funny times when, if there is a gathering of our common friends (which is mainly our officemates), and marlette knows i don't know about it yet, she'd just simply say: "Oi, may dinner ka na tomorrow night."
haha. it's a given. it's automatic that i'll be there, as long as i don't have previous plans yet. marlette and i are alike that way. we're just both so kaladkarin talaga.
the other day, we both didn't have any plans for the night and we were just passing time at work to avoid the traffic. marlette, glenn and i were talking when she suddenly said..."you know what, me, you (pointing to glenn) and you (pointing to me). we need to get a life."
and i thought about all our individual plans lined up for the week - thanksgiving lunch out, anniversary dinner with our start group, dinner with my ex's friends, marlette's friend's birthday dinner, team building at enchanted kingdom, bridget jones' diary 2...and of all of those times when we've complained that we need that 8th day or that 25th hour so we can get some rest and yet...i still so completely agree with her.
it may sound ungrateful. uncontented even. i know people who would love to have the freedom of going anywhere and spending quality time with your friends without worrying of anything else. believe it or not, i am thankful that i have all the time and that am blessed enough to squander my salary away without worrying about supporting a family, or taking care of a sick relative, or sending a sibling to school, or any of those kinds of responsibility that would dictate how i spend my money...but i really do agree. we need to get a life.
anyone knows where it's being sold and for how much?
