scribbler falling asleep

one thing that i would probably miss most living here in the US if asked to leave in a time that i don’t want to yet … it’s the wireless connection. before, i enjoyed wireless since i could stay connected for free. but now that we have purchased a router (i love thanksgiving sales…specially if spent in Circuit City), my connection is at an unbelievable peak. yesterday, i didn’t even bother to download studio 60 from nbc’s site – i watched it in their site, without a single interruption. last sunday, i saw grey’s latest episode online since i missed it last thursday. well, i know we have wireless and broadband connection back in manila – but i pay $20/month for mine now … and that includes cable already! sweet ‘ey? i told you, this is one of the few things i will dearly miss … maybe i should be thinking about torrent files?

i can’t sleep. i could use looking for a job as an excuse, but the truth is – everything just feels so unsettled. another plan has been shattered by reality, and depression is again trying to get the best of me. difference now is i have been fighting it, rather than succumbing to its powers – i have somehow adapted. it’s not that i don’t feel depressed anymore, i just try dwell on the “so what? ” more nowadays.

i have semi-completed our itinerary for las vegas. semi-completed ‘cuz i haven’t written down or summarized anything; added sites to my favorites in explorer as well as dog-eared pages in the travel book for nevada that i got. i have second thoughts on taking the grand canyon tours. my initial plan was to drive there – checked the maps, it’s a 5-hour drive from las vegas strip – making the trip cheaper. but my mom is not the most confident driver (if only she will allow me to drive her precious … probably if i had a licence she would) plus she is not sure her car was built for such fatigue. how much is the tour? cheapest i’ve found so far is at $85.99 which includes food and the buses looks good too. anyway, i searched flickr for breath-taking shots of grand canyon to convince me that $85.99 is a cheap price to pay to witness a natural wonder. after about 3 slide shows from different professional photographers, $85.99 still feels expensive. yes i know the seeing it first hand would be a totally different experience … but still, i need a little more convincing.

checked pictured of las vegas too in flickr. HOW I WISH I BOUGHT WIDE-ANGLE LENS LAST THANKSGIVING!!! what if, i’ll buy my wide-angle lens and forget about the grand canyon tour? hhmmm …

i can’t sleep.

i went to the library this afternoon.i had to get another book that i reserved as suggested by a friend, despite the fact that i am truly back-logged; i’m halfway through a brief history of time and haven’t even started on my third book – there i was getting another one. and this i used as an excuse not to go to the gym again. i tried feeling this area at my back, in between the butt and waist, to check if fat has deposited due to my lack of hyper-active locomotor movements for the past 2 weeks. i think i felt a lump there, enough for me to pledge to the gods that no excuse will be provided tomorrow. unless a real reason comes up of course.

we’re watching the nutcracker on dec 15! i need to read about it though before i watch it, for fear that i won’t comprehend the story by simply viewing how the hands and legs of ballet dancers move in randomn (yet heartfelt) motion. granted i don’t have a molecule in my body that understands classical music, why am i spending $15 to watch it? well first, $15 is a small price to pay to see a classic and richmond ballet, they say, is a good group. second, you could never know if this experience will jump-start a devotion for classical music (which is long overdue). third reason, (the most real reason of all) i’d like to take pictures =p. i love taking action shots! i’m sure the lighting in the stage would be spectacular and as per Serioku (the Japanese girl we’re going with), she got really good seats. so i’m looking forward to that …

can’t sleep …

i have the f*&ckn’ SPA for my SMC last paycheck. need to get it notarized tomorrow, then drop it off to the post office together with my mail-in rebates from Circuit City, all delivered as registered mails. need to make sure the netflix envelope is beside francis’ bag when he leaves, or else i won’t be able to watch the 2nd CD to BBC’s Pride and Prejudice by Friday. it’s a good thing he is on his “positive mood” for the past week, lament-free dinners lately have been a blessing. i wonder how long the up-swing will last though.

my brother is dealing with a problem that should not have been his concern if only i had the guts to take care of it before i left. but i’ll make it up to him, i’ll talk to his “offenders” once all the legal steps have been completed. he will probably forgive me soon. but i know i will never forgive myself. i knew details were an option with my mom, but she had to know everything. hopefully things will work-out as planned.

R.E.M. plays imitation of life in my ipod.

i should be sleeping …
