Wasn’t able to blog for a week — the longest stretch, I think, ever since I started this one, back in the saner days of March. What can I say? Last week had been brutal. Super heavy workload choked with legalese, and the start of the school year for the kiddo, which means it’s back to the daily 5 a.m. wake-up time for me and the wifey, no matter how late we got home from work the previous night (we both work mid-shift, and commute long distance, in a country with shitty transport system). Indeed, what my body needs now is 10 hours of quality sleep. Either that, or gallons of strong coffee.
Meanwhile, the weekend:
- Went to Enchanted Kingdom with the girls for our office’s annual “family day.” Heat, humidity, crowd, overpriced grub, rides, shrieks, pricey souvenir items, late-afternoon rain, ankle-deep floods — and yet, strangely, it was fun, if not exhausting.
- Answered Father’s Day greetings on Facebook and in person
- Dentist appointment + sidetrip to a furniture store looking for a cabinet for my toys and graphic novels
- Hooked up with a friend who told me this freaky story about a community of cultists he and a friend stumbled upon while hiking in the remote mountainous boundaries of Tanay and Antipolo in Rizal
- Nap vs. Outcast marathon (nap won)
- Grocery with the wifey
- Late-night viewing: latest episodes of Fargo and American Gods
And now it’s Monday, and I really need that strong coffee…
