kinky omens, procrastination, and bathroom deodorizer

Seen from my bedroom window, the overcast sky seems less ominous. It does not foretell disasters. It merely hints at kinky omens. The fragrance of a garishly colored candle on my bed stand reminds me of bathroom deodorizer. It also reminds me to head off to the bathroom and take a shower before I run late for work today. Traffic will probably be bad and street urchins will have a grand time dousing windshields with soaped water in exchange for a few coins. Vendors will have a brisk sale of umbrellas that won’t open after the third use. Expletives and cusswords will come flying like bees as motorists try to outdo each other in owning the road. And I, well, I will be saddled with thoughts of things I should’ve done but didn’t do. The allure of procrastination and the beauty of regret that hounds it. The office party I missed last Friday has nothing to do with this. Nor the LF anniversary party last Saturday, where, after having psyched myself to down at least a dozen beers, I ended up finishing only half a bottle because I had LBM. Having LBM at a party is a disaster worse than the Great Deluge. Worse, indeed, than how doomsayers interpret the overcast sky outside my window right now. But I’ll have a worse fate if I don’t prepare to go to work now. The road will be swarming with procrastinators rushing to get to their offices today. And believe me, it will not be a good sight.

It’s great to be back.

dionne--hope so, too

muddynights--i think this post pretty much sets the direction of this blog, unfortunately.

adie--nakuha mo na emails ko. dun na lang tayo mag-usap. baka basa na naman ang sahig dyan sa inyo, masyado ka kasing malibog

sayong--nope, haven't seen it yet. miss our German class. nasa states na daw si Frau Benavids?

bismuth--don't forget the kinky skies

sunset eyes--bring out the champagne and vodka! let's celebrate

bingskee -- yes, procrastination sometimes does wonders.

abaniko--i see kinky omens everywhere

saint eroica--punyemas, oo nga, buhay pa pala ako!!!

gipster -- oo nga, sana nga. di kasi pwede magblog sa offic eh

glorieux -- Hallo, Frau Gloria! aber, ich nicht Sie verstehe (tama ba yan?) you're still learning German in New York? Yeah, Frau Benavids is teaching Filipino to German-Americans there.

ie--it still is! thanks so much for dropping by

rmacapobre--j'ai beaucoup de regrets dans ma vie mais j'ai choisi de les ignorer, sinon, je ne peux pas vivre joyeusement. Tu as raison, ce n'est pas possible d'exister sans regret.

rebel heart--thanks so much!!!

goodness, it's a bit disconcerting to be using three languages in replying to my readers' comments. i should make a rule here. From now on, only one language is allowed. Every comment should be in Swahili.
