Failure to Shop

I think I’ve blogged a few blogs ago that I’ve been thinking of going shopping for clothes, shoes, watch, etc. in one swoop, which I must now report was a complete failure as my money immediately went elsewhere, in particular: The thick compilation Showcase Volume: Legion of Superheroes Volume 4, a loose (and much bargained) Supergirl and Larfleeze action figures from the recent Collecticon 2010 in Rob, mint condition Blue Lantern Saint Walker and Indigo Lantern Indigo-1 action figures, and all that stuff we had to pay for the IM boards coming very soon. The last one I inserted so I wouldn’t look like a total wastebag. What I sort of–sort of–regret not getting among the supposed necessities however was the wristwatch, as I haven’t had a wristwatch since high school. Or maybe elementary. And just in case some HAMI or future HAMI is reading, I never did Q-tingin during monitoring–I would usually use with much inconvenience my PDA, the nearest wallclock, my cellphone, and my favorite: the patient’s wristwatch.

Back in high school Namtab Pots had this watch with the strap made of some green fatigue cloth-like material. It would absorb all the sweat his arm has accumulated the whole day. At 5 pm before buying ice scramble or something he would remove the watch and bring it to everyone’s noses, and scream, “AMUYIN NYO!!!” I don’t know why I remember these things.
