Discombobulating

One minute I was buying my birthday gift for my godson, the next minute my godson’s mom was texting me not to come to the party since it was raining crazy in their place. She mentioned the possibility of flood. I rested my case. I don’t like flood. I can swim but I don’t like flood.

I was heading my way home when I passed by the cinema. I checked the schedule of Pirates of The Caribbean: At World’s End. Bara-bing! I figured, I was meant to watch it so I bought one ticket and found myself a perfect spot amongst the empty seats.

I did it again. Watch a movie all by myself. No big fuss there but I have to say I’m getting used to it.

If you are in search of clarity, the third sequel to the Pirates film is not the best movie to see. I kept on wondering if I would have understood the movie more if I did some research prior to entering the theater. Then I remembered I was out to relax. And researching to understand a film would defeat the purpose of relaxing. In any case, the film was entertaining—at least those parts which I understood.

In the middle of my solitary movie “fun,” my godson’s mom texted me again to inform me that the rain had stopped and it was in fact sunny. She said that I can come over if wanted to. But I’ve already committed myself to Johnny Depp and company so I said “pass” to my godson’s first birthday party. I'm blaming the weather.

Nichi commissioned me to go back to Toy Kingdom to check out something. Then I decided window toy shopping can be a material for my blog. Hence I’ve come up with another of my list for this month, my birthday month.

Toys I Like which I CAN Live Without:

1. Lego. Lots of them. Enough to allow me construct houses. Mini houses.




2. Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head. Aren’t they cute? You can even dress them up as Star Wars characters or as Spiderman!




3. Light Saber. The more realistic it looks, the more appealing it is to me.




4. Rotating projector nightlight. I don’t know what it is called exactly but it’s cool. The rotating projector nightlight will fill your room with stars or animals—depending on the design you choose. Good for people who are afraid of the dark.


5. Taboo. It’s some sort of a word board game. It may be fun to play.




6. Woody. Since I have Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head on my list, I might as well add Woody, the big one, the one with a real pull-string mechanism. Cute!




7. Water guns. They come in different sizes. Perfect defense against hot-headed people!

I’m done at seven. Seven toys a (nearly) 27-year-old person finds interesting to own. It’s a bit of a mystery that even I can’t seem to outgrow them.

We live in a confusing, if not confused, world. As if the indecisive weather is not enough, we all have to contend with human creation that leaves us perplexed: Movies that hardly make sense but should, otherwise something may be wrong with us; and toys which are ideally intended for kids but no normal kid could possibly afford to buy.

It's "toys i CAN'T live without", tye. hehehe.

Nice pictures. However do you get them. Ang tyaga mo mag-download, upload and arrange.

Hindi ko magawa sa computer ko yan. Hay. Iba kasi application namin dito.

Intentional ang "CAN", Faith. Naaaliw lang ako sa mga toys na yan but I don't really NEED them.

About the pictures...2 things made them possible: 1. My OC-ness, and 2. PLDT MyDSL!

Works wonders!
