Empty Days

Sunday, August 01, 2004



The usual.

Saturday was fully rainy - it poured buckets all night long and throughout the day. It was so damp I preferred not to use the computer. I don't know how they deal with that sort of humidity in tropical countries but it can't be good for electronic stuff. I thought what it would be like if I were camping in such weather - would probably feel more like swimming than camping.

But I love days like that - all human activity is completely paralized, there is practically no one in the street and the only human-made noises come from passing cars. Plus it's beautiful and the smells are wonderful too - all that greenery is breathing heavily, you can almost feel it.

In other words - fuck people, long live trees and birds.

The philippino carwash is again going full-speed today - because it's a beautiful sunny day. And these cocksuckers are glad to spoil it with all their fucking cars packed in the driveway. FUCK. Interestingly enough, they decided to cover up the noise from vacuum-cleaning by operating the lawn-mower at the same time - oh boy, how thoughtful of them.

I don't know - I have a hard time seeing these people as fully human. They've been clearly told that their activity is bothersome to tenants, but rather than stop it and go fuck each other, they invent "strategies" to keep it going.

Heh. I mean, what can I say? There is nothing to say. I guess I will have to risk it and do some additional vandalism which is dangerous, because I am sorta notorious in the philippino community by now - they all gossip like hell among themselves, so when you have a problem with one of them, it turns out you have a problem with the whole fucking philippino-land.

Man, I wish there were a civilized "nice" way to deal with these fucks. I guess that guy who was talking to them was a bit too nice - that's the whole problem, they need to get scared, otherwise they just don't get it.

Strategy: paint FUCK YOU on garage door and splash the rest of the paint on the car belonging to the janitor of that building - rather than slashing tyres and risking the balloon-going-flat noise.

I am really mad now.

I better do it as soon as possible otherwise I'll keep seething and fuming in vain out of mere procrastination. The fact remains that this whole shit did not exist before - power-struggle between two philippino janitors, heh. Take one away and shit develops immediately, the law is powerless and nobody can talk any sense into them. FUCK.

On Friday I went to the Salvation Army store and got myself a whole bagful of clothes - I tried repeatedly to find some jeans there in the past but for some reason there was never nothing that was remotely fitting. This time I had a better time, or maybe they got more stock, in any case I blasted $25 bucks - 4 pairs of jeans, light sneakers, a velvet shirt and a sweater. Couldn't find any shorts though. It's amazing but shorts are really hard to find for cheap except for some fat-cow styles which I hate. Anyway. I am thinking I should probably stop worrying and take off with what I have - the sneakers are really light but in case of rain I could probably wrap some plastic bags on my feet which should work fine in terms of waterproofness.

I hope the kind of rain I've seen yesterday won't be returning for another two weeks at least. I will have to ask my father to feed the cat in the meantime, for lack of better solution. Which means I won't be able to go for more than two weeks, and even that is stretching it a bit.

I am still a bit vague about this whole idea, but something tells me that there is no need to plan anything - the most important is just to take off in a certain frame of mind and let things take their course.

One funny detail: the tarp sheet I was able to get is bright-blue in color and it bothers the hell out of me because it's way too visible - I'd prefer green for camouflage purposes. I have the feeling that most of my camping experience will involve hiding from prying eyes somewhere along the road - therefore camouflage is really important and I might regret not paying attention to such "details" as the color of the tent (tarp). Need to follow my intuition, I guess, and try to find that green color after all.

And I still need to get some bug-repellent - most importantly.

Ok. Please dear God let me fuck those asshole philippinoes up their fucking ass. Amen.
