all-nighter

So it’s Christmas and I’m pulling an all-nighter at work. That’s like breaking up with your girlfriend on Valentine’s Day. I’ve no complains. I am, after all, a professional journalist, and this is part of the job. To quote Hunter S. Thompson: You buy the ticket, you take the ride.

At 4 am I’ll be off to Nueva Ecija to join my wife and her family for their reunion. I’ll try not to sleep on the bus because I love watching the view outside and do a lot of thinking. A lot of people are uncomfortable with long rides. Not me. But since I’ve been up for more than 24 hours now, powered only by cigarettes and good vibes, staying awake for the three-hour trip would be a tough order.

Merry Christmas, y’all. Herpes and falling teeth to our enemies.

    It’s not the fact that Kai went home drunk; it’s the effort (re: coming home drunk from an office party just to greet you). That is something. Cheers!
