Blog Holiday Aha! Aha!

The only true currency in this bankrupt world... is what you share with someone else when you're uncool. - Lester Bangs, Almost Famous (2000)

Here's the sitch dear Scoobies: the economy's down, advertising budgets have been cut by 40%, and my stylish yet affordable boots' soles are getting worn down from all the waking to save on taxi fare.

So I say to myself, T, do your part in helping the world economy and go on a holiday. Spend, drink, and be Mary.

See you in a week.

Until then, as the famous caption after each movie trailer shown in Philippine theaters (in the 1980s) read: Relax, see a movie!

Please don't tell me you're going on leave....

You should partake in the working man's daily suffering by refraining from doing R&R. That's a horrible thing you're doing.

So, where's my Chacun son cinéma? I'm not pressuring you, am I? Ehehehehe.

Fine. I won't tell you that I'm going on leave.

I won't tell you that the country I'm going to has the German and French foreign language film Oscar nominees showing in their multiplexes.

Hehe.

Chacun son cinéma? Qu'est-ce que c'est? Je ne sais pas.

That's as far as my French 11 goes so do not reply in fluid French. Hehe.
