Headache, anyone?

I haven’t been feeling really good lately. I was up to my neck with work until yesterday. Well, now there are still two instruments waiting to be done and I don’t feel like moving. I just want to sit here in my desk and stare at the computer all day. I have a lingering headeache. I had to repair and calibrate an old telecom test instrument which had an intermittent fault. Bangungot (nightmare)that is how we termed a fault when it is very hard to fix, back when I was working in a GE wireless phone manufacturing in the Philippines. *Sigh* hirap talaga kumita ng pera. Glad it’s all done now.

Another reason for my headache is lack of sleep. Shane is bloody snoring! It’s loud enough to wake me up and when that happens I wouldn’t be able to go back to sleep right away. During the day, I would feel tired and sluggish, will have headache and can’t think clearly. I am falling aleep even now as I am writing this. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

It’s not (just) ANZAC Day, it’s (also) bacon and eggs day…

I have drafted this on Thursday last week but was not able to post as I have been busy and I don’t really feel a hundred percent this past week. I get so tired so quickly and my motivation to even go to work is near zero. Zilch.

April 25 is a special occasion for Australia. Officially nmaed ANZAC Day in 1916, the date commemorates the landing of the Australia and New Zealand troops in Gallipoli during the World War 1. More here on ANZAC Day.

Commemorative services are held at dawn across the nation. Ex-servicemen and women meet and join the marches throughout the major cities and many other smaller centres.

And since ANZAC DAy is a public holiday, that meant no work and no work means sleeping in. 🙂 I felt sluggish when I woke up at 9’ish and was craving for bacon and eggs. Shane was watching NHL Ice Hockey playoffs Vancouver vs Dallas. I joined him and started blabbering about bacon and eggs. I kept bugging him to go to the supermarket but of course he can’t be bothered. If hockey is on, he is glued to the TV. Nothing else matters. Bugger. I dont’ want to go myself so I had to wait until hockey finishes.

After a looong wait, he did go to the supermarket only to come back empty handed. The shops were closed and won’t open until 1:00 in the afternoon. (In respect to the ANZACs, shops remain close until midday.) We called mum to check if she has some but unfortunately she doesn’t have bacon, only eggs. She suggested McDonald’sor even the milk bar. (A milk bar is actually a convenient store like 7-Eleven but is called such becasue it used to sell just milk. The name just lived on). Oh yes, Maccas. They must be open today. Even fire does not stop them. Shane said we try the milk bar first but I didn’t want to cook now, just drive to Maccas.

Off we drove to the nearest McDonald’s. Whaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh! We’re 15 minutes too late. Breakfast is over! Darn. I need to have that bacon and eggs, and now. Our only chance now is the milk bar. Another five minutes of me whinging in the car and Shane was in the milk bar. He came out with a sheepish smile carrying a bag of eggs and bacon. The bacon was the last ration too. Whew!
