I Have A Stupid Case of FML This Week


I noticed my purple loafers felt a little weird while I was on my way to work today. I paused to check it out and noticed that the stupid kitten heel (I hate kitten heels, I tell you) on the left pair was slowly detaching itself from the rest of the sole. I wasn’t anywhere near the office yet (I was actually walking through Gateway Mall to get from one train station to another, heh) so I dropped by a hardware store to buy some contact cement. I silently told my shoes to keep its shit together until I get to the office so I could do the necessary quick fix.

Fortunately, it did. Of course, as soon as I sat down to check out the heel, it completely broke off. As if that wasn’t enough, the right pair’s heel started getting all wiggly like a loose tooth, too.

The current state of my loafers (I’m supposed to apply pressure after applying the contact cement but I can’t work with one hand. Plus the soles are dirty):

COLORFUL RUBBERBANDS! DOES THIS QUALIFY AS HIPSTER WEAR??? Maybe I’ll leave them on and not buy a new pair of shoes, after all. No. It’s ghetto.

This is what I get for stomping around like an elephant on ephedrine. With the amount of walking I do on a daily basis (and with the way I walk plus I tend to get/be drunk on my feet), I regularly send in my shoes for repairs. I’ve never had a pair fall apart on me this badly AND WHILE wearing them, though. Ridiculous.


I cut my left index finger while opening a can yesterday morning. It bled like a vadge on the rag. I applied pressure on it with (first) a dishtowel, (second) some cotton, and (third) some cotton and a rubber band. None of the above worked so I wrapped a band aid around it and went to work.

The darn thing was still bleeding at 130am. Boyfriend told me to take off the bandaid and let the cut dry to allow the blood to clot.

IT WAS STILL BLEEDING THIS MORNING. I was on the phone with a good for nothing Chinatrust customer care rep and after I hung up, I checked my face in the mirror and I had blood all over my left cheek. RIDICULOUS. I might as well open a health savings account for it. Hrhr.


Chinatrust is the worst bank ever, I wish our office didn’t have to transfer out of Standard Chartered. I mean, look at their logo, it looks like a Christmas tree ornament. HOW CAN THEY EVEN BE A REAL BANK. And “We Are Family”?! I WANT OUT OF THIS RETARDED FAMILY.

Everytime I try to get cash from their ATM, their system dies on me. I haven’t been able to transfer funds electronically and when I gave their idiotic hotline a call this morning to ask why, I was told it’s because payroll accounts have limited services or something. LIES. If that’s true: STUPID, INCONVENIENT BANK.

I’m full of bratty funshine today.

    You should have it checked o_o If it’s still bleeding maybe it’s a deep cut (no sutures needed hopefully).

    Are you sure you don’t need to get anti-tetanus shots?

    sabi ng mga matatanda mas madami daw dumdudugo ang mga sugat kapag mainit.

    I hate kitten heels! I have yet to encounter a sturdy pair. Even the supposed good brands get all wobbly on me.
