Cursed in the Philippines???

Cursed in the Philippines???

Yep, our meter is fried....
Yep, our meter is fried….


I have been getting a little bit of undesirable luck as of late. A string of it. In fact, a veritable deluge of it. Now really do not get me improper – I am not, as a rule, superstitious. But after counting up the selection of misadventure that I have been having as of late, I am starting up to assume that a little something is up. I stated this to Sara today, and she agreed. She also mentioned that it all appeared to seriously get momentum ideal about the time we took our horrific vacation to Mabinay. Then she reminded me of one particular of the caves we entered (the Marriage Cave) where we were being meant to knock three instances and say “We are coming in….” I remember likely by means of the motions, but I really don’t definitely remember my coronary heart remaining in it. Hmmmmmm……..

So, if you haven’t been preserving observe, here’s a checklist of all the items that have been heading erroneous these previous two months:

Staph Infection: Yep, a plague of boils infested my ideal armpit, necessitating various trips to the doctor and Unexpected emergency Space. I never know if you’ve ever had a boil in your armpit, but just visualize obtaining seven or eight at a time. It also took about three classes of diverse antibiotics prior to coming less than manage – all through that time, a person of the medical professionals also recommened the surgical removal of my sweat glands. Fairly frikken painful…..

Scooter Stolen: Sara’s scooter was boosted from her get the job done. It was wonderful receiving it back again, but it was however pretty stressful time. Sara in distinct was pretty upset, and when she is upset, I am upset. Moreover, we still have to substitute some overall body panels that were taken off of it or punched out.

Back again Goes Out: We strike a big bump on the way back from Mabinay that thoroughly ganked my back again. It has “gone out” right before but this was the worst at any time – I was really a lot housebound and in bed for 5 days and was not starting up to truly feel much better for two frikken months. If you have at any time experienced your back again go out like that, you know what I am conversing about…..

Key Personal computer Explodes: My uber-costly ASUS RoG G73JH’s 5870M video clip card determined to die on me this week. It was a 2012 model and only truly worth about $560 on Ebay. Now it’s truly worth almost nothing.

Stolen Phone: I am to blame for this a person – I remaining my BLU smartphone on the bench of the health and fitness center by accident and an individual made the decision to get it dwelling. I known as the number right following I observed it was long gone but discovered out they experienced by now taken out the SIM card. Absent – along with all my Philippine’s contacts as I was silly and didn’t back again them up to my Gmail account.


The NORECO guys!!
The NORECO men!!


Electric Meter: And then today, the rain shorts out the electricity pole throughout the road, plunging the neighborhood into darkness. I generate down to NORECO and they dispatch a workforce to fix it. All people will get electricity back but us as the ability surge cooked our meter. Back again to NORECO to fill out more paperwork and spend a 200 peso alternative price. Then off to an additional locale only to be advised that we have to pay back for a new meter. We eventually perform it out but our informed we in all probability will not have energy til tomorrow. Ah, bahala na…..
Ideal now, I am anticipating a satellite to slide on me any second. (That’s a Northern Publicity joke by the way….)

And the consistent rain is starting off to get on my nerves. And I need Legendary Orange Items if I am ever heading to beat Borderlands 2 on UVH mode…..

It is received to have some thing to do with that cave in Mabinay. If factors never enhance, I may well have to go again and secure the solutions of a wok-wok witch medical doctor.

We have movie on Mabinay and a bunch of other things (which include Sara’s scooter return) but it’s all on my burnt out laptop that a tech buddy is striving to (fruitlessly) repair service. I am likely to get the vids off it soon and will transfer the SSD generate to my new desktop process that I purchased from Ace Logic.

That is about it. Just desired to vent, bitch and moan….
