our time

the whole week of christmas week, i'd been trying to schedule meeting time with lala. on the 22nd, we talked about meeting that day, then changed our minds and talked about cramming something on the 23rd. in the same conversation, we changed our minds again, and settled for meeting on the 24th, during the early parts of the day.

on the night of the 23rd, sometime 11 pm, i became unsure about the wisdom of getting together during christmas eve. i guessed we'd probably be busy, what with last-minute shopping, cooking, getting together with family, relatives, and other friends, and doing other miscellaneous things.

at about the same time, lala texted me to confirm details of our plan: dearling, what time you free for a meetup/visit tom?

one less problem w/o you

i realize that it has just simply been a long time since i've written anything inspired here. at the moment, i got nothing inspiring at hand but i do remember that a week ago, i wrote down in a notebook a line that i got from a kurt schneider mash-up song.

i noticed a particular line in the song that i liked when i heard it:

"i got one less problem without you, but you're all i need."

makes me smile.

so here's their video. i hope you like it!
