Hi this is Runawaycat’s other self. As the title puts it, RC is currently pissed. When I say pissed, I mean REAL pissed. Hence, me, RC’s other self, has to take her place in typing. Why is she so pissed, you may ask. Well, it is simply because she has had enough of stupid I-want-to-go-to-Singapore tricksters/pretenders. They will come bringing hope and glee to RC by telling her their wish to join the trip only to deliver great disappointment minutes later by saying they, for some reason, can’t. Some even had the guts to ask her for the details.

“Do you think this is funny? It’s not funny anymore. It never was.”

Among the excuses/reasons she got from the tonnes of people she asked, and those who offered to go upon reading her display message, were:

  1. I’d love to go, but I have no passport.
  2. I’d love to go, but I am broke.
  3. I’d love to go, but I can’t because (see 1 and 2)
  4. I’d love to go, but I’m working. I can’t take leave.
  5. I’d love to go, but I (see 1,2, and 4)
  6. And finally, the final (and I hope it’s the last because RC will really lose it) pretender said: “Is your plan on already?” “What’s your budget?” “What? Only $ XXX? I think we’ll need more.” “Who are you going with?” “But I don’t know if I can take leave” And finally, “I’m sorry I don’t think I want to go. I have no money.”

There are other excuses/reasons, RC is sure of it, but she will try not to remember. RC now has only one companion whom she feels might not be serious about going.

“You can’t blame me. I’ve got so many tricksters coming up to me. How can you expect me to trust the whole of mankind anymore?”

She’s also receiving a couple of other opinions from the mighty Queen. All these led to one outcome. RC throws a tantrum and cancels the plan. She’s allowed to throw a tantrum. You shut up, if you even come close to think of her as a spoilt brat, I’ll show you the claws.

RC’s mood got worse when she saw the condition of her wardrobe. It looked like a battlefield. So she’s now off to do some rearrangements. I will also take a break. Have a look at the picture of the war zone.

Update 10:30pm: RC just received an sms about a year end Hong Kong trip. The budget will be 4-5 times that of the Singapore trip but they’re people who actually want to travel. What would RC do? What should she do?

Why don't you go alone? It could be quite an adventure ;-)

Like the Queen would let me. Even if she 'supports' it she'll say things that will eventually make me don't want to go. Royalties have such invisible power.
