02C29: Unproductive Holiday Monday

Monday Sinigang

Metro Manila Community Quarantine - Day 1045

It has been quite a while since we had a chance to go to O Bar on a Sunday that didn't involve some sort of an event, and I admit that I had missed the experience. The energy on Sundays is always very different from other nights. The shows are still great but you can feel the performers are having a bit more fun from time to time. The bar isn't as crowded but there's still a healthy number of people present, so you can still feel the energy from other patrons as well. 

In some ways, I feel like I didn't make the most of today's work holiday. But then again, holidays are also a great time to sleep in and get more rest, especially after a very busy weekend. And it's not like my productivity was entirely zero - I still got a lot done including yoga, cooking sinigang for lunch, baking a batch of keto pandesal, and finishing my study of the rules of Weather Machine. Had it not been for a scheduled massage, we would have tried to play through the game tonight, but that'll have to wait for another day for now. 

In scarier Sietch news, we randomly heard a clicking noise that we couldn't quite pinpoint. It sounded like someone was hammering metal somewhat gently, but from corner of the unit that only had the fire escape on the other side. But then it turned out it was our older shelving unit (a creative one that leans against the wall without nails) that was slowly tilting and on the brink of collapsing. We manage to clear the shelf to assess the damage and it looks like re-balancing things will be my bonus project for tomorrow. I do have a scheduled foot spa at noon, but beyond that I was hoping to continue to take things easy and just relax.

This may still be a temporary solution since it seems the main supports that lean against the wall have started to bend (hence the clicking/tapping sound). We'll need to get things back in order for now so we don't have collectibles at random places around the Sietch as they are now after our hurried evacuation of things. But yeah, it's a weird random new problem that we'll need to deal with. And it's just a symptom of the larger problem of needing more space overall to handle our rather massive collection of things.
