Talking to Myself

On the eve of an overseas trip:

Me: (taking a deep breath) Okey..I’m using Barbie bag tomorrow…

The Other Me (TOM): What’s that deep breath for? It’s just a bag!

Me: ..but it’s pink..*sigh*

TOM: So what? The important thing is for you to use it a few times, sort of like a test drive, before you bring it to the UK.

Me:…but I’m worried what people will say…it’s just sooo not me.

TOM: My goodness! Just because you got free media mileage from Snglguy’s blog post yesterday doesn’t make you famous enough for people to take notice! What an ego you have…

Me: But I’m worried about my colleagues when we meet up tomorrow night at the airport, I am sure they’ll laugh at me!

TOM: You don’t only have an over-active imagination but you’ve also got an overblown sense of self-importance…the thing is, who cares?!

Me: I can already see them snickering away—maybe I should just use the green one.

TOM: No, you are suppose to use this one and see if it works okey, besides you are only away for a week, you don’t need a bigger bag.

Me: Yiiiii-ikes…I can see myself and Barbie bag glowing beside me…

TOM: You know what, there are more important things to think about…like making sure you’ll bring your passport, your ticket, your money…

Me: Oh yeah, I’ve got that covered…sigh…it’s pink…

TOM: (frustrated sigh) Hello, will somebody out there give this girl the “Silliest Blogger Award?”

Gypsy said...

TOM CRUISE!!Sana..but this wouldn't be the kind of conversation I would dream up with him! Nope, it means The Other Me (AKA Miss Gollum). :)

Swipe said...

at least it will be easy to spot in the baggage claim area.

I thought it was TOM BABAUTA.

Rey said...

You really like this bag. You've talked about it for the second time now. hehe.

Beng said...

When is a bag not just "a bag?" When it's super pink and when it's you using it! haha, natawa naman ako dito. Malaki pala talaga epekto sa iyo nitong bag na ito which you also posted about a while bag. Isipin mo na lang, it's what's inside (the bag) that counts! :) Ingat sa Indonesia, Gypsy!

snglguy said...

Have a safe trip, Gypsy. Godspeed...

And stop talking to yourself, ok? Baka ma-mental hospital ka, haha. :-D

Kidding lang po...

Wil said...

I am so jealous of you and Verna for having such lively discussions with your inner Gollums. Do you have a similar discussion with yourself when deciding what to have for dinner? hehehe

vernaloo said...

sheesh...obviously I'm poor in acronyms hehe

intsik said...

BON VOYAGE FRIEND! naku ikaw ay aalis na nga pala! ok lang ang pink. malay mo, babagay sau yan! hahahahahahahahaha

ingat ka don! sobrang inggit ako kay snugz sa send off party ninyo!

kayni said...

enjoy the trip. i'll be in london in october, maybe we can meet for tea.

mitsuru said...

i'm back bloghopping:)

don't fret, you'll look pretty in pink! :)

just tell them you're a member of the hello kitty generation. hehe

exskindiver said...

bon voyage you silly girl!!!
and embrace your inner pink.

aryo said...

You can still dye it, or sputter paint over it para mag mukhang abstract. Either way, you'll still attract attention. Better yet, live with it. Ang ganda nga e. Bweheheheh.

Ynon said...

that pink bag is getting popular. have a good, enjoyable and safe trip.

;)

Major Tom said...

You don't really need to be worried about this really. TOM is right, you got to use it and that's all. It's all Shakespeare I assure you, like much ado about nothing. Besides, the color really fits you and bagay nga sa yo, having such a fair skin. With a woman with a deep tan, now that's another story.

dimaks said...

you need a good pairing with that pink bag. perhaps a pink arm band will do? hehehe.. greetings!

Abaniko said...

Nobody really cares. Just carry it with attitude. Solve na.

melai said...

weee..ako man ayaw ko ng pink bag :)

Alternati said...

Have a great trip Gypsy... If I were you.. I'd go out of my way to make the bag dirty... then you'd end up bleaching the whole thing... And if the bleach is as strong as we hope... you could end up with a white bag... chic and classic. :P

Jap said...

gypsy, you're still not over it? hahahaha have you thought about putting stickers on it? something really ironic like a KORN sticker or BARYA LANG SA UMAGA hehehe make the most out of it. I'd trade my hideous boring black for that lovely pink =)

Gypsy said...

Swipe, Tom Babauta?! Wow...magka generation ba tayo? ;)

Rey, hmm...at least may character...kahit na iba ang character sa akin, hehe.

Beng, hehe, I count on you for positive input! Hehe...the trip was very tiring but good, now to think of UK...*sigh*

Snglguy, thanks for the advice! I actually dont make a habit of talking to myself..until this bag came along! Hmp..

Wil, I try to NOT mind my inner Gollum..hehe..

Verns, nalipat ka lang..hehe.

Intsik, hehe...thanks friend, am back in Manila ulit...Indonesia punta ko, ngayon pa ako mag pack for UK. Nagbonding na kami ni Barbir Bag sa we should have a pleasant trip together...bwehehe..

Kayni, really? Oh, wow, okey--I need to check out what my situation in the Uk is gonna be but do drop me an email..gypsygirl@bluebottle.com

Mitsuru, hehe, oo nga naman, I was of that generation when it first came out!!

Exskindiver, hahah! I like that, embrace my inner pink!! Hehe...

Aryo, naisip ko na rin yan..sana nga may oras ako..hehe..I will just make surehindi baby blue yong isang color na i-sputter ko, kundi talagang MMDA byuti ko!!

Ynon, if one of you bloggers bump into me at an airport, then you would know its me because of Barbie Bag!

Major Tom, haha, I thought you mentioned Shakespeare because it is TRAGIC! hehe

Dimaks, or pink hair?? Yikes!

Abaniko, you sound like my inner Gollum, hehe..

Melai, ayan, may kapareha na ako..:)

Alternati, hehe mukhang ganun na nga mangyayari, its already getting smudged here and there. :) So baka grey ang labas!

Jap, hehehe...hingi ako sa jeepney driver!
