In a fit of desperation, I have SPLurged (s, p and l emphasized to get a SPL-leh, spitting sort of sound)...RM199.90 on a pair of jeans from Pull&Bear.

Didn't go to work today, work up with severe headache and went back to sleep. I need to find a night job. Woke at 3 (don'tjudgemeiwasn'tfeelingwellok) and went downstairs. Headache came back because slept too much.

Watched Left Behind:World At War. Good ah! Everyone should watch. Watched Juno and The Truman Show last night also. Everyone should watch those too, very nice. :)
Decided during the commercials (Left Behind was on AXN) that i'd go on my jeans-hunt today. Took a loan from Papa and went.

Spent a whole hour in Levi's. The lights kept going off (they were fixing the lights or something), which was scary. Went through a whole pile of jeans, but still couldn't find The One.

Walked around one u, bumped into Adelynn who was there looking for a belt to go with her dress. We wasted no time on mindless window shopping, each had a mission and it was already 9.30 pm. The stored close at 10. We went separate ways.

Walked into Pull and Bear. Found The One. In my whole life, I've only found The One pair of jeans 3 times (this being the third, and the most expensive). Jeans are my staple diet.

First time : Unexpectedly, and unintentionally, in Mahkota Parade, Melaka. Giordano, Dark Blue, straight cut, rather high waist (the 90s were just over la, low waist wasn't in yet, and boot cut didn't come back until the next year). 2000, RM 109.00 Lasted 5 and a half years.
How it ended : Cool-looking tear at the knee area grew larger and larger until you could see my whole knee. Then another hole grew on my second knee and you could see both my knees. Have cut them into shorts.

Second time : This one was a steal! Bought in One Utama, Bandar Utama. G&H (they stole the Abercrombie moose), Light Blue, with sequins sown on back pockets, Low-er waist, Boot-ish cut, loose. 2006, RM45. Didn't last very long..maybe thats why its so cheap.
How it ended : A hole ripped right across one leg. Have stitched it up, but it will never look the same again. Am planning to cut them up as well.

Third time : Most expensive, One Utama, Bandar Utama. Pull and Bear. Light Blue, 99% cotton, 1% spandex, low waist, boot-cut. 2008, RM 199.90. Blew a hole right through my soul.

After buying them jeans, i walked out of the shop with my mind in a mess: Have to ikat perut from now on. I am SO broke. How am I going to survive the next few weeks? And then i walked into Bata and bought a pair of shoes for RM29.90. Buy now, figure out how to survive later.

Thanks, Chris for paying for my drink just now.
