The Devil Wears Prada

This is the best book that could best describe my life right now.

Although the protagonist is a woman, it's her work environment and attitude that I could relate most to.

Great read, even for straight people.

Chopsuey I

My sister left for Singapore this morning, taking along her daughter and leaving the son to our care. I think traveling has been part of their lives na.

I slept at 2 this morning and woke up at 5. There is something fucking wrong with me.

Being the impulse buyer that I am, I bought three audio CDs last night: Cueshe with their cute vocalist Jay; Gregorian, because of their reindition of Evanescence's My Immortal; and last but not the least, Maksim, for his music, and the AVCD that accompanied the main CD for only Php 455. I think the last one was the best bargain.
Also had Thanksgiving Dinner last night, courtesy of my Americanized sister. As usual, the turkey was bland. I never had a liking for that fowl.

Quote From Robert Jordan

If you can look at absolutely anything without at least a desire to weep, then you've lost part of your humanity.

I'm Despicable

Yesterday, I was talking to the wife of my crush. Actually, we were playing Literati over YM. Anyway, for no reason at all, I suddenly asked her if other guys court her, since based on my observation it is as if she's not married yet. Actually, even her husband, B, acts like a bachelor. I also asked her if B gets proposals from girls. She asked me why I asked this, I just told her I was curious.

Not only that, I further asked her about her married life - if she and her husband have fights. She said yes, and it involves money, emotion, and even sex.

But you know, what I really wanted to tell her is that I liked her husband. I don't know if it's the right decision. It almost came out, but I thought better. It's best not to meddle with something I can't manage to control.

Well, whatever. I wish them good luck.

Should I Roll Over and Die Next?

ala cofibean:

Grabe naman kase my bosses eh, they're like slave-drivers kaya. My eyes are going to make luwa na noh.

Funny English

Recent SUN Cellular Commercial Girl: "It's raining outside, aren't they?"

I find it funny that the entire sentence is not coherent. But it's probabaly the way she delivered.

Answer This

"If yesterday was two days ago tomorrow, will the day after tomorrow be today or yesterday?"

At First It Was Just A Hunch ...

... and then it was confirmed.

Remember when I told you that there were two people here scheming against me? Well, it turns out that the two of them are not talking.

At first I just noticed that MV doesn't approach our station that much. Then all of a sudden it stopped.

Last Tuesday, Ate S confirmed everything.

MV's plan backfired - on her. Napaka-pangit naman talaga kasi ng ugali niya. And I think that is where the difference between us lie. Instead of fueling the fire, I just sit here, unmindful of their current situation. My war with her is an entirely different scenario.

So now I'm sure, it was her who fanned the flames when he and I were not talking.

Eat shit, MV.

Here's to you.

Career Change

I am seriously considering on not finishing my probationary status - even if there are only over two months left - for a number of reasons I believe I have already enumerated in my previous posts.

And for that I have two possible jobs in mind.

The first is to work as Purchasing Officer also in a rival company. I know it would be an entirely new thing, since I won't be imposed with much restrictions. I still have to talk to a friend who used to have the post, though.

The second job is to become a Technical Writer. I probably don't possess the eloquence of Ennui and Phanksmaster, or even the attention-grabbing style of ihatecofi, but at least the job would stick to its description, and that is to write.

I plan to leave after I get the 13th month pay and the Christmas bonus.

Tutal gaguhan lang naman sa kumpanyang ito, makikipagsabayan na ako.

Oh well, I'll see what happens, and I definitely need some advice here.

About My Sister

Grabe. Her husband gave her a Nokia N90 as an anniversary gift. Damn. Wala na, inggit na ako.

I just learned last night that she's also in a bad mood lately because of one of the maids. That is why I try to avoid her. Not that I don't want to talk to her, rather, I don't want to see her mad at the maid. Besides, my leaving the office has got nothing to do with her but with those callcenter agents hanging at the steps of Burgundy Tower. They belong to Sykes. I should know, I worked there before. More on my job later.

My sister is right to get mad with our nephew. He stays up late, and sleeps almost all morning. His life is messed up, and he's really messy with his belongings. Why, just the other weekend, we cleaned the guest room and we found lots of garbage. If it were BB's house, I'm sure he'd be automatically nominated. I heard he's going to be evicted soon.

For My Friends in the Philippines

Watch out for my nephew's commercial. Johnson & Johnson's Cologne. He's the kid wearing yellow shirt. Also, when you pass by SLEX along Alabang, you would see his massive Sustagen billboard. I'll post his picture here once I get a decent one.

I'm inis with the driver of that KEN taxi ha. I swear he can't drive.

It's a Chaotic Blogspot World

As my favorite saying goes: Truly, if there is evil in this world, it lies within the heart of mankind.

The Portrait of the Counselor Idealist (iNFj)

The Portrait of the Counselor Idealist (iNFj)
The Counselor Idealists are abstract in thought and speech, cooperative in reaching their goals, and directive and introverted in their interpersonal roles. Counselors focus on human potentials, think in terms of ethical values, and come easily to decisions. The small number of this type (little more than 2 percent) is regrettable, since Counselors have an unusually strong desire to contribute to the welfare of others and genuinely enjoy helping their companions. Although Counsleors tend to be private, sensitive people, and are not generally visible leaders, they nevertheless work quite intensely with those close to them, quietly exerting their influence behind the scenes with their families, friends, and colleagues. This type has great depth of personality; they are themselves complicated, and can understand and deal with complex issues and people.

Counselors can be hard to get to know. They have an unusually rich inner life, but they are reserved and tend not to share their reactions except with those they trust. With their loved ones, certainly, Counselors are not reluctant to express their feelings, their face lighting up with the positive emotions, but darkening like a thunderhead with the negative. Indeed, because of their strong ability to take into themselves the feelings of others, Counselors can be hurt rather easily by those around them, which, perhaps, is one reason why they tend to be private people, mutely withdrawing from human contact. At the same time, friends who have known a Counselor for years may find sides emerging which come as a surprise. Not that they are inconsistent; Counselors value their integrity a great deal, but they have intricately woven, mysterious personalities which sometimes puzzle even them.

Counselors have strong empathic abilities and can become aware of another's emotions or intentions -- good or evil -- even before that person is conscious of them. This "mind-reading" can take the form of feeling the hidden distress or illnesses of others to an extent which is difficult for other types to comprehend. Even Counselors can seldom tell how they came to penetrate others' feelings so keenly. Furthermore, the Counselor is most likely of all the types to demonstrate an ability to understand psychic phenomena and to have visions of human events, past, present, or future. What is known as ESP may well be exceptional intuitive ability-in both its forms, projection and introjection. Such supernormal intuition is found frequently in the Counselor, and can extend to people, things, and often events, taking the form of visions, episodes of foreknowledge, premonitions, auditory and visual images of things to come, as well as uncanny communications with certain individuals at a distance.

And His Name Is ...

Jonathan Piñera, b.k.a. Athan. I saw his profile in Friendster, and damn I think he already has a kid. Ano ba naman 'yan?! What is it with me and attached people?

The other day, Phanskmaster called me an angel. He he he. Thanks, but I'm not. Ü

Last Monday I met someone over at Megamall. Wala lang.

My sister just got home from her Ilocos tour. To the best of my knowledge, she was invited to the birthday celebration of Luis "Chavit" Singson in Vigan. Grabe, my sister knows alot of really influential people.
