Okay, so I thought there’s gonna be another big rally. I haven’t seen one in a long time. I kinda miss it 🙂 Seriously, I support the cause.
On TV: I watched Prison Break last night. It was promising. Familiar faces, like John Doe, that teacher in Boston Public and the lead in one The Twilight Zone episode I watched for 4 times when I was sick and was in bed. 🙂 Of course that’s just how I was reminded of them, I am more excited to see how the whole show would unfold.
I also watched, after a frustrating day (but that an entirely different story), american idol…back-to-back. Yes, I think there was no StarNews Asia and Friends. I wonder if that will be the case tomorrow and on Friday. Oh well, all 12 female contenders sang and my early favorites did well. Simon said that 4 contestants stood out that night and Katharine McPhee was the best of them. I kinda agree but I think it would have to be Lisa Tucker for me. I think too that the four singers he meant were Mandisa, Paris, Lisa and Katharine (in order of appearance). I could be wrong but based on his comments, the 4 stood out naman talaga. Apart from the four, I also like Ayla, Brenna (I just love the spunk!) and Kinnik. I am excited to see how the guys would do tomorrow!
Work stuff: A big bowl of crap. The associate chief editor has reminded us to keep our emotions in check and leave each and every personal angst at the office door. Well, it’s one hell of a task if what makes you angsty and annoyed is in the office! Yes, we’re talking about a person 🙂 Hay, I dunno until when I can endure this. Maybe I ought to stick it out and fight na parang tooth for a tooth or something like that. I just hate scheming people kasi. If I can’t love my job, just do what is expected of me, and be thankful for the salary. Yun na lang. Better to watch TV at home. Mamamatay din sya. Este yung incident pala. Who knows.
Plus, things come to me that made me happy.
My VF issue finally came! The photos were amazing! You can check out www.justjared.com for scans of the inside pages. I loved Dakota Fanning’s classic shot. The others are awesome, too. A collector’s item 🙂
A gift from Powerbooks. My letter was editor’s pick for their magazine’s (Read) current issue. Just wrote something cheesy then voila! 🙂 It’s not as if I so wanna have this but pwede na rin. Have I told you that I don’t like the endings of Dan Brown’s books? And that I don’t own a copy of The Da Vinci Code? i plan to buy one, though. Feeling ko lang it will still be talked about in twenty or thirty years and i wanna show my future kids my own copy of the book from my time. 🙂 Pero saka na lang.
Yay, let’s have a yabang moment 🙂 This is a beanie baby which is supposedly from the office of the President (of the U.S., obviously). I got this as a gift because I got a perfect score in a course that our whole unit took for almost 4 months. We had the exam before the end of the year then the test papers were faxed over to FSI (Foreign Service Institute) in VA. Our boss then picked up the results when she went there for training then she carried a story that she mentioned to State Department Secretary Condi Rice that someone from Manila got a perfect score in the exam…thus the token from the State Department. I dunno if it’s true, and I’m not saying din naman that our boss concocted this story but…syempre blushing moment! Humility aside, I’m proud of myself. See, kaya ko naman pala. Much as I regret having to perpetually say, “I could have done better” when I was in school, I try to motivate myself by thinking of the fact that I used to be very good at this (studying and topping exams…yeah). Minsan I would have to face the truth that I might be too rusty and beyond repair, but nothing is really certain, is there? Well, my friends did well in the test also, they’re almost perfect! Ano ba kasi yung question number 8 na yun eh! Nevertheless, it just goes to show, we’re… yeah, good 🙂
