Millions of dollars are at stake in a huge tobacco-company case in Biloxi, and the jury’s packed with people who have dirty little secrets. A mysterious young man takes subtle control of the jury as the defense watches helplessly, but they soon realize that he in turn is controlled by an even more mysterious young woman. Lives careen off course as they bend everyone in the case to their will
I just finished reading John Grisham’s Runaway Jury. The book has been with me for a long time but I never had the chance to read it. I thought that it was an old legal thriller and was already made into a movie so there wasn’t any excitement for me. But since I had nothing else to read, and I always liked reading. I finished reading it only today. I read the book at last. I enjoyed it. Big thumbs up.
From the author of “Silence of the Lambs” and “Black Sunday”, this is the book that introduces the series killer, Hannibal Lecter – a tortured, torturing monster who finds ultimate pleasure in viciously murdering happy families.
This is what I am just starting to read. I don’t know what the book was about but from what I just learned, the author – Thomas Harris wrote Silence of the Lambs so I’m expecting gory psycho horror here. It might give me some sleepless nights of wild imagination. But I’m totally up to it. I’m going to start reading the book today.
Nagkamali pala ang lahat ng Press. People were wrong to condemn Gretchen for smooching with John Estrada during Ruffa Mae’s Birthday Party. She deserves an apology. It was all a Smear Campaign against La Greta’s Squeaky Clean Image. It was just her lookalike. Ngayon lang lumabas ang katotohanan.
Ngayon ko lang nakita ito……………..
Decision making is the cognitive process leading to the selection of a course of action among variations. Every decision making process produces a final choice. It can be an action or an opinion. It begins when we need to do something but know not what. Therefore, decision making is a reasoning process which can be rational or irrational, can be based on explicit assumptions or tacit assumptions. (Wikipedia, the Free Encyclopedia)
When you are unsure of a decision you are about to make. When the roads seems uncertain, and you cant stop the hurting (why am I bursting into song?). What I am trying to say is When in Doubt, what do you do? Sometimes a simple decision can chart out your life. And you can’t mess up with that simple decison or you will end up a failure. So which school of thought do you subscribe to?
Gut Feeling – When you just have that strong feeling in the pit of your stomach that the decision you are about to make is the right one. You will even bet your last dollar for this. Maybe even your Grandma’s Silver.
Mother Knows Best – When you just have to consult your Mother or other Maternal Figures for that matter for your decisions. It shows childishness and immaturity to depend on Mom for decisions but surprisingly, sometimes they really know what’s best for you.
That’s What Friends are For – When you call your friends one by one, tell them your dilemma and take a poll of their advices, and you either pick out the best one, or mix up all your friend’s advices and hope for the best. Some Blessed friends offer not just advice but actual physical help.
Happy Go Lucky Attitude. Also known As Bahala na si Batman. Some people really just let it flow. Life is too short. Whatever will be will be. Que Sera Sera. They do not let decision making get to them. They are a rare breed.
Pray for a miracle. Pray hard, pray fast and pray for a miracle. Sometimes they do happen, so while you still can. Pray, pray pray.
How you make your decisions should always depend on personal beliefs, needs and choice. Finally, in personal decision making. there is no one else better to talk to than – yourself.
I can now breathe a sigh of relief.
Smile at the world again and sleep soundly again.
No more worries for me because – I do not need to move out of my flat, Old Flatmate is moving two weeks from now and I have found a new flatmate who will move in after old Flatmate moves out. No need to pack my things anymore. No need to carry out my heavy cabinet. No need to put my things in boxes to be moved to a new place. No need to make new contracts with Real Estate People. No need to go Flat Hunting anymore. I am so relieved. Thank God that somehow Fate is still cooperating with me. Because no matter from what angle I look at it, staying in the flat I am right now is still the best alternative for me, location wise and money wise – BUT! and I stress on the BIG BUT its imperative that I get a new Flatmate. Really.
Good luck to me and my New Flatmate.
How would you feel if you had to move to another flat for reasons that you were totally blameless for? Carry all your belongings from one place to another? Sacrifice a perfectly good view of the beach from your window and exchange it with a view of an old run-down building? Get used to living in a new place again? Pick out the best way to position your furniture in a new empty space which you have to call your new home for yet another unspecified length of time? Make the new space feel like your own? Plot out the route you have to take from new flat to work again? Live with new neighbors again and hope that they are not homicidal maniacs or worst – loud out-of-tune videoke singers? How would you feel?
So don’t ask me why I’m cranky today.
This is me loving my camera phone. I have it with me all the time. I use it whenever I’m bored, happy, sad, naughty, and most especially good hair days. Oh and on a different note, thank you to Friendship Rob for tweaking my Blog Template. And for teaching me how to do these thumbnails. I’ve been dying to know how to do these thumbnails thingies forever.
The weather is changing. How do I know? I don’t need superpowers to know. Aside from the fact that my nose is all clogged up like rush hour traffic in Baclaran during Wednesdays when I wake up, I have also turned my airconditioner on Low Cool and cranked down the temperature. Giniginaw na ako in the wee hours of the morning, but I’m too lazy to turn the AC off. That’s a sure sign.
Pero aside from the change in the weather, napansin ko there’s a change in me too. Serious itu. See, mayron akong super crush before. Si crush na ito ang tipong nahihiya ako sa kaniya. Hingian lang ako ng yosi eh feeling ko may meaning na kaagad yon? Kapag tinext niya ako eh parang katumbas na ng isang buwang bonus ang natanggap ko? Na parang magugunaw ang mundo ko kung hindi ko siya ma-text kahit once a day? Ganung tipo. May mga friends akong takang-taka sa akin kung bakit ko siya crush pero mayroon din namang agree. Pero itong si crush na ito, super hoping ako na may future. Dinadasalan ko iyan sa gabi. Picture niya ang huli kong nakikita bago ako matulog, and iyon ulit ang una kong makikita when I wake up. Overacting nga ako eh. Nagpaplano na ako ng mga pangalan ng aming mga magiging anak. The vacations we would take together. Honeymooning in Phuket and Koh Samui.
But just like any other fantasy, my fantasy ended. The fantasy ended when I realized, Third Party pala ako? So tinigilan ko ang drama. Sawa na akong maging Third Party. Hindi na ako nababagay sa ganung roles. A gusto kong role ay iyong mga Kill Bill roles na pang action na, pero super flawless pa rin ang make up ko and hindi nagugulo ang hair ko. So I moved on. It’s been so long na nga eh. Akala ko me and my ex crush wouldn’t have any communication anymore, even if I had gone to Riyadh several times. I never saw ex. Hindi nag-krus ang aming mga daan. I don’t know what ex looks like now. I just hope that ex crush is happy now. And I’m sure hindi naman niya ako naiisip. Siya nga rin hindi ko naiisip eh. Until this morning. I opened my Friendster account and saw that someone added me as a friend. And he waiting for my approval. Sanay na naman ako sa ganun, kasi nga sikat ako eh. Chos! Sinilip ko kung sino. At biglang lumabas sa screen ang familiar face. Ay si ex crush nga. Actually crush ko pa pala siya. Cute pa rin naman siya in a way. Pero just like the season, my feelings changed. Hindi na ako kinikilig at the thought na in-add niya ako? Hindi ako nagkukumahog na i-message siya. And certainly, I didn’t put any other meaning to the act, only that maybe ex crush wants more friends. Pero in fairness in-accept ko naman siya as a Friend sa Friendster. If you want to see, check out my Friendster account, hehehehehe. Then tell me what you think. Ay wag na pala sisikat pa siya. Hahahahaha.
Sometimes even I, am amazed at myself. Probably it’s just normal that people change. I guess the saying is true, that “The only constant thing in this world is change.”
Agree or disagree?
