ANOTHER CROSSROAD

 

 

I am sorry that I have not been posting as often as I did before. The reason – I am confused. I am in another crossroad in my life and I do not know which path to take.  

Rumors have been circulating that our Department is going to close. When I first heard of it, I made  a big joke that I jinx everything I touch. My first office in Riyadh closed after 9 years of operation, I transferred to another Department shortly thereafter. After 5 months in the said department, Head Office requested that I join them. It was a big move but I took the offer and moved to Alkhobar. And now that I am stable here, enjoying the work and my stay, it looks like my jinx has finally made itself felt.

I made the joke. But even I am not laughing.

As of the moment, I am checking out other options, but it seems that the most obvious option and the scariest as well is the one I will eventually take.

I might end up going home.


NAKIKI EMOTE LANG

My Colleague Albert brought his laptop this morning to download a new Anti Virus. While he was downloading, nagpatugtog siya ng songs from his laptop. Nagulat ako sa mga song selections niya. I was surprised in a good way kasi I liked the songs that he played. And since we were at the office, he didn’t turn up the volume. So I was straining to hear the songs that were playing until I found myself na nakatunganga na lang concentrating on the songs at in fairness nag eemote ako. Hahahahaha. Natawa ako sa sarili ko.


THINGS THAT GO BUMP IN THE NIGHT

 

I am home alone.

Its comforting that I only clean the dirt I make and the only noise I hear are the noises I make plus the TV ofcourse.

Last week Tuesday – Me and old Flatmate

Wednesday – Me, Dennis, Robert, Rommel and old Flatmate

Thursday – Me, Dennis, Robert, Rommel and a half a dozen transients from Riyadh

Friday, Saturday, Sunday – I’m Home Alone

Being alone has a lot of advantages lemme tell you and that includes walking around the house in my Birthday suit. But when its dark and quiet at night, the faintest bumps are a source of my paranoia. I make sure everything is locked, but even that does not do anything to ease my ever vivid imagination.

New flatmate is set to move in on Thursday so that gives me two more days to be Home Alone. And the thought isn’t comforting for me.


Free Rice

 

Do you like to have fun with your vocabulary? Would you like to help Feed the Hungry? Then head over to www.freerice.com and play their word game. For every correct answer you get, they donate 10 grains of rice through the United Nations. 10 grains? I know it doesn’t sound a lot but the more you play, the more correct answers you make then the more grains are added. The more you play the game, the more clicks you make, the more hits they get and the more revenue they make to give away rice. Alright I think I made sense there. I’ve played the game myself, managed to stay for a long time but then they give me a word that is totally unknown to me. As you get the words right, you move up to the next level, they have 50 levels, and I am not aiming to get that high but it was worth my morning.

So if you’re not too busy at work, go to www.freerice.com. Its fun and you get to help out in the process. Just don’t blame me if it eats your whole morning ok. I think the makers of this site intended for people to have fun but most importantly, to help out. Go to the site and tell me all about it ok.


RUSH

23102007184.jpg23102007185.jpg231020071761.jpg

 I didn’t get a chance to relax today. Not even a cigarette break. Calls just didn’t stop and I was at a mad rush to confirm all my pendings. I am off tommorow so I usually finish off whatever pendings I have so the guys who are on duty would not have a hard time with my bookings. Its bad enough that they  have to handle all the calls, but if in case I have anything pending then they would have to analyze my bad handwriting and whatever calculations I have in my files. The worst case scenario is if they had a difficult time – they might call and ruin my extended weekend sleep. But busy as I was, I still took time out to play with my cameraphone.

Thank God Its Wednesday.
