My first journal for the year. Heh.
Last month I found out acting in front of a camera wasn't easy at all. Yep. Me. Nope. Not on TV.
I was picked to play this very important role that was supposed to represent all my co-managers in the company. It was to be shown in a nationwide managers' convention on four separate batches. Some sort of drama to depict a manager's state of mind in the form of an F1 race car driver who's about to compete in yet another championship race. I was pretty good, actually (so they say). Maybe I should consider.... nah.
Well, during these runs I've had the privilege of rubbing elbows with top management (who are involved in these conventions every year), had the pleasure of sharing the same table with them, eating the same catered food. I was introduced to this Russian Salad, containing potatoes and beets. Hmmm, very interesting. And I was fond of potato salad.
The next day I was in a panic after using the toilet because I thought there was blood.
I was pale (or at least mentally pale)
, what the hell happened to me? So I recalled deeply what I ate the previous day and the closest thing to red was the beets (although it was purple, but hell, I'll think of anything). I asked my sister to look it up on the net. It turns out that beet, for some people, leaves a red stain on their urine. Whew. Case closed.
Last year I posted a photo of my workspace and pointed my three Transformers figures on the shelf, which I acquired in March of 2009, mainly because they were on sale.
I got a bit crazy during the year and, yeah, now I have seventeen of them cramped up there. Way to go, old boy.
So how are you doing? Anything crazy you got for yourself last year (or this year)? There's got to be a time when you were holding this thing that you wanted and justified the purchase by saying "it's a gift for myself for working damn hard". Do tell me. It's alright. Let's talk about it and amuse ourselves.
Oh, and I got a new phone. Finally replaced my Sony Ericsson K610i. See? That old. Justified
