average everyday sane psycho

down with the heigh-ho
Problem at work today. It's difficult because the system I'm handling involves financial transactions that aren't within the company, so there's quite a lot of stake, including face. And when the oversight was discovered this afternoon, I was caught like a deer in headlights. It's a good thing, though, that the bosses here in the department are more understanding. After all, I'm not the actual user, who should have also seen the oversight. However, I still feel guilty. It's like, I should have known better, been more conscious of the details. Oh well. What's done is done. Shit hits the fan tomorrow.

probably because of that
This is what came out of my 'modern classic' movie quiz:

rum raisin, and things old
Zeester #2 gave me a tube of Revlon lipstick in Rum Raisin, apparently an excess birthday gift (apparently zeester is into pinks and glosses only). I do remember, though, at 21, I was wearing this exact same shade. Yes, eons ago. I remember it was one of the first shades of lipstick that I bought when I started working because it looked 'mature' bring modeled by Cindy Crawford (well that was at the tail-end of her Revlon contract)--or was it Niki Taylor?

Other items/brands that seem to have lasted for ages are Maybelline Great Lash mascara (and it's *still* in that same pink packaging!), Cover and Clean face powder (the only face powder that, even if left overnight without washing my face, doesn't result in a breakout the next morning), and St. Ives deep conditioner. Zeester #1 meanwhile, is still using the pink Johnson's toner that's already been discontinued, so she's so happy whenever she sees some on stock that she buys n bottles at a time.

smokey mountain
According to this article, a 'green' church will soon rise on Smokey Mountain, formerly the world's largest garbage dump, erstwhile testament to environmental waste problems and inspiration for the name of a teen singing group which sang socially relevant songs ("Mama was a maid/in London"). SVD priest Benigno Beltran says the church will have "solar panels... a water catchment system... waterless composting toilets and natural air-ventilation systems." It is estimated to cost PhP48M. Smokey Mountain is already partially rehabilitated, which is good news. I remember going there on immersion one time and practically passing out, olfactory-nerve-oriented that I am.

and then to the absolutely mundane
Am just glad that Gonuts Donuts is now open in the Greenbelt 3 food court. The two times I've been there, there have been no lines. Hurrah for that--or maybe people didn't know that it was open yet. As of a few weeks ago, it was still queueing time at their main branch at The Fort. But then, it's so much fun to watch the donuts being made!
