smokin', rockin' geeks

I went a week without nicotine. It was a promise, that I would give it up, but I could not sustain it. At least I tried. The last time I supposedly quit, I was nicotine-free for three months. It was easy to not be around the smoking buddies at the time, but now that the SO is back in my life, it's harder to quit. And I actually experienced what seemed to be withdrawal symptoms. Sitting here now, online with Tori Amos in the background and a cigarette in hand, is like sitting with an old friend that you're glad just to hang with.

I'm not sure who posted this in the Pinoyslayer blog, but this site rocks.

I miss working at StingyCo. Rather, I miss not working during work time at StingyCo. Things were a bit laid-back before I left, no major projects. I would leave at 5:15 and not have work left over. Now, at IntlConsultingFirm (which milks you for what you're worth... much like a--factory?!), the earliest I leave is 7pm. Granted, we're in the middle of a project, but I'm starting to get sucked into this vortex of late nights, even if I'm one of the first people to arrive each morning. The strange thing is, I'm starting to really get into it. Today was heavy testing day and I did a case with 45 parameters. It's challenging. Geeks for hire, anyone?

Filched this from Deepa:

You Belong in London

A little old fashioned, and a little modern.

A little traditional, and a little bit punk rock.

A unique woman like you needs a city that offers everything.

No wonder you and London will get along so well.

all anew

First new blog post in two weeks. Full of new stuff. Promise.

new job
Finally started an IntlConsultingFirm. Am still undecided on a sobriquet. Maybe when I get to stay there for a month. Am still trying to adjust. It's a whole different culture from StingyCo; and I came in the middle of a hectic season when days bleed into nights, with a new system and a whole different set of methodologies to learn. It's exciting and nerve-wracking at the same time.

new old SO
Old news, but still. At the risk of sounding mushy, am loving him more and more each day.

new member of the family
After a looong trip to Novaliches, we came back with Dallas.
Dallas 1 Dallas 2
Some dogs exist merely to be cute, eh?

new text-stalker
Someone started texting me vulgar texts about wanting to f*ck me badly. The scary thing is this person knew my name and that I worked for StingyCo. Sigh. As of the moment he or she (I can't discount that it's a she, after all, some people's girlfriends have stuck it to me worse) has stopped texting but if things get worse I may have to consider changing my number. The SO is just concerned that this person might graduate to actual stalking, although I feel it's highly unlikely.
