Retrogression? In my younger days, in my parent’s small square of Kambating, I had a tiny --- please allow me to call it, "sandbox" to play in. There, in the confine of that tiny sandbox, my vision surpassed boundaries and stretched halfway across the world. Now, I’m halfway across the world, with a much larger sandbox to play in but, I can’t see two feet from across my face.

I’m not complaining, merely venting a bit. I understand the venomous extent of my responsibility. I set goals and prioritize what’s needed to get done and like well-oiled-self-defrost refrigerators; my team and I hum along to the rhythm. Like seaweeds, we dance to the direction of the undersea current and perform the dance to the best of our abilities. The system work! We’re cruising. We keep to our deadlines; at times, we’re even a little ahead of schedule.

Then, dang it… come this tornado of a vacuum cleaner, sucking up the wind from all around us and demonstrated this most preposterous show that leaves peacocks in heat in the dust.

“Watch your step with him”, they’ve warned me. “Nah, you guys maybe just caught him on a bad day.” I said, siding with the man.

Bad day my donkey! This morning Mr. Brown Noser decided it’s time to mess with me. We had a brouhaha. Yes, I actually raised my voice louder than his (shocked myself too because I've never done such a thing before but, I lost it! Completely!) and was this terrifyingly close to tell him to --- shut the "F" up and go "F" yourself --- only because, he threw the first few choice of “F” words in first himself. He’s bitter and vile. Goodness, what the heck did he have on his coffee that set him off like that? Whatever it was, it set me off too.

“Some days, are meant to be counted," Liz Gilbert says. "Others", she continues, "are meant to be weighed.” Well, today is neither because today is a day that is, strictly, for the birds. Being a promdi, it takes a lot of abuse to get me mad but this morning, I was beyond mad, I was livid!

Mr. Brown Noser, now I fully understand what the whispers in the air are about. You’re so incredible that you actually have a piece of crap permanently attached to your nose and forehead for that matter. You can’t just worm yourself into everything and everyone (scare us shitless) especially on a PROMDI who has taken her stance. Respect yourself first and all will fall and rearrange themselves into place. In case you didn't know, no one, I mean no one, likes to perform on command! We're not dogs, or tigers, or elephants, or white horses on a travelling circus show. We are human beings. Have some compassion and gentleness, but I guess these words are not in your vocabulary.

My good opinion of you is lost. I don't care who you are, what vehicle you drive, which side of Central Park your penthouse is located, whose initials are stamped on the back of your jeans. Please don't do it again. Don’t mess up with a promdi whose goal in life is simply to perform the best job she could possibly do in order to make a living.

I know that in most, if not all offices there is one, but, you Mr. Brown Noser is so efficient at brown nosing that you count for 10.

===========================

It's 5:30pm and I'm still stewing (can't help it). Mr. Brown Noser just pop his head at my door, told him: I have no apology to offer, then just like that he became the sweetest pie. Did I just got played again? By a professional brown noser? Time to get out and get some air.

Poor Mr. Brown Noser. The promdi from Kambanting is not just just. hahaha He finally found his match. Gapa awat-awat sa an kano? Pagtoo dili kubasan.

Mana Abb, I can relate. Me too had experienced that situation. But, keep calm sometimes. It looses your power.

Hi Pats.

Thank you Pats. I needed that laugh. :roll :roll

I'm changing his name from Mr. Brown Noser to The kid.

The kid is 23 years old! ](*,) Twenty three! Age wise for crying out loud, I could be his mother! :-D

The kid is SFB (Son of the Friend of the Big Boss). The kid’s biggest accomplishment in life by far is the thickness of his rolodex (elite connections) which is expected to generate business. In these 12 weeks that he’s been here, he has poked his nose at every corner where it doesn’t belong. He fought with designers, fabric buyers, trim people and the other day; he was into me like a bad rash arguing basic logistics.

Agree, the best weapon to defuse anger would have been silence but Pats, if I had chosen not to speak, I swear, it wouldn’t be pretty because my eyes were poised to pop out. Pats, labaw pa sa kubas. :-D Makig su-ngag (kabaw) na.

It’s hard to knit words to describe the kid exactly but if you can picture a cocky prince without a country? That’s the kid! Spoiled mega rich with supersized ego to boot!

By chance, we met at the elevator bank yesterday, we talked business then, to totally flush the anger out from my bloodstream, I told him that it’s not my intention or proposal that we get on well together but since we have to work at some level, we might as well be civil with one another. The kid joked and asked why I’m still simmering. I said, “Because you’re a royal pain in the neck and were entirely out of line. You not only blame but creamed me for Fed Ex’s decision to close the hub in Minneapolis because of the snowstorm 3 weeks ago! And if no one tells me, how was I to know that Mr. & Mrs. Silverstein’s daughter’s Bat Mitzvah was that weekend! I don’t control the weather and I don’t read mind.”

Pats, over the years, I’ve learned, I’m sure you do too that if we are convinced that we’re not in the wrong, it is most gratifying to speak our mind and hold on to our conviction. After all, when it comes to matter of opinion we are all equal: he has his, you have yours and I have mine.

The kid gave me a two-handed handshake :-D and Pats… this kid has the softest scrubbed and polished hands :shock: I’ve ever shook and I’ve shaken quite many. :-D He must visit a hand salon once a week! :-k

It's hard to stay mad when there are so much beauty, nice friends (you’re certainly one of them), red velvet cupcakes and nice hands to shake in the world --- there, my poetic symmetry of the day. :-D

Mouli kaw isab koman mahal na adlaw?

My fault then I couldn’t see straight when I typed the rant. That or maybe :-k William Jordan and his “Divorce Among the Gulls” (not batch 81) the An Uncommon Look at Human Nature” that made me speak in --- riddles? Motou baya lugar kinta ako kanimo? You read what's before, after, above, below and in between the lines :-D .

Abbs,

When I was reading your post atop, I thought Mr Brown Noser, now The Kid, was the same guy you told me years back when you had your Jonah Day. Now it proved he wasn’t.

Much that I totally conformed to the approached you used to handle the situation but grossly enamoured of how you put it into words. Breathtaking, like the calm waves undulating in Tandag beach. Brilliant!

May ako similar experience nan yaon which all ended up having my adversary and myself became the closest of friends at work. She was a German work colleague and has now finished her contract with us, but we remained good friends.

This German had once commented when she heard me sneezed at our bathroom. I just ignored her thinking I annoyed her with my booming sneeze as I had a very bad colds. One day, we had a casual talk about sprucing up our gardens, etc etc. when suddenly she uttered words that were so repugnant to me. She remarked for me not to be overly worried about it considering my background (coming from a poor country). Min paso gayod an ako talinga! I answered back that led to a fierce altercation. I uttered words too that put her off guard, work wise. I then urged her to come with me to our big conference room and continue the squabble just so nobody could hear us. I told her I may have come from a poor country but never poor in morals, education, happiness and most of all contentment. Kasi siya way happiness, despite the huge figures in her bank account and 20 years na sila wa magkinitaay nan iya anak who happens to live only 11/2 hours by plane from her. And up to now she still doesn’t know how to deal with her idle life, devoid the capacity to find a partner let alone a husband.

After the fracas, she offered a very sincere apology and hugged me. We moved on. As I’ve said we became good friends that she maintains her contact by texting and sending me e-mails. Most of all she keeps inviting us to have a skinny dip in her swimming pool, he he. See the turn of events.

Insom,

You remembered. :roll That was Alex Fair, unfortunate his personality was the exact opposite of this last name :cry:. He’s no longer with the company. A year ago when Mr. Mandelbaum retired from the Senior Board, the Big Boss (BB) installed Mr. Klien to replace him. According to the rumor mill at 55th Street, Alex wanted to assume Mr. Klien’s vacated position and when he didn’t get the job, he stormed into the BB’s office and within 5 minutes, Alex was escorted by the BB himself outside his door.

In Alex’s presence, the BB barked at his secretary to advise IT Dept. to freeze Alex’s access to our computer system and the BB wanted Alex’s personal stuff pack out of his office and ship to his house at once. When the BB barked orders, action is instantaneous. “Mr. Alex Fair’s affiliation with this company and its subsidiaries has now cease to exist,” was what we heard trickle down from the 15th Floor.

Apparently, our dear Mr. Alex dug his hole quite deep enough that he simply had fallen into it. :-k

For us simple folks, it was poetic justice at its best. :D

He disliked me, period. I borrowed “Jonah Day” from the Anne of Green Gables book series, when Anne Shirley refers to a day when everything goes wrong. It fit perfectly because every time Alex tormented me, I certainly feel like Jonah and he, the whale.

He came by at our location (16East - he was based in L.I.C.) days after the firing wearing a “visitor pass” I suppose. I was out and he left me his new calling card (he opened his own consulting firm) with a note saying that he just wanted to say goodbye and--- this is what got to me: “I hope what passed between us are now water under the bridge.” :shock: I showed the note to my boss and told her “I won't mind burning the bridge” 8-[ and to my surprise, my boss responded, “yap...good riddance”.

As Jimmy Durante says it most eloquently --- “Be nice to people on your way up because you meet them on your way down.”

---------------

Hahahahah Insom, I'm curious to know what's classmate take on skinny dipping? :-D :-D

K-Spy,

Sorry you lost me :cry: :cry: By any chance do you mean, "Up In the Air" where Clooney got an oscar nomination for best actor? If so, no... I haven't had the pleasure of seing it. Laong ni Lu tagadan dakan kono namo pag gawas sa NetFlex.

"Remember Me" haven't seen that one either and that is because Alexa and her friends, as loyal Harry Potter fans believe that if they ally with another brit actor, it would be a betrayal on Harry = Daniel Radcliffe (it's really complex because Edward aka Robert Pattinson played Cedric Diggory in the Harry...Goblet of fire) so they switched from team Edward to now team Jacob (The Twilight Saga). Therefore, anything associated with team Edward is now officially banned in this household. Ay... things we need to know and deal with as parents of teenagers :-D

===================

MADZ AS PARENTS TO TEENAGERS ---to keep the peace, I realize that we need to be creative. Study and learn to speak their language and play their game a little. Kay kon dili Lord tabang makaboang. :x

abb,

wahahahaha......where the hell did "AND ABOVE" come from? yup, i was referring to UP IN THE AIR. it's a must-see, please tell lu.

abb, i just came from watching another wonderful movie here in davao (i flew in this morning), THE BLIND SIDE. my goodness! i cried buckets because the movie's too close to home.

i wanted meryll to get the Oscar but i had to give it to sandra because she sure did give the finest performance of her career. (although the best performance, to me, was the one turned in by the mother of Michael Oher. a real tour de force!)

K-Spy,

"Up in the Air" noted. It's on the list. :-D

I put the onus on my son to come with me to see "Blind Side" the night it opened. :-D It was pay back time for his forcing me to take him to see Transformers despite my splitting headache.

Dude, I love Sandra Bullock. Love her and with Tim McGraw, the gorgeous bad boy of country music as Sean Touhy? Before the trailers were out, before the reviews were written, Blind Side was a must see movie for me.

I rooted for Sandra and was ecstatic she won the coveted statute of that evening (did you see her silver gown?). Her performance on the “The Proposal” together with the delicious (take a look at their “bare-butt” encounter bare as in 100% au naturel) Ryan Reynolds (playing Andrew Paxton) was Oscar worthy too but, alas it was categorize as a comedy. Just the same, Golden Globe and Satellite Awards took notice so I was happy she got a nomination for her portrayal of Margaret Tate, NYC book editor extraordinaire. She was prefect for that role.

Don’t worry about Meryl Streep she’s pocketed some Oscars already, (“Sophie’s Choice” = Best Actress and “Kramer vs Kramer” = Best Supporting Actress) plus she's gotten numerous academy awards nominations. That woman is brilliant, she's an icon in her own right, she knows it and I don’t think she mind losing to Sandra.

Back to Sandra, she’s so good. To pair with her Oscar, she won two Razzies (worst actress performance the day before the oscars) for her excellent (excellent is with air quotes) representation of Mary Harowitz in “All About Steve”. Ay…that movie was so hideous I devoured a large order of popcorn with extra butter before the movie was half way through. She said she took the part because it was super fun wearing short, short skirt and red boots. :-D There's "Miss Congeniality" for you! :-D

“Blind Side” you remember the scene at the restaurant (Leigh Ann and her friends having lunch)? The personal appearances of those ladies are mirrors of our southern belles (women the consultants clothe in the central part of the country). I didn’t thought about it until Laura, the lady I work with, brought it to my attention.

Great movie and I’m sure I’ll watch it, and will cry over it again when it comes out on blue ray.

==========================

S.J.: "Enough with the rugby shirts. You look like a giant bumblebee". :-D :-D

Or was it
Leigh Ann: " He's got feet as quick as hiccups"

Or
Leigh Anne Tuohy: Don't lie there and pretend you are not thinkin' the same thing as me.
Sean Touhy Sr.: Fine. Tell me what you're thinkin', so that I'll know whats supposed to be on my mind."

Sorry can't help it. These lines makes southern accent sooooooo appealing. :-D

abb,

hahahahahahahaha.....all the lines i love, especially the ones coming from SJ. super entertaining, that kid!!!

as for the southern belles, let's hear it from leigh ann again: SHAME ON YOU!

my tear ducts went on maximum overdrive when leigh ann asked michael why is he going to the gym and whether he has a home. best part of the movie for me!!!!

and as usual, kathy bates was pure bliss to watch! there were shades of MISERY when she led the unwitting Michael to go to Ole Miss instead University of Tennessee.

K-Spy,

Hahahaha….ikaw gayod…”SHAME ON YOU!” indeed.

Wondered if she was the lady honking (when Leigh Ann dropped off SJ and Big Mike in front of the school?) “Don’t get your panties in a wad!” Leigh Ann said looking at her rearview mirror. :-D I love it. Not so typical southern belle behavior. Southern Belle, an archetype for a young woman of the American Old South’s upper class, or otherwise known as DEB or DEBUTANTE. One thing I do know is that if they think you don’t belong? They’ll surely make you feel like a --- “fly in the milk”. :-D But if you prove to them that you're worth their while, you'll eventually bleed them out of their bitterness :-D. They're intimidating but quite sweet. This, I say from experience. 8-[

My best part of the movie was when, AGAIN, Leigh Ann was preparing the couch into a bed and she asked Michael if he wanted to stay so she can find some time to figure out a bedroom for him. Leigh Ann muttering, “because look at this, you’ve practically ruined a ten thousand dollar couch!”

Leigh Ann: Do you want to stay here, Michael?
Michael: I don't want to go any place else.
Leigh Ann: Well alright then.

This was then followed by a scene --- Leigh Ann and Michael were inside the bedroom newly created and Leigh Ann showed Michael his own desk, chest o’drawers (oh love the accent :-D ) a night stand, a lamp, and an alarm. She commented about Sean saying all the pro athletes use futons if they can’t find a bed big enough. But the futon's frames are ugly and she’s not about to let “one of those” (ugly things) in her house so she got him something nicer.

Michael: It’s mine?
Leigh Ann: Yes, Sir.
(Michael mumbled something)
Leigh Ann: What?
Michael: Never had one before.
Leigh Ann: What? A room to yourself?
Michael: A BED.
Leigh Ann: Well, you have one now.

K-Spy ----whaaaaaaa…. This was the kicker. :cry: :cry: :cry: I cried - - - deluge with no stopping. bwuhuhuhuhuhuhu bwuhuhuhuhuhu :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:


The lines I like best were the football back story narrated by Leigh Ann, in full southern drawl, at the opening of the movie:

"There's a moment of orderly silence
before a football play begins.

Players are in position,
linemen are frozen,
and anything's possible.

Then, like a traffic accident,
staff begins to randomly collide.

From the snap of the ball to the snap of the first bone
is closer to four seconds than five.

One Mississippi.

Joe Theismann,
the Redskins quarterback
takes the snap and hands off
to his running back.

Two Mississippi.

It's a trick play, a flea flicker,
and the running back tosses the ball
back to the quarterback.

Three Mississippi.

Up to now the play's been defined
by what the quarterback sees.

It's about to be defined
by what he doesn't.

Four Mississippi.

Lawrence Taylor is the best
defensive player in the NFL
and has been from the time he stepped
into the field as a rookie.

He will also change the game of football
as we know it.

And we'll look at it
with the reverse angle one more time.

And I suggest if your stomach is weak
you just don't watch ...

Legendary quarterback Joe Theismann
never played another down of football.

Now, y'all would guess
that more often than not
the highest paid player on
an NFL team is the quarterback.

And you'd be right.

What you probably don't know
is that more often than not
the second highest paid player is,
thanks to Lawrence Taylor,
a left tackle.

Because, as every housewife knows,
the first check you write
is for the mortgage
but the second is for the insurance.

And the left tackle's job
is to protect the quarterback
from what he can't see coming.
To protect his 'BLIND SIDE.' "

Phewww... :shock: 8-[
