surprise surprise

i got sort of a promotion today, well, I was shock to hear the news, so it was a pleasant surprise. never expect to get it so soon tho, so like Sunshine said, I must be really blessed ... and I am real glad that she is planning a celebration. still waiting for the shock to wear out ...

over a sandwich and latte, a friend and colleague revealed that he would be leaving the job for greener pastures ... it was a mixed feeling to hear about his impending departure as we met each other again in the firm after a number of years, and he did back stabbed me at one point ... but I would say that I am sad overall. once upon a time, we were hanging out together playing football and wrecking the landscaping in college, and did all the idiotic things together, and I would want to remember him for that, and not the back-stabbing. well, youthful pride and ambitions do hurt friendships, but we all need time to grow up. for every oxygen breathing soul, there are times that we come to certain crossroads, where we were made to decide on a path, and like all crossroads, we'll only know if we will regret after the crossroads. most of the time, we change course because we are unhappy, but who would really leave a job or a relationship or some place when we are most happy with it ... but being a pessimist-non-conformist, I would say that the best time to leave is when u are happiest, so all that's left are good memories. well, i've digressed, in any case, my friend leave because he chose to try something new rather than to rest on the laurels of success and security ... I agree with him, don't waste your youth, this is the time to try and fail and try again ... all the best my friend, you'll be missed.

holding hands ...

its was an hour's ride home in my red wagon, in light drizzles, we just held hands and enjoy each other's company as we took a slow drive home. no 'special music' tonight, just soundtracks from "One Fine Day" sunshine tried a folk-lorish method of curing headaches, which will did work to a certain extent. But I guess it was the quiet company that took a bit of my monday headaches away. well, sometimes its the little moments and the simple things that makes the difference ... 


as usual, tis monday and my monday headache is back, hoped it would remain a monday headache. somehow, there's always a pile-up at the in-tray, somehow there'll always be bad traffic jams, somehow, some colleagues are especially talented in being a a**-h*** on mondays. or perhaps tis just a state of mind ... hmmmm ... #yawn# oh well, it was especially bad to-monday due to the lack of sleep over the weekend #thanks buddy!#, and the fact that I had ... about 30 dreams last night, some of which were really bazaar, like having dinner with sunshine and her mother in some bazaar restaurant-cum-food factory and being grilled #me, not the food# ... being a cab-driver and getting into a bad accident 3 sec after starting work. what is wrong with me ... i need to sleep.
