know your post office

i’ve been mildly chatty with our local post office personnel, since ive been receiving packages rather frequently for the past months. but today, they just delivered a package that was supposed to arrive sometime very late last year, or very early this year. good for them that: 1) they delivered the package, instead of giving me a notice to pick it up (the proper procedure); 2) and, i was asleep when the mailman arrived; yes, i would’ve shown him furious, eBay-related anger. not his fault personally, but its his departments neglect that took this package 2 months to get me, while it was just in their freaking office all the time.

i should NOT be finding myself ordering/bidding on anything online from now on. have to find time instead to actually use these toys.

concrete travel

Nakatikim ka na ba ng kinse años?

and the taxi i rode on to work was playing obscure, and really old synth-driven new wave songs.

turns

the job interview with another call center went off clean, except that they required one-year experience management experience for the position im applying for.

then i get some feedback from our operations team manager that they’d need people for the position i want, since a lot of people there are resigning.

oh crap.

grabbed myself a bundle of blank cdrs and a CD wallet, with a 200-cd capacity before going back to the office. this will be a long work-night.

new layout and the shivers

the new layout is fuelled by the want to impress interviewers at my job interview tomorrow, just in case they ask, and would want to see what i do online.

full site rehash is not done yet, but this will do for now.

take a visit at your local VCD-han

its an odd, but totally genuine feeling, that i proclaim how heartwarming it is to see the variety of local movies out on VCD (crappy format, but it will do; still prefer VHS to this) now. anything from joey de leon‘s she-man (poster? click here!), to long-lost restored gerardo de leon classic sanda wong.

equally fantastic is that vicor music has decided to re-release on cd some albums of its own. remember, i proudly bought the re-issue of sharon cuneta’s first album. now, the last time i saw didith reyes on anything was on a vinyl LP we once owned. yes, rock music snobs, i guess im not going to buy it for purposes of my father’s nostalgia only.
