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.

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