Damn Moronic Tendencies Part Deux

You know that you are head over heels and in too deep when nothing that a particular other person do is wrong.

Think moronic smile again.

What, then, would your reactions be when disparaging statements are directed towards this other person by, say, colleagues? Senior ones at that?

What if such statements - which silently stings you to no end - keeps coming?

What if there comes a time when you can no longer keep a straight face when the verbal abuse reaches a crescendo that could not be tolerated?

When any response on your part would tell all and literally throw everything  - and I do mean EVERYTHING - out of loop?

Would you put everything on the line?

Especially when you know full well that doing so will not change the fact that you and that person CAN never be together. EVER.

So, will you?

I don't know.

I know enough though of moments where I filtered everything else that doesn't matter out in toto and when time ticks the slowest.

And that scares me in more ways than one.

A scene from Cyrano De Bergerac (1990) - He did. Put everything on the line for her.

Damn Moronic Tendencies

So I walked under a bus, I got hit by a train

Keep falling in love which is kinda the same

I’ve sunk out at sea, crashed my car, gone insane

And it felt so good I wanna do it again…


Bachelor girl got it damn right.

Thank God I handled it better this time around.

In a way, that is. 

Still addicted to the emotional intensity, though.


Smiling like a moron even as I type this. 

I’ve sunk out at sea, crashed my car, gone insane

And it felt so good I wanna do it again…

Moron, and unfortunately, loving every moment of being so.

Life's a Splurge


This month - and contrary to my usual interests - I've splurged on books.

I've bought Fergie's Leading, The Story of Alibaba and Mitch Albom "Frankie Presto".

The problem now is finding the time to read them.

I've done a few pages of Leading and I'm thinking I could zoom through perhaps in one sitting this weekend.

Leading is written is a laid back manner and the tie-up to football and Man United makes it easier to read, as compared to "6 ways to Kill Innovation" which I bought last month which on hindsight was a waste of good money.

Should have just bought a trade paper back of something from the comic lineups.

Anyway, I've ranted about the prices of book going crazy, so I am thankful for MPH's celebratory discounts in blunting the impact.

All three books came with 20 - 30% discount, by the way.

Okay, I must admit that I did sneak in DD's Reborn by Andy Diggle and you know what, I love the short transit from the all heavy duty writing of Brubaker, Bendis and (even) Waid.

Perhaps its the one off storyline. Or the simple and largely overused plot.

I'm thinking the stress of routine work / life cycle is getting to me that such diversions are most welcomed.

Hokay again. Going back to work soon and leaving you with this:
