Words on Wednesday

Hello My Little Ducklings !

I don't really have anything witty to say right now, so I will just talk about the latest happenings in my life.

I now take the light rail to work, and there are some interesting people I get to ride with. Last night, I saw some aspiring rapper try to pick up a girl. It turns out that he knew her, but my gawd he was a mess. He was talking really loud, and apparently nothing was sacred to him. This wanna be latino rapper with a knitted wool cap.

He was bragging how he's banging this black chick and she's such a freak, and how girls are comparing him to Tupac and how these girls want him I could not believe it. I was trying so hard not to laugh. The girl he was trying to talk to get into the pants of  was merely tolerating him.

I also get to deal with homeless guys that like to cough and make snorting noises and swallowing their phlegm instead of blowing their noses.

But last week was interesting. There was this guy dressed in business clothes looking aimlessly at the schedule. Turns out he was a tourist, and he was just so excited to be in Silicon Valley. First of all, I thought he was strange, because most tourists head straight to San Francisco. But no, this guy wanted to take pictures of all the major companies. He was so excited to be in Silicon Valley. I didn't want to spoil his fun, but I did tell him that it isn't what it once was, especially in venture capitalism. That we've gotten hit hard by massive layoffs and he seemed surprised by it all.

He was from Chicago and he was talking the lightrail to hopefully take pictures of companies like Google and Yahoo. So since my job was close by and on the same street as other major companies I offered to take his picture in front of where I work.

It turns out that he is probably going to get a job working for our city, I think in management. I could not believe that our city was recruiting people from other states. But he seemed like a nice person, so I wished him well and answered all his questions about housing prices and transportation. It would be interesting if I ran into him again. The honey moon of Silicon Valley would soon fade for him if he lived here.

Other than my adventures on the light rail, nothing else to really report. I will be taking a computer class this weekend to learn how to better use Excel. If I ever want to work in a law firm, I need to learn how to use it better. And let's just say that my Excel skill really suck ass. It's horrible, and I really need to do something about it.

Well, that is all for now my little helpless birdies. Please keep the victims of the massive earthquake in Haiti in your prayers. If you don't believe in prayer, at least please keep them in your thoughts. There are different beliefs out there. But ultimately, I believe in the power of prayer/thought and there is nothing to lose.

If you are going to donate, please make sure the organization is reputable. I was able to text HAITI to 90999 on my cellphone, and had no problems. I use Verizon, one of the major cellphone companies and the donation will end up on my cellphone bill. It sure beats entering my credit card number online or over the phone.

Also, the great thing about that method of donating is that you can change your mind. You can cancel if you need to, since it is a charge that is appearing on your cellphone bill.

Okay, so time for me to go.

Besitos y abrazos

Just telling it like it is said...

Wow what a lover he was...

Didn't know you aimed for 'witty' in your journal...

Aw c'mon we keed, we keed!

I wonder how cats like Rico Suave ever find the game to get in HIS OWN pants, let alone anyone elses!

People don't see what natives see. What drew him to SF is what he sees.

Donating by text is perfectly fine, but keep in mind that it will take a while before it gets put to use. That money could take over a month for it to reach those in need since it's not an instant transfer, and is donated once you pay your bill.

Regardless, it's a wonderful thing to do.

Good points Candice,

I am fine with it if it takes a while for my $ to get to Haiti. That is because not a whole lot is getting to the survivors anyway right now due to difficulties in getting to people.

Also, they will be needed the cash for a loooong time, so it doesn' matter to me how long it takes.

The people one meets on the public transport system. One could write a book.

Great train riding observations!

I have met some crazy and interesting people on metro...

Shelly Rayedeane said...

Yeah, what a wonderful dead lover he is.

I sent money to Haiti too.

I think everyone could send something. Hell, I'm living in my car right now and I still give to others.

I doubt you will see some rich fucker in the UK giving though. They didn't even pay half of the telephone bill they owed.

It is such a shame some will never see their lies and deceitfulness are what cause all the earthquakes in this world. Yes, energy gets transferred. It can not be destroyed. This time it got diverted to HAITI away from San Francisco.

Who is next? It is such a shame some people will learn the wrong they are doing until it is too late.

You want to know the real reason I'm homeless? I figured out something nobody is supposed to know about. According to the chaos theory, a butterfly flapping its wings in Brazil can create an earthquake or tornado in Houston, Texas. But what if such energy could be diverted? What if someone were to find that last butterfly and force it to move its wings?

Welcome to the story of my life. I could very well be the last butterfly.

I'm come back to stop something nobody should have been messing with to begin with.

I am so shocked so many people are so gullible. It doesn't matter though.

Some people will never listen until it is too late.

I know where I'm going when I die. I'm not to worried about my future.

The others are fucked though and they know just what they are doing. God works in mysterious ways though. Catch ya on the flip side.

And what if I told you I know the real reason John Travolta's son Jet is dead right now?

Don't mind me. I'm certain more people will just claim I'm crazy when I'm actually quite sane.

Please do take note at all the computers have shut down or had viruses lately at blogger.

Yes, there is a reason for that and me thinks karma is a motherfucker.

Ouch.

When I host visitors from out of town, I totally drive them by Yahoo, Apple, Google, Intel. They really do get a kick out of it.

Then we head to SF and have fun. :-)
