show me the money

February 28, 2007

i just cashed my first paycheck. i didn’t get a full salary. i was paid only 30% cause i only worked less than 2 full weeks this month. my current 30% was my full 100% salary in 2002. and in 2000 it was barely 2 months pay.  my full monthly income will also be 50% more than my monthly income in 2006, extra large LV Manhattan bag here comes mommy.

technology murder

February 20, 2007

this morning my virgin notebook died on me. my 1st day in the office i was presented with a brand new shiny IBM/Lenovo laptop. with a fresh hardware smell and never before touched keypad. i unwrapped it from the box and set it up nicely on my desk. this baby was home. this morning i came to the office and before i had the chance to greet her good morning she goes into technical shock. poor baby. she didn’t yet justify her manufacturing cost. i’ve been on the phone with UK with our techy-s, and they are having a hard time reviving her. they juiced her with update ivy. pumped her with anti virus dosages but shes still not 100% responsive. oh the poor thing!!!

employee of the month

February 19, 2007

after 12 weeks of mental and physical vegetation i got up yesterday put on my brown suit hugged my new LV handbag hopped in my designer shoes and stepped right into my new office-building elevator. right up to the 13th floor. being addicted to 9 to 6 work routine the past 12 weeks felt more like 12 months. 4 months in beirut praying for a drop pf rain and a cold breeze. 8 months in dubai praying for shelter from rainstorms and the freezing winds. decorating the house. picking up the pieces of a long forgotten gym schedule. shopping till my savings run dry. hiring my 1st full time employee, live in house help. now im back to the field. grabbing my one minute glory. sweating for my one minute fortune. giving my days to get back a future.
