First of all, belated happy birthday yesterday to our CS graduate and erstwhile Digital Arts Club president Dwight!
It was no problem getting you that gift. I know you would enjoy it, and we share the WII spirit after all.
@@And again just to round out what happened last Sunday, I went to the South Woods area from Santo Tomas midmorning.
I started reading “Spoiled Rotten America” by Hollywood comedian Larry Miller (which reminds me I have yet to detail here about my latest purchases the past few weeks) then fell asleep until 3pm. No lunch, that is, until that time.
It was only then that I pushed through with what I had posted again in the micro blogging networks about my itinerary for that day, which was to go to Festival Mall. The movie I wanted to watch was not going to start until 550pm, so I went around shopping for stuff for the spa.
What’s funny about that is that on the next day, when I was back in the same mall, and in the same stores, we still go more stuff for the spa, such as an extendable feather duster and a folding laundry basket.
And right now I don’t even remember what I did buy last Sunday, except for the 600 letter stickers that I got for the gift wrapper of my gift to Dwight, and the stencil for letters for notices in the spa.
Ah yes, I also bought several powder detergents. Here it seems that the hard and fast rule that the largest or bulk purchase is the least expensive is not always true. Apparently, there is a market that caters to the medium size consumer, and gives them what seems to be a lot of bonus material, and that is what comes out as cheaper, in somewhat plain calculations, that is.
Besides, if the packs are one use each, then it is easier to quantify whether or not you are consuming properly.
After all, with things like powder detergent, buying in bulk means there will be times when you are consuming more than usual (as is the case when employees will do their own laundry) or sometimes less.
@@ One more thing: is it really such a great event if there was no anticipation built around it, and therefore it is obviously rushed?
This is especially if we are talking about student polls even if not, or especially if not, for student council president.
When was the vote cast? Does it really reflect the likes of the people or just those who care, of which there are only a few?
Yes, it is important to maintain tradition, but is it also just as important to maintain the standards of the previous generations?
Maybe the other generations would rather that the tradition should skip a year than be desecrated by those who obviously don’t care for the values that were advocated before, and reverently.
And since this will be the last time that I will have to do this, even though again it means that their poor planning skills has forced me to pass up another more important (for me) activity,
this time being the college faculty outing, then I can visibly and publicly show my displeasure or indifference.
