Work Politics November 26, 2006

Eric is pushing out his requests during Mark’s vacation.  I finished the request during Mark’s absence since it’s just easy crosstabs.  Eric is happy, but Mark is having trouble of the way I handle the requests.  He wants me to have vendor runs the numbers and is assuming that I send the request out.  Of course, I didn’t.  I mean, it’s just a simple crosstabs run and it will take two days to turn around if I ask DR to do it.  It’s an inefficient way to do.  I guess if you don’t know how to run numbers, that’s the way all the requests will be handled.  But, when you know how to run numbers, you don’t even think about sending it out at all. 

There is always unnecessary battles you fight at work.  So meaningless…  It doesn’t matter how good you are at your job.  If you don’t play the game, you are always in trouble…

Jen finally decides to invest in a small condo instead of the 4 stories business building.  It’s quiet a relief for everyone since it’s much cheaper to do and she can afford the down payment herself.  The condo is completed, furnished, and ready to rent.  The rent can go to the mortgage directly.  She can easily pay it off without any stress.  Such a daddy’s girl, completely the same formula that dad uses. 

Can’t wait to get out of my mortgage…Need to figure something out to make more moeny as well…Can’t just depend on salary anymore nowaday…

Tania did a good job with the turkey.  Christian finally reached the 30.  Julian is still the cuttest thing ever.  Athos is still happy with Chicago life and is looking for house in the downtown area to settle.  Jaime loose 40 pounds in 3 months.  A completely new and hot person.  Funny, on the other hand, is gaining so much weight lately.  It’s very worrysome.  I finally have to nag on her weight.  Peter is still trying really hard to find a new job.  Wish him the best luck.  And I, still the same me.  Of course, we miss Jen and Ya-Ching this year.

Spending Thanksgiving with the people I love makes me feel thankful.  After all these years, no matter where we are and how much has changes in our life, I feel thankful that we are still trying to have this special dinner together.

I feel thankful to be able to share life with them through all these years.  Thankful for the uncoditional supports from my sweatest sisters Jen and Funny.

Wow!  such a cute picture.  Finally see the lucky guy.

I guess I am the last one to go.  So much pressure now.  I hope the girls don’t nag me to death when I go home for the wedding.  I guess it’s good that I am making it short.
