Bar exams results allegedly out tonight…

Well, the 2005 bar exams results will be out (or is already out) tonight.

Good luck to those who took it last September. Personally, I'm watching out for three persons I know. Two of them, our associates and one, the person who assists me in my government consultancy…. I hope they pass.

For those who try to access the Supreme Court's website this time of year, good luck also. This has bandwidth problems this time of year. And it's also useless for them to acquire the extra only to be used once a year… So check it tomorrow morning. It will probably be accessible then…

I will just refer you to something I wrote sometime last year

(PS. You can download the 2005 bar exams results here…)

Pinning the tail on the ass…

Why are we so pre-occupied with gambling?

For that matter, why are we pinning our hopes on gambling? That’s just money flowing out of one pocket into another.

We should be pinning our hopes on manufacturing and services. In that way, we really get someone else’s money (aka foreign funds) and not merely let the present amount circulate and get redistributed among ourselves.

And there’s is still no substitute in getting somewhere in life through hard work.

I know this even if I’m not trained in economics. How come our economist leader does not know this?

Black Friday Protest Shirt, v. 2

Had to grab this from Stepping on Poop.

This new version of the Black Friday shirt specifically addresses the Black Friday fiaso some days back:

and click here for the fine print.

I hope Micketymoc does not mind…

Eager Beaver

Look what the eager beaver police got instead…

Instead of praise, it got ridicule.

Instead of looking distinguished, it looked stupid.

Instead of downplaying recent events, the very thing they are trying to supress even got more publicity.

Backfired on their faces.

Two Concerns… well actually one…

I have two concerns for today:

1. Secretary Claudio, in effect, is now telling us what to wear. What’s next? Pink is prohibited?

2. DOJ mulling dropping charges against 3 GIs over the Subic rape case. Do they need all the manpower they could get to play fashion police?

The Poisoner

By John H. Trestrail III, RPh,FAACT, DABAT

The Borgias, DeMedicis and all those past—
You may have thought you had seen the last.

But we posioners are still around today,
And if you miss my crime, I’ll get away.

The body lies there neat and clean,
as the cause of death is seldom seen.

And the coroner may take time to pause—
is the death due to a natural cause?

An autopsy or tox screen may reveal death’s why,
but I hope the case will just slip by.

My crime is quiet and well thought through.
For you’re used to violence–Can I fool you?

The event’s rarity is on my side,
For I count on you burying my homicide.

And though I roam free ’round the nation,
I live in fear of an exhumation.

The clues I leave may be hard to find,
you see, to me, I have a superior mind.

My weapons are there before your eyes,
But they are so very small- of molecular size.

I don’t think you’ll have a notion,
for mine is murder in slow motion.

It gives me time to just slip by,
and create my perfect alibi.

Where to look for me isn’t clear.
I may be far, or I may be near.

I could be a stranger, though it is quite rare,
for I’m probably related to the victim there.

I chose the place, the means and time,
for poisoning is usually a household crime.

The knowledge gained by my living close,
made it so very easy to deliver the dose.

Seeing it as poisoning would be profound,
but I think you’ll miss it as you look around.

I’m a different kind of killer as you can see.
I am a POISONER—can you catch me?

Actually, I was already back Friday afternoon and made a few comments on some blogs.

The planning session did not really go pretty well. Actually, it was a waste of time.

And instead of R&R, all I got was more pressure. It’s pretty hard having the boss as your roomate. The only time I stopped working was when I shut my eyes…

And yes, I brought Jessica but I forgot to bring her charger…

Hence, I did not even touch a computer for that time, let alone surf the net.

When I got back, I was so depressed I could not blog. Depressed not only with the way things are turning out personally but also with recent events.

Anyways, I had some personal business to attend to yesterday and I just got back in time for choir. Choir went pretty well.

Now I plan to do nothing for today. But check out this link on the 36 Stratagems as an alternative (but not totally opposite) to Sun Tzu’s Ancient Art of War. It’s an interesting read.

Let’s see what tomorrow brings though…
