The (double) ring
Retrieved my handphone after a shower and saw that I had 2 missed calls. Called back and a fax picked up. Then I realised the call was from my office. Called my partner and asked if she had called, and she said no. Checked the date and time of the call and it was from last Friday. Partner said that the same thing happened to her earlier in the week.

Creepy. The last tenant moved out after three months.
Jordan vs Jordan
Went to a function organised by SPH and bumped into people I'd rather not, including the immaculate one. Strange that she can email me but not even bother to say hi even though she clearly saw me. Ah well... so be it. Guess she was in her natural surroundings.

Also met some of the ass-lickers from my previous job, who was talking to me then abruptly disappeared when the vice-pres of the company appeared. Ah that's how you get ahead in the world.
Be a Mensch!
Finished watching the Billy Wilder movie The Apartment and it's brilliant. Some really witty lines and Jack Lemmon is amazing. The story is about this lonely guy who's forced to let his boss use his apartment for his trysts. Loan it from the library if you can.

A great line by Shirley McClaine's character:
When you're in love with a married man you shouldn't wear mascara.

Found this comic done by a local artist, FSC. Her website is here. Reminds one of Edward Gorey and Tim Burton's stuff.

She Dances Alone
Was at a hotel to interview this "homemaker" for a film script I'm doing. She was dancing with a young Filipino dude who was a pretty amazing dancer. The rich women of leisure fly these guys in to give dancing instruction and possible "extras". Quite an eye-opener, though only got back about 1:30 am.
Sonically Youth
Office's address is at Murray Street, which is the title of Sonic Youth's latest album. Is that cool or waht?

Maybe have a teeny-tiny "roomwarming" later in the month. It's small but it'll serve its purpose I guess.
Killing the Bug
Mexico City tries to eliminate the Beetle
I remember seeing hundreds of them crowding the roads. They did lend the city a lot of character.

He deserves it
Securities regulators have advised Henry Blodget, the former Internet stock analyst at Merrill Lynch, that he will probably be sued for fraud and other violations of securities regulations, according to someone involved in the investigation and a lawyer who has been briefed on it.

Mr. Blodget received the notice alerting him to possible action by NASD, the nation's largest securities regulator, in the final weeks of 2002, these people said. The activities that regulators have identified as questionable relate to Mr. Blodget's public support of companies that he was deriding in e-mail messages to associates at Merrill Lynch. In addition, these people said, regulators will argue that Mr. Blodget's research reports were inappropriately influenced by Merrill Lynch's investment bankers.
