This day in history from:

Crumplers and Sharks

As I walked around TriNoma today with some friends, I noticed the Crumpler Store there was already open.

I walked in and was greeted by friendly staff. They allowed me to browse their merchandise more intently that what I am used to. They were also very convincing. They almost convinced me to buy a laptop bag worth about two month's minimum wage.

They better be friendly and convincing, I figured, because I think I could pay for all their salaries and the store overhead for the day if I purchased even their least expensive bag.

Well, almost. I figured, I really did not need the bag and/or I need the money I would have spent on it for more important things. And I do have a more than adequate bag (actually, I have two: the Targus neoprene bag that came with Scarlett and a medium-sized Samsonite Sahora backpack).

Someday, probably, when I have money to burn.


Just finished watching the second episode of Shark. I actually dozed off when I got back home today (I was dead tired when I got back, because I walked off my anguish about the Crumpler bag). Fortunately, I set my wonderful new TV to turn itself on at the appointed time and I remembered to park the TV at the correct channel before it turned itself off.

I was particularly struck by the final scene between Stark and his daughter.

"I am your father," Stark said.

"Yeah, but I don't trust you."

Woah! That's hard to swallow but true. Even if Stark has been with his daughter for a longer time. Or has taken care of her since birth. We still have to earn our children's trust.

I'm beginning to wonder if I will have a similar conversation with Bea in the future...

Anyway, have a pleasant long weekend. Holiday economics at work, again. As if it works.

Side Prayers

Lord Jesus,
Teach me to be generous,
Teach me to serve You as You deserve
To give and not to count the cost,
To fight and not to heed the wounds,
To toil and not to seek for rest,
To labor and not to ask for reward,
except that of knowing
That I do Your Holy Will. Amen

May every word I speak be from Your Truth...
I ask come from Your Wisdom...
May every case I handle receive Your Guidance...
May every heart, every life I touch, feel Your Love.

And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying,
"Oh, that You would bless me indeed,
and enlarge my territory,
that Your Hand be with me,
that You would keep me from evil,
that I may not cause pain."

So God granted him what he requested.
