Should Quit Twittering and Start Writing

I am having a writer's block. It's that time of the year when we, lowly servants of the capitalist world, have to write self-assessment on our performance at our jobs. I'd say this self-review has no value since when the bosses get to it, it doesn't really matter what you think about your performance, it's what they think about you.

In my line of work, it is a possibility that you do a good job but it corresponds to a negative result. Think about it this way. You prove them that it is just not feasible to do whatever big picture stuff they want to achieve but they still count it against you because it is not feasible. Get it? Of course, worse things can happen. This is when you can not even prove the feasibility of the project. In that case, you're probably out as a bottom 10%-er.

Anyway, back to the writing process, it also got me chatting thinking.

me: Buu, I hate writing about myself

what are those FB, Twitter and blog posts about?

D***: review?

me: yeah
FB, twitter, and blog posts do not turn into financial advantage
while review does!
hmmm...why is it so hard then?

D***: cos you got to convince someone
to buy it

me: hahahahhahahahah
so it has to have a certain quality
and definitely not silly stuff like bashing Hubbostrich (tm)?

D***: lol

me: what an epiphany

“Breadwinning and the art of writing must be kept absolutely apart.”

Suffice it to say, Franzie's thesis doesn't apply to my situation.

San Bruno Fire Lawyers

Yesterday, I mentioned to Hubbostrich that before long there will be a lot of advertisements offering "helps" for victims to represent them on San Bruno fire cases. It's troubled me that these lawyers are going to make so much money on top of other people's sufferings!

And they didn't wait long. While searching for San Bruno updates on Google news this morning, three of such sponsored links popped out. Dismay.

Hubbostrich Bashing # 258

I was simply saying thank you for this birthday present by posting it on T******.

Birthday 2010  021

Little did I know that hilarity ensued from my presyush followers.

@d***s******: @xinda_ woopitty whoo! wait, why is hubbostrich shirtless behind you?
@i***a*h***: @xinda_ @d***s****** AHAHAHAHA!! PHOTOBOMB!!!

In my defense, it was really hot, notice the sliding door was wide opened. Also, that's pretty much how Hubbostrich rolls and with a beer glass in his hand. Oh, my big fat redneck marriage.
