Working Late

I gotta learn my lesson. Never utter the sentence "looks like it's going to be a slow week" in reference to work. It always comes back to bite you in the ass.

We were finally able to do a team activity. For a while there it seemed like fortuitous events were conspiring to stop us from having any kind of team activity. But we kinda snuck this activity in. Didn't really announce it to
everyone, just went "let's go!" and we did. Went and had ice cream crepes at Crepes and Cream, what rebels we are!

So, one of the project groups has 5,000 hours worth of work to complete in one month. Wow. And I was complaining about 1,400 hours worth work to be completed in two and half months. Well, stock up on the coffee and red bull people, long nights ahead.

Acquisition this week:
The Tower - Valerio Massimo Manfredi

Well actually, I didn't buy it myself. It was a gift from the missus for our 2nd anniversary. That makes the gift almost a month overdue :P But I love it, she really thought about this one.

:O saan meron crepes and cream?! akala ko sa Mall Of Asia lang meron...first time ko kumain doon last saturday, the best! sarap! I think the price is relatively sulit considering they are using FIC and serving was big enough for 2 (for 2 of me anyways) :)

hahaha...yup, may crepes and cream dyan lang sa may McDo sa office natin :) It was good, and it was a heftly serving, pero "hefty" is just about right for me :P

I was wondering when Manfredi's next book would be coming out - now I'll have to go out and track down a copy!
