Bad day?

1 Comment

Some people would dislike rainy days like the ones currently being experienced by most of the Luzon area here in the Philippines. But that is not me, I prefer rainy days than sunny days. Sunny days are always linked to cheerful days but I associate it with days of pain and itchiness and sweat.

I think part of that preference stems from two facts:

1) I am a bonafide introvert (aka lazy).  I would rather be inside the house than go out. Some might argue that rains bring out the worst traffic in the metropolis but I encounter those on any workday. At least during rainy seasons I dont swelter in the heat. 😛

2) Ever since I came from my first assignment to Helsinki, my body thermostat is way off. I guess -22 C can do that to your body. Now I have a high tolerance to cold (to the chagrin of my wife who seems to despise any temperature below 27 C) but a low tolerance to heat and humidity. It was not always this way since during my student years I am the one who goes in the middle of the field when harvest seasons come and I could hold my ground by being baked under the sun the whole day.

Yep, rainy days are not gloomy days for me. Especially if I can stay at home, lazily lounging in bed, looking at the rain drops splattering at the closed window, and cuddling with my wife. I could never ask for anything better…


Wanted: Optical trackballs


I am currently on the hunt for a good optical trackball for use here in the office. Apprently trackballs are a dying breed in today’s computer marketplace. I have hit a couple of online computer stores here in the Metro and nobody carries any trackball, even the non-optical kind. I also went to TipidPC to see if any enterprising individuals is offering or offloading an optical trackball. Nada, not even a single trackball hit.

I have also scoured the Glorietta shops since that is the nearest mall in the office and the only thing I saw was an overpriced Logitech wired trackball that seems to belong to the first generation of pointing devices.

Hopefully I can see a good trackball when we go malling this weekend . Neth still owes her nieces and nephew a trip to ‘Hall of Asia‘. 🙂
