An American Wins the New York City Marathon!

Yes!, since I been in the US, it is the first time I hear that an American won the NYC Marathon. Last time an American won was back in 1982. It was great to hear that someone other than an African won this event.  This guy averaged 4.96 Minutes per Mile.. wow!. Congratulations to Meb Keflezighi.

Share Florida

Found this Rally video for “Share a Little SunShine” by the folks at Sparks Studios and though it was great. I Love Florida =)

I really like Sparks overall design and philosophy. So much creativity! I rarely find Design/Web studios close to me, so I was surprise to know they are right here at home.

Rally Video

A week-long video shoot captured Floridians across the state showing their support to help build a grass-roots following. See the video at ShareaLittleSunshine.org

New Home Owner

I think I have finally finish my search for a house. I fell in love with this beautiful home when I saw it on Tuesday. The same day I decided to make the bank an offer. This morning at approximately 10:02 am my Realtor called me and gave me the news that they have accepted. My face lit up upon hearing this. I made several calls in the following order Wife–>Mother–>Friend. It is a great feeling to be done with the house hunting process. I am very excited about this :)

Your song Chiqui

I know that you are into this Betty la Fea ‘novela’ and I know how much you enjoy the title song. I finally found the lyrics for it. I also found the video of the original version by Tita Merello. I hope you enjoy.

thumbnail.aspxSe dice de mi…
Se dice que soy fea,
que camino a lo malevo,
que soy chueca y que me muevo
con un aire compadrón.
Que parezco un dinosaurio,
mi nariz es puntiaguda,
la figura no me ayuda,
y mi boca es un buzón.

Si charlo con Luis, con Pedro o con Juan,
hablando de mi los hombres están,
critican si ya la línea perdí,
se fijan si voy, si vengo o si fui.

Se dicen muchas cosas,
mas si el bulto no interesa
Por qué pierden la cabeza ocupándose de mi?

Yo sé que muchos que desprecian con mentiras,
y suspiran y se mueren cuando piensan en mi amor
Y más de alguno se derrite si suspiro,
y se queda si lo miro, resoplándo con temor.
Si fea soy, pongámosle,
que de eso ya, yo me enteré.
Mas la fealdad que Dios me dió,
mucha mujer me la envidió,
y no dirán que me creí,
porque modesta siempre fui
yo soy asi

Y ocultan de mi
ocultan que yo tengo unos ojos soñadores
y ademas otros timones que producen sensacion
si soy fea se que en cambio tengo un cutis de muñeca
los que dicen que soy chueca no me han visto en camison
los hombres de mi critican la voz,
el modo de andar la punta la tos
critican si ya la linea perdi se fijan si voy si vengo o si fui

Se dicen muchas cosas,
mas si el bulto no interesa
Por qué pierden la cabeza ocupándose de mi?

Yo sé que muchos que desprecian con mentiras,
y suspiran y se mueren cuando piensan en mi amor
Y más de alguno se derrite si suspiro,
y se queda si lo miro, resoplándo con temor.
Si fea soy, pongámosle,
que de eso ya, yo me enteré.
Mas la fealdad que Dios me dió,
mucha mujer me la envidió,
y no dirán que me creí,
porque modesta siempre fui
yo soy asi.

The Perfect Job

Today I receive some disconcerting news. My boss has been laid off. With a crunch in my stomach I sat and listen as he gave me the news. I just sat there trying to digest what was happening. This was expected, but unexpected. In our site, tech support is only him and I. Times being, one person was to remain, and most likely the lower paid employee. It once again dawned on me that it was about money. That it has always been. I wondered how long things will remain like this. Must we endure worst economic times in this country before things get better? ..Probably.

Even though I have confidence that he will bounce back on his feet, it still hurts to lose him as a co-worker. Since the very beginning of my time at PB, he showed not only to be a great boss, but also a great colleague and an even better friend.  I will miss the days in the office when we would make jokes and talk tech. But times change and we must move on.

This short video was sent by him not too long ago. It is very funny to me and it shows his humorous attitude in life. I admire that.

I am sure he will find his Dream Job.

Sacha Baron Cohen – One of those rare actors – [Respek]

SBCohenSacha Baron Cohen’s  [Booyakasha] style is what sets him apart in todays saturated media ..everyone is trying to be different. This guys daring style is what makes him different and unique. I often wonder how much of his character is part of his actual persona. I like to think his characters are all him, very close to how he is in real like. His recent Letterman interview gave me some indication of this. He is an original and an incredibily daring guy. His work is genius and I am glad I found his show when it was still on HBO (thanks to my Brother). It has given me good insight into the psychology of human behavior.

I hope he stays a success [Realness] and after Bruno, comes back with material just as controversial. There are many things in the world yet to be exposed and I am sure this guy is already brain storming on a way to bring it out in a smart and creative way. [Rekognize]

Sacha Baron Cohen; someone I will definitely follow for the years to come.
