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.

Michael Jackson has died.

Times are changing and people whom you used to follow as a kid are starting to die. Is this a sign that time is passing and you are getting old? Everyone’s day will eventually come.  This just reminds me of the fast and swift passage of time.

I started to listen to Michael Jackson since 1990 and I have almost all his records. Listening to his music reminds me of my younger days and brings out some good memories. I will never forget him. Rest in Peace Michael.

House hunting

I have been looking for a house for apprx two months now. Did not know how hard this would be. I have lost a few good offers for underbidding. Now I know better. I am still searching for the bargains. They are still out there. Best advise I got so far from a Realtor (that speaking at the First time owners class) is: “dont fall in love with any one home” because there are so many out there that you can fall in love with the next one just as easily. But, the other message I am drawing from this is that it could also be difficult to get that great low-priced house due to the multiple offers, that you can be badly disappointed.

Running

An amputee goes for Boston Marathon record! Click Here. I have great admiration for people with this determination. I am hoping to do a marathon one day. Right now I am barely up to 4 miles (at 34mins)..only 22 miles left for the NYC marathon!

Lets see.. I am doing an average of 8.5M/m. I will shoot for a pace of 8.3 M/m so I can maybe finish the 26 mile marathon in a little under 4 hrs if I find the energy to dash at the last minute hehe.  Trying to accomplish this before I turn 36.
