[8:29:10 PM] <xxxxxxx> tahnks. i’m going in a while. bye jojo! c u tomorrow! i’ll bring ur gifts.
in the office, we have an internal YM called PSI. most of the time, i don’t use it; i feel it’s so far-out to message someone who’s only a few feet away from you; plus, it’s good to walk from one department to another and bug people at the same time. 🙂
one evening, as lots of us SA (that’s my own code name, sorry to be esoteric) were sweating our asses off to beat our deadlines, somebody sent me a set of messages via PSI. i’m not really into getting intimate with other people. i believe it’s helpful to have that sturdy wall around you. but this one managed to carve a chink on my wall. the messages were so innocently nice, coming straight from the heart, that all i sent back were somewhat vague messages. to think that this set of messages came from somebody who’s very childlike (i’m a putty when it comes to kids), i just had to have that warm, fuzzy feeling. darn. fyi: jojo is an expression from the movie, happy feet. this person calls me jojo after work (i hope it’s not because i look like a penguin). so, as usual, i am all tongue-tied, and ready to give you, my friend, a huge hug.
(wait for my future post on “little miss sunshine.” finally, i got to watch it. how do i feel about the movie? quoting one line from “eternal sunshine of the spotless mind:” “i can die right now…i’m just… happy. i’ve never felt that before.” i guess partly it’s because i’ve waited for this movie for almost eight months i don’t care if they show the movie in reverse with bengali lines— i’d still fall in love with it.)
