Losing money for nothing

How much money am I losing for nothing?

Well, that’s the question I have asked myself today upon reading the local newspaper. Please do not think that I am just wasting my money for nothing. That I am spending left and right and so now, I am questioning my spending activities.

NOPE! The answer is a definite No. As a matter of fact, both you and me are losing money for nothing. And that is all because of the bastard called “Inflation.”

There is no need for me to define what inflation means but I can assure you, it is a phenomenon that eats something out of your earnings and it does nothing but just eat part of your earnings for nothing. LOL

Sometimes it happens this way

One morning during rush hour, a guy stands in a street corner, holds a placard that reads:

Help him

Most people who passed by, seeing his clean appearance thought (???) he snapped, lost it and gone nuts. Some even dared to tell him “Man, you are crazy!” He shouted back, “No Way!”

Some people took pity on him, others presumed he is hungry, gave him food. He refused and said, “I am not hungry! Can’t you see, I am not begging for food!”

Be crazy: It’s easy!

Yes, I wrote them right after the smokes of New Year 2008 cleared allowing the fresh and cool wind of Cavite to touch my happy face while I stared at those marvelous stars painted all over that great and wide canvass over our heads. It was a great feeling, knowing and being in a place you called home.

Yes, it feels good because I still do not need that much amount of zinc to help my brain remember those words and non-sense I scribbled on that piece of bond paper which I titled The List. It was a long list that contained everything that I said I would finish all at one time in the first two months of the year. It was my attempt of sort to set a world record. LOL

Here are some (or few) of them.

Finish writing that book! (i’ve got the balls you know…)

. . . not knowing that in the absence of these other colors, there wouldn’t be a profound beauty called rainbow.

Complete my sketch book and the Kartoon series.
Make a lot of money from stock investment!!!
Play tennis everyday.
Vacation, three times a year.
Work less.
Sleep more.
Be irresponsible.
Be crazy.
And the long list goes on.

I am like this sometimes

I have noticed that lately,  many readers are going to my post titled Stock Trading Terms and your Doctor.

I am surprised so I checked. but as far as I am concerned, there is no extra-ordinary thing there. The post as always, just contained crazy thoughts of mine.

But then, when I was almost at the bottom, I  wondered why I wrote a long response to a simple question made by a commenter who simply asked where I am based right now? and he wants to join my blogroll (san ka ba based ngayon? gusto ko ring sumali sa blogroll mo ah).

What’s peculiar about this is that most of the time I do not comment on most comments here (sorry for that) but this one, na-engaged ako. lol


myepinoy says, I am based in the land of oil, camel and the desert.
