This is my way of reminding myself of the little things that recently made me happy as inspired by Helga.

 

This week has been both busy and boring at the same time. You know those days when you have so much to do but you still seem to be bored? I’ve had those days all week. But I still have to be thankful of the little things.

  1. I spent the weekend in Baguio. With Manila’s heat, I cannot stress enough how refreshing it is to have spent a couple of days somewhere cold.
  2. Because I went to Baguio, I got to spend some time with my little (and only) sister. She goes to college in UP Baguio and my visit coincided with her last few days before their semestral break. The last time I’ve seen her was during the Holy Week and I’ve missed her so much.
  3. Fruit (and veggie) smoothies. I brought home strawberries and other fruits from Baguio. I have been making smoothies almost everyday and I’ve been slowly incorporating some vegetables into the mix. I plan to transition on having green juice everyday soon.
  4. Catching up with old-time friends. I don’t text a lot and I honestly hate phone calls so when I don’t see my friends personally, I tend to lose connection. I am thankful to have met up with friends I haven’t seen for a long while now, and finally got updated on each other’s lives.
  5. Speaking of catching up, I finally caught up on all the iZombie episodes. When I started watching this series, there were already 10 episodes out. And just yesterday, I watched Episode 12. I am so excited for the season finale!
  6. Finally finished my process cross training at work. I am offloading a bulk of my current book of work to make way for incoming processes. The training was tedious but I am glad we got it over with.
  7. Post-fight niceness from Cris. We didn’t really fight FIGHT but we got into a little bit of misunderstanding a few days ago. He’s always extra nice and attentive after these episodes so I cherish these “spoiled” moments LOL.
  8. Facebook’s “On This Day” thingamajig. I guess this has been existent for a long while now but I only got to notice it this week. It gives you snapshots of your Facebook posts on the same day, several years ago. It’s just fun to reminisce such memories.
  9. My housemate’s brother is in the city and he brought over some pre-cooked Bicolano food: sinantol and laing. They are now sitting in my fridge,waiting for me to devour them. I plan to do so tomorrow, and pair it with fried fish. Omnomnom!
  10. Today’s lunch at SOM’s. I always look forward to Friday lunch-outs with my team. Today we had copious amounts of Thai food and I washed it all down with SOM’s Thai Tea which I terribly missed.

How was your week?

It all started when Mark got dumped by his girl and he went bitching about her in his blog. Then he worked on a program, “FaceMash”, which rates women based on their hotness. Overnight, it went viral at Harvard and the massive traffic caused parts of the University’s network to go down. Because of this hoax, he went under probation and was hated by most, if not all, of Harvard’s women. FaceMash’s infamy brought him to the attention of hot twins who were working on a website, and then they hired him as a programmer.

Mark flocked by his roommates as he creates FaceMash based on Eduardo's chess logic

Mark had this idea to create a social networking website exclusively for Harvard University students which he called “TheFacebook”. He approached his best friend Eduardo for help, the latter agreed and they start the site. The hot twin heard about it and thought that Awkberg stole the core idea from them.

Trivia (which everyone probably already knows by now): The twins were played by only one actor

Mark and Eduardo met this hot chick and her other hot friend and used the phrase “Facebook us”. Hot chick introduced another friend but said another friend was clueless of TheFacebook as she does not go to Harvard. Mark then decided to expand to other universities which further infuriated the hot twins. Mark and Eduardo arranged a meeting with Justin Timberlake who was presumably another internet genius. Justin won Mark’s heart and Eduardo’s jealousy.

During his first meeting with Mark and Eduardo

Justin suggested to drop the “The” and just name the site “Facebook”. Mark and Justin are now the new BFFs, Eduardo and Mark goes astray. Facebook prospered and expanded to other continents. The hot twins and Eduardo sued Mark’s ass, Justin got arrested due to possession of cocaine. Film ends with Mark sending a friend request to her ex-GF and refreshing the page every few seconds waiting for her approval.

I enjoyed the film despite some rather boring scenes where everyone was just blabbering. Oh well, this movie is full of talk anyway, so that’s not saying anything. But if you’re one who enjoys “intellectual” (LOL) movies, this one is highly recommended (that is, if you haven’t seen it yet coz apparently, it’s been months since this was shown in the movies).
