McCain's gracious concession


Obama won.  The tendency, of course, was for the media to focus on his acceptance speech.  Some people at the office watched him on CNN and were so wowed by the new President-elect.  Within the same day, I even received a transcript of his speech.  Even if it was against my nature to shun long non-work-related emails, I read it.

I thought Obama's speechwriter was really, really very good.  Let's get real.  It wasn't the half-black guy but the writer!  Yes, Obama has charisma.  His delivery, however, needed a few improvements.  For one, he sounded monotonous and kept on bombarding and bombarding.  He needs to develop on his inflection more, I tell you. But then, who am I?  He's the new President of the US of A!  Screw me!

Now let's look at the other side - poor ol' man John McCain.  He had to deliver a speech that was a lot more difficult to deliver than Obama's.  Accepting defeat, that's hard.  I watched him on TV and found it classy and gracious of the old man.

As The Joker on Halloween

I have never, ever in my entire life dress up for Halloween.  And after 31 freakin' years, I finally did - as The Joker!  To top it off, I did it at the office!

Yes, I so loved the late Heath Ledger's character in The Dark Knight that even after months following the movie's release, I was still so obsessed about the character that I had the balls to dress up as him.  At the office.


How did I fare?  Strictly speaking, it wasn't really close to the original - the hair, the makeup, the scars, etc.  But for the sake of fun, it was okay.  In fact, it was a blast.  Kids were scared of me (even some adults), everyone wanted to have their photo with me taken... I mean, common, that was Hollywood and this was just me and MBK.  Why so serious?
