Just another day of ping-pong

Took my play-ping-pong-at-work-shirt to work today and tensions were immediately released. I could play without the anxiety of wetting down my outfit and the play followed. First I beat my nemesis, Domingo – twice, after Kansas was the next victim to lose before Aramique humiliatingly suffered three (3) consecutive defeats.

I was king of the table and ready to be crowned when Jakob suddenly saw his chance, about an hour later, when I was calmly working behind my desk, and challenged me. Clearly out of pace, I accidentally lost and my winning streak was over and the glory and the magic of the shirt were gone. Affected by all this I have the potion to remove the freshly arrived curse tomorrow by bringing play-ping-pong-at-work-shorts. It will be a day to be remembered.

Work at 9am

Even the sheer thought of it feels repulsive/weird. Only an hour before regular swinging in to the office, but enough to make this entire evening revolve around it. “Going up early tomorrow, better not eat anything too late” I nod in agreement to myself and shove another spoon of Strawberry Yogurt into my mouth and down to the belly.

Also knowing that it probably will rain again tomorrow is also another remotely tempting incentive to start thinking about this now. Why we do it? Because we looove the self-torturing part of it. We humans love to test our endurance and skills, do the worse thing possible, preferable when everyone else prior has failed, to show-off without having to, ‘show-off’, and then push our limits. That’s what we do.

It’s just displayed differently throughout the world. Some climb Mount Everest or ride a barrel down the Niagara Falls, walk the miles of sand across never-ending deserts, travel to space or just develop cure for cancer, while the rest of us prepare to be at work at nine. Or contemplating about briskly showers during the run tomorrow morning, or which shirt to use as a spare ping-pong shirt at work (trust me I looked hideous during my three games today, remember i sweat easily; 1-1 against Domingo, and 0-1 against Jakob – but he’s the boss, so didn’t want to embarrass him in front of his staff) but in the end – it’s all same-same.

YouTube statistics:

"5. On a typical day, more men watch a YouTube video than women – 23% to 15%."

Could this have anything to do with the fact that the top 3 topics are, without consequential order, porn, stupid dogs/humans and kids. So, since we 'own' two-thirds of topics, this doesn't come as any major surprise to anyone.

"Hey Peter," the ad said. "Hot singles are waiting for you!!" He might have dismissed the advertisement, which appeared on his Facebook page, but for one thing.

Moistly humid

It’s no “big thing” that I sweat a lot/easily. Done it for years, starting to get used to it. All fine. Thing is it’s exceeding the usual amount of floods pouring out. And it’s not even super-hot. Humid, oui. But not that warm. Like after my run, I literally, look like I’ve taken a bath and then a shower and as I stand on the terrace getting naked and squeezing my clothes down the house (hello downstairs neighbors) I can remain there for hours and still emit bodily liquid and the floor looks like it’s rained on it. Very annoying sometimes, and part of the reason I constantly regret walking to work in a bright-colored shirt. So, who wants to make out?

Monday night Sky Terrace + the botox pig

Approximately 2 minutes separated me from leaving the office and go home and cook my all-day, highly anticipated homemade hamburgers when Vida came up and asked if I wanted to go to a party on The Hudson Hotel. Reluctant to ignore a good time we went together with Karin.

Sal had a birthday party on a private terrace and people were mingling and looked very Italian and the view was just ridiculous. I had a tee that said “Miami” and felt slightly out of synch but received compliments for it from none other than Max, who arrived with Karin’s boyfriend, Claes, two great architects. A bunch of mojitos corrected that and when the party ended we went to the “Library bar” and played chess. Well I watched when Vida played Claes, and then he received the email.

“Client is not happy”. Client was some shitloaded banker, with about $38 billion and a wife with hesitant taste who had suddenly changed her mind about the Park Av apt Claes had designed (and finished constructed). I also think Vida allowed him to win after that email, cause she was waaay ahead o him, but the funniest thing was when I heard about the rich-couple’s pet.
They had a pig.
They had inserted botox to the pig, making it “always looking happy and smiling”.
Rich people are insane.

“I saw him driving. He couldn’t have been more than 8 or 9,” said Jules Cattie, 41. “That has to be the craziest thing I’ve ever seen.”
