Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

Troikasters Part Two!

Here’s the second and last part of the podcast with Tony and Corporate Closet. This is even longer, at 46 minutes and 2 seconds, and even more hilarious (well, I was laughing out loud even if I was there and I knew what was said!). Again, it’s available in MGG and also here, in case MGG’s site is too busy.

Listening to parts 1 & 2 of the podcast is very revealing for me. I realize that I know lots of things and have lots of ideas but I just see surface connections. Gibbs is the wisest of the three because not only is his knowledge extensive, he’s also able to integrate the things he knows. Migs, being the youngest of the three, likes to place the things he learns into neat structures for better understanding. Then there’s me, taking in so many things and yet, instead of integrating them, I just toss them up and juggle them in the air. Maybe one day I’ll stop juggling and all the things that I know will come crashing down around me.

Ang saya saya ng discussion natin that night. Sobrang nakakatuwa. Si Mave though thinks that we ganged up on CC and made him feel bad.

TONY: Hahaha! Tell Mave that we've always "ganged up" on CC, even way before. That's our "karinong brutal" sa kanya. :-)

migs' neat structure thinking is not because of youth, methinks... that's really how he is... we were business school classmates and that 'framework' frame of mind almost got him into trouble...

cc, anong kaguluhan ito!? hehehe!

but i kinda agree, i'm wired that way. it's my comfort zone. so if i get to be too much of a "framework" freak, do call my attention. mabait naman po ako at tumatanggap ng pagkakamali. hehehe!

MIGS: Putting things within a "framework" is not necessarily a negative thing. I think especially since you're aware of it, you can always be your own check-and-balance.

Frameworks help us simplify things for easier, quicker understanding. It's just that life sometimes throws at us stuff that defy easy and quick explanations. We just have to be open to those possibilities. :-)
