office email exchanges

The following is a series of emails among officemates who obviously have a bit of time to spare, or else a great need to seek distraction from numerous impending deadlines. Names may or may not have been changed to protect (or not) the dignities and depravities of the persons concerned.

Email Series 1: The Birth of a Methodology

From: Vikki

Hello! ^_^

I placed some songs here (links to folder location). Just copy whatever you want ha. You have until 6pm, then I’ll delete them na.

1. Colbie Caillat – Coco Album (happy happy joy joy album)
2. Paolo Nutini (the irish lad)
3. Ari Hest – Strangers Again (para sa mga bigo sa pag-ibig. Haha)
4. Josh Groban – So She Dances (para sa mga fans ni Josh Groban. sweet song)
5. Peter Gabriel – The Book of Love (narinig niyo na to eh)
6. Zero 7 – Destiny (Make-out song… hahahahaha)

Enjoy! J

(Vikki, you see, is this quiet, demure kind of person, who (as far as we all know) is still single and unspoiled. So the make-out song kinda threw us.)

Reply from: Rina

“Zero 7 – Destiny (Make-out song…)”

– and you know this becaaauuse??? J

Reply from: Ronn

Becaaaauuuusse… nagdadalaga na si vikkilu!

Meroon bang available album un vikks? Hehe… J

(Ronn, in the meantime, is the guy whose sexuality we even wondered about for a while when he first joined the company, but his, em, preferences were established beyond any reasonable doubt during the Boracay company outing. But as they say, what happens in Boracay stays in Boracay, so let’s not go into that).

Reply from: Vikki

Hahahahaha.. ano baaaaaa. Hindi ko pa nagagamit ang kantang yan. 😛

Wala akong album pero sige hanap ako. (bkit whole album?? Nakuuuuu RONNN!!!)

Reply from: Ronn

Hay naku vikks, matagal na akong nagdalaga… haha…

But mas maganda kasi pag ready ka with the album in case a friend asks for one… hehe

From this, a measurement scale emerges in which a person may be rated on a make-out scale according to the appropriate number of make-out songs. Is this guy/girl worth one song? Three? An album? 8GB?

Anyway, a few days later Vikki sent off another make-out song, prompting Mika to ask, “What is it with Vikki and make-out songs?” I guess there’s nothing wrong with being prepared 🙂

Email series 2: A Picture Worth a Thousand Jokes

From (UP alumna): Mika

[emails link to photo of La Salle cheerdance squad misspelling the name of the school during the UAAP competition. Let’s not add fuel to the fire by putting the link here, ok?]

Ho ho ho!

Reply from La Salle alumnus: Josh

It was a way of protesting against societal norms. Har har. I don’t think the formation was done yet but the picture was hastily taken. Hehe.

Reply from: Mika

To crush your defense, the main point of the picture is that there’s a spotter facing the letter formations but they still did not correct themselves. Kulang talaga sa practice, tsk tsk.

Reply from: Josh (burying himself deeper)

Exactly, the spotter seems to be giving the signal that the letters were misplaced and one of the lifters seem to be sending an inquiring face to the spotter. The formation wasn’t done yet. I could be wrong. Hehe.

Reply from (UP alumna): Rina

Oo nga naman no, the spotter was still trying to decide kung wrong spelling nga ba, give him some time! 🙂

Reply from: Mika

And in between the time the spotter was trying to figure out if there’s something wrong and the reaction time of the cheerdancer to make the necessary corrections, time’s up na for the DLSU Pep Squad’s 6-minute routine!

Reply from: Josh

GIF file yan, gagalaw pa yan to correct the formation. Hehe. =)

Help finally came from, ironically, an Atenean.

Reply from: Rondell

Actually I was there and the guy in black really gave the wrong card to the person. Kawawa nga e, after that they slipped and fell like heck. The crowd wasn’t helping because every time something bad happened, there was happy hooting and jeering from the crowd. Mahirap talgang sumikat.

Reply from: Mika

Onga eh, that was very noticeable on the television broadcast. We were looking at amateur videos taken nung CDC, hindi ko alam if matatawa or maaawa ako dun sa mga hindi makakumpleto ng flips and landed on their necks.

Anyway, all’s well that ends well. And it’s not like the UP alumni can afford to be totally smug, what with the 0-14 record of the men’s basketball team. You’ve got to admit, though, that picture was really worth a thousand jokes 🙂

    make-out songs are relaxing! (<defensive? hahahaha) i should really stop calling these songs “make-out songs”.

    Saw the La Salle pic, but someone had made it part of an AMA ad. Sabi doon: “Sa AMA na kayo. Mas madali i-spell.”

    that’s absolutely hilarious dominique, napatawa talaga ko!
    maybe somebody should really compile the thousand jokes 🙂


  5. Mika October 1, 2007 at 3:45 am Reply

    LOL at Vikki being described as “single and unspoiled”.

    Haha, I think I shall apply the make-out scale from now on. I have a playlist in mind already. Haha!


  6. rina October 1, 2007 at 3:49 am Reply

    mika: hmm, somehow methinks that what you have in mind is a specific somekinda-nova album… 🙂


  7. Mika October 2, 2007 at 5:28 am Reply

    It’s good material naman eh! Haha!
