Grammar, schmammar....

Sunday, September 27, 2009

Actually, grammar matters. I just thought I'd share something that made me laugh at work yesterday with you. I was helping a customer over the phone with her request of a book entitled "[Lose] That Man and Let Him Go" by T.D. Jakes. Well, at least that's what I typed in the search. I kept coming up with nothing under that title and kept thinking "Am I typing the title incorrectly? Is she giving me the correct title/author? Why is it not coming up?!" I finally decided to just type in the author and make this impossible search possible. Little did I know I'd actually find the book she was looking for but with the title spelled like this: "Loose That Man and Let Him Go." I don't know if the spelling is intentional or not. Maybe I'm missing the content of the book and I'm wrong about the title being incorrect but LOOSE ≠ LOSE. 

Molla. I've never come across this in the year and 5 months I've worked at B&N. Gotta love working at a bookstore, I tell yah. Hahaha!

Have a great Sunday, all!

Remembering 9/11

Friday, September 11, 2009

Can you believe it's been 8 years since the tragedy in NY?

It still feels like yesterday to me. I remember waking up, getting ready for school, and all of a sudden seeing and hearing the news on the way to school. I recall sitting in Mr. Burger's French class watching the second tower collapse. It all happened so quickly. And 8 years later, we're here STILL fighting a war that doesn't really make any sense to me anymore.

My prayers go out to those families who have lost a loved one 8 years ago. They will not be forgotten because they live on in your memories.

Happy Birthday, Inang! We love and miss you dearly.
It's been 8 years. I still get choked up when I think about you even though I shouldn't.
You told me to be strong and smile instead of mourn. I've done my best, Inang.
Thank you for everything. I know you're watching down on us at His side.
Paradise is celebrating with you today!
