and then the factory starts grinding

It feels good to be in the thick of things again. It helps to have, of course, people who are willing to help, like our librarian who suddenly found a higher calling in collating photocopied executive summaries and filing them in neat folders, euphemistically called participants’ kits. You painstakingly badger paper presenters for their respective papers’ summaries or Powerpoint presentations, reproduce them, compile them in a folder, and then distribute them to participants so they could have one more addition to their ever-expanding collection of unread photocopied thingies. Maybe we should put a large sign on the cover: “Note: this can also be read.”

Amid the flurry of calling up paper reactors and researchers, our most trusted clerk decided to file a two-week sex leave because her seaman boyfriend just docked here. Now he's docked somewhere deeper and danker. She didn’t leave me hanging, though. She made sure the nitty-gritty of clerical shit had already been ironed out before she darted toward the brine-drenched arms of her beau. Even the reclusive creature in our Data Bank, who is usually holed up in between musty shelves that irritatingly smell like stale sweat, got out and did some faxing and coordinating for me. She still required that the task be spelled out to her in detail, but what the heck, at least, she’s out of her burrow now, and made herself useful to the human race.

I paused to munch on my tuna sandwich and to chat with a visiting friend, Gail. In between bites, I managed to squeeze in a photo shoot featuring Adie’s barely-there boobs and butt. I wanted to do “before” and “after” shots but I needed to rush back to work. Only the “before” shots were taken. Besides, I don’t think Adie brought enough rolled up socks for the “after” pictures. They wouldn’t have fitted in her bra anyway.

Back to work. Phone call here. Document there. Lay-out design on Adobe Pagemaker. Last minute printing and photocopying of stuff. And we’re all set. The roundtable discussion will be held this afternoon. It will last for approximately five hours. Great. Five hours of sleep. That’s not bad at all.

how many sex leaves does your company give you annually? here, we have none. i suppose that by our looks, they think we don't need em.

RMACAPOBRE--« Elle a de la bonne chance » peut-être.

Tu viens d’aller à leyte ! C’est chouette ! les beaux gens avec de la peau brune, hmmm, qu’est-ce qui s’est passé alors ? tu as fait beaucoup d’amour ?

ELVIN--oh believe me, they'd find a way to visit me, those damn spammers, they're like viruses without a cure.

my factory "looks" fun, until you actually start working in it.:)

SIDNEY--sometimes i do; most of the time i don't.

ABANIKO--i don't need to. my sex life is still healthy. :) still having enough every week.

TRANSIENCE--i just "seem" to enjoy myself. as a friend once told me, an ideal job is, like love, illusory.

BLUE ARDEN--wow, you must all be aglow in your office! or maybe management thinks you're all oversexed. and that's sooo cool. i seem to have a lot of colleagues who don't have sex as often as they should.

SAINT EROICA--i only delegate if i needed to. ingat ka, baka gang up sa iyo mga yan. hehe.

REBECCA--it's an inside joke between us. i'm not such a sucker for big bazookas. and i assure you that i would "look into your eyes and not at your breasts."

nice essay you got there. you're the only one i know who felt miserable for being well-endowed, even in childhood.

Does Adie know she's featured here? Great exposure ha. Hehehe. You gotta show me the "before" pics.

At sino naman yung clerk na nag-sex leave? Sana dito din meron hahaha! So many fafas to do it with. :-D

At 10:34 AM, Blogger slim whale said...

JENJADED--no, she doesn't. she'll kill me if she finds out. i used Gail's phone to take the pics. kaya lang, binura nya. natakot yata kay adie.

yung clerk namin dito sa division ang nag-sex leave. i don't think you know her.

you don't need to file a sex leave. just go out with that guy who flirted with you at the pool. kelan balik mo pinas?

At 4:54 AM, Blogger jenjaded said...

Oh... kaya naman pala wala pang violent reaction from her. Bakit parang busy sila?

Naku wag na yung guy sa pool. I've been scouring Fayette Mall for the right fafa. Haha. AS IF, JEN!

November 12 ang alis ko dito. Be there 13 na siguro. Might drop by L.A. though.

JENJADED--maganda yan. sige, tapos isulat mo sa blog mo ang blow by blow account ng gagawin nyong dalawa a la xerex. "mahal kong xerex, nagsimula ang lahat sa fayette mall..."

san ka ba exactly? punta ka sa hollywood? universal? shit, cool.

ADIEK--shit, bakit napunta si adie dito? sinabi mo ba, jen, na na may special double-breast exposure sya dito?

oist, baka mabasa ito ni gail. sige ka, hahawahan ka nun ng "chickenFox," hanggang sa boobs.

oo nga jen, mangolekta ka, tapos bigyan mo si adie. para di na lang si mama ___ ang focus ng attention nya.
