Yet Another Penniless Christmas

The merciless Grinch did it again.

Just when I thought I've had him deported to the dreadful icebergs of Antarctica, he came back with a wide grin. Tapping on my window, he waived the parchment bearing the bad news:

"No bounty for you this Christmas! :-)"

F_ _ k_ng Sh _t! @#$%**(()_!! Again?!!!!

Due to an unfair rule from the gods of Olympus, I will be denied all the bonuses afforded to all others in my company. Darn! What a way to cap the year, huh!

Well, it's a good thing I’m used to being poor. Armed with my spartan training, I'm sure I will again survive this poverty-marred Christmas, as I have always done during the past years. With nothing to grease my stomach, I’ll probably just pack my bags and heed to the mountains.

And plan for my grand revenge on Christmas eve.

Yes, I speak (a little) and understand Bisaya. And I'm sure I'll enjoy the vid just as I did with the spoof of 300.

Btw, I updated my blog's s0-called worth and it's now $28,791.54. If only that's convertible to cash ...

Ha? Odd man out ka when it comes to company bonuses? Bakit? Talaga namang %&#@*& yan! But that's life. Inom na lang tayo.

aryo said...

Abaniko: Balak ko nga lunurin ang aking kasawian. Ang since sagot mo naman dahil birthday mo, am sure magtatagumpay ako he he. Pero dala ka ng posas ha. Baka magwala ako e. :-)

Rochelle said...

Bummer. N fun to be broke around the Christmas! Or anytime! Grrrr... get the grinch!

Fence said...

crap, that sucks. on the other hand, you'll have a very legitimate reason for not giving anything except love this christmas. :D also, it's better to receive than to give for you as well! hmm, ano pa ba...

KRIS JASPER ANGEL said...

Merry Xmas.

coldman said...

Rochelle: Am surely getting the Grinch. This time, I'll make sure he's sent to Mars!

Fence: Actually, sanay na rin ang mga inaanak ko na walang binibigay. Matagal-tagal na rin kasi akong walang pera, he he.

Kris: Sana manalo ka.... Tumaya ka ba naman?

Coldman: Maniwala ka. Hindi ako kasing yaman mo. :-)
