Drunk?? You Betcha!

A friend of mine launched his new product last Saturday, and he invited me to the launching party. Since I had no one to go with since Amy left me for New York, I was planning on not to show up. But then he called a few days before that and made me come to his party... shit.

Since I didn't feel like going alone (Diane will be there, if I came alone, she'd probably try to introduce me to her "girl" friends, no thanks), I had to find a date quick.

I called my cousin Astrid, she was in Bali. I called Ratna, she's going on a date with a new guy on that day. I called Mira (what?? are you nuts?), luckly she wasn't home. I called Rina, she had to meet Robby's parents that weekend (they're getting married). I called Angel, her colleague said she's not in a good mood. I called Maya, and she said "I'd love to".

Great, well almost. They served champagne at the party see, and although I can hold my liquor, it seems my date couldn't, even just one glass. Took this picture for memory sake, hope to laugh over it when we're older and sober. Hahahahahaha

A call from a friend

Tony Siahaan has been a mentor for me. I met him back in 1998 when I was working at GDA, he was a freelance copywriter at that time. Yesterday he called me and asked about my leaving Ogilvy.
"Silvia told me you left Ogilvy for no reasons. why?", he asked.
"It wasn't working out. Its the way their AE works", I answered. Next I told him the whole story. Sorry, I can't tell you why. But it's a normal practice that's done in most advertising agencies.

"When the hell did you become saint? That's common man!", he said to me.
"Well, not all agencies do it. I think I would rather work somewhere I don't need to witness those things"
"What are you gonna do now?" mas Tony asked.
"I accepted a teaching position at Trisakti for this next semester"
"No no no! You come here to Lowe tomorrow morning. I want you on my team!", he told me."I need you for an IMC project!"

So, it seems I'll be going to Lowe tomorrow.
