The book about Steve Jobs was my Christmas present from my brother. Hindi ko pa nasisimulang basahin.
Speaking of CSI, my brother who ends the year by visiting the different states ( dinadalaw ang kaniyang mga rancho at mga farm, yong mga mountain ranges at mga dagat baga ) hehehe went to Maine and Vegas this December. Acshually, the state due for visit this year was Maine. Punta lang siya sa Vegas for a conference para makipagpingkian ng talino sa mga kapareho niyang geek.
Anthony Zuiker who? Siya ang creator ng tatlong CSI. Vegas (Ted Danson); CSI NY, Gary Sinese; at ang mapormang si David Caruso ng CSI-Miami.
He wrote about his estranged father who did not look for him even when he was already popular. The news about his death from suicide was brought to him CSI like--that of his friend who was his inspiration for the personality of Gil Grissom. He discussed in the book how he waited for his father so that he can crow about his achievement and to know him better since he left the family when he was a kid. He remmaged his personal things hoping that he might find something that would tell him, he still cared. Nothing, no pictures, no newspaper or magazine clippings about his famous son. Except that the last channel that he watched before his death was the channel where CSI was being shown. Sad.
Do you still receive the yellow pages? I always received two of them when I was in San Fran--one was the yellow pages and the other one was the white pages.
Because there is a 411, I seldom used the directories except when we were sending mail catalogues for our business where I found out, some of those in the white pages were already dead and it was only the relatives continuing the account.
Howewer, I had several uses for my phone book in its original size:
1. Door blocker/stopper
2. Convenient chair when piled one on top of the other
3. pwede ring pillows. Lagyan lang ng cloth sa ibabaw
4. Phone Book Directory
