Burgeois ideas galore

I look back at my latest Contemplathings list and I am taken aback at how much burgeois I have managed to become. Then again, my surprise might just be a pretension. Does a call center agent who earns a figure well above the minimum wage have any chance of resisting the temptations of consumerism? Yes, and Jude Law is my boyfriend.

My former co-worker at VXI suggests that I chant a mantra everytime I get guilty when I purchase a four-digit-priced item. The mantra: "Bakit? Nagtatrabaho naman ako a!" Julie tells me it is important that I don't forget the exclamation point. Perfect.

Now that I remember this, let me get back to work and get richer.
