Break Tiiiiiiyme

@ Work:

I’ve planned my work for 3 days to just do 3 things

  • Complete evaluation of the test that was conducted on Nov 29th along with posting of result to schools
  • Add all those attractive books and journals sitting on my desk and in the cupboards to the library system. Publish them to the junta at office
  • Get to up to speed with the new training and learning enabler system and stop cribbing about it being on SAP

With no pals to hang around with, I’m becoming a workaholic. Thankfully gtalk is not yet blocked on the network. A virtual social life is better than none.

@ Home:

- Thethu still has exams going on. Waiting for her to finish and then do something useful with herself. It’ll help keep her temper and tongue in check :)

- Leah’s learnt to scream that high pitched scream. I’m thankful I’m not at home when she gets into her screaming fits

- Joel finally got his school identity card. It looks real neat. Sigh! My baby boy’s looking so grown up with that tag around his neck.

@ Neither of these places:

- I wish for lots of music CDs and all those songs I used to love listening to but just don’t have the time or can’t get my hands on to. Grooveshark’s nice but then I can’t sit at the comp at home for more than 10 minutes in a week.

- I wish for meeting old friends and catching up on their lives. Miss the agnesangels. Facebook and Orkut helps but not much.

- I wish for plenty of gifts that will make me smile every time I see them. (Santa are you listening?)

- I wish for no more heart aches

- I wish for good health to every kid born and yet to be born

- I wish for … sigh! This wish list is never going to end :)

Ever noticed?

It’s funny how you expect things to happen and they never do. And when you don’t expect anything, they just don’t either!


On the work front,

-          D has left work spot. A is on leave and her transfer to Chennai seems definite. J will be back on Jan 11th.

-          In the meanwhile, Ap – new lady – joined this Mon. P joins next week. Lots of KT to be given. Once that’s done, dump the entire load of dept admin work on them. Will concentrate on library only. Got to figure out a way for them to give a status report by eod or eow.

-          Travelling between 2 offices has come to adjustable halt. This week I travel just for tomorrow. Very happy about that. Fridays in the new office is a pretty good mood boost.

-          Glad that I won’t have major loads on my head related to admin. Library is another whole load I’ll take care of from Monday.

-          Life without my buddies at work seems ok since I’m very occupied from the time I step in to the time I step out. I hate to think of the time otherwise. I’m going to miss them a lot more than I ever imagined :(


Non-work front,

-          Leah turned a year old on 9th November. Celebrated her birthday with just family – Abu, Nanna, Thethu, D, A, Joel and Ibba nanna. Thankfully she had 2 teeth to show up for her first celebration. My hunt for the perfect dress for her will have to wait another year. But hey! searching for ‘The’ dress, landed up with 4 dresses for her :)

-          Joel and she had a gala time with the cake. Me too. I can’t get enough of Crumbz pastries. Will try Bon Bons again before this year end.

-          2 more cakes by Nov end – 1 for mom’s birthday and 1 for mom and dad’s wedding anniversary. Joel’s a thorough Black Forest cake guy.

-          Had a tiny cyst removed on the anniversary day. Everything was fine till Leah banged her knee into the operated area. Either my threshold limit for pain has increased or the local anesthetic was still effective. Dull ache now though in the area

-          Shopping is fun. Wedding gift shopping is a pain. I hate gold or saree shopping but that’s what I finally landed up doing. And gold was like 3 times in a row! I’m sure Chemmanur and Alukkas hate my guts.

-          U got married. I’m glad she got married in Mangalore. Glad that I could attend her reception at least. Would have loved to see the whole marriage process. Saw her photographs today. Cursing that I wasn’t there. She looked lovely. And they look the made for each other pair.

-          Wish I could make to Hyd at least for A’s wedding reception. No luck there. And no luck to get her over phone twice. Decided not to disturb the 2 love birds :)

-          The bee stings. Didn’t like it much. The thought and urge to squash it was pretty strong. Have decided to give it another chance.


On the crazy dream front,

-          Dreamed that my parents or sis told me that the papers were filled news about my company. Why? It was asked to move out of the SEZ area. He he he.



They say

Home is where the heart is. I’ve no home :(

Not happy

Been thinking. I’m not sure when I began the thinking part. Just that thinking is a process that was and still is till date a major part of what I do every single day for the past few months. The thoughts came. The thoughts stayed. They shook me up. A lot.


Why? Becoz in the end, just 3 words came up real huge: Cheat, Dishonest, Liar. Am I talking about me? Yes and No.


Why Yes? Although I don’t like to be called or identified as any those 3 unpleasant words, I know that I have been that at some time or another.


Why No? How honest are you? Haven’t you cheated at least once? And no lies till date?
