back to work…

…but feels more like I’m back in school! πŸ˜€

Strangely, I had been a school-goer (wonder what my parents were thinking!)…and I vividly remember trudging back to school every June 1 — when the monsoon sets in, full force, in God’s Own Country. Wet uniforms and wet socks, which causes incessant chills and itch-under-the-feet respectively, was never an issue for the teachers and parents. Students were expected in class everyday! Bah!

The situation is more or less similar now as well. After a break of 157 days from work (!!!), I joined back this monday — tornadoand I feel like I used to on those June 1sts, long back πŸ˜‰ .There’s no time for anything. Time seems to fly — and in Concordes, that too πŸ˜‰ Before I know, it’s morning and I’m struggling to wake up. Before I’m ready to be awake, I’m already in the bus. Before I’m settling into my seat, I’ve reached office. Before I even take in the jobs for the day, it’s time to catch the last bus home. Before I’m properly seated and letting out a tired sigh, I’m stepping into the kitchen. Before I finish chewing the first tid-bit, it’s time to sleep…and before my eyelash-neighbours kiss each other goodnight, it’s time to wake up!

And being married doesn’t help at all. Hehe…I can’t be lazy anymore. Can’t over-sleep. Can’t quit breakfast anymore. Can’t quit dinner anymore. In fact, there’s no point in doing all that — because I have to prepare food, no matter what IΒ  choose to do.

Either I shift this house (it’s a really nice one!) somewhere close to Race Course Road; else, I get my boss to shift office to J.P. Nagar (highly unlikely πŸ˜€ ). Living 13 kms (read as 1.30 hours one-way travel) away from your workplace is not the most intelligent thing to do in Bangalore. Sigh!

All this translates into ‘no time for blogging’! That’s what I’m hating the most about this entire arrangement! And once you take a break from blogging, it’s damn tough to come back (as I’ve proved more than once already! πŸ˜€ ). And New Year Resolutions are just not meant to be!!! Like any other genius, I also took one — to blog everyday. So far, I’ve hopelessly failed in that!

From what I see, the year has started on the wrong note…or was it me? Ummmm…now let me re-cap — which side of the bed did I wake up on Jan 1? The foot-side, I guess! See… I’m not even making any sense here in this post! First post of 2009. And this is, so far, my worst post ever! I pity all you readers for the rest of the year. But swalpa adjust maadi; keep visiting, keep reading! πŸ˜€

Happy New Year again, folks!


P.S.: All you people who are single, remain so forever! Enjoy life. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€

Tag me unromantic!

I’ve been having a terrible writer’s block for more than a week now. And in such situations, friends — disguised as ‘taggers’ — become a saviour. And, it was in such a time that this tag came my way. But Vimal, my saviour in disguise, I’m gonna kick you for tagging me this one! πŸ˜€ . Though this is quite an ‘interesting’ tag, I am not at all the one to do it! But well, of the two rules below, one says I have no escape!

RULE #1 People who have been tagged must write their answers on their blogs and replace any question that they dislike with a new question formulated by themselves.

RULE #2 Tag 6 people to do this quiz and they cannot refuse. These people must state who they were tagged by, cannot tag the person whom they were tagged by, and must continue this game by sending it to other people.

So here goes!

  1. If your lover betrayed you, what will your reaction be?
    My definition of ‘betrayal’ is gravely different from the normal person’s. So, I tend to ignore this question (for fear of kicking up deadly debates in the blogville πŸ˜‰ ).
  2. If you can have a dream to come true, what would it be?
    My dream would come true the day someone creates my clone! πŸ™‚
  3. Whose butt would you like to kick?
    Vimal‘s πŸ˜€ !!!!!!!
  4. What would you do with a billion dollars?
    Go off to Austria in a hot-air balloon!
  5. Will you fall in love with your best friend?
    I would’ve, definitely, if I were a lesbian πŸ˜€ !
  6. Which is more blessed, loving someone or being loved by someone?
    Both are equally so! (Existence of one without the other is horrid.)
  7. How long do you intend to wait for someone you really love?
    Till around 11:30 p.m. Then I’ll sleep off!
  8. If the person you secretly like is already attached, what would you do?
    Use some ‘de-attacher’, de-attach him and promptly attach him to me πŸ˜€
  9. If you like to act with someone, who will it be? Your gf/bf or an actress/actor?
    Madhavan! Oh…I’d give anything to see him up close! (The guy I acted with once, became my bf later. I would love to see if the same would happen if I act with Madhavan! πŸ˜‰ )
  10. What takes you down the fastest?
    A lift — and if it’s one with no individuality, faster still.
  11. How would you see yourself in ten years’ time?
    With my eyes, of course!
  12. What’s your fear?
    I fear I’ll regret my decision.
  13. What kind of person do you think the person who tagged you is?
    A handsome singer, a tee-totaller and a good friend πŸ˜‰ (now waiting to get kicked too).
  14. Would you rather be single and rich or married but poor?
    I’d much rather be married and still rich! πŸ˜›
  15. What’s the first thing you do when you wake up?
    Sneeze!(I have some damn nasal problem.)
  16. Would you give all in a relationship?
    Everything, but my individuality.
  17. If you fall in love with two people simultaneously, who would you pick?
    The lighter one πŸ˜€ Ok…jokes apart, why the hell can’t I have both? Only one? In that case, the one with the better parents! πŸ˜€
  18. Would you forgive and forget, no matter how horrible a thing that special someone has done?
    Yes! I am blessed with a bad memory. People can vouch for that!
  19. If you get to go back in time and fall in love all over again, would it still be with the same person? (Original question: What are your three most important expectations in love?)
    Ummmmmmm…can the same person have different parents? No? Then, NO !
  20. List 6 people to tag:
    Reema, Sakhi, Mahak, Xylene, Harish
    and Arvind
