Monday mornings! I love them.. erm…

Right… so here I am sitting in front of the comp, waiting for the replies for one of my articles to come in. This can be sooo annoying sometimes. This stuff is not in your hands, and all you can do is hope and pray that the replies will be in sometime soon. The deadline is long past and getting many brickbats for a change. Dang… to top it off there is nothing to distract you either. You have finished all your other assignments for the month, done all the other articles you can do… even written a 10k word article in 3 days! (Now that’s what you call ‘pounding the keyboard’). Let’s hope and pray that the replies come in before the boss enquires about them again… I hate to say that the work is not done.

Visited my blog again. I thought I had activated my twitter feeds to be sent by mail to the blog but that has somehow not worked. Gotta check on that, it’d be cool if that got working. I am slowly realising how effectively you can use Twitter, no more ‘instant sms updates’ for me. I now use a service on which I spent only 3 bucks. Gotta write an article on this… surely!

I need to start channelling my energies towards the future. There are things to do. I delayed them during the weekend and I feel miserable for it. Will get down to doing em in earnest this week.

Need to upload the snaps I have on the phone too… they have started accumulating – and rusting on the phone. Aaphis goes grand and there are more plans for it. Apart from that, nothing much.

The weekend was boring. Did nothing noteworthy on saturday, watched the match… did a jig when India one. Thats it. Bought jeans and cargoes on yesterday… blew up 1800… am not really brand concious but this offer, I could not pass up – it was one of those ‘buy one get one free’ kinds… so the impulse shopping kicked in. Bought black jeans (since my current black ones have happily faded to being dirty grey) and green cargoes with lots of pockets (not as baggy as the last ones I bought). So that was how the cookie crumbled.

Some site tweaks are in order. They should be done by today. Something to keep me busy I guess 🙂

Monday morning update!

It’s been a good few days… The weekend was good according to me, barring the bike crash. Nothing serious. Just bruised all over and feeling very stiff that’s all. Nothing to worry about. I thought the bike was a wreck and would cost a fortune to repair but luckily that was sorted in 300 bucks!! That’s why I love Bombay so much. Everything is so cheap over here. I am sure the same repair work in Bangalore would have cost me a grand at least.
Had gone to some audio/video expo yesterday! BORING… zzzzz… But I did find a few colleagues there which was kind of surprising. I guess geeks are attracted to the same places. Lol.

Had dinner at Leopold Café with cousins. I LOVE the ambience there (I think I mentioned it earlier) and since I was in such a benevolent mood, I offered to foot the bill too… very uncharacteristic for me 🙂

This week shall be very interesting. Have to come up with some pretty cool ideas for the Dec issue and have to wear my thinking cap all the time.

The office is shifting to a new building, further away from Bombay, in some remote place called Belapur. I feel like a villager, working for India’s best technology magazine. I have no TV, no Internet, no fridge even at home! Therefore, I plan to make amends. I shall be moving residence by possibly next month to Belapur. Have already identified a place and spoken with the guy. He is actually a colleague who owns a bungalow. The main attractions are the walking distance to the new office, TV, fridge AND AC! W00t!

Parents coming to town next weekend and am looking forward to it.

Gotta get back to work! Cya ppl!
