Day 20

I know I'm being terribly mean by asking you to call up again and again, but please call naa ... missing you ... don't know why.

A message, from a person whom I hardly know but always enjoy talking to, left me feeling good all day !! Is that strange ?

Day 19

My God ... these QuixStar people are bloody persistent !! Hmmm ...

Day 18

How sweet ... knowing that I'm a complete comment-whore, some ad-bot has left a single comment on all the posts on this page. Isn't that sweet !!?!!

Finally finished reading "To Kill a Mockingbird", after the fourth attempt. Yeah, I agree it's well written and all that, but I don't understand how it can be anyone's favourite book ??! What part of it really stays with you ?

I noticed a number of people on Orkut put up someone else's pic in their profile, and then acknowledge the fact. What I want to know is - why put up a pic in the first place if you don't want to put up your own pic ? More hits ? Losers.

Days 14 through 17

Day 13 - Friday

Work. Dinner. Ho-hum.

Day 14 - Saturday

Mandir. Sai puja. Then to a party. Sloshed. Dancing. Happy.

Day 15 - Sunday

LA. Rehman concert - Thirteen of "us" went, but "I" went with Tush and flatmate. Total hit. Clearly, I'm most comfortable being an Indian. Interesting discussions with the two of them on the drive back - marriage, sexuality, the desire to go back to India, masturbation, friendships.

Day 16 - Monday

Car in the workshop. Am driving a Mazda 5 van !! Damn ... I'm a soccer mom !!

Day 17 - Tuesday

Exercise started - FINALLY !! No turning back now.

Of course, in the midst of all these days, I know I had a number of thoughts I wanted to put down here, but I guess those will just have to wait till they come back. In standard news, work remains a killer.

Day 13

I go through the motions as well, but at the end of the day, is there a meaning to my life ? Is there anything that drives me, or am I just one of the millions who will look back at a lifetime and have but a handful of days to recall ?

Likewise, does my life really make anyone a difference ?

Day 12

Dinner at AJ's parents' house last night (on day 11) proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that I have an almost unending capacity for making small talk.

Not being invited to dinner at Ssha's place tonight, even though flatmate was called, makes me think I really should make some more friends. Also, I realize that it's better not to get bugged than to fret about something this minor.

Watching 30 minutes of "15 Park Avenue" makes me understand why Shabana Azmi is considered such a rockin' actor !

It was almost amusing to watch people fight over a piece of land as small as an office. Countries invading and taking over other countries suddenly does not seem all that insane.

Finally, while I am perfectly ok with the ex talking about how she is having a great time with the guy she is now seeing - more so because I do not get the least bit jealous, thus strenthening my feeling that it was best that I ended it when I did - I simply must draw the line when she says something to the effect of "We didn't do it do it ... but, you know" !! Fear of comparison, or just plain creepy ? Just plain creepy !!

My word ... such revelations.

Day 10

Huh ... where's Day 9 go ? Well, since I fell asleep listening to the "madhur" tunes of flatmate practising the guitar, day 9 was not posted about. Not that that made much of a difference ... the day was duller than ... than ... than listening to new parents go on and on and on about the wonderful antics of their children ... what fun !! I really hope I never turn into one of those parents.

God bless everyone who had to go through or lost someone in the Mumbai blasts. And a huge thank you to mumbaihelp.blogspot for mobilizing help faster than any "main stream" media could ever dream of doing. And to thing blogs like those are not considered important. Rubbish.

Had gone to the mandir today when I ran into Pipa ... saw her after 8 years ... and it was like not a day had passed. Seriously ... school friendships are the most chilled in life. Probably because we all became friends when there weren't any defense mechanisms in place.

In other news, a consultant is now sharing my office. Ugh. I hadn't realized how used to I had gotten to having my own space. And this is all the worse since I will have to share an office when I move to WC. What if my office mate is totally dull in life? - such a horror that would be.

My God ... I'm such a bitch.

Day 8

It's Sunday - I'm at work. Yesterday, I was at work. Last weekend, and on the 4th of July - work. N, too, was at work this morning ... of course, he was in NYC ... yes, I'm jealous. We were cribbing about having to be at work, and he asked me - "When did work become so important?"

I really wish the answer was - "It didn't", but we would both know that's not true.
