And the day begun with...


Mithun calling me up at 8:53 in the morning as he was about done packing his bags for India. All of six weeks that boy is going to spend in different parts of the country - I sure hope he enjoys his time there. After many histrionics, adventures in ATM usage and a last minute diary pickup, we made it to the airport and Mithun actually boarded the plane on time. Topped off the morning eating brunch with Donna who gave me a ride back to Redmond in the evening.

The highlight of the day though has to be my haircut - it is the best haircut I've ever had in the US - all-time even - and I owe my thanks to the Duck-walker. She's a great hair stylist, knows my hair very well and it felt so good to go back to her after so many months. I've set up a regular appointment with her now for a cut once a month.

In other news, thanksgiving dinner was really good albeit non-traditional - it was more like a Diwali dinner 'coz everything on the menu was Indian. We cooked, ate and then watched Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. I didn't quite understand the movie but then again, I was pretty buzzed after four glasses of white wine.

One word that summarizes today - fulfilling.

To Sleep Or Not To Sleep


It is 5am and I can't get no sleep.
I can't get no sleep
I can't get no sleep

Oh well, I'll try once again. Mind full of random thoughts. I wish I could stop them from buzzing around. Shit, today is a work day. And damn that, what did I read about not sleeping making you fat - aah, I have that covered already, I am FAT :)

Too little sleep may make you fat

:Link to Article:
Too little sleep increases the chance of becoming obese, a study has claimed.

People burn fewer calories asleep, so it might seem to be counterintuitive that more sleep prevents weight gain.

But it was found people who slept four hours or less per night were 73% more likely to be obese, possibly because of effects on appetite hormones.

Key advice for some people I know - to everyone out there - sleep well and don't ever question why I sleep so much ;)

Is this the beginning of the End?

:Link to Article:
A new battle over "indecency"? Really, come now - not airing one of the greatest wartime movies made in the last decade - the only thing indecent about the movie was the fact that 66 affiliates of ABC networks chose not to air the movie. Big hooptie-do I say! I'm so glad Comedy Central censors nothing...

Big Brother really is watching, controlling and dictating what we do, see and know in America these days. Do I hear the Liberals sighing in the corner - oh no, that's just me...

Kerry Concedes Election to Bush: Hopes fade...

:Link to Article:
"Bush was favoured among white men, voters with family incomes over $100,000 US and evangelical Christians who view him as a messenger from God in a titanic fight to quell terrorism and spread liberty around the world, while Kerry was the overwhelming favourite of black voters, Hispanics, union households and was supported by many younger voters."
Woteva... I heard some people comment - Four more years with the monkey?!

My New Job

:Link to Article:
It has been nearly two weeks since I started my new job and I'll say this, I LOVE it. I was at work till nearly 11pm last night (14 hours) and had that Aha-Aha feeling while driving home - that feeling has been so overdue that it was overwhelming. Let me break this down for you - my new job lets me do the one thing I truly enjoy - interacting constantly with people. My singular passion is helping people be it fix their problems, their computers or their bugs and this job lets me do all of that, and then some.

But there's more reasons for my reformed work life - I have friends on the team, I really enjoy working for my new manager and having like minded people around you at work is essential (I'll vouch for it). And here's the shocker, drum roll please, I have a human schedule - early to bed and early to rise, by my standards at least - in bed before 1am and in the shower by 9am :)

So there you have it - my current situation rocks...
