Going by historical evidence, it is hereby concluded that an average blogger spends more time thinking of whether to blog, and if yes, what to blog, than on the actual act of posting something. In fact, the posts that actually see the light of the day, or in this case, the face of the reader of the blog from the screen of the computer, take not more than *insert random number which suits you and your posting time here* minutes.
Anyway, you get the idea? This should technically also explain why I am not as regular these days. Because, I think. Yes, sentence over. I think way too much about whether it makes any sense at all to post when all I have to say is blah. Much too high expectations from myself, I think.
That being said, I miss the space, and not everyday do you get time to actually go ahead and post something, while you’re actually working simultaneously. Such is the miracle of IT. You spend two hours on a report, which in the true sense took 30 minutes to open, 45 minutes to save, and the remaining 45 minutes to actually work on. So, this is a good way of utilising those 30+45 minutes.
Today, I am in a generous mood. Today, I intend to acknowledge and appreciate and in general thank those who have made my life happy in the recent times.
First and foremost, I would like to thank The Dude, for returning from his God-awful trip, which I still believe was inhuman, and unacceptable, and hence ensuring that my life is now back to what I call, normal. I am not one who is too fond of ‘something new’, ‘change in routine’. I like stating them as what drives me when I am interviewing for a job (which is not much, because you get it, that would mean a change again), but I believe in letting things be, especially when I have settled down in the state. Some might call this sheer laziness, I think it is cool. And more importantly, comfortable.
Next, I would like to express my overwhelming gratitude to Sameer , The Radio Jockey for the show ‘Recharge with Sameer’ on Red FM, Hyderabad. The detail is to ensure, that in case he does google his name and details in a sudden bout of narcissism, he reaches this place (what, you think that’s not possible? You just wait for my second round of Search items post!), he gets to know that there are some people who thank him for doing what I have been praying for all this while; playing an all Hindi music programme, at a time which is not when only owls, watchmen, and Insomniacs are up at. And at the very time, when I, start my horrendous 1 hour journey through traffic every evening. Sameer, I thank you, Hyderabad Radio thanks you, Bollywood thanks you, The Dude, er, not so much.
I would also like to thank my office people, for diligently distributing, awesome sweets for every festival. I really like the chocolates you guys gave for the last Christmas , and I also liked the dry fruits you gave for Diwali last year. And the sweets for Ramzaan were awesome too. And I am very curious to know what is in the sparkly golden box from Dadu’s, lying next to me, which I will open only when I get home.*
Then, I would like to appreciate The Dude’s trip to London, ok strike that, it doesn’t make sense. Ok, so I would like to appreciate the awesome organic tea that The Dude brought back from London. Seriously, it has taken my liking for weird tasting substances to the next level. I mean, who would have thunk that I would actually drink something that tastes like a perfume, every afternoon, and love it! Well, here it is, I am very happily sipping on my White tea, Elderflower and Apricot flavored tea, and loving it.
Lastly, I would like to thank Andhra Pradesh, for having been formed on November 1st, hence ensuring that we have the day off. Also, considering I have taken tomorrow off as well, this accounts for, a whoop of joy, and a lot of prancing around, and by all that, a long weekend!
With that, I would like to conclude my appreciation and ceremony, and expect special notice of the very non-complaining, and positive, in a not-at-all sarcastic-way tone of this post. Thanks for being part of my happiness, and wish you all a very Happy Weekend. See you on the other side.
* It is dry fruits, my team-mate opened his box, so I know.
