You should look at us right now. Us; the Dude, Zo, and me. We are sprawled across the bed, facing various directions, each of us with a gadget. I am on the Mac, Zo is on the iPad, and The Dude is on our loaded laptop which Zo dropped 3 days ago, and then came running to me telling me about. ‘Mummy, Zo in computer push kiya!’ It took me a while to understand, and even when I did, there was little we could do except stare at the bit that had broken off, turn it on check if it was working and then making a sad face at Zo saying ‘ Look what you did Zo’, to which she made an even sadder face. And that was that.
Anyway, the point behind telling you this, is well, let me think, lack of content ? I had a hard hard day at work which I spent putting together something, and managed to send it for a check. The response was a bit of a downer. Oh, well, it was worse than a downer, I can tell you I guess. It was ‘Try again’. Really, those were the words. While one might think that would depress me, somehow, it is just making me happy that I have a whole night to sleep through before I get back to said thing, and work again. Phew.
The Dude is doing research on where our next vacation destination should be. And every now and then. he calls me to show some random, bloody expensive, supremely exotic destination and says ‘ What about here?’ with a grin. To which I roll my eyes and say, ‘Someday for sure’. I mean it by the way. If there is one thing I really want to do more of, it is travel. See the world, walk around on unknown streets in brand new cities, countries. My answer to ‘what would you do if you get a 100 million dollars’ is usually, invest some of it (that’s the banker’s daughter, and a very sensible person’s wife speaking) so my future is secure, and use the rest for travel. Not a couple of luxurious, 5 star trips, but a lot of economical trips. Sigh.
Zo is watching Tu Ti Tu. I have limited her iPad time to half an hour in the nights, but I cannot deny it altogether. The plus is, she mostly watches this one thing ‘Tu Ti Tu’ which I might have mentioned before, but just to recap it is this red UFO thing which will fly in, and throw parts and pieces of things like buses, phones, ice-cream cones, cakes etc, which will then assemble and form the whole thing. She loves it, and I can never understand why. But atleast it isn’t , I am thinking what I would find offensive, but I would rather play safe and say nothing because you never know what I would allow her to watch in future.
Lastly, I am here doing my duty. My daily post. My Blogathon. I know the quality of the posts is going down (I mean really going down, ignoring mean thought bubbles with a smirking smiley, and a ‘Quality you say, heh!’ ), and when I mentioned this to The Dude, he asked why I didn’t stop? Wasn’t it quality over quantity? And I had a thought bubble with a smirking smiley and a ‘Quality you say, heh!’ (What? I am allowed, you’re not.) But I explained to him the dilemma of having a massive, overactive, unbelievable ego when it comes to things like this, you know, the ones which do not matter at all.
Which is why I am churning out post after post, content or no content, and actually, the moment I stopped bothering about what I was writing, it just became so much easier. Well, that’s the best thing that could happen I guess.
I mean for me obviously. You guys have another 10 days of pure torture to go. *Smirk*
