Well, I am bored. Its not that I have nothing to do. Tons of pending work. Appraisal time in office. Self appraisal, feedback to peers - busy times ahead. Got to use fancy words like proactive, diligent, seamless, independent, assertive et all. Yet, I dont feel like writing them.Sigh!!
My mind wanders and my fingers stroke the key; ALT-TAB between appraisals, facebook, blog and Google. (Typing facebook gives me a red wavy underline. They better include it as a noun in the Oxford English dictionary)
Well, you know its got to be there when you verb it off. I hear this in office quite often. Facebooking is better than orkuting da. So must be the word Twittering. No! no! I am not on twitter yet. I go paranoid hearing people having lakhs of followers. My good friend says she just has less than 590 followers and that number is negligible it seems. I just responded with a :-)
I might not get even a mosquito to follow me! Aah mosquito! I thought Sachin got out in yesterday's match due to mosquito menace. Two or three were hovering around him while he was batting and the poor soul was shooing them away. What if Sachin is God, he still has that meal for those mosquitoes.
Whole of India probably came to a stand-still yesterday; at office as well. 6 huge TVs were not enough! I was begged not to speak anything derogatory or discouraging about team India. Its not that I am unpatriotic. Its just that I cant fake! Well, they won; else my husband would have cursed me.
Looking around my bedroom, I better organize few stuffs here. Its messy but I am bored. I think lazy is a better word. I have many books to read. One of them is a collection of beautiful poems; another Paulo Coelho's. There is this The Language of the Goddess - book on European pre-history w.r.t archeology and also my D7000's manual. When would I read all of these?
Need to replace my laptop; would go for a MAC this time. Need to order, take backup of data from this laptop, charge my iPod, buy a battery charger plug for my Xperia and get a SD card of larger capacity for my camera. Pending! pending! pending!
What have I been doing then? Staring at a blank wall or this laptop screen; lazy bum I am! I am told I spend lot of my time online; but the truth is I dont! I just stare at the screen! My laptop and I are "Until death do us apart". Obviously my husband detests this darling of mine.
I am not blogging much either. My frequency has reduced; a blogger friend asked me why have your reader numbers dropped? numbers again! He was doubtful if I stopped visiting them; he reminded me how at one point I had lot many readers. You know how it works here - you scratch my back and I scratch yours.
I could only read if I get something substantial out of it - knowledge, entertainment or joy! But I have not stopped visiting anyone. Its just that most of them have vanished from blog world either because they got busy with something else or they moved to shorter and smarter world of Twitter. And yeah no more creative juices flowing in could also be the reason. Whatever, if any of you guys have read till here; I pity you.
You might have realized now that there is nothing substantial in this post. I warned you with my title!! Insignia does get into this zilch mood once in a while :) and I feel nice when my fingers are playing on this keyboard and aah I am so in love with this laptop. Got used to her so much that I can close my eyes and still type on everything right. But she has reached her expiry long ago; I am still clinging onto her because I am attached to her. But I will have to let her go. Soon! and welcome the new man in my life - The MAC
Blogging is therapeutic as always. It does better job than a masseur. I am done!! and I am gone!...
