Mood Swings

I sure woke up on the wrong side of the bed today. Wait, there is only one side of my bed that I can get off from, so I couldn't imagine what was eating me today. No, it wasn't PMS either. Today I was exceptionally irritable. I could have bitten off the head of anyone who would've even dared to rub me the wrong way. So, I tried to keep my interaction with human life to a bare minimum. I'm not a pleasant sight and sound when ticked off. I feel bad for a poor colleague of mine whom I almost snapped at, but restrained myself by biting my tongue. Yeah, I did sound a little abrupt though, and I'm feeling all miserable about it. Meh.
And, what did I do to cool myself off, I resorted to divinity. I went to mosque and prayed for peace, not world peace silly, peace of my mind, which I think counts as world peace too. I'm the kind of person who thinks of God as and when required. I would put Kabirdas to shame, who asked us to do sumiran in sukh also no? Cluck all you want, I'm guilty as charged.
It's my last week at my current workplace, I think that's sort of depressing the hell out of me. I've spent three years and three months there, I'm gonna miss it alright.
Sigh, so that's that, my contribution to the collective depression in the world, I'm sure someone else somewhere will be in an opposite mood and counter the existing depression. Yin and yang.
Dan Brown will be proud :)

Daddy.. Daddy Cool

No No this post is not about my daddy as the title suggests, its just that this song is stuck in my head. (And my dad's not cool that way :/) It was playing in repeat mode in the restaurant I just came back from. I didn't know what else to title this post. Somebody's running out of attention grabbing headlines eh.?
Anyhoo I'm back from a long hiatus. Under normal circumstances in a hiatus, people take a vacation from work and then get back. As Fido Dido would say - Normal is boring, so what I've done is while I was on my blog break I quit work and now I'm gearing myself up for a vacation where I'm going to be out of my head back in a bit :) Yay.
Yeah Yeah, its gonna get to me after a while lazing around, being a pain in my folks' collective behind. I will do something about my life soon as soon as I figure out what I want to do. Pretty aimless for a person heading towards mid-twenties you would say. I couldn't agree more. Money is gonna be a problem for a while, so I'm open to charity and free lunches. My shopaholicism needs to be curbed, or perhaps cured if I want to survive till I make something of myself. Therefore, I'm even open to gifts of the material kind from people who want to repay all the good things I've done for them. *grin*

When Pigs Fly...

When I used to make a statement like that, who knew that my prophecy would come true one day. Pigs are flying indeed! All over the bloody place. Till this morning I thought we were relatively safe from the dreaded swine flu, but statistics proved otherwise. So far, 7 cases and counting in Chennai. I was under the illusion that the flu is under check, which is far from true.

I am so paranoid about this whole thing, me being prone to constant colds and what not. Its unbelievable that in this age and time when technology knows no bounds, we're still struggling to find a vaccine for the fast-spreading epidemic. It's pitiful, its sad, its scary!

I know this post is morbid, but so are my thoughts right now. That's by far the only thing that I can think about today :(

Unravelling Life's Mysteries

Every morning as I drag myself to office, in the chugging train, I dwell over LIFE. Yeah yeah, I'm sure thats really hard to believe. I'm a thinker, I spend at least 50% of my waking hours only thinking, is it any surprise that I hardly get work done :p There are questions that pop up every now and then to which I seek answers, sometimes I'm actually better off not knowing the answers for the fear of facing reality. Yes I'm also a person in denial most of the times. I see things the way I want to see them, with a set of rose-tinted glasses coloring my vision.
So, I think about stuff like, am I ever gonna be passionate about my career. For the life of me, I still haven't been able to figure what it is that I'm good at :( I really look up to people who take their jobs seriously and climb the success ladder effortlessly. I'm still waiting for my calling. But who knows, I won't recognize it even if it stares me in the face.
Love, is something else that I think a lot about. Is it for real? Is there such a thing as a soulmate? Then why do people fall in and out of love like they're boarding the local train. Why do they become unfaithful to the one person who they supposedly love?
Ahem.. OK OK who the heck wants to listen to my gobbledygook anyway? :/ So I shall stop here and get back to my thinking ;)

Rakhi ka Swayamvar

Once in a long long time, there comes a TV show that leaves a lasting impression on your mind. It not only leaves an impression, but a permanent deep dent that no amount of tinkering and plastering can restore. One such show is the recent "Rakhi ka Swayamvar". The whole drama-shama has left the country in a tizzy, or so Rakhi likes to believe. What I like to believe is there couldn't be a bigger farce in the name of Reality TV. Who are the producers kidding? Do they expect us to believe the bull crap that they serve in a silver plate with a golden spoon.

Rakhi - The botox-ed, collagen-ed, silicon-ed and whatever-ed item girl, who has been apparently disowned by her entire family (Now, why the heck doesn't that surprise me?), has chosen a groom for herself in front of the camera and in the process made a spectacle of herself and lets face it, even of our country. Sigh.. I am still receding from the horror of it all. Next post when I recover hopefully....
