But I wrote this last week... :-)

If somebody tells me it's a 24-hr day I will say "Go kid someone else." I mean it. I know I am repeating myself for the nth time but I just don’t know how days are passing by! Not that I am involved in some spectacular experiment that will change the face of humanity or whatever...I don’t know what's happening but I seem to be perpetually sleepy...

My normal day begins at 9 am...when I try pushing my body off the bed so as to wake myself up by the impact.
My better-than-normal-day begins at 8.50 am when I realize that I can still sleep for 8 minutes and get up 2 minutes earlier than usual. Every morning I resolve to cut down on the sleep, get up early (by my standards- no unrealistic timings like 5.30 or 6 am) and get some exercise. But the circumstances so conspire against me...Like the clock in the living room is 15 minutes fast which I use for deciding that it's time to sleep...and the bedroom clock which is 5 mins the point?

Ganapati this time was low key compared to past years...I really missed being part of the celebrations. Wish we can be in Pune for the festival next time. Inshallah.

Well, the highpoint of this week definitely was J's visit. Thanks J, it was such a pleasure meeting you. Again the realization hit me hard that A and I are just not spending enough time with friends... :-(

Right now I have become a complete zombie with a very bad cold. It's the dust which is killing me. My nose is red and sore, the head is stuffy and numb, the throat is parched, the mouth is dry and the whole system is in mess. I think my colleagues will stage a protest to send me home. To give them credit, they are considerate but the real thing is this smelly potion "Zinda Tilismath" that I apply wherever I can to get some relief. I don’t know why I am in office today given my high levels of motivation (especially after getting the pay-hike letter). I know I surprise myself most of the times.

ps: With lots of fussing and rest and 2 sick leaves my cold is under control. Thank you.

Hi Kavs,

I didn't know which post of yours I should post this comment of mine on... 'coz I have the energy to give only 1 post today and I just had to say something on this whole fantastic blog of yours. Finally, I chose the post with the least number of comments, which took some searching as you already seem to be very popular going by the number of comments you have been receiving. Wow Kavs! You have a gr8 gr8 g8 style of writing, humorous and cute, masking the seriousness under a whole lot of flippancy. Well the girl Chitra you described, sounded remarkably like you, small petite and with that wavy short hair. How are you doing Kavs? Nice to know you got you rise. Feels gr8 getting int touch with you after so long. Take care. Wish you lots more pay hikes, each one double the previous. :-)
