Bliss in Life


*She gave a call yesterday, actually it is not that way, first she gave a call at my "Star Tac" which
gives an "Insert Card" after slight movement while I was away to market fishing for some cheapo
CDs, and then i gave her a "call" back after returning which *She didnt pick up since *She knew
i dont have balance left :( and then *She gave me a call.


It was good news, *She will be joining a good company in a month and was happy as well, I was
happy for her too.For last 1 month i have been thinking how is *She taking my "shit" about me
being happy about my admission while *She was having problems at her workplace.


Sometimes we go overboard with "our" personal "Highs" and tend to forget people around us and rather than enjoying
these moments with them we tend to stand on pedestal and try to look down at them.Same applied to me after 3
appraisals i had at my workplace, there were people around who were having teething troubles with PLs and here I
was gushing Non Stop over my "acheivements".


Raol who sits next to me is an MS from North Carolina and we are developing good vibes abot each other, may be one of
these days we will go for a glass of beer, Although similarities between us are few and far between.
He wants to pursue PhD in "Formal Methods in Research" while i would like to do same in "How to make shit load of Money" :)
He loves Iron Maiden and I like Dire Straits, he calls me a man from 80's who refused to "grow" up
He is tall , 6 '2 and i am something like 5 6.
But we love life and thats what it takes to be friends with people around


Although I know for sure that he is concerned by charade i have with chandra who also sits in same cubicle :))

Saturday is being spent in dreaming about things I ll do now after i finish up my official assignment.
CDs cutting exercise went smoothly and without any hiccup of any sort.
Hey god when will i remove shackles of having Pasta @ Casa Picola everyday mmmmmmm its so gooood

Dire Straits

Group has special significance for me, was in fifth grade when i listened to Knopfler, incidently was my first English Cassette (or was it Paula Abdul!) and i was hooked to it for couple of reasons. One it was expensive (Rs 45 if i am not wrong) and becasue knopfler is so unlike others, i mean u can say he reminds us of Dylan but Dylan never played in Pubs did he? Punk/Pub Rock came to fore in eighties and died by the time I went to high school. Mark drove on, however persona still had Dire Straits in music for sure.Sometimes a single man decides the course of a Band and after he is through with it, its him who has changed instead. An irony unique to Dire Straits.

Am listening to my favourite "So Far Away"

Here I am again in this mean old town
And you're so far away from me
And where are you when the sun goes down
You're so far away from me


So far away from me
So far I just can't see
So far away from me
You're so far away from me


I'm tired of being in love and being all alone
When you're so far away from me
I'm tired of making out on the telephone
And you're so far away from me


So far away from me
So far I just can't see
So far away from me
You're so far away from me


I get so tired when I have to explain
When you're so far away from me
See you been in the sun and I've been in the rain
And you're so far away from me


So far away from me
So far I just can't see
So far away from me
You're so far away from me


Even got a video on LAN, most people tend to underplay brit rockers (except Jagger) Sex Pistols, Dire Straits,Oasis
Man they have the talent jus "Money Engg" is missing somewhere.

Tuesday- rhymes with hmm Bluesday
Tuesday happens, this is in start contrast with Mondays, You actually go through Mondays thinking about your weekend.
But no such luck on Tuesdays, add pending work form last week to that as well.
*She* mailed in morning but i was in such a muck i couldnt mail her back till late afternoon
Will I be able to stand her "Non Availability" in case she is busy tomorrow, thats very important
to know since i am very testy as far as attention grabbing goes.
Asked Hari about subjects I have to take at FMS, me thinks books will have to be arranged pretty
soon as well
