I'm not in a bloggy mood somehow. I was, say half an hour back, but the entire thought flow has gone and got lost. So tonight's blog ends with this thought:
It's not the end. It's never the end.
[The following was added 5 seconds later. After the first speedy comment made it's way here...]
But as you know now, it's never the end. So here's an interesting tidbit...
Khosla Electronics' special Puja offers that let you buy 17000-rupee LCD TVs for EMIs as low as Rs.600 per month are not extended to police-folk, lawyers, and (hold-your-breath) poor, cash-starved journos. Yes. And that info's straight from the boss's mouth.

I think I'll spend the rest of the morning reading. Eye issues still persist, couldn't meet the doc yesterday. Sigh. Chaap e chaap. Will somebody exchange lives with me for a few days please?

I have an eye infection so am avoiding the comp at home for a while. I wish I could avoid the one at work too :'(
Will return with a big bang once the eye issues clear up.

Being a boss is a good job. You don't have to work. If you're sincere, you just make a show of doing a lot of work. And that's all you need.
Sometime ago this same boss had dozed off, with his head half under the monitor. Us giggly subordinates had tiptoed all the way to his work station to check out the scene.
And he's not the only one. Soon after this dozing off session, we spotted the big boss with his head down on his table. A colleague went over to ask him something, and he raised his head, eyes red with sleep. Of course, this boss works kinda hard, so a nap is forgivable in this case.
There's this other loudmouth senior chap in the office. Thankfully, he isn't our boss and belongs to a different department. Now this guy is something to see, and hard to miss with his protruding belly and loudspeaker-like voice. And all he does throughout the 9-hour work day is read the New York Times website, advise people on everything around the sun, ask over-worked people unnecessary general knowledge questions till they are out of polite answers just so he can show the world how much he knows, and show off the photos he has taken with his 80k-rupee DSLR and posted on his blog just so you have the wonderful opportunity to praise his creativity.
As I was saying, being a boss has many, many perks. Sometimes I feel I'm stuck in the wrong job. I should be a boss too.

This morning, my auto-wala dropped me still closer to office. I suspect he was hitting on me... but I can't be sure.
I saw a very ugly cat on the road today.
My office-buddy-cum-colleague is sick. Now is the right time to go tsk-tsk.
There's this bunch of movies that I want to catch:
- Rock On!!
- A Wednesaday
I don't know when I'm going to get the time. Sigh. There's also an Arabic movie playing at Fame... but that's a lil outta the way.
This is another of those meaningless posts that ramble on.
Wish for the day: A trip to the zoo would be nice.
Wish for the month: Nokia N73... you are going to be mine.
Wish for the year: 120 days -- get over fast!
