-> I am losing my mind, i think. Or losing whatever remains of my mind. Just today, I came to work, and took the elevator to go to my 3rd floor office. Yes, I am lazy, and cannot climb 3 flights of stairs. In case you ask. So I went in the elevator, and stood there for like 3-4 minutes, after which I started wondering why I am not reaching the 3rd floor. Only to realize I had not pressed the button. So, all this while, I was just dumbly standing in the stationary elevator. I was amused enough at this, to write a post! So, you can image the level of amusement, considering I need tremendous motivation to write something here 😀
-> Why is being opinionated supposedly considered fashion today? Erm, ok.. So, I don’t have any opinions about the Lokpal bill. So what. I mean sure the existence of the bill “seems” better than the lack of it. But I fail to share the excitement of my fellow Indians (who might snigger at me and think..what does she know.. we have been out here, participating in this revolution, making a difference and also, making a mess of the Ramlila maidan). Well, you can snigger all you can, but I do not care about comparisons of patriotism (I have seen such comments/opinions). And certainly not with people who deem it important to make these comparisons, based on what you think of the bill. The only thing that actually got me interested about this whole thing was the integrity and determination of Anna Hazare’s fast. I mean it takes guts to go without food for this long. Totally respect him! Other than that, fiery facebook/twitter messages, opinions… I think they made me yawn and put me to sleep faster than Alchemist (the book) did.
-> I think I am turning neutral. I can (most of the times) keep my prejudices aside and think. A good thing, I feel. I am consciously trying not be fiercely opinionated. I mean I do have opinions, and do voice them, but I have no qualms analyzing the other side and changing my opinion. I think a few strands of white hair does this to you.
-> Almost everyday, I have lunch with my group mates, but about once a week, the husband and I have lunch together, mostly at his workplace. And hence, I invariably end up eating with his work buddies (some of whom are my grad school friends) and manager. There is this Czech guy in the group, and by far, he is the most naturally funny guy I have met. I mean I crack up just seeing him. Very cute as well. (I know, earth shattering fact that had to go on the blog)
-> I think I am the only person around who has not yet seen Delhi belly and Zindagi na milegi dobara. Strangely, I don’t feel like seeing them too.
-> I am almost at the end of “the book thief”.. And I loved it to bits. If I get over my procrastination, I might as well write a review of it. Thanks to yamini’s blog for suggesting the book 🙂
-> We saw Dumb and Dumber yesterday. I am surprised I had not seen it till now. Probably the most gross and one of the funniest movies I have seen recently. Unfortunate that I saw it while having my dinner 😦 .
-> Did I mention that the husband gifted me an awesome lens few weeks back? I had my eyes set on this 105mm f/2D portrait lens for months, and was skeptical about buying it because of the high cost. But I am glad the hubby made things easier ;). I love that we gift each other stuff without any occasion.
Ok, I think this much random stuff has enough soporific content for now. Till then, be good and enjoy the week and the long weekend.
