Random Thoughts...

Just random thoughts today. Nothing really related.

- Why is it that each time I remove my shoes and get comfortable, someone calls me over to their cubicle?

- Why is Bangalore weather so weird?

- Why do friends, who have come to you during their times of crisis/problem always manage to push you away when something nice is happening to them? Are they really friends?

- Why isn't my cough going away to a far away land? Any far away land will do!

- With my bad throat, why do I ALWAYS feel like eating ice cream?

- What pleasure do people get when they hurt someone? What kind of sadistic human being likes seeing another person suffer?

- Why do I have so much work?

Update on the work front: Transferring my knowledge to another extremely reluctant guy in the team - he doesn't like being told what to do - especially by a "girl"...
Very difficult to work with such people.
I still don't know if my roles/responsibility will change shortly or not...

- Why do I always get such idiots to work with?

- Why is everything so gloomy today?

I feel depressed - no specific reason - it's the work, I guess - thankless and never-ending.
- Is it wrong to feel so ungrateful about it?

Bah!

I am actually quite the opposite..I push my friends away during times of crisis..but talk to them 19 to the dozen when something nice is happening to me..!!

Hope the dark clouds have parted..! :)

Oh oh. Bad health, unhelpful colleagues. Boy. On the bright side, this weekend is the weekend ! :-) Yippee Yeah !

I have an idea in the meanwhile. Plan a holiday to an exotic place, does not matter if you don't ever go. But do the whole hog, get the details right. It always cheers me up :)

Ohh...Bad health , bad collegues , no friends around...plus the temptation to have an icecream and work load too..I can surely identify with it ..Cheer up Pixie ..Go and have a small ice cream ...anyways what more can it do to a bad throat ..at least it will lift your mood ;-)

Pixie said...

@Poppins: YES!!! that did make me smile! I feel better... Exotic holiday - hmmm.. Bahamas, Cayman Islands, Seychelles... Oh! so many places.. :-)
Thanks Poppins! It made me smile and I DO feel better.. :-)

Pixie said...

@Swati: I thought of having an ice cream... that helped. Spoke to friends/hubby and Poppins just reminded me that this weekend THE Wait will be finally over! Harry Potter's 7th book will be out! So that made me feel a whole lot better! :-)
Thanks everyone for the kind words of support!

The same reason why I feel like smoking in the night only when I know there are no ciggies left, even though I never used to smoke in the night when I have ciggies remaining! :)

C'est la vie, it's the way of the World. It's what makes us human I guess :)

I was kinda worried about you for a minute, but I see that you are feeling a little better. Days when everything sucks are the worst!!!
Have I mentioned how it is too bad you live so far away? I know this great little place that makes a great mojito, we could drink and talk and laugh and soon all is well.

Well Pixie, if it helps, let me tell you that you are not the only ones who has to work with idiots! rayshma will vouch for my comment!

How do we know said...

i agree with that.. someone who practically lived with me during her bad times avoided me big time when things sorted themselves out! Am yet to figure out why!

For another person, i just refused to be the shoulder to cry on. Partly bcs i was too disgusted with one person, and partly bcs i was in no mood to be used and chucked again.

@Grail: Sigh... I would love that!! I don't have anyone like that to hang out with and my best friend lives in my hometown...

@Illusioniare: LOL!!

@MJS: Thanks for the vote! :-)

@How do we know: I know exactly what you are talking about...

# 1 - I can so relate to that, that's why I now roam around barefoot here.
