Long Vacation!!

Before I start publishing my posts - HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY! :-)


Ok, I am back after a loooo...ng break and the reasons are
1. All the blog sites have been blocked at work ($#@%#$%^!) and we still don’t have internet at home… so basically, it sucks not having access to blog, blog-surf .
Also, even if I did have access at work – I have been swamped with a lot of things and have been very busy.
(Yes, I got the change I had asked for! And a raise!!! Yippee!!)
The new work is pretty taxing and tedious – but, it’s a change I wanted…
(Now if you think a rant is not coming, you are wrong! That, I’m quite sure will happen pretty soon too!!!)
I know I'm a month late on this - but, I still thought I'd put in my thoughts -
Now, has everyone read the new Harry Potter book? Did you all like it? The hype which surrounded the book – well, the actual book, I felt didn’t live up to it…
(Now, please don’t say rude things or bash me up on this… because I am a Harry Potter fan – and I have been waiting for the very last book since the day I finished reading the 6th book)
I still feel the sixth book was better – it was darker… the 7th book is a happy book – but she leaves so many things unsaid –
-> What happened to the Durselys?
-> How do Tonks, Lupin die?
-> What did Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny become after finishing school?
Don’t get me wrong – I loved the book and didn’t put it down till I finished it, but so many questions were answered and so many were left unfinished….

Also, my sister has done a post on Women’s rights and abortions here - http://wisegirl109.blogspot.com/
Go on and check it out…
It’s right on so many levels and people will have different opinions, but what she says kind of makes sense…

Grail tagged me to talk about things which I admire in others so that’s coming up next (I know it was so long ago, but I'm still taking it up)
This post is done at work - since today is a holiday we have access - but our team has to work today...
