ok, I am sick and tired of this project, job and my so-called seniors, superiors or whatever you
want to call them... I have been sitting late - EVERY DAY and working and re-working and analysing and testing the damn product for the past 2 months... These past couple of days, have been eventful with fights, accusations and finger pointing.. and remarkably, I have kept my cool - i.e. till today. Today, I lost it... he asks me to sit till 10 or whatever time it takes for the work to complete!! I mean, yesterday I reached around 9:30 and had to deal with drunk auto drivers and I was so scared!!! I told no - I will not sit so late, so now I'm branded as un-cooperative and that I'm not a team player!!

Assholes, I tell you - all of them..They are simply playing games and it's not funny at all to be made the scapegoat...
If you have anything supportive to say, the comments place is yours, if you are trying to be troll-like and supportive of the damn idiots I work with - BUZZ OFF!!!

(ok, I feel better now after all that ranting, but the situation is bad...very bad)

Tags - Part One!!!!

Here come the tags!!

First one -
Material Possessions I absolutely cherish. As anyone would guess, I have a LOT of them! So, picking out the best ones!!!

---> My Bharathanatyam Gejjes (Anklets) and thaala (not sure what it is in English!). I saved
money for almost a year back in degree to buy these 2.
---> My desk at home. It's got 3 desk drawers filled with stuff right from scholl days till date. All
the greeting cards, gifts, trinkets I have ever received are safely stored in them.
---> My stuffed toys here at home. Both Hubby and me love them and he has bought me all
these lovely toys!
---> My dinner set that I received as a wedding gift from my Dad's colleagues. It's beautiful -
in white with red flowers at the border.
---> The Archies perfume my husband got me after we officially started dating! I still have the
bottle even though the perfume is all used up!
---> When I was in 6th or 7th Std (not sure which), I had fell sick with fever and my sis - she
was in Kindergarten or 1st Std had given me a paper card, with a heart in pink saying "I
love u; get well soon"
---> A dress my dad got me when I was in college - the dry cleaners misplaced the top, but I am
hanging on to the rest, hoping I get a match to it!
---> My mom has given me this bowl - to mix rice in - it's steel and its pretty old.
Every time I mix rice and masala in it - it ends up tasting like my mom's cooking!
---> I wear my husband's t-shirt - it's old, its a mix of orange and green and I will not throw it
The actual story is - when I saw him wearing it for the first time in college - it was the first
time I realized that this guy - my best friend actually has a very sexy chest!
(ok, he will kill me for telling this on this blog first and not to him!!!)


The second one!
The list of simple things in my daily life which makes me happy!

- The good morning hug from my husband as soon as we wake up
- Drinking the hot cup of chocolate milk early in the morning while getting ready for work
- the daily phone call from my mom
- when my husband/sis tell me that whatever I have cooked is delicious
- As I go to work - on the way there is this lake - to see the sun raising and to see its glittering
rays dance along the water surface
- Going shopping with my sister. It's always huge fun and she manages to help me pick stuff in
which I look great, but normally wouldn't buy!
- Going home to Mysore and seeing that my mom has made my fave breakfast.
- Eating chocolate ice cream and walking hand in hand with my husband
- Eating at Sikander in Garuda Mall - love the food there
- An impromptu "i love u" sms from the hubby in the middle of a hectic day.
- Being tagged and seeing the same set of people coming back to read my blog again and again :-)


Blogging Buddies (This one is from Grail)

1. Grail: She is inspirational and one of the nicest human beings I have come across in life.

2. Rayshma: My "Tag" buddy! She always remembers to tag me and she makes me laugh always! and i'm sure that if
we did meet - we would giggle and laugh all thru!!

3. Swati: I like the simplicity with she writes, she never fails to comment and it seems like she is an old friend

4. Vicky: He was one of the reasons I started blogging! It took him more than a year to convince me that I should be blogging because its the natural thing to do! I haven't met him in 2 yrs and I really hope that we both get the time to meet when he comes down to Bangalore/Mysore next time

5. My sis: She is my support system. She is a nut, weird and extremely lovable!

I tag anyone and everyone who wants to take this up. But, I do want to tag Grail on the materialistic possessions tag!

I'm still here!

Yes, I'm still around!! Blogs are blocked again at work... Had a lot of issues to deal with at work - and it's gotten hectic and the damn guy I work with has this really stupid ambition of trying to keep in office as late as possible... frustrated idiot!
I am so behind with my posts - I have 2 tags to pick up from Rayshma and one from Grail...

Will do them for sure... for I love them tags and tagging people!!!

Also, domestic issues in the name of an errant maid has made me look for a new one again! *sigh*

Had so many thoughts in my head, you know - the kind you want to post, but when I actually sit around to type them - they seem to have leaked out of my head...

Had plenty of arguments in my head - abt quitting this job - but, the sane side one the argument so I'm sticking along and actually have started enjoying the ride...
Also, our second yr anniversary is nearing... (it's Mar 1st people!)
Not quite sure as to how to celebrate - because we are tied up on the financial front and cant afford to go roaming abt places!!
But, I still want it to be romantic but not expensive... *such a lot of constraints really*

Not yet sure what to gift my husband either (ideas are welcome here!)

Will get around to posting the tags and the photos soon - i just need a couple of hours free - undisturbed time in front of the system!

Also, a friend who stopped talking to me 2 yrs ago - around the time I got married is again in contact. Not sure what to make of it though....

Signing off now - will be back with the tags soon...

Edited to add: I'm not whining here... I am actually fine with all the chaos around me - which includes a bucketful of dirty laundry!! :-)
