Stinker

Work Scenario

I am caught up between some stinky projects. Everything seems to be happening at breakneck speed. How I miss those days where I sat staring at some documents flickering on the screen! After sometime, nothing would make sense. To do away with my guilt, I would peep at the next cubicle just to see my colleague doing the same thing or be happier still if she would be staring not at the monitor but at the wall. The documents sometimes would be highlighted in all colors known to man meaning it is the nth version I would waste half a day not thinking what value add I would provide but which color should I use to highlight the changes. The messenger would be flickering silently at one corner. Then I would wait and wait for a respectable time to shut down the system, a day’s work done diligently. Now, work is happening left, right and centre. “Calm seas seldom make a skillful sailor” Nice motivating words! Given a chance, I would like to do something with the projects on the floor. Mutilate, Strangle, jump on them or feed some pigs. But I want my salary and timely hikes with all incentives possible.

Homing:

I have not one but two roomies now. One is from Myanmaar. We all look the same, so why am I even saying this? Anyway, apart from belonging to different countries, we are actually very different in terms of customs, cultures and food habits.

We are using our old mugs for now. So, the theme right now is the “United Colours of Benetton” Our mugs are of different colours, shapes and sizes. Decorative stuffs like wall hanging and soft toys are taken care of by the gifts from our ex-boyfriends. We had a laugh riot fishing it out very shamelessly.

Movies:

Watched a lot of movies. Among the latest, liked 'Iqbaal' and 'No Entry'.

Books:

Catch 22, Vikram Seth’s 'Two lives' in the wish list.

Blogging:

Thanks for the mails and the reminders. Some 5 new readers mailed me saying they have read all the posts so far. Now, shy is coming to me. One of them asked me a very funny question-“why do you want 3 kids and not 4? “ Well, I think 3 is a sexy number :-)

Personal:

J is very angry with me. She is my neighbour now. To face her, I think I’ll need protection. Which is the best helmet brand?

And to end the day and the post, I bought some sexy lingerie. I wish I was superman.

Jas said...

Liked 'NO ENTRY'?!??!?! Guess, as usual belief is "Don’t insult your intelligence by thinking, just laugh". Watched Salaam Namaste...not upto the expectations I guess.. But still watchable...

Stone said...

Superman or Phantom? :-)

Mr. Maverick said...

I liked no entry too! Generally I dont like such movies, but this one I did.

Couldnt get tickets for Salaam Namaste.

claytonia vices said...

Do let us know what you think of Catch-22 when you are done! I tried very hard to read it when in school but found it very hard to understand and gave up...

Jo said...

Have you moved to the new place? J is staying nearby??

Arunima said...

@kay: :-) you are getting real creative.

I was born on the 3rd.
@Claytonis vices: sure

@Jo: yup. we share the same landlady and we haven't spoken to each other for the past one week. She is very angry with me.

Hmm... a very bad week for me as well. Relationship has been changed with a close friend. He is an 'ex'-close friend now.

Hemanshu said...

Work:
Everyone loves to be lazy, so the work scenario isn't new.

Homing:
Well good that you have a couple of roomies. Living alone can be good or bad :(

Movies:
Iqbaal is amazing.. haven' seen No Entry.

Personal:
Hope J forgives you sooner than later (which I'm sure she will).

Enjoy.

Pallavi said...

hahahah good one there... with Superman.. I love lingerie... LOL...

|| sbk || said...

Work is the same every bloody where...

Must be fun with your new roomies.

I liked Iqbal alot but No Entry was okay okay...

Some of the lingerie I own also makes me wish i was Superman..the remaining makes me happy that I'm not.

btw, the best brand of helmet is Shoei and AGV pro..all the best with J..heh heh.

Take Care..Cheers!

tony said...

U pull a nice one with that superman thing, wouldn't know if you are as funny talking. I mean how did it come to ur mind? Anyway it was QUITE FUNNY. I could never write funny stuff.

And,to me, No Entry was a Riot. The timings were just right. That honeymoon scene where everybody ended up at the hotel, i knew it was coming and yet felt so funny. the comedy scenes were extremely well thought. To the point of inviting brickbats to my intelligence, i would say the comedy was not much unlike PG Wodehouse.

And i liked javed in salaam namaste.

Catch 22 is another book that made me laugh like crazy. I seem to be laughing a lot today. Long time since i read it but there is a scene i remember where some kind of pain was being described. goes something like "a pain but not yet a pain.. he had taken a sick leave i believe. Guess, i will read it again.
Iqbal's been the best, though...

Parna said...

let me just co-relate -
sexy lingerie and
you think 3 is a sexy number.....

err....i didn't say a thing, so don't kill me.

s! said...

here's wishig you good times with the lingerie! ;-)

Manish said...

Three is sexy, true. But it can be a nuisance as well :-)

manuscrypts said...

lol@parna, pretty damaging statement... btw, wonder woman would also be an option :)

Dreamcatcher said...

No Entry is kinda brainless no?and your last bit is very funny!

AakASH!!! said...

Lively Writing!

And i realy love your name, it means a lot.

Arunimic...*smiles lightly*

Goan Pao said...

well i guess 3s company and if one is happy with company why would one want to ruin it with four...

well bout the lingerie...what a silly way to waste it by wearing it on top of blue tights...(remember superman)..i bet Christopher Reeve is rolling in his grave at the thought of lingerie being associated with him.

just hope u dont get to frustrated and land up at work with your superman ligerie...

Invincible said...
