Half the week is over....

The eternal Optimist.
Halfway through Wednesday....

That's half the official week gone... (I may have to do a working weekend.. but I never factor that into my calculations).
So we're half done!! :-)

Got in at noon - rushed onto a Conference call with Lydia, Russel, Andy, Jags, Brenda, Parijat.... and the rest of the gang. 45 minutes used up... and we're still aimless

The Video Creation project is an impenetrable jumble of poorly organized data with cryptic labels to boot. In layman terms - holy crap!!!

I have a busy day planned ahead.. con calls starting at 8:30 PM till midnight.
The IIS 6.0 project is coming along fine.. Burton(VSTS) is driving us up the wall... MOM 2005 is almost done....SMSg is a wait'n'watch now. Paul should be responding today.

I have picked up this book on Warships... from 1860 to the present day - Interesting read... more like a category wise explanation.. even has some of our Naval ships in it !!!
Think I'll make another blog on Warships.

Lonleiness is catching up... don't like going home any more
I thought I'd be fine esp since I read this article of Single 'uns like me - being go getters and not relying on the group phenomena for films, clubbing etc.
Thought it made sense at that point of time. Now I feel otherwise.

Am planning to go for the Mark Knopfler concert when it happens in Mumbai. I'm not an extreme DS fan, but I like their rhythm and think it makes sense to go for it. Opportunities don't come all the time.

If life was a Hollywood film... the action would be intense,
It's actually closer to Bollywood... with the same people and the same stories.

Giving up on real life opportunities to create the iconic twists, the hallmark of great cinema and it's storytellers. If every story had the same ending, how would one imagine the what-ifs of life?

Some stories come out best when they start with an ending. It makes for more poignant stories when you deal with certain characters. There is an element of drama on an unfulfilled love story or unrequited love too.

The mundane is never enough for some of us. The happily ever after is an ending from the fairytales of the brothers Grimm.

The piano man

Sitting bored in the mall when we could be shopping for her gift. The lady is on an official call, so I'm sitting by the wayside observing the man in the centre of the atrium. He's playing a piano. Hence the name - piano manHe's playing a melody oblivious to the sea of humanity around him. No mean task as it is. His tunes run a plethora of melody with no fixed agenda as it is. He looks around hoping someone would make a request - but the crowd treats him like they would an invisible entity. There's pain in the back of his mind and heart. Nothing hurts an artiste more than invisibility. He never knew he'd end up like this playing the walking melody to thousands. His music had always been planned on the good graces of melody with people singing in chorus.
That things did not go as planned, well no surprise there. Circumstance might have been fortuitous had he been willing to bend over. Ever the true blooded artiste, he'd chosen the path less traveled.Now the wai…

All the formative years were spent here, and we did form up well at the end of it. Today, people say that the Campionites are quite snooty and snobbish. Never really felt it at that point of time. We had a mixed crowd and more …
