when it rains, it pours


After a fairly long period of uneventfulness, things are starting to look bleak again! Hooray!

‘Business Wait’ (known commonly in the software industry as ‘the bench’) isn’t as much fun as I hoped it would be. I’m certainly not doing the things I should be doing (read, write, think and read some more). Instead, I have perfected the art of whiling away time without anything productive to show for it. I’ve always prided myself in being a ‘conversationist’ (if there is such a term), but now I wonder if ‘motormouth’ is a more apt word.

To add to my woes, Swen and I have a new room mate and I doubt I’ve hated anybody more in the last 22 years. He’s one of those people who can’t seem to hold a thought in his head and blurts out any and every thought/musing that comes to his head! I cannot describe how painful sitting inside the room has become. As a result, we have resorted to techniques like reading/pretending to read, writing/pretending to write, sleeping/pretending to sleep and spending a long long time in the toilet (which is actually quite neat). Damn! should have rented that flat when we had the chance!


Listening to All In by Bridges and Powerlines

PS- My little bro has decided to start a blog as well. Expect heavy handed philosophical discourses and revelations! Just hope he keeps writing. (http://lumeno.wordpress.com/)

Note to self-Write on absurdism, existentialism.

    Did u say thought? If there was any thought that spawned his conversations i could have forgiven him sometime next century.

    I think there is no thought involved at all. Everything just goes straight to the mouth. And no thought after that too.

    Arrrrgggh …!

  9. @ all: I am a person who keeps yappin!! Hmmm… I wonder how many people can’t bear to be with me now!!

    @ PS: Hi Five dude!! I agree toilet is an amazing place to be. I used to study sitting on the pot. I think that was _the_ best place for me to concentrate!

  15. @sid…dude …i forgot her name…but shes on the OST to last kiss…sings a song called papercut or paperback or something like that with joshua radin…check it out

  16. 16 Ms.Imperfect

    @Sid : Exactly the question i wanted to ask…who is she?? Amazing voice tho…adds a lil sumin extra to his songs…his songs wudnt be the same without her!! πŸ™‚

  17. Its Paperweight and the names Schuyler Fisk … but I don’t think she’s the one .. She sounds distinctly different in this song.. However, I could be wrong as in this song she leads and he’s the padding voice.. Its usually the other way round … hmmm … thinking of it that way .. yea maybe she’s the one …

  18. 18 Ms.Imperfect

    I thought the lady who sings “The fear you wont fall” is sum1 called “Priscilla Hartranft”….hmmmm….

  19. hmm .. yea … i told ya she sounds different .. I was talking abt Paperweight. Maybe he goes for different singers each time ….

  20. Hmmm interesting…

    Ted : Finally, doctors, if there is a mistake, don’t admit it to the patient. Of course, if the patient is deceased — and you’re sure — you can feel free to tell him or her…anything.
    (He laughs weakly, but no one in the room laughs with him. He sits and drops his head to his hand.)
