Namma Uroo Bengaluroo? Not yet.

27Dec06

I’m sitting at my work station and I’m afraid I’ll fall asleep any moment now. That wouldn’t be too cool so I’ve decided to write.

I’ve been severely sleep deprived for the last few days and things have been going very very wrong ever since I set foot in this place. It all started with my SIM not working, then my ATM card not responding and finally my ID card not being accepted at work. I smell a conspiracy and to top it off I think I may be catching a cold (so much for conspiracy smelling!)!

The icing on the cake was when I realised my office was a long way off from the city. An hour if I take the bus and two hours if I go by bike (thanks to my keen directional skills). The bike ride has induced severe wear and tear of certain regions of the anatomy and has increased my already receding hair line.

Now, things aren’t as bad as I make them seem. The toilets at my work place are amazingly spotless and I have great friends in Bangalore who for some wierd reason don’t scream at me when I lose my way around but just play along and pick me up no matter where I am.

Bad attempts at sarcasm aside, I had a pretty neat Christmas thanks to somebody who actually humored me by listening to me ramble on all night long. I love conversations that seem to be profound but in the end are just pointless! 🙂

Thanks to Guru, I don’t have to go apartment hunting and I may soon move into an apartment with Arijit, another blogger! It’s amazing how I’ve met so many people through the net; and they say the internet kills interpersonal interactions. Bah! Humbug!

Crap! Writing isn’t helping…I still feel like going to the lobby and plopping onto the sofa!
