Woke up to find that the power authorities had suddenly realised that we had not been plagued by a single power cut for the past x months. So khaachaaak – power cut. No power –> no hot water -> brrrrr -> probable cold -> probable cough -> probable fever -> and the list goes on.
Having dispensed with my ‘bath’, I now turned my attention towards cooking. And realized how difficult it is to even cut vegetables in semi-darkness let alone cook. After lots of unladylike swears (er...did I ever say that I was ladylike?), I managed to get it done somewhat to my satisfaction. Have to find out during lunch if the baaLekaayi was cooked or not.
The bus-driver proved to be yet another sadist – he came a full three minutes early while I was still at the corner. So......whooooooooorrrrr..... marathon run with arms, bags and dabba flapping (do you still need a reason for an earthquake?), aaauuuunnnddd success (at last) ......caught the bus. Got a painful reminder of how little I exercise (On an afterthought, do I really need it?).
My best friend at work - I am referring to my PC here – was feeling quite cross with me (two days of ‘painful’ separation and all) and decided to act all weird. So, two restarts, numerous hang-ups (I mean literal ones) and several disconnected Internet sessions later, I got down to typing an e-mail. Wow...... my patience increaseth by leaps and bounds!
Just when the situation was under control, I made it all the more ‘better’ by stretching out my legs and disconnecting the LAN cable. Great! Simply great ! That’s just what I needed to make my day ! Formed a corollary of one of my life’s fundas – no man or machine or situation is worth losing your temper.
But then, there’s something which stops me from blowing the top.......
The weather outside is simply too glorious to describe........
