Winter Blues

I hate ranting on the blog.. but I have been, a lot lately, and I feel very comfortable doing that.. being a keyboard warrior.. muahahaha!

Well... now.. the winter is being a bitch this year. It's not even officially winter yet you know, but maximums are already in the minuses (word?)!! wtf? I guess I have no one to complaint to but 'us' the humans. Summers scorching hot, and Winters freeze every one's balls off.

at least, I'm packing to go to a hotter destination... sri lankaaah!

Men who Fart

in public..

well they all do.. loudly and very publicly..

I've encountered it many a time. I mean the men who are close to me. the boy friend for example, has no sense of where we are or whether I'm in the room or not or anything.. yeah the shy and more careful times are long gone, so it's carefree? yes yes.. It's okay to fart, I'm sure everyone does. so do I duh!
but may be in the washroom or somewhere more private??!? pollution I say..

they are pretty much oblivious to their surroundings when it comes to farting I gather..

anywho, my arm's getting better by the way. thanks for asking!

My H1N1 Arm

I open my work email this morning to a "no line ups at the clinic today".. and that's the h1n1 vaccine and regular flu shot clinic. I've never got a flu shot before, but as the death toll of h1n1 started rising every day a part of me started convincing myself that I should at least get just the h1n1 shot.. mainly because I absolutely hate getting sick (I'm sure everyone is), and this one particularly said to be one of the worst.

Since the shots became available to all general public I was quite hesitant in getting it, mainly after watching this video of the cheerleader who's now suffering from a neurological disorder after getting the flu shot. But I mean, what's real and what's not?!?! plus they (whoever they are - i think W.H.O) claims that there has not been any severe complications from the h1n1 vaccinations.

As my upcoming travel plans and germy airports came to my mind I thought what the hell, I'm only going to get the h1n1 shot and since they are announcing that the line ups have died down and I don't want to be sick during holidays, off I went to the clinic during my lunch hour. After only about a very decent 15 min wait I get the shot - obviously on my non-dominant arm.. wait for 15 minutes to see if there are any after effects and that sorta thing, and I'm back to work with kind of a sore arm.

oh boy does it hurt now..! I can barely raise my arm.. had quite a difficult time taking clothes off to jump in the shower, and putting them back on.. I'm almost leaning towards taking ibuprofen or acetaminophen.

argh, why do I take these things upon me!!!?!? stupid pig!

most wanted?

I guess I mentioned in my earlier post... I changed jobs during the Summer.  long over due and  it was about time that I quit that horrendous previous job of mine that did me no good.. be it mentally, physically, or career-wise.. no ladder to climb upwards or sideways.  i mean don't get me wrong, they were super nice people and helpful etc. etc. but the job was just not satisfying and I was miserable doing it.

after few months of somewhat intense job hunting for my so called perfect dream job (recession was a bitch and still is I suppose) I found a decent job at an extremely decent employer.. and moved house too!  not a huge pay raise or anything but, very self satisfying, with a few perks that comes along with it.

anyhow, so today I emailed my previous co-worker/supervisor to mention something on the news.. and I get a reply within the hour..
"How's the job going for you? Any chance you want to come back here = ) I still have a job for you!!

You really can have your job back, but as better version of your job!"

I guess they really miss me there now dont they.. felt quite special though..

fortunately or unfortunately i had to say.. thank you but no thank you!

life happened.. sort of..

yes i abandoned you again.. i promised not to. i know i did.. way too many things fell on my plate, or rather I made them fall right in to my pots and pans..

I gave it up almost, still i call myself a citizen of my good old sri lanka, but i did give up and become an alien resident of this foreign land. for a better what? yet to see? hmm may be.

every night as i go to bed, i think of you and so much runs through my head to jot down but whilst half dreaming I fall asleep and the routine goes on. changing jobs wasn't helping either. took a majority of my free time.. restricting me to a very minimal, check email go to bed routine. slave of time baby slave of time..
