Thank you very much for your wishes :-). I had a pretty good birthday. Recieved calls throughout the day.

We have a cake policy in my team. At the beginning of every month, every member of the team must contribute a certain sum of money so that funds are available to buy a nice big cake when a birthday comes along.We assemble at the conference room, sing and clap as the birthday boy/girl cuts the cake. Then most of the cake is smashed on their face. We then converge towards the remains of the cake like starving psychotic piranhas.I heartily approved of the practice till my own birthday came along.

Now I suffer the agony of a man who knows he forked out 150 bucks to have black forest cake applied to his face like make up. By the time I got the cream out of my glasses, the cake was gone.

I'm supposed to be treating the team next friday. The treats are horribly expensive affairs as we have about 23 people in the team. And we must eat at some place "decent". Decent directly translates to "Bring a credit card along...two wouldn't be such a bad idea actually". Sigh, I used to approve of the system, never thinking of the day I would become a victim of it.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I must announce with mixed feelings that my sister has discovered my blog. While I have had no objections to complete strangers reading my blog, knowing my sister is reading it puts things in a whole new perspective. For this is a person who takes a personal interest in what I think and what I do. Perfectly natural.If my sister had a blog, I would read it to keep tabs on her.


Sigh. First I must dispel any ideas that you, dear sister might have gathered from reading my blog.

.I dont drink

.I dont smoke

.Try as I might, I can't convince attractive women that I'm boyfriend material. I am not seeing anyone. I am just another pavum software engineer leading a blameless life ;-).

There, I think I've got the fundemental things out of the way. But for this, I'm pretty much like any other guy out there. You are welcome to read my blog. You are not welcome to ask questions.

I'd prefer it if you kept what you read to yourself.

Hmm...lets see..akkas can be friends too...y not? :)..what does age have to do with anything..??

But then of course i suppose you really couldnt go and say everything you wanted to one's akka...thatd get a little weird ? hmm...and i guess akkas wouldnt be too comfy with that much of friendship either...

i guess what im really trying to do is argue for both sides .. and fail miserably..thank you very much..:)...

Do we really have to analyse so much ? A blog is after all your own little niche...who gives a damn but about who reads it ? If you really didnt want your sis to get to it, you should have stuck to the diaries with the little silver locks on them...and hang they around your neck.. :P

*Dinesh remains silent :-P*

Deepa said...

Dinesh isnt silent by choice :P..he's been reduced to silence by all the superior female variety around him..lol..or may be he's just wise and doesnt want to get involved here...but i think he's pretty ok with his akka reading his blog..what say you dinesh ?

Kroopa Shah (Kr00pz) said...

LOL, yeah Deepa I think I quite agree. Dinesh, are you scared you will be clobberred if you say something?
