Oh Look, Krill!

Oh don't worry. Whales don't eat clownfish, they eat krill.


You Didn’t Think I Would Update Did You?

I’m still in denial regarding the end of the HP series. I can’t stop watching the movies, re-reading the books and the fanfiction. OMG, the fanfiction. Lets just say that I’m trying to work out this obsession. So to prevent this entry from degrading into another HP-fest, here’s a little Wednesday Mind Hump meme on ice-cream:

Cone, waffle cone, or dish? – I like all of them actually. If I’m on a shopping trip and want a quick treat, a cone would do but if I’m taking it easy and just chilling out, I’d get a dish.

What flavors (you get three scoops)? – Oooh.. hard choices. I would say, coffee, raspberry ripple and mint. Not much of a chocolate fan.

What toppings? – Nuts and fudge sauce.

Who are you going to share it with? – Depends on who’s interested in sharing. I don’t mind

That was simple wasn’t it? Now, I need to go back to my GoF.

This is What Happens When I Can’t Think Of Something Original To Write

It's pouring outside and almost everyone's left early. I still have another two hours before my yoga class and I'm feeling a little lonely. Here's a Friday Fill-In quiz where I'm still talking about Harry potter:

1. The scent of frying prathas and uncovered sewage makes me remember my childhood.

2. I like to use a lot of garlic and onions when I cook.

3. People talking about Harry Potter spoilers really pisses me off.

4. I've been thinking about Harry Potter lately.

5. The last song I heard that I liked was a song with Spanish words that I heard on radio a few days ago. I don't know the title of the song or who sang it, though.

6. I would love to have a picnic by starlight.

7. And as for the weeked, tonight I'm looking forward to tomorrow's release of Deathly Hallows, tomorrow my plans include waiting for the book and watching OoTP and Sunday, I want to watch Black sheep if I can make it! That is, if I can finish  the book by then.

So how do you like that?

What I Do When I’m Waiting For Lunchtime

Mint tea (pun not intended) does wonders for crampiness.

1. A person is a person.

2. Friendship is important.

21. I smile when I'm happy. Duh!

22. When I am happy, I smile (duh!) and laugh.

23. If only I don't have to work ,then I'll either stay at home (but that would end up being totally boring) or go back to school.

Something From The Archives

I was going through my LiveJournal archives and found an interesting meme that I did a while back.

1. Go into your archive.
2. Find your 23rd post.
3. Find your 5th sentence (or closest to it.)
4. Post the text of your sentence in this post along with these instructions.
5. Tag 5 people for it.

Post #23, 16th May 2006

It never occurred to me that I wouldn’t get in but not having my name on any papers published during my three years working under my boss, may have count for much of their decision.

Hmmm…. Is this a sign of some sort? May be, May be not.
I’m going into my fifth year here and so far, all I’ve got is some skills, including some new ones I just learnt, and nothing to show for it.
On the bright side though, the newly acquired skills have been interesting to do and learn. It’s been a while since I’d done anything new and it’s always good to learn new things. It gets the mind working and flowing, so you wouldn’t stagnate.
I hope that there are bigger and better things coming my way, career wise. As much as I want a bench space for myself to do my work without any disturbance, I want to go forward and finally have a project that is all my own. A project where I don’t have to report to anyone but myself. Though when that will happen, I don’t know.

As for the meme, it’s open to anyone and everyone who wants to do it.
