I know! So don't try nagging about it. I've been silent a long time, and for people who miss writing in their diaries, I'm sure they understand the pain I feel. (Think along the lines of "I'm sorry dear diary" letter-starters.) Unfortunately, My diary (read journal) is way more than any ordinary diary could ever be. Mine is a sentient entity. It has the ability to think for itself and give me opinions as varied in content, as in construct.

I have no excuse for my non-updation and in that light, I don't ask a pardon for the same. Instead, let me fill you in on the things that have been keeping me away from posting to my journal like the usual run-of-the-mill maniac.

For starters, I'm now considered employed (but then, most of you who have kept in touch in other ways already knew that, din'cha.). I'm working in a company in the role of an HR Automation guy. (note that I specifically avoid naming the firm, and also my designation. That's because I prefer to leave enough room for your minds to roam without finger-pointing. Of course, there's another big fat reason, but you don't need to be told what that is, do you? lol!)

So.... Coming back to my life. I've been playing the role of a very stressed out homosapean. (All the single girls out there need not lose hope, I'm apparently not the only guy on the planet!) I don't need to explain myself, Those who need to know, already know what I mean. And I can tell you they're not very happy that they know me so well. :)

I get a few hours to my self every day which I utilize well in slumber. A couple of hours more are spent travelling between work and home and vice versa. What do I do in those two odd hours when I'm awake and not sleeping? I read. My latest reading craze has been Terry GoodKind's 'Sword of Truth' saga.

The series are here listed in order

Prequel : Debt of Bones
* Book 1 : Wizard's First Rule
* Book 2 : Stone of Tears
* Book 3 : Blood of the Fold
* Book 4 : Temple of the Winds
* Book 5 : Soul of the Fire

Book 6 : Faith of the Fallen
Book 7 : The Pillars of Creation
Book 8 : Naked Empire
Book 9 : Chainfire
Book 10 : Phantom

The Pretty Blue ones have been read. The Beautiful Pink ones are in the process of procurement. :)

My first foray into Fantasy was with Tolkein's "The Hobbit" at the age of 9. I made my second thrust at Fantasy Fiction with Isaac Asimov's "Azazel" short stories. More recently, was with LOTR, and now, I'm knee deep in the quicksand spun by Terry Goodkind and his novels.

It's addictive. It really is!

On the digital front, time is used up online, but not as you would expect it. I'm not chatting or reading all the hundreds of mails I get everyday. I'm usually playing A3. It's India's first full-fledged MMORPG with a subscriber-base of over 60,000 individuals. I never believed I'd be addicted to an MMORPG, but hell.... People are people, no matter how alien they might be from inside, from outside, they're still the bland carbon-copies of each other.

Reality check: I'm 25, I'm single, I'm not divorced, I'm a Digital/Music/MMORPG/Book addict. I'm aging faster than a Wooly Mammoth in must!! Hmmm.... When's the next bus to them Pearly Gates yo!?

Some of us take time off from work to live a life. Some of us take time out of life to work. Some of us take work out of life to time. While still others take life out of time to work and a pitiful few take the time of their life to work.

What sense in reason might a blind mind find in a jumble
of seemingly incoherent words strung on a string?
Just madness and confusion reeketh into the beyond
where pain and darkness bow to deaths hounds.

When winds of chill and sorrowful feelings abound,
and joy sucketh itself into oblivion,
There time shall lose its eternal meaning,
and mindless prey, the mask shall be a deliverin'!

Chalo. More updates later, I've got a hunch I'm gonna be looking like an empty stuffed chicken by the end of the day.


Warning.: People from my office (I am told) check my journal from time to time. This is public knowledge henceforth. You are all still free to voice your opinions and stuff on my journal, as long as you do not mention the name of the company that I work for. :o) -- Kaydeeyoh!

Doesn't single mean 'not-married' and 'not-divorced'; cause single by way of divorce would mean you are a divorcee (and not single) and single cause of the death of your spouse would make you a widower (and not..eh.. single)?

//Take work out of life, all that's left is lifeless time!//

So was what went a hiatus from life
or what is now a hiatus from work?!
Either way.. I like stuffed chicken(not empty)! ;)

Oh! Shit! I'm the first commenter. *suddenly feels conscious*
Why the hell are the comments not screened?!?! X-(

Yup! Shit!! lol!!!!

Okai. I never posted a warning, I should have. I never meant to have the comments screened initially, but now, I'm having second thoughts. lol!

Let's see how things go.... I just might start screening comments and security-webbing my posts too. Who knows....? :o)

Yeppers!! 'Single' means just that. But then, I always leave enough room for commentors to extrapolate their own meaning from my words. As some one quite aptly said: 'Always have an escape route'. :)

However, I rarely ever need to have one. People always mistake my words and I have a ball of a time rolling my mind in amusement.

I know you like stuffed chicken. That's perhaps one of the reasons you're still a friend. lol! j/k! Besides, that was just a random bit of blabber. I rarely blabber for no reason, but that, there, was a rare moment in history. lol!

I'll find a life, I'll get a girl and I'll have fun, but wierdly, this does'nt seem to be a time when I can accommodate something like that in my life just yet.... Soon, but not yet..

I dont know if anyone else saw the underlined hilarity in this post, but it was nice to read such a post early in the morning and laugh...

I doubt if most people saw it that way. :) The problem with the new world is that a lot of people won't see the underlines unless they are specifically capitalized, boldified, italicized, etc., for emphasis. :o)

I'm glad you liked it. It's a pity you're among the precious few still standing after it all. lol!

i know a lot of people who are secretive about the company they work for and their post in it. I wonder how it helps them.
A lady whom i know through LJ once told me i'll learn the reasons once i start working myself.
curiosity kills me.

They're not secretive about the company they work for. It's just that they are not ready to go out of their way to bring down the wrath of the company that they work for, just because some truths are considered disinformation to the public masses by the company. :)

Usually, companies are willing to spend a lot more in court than the defendant would whilst standing alone. Truth is not what triumphs in such a case, it's the financial backing that does. :o)

Ah ha!! The cat lives on....

Good to see you make time for this post!

And whats with the 'I'm single, I'm not divorced' and 'I'm gonna be looking like an empty stuffed chicken' kinda phrases!

Yes, I do get time, but usually, it's in such short patches, that I don't get the time to type out a post. It's frustrating, really!!

Ah, the phrases are intended to poke a little humor at the world I live in. It's an ironic means of provoking the masses by making the irony point at myself. :o)

Re: :)
Hey, it's nice seeing you here after so long. Of course, part of the fault is of my own creation and my lack of posts. But then, we seldom point the finger at ourselves right? :o)

Nice to see you're doing good and stuff. I'm still as quacky as always. :-D

I'll post as often as work lets me. It's something I really really wanna stick by.

Studies? Finance and stuff or something else?

Re: :)
Someone rightly said....
"Everybody makes mistakes..Learn to see ur own & turn a blind eye to others" ;)

I'm just abt fine but totally in an (un)sociable mood..

Finance..Technically: Professional Diploma in Financial Services Management

Re: :)
Yes, some did rightly say that. :)

But I have trained to see mistakes in others, if only to learn from their mistakes. :o)

Unsociability (is that a word?) is not a good thing. You ought to repair that and swing back into the circuit. :) It's a mistake I've made since I was a kid, and still continue to make. Some mistakes are hard to fix.

FSM? Kewl!! Hope all goes well and you scale new heights and stuff. Life is short. Too short. Leave out some time to have fun. :-D
