I read somewhere that Google Trends show that searches for Meryl Streep is at an all time high. I can vouch for that looking at the search criteria hitting my blog. Congratulations to one of my favourite stars for getting that Oscar. She even featured on our quiz at work on International Women’s Day!! I’d like to inform that according to my WP Stats, Salma Hayek & Penelope Cruz in Bandidas is another popular search 🙂

I have no idea how I lived without Evernote. Quite a few people recommended it and the procrastination was all about installing the software on my smart phone. Now, everything goes there except the 2 page long to-do list from work. The only reason that hasn’t gone online is I distrust the internet for work stuff being public even if they are generic and not at all confidential. They are more reminders than anything else. I discovered that I can just mail stuff to my Evernote and things have become so easy.

It’s one of those things that is easy at first as long as you don’t clutter up your profile. That’s the good thing about tagging then. I can always go to the tags if I can’t remember the topic. A de-stressing activity of mine at work is to trawl through food blogs. This being the lent season, it’s mostly veggie dishes to keep the palate satisfied. I love it that I can email the link of the blogs I liked to Evernote.

Once I am back home and if I feel creative, I can just go online on my smart phone and browse away, pottering around with the pans and pots 😀

One of my work mates doesn’t fall in the average Indian women’s height range of 5′ 1″ to 5′ 4″. She stands out unusually at 5′ 8″ especially when accompanied by us (we’re about 5′ 4″).

One guy on the floor started noticing her as he is quite tall himself at 6′ (again the average height of an Indian male is quite low). He got into a habit of looking out for her in the mornings or during lunch breaks as he sat in front of his computer. He thought he fancied her.

He started searching for her in Facebook. He went through the friends lists… his friends (more…)

There’s been a lot happening in the last six months – but no will or time to post. I’ve been busy reading. I’ve read a bit in the last six months. My shelf in Shelfari is evidence.

Authors I acquainted myself with include Sara Douglas, Suzanne (more…)

It’s taken some time settling down in Melbourne. Every day is unpredictable. I expected the weather to be really cold but not wet like London. The first few days I kept telling myself that at least it’s not freezing.

When one’s office is supposed to be warmer inside but everyone is wrapped up and working away, what does that say. I have a beautiful view from my seat at work. The muddy Yarra River flows by, (more…)
