The Title speaks of its self. If you are any of my roomies than you can comment and vouch for the same else read on!!
If you remember my year started without a bang and buzz. As the year evolves i find my self getting more and more busy but i do got a fair share of happiness. Including new job, a nephew and lots of work at office (Yeah i love working).
So there was shopping mostly for booze because i was sad that the year started bad and then it was more booze because it getting better. The extent of drinking can be measured by the fact that i am alone at home at 6 PM IST and I have glass of whisky on the rocks. Now a Question arises have i been turning into a compulsive drinker? I would say bull shit. Drink 2+ liters of water at one go and you will have the same sensation that of the after a few drink. So essentially we all are a compulsive drinker the difference is what we drink!!
So here i am thinking what to do about it and I got another idea. Go shopping!! So in the last 3 months i have shopped for— Hold-Your-Breath just a little over 0.75 Lakh rupees. Ladies you will love me for this :). Most of the shopping were for a change of wardrobe, few necessities including a brand new iPod Touch (16Gb Version), a washing machine and some jsut waste of money like a change of my 5 years old undie.
but the final result is that after seeing those bill i am back to my room drinking some more and thinking what have i done!! So you see shopping didn’t help in my drinking drive :(. Guys! any new ideas?
Ancle, unty, bhaiya aul meli sari gul flend kal mela Happy Birthday To you hai. Aap log jalul se ana aul bahut sale gifts lana. I would have invited you people for my birthday in the way above had I been a kid of of 4years. (the girl friend part was added to show that i am still single. and becoming my GF will be one of the gifts you girls out there can give me) but neither i am a kid nor a 4year old. So its a quick reminder that I celebrate my 26th year of incarnation on “29th may” (again).
I seldom got to celebrate my birthday with friends for the reason all my b. days came during summer vacations. Now i dont get to celebrate my birthday because we dont have a vacation from work. If you guys wanna throw me party my number is listed http://blog.krishnausha.com/about/ or drop me mail or comment i will call you back to know the address of the party. Those who wish to send gift please send them via “online money transfer” to my bank account. (details will be provided on request)
Update 1: It seems the guys at Google are really fast, they have fixed this bug.
This is not about me but one of the best emplyoer of the world. These guys have the policy of giving free services to the world. I am talking about Google. The biggest search engine has got a bug. The title also mentions the same
BugLE = Bug + gooGlE
There is a bug while doing a dictionary search.
step to generate the bug. First goto http://google.com
1. Search for “define:Santosh” (or any term after define:)
2. It shows related phrase and definitions
3. Click on the any related phrase except the first one. (anything other than santosh sivan)
4. instead of displaying the definition of clicked item. the page displays the clicked item appended to first search term

Thursday was one of the bad hair day for me. Nah it was not my hairs. I dont have any of them to have a bad hair day with hairs.
It was something more grave. I had given my cloths to the washer man on Monday to iron them but till Wednesday he wasn’t done. So i had to take out my lone clean trouser. A Scullers Trouser which was bought Sunday and got on Wednesday after alteration. (The details here are worth remembering for future reference 🙂 )
So i donned in a brand new cloths leave for office. Hailed a auto with whom had a discussion (read had to haggle) about the charges. Reached safely to office. and while getting down i heard a faint sound. As i turn around i find a piece of my trouser is left on the auto. As i turn around everyone has a Big-Fat-Grin except Me. Now i had just 2 options
First Go back home and change
Two Stay at office with a extra hole on my back side. That’s what my colleagues called it when I reached office.
The first option was rejected outright. For I dont have anything washed and ironed at home. Second I was already 30 minutes late for office. So it was Out-Shirt (untucked). It was so obivios that half of my office knew what i been through.
It was so obivious that when I was bent down to work on one my colleagues system. My PM comes from behind and says “Santosh don’t bend too much people may take Advantage.”
Now those who read this let me know who should i blame?
The washerman, who was late in ironing my cloths.
The auto guy for not keeping his nails in in control.
The trouser manufactrer (Scullers) for not using strong cloth.
My own compnay who askes every employee to wear formals from monday to thrusday.
If you remember my this post written some where last year when i was in the heaven called Bench. From then till now there were lots of changes on my professional front that includes few projects, some more becnh hour and a emotional job change. Emotional becuase it was one hell of thinking between a compny with a brnad value or a company which is still paying salary. (My last job had resorted to pay cut of upto 100%) Money got the better of me and here i am working for a company who is still paying salary. (That too 100% including variable component.)
I am trying to make sure that this company keeps paying me my salaries and to do so i am working hard. Which has taken a toll towards my blogging and related activities. If there are chances that i have not visited your blogs in years then please bear with me. Lets hope that i come out of this soon and become a active blogger.
