Picnics ..vodkas shooters…and men with sexy eyes!
(or should I change that to men with sex in their eyes!!)

I’ve been thinking for a while that since I don’t have anything particularly nice to talk bout in my life currently I could start recounting the gazillion amazing experiences I have had in the past.. that way affording my readers a glimpse of the ‘fun pramila’ also re living those happier times.. something my darlin’ Maeve suggested too! (they do say great minds think alike!)
Buuuttttttt thanks to the weekend that went by maybe I will just recount my recent past instead of a distant one! ;)
..a bit of general back ground
...in call centers/contact centers the office is divided into TEAMS. And team outings or team parties are encouraged… to build team spirit I guess...
and of the people on ground zero, the operations floor, a team leader enjoys a ..well, lets say a VERY glorified image..
also in every organization there are a few team leaders who are in the limelight time and again – by wining the rewards and recognition that are announced monthly..annddd for other reasons!!
..some facts
I am obese. Not plump. Not fattish. Not overweight. OBESE. As in clinically over weight. To the point of being physically attractive only to a cannibal king, who taking one look at me will throw his hands heavenward in glee saying “wowie!!food for the whole tribe, for an entire week! Maybe two!!”

On onwards with the story..

i met a guy ... or rather i noticed a guy in office!(noticed him noticing me??) yup, my office!!deadly dull Accenture!!!
n the sad part is, i know there is no, as in zippo future.... but... ummm i find his interest in me rather exciting (sexciting!?) ...he poured out his heart to me...a secretive person revealing darkest stories of his life...over the most lingering looks ever!making me wonder every second we spend together why he is lookin at me like I’m the most gaily warped gift under the x’mas tree..of a party he'd give anythin to be part of..
ok, as u can see I am going off on tangents here, maybe someone else should do the talking?

View from a close friend, who has been observing everything happen up close n personal : : I wud say there was an amazin’ simply amazin’ chemistry……which still remains a mystery….b’coz the guy who has stormed into pamz life like this…. is not at all an open book!!!!! i wud like to add that I used to be in his team….’n all I had noticed was qualities that make for a complete team leader…..by the time I realised that he had several other facets….one of them being his magnetic masculinity! I would have loved to discover the complete man in him…n all the facets that go with it….i was moved to a new team…with alas a new TL!!……..i don’t think I’d be wrong if I proclaimed he is one of the sexiest men in office… or actually should I say the SEXIEST man in office. Yes, without a trace of doubt..the sexiest! …and unexpected twist in the tale saw pammy being the recipient of the sizzling hot looks directed from this absolute beef cake… pammy… who didn’t even like him…. In the least! Cause of myriad reasons…some of them being her having heard some really questionable things about him from people at office, me inclusive… I remember telling her that he has sex appeal in his eyes… only to have her retort that “no appeal, I can see only sex in his eyes!” …but finally this seductive male… managed to capture her attention too…n boy was I zapped… any female would have died for the kinda looks he directs at her.. the inviting glances… the come hither looks… the constant attention… the finding of silly excuses to break the ice…u know he didn’t wait for a formal introduction…he grabbed every possible chance of being part of a conversation where pam was involved!till such a point that even she could sense the attention she was getting from the person she never thought about as more than pond scum!!(although the dumb babe required a lil help from yours truly to decipher what those sizzling looks meant)
He is perfect protagonist of any mills and boons story… the puuurrrrrrfffeeeeccttttt bad man, who can make luv to any woman simply by eye contact…his lethal weapon..
Well what was interesting chemistry in office certainly turned out to be spontaneous combustion of radioactive elements, scorching everyone and everything in sight during the office picnic…

If u don’t believe in love at first sight, maybe you ought to take a second look?!maybe our very dear pam needed help to catch another glance…’n there was an ample amount of help comin’ her way ,with me rushin’ at her SOS ..poor damsel in distress...(i'd kill to be in her shoes!!) she had a real hard time awakenin’ to the fact that she ‘d actually get swept off her feet by somebody whom she detested (ok, maybe i’m getting carried away here considerin' she isn't interested, yet!) she really seems to have a major issue with being able to believe a guy wud find her attractive!wonder why?!


Okkkkkkkkkk... I see its time for me to get back the controls, thank you for that rather descriptive, allabeit touch blown out of proportion,
introduction sue, btb, people she has recently begun her blog.. do check her out and some comments!

Well, yea... most of what she said is true, without the frills that is.. its not like he isn’t paying others attention...umm ..er well..actually.. honestly speakin..
ahem...lets just move on to the picnic shall we??

First lemme tell you how one gets to Manori Beach : we left from office at bout 4.30 in office provided cars... and it took us over 2 hours to get to malad st. from where one takes a bus to marve beach...once u get off at the last stop, you catch a 'ferry' (a boat) to the island of Manori, from where you catch a rick or a tonga to the resort you are staying at...

...fresh year... fresh hope???
resolutions? well, na, thats whats expected of everyone on new years...
n considering i haven't got a 36-24-36 figure from last year's resolution nor have i got myself an admit from Harvard/Wharton something (that something being common sense?) tells me making resolutions doesn't help one bit. (come to think of it, i didn't even apply to the univs!!...hmmm, u think that might have something to do with my not getting admits???)


well as everyone here is aware, the above post was most certainly not posted... not even completed on the 2nd...

someone asked me earlier today if i had given up bloggin? have i?
have i given up blogging?

when asked that question i immediately jumped to answer negatively. me? give up blogging? no way no how sirree!!

but the sad state my blog has deterioated into makes me think...
....i post bout once a month... i haven't posted in over a month n i still have only 6, SIX comments!! this from a easy 20 to 50+ on good ones is a major slide - n hey, i am not complaining... i am well aware a lot of you bothered coming by - that nifty counter on the right panel tells me how many hits my blog has... plus a few of you have bothered to write me emails and ask why i am not writing - though that too has seen a saddd decline!
for that again i have only myself to blame! the first couple of times i went silent my inbox was flooded with mails but now my regulars have an apathetic response - regular absence will do that to the most loyal reads!!

i've been having a rather rough patch... i was just bout to say rough 3 / 4 months.. but then thinking back over the last couple of years, can't honestly say they have been swell either..
and i am sick of whinin on my blog.. i dont like writing tear jerkers... so writing about my life wasn't really an option and haven't ever been particularly good at creative writing..
kept "writing" blogs in my head, thinking "Today i will DEFFINATELY write a post" ....however, my poor blog bears testiment to the fact that i obviously never got around to doing it.

Dad's doctors (a bunch of ASS%#$ ) have given us bad news...what was it??? Amn't ready to face it just yet.
last month my mom fell and twisted her ankle... or so we thought... after a week when the swelling did not go down, when she finally agreed to have herself dragged to the doctors we found out her had broken her ankle.. pretty bad.. and it would need to be in a cast.. for ATLEAST four weeks!

my office management, which never really had all their marbles in place, seem to have COMPLETELY lost it.
shift changes EVERY week - which means we can't even plan things 3 miserable days in advance. forget things like outing with friends... but even doctor visits - around which my life seems to revolve - can't be pre planned! n they CHEAT too!! like till last week my offs were wednesday and thursday - right smack in the middle of the week - which friend will one meet then i ask you?!? but ok, i reconciled myself to it (as if i had any choice!) - scheduled ma's cast to come off on thursday... and bang! my offs have been changed to sunday / monday... which again i can reconcile myself too (n kill my self takin ma to the docs on a work day!) BUUUUUUTTTTTTTTTT n here the bummer - but, the work week begins on MONDAY - n shift changes are effective monday plus we were informed only on SUNDAY - when we came in to work! so we - the whole darn team - gets only monday off for THIS week.
how convinient for them. (espcially as a 3rd party call center they get paid by the hour per agent by the client!)
there are times when teams have wound up working upto 8 days without an off - this in an industry where a 5 day week is mandatory.
and the H.R is suprised at the sudden increase in the attrition rates. go figure.

the situation with dad has become worse.. will talk bout it in the next post. or maybe i won't. talking about it means putting it on paper (ok screen). and i am not ready for that. just yet.
maybe never will be.
last year was bad. hope this year doesn't turn out worse.
check out dad here.

ohh, anyone know wether BALI was at all affected by the Tsumanis? Why do i ask??? A _VERY_ dear friend of mine - Mily to me - EMILY to the world was from there ....and she is not replying to my frantic emails.
