Exit '07 - carpe diem quam minimum credula postero !
Allo Allo!


No? Er...well, thou ought to be! :P

I've been meaning to write forever - however something or the other kept getting in the way - more often than not, my own preoccupation with my new job!! Wanted to write and tell all of you (by now a moot point almost!) that I am now a Team Manager in the Treasury department - sub division Indian Rate Reporting Unit. Both FX and MM teams report into me - a rather bright bunch! Still haven't gotten around to really _learning_ all that they do (considering I wasn't given _any_ training!) however from my limited exposure I know that we are responsible for the foreign exchange rates, forwards rates, fixings, call / repo rates, T-bills rates, not to forget the FIMMDA co-branded fixings amongst other things! :)

I work Indian market hours - or at least that's all I'm supposed to be doing! ;) leave home usually around 7.30 (which means my day begins around 6 / 6.30) so that I'm at work at 8.30 - the drive from Jay Nagar to Airport Road is _NOT_ fun on a daily basis. Much less in peak BANGALORE traffic! Am supposed to leave around 6..which would see my at home by 7. Though that's never happened - the first time I reached home at 8.30 mum was like "everything alright? Are you ok?!" :D Never the less - I love my job, my company and for the most part - my manager! There is sooo much I can learn from him!

In other news T.B medication has been withdrawn. I cannot put into words what that means to me. First time after 2 years - living like a _normal_ person. Not having to worry if I've brought along my "before dinner" pills incase I want to stop for an impromptu dinner with friends. Ability to stay over at a friend's place without having to lug a medical shop! (and just a few months ago the 'friend' would _have_ to be the kinds who could give huge injections without batting an eyelid - why? Cause I needed to get 'shot' every alternate day!) Man, freedom feels sooo good!

The best thing? Being able to _breath_ without it being painful - that's the best bit!

That and my brand new job!! :D

This New Year I seem to be... well at a "loose end" trying to figure out what to do. Am not a big fan of crowed-smoke-filled-body's-swaying-kinda rooms... then again spending the night sitting alone at home and twiddling my thumbs isn't the best way to bring the new year in! (the silly chumps who insisted I be in B'lore on N.Ys were unable to get time off from work!). Also this N.Y I find myself wishing... wishing ? I'm not sure thats the right word... I'd just like to meet 'someone'... someone who'd feel the below bout me :D

[I'm 'borrowing' this from someone's blog (not a friend... am not even sure he can be called an acquaintance! barely knew the chap - rather briefly at that]

I want to respect you first, and love you second. I want to talk with you about everything. I want you to tell me when I go wrong. I want to look forward to seeing you every night. I want to worry when you go out and are late coming back. I want to share your interests and support you in your pursuits. I want you to come home and tell me how your day went. I want to laugh about the silly things that you encountered. I want to help you overcome problems that you face. I want to see your face light up when I say that I love you. I want to feel afraid as to whether I will be able to keep your face lit up like that for the rest of my life. I want to be with you when something happens that makes you shed tears. I want to watch a movie with you and laugh. I want to go through old photo albums and recall those memories with you. I want you to wake me up in the middle of the night and tell me that you love me. I want to talk with a girl in front of you and see you get jealous. I want to see you talk with a guy and feel like kicking his ass. I want to get scolded when I do something stupid and insensitive. I want to have fights with you. I want to make up each of those fights. I want to keep interrupting you when you are doing something and get scolded at for it. I want to be able to surprise you and make your eyes sparkle. I want to feel an ache in my heart when you are not with me. I want to hold hands with you and take a walk in the evening. I want to have breakfast with you every morning before we both go out and face the day. I want us to live a life that will help someone less fortunate than us. I want you to hold my hand all through. I want to be alone, think of you, and smile. I want to wake up next to you, and watch you sleep.

Not for me the traditional arranged marriage or "marriage of convenience"... I want.. nay _need_ that X factor.. the passion... the madness.. the top of world feeling.... along with the down in the dumps... crabby, grizzly bear feeling... the roller coaster only _True LOVE_ brings with it.

Ah well, on another note : if you have the time do read this - really good stuff!

Hope all is well with you and yours. Do write in when ever time permits. (And if you know any intelligent, single, interesting men - you know where to point them!) ;)
