'Tis Cold

The temperatures have been going up these past few weeks. On the negative scale that is. Granted that I don't live in the Arctic Circle or in any of those other places that try to mimic those conditions. In terms of temperature conditions, summer makes Madras feel like it is much closer to being on the surface of the sun than anywhere on the earth. Given that sunny situation, the mercury level charting a course towards what is considered as normal and comfortable in the rest of the regular world does equate to arctic conditions for us peeps in Madras. That's why that dramatic introduction about the temperature rising on the negative scale!!

Ok intro over, so let me get to what I wanted to say before I forget it. These cold conditions are playing havoc with my daily schedules and routines. The time I wake up, the time I hit the sack, the time I am awake, the time I pretend to be awake, the duration of my sleep, the number of times I feel like having a snack, the amount of food I want to have during a 'snack' - everything has gone haywire or is currently in the process of going haywire. And I wanted to get all of this down on the notepad before I forget it because my ability to remember what little I usually remember is also going down the haywire route. All because of this cold.

So what was I saying? Ah yes, this cold is affecting me real bad. Because of the cold, all I want to do is to make a wrap out of myself - in a nice, soft woolen blanket - and sleep my way through the cold spell. Unfortunately my boss doesn't seem to think on the same lines and keeps insisting that I need to not only get my butt out of the wrap but also into office everyday. Imagine that!! I always suspected him to be a slave driver and now he's is bent on proving it to me!

This................................................................................................................................................I am sure I have something witty and funny to say here but seem to have forgotten what it was. Blame it on this darn cold, it's making me forget.

Since I don't have anything much to say now that I have forgotten what has to be said, I will just take leave now and go sleep.

i wish it would be colder here...
i remember these winters of my childhood in Germany.
We always had snow for christmas... it was just so wonderful.. Winters and christmas over there is like in a fairytale. And now i am facing this season in California and it seems almost unreal to see christmas trees in the sun.

Sasha - Guess that shows that we all like things to remain the way we are used to them being. :)

Change is the only constant in life and we better just start enjoying the change.
