Rain, rain everywhere

Couldnt believe my ears when I heard just how much rain Mumbai received in the last couple of days - and there's more such weather forecast! When it rains, it certainly pours... not always a good thing, to state the obvious. Wish a bit more rain would fall in Chennai, and a bit less in Mumbai - although I hear that temperatures have dropped somewhat in Singara Chennai, thanks to the occasional precipitation (got tired of saying "rain").

The sky juice (still tired of saying "rain") has been coming down heavily here in Shrewsbury too - really annoying considering that I have a brand new bike (complete with detachable wire basket - neat!) and have been cycling to the office the last 2-3 days. It only takes 10 minutes and is so convenient... and my bicycle is gorgeous - sleek, light and with the skinniest tires I've ever seen! It's even got suspension for the seat - and boy, it's really nice to have the suspension keep the worst of the road bumps and uneven bits from being passed on to my sit-down area.

Now if only it had some kind of contraption to keep the rain off me.

New job...

Hokay folks... one of the reasons why I havent had any new posts in for a while is that I'm now a full-time working stiff again. Getting up at 7.30a.m (ugh), working from 8.45a.m-5p.m (ugh ugh) and that too five days a week (uggghing away here like a Neanderthal making a speech at a prehistoric Rotary Club meet).

I was sort of thinking of working part-time all the time (so to speak) but my innate genius and sparkling intelligence simply couldnt be suppressed and because I so impressed the partners of a property/real estate agency, employment was thrust upon me. SUCKERS!!!! They do not know what they've let themselves in for... mwahahahahahaha...

The other reason for the silence? No inspiration, mon! *sigh*

Gonna probe, are they?

According to this BBC news item, a wildlife smuggler is to be questioned. The headline says "India to probe wildlife poacher" - well, I can only hope that a very sharp stick will be utilised for the probing. And the same treatment for all the murderous, trigger-happy Khans too - Mansur Ali, Saif Ali and Salman!
