Monday, Moanday




Limp, insipid, lame, stale, soggy, callow, soppy, langorous, somnambulist, thesauritically surfeited lazy Monday. Pages and pages of convoluted content. Mind getting fussy and stupid. Time getting susky and sore.

And then, conversation in adjacent cubicle:
Very very senior writer to whittle twittle rookie: I want you to do some groundwork before you begin storyboarding.



Rookie: Yes?

Senior: Take this book. I want you to brush up on colons.

Rookie grimaces: You mean...

Senior smiles: Grammar.

Would have been interesting to see the picture in rookie's head.

The picture? Two large nails, placed in a vertical fashion. Just like a colon.

Moanday sometimes feels worse when it's a holiday for a lot of people (President's day) but it is not something your company observes.
So you still trudge in, bleary eyed and in need for a coffee and not quite ready to hit the ground running. Oh well..
PS: Mukta, I found this food site, lot of focus on food from A.P. Check it out folks if you so please. Good pics of recipes as you cook. It helps a lot if you are trying out something new. -> Recipes from India & the world

Been listening to Tanita Tikaram's "Twist in my Sobriety" again and again and again and again.....
:)

And yea, why do you torture us poor souls by writing about all these heavenly things that get our mouths watering incessantly? We are now beyond being jealous..... almost dying in the craving at the mention of those sinful mouthfuls.... aaaah.. unbearable :(
Mercy !! Mercy !!

and going by this post your Mondays are pretty amusing, madaam.

Limp, insipid, lame, stale, soggy, callow, soppy, langorous, somnambulist, thesauritically surfeited lazy Monday

That rather fits our Mondays :(
Imagine sitting in the lecture at 8:00 am, eyes closed... specs acting as camouflage, shoulders drooping, head dropped down a bit so that the eyes "seem" to be looking at the notebook, mouth left half open.... wouldn't even know if some fellow creature went inside , took a stroll and came out.

That was the description of the entire last three rows in the lecture hall, rows that people really murder and kill for to reach first and occupy :D
