Its been a very long time. I have been remiss, busy, in a I don't care about anything anymore blah blah blah mode for a while. Life has taken some crazy swings and methinks trying to get back to doing whatever it was before the shit hit the fan might help to at least slow the slide into purgatory.
Work has been exceptional in a way but a pain in a wrong place at the same time. I mean, my team lead went on vacation for a MONTH! So I was looking forward to a relaxed month to deal with my deliverables and mind my own business and generally have a nice time...NOT! My manager decides to make me the contact person for the leads deliverables and my inbox is always beeping. Hell, I can't go pick up a print out and come back without "You've got mail" on my screen. Basically, workload has increased about 10 fold.
Went and saw a few movies recently. Superman (CGI was cool, story and Supermans acting sucked), Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Mans Chest (so so movie - they did to this franchise what they did to the matrix trilogy: broke apart one story to make parts II and III), Cars (excellent movie, highly recommend) and some mixed up rentals that a sigh+shrug pretty much sums up.
Interestingly, this whole flap going on the middle east and all has got me further annoyed with the foreign policies of the 'developed' nations. Oooh they raided the border, they kidnapped soldiers, they fired rockets. SO? That shit happens on a daily basis in the North/NorthEast and the only people crying are the ones affected - where the hell is the sympathy for them? Some newspaper the other day had quoted some poombah as having said "Israel has the right to do whatever is necessary to protect their national security"... the implication there being it only applies if you are developed and if you are a struggling devlopING country you do what the money lenders want you to do. Bastards.
The outgoing US ambassador to Sri Lanka had said that "the government should ensure that the security forces do not engage in attacks/operations that have not been authorized by the government" (or something to that effect). Now that opens up a whole new can of worms... especially for the US.
When he said that does he mean that all the atrocities at Guantanamo, The rape/killings in Haditha (Iraq), Abu Ghraib (Iraq) was all AUTHORIZED? Goodness, who would've thought it. But no, they could not have been, so he must be HYPOCRITICAL no?
(If you can see, I am trying to channel some stress and unfocused anger into something actual and happening that will continue to happen regardless of my rantings)
Right now, the weekend has been like this. Full workday on Friday, starting at 7:30 on friday a 4 and 1/2 hour drive, drank till 4:30AM, woke up at 8:45AM, sat through one stupid 4 hour lecture, waiting for the second stupid four hour lecture, THEN maybe get a little sleep before going out in the night. Hopefully. Then another 4-5 hour drive back tomorrow! Work on Monday. Oh Joy.
