Not alone...




Post haah…I found that im not alone in the world of laziness..
Mriga..arzoo..and lot others commented and also personally confessed their lazy selves to me…Astounded ,I decided to do a google on this and found out this….

Which sayz

‘This is a ring for the lazy, the idle, the slothful, those who waste time, those who procrastinate, those who slack off, those who would rather be napping, those who take the elevator, and those who prefer their meals to be "instant". Instead of criticizing these lazy traits, this ring celebrates them in all their slothful glory.’

Its pretty well organized considering the fact that they got a complete members list and detailed application form for becoming the ‘sloth of the month”

I also found a couple of firms with ‘Lazy “ prefixed to their names and a lot of book and musik stores….Must have got inspired from the Albert Einestein quote saying “
Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking"

And then I hit upon
this guy’s publicity for his book which he says will

‘teach you how to use your laziness constructively to find smart solutions as opposed to working long and hard.’

Fred Gratzon not only conceived and wrote down the above stuff but is also an avid practioner of the “ Lazy way to Success”.the site also sports some press endorsements and testimonials.Must have worked real hard for this..

While surfin I also found:

1.lazy blogs
2.life histories of lazy people
3.lists of famous lazy people(hope to get in it some day..)
4.scientific articles exploring laziness..


and whole host of other ‘lazy ‘ stuff…

and not to forget the lazy quotes page where I found

Progress is made by lazy men looking for easier ways to do things"

Say whatever…mankind is really the most evolved thing in the universe…

haaaah..



I’m suffering from bloggers block….
And it feels real bad when you feel like writing and you can’t..

But its not a creative dilemma that im suffering from…just lazy…

Pure
unadulterated laziness..

For the past one week I was on leave from the world…closed in the confines of my room
Battling out the syllabi for an exam..

I wanted the exam to get over very badly…I prayed. I made plans..i though of topics to write on…
Things to do…movies to watch....places to go…

And now....i just can do anything…I have clothes to wash, turn to clean the room, deadlines at office..
I haven’t shaved, pressed my clothes or polished my shoes in the past two weeks…

I feel like im dropping into total chaos..

Flipside…

I like waking up late on the cold December mornings..
Taking a puff and sip coffe and read the paper..
Browse and read at the office…
Eat heavy and sleep early..

And life ‘s easy when you can.. .


Borrow your friend’s neatly ironed shirts..
Outsource your work to some new joinee who has sky-high career aspirations….
Get anything on home delivery..

Fido dido save me…

YO........!!




Yesterday was another great day at myproject ,mycompany when i came to realize and comprehend the full meaning of ' hard work pays'...As most of you might be knowing(in case u did not know...u know now..),we at myclient had a party at Le Meridian yesterday...We were invited through repeated mails,announcements,numerous instant messages's and the client team when they came to meet is..I was very happy at the prospect of one more oppurtunity of 'boozing...eating...n njoyin...'Of course...at some one else's expense..And Jackson's(no..not MIKE...but my colleague) performance was there too...so it became a much anticipated evening......when ..'ip-instant message' struck...when barely 30 mins was left for the buses to leave for the party...we got a multicast...
---------------------------------------------------
Message for Very new joinees: Regarding Party in the evening,:
Myclient is inviting employees, according to the Myclient-Employee list.
Earlier message from '##### " and me were due to communication gap.
So who ever joined on or after 01-Aug-2005 will not come for the party as you joined recently and your names are not in the Myclient-Employee list.
Sorry for the inconvenience
Regards,your loving team lead

----------------------------------------------------
message from:Team LeadREAD AUG 1 AS AUG 28
INCONVENIENCE REGRETTED

'--------------------
notice:

--------------------
wow...!!!
but the next notice was just near.
.-------------------
MyCompany DINNER AT 1ST FLOOR MAJESTIC
-turn Right and take stairs
-------------------
DEJECTED ...we sat through the meeting..but we managed to grab seats near the parlour itself.......but to be let down.....only beer was served....total dejection...low morale.....why does this world exist after all....??thoughts of various contours tunneled through my mind....why ?...why?...why?the mails,the ips's...arguments..requsets...all in vain....after all those hours of sleeping on my workstation...reading newspapers..checkin mails and.roaming around...the evening i waited for was just a formal party to congratulate people whom i did not even know...save a few exceptionally popular people like " NAIR SANTHANU SASIDHARAN'....(i know him..because he is my room mate..)names were being announced....applause...hurrahs...thronging the air...beer engil beer ....i reconciled to my fate...when suddenly..." KANNAN UDAYARAJAN'.

YES!!!!i was also a winner...a person who did it...winner of EXCELLENCE AWARD...a person who 'EMPOWERED MY DOMAIN..............it was ecstastic...motivation given on paper to all...
All those hours of sleeping, mailing...pondering....it was not in vain...I coudn't believe that sleeping over tons of documentation can eventually transform the lives ofmillion people across the world.I had empowered healthcare....The night seemed so bright...the moroccan dance too petty to bother my great thoughts about healthcare..beer gushed through my veins.....life afterall was not so bad...Later i came to know that Arun ,Bijiyos,jackson..minu..santhanu..shikha ..and a 100 others had all empowered healthcare alongwith me..in the alphabetical order ofcourse...
