Its all happening

May 31, 2009

Things are happening at rapid fast friends. Though if I sit and think, they may look like ages ago but I can’t realize it in the flow as it unfolds like a fast paced movie. For the past one and half years, I am still with my first project and I am content. It’s a team made up with great individuals (don’t glare at me and ask ‘how can you yourself add to the list?’. Me: ‘As none of my colleagues were saying it, I have to say it by myself.. he he he).  Two of my team mates left our team this month and parting is always a painful thing. Its really hard to see the cubicles without them as they are with us for nearly or more than a year and we have shared a lot of good times together (If you are asking, when you are going to leave that project, my answer is ‘I will be with it, till it is with my company or I am with the company LOL 😆 ). So our 10 member team is decreasing in its size and also there are also lots of hiccups in the team. Its not the same team which enjoyed each others success a 6 months ago. Hope this won’t continue and we will be back to our old enthusiastic days.

And the dog which came as a puppy in my apartment has grown into a little dog now and started to frighten me. Even though I love animals, I have hell lot of fear for them. When I went to apartment last Tuesday I am standing infront him and praying, “Please allow me to go to my room”. After 5 minutes, he took pity on me and allowed me to go to my room. All the biscuits I have given to him has went waste LOL :lol:. Don’t know how I am going to manage in the coming days as my shift makes me to return to my room after 10 only and the major worry is, he is growing day by day.

Barcelona has won the Champions league and I wanted that. More than that, they deserved that victory.  First 10 minutes were dominated by Man U but after that its barca Show with Messi, Iniesta, Xavi, Henry, Puyol and Eto’o dominating with ball under their feet.I am not a fan of club football also I am not a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo. So I deseparately needed Man U to lose the match. And this is the first football match I have seen after 3 long years. Last one I have seen was world cup football final match between Italy vs. France(Actually I have seen most of the 2006 world cup matches). Personally I like Messi and Argetina very much, and its a joy watch him scoring goals. And he scored a goal by a wonderful header. I am expecting the World cup football and I am sure Maradona will once again take Argentina to glory with Messi doing what Maradona done in 1986.

In blogging, I am really surprised that wordpress made some great changes which makes it more user friendly. Actually at the starting it is really difficult to add or remove a widget. Now its just like blogger, we can move the widgets up and down and place it where we like. Amazing. Hats off to wordpress team. I am really loving this. Even after this simplification I didn’t done any drastic changes in my sidebar, an example for my laziness.. LOL..

And this is my ‘CENTURY’ post, applause please 🙂 . Ah… removing my specs and kissing my monitor and extending my arms up (Typical cricket fan, he he he ). It maybe anywhere, 100 is always a magical and important number and I am happy that I am able to touch it. Now I am joining the elite list of bloggers who posted 100 posts or more.. LOL.. Thank you all for your constant encouragement as this blog is not only about my posts but also your insightful comments. Thanks again 🙂 At this wonderful moment, my joy is doubled as I received some awards too from Kartz, Arpit and IHM. And as a coincidence both Arpit and IHM has awarded me as a versatile blogger.

IHM has said that:

Kanagu is a new friend and I love the diverse topics he covers from travel to social issues to current events…

thanks for those kind words IHM 🙂kanagu

Arpit recently celebrated his blog birthday and awarded me with versatile blogger award and said that:

This award is meant to appreciate the versatility of the bloggers who have the capability to divulge into different areas and yet emerge victorious . Be it sports, politics, entertainment they have always emerged with flying colors by impressing us with their opinions and posts. Thanks Arpit 🙂

Kartz has awarded me with Coconut award:

Thanks Kartz 🙂

I have to create a separate page for the awards but being a lazy homo sapien I am.. not doing it. For the worse, I thought of doing it this weekend but my mouse is not working. I dono whats happening, but their is some mismatch between me and mouse. In 8 months I have got 3 mouses and nothing is working properly now 😦 so managing with keyboard. Really, really tough. But my friends came to help me on how to use keyboard as Mouse and also some basic functions. Without them this post wouldn’t be possible. Thanks to Guna, Xavier and Balaji. Even I have formatted my system last night to make my mouse work… but its dead. While formating we 3 (me, Balaji and Guna were talking until the formatting completes, from 1 AM to 2 AM). LOL.. 😆 its a blessing in disguise.. after a long time we conferenced and spoke like that.

PS: At last ‘Harry Potter’ bug has bitten me too… Bought the first 2 parts of that book. Hope I will enjoy as much as many fans of him 😀

    Try to get some black magic done over the dog … that looks like the only way around … lol

    @Champ. league … I really prayed for Man U to win … I am big fan of Ronaldo n Rooney … I felt miserable for the next two days after the defending champs lost to Barca … 😦

    But something that has happened off late has really cheered me up … Rafae losing at Rolland Garros … Fedex has gone a golden opportunity now .. 😀

    And congrats for those awards 😉

    • June 6, 2009 3:32 am

      LOL…. anyway it never bitten me.. 🙂

      and I wanted Barca to win as I am a huge fan of Messi 🙂
      and again I am a big fan of Nadal than Fedrer… and even bigger fan of Sampras so I don’t want his record to be broken 🙂
      Hope Soderling wins the final 🙂

      and thanks dude 🙂
