Early Morning Ramblings

0700 hrs CET and I am in the office... had run some queries in the production database last night before leaving, so had to make sure that they were either executed or killed before the CRs started with their work... Its pitch black outside... waking up at 0530 hours is not the ideal start of the day for me....
As I got ready making the minimum amount of noise, so as to not wake my roomie S, I kept thinking of the time I had in mumbai where I was before coming here.. for almost two years I was in one project GEMS

The good and not so good times back in India...Started for office at 0630 hrs in pitch darkness,,, hardly anyone on the roads... the cold morning air and the darkness did as much to lift my spirits as Sourav Gnaguly did to lift the score in this recent ODI games ... sorry bad example...

Lekin I am in a bad mood... generally that is not how I am on Fridays... the sole day when u get to wear jeans to work and forget about not sitting in office with one foot tucked under your rear on the chair (you know wat I mean )... that alone is a reason for me to be cheerful and generally I do maintain a rather cheerful disposition ... but I am just not an early morning guy... especially if I have been in the office till 2200 hrs the last night....

The most wonderful thing about GEMS was that we used to go to office late something like 1500 hrs and work till 2300hrs ... strictly 8 hours of work .. Well sometimes.... and that allowed me the liberty to sleep till 1200 hrs .... (my mom suspects that’s the main reasons why I am not shifting base to Delhi)… No I don’t work in a Call Center … just that the client was in US so we had to stay late to have conf in the evenings

Kishore Kumar n Lata mangeshkar crooning softly "Dil tere bin kahin lagta nahi Waqt guzarta nahi".. thank God and www.MusicIndiaOnline.com guy and www.Desi-Radio.com ... without you office would be so boring...

OK enough of my rambling .... sorry to have subjected you guys to such torture... this I what early mornings (read dark cold windy early mornings) do to me...

So I guess I will go nicotinise n caffinize myself n get back to work with a bit of grumble....

Have a great weekend!!
