Its low, red ,topless and American. And its mine.
Damn...! Always wanted to say that.

This '65 model is also optioned to the hilt with whitewalled tyres and beige interiors!

Is it also the closest I will ever get to the real thing...? :(

Found this relic from my childhood while rummaging through a cupboard the other day.
Back then, owning-one-when-I-grow-up seemed like the most logical thing in the world.

Unfortunately, 15 years down the line, things are exactly the same as, except being herded into the school Autorickshaw is replaced by being herded into the company bus... personal transport continues to remain a pipedream....

Million dollar question (actually, a 5,800 rupee question)...

Western Digital My Book or a Seagate Freeagent Desk ?

I have just realised that my current storage capacity (bought 5 and 6 years ago respectively) isnt enough to handle the storage requirements of ...welll.. 5 and 6 years later respectively.

You know its a worrying sign when the GPRS call volume on your phone crosses 45,000+ units in a single month.

Urgent measures needed to be adopted to compensate -

- Quit office breakfast.
- Quit office lunch.
- Quit office food altogether (better start begging colleagues for chai!)
- Wait extra hours in office so that my bus pass can be blackmarketed (I can use the free afterhours cab service).
- Invest in a thermos flask , to be filled with vending machine tea/coffee, and sold to all those guys standing outside the gate smoking.
- Start praying for the remainder (if any) of my variable pay to materialise miraculously.

Door Sign

"Oracle Apps Develpment Team"

Says a the sign posted on a door outside a closed, inaccessible to us section of my floor.
Says volumes about the stuff being develpd there. Infact, this reflects the overall attitude of the company towards dev work in general , as far as I am concerned.

Time to save in my favourites.

Heights of loserish behaviour :
Playing Excel games all day long to pass the time.
On your office laptop.

..on a weekend. :(
