Do I write about this or that?

Spent the whole drive to work shedding uncontrollable tears. My eyes are red. I am still waiting for this yawning to stop so my jaws can get their well deserved rest. For something that sends a signal that one is sleepy, this yawn goes on to make you more tired than you were before you even started the yawn series. There should be a legal limit for the number of yawns per day after which you should be able to take sick leave. It doesn’t help when you begin to write something comprehensible and end up thinking about the significance of yawns to human society and how they could be harnessed to provide energy for sleep deprived people.

Needless to say, I am a little tired now. Sleep deprivation usually results from two main activities over the weekend- cracking the D'Agapeyeff code or too much partying. Since I didn’t know who the heck D’Agapeyeff was till today, you are safe betting that I partied all weekend.

There is so much to write about, but time has reduced itself to a bonsai. For starters, I could write about this PhD ordeal coming to an end and how I will have to look for another topic to nag Pi about. Or I could write about the Great Alaskan Odyssey (just a cool name for the vacation we are planning to take this week). Once I am back from this backpacking trip, we pack and leave to Pittsburgh. I can write about how much it’s going to suck to leave and about the house that was never bought. I am dying to talk about the backpacking in Europe and the India trip that ensues in October. On a totally related note- anyone living in Paris or Salzburg ready to host one beautiful girl and her friend? Please send in your statement of intent along with your wife’s endorsement of your character. If I said ‘the friend’ was the author of this blog, I may be refused blatantly. That’s one of the reasons why S is coming with me, to help with the advertising. Am planning on using her to get free rides and museum passes too. My feeling is that her hubby wanted to get rid of her somehow and hence allowed her to go on a trip alone with me.

Or even better, I could write about how…..yawwwwwn!

You say "s" is beautiful. Why would her husband allow her to go with you is beyond me ... aww yawwwwn ... this is so contagious

backpacking in Europe

Yeah right!!!

Perspective Inc. said...

LOL at the post! Nice.

is "s" short for subway (#3)? hmmm!!!

while reading about your tearing up while driving, i went, "omigod, i hope alpha did not rear end a cop in that state of mind, then get away batting more eyelids!" not the getting away part, but the rear-ending part.

- s.b.

p.s.: did zo sick this d'ape code on to you? speaking of whom, i feel oh so let down by him - he never looked at my second attempt at his balance puzzle (though i do not have much hope on that attempt either)!

Ash said...

So much travelling in 1 year ? Lucky girl !

I was told people with jobs have it tough cos they have the money, but lack the time to travel. Guess I was misinformed :)

sunshine said...

LOL!

"There should be a legal limit for the number of yawns per day after which you should be able to take sick leave"

I agree!

sunshine said...

cud spend the sick-leave hiking, rafting, bungee jumping etc...

Rationale said...

Alphu YOU and tired? Naah!

*Remembering time when we all woke u up that afternoon when we got back from Mt Rainier* siiigh....

Have yet to wash out the pants you need for the GAO (Grt Alaskan Ody)

WA said...

alphs back packing? Have you organised someone to carry those backpacks for you?

Me said...

oh comeon wa...alpha is going to stickon to someones back like vethal....:p

pavan kumar said...

Eurotrip? wow! is it the 'pieces of the puzzle' that is taking you places? or the hard-work behind Pi's graduation? :)

Fishy said...

wow!! one week two posts!!! hehehehe but was all this disclosure of travel plans an evil way to warn us of fewer posts over the coming few months?
btw Paris rocks, it almost competes with mumbai for my fav city in the world!!! :)

anumita said...

When you are yawning, open your mouth really wide and try making a loud lingering sound while closing your mouth in slow motion... like "...aaaa...aaaa...aaaaaaaaaaa.." I learnt it from my baby niece. It really adds to the pleasure.

Hardu said...

Alpha come soon. I will join you guys at Paris as well if you plan to go to moulin rouge . What do you say? ;)

Truth Fairy said...

Backpacking in Europe with your girlfriend? Wow! That sounds super cool! :) Alaska trip?? Now I'm just plain jealous!

WA said...

Alpha, all I would say is that there is a small chance that you and your friend might not be talking after this trip. I spent a week in Spain last summer with my friend and thankfully our friendship survived but I ain't going on another holiday with her again.

alpha said...

sb: god forbid, i have stopped going to subway for that reason.

rationale: yeah, you have a few more days left to wash those pants..after which you say good bye to them.

hardu: you pay?

wa: talk about being positive in life...you are number one! that's a better deal than not talking to Pi ever again. Hence i am taking someone i am not in talking terms with.

WA said...

lol. Sorry :D It just so happened that the girls were trying to convince me couple of days ago to go on holiday with them this summer, I managed to make escape. Desperately want to blog about it, but in case they happen to visit my blog I will be in deep trouble. Not worth the risk :) Have a wonderful time though

anantha said...

So Alpha, you are going backpacking across Europe? Hmmm...

Hardu said...

Alpha: I will pay for myself. :) Oh Please say yes. I am sure it will be fun.

alpha said...

hardu: i'm all for it. Have seen the movie, but didn't think much of it. But a caberet show in paris shud be good fun. my plans are in doldrums what with lack of time and all..and s is probably rethinking her choice of trustworthy company. why dont i let u plan for us. have you started cleaning your house yet and done grocery shopping?

anti: it'll take me some time to read that stuff..whatever u say must not be that good.

LOL...now,that's what's called self-promotion prior to a holiday..:)And,LOL at the idea of holidays being given to a person after a set number of yawns.:)

AmitL said...

BTW,Twin that self-promotion comment-ator was me.:)AmitL

alpha said...

fishyyy!!! nooooo! Dont say that..i was trying to ignore Zoheb and didnt want him to feel bad..and hence ending up not replying to many others..all zo's fault.

amitl: try that at your work place twin and let me know what happened.

Hardu said...

I haven't seen the movie but someone mentioned it when I was in swiss and then I thought I have never done anything like this and so should try it out. You can baby sit me. :P HA HA HA :))))

wittsend said...

Congratulations to Pi!! and you ofcourse!! How was the defence? I guess he gives me hope...is duniya may der hai andher nahi...
you take care and have fun...

Fishy said...

ok ok...:) am too excited to stay mad, company paid trip to US coming up next week... yeah!!

Kaushik Gopalan said...

alpha or s.b.,

An important clarification is needed to preserve my limited knowledge of biology.

When you talk about "child bearing hips" you are talking about hips that are used to carry children and not about hips that have children of their own, is that it?

Anonymous said...

kaushik:

i am not talking about hips, child bearing or not - alpha is. come to think of it, based on a booboo i commented on another blog, i am not talking right now - period (my face is stuffed with crow, humble pie and rotten eggs). this is my evil twin speaking.

Aaaraakkum veetule?. Yaardhu irrukela? Illa illaya?
