The story of why I have a bandage on my cheek!!

Ever since 2011 started off on a low-key note, I have been besieged with health troubles. And no! Nothing of the major sort!! Uh-huh! It’s all those minor ailments that have been irritating me! If it’s not a cold, it’s my back! If it’s not that, then some nit-picking thing that can be quite a pain in the wrong place! Even the two kilos that I managed to gain after a lot of trouble and binging vanished into thin air… :-/
No! I am not gloating here how easy it is for me to lose weight… On the contrary!! If you have any tips for gaining the ‘ever-elusive’ weight please do let me know!! I will be grateful to you as long as it works!! :-)
Well, recently, I visited the doctor again! Yes! I am a regular with the doctors around this area... Why do you ask?! But this time it was not one of the ‘regular’ doctors. This time I went to the National Skin Centre! Yes! It’s a big step ahead from the local doctors that I visit! :P
You ask me why I went there!! Well… I had this huge pimple on my face or ‘something-that-resembles-a-pimple’ that was causing quite a bit of mental pain more than the physical one! And by huge I mean HUGE! So after a few times it got compared to an organism growing on my face, and some other things I don’t want to say here; I decided to go to the doc to get it checked out! Actually the crowning point was when I went for this gathering, and a little kid came up to me and asked who bit my face! That was it!
National Skin Centre – here I come!
So there I was, at the doctors waiting to get the organism on my face checked out!  After a lot of prodding and some poking, the doc-lady decided she wanted to incise it!! Right! I am not getting into the gross details of what it was and how gory it was – for me that is! I was a very brave girl!! Ask the nurse! Actually don’t! I will tell you why!
When I saw the needle that she was going to use, I did shiver a little!! And then she said the words I had been dreading – “this will only pain a little”…  All those serial killers and murderers from the countless books I had read flashed through my mind! My fear must have shown on my face and the way I was cringing away from her, she asked me if I could relax a little! Yeah right! When a needle that size is coming at your cheek, the last thing you feel like doing is relaxing! Phew! Anyways, in a bid to be brave, I asked the doctor if there was something I can hold on to! Like a rod or something! And there was none! So I looked at the nurse, a petite young thing, standing beside to help the doctor and asked her if I could hold her hand! Yes! I was being VERY BRAVE!!! :P The nurse not knowing what she was getting into, said of course I could hold her hand!!
Well to cut a long story short.. Remember that episode of F.R.I.E.N.D.S where Ross gets a shot and he squeezes Monica’s hand so hard that it cracks a tiny bit!! Okie.. No!! I did not crack her bone or anything; but she did tell the doc to get it done with FAST! I am sure my bony hand did hurt a lot!
Hmm… suffice to say that the nurse did not wish me a speedy recovery! Or anything! However she did give me a glare! Ah well! :D
Now, I have a bandage on my cheek and I have people asking me, if I got into a fight or I someone punched me!!
Better a fight than the organism growing on my face I guess!! ;-) :P

PS: My life does have a lot of F.R.I.E.N.D.S moments before you wonder!! :P :P

That machine is out to get me!!

My laptop at work has been giving me trouble ever since I got it! Of course its age has to be blamed for it! To me, it is from the ancient ages and I doubt there is an older version than this; but like some of my friends pointed out, apparently there are older versions!! It’s probably trying to prove to me that I can’t push it around and treat it like just another machine given its age; it seems that it has feelings too!! Err..! Hmm! So if it is not the keyboard that’s giving me the problem then it’s the LAN connection; and if it’s not that then it’s something else. Either ways I seem to be spending too much of my time at the IT Service Desk rather than at my desk much to the amusement of my colleagues!!
Currently it’s my Outlook that’s experiencing problems! The system has gotten into its head that I am overloading it with emails and has decided to go ahead and create hundreds of ‘personal folders’ (*pst) for me in Outlook. I am not kidding, at last count there was more than 100. How do I know? Well, the IT guy got bored after a while of deleting the folders and taught me how to do it and asked me to delete a few :-/ Ok! I am kidding! He did not ask me to delete it, but the look on his face said that he might as well have asked me to do it!!! Well, he did sit and delete it for like 40 mins or so! Can’t blame him! It’s a boring thankless job, doing that!
Anyways, apparently the problem occurs whenever I reboot my laptop. And so, every morning without fail, I am at the IT desk, asking for support! To rectify my Outlook! And now I am almost like a member of the team!
Sample this!! After one particularly long session of sitting and deleting the numerous personal folders, I asked the IT guy what I should do if it occurs again.  He looked at me straight in the eye and said “You come find me!” and gave me this sarcastic smile! Well... he did say to go to him every time it occurs! So well, next morning yours truly was promptly at his desk with my stupid machine!
Another tip from my boss – just drop your machine on the floor! And say ‘Oops!’!!
There you go! A brand-new laptop! :P
Well.. It’s all fine for him to say, I am the one who’s dropping the machine! Hmmppff!!
Anyways, that’s the deal now!
I keep cribbing and complaining to all and sundry! I call up my friends asking for tips to resolve this problem and that!
But the way things are going… one of these days I just might ‘accidently’ drop my laptop!
And say “Oops!!”    ;-)

Grahanam - A review!

It has been quite some time since I penned something on this blog, and even longer, since I wrote a movie review. But there is no good time ...
