Kickass mornings

*disclaimer: this is, by any standards, a completely useless piece of information. Go ahead only if you expect nothing and then at the end, can accept it.

Saw this extremely funny ticker on Mtv early in the morning today…it was giving sign-wise prediction of the day for different zodiac …while there were some which said
scorpio – wear your right one first when putting on socks today
pisces – something something…
quite witty was one which said
– you will receive a Hi5 friend request today…. and much to your embarrassment, you would accept it.

true isn’t it – the way Hi5 has been trying to gain traffic / users.
i mean i really got a Hi5 request today – just like everyday. what’s the idea? let me use my imagination – it must be
‘let’s get the networking effect. we need to create awareness first – everyday, everyone….even if we get one user who uploads his address book, we need to make sure all the contacts get registered or at least an e-mail in their inbox with Hi5 somewhere in the subject’

‘how do we do this boss, if we send them requests jlt, they would feel spammed’

‘exactly, this is where we are to be different and without caring for this term – spam, what is it btw?- we NEED to send at least 1 request a day to ALL the e-mail addresses that have ever been seen by our servers…..understood??’

‘yes sir’

‘hope there are no doubts on this now….Spam, eh…’

‘(sighs, sulks, khoon ke aansoo pee jaata hai)’
and thus i know there is someone, somewhere who has registered on Hi5 and he has my e-mail address in his address book……

may be some day i relent to this and instead of deleting the message, i click on the link and end up joining the network and may be I like the whole idea as well — someday, but till then it’s going to be the delete button.

some news

This would be a day easily forgotten but for my log entries here.
Got some news which although I always knew would be coming my / our way, wasn’t really expected to come this soon. Mt called us – ankit, atul, siddharth, asif and me inside the cabin and gave us the news we all had pre-empted anyway. Had some usual issues, went for lunch with ankit to achha kaho, achha khilao – our usual spot on for lunch.
much of the day till now has gone with discussion on the outbreak of the unofficial news – will keep myself posted on the latest on this – am myself not clear on the future happenings – but rocking times – good or bad, coming ahead!

daily log

it’s been long, long since I posted anything – primarily because I thought the post should be useful, relevant, relating, synonyms, synonyms…
but then i thought blog’s just a digital-internet-open diary…
so here’s mynth promise – now that’s a word I’d like to invent – depicting not the first or second or third but ‘n’ th one.
beginning today, if i’m to keep this self-made-promise, I would log entries everyday without fail.

so what’s for today?
how about some breaking news -
heard it yesterday ‘HP to cut 24,600 jobs – worldwide in the next 3 yrs’ !
