It doesn't get any better..

I have been pretty irregular at updating this blog. Not that anybody expected it otherwise. My friends consider me the epitome of laziness, and I expect my tombstone to read something like 'May her soul rest in as much peace as her body did even before it got shifted here', all courtesy these same prejudiced 'friends', sigh! However I have different thoughts. I personally believe that I am not lazy, just kinda.. uhhh... inactive, the sort of people who remain overly busy even while doing nothing. The blogging gets missed because I always have so much to do, especially on weekdays. Lets ignore the fact that I invariably end up not doing most of it, that is always due to some unavoidable circumstances and hardly affects the truth of the previous statement. I regularly read a number of blogs and irregularly post a few. The credit goes to the slow processes which comprise a huge chunk of my daily work in the office. By the time a process completes I am generally manage to finish reading a full length post or write about half a post. And there begins the misfortune of my blog. Had the processes been a little more slow, my blog would have been flooded with posts. The large number of incomplete posts in my blog are because when I start the second process, somebody usually calls me for coffee. And then I come back, start the third process, and get invited for a game of pool. By the time the 4th process starts, it is already time for lunch.. then foosball, snacks, and finally its time for the cab back home. Now surely, I cannot miss the office cab, not at least on the way back and so the poor post keeps dangling somewhere in mid air. This company is killing my blog, and I am seriously looking for a change. There are other trivial reasons also for my low productivity like the complete lack of ideas and interest in writing, not to mention the absolute scarcity of audience. Despite my best efforts, only few (read 2) people on planet earth could be persuaded to read my blog. Actually there are 3 if you include my poor husband, but I'll be honest and not count him in since he reads it for completely different albeit much more powerful reasons than interest in my blog. Coming back to the two readers, though they are kind enough to read it regularly, they invariably drop some not-so-kind comments and that is hardly an encouragement. Still, in the true spirit of a blogger, I continue to shoulder my responsibility towards my dear faithful readers and here is my effort towards providing them with better means to kill time. I just happened to find truly outstanding blog, and it is something that I can vouch for. Humour just cannot get better than this.. Hats off to Rahul!

Wow! So much of excitement between work! But I didn't know you played foosball too...

This company is killing my blog, and I am seriously looking for a change. Now that's a very valid reason! Imagine saying that as the reason to an HR person :)

Also, you forgot to include the link of the gem...

Violet said...

Yes. My office certainly offers a lot of excitement apart from work, and that kinda dilutes the boredom that sprouts from the mundane jobs that I do at work.

The link is there, just click on the last occurence of the word 'blog'. You see, I working on making my blog high tech :D

ashes said...

Yeah, the link is very much there, quite visible now. But I did not find it there the first time I read it. :P.

Violet said...

I know you missed it then.. and that is why I have made it fatter and violet. But in the effort, my whole blog has become too colorful for my liking:( Planning to revert it soon.

Indigo said...

Well, I have not been commenting off late owing to the scarcity of posts, but I too read your blog regularly. Please do a ++ on your count. :)

ashes said...

Now that I have noticed it, please remove the fat and make it non-violet. :) Double violetization makes it look somewhat non-high-tech.

Violet said...

Indigo- Thanks a lot buddy. One shot, and my readership has suddenly increased by 50%. Impressive, aint?

Ashes- Yeah, I realized that after putting the comment :) I was just waiting for you to notice!

Neway, "Not-so-kind" .. u know, in some blogs, some commenters make the otherwise drag blog interesting

My dear Mr. Anonymous, how I missed you! Some how I did not get the notification for this comment, and had started thinking that this post of mine had been deprived of its finest adornment - your encouraging comments. And what with all this anonymity, do you really think I do not know who my secret admirer is :P
