Tag Archives: Monday

Heya all!

So I just had a few moments today to just sit back and reflect on so many things happening in my life and here’s my week so far- pretty charmed life, I lead eh?

On Monday, I got offered the role of a CEO of a SME in Ireland- now that’s pretty darn cool, in my opinion! And then I spent the rest of the evening with close friends just chuckling, smiling and having a good time 🙂

Tuesday was a quite day with alot of visits to the toilet and knowing I have a doctor mate who dropped by to check up on me, with a bottle of wine in tow, made me laugh! I mean seriously, doc, I haven’t even in 24 hours and you want to pop open some wine to celebrate? You went with non-bubbly ‘cos of my health- oh how nice of you! Thanks for the laugh doc 🙂 [Incase you are worried, it turned out to be 7up in the wine bottle and he was troubling me but hey, it was amusing]

I went for a tour in the Convention Centre Dublin on Wednesday and wow! What an amazing building- completely carbon neutral, a PPP that seems to be favoured towards the public while still making a profit for the private entity and 8000 capacity on the 5 floors! I am blown away with the way everything was so high-tech and all- maybe in the years to come, it wouldn’t remain so good… but for the moment, I can see a lot of potential to it. My biggest issue is the lack of connected hotel- when I go away for conferences and such, I tend to prefer staying in the same hotel than commuting… I know they are connected to Ritz Carlton in Powerscourt but that’s gonna be not easy!

And today, I was reminded of an old song I used to love- there was an Indipop version of it too but for the life of me, I cannot remember it- so if anyone could tell me where I can get either the French or the Indian version of the song, I would be very grateful- it’s a very soothing tune. I also learnt a random fact that there were over 2 billion videos viewed on YouTube yesterday- that’s some traffic!!!

Some interesting links I enjoyed reading today:

Big hips on women = potential memory loss!

China is STILL trying to control its people’s thoughts!

What a way to start what you’d hope to be a lasting relationship!!

Opening wine by using a shoe- certainly wouldn’t manage that in heels!

Indian Rupee has its own symbol now!

The potential of social media marketing (McKinsey Quarterly report)

Testing your decision making gut (McKinsey Quarterly report)

And when to trust that gut? (McKinsey Quarterly report)

And the BEST smile of the day- TS mailed me a reply to an email I sent him on Tuesday because he had promised to do so. He mailed me at 3 am because that’s when he finished work- now, how cute is that? You gotta adore someone as sweet as that 🙂 *Swooooooooooooooooooooon*

And you know what- we are only half way through the week- how cool is this?! Wahay, I love life!

Almost gave up on blogging


4 days in and my commitment in waning- and since this is more for me than anything else, is it a wonder I am such a commitment-phobe?

What a day it has been- I have had some amusing moments:

#1: Met a mentor for lunch to discuss career options etc- his opening line to me “J, you need to help me get a job”. So much for me getting him to get me a job!

#2: In team meeting to review a document deliverable that was sent out on Sat- a team member halfway through the discussion, raises his hand- very seriously and says “Shouldn’t we all read this document first?!” [I almost lost my temper completely there!!!]

#3: Friend and I treat ourselves to milkshakes (FULL of icecream and chocolates- they were really good- I recommend them!) after a really long client meeting. On the way back to our office, he turns to me and says “I can’t join you for dinner on Sunday- I am on a diet.” Like seriously dude, you are kidding, right?!

#4: We are organising a night out for everyone in the department and I came across a brilliant deal- reply from a classmate “J is Scottish!” Is there a stereotype I am missing?!!

#5: I looked down at my feet after my evening shower, saw a swollen ankle and decided to not do anything about it- am I becoming SO indifferent to my injuries?! This can’t be healthy, right?

#6: I put my iTunes on random shuffle and the first few songs it blares:

  • Sexy Eyes by Whigfield
  • Don’t talk, just kiss by Right said Fred
  • Gold by Prince/ the symbol

(I didn’t even know I had these songs!)

#7: One of my admirers sent me a mail saying “I hate black heads (and I thought he was referring to closed pore type blackheads, anyway goes to show!) but I really fancy you so could you please die your hair?” Errr… dude, I cannot kill my hair- it’s already dead tissue so I presume you mean dye and did you really ask me this as a way of asking me out. As far as opening lines for dates go, it is an original, I’ll give him that!

Basically, this sums up my day better than anything else! So here are the top 3 things I am thankful for in the past week:

  • My ability to laugh when everything seems to be going wrong
  • Feeling totally desired by SO many men (it’s been a while and I have to admit I am enjoying it)
  • Sleep- gosh, I needed it!
