Want to write ...

But cannot.. or won't .. cause the hand is acting up(set) again...

(my bday falls in June, and anyone who wants to send an advance bday gift of a speech to text converter can pls email the id provided - i shall send you my work address. Thanks!)


Despite all the hand issues, this was by far my most proactive week in the last few months. I've arranged to sked an appointment with a doc in India for a second opinion on the hand when i visit soon, and my effort has been duly applauded by those who know me, since it involves foresight and planning, the likes of which seemed to have abandoned me of late. I've initiated uncomfortable, yet essential conversations with my mother. I've taken charge of some things at work that I've wanted to for a while. And more.

I feel light, if nothing else. And clearer. No seriously, there's some things that need to be done, regardless of the outcome simply cause they offer so much clarity. Consequently, after a long time, I feel respect for myself.

The hand's not feeling too great though. And that tyrant, Penguin, she checks this space, and she'll kick my sorry ass tomorrow if I don't stop typing NOW. So bye!

Not at all encouraging when the first thing you read on a potentially sad day is that you are a tyrant. Sigg. And so my life moves on.
Have a nice day - at least you should. Though I'd really prefer if I did.

ok what have I missed here? what happened to your hand??

r u feeling alright?

Penguin said...

After you refused to acknowledge my amazing gift of speech-to-text software URL, I am coming up with better idea. You can dictate, I can type. Enna? Wokay-aa?
Yes, I know you love me.
PS - But it never hurts to say it again ;-)
Looouuu.

Penguin: Woman, I love you for being the tyrant that you are. Don't be getting me wrong (of all ppl!) pls .. I've thought of the dictation idea and it shall happen :)

Shirley: Thanks! :)

Shoonyata: Saw ur mail. Awesome of you! Thanks .. will get in touch if needed...

Chandni: Alas it's a long story .. earlier posts have.. but too long to narrate again .. another time ..

Penguin said...

Chandni - Short form of story is that woman types and types and types till hand wants to basically die. So basically hand now saying "Sorry, but cannot" but our lovely sister here is saying "I want! I want!". Before you start getting ideas about what exactly she wants, let me clarify that she only wants to type and cut vegetables and other mundane things like that :-)
PS - No, I'm not jobless to be doing this. In fact, I've worked very hard today. So.
