I’m alive, I’m alive


I’m still alive and well, just in case you were wondering. Yes, you, reader. I’ve noticed the drop in hits. You think you can just not read this blog? Oh yeah? You ain’t seen nothin’ yet! This blog will come knock down your front door, throw your cat in the pool, burn your library and mix up the labels on your carefully arranged dvd collection!

Hmph. Try not reading now, punk.

Anyway. How have you been? I’ve been good, thanks. I know, I know, I haven’t really updated much. But that’s hardly reason enough to not come visit any more, is it? But I digress. I’ve had yet another change in lifestyle recently. I quit work. I now work from home(kinda) and hence, am insanely bored a lot of the time due to not having co-workers to throw stationery at.

I am also missing my daily exercise routine of hanging on to overhead handlebars on buses. It was grueling. So I’ve decided do get a bicycle to ride around when it gets too stuffy at home. Plus I’m almost certain I can beat any of those kids who race down the lane in their shiny new bikes. In related news, I also plan to get myself a motorbike. I’m quite clueless as to what to look for in this regard, though. I’m more lost than a woman in, well, anywhere.

By far the best thing about working from home is that the dress code consists of whatever I’m wearing when I get out of bed. Speaking of clothing, I went to Dili’s recently, at Bambalapitiya. Surprisingly, they had just the type of jeans I was looking for, and it was cheap. I’d follow dili’s if they were on twitter. They also have quite nice salespeople.

Me: *wandering around while waiting around for cousin to get back from the fit-on room*
Attendant: “All of those are newly arrived, sir”
Me: “Heh, I haven’t been here in months so it all looks new to me”
Attendant: “No… Sir… I mean they’re the latest trends, in accordance with the season”
Me: “Ohhhhhh, okay… *awkwardly look away* *mumble* *mumble*”

So, other than people thinking I can tell the difference in styles of clothing more accurately than to within 30 years, I’m still me. Hopefully with more time to read all your posts and things and grace your posts with my valuable comments.

Edit: Dilly’s. I’m stupid.
