Loads to do before I sleep...

Was too sleepy at work so attempted poetry again... came up with a poem telling sleep to leave me alone.

Sleep not now, don't be so dense
When you know T-Rex is scaling the fence
How can you be so ruthless
So as to overtake my senses
You come here disguising work as a lullaby
But you still can't make time fly
Go now, vanish... let me be
I have loads to do before I sleep
Loads to do before I sleep.

PS: T-Rex is the boss.

who is T Rex and why are u fenced at work !
T Rex is the boss, and its a poem. I can't write T-rex just entered the building and so I have to work... that wouldn't be a poem, it would just be a... sentence. Poems have to rhyme you see and exaggerate.

The Danny effect and the Cooper effect

With all the free time I have now (thanks to Cooper) I thought of writing something here.  This is Cooper, a friend's dog, and whenever I go home to Nagercoil, we generally hang out together, talking and taking Cooper for long walks in the colony. This time was no different, we were on our walk when this stray little street dog started barking and I was holding cooper's leash... my hand in that loop when Cooper suddenly became way excited than usual and took off after the stray like Flash on steroids. He dragged me along and I couldn't keep up; I stumbled, fell on the bad road and bruised myself.  And since I had nothing better to do, I made a collage of the wounds to send to my sister... who found it hilarious that I fell. So anyway, went to the doc, got my tetanus shot and now I'm just taking it easy for the next few days. And one person has been constantly on my mind since this incident, Danny.

I met Danny about 12 years ago in Santhi Nilayam, the special school I …

December 2016 and January 2017

The last few months of 2016 were crazy in so many ways. First there was the money issue (when the higher denomination notes lost their value overnight) which created a mess of economic proportions. The insane queues at banks and ATM's and all the scrambling that was happening to make sense of it all, made November quite memorable.  Around the same time, Trump came out victorious which I thought was pretty hilarious... a sort of validation that people are the same everywhere, based on who we elected here.  Anyway, after the chaos of November, December came with her own brand of drama. I heard of Cyclone Nada, but I was busy in Nagercoil then enjoying a birthday party...Even that was fun, surprising the birthday girl who did not know that I was at the airport with dad. She walks up and down and I'm hiding behind the newspaper pretending to read it, then I see Manoj by her side, and they finally come out and she is hugging my dad and after that I walk up behind her and tap her on t…
