Weekend is early this week

Yes, it’s only Thursday and I am already into weekend mode. Why? Because my boss is only leave today and tomorrow!!! πŸ˜€

Ain’t it cool?

Infact we’ve been celebrating since yesterday. As a matter of fact, my weekend started yesterday.

Before y’all rush to conclusions about my boss, she’s actually pretty cool (read: pretty & cool). Doesn’t give us too much shit but, in principle, I think all sales managers are a pain. Plus, we have our weekly sales reviews on Thursdays, where I have to come up with new stories (and dramas and excuses and grammar) each week for not being able to close some deals. And I’ve gotten good at it now. For 5 weeks straight, I was able to give 5 different excuses on 9 deals that I am tracking for this quarter! πŸ˜‰ For the record, I did close one of ’em.

Point is, none of that happens today. I can do my stuff and not worry about what my next alibiΒ  is going to be. That’s priceless.

Another thing made my day. A colleague (and friend and husband of fellow blogger Tara) came to me this morning informing me that he made uppam & chicken stew last night for dinner. He hunted for the recipe on Google. Guess what was on top of the search results?

My blog πŸ™‚

Not sure why coz I have no freaking idea about the recipe. Apparently, there was some mention of uppam stew in some comments. There you go!

I’m telling ya, internet is a very small place.

      you get to watch as much of desperate housewives as you wish…you get dinner ready….so 1 hour of cleaning scattered kitchen is ok i guess…. πŸ˜‰

    • Crafty! welcome back…just don’t go away again!!

      Weekends were fantastic. My latest posts will tell you why! πŸ˜‰

      Sure. Ever close to missing your deadlines – just ask me. I’ll come up with a suitable, absolutely believable alibi. Not just the ‘dog ate my homework’ jig.

      Veggie? Koi nai…lets have veg stew!


  10. Is it appam or uppam ??? Is it the steamed fluffy rice dosa, right ??? Oh! I love it and what a deadly combo – with chicken stew. WOW !!! Now, I want to eat it.

    My hubby too a sales guy. I know abt all those nataks. Anyway, gud for you, you atleast hv a gud looking boss !!!! Imagine those ppl, who hv senior citizens as boss.

    BTW, my daughter told me, sometime back, Mom, when I searched ur name, it took me to ur blog and she was so thrilled abt it. The feeling is really gud !!

    • Yeah, I guess it can be spelled as ‘Appam’ as well. I remember seeing it with a ‘u’ on the menu in different places.

      Oh yes…exactly…those fluffy dosas…yummmm!!!! Out here in Dubai, we do get it but its nowhere close to what is tastes in India…specially in blore.

      Good looking and quite fashionable I must add. One day it is Gucci, then Prada or Chanel or LV…doesn’t end…

      Wow. Cool. Kinda feels that we have our own identity on this small ‘big’ web.
