Astroids and Googols
It all happened about a month and a half when my quaint sleepy life as a programmer is rocked by an astroid,
please dont get your "This guy does'nt know how to spell" antennas up because thats what this rant is all about "astroid".
well! it hit me on a quite day when I was working very hardly at work, she was roaming around the galaxy called the internet and somewhere in the solar system she saw a glowing sun called cool_machha, may be that struck her as weird and weirdness leads to curiosity and hence decided to take a look at it, needless to say that sun happens to be my name in the cosmic internet world and then the story started, since astroid has amassed huge knowledge due to her vast experience around the galaxy the sleepy programmer was amazed at the know how that tiny spec in proportion to the universe possessed, she had knowledge of everything , well almost everything but had a lousy spelling but thats all right as long as she could convey what she wanted to say, so we started throwing dust at each other in the form of electronic mails and internet hyperlinx and cosmic ocuurences.
Finally with the help of a transcosmic shipping company called yahoo we finally started talking in real time, this is something I still don't understand, if time is real then why do you need to call it real time ?Isn't it kinda redundant? if Time is not real then are we not existing anymore and that what our watches show is just another grand hoax by the people from timeland ?
Any way thus started the story ..........we talked about everything under the sun the moon and all the moons of other planets and some, turns out this little (not in size just a adjective I am using) astroid has a huge crush for a googol, yes its not google , googol is 1 followed by 100 zeros pretty heavy number eh? but in terms of astroids that nothing because she has seen the universe so a couple or hundred zeros also doesnt matter.
you may say this rant is outrageous how can an astroid have a crush on googol a number? I sure look like I sing a looney tune but hey this is the world of cosmic internet we are talking so anything is possible, just to prove my point I am calling astriod as she and googol as he, and if you look at it astroid is nothing but dust and gases so all this astroid wants to be is googol times its size, not a bad aspiration I should say.
so coming back to the programmer guy that is me what Is my part in her getting googol, well the answer is none, I have no Idea why I even discussed googol here but this rant is written for a reason unknown or that cannot be fathomed by a simple human mind that cannot even control the actions of its own hands that are typing this rant, so I guess all I was doin is killing time in between her trips around her universe and waiting for her return back to solar system every day.
All said and done astroid watching has become on one of my daily chores now, almost everyday we send messages thru the cosmic shipping company and she has been a good pal and all that an internet buddy can be.
Heres to you astro............ you WILL get the googol you love.
This is a snap shot of any working day for me .It exaggerated sometimes to humor but mostly close to reality

A boring look into my working day
This loop is repeated from Monday to Friday
Switch off the cell phone alarm,(coz' I am cheapo I never managed to buy a real alarm clock that scares the sh** out of you and your neighbor's!).
Yawn!Goodmorning America ,Intel here I come for another day in your service.
Pant!Pant! Getting late to work where the %@#$%@$ are my car keys I KNOW I kept them near my computer.....Somewhere within the 100 Ft radius.
OK, Finally found the keys,start the car pull out of the driveway ..........Wait I forgot the ID cant get in at work without it, going back to get it.
At my workplace at last,just 3 minutes late though hope my boss is not in already, will make it on time tomorrow (Resolution#1).
Observation:Why is that my boss is always late when I am early and early when I am late?
Saved by the meeting, its not scheduled to start till 9:30 so lets see what's happening in the world!
Internal,yahoo,hotmail,lycos google news, Slashdot in chronological order. Nothing interesting except sales pitches for debt consolidation and vi@gra.
start meeting either at desk or in conference room
Scenario 1: I have my headset on and frequently uttering phrases Uhhhh haa.....yes...ok to make myself
useful and to let the other guys know that I am still working with them.
After all the salient points are discussed and the work load adressed break!
Scenario 2: I am in the meeting room trying hard to stay awake.They should all have NODOZ's in the conference rooms for poor souls like me who cant help but drift in to the dreamy world at the drop of a hat.(Resolution #2) Not to sleep during the meeting!
No meetings Today so trying hard to get to work and look busy!Put on a pair of headphones and concentrate hard on the monitor.If only
staring could get the work done!
Water cooler Network
Since I dont drink cofee or tea the only beverage that suits me in the break room is the good old dihydrogen oxide or water
for the lesser informed souls.There is no news scoops yet on anything new in the office from the official office grapevine.
Get back to work!Change the source of the staring to the bottom right hand corner of the monitor(The place where you have the time on a
windows desktop).Try to work.
Its lunch time bolt out of the door as soon as the clock hits 12 as you have to beat the lunch rush at Quizno's.
I stand in line for abt 2 minutes, the lady behind the counter recognizes me makes my usual sandwich.
I pay for the sandwich and get out.!
I am home and my roomie greets me with the usual wassup!
I reply "Nothing much Just here for lunch!"
Get in to my room open my sandwich switch on the T.V and eat.
Flip channel to watch Tom and Jerry
Get up and start towards the car....Damn Forgot the keys again...Will have to take off the shoes to get back in to my room.My roomie was a buddhist monk in his last birth hence the no shoes policy in the house.
Back from lunch Now starts the second innings,
Finally I decided its time for me to work as reality hits that the work was due yesterday.Time flies when you do that but obviously the turbulence hits when you are in the middle of your work and your server crashes or something to that effect.There is not single day in a programmers life when he is not plagued by unforseen problems which he thinks he has already forseen,
Some moron in another dept tries to open an email attachment which brings in a worm that crashes the network and thereby delaying your webapplication deployment. Ah sweet are the experiences working with M$ products.Especially Outlook and IE
Mr JoeSixpack is discussing the performance of kings game and the usefulness of weber in the team.
One more hour to go Need to work ...........just one more hour...............errrrrr......may be more
Packing up ready to leave..........wait wait is that my boss?
yes it is .
Tej could you do this "Fill some $%#%#$%# work here " before you leave ?
6:01 pm working
6:02 pm working
7:09 pm Done. Can go home NOw! sneak out before somebody sees u
Home at last , My roomie sitting on the couch watching his big screen T.V says wassup
I reply "Nothing much man Just got back from work"
Go into my room and fall flat on the bed,
The sleep takes you over till you hear voices.......
I think they are voices in my head but as I gain consciousness from my slumber I realize thats indeed two people talking,Must be Tim my roomies friend.
I walk in to the living room
Tim: wassup contejiuos ?
Me: Nothing much man! howz work
Tim: "Somthing about his work"
Tim: What are u guys doing for dinner ? (Since its a bacheoler pad cooking at home is usually ruled out)
Oh no he has raised "THe QUESTION" the question no one dares to answer.
We start picking up alternatives .........alternatives that are cheap but not fast.
8:35 pm Finally after a heated debate as if our life depended on it we pick XYZ .
8:45 pm We are at XYZ and the place is abt to close, we order something,
9:00 pm The cell phone starts ringing its my ex, had to talk to her coz she got hit by a car. If only I was the lucky guy driving the car.Phew! 10 minutes to get rid of her.
eat the food, pay and get out.
Back to my room .......is anything interesting on T.V tonight except getting fired by trump and midgets getting married , or people trying to eat the most disgusting of things to get 100 bucks.
Relax and turn on the T.V.............nothing on turn it off
Phone rings again.......My dad and mom , this is the best moment I look forward to everyday.Talk to 2 minutes and hang up since there is nothing new to talk everyday.
10:00 pm Put on my headphones and listen to an e-book, right now its Dan Browmn's DaVinci Code.
10:15 pm Drift to sleep.............wakeup turn off my headphones and go back to sleep.
