The Day Off

Nothing special, really. I took the day off today (planned since last week, no doubt) to have a day to myself to do whatever I wanted, which basically consisted of attempting to watch a movie during the day, cancel an old Internet account, read and probably other things that I wouldn't be able to do otherwise.

Instead, after spending a bit of the morning reading, I went to sleep at about noon only to be brutally woken up at about 4:30 by a call from a colleague (who was kind enough to apologise for waking me up - how embarrassing!) who needed to know my computer password because one of the trainees wanted to use my PC at work. Although it was a good and long sleep, I was very disoriented for a bit... just goes to prove my theory that I sleep better in the day. At least now I know that if I ever had to work shifts, sleeping would never be a problem ;)

It is now about 10:30 pm, and I was just browsing around and decided to check out my (ahem) horoscope on Yahoo! I can't help laughing at how much of a far cry it is from reality... and here I quote: "You'll be full of energy today, although figuring out how to harness it all might be something of a challenge for you. You have many new people and commitments in your life right now, and all of them will benefit from your huge influx of liveliness (How???). You'll be able to tackle everything you need to do and impress everyone you encounter (Yeah, right). One person in particular is seeing you in a whole new light, which could make your social calendar even busier"

It really should have read "You will spend your day being a bum and wonder what happened because you can't seem to recall much, and someone who works closely with you will find out a deep dark secret. Machines will continue their work regardless if you are there or not and you will discover that arrows shot on the move have 25% more oomph than arrows shot from a stationary position"

  6. Aunty: Sleep on weekdays is seems to be much better than sleep on weekends. Maybe Monday to Friday people are just programmed that way. Monday off sounds good ;)

    Orhan: I am ? (Gives a look of mock horrified surprise)

    I think the personalised horoscope is a small masterpiece. As for seeing me in a new light, I think that's good, you know... kind of shows that I'm not boring despite leading a less than exciting life ;)

  8. Even I sleep better in the day... and from experience, I've learnt to put my mobile on silent. Whoever is very important, will have my residence number as well so I don't worry about it :)

  11. That's quite nice, actually. I was supposed to do that on my day off, but I couldn't decide what to watch, so I cancelled the whole plan!

  12. I like a good mental health day like that, but without the interruption to what sounded like an excellent extended nap.
