Temporarily out of service

Don't you just love professors? They drop you from the summery heaven of food, fun and laughter into a dank, dingy black hole filled with stagnant water called reality in just 5 mins. Here is how mine achieved that.

10 am meeting Monday August 10th 2009

"Last date for submitting the thesis to the Dean is Nov 6th. So you have to defend by Oct. The committee needs atleast 3 weeks to read your thesis, which means you have to hand in the thesis to us by Oct 2nd week. You need to have all your data by the end of Sept, then you can start on the 1st draft and have everything ready by Oct 1st week. Just email me a list of all the sequences you have done so far, we can start the data analysis next week."

11 am priority check in the train

Skip cooking experiments - no way
Skip reading blogs - no way
Skip knitting/ crochet - hell no!
Skip looking after husband - want to, but can't
Skip doing laundry - would love to, but I've a limited number of undies
Skip thesis defense and get lynched by professor - gulp, no
Skip writing nonsensical posts - don't want to but I HAVE to

People, Masala Vade is closing shop till Nov. I will continue urinating in your blogs but will refrain from doing the same in my place. This will give your injured brains (in case any of you did sustain injuries reading my posts) a chance to recoup.

Till then, as Ina Garten says, "Don't have fun without me".

Ciao!

  3. Nahiiiiiiiiiii *hindi movie ishtyle* think SJ think. Your posts have been the light to many disillusioned souls like me. Remember the Ramaswamy post? It awoke the fishy love in me which I thought I had lost when I had accidentally scooped a fish from the well in our backyard and refused to throw it back!

    Your knitting show off's made many H4 wives docile as they practised sword fighting with the needles and yarn rather than on their husbands.

    Your pancakes made its way to the breakfast tables of husbands who had resigned to a fate of office canteens.

    So think what your blog is doing to us rather than thinking about what an Umreekan 3 more letters to your name can do for you. I say chuck de phatte your prof and hi again to your devastated blogger buddies.

    BTW just realised that you didn't add chatting to your list. So that means you are available there!! Shucks will suffer you there then :)

  4. Oh nooooo! Not even teenie weenie one liners? Thats grossly unfair. Stop knitting or buy some more undies. Whichever is easier. But stop blogging? Thats not even an option. Your readers will hound you.

    Its temporary, you need to give ur brain a break also no? Thank you for giving me permission to urinate in ur blog!
    Sonu,
    ok thanks!
    Varsha,
    My dear its a choice between writing rot in my blog or letting my 2.5 yrs worth of hard work go down the drain. If you notice, my blogging only increased in summer, I was virtually absent in spring. So I am pretty sure I can stay away from Masala Vade.

  10. I am glad you didn't make the other decision you could have. Continued to post here and forgotten our blogs. This way, there's 2-way interaction (and I am NOT saying this cuz I want your hits on my site, ok? So don't blame me of that!! sheesh!)

    ReplyDelete

  19. Dear SJ,

    That is what happens when over-erudite people take up too much on their platter. BTW, blogging is a must-do for me too.

    Anyway, all the best to you in your thesis preparation and writing (that sounds so-o-o impressive and highbrow) and hope your prof gets his/her tit-for-tat soon enough.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh NOOOOOOO thats not fair.....will miss you dear, do come back soon! Wishing you all the very best for your thesis!
