seeking the light (part 3)

I got a reply from ICICI … imagine the warm fuzzy feeling I experienced to know that they “regret the inconvenience” caused to me! The email I sent got submitted twice … so waiting for a second dose of that warm fuzzy feeling.

Note to fellow ICICI sufferers: If you file a service request, and receive an email, don’t forget to look beyond the disclaimer at the end … it’s usually the place where they put more important information about the service request.

so, how are you today?

That one is a real poser, you know. You are stumped and speechless, but you have to answer. Immediately. Without actually asking the other guy to (insert suitable colourful scene). But then I came across the Answer for this one:

Whenever you set out to do something, something else must be done first.

Life is a bitch.

Depression unlimited!

Recently earned a new name … “Darwin”!

People around here seem to have been bugged pretty bad by my generally depressed attitude. The last time I used my favourite remark, “Man, this is not just pathetic, its downright depressing!” dear old Shantanu got so bugged, he started looking for a new name.

Darwin, is a take-off on Marvin, the paranoid android, the perpetually depressed robot, from the Hitch Hikers’ Guide, that goes “Here I am, with a brain the size of a planet, and all they ask me to do is open doors!

Shut up,” Shantanu had said, “you think you are Marvin?” … and I had remarked rather passionately that Marvin was better off than I was!

That’s how I ended up with my new name … Darwin! SameerDS – that’s me! Know my middle name? Its DARWIN … even Marwin’s afraid of me!
