Notes for 29th March

  • Well it seems like I have to make myself available to attend a wedding in Chalakudy on the 22nd of April. Anil & I have to attend Madhu’s younger brother’s wedding.
  • The reception will be held on the 23rd in Thiruvonam Madapam next to the Thrikkakara temple. Having lived near that temple for 19 years and having watched the wedding hall being built slowly over months, I often would joke to my family that I would get married at that hall and nowhere else. I am not close to getting married though.
  • My work hours are so easy and filled with doing almost nothing
  • I spent the day correcting answer papers of a test that was conducted yesterday
  • I again skipped lunch and had some snacks instead
  • Felt very hungry, so had a lovely dinner before coming home
  • There was a hilarious office joke spreading around, which you had to be there for the last 2 months to understand. It was so hard to stop laughing
  • There were sessions on sexual harassment at the office, which the HR took the employees through in batches of 20 each. I skipped it. I already am an expert in sexually harassing a girl
  • Discovered the music of this talented flamenco guitarist pictured below.

Sony Ericsson W580i

As my hunt continues for a new phone, I seem to be finding more and more options in the world of Sony Ericsson mobiles. I don’t believe in keeping a cell phone more than 9 to 10 months as these things evolve so rapidly. You find a gorgeous model with all the necessary things that you want in a cell phone now and 6 months later you look at it like it was an old hag! There will always be better & slicker looking cell phones available in the market and the trick is to keep updating yourself. I am looking for a phone with more expandable memory, better pixel camera (since I can’t go for a digital camera) and a better quality mp3 player (which is optional).

This one probably fits the bill but I might have to wait for a while to go down and try one out. The Sony Ericsson W580i is a gorgeous looking cell. Available in Urban Grey or Style White colors, the W580i is Sony Ericsson’s latest Walkman phone. It sports a 2.0-inch QVGA screen, 2.0-megapixel camera, M2 card slot (512MB included), EDGE, Bluetooth 2.0, USB connectivity, built-in FM tuner, and “music illumination” effects. This slider measures 99 x 47 x 14mm and weighs 94g.

Now you know what to gift me
