Name Sakes

The domain name that I chose for my blog is Awake & Dreaming. I started using this name for my blog site that I used in Blogger from 2005 and continued with that name ever since. I used to call it Roshan’s Blog-o-matic but changed it to this as I found it a hell of a lot more appropriate. When people ask me why I chose this name, I am usually not quite so forthcoming. If you google for Awake & Dreaming you will find it is several things, like:-

But how I got the name was by the song Awake & Dreaming by Finger 11, which I love so much and plus I thought it would be a cool name and perfectly describes my character. It’s sad & beautiful at the same time.

If I Could Control The Weather In Cochin

I wish I could control the weather in my city.

Cochin has been unbelievably hot this year for the most part. Sometimes a 2 minute walk can have you dripping with sweat pouring from you and leaving you with huge dark circles on your shirt where the armpits are. Nasty stuff!
The respite is when it rains and I am happy to say that it’s been raining a bit now. But not when I want it. I wanted it to rain in the afternoon, say start by 1pm and slowing a bit by 4 or 5 pm. Then it can rain late in the night so there’s a cool breeze over me while I sleep.

Last night there was heavy lightning & thunder – not good. Ofcourse I had to unplug my computer and tv and hope we survived the night. Yes it was quite a spectacle, being able to see it from the 7th floor windows. I prefer the rain to the heat. Infact I love the rain. But the damn thing won’t come when I want it to!
