Arsenal did nothing to help their very slim chances of winning the league by failing to pull the trigger in their match against West Ham United. Playing at their home ground, the Gunners had the majority of ball possession and the chances but a determined West Ham foiled a victory. Abou Diaby saw an early header deflected onto the crossbar, and Emmanuel Adebayor missed two good chances in the second half, while even the introduction of leading scorer Robin van Persie from the bench could not conjure up a winner.

Mike Boon introdued me to the music of Regina Spektor, the now almost 29 year old Russian born American singer-songwriter & piano player from New York. Anti-folk music (whatever that is) is her style according to the media but I would put her in along with the music of Tori Amos. I just love red headed piano playing women who have lovely voices.

The mood is not too great in the team, so I have arranged for a lunch out to a restaurant today. That always puts a smile on the team and makes for a fun 2 hours.
I just can’t stand how everyone in management talks about the recession and how tough it is and how we have to make “adjustments” (meaning no hikes for us bottom level people while they rake in the money) – yet the work keeps piling up! Yesterday I was sent the newest report to be maintained by the 2nd of January onwards.
I was invited to go to Bangalore for an interview with a company that wanted a trainer for their technical & sales people on soft skills. The pay sounds extremely enticing but I have decided not to go since it is for insurance & it regards field training as well. I’ll keep searching.
I just realized that I have blogged atleast one post for each day of the month in January! I don’t think that I have done that in a while. It seems like every month the connection goes down for a day or two but it hasn’t in January.
I’ve been re-reading novels at a good pace recently. I finished two books this month, both by John Grisham (The Broker & The King Of Torts) and 2 in December (The Firm & The Brethren) also by Grisham. I need to find a new second-hand book store as there is no way that I am going to shell out Rs.300-500 for a novel.
I also plan to hit the dvd store tomorrow and get a few new movies to watch. I still have Hancock left to watch from my previous shopping. I’m hoping that they will have dvds of some of the tv series that I want to own a copy of. Their selection is really bad.
Update: Due to one of us having a family issue, the lunch out was cancelled or rather postponed until further notice. I know there were some disappointed faces b that can be rectified in a couple of days time.
