Barcamp Kerala 6 (Ernakulam)

On the 11th of October, Barcamp Kerala heads back to the city of Cochin. BCK6 will be held at the Rajagiri School of Engineering & Technology.

If you remember, back in May, I had wanted to attend BCK5 in Trivandrum but at the last moment my plans changed and I was unable to attend. This time, as it is going to held close to the area that I work at, I really need to ensure that I can be there.

The only problem is work and it, along with ill-health, will be the only reasons as to why I will not be able to attend. I want to take in atleast a few sessions at the most. So far only 3 sessions have been confirmed but in a few more days, I’m sure that will change.

Cold Sunday Melancholy

If every Sunday is like this one, I might be content to stay in and be lazy all day. As it is, I have the place to myself and so my morning has been listening to music, browsing youtube videos and drinking coffee. It’s been raining a lot since last evening and the morning has been breezy and cold. Cold enough to want to snuggle under the covers and go back to sleep.

But since I woke up at 8:40 am I decided that I wasn’t going to spend the entire morning in bed and got up and read the paper at the dining table. My folks have gone to a funeral and will be out for most of the day. I watched tv for a bit – the news, a football special on the goals scored in the EPL last evening and most of a Hope & Faith episode. Then it was more coffee.

At 1 pm this afternoon a rude, loud continous blast of fire crackers hit this lazy Sunday. I suppose that it’s something to do with the end of Ramzan – but wait! Isn’t Eid ul-Fitr supposed to be on Monday? So why the fireworks?

I’m gonna take a long nap later after lunch and watch some sci-fi. I won’t be going out this Sunday as I am kinda short on cash at the moment. It’s almost a month since I’ve had any vodka or gone out for any coffee. It’ll have to wait another or 10 days at the most. It’ll sure be worth the wait.
