Working 8:30 To 5:30!

Ah, work hours that sit well with you, right? I know what you’re saying. Great Roshan, you say, that is the work timings you need. After all the crap of long hours and late nights, you could use a break and work a normal shift. Well sorry to burst that bubble – it’s not what you think. My work hours for this week is 8:30 pm to 5:30 am! The fucking late shift. Oh Zeus!

Well atleast it’s only for a week. Just 3 more days of this shift that is taxing on my 39 year old body. I don’t think I could take much more of this even with more than 6 hours of sleep. Last two nights I reached home by 6:30 am (since the stupid cabs are so late that we have to wait for more than 30 minutes to board them) and went straight to bed. Key in the lock, open the apartment door, remove shoes at door, step in, go to bedroom, take off clothes and slip in between the sheets and zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

I woke up both days by 12:45 pm and feel like one of the worst looking walkers on The Walking Dead. Speaking of which, I have to watch this week’s episode! Ugh! I am so tired. I eat breakfast by 5 am so I don’t wake up feeling so hungry and weak. Coffee is much needed. Oh so glad we have a 3 day weekend coming up!

Leap years; nothing very special but it only comes once every 4 years. So it’s special to some people.

Look at this : From Surrey, Englan Eric Keogh, 52, his daughter Bethany Wealth, 20, and his father Peter Keogh, 76 – were all born on a date which comes just once every four years. The family is believed to be the only one in the world where three generations were born on February 29. Also in the UK Savannah, Alicia and India Bullock were all born on February 29, 2000, and claim they have been ‘cheated’ out of 12 birthdays ever since.

According to the book, Guinness World Records, the Henriksen family of Norway holds the record for most siblings born on leap year. Karin Henriksen gave birth on February 29 three times, to Heidi in 1960, to Olav in 1964 and to Lief-Martin in 1968.

I checked out famous people born on 29th Feb and found singer Khaled, actors Antonio Sabato Jr., Ken Foree, hockey players Henri Richard, Simon Gagne, Cam Ward, Indian politician Moraji Desai and German footballer Benedickt Howedes all have birthdays on the 29th of Feb.
