Strangely enough, for a song that still remains popular today with more than 3,000 recorded cover versions, the first hitting the United Kingdom top 10 three months after the release of Help! & having (BMI) assert that it was performed over seven million times in the 20th century alone & was voted the best song of the 20th century in a 1999 BBC Radio 2 poll of music experts and listeners – Yesterday was never a UK#1!
I think today & yesterday were among the worst days in recent memory. Today was also quite hectic for me. The days immediately following my birthday are not looking promising at all.
But I am glad to see an email that came in – it doesn’t mean that everything is ok, but it means that I have hope and that I have lots of work to do on that front.
Its getting a bit messed up at work and therefore it’s becoming a huge head-ache for me. I have some issues that need to be sorted out and sorted out soon.
Its frustrating to be helpless when someone you care deeply about is hurting and is really upset. And is also upset with you because you represent something that angers her. Time & space! Time & space.
I went yesterday to order for some work pants to be stitched at a place nearby. They have an amazing store and it’s really cool. Although it was also a bit weird at 8 pm and almost no other customers there.
I woke up bright and early at 6 am :) and watched music videos on Youtube. I was just in that mood. I read a few blogs. I got a few calls by around 8 am and attending to those took up a long time, so I reached the office by around 11 am. I sat down and read my mail while my team members went on their way to pretend to ignore me and act like they didn’t know that it was my birthday! Silly thing really; a few days ago, one of them actually checked with me to confirm that it was on the 2nd and I told her that we would all go out for lunch that day!
Well, the woman, the one I like, called me at around 12 pm to sing me ‘happy birthday’ and wish me for the day. She wanted me to go out and have some fun and not think of anything else. I said that it was impossible and I also asked her not to say ‘may all your wishes come true’, because my biggest wish wouldn’t come true. She was still trying to keep me in good spirits.

They came in together, singing and wishing me and gave me the gift. It was a nice clock cum table lamp that is in the shape of a old style ship! I love it and it sits next to my computer now. We then went to cut the cake and splat! I was covered with chocolate gooey cake & cream – it was in my eyes, my nose, my ears and all over my face. It took two thorough washings to get rid of it.
We then went out to lunch and had a good 2 hours there. Then it was back to the office & later a couple of us went for some drinks at the Velocity bar. It was nice and the food was good but extremely pricey. Remind me never to eat food from there again!
It’s been almost 3 days since I posted here. I’ll explain.
I came back home on Saturday night at around 11 pm. I was exhasuted and just quickly entered a post (the one below) and I watched a dvd for a while before falling asleep. The next day, I woke up at around 9:30 am only to find that there was no electricity. I lazed around until 11, thinking of what to do to pass the time. After the power came back on, I realized that my internet connection was gone. A quick call to my ISP’s call center told me that it may take them till Monday to check & rectify the problem, it being a Sunday and all.
So I registered a complaint and then spent most of the day lying on my bed, listening to music and watching Friends episodes on dvd. I only got out of bed to eat, drink water/coffee or take a leak. Monday came and went and no internet. I called them up last night at around 10 (I only reached home at that time) and found out that some idiot truck driver had driven his truck over the internet cable and cut the damn thing. So it took them a long time to get it fixed.
That explains my online absence. I did check my mail & stuff from the office but I don’t much time to do anything more than that.

On my birthday I’d like to share with my few readers the song that is so me, it’s like the lyrics were written about a person like me. Just substitute the ‘tea’ with ‘coffee’. It’s one of my very, very favourite songs, in my top 3 of all time. It’s No Rain by Blind Melon. Enjoy!
I just want someone to say to me, “I’ll always be there when you wake”
You know I’d like to keep my cheeks dry today, So stay with me & I’ll have it made
The salary finally came creeping in just before lunch. It got delayed all across the various branches and I think it will taken till Monday to get cleared.
I had a busy day at work, with it being the end of the month and reports & ppts needed to get completed. I also had to finish a report that was sent in for the person who I have assigned to my previous post but since she is new to it, I completed it myself and finished it just in time.
It seems that the department has done well this month, just as the same as last month and I got recognition for it. I almost broke down when it was compared to her. I can’t accept any accolades for it.
I slowly made my way back home in a company cab. I am tired and I don’t want to go back.
Not only has the company delayed the annual appraisal because they want to restructure their budget and stuff, they have also delayed our usual monthly pay time. We normally get it by the 30th or 31st evening. It’s August 1st and I am broke and the money has not come in yet. I went to the ATM last night at around 8:15 pm and I have been checking my account through the bank’s website from 10 pm.
It’s not creditted yet. I am so broke that I can just about go to work and come back. Nothing else.
