Christmas During Covid 2021

This is just another day, just another Saturday in a long line of Saturdays. Since Christmas day this year falls on a Saturday, I don’t even get an extra day off. Which sucks because most places will close down for a few days during the end of the year but when you work for a BPO, which is 24 hrs a day, 365 days a week, you do not get a proper holiday season. That’s what you get for working in the customer care industry.

Anyways, I worked yesterday till 12:15 am and then watched some tv as I got into bed. I am enjoying this show called Law & Order : Organized Crime which is amazing by the way. by around 2:30 am I shut down the tv and switched the lights off and went to sleep. This morning I woke up around 10 am and then made two cups of coffee – one with milk and one black. I skipped breakfast and instead listened to some music and watched vlogs on travel and football.


Then it was time for lunch which I had planned on getting a large pizza. P60 was the choice for the day and I also ordered 6 bbq chicken wings. I had 4 slices of the pizza and the wings for lunch and then watched Free Guy before taking an hour’s nap. By evening I was listening to more music, drank more coffee, had a chat with a couple of colleagues and then took a hot shower by 7pm. By 8: 30 I heated up my remaining 4 slices and ate my dinner. Now I am listening to podcasts and I will soon shoot a couple of movie reviews.

I also have some ice cream waiting for me so I better get to that quickly. The last two days have been tough due to the amount of mosquitoes that we’ve been getting in my area. I hate mosquitoes and the way they buzz in your ear and nose and bite you on your feet and ankles. Ugh! Anyway it has been a quiet and peaceful day. Tomorrow, may it be the same.

Online Shopper That I Am

Though I do buy a lot of things online, most of the time it’s smaller things. I also do buy some groceries online from Amazon Pantry or Grocery/Fresh like juice, coffee and chips at times but it has been a while since I have ordered anything other than coffee and things like shampoo, deodorant and shaving cream. I regularly order these last few things as I always seem to get a little offer on these items. Also, I started doing this long before it became easy to get most items on grocery delivery apps.

I also buy my underclothes, a few books, some stationary, sometimes scented candles (like these awesome vanilla latte scented candles I just bought along with a Harley Davidson style lighter) or small little things. I have this thing about coffee mugs and I usually look at getting some different ones here and there. I have recently got a Rs.1000 gift card from the office and I will be getting another Rs.2500 is coming in a few more days. I am looking at a few things, a shirt and maybe an electric body shaver to replace the old one that got defective.

I also want to look at that small table/display case for books which I really like. I think I will get either the shirt plus the razor or get the microphone for my computer that I was looking at. If I have some money left over then I might get another coffee mug, LOL!
