Wanting to talk...

...or listen.

You know there are times...when you have a swarm of friends but no one to talk to really.
By that I don't by any means want to belittle my friends. I have some great friends and they are always there for me. But then those friends too have things happening in their lives and being the person that I am, I always put others before me. Not something that I am bragging about. It's actually a pretty lame thing to do sometimes.

Now, you probably know what kind of 'talk' I am referring to.
If you don't-
This is the 'talk' about 'my' life, 'my' day, 'my' happenings, 'my' everything.
Being able to share those without feeling that the person on the other end is getting more burdened by the minute as I am filling their ears with endless words about 'my' life.

I am not writing this post as a means to gain sympathy or in search of a soulmate. I am just writing this because although it doesn't really bother me exponentially and isn't life-altering bad, it's like that permanent itch that's always there.
I love listening to my friends though...truly.

No, that's not him---that's a gyro.
Atanu is a dear friend. Everyone's dear friend. Always there for everyone and their moms.
Very funny, very kind, very generous, very cute, very warm...all the good superlatives out there...all of them can be attributed to him. We went to the outlet mall today and enjoyed some great succulent beef gyros with tzatziki sauce. Just beautiful. The guy at the gyro place was nice enough to share the sauce recipe with me. I will attempt a rendition next week for some special people.

Ugly Betty

Have been indoors since yesterday after work...
Did some school stuff today morning...
Been eating at a ridiculous rate--spring semester is always the 'get-fat-that-you-go-two-sizes-up' kind of semester. ah whatever. not like anyone's looking at me or I am looking at anyone...
Been kind of achy all over today...
Smeared Bengay, Vicks, etc. all over to get that menthol-y feeling
Now watching 'Ugly Betty' Season 2 since like 8pm...love this show!

So sick of love songs...

--And everything romantic, sunny, beautiful.
Dude---it's soooo cold here its not even funny. I mean people's nostrils, ears, heads, etc. are all about to fall off its that cold.
I am working at night tonight from 5 to 9pm. Not too crazy about that either just because I don't like going home at that late.
My torturous paper awaits my undivided attention. And I need to fix the IRB protocol. So much to do and so little time and the weather adds to the anguish.
And I drew this eye on my own..in paint of course.

And I am so sick of love songs...

Hating it.

I am not crazy about Buffalo right now

Too cold. Too gloomy. Too ugly.

Oh- Heath Ledger is dead. He was only 28. Tragic

Back in the Ruff Buff

Just got here yesterday and woke up 4 hours ago from a 10 hour slumber.
I am so done with jetlags!
Flight was entertaining. Met a girl who was going to buffalo and went to my high school.
Sophomore at UB. Nice girl. Met her while getting off the Abu Dhabi to London flight.
We chit chatted in Heathrow and then realized our seats for the London to JFK were next to each other. Spooky!
Fun trip overall but tiring.

Now getting ready to work on the paper and class today at 4pm.

List of annoying things (the sequel)

1) You know when you (females usually) are really tired, stressed and having a bad or really rushed day and guys get fresh with you. Vexation is not fun. I absolutely detest. I don't like being teased, pestered, coaxed, etc. at all period but when guys do it when we womenfolk are truly not in the mood, it annoys to an extent you'd never know.

2) You know when you're almost done getting over some thought, some place, something or someone and that thought, place, thing or person come back into your life. Causes immense disturbance. Immense.

3) Smelly public restrooms. Who tinkles all over the seat? Who doesn't flush? Whose pee smells that much?

More later...

Semi-fruitful visit

Sorry dear blog that I haven't been here in sometime.
It's hard when you don't have internet connection at home.
Still in Dhaka, Bangladesh. It's a hustling bustling city.
I have been attending wedding shenanigans.
I have also been visiting relatives and friends.
All being done in 14 days. Craziness.

The reason for adding the semi in the fruitful visit is because of a certain reason.
Can't be too explicit here.
