The doofus that I am, I hadn’t even set up the little ‘subscribe’ thingie for my blog yet. I’ve managed to figure it out and install it. Do click on the links in the sidebar if you find yourself craving an update of my ramblings.
Harking on to the real post now!
Every morning Astroyogi.com proffers, by way of iGoogle, a prediction of how my day is likely to unfold. (I was almost about to write ‘unlikely to fold’ there). And every day, naturally, there is a disconnect. Today was no exception.
What my horoscope said:
This is a great day to spend with friends and having loads of fun. Kick off those shoes and just relax! A good day to rejuvenate yourself, express your ideas and be adventurous. You have not done this in a long time and when you get opportunities such as this, you must use it to refresh your mind. What a change from your usual routine!
What actually happened:
Let’s break up the above into individual sentences.
This is a great day to spend with friends and having loads of fun.
Without even considering the grammar side of things, this sentence holds no water. I didn’t meet any of my friends, considering it was a weekday. As for the second part, here’s all the fun I had today:
- Designed five diagrams in Microsoft Visio
- Documented two processes
- Reviewed another process document
A good day to rejuvenate yourself,…
Yes I did this, by splashing water in my face every hours to prevent falling into a deep slumber at my desk.
… express your ideas…
This, too, I did, and they were well-received.
and be adventurous.
I tried out a 10-pt font for a small process box. That’s how far my adventures went.
You have not done this in a long time…
Damn right about that.
… and when you get opportunities such as this, you must use it to refresh your mind.
My mind has been wiped clean, leave alone refreshed.
What a change from your usual routine!
Indeed! I look forward to the day when I can draw diagrams and write boring documents 24×7.
Do you follow horoscopes in newspapers and the like?
