Zoning out in 4...3...2...1...


Let me take you through a series of incidents here.

When I am arguing with my friends on a political topic, and when I am in the verge of winning it, in that intense moment, I get zoned out. I am teleported to another dimension like they show in the Interstellar movie. What do you think happens next? I smile, err, no, I grin as if I won the argument but what actually happened was the opposite and my friend called me nuts and a new argument began.


Zombie Zone, will be back to human arena in 3 2 1 0.... @@@

When I am watching a match, football match to be precise, the husband walks away for picking up the juice can from the fridge. I always watch TV like there are people sitting in it/ playing in it/ sleeping in it; both eyes peering and giving it the most attention possible. Well, when the husband comes back running I realize his favourite team just scored. I blink twice, thrice and look at him. He stiffens his brows and then I know, I was zoned out again. How could I do that in the middle of an abso-beeping-lutely thrilling match? O’Keefe or the Moser duo should tell me.

'Ain't I a cutie pie?' reaction :P

Now, dig on this one. I am in the middle of a driving lesson; I am being taught, if you were wondering. The instructor, very kind and patient urged me to practice on a highway on the second day I touched a real steering wheel. What confidence?! I was driving like a pro, until I spotted that hairy (Hay hay), devil faced, yellow truck that came straight at me. I didn't panic, nor did I brake. I just stared into the yellow eternity for what seemed forever and meanwhile the instructor had her side of the brakes hit at the right moment after yelling at me for what seemed like a hundred times (for her) and I zoned in when my hand hit the horn. The instructor’s expression was priceless.

That would be me in reality had she not hit the brakes :P

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

 So, this December, I will share the craziest, fun-filled, extravagant, creative, pompous and terrific thoughts of mine with you. I love to share my joy of writing with you and that is what it is all about, sharing is caring and sharing is joy. So, what gives me joy in zoning out you ask? Well, the precious reactions when I get back to reality on the faces of my friends and loved ones. It is worth it, I tell y’ all! :)

  2. I would call zoning out as mind wandering. It is not a bad thing. It might lead to creative insights.

'Yo-Yo' Tribe - A Meme

OK. Time for some fun, folks! Walk down the streets of any city, you are sure to find weirdos of all kinds. I am not being judgmental here, but trust me, there are a bunch of people who think of themselves as the coolest tribe on earth and the cool-ness is defined by their hair-dos and hair styles.  Let me give you some examples here...

Beginning the meme with a Zen-like look. I should admit that this look is more 'yogic' than weird. But only until he doesn't untie that bun on top! I name them the Zen tribe! :D
This style screams attention; attention from railroad signals to be specific. There are so many parallel tracks for trains to ply! The Awesome Railroad Tribe!

Well, well, I only get to see between my strands of hair and this is called 'Looking- through-the-hair-look'. "Are you smiling? winking? blushing? I don't have a clue!"

Optimum behavior of a productive techie

How to optimize your behavior to become a productive techie?
No emails, no trouble – If you don’t listen to my advice you will end up being buried under a billion emails, most of them unread by the end of this year. Emails are infectious. The biggest hindrance to a techie’s productivity, is emails. As long as you can stick to messages confined to the subject area like the one below, it is fine. But do not go beyond that and don’t you touch the body! Get independence from your emails, be a loud and shameless conversationalist. Be a caveman, do not ping, do not email, just go talk to the person next to you.

[Home and Decor] :: Ideas for a perfect home

I have long been envisioning a place which is soulful and dreamy; a place that would like to call home.The essentials of my idea of a perfect home are:
Family and friends – They are the soulfulness and the life of every home. They are indeed those elements that make a ‘house’ a ‘sweet home’. Can’t do without’em!
Space – I am stuck with this space conundrum every time I enter an under-construction building. There seems to be a gap here. There were homes in earlier days which advocated spatial freedom and now everyone seem to look for compact homes. Think about living in concrete boxes?! I understand the money-factor involved but some with enough and more are unwilling to go for a spacious place too. The heritage houses of south India are perfect examples of space management when it comes to homes.
Sunlight - Who wants to live in a cave or a scary house?! In Vasthu Shastra and Feng Shui, we would notice a simple yet striking similarity which encompasses the need for sunlight to flow throu…
