it's been quite a downer of a week. my watch strap has broken. now, the seconds needle has come loose. i don't want to get a new one because i love it. it was a present. too much value to be left forgotten. gotta get it fixed asap.
and to my horror, i dropped my love. not my car, of course. i can't possibly drop my car. my other love, my bb. now it's got a little crack at the top. my heart is shattered.
the other day, i forgot my airport pass when i went to work. luckily it was in my car. but you know, the carpark isn't exactly nearby. already the mighty sun was scorching, by the time i reached the office again, i looked and felt like i just came out the sauna.
i haven't been to the gym in ages. this belly isn't going away by itself, sharman. reason? carry on reading.
i had three days off which i spent wailing and still wailing from my omnipresent tonsilitis. i could barely speak at one point because it was so irritant. i couldn't fly because it was inflamed till my ears were blocked. i never got it this bad. yes, i'm considering getting it removed. does company insurance cover? hmmm...
that's a lot of whining. now, something to look forward to. annual leave starting the 4th. home, here i come. if i hadn't been to the gym in ages, well then i haven't been back in jb for decades. i miss home. deepavali with the family.
in the words of destiny's child, to spend some quality t-i-m-e.
i have this obsession. i think the sunsets i get to see, are amazing. it's quite a different view from up there. it feels like you're chasing it. but you're never getting there. everytime it's a game of despair. but i never give up. coz i know if i give up, it'll be the end of me. a pointless journey. for i always think of what could be. what if one day, i do catch up with the sunset as crazy as it sounds? what if one day everything falls into place? no more questions left unanswered? what if.
in aviation telephony/pilot language,
"roger" basically means understand.
i don't know how the term came up,
i don't wanna know,
because it's a term i was taught not to use.
it's just a little too vague of a reply.
when you communicate with the air traffic controller,
they love to reply you with a "roger".
it sounds more like a "raj".
silent "er" i guess?
it's a lame joke,
but everytime i get that,
"i'm no raj. i'm sharman"
so i literally laughed my ass off,
when the captain turned to me and said,
"who the **** is raj?!"
