It’s getting creepier.
- First, I just clung to the computer for a couple of more hours after my work-day ended.
- Then, I started returning to it after the evening tea.
- Recently, I’ve begun to return to my work-desk after dinner.
- Yesterday, I was up all night.
You may wonder why.
You may also wonder why this is a big deal.
Because despite the fact that I am beginning to look like one, I am no night-owl. I am an early-to-bed-and-early-to-rise kind of character, who has attained none of the three promised goodies by adhering to this adage, the wisdom of which I seriously doubt. (especially the wealth part – I think it should be stripped away because it misleads children into acquiring a potentially harmful habit that has severe social side-effects.)
But I stray.
I was telling you that I’ve been working extra-hard and extra-long (Now, if you are reading more into those words than you should, your mind too is working extra-hard and extra-long,) with nothing to show for it. I’ve kept the project secret from wifey and that has made her imagination go wild. She’s been at her accusatory-best. For Ghar ki Shanti (Peace at Home,) we are not really talking a lot these days. The dog has sided with wifey. (If I were my dog, I’d do the same. It’s smart to side with the one to fills your plate than with this dreadful apparition called Anandhotep.)
So why am I doing it?
I have risked wifey’s wrath and my dog’s indifference for my blogging buddies. You’ve inspired me to take on a non-billable time-guzzling project that has turned my world upside down.

(Heartfelt apologies if I’ve missed your blog in this list. A reminder will be deeply appreciated.)
All of you are the reason why I am spending every waking moment of mine on this project.
Everyone on this list, everyone who’s ever commented or liked this blog – be prepared! Wifey and the dog have just been waiting for this list. In wifey’s own words, “it’s about time.” Time for what? Go figure.
PS1: The dog doesn’t bite.
PS2: Stay Tuned. The Anandhotep Mystery will soon be resolved – hopefully with drum rolls. (Clueing you in: sketches, caricatures, parodies, jokes, fun!)
PS3: Whatever wifey says or does, know this that I am forever indebted to you, my dear blogger-friends. You are all awesome!
