Mind Numbing Mind Map

Ok, this post is nothing like the title suggests. I was in Manipal a few days ago (I would like no questions as to why I was there - Judging by recent traffic at this site, I'm thinking there will be none.) and I drew this in a stoned frame of mind. I was remembering all the good times we had in the place as well as the bad. And just like thoughts are never stagnant when we are stoned, I started thinking about my dad and his constant complaint - I have a lot of friends. So here it is, my dear readers:

Oh yeah! Click on the image for an enlarged view.

Planning on making a short Flash animation on this with some audio. Obviously you guys will be the first to know.

Ha ha! I was wrong about the fact that no one reads the blog. Apparently I (we) have our very own Cyber Stalker. Details and huge write-up later. Promise! ;)

I'm writing, but not for you SCOFF!

Well, yes the heading is true. It's not that I'm abandoning ship but I have got a chance, albeit a non paying one, to write for a start-up sports blog. How did this happen? You see, as soon as I come to work, I open a football site and read through all the content for the day till lunch (My fears of the IT dept. reading this are creeping up again) then I read through whatever was said about Arsenal FC anywhere in the world for a few hours after lunch. I start my work or Alt-Tab only after that. This was or rather is still noticed by all and sundry. One of my co-workers just walked up to me and asked me if I was so interested in football that all that he could see on my screen at any given point of time was football or Aresenal. I gave him the look of "You think!" and continued reading till he asked me if I would be interested in writing for a blog on sports. That's when I had his total attention. And hopefully the adage 'Rest is history' comes true in this case.

In total e-learning style: Click here to view my first post. You can also get to the blog via the "We Recommend" gadget on the right of the page.

Do leave comments and let me know what you think of it. I couldn't get a username of choice so it's my real name there. Don't malign me (I know you guys can't, so don't even try). Happy reading!

And yeah I will try not to ignore S.C.O.F.F.
