Sleep-less in Seattle

Oh !! yeah, I am probably sleeping too much here and that’s a note to myself.

Apologize dudes, I logged out without any notice and it’s been one of my biggest breaks from the blog. Thank for all those assumptions/wishes in the previous post that included being abducted by aliens, aadi maasam cry and sowkiyama stuff. I thoroughly enjoyed them. Someone with the nick ‘an old friend’ had guessed it partly. However, it wasn’t a post that was intended to make you guys blink but just a FYI note to say that I may not be able to update the blog everyday as it was from India.

Anyway, I loved the movie, Sleepless in Seattle. Just for Tom Hanks. Had never expected to be here anyday. Microsoft is just a stroll away from here. Like Chicago, Seattle too has an unpredictable climate. Not-so-cold-not-so-warm types. Rain comes down often without bothering you too much. To be straight, this one is a hillstation like our Ooty. Been wandering on the downtown area for the last week and I’ve lost couple of kgs by that, given the steep roads. Went to a Udipi Cafe last night and nice masala dosa after a week.

Just one more week and I would settle down to start blogging from home. Chennai guys, enjoy Saravana Bhavan and Sun Tv(!!). I’m deprived of them(again !!). This is called as desi crib and it’s starts right here for me.

    Hey man, Got your link from Kiruba. Seattle is one of the best cities to live. I resided in Seattle few years back and it was fun. It was less polluted and less crowded that it is now.
    There are always some activities going on in Seattle. Heard that the tamil gang in Microsoft have their own drama troupe! Let me know if you want any contacts and I shall try to get them for you.

    Anyways, have fun! Did you try Rasoi in Downtown?

    Incidentally, I was in Seattle last week, a beautiful city. When I was there, the climate was very good. I have got some pictures and things you could do over there, if you are interested.

    Welcome to the US!Seattle is one of the most beautiful places in the States.there’s lush green and plenty of rain(for those of us from Chennai who really need to see rain once in a while),all year round. Btw, Is this a temporary assignment or are you here for a long term one?


  14. Lazy Geek Avatar

    Anand, Thanks for that. Can you pass it on to my email address [lazygeek[at]gmail].
