Soaring at light speed was I,
Looming deep sucking in;
Vicinity of black hole goes thin,
About to be pulled to the third dimension;
Centrifuged out with tangential intervention,
Realized my weighty gravity;
In fact kept me for the daily duty,
I filled an empty dying star;
Brighter of its burning char,
I felt nebulated;
Then, now and ever!!!!!!
Novalgin should have killed 5
My nephew needed some hugging and kissing coz his sickness and constant crying and well he liked me so much that he gave away his fever onto me. With more work during the TGIF I had to sleep only an hr before Saturdays semi final game. Woke up with high fever on Saturday and since I booked the rental car under my name I had to drive it. I could have given the responsibitlty to some junior but they were too sleepy being awake at 4 45 in the morning. To cope up with the issue I had Novalgin for my fever. In half an hour (was driving with four drooling passengers) I realized that my eyesight got dim and blur. I was feeling horribly cold and my feet developed cramps (even before the game). All I can see in front of me was 3 dotted lines and an occasional red tail light every now and then. I realised that the medication had an allergic effect on me.
There were 3 instances of me goin to the shoulder and crashing, but I had to make some serious turns to avoid everything and thank God that the guys were sleeping real hard that they dint notice anything. By the time I reached Waffle house for breakfast my eyesight was still worse. All I can see in front of me was anything for 2 feet and completely blurred too. My right eye became red and my face swollen. Went to the restroom immediately and washed my face and puked some dinner into the drain. Stayed in for a couple of mins and then went for breakfast. Since it was the coffee table setup none of the guys saw the reaction. By the time I finished my breakfast my face turned normal, eyesight still bad but better, and my right leg completely senseless.
Thank God that we had a small chit chat for a couple of mins after breakfast and slowly my eyesight became close to normal. Went to the ground safe, took some time off and then during catch practice all I was concentrating was anything red colored and glove shaped.
Decided not to open adn thank God I dint and went at last. To encourage the team I had to yell really hard and now am having a paining throat. The fielding was the worst experience. After the game I was happy that I never let a run go beyond me, took a catch and had a near run out. But the times I ran on the field my head felt painful and the sun made sure that I had to faint (luckily kept my senses shouting and encouraging).. All these dint make me lose heart, but I was real pissed off when the juniors gave up half way through the second innings. I hated seeing the faces of these juniors who never had the slightest interest in putting their effort.
By the time I drove back to Lexington I was feeling fine. Drove back at average 90 mph on a 70 mph with full anger and concentration. Had a good dinner with the neighbors, felt sick again and went for sleep at 1. Woke up at 1 today and am feeling fine except those blurred images of trucks and shoulders coming into my mind.
Am never gonna take novalgin in my life. Am never gonna drive a car on the interstate with an allergic eyesight. Am never gonna play in the hot sun with fever and allergy up on my back... and Am never gonna shout at the top of my voice to encourage some born losers.

Return of the Red Phoenix
Forgot the world in the happenings of my dreams,
For the first time saw a lightning,
Winks of harmonics;
Forgotten hearts of songs;
The clouds are thirsty over the red phoenix -
I had been having more fun than what you can think off. I am crazily happy with my work coz now I am proving myself as well as my guide that I do not sit around doin nothing. Got a new set of expts and analysis to keep me on the wire. Good news is I stopped keeping things in my head and am playing life. Had a wonderful move in to a new temporary apt (the permanent shall be on the 6th of this month which is near the temporary place).
I am more jovial with peopel especially with new fresh years who find it interesting to stick around me. Though I am living on the edge of my economic bankruptcy my money managing skills is keeping me live more. I did take debts, but I repay it with a dinner course too. Saved a couple of hundred bucks by not going to any restaurant. This would continue for a while. Been cracking too many jokes as the day progressess. Managed to satisfy a group of individuals who were important to themselves and not to me. I've been laughing out loud and from the heart instead of faking one for true.
My blog has been read by IT proffessionals who comment on it on the cricket ground (whom I haven't met in my life before). My skills though a lil rustic is proving to cause an impact on the winning note for the team. Been promoted from 4th down to opening and still scored the highest in the team on a rainy highly swinging day. Need to win one more game to make it to the semis.
Umpiring is turning out to be good (Hey IT guys, stop reading ur Umpires blog and work on ur job). Have faced my shadows with a bright mind and it worked good.
Though I've been out of much sleep over the days, my body is starting to set in to a rhythm. Been food poisoned during a game, but I've been doing great with the thought of my heart and just in my mind. Lots happening and lots of whitness sparkling off my face. I found a solution for my back problems by playing badminton. Am just happy guys... Do not worry about me. I've been going on a positive mind. Things are turning good though they were a shock initially. All I wanna do now is take a break, get a car and drive to a beautiful place and take some snaps with my camera. I haven't touched my camera for a while and I do not know why. That is the only thing I am worried about. PS my flute lessons have improved, and have composed a few notes. Am well organized in my reasearch now a days and my guide is feeling happy about my working style. All I miss now is my camera and my cooking time. Need to cook something new soon..... I guess this should prove you friends that I am not lonely and not bored or worried... I am fine and am doing great. For people who asked me about this question I am fine.. Come and lets dance together....
