Short Term Memory Loss

It’s all dispatched… the book, the crystal, the painting, and whatever else needed to be dispatched… it’s all been couriered (finally!)…

I had planned to take a photograph of the painting before packing it and sending it off, but, I forgot! I completely forgot about it!

It’s happening a lot these days... these short-term memory lapses! My Dad suggested yesterday I should start making a daily to-do list once again. I used to do that a few years ago, when I had too much work to do in too little time. So making a list used to help me prioritize tasks and also made sure I didn’t forget anything. Guess I’ll have to start doing it again now. I don’t want to forget taking a photograph of this other painting too (the one I’m making for Chachi)!

Oh btw, I got those jig-saw puzzles for my cousins eventually. The one for Radhika (the 4-year old) is pretty cool. Along with fitting the correct pieces together, it even attempts to teach simple addition and subtraction, and since she’s already learnt the numbers till 100, it seemed like a good choice.

But, the one for Rishabh (the 10-year old) isn’t quite as difficult as I wanted! It’s a 4-picture set with 30 pieces in each picture. But because Rishu has such a sharp memory, he’ll simply memorize which piece goes where, once he’s able to complete those puzzles 3-4 times! So I was hoping to find something with a higher difficulty level, but it didn’t quite work out that way! Anyways, I have a feeling that once he’s memorized all his pictures, he’ll find it equally exciting to teach his little sis how to fit them together! So peace!

Did I mention that I’m really looking forward to this trip? :D He he!

Oh and I’m also going to have another baby there! :D Yupp! Ha ha! I have so many of them by now, that I have even lost all count! There is one in Delhi with my sister; another one with my uncle here in Patna, and 2 more at the 2 shops he owns; then there is one with this couple who went with me to Chennai… oh and another one which came into existence not too long ago – it’s with my other chacha here in Patna! And of course, the one that stays with me!

Ha ha ha! Didn’t you figure it out by now? I’m talking about all the computers that I have set up since I left Dell tech support! All the computers that come to me for being “fixed” end up going through a complete “format-reinstall” the first time, with separate partitions for programs and data, AND some very serious warnings to their owners against allowing any other technician to mess with them anymore! I am extremely possessive about all my “babies” and I believe that people who can’t give them the TLC (Tender Love & Care!) they deserve should not be allowed to touch them!

Well my chacha in Guwahati also has a computer at home, which needs to be “fixed” big time (ha ha!) … and this means that another “baby” is in the line! I love tech support! I could go back to Dell today, if only they’d agree to put me on a regular day-shift! Sighhhhh!

LOL! I probably didn't know about comment spammers back then. I should probably have never published that comment! :P Will go ahead & delete it. Thanks for bringing to my notice.

You're most welcome. Feed me.

At 9:47 pm, you're asking me to feed you! Didn't u already have your dinner by then?

Abhiroop Banerjee said...

Yes, I must have had my dinner. In fact, I could have been in the middle of dinner too. That is immaterial, however, to your sworn duty to keep me nourished with a steady supply of AJ.
