Thought for the day: I can resist everything except temptation.

Will someone please explain to me- why does most of blogworld go to sleep on weekends? I see so less of new posts, comments, et al, on Saturday and especially on Sunday, that I feel surprised. I mean, out here, I look forward to spending at least half an hour blog surfing peacefully on Fridays(Our Sunday, in the Gulf). So, does it mean that most:

- Bloggers blog from their work place? OR
- Bloggers are too eye-tired to switch on the PC/laptop on Sundays? OR
- Bloggers devote holidays to their family/ boyfriends/girlfriends only, i.e. only real life, not virtual life? OR
- Bloggers only sleep on weekends? (Grin) OR
- Bloggers reserve weekends for, err, naughtier things than blogging? OR
- Hehehehe (Nee, won’t repeat that thought..keep guessing)

Take your pick and tell me your reasons. I’m curious.
The saga continues…
Yesterday, I was in an unusually good mood, so when I went to our supermarket, I took three one dirham coins, 4 fifty fils and 2 twenty five fils.(Or, perhaps it was a coincidence. LOL). So, the same lady, and, the bill comes to 22.75/-. And, she says ‘2.75 dirham change, Sir?’. I smiled and handed over the change. The smile I got for that- whew…I guess it made her day, to have someone tender the exact change, for a change. (No pun intended).
I’m not too impressed with this week’s caption contest winner. (Frankly, I’m not impressed much with my caption either. Take a look.

End joke:
• Don't Take It Seriously*
- When the DOCTOR says, Take off your clothes.
- When the DENTIST says, Open wide.
- When the HAIRDRESSER says, Do you want it teased or blown?
- When the MILKMAN says, Do you want it in the front or the back?
- When the INTERIOR DECORATOR says, Once it's in, you'll love it.
- When the SHARE BROKER says, It will rise right up, fluctuate for a while and then slowly fall back again.
- When the BANKER says, If you take it out too soon, you'll lose interest .
- When the HUNTER says, Goes deep in the bush, shoots twice and always eats what he shoots.
Till next time, keep smiling

My picks...
- Bloggers devote holidays to their family/ boyfriends/girlfriends only
- Bloggers only sleep on weekends? (Grin)
- Bloggers reserve weekends for, err, naughtier things than blogging?
- Bloggers get busy with the household chores as well!! *:P*

And puhleeeeeeeeez oh please!!!...edit your comment settings Amit. Right now, one has to click on 'comment' and then 'post comment' twice, to get this simple task dome..and depending on the kind of net-connectivity we have sometimes, it gets exhausting!!
