Menobabble 'Bout the Bubble

As the sleep counter clicks away the valuable time between now and flying, the scheduling of posts has been going on apace. Still work to be done, but am content that all that can be done has been getting done. The important one, as mentioned before, is the teaching bloggy (Aatmavrajanam), and that is pretty much completed. This one will have to take its chances.

I could have just left things and done what I could whilst away. Pretty sure the sky wouldn't collapse. However, things took a side-dive when YAMspetoo, the tablet, had a sudden-death event. It is not a software collapse, this one. Hardware's gone bust.

Not surprising, to be honest. I don't half belt the bejiggery out of my computers.

Of course it is out of warranty and, frankly, cost of repair is not competitive, as these models are much reduced in price now.  So much changes in two years and what was fairly cutting-edge now looks troglodyte.

Sigh. This means that darling old Vindaloo Voo-voo the Vaio of Mumbai is doubling up on its workload at the moment.

Plus I don't have hardware to pack for OZ. This is actually rather freeing. I shall be able to beg and borrow equipment on the other side, so am not worried. Neither am I too concerned at loss of Y2 - other than that I loved it and miss its convenience - because I kept next to no files actually on the hardware; everything is in The Cloud. ... and on pen drives.

Meanwhile, at the risk of being self-promotional for a moment, I received my next item from RedBubble. Confession time; hello, my name is YAM and I am a scarfaholic. I am indiscriminate. Shawls and wraps are also imbibed. Fabrics of wool or silk are favoured. However, modern fibres are not ignored if they are of highest quality.

This 100% polyester microfibre is of the highest quality... as is the printing of my original artwork upon it. .... there are two more on order........



  1. That throw is lush. LUSH! You certainly are working overtime in order to leave.

    1. Hari Om
      ....it is! ... and I have been. A lot of all-nighters for about a week; and actually, having preposted this, it is a tad out of date, for all posts were completed by Friday. woohoo.... Yxx

  2. Love the throw! Hope you sort out your technical issues!

  3. very pretty, hope things get better for ya.

    Aroo to you,

  4. That is really pretty!!


  5. I'm a scarf-a-howlic too... and I bet to wear one like yours feels like having "home" always around you :o)

  6. "I don't half belt the bejiggery out of my computers." I love your turn of phrase! Me, too.
    I'm so excited for you!
